The Gospel to ALL the World
[ Selected ]

Camp Meeting Sermon - June 15, 1913

NOTE FROM JERRY: Before you read the 1913 Camp Meeting Sermon, I want to share a selected paragraph regarding:
"...The Gospel...Into All The World, As A Witness..."

We live in fascinating times; an era of instant global communication that would have made the apostles and early disciples of Christ literally "tremble in anticipation" of the possibilities that lay before them. I've long been convicted in my heart that for us today to fail to avail ourselves of this technology borders on sin; it's at the very least poor stewardship of the resources with which our Lord has blessed us. Our Lord has commissioned us to go into all the world with the good news, and never before in the history of mankind has that been easier to do than today. One can literally reach into every corner of the globe from the comfort of his/her own home, and with just a few keystrokes on a personal computer one can share the glorious gospel of our Lord Jesus with, and provide guidance and encouragement to, people one would normally never have had the opportunity to meet. Not to make use of this technology to His glory would be, in my view, the height of irresponsibility. Brethren, I am going to be very blunt here: It's my conviction that when God places such a tool within our hands, and we fail to use it to further His cause, we will answer to Him one day for that failure! With the blessing of such technology comes the obligation and responsibility, and yes even the privilege, to use it. "For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more". [Luke 12:48].

Thanks! Now, the 1913 Campmeeting Sermon:

I call your attention to the 16th chapter of the Gospel by St. Mark, the 15th and 16th verses. "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned."

This was the last solemn charge that Christ gave to his ministry before he left the world. This sweeping commission applied to all of God's ministry and to the Church as a whole in all the ages of the world. Upon its being carried out hangs the eternal destiny of a lost world. It's my purpose to give you a brief idea of the sweep of this wonderful commission, and the great responsibility resting upon us in carrying it out. If you'll give me your close attention I'm sure you'll have a higher conception and a better comprehension of God's plan and work, and of the great reformation that's now sweeping over the earth in this evening time.

The spread of the gospel's not to be confined to one country or nation, but universal. This commission's universal. "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." Matthew words it like this: "Go teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, 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 always, even unto the end of the world." The law, in the old dispensation was applicable only to one nation. It was binding upon the Jews as a nation. The Gentile nations were without the law. They had no privilege of the law, unless they came as proselytes among the Jews. But the gospel of Christ is to all nations. It's intended to reach each nation under the sun because it's the only hope of salvation for a lost and ruined world. Hence, the importance of carrying its message to every nook and corner of the globe. It's pleased God through the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe, and without the preaching of the gospel no man will ever be saved. The gospel carries the tidings of salvation to lost men and women, and without it they're lost and ruined forever.

In presenting this subject, I'll consider the following thoughts: First. The basis of this great universal charge. Second. The history and progress of Christianity in fulfilling the commission. Third. The work yet to be accomplished. Fourth. The signs of the times, and the Lord's leading and preparation of its accomplishment.

Foundation Of The Commission...

This commission has underneath it a foundation that's deep and eternal. If we learn to understand the foundation upon which the commission was predicated, we'll get a better comprehension of the commission itself. There's first, a universal need. "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God"; and, since all have sinned, all are lost. The whole human family, all of Adam's race are lost. I know it's hard for some people to comprehend that fact, but it's true. Since it's a fact that all have sinned, all are lost. From the benighted heathen to the most enlightened of the world today, all have sinned; all are lost.

Says one, "Do you mean to say the children are lost?" They would be if it weren't for the atonement. There's one hope for them, and, thank God, they all have that hope. Thye're by nature the children of wrath, but though the merits of the atonement, being in a state of innocence, they're saved. Jesus tasted death for every man. Some people have an idea that children don't need the atonement. Jesus gave himself a ransom for every man. That's for all mankind, every son and daughter of Adam. Every child that dies in infancy is saved through the blood of Jesus Christ. I expect to join in with all the little children over in the glory world, and celebrate the praises of God, singing redemption's song. They'll have washed their little robes and made them white in the same blood we have.

