The future is ours. As Christians, we alone have the hope of the resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:12-58). We alone have the hope that when we pass from this world before the resurrection we will be face to face with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:8). And we alone have the assurance that the future in time is ours, “…whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future. Everything belongs to you, and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.” (1 Corinthians 3:22, 23) Jesus taught us to pray, “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10) This is a multigenerational task.
The Christian civilization of Mexico. Is this possible? What will it look like? Should this be the thrust of our missionary effort? How do we do this? These are questions we hope to answer over the course of time in a series of articles about our work in Mexico. Our answer to the questions is this possible and should we be doing this is an emphatic yes. The question is not if but when.
A people crying out for peace and salvation. Mexico is in trouble. Social unrest, violence, corruption, oppressive taxes, the disintegration of the family, and a struggling economy characterize these times in the history of Mexico. The people, especially the growing Christian community, want relief. Sometimes they are unsure about what change they should be praying and working for or if such is possible in time. This remnant is who we hope to reach with a Biblical faith for all of life.
The raising of a Godly, Just and Free society — as opposed to Yet Another Fascist/Socialist Slave Camp — takes the time, energy, money, and commitment of individuals and families: expect no Sugar Daddy donations or a penny of government funding.
This is as it should be.
I trust and pray that you, Christian, are giving a hand in this noble labour: perhaps by donating to these charities, or by working in your own country, to raise the Authority of Christ Jesus above all men, and above all things.
