Lastly, We must not confound Justification with the manifestation and declaration of it in our hearts and consciences. This is the rock at which the Antinomian doth so often split, he supposeth Justification to be from all eternity, and that therefore a man is Justified before he doth believe; Faith only justifying by evidence and declaration to our consciences: but this is to confound the decree of God, and its execution … .

Hence it is a dangerous thing, though some excellent men have done it, to make Faith a full persuasion of our Justification, for this supposeth Justification before Faith; It is one thing to be Justified, and another thing to be assured of it. It is true, we cannot have any peace and comfort, nor can we so rejoice in, and praise God, though we are justified, unless we know it also.

For the reference, see Anthony Burgess on the Antinomian concept of eternal justification.
