13: The Everlasting Gospel – Thought Starters — 2 Comments

  1. The Everlasting Gospel is the Promised Deliverance of God right throughout all ages; "And I will put enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.” (Genesis 3:5).

    The Gospel is, "the Power of God that brings Salvation," (Romans 1: 16); through which, our God "rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins." (Colossians 1: 13,14).

    The Everlasting Gospel commissioned by Jesus in Mathew 28: is this; "For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life! God destroyed every spiritual powers that stood against us through Christ; "having cancelled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; He has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross." (Colossians 2:14,15).

    God freed us from all condemnations through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ at the cross. God is again appealing to all, His Eternal Life, if we let Him into our lives to circumcise and destroy the body of sin on us; "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me." (Revelation 3:20).

    God is appealing to all mankind His Righteous Works of Salvation pleading urgently; "You also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory." (Ephesians 1:13,14).

    Will you hear the voice of God?

  2. Everlasting means it is not time bound, it can never become obsolete and very relevant even for this generation. It is therefore very pertinent that we sound it loud and clear. Isaiah 60:1-3 asks us to 'arise and shine' The reason there is gathering thick darkness over the world daily is because Christians have turned away from the everlasting gospel to fables and teachings of men. Many still live in their sin presuming they are saved.
