In Mathew 24, this promise is clearly linked with the end times.
Mt 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
The promise that the nations would be justified is called the gospel of the kingdom. The terms 'nations,' 'heathen,' 'Gentiles,' and 'families or tribes of the earth' all mean the same. In Revelations they are spoken of as of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. Today missionaries speak of them as people groups or ethnic groups. And they keep close track of the numbers of people groups that have not yet heard the gospel preached. There are some who will tell you that the gospel has already been preached throughout the world even as far back as the time of Paul, but the missionaries will tell you quite different. And after all that's their business, they're in a position to know.