The need is universal. I'll dwell in particular upon that part that applies to men and women after they come to the years of knowledge of good and evil. All the world's now on probation. Having transgressed the law of God, they're lost, and need to be saved. All men are under law to God, and they're conscious of it in their very being and nature. Something tells them there's a Maker, and his displeasure rests upon their souls because of sin. The need's universal. Nobody will deny that. Since the need is universal, the commission must be universal: "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."

The commission rests upon God's universal love. "God so loved the world, that he gave his Son." Do you know what that means? It means all humanity. He loved the world. God loved this lost world. He so loved it that he gave a commission to carry the message of salvation to as many as he loved, namely, "all the world"; yes, "every creature."

Connected with Gods' universal love, is his universal will. "Who will have all men to be saved." He gave himself a ransom for all. He's not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. Thank God, it's his will that all men be saved. God never willed the loss of any. The need is universal. His love reaches all. He loved the benighted heathen that never heard the name of Jesus, as well as he loved you. It's his will that they be saved. If anyone's lost in hell, it won't be because God willed it so. As far as his will is concerned, he wills to have all men to be saved. He wants them to be saved. So we have, then, the universal need, the universal love, and the universal will.

All this moved God to make a universal provision, on which the commission also rests. "Jesus Christ tasted death for every man." He died not only for a few, but for all. "Christ died for all." Then all can be saved. Do you believe that? I do. I believe all can be saved, because a universal provision has been made, and on that provision rests the commission. All men can be saved because Jesus tasted death for every man. He paid the penalty for a lost world.

Since a universal provision has been made, we have a universal invitation. "Look unto me and be ye saved." How many? A few predestined, foreordained people whom God chooses of his own will, selected out from the rest to be saved? No, the invitation says, "Look unto me and be ye saved, all ye ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else." The invitation is universal. It's as universal as the need, as universal as God's love, God's will and God's provision. Not a single one excluded. Thank God for the invitation.

There's not only a universal invitation, but a universal command. In Acts 17:30 we read: "And the time of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent." This's a universal command. He commands all men everywhere to repent. When the heathen comes in contact with the gospel, he must repent; and the enlightended likewise must repent or be lost.

The commission rests upon universal promises. We've seen that there's a universal need, a universal love, a universal will, a universal provision, a universal invitation, and a universal command that all men repent and be saved. I'm going to show you that God's promises are also universal, and upon these promises rests the commission. The gospel will be preached universally in all the inhabited earth. Now take that in its full sense. We're universalists in a Bible sense, but we're not universalists in the modern sense. We don't believe everybody will be universally saved, but the gospel will be preached in all the inhabited earth before the second coming of Jesus Christ. I want this to be an inspiration to the missionaries. You're simply paving the way for this stupendous work.

In Matt. 24:14, we read, "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." Before the end of the Christian dispensation, the gospel of the kingdom will be preached "in all the world" and to "all nations." In the American Standard Version we read: "In all the inhabited earth." When the gospel of the kingdom shall be preached to all the inhabited earth, to all nations, then shall the end come. Just as truly as Jesus spoke those words, it'll come to pass. For the Word of God can't be broken.

Let me give you another text, in Rev. 14:6, and that text applies directly to the time in which we now live. "And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people." I'm glad God's preachers are taking a part in the fulfilling of the very truth contained in this scripture. The word "angel" here stands for the entire ministry of a certain time, and that time is after the downfall of spiritual Babylon. We're living in a time when the very ministry is spoken of. Listen where it's to go: "Unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people." It's going to reach every nation under the sun before the end comes. Says one, "I thought that would be in the millennium." No, it's before the end that this's going to take place. The end will come then; the end of probation, the end of salvation, the end of the world. There'll be nothing beyond that, but the judgment and eternity.

