MANY NAMES OF THE GOSPEL
The word “gospel,”
which means “good news,” is never mentioned in the Old Testament. It is
mentioned in the New Testament approximately 101 times. It is mentioned
in the Revelation once. The first place the word gospel is used is in
Mt 4:23. It is called the Gospel of the kingdom. There are many
There is the GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM-ref Mt 4:23; 9:35; 24:14; Mk 1:14. This is the Christ-centered Gospel (or message of the millennial kingdom) in which Jesus Christ shall set up His kingdom and reign. This was preached when Jesus came the first time. The message was rejected. Jesus was crucified. However, this message will again be preached during the Tribulation to all nations, AND THEN SHALL THE END COME-Mt 24:14. It can be expected that this Gospel will be preached both by the 144,000 Jews and the two witnesses.
THE EVERLASTING (or eternal) GOSPEL-Rev 14:6. This is the Christ-centered Gospel (or message) that is also proclaimed during the Tribulation. It is written, Rev 14:6,7-AND I SAW ANOTHER ANGEL FLY IN THE MIDST OF HEAVEN, HAVING THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL TO PREACH UNTO THEM THAT DWELL ON THE EARTH, AND TO EVERY NATION, AND KINDRED, AND TONGUE, AND PEOPLE, SAYING WITH A LOUD VOICE, FEAR GOD, AND GIVE GLORY TO HIM; FOR THE HOUR OF HIS JUDGMENT IS COME: AND WORSHIP HIM THAT MADE HEAVEN, AND EARTH, AND THE SEA, AND THE FOUNTAINS OF WATERS.
THE GOSPEL OF THE CIRCUMCISION-Gal 2:7,8. This is the Christ-centered Gospel sent to the circumcised (or Jews). It is written, BUT CONTRARIWISE, WHEN THEY SAW THAT THE GOSPEL OF THE UNCIRCUMCISION WAS COMMITTED UNTO ME, AS THE GOSPEL OF THE CIRCUMCISION WAS UNTO PETER; (FOR HE THAT WROUGHT EFFECTUALLY IN PETER TO THE APOSTLESHIP OF THE CIRCUMCISION, THE SAME WAS MIGHTY IN ME TOWARD THE GENTILES:).
THE GOSPEL OF THE UNCIRCUMCISION-Gal 2:7. This is the Christ-centered Gospel sent to the uncircumcised (or Gentiles).
