Zealous for Souls

by Dr David Jeremiah

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

Recommended Reading Proverbs 11:30

The Great Commission tells us to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. But the fulfilling of the Great Commission is not necessarily a sign of Christ's imminent return. When we compare the prophetic events of Matthew 24 with the Book of Revelation, we learn that after the rapture of the Church, the task of world evangelism will continue under the ministry of the 144,000 Messianic Jewish preachers, leading to the salvation of multitudes of people during the Great Tribulation.

Just imagine! Only twelve Jews (the disciples) turned the world upside down after the resurrection and ascension of Christ in the first century. Think of what 144,000 Jewish evangelists can do after the return of Christ to rapture the church!

But until then, we can do our part. We're to be proclaimers of the Word and preachers to the world. If we're followers of Christ, we're to be fishers of men. Think of the value of one soul into whose heart you were able to drop the seed of the Gospel. Be zealous for souls in all you do!

The example of the grace of God in our lives allows others to see Christ in us, and they can be saved from the wrath to come. David Jeremiah
