"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen" Matthew 28:19,20.
"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. " Mark
Father, we as your people would learn daily to walk in the spirit, not to any service but to yours, and for the grand purpose of fulfilling this great commission that the Resurrected Christ gave unto His disciples. Teach us oh Lord God, to have love, even the Love of God,for any and all that are in the earth, no matter what state or condition they are in, that we your people would love all in the world with the Love of our Heavenly Father. And also teach us Lord to minister this true and living gospel to all nations, for your word says in Romans
that the fullness of the Gentiles will come into your Kingdom. We believe your word Lord. We know and believe that you are the Christ, the one anointed saviour that did take away the sin of the world. Our faith Oh Lord is in you, and in your faith for us your people. Give us enlarged and strengthened faith to see these scriptures fulfilled in our day, to see the will of God and the Heart of God accomplished in all the earth and in thy people
. Lord! We humble ourselves, we abase ourselves in the dust of the earth Oh Lord. How mighty a God you are!! How marvellous are all your works and the benefits of your grace for all men and women, for each nation and family, Lord how unsearchable your judgements and your ways past finding out! And also Lord, that you would choose such a small number, a meagre handful of souls through which you will manifest the fulfilment of that will! We humble ourselves Lord for you have called and chosen us, not that we personally would benefit, but that as vessels of your choosing we would be poured out on behalf of Father, to manifestly display thy great Love for all to see. Prepare us Oh Lord, to melt together into this one perfected army of saints, that we too with Christ may say, "I've come to do your will". That you would choose us all Lord when we are so unworthy and so far removed from Holiness! Lord, it is by the workings of your great grace that you'will perfect your chosen people for the fullfillment of the task at hand. Praise and Bless Your Holy Name Oh Lord God!! Great grace and joy are to us, that you have chosen us each in the furnace of affliction to bear your testimony, and to speak the name of Christ without guile upon our lips. Thankyou Oh Lord our God.
Amen and Amen.
Fellow runners in the race. These scriptures are full of meaning for us as the people of God. It is a mandate from the lips of our Glorified Saviour that we are to proclaim this gospel in all the world for a witness, then shall the end come. We know the truth of God's holy word, and that death
will be no more. How we long for the day of the fulfilment of these scriptures, so that all that is in us may rejoice in the completed work of salvation for every man. Yet today I would point out that the completion of these verses is not done by an effort of religous works on our part, that is the way of religious man. No, it is accomplished solely by the spirit of God in us, and by the desire we carry to reach out with this word of grace to any who will hear us. Look carefully at these words and you will notice a difference in the tone of our Saviour, as the breath of the Sovereign King of Kings declares that these verses shall indeed be fulfilled in their season. Because He said it, it will indeed happen. Because He commanded it, it shall indeed come to pass.
These verses are not accomplished by efforts that lead to happenstance hit and miss reapings of the whitened harvest fields. They are brought about entirely and in their due time by the command that Christ commanded. Because He said it, it will happen. Because it was spoken, it shall be fulfilled. As much as modern Christianity attempts to reach the lost at any cost, so much more easily shall it be done by the motion of the spirit of God when God performs it in His time. Not by efforts of religiousness, but by a simple turning of the Hand of the Lord. For the Lord will soon turn the course of events, and mankind shall enter into that age that is dawning, the age of the
on the earth. My heart thrills at this word, for it is the sovereign promise that it will indeed happen, that all mankind will find peace and quiet at last in the Love of Him who laid down His life for all. Let us keep these verses as a hope, steadfast and sure, knowing by the scriptures the end from the beginning. All came from God and all returns to God again. "For of him, and through him ,and to him are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen" Romans 11:36
May God hasten it in His time. Rest in this completed vision, for it is a rest to all our souls. Amen.
