|Matthew 24:14 “And this gospel of the Kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come”
Time is coming to an end. We are about to step out of time and into eternity. Before we do, this gospel of “the Kingdom” will be declared. We have carried this burden with a focus on salvation. Saving souls is only one dimension of this full and glorious gospel. The nations have yet to see and hear this gospel that will fill the earth with the knowledge of Him. King Jesus is coming and the world is going to hear Him roar.
The gravity of His finished work on the cross will pull down the kingdoms of this world. This cross stands at the threshold between time and eternity and nothing of the natural order will pass through into eternity. On that day every man’s work will be tried by fire. The things we did for the Lord will be consumed. The things we did in union with Him will remain. On “that day” the measure of our walk will be revealed in the light of His presence.
Romans 8:14: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
It’s not what we do for the Lord that matters but why we do what we do. Our walk with God is not static but spontaneous. Our pattern, the Lord Jesus was at the wedding feast when His mother revealed a need in the natural to which He responded “what’s this got to do with me? It’s not my time yet”. Just moments later it was God’s time. Thirty years of remaining hidden in perfect obedience was about to change. The natural was touched by the supernatural and new wine flowed. Before every eye sees Him, He will be seen in a Bride who has been prepared in secret and become one with Him in name and nature.
This Gospel will yet be declared through the life of the Son revealed by the Holy Spirit in a many membered body. A people governed by the anointing and under the control of the Spirit. A people that don’t react to outward circumstance but to an inward revelation of eternity’s purpose. A people that will move in harmony with the Head to proclaim a “Gospel of greater works” to all nations.
John 14:12-13: “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son”
