There have been many great evangelistic serves presented over the history of the church. However, there is going to be one evangelistic push that will defy all reasoning in vastness and scope.
When this greatest of all evangelistic service is presented, there will be so many people saved from every country of the world that it defies the imagination. The numbers of people saved from all countries of the world are so vast that one can not count them.
In Revelation chapter 7, 144000 Jewish evangelists are sealed. Their job is to evangelize the world. They are protected from the anti-christ, and they are still on the earth when Jesus returns.
After they begin their ministry of telling the world about Jesus, John writes this, “After this I looked and behold a great multitude that no one could number from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands…And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb” (Revelation 7:9-14).
These grateful recipients of life begin a praise and worship service to God that is truly amazing. Unbelievable praise and worship offered to God because they have been relieved from the horrific conditions that prevail on earth at this time.
The 144000 super evangelists do their job, and people from all over the world listen and respond to their message. The amazing thing about all this is that the ones who accept the gospel at this time forfeit their physical life. That’s why John sees them in heaven before the throne of God.
I believe the vision John is given in Chapter 7 is that near or at the end of the tribulation. These super evangelists preach during the entire seven year period of tribulation, and the vast numbers would indicate that people were being saved up until the last minute.
Although Billy Sunday and Billy Graham were magnificent evangelists, their works dim in comparison to the works of these super powered evangelists. Where did they come from? Jesus chose them from the twelve tribes of Israel. He took 12,000 from each tribe.
They did have to meet certain requirements. They had to be virgins, never having been with a woman, and they could never have told a lie. God would be hard pressed to find this many evangelists from mankind today, would he not? In this day when sex is as easy as a phone call, not many men would fit the above criteria. Not to worry, God has it all worked out. He will find the evangelists and send them on their mission to save as many people as can be saved out of the great tribulation.
No, you haven’t seen the greatest evangelistic service ever presented just yet. However, it is coming. It may not be too long in arriving. I can’t wait to watch all these events unfold from my vantage point in heaven. Hang in there because we will see these events soon enough.
