Gospel Preached in the Whole World

A friend of mine just quoted a Scripture reference to argue the point that the end can’t come yet because the gospel has not reached every single tribe on earth…

And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (Mat 24:14, ESV)

My response was that the Scriptures also tell us that the gospel IS in all the world…

…Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel, which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and growing–as it also does among you, since the day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth, (Col 1:5-6, ESV)

But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have, for “Their voice has gone out to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.” (Rom 10:18, ESV)

If we interpret Scripture by Scripture perhaps we can already count the Lord’s words about the gospel being preached as an accomplished fact.
