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 #5 I am overwhelmed with tear-filled excitement that David Platt is the new President of the IMB:
There are nearly 78 million of them.
Currently there are ZERO known followers of Jesus among them.
They are 100% Muslim.
To quote David Platt, “When will this become intolerable to us?”
Hell is trembling right now because the light is coming to this dark area of the world.
“Pray that this largest group of Nepali Muslims will find the truth of Jesus! There is a lot of potential for gospel growth within the Shaikh community because of relatively few social divisions.”
