The Command to Preach The Good News

Christian's have a message they have heard from the beginning of their faith in God, which is the summation of the happy Good News that they are to share with others, just as we were commanded by Christ to love one another, and also commandment to preach the message we heard from the beginning to others.

Mark 16:15 He said to them, "Go into all the world, and preach the Good News to the whole creation.

What is that message we heard from the beginning? Do you have a clear accurate idea what that message was, and/or is? Was it from our religion, or from the Spirit of God?

Revelation 14:6 I saw an angel flying in mid heaven, having an eternal Good News to proclaim to those who dwell on the earth, and to every nation, tribe, language, and people.

Now we have created a measure of confusion and fear in that perhaps we don't know that message from the beginning?. Furthermore, are we looking for just something to preach so we are doing at least something in the name of Christ from our bibles? Is the message fearful that we heard from the beginning of our faith, or perhaps, we never got that message so we really don't know the Good News that we are to preach?

Matt.7:22 Many will tell me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, didn't we prophesy in your name, in your name cast out demons, and in your name do many mighty works?' 7:23 Then I will tell them, 'I never knew you. Depart from me, you who work iniquity.'

Sadly, this is where most Christian's are found today, if a religion does not give them a message they don't have one, they repeat words in perfunctory manner saying those words which was told them by a religious institution to anyone that comes along to justify they are doing the preaching of the Good News. If they lose the religion, and/or were kicked out of their religion, in this case using the Watch Tower Society for an example, and/or left it, because they found its not the truth. They find they have no message to preach any longer.

This is baffling to so many, and is used by members to boast without that without WTS teaching one leaving have no message of God any longer.

Romans 10:8 But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth, and in your heart;"{Deuteronomy 30:14} that is, the word of faith, which we preach:

Good News Truth and Spirit or Flesh?

There is a clear message for those anointed by God's Spirit to tell other about, it is the same message they got from the beginning of their new birth, let see if we can find that message?

1 John 3:11 For this is the message which you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another;

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God.

Who wants to preach that we should love one another? Certainly not religion that so often kills one another, and perhaps not even us, because most of us don't love one another. So we need a doctrine to preach to take the heat of the light off us?

John 11:10 But if a man walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light isn't in him."

John 3:21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his works may be revealed, that they have been done in God."

If we don't know God, then love is not the message we want to preach, true? Love is the hardest message to preach nothing reproves us greater than seeing our own lack of love. But preaching is something we can do as a” job”, as a commandment to prove we have love. However, if we remove the religion which beats the drum of our flesh to preach making us feel guilty, so goes our preaching. Remove the argument in the flesh of who is more enlighten so goes the Good News preaching work.

1Cor.3:21 Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, 3:22 whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come. All are yours,
3:23 and you are Christ's, and Christ is God's.

1 Thessalonians 2:4 But even as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the Good News, so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, who tests our hearts.

The Message

Ephesians 1:13 in whom you also, having heard the word of the truth, the Good News of your salvation,--in whom, having also believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.

First, the message is not about us, or our personality, nor our wonderful religion, it is about God's love for fallen mankind, God's love that compels us to love each others. What it not about is our trying hypocritically to prove we are love, by preaching, we are not! God is love that is the message it was not that we are love, or our religion.

1 Corinthians 1:17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the Good News--not in wisdom of words, so that the cross of Christ wouldn't be made void.

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the Good News of Christ, for it is the power of God for salvation for everyone who believes; for the Jew first, and also for the Greek.

The message we got from the Spirit when anointed by God was love that his love filled our hearts with the Spirit fruit of love.
Nothing in our message is about us how good we are, what we've accomplished in studying the scriptures, or anything else it is about the glory of God and how we want to lead other to God's love, so they might come to know the truth of God, Christ Jesus. It is that experience that teaches the student by Spirit and truth by God own direction, and not ours.

1 Peter 1:8 whom not having known you love; in whom, though now you don't see him, yet believing, you rejoice greatly with joy unspeakable and full of glory--

Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unrighteous, so as to forget your work and the labor of love which you showed toward his name, in that you served the saints, and still do serve them.

Hebrews 10:24 Let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good works.

2 Timothy 1:13 Hold the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

1 Timothy 1:14 The grace of our Lord abounded exceedingly with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

What its not about is a forced obligation so we can feel justify in our flesh because of lack of love for other so preach instead to gain merit to bring on God's judgment day. That is not the message anyone anointed of God got from the beginning of their new birth.

Titus.3:3 For we were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
3:4 But when the kindness of God our Savior and his love toward mankind appeared, 3:5 not by works of righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy, he saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,
3:6 whom he poured out on us richly, through Jesus Christ our Savior; 3:7 that, being justified by his grace, we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

They got the message from the Spirit they had been freely forgiven, that their life was now Christ life, and God would feed and cherish the body of Christ as a husband would his own flesh, just as human do for those they love and are married to.

