Everlasting Gospel

I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people. Revelation 14:6
Ellen White counseled her sons Henry, Edson and Willie saying, “Watch and pray, lest you be overcome by the enemy. Make persevering efforts for everlasting life..– {An Appeal to the Youth} ” that was a sound advise that stand true today. There is no other gospel with the element of timelessness, only the gospel of Jesus Christ promises the timelessness rewards for those who will accept it. It is an Everlasting gospel because it will not cease to be good news, it will remain in the lips of the saved and the angels and the hosts of heaven. Everlasting gospel is crowned with everlasting rewards; crown of life -James 1:12, Everlasting life – John 3:16; Galatians 6:8

The everlasting Gospel is the message from King of Kings whose kingdom is everlasting. Daniel 4:3 “How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.” God has disclosed the reward of accepting His kingdom over that of the devil, the good news will be communicated to all for their eternal reward. That everlasting life is only found in Christ Jesus who is eternal in nature and has powers and dominion that has no end. 

‘Another angel’ is another attempt to reach out with more appeal and warnings of the coming destruction. Remember, non should perish but have eternal life – is the mission of Heaven. The three angels’ messages of Revelation 14 is not God’s first attempt to reach out to the inhabitants of the earth for their salvation. God has not given up on man and the salvation of mankind will He pursue till the very end. God is deeply engaged in the mission of saving man from the eternal death and onto eternal life.

Many great things are part of the everlasting life. Once that reward is obtained then many other rewards are part of it. After all, our good God has nothing less to offer but goodness in its fullness. We are told of joy, happiness, peace and love are among the goodies in the package of his goodness. David says the following as his consolation; “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” Psalms 27:13-14 [KJV]

“The themes of redemption will employ the hearts and minds and tongues of the redeemed through the everlasting ages. They will understand the truths which Christ longed to open to His disciples, but which they did not have faith to grasp. Forever and forever new views of the perfection and glory of Christ will appear. Through endless ages will the faithful Householder bring forth from His treasure things new and old.” – Christ’s Object Lessons p.134

Eternity with God is the place to be. We should not be frustrated with those we do not understand or know, we shall have eternity to learn of them. It is not about how much we know of God and his love, or his redemption plan, or his love and many others, but it is about accepting what he has for us and trust him to see us through.
