A Solemn Charge

(Bible Lessons, Vol 17 No. 4, 1985)

Leslie C. Busbee

From Peter and Paul, and James we have the prophecies concerning Jesus coming again. The days are hastening on their way toward that great and final day when these things will be fulfilled….Let us be assured that He will keep His promise and come again just like it has been foretold. It may be nearer than we might think. “When they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them.” The pulse of the world today is the striving for peace and safety. It matters not how secure man makes himself in this present evil world, and how prosperous they become in the material things of life; it will all be dashed from them in a moment. The world will be destroyed at Christ’s coming. There will be no intervening rapture and tribulation to give people another chance to be prepared to meet Him. When Jesus comes, the dead will be resurrected, both saint and sinner, both evil and good, both just and unjust. It will all take place at the same time. He will come to take vengeance on them that know not God, and to be glorified in His saints. There will be no interlude of a thousand years between the resurrection of the righteous and the wicked. If we are going to be ready and accepted of Him, we will have to be in that condition when He comes. All grudging, malice, strife, and bitterness must be out of our hearts. It will mean so much for us to be accounted worthy to stand before the Son of Man in that day.Read more

A Companion for the Journey

Over the last five years, the Gospel Truth has been a tremendous blessing in the furtherance of the gospel among Tamil-speaking people throughout India and the broader Asia-Pacific region. The Gospel Truth provided a means of reaching far more souls than we could possibly have reached during a mission trip, and is a more innocuous and year-round messenger of the gospel in a region largely hostile to Christianity. Thus began the Tamil publishing work: starting first with five hundred copies and then steadily growing to one thousand, two thousand, and now thirty-five hundred copies, as letters and phone calls began to come in from others who had obtained a copy or heard of the Gospel Truth. Since that time, around seventy-five thousand Tamil copies have been sent out. I have witnessed the fruit of gospel seeds planted through these papers on the mission field and am thankful to know the Lord is able to work with these seeds year-round, whether we can be there in person or not. The digital archives have also been a helpful reference in teaching Bible doctrine on a wide range of subjects that arise while I am on the mission field. I highly encourage you to enroll in your own personal study of Bible doctrine, that you may be “ready always to give…a reason on the hope that is in you” (1 Peter 3:15), and believe you’ll find the Gospel Truth to be a very helpful companion in that journey.

Behind the Scenes

The Gospel Truth Publishing Team

A special thanks for the sacrifice and many years of service of the Gospel Truth publishing team. There is nothing like reading the gospel message in one’s own tongue!  The website archives represent years of labor by dedicated workers. After the English edition is published, our translators and printers go to work preparing the new edition for distribution around the world. Local print shops have been set up in different countries and thousands of issues are printed and distributed at meetings and gospel outreach efforts globally. We have regular requests for new languages to be added but are limited by time, funds, and workers.
We thank God for our faithful laborers!
