The very IMPORTANT three angels messages to the world

15 Oct

14:6-7 The Three Angels’ Messages: The three angels brought to view in this next section have messages of utmost importance for the world. They are God’s last call to the world before Christ comes as portrayed in verse 14.

The First Angel’s Message:

This angel has the “everlasting gospel” to preach “to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.” The attacks of Satan had so weakened God’s true church that to all appearances the gospel commission, to take the good news to the whole world (Matthew 28:19-20), could ever be fulfilled; but God’s purposes will go forward to completion. In the early 1800s God worked through faithful men to create a mighty advancement in spiritual fervor. This hastened the good news of the gospel forward by leaps and bounds throughout the world. Christ prophesied that “this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all world…and then shall the end come.” Matthew 24:14.

The gospel is the good news of salvation by grace, through Christ’s sacrificial life, death and resurrection. John 3:16-17; Romans 1:3-5; 3:23-24. But notice what this angel says under the heading of the gospel: “Fear God,” “Give glory to Him,” “The hour of His judgment is come,” and “Worship Him” as the Creator. To “fear God” is to depart from evil and reverence Him. Exodus 20:20; Proverbs 3:7; 14:16, 27; 16:6.

God’s glory is the perfection of His character expressed in His wonderful goodness and wisdom, in His matchless love, justice and power. Exodus 22:18-19; 34:5-6. We “give glory to God” when we worship Him, show Him respect and demonstrate faith in Him. We glorify Him when our lives represent His character through our love for others, and our obedience to His commandments. 1 Corinthians 10:31; 6:18-20; Matthew 5:16; Romans 4:20.

This is the judgment that was described in Daniel 7:9-10. The purpose of the judgment is to vindicate God’s people and condemn the powers that are persecuting them. It is often called the pre-advent judgment, in which the books of record are investigated, to determine the fate of each professed believer in God. In the 1820s Godly men around the world began preaching the message, “The hour of His judgment is come,” applying it to the second coming of Christ, and setting the time around 1844. God’s hand was in the movement, and by 1844 the message had been taken to a significant portion of the world. In America, William Miller advanced this message to a point of great prominence. However, the appointed time came and Jesus did not come and deliver His people. These earnest Christians suffered a terrible disappointment similar to what Jesus’ disciples suffered when their hopes for an earthly kingdom ended with the death of their Master on the cross. The advent believers soon discovered their mistake; they found that the cleansing of the Heavenly Sanctuary, which began in 1844, announced the beginning of the Pre-advent Judgment, not the second coming of Christ.

The angel bids mankind the “worship” God as the Creator of all things. Contrasts this with the warning against worshiping the beast and his image in the third angel’s message (vss. 9-11). The first four commandments of the Decalogue (Exodus 20:3-11) are at issue here. The beast’s demand for worship is a violation of the first commandment: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” Exodus 20:3. Worshiping an image (vss. 9, 11) is a violation of the second commandment against the worship of images. Exodus 20:4-5. The first angel specifically cites the Sabbath commandments “worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea.” Exodus 20:8-11. Thus the command of worship God applies to keeping the first our commandments, especially the Sabbath command, which is a memorial of creation. Exodus 20:4-11

 

14:8 The Second Angel’s Message:

Because God mixed up the people’s language at the tower of Babel, the term “Babylon” has come to mean confusion. See Genesis 11:1-9. The ancient kingdom of Babylon took God’s people captive and has long been recognized as the enemy of God’s truth and of His people. Jeremiah 50-51. God uses the term here as reference to the doctrinal confusion in the modern churches. The announcement that “Babylon is fallen” refers to their departure from Bible truth. This message was first preached in the summer of 1844 to the churches of the United States, where the warning of the judgement had been most widely proclaimed and most generally rejected. But the message of the second angel did not reach its complete fulfillment in 1844. In a larger sense, “Babylon” encompasses all the system of false religion in the world. Revelation 17:4, 5; 18:2.

14:9-11 The Third Angel’s Message: The third angel g.ives a fearful warning to those who “worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark.” See notes on Revelation 13:15-17 and 14:6-7 for the nature of this mark. Those who drink the wine of Babylon’s impure doctrines will “drink the wine of the wrath of God.” This will be fulfilled both in the seven last plagues (Revelation 16:1-2) and in the lake of fire. Revelation 20:10, 15.
