I was primarily alerted to this sermon through John Piper's God Is the Gospel, which makes reference to this work several times. It is a sermon preached in 1734 on Matthew 16:17 "Blessed art thou Simon Bar-Jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven." It can also be found in Works of Jonathan Edwards, Vol. 2

In the sermon, Edwards explains what he means by "divine and supernatural light." It is not those things that man may understand naturally by his conscience or a sense of the wickedness of sin. Nor is it impressions made upon the imagination like "a visible lustre or brightness of any object." It is not a discovery of any new truths not found in the word of God. Nor is it just being inwardly affected by religious things. This last point is made powerfully as he explains how a man can be affected by the sufferings of Jesus Christ "as by any other tragical story." And even more so simply because of the "interest he conceives mankind to have in it." Man can be affected with the ideas of heaven, as well as by "a romantic description of the pleasantness of fairy land."

Divine and spiritual light, rather, is "a real sense and apprehension of the divine excellency of things revealed in the word of God… He does not merely rationally believe that God is glorious, but he has a sense of the gloriousness of God in his heart.
