Read: Daniel 12:1-13 1st John 3:11-24

“The Gospel Will Never Perish”

The fact that nowadays we still encounter offense to the Gospel need not surprise us, since Christ Himself meets with it … we can expect to fare no better that my Lord Jesus. Since He experienced apostasy, I might know that among us not everyone will stand with the Lord. In Matthew 10:25 we read: “it is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign those of his household.” Therefore let them proceed with their persecutions.
This doctrine will not perish or crumble because of them. The Gospel will, and must be constructed on a different foundation, from that of might or of great, learned, and intelligent scholars. Let the angry princes or the ranting and raving bishops persecute the Gospel, let the learned people abandon it. The Gospel will be despised outwardly by the world, be trodden underfoot and persecuted – we will never stop this. Some, who claim to be Christians will fall away – we will never stop this. In the end, Jesus will reign supreme – trust Him – endure with Him – live with Him.
