Blue Letter Bible is excited to present a digital edition of The Glorious Feast of the Gospel, a series of sermons on Isaiah 25:6-9, by Richard Sibbes. Originally published in 1650, this collection reads comfortably for both devotional and study purposes. The writer petitions all believers, in their need of encouragement, to a renewed communion with God. Sibbes herein awakens the senses of the reader to the rich truths and promises presented in Jesus Christ.
Excerpted from the final sermon, he writes: “We see in nature in the winter, which is a dull time to the spring and harvest…there is a great promotion of harvest in winter, it is not a mere distance of time. So, between the promise and heaven itself, it is not a mere waiting time and there is an end. But it is a time which is taken up by the Spirit of God in preparing the heart, in subduing all base lusts, and in taking us off from ourselves and whatsoever is contrary to heaven. The time is filled up with a great deal of that which fits us for glory in heaven.”
Written centuries ago but pertinent for today, this book will ignite a passionate love for Christ our gracious Savior, who prepares us for and provides us with The Glorious Feast.
