As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “ Tell us,” they said “When will these things be? And what will be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?” Matthew 24:3
After listing a number of signs, He reveals one of those signs would be that the gospel would be preached to the entire world.
“This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14)
“And the gospel must first be preached to all nations” (Mark 13:10)
With technology advancing, the bible has reached nations through the use of television and radio, and internet. Hundreds of millions have had access to the message of the Bible. Over the last 50 years it hasn’t been possible to reach every nation, but with the internet everything is changing.
Many people proclaim that Christ could come back any day. Is that true? Or,……are we still years from reaching everyone in the globe?
According to Wycliffe Bible Translators, the bible still hasn’t been translated into 1,860 languages, which is equivalent to 180 million people who need to be reached.
This is yet another prophecy that needs to be fulfilled before Christ can return. We are close, but many prophecies need to come to pass. Get ready, but don’t be fooled that He can come back any moment. Here is just one example of a prophecy that needs to be fulfilled before his second coming.
