The Assignment Has Not Changed!

Our Pastor taught the Adult Sunday School class and he preached to us the Word of God during morning worship. The topic was “The Assignment Has Not Changed!”. He preached on Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”

Pastor advised us that it is our assignment to GO and preach the Gospel. He then broke down what the Gospel is. The Gospel has been the same since biblical days. Gospel means “good news” and the Gospel that was preached since the inception of the New Testament Church was the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. No other Gospel has been preached except this powerful truth. We find that by preaching the Gospel, we preach on the Death by explaining how one needs to repent of the sins and die to their flesh. It is only by repenting that we can experience the burial of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are buried with Him through baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission (or forgiveness) of our sins. Then we are to teach on the resurrection of Christ. That is rising out of the watery graves of Baptism with the sure promise that you can have the same power on the inside of you that the resurrected Christ has. This power can only come by receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues. THATS THE GOSPEL!!!!!!!!!

Your Bible says in Galatians 1:8 “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” I didn’t make that up. Thats what the WORD says. Saints, if you hear ANY (and I mean ANY) other Gospel being preached that is not found in the Word (specifically the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus and the power that we can receive through His precious shed blood) you are to ignore it. Its FALSE . No where in scripture did it say the Gospel was getting rich, playing and dancing to the latest shout music, having cars and houses and land. Thats NOT the gospel. The gospel is plain and simple. The death of Jesus Christ (in return we are to repent from sin and die to the flesh), burial of Jesus Christ (we are to be buried with Jesus by being baptised in Jesus Name for the remission of our sins) and Resurrection of Jesus Christ (we are to receive the power of the resurrected Christ indwelling on the inside of us with the evidence of speaking in tongues).  After we receive the Gospel for ourselves, we allllll are to go and witness to convert many souls to the Gospel of Truth as commanded in Matthew 28:19 knowing that the titles Father, Son, and Holy Ghost all have One name and that name is Jesus Christ

Be blessed this week, I’m going to eat and get ready to go back to prayer and Sunday night evangelistic services (yes we still have Sunday night church EVERY Sunday night and the house is packed).

Spread the word, the assignment has not changed!

  1. It’s all so elementary! The Apostles and disciples of Jesus (including His mother, Mary) were in Jerusalem praying for the enduement of power of which He had promised (see Acts 1:5&6). Then, as a rushing mighty wind and cloven tongues like as of fire, the Holy Ghost filled the room where they were sitting and praying and filled them to overflowing. They began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance (see Acts 2:1-4). At that time, there were many devout Jews from all over the then-known world assembled at Jerusalem for the observance of the Passover Feast. When the Apostles and disciples of Jesus were gloriously filled, they could not help but spill out into the streets of Jerusalem praising, shouting, singing, and worshiping the Lord in other tongues! The Jews assembled there recognized some of their own languages being spoken by the believers of Jesus Christ. They knew these people. They knew the believers to be “common, everyday ordinary” people that had never learned these languages. They were indeed pricked in their hearts. They asked of the Apostles and disciples, “What should we do?” “How can we, too, receive this ‘speaking in tongues’ experience?”

    The great Apostle Peter stood up and gave the very first salvation message of the brand-new Christian church. That message has NEVER changed, and is still the same today as it always has been. He answered the assembled crowd: “Repent, and be baptized, every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto YOU (see Acts 2:38&39)!”

    Before He ascended, our Lord Jesus Christ told the Apostles and disciples that, “repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name, beginning at Jerusalem (Luke 24:47).”

    We find, by following the flame of truth weaving His way through the Book of the Acts of the Apostles this is exactly what happened. The “original” Holy Ghost outpouring and establishment of the church was at Jerusalem (Acts 2). The glory of evangelism then extends to Samaria (Acts 8), the house of Corneilus (Acts 10), then on to Epehsus (Acts 19). In just about 100 years, those “first” Apostolics had evangelized the then known world.

    Can we do no less?

    “Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit saith the Lord of Hosts (Zechariah 4:6.”
