Mat 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Many are the events which have taken place pointing to the coming of Christ. Only in retrospect do we see how they were pieces of the puzzle which make up the complete picture of modern fulfilled Biblical prophecy. And though an earthquake in Indiana, a famine in Somalia or a civil war in Sudan all bear witness to end time prophecy, there is one sure prophecy that we know of that will herald the coming of the Lord, the prophecy of Matthew 24:14.
There is no way you, or even your church can foment a natural disaster like one prophesied in this chapter. You probably will not have anything to do with the false messiahs or the wars. But you can have a vital part of preaching the gospel to the ends of the earth.
This effort is called MISSIONS! It is witnessing to your neighbor, being part of planting and building a church, praying for and supporting missionaries. You may even go to the field yourself, get a greater burden and returning to push missions in your church in an unprecedented fashion.
Think about it, our efforts to spread the gospel will eventually bring about the return of the Lord Jesus! What are you doing for missions?