Some say, "When's the millennium?" I have mine now. I'm reigning now. "Well, but won't the devil be bound?" That's follish. He's loosed, and we're reigning over him while he's loosed. The millennialists expect to reign over him when he's bound. We reign over the old fellow when he's loosed. Bless the Lord! We don't have to wait for the devil to be bound to reign over him. The Lord says, "I give you power over all the powers of the enemy." He falls prostrate at our feet. This takes place before the end.

( Remember...message delivered in 1913. )

Let me read another text which brings out the thought that the gospel shall be preached to every tongue and people. "For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea." "All the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of God." How much? A little drop of it here 'n there? "As the waters cover the sea." You know what the ocean's like. Just like the waters cover the sea, so God's Word declares, the knowledge of the Lord will cover the earth. I don't mean everbody's going to get saved all over the earth. Millennialists say that everybody's going to get righteous. But this implies the spread of the truth to every nook and corner of the earth until its blazing light will shine in every place. It's the knowledge of the glory of God: a knowledge of his truth. The gospel of Jesus Christ shall spread over all the earth like the waters cover the sea. On these promises rests the commission: "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." Doesn't it rest upon a good foundation, a solid basis? This ought to be an inspiratin to us in this glorious time when every provision's made for the dissemination of the truth to the inhabitants of the earth. We ought to grasp the flaming torch, and spring forth in every direction...scattering its light everywhere, with the inspiration that we're carrying out and fulfilling the sweeping promises of his Word. Wherever the gospel goes, Christianity goes; because the gospel and Christianity are inseparable. There'll be some, possibly not many compared with the lost, but there'll be some wherever the pure gospel goes, who'll accept it. Then, since the gospel will be universal, we must conclude logically that Christianity will be universal. But does the Bible sustain that thought?

In Dan. 2:34, 35 we read, "Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing-floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth."

A stone cut out without hands---that stone was none other than Christianity. Four universal empires are referred to in Nebuchadnezzar's dream. The head of gold represented the Babylonian empire. The breast and arms of silver, the Medo-Persian empire. The belly and thighs of brass, the Grecian empire. The legs of iron, the Roman empire. The two legs represent the eastern and western divisions of the Roman empire. The ten toes represent the ten divided kingdoms. But a stone was seen cut out of the mountain without hands, and it descended upon this great image. It struck it on it's feet, and smashed the image to pieces. The brass, silver and the gold were driven away like chaff from a summer threashing floor; and that stone grew until it became a great mountain that filled the whole earth. That little stone was the kingdom of God---Christianity---the church. While it was yet a stone, it smote the Roman empire. It wan't a mountain when it smote the Roman empire; it was yet a stone. But that stone was to become a great mountain and fill the whole earth. That wasn't put in the Word of God for nothing. I believe that that's true. Christianity will go to every nook and corner of the globe. It's going to Greenland's icy mountans, to the heart of Africa, through the walls of China, and to the islands of the sea. It'll penetrate every nook and corner of the globe, and there'll be found everywhere true disciples of Jesus who'll give honor and glory to his precious name.

Let me give a New Testament scripture, Acts. 13:47: "For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that hou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth." How far? To the ends of the earth. Praise God forever! Psa. 22:27: "All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee." Some, like millennialists, say that this means that everybody's going to be saved. It doesn't mean any such thing. It means that people from all the ends of the earth will be saved. The idea is, that the gospel will reach every nook and corner of the globe, and wherever it goes there'll be men that'll be saved, "and all the ends of the earth shall remember and turn unto the Lord." People out of every nation under the sun will be saved. These are the promises, and on these promises rests our commission.

