A Christian Believes The Gospel Has Already Been Preached

“Be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard and which was preached to every creature under heaven” (Col 1:23)

Col 1:23 says that the gospel was preached to every creature under heaven, therefore the command in Mark 16:15 to preach the gospel has been fulfilled, that means that the Bible was not written for this time period.

The whole purpose for preaching the gospel was so that God’s chosen people would be saved from the coming destruction that was going to happen to Jerusalem.

The end of the age in Matt 24:3, is the end of the Mosaic age, that age ended when the temple was destroyed, the gospel had to be preached before the end of the age happened, the temple was destroyed in AD70.

The letters in the New Testament were written to teach the church the truth about Yeshua the Messiah, to warn the church about the Lord’s coming judgment upon Jerusalem & to teach the church about what it means to be led by the Spirit.

Everything in the New Testament has already happened, the gospel was preached to every creature under heaven (Col 1:23), Jerusalem was destroyed in AD70 & those who have been predestined by God to be born of the Spirit are born of the Spirit (Eph 1:11).

Those who believe God’s Son, Yeshua is the Messiah that don’t practice sin are born of the Spirit (born of God).

Ephesians 1:11 – In whom also we [those who are born of the Spirit] have obtained an inheritance being predestined according to God’s purpose who works all things after the counsel of His own will.

1 John 5:1 – Whosoever believes Yeshua is the Messiah is born of God [born of the Spirit].

1 John 3:9 – No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed [the Holy Spirit] abides in him or her; and he or she cannot sin, because he or she is born of God [born of the Spirit].

1 John 5:18 – We know [absolutely] that anyone born of God [born of the Spirit] does not [deliberately and knowingly] practice committing sin, but the One Who was begotten of God carefully watches over {and} protects him [Christ’s divine presence within him preserves him against the evil], and the wicked one does not lay hold (get a grip) on him {or} touch [him].

The gospel had already been preached to every creature under heaven by the time that Colossians had been written, that means that everything in the New Testament has already happened.

Mark 16:15 – And the Messiah said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

The gospel had to be preached to the Roman world and then the end of the age (Matt 24:3) would happen, that’s what Matt 24:14 is saying. Matt 24:14 is not saying, “the gospel has to be preached to entire planet”.

The Greek word “oikoumene” for the word “world” in Matt 24:14 is referring to the Roman world, “oikoumene” is also the word that is used for the word “world” in Rev 12:9, both Matt 24:14 and Rev 12:9 are talking about the Roman world. Matt 24:14 and Rev 12:9 are not talking about the entire planet.

Rev 12:9 And the great dragon [the dragon in Rev 12:3 is Rome] was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and satan, which deceiveth the whole world [oikoumene – the Roman world], he was cast out to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world [oikoumene – the Roman world] for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end [of the age] come. The “end” that is spoken of in Matt 24:14 is the “end of the age” that is spoken of in Matt 24:3.

The gospel had to be preached to the Roman world as a whole before the end of the age.

The Greek word for the word “world” in Matt 24:3 is “aion” or “age”, the word “aion” or “age” is referring to a time period, the word “aion” is not referring to the entire planet.

Matthew 24:3 And as the Messiah sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world [aion – age]?

The age that is spoken of in Matt 24:3 is the age of the law, the Mosaic age. The end of the age happened when the temple was destroyed during the destruction of Jerusalem in 70AD, therefore everything in Matt 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21:5-33 has already happened.

A Christian is someone that is led by the Holy Spirit, no one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say, “The gospel has to be preached” because that doesn’t agree with the truth that is written in the Bible. No one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say something that does not agree with the truth that is written in the Bible.

If someone claims to be Christian and says something that is not true, the person is not led by the Holy Spirit, the person is led by the flesh, those who are led by the flesh are not the children of God.

Romans 8:14 – For as many as are led by the Spirit of God [the Holy Spirit], they are the children of God.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say it is ok for there to be different denominations in the church, that it is ok for a Christian to believe something different than what another Christian believes, but the Bible does not support different denominations in the church, 1 Corinthians 1:10 says that the church is supposed to believe the same thing.

1 Cor. 1:10 – But I urge {and} entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that all of you be in perfect harmony {and} full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions {or} factions {or} divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions {and} judgments.
