The last words of Yahushua [to His disciples] were, 'Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature' (Mark 16:15). And spreading His hands above them in benediction, He ascended to heaven, surrounded by hosts of heavenly angels who had come to escort Him on His way to the portals of Yahushua. His last commission ("the great commission") to His disciples made them the agents whereby His gospel of glad tidings was to go to the nations. This was Yahushua's last will and testament to His followers who walked with Him during the years of His earthly ministry, and to those who should believe on Him through their word." Ye Shall Receive Power, page 315.

The following excerpt is based on “Testimonies for the Church, Volume Eight,” pages 14-18:

The commission that Yahushua gave to His disciples just before His ascension is the great missionary charter of His kingdom. In giving it to the disciples, the Saviour made them His ambassadors and gave them their credentials. If, afterward, they should be challenged and asked by what authority they, unlearned fishermen, went forth as teachers and healers, they could reply: "He whom the Jews crucified, but who rose from the dead, appointed us to the ministry of His word, declaring, 'All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.'"

The disciples were not to wait for the people to come to them. They were to go to the people, hunting for sinners as a shepherd hunts for lost sheep. Yahushua opened the world before them as their field of labor... It was of the Saviour that they were to preach, of His life of unselfish service, His death of shame, His unparalleled, unchanging love. His name was to be their watchword, their band of union. In His name they were to subdue the strongholds of sin. Faith in His name was to mark them as Christians.

The great commission given to the disciples is given also to us. Today, as then, a crucified and risen Saviour is to be uplifted before those who are without Yahushua and without hope in the world.

Not with tame, lifeless utterance is the message to be given, but with clear, decided, stirring utterances. Hundreds are waiting for the warning to escape for their lives. The world needs to see in Christians an evidence of the power of Christianity. Not merely in a few places, but throughout the world, messengers of mercy are needed.

The words "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15) are spoken to each one of Yahushua's followers. All who are ordained unto the life of Yahushua are ordained to work for the salvation of their fellow men. The same longing of soul that He felt for the saving of the lost is to be manifest in them. Not all can fill the same place, but for all there is a place and a work. All upon whom Yahushua's blessings have been bestowed are to respond by actual service; every gift is to be employed for the advancement of His kingdom.

To us also the promise of Yahushua's abiding presence is given. The lapse of time has wrought no change in His parting promise. He is with us today as truly as He was with the disciplines, and He will be with us "even unto the end."

May Yahuwah help His people to realize that there is earnest work to be done. May He help them to remember that in the home, in the [ekklesia], and in the world they are to work the works of Yahushua. They are not left to labor alone. The angels are their helpers. And Yahushua is their helper. Then let them labor faithfully and untiringly. In due season they will reap if they faint not.

NOTE: More details of what The Great Commission entails is recorded by Matthew.

BEFORE the cross - (Mat.23: 2,3). YAHUSHUA said  to the MULTITUDE and to His DISCIPLES - 'The scribes and the Pharisees sit in MOSES' SEAT: ALL therefore WHATSOEVER they bid you OBSERVE, that DO -'

“MOSES' SEAT” comprises ALL Laws and rules of the TORAH [Genesis to Deuteronomy] including the annual Feasts and the original 7th day Sabbath commandment which was written in stone by the finger of the Creator at Mt. Sinai – and here now written in the heart by His spirit.. [2 Corinthians 3:3]

AFTER the cross - (Mat.28 :19, 20).


'Go and teach ALL NATIONS (Jew and GENTILE alike) --- teaching them to observe ALL things WHATSOEVER I have commanded  you'

NOTE His identical words  - ALL WHATSOEVER –  in both commands.

TO ALL WHO CLAIM THAT THE LAW WAS NAILED TO THE CROSS - NOTE VERY CAREFULLY His identical words “ALL WHATSOEVER” in both commands – before and especially AFTER the cross!
It is therefore incumbent upon all true believers today to prayerfully seek Yahuwah’s direction and wisdom as to how to observe and obey everything in TORAH - with the exception only of the sacrifices and oblations, [see Daniel 9:27].

Daniel prophesied that ONLY the sacrifices and oblations would be terminated when Yahushua became OUR perfect sacrifice and High Priest – ‘And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate’. Daniel 9:27. Yahushua confirmed His fulfillment of this prophesy when He said – ‘For this is my blood of the new testament [covenant], which is shed for many for the remission of sins’. Matthew 26:28

Everything that Paul or anyone else wrote MUST be understood as being in keeping with this last command of Yahushua! Paul taught the converted Corinthians to observe Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread (I Corinthians 5:7-8), and he kept the Sabbath and Feasts himself (Acts 16:13; 18:21; 20:6, I Corinthians 16:8).

All true believers will continue doing so - "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of Yahuwah, and the faith of Yahushua." (Revelation 14:12) "Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city." (Revelation 22:14) and ALL flesh will continue to do so for eternity – [Isaiah 66:22,23].

Related Content: - We believe that the original manuscripts (autographs) of the Bible were free from any corruption. And that today the King James Version of the Bible still represents the inspired word of Yahuwah, and is "profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of Yahuwah may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works" (2 Tim 3:16, 17).

In light of our unshakeable faith that the Bible is the word of Yahuwah, we will not overlook the undeniable corruptions that have crept into it over the centuries. We believe that it is the duty of His people in these last days to become acquainted with the verses which have been corrupted. Unincidentally, these corruptions have all been used to uphold man-made doctrines, such as the Trinity dogma. Discovering these corruptions will lead a student of the word only to confirm one's faith in the validity of true Biblical doctrines.

The following is a list of some of the blatant corruptions:

Matthew 28:19

  • Corrupted: "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."
  • Original: "Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all nations in My name."

Question #7: What is your instruction regarding the old Jewish economy? Is there any thing for us today to gain from its study?

"As we gather up the divine rays shining from the gospel, we shall have a clearer insight into the Jewish economy, and a deeper appreciation of its important truths. Our exploration of truth is yet incomplete. We have gathered up only a few rays of light. Those who are not daily students of the Word will not solve the problems of the Jewish economy. They will not understand the truths taught by the temple service." {Spalding Magan Collection, p. 306}

We have taken out from the original article all pagan names and titles of the Father and Son, and have replaced them with the original given names. -WLC Team
