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. – Matthew 24:14
Media is such a powerful tool to aid in getting the gospel message spread throughout the entire world. When I was a child, I used to wonder how will everyone in the whole wide world be able to learn about Jesus. As I became and adult I began to realize the answer wasn’t only through missionaries visiting various countries but through the media. Whether it be television, radio, newspapers, Internet, etc., nearly everyone can have access to this amazing gospel message.
While everyone has the access to this message that God cares, and He loves you so much that He allowed His only son to come down and sacrifice His life for you, so that you can be victorious over a life of sin and death. Its unfortunate and saddening to think that not everyone will accept such an amazing testament and gift of love, that He will save His people from their sins [Matthew 1:21]. However, the spreading of this gospel message can and will hasten the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The two main questions we need to ask our selves are: “Are we prepared to stand true to God during the investigative judgement?” and “Are we ready to meet our maker face to face, being a complete reflection of His character manifested?”
We Can Hasten His Coming—Christ tells us when the day of His kingdom shall be ushered in. He does not say that all the world will be converted, but that “this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14). By giving the gospel to the world, it is in our power to hasten the coming of the day of God. Had the church of Christ done her appointed work as the Lord ordained, the whole world would before this have been warned, and the Lord Jesus would have come to the earth in power and great glory.—The Review and Herald, November 13, 1913, 353.
We must pray, that through all the avenues of media that we have access to, that we are doing what is pleasing in God’s sight and He will be able to say “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” [Matthew 25:21]
