From the first book of the Bible until the last one, the single real issue is consistently one… Worship!
Worship the true God, in the right way, on the right day…
Time and again, from the garden of Eden, throughout the history of our world, Satan has deceived God’s people to worship the creation instead of the Creator; to worship Satan instead of the true God.
We’ve seen this repeatedly from Adam and Eve, Israel and Christianity, and this is the same thing we are warned about in the book of Revelation. It reaches the top of solemnity in the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14.
This is the last warning from God to humanity.
In the time of “the church of Philadelphia”(rev.3:7-13), God restored His truth about who He is and how He should be worshipped, but Laodicea the next church was prophesied to apostate, and buy from the one who trades with lies.
(By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:
Ezekiel 28:5 KJV)
Our church, The Seventh-day Adventist Church, came into existence, in a different way than any other church… God brought it to life…it didn’t came from the catholic church, it was prophesied in two different parts of the scripture about the time of it’s formation, but through Ellen G.White, God revealed the end from the beginning.
In her first vision of our prophet, in the second part of it, (check DayStar first vision of Ellen White) she saw God and Christ moved from the holy place into the most holy place. Satan came and sat on the throne and people worshipped him; only a small portion of people we’re following God and Christ into the most holy place, by faith…
So far so good, but what’s disturbing its the next sentence:
” I saw one after another leave the company who were praying to Jesus in the Holiest, go and join those before the throne and they at once received the unholy influence of Satan.”
This was prophesied and its happening in our days…
Let’s see how:
The mission of our church is to spread the three angels’ messages to the ends of the world, and then the end will come…
These messages contain the everlasting gospel!
In order for us, as God remnant, professed people, to be able to do that, we must understand this messages clearly; otherwise what we will share would be a lie…so let’s check them out:
And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
Revelation 14:6 KJV
As we see here the first angel has an everlasting gospel; what is that?
First thing first, the word gospel (greek:euangelion) means “good news”.
Every Christian knows the fact – that God, the Father, gave His Son for our salvation.
The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
Mark 1:1 KJV
For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;
Romans 1:9 KJV
Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
Mark 1:14 KJV
We can see from the scriptures above, that the gospel belongs to Jesus Christ, the son of God, and it has to do with the kingdom of God.
Until John the Baptist, nobody preached the kingdom of God as being at hand.
Only he and Jesus proclaimed that and this is what Jesus came to give us. So it must be very important! let’s have a look:
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Matthew 6:33 KJV
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
John 18:36 KJV
And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
Luke 17:20-21 KJV
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Romans 14:17 KJV
And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Daniel 2:44 KJV
Firstly, we need to realise the fact that the kingdom of God is not of this world; it’s of a spiritual nature. It doesn’t come with observation; also, it’s something that is inside of you, and it has to do with righteousness and and peace and joy…(all these three things are mentioned by EGW in the vision I mentioned earlier).
In the beginning when God created the world, He was king over creation, and He gave dominion to Adam, but Adam lost it in favor of the serpent (Satan); at this moment Adam lost righteousness and implicitly eternal life. But God made a promise in Genesis 3:15, that the “seed of the woman” would come and crush the head of the serpent; and that’s Jesus, who came to take the dominion back and to give that to us…
We need to keep in mind that all these things are of a spiritual nature; but they are not metaphors…
Adam lost dominion and righteousness (and implicitly eternal life) in the garden;
A promise of restoration was made;
In the fullness of time Jesus came, and He gave us the right back to be sons of God, and by this we receive everything back: our God-given righteousness (with eternal life) and dominion.
All this things were described in types and shadows in the blueprint of the tabernacle that God gave to Moses.
We won’t deal with this now, because we need to deal with the three angels’ messages.
So the everlasting gospel is the spiritual restoration of Christians by Christ paying for our sins, and becoming our father as the second Adam in order to redeem us and to give us everlasting life.
(still the first angel)
Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
Revelation 14:7 KJV
This is the only angel that tells us what to do…
The other two, are simply saying what’s happening if you fail to listen to the first angel.
So better pay attention….
Here, we are calling to:
-give glory to Him because the hour of His judgement has come
-and worship Him, because He is the one that created everything.
