“And I say to you, anyone who acknowledges Me before men, the Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the angels of God, Luke 12: 8 (HCSB)
In Luke 12, Jesus is preparing His disciples for the work that they will do. They will speak of God, Jesus Christ, their slain Lamb, Lord and Saviour. Basically this is the good news of the gospel.
Luke 12: 8 reminds me of Matthew 24:14 which says;
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. NIV
The end that is spoken of here is the end of this sinful kingdom that has been established by the enemies of God which includes those that don’t obey God.
If you obey God you will exist in the kingdom that is soon to come and gain eternal life, otherwise you will cease to exist.
I am so happy to see people responding to God, the Holy Spirit and baptisms of the Holy Spirit and the initial showers of the Latter Rain. May you and I acknowledge the name of Jesus Christ to others with both words and behaviour.
Preparing for the soon return of Jesus Christ, praise our Lord,
