First, it’s the last recorded personal instruction given by Jesus to His disciples.
Second, it’s a special calling from Jesus Christ to all His followers to take specific action while on this earth.
The Great Commission is found in the Gospel of Matthew:
Matthew 28 (KJV)
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 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.
Most people believe we are totally happy just standing our ground. Although most people don’t even do that nowadays! But, according to Jesus Christ we are meant to take the offensive stance. What does that mean?
In the Great Commission, Jesus calls every Christian to step out in faith and spread The Word. This is faith in action! People who obey this command change their spiritual lives forever! Not just because we have been transformed, which indeed is a miracle but also because we are meant to act according to The Word and place our Armor of GOD on and act as if it’s a war taking place.
Because there is!!
Many Believers have taken great sacrifices within their lives…while others remain couch potatoes thinking that as long as you’ve been saved…it’s all good in da hood!
Many Believers have made incredible sacrifices, traveling to remote regions of the world beyond the civilized cities into jungles and deserts. And while this is courageous…no doubt! Taking the offense in spiritual warfare is even more challenging. Because we live in a time of turmoil, we need to wake up and SERVE OUR KING.
True, you may say…there has always been turmoil and trouble. But, the veil has thinned. The veil between the supernatural and natural. Demons are charging….driving their way into your lives in numerous ways. You might think it’s bad ‘luck’. Well, let me tell you this…luck derives from the word LUCIFER!
The definition of luck (or chance) varies by the philosophical, religious, mystical, or emotional context of the one interpreting it; according to the classic Noah Webster’s dictionary, luck is “a purposeless, unpredictable and uncontrollable force that shapes events favorably or unfavorably for an individual, group or cause”. Yet the author Max Gunther defines it as “events that influence one’s life and are seemingly beyond one’s control”.
Many cultures believe in luck and superstition. Asians use Feng Shui…and they love their fortune cookies! Romans and their gods, Aztecs, Mayans and Incas…performed rituals…for example: bloodletting. This is equal to tattooing in modern times. Africans use voodoo, and hoodoo. Shamans and witches use incantations.
Considering these examples, what does it make you think of? MAGIC. Magic is the opposite of MIRACLES.
Do you see my point?
People rely on measure of magic…which is basically witchcraft to help them!
Satan uses measures to change the Great Commission by chaos.
Isaiah 60 (KJV)
2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
SATAN IS THE KING OF DECEPTION:
Satan attacks The Word of GOD
Satan attacks family
Satan attacks church
Satan attacks health
Satan attacks finances
Satan attacks gender
Satan attacks sexuality
Satan attacks our emotions
Satan attacks our flesh
Satan attacks our minds…
these are a few examples…so what does this reveal? Satan takes offensive maneuvers.
We are called to arms…this is a war.
Within the Christian community, the instruction of Jesus Christ to His disciples is to spread THE GOSPEL! The Word of GOD…there’s nothing in the world like it, right? Well, at one time that was probably true but in these modern times we live in…GOD’S Master Plan has been manipulated by Satan. He performs such deeds to the extent that even hard-core Believer’s are taken into the mix of it all, thinking they are following The Word, but they’re actually following the world.
There is much debate over this…in fact you can place yourself on FACEBOOK and NO DOUBT ABOUT IT, you will find yourself an argument over ANYTHING. This is so true that a brethren recently posted remarks about Billy Graham and I warned him that Billy is a double agent! A satanist…did you know that? Before I knew it I was being attacked…BY CHRISTIANS!
Attacks are not a strange occurrence in The Bible either…you see, the disciples were all attacked. Jesus Christ warned them, and He warns us…this kind of work is for the THICK SKINNED! You better have elephant skin, now-a-days!
DID JA KNOW?
So, the Great Commission is about Jesus Christ dispatching disciples during His ministry…(NOT IN CHURCHES), sending them out to all nations and giving them power over DEMONS! This also included the SEVENTY DISCIPLES. I believe this is an extension/parallel of GOD’S Chosen People (The Jews) and the gentiles…(US)!
A demon is a supernatural and often (more than not), a malevolent entity. This is considered to be an unclean spirit, a fallen angel, or a spirit of unknown type which causes demonic possession, calling for an exorcism.
