Warning! ----  God's prophetic warning's found in "The Three Angels' Messages" are a very serious and sensitive topic which is very difficult to bring to the forefront without stepping on someone's' toes.  To borrow an analogy... "When one is sick we sometimes need to take strong medicine that may not taste good, but as they say, the medicine may taste bad but the disease is much worse". This is how it is with the forthcoming message. 

 

Text in this topic may seem insensitive being offensive to some and considered "Politically Incorrect" by others.  I do not wish to offend anyone, but simply wish to divulge truth... and to some reading this topic, the information found here may cut or sting... But to borrow from another analogy...

 

A surgeon cuts to heal but a butcher cuts to kill.  God's Word is like a surgeon.. It sometimes cuts us and brings to light something we must heed.  Satan wants to kill, but God wishes to heal us and His Word will always lead us into truth.

 

The following is a summation of the "The Three Angels' Messages" found in Revelation 14:6-12.   This is an End Time message that God is proclaiming throughout the whole world in these last days.  He is calling His children to pay attention to these End Time warnings.  Will you listen?  If you have doubts whether these message are from God or not, please study for yourself the truths written in this topic.  Everything written here can be found in the books of Daniel and Revelation and in the History of Man.

 

The information found in this topic will show that the Christian church has apostatized from God's truth and what is written here was commonly accepted knowledge that all the Protestant reformers such as Martin Luther, John Wycliffe, John Calvin, John Knox, Thomas Canmer, John and Charles Wesley recognized as truth.  They all accepted, without question, what has been written here but as you will see, current day churches have totally forgotten.

 

Remember, Satan never works alone or in the open, but rather through the workings of Man.  After all, Mankind would reject Satan if they saw who he really was.  This is why Satan works his deceptions "secretly" in the background of the Human race through Men, Women, Governments or Religious systems.

 

A Final Note: This document is a long read... But please read it to completion.  If necessary, break it up into several sessions because the information found in this document is one of the most important compilation of facts you will ever find...

The First Angels Message

 

The Three Angels Message - Come out of her My People

 


As time marches on for Mankind, most go through life as if Jesus will never return.  In fact, many mock the notion that Jesus will ever return and say,"Where is the coming of this Jesus?".

 

(2 Peter 3:3) First, knowing this, that there will come in the last days scoffers walking according to their own lusts

(2 Peter 3:4) and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.

 

 

 

We marry and give in marriage, buy homes, party and plan for our future just like it was in the last days of Noah.  But since the beginning of the Christian faith, many errors and changes have occurred over time to the Christian religion and in Revelation, God is calling His people to return to a true worship of Him and is prophetically declaring a warning of things to come just before the 2nd coming of Jesus. 

 

(Luke 17:27) They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark; and the flood came and destroyed them all..

 

 


In Revelation 14:6-12, God is giving Mankind one Final Warning just before the return of Jesus and this warning is called "The Three Angels' Messages".  Through these three messages, God will expose the lies and deceptions that Satan will use to deceive the whole world in the Last Days.  

 

What you will learn from these messages is that modern day Christianity has apostatized from Biblical truth.

 

Apostasy: An abandoning of what one has believed in, as a faith, cause, or principles. (See defection, desertion, disloyalty, heresy)

 

 

These messages are warnings that God's children must understand and heed!

 

 

On an interesting side note... in the same chapter of the Three Angels Message, which is Revelation 14, Jesus is seen coming in the clouds with a sickle in his hand.  In other words, right after these three End Time messages have played out in human history, the second coming of Jesus will occur.

These Three Angel's Messages are:

 


1st message:

(Revelation 14:6) 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,

(Revelation 14:7) 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.

"It's Time" to fear God; Give Glory to Him and Worship God in Biblical truth... What this means is, it's time to reverence God as our Creator and give Him True Biblical Worship as He has outlined in His scriptures. 

(Stay put and you'll see later that "most" Christians do not realize they're not giving proper glory and worship to God...  What, you may say!!!  More on this later..)

2nd message:

(Revelation 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.

 

"Babylon is Fallen": Now this is not referring to the original Babylon of old, but rather a modern day spiritual Babylon which has crept its way into God's church and because of this...  "It's Time" to rediscover Biblical truths and remove false doctrines and current day Babylonian teachings from modern day churches which are deceiving God's children.

3rd message:

(Revelation 14:9) 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,

(Revelation 14:10) 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:

 

"It's Time" to Re-reveal the Antichrist and what the true Mark of the Beast is.   This also signals God's eminent act of closing His rift in Eternity called Time by sending His son Jesus back to Earth again, also known as the 2nd coming of Christ...

