Date Created/Published: [London] : Thomas, Printer, 5 Golden-Lane, Barbican, 1803 August.
Medium: 1 print : etching, hand-colored.
Summary: Print shows Satan holding a balance to which, on one end is attached a hot-air balloon with a bishop, possibly the Duke of York, and another man standing on top, its lightness has skewed the balance to end over end; at the other end is a parachute with three men standing in the basket, it is about to crash on the coast of England. Behind Satan are storm clouds, lightning, and a flame emitting serpent; they may represent the gathering storm of the threat of invasion by Napoleon.
Includes lengthy text with several speakers and numerous citations from the Bible, such as "Behold the Balance of unequel Freight as recent Prophets tell" Ez xviii 25, and as "Bony" Napoleon says, "He! he! he! I have got them all now! I'll lead them a dance to the point of the lance, on the top of the air Balloon" Isa xxxvi 12, vide x 3., Jer v 31, Amos ix 2, 3-10, Oba 10. It concludes with an "Invitation: Say, O ye sons of Ephraims, care, what joy? what glory will you share? / When to the world sweet peace returns, by the zeal your bosom burns; / Then join with me ye men forlorn! for unto you a son is born! the delegate of heaven Isa lxvi 9, vide xix 23, 24, 25 / ... * Say unto the cities of Juda, behold thy God, say unto the daughters of Zion, thy God reigneth, for unto you that fear his name shall the son of righteousness arise with healing in his wings, and to him shall the gathering together of all people be" Mal iv 2.'

The image shows people who rise above other people with the help of Satan. Of course the helper will oblige but at what price. Slaves of Satan want to be overlords of people. At any time the bubble can burst...and the higher people climb the further they have to fall.
Thee men are below in a air balloon to be carried by the elements. As long as people are reliant on those above them to lift them up, they might be blind to who their master is.
If a servant of Satan is the head of a church, that means the people underneath are subject to Satan too. Who gives who power in this world? Who is your overlord?
From the text above, is the Duke of York - a Bishop?
Keep an open mind....
Notice in America, the authority of God is the choice. The Oath of office is taken to God Almighty and perhaps officials have a good idea of what is happening beyond what we are told.
Museums, preservers of truth from history.