Those seeking and signing true righteousness, were given the love of God, which profoundly change their lives and thinking, so the love Christ Jesus, than they find themselves in the truth, Christ. What it was not about was a debate over doctrine, to beat the flesh into defeat and submission , and into admitting its wrong and then accept our religious doctrine as truth.

Act.2:4 They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other languages, as the Spirit gave them the ability to speak.

To preach, for the sake of preaching is the equivalent of preaching to the weeds in the field of God's planting hoping we can change weeds into a new species of wheat because of our message. In other words, if we don't have the message and we preach just to preaching because we have too isn't that a falsehood? How the
can someone come to the truth, Christ Jesus, by hearing a lie?

Romans 14:17 for the Kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 4:20 For the Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.

Why do we preach?

If someone loves us despite ourselves do we have to go and get a canned speech to express how much we appreciate them, and how their love affect our life. Does are message have to be critic by attorneys to make sure we are doing it legally correct?

Do you feel God's love you, has he always help you when everyone else left you? Has God been faithful in his love for you at your lowest moment in this life. Has God freed you from the yoke of false religion?

Rom.8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Could oppression, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 8:36 Even as it is written, "For your sake we are killed all day long. We were accounted as sheep for the slaughter."{Psalm 44:22} 8:37 No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
8:39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

In other words, aren't we a living message inscribed on our heart by God's own love working in us daily by his Son Christ Jesus headship? Is that message not enough? Is that not the message we heard from the beginning? Is that not a Spirit and truth message and Good News?

2Cor. 3:1 Are we beginning again to commend ourselves? Or do we need, as do some, letters of commendation to you or from you?
3:2 You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; 3:3 being revealed that you are a letter of Christ, served by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone, but in tablets that are hearts of flesh.
3:4 Such confidence we have through Christ toward God;
3:5 not that we are sufficient of ourselves, to account anything as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God; 3:6 who also made us sufficient as servants of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

The message of the flesh is not God's love, it not about works of law, or what we have done in labors to prove we are God's people, or the judgment of God how such fear changed our lives making us believe for fear of punishment. The message of the flesh from the beginning is judgment, fear, punishment, conformity, commandments making the flesh obey, not love, not that: “my yoke is kindly, I am mild temper come to me the truth and I will free you from the judgment of your unrighteous flesh”.

Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death.

What do we owe God, is it preaching a message because we have to to prove we love him? What does God owe us? If we can answer that simple question, then we are set free to experience the wonderful light, if not we have no message that is of God, and nobody can train us to have a message for God, unless it is from our own hearts appreciation for what God owes us!

Rom.13:8 Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Now has God permitted us to mature into the fullness of Christ, if so we can't preach distrust, we cannot preach how God will leave us if we are not perfect enough in our flesh, in works of law. We cannot preach ourselves, now can we?

Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work.

Truth is love, love is truth why would we have a phony message thinking it what God is? It because we honestly don't have a relationship with God, we have a relationship with ideas, with a religion, but not with love, the truth of love working in us that is the light that can never go out, the oil, the place true knowledge bring us to defend our best friend to speak of is his loyal loving ways is not as an ideology, a perfunctory debate about God as a notion on paper, but by as a living testimony of God's own life in us written into the new life given us freely by God's own love.

So many don't have that message, they have a message an obligation to do something. Perhaps, they are not yet compelled by God's love to speak for him, is that a sin? No! Now take a breathe, don't panic what does God owe us? What do we owe God? We cannot make God love us by something we do to earn his love. God loves us, because he is love, we love God, because he first loved us. We express that message because we love God, and we have moved beyond the primary doctrine of repentance from dead works which are never ending for those not experiencing God's love.

A mountain is a mountain we don't change the mountain because of our feelings, our message, we accept its a mountain. Do we accept God is love, he is not a condition of love, no! God is love, he does not act like us that are not love. We believe God is love, because he has given us his love by the Spirit so we can know the truth that God is love.

If we believe God is love by the Spirit indwelling us, then the message is there. God will by the same love lead us, direct us to people that need his love in their life. That is called listening to the Spirit God's unfailing direction that never mislead us. But if we listen to the flesh that must preach, in fact, cannot stop preaching it will just blast everyone annoying everyone just as it does to our own flesh when people are preaching to prove they are God's people.

2 Corinthians 4:5 For we don't preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake;

Romans 10:8 But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth, and in your heart;"{Deuteronomy 30:14} that is, the word of faith, which we preach:

Romans 10:15 And how will they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Good News of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!"{Isaiah 52:7}
