“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” (Matthew 24:14).
It seems that every time we face a world crisis, whether a major conflict between nations, the race in military and nuclear weapons, or a worldwide pandemic like COVID-19, those who like to predict “the end of the world” or “the Lord’s return” are out in full force with their theories.
Frankly, these are distractions! Jesus said many things about the sign of His return (Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21). Some of them were “near” prophecies; that is, they were going to take place by 70 AD and others were much farther in the future. In all three Synoptic Gospels, Jesus makes it clear “concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only” (24:36). Since this is His word to us, what should we be doing?
Ralph Winter, General Director of the Frontier Mission Fellowship, says that “a close look at the end of this verse (Matthew 24:14) says a lot about what we should watch for and work toward in this age. Jesus says that before the end comes, there will be “a witness to all the nations (ethne – people group).” The goal of this ministry is to sharpen your vision on being an effective “witness.”
If you have questions regarding how you can be more of an effective “witness,” please send us an email with you questions at email@example.com. We want you doing HIS WORK!
