Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded: Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega .. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, .. they .. have right to the tree of life, and .. enter .. the city."

1. Preach repentance and peace; heal the sick and cast out devils.

"Luke 10:1 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come." Jesus had twelve disciples, and he has appointed seventy more. In verses 2-12, Jesus sends these workers to preach peace that comes after repentance; and to tell them that the kingdom of God is at hand. This is only introduction or preamble to his gospel, but it is not the gospel. There could be disciples also among the seventy. They healed the sick and cast out devils. "17 says, the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name." Please notice, preaching peace is not the gospel, even though, those who preached had power to heal the sick and to cast out devils. Only the message of how to inherit the kingdom of God, is the gospel. No other preaching is the gospel, according to the Lord Jesus Christ.

2. Eat his flesh, drink his blood, that is to abide in him; it is for eternal life.

His seventy disciples preached peace, repentance; healed the sick, cast out devils; and so on. In John 6:50-58, Jesus spoke to Jews and to his disciples. "53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. 54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. ... 56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him." In this, Jesus told them to eat his flesh and to drink his blood, which is a figurative speech. It means that they must receive him within their being, to be one with him. It is for their resurrection with glory on the final day, which will be for their eternal life. "66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him." Even his seventy disciples, who did heal the sick, cast out devils, and did miracles, also left him saying that it is hard teaching. "67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? 68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life." Judas Iscariot stayed there for another purpose, and only the eleven disciples stayed with him, because Jesus Christ has the words of eternal life.

3. All power is given again to Jesus Christ; he is God in Omnipotent Spirit.

Please notice, who did Jesus Christ chose to preach his Gospel? "Matthew 28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: ..." These are the eleven people who did not go away for the sake of the words of eternal life. They are the one, who are willing to eat his flesh and to drink his blood. Jesus Christ chose them to preach the gospel of the kingdom of God. "18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth." Now Jesus told them who he is. The Omnipower is given back to him. And so, now he is God in the Spirit and he is no longer a man.

4. Gospel is to obey the commandments that Jesus gave to his disciples.

Now, he tells them what the gospel is. And we must also preach the same gospel. First, preach them to repent. If they have repented, they will have peace with God. If God has given us power, we may heal the sick, cast out devils, and so on. Jesus tells them in "19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" If they respond to your preaching, baptize them. Now they are members in the church. So, teach them. What to teach? First let us see the same passage that is recorded by Mark. "Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; ..." Mark records that, after the baptism, preach. Matthew records that, after the baptism, teach. Preaching and teaching are the same. Mark mentioned the word gospel, but he did not explain what the gospel is. But Matthew mentions the word teach, and he explains what to teach. "Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Jesus Christ tells us two things here. Number 1: Teach the commandments that Jesus Christ gave to his disciples. So, the gospel is the commandments of Jesus Christ gave to his disciples. Eat his flesh and drink his blood, which is to receive him in us, is also included in his commandments. Number 2: Jesus Christ says that "lo, I am with you alway." So, Jesus Christ promises that he will be with us, which is abiding. If we receive him, he will enter in our being; that is, he will live in us. Then, we will inherit the kingdom of God as joint heirs with Jesus Christ. This is his gospel. So, we must preach or teach the gospel to the church, so that we will obey his commandments and inherit his kingdom.
