A Testimony To All Nations

"And this Gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come." (Matthew 24:14 RSV) (see Prophecy)

Today, the world consists of about 175 countries with a total human population of over 6 billion people. The bar graph below shows the relative size of the populations of the 20 largest countries. Approximately 21% (1/5th) of humanity lives in China, 17% (1/6th) lives in India, and 4% (1/25th) lives in the United States. And yet, Jesus Christ plainly said that the Gospel message will be preached to them all before His Return.

Who Will Deliver The Testimony To All Nations?

To put it mildly, the end-time Gospel message is not going to be welcomed by all the world, but all the world will hear it, from the two greatest prophets that will ever have lived - God's two witnesses.

"And I will grant My two witnesses power to prophesy for one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth." These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands which stand before The Lord of the earth. And if any one would harm them, fire pours out from their mouth and consumes their foes; if any one would harm them, thus he is doomed to be killed. They have power to shut the sky, that no rain may fall during the days of their prophesying, and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, as often as they desire."

"And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends from the bottomless pit will make war upon them and conquer them and kill them, and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which is allegorically called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was crucified. For three days and a half men from the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations gaze at their dead bodies and refuse to let them be placed in a tomb, and those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and make merry and exchange presents, because these two prophets had been a torment to those who dwell on the earth."

"But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood up on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up hither!" And in the sight of their foes they went up to heaven in a cloud." (Revelation 11:3-12 RSV)
