Then why did Jesus tell the apostles to preach the gospel to every creature?
It's prophetic. During the Tribulation (dispensation), the Gospel of the Kingdom will once again be preached... by believing Jews (Israeli's). There will be Jews that are saved after the Rapture, and they will study the New Testament.
Right now, we are in the dispensation of grace, where the Gospel of Grace (through Faith, without Works) is being preached; and souls added to the Body of Christ.
Catholics, of course will tell you that there are no "dispensations", that everyone has always been saved the "same way", and that there is no future for Israel because the Church is "spiritual Israel",and that there is no "Tribulation" or "Rapture", etc. etc.
There may even be some Catholics on this board who are "posing" as IFB. and posting strange emoticons...

Are you IFB?
I was saved in a Conservative Baptist church in 1962 and attended BIOLA (Bible Institute of Los Angeles) shortly thereafter.
