But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said unto you. - John 14:26
Rom 1:5, "For we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name."
As an apostolic ministry we are reaching into over 50 nations.
We are dedicated to be obedient to the commission, and see every nation reached with the gospel of Jesus the Messiah.
"The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God" Mark 1:1.
In this verse we have five if not six important foundational words that together make an awesome proclamation concerning that which we most surely believe.
• The first word: the beginning,
• the second word: the gospel,
• the third word: Jesus,
• the fourth word: Christ [which is the translation of Messiah],
• the fifth phrase: the Son of God, made up of two words: Son and God
Teaching thoroughly from this verse will help all to understand the gospel of Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God more fully. To pursue this study, we recommend you go to the manual "The Glory of Messiah", which is available on our website: www.revivalministries.org.au
In this newsletter we are looking at what is the beginning of the Gospel.
The first word that we need to understand is "the beginning": what is the beginning of the gospel? How did the gospel begin? Jesus came at a certain time saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel" Mk.1:15. This is the first preaching of the gospel. What is the context or the background to Jesus appearing and beginning to preach? To answer this question, we are simply looking in the context of Mark 1, the first fifteen verses. In fact, the greater context of the 'beginning of the gospel' is in the Old Testament record and the words of the prophets. Paul tells us in Romans 1 that "the gospel of God was promised before through His prophets in the holy Scriptures" (v1b-2).
Paul confirms this in Galatians 3:8 "And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, 'In you all the nations of the earth shall be blessed'". God's promises to Abraham were not just to his natural descendants through Isaac and Jacob, but rather to all the Gentiles who would come to faith in Jesus Christ. Paul goes on to say, "Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, 'And to seeds,' as of many, but as of one, 'And to your Seed', who is Christ" (Gal.3:16). Then he says in verse 29, "And if you are of Christ then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."