 

(Revelation 10:5) And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
(Revelation 10:6) And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

Thin Center Line

 

These three messages are meant to awaken and warn Mankind that it is time to make your decision for Christ and to worship God in truth, not error, as He has declared in His scriptures. 

 

God will expose, through these three End Time messages, many false teachings, practices and doctrines taught in both Catholic and Protestant churches today.   You will find that these false teachings do not line up with what the Bible truly teaches.

 

God is calling His children to return to a true worship of Him just as it was in the early church beginnings. What Jesus wants is for His End Time followers to be a "Remnant" reflection of how it was in the days of His Apostles.

 

(Revelation 12:17) And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

 

The Three Angels' Messages encompasses Revelation 14:6-12, but again, notice the next scene right after the third Angels' Message has been proclaimed and fulfilled on this planet.  In Revelation 14:14, the same chapter of the Three Angel's Messages, we read and see Jesus coming in the clouds with a sickle in hand to harvest the righteous from the Earth.  This is the Second Coming of Jesus! 

 

We are now entering into the third stage of the Third Angels' Message.

 

(Revelation 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.

(
Revelation 14:15) And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

 

 

Again, notice who the Devil is enraged at in Revelation 12:17...

 

(Revelation 12:17) And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

 

Now notice also what the Testimony of Jesus is...  In Revelation 19:10 it tells us that the people that Satan wages war on have the Testimony of Jesus which is the Spirit of Prophecy.   In other words, God's last day people will understand End Time Bible Prophecy which will expose Satan's Last Days deceptions to the world. They will also teach the world about the TRUE character of God. As Jesus said, if you've seen Me, then you've seen the Father. Jesus revealed what the character of the Father really was, through the actions of love by Jesus. God IS love.

 

(Revelation 19:10) And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

So these three End Time messages are very important warnings from God that we need to understand and heed.

 

 

 

Thin Center Line

 

 

Do you remember the story of Cain and Abel in the book of Genesis?   This is the story when Cain and Abel were giving an offering to God.


 

(Genesis 4:1) And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

(Genesis 4:2) And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

(Genesis 4:3) And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.

(Genesis 4:4) And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

(Genesis 4:5) But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

(Genesis 4:6) And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

(Genesis 4:7) If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

(Genesis 4:8) And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

 

 

 

 

Why did God reject Cain's offering?  Was God being unfair or critical?  No, God rejected Cain's offering because it was not what God had commanded him to give.  Cain was offering God a sacrifice of convenience.  In other words, Cain offered God what he felt God would accept OR what he felt God SHOULD accept rather than what God had commanded..  God always required a blood sacrifice.

 

This is how it will be in the Last Days Mankind will offer God worship in a manner that God will reject.  Now I am not referring to a blood sacrifice, but rather a form of worship that God will not accept.

 

 

Notice that Cain and Abel were both worshippers of God.  As it was in the days of Cain and Abel, it will be the same in the Last Days of Time.  There will be two groups of worshippers that will worship God.

One group will worship God in the same manner as Cain... By convenience or by what they feel God will accept.  The other group will worship God as He has commanded in His scriptures.

This will bring about a similar controversy like what was seen between Cain and Abel, and those who worship as Cain did will "war against" those who worship God as He commands. 

 

------  We are Now Living in the Last Days  --------   Need proof, please continue reading.   -------

 

If you look closely through Revelation 14:6-12, you will notice that the main controversy is about worship.  Revelation spells out in chapter 14, that there will be two kinds of worship in the last days.  Worship which God will accept and another form of worship which the Antichrist Beast, or the Harlot apostate church, will demand but God will reject. (The First Angels' Message v.s. the Third Angels' Message)

 

We are getting closer to when God will close the door of entry into His Kingdom.   This is known in religious circles as the Close of Probation. ( i.e. Probation for Mankind will end.) In other words, Mankind's last chance for salvation will end. 

 

After Probation closes, God will pour out His wrath on the Earth through the last seven plagues, then the Second Coming of Jesus will occur.

 

(Revelation 22:11) He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

(Revelation 22:12) And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

 

 

Probation

PROBA'TION, n. [L. probatio.] The act of proving; proof.

1. Trial; examination; any proceeding designed to ascertain truth; in universities, the examination of a student, as to his qualifications for a degree.

2.
Moral trial; the state of man in the present life, in which he has the opportunity of proving his character and being qualified for a happier state.

