There are now 7.5 billion people in the world and five billion mobile phones. I will get to this a bit further down. Please keep reading.
When I was a young child growing up in a Christian home and church, I always wondered how the Gospel could be proclaimed to all nations prior to Jesus’s return as Jesus declared in Mathew 24:11-14. Church, Missionaries, Christian radio, and Christian television alone couldn't do it. These were the only means available when I was growing up in a pre-Internet society.
Now with the Internet and mobile technology, millions of people are learning the Gospel of the Kingdom each day. Many are in nations where there is no freedom to worship God, read the Bible, or attend a church. They are receiving the Gospel through technology. My wife, Becky, and I founded LovingGodFellowship.org (LGF) in 2005 for such a cause. LGF is utilizing technology and social media to reach thousands of people per day in countries around this world with the Gospel of the Kingdom in their own language (translated into 103 languages). We are thankful for all those who partner with us to make this vital ministry possible.
Back to what I shared with you in the first sentence. In countries around the world, five billion people carry a mobile phone connected to the Internet and social media. It was not like that when I was a child growing up in church, pondering how billions could be reached. I truly believe that this generation will be the generation that reaches the nations with the Gospel of the Kingdom. It is happening through technology.
Every $100 donated enables us to reach an additional 700 people around the world each day with the love of God and the Gospel of the Kingdom. We operate the ministry debt free, relying solely on charitable contributions, given online or through U.S. mail, to sustain our worldwide ministry to hundreds of thousands per day. LGF is not funded or endowed by any group or denomination.
I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. — Jesus
So if you ignore the least commandment and teach others to do the same, you will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But anyone who obeys God's laws and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.
But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have died. For since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead has also come through a human being; for as all die in Adam, so all will be made alive in Christ.
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow - not even the powers of hell can separate us from God's love (NLT).
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (ESV).
Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (ESV). — Jesus
