Summary

Matthew Mead (1630-1699) was an independent puritan divine, and popular reformed preacher.

Without the bad news of sin, death and hell, there can be no good news of Christ, salvation and eternal life. Mead’s work is masterful building from 1 Kings 8:37-39 of the dreadful reality of God’s judgment against sin, which leads to death, which in turn leads most people to hell. Mead was present in the great plague of London in 1665 which killed 100,000 people. Mead saw the plague as a direct example of God’s wrath against the city for its sin and wickedness.

Mead’s work is not simply a discovery of sin, but a remedy for it. He demonstrates twelve sins that London was continually committing, many of which are the same sins we commit today. Mead shows what those sins are, and how to remedy them through the power of Christ’s converting Spirit of repentance.
