Inspirational :There is a Gospel that is yet to be preached.
For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel. (1 Corinthians 9:16).
I found myself crying in an unusual way in prayer, it sounded like a cry of a little child demanding the attention of their parent because they are in pain and need help urgently, it was not a cute approach as I have been taught or prayed, I literary cried out “Help me father” Do not pass our generation’s assignments’ to the next because we have failed to hear you in our generation.”. I have learned that before God uses one to preach a timely message, he first deals with that individual on that area and explains or brings awareness of the situation. In many cases, his burden gets laid upon that very individual so that when they speak, the message has a weight that human beings cannot dispute its authenticity and origin, but can only agree that it has come from God. And that the fire and the intensity that it is delivered by must only come from an inner compelling power like that one of Paul when he said “Woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel. In these trying times, it is easy to think all we need is revival on earth, but revival comes to a people who once knew the Lord and have lost the fire and the passion they once had.
If we are not moved by the Holy Spirit of God in this hour, we will end up preaching a message that soothes people’s ears but will not give them the deliverance they need. You can treat the symptoms of a certain disease, for a given period of time, and this time will be determined on how long your immune system will put up with you, just fighting the symptoms. The frequent reoccurrences of a certain issue in our bodies are normally an indication of a deeper and crucial underlying problem. But a time comes when the body shuts down and demands for a proper diagnosis, which will involve a lot of lab work and various tests. This has been the body of Christ for several years. Now that we have heard a gospel that has helped us get our finances together, our large beautiful houses, flashy cars and all that good for ourselves. Is it not time that we devote our lives to the right gospel of Jesus Christ? “Is it a time for you to be living in your paneled houses, while this house remains a ruin?” Haggai 1:4”.
In our own efforts we have tried to preach the Gospel by breaking it down into many versions and a variety of bible translations. We have studied the bible like Paul told Timothy in 2 Timothy 2:15 “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” We have interpreted and understood the Hebrew /Jewish and Greek meanings of the words in the bible and it has been good and served us well as a body and as individuals this far “BUT” now let us go back to the father, for fresh manner, for a word that proceeds out of the mouth of our Lord, for the “thou says the Lord” over this season and over the events of the world.
There is a Gospel that is yet to be preached and must be preached. There are great things that must come to pass, great things that are yet to be done in the kingdom of God, for the kingdom of God. There are things that are yet to be done in our own individual lives, in our children’s lives, in our homes, cities, states, Nations and then the end shall come. The gospel that has not been preached and must be preached is this, “Repent for the Kingdom of God is near” And for God so loved the world that he gave his only son. Who should repent? All should repent, backsliders, those who live lukewarm lives, and those who are in sin. We cannot preach a pure Gospel in our lukewarm or backslidden state. Sinners will only be compelled to come to Christ by a pure and uncompromising word that comes from an impartation from the Lord during our time spent with him. So who should repent all of us, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23. Why should we repent? Because sin leads to death, if we do not repent we will spend eternity in the lake of fire” There are people dying ending in this torturing place and they are crying saying, “I wish someone could have told me that this was the consequences of my sin. Some wish we could have preached the straight gospel on why Jesus came. We need to tell people including our loved ones that God loves them, and that he asks them to receive this love, and if they do receive this love, they will have eternal life in the life to come.
We need to warn people of the coming judgment. Mention to them what would happen if they do not receive the free gift of love and forgiveness from God and that they would spend eternity in this place that was only meant for the devil and the fallen angels. This place will also become a place for those who refuse to accept the gift of life. John 6:40 “For my father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life.” John 6:29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent. Luke 13:3b “But unless you repent, you too will all perish.” Matt 4:17. From that time when Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” Matthew 3:2 “You must change your hearts and minds, for the Kingdom of Heaven has arrived!” Mark 6:12, so they went out and preached that people should turn away from their sins. Acts 2:38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
Friend, does your heart burn with desire to see the pure gospel preached? Does it burn for uncompromised gospel that will set the prisoner free of sin? Then you share the Lord’s burden for this hour, you can begin by praying for laborers, for the harvest is ready, but there are no laborers, also enlist yourself to be a co-laborer with Christ Jesus is winning souls for the end time harvest. Ask the Lord to lead you daily to someone who needs to hear the good news of the Gospel. Make it your priority to make Christ known.
Till then, thank you for reading, and if this article ministers to you, please let me know.