Psa. 2:8: "Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession." That's what God said to his Son long before he sent him to this world. 'Just ask of me and I shall give thee the heathen...for thy possession. Your realm and your kingdom will spread through all the earth.' Universal, is it not? There were four universal world empires, Babylonian, Medo-Persian, Grecian, and the Roman. They were small compared to this one. Rome, I believe, ruled over three hundred millions of subjects, and the Babylonian kingdom was a great kingdom, and so was the Grecian. But there was a fifth universal kingdom to be established, and it was to reach to every corner of the earth. The uttermost parts of the earth shall be the possession of the King of kings, the Lord of lords. The time is fast approaching, I believe, when kings everywhere will bow their knees to Jesus Christ. The recent great political revolution in China, and the favorable attitude of its relers towards Christianity is a sample of the way God is working, and one of the signs of the times. "And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth." Zech. 9:10. says one, "You'll take out the main plank from under the millennial theory, if you apply all this in the current dispensation." This's where it applies.

Nothing of these promises refers to a millennium, or a future age. The prophecy was to reach its fulfilment following Christ's first advent. We're living in the age of time when it'll be fulfilled. "He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth. Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him." Psa. 72:8, 11. What does that mean? It means this, that Christianity will become as universal as the gospel itself. Its effects will be felt; its influence will be felt in every nation under the sun. Upon those facts, upon those fundamental truths, rests our text, the commission.

First, there was a universal need; Second, was God's universal love; Third, God's universal will; Fourth, God's universal provision; Fifth, his universal invitation; Sixth, his universal command; and Seventh, the promises of his Word are universal. On these rests the commission, which says, "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."

The Progress of Christianity

( Reminder...this message was shared in 1913. )

I want to give you a little history of the progress of Christianity in fulfilling this commission. This dispensation in which we live, the gospel dispensation, is the last and best of all dispensations. There'll be no other. John says, "It is the last time." If this's the last time, then there's no other time to follow. Paul says this's the end of the ages. He also says these are the last days. The days that go to make up the Christian dispensation are the last, and there can be none after the last. This is the last time.

Now Jesus began the great work himself. In Acts 1:1 we have this truth expressed. "Jesus began both to do and teach." What does that mean? The great work of the world's evangelization began in the ministry of Jesus Christ. He was a busy worker. He didn't have the modern means of conveyance we have. He couldn't get on the telephone or telegraph and send a message. There were no automobiles, no steamship lines, there were no stree-cars, and no railroads; there were none of our modern means of conveyance. Do you know that the majority of his labors were spent by walking around from place to place? Counting the three and one-half years he labored he accomplished wonders. The fact that he was seen by five hundred brethren at one time shows that he accomplished much. One time he rode a donkey into Jerusalem on a triumphal tour; but generally speaking, he walked from place to place. The farthest point he reached from Jerusalem...120 miles. His ministry was an important one. He began this great work.

When he sent forth his disciples, he let them know that his mission was so urgent that they should tarry for nothing. He said, "Greet no man by the way." Some may wonder why he said that. In those countries their greetings weren't like ours. We could say, "Good-morning, John." That wouldn't retard our progress a bit; but over there they got down on their faces, and got up; then fell down before them again, and again, in greeting one person, and it took a great deal of time to go through all that; and Jesus knowing the urgency of their mission, said, "Greet no man." Go to the place where God sends you and there deliver the message. When he sent the seventy, he gave them to understand that he'd follow them; that his message was so urgent that "ye will not have gone over the houses of Israel, until the Lord comes." That is, "you won't have reached all the places where I send you until I overtake you." He sent them before hin in whatsoever city ye would enter. I tell you, Jesus' life is an example to us.

After the death of Christ and his ascension into heaven, the gospel reached a little farther; it reached to the limits of the Roman empire. We have here a map of the world. It represents the old and new world. Here's the Mediterranean Sea. The Roman empire covered the countries that border the Mediterranean Sea, and that was the whole then-known world. It was probably the civilized world. The rest was practically unknown. All the great countries outside the limits of the Roman world with their millions were practically unknown. They had many fabulous stories about those hordes of savages that swept to and fro in those dark lands. The great Atlantic and Pacific were practically unknown. No man had ever crossed the briny deep. Their idea was that the Mediterranean Sea was the greatest body of water, and that the few countries surrounding it were the whole world.