Probation will end with the present life.

3. In general, trial for proof, or satisfactory evidence, or the time of trial.

The First Angels Message

 

 

 

(Revelation 14:6) 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,

(Revelation 14:7) 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..

 

God is giving His last call to the World for repentance and obedience.  This last call is not going to occur in the future, but rather is occurring right now

 

This first message is saying to the World, fear God and give glory to Him because He is the Creator of all things.  Fearing God here doesn't mean to cower in fear as to tremble from someone's anger or threats... but rather to look in awe and respect at the wonderment and greatness of God because He is our Creator... 

 

But why is God calling us back to a true worship of him as Creator? This is because there is another power on Earth today which claims to have creative power.  Many of God's faithful are following this power and many without even knowing it... The power that I am referring to here, claims that its priest have the power to turn wine and bread into the literal blood and body of Christ through a ritual process called Transubstantiation... but more on this later...

 

OK, then how do we give God glory, as God's creation we have no glory of our own to give to God?  We give Him glory by allowing God's Holy Word to change our lives.  By allowing Jesus to recreate and change our character, we are able to show the glory of God to the world, by reflecting His character through our words and actions. 

 

But as you can see, most of Mankind are not doing so and our world is spinning out of control with evil because we are giving into our own selfish desires, demands and actions.  The world says, "Look out for Number One", i.e. "a Me First mentality" which is the direct opposite of what God is asking of us.  God is calling Mankind back to a true worship of God as our Creator and to a sacred stewardship of our lives.

 

 

Here is an interesting fact about the First Angel's message: The language of Revelation 14:7 "... and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters" ... Comes directly from the 4th Commandment, Exodus 20:8, of the 10 Commandments. This is the commandment that God set aside for us to remember as our day of worship.
---
Exodus 20:8
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9: Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work; 10: but the seventh day is a sabbath unto Jehovah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11: for in six days Jehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Jehovah blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
.

---

(Revelation 14:7) 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.

 

 

 

 

The reference in Revelation 14:7 to "the hour of His Judgment is come" refers to God's investigative judgment in the God's Sanctuary

 

You see there is an original Sanctuary in Heaven where God dwells, and in Exodus 25 God instructed Moses to receive an offering from the children of Israel. This offering was to be used to construct a duplicate Temple and Holy Sanctuary so God could live amongst His people.  This Sanctuary had specific instructions from God of how it was to be built.  This Earthly Sanctuary was to reflect exactly the pattern of things in Heaven which was in the presence of God.

 

In the Heavenly Sanctuary Christ ministers on our behalf as our mediator between God and Mankind by making available His atoning blood sacrifice that He offered once and for All on the cross.

 

Christ became our High priest and began His intercessory ministry in the Holy Place, the second apartment of the Sanctuary, at the time of His ascension after His resurrection

 

In Bible prophecy found in the book of Daniel 8:14, Jesus is now in the Holy of Holies, the Most Holy Place or the third apartment of the Sanctuary, and is in the process of cleansing the Sanctuary of the Lies that Satan imparted in God's creation.  This Investigative Judgment reveals to all Heavenly beings, who among the dead are deemed worthy to have part in the first resurrection.  It also makes known to the Heavenly hosts who among the living, are abiding in Christ by keeping His commandments and who have their faith in Jesus. 

 

In Daniel 7:10 it states the the Books are opened.  These books are opened to see if each individual has allowed God to change their character into the character of Christ. 

 

 

(Daniel 7:10) A fiery stream issued And came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, And the books were opened. NKJV

 

And in Daniel 8:14 it says,

 

(Daniel 8:14) And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

 

Daniels 70 Weeks and the 2300 Day Prophecy

 

 

 

This Investigative Judgment, (Daniel 8:14), signifies to the Heavenly beings just who is ready for entry into God's everlasting  Kingdom.  Satan contaminated God's Sanctuary with his lies. Those lies were about the Character of God. Satan made insinuations that God was unfair and controlling and Satan declared he could run things better than God. Satan corrupted God's kingdom with lies. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit and many of God's people have been infected with the lies from Satan about the true character of God. God is in the process of revealing Satan's lies and deceptions and vindicating His character from the Lies that Satan has deceived the world into believing about God. God is using the Three Angels Messages to expose Satan's Last Day deceptions.

