What does it mean, to Preach the Gospel?
There are multitudes of Preachers and Teachers, who are Proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom. “Christ in you, the hope of Glory,” even today.
Yet, it is still a mystery to some.
“Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.”
We warn and teach, in our wisdom, all who will listen, so all men could be perfect in Christ. (In our Wisdom, is the problem).
Our goal, should be to manifest God’s Wisdom. Has it been manifested to you?
I don’t know that it has, looking at our Powerless Ministries.
Is Christ really within? Do we manifest, (proclaim, show forth), His Love, Grace and Power?
I believe, most of us, fail this test. Our Words, may be correct, our prayers beautiful…
Our results, less than promised.
Why is this?
Jesus, sent John’s Disciples back to him, to proclaim what they had seen. The blind, seeing, the lame, walking, the lepers, cleansed, the deaf, hearing, the dead raised. (Matthew 11:4-6)
The only thing visiters to our Services see, is the Gospel proclaimed to the poor, (those without). We lack Power in our Words, and Actions.
As the believers went forth, Preaching the Kingdom, the Lord was with them, confirming His Word, with signs following. (Mark 16:20)
When I look behind, I see nothing, no signs, worders or miracles, no followers either, (lol), for that matter.
“Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.,
The Word we have heard has not profited us as it should have, we do not rest in the Lord. The Hebrews did not enter into the Promise, because of an evil heart of unbelief.
Paul spoke of striving to Fully Preach the Gospel of Christ. This included signs and wonders, by the Power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 5:19)
Saints, I covet your effectual fervant prayers today, we just received bad news. Will elaborate at a latter time.
We need His Mercy, Grace and Power today.
‘You can have the relationship you want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.’
Thanks for visiting, come back soon.
Know, you are loved.
