Sabbath Afternoon

Read for This Week’s Study: Rev. 14:6-12; Matt. 24:14; Eccles. 12:13-14; Exod. 20:2-11; Isa. 21:9; Isa. 34:8-10.

Memory Text: “Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus” (Revelation 14:12, NKJV).

Revelation shows that Satan’s end-time deception will be so successful that the world will choose to worship the beast and receive its mark. Yet, Revelation 14:1-5 tells us that God will have His remnant, those who will take their stand for the Lord when most of the world doesn’t.

In the end, people will have to choose, not whether to worship or not (everyone always worships something), but rather, whom to worship. The worshipers of the beast will receive the mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, symbolic of their choice to serve this apostate system with their deeds and/or minds.

At the same time, the world will witness a great proclamation of the gospel, such as has not been seen since the day of Pentecost. Before the judgments of God are poured out upon rebellious humanity, God will send His warning messages “to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people” (Rev. 14:6, NKJV). God does not want anyone to perish but all to be saved, which is why Christ’s death was for all humanity. The question is who will accept that provision and who won’t.

It is interesting that it only takes one disobedient sin to be lost. One only has to break one of the commandments. If we offend in one point, we offend in all. What does it mean and how far does this go? What if we offend in some "little" thing?



Study this week’s lesson to prepare for Sabbath, March 9.
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

The Three Angels’ Messages

Just before the end, God sends His warning messages, symbolically portrayed in terms of three vocal angels flying in the sky. The Greek word for angel (angelos) means “messenger”. Evidence from Revelation suggests that the three angels stand for God’s people who are entrusted with the end-time message to share with the world.

Read Revelation 14:6 along with Matthew 24:14. The first angel’s message is referred to as the “everlasting gospel” (Rev. 14:6). What does describing this proclamation as “the everlasting gospel” tell us about the content and purpose of the first angel’s message? Why is this message central to all that we believe?

It is stated before "the hour of His judgment is come." Why? Because it is the foundation of our faith. In order for others to believe us they need to see we are converted (following the gospel) and that Jesus is the center of all we believe. It is the gospel message that saves, not judgment or the rest of the three angels message.


This first end-time message is the gospel proclamation in the context of the hour of God’s judgment that has come upon the world. The gospel is good news about God, who saves human beings on the basis of faith in Jesus Christ and His work for them. The gospel is “everlasting” because God never changes. His plan was put in place even before we existed (2 Tim. 1:9, Titus 1:2). The first angel’s message includes both salvation and judgment. It is good news for those who give glory to God and worship Him as their Creator, but it also is a judgment warning for those who reject the Creator and the sign of true worship He has given - the seventh-day Sabbath.

His judgment announced here is not judgment upon the world, but it is the investigative judgment which began when Jesus moved into the Most Holy Place to begin this judgment of those who have professed to serve God, and preparing a people to stand without a Mediator through a time of trouble such as never was,


The three angels are described as proclaiming the messages with “a loud voice” (Rev. 14:7, 9). These messages are urgent and important; they must be heard by all because it concerns their eternal destiny. As such, they must be proclaimed to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people. This proclamation is particularly significant because, at the time of the end, the beast will exercise authority over “every tribe, tongue, and nation” (Rev. 13:7, NKJV). Satan’s deceptive activities, worldwide in scope, are met by the end-time proclamation of the gospel worldwide.

The three angels’ messages are proclaimed by God’s people to counter Satan and his end-time allies - the dragon, a symbol of paganism/spiritualism; the sea beast, which signifies Roman Catholicism; and the false prophet, or lamblike beast, representing apostate Protestantism (Revelation 13). They will operate up through the time of the sixth plague (Rev. 16:13-14). Thus, the world is presented with two rival messages, each with the goal to win the allegiance of the people on earth.

None of the plagues will be poured out until probation closes. All will then have decided who they will serve. The filthy will remain filthy and the holy ones will remain holy even when going through the time of trouble such as never was.


As Seventh-day Adventists, we are called to reach the world with the end-time truths contained in the three angels’ messages. What are you doing to help do just that? What more could you also be doing?