A Quick Historical Lesson:

 

 

In the books of Daniel and Revelation we have the introduction and description of the Antichrist.  In Daniel chapter 2,  King Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, had a dream which Daniel interpreted for the King.  In King Nebuchadnezzar's dream was an image of a metal man consisting of 5 earthly elements, the head of Gold, the chest of Silver, the thighs of Bronze, the legs of Iron and the feet mixed of Iron and clay.  These earthly elements symbolized Kingdoms that would come onto the stage of human history that would effect Gods' people.  The devaluation of value in the metals symbolized that each succeeding kingdom would be of less glory and magnificence than the previous kingdom before it.

 

(Daniel 2:31) "You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome.

(
Daniel 2:32) This image's head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze,

(
Daniel 2:33) its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.

(
Daniel 2:34) You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces.

(
Daniel 2:35) Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

(
Daniel 2:36) "This is the dream. Now we will tell the interpretation of it before the king.

 

 

 

This dream was an interpretation of times to come.  In other words, it was a Prophetic Historical Time Line of the powers that would affect God's people which would reign in succession until the second coming of Jesus.  What Daniel interpreted was that after Nebuchadnezzar's kingdom had fallen from world domination, Babylon (B.C. 605-539), four other kingdoms would arise onto the world stage.  They were Media-Persia (B.C. 539-337), Greece (B.C. 331-168), Rome (B.C. 168 - A.D. 476), then the 10 nations of divided Rome(A.D. 476 - Second Coming of Jesus).

 

The Stone that was cut without hands, is a reference to the second coming of Christ when Jesus will destroy the kingdom systems of this world, and will set up His Eternal Kingdom where Christ will rule for Eternity.

 

Image of a  man in Nebuchadnezzars' dream

 

 

During the rule of divided Rome another kingdom would arise, a small kingdom or little horn, and this kingdom was to be the Antichrist kingdom talked about in both Daniel and Revelation.

 

This little kingdom will seek to change Gods' Laws and times and will speak great blasphemies against God.  This power will also persecute God's people for a Time, Times and dividing of Time.  In other words, 3 1/2 years.  In Bible prophecy, A prophetic day is equal to one year and the Jewish calendar had 30 days per month.  So this time frame translates into 1,260 prophetic days or actual years

 

 

(Numbers 14:34) According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for each day you shall bear your guilt one year, namely forty years, and you shall know My rejection.

(
Ezekiel 4:6) And when you have completed them, lie again on your right side; then you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days. I have laid on you a day for each year.

 

 

 

 

 

(Daniel 7:8) I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

(Daniel 7:25) And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

 

 

This Antichrist power would reign for 1,260 years on the Earth until it receives a deadly wound, then later again arise once more onto the stage of human history after its deadly wound is healed. 

 

 

Thin Center Line

A Historical Fact:

 

During the crumbling of the Roman Empire, power was given to the Bishop of Rome, which gave the Roman Catholic Church both Civil and Religious power.  The Roman Catholic Church Papacy began its temporal, (Civil or Secular), reign in A.D. 538 where they ruled for 1,260 years until A.D. 1798.  (this is a historical fact)

 

During this 1260 year time period in human history, the Roman Catholic church persecuted God's people and many Christians were tortured, imprisoned and were burned at the stake because they didn't agree with Catholic dogma. The Catholic church launched many a crusade to rid the world of 'heretics' that didn't go along with Catholic church doctrine.

 

Exactly 1,260 years after the papacy began their temporal rule in A.D. 538, Napoleon's General Berthier entered Italy in A. D. 1798, invaded the Vatican and took the Pope Pius VI as prisoner back to Valence (France) where the Pope died in exile, dealing a major blow to the Vatican's political power. 

 

This was known as the deadly wound that the Roman Catholic Papacy received after the 1,260 years of the Middle Ages.. A time known as the Dark Ages because the light of the world, the Bible, was forbidden to be read. The Papacy had both Civil and Ecclesiastic rule during this time. 

(See: Daniel 7:25, Revelation 12:14 and Revelation 13:15)

 

(Revelation 13:3) And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

The Second Angels Message

 

 

 

Thin Center Line

Just a Friendly Pause...

 

As a reminder, some of what will be said in these next sections will cut some and again I am not trying to insult or hurt anyone.  My only concern is that God's people see and hear His final warnings... and many of God's people will find they are not where God wants them in these final days.

 

I've found that beliefs and traditions we hold dear from our youth, can sometimes feel under attack if we are presented with ideas that differ from what we have been taught. I've come to recognize that if it is truth and it differs from what I believe, I have two choices. Either I hold to my error or grasp the truth and change. It can be difficult to change our beliefs since we sometimes hold them close to our hearts and it can be scary when we have to change our points of view when confronted with truth.

