A young man trying to share the Bible with two young women.“GO INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL.” My friends where does your “INTO ALL THE WORLD” begin and end  “According to the first chapter of Acts, 120 believers met in the upper room on the day of Pentecost. This is a ratio of 1 Christian to approximately every 500,000 to 580,000 people in the empire at that time in History.

From a human standpoint, Jesus’ command TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE WORLD seemed unthinkable. The Christian church exploded in growth. Tens of thousands were converted. The message of Jesus’ love was carried to the remotest parts of the empire.

(This shows each of us who are committed to serving God, the power of God, when we as Christian’s take up the banner for Christ) Because in a few generations Christianity had invaded nearly every level of society even in the remote provinces. “(Mark Finley)

And this was actually done without the Social Media or Hashtag if you love Jesus. In addition, millions died so a world could receive the good news of Christ Salvation. Persecution of the Christians started with the Emperor Nero in the summer of AD 64.

At that time Christians were a small underground rag tag group among the slaves and poor people, making them the perfect scapegoat, Nero blamed the fire of Rome on them, and ordered all Christians to be persecuted. Persecution lasted for years but Christianity continued to grow so Satan devised a plan and a union was eventually formed between Christianity and paganism.

But thank God many Christians chose to die before they would deny their Lord. So the millions who endured through it images15all came to be called MARTYRS, which means “WITNESSES.” As God’s chosen witnesses “for such a time as this” what is our responsibilities in each of our own UNIQUE WORLDS Matt. 25:13 tells us “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.”

Where I need you to focus today my friends is what are our duties as we are watching and praying for Christ soon return. A story is told about the duke of Wellington who was once present where a party of Christian men were discussing the possibility of success in a missionary effort among the heathen.

They appealed to the duke to say whether in his judgment such efforts were likely to prove successful, proportionate to the cost, the old soldier replied: “Gentlemen, what are your marching orders, Success he said, is not the question for you to discuss. If I read your orders, they run thus, ‘GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD, and preach the gospel to every creature.’ Gentlemen, obey your marching orders.’

So as we are watching and waiting for our Saviors second coming our marching orders from God is GO! GO to your friends! GO to your family,!GO to your love one’s! GO to your neighbors! GO to your co-workers and GO to the world and tell them of the good news of Christ soon return and the conditions upon which they may return to His kingdom with Him when He returns.

But my friends the story does not end with victory through the god of this world. But it ends only through our faith and endurance and the grace and love of Christ who gave it all for our salvation, and he, or she whose heart is fixed to serve God and will always find the opportunity to be a witness for Him. in addition, the more we can focus on the character and love of Christ the more we come to realize that we must follow Him all the way to Calvary by being A humble servant to others as we carry out Christ mandate TO CARRY HIS GOSPEL INTO ALL THE WORLD.


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