If we are not being true witnesses of the character of God, then we are supporting Satan's claim that we cannot keep the commands of God. How can we trust Jesus with all we are and all we have? We must know Him intimately. How can that happen? It would be well to spend some time with Jesus every day. By beholding His glory we shall be changed into His image (character) day by day (2 Cor. 3:18).
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

The First Angel’s Message: Part 1

Read Revelation 14:7 along with Ecclesiastes 12:13-14. What does it mean to “fear God”? How does the concept of fearing God relate to the gospel, and what does the gospel have to do with keeping God’s commandments? (See also Rom. 7:7-13). What is the connection between fearing God and glorifying Him?

The call to “fear God and give glory to Him” (Rev. 14:7, NKJV) is proclaimed in the context of the “everlasting gospel”. A realization of what Christ has done for our salvation results in a positive response to Him.


Before going to Fear God, we need to present the real gospel that the church and the world know the power of grace to transform the life at conversion. It is the heart that is purified, not the flesh. When Christ has the whole heart, then we become partakers of God's divine nature and are empowered to keep the laws of God.


In the Bible, fearing God and giving glory to Him are closely related (Ps. 22:23, Rev. 15:4). Together, they designate a right relationship with God (Job 1:8 ) and obedience to Him.

To fear God does not mean to be afraid of Him but to take Him seriously and allow His presence in our lives. God’s end-time people are the ones who fear God (see Rev. 11:18, Rev. 19:5). God desires His people to love Him (Deut. 11:13, Matt. 22:37), obey Him (Deut. 5:29, Eccl. 12:13), and reflect His character (Gen. 22:12).

It is important for God’s people to give Him glory because “the hour of His judgment has come” (Rev. 14:7, NKJV). The judgment in view here is the pre-Advent investigative judgment, which takes place prior to the Second Coming. The purpose of this judgment is to reveal whether or not we are truly serving God - a choice made manifest by our works (2 Cor. 5:10). At the conclusion of this judgment, the destiny of every person is decided (Rev. 22:11), and Jesus will come to bring His reward to every person according to his or her deeds (Rev. 22:12).

Judgment in Revelation 14 is a part of the gospel. To those who are in a right relationship with God, judgment is good news; it means vindication, salvation, freedom, and eternal life. However, it is bad news for the disobedient, unless they repent and turn to God by accepting this end-time, judgment-hour message. God does not want anyone to perish but all to come to repentance (2 Pet. 3:9).

How could you stand, alone, in the judgment? What verdict would your life reveal? What does your answer tell you about the need for the gospel and why it is linked so closely together with judgment in the first angel’s message?

This is not a bad lesson. It is better than many teach. At least the truth is presented that it is us who are being judged, not God. It would be good to clarify just a little bit more so those being deceived will better understand that if we are not found in harmony with the commandments, which are the standard in the judgment, then we ought to be fearful of the judgments that will come from God. There is such a thing as fire and brimstone at the end of this all after the thousand years. The wicked, those not saved, will be raised from the grace to be burned until all sins have been punished. The "worm" shall not die. That is one will not black out from pain until all is burned up. Then the sinner will be no more. A reason to fear God if one continues to reject His love and continues in sin.

Not all come up in the investigative judgment. Only those who have professed to serve God. All others need not be judged for they have never professed to serve God. They need not be judged. Those who have professed will have to stand before Christ with the books open. What books? The books that recorded our lives. In them are the deeds we have done. But, more than that are the thoughts, and even the motives are written down. It is the heart that God is going to reveal to the universe. If it was fully given to Christ, then the motives will be seen to be holy and pure. Simple truth, but many have no idea that this is what happens because they have believed a lie.
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

The First Angel’s Message: Part 2

Revelation shows that the central issues in the last crisis of earth’s history will be worship and obedience to God, as revealed in keeping His commandments (Rev. 14:12). The people of the world will fall into two groups: those who fear and worship God, and those who fear and worship the beast.

The world is choosing each day which group they will end up in. It is the character that reveals who they are following. Has self died? Are we reflecting the character of Christ? Who has the heart? At the end, there will be only two groups. Those who have hardened their hearts in resisting God and His truth, and those who have been learning of God and seeking to do His will through the power of His grace. By beholding we become changed into one or the other character. The Bible says that the time will soon come when the holy will remain holy and the filthy will remain filthy. The character will never change, for they are sealed for ever in one of the two groups.


