A Day of God Prescription
“… as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.” (2 Peter 3:12)
Jesus gave a great discourse on His Second Coming (Matthew 24, 25). In that discourse He proclaimed:“And this gospel … will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24: 14). The prophets and the apostles proclaimed an event that is called the Day of God, or the Day of the Lord. When Peter added his voice to the chorus he gave an awesome description of that Day (2 Peter 3).
Peter also gave a prescription regarding that Day. Peter wrote that it is possible to speed the coming of that Day of God. When you, as a thinking person, ask the question, “How can we speed the coming of that Day?” Jesus gave us the answer when He declared that the gospel must be preached in the whole world as a witness to all the nations and only then the end will come.
That means we can speed the coming of that Day by doing everything we can to get the gospel into the nations of this world. I believe this means that one day the gospel will be taught in a nation somewhere in this world and then God is going to say, “Now I can bring down the curtain. I can have My Day because the gospel has been proclaimed in the whole world as a witness to the nations!”
By helping ministries like the Mini Bible College get the Word of God into people and people into the Word of God, together we can speed the coming of the Day of God!
