God's Just Desertion of the Unjust, and Other Works

150 pages2 hours


Hannibal Gammon (1585-1674) was a puritan minister and an active member of the Westminster Assembly. He was one of the most powerful puritan preachers of his day.

This volume contains Gammon's only surviving works. His first sermon is, "God’s Just Desertion of the Unjust," (from Revelation 22:11), showing that it is a comfort to the godly to be mercifully confirmed in holiness, and it is a terror to the wicked to be justly suffered to go on in his wickedness. His second is, "The Praise of a Godly Woman," (from Proverbs 31:30) showing that "praise" is a debt that must be paid to those who have the true, "fear of the Lord." His third is, "God’s Smiting to Amendment or to Revengement," (from Isaiah 1:5), where he shows what reasons God uses for professing believers when he strikes them justly for their sin.