Review the first four commandments of the Decalogue (Exod. 20:2-11). Then go through Revelation 13. How does the beast’s demand for worship (Rev. 13:7-8), the setting up of an image to the beast to be worshiped (Rev. 13:14-15), blasphemy of God and His name (Rev. 13:5-6), and receiving of the mark of the beast (Rev. 13:16-17) point to Satan’s attacks on the first four commandments of the Decalogue in the final crisis?

The central concept of the first four commandments of the Decalogue is worship. Revelation indicates that these commandments will become the standard of loyalty to God in the final crisis. The final conflict between Christ and Satan plainly will revolve around worship and the first four commandments.

Yes, but all of the commandments must be obeyed, not just the first four. And, the issue will revolve around one commandment that will reveal to the universe and this world which side we are on. The last great test will be on the fourth commandment. And if offend here, then we offend in all of the commandments. Why is this?


The key issue in the final crisis is emphasized in the second exhortation of the first angel’s message. The call to “worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water” (Rev. 14:7, NKJV) is almost an exact quotation of the fourth commandment of the Decalogue (Exod. 20:11). This fact shows that the call to worship God the Creator is a call to Sabbath observance.

Rest and worship on the seventh day - Saturday - is a special sign of our relationship with God (Exod. 31:13, Ezek. 20:12). The first angel’s message is a call to worship the Creator.

“While the observance of the false sabbath in compliance with the law of the state, contrary to the fourth commandment, will be an avowal of allegiance to a power that is in opposition to God, the keeping of the true Sabbath, in obedience to God’s law, is an evidence of loyalty to the Creator. While one class, by accepting the sign of submission to earthly powers, receive the mark of the beast, the other choosing the token of allegiance to divine authority, receive the seal of God”. - Ellen G. White, The Great Controversy, p. 605.


Amen!  This has not always been the case. But, at the end, the Sabbath commandment will be the test. It is interesting that God allowed the fourth commandment to be misunderstood for so many years, but it was so very wise. Why is that? Because it is one the ten commandments. When I found out the Sabbath was on Saturday, I was amazed. I had thought all of my life the Sabbath was Sunday. When I was converted, I wanted to know why we all were going to church on the Sunday. Because it was one of the ten commandments, I would not let go until I got a good answer. I never got a good answer. It was Walter Martin who convinced me that there was no good answer, so I walked into a Seventh-day Adventist Church 35 years ago. When I sas the world in the church, I wept. But, I would not leave because I knew God led me into the church.

This is His church and it will see revival and reformation. It is a Bible promise.


How is our view of Creation and Salvation related? Why is resting on the Sabbath as God did so important?

God is all powerful. He is the creator God. He created Adam out of the dust of the ground. Amazing! Do we believe it? Sure we do. Then, believe He can recreate you into His image (character). It is the greatest of all miracles. It was easy for God to create Adam. It is not so easy for God to recreate me. Matter of fact it is impossible for God to it on His own. He cannot make me love Him. We all have free will. Unless we learn of Him, unless we make a whole heart surrender, He cannot recreate us in His image. So, we also in creation see His love for us. It was for us He created the world in six days. And, if this is not enough to prove His love, He allowed His innocent Son to come to this dark spot in the universe a helpless baby subject to the weakness of humanity to fight the battle of life as we must fight it, at the risk of failure and eternal loss! Wonder O heavens and be astonished O Earth! Herein love!!
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

The Second Angel’s Message


The second angel’s message announces the fall, or apostasy, of Babylon and identifies it as a false religious system. In Revelation 17:5, “Babylon is said to be ‘the mother of harlots’. By her daughters must be symbolized churches that cling to her doctrines and traditions, and follow her example of sacrificing the truth and the approval of God, in order to form an unlawful alliance with the world”. - Ellen G. White, The Great Controversy, pp. 382, 383.

Read Revelation 14:8 along with Revelation 18:2 and Isaiah 21:9. The twofold repetition of the word “fallen” points to Babylon’s progressive apostasy and signifies the certainty of her full moral collapse. Babylon is described as already fallen, but her fall is also described as future. Why is that?

The end-time Babylon in Revelation is a union of false religious systems that includes Roman Catholicism and apostate Protestantism. These will put themselves into the service of Satan against God’s people (see Rev. 13:11-18, Rev. 16:13, Rev. 17:5). This apostate religious union will manifest the arrogance of ancient Babylon in exalting itself above God and will seek to take His place in this world. The message of the second angel warns God’s people that this wicked system will depart further and further from the truth in consequence of her refusal of the light of the end-time gospel message. Only when “the union of the church with the world shall be fully accomplished throughout Christendom, will the fall of Babylon be complete”. - Ellen G. White, The Great Controversy, p. 390.

