WE ARE TURNING THIS AFTERNOON TO RE-EVALUATE WHAT IS MEANT BY THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL. If you will turn to the book of Revelation, you will find that this is the only time this has been used as such and this is in the 6th verse of the 14th chapter of the book of Revelation, when John said, ‘I saw the Angel flying in the midst of the heavens having the Everlasting Gospel to preach to them that dwell on earth, to every nation and kindred and tongue and people.’
Now, we know what the Gospel means. We know that it is ‘glad tidings of great joy.’ We know that the word ‘gospel’ is not a message of fear, but a message of Light and Truth. We know that the Everlasting Gospel is a Gospel that is a continuous Gospel and it runs from generation to generation. We know that it is a gospel of Divine intent and a Divine purpose. And we have it continued into another passage which is also Everlasting. I would have you go back into the book of Genesis. And in the 17th chapter of Genesis, we read these words: ’As God speaks to Abraham, He says, ‘I will call you no more Abram, but your name shall be Abraham ‘father of many nations have I made thee.’ I shall make nations of thee and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish MY Covenant between thee and ME, and thy seed after thee in their generations, for an Everlasting Covenant, that I will be a God unto thee and to thy seed after thee.’
There are no conditions on this. It is an unconditional Covenant, an Everlasting Covenant, and an indestructible Covenant. And a Covenant which is made with your race. This is a covenant made with the House of God in the earth and with the seed of Abraham.
