From: Go Ye



Go Ye

"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (Mt. 29: 19)

Without the first two words of our text verse, we have nothing; without "go ye" we have no great commission. "Go ye" then, is essential to every Christian; it is not a suggestion, but a command. Our part is to "go", and the Lord's part is to "do" the actual work. We enter into a holy alliance with the Father when we go.

A partnership: We meet God half-way you might say. What a privilege He has bestowed upon us; what trust He has put in us! We work together for the salvation of men, and the glory of God. We become useful to one another.

A fellowship: We also enter into a certain fellowship with the God of gods, the Almighty when we are OBedient to His command to go. We work together, and walk together; we talk to one another, and weep together over souls; we both have the same goal in mind.

A kinship: Then too, there is a certain kinship--a Father-son relationship that "bonds" us with our Lord. We enjoy a closer relationship when we go "together" to win the lost. "He that winneth souls is wise", and so it remains true.

The little word "ye" becomes important in Holy writ; it is more than "you" (which is "thee" or "thou" in a more personal sense); "ye" speaks of a crowd, or group collectively; it is not as personal as "you". "Ye" entails all Christians; it is "all of you" in one short word. "Go Ye" becomes a command to the multitudes, and not merely the individual; it is all inclusive, (not ignoring the individual duty).

All power is given unto Christ, (v. 18) "therefore"--
See what it is there for! Because He is given "all power in heaven and in earth"; because Christ is endued with power, therefore "Go Ye" and He will go with you. We do not go alone into the wilderness of this world.

We are armed with the arm of God; (as well as the armor of God, Eph 6: 13-18)
We are prepared for the work: ("thoroughly furnished" by the Word of God 2Ti 3:17)
We are commissioned by the Lord Himself;

Go and teach; We are to be teachers of Truth--absolute truth; we are bearers of "Good News", and are to teach others of that news. We can not all preach, but we all can teach! The command remains the same--it is for the multitudes.
The necessity of man:
God sent a man to the Ethiopian eunuch;
He sent a man to the Philippian jailer:
He commissioned Paul to "go" to many countries;
He commissioned us to "go" too!
Our Lord works through the instrumentality of men.

The duty of man:
OBedience to the Lord's command is our sole duty to Him. "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." (Eccl. 12:13)

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. (Dan. 12:3)

    • I put "CC" or "subtitles" on the study, on Matthew 24:29-31, "The World-Wide Gathering & Mourning of the Jews" in order to have a printed text to read.  
    • Hope the devotional music by Christian Hymns & Gospel Music is a blessing to all of you.   In Christ, Alan
    • Bro. @John Young, Thank you for your advice as well it is much appreciated. I was nervous taking the pulpit for the first time and knew my delivery and presentation would be lacking. That wasn't my intention but as nervous as I was it wasn't surprising. One thing I struggled with was making a outline clearly defining each point so I just went through the passage of Scripture. I will focus on getting the hearer from thinking "that's some nice information", to thinking, "I need to d
    • Bro. @Alan, Thank you for your input and teaching me how to upload my sermons. God bless!
    • The content of the sermon was really good and put together well. Aside from delivery and presentation, which will improve with practice, its important to remember that a sermon is not just to convey content but also to move the hearer to action of some sort. So with each point in a sermon, the effort needs to be made in getting the hearer from thinking "that's some nice information", to thinking, "I need to do that". For example, after your message, your pastor got up and gave them a call t
    • I thought that the content of the message, the scripture references, the doctrine within the message that you presented, were all fine. Unless I missed something, I could not find any errors. All in all, it was a fine message on Romans 1:16-17. Your comments on Habakkuk 2:4 were real good. The way you presented the doctrine of repentance was noteworthy. I especially appreciated how you mentioned that, after his conversion experience, Paul had, "... the fruit of repentance..."  As far as upl
    • If anyone could tell me how to get the YouTube video to show in the post without having to click a link I would greatly appreciate it.
    • Bro. Jim, Yes, this is me. I guess now everyone will know what I look like. I normally have not, since this time, put any videos of myself up on Online Baptist due to a couple of reasons. Due to the seriousness of some of the doctrinal problems within independent Baptist churches I decided to put up this sermon of myself instead of a written sermon. This in one of the English prophecy messages that I did at our church, Victory Baptist Church, in Hua Lien, Taiwan awhile back. We have an
    • Bro. Alan, is this sermon yours or by someone else? I ask simply because I do not know what you look like and therefore do not know who the speaker is.
    • Thank you for the fine sermon, and illustration, of the doctrine of the preservation of the written word of God. Jeremiah 36:1-32 is an excellent illustration of God preserving His word.
