Where we are in this world’s events and what can we expect? If you are a student of prophecy, you are more than aware “angels” are used to bring “light” to the world. There are 3 angels which each bring a particular message, and a 4th which only enhances those messages with additional strength. In other words, God doesn’t want you to miss the importance of these messages given to the world–NOW! That’s right, in OUR time.
Now, the first two angel’s messages have already been pronounced and accomplished and we’re in the time of the third angel. Here’s what the Bible says regarding it: “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. 12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. Rev 14:9-12 (KJV)
Notice verse 11 mentions the group who will “worship the beast…” versus the next verse which gives the “other” group: …they that keep the Commandments of God…” Ever wondered why it mentions it? Have you heard people say we’re no longer needing to “keep the Commandments”, yet here is John, who in 95 AD, some 60 years after Jesus died and left, would state in the end-time, OUR time, just before the Lord returns, He’s looking for a people who WILL BE KEEPING the Commandments of God, not accepting some erroneous view about them being nailed to the Cross! Interesting, too, is the fact the method of “worship” is ONLY FOUND in the Commandments, the very 4th Commandment! (Exo. 20:8-11). No wonder Satan has taught maybe YOUR church you don’t need to keep the Commandments therefore making you an immediate member of those who “worship” him through the beast!
My Friends, your salvation is too important to leave it to theories, to another man’s understanding. Have you read the Bible, cover-to-cover, for yourself? If you haven’t then how can you possibly expect to know what is truth or a lie? Or for that matter, do you know if your pastor has read the Bible cover-to-cover? Ask him, or her and find out. Some of you would do better to put more faith in your television weather reporter than your pastor! If the Devil could fool an immense group of perfect beings who lived and served in the presence of God, what chance do you possibly think you have? This is a solemn and sober message.
Oh, that 4th angel, I mentioned, you will see him in the 18th chapter of Revelation and he’s telling people to come out of where they are–immediately and quickly, before it’s too late. Come out of what and go into what? It’s not that complicated. Leave where God’s Commandments are not being kept and join where they are. Please, please, please, do not let it be too late for you. You won’t know the time when it will be too late until it is too late!
Now, I’m not one to play with numbers and coincidences, but I do find it interesting to read in John 6:66: “From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.” Don’t be one of those.