The apostles went forth and carried the commission the Lord had delivered to them. Their means of conveyance were very limited. They had none of our modern means of travel. Paul traveled more extensively than any other of the ministers of his time, but under modern means of conveyance, you could have traveled over the same entire journeys in a short time. He traveled by foot, donkeys and camels, and sail boats. A few hours with our modern means of conveyance would cover distances that it took them many weary months and years to cover. But they went forth in the name of the Lord, and the result was that even before the death of the apostles the gospel began to shine forth to the very limits of the Roman empire. It spread around the Mediterranean Sea. It even reached the borders of Spain and several large churches were established in the northern borders of Africa, till the then-known world, which was the Roman empire, was quite well evangelized. This was Paul's understanding when he said: "The gospel has sounded out into all the world." "The world" to the people of that time was about half as big as the United States of America. That will explain to you a text you've often wondered about. We read that "The Queen of Sheba came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon." Today a good express train would cover that distance in a few hours. She went only a few hundred miles to see Solomon, but to them it was the uttermost part of the earth. They had a very limited understanding of the earth's area.

I'm glad we're living in this present age. You know we're living in the most favored time in the world's history. Thank God for the change! Ah, the great commission not only included those few countries that border on the Mediterranean Sea, but it reached every corner of the globe. This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the inhabited earth, and then shall the end come.

In carrying out this commission, the papacy spread out her borders and took in quite a bit of Europe and a little of Asia; but that was false Christianity. That was corrupted. Then Protestantism came into existence and she's spred out some. Protestantism has probably spread out farther then Rome did in her day; but even with what she's done, and not casting any reflection upon the labors of her missionaries, much of the world is in heathen darkness. Protestantism has accomplished great things; but even after 300 years of Protestant accomplishments, what have we? Let me give you some figures. More than a billion people are yet anti-Christian; 800,000,000 are in heathen darkness; every year there die 12,045,000 adult heathen without having received the message of Christ; each month, 1,300,750; every week, 250,000, more than 33,000 a day; more than 1,300 an hour, and about 30 adult heathen are dropping into their graves every minute. We still see a dark picture before us. That brings us to an important thought.

Work Yet To Be Accomplished

( Reminder, again...message delivered in 1913. )

The work yet to be accomplished in carrying out this great commission is immense. There's some responsibility with us as the church. India, China, Africa, Japan, the islands of the sea, have yet to be evangelized; and do you know, until the last few years, all those countries with thier teeming millions have been closed to the gospel? From the time that the angels sang the song, "Peace on earth, good will to men," those great nations that contained the great mass of the world's inhabitants, have been closed to the gospel, and to a very limited extent has the gospel ever penetrated them. But we've reached the time in God's own providence when those nations that have been closed to the gospel, which have been known as the uncivilized nations of the earth, are becoming civilized. They're opening up their doors, and it's God's plan to get the truth to them. Will the truth get to them? Yes. This gospel shall be preached to all the inhabited earth for a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come. There's a great work yet to be accomplished. When we think that there are probably 800,000,000 people still in heathen darkness, it means much to carry the gospel to them. A great work is yet to be accomplished.

The World Ready For The Gospel

That brings us to the next thought---The signs of the times and the Lord's leading and preparation for its accomplishment. All nations are opening up their doors for the first time to the gospel. Now, if you've studied the facts as we have them you know that this's true of the nations. Those nations whose doors have been locked against the gospel for ages are today becoming civilized and becoming modern in their methods, and the result is they're opening up their doors for the truth. With China, which seemed the most stubborn against the gospel, such a transformation has taken place that it's surprising when you think about it. China has been changed to a republic, and some of her leading people are at least nominally Christian. What a wonderful thought! This's simply the carrying out of God's purpose, and we have a part in its fulfilment.

