One Last Push

With every generation the Gospel has to be given to that generation. Just because a previous generation brought the message of Jesus doesn’t mean it will continue on. In fact, each generation has a unique and specific movement of God and each generation has to speak to it’s generation about the Good News. If not, the movement dies out… literally. Each generation represents a push, like a woman in labor, of Jesus until the glorious day His arrival.

Our generation is no different. And today, we actually have something going on that I think is very interesting. The proliferation of the gospel tied to technology.

But first, what is a Biblical generation? Well you can look at it two ways. It is 70 years or 80 with good strength.

Psalm 90:10

“As for the days of our life, they contain seventy years, or if due to strength, eighty years.”

Think about your parents, they would be one generation and you would be the next. My parents are apart of the Baby Boomer generation so I would be the next generation after them.

What is different than our parents generation? Well… a lot, but the main thing is technology and specifically the internet. I am convinced that if a revival occured today, with the media outlets in place and the internet available… all it would take is one last push and the gospel would be heard in every nation and in every tounge. And… this revival is Biblically predicted in the last days.

Acts 2:17

“In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.”

Before God removes His Spirit from the earth (Tribulation), the Holy Spirit pours Himself out to reach every last person He can. God is so moved to save every last person that there will be an outpouring of His Spirit on earth.

Ezekiel 33:11

“As surely as I live, says the Sovereign Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of wicked people. I only want them to turn from their wicked ways so they can live. Turn! Turn from your wickedness, O people of Israel! Why should you die?”

God’s heart is for all men and women, that they may be saved from their sin (which is death) and find life.

With Wycliffe Bible translators nearing the end of their goal to have the Gospel translated into every remaining tounge (vision2025.org) we are approaching some unprecedented milestones in the Christ following movement.
