TO THE

READER,

ESPECIALLY

Those of that CHURCH, to which tliis Author

was sometime PASTOR.

E

Verr Church is by the Ordinance of Christ a Pillar of saving Truth, holding it forth to be seen and read of all Men; the Teachings and Ordinances adminis fired in Churches being among the chief of the lays,

whereby the bleffed God instructs and enlightens a dark World in the way of Eternal Life. These following Discoursis are part, and but part of those many precious Truths and Teachings held forth by this Servant of Christ, in the course of about fifteen Years Ministry, in that Candlestick in which the Lord made him a slvining Light. The Prophets do not live for ever ; but their lords and Fruit should, yea will live and remain after they are gone to their everlasting Reft.

Not long after this Author had gone thro' this Subject, God took him to Heaven, (when he wanted above fix Months of being fix and forty Years old) by an Imposthume in his Liver ; which is Some who were conversant with him judged, hung upon him when he st18died and preached these Sermons; and which perhaps was the Redfon, that frori the beginning to the finishing of theme so long a Space ran out. Having no more time to review themi, and make

any

Ad. ditions unto the Notes that he prepared for Preaching, they are less perfe& then otherwise they would; and it is not unlike, but the many things studied by him before-hand, and delivered in Presching, especially in the Applicatory part (wherein he had an Excellency) are loft, because not written down by himself. Had he lived to have

A

reviepie?