This God is the true God, and He is in contrast to the false god of Babylon, who is called “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Rev. 17:5
We usually go in Exodus to identify the true God, and leave Revelation completely and forget that the issue in the the book of Revelation its a matter of who you worship, not just when…that’s secondary.
So it should make sense to identify the One who we are supposed to fear [respect], give glory and worship, thereby we don’t fall into the other category.
After all, John said that Satan will deceive the whole world to worship him, before the end of the world.
The book of Revelation stands different from all other Bible books as it spans from Lucifer’s [Satan’s] downfall in heaven to the new holy Jerusalem / new heaven and a new earth.
In some ways it is addressed to Christians only, because it’s a continuing letter with the purpose to travel to all the seven churches which are in Asia. They prophesied what would happen to the church from conception following Christ’s death until His return.
Throughout all this period, there have been and will be professed followers of Christ who have and will benefit from it’s message.
so John has seen the whole world wandering after the beast…
This deception is very sneaky and powerful.
Therefore it is crucial that we identify the one true God.
A good point of reference for us would be to study the apostles, and even better Jesus, who came from heaven to reveal us spiritual things.
Let’s now have a look at the one who made the heaven and earth…
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Genesis 1:1 KJV
God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
Acts 17:24 KJV
And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is: Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the
Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
Acts 4:24-27 KJV
At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
Matthew 11:25 KJV
We see that the God that has made the heaven and earth, is the Father of Christ, but let’s check further, to be sure…we don’t want a private interpretation, so we need the whole perspective on this matter from the Bible…
And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein:
Acts 14:15 KJV
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Matthew 16:16 KJV
And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
Revelation 7:2 KJV
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.
Revelation 14:1 KJV
Again, from the above verses, we see that the one God that made the heaven and the earth is called the living God, which is the Father of Jesus, and the seal (regarding the seal of God and the mark of the beast) belongs to this living God. This seal is the “Father’s name written in their foreheads”.
The first angel is referring to the Father…
Now you might wonder…did John just leave Jesus out of the picture? … just like that, out of the blue?
The Bible say that everything was made by the Father through His Son Jesus Christ:
But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
1 Corinthians 8:6 KJV
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
Hebrews 1:2 KJV
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 14:6 KJV
It’s pretty clear here about the divinity of Christ; but the first angel is referring specifically to the Father.
The position is also very plain. The first angel is stating that we must worship the Father, which can only be made through His Son.
In fact the whole book of Revelation pictures “God and the Lamb [being His Son]” as the object of worship. In opposition, we have the “Dragon and the Beast”.
(the Dragon being the false god and the Beast being the way of worship)
So when you worship the Lamb your worship goes to the Father, when you worship the Beast, your worship goes to the Dragon.
Keep in mind that “the prize” of this worship is either eternal life; the alternative being eternal death…
Now we look briefly in the Bible about the eternal life:
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
John 17:3 KJV
And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
1 John 5:11 KJV
And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
1 John 5:20 KJV
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 6:23 KJV
We see from the above that eternal life comes from God (the Father), through His Son; and the way that is happening is explained in the following verses:
I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
John 6:48-50 KJV
And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
1 Corinthians 15:45 KJV
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Galatians 4:6 KJV
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
John 8:36 KJV
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
1 Timothy 2:5 KJV
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
John 14:10 KJV
The Son of God was made a quickening spirit as the second Adam, and by faith we receive His (Holy) Spirit. By that we receive righteousness and eternal life. We are saved from sin, because we have Jesus as a mediator within God’s heavenly sanctuary and within our body (the temple of the Holy Spirit of God). This occurs because Jesus acts as our hight priest.
This is what the Bible reveals about the true God and His Only Begotten Son. John 3:16 KJV
On the other side, the false God is coming with another spirit, one different from that of the Father and the Son.
The god of Babylon is called mystery…
As such, the father and the son are just metaphors, because all three of them are coequal, coeternal and all three derive different sources of creation….
None of the them are derived from another. All of them are without a beginning, and the one that makes you free here on earth is “god the holy spirit”, a term never stated within the Bible; neither is “god the son”. Both the Son and the [Holy] Spirit in the Bible belong to God.
