“This gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in the whole world, for a witness to all the peoples, and then the end will come” (Mt 24:14). As the Lord Jesus returns to take up His church into heaven, there will be “a great multitude, which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the Throne, clothed in white robes” (Rev 7:9).
Many in America Haven’t Heard
Or they have heard a weak, watered-down “gospel” which is really no gospel at all. There are tens of millions of Americans who think they are Christians, but they are not true disciples. When “Priscilla and Aquila heard Apollos speak, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately” (Act 18:26). We must do the same whenever the Spirit gives us the opportunity.
The Issue is Lordship Salvation
According to the word of God, we must teach people that “if you confess Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved” (Rom 10:9). Jesus said, “Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple” (Lk 14:27). Only true disciples are saved! We preach, without compromise, “the gospel of the Kingdom” (Mt 4:23, 9:35).
His Glory Will Appear Upon You
Although “darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples, the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you” (Is 60:2).
“It shall be in the last days,” God says, “that I will pour forth of My Spirit upon all mankind. Your sons and daughters will prophesy… and all who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved” (Acts 2:17, 21).
These verses assure true disciples that in the last days there will be a great final harvest. Even though much of the earth will be under “deep darkness,” there will be a world-wide awakening and multitudes will be saved.
In the Rising Movement, our attitude is, we know it is coming. Let’s not miss it!