I FIRMLY believe that anything against GOD is a demon! People love to argue over semantics but the truth is the truth! If you’re not for GOD, then you’re against HIM!
We read of King Solomon who turned against GOD and began summoning/conjuring and controlling demons.
We must understand that this is even more of a…
The CALMING BEFORE THE STORM..
The word-lamassu derives from Sumerian/Akkadian language…it is considered a protective deity. Also called a shedu…it is said that they represent the zodiacs, parent-stars or constellations.
I find this VERY interesting in that demons are an extension of Satan and his theology. And when the fallen angels fell to earth, they inhabited the Island of Atlantis (which coincides with the Great Deluge), when it sank they merged with cultures all over the world, teaching them false doctrines/religions.
These demons have never left. They still exist. They’ve been around for thousands of years and
You CANNOT write about, teach about, or even talk about this subject without including the REAL TRUTHS which the world, and especially the elite…hide. Their “great commission” is not even for The Jesus Christ of The Bible! Do you see how deep that made this issue? Like falling down into the rabbit hole!
I will touch on some of this information but my purpose here is to tell the story about how The Gospel works, and for whom it covers…so here goes it!
When the fallen angels came down to earth (because they were kicked out of the higher heavens where GOD resides), their goal is to sidetrack humanity and catch our souls/spirits in the process! Satan teaches them that we are not worthy, but they are. We are mere bugs in the dirt of a ball which spins out of control.
When the fallen angels, and their descendants came here, their main goal was to set up false religions because Satan knew that GOD produced THE WORD, and HIS Son, Jesus Christ. In order to accomplish this task, they must set up a huge conspiracy. Yes, Satan is all about conspiracies…where do you think the elite (secret societies) learn it?
They lived on the Island of Atlantis but GOD saw how wicked they, and humanity were and decided to create the Great Deluge to ride the Earth of some of it, yes only some. Why? That doesn’t make sense, you’re asking? Well, it makes perfect sense. FREEWILL is about choices, and the choices that EACH and EVERY soul/spirit that lives will make.
After Atlantis, they spread their venom over the entire Earth. Beginning in the Middle East, but why? This is where Jerusalem is!
They call themselves many names, they use many false religions to attempt to identify themselves—falsely. Confusing the masses is part of the game.
Sumeria was/is a prime location!
Humanity is but a bug to them…they want nothing more than to stomp us out!
In The Bible, we have numerous clues and revelations…one of those are the creatures that GOD has HIS Word describe. Multiple creature in one? That’s what the book of Revelation describes…
The four living creatures are found in Revelation 4:6-9; 5:6-14; 6:1-8; 14:3; 15:7; and 19:4. The texts that describe these creatures do not indicate that they are figurative—they are real, actual beings.
The four living creatures (literally “beings”) are a special, exalted order of angelic being or cherubim. This is clear by their close proximity to the throne of God. Ezekiel 1:12-20 suggests that they are in constant motion around the throne.
Revelation 5:6-14 describes the duties or purposes of the four living creatures. They fall down and worship the Lamb, Jesus Christ, offering the same reverence to Him that they did to the Father (Revelation 4:10), proof positive of the deity of Jesus Christ. Along with the 24 elders, they have “harps and golden vials full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.” Harps are frequently associated with worship in the Old Testament, as well as with prophecy (2 Kings 3:15; 1 Chronicles 25:1). Incense represents the prayers of the saints. Therefore, taken together, the four living creatures and twenty-four elders hold in their hands all that prophets ever prophesied and believers ever prayed for—all about to come to pass.
(Not to veer too far off the plate, but incense is used by the occult because it’s a direct mockery of GOD’S utensils within the Holy Heavens. This is the case with MANY things of GOD. Satan twists!)
A lamassu-sometimes called a protective deity, often depicted as having a human’s head, a body of an ox or a lion, and bird’s wings.
The bloodlines of the fallen angels (Genesis 6) are named in The Bible. The lamassus is a word derived from the Akkadians…a Nephilim bloodline!
Lamassu do not generally appear as large figures in the low-relief schemes running round palace rooms, where winged genie figures are common, but they sometimes appear within narrative reliefs, apparently protecting the Assyrians.
