When we study the Bible, we find that the global Church is rooted in eternity. In the book of Revelation, we are given a glimpse of the intercultural dynamics of the Church from the visions of John the Apostle. John 7:9-10 says, “After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all the tribes, peoples, and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; and they cried out with a loud voice, saying “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb (ESV).”
These verses show the result of Acts 1:8. It states that, “…you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and as far as the remotest part of the earth.”
Our missional presence in the world is biblical based in the words of Jesus and the acts of the apostles. Then, it is seen being fulfilled through the present global church as an ongoing reality and at the end of time. A correct view of being a part of God’s family needs to be connected to our brothers and sisters from around the world. We are one body, made of many parts.
How do you connect your church to the Global Church?
In the 2020s, the Pentecostal Church of God degreed a decade of harvest. I encourage you to look at the countries that we are currently reaching, and the ones that we plan on reaching within the next 10 years. Pray and ask God for open doors and for an increase of workers on the harvest field.