How can you have eternal life if God is something that you cannot understand ? Are we not told to “know” God and His only begotten Son?
the beast of Revelation is the antichrist of Bible prophecy. The scriptures state that he denies the Father and His Son.
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
1 John 2:22-23 KJV
We know that papal Rome was identified as being the antichrist. How is Rome denying the Father and the Son?
Extracts taken from the Vatican’s website:
232 Christians are baptized “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”53 Before receiving the sacrament, they respond to a three-part question when asked to confess the Father, the Son and the Spirit: “I do.” “The faith of all Christians rests on the Trinity.”54
233 Christians are baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: not in their names,55 for there is only one God, the almighty Father, his only Son and the Holy Spirit: the Most Holy Trinity.
234 The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is the central mystery of Christian faith and life. It is the mystery of God in himself. It is therefore the source of all the other mysteries of faith, the light that enlightens them. It is the most fundamental and essential teaching in the “hierarchy of the truths of faith”.56 The whole history of salvation is identical with the history of the way and the means by which the one true God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, reveals himself to men “and reconciles and unites with himself those who turn away from sin”.
245 The apostolic faith concerning the Spirit was confessed by the second ecumenical council at Constantinople (381): “We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, who proceeds from the Father.”71 By this confession, the Church recognizes the Father as “the source and origin of the whole divinity”.72 But the eternal origin of the Spirit is not unconnected with the Son’s origin: “The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, is God, one and equal with the Father and the Son, of the same substance and also of the same nature. . . Yet he is not called the Spirit of the Father alone,. . . but the Spirit of both the Father and the Son.”73 The Creed of the Church from the Council of Constantinople confesses: “With the Father and the Son, he is worshipped and glorified.”74
This is what the god of Rome looks like. Do you think our God is looking the same?
Where have you seen in the Bible, “god the holy spirit” separated from God? Where in the scriptures is there a requirement to worship the holy spirit?
Where is in the Bible is there the spirit of someone, another person apart from the individual ?
Is the Father not a Spirit? Doesn’t He have a shape or a form also? Doesn’t His Son have a similar shape or form ?
But in the doctrine of the trinity, god the spirit doesn’t have a “body”… that’s really a mystery !
Should this doctrine be true then, before the incarnation of Jesus, the holy spirit overshadowed Mary; so in this case, the holy spirit is the father of Jesus…
With the trinity doctrine, the earthly born Jesus would have two fathers – a god the father and a god the holy spirit. The LGBTQIAP+ community would have got it right !!!
But with a 3in1 god, then he would also have farthered himself !!!
Do you see a problem there? the Bible shows that the spirit proceeded from the Son. Remember when Jesus breathed on them the Holy Spirit. But the trinity teaches that Jesus proceeded from the holy spirit!
Also in a trinity environment at the baptism of Jesus, we would have God the Father anointing Jesus with god the holy spirit.(god, anointing god with god?)
All this is absolutely ridiculous; isn’t it?
In reality it’s so simple, there is no mystery, the Father anointed His Son with His [Holy] Spirit:
Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
Psalms 45:7 KJV
This is talking about the Father and His Son, only!
The expression “the holy spirit” reveal what kind or nature the spirit is, in this case “holy”.
From Genesis 1:2 onwards, the Holy Spirit always belongs to either God or Christ. “ … ..And the SPIRIT OF GOD moved upon the face of the waters.”
God’s Spirit is holy; Satan’s spirit is evil…
A spirit [small s] can never exist apart from someone.
For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
1 Corinthians 2:11 KJV
Nowhere within scripture will you find the spirit of someone being apart from that individual.
In fact, only for “the Holy Spirit” is there an “exception” made…and we have no licence to do that…
we are “adding” to the book.
There is one individual in the scripture, who use to be a ministering spirit, that wants to be like God, and he craves worship…
In fact this is the reason that he left his lofty position in heaven, because he desired worship.
The fact that “the holy spirit” of the trinity, doesn’t have a name, and is equal with the Father and the Son, and it’s part of the god of Rome, should be enough to identify who is behind all this …
This is Satan, formerly called Lucifer, trying to put his throne above the stars of the Most High.
This was prophesied from the beginning of our church…
welcome to the end of the end of time.
