Our Hearts Do Not Cease!
The population had grown to such an enormous number that it excites the missions field, yet it also brought about worries of what we were lack of.
Japanese had ceased to be the largest unreached people group on earth this month. The population of Shaikh in Bangladesh had grown so much, that the number out beat the Japanese. The demographic in Japan is such that soon, Japanese will dropped to the position of no. 3, 4, or 5. Does it sound good to your ears as Japanese is no longer the largest unreached people group as of now?
Nothing had really been changed in Japan. Even as we cried for REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL! Many new centers had been set up in Japan， many new churches, home churches had taken over the died down old churches. We see a spark of reconciliation, awakening here and there, yet it is still NOT ENOUGH！
Yes, Japanese may ceased to be the No. 1 largest unreached population in the world, but it is not going to remove us from guilt of not telling the good news to the diminishing millions! One thing that we cannot do is to claim that because we had done so and so and so, or it is because of God had aimed His way so and so and so, that there are people doomed to be perished!
Yes, many people perished in Japan.
The blood is on our hand.
We did not send enough workers！
Even as there are places with workers, yet the arrogant and pride had stumbled the harvest.
We got to REPENT! It's a pain to admit it, but we had just not done enough!
The Christian world had been BLIND to the cry of millions of souls in Japan!
The number of the Japanese population in Japan had not changed, 122, 179,000. But the Shaik in Bangladesh increased, 128,292,000 while in September this year, it was 122,139,000.
Soon, the old are going to die and the new had not come forth. Sadly it is the same in the demographic of the Japanese as well as the mission field.
The missionaries in the India contingent have a lot to do. The population is uprising with the uncontrolled birth. There are going to be more problems, and more issues. Everywhere in the world is a pressing mission field itself at present! Japan will not ceased to be the largest mission field even with the drop of the population. We have much to do!
The Heart of the Father does not cease, and our hearts do not cease!
The Lord do not send people to hell. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2Peter3:9)
