There is a big difference between a teacher and a preacher. YAHUSHUA was both; but His main occupation during His stay on earth was preaching. Notice how He introduced Himself and listed His 'terms of reference' at the start of His ministry. Especially note His threefold reference to preaching.
|Luke 4:18||"The Spirit of YaHuWaH is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to:
In our zeal to present YaHuWaH 's Torah, to publish the truth about the Signature of the Most High and Satan's counterfeit the Mark of the Beast, we must not forget to preach The Gospel.
What is the Gospel? The Gospel is the good news of salvation. The Gospel is YaHuWaH 's offer of mercy and life to sinners destined for hell. The Gospel is your passport to the Kingdom of Heaven where you are invited to live for all time with YaHuWaH Himself. The Gospel is the sweetest and best message this world has ever heard. The Gospel is the good news of salvation made possible by the Savior's death on your behalf. The Gospel offers you freedom from sin, suffering and death - at no cost to yourself. YaHuWaH 's only begotten Son came to Earth to preach the Gospel to the poor: and that includes you and me.
The world is reeling under a burden of bad news. Daily we are bombarded with it. From all angles come a sickening avalanche of violence, vice, vandalism, misery and death. What's more, the situation worsens as time passes. The need for good news - the Gospel - is therefore extremely urgent. And so the Gospel must be preached - more than ever - to counteract the imbalance of woe.
The Savior, the Apostles all set the pattern.
|Matthew 11:4||YAHUSHUA answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:
5: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
|Mark 1:14||Now after that John was put into prison, YAHUSHUA came into Galilee, preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of YaHuWaH.
|Luke 20:1||And it came to pass that on one of those days, as He taught the people in the Temple and preached the Gospel ...|
The Gospel of the Kingdom of YaHuWaH that YAHuSHUA preached was good news. In the Sermon on the Mount the Savior introduces the various aspects of this good news. I will briefly list them.
|Matthew 5:1-12||A list of blessings||... This is good news.
|v 13-16||The value and work of a believer||... This is good news.
|v 17-32||The eternal nature of YaHuWaH's Torah||... This is good news.
|v 33-48||The greatness of YaHuWaH's mercy||... This is good news.
|Matthew 6:1-18||The rewards for humility and prayer||... This is good news.
|v 19-34||The providence of the Almighty||... This is good news.
|7:1-5||The final victory of true judgement||... This is good news.
|v 6-11||The value of truth and prayer||... This is good news.
|v 12-20||Invaluable warnings about deception||... This is good news.
|v 21-29||The final overthrow of hypocrisy||... This is good news.|
His friends would, understandably, praise Him. But consider these testimonies of the Roman rulers after they had examined Him by every method they could imagine - beatings, insult and humiliation.
|John 18:38||Pilate saith unto Him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in Him no fault at all.
|Luke 23:47||Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified YaHuWaH, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.|
Now consider Messiah's evaluation of Himself:
|John 15:10||... I have kept My Father's commandments, and abide in His love.
|John 8:46||Which of you convinceth Me of sin?....
|John 17:4||I have glorified Thee on the Earth: I have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do.|
No man in all history could honestly say that of himself except YAHUSHUA the Messiah.
Though the Savior never, to our knowledge, wrote a book or traveled to foreign countries to preach, who will doubt these facts:
Yes, the Savior has had an enormous effect on the world. And even though comparatively few people avail themselves of His salvation, there are in total many millions who will be in the Kingdom of YaHuWaH because of what He has done. When He sees the great gathering the Bible says He shall be satisfied.
|Isaiah 53:11||He shall see of the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied: by His knowledge shall My righteous servant justify many; for He shall bear their iniquities.|
This is the Gospel era. Soon it will be over. The acceptable year is a time when mercy and salvation are available and must be accepted. Failure to accept the Gospel in the acceptable year will be disastrous for millions of souls who have spurned YaHuWaH 's offer of mercy and salvation. Now is that accepted time.
Have you accepted salvation? Or are you putting it off? Make the following prayer your own - before it is too late!
|Psalm 69:13||But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O YaHuWaH, in an acceptable time: O Elohim, in the multitude of Thy mercy hear me, in the truth of Thy salvation.|
Failure to act on these facts is the greatest mistake any soul can make. It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of these facts. Heed them.
