Three Angels, One Warning: Global Confusion”

THE FINAL GENERATION—Revelation 14:12

Dylan Grice: “The 99% blame the 1%, the 1% blame the 47%, the private sector blames the public sector, the public sector returns the sentiment . . . the young blame the old, everyone blame [sic] the rich . . .” (in John Mauldin’s “Out of the Box” 10-26-12)

Arthur Schlesinger: “What makes the current situation worse today is that the world faces a spreading recession that will intensify every grievance, every antagonism, every hatred. As good times ease entry into full membership in a national community, so hard times sharpen animosity and conflict. Unemployment, especially among the young, poisons human and social relationships. People who can’t find jobs look around for some other to blame—the blacks or the Jews or the immigrants. If the U.S. goes into depression, it will not be a melting pot. It will be a boiling pot.” (Wall Street Journal 12/11/91)

The Great Controversy: “Those who honor the law of God have been accused of bringing judgments upon the world, and they will be regarded as the cause of the fearful convulsions of nature and the strife and bloodshed among men that are filling the earth with woe.” (614)

    •   Paul—Romans 7:12, 7—“the commandments of God” are the .
    •   John T. Anderson: “There can be no question that the ‘commandments of God’ that the saints keep at the close of earth’s history are indeed the , God’s holy law, the Decalogue spoken from Sinai and committed to writing by God’s own finger.” (Three Angels, One Truth 297)
    •   John T. Anderson: “This divine reminder [of the seventh-day Sabbath in the Fourth Commandment] has been
      under attack from the very beginning, for Satan saw how great a the Sabbath can be when faithfully observed. The devil hates the Sabbath, because [1] it identifies God as the Creator; because [2] by taking time off and spending it with Him it builds our relationship with God; because [3] it outlines salvation as a system of grace (we rest in His work); and because [4] it demonstrates God’s ability to bring His work to completion.” (123)
    •   “Three Angels, One Warning” that will be the battleground of earth’s endgame between Christ and Satan and that will determine on whose side you will stand.

 “To obey is better than sacrifice” (1 Samuel 15:22) for is the highest form of worship.

  • □  ID Marker #3—Radical to Jesus
    •   “Here are those who hold fast to the of Jesus.”
    •   The “faith Jesus” describes His perfect life of unshakeable faith and trust in the Father that He lived out for me, with God gladly receiving Jesus’ victorious faith as my own.
    •   “Faith Jesus” describes me placing my personal faith in Jesus and His perfect sacrifice in my place, trusting H is victorious life, death and resurrection as the sole basis of my acceptance with God.
    •   This final ID marker makes it unequivocally clear that obedience to God and His Sabbath is not a form of legalism but is rather the fruit of passionate devotion to Jesus as both and .
  • □  Seven parallels between Daniel 3 and Revelation 13/14:
    •   #1—Babylon rules the .
    •   #2—The king of Babylon creates an to honor himself.
    •   #3—He demands of himself.
    •   #4—The penalty for refusal is the pain of .
    •   #5—All the world bows down and worships the image—all except a small .
    •   #6—Their reasons for refusal are the same: radical ; radical ; and radical .

  #7—Blamed by Babylon, they are thrown to their death—but the Son of God is with them—and them.
