Everybody. Somebody. Nobody. Anybody. You!

For Adventists, nearly everybody is expecting Jesus to return soon. If you were to ask somebody who is a Christian from a different church, they would also probably tell you that they think Christ is about to come back. Even among those who are not Christian, hardly anybody doubts that things are different in this our day. Almost nobody thinks that things can continue the way they are going now, but they just do not know what to do.

Why does everybody think this way? For the Christian, it is because most of the signs given in the Bible that express the nearness of the coming of the Savior are being fulfilled before our very eyes (see Matthew 24 and Luke 22). Wars. Rumors of wars. Plagues. Famines. Pestilences. False prophets. Anybody can see that, despite the technological marvels of the 20th and 21st centuries, there is a spiritual declension in society and in the church.

While it may be true that most of the signs that precede the coming of the Savior have been happening in our lifetime, and most everybody’s hearts are failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth (Luke 21:24), there is one thing that has yet to be fulfilled:

“This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14).

Somebody is probably saying, “I thought just about everybody had already heard about Jesus.”  Nobody should say that because it is just not true. Out of the more than eight billion people on the planet, more than three billion have not had an opportunity to learn of the Savior.

Jesus does not want anybody to perish (II Peter 3:9). So why hasn’t everybody heard already? Probably because everybody thought somebody would go and share the gospel, but because most thought that anybody else would do it, nobody did.

Here is where you and I can make a difference. We do not need to wait for somebody else to go. Sadly, we know that not everybody who is called will follow through and go. But you can. I can. We cannot reach everybody, but we can tell somebody that anybody can be saved.

We want to encourage you to go and embody Jesus Christ, telling everybody that Somebody — Jesus Christ — will love, forgive, heal and save anybody who chooses to follow Him. Please contact us so we can help you. As we respond and go to tell everybody, we can honestly say that Jesus will indeed come soon!
