Impartial Grace: Mark 16

He said to them, “Go into all the world, and preach the Good News to the whole creation.”

(Mark 16:15, emphasis added)

“Go into all the world.” Gather yourselves and prepare to carry the gospel “into all the world.” Jesus commands the gospel be presented “to the whole creation.” Jesus intends the “whole creation” hear His Gospel. There are many who have died and did not hear the Gospel while alive. Missionaries have worked diligently since the time of Paul’s journeys spreading the Gospel, yet not everyone in Jerusalem heard the gospel. There are remote places on the earth today that have not heard the Word of God or His Gospel. There are some alive today that will die and not hear the Gospel of Christ. Even so, Jesus intends the “whole creation” to hear the Gospel including those who died before hearing it.

“Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus Christ is Lord.” Everyone will know Jesus. Everyone will repent and acknowledge Him. The commandment to “…proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation…” is a Christian work in progress. God is love and He will reconcile all to Himself. This is Impartial Grace.
