2Ti 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2Ti 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
2Ti 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
2Ti 4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

We do not know who will be saved. God knows, but we do not. Some believe that God chooses and so we do not need to witness. That is wrong, for we are called to be witnesses. Others say that all are saved; why witness if all are saved? Some say that there are many ways to God, but Jesus says that he is the way, the truth and the life. (John 14:6) Other preachers do not want to offend so they always teach soft easy to hear messages, but where then is the conviction of sins? How will the hearers know that they need to repent? There are many wrong teachings and beliefs and they will get worse as the end approaches. We are to preach the word of God, in season and out of season. It may not be convenient for us, but it may be another's season to receive the Lord Jesus Christ. Preach the word.

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

You must have faith to believe. You must hear and hear again the gospel message.

Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
Rom 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

It is time to preach the gospel it is time for the world to hear the truth, to repent and to turn to God for salvation in our Lord Jesus Christ. Preach the truth of God's word! Now is the season to preach the word.

2Co 6:2  (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) 
2Co 6:3  Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed: 

Do all things in the love of God so that he is glorified.