Read again Revelation 14:8 along with Revelation 17:2 and Revelation 18:3. How does Babylon make the world drink of the wine of her fornication? What does this wine symbolize?

Revelation 17 pictures end-time Babylon as a harlot making people on earth drunk with her wine of immorality (Rev. 17:2).

The wine of Babylon refers to the false teachings and false gospel offered by this apostate religious system. Today, as many Protestant churches, in fulfillment of Bible prophecy, rapidly erase the differences that once separated them from the Roman Catholic Church and turn away from biblical truth, we witness the corrupting influence of Babylon’s wine amongst the professed body of Christ: theistic evolution, which is implicitly contrasted with the reference to Creation in the first angel’s message; theological traditions replacing sola Scriptura; revised ethics abandoning biblical definitions of gender, marriage, and so forth. Intoxicated people cannot think clearly. As the people become spiritually inebriated by Babylon’s wine, Babylon will seduce them into worshiping the sea beast and receiving the mark of the beast.

Yes, false doctrine blinds precious souls to the gospel truth. Ought we take notice of this, or is the church immune to false gospels?  :(  Who in the church does not know that there are multiple gospels being preached from our pulpits and printed on our presses. Then we ought to fall on our faces and ask God to open our eyes to our own condition in light of Rev 3:17-20. "Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." 
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

The Third Angel’s Message


How does Revelation 14:12 depict God’s faithful people?

In contrast to God’s faithful people, Revelation 14:9-10 warns about the fate of those who face God’s wrath. In the Old Testament, the outpouring of God’s wrath is described symbolically as drinking wine from a cup (Jer. 25:15-16). The severity of the judgment upon the worshipers of the beast is expressed as drinking the wine of the wrath of God that is poured out “without mixture” (Rev. 14:10) into the cup of His indignation. In ancient times, people often diluted wine with water to reduce its intoxicating strength. But the wine of God’s wrath is described as “unmixed” (akratou). The unmixed, undiluted wine represents the pouring out of God’s wrath in its full strength, without mercy.

Read Revelation 14:10-11 along with Revelation 20:10-15. How do Isaiah 34:8-10 and Jude 7 shed light on the statement: “And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever” (NKJV)?

The statement of the torment with fire and brimstone refers to total destruction. Fire and brimstone is a means of judgment (Gen. 19:24, Isa. 34:8-10). The ascending smoke of destruction is a well-known image in the Bible. Isaiah prophesied of the future destruction of Edom by fire and brimstone: it will become a burning pitch; “it shall not be quenched night or day; its smoke shall ascend forever” (Isa. 34:10, NKJV). Jude describes the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah as suffering the punishment of “eternal fire” (Jude 7). These texts do not talk about endless burning, for none of these cities is burning today. The consequences are eternal, not the burning itself. The “eternal fire” in Revelation refers to annihilation; the burning will be long enough to make the consumption complete until nothing is left to burn.

Yes, it is an abomination to teach that God is going to burn sinners for eternity. That is not a just God. Our God is perfectly just and merciful. Justice demands that unrepentant sinners suffer the pain of fire and brimstone until every sin is paid for. The worm shall not die until justice is satisfied. Fear God if you will not cease resisting His love. For everyone you hurt you will suffer. Turn to Christ and learn of Him. He has already suffered in your place. There is no need to suffer. Learn of His love!


Although we can be thankful for the great truth that the fires of hell don’t torture the lost for eternity, the punishment is still terrible enough. What should the permanence and the severity of the punishment tell us about the sacred task we have been given to warn others about what is coming?

Amen! And not only that, but the fact that Jesus paid the price means that we ought to tell what that price was. We do not half understand the sufferings of Christ and our heavenly Father. Such love!!
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

Further Thought: Read Ellen G. White, “The Final Warning”, pp. 603-612, in The Great Controversy.

Revelation shows that at the time of the end, God’s people are commissioned with the proclamation of the end-time gospel to the world. The work before us seems daunting, all but impossible. However, we have the promise of God’s power.

