Let me tell you what I believe the need of the hour is. Maybe I should call it the answer to the need of the hour. I believe it is an army of soldiers, dedicated to Jesus Christ, who believes not only that He is God but that He can fulfill every promise He has ever made and that there isn’t anything too hard for Him. It is the only way we can accomplish the thing that is on His heart—getting the gospel to every creature. …
When Jesus Christ sent the eleven out, He let a situation exist which was so bad that there could never be a worse one. No printing presses, no automobiles, no radios, no televisions, no telephones, no buildings, not one single church, no uniforms, nothing for the vestry. He didn’t even leave them a little emblem.
He left them only a job to do, but with it He said,
“All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore …”
What does the “therefore” mean? It means, “I have the power to give you the order, and I have the power to back you to the hilt.” He has all power in heaven and earth. … Earlier Jesus Christ had said to the same little group, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth in me … the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do” (John 14:12). …
What is the need of the hour? I’ll tell you the need of the hour. It is to believe that our God controls the universe, and when He said, “The earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14), He meant it. That is exactly what is going to happen. The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord!
Blessed is he who comes, the king in God’s name! All’s well in heaven! Glory in the high places!
–Luke 19:37-38, The Message
