Product Information

This is Volume VII of Goodwin’s Works

Treatise 1: Of the Creatures, and the Condition of Their State by Creation.
1. The creation is not God, and God is not the creation. God is eternal, has always been eternal. The creatures are not eternal, did not exist in eternity, but in time only. God is a totally different being from His creatures. Pantheists and other cults condemned.
2. What was the law of creation on God’s part. First, there was a covenant of works; then there was a covenant of grace.
3. Of the first Adam, the antitype of the second Adam, Christ.

Treatise 2: Of Gospel Holiness in the Heart and Life, and Continued in the Whole Conversation of Life,. That the graces and holy dispositions wrought in the soul are the springs and principles of evangelical obedience.
1. The first streams which flow are toward actions of our souls to holy thoughts, and a lively sense and perception of spiritual things, and a due appreciation and judgment of them as most excellent.
2. That our obedience ought to abound in all fruits of righteousness, and to continue until the day of Christ.

Treatise 3: Of the Blessed State of Glory Which the Saints Possess After Death. ''Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now, that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.''
(Rev. 14:13). The occasion of these was the danger of saints suffering.
1. That the soul of believers does not sleep, or is not in a state of inactivity, until the resurrection.
2.  That the souls of believers immediately after their separation from the body live a happy life in the enjoyment of God.

Treatise 4: Three Several Ages of Christians in Faith and Obedience
In 1 John 2:13, 14 the apostle John divides saints into three ages:
1. Fathers in Christ, not in age, but in growth in Christ
2. Men grown up, which is translated young men who are growing.
3. Babes, or new converts not yet grown up, but true believers all.

All three classes are regenerated saints. All three love Christ, and are loved. Aged men may be babes in Christ (1 Cor. 3:1; Heb. 5:12-14).

Treatise 5: Man’s Restoration by Grace, the three parts which the three Persons of the Godhead bear in accomplishing our salvation.

Treatise 6: On Repentance ''search our ways, and turn to the Lord.''

Goodwin (1600-1679) was influential in many ways, a member of the Westminster Assembly, President of Magdalene College, drafter of the Savoy Confession of Faith, and pastor at the most influential Independent church in London.  588 pages, blue hard cover