 

So please forgive the undiplomatic manner I use to present the material in these next sections... Current times dictate that we cannot be politically correct when delivering God's Last Days message.

 

Thin Center Line

(Revelation 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.

 

 

                       -----         and in connection with Rev 14:8 we read in Rev 18:4,5      -----

(Revelation 18:2) 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.

(Revelation 18:3) 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 the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

(Revelation 18:4) 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 plague

(Revelation 18:5) For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities

 

 

 

This second Angel's message is a very important proclamation to Mankind.  This message is proclaiming that Babylon has fallen.  "Babylon" refers to Christ's body of believers who have apostatized from true Biblical doctrine and have incorporated early Babylonian apostate pagan religious practices and man made false doctrines into God's church.  In other words, Babylon represents Apostate Christianity.

 

False practices and doctrines that are being practiced today in both the Catholic and Protestant churches are referred to as "The Wine of Babylon". 

 

What is being taught today in modern day churches, is known as Spiritual Babylonian teachings.  Many of these false beliefs and doctrines, which have no biblical fact or truth, have come from early pagan teachings through tradition or have been devised by man.

 

So why is this so important?   It is because... Just before the return of Jesus, God is calling his faithful back to Biblical Truth as outlined in His word.  God's people have been steered into many Biblical errors, false doctrines and false practices which have created a false understanding of the Character of God.

 

 

Unbiblical False Doctrines and False Practices such as...

 

-- We go directly to Heaven or Hell when we die. (The false belief that we are immortal already).
--
God tortures the Wicked for Eternity in the Lake of Fire - This is NOT true. (Origin: Catholic Dictionary - pg 395)
--
Man or a Priest can forgive your sins – The Confessional.
-- Sprinkling rather then Full Baptismal Submersion (11th century).
-- That Sunday is God's Day of worship and not the Sabbath, i.e. Saturday.
-- The teaching of a Purgatory
.
--
Praying for the dead.  -- Forbidden in the Bible
-- The Roman Rite of Mass.
-- Penance and Indulgences.
--
Transubstantiation – Belief a priest can turn Wine and Bread into the Literal Blood and Body of Christ.
-- Repetitive prayer for forgiveness of sins. Prayer beads..  -- Forbidden in the Bible
--
Prayers to the dead and relics.  -- Forbidden in the Bible
-- Infant baptism (6th century).
--
Preterism - A Jesuit teaching that the Antichrist was Antiochus Epiphanes in 167 BC.
--
Futurism - A Jesuit teaching that the Antichrist will appear during the 3 1/2 years of the End time Tribulation.

What is Transubstantiation?

 

Transubstantiation

1) the act of transubstantiating; change of one substance into another

2) R.C.Ch., Eastern Orthodox Ch. a) the doctrine that, in the Eucharist, the whole substances of the bread and of the wine are changed into the body and blood of Christ, only the accidents of bread and wine remaining


------------------------- Directly from papal Teachings -----------------------

"...the power of the priest is the power of the divine person; for the
transubstantiation of the bread requires as much power as the creation of the world. ...thus the priest may be called the creator of the Creator..."

- St. Alphonsus De Liguori, in The Dignity of the Priesthood, p 33.

 

 

Remember, in the First Angels' Message, God is commanding mankind to worship Him as Creator.  Why is God doing this?

 

This is because the Roman Catholic papal system, (i.e.  Popes and Priest) claim to have creation power.  As mentioned in the inset above, this religious system claims it possess the power of Transubstantiation... and claims to have the ability to turn the substances of bread and wine into the actual flesh and blood of Jesus.  They claim the prerogatives of creative powers that are attributes of God alone.

 

I will also note here, that the reason Babylon is stated as "fallen" is because this church did not heed the First Angels' Message by fearing God.  This church does not fear God.  This church is not worshiping God as our Creator because she is claiming the prerogative of creation for herself.  This church is not giving Glory to God because she wants the glory and is giving glory to herself rather than the true God.. 

 

The Second Angels' Message is also declaring that "It's Time" to come out of Babylon, or the apostate churches referred to in Revelation concerning the Mother Church and her Harlot Daughter churches

 

 

(Revelation 17:3) So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

(Revelation 17:4) And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

(Revelation 17:5) And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Devider Line

(Revelation 18:1) And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

(Revelation 18:2) 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.

(Revelation 18:3) 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 the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

(Revelation 18:4) 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.
 



