God’s purposes and plans will always prevail.
Right throughout history there have been and will continue to be those who reject , ignore and even those who oppose the word of God, both his written word ( the Bible )and Jesus Christ who is the ‘Eternal Word’ made flesh. But nothing can or ever will stop God’s plans and purposes through the power of His word (Isaiah 40:8, Isaiah 55:11 and Matthew 24:35)
So what is Gods purpose and plan?
It has always been God’s plan and purpose to provide salvation to everyone who believes.
Luke 19:10, John 3:16, Romans 10:9-17 – When Jesus ascended back into heaven he sent the Holy Spirit to empower his followers to be witnesses of Him. They were to carry the message of the gospel to the ends of the earth.
Acts 1:8 – Everywhere the word God (the gospel) was preached, people responded and turned to the Lord and were saved. God also confirmed his word with signs, wonders and miracles.
Rom 1:16, 1 Cor 1:18, Acts 14:3 – The more the authorities tried to stop them speaking, the more they spoke.
Acts 4: 17-18, 29-31 Acts 5:38 – Great persecution broke out against the Church but the word of God continued to spread and flourish. Nothing could stop it.
Acts 12 – An account of one Kings battle against the word of God and how he lost it, even the killing of one of the apostles and the imprisoning of another couldn’t halt the progress of the gospels message.
Will we be Jesus’ witnesses wherever we are? Will we speak boldly of his life, death and resurrection to all, regardless of the opposition and cost?
