All Nations: Matthew 24:14
“14) 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
Jesus now presents the sign of the gospel being preached to the whole world. Again, as we look at the past generation, this sign has been fulfilled through the modern missions movement. The gospel has been preached to every nation.
In fact, when modern Christian television, radio and social media are added to the equation, the Word of God is often broadcast world wide within every 24 hour time period. It might be argued that the gospel is available in every nation every hour of the day, every day of the week all year long.
Some look at every nation, language and tribal group hearing the gospel. This goal is also close to being reached. We are nearing the goal of having key portions of the Bible translated into nearly every language. Certainly, the goal of every major language group has been reached.
When all of these signs are added together, the trumpet signaling the return of Jesus could sound at any time. We are at the door of the imminent return of Christ. No previous generation could make these claims.
I believe the birth pangs are complete. The clock is about the strike midnight. Everything Jesus said in Matthew 24:4-14 has been fulfilled. The return of Christ could happen at any time.
