Gospel Preached Everywhere (Revelation 14.7b-8)

"'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 which was to precede the end according to Matthew 24.14 "And 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 will be preached everywhere "to every nation." Here is the fulfillment of that prophecy. The angel comes with the message of the "eternal gospel" to all races and tribes and tongues and peoples. "Eternal" means that the gospel is valid for ever, that even in a world which is crashing to its doom th Gospel truth still stands. It may seem strange that the angel with "the eternal gospel" is followed immediately by another angel of doom. But the gospel has of necessity a double-edged quality. The Gospel is good news for those who receive it but it is judgment to those who reject it. And the condemnation of those who reject it is all the greater because they were given the chance to accept it. The words of the angel are interesting. "Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water." They are a summons to worship the Creator of all things. The Word of the Lord lasts forever, and forever, and forever1✞
