Biblical Basis for Missions – Old Testament Subjects

Bible Audio Blog

What do we mean by #missions?  It is simply sharing the #gospel or #goodnews with others.  It could be your immediate #neighbor or someone living far from your home.  But it is all missions.  If missions is about sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, what does the old testament have to do with this activity?  In the same way that you cannot have the new testament without the old, the ground work for missions is laid down in the old testament.  God created the whole world, so doesn’t that mean that the whole world needs His Son?  In Genesis, we see man’s fall.  So doesn’t that mean we all need a Savior?  Do sinners seek God or does God seek them?  As early as Genesis 3:15, we see the plan for reconciling sinful man back to God.  What can we learn about missionaries from Noah, from Abraham, and even the Israelites?

      19860928 How To Cure Snakebite - Rev. Tommy Jones
