PREACHING AND UNDERSTANDING WHAT THE GOSPEL IS!
“The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels (see Matthew” 13:39).
After our most recent missions to Pakistan and seeing over 700,000 beautiful Muslim people receive the Gospel I have become pierced with a new love for understanding, preaching and presenting the simplicity and the power of the gospel. I think it is very important as believers for us to remember what and why we believe what we believe. My prayer is that in reading and maybe sharing this article many will be baptized with a fresh fire to go into all the world and release heaven on earth.
God is now releasing the angels that gather and reap the harvest. These same angels remove every hindrance and obstacle to the harvest. One aspect of the angels’ roles, as we see in Hebrews 1:14 is to minister to those who will inherit salvation. In other words, angels are directly involved in the harvest.

The word gospel means “good news,” which is the message of forgiveness for sin through the atoning work of Jesus Christ. It is essentially God’s rescue plan of redemption for those who will trust in His divine Son in order to be reconciled to a just and holy God.
HARVEST TIME AMERICA!
What, according to Jesus, was the purpose of his whole mission? What is the purpose of Christianity?
“I came to call sinners to repentance” (Lk. 5:32).
“I came to save that which was lost” (Lk. 19:10).
“I came to destroy the works of the Devil” (see 1 Jn. 3:8).
But how did he do it?
“I must preach the Gospel about the Kingdom of God. That’s what I was sent to do” (Luke 4:43).
The Gospel is the Power of God!
"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."
THE MIRACLE WORKERS!
(Rom 1:16 KJV)
"And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.”
(Luke 4:32 KJV)
"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 Cor 1:18 KJV)
The Example of Jesus!
» And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. (Matthew 4:23)
» And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. (Matthew 9:35)
» Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel." (Mark 1:14-15)
The Preacher’s Message!
“We were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention ... but as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak because we would not be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.” (vs. 2,4,9).
Yes, the gospel of God was the exclusive message of the apostle Paul. He said in 1 Cor. 9:16, “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!”
What is the core of the Gospel?
"Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures. "That's the first fundamental principle of gospel truth. "and that He was buried." and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. So those are the first two essential points of the gospel. "that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that he was buried." The crucifixion of Christ and the burial of Christ. The resurrection is the proof of the power of God.
We must remember that Christ did not just give us salvation so we don't go to hell. We must understand after receiving this gospel God has redeemed us to put heaven on the inside of us. The finished work of the cross and identity in Christ is an important part of the message on the other side of the cross.
The gospel that Paul preached was about Jesus Christ, specifically his death and resurrection, and the good news that we can be saved through what he has done.
Jesus said " This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day” (Luke 24:44, 46). Jesus commissioned the apostles to preach this message about salvation through him: “Repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things”
Paul gives another brief definition of the gospel in his letter to the Colossians. He says that believers are reconciled to God if they continue in their faith. He then says, “This is the gospel that you heard” (Colossians 1:23)
Finally, Christ offers His salvation as a free gift (Romans 5:15; 6:23), that can only be received by faith, apart from any works or merit on our part (Ephesians 2:8–9). As the apostle Paul tells us, the gospel is “the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile” (Romans 1:16).
End Times and the Gospel!
» And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14)
The true sign that Christ is near! (Acts 3:20-21) And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: "Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began."
The second coming of Christ will not be complete until we see the restoration of all things! Blessings
