The Eternal Gospel
... an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth ... Revelation 14:6
"The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth ... we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone ... now he commands all people everywhere to repent. For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice ..." Acts 17:24-31 — Words Paul spoke to the pagan Greek philosophers
The book of Revelation mentions a gospel that is often overlooked. It is not the familiar gospel of salvation, where, in unmerited grace, a person is offered the forgiveness of sins through faith in the sacrificial death of Christ upon the cross. The gospel in Revelation 14 is called the eternal or everlasting gospel, because it summons humankind to worship the Creator and to fear Him because He is the Supreme Judge of the world.
It is an eternal gospel, because the evidence for an infinitely powerful Creator can be seen from the existence and design of the universe that has testified to everyone since the beginning of time. It is a gospel that pre-dates the Savior’s death upon the cross and applies to everyone, even those who have never heard the gospel of salvation. . Without the knowledge of Christ, the human race has either honored the Creator as supreme or honored something else as supreme, which is idolatry.
