The Vision of the Super-Cosmic Female Arch-Angel

On May 23rd 1587 Doctor John Dee's personal child angel named Madimi returned with her Big Sister or Mother as part of a wonderful Vision in which this Mystery Woman announced:
I am the daughter of fortitude, & ravished every hour, from my youth, for behold, I am understanding, & science dwells in me ; & the heavens oppress me, They covet and desire me with infinite appetite few or none that are earthly have embraced me for I am shadowed with the circle of the Sun ; and covered with the morning clouds; My feet are swifter than the winds, & my hands are sweeter than the morning dew. My garments are from the beginning; & my dwelling place is in my self. The lyon knows not where I walk ; neither do the beasts of the field understand me. I am deflowered & yet a virgin. I sanctify & am not sanctified happy is he that embraced me. for in the night season I am sweet, in the day full of pleasure my company is a harmony of many Cymbals And my lips sweeter than health it self.
I am a harlot for such as ravish me ; and a virgin with such as know me not ; for lo I am loved of many ; & I am a lover to many; and as many as come unto me as they should do, have their entertainment. Purge your streets o you sons of men, & wash your houses clean Make your selves holy, & put on righteousness Cast out your old strumpets, & burn their clothes Abstain from the company of other women that are defiled, that are sluttish, & not so handsome, & beautiful as I. And then will I come & dwell amongst you. And behold I will bring forth Children unto you; & they shall be the sons of comfort I will open my garments, & stand naked before you that your love may be more inflamed toward me.
As yet, I walk in the clouds, As yet, I am carried with the winds ; And can not descend unto you for the multitude of your abominations, & the filthy loathsomeness of your dwelling places. Behold these four, who is he, that shall say, they have sinned ; or unto whom shall they make account? Not unto you, you sons of men, nor unto your children ; for unto the lord belongs the Judgment of his servants.
Now therefor, let the earth give forth her fruits unto you ; And let the maintains forsake
their barrenness where your footsteps shall remain. happy is he that salutes you ; & cursed is he that holds up his hands against you. & power shall be given unto you from hence forth to resist your enemies ; & the lord shall always here you in the times of your troubles.
And I am sent unto you to play the harlot with you; And am to enrich you with the spoils of other men ; prepare for me, for I come shortly. Provide your Chambers for me that they may be sweet & cleanly ; for I will make a dwelling place amongst you ; and I will be common with the father & the sun, yea and with all them that truly favors you for my youth, is in her flower and my strength is not to be extinguished with man. Strong am I above & below. Therefor, provide for me. for behold I now salute you. And let peace be amongst you ; for I am the Daughter of Comfort. Disclose not my secrets unto women ; nether let them understand how sweet I am; for all things belongs not unto every one.

I [will?] come unto you again.
