Aren’t you stumped by the casual attitude of people towards the single most important issue in life – the question of their eternal destiny, and that of their loved ones?
They live as if life on earth is all there is to their existence.
What is at stake in the ongoing battle between God’s army and the army of the devil?
The Battle for Souls
The stake is the billions of souls on the road to one of two eternities.
How many of our world’s population of 7.7 billion would make it to heaven, and how many would end up in the Lake of Fire?
Closer to home, it is the battle for your soul, and the souls of your loved ones.
That is the stake. It is high. Immeasurably high.
Have you begun to grasp the gravity of dying without Jesus as Saviour?
Are your loved ones and your neighbours aware of the horrific reality that awaits them after death?
What could possibly be more pressing and important than the salvation of the perishing through the proclamation of the Gospel of Christ?
One principle of evangelism
Are you as passionate about saving the perishing from the eternal Lake of Fire as you are saving them from a hell on Earth? Are you as concerned about their eternal well-being, as you are about their earthly?
Only through faith in Jesus can the lost experience both abundant life on Earth and eternal life in heaven.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10
Proclaim the Gospel
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. John 6:37
Just proclaim the Gospel and leave the saving to God.
What is humanism?
Christians turned humanists
Is the Church the centre for evangelism or a humanitarian organisation?
Has saving souls from a hell on Earth taken pre-eminence over saving them from eternal torment in the Lake of Fire?
Is the Church preoccupied with evangelism or humanitarian projects?
Have funds and resources once designated for evangelism and missions been rechannelled to social concern ministries?
Does the social gospel compliment the Gospel of Salvation or has it replaced the Gospel?
Is the humanitarian aid offered by the Church any different from those offered by humanitarian organisations?
Are we so carried away with meeting the earthly needs of the lost that we have missed the reason why God sacrificed His only Son?
Are we so preoccupied with the social gospel that we have neglected Jesus’ call to the Great Commission?
Do we proclaim the Gospel of Salvation with the same urgency, zeal and vigour as we the social gospel?
What started off as evangelism through social works has evolved into full-fledged social concern ministries, which has replaced evangelism as the primary mission of many a churches, but to just alleviate the sufferings of the needy is to do them gross injustice.
The new social religion
Millions are slipping into an eternity in the Lake of Fire, and millions more would follow as the Covid-19 crisis and its fallout wipe out large swathes of the human population.
Judgement has come for a world that rejects God, a Godless world. God judges the nations by simply lifting His hand to allow the devil to have his way with man.
Even as the devil and his minions of human agents unleash hell on Earth, a far worse fate awaits the unsaved.
Our activities should reflect the times we are in. What is our highest responsibility in the face of an ending world?
This may be the last chance for the perishing to hear the Gospel before their eternal fate is sealed. This is our last shot at proclaiming the Gospel before the world ends, our last opportunity to be a part of the end-time heralding of souls into God’s kingdom. Let us double up our efforts to actively proclaim the Gospel.
May the fate of the perishing trouble our conscience, occupy our waking hours and give us sleepless nights.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:19-20
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. Matthew 24:14
