YOUR MISSION AS A CHRISTIAN | KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional

1 Corinthians 9:16-17. For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.

Beloved,, because you are the true child of your Father in heaven, you must align with His earnest unchanging all consuming passions.  See them.
1. He does not want anyone, including you and everyone in your world of influence to perish. i.e Your unsaved spouse, children, parents, in laws, siblings, close and extended relatives, neighbours. Colleagues etc.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

2. He wants all men and that includes you and everyone in your world of influence to be saved.

1 Timothy 2:3-4. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

3. He  paid the supreme sacrifice to accomplish this all important, all consuming passion for everyone, most especially you and everyone in your world of influence , to be saved.

Romans 8:32. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

John 3:16. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

To create awareness of His unchanging eternal passions for all humanity of all ages, especially you, He desires the word of salvation published. See it.

Psalms 68:11: The Lord gave the word: great wasthe company of those that published it.

Isaiah 52:7: ¶How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

Nahum 1:15: Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.

This awareness becomes important, because multitude thronging to hell daily are unaware of this all consuming passion of your loving Father in heaven, so they can not do the necessary requisite for their freely provided salvation. See it.

Romans 10:13-15. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?  And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Beloved, see what He had done and He is still doing for the awareness to be created.

Isaiah 6:8. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

Mark 16:15: And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

He promised all His children, most importantly you, the gift and baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Luke 24:49: ¶And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Acts 1:8: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judæa, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Acts 2:38-39. Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Beloved, God your loving Father gave all His children of all ages, including you, three important callings, that you shall be answerable to Him, whenever you get to  eternity.

Ezekiel 3:18. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

See the callings:
1. High calling.

2. Holy calling.

3. Heavenly calling.

These callings are given to make every child in the family and Kingdom of God to preach the gospel with wisdom from on high.

Ecclesiastes 12:9-10. And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs. The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.

The preaching of this everlasting gospel is so important that even angel shall be involved.

Revelation 14:6: 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,

Beloved, begin to preach the gospel henceforth to avoid God replacing you with stone. He will not replace you with stone in Jesus name. So preach the everlasting gospel and ensure that you and everyone in your world of influence are saved.

Matthew 3:9. And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

Dearly beloved,  the blessed Holy Spirit places the book of Corinth at the disposal of believers of all ages and you,  to remind, help, strengthen and enabled them fulfill the commission of Christ, for them on this side of heaven. See it.

1 Corinthians 9:16-17. For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.

1 Corinthians 1:18. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

1 Corinthians 1:21-24. For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

Romans 1:14-17. I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

See how Bible days believers, men and women of like passion addicted themselves to this commission from Christ. If they could do it, you too must do same and you shall do if in Jesus name. Receive grace to do so in Jesus name.

Acts 5:42. And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

THE BOOK OF CORINTH, THE CENTRALITY  OF  JESUS’S  COMMISSION  FOR YOU  AND  BELIEVERS  OF ALL AGES  ON EARTH
Friend, the simple reason why some people shall partake of the dawning rapture and some shall miss out is their attitude to the commission of Christ for all believers.
This is because multitude in Christendom globally are departing from living by and preaching the entire gospel. I am persuaded you are not one of them.  See prophecies of scriptures on this.

2 Timothy 4:1-4. I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

1 Timothy 4:1-2. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2 Peter 2:1-3. But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Friend, to help you not to be caught in this web, see what you must do with the gospel.
1. Believe the gospel.

Mark 1:15. And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

2. Obey  the gospel.

Romans 10:16. But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

3.. Preach the gospel as commissioned by Christ.

Mark 16:15. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Mark 16:20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

Doing all these shall guarantee your readiness to partake in the  rapture and avoid great tribulation. It shall be so for you in Jesus name.

Revelation 3:10-11. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
