The Mark of the Beast and the Seal of God – The Third Angels Message

 
    The Third Angels Message


- Revelation 14 details a message of 144,000 who overcome sharing the three angels messages. The third angels message warns us about  the mark of the beast and his image and those who will faithfully give a final message of warning to the world.

Rev 14:1  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.

This third angels message details 144,000 who are sealed by the spirit of God.(Eph 4:30)  And another much larger class who worship a beast and his image and receive what is termed “the mark of the beast”.

Rev 14:9-13  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, 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:  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. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.  And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

In this last day there have been a people who have come forth declaring this message.  There have also come forth “many false prophets”(Matt 24:11) and they claim to be teaching this message however it is counterfeit of the true third angels message that God gave to his saints for this last day.  As was prophesied by Jude when he said:

Jud 1:3-4  Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Denying the only Lord God(Fear God and give Glory to him)

When Jude prophesied of a people who would come in unawares denying the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ, he said they would come in privily with these doctrines.  Or in other words these doctrines would be snuck into the churches.

The first angels message is a call to reform to the “only true God”(John 17:3) and restore the gospel which teaches us about how “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son”(John 3:16).

Rev 14:6-7  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,  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.

Many have a false concept of God today and are teaching another gospel.  Denying that God is the father of Jesus Christ and exalting another God in his place.  But not just denying that God is the father of Christ, but also that he is our father.

Joh 20:17  Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.Who is God?

1Jn 3:1  Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

In denying this truth, we deny “the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world”(1 John 4:9).   By beholding we become changed.  If  our view of him is skewed, our love will also be skewed.

Sadly this deception has deceived the whole world and the world has “changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature(beast) more than the Creator”(Romans 1:25).

This is what having a false concept of our creator will lead to.  Worship of creation, the creature and finally worshipping the beast and its image.

The focus of this website is restoring the truth about God which nominal Christianity today has turned into a lie.   The gospel and the hour of his judgment are very important concepts for Gods last day remnant to proclaim to the world.  After you understand the truth about God you will be “Saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come.    I pray that you take the time to study this issue out as “is divine power hath given unto us all things thatpertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him”(2 Pet 1:3)

Babylon is fallen, is fallen

pioneers trinityRev 14:8  And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

Following the first angel’s message and declaration of this amazing truth about God and his son Jesus Christ and that the hour of his judgment is come.  After declaring this first angels message with a loud voice we will soon come to the understanding and realization that there is another angel which is following this one with yet another very important message.

Babylon is fallen, is fallen refers to the churches that have went to the State power to use the Kings of the earth to push there message.  Like the Jewish leaders when they said “We have no King but Caesar”.  (John 19:15) and shortly after that they “killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead;”(Acts 3:15).   That Prince is the son of the King and will shortly put on a crown and come again as King of Kings of the earth as stated after the third angels message of Revelation 14.

Rev 14:14  And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

This division of the wheat and the tares takes place after the third angels message of Revelation 14 and is not to be confused with the divisionBabylon that takes place when “Babylon is fallen” as the second angel states.  The second angel of Revelation 14 is more fully developed in Revelation 18 where we read of a woman committing fornication with the Kings of the earth.   A woman in prophecy normally represents a church.  Jesus is coming back for his bride and unlike this adulterous whore and the harlot daughters of Babylon, his bride is pure and she trusts in him as her defender rather than seeking the kings of the earth for protection.

Rev 18:2-4  And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and Church state Babylonthe merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

This message again is proclaimed in a loud manner.  The churches are filled with devils.  Would you send your child into a haunted house?   No, you would tell them in a loud and loving manner “No, my child, don’t go in there, it is dangerous”?  And if your child was in there you would say “Come out of her my child”.   This we must do with that same loving voice of God through his mighty angel.

The Third Angels Message

In the third angels message we see a people who “have the faith of Jesus and keep the commandments of God.”  After accepting who the true God is and announcing this with a loud voice,  and calling the people out of the false worship systems with a loud voice, the father sends another angel in this hour of judgment telling us that the world has turned fromhis commandments.  John has an amazing and remarakable vision of something in heaven.

Rev 11:18-19  And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.  And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

What is seen in heaven is “the ark of his testament”.  Inside that ark is the ten commandments.   These commandments are to be restored.  The Third Angels Message These commandments are to be written in the forehead of the saints.

Deu 6:8  And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

Isa 8:16  Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

In the message of the third angel we see that there is a “Sealing” taking place.  The 144,000 are the sealed of God.

Rev 7:4  And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Israel means “Overcomer”.  And in this last “hour of judgment” there will be 144,000 overcomers.  They are sealed by the holy spirit of God which will be poured out in a large measure.

Eph 4:30  And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Rev 14:13  … Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

The spirit teaches them something.  It teaches them a principle called “Rest”.   They are to “rest from their labors”(Rev 14:13).  Speaking of Abraham the bible says:

Rom 4:11  And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

The true gospel teaches us that we are to rest from our works, that it is not of ourselves, but that God will “work” mightily above all that we ask or think to do his good pleasure.  It is him that seals us.  We don’t work at it until we are “good enough”.  “The faith of Jesus” is a gift of God.

Eph 2:8-10  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

The word “Sabbath” means “to rest”.  The mark of the Beast is a false Sabbath.  And it is the beast’s mark of authority.  The image to the beast will enforce this mark on Gods people in the last days.

This website has studies dedicated to bringing us to a fuller understanding of all of these issues including “The Third Angels Message”, “The Beast”, “The image to the Beast”, “The Mark of the Beast”, “The Seal of God”, “Gods Church”.

I pray that everyone will study much of the listed studies that pertain to the third angels message

.

so we can know who we are and what our work is and unite on the solid rock upon which God’s true church is built finishing this final work before the time of trouble and the second coming.

2Jn 1:3  Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
