God’s Warning Ensuring Your Eternal Life
If you want relief from your fears of the things you’ve done wrong, or you’re searching for peace in place of your fears and anxieties, you’re not alone. In this look at what God has to say about the end of time, you’ll be able to leave your fears behind and find new hope in God’s love for you. These words from God’s book bring the peace you’ve been searching for in knowing that God’s done everything to clear your record in His courtroom.It feels like things are getting out of control, but in the Bible we learn time and time again that God often sends warnings before disasters strike. Through Noah, God warned the world before a worldwide flood destroyed the earth. God also used Joseph to warn Pharaoh of a horrible famine.
The Three Angels’ Messages
Here, we will look at a warning that God has sent. He has sent it to us so that we can prepare for Jesus’ soon return. Let’s read about this warning found in Revelation 14:6.“Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth - to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people - saying with a loud voice, ‘Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgement has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.’”How encouraging it is that God’s message of warning begins with good news! He reminds us of the everlasting gospel and of His love for us. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”Now the angel warns us to “fear God” and “give glory to Him.” What does this mean? To fear God means to respect and show reverence to Him by obeying His teachings. Ecclesiastes 12:13 says, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is the whole duty of man’.” In 1 Corinthians 10:31, we see that honoring God in how we live our lives gives him glory. This bible verse says, “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”Then the angel turns to worship. You see, we are living in an age where millions reject God as our Creator. In this message of warning, God calls us to worship Him as our Creator God.Why is this message so important? Notice that something important is taking place. The angel says, “the hour of His judgement is come.” This sounds like something going on now, doesn’t it? The Bible shows us in Revelation 22:12 that Jesus will give out our reward when He returns. “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.” How will He know who deserves each reward? He will do this by judging our lives before He comes. There is a time of evaluating all the works of men just ahead of His return. Could it be that we are living in the judgement hour? Are our futures being decided by the choices we make today? The good news is that Jesus appeals to us now. He has warned us before He returns so we can be prepared!
The Second and Third Angels
The second and third angels highlight truth and expose errors. Many people follow the teachings of men over God’s Word. This is done in error. The second angel warns us about receiving the Mark of the beast. This is one of the most serious warnings in all of the Bible.But, don’t worry. We will look into the meaning of Babylon and the Mark of the Beast in upcoming programs. Just remember that God’s Word is our source of truth and safety! John 17:17 says, “Sanctify them by your truth. Your word is truth.”
A Warning to Save
We see God warning our world just before He returns. He gives this warning through three angels’ messages.The key issue is worship. God will have a group of people who worship Him as Creator. They will obey Him because they love Him. These people have decided to stand for Jesus no matter what happens.In this final message of warning, God makes His appeal of love. He appeals to everyone on earth to surrender completely to Him and commit our lives to following His truth.It’s good news that Jesus has warned us ahead of time! There is no need to be troubled. We can be prepared. Now is not a time to be afraid. It is time for us to respond to God. He desires that we will give Him our hearts. He wants us to worship Him as our Creator. Have you come to the place in your spiritual life where you have said, “Lord, I give to you all of my life? All that I have and all that I am is yours! If not, God is giving you this moment to respond to the call He is placing on your heart.
