Mark 16:15 And He said to them, Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to all the creation. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word by the accompanying signs.
Concerning the Slave-Savior's universal spreading of the gospel through His disciples, 16:20 says, "But those went out and preached everywhere…" This preaching of God's gospel to all the creation (v. 15) by the resurrected and ascended Slave-Savior, as the Slave of God, through His believers, began from Jerusalem and has been proceeding to the uttermost part of the earth (Acts 1:8) continuously and universally for the past centuries. It will continue to proceed until the Slave-Savior comes to set up the kingdom of God on earth (Luke 19:12; Dan. 7:13-14). In 16:15 the Lord said to His disciples, "Go into all the 440 world and preach the gospel to all the creation." Then verse 20 tells us that they went out and preached everywhere. This indicates that we also should go forth to tell the nations, and even all the creation, of the wonderful SlaveSavior, His all-inclusive death, and His marvelous resurrection. We have seen that in chapter one of the Gospel of Mark there was only one preacher of the gospel. But when we come to the end of this Gospel, there are many preachers. Who can say how many gospel preachers there are today? Furthermore, the preaching in chapter one of Mark was mainly to the Jews, but the preaching at the end of chapter sixteen is to all the creation, that is, at least to all the different peoples on earth. Oh, let us tell everyone about the wonderful Lord Jesus! Let us tell all people about the Lord's all-inclusive death and marvelous resurrection! Let us not be silent; let us preach the gospel, present the truth, and minister life. (c) Living Stream Ministry.
