"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

The declaration is: Jesus Christ and his disciples preached the gospel of his kingdom and healed all sickness and disease. Explanation: Jesus Christ gives his disciples power and authority over the devils and to heal diseases. Gospel is for eternal life and healing is for a sign. Signs follow them that believe the power and authority of God. Eternal life is given to them, who believe and obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Bible says that Jesus Christ is the only Author of the gospel. Isaiah prophesied that the Holy Ghost has anointed Jesus Christ, who was sent from heaven, to preach the gospel. Isaiah 61:1 says "The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,..." Here, the prophesy is that Jesus Christ is the only one person, who was anointed and sent to preach the good tidings, which is the gospel. Jesus proclaimed to Jews that it is he, who will preach the gospel in Luke 4:18. It says, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted,.." Jesus Christ did preach the Gospel when he was alive as a man and what he has preached is recorded in the Bible. Matthew 4:23 says: "And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, ..." Mark 1 says: "14) Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 15) And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel." Jesus Christ sent his disciples to preach the gospel even before he was crucified. Luke 9:6 says: "... they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing everywhere." So, Jesus Christ did preach the gospel, taught his disciples to preach the gospel and send them also to preach the same gospel that he has preached. The gospel is the good news that tells us how can we inherit the kingdom of God. Jesus Christ preached that good news, and called it as the gospel.
Gospel is not preached for material prosperity, healing of sickness, etc,. Signs are not to be preached, but they are miracles. Here are two lessons and one video in the links. Please listen to them. "Gospel", "Commandments", "Gospel Video."
