In another message I mentioned a Biblical revelation concerning why use modern technology to communicate God’s message. Its so important that we “blow the trumpet” properly, so that the entire city may hear the gospel. In this brief piece, I want to talk about one very important kind of message that needs to go out to all people everywhere.
One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty acts.
I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, And on Your wondrous works.
Men shall speak of the might of Your awesome acts, And I will declare Your greatness.
The character of any person is assessed in large measure by WHAT THEY DO. Likewise with GOD – people out there form a view of God based on what they believe He does. If people believe that our does nothing concrete today, they will view our God as a figment of our imagination. Our testimonies provide an up-to-date witness of the Living God to a generation whose minds have been fed with Darwinism, Naturalism, Materialism, Humanism, Islam and New Age Philosophy in various degrees. It is so important then that we TELL the world WHAT Jesus has done for us as believers. This is common sense if we want to effectively glorify Jesus Christ in the world, but it is also part of our biblical mandate to do so. The television provides an ideal platform to testify to many people about the reality of the works of God. If we all shut up and keep it to ourselves in hidden gatherings, why would we expect anyone out there to take our faith seriously?
If Jesus has healed anyone in the last 10 years, people ought to know about it. If people have been delivered from demons, the world needs to know. If hearts have been changed, if families have been restored, if broken lives have been made new, if forgiveness has been found, and reconciliation effected, the world MUST know.
People must know what it is that God can do. God did not retire when the Canon of Scripture was settled on. He IS the Living God. There are hundreds of millions of people that never even heard of the Christian Bible, and have little idea of who Jesus is. These people believe that the reports they hear on TV are mostly true. That is why it is imperative to reach them with testimonies broadcast on television in their local languages. “How can they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?” asks Paul in Romans 10:14. We should be asking the same question today. I hope God is not holding us responsible for the people we are not reaching with credible testimonies of God’s work in the world, but just in case He is, I urge you to do what you can to play your part in this great work.
In the world, successful people know that a very good kind of question to ask is “How do I … ?”
“How do I succeed?” “How can I build wealth?” “How can I solve this kind of problem?” Now Jesus gave us all a very big job. I believe it would be wise to ask him “How can we spread the knowledge of Your glory all over the world?” The answers may be closer than we think.
