There are varying opinions about the continuance of God’s Word always being proclaimed on the earth. Some believe it will be in large cathedrals. Others believe that it must be communicated in person to be successfully planted, others think it will be done through the digital domain, etc. I accept all these methods, knowing some will be more successful than others, but I am persuaded any and all means must be employed for the furtherance of God’s Word. I can prove that, so please continue reading.
Some think that personality is crucial to communicating God’s good and eternal Word. Some preachers use silly humor and others believe props and human inventions must be incorporated. As a minister in this year of our Lord, 2021, I have been privileged to preach in a free land by the traditional and accepted manner of standing on a platform behind a pulpit, endeavoring to minister the truth of the Bible. Only God knows if that method will always be free and available. Whatever comes, His Divine Gospel will always be faithfully and effectively preached.
In a changing world, with changing values involving every facet of life, one of the most serious and damning changes has been toward the Gospel of Christ and everything concerning Christianity. In America and around the world, the institution of Christ-centered preaching and teaching the truth of Christian life are subtlety and openly being subverted. There is open hatred for the things and ways of God. Indeed throughout human history, Satan has hated and done innumerable measures to stop it. Countless saints and believers have paid, even the supreme price of death, to let the lost and dying know that Jesus died for them, that He loved them, and if they believed in Him, they would be delivered from sin and reign with Him forever. The number who have heard and believed is without number.
Despite evil rulers and God-hating governments that have tried to stamp out the voice of God, it continues now and forever to be sounded. Every devilish effort to prevent the Gospel truth from being declared has failed, and everyone that tries to stop it now and those that will come after us to stop it will also fail. And if they use their anti-God government powers, influence, prestige, and money to subvert the preaching of the infallible Word of God, we know there is a way of God that cannot be killed or stopped by martyrdom, imprisonments, torture, or any other means. When Satan has exhausted every means to prevent God from reaching a lost world with the Gospel, Revelation 14:6 declares, “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.”
Yes, countless multitudes will hear and believe. They will repent of their sin and become children of the Most High God. Revelation 7:9 says, “After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands.” God’s program can never be stopped.
