- THE MASTERS LAST WORD.
People from different culture believe that last words are very important and they usually take it serious. They believe that those words are what the person has in his mind to do, but for one reason or the other he couldn’t carry it out, so he is saying it out so that the people round will carry it out for him, that is .he is shifting the responsibility to the children, friends or family to carry it out.
We saw king David giving order to Solomon concerning shimei in 1 king chapter 2 vs 8 and 9 that is head should go down to the grave with blood because of what he did to David the king. And Solomon make sure that he carried it out as he was ordered.
Now before Jesus ascended to heaven he gave a command to his few followers. What was the command.
Go ye therefore and teach all nations,baptising them in the name of the father, son and the Holy Ghost. ( Matt 28:19). This was Matthew’s account.
Marks account goes like this. Go into the world and preach the gospel to all creation( Mk 16:15). Why did he gave this command to his followers. When Jesus was around he saw that the people are like sheep without a Shepherd, they all scattered around doing what they feel and think it was right(Matt 9:36 paraphrase). This is what he saw as against what it suppose to be. It suppose to be that every tongues, tribes are worshipping before the throne( Rev.9:7 paraphrase). This is what brought him to earth, and to make it what it suppose to be. In order to bring normalcy he decided to select few folks that he can invest into, so that they will carry the gospel torch around the world. So at the time of his final departure he gave them his last word which turn out to be the great commission. So that they can continue the work until every tribe will be present at the at the throne last day. The question is how do you take his last word of your master.? Will you allow the gospel torch to die in your hand at this time? What effort are you putting into seeing all tribe at the throne worshipping God? Are you willing to join the chariot of people carrying the gospel torch around the world to make a change. Will you join the chariot of people that make heaven to rejoice ?. The choice is yours
God bless you.
