Gaspar Hickes, (d. 1677) was a diligent, faithful Presbyterian minister of the Gospel and a member of the Westminster Assembly of Divines.
This work is a collection of Gasper Hickes’ surviving sermons, which are nothing less than biblical, Reformed, and fiery. His first sermon is on Isaiah 28:5-6, “In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of glory…for his people….” It is a powerful sermon demonstrating the presence and the favor of God as the glorious ornament of a godly person.
The second sermon is on the advantage of having afflictions ordained and given to us by God for the Christian’s good, and Christ’s glory. It is based on Hosea 5:15, “In their affliction they will seek me early.” God’s people seek him early and earnestly in affliction.
The last sermon is on Acts 13:36, “For David after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption.” It is the integrity, the honor, the happiness of the godly, by the gracious disposing and working of God, to be made truly serviceable to those with whom they have communion. It is exceedingly comfortable to the godly man, that he is the most useful serviceable creature that lives on earth.
