Missions


PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE:
Just before He ascended into Heaven the Lord Jesus gave His disciples a reminder of His "Great Commission" to take the Gospel to the whole world! (Acts 1:8; see also: Matthew 28:18-20) Then an angel told the disciples that Jesus would return the same way He left the earth (Acts 1:9-11). Christians are not supposed to abandon this missions mandate and retire to a mountaintop to wait for His return. Instead, they should "occupy," or "do business" until He returns (Luke 19:13 - in a parable about faithful stewardship).

We are living at the end of the greatest period of missionary activity in history. This was foretold in the message to the Church at Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13). During this time missionaries have followed Jesus' own example of meeting people's needs in order to earn the right to be heard. They have improved the living conditions of people around the world, fed the hungry, built hospitals, and established schools. Then they have given the Gospel, the best of all gifts.

Unfortunately, the spirit of the apostate Church of Laodicea (Revelation 3:14-22) is rapidly growing stronger, threatening to merely provide assistance without faithfully giving the life-changing Gospel message that Jesus is God's only provision for salvation (John 14:6; Acts 4:12).

Ultimately, there will be representatives in Heaven of "every tribe and tongue and people and nation" (Revelation 5:9). The Bible says, "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). So far, the missionary enterprise has only been the privilege of human disciples of the Lord, but at a certain time during the Tribulation period God will allow angels to finish the work (Revelation 14:6-7).
