THE POWER OF PREACHING THE GOSPEL

“I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfil your ministry.” II Timothy 4:1-3, 5 NKJV

 

We’ve been charged with great responsibility of changing people’s life with the gospel of Christ. Preaching of the gospel is the single most important thing in the world. In Genesis God preached creation into existence, and he delegated that authority to us to continue to preach his word. Pharaoh wouldn’t have built his empire if Joseph was not there to guide him how to build a prosperous nation. Nebuchadnezzar knew the value of having prophetic men in his team. Babylon was ruled by the wisdom of magicians and wise men who were appointed to advice the king. But the Wisdom of Daniel was 7 times better than the Babylonians.

 The gospel of Jesus Christ is the hope for the nations, therefore preachers must preach the full council of God.

We’ve been disappointed by most liberation movements in the continent of Africa.  Most countries are still governed by the same parties that got them independence.  The only change is the figure heads but same ideas that got us in this mess and corruption. A word from God can change everything

Alexis-Charles-Henri Clérel de Tocqueville (July 29, 1805 – April 16, 1859) was a French political thinker and historian best known for his Democracy in America (appearing in two volumes: 1835 and 1840).

‘I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbours and her ample rivers – and it was not there . . . in her fertile fields and boundless forests and it was not there . . . in her rich mines and her vast world commerce – and it was not there . . . in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution – and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.’

 

If we start preaching the true Gospel, Africa will not be known for civil wars, poverty, corruption and mass immigrations but for the word we preach. The ships that come to Africa will come carrying precious gifts to honour the word that will be coming from our pulpits. God is about to remove our disgrace, because ships that are leaving our harbours they are carrying gold, diamonds, platinum etc. They comeback carrying second hand clothes…

Great people brought gifts to King Solomon, honouring his gift of wisdom.

Let’s us preach
