Message of the Gospel

The church is called to proclaim the Good News of the kingdom of God in every inhabited corner of the earth .  After his resurrection, Jesus declared that “ all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me;  therefore , go and make disciples of all nations .” During his ministry, the disciples were not to preach to the Gentiles, though he did so several times in anticipation of the opening of the gospel to the “ nations .” But initially, they were to proclaim it only to the “ lost sheep of Israel ” - [ Photo by Ben White on Unsplash ].

Why do the Nations Rage?

In the New Testament, the conspiracy of the kings of the earth to destroy the Son is applied to the plot to slay Jesus  –  Psalm 2:1-6 .  The second Psalm is a key messianic prophecy that is applied to Jesus consistently in the New Testament. But precisely when were the predictions from the Psalm fulfilled? Has the Messiah been installed on the Throne of David, or is this prediction still waiting for a future fulfillment? What about the “ rage ” of the nations against Yahweh’s “ anointed one ”? - [ Stormy Sea Photo by Barth Bailey on Unsplash ].
