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 #3 I am overwhelmed with tear-filled excitement that David Platt is the new President of the IMB:
None of them know of or have access to Jesus.
Almost all of them are Muslim.
Hell is trembling right now because the light is coming to this dark area of the world.
“Pray that churches and missions organizations will accept the challenge of adopting and reaching the Turks. Pray that God will grant wisdom and favor to missions agencies focusing on the Turks. Pray that many Turks living abroad will be reached with the Gospel and will take it back to Turkey.”
