The gospel message is timeless, and it isn't uncommon — even two thousand years after Jesus' ministry — for the wonder of some aspect of original Christianity literally to burst upon the stage of a person's life. Just think of this: The words and instruction Jesus gave in one particular moment to the people who listened to him have actually crossed the centuries and speak to us just as forcefully today. Clearly, so much more than the personalities of Jesus' disciples and followers — or even the personality of Jesus himself — enabled the gospel message of divine Truth to stay the course of history and benefit so many lives.
When his time on earth was almost up, Jesus told his disciples "Ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass." Yet Jesus then added: " He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. . . . Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."