Another sign of the times, is that every part of the earth is being explored today. You wonder why men hazard their lives and go to the North and South Poles. Brother Duncan and I had the privilege of having a long visit with Dr. Cook, and of hearing him lecture and show his pictures of his travels to the North Pole. He said to me, "I'm a poor man. And because I'm not a man of influence and means I was discredited and the honor was given to another." He said, "If ever a man reached the place, I did." Why do men thus hazard their lives? Why did a certain man go from England and lose his life trying to reach the South Pole? It looks like foolhardiness. After all, God has a hand in all those things. They're carrying out his purpose. They're opening up doors to carry the gospel seed and plant it in the very heart of places where they never heard of it.

Modern inventions.---Why, we stand almost aghast in wonderment, in amazement at what man is accomplishing in these days. Man harnesses the lightning and starts the wheels of machinery going everywhere by electricity. Our forefathers didn't dream of what you and I today have. We don't dream of what our children will see some day. What's all this for? It's the hand of God. All these things are intended by the Lord Almighty to carry out and to fulfil his plan and his purpose. God rules in the kingdoms of men. You can step on an express train here today, and in a few hours be on the Pacific Coast; then you'll transfer quickly and board the steamship that plows the sea; and in a little while you're in a foreign land with a message of truth. By electricity, a message can gird this globe in a few minutes of time. It's God's movement; it's God's way. I stand in astonishment when I realize it's all the hand of God, preparing for his great work. God's preparing the world for the accomplishmnent of this great service and work, and the carrying out to the fullest extent of the great commission he left.

I've known people who believed they'd live to see Jesus come. They thought just a little while and he'll be here in flaming fire; but he's not here yet. Some have believed that the Lord would get out a little handful, a remnant, and then come. The gathering of a holy remnant's part of his work, surely enough. That this's true, we don't deny. That was a truth, and we'll stay with it. The gathering of a holy remnant out of sects, constituting Zion, Jerusalem, the pure church in the earth today, is being accomplished; but is that the end of the work?

Turn to Zechariah 14th chapter, 6th and 7th verses: "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: but it shall be on day which shall be known to the Lord, not day nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light." We're living in the evening time---what's properly termed the evening light. It was clear and light in the morning, and the gospel in all its purity shone forth, but there came a great apostasy, a long dark night filled with superstition, a mixture of truth and error, at the end of which, in the evening of the dispensation, the clouds and darkness and mists of confusion and creedism and false doctrines, as far as God's people were concerned, was to pass away, and the clean truth of the gospel through the church was to be restored as in the morning. Thank God, we've reached that time, and people are being led out into the truth into the New Jerusalem, the church.

Is that all there is to be accomplished? Listen. "It shall come to pass in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea; and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be." It wasn't simply to get Jerusalem together, but that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem, toward the eastern and western sea," across the ocean to other lands. That living water is the gospel truth of salvation. Thank God, a missionary spirit is now taking hold of the church more firmly, in harmony with God's plan and leading.

Instead of thinking that our work's accomplished, and that the Lord will immediately come, the church's now beginning to feel the burden of carrying the gospel to all the world. Someone may say, "Well, you've changed." It's a good change in the right direction. It's a change that God's made, and I'm glad that I ever got out of my heart the idea that we're simply to gather a few out of Babylon. That part's all right. But I feel the burden of carrying this message to every corner of the globe. This's our commission. God never changed his plan, but he had to change our ideas to conform with this plan. "The Lord shall be King over all the earth. In that day there'll be one Lord and one name." There be a universal spread of Christianity to every part of the earth.

"This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." If you'll carefully study the language of this text, you'll observe that it means that this great accomplishment of the universal spread of the gospel to every nation of the earth is to take place just before the end, because the end will come when that's accomplished. We're living in that very time. No one knows when the Lord will come, but we do know that the gospel will reach every part of the earth. Ere long the Lord will come, and before he comes all this must be fulfilled. We're taking part in that very work. We're in the reformation that's fulflling those prophecies. Let's not oppose it. If we do, we'll be standing against the Lord and his work. We'd better throw down our prejudice and take our stand for the whole truth, help accomplish this great work, and then we can go to meet him in the skies.
