4018 DAYS? Examine the widget-graphic box at the top of this DLTW post for a hint about “enlisting in finishing the task,” confirmation that 4018 days (as of this posting) remain until the presumed GC* deadline, this date in 2033 for that task to be accomplished (or around that time). SEE this page for more details. (* = Gospel Commission)
Yes, that presumed deadline is projected to be 11 years away, but what is 11 years? Truly, a short period of time in many respects. After all, 11 years ago today was this day in 2011, the eleventh year of the current century which is less than 22 years old. 2011 also marked the year that Dee Dee and I set up shop in our retirement village of Trilogy Glen Ivy, Temescal Valley, in the Southern California Inland Empire. We can attest that these last 11 years have come and gone quickly.
But not so quickly is the Gospel Commission
, given by Christ to His followers in A.D. 33 (so 2033 marks the two-thousandth anniversary of the Commission). Related: The Joshua Project (JP) keeps an account of the “unreached” people groups of the world. JP explains their mission as:
is a research initiative seeking to highlight the ethnic people groups of the world with the fewest followers of Christ. Accurate, updated ethnic people group information is critical for understanding and completing the Great Commission
. Revelation 5:9
and Revelation 7:9-10
show that there will be some from every tribe, tongue, nation and people before the Throne.
