    Hello
    Someone was saying the great commission was being fulfilled today so I asked who is being healed today.

    Healing is one of the signs that would follow the preaching of the twelve.

    God’s elect; all those whom he has planned to save.

    Yes that is what I’m saying, they are being healed of their sickness.

    Lk. 5:31
    And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.

    Mt. 10:8
    Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give

    Lk 9 is the limited commission. The great commission didn’t come about until Mk 16

    Why is it any different today? They rejected the counsel of God by not being obedient in baptism. Why do people think today they can just ask for forgiveness without baptism and God will be pleased? If they rejected then, in the same way people reject today. If not why not.

    Isaiah 2:2 was fulfilled at Pentecost and beyond.

    Hello
    The kingdom was postponed by the dispensation of grace and the diminishing of Israel.

    Hello
    Baptism was for Israel under their covenants and the law (Romans 9:4).

    Hello
    No I don't think so.
    The "great commission" was given to the disciples and was to be implemented by Israel in being a blessing to the nations (Genesis 18:18) which would be taught the things of God (Psalm 67:2 Micah 4:2).

    The Lord said go and teach all nations baptizing them in the name of the father son and Holy Ghost. The entire religious world acknowledges Mt 28 as the great commission. The great commission did not come from Gen, the psalms, or Micah. Nobody that I know of either teaches that the great commission was just to Israel. If that is the case we can all stop preaching the gospel right now. Matter of fact if we don’t we are sinning since it was only given to Israel.
