four forms of the gospel (revelation 14:6-7)
This message was preached at New Testament Christian Fellowship on March 26, 2017. With the declaration of the "Everlasting Gospel" in Revelation 14:6-7, explication is necessary concerning the four forms of the Gospel message found in the New Testament, the everlasting Gospel being one of those forms--NOT four gospels, but four forms of the Gospel in terms of emphasis, much like the four Gospels concerning the life of Christ. This message introduces the four forms--the Gospel of the Kingdom (Matthew 24:14), the Gospel of the Grace of God (Acts 20:24), what Paul calls "My Gospel" (Romans 2:16), and the Everlasting Gospel (Revelation 14:6-7). This general overview is then followed by a detailed look at the Gospel of the Kingdom, the good news that God purposes to set up a literal kingdom on this earth over which a son of David, Jesus the Messiah, shall reign from a literal throne in Jerusalem over the earth restored to its Edenic state.
