“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”” (Revelation 7:9–10).
As much as I try, I cannot imagine this scene. It was planned in eternity past. It was worked out from the moment of creation. It was made possible at the cross of Jesus Christ; His death, burial, resurrection and ascension. It was sealed by the coming of the Holy Spirit and His dwelling in those who believe in the Son. This “great multitude that no one could number” will be the eternal proof that the gospel WILL reach “every nation…all tribes and peoples and languages”!
Since this is God’s plan and it will come to pass, why are there still 1,568 unengaged people groups with NO Christians, NO witness or testimony to the gospel? WHY? What is the problem with our methods of evangelism? John Piper challenges us with this statement; “There is not one unengaged people group who have not been reached because of the lack of money. It is because we have plenty of money that they are not reached.” In other words, we are so wrapped up in the money we have, using it the way we want, and it is not helping reach those that need the gospel most. ONLY ONE PERCENT (1%) of all missionary giving actually goes to reaching the unengaged around the world. WHAT A SHAME! Will you pray with us that God awakens the Church to this great need and help us change our priorities?
