The Doorpost: What can we do? Proclaim the Gospel!

By by Ray King  ·  Aug 22, 2023

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

What will be happening as the Gospel of the Kingdom is proclaimed to the whole world?

Jesus warned His disciples: “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for My Name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved” (Matthew 24:9-13).

The disciples experienced these things after Jesus ascended to heaven, and they have continued for His followers ever since. We may be tempted to withdraw or hide instead of obeying Him by faith. Yet 2 Peter 3:12 tells us our lives of holiness and godliness can actually have the effect of “hastening the coming of the day of God.”

Wherever you are, proclaim the Gospel. Our time is short.