“The great work of the gospel is not to close with less manifestation of the power of God than marked its opening. …

The message will be carried not so much by argument as by the deep conviction of the Spirit of God. The arguments have been presented. The seed has been sown, and now it will spring up and bear fruit”. - Ellen G. White, The Great Controversy, pp. 611, 612.


The conclusion of the proclamation of God’s final message will result in a great separation that divides people in the world into two camps: those who love and obey God and those who follow and obey the beast. This separation is portrayed in terms of two harvests: the gathering of the wheat into the storehouses (Rev. 14:14-16) and the grapes to be trampled in the winepress (Rev. 14:17-20). This final separation is the subject of Revelation 17 and 18.

Discussion Questions:

    Reflect on this thought: Who is preaching the three angels’ messages other than Seventh-day Adventists? What should this tell us about just how important our work is and how seriously we should take it?

    Why do you think judgment is an unpopular concept among many Christians? What relevance does the concept of the pre-Advent judgment have for Christians today? How would you help your fellow believers better understand the true meaning of the pre-Advent judgment?

It is the lies that have come into the church that make this truth unpopular. All is well, don't rock the boat! Let us remain in our ignorance. If we don't know, then we are not guilty. "Miserable, wretched, poor, and blind, and naked." We are just fine the way we are. Sin does not take away our salvation, so be quiet and get lost. In other words, we don't need to be told we have to obey God in order to have salvation. Our pastors have told us we are fine, that a little sin does not cause us to lose our salvation. We do not have to be "rejustified" after we sin. Yes, when one has swallowed such lies, they do not want to hear otherwise.


    Think about the question of the Sabbath in the context of final events. The issue is: Whom will we worship - the Creator of “the heaven and the earth” (Rev. 14:7, NASB), or the beast power? The Bible teaches that the seventh-day Sabbath is the oldest (Gen. 2:2-3), most foundational sign of God’s creatorship of “the heaven and the earth”. What does that truth teach us about why the Sabbath, as one of God’s commandments (Rev. 14:12), plays such a prominent role in the final crisis?

It plays the central role because it is one of the ten commandments. And, it has been unknown to many for almost 2,000 years. It is a simple truth that all ten of the commandments are from God and are still binding. There is nothing in Scripture that gives cause to throw out one of these commandments written with the finger of God. When we study the Bible we find that there is no reason to throw it out and there is evidence that says the evil one hatched a plan and worked through the papal power to change times and laws.

Are we going to follow Christ and His Word, or are we going to follow tradition and the laws of man? God leaves the choice up to us. If we love Jesus supremely, we will obtain His character and have power to keep His laws and not sin against God and man. If we do not fully surrender the whole heart to Jesus, we will not be able to resist the temptation to break God's law and follow the laws of the world so as to not suffer under that law. How very sad to hurt Jesus and others and ourselves by giving into Satan's ploys. Let us give glory to our God by reflecting His character. The Bible tells us how we can do this. 2 Cor. 3:18 has been kept from many professing Christians. "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord." It is an intellectual and a spiritual truth that by beholding we become changed. The mind gradually adapts itself to that which it loves and reverences. If will spend a thoughtful hour  a day contemplating the life of Christ, we shall be transformed into His image (character) by the Spirit. Let us "look and live."
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

 It is interesting that Rev. 14: 8 repeats that Babylon is fallen, is fallen.

The papacy controls the state twice; from 5:38 to 1798 A.D.. She dominates the world twice, and falls physically twice, once in 1798 A.D and also at the end as stated in Revelation 17:15-17.
It's easier to slow a fast horse down than to get a dead one going.

cp, I am not sure the point you are making.  The Roman Church fell long ago and never repented, truly repented of her false gospel and associated lies being taught. Why do you think she did? In order to fall, you must be consecrated first.

Rev 14:8 is not speaking of Rome only, but of Babylon which includes her daughters. I believe this "fall" is  speaking of the whole of Babylon which means that some in the Protestant Churches have not completely fallen from grace until she is fallen, fallen. Rome fell long ago and has never come to a point where she could fall again. But, not all have come over completely to join with her.  Not long ago, the Lutheran Church was still calling the papacy what Martin Luther did. For that reason a US presidential candidate withdrew from the church and called them bigots. Not sure when they will change their minds, but it can't be too long.
