As fear and uncertainty spreads, this can be our finest hour. I truly believe that God has appointed this moment in time for us to shine the Light of the World around the globe.
Before He ascended into heaven, our Lord Jesus Christ gave us specific instructions on what to do, especially during the last days. He said:
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen. (Matthew 28:19-20)
Jesus also said, “This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14). And Jesus commands us, “Occupy till I come” (Luke 19:13, kjv).
As the signs of the time intensify, we must strengthen our efforts to reach the world of with the message of God’s saving grace through our Lord Jesus Christ.
We must continue proclaiming the Gospel! That’s why we weren’t whisked up to heaven the moment we accepted Christ as Savior and Lord. We are still here for a profound reason:
God also says: “When the time’s ripe, I answer you.
When victory’s due, I help you.
I form you and use you to reconnect the people with me,
To put the land in order, to resettle families on the ruined properties.
I tell prisoners, ‘Come on out. You’re free!’ and those huddled in fear, ‘It’s all right. It’s safe now.’” (Isaiah 49:8-9, msg)
The ultimate victory will come when the Lord returns. In the meantime, those who proclaim the Gospel bring the message of deliverance, healing, and salvation to people wherever we go, regardless of the circumstances.
This is what the Gospel does! The Gospel is the power of God. When you understand the power of the Gospel, you knew that through the preaching of His Word comes the power to deliver, the power to heal, the power to rescue, and the power to take people out of the hands of Satan himself.
This is what the world desperately needs today, more than ever before!
