9 And they sang a new song, saying,
“Worthy are you to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation,
10 and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God,
and they shall reign on the earth.”
I am convinced the election of David Platt as President of the IMB is causing hell to be scared to death. Not because David Platt has some sort of supernatural “Jesus powers” or anything. But simply because God has anointed Him to – literally – do whatever it takes to get the Gospel to the unreached. David Platt will NOT stop until the unreached have a chance to hear and respond to the Gospel. I have ZERO doubt in my mind that he will lead followers of Jesus to this end . . . or die trying.
He knows and believes what the Word promises: this thing cannot fail.
So, reason #2 I am overwhelmed with tear-filled excitement that David Platt is the new President of the IMB:
There are currently 6,820 of them.
Less one half of one percent of them know anything about Jesus.
“They believe there are many supernatural forces including spirits of the forest, the water, the mist, and the house. Old customs require that a dead person be buried with their money. In each family, only the soul of the father, which will turn into the spirit of the house after his death, is worshipped.”
Hell is trembling right now because the light is coming to this dark area of the world.
“Pray for the very few followers of Jesus among the Laha people, that they will fellowship together, and be instructed by the Spirit of the Lord. Pray they will be given a heart to share their belief in Christ with family and friends.”
