In the first five books of the New Testament, we receive special promises from our Lord. Each of those promises come with a prerequisite. The prerequisite or required condition was the same. We call it the Great Commission. The great GO YE!
Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in the earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
The Promise: PROMISE of HIS PRESENCE
Mark 16:15-18 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.“
The Promise: HIS PROTECTION
In Luke, the Promise is: HIS PLAN — 24:47
In John, the Promise is: HIS PEACE — 20:21
In Acts, the Promise is: HIS POWER — 1:8
Jesus was Promising His followers if they would be committed to building His kingdom, (GO YE), then He (JESUS) would give them His Presence, His Protection, His Plan, His Peace, and His Power.
