Gospel Preached Everywhere
(Revelation 14.7b-8)
Page 202

"'Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.' A second angel followed and said, 'Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great, which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries.'" (Revelation 14.7b-8)

People Holding Hands

People holding HandsOne of the signs that was to precede the end according to the Apostle Matthew in Matthew 24.14 was "this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come." This gospel would be announced "to every nation." Here was the fulfillment of that prophecy. The angel came with the message of the "eternal gospel" to all races, tribes, tongues and peoples. Describing it as "eternal" meant that the gospel was valid for ever, that even in a world which was crashing to its doom the Gospel truth still stood. It may have seemed strange that the angel with "the eternal gospel" was followed immediately by another angel of doom. But the gospel had of necessity a double-edged quality. The Gospel was good news for those who received it but it was judgment and bad news to those who rejected it. And the condemnation of those who rejected it was all the greater because they were given the chance to accept it. The words of the angel were interesting. "Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water." These words were a summons to worship the Creator of all things. The Word of the Lord lasts forever, and forever, and forever!
