The Word of God to All People

 Whether it be by land, by sea or by air. The many feet of many colors,
shall bring the Gospel of peace and the good news of Christ to all!

Beloved, the year was 2012, and once again I found myself having my own place to live in although this time is was adjoined to a house. Nevertheless, I rejoiced in having this wonderful place to rest my head and body and seek the Lord out and rejoice in Him after having been delivered out of the most frightful of times in my life till present day—The voice of God became silent to me, intimacy with Him ceased and I literally felt like I was dying. Till this day I have no idea why I experienced such a time that extended from the end of 2011 till the beginning of 2012. it was the worst time in my life. Even when Satan and his demons came against me in 2010 and my spine was almost broken, could not compare to the misery, the fright, the loneliness and the despair I felt and experienced when I could no longer hear from my Lord and my God. It was hell for me. Yet, let us enter into a time of rejoicing now, as the Lord, who alone saves a man and his soul, spoke to me at that opportune time when I cried out to Him and behold, His voice I could now hear and it was once again the happiest of times. Halleluyah! With that said, I now invite you Into My HEART...

A sigh of relief! My Lord and I were once again close to one another. I was in Him and He in I. Yet, if I could boldly and confidently say anything concerning that frightful time it would be this: He the Lord, Jesus is His name, allowed me for a time to not know Him for the sake of others being saved through His Word, by my testimony and witness of Him. Halleluyah! For He alone is the peace and prosperity of a man, and He alone, is Salvation and the salvation of all men! One could say that very thing we should not say, But why would He do that? Yet, what did He do actually, if not bring me into a greater intimacy with Him?! Did I perish? No. Did I become separated from Him? No, as the Word of God declares triumphantly that in Christ, nothing at all could ever [separate] us from the love of God. Therefore, I was not separated from Him nor He from I and certainly His love was not taken away from me, but in all things, purpose and order, harmony and grace, mercy and compassion, wisdom and honor, understanding and revelation, is an agenda that is too great for us to understand. Yet, He alone, is worthy of these things and the Author of these things. Therefore, I know and I am confident that in all things whether made known or to remain a mystery, as long as I am in Christ, I will always and forever rejoice! Amen.

Now let us receive that wonderful Word and in receiving Him, let us be confident we have Him forever. Jesus is the Word of God and as the Word of God He must enter into every crevice where a man may be so that all manner of men, whether large or small in stature; that is, in influence or height (success or failure), riches or poverty, sinfulness or ignorance, infirmity or might, tongue, nation and tribe and their seed and their families and acquaintances should hear His message and choose for themselves in whom they will serve (Joshua 24:14-15). And through such visitation all the hearts and minds of men and that which has come from them, that is, women and children, will be prepared rightfully for the end, and according to the Word, the end shall come (Matthew 24:3-14 emphasis added). 

Beloved, in all things, God through His Son Jesus has been effectively at work with all diligence and patience to bring about the salvation of men, and we can be confident of this, we too, who look to Him and confess Him as Lord, will know the very riches of being a part of this fine work. Amen.

He the Lord, makes this declaration to me in that very place where I once again heard His voice: By your life and the legacy you will leave behind, 50 million will come to Christ.

Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with Him (Luke 8:1 NKJV).

And He said to them, “Go into all the world [by every way a person may be reached] and preach the gospel to every creature [that which is apart from Me yet I have in my lovingkindess breathed life into and made them in My image]. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;  they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen. (Mark 16:15-20 emphasis added)

Beloved one, this ‘Go into all the world’ is quite the miraculous thing and I pray, we will by His grace, receive the wisdom and revelation to comprehend the height of this knowledge, for the Word of God going into all the world, is just that! Whether it be on foot, on wheels, on horse or camel-back. Whether it be by train, plane or boat. Whether it be through letter or email or the world wide web. Whether it reveals itself on a jumble-tron or by that courageous man on the corner of the street that is looked upon as crazy. In all ways, into every crevice, across the oceans and all the seas. Whether to a city, a town, a state, a province, an island to be communicated to a small tribe of unknowns, to the ends of the earth and into all the world, Jesus will be preached and testified of and by such testimony and by such witnessing and by such men divinely inspired by God and accompanied by Jesus Himself, the Word of God will be heard, will be received and no one will be with an excuse when they stand before their Creator and Judge. Yes, in all ways Gods Word will be heard. Halleluyah and amen.

After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go (Luke 10:1 NKJV) and this appointing and this sending is quite the wonderful thing, for such men of privilege could glean confidence from their Gospel companions and more so, in the One whom is the Gospel, was with them in all things: 

into every city and place, whither he himself would come: which he intended to visit: he sent them beforehand to acquaint the inhabitants of it; and prepare them by their ministry, for the reception of him; as John the Baptist, who was in a more eminent sense the harbinger and forerunner of Christ, went before him in his ministry, and prepared the way for him. 

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14 NKJV)

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. (Hebrews 4:12-13 NKJV emphasis added) 

The Word knows exactly how to approach all men: “Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:14-16 NKJV emphasis added) 

Beloved one, whether it be a man who writes or speaks or sings or enacts the Word of God, let it be the Word of God Himself, Jesus is His name, who is with them doing that work in them and through them and all around them, so that those who are appointed and those who are sent, will by every might and power and authority that Jesus is, reveal His love, His grace, His mercy and compassion along with His patience and virtue of hope and godliness through His peace, so that those who hear, will attain faith and in faith, declare He to be Lord and by virtue of such a declaration shall know the wonderment of His love, the excellence of His intimacy, and the infinite connection of having a personal relationship with the Creator God of heaven and earth. And I pray, they too, to whatever measure and degree, be appointed and sent by His Word alone to take part in spreading the Gospel message of Jesus Christ and Him crucified, so that they too, shall take part in this heritage in which I by His grace and mighty Spirit know, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!”

As always...YOU ARE LOVED.