Winged genies are usually bearded male figures sporting birds’ wings. The Genii are a reappearing trait in ancient Assyrian art, and are displayed most prominently in palaces or places of royalty.
Royalty? The blue-bloods? Blue? Fallen angels! Bloodlines of the fallen angels and Nephilim.
Once you digest all this info…the strange creatures of the past begin to make sense!
This also addresses the mixing of creatures to create hybrids! Satan has taught the fallen angels to manipulate DNA…genetic modification. Not only did he teach them, but now they teach mankind! We see this in MANY avenues in this world!
Creating false idols is a main factor within this agenda too!
OK! I think that’s enough of that…does it make sense now?
You must remember to keep your eyes on the prize! Satan loves to cause chaos!
The Great Commission is similar to the episodes of the commissioning of the Twelve Apostles found in the other Synoptic Gospels, though with significant differences. Luke also has Jesus dispatching disciples during his ministry, sending them to all the nations and giving them power over demons, including the Seventy disciples.
Did you see the word—church? Or building? Spreading The Word of GOD has nothing to do with buildings and churches. It’s about spreading the Truth.
Many techniques and doctrines of the occult, paganism, etc…has found its way into this commission. This is why you must always WEAR your Armor of GOD!
A disciple is literally one that is disciplined or taught about the Kingdom of GOD and these disciples are to make disciples or students of other people once they have put their trust in Christ. No believer is supposed to be an underground or private believer. Christianity is not a covert operation!
We must remember that the world is turning against Believer’s. This is causing the same effect that took place when Jesus Christ walked the Earth. An underground church! You see, the whole agenda of the elite is to bring forth sin, and bury The Word.
Nope! Sadly, so many people are PEW POTATOES!
To not share the gospel is to be negligent to our duties. Only a SMALL portion of Believer’s actively shares the FAITH with the lost.
People think it’s a preacher’s job!
That is why for most Christians it’s called the “great omission.” There are sins of commission and sins of omission and I believe not being involved with the Great Commission is a sin of omission.
The Great Commission will NOT end until the consummation of the Kingdom of Heaven.
Let me leave you with a true story that is a great analogy as to why we need to be participating in the Great Commission.
A number of years ago a man was walking his dog about 5:30 in the morning when he spotted smoke coming out of a two-story house. When he looked around he saw that there was no chimney for a fireplace and so he thought the occupants may be endangered. He went up to the porch and peeked into the living room window and saw smoke coming out of the kitchen area. This is when he knew that there was a fire and he started pounding on the door. He rang the door bell furiously but got no response. Then he started pounding so hard on the front door that he thought it might break it down and the neighborhood dogs started barking and the lights started coming on in the neighborhood. Finally, a light went on in the second floor of the house and when a man came down to the living room only then did he realize that there smoke coming out of the kitchen. This was long before smoke detectors were commonly used. The man then ran upstairs to evacuate his family. The family escaped with what could have been a disastrous fire.
Here is the analogy. There is a fire coming. The man who was walking his dog didn’t think, “Well, I don’t want to disturb anyone at this hour…and I don’t want to embarrass myself.” No, he was bold and did everything within his power that he could to warn the occupants of the fire. There is another fire coming. Jesus spoke of it more than heaven and in fact, more than just about anything else that He ever taught in the gospel. Hell is very real. Should we not fear for those who don’t yet know about a fire that is coming and be bold enough to take whatever steps are necessary? Who cares if you are embarrassed or you are humiliated? Shouldn’t we care enough to warn the occupants of this coming fire…like our neighbors, our friends, and our family…even strangers? Remember that the power is in the message and not in the messenger. If God can use even a shy, timid, tongue-twisted person like me to go into the streets, door to door, in the stores or anywhere that there are people…then He can use you.
Matthew 10 (KJV)
Mark 8 (KJV)
38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
Luke 12 (KJV)
2 Timothy 2 (KJV)
THE INVISIBLE WAR
This invisible war rages around us, but you must recognize that the veil is thinning! It’s becoming more apparent daily…if you have eyes to see and ears to hear. Battling this war takes finesse! Satan has strategies and you must learn how to counteract these actions.
Call To Arms
Professing Jesus Christ to other Believer’s IS NOT the Great Commission! It’s professing The Word of GOD to the lost…
GO SERVE YOUR KING!
