Mark 13:10 And the gospel must be first preached to all nations.
Mark 14:9 Truly I tell you, wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.
1 Corinthians 9:23 I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings. The Need for Self Discipline
Galatians 2:5 We did not give in to them for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you.
Ephesians 6:15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
Matthew 8:35 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
I can see the headline news: "God Gave His Only Son to Save the World!"
What a time it must have been! You had the Pharisees that were constantly trying to dismantle or disassociate with the real news. They wanted no part of it except to stop it. And to stop Jesus! They sent out the fake news! And spread false rumors that he was a fake.
I can see how this kind of correlates too, today’s world. We have the journalist that report the fake news and we have the real news of those that we can trust such as CBN: Judicial Watch; and, yes, even Trump News!
We all want to stay informed of the real news because we know from experience that fake news can cause dissention and unbelief. But isn’t that the goal of the enemy is to divide and separate us. I must say he’s been doing a good job!
But now, it’s up to us to stay in the word and stay connected with the truth!
John 8:32 “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Will the truth set the world free of racism and division? Yes, if we all believed!
But hasn’t the enemy ever since the beginning of creation, has tried to disguise the truth!
We know from our teachings that the devil is a liar. He’s the father of all lies, just like the serpent in the garden and the Pharisees that tried to stop Jesus.
People should know by now that you can’t stop Jesus, he just uses you to fulfill his plan and our destiny.
They really are blind.
We were warned about "Fake News"
2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine, Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
Romans 10:17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:7 For we live by faith, not by sight.
