Tell It to the World!

The message you must share at the end of time

In recent years I have come under deep conviction that we as a people need to begin focusing upon the everlasting gospel of the Three Angels’ Messages. There is no other message which will go to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people at the end of this earth’s history. I believe it is the most comprehensive gospel message ever given in the Bible.

In the first angel’s message, the concentration is upon the complete conversion and surrender of the life to Christ. There follows the practical principles of Christianity, the great final judgment hour message, which is central to the sanctuary message, and finally, the centrality of the Sabbath which will provide the final test of loyalty for all mankind.

The second angel presents the fearful message of the fall of Babylon. The message leads to the separation of the inhabitants of the world, leading every human being either to the side of Christ or to the side of Satan.

The third angel’s message presents the fearful consequences for those who refuse to worship the Creator on His holy, sacred, Sabbath day. The blessing which we find at the conclusion of this message is a description of the character of God’s people who are ready for eternal salvation. This is the message which God has called us to take to the world.

The messages will not be taken to the entire world until God’s saints are sealed and they have received the latter rain. (5T 214) We will not receive the seal of God unless our characters have been perfected by Christ. The solemn connection is given in 1T 187. “Those who come up to every point, and stand every test, and overcome, be the price what it may, have heeded the counsel of the True Witness, and they will receive the latter rain, and thus be fitted for translation.”

I urge you to consider starting up a Three Angels’ Messages training program in your church. I would recommend two books, written by my brother and me, which are useful resources for such a program:

Adventism Proclaimed – for those already well-versed in the Three Angels’ Messages,

The Everlasting Gospel – for those desiring a simpler approach to this topic.
