According to the New Oxford American Dictionary, the word “milestone” has the following definition:
"an action or event marking a significant change or stage in development"
A few days ago, we reached the important milestone of surpassing 50 million messages listened to and downloaded from AudioVerse!
To put it into perspective, our recordings have an average length of 40 minutes. That means these 50 million messages represent a cumulative of 1.4 million days’ worth of Bible-based audio material—that’s the equivalent of 3,835 YEARS. If each one of these messages were played back-to-back sequentially starting today, we wouldn’t be done until the year 5858!
We praise God for the impact that this little ministry has done through the sacrifice of our team members through the years as well as you, our listeners and supporters.
However, the New Oxford American Dictionary also has another definition for the word “milestone.”
"a stone set up beside a road to mark the distance in miles to a particular place"
A milestone is also a road sign indicating how much farther we have left to go. And while 50 million is a large number in one sense, it is also tiny in others. Take just this one comparison:
There are 8 billion people living on Earth now. That is 160 times more than 50 million.
If our destination is to take the Gospel to every man, woman, and child on Earth, then this milestone means we are only just getting started.
The mission of AudioVerse since the very beginning has been to hasten the Lord’s return by proclaiming the Three Angels’ Message through online media. Our pursuit of this mission remains unchanged and our vision is undimmed. There indeed is a lot of work left to do, and we invite you to join us in it.
This ministry is made possible through the generous support of listeners just like you, and your financial partnership is vital to enable us to reach the next 50 million and the one after that.
If the Lord moves upon you to join in this mission, you may give at our donate page by credit/debit card or ACH transfer, and if you are concerned about the credit card transaction fees, you may give via our PayPal Giving Fund page. Or you may send a check to AudioVerse at our address below.
I look forward to the day when we will see with our own eyes the great multitude of the Redeemed! (It will much more than 50 million!)
"After this I beheld, and a, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb." Revelation 7:9-10
May we be faithful until He comes,
