Evangelists? Thousands of them are in church jobs to which God never called them. It is time for the Body of Christ to boldly reaffirm the Office of Evangelist!

Some pastors become angry if you ask why God has given evangelists. The fact remains forever that God’s concern today, as at Calvary, is the salvation of souls. And when Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven, He established the work of evangelists within the Church to help accomplish this great work (Eph. 4:8-16).

Jesus instructed, “Go ... and make disciples of all the nations” (Matt. 28:19). There is no alternate plan in case the Gospel fails because it won’t! More people are being saved, healed and baptized into the Holy Spirit today than ever before in man’s history. The tempo is increasing,leading to but one conclusion: Jesus is coming soon.

We are not called to go into a battle with the outcome yet to be decided. The battle was won at Calvary. Jesus commanded the disciples: “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers” (Matt. 9:38), and added, “Go!” He still says it. It is a transferred mandate.

Revival comes from God, yes, but when? When we repent of our plain disobedience and return to the basic task— Evangelism. Every single church activity should relate to turning the world back to God. Why are we waiting?