Now, I should note here that in the Bible, a Woman refers to a church or God's people.  When the Bible refers to a Virgin or Chaste Woman it means a people or church who follow God.  A Harlot Woman refers to a church or people who have apostatized from God's truth.

 

 

The Roman Catholic church considers the Protestant churches to be her daughters since the Protestant church came into being after the great Protestant Reformation of the Middle or Dark ages. So when scripture refers to "The Mother of Harlots", Revelation 17:5, it is referring to the harlot churches that came from this Mother church. 

 

Why is Revelation referring to these churches as Harlots? It is because much of the errant teachings from the Catholic church were brought along with the Protestant church after leaving the Mother church.  Most modern day Protestant churches practice many of the same errant teachings and doctrines as the Roman Catholic church, so are considered Harlot churches in Revelation because they are compromising and trampling on God's Law just as the Mother church is. 

 

The Catholic church is now calling her Protestant daughter churches back to the Mother church under the pretext of Christian Unity in Christ.

 

 

The Protestant church has forgotten why they left the Catholic Mother church and launched the Protestant Reformation in 1517 when Martin Luther, a German Catholic priest, published his Ninety-Five Theses on the doors of the Catholic church.  

 

-- The 95 Theses on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences, commonly known as The Ninety-Five Theses, was written by Martin Luther in 1517 and is widely regarded as the primary catalyst for the Protestant Reformation.

This act of debate were protests against
clerical abuses, especially the sale of indulgences done by the Catholic church. Luther's' thesis were nailed to the Castle Church in Wittenberg Germany, in the Holy Roman Empire

in.dul.gence
n.
[sometimes I-] Eng. History the grant of certain religious liberties to Dissenters and Roman Catholics by Charles II and James II
R.C.Ch.
a partial or complete remission, under conditions specified by the Church, of divine temporal punishment that may otherwise still be due for sin committed but forgiven

 

 

 

 

If you watch the news today you will see movement in Protestant churches to reconcile with the Roman Catholic church and link hands on common interests.  This on the surface will look to be a good thing... but in the end will prove to be the final Biblical Prophecy mentioned in Revelation concerning the Beast and the False prophet.

 

 

(Revelation 13:11) And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

(Revelation 13:12) And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

(Revelation 13:13) And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

(Revelation 13:14) And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. (See Note below)

(Revelation 13:15) And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

 


Note:
In Bible scripture, the word Sword has two meanings...  

Meaning #1:  We all recognize the Word of God as being a sword that Jesus will use when He returns after the Second Coming.  That sword is the word of God. 

Meaning #2:  There is another use of the word Sword as meant in the sense of Civil or Governmental power.
  See scripture meanings next...

 

 

 

Meaning of Sword #1 -  The Word of God

 

(Ephesians 6:17) And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

(Revelation 19:15) And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

 

 

Meaning of Sword #2 - Civil Law or Governmental power

 


(Romans 13:1)
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

(Romans 13:2) Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

(Romans 13:3) For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

(Romans 13:4) For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.



 

So when it refers to the Beast in Revelation 13:14 receiving a wound by the sword, it is referring to receiving the wound by the sword of the Civil Government, when in 1798 Napoleon's General Berthier entered Rome and took Pope Pius VI prisoner... The Beast did not receive the wound by the sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God.

 

During the Protestant Reformation the Protestant church adopted many of the Pagan beliefs and errors that were in the the Catholic Mother church and today practice these false Biblical doctrines without knowing that they do not line up with Bible scripture.

Babylon:

 

So what is Babylon as it pertains to what Revelation is referring to here?  From early history, Babylon came to represent Man's defiance and stubbornness towards God, to do it man's way.  In the story of the Tower of Babel, the tower symbolized man's attempt for salvation by man's own works or devices.  It became a monument to apostasy and a symbol of the center of Mankind's rebellion against God. 

 

It should also be noted that Satan worked in the background as the invisible king to this city, Babylon, and this Babylonian system was Satan's master plan for ruling over the human race.  In other words, Satan wants to deceive Mankind into believing salvation can be obtained by works, church affiliation or anything man imagines works best for you.  Satan wants mankind to believe that salvation through Jesus is too exclusionary and wants mankind to believe we can be saved by other ways as well.

 

Satan does not want you to obtain salvation solely through faith in Jesus and he does not want you to honor God by observing ALL of God's 10 Commandments.  God is warning Mankind against all forms of humanly originated worship or Man devised religions.  Satan hates the Law of God.

Babylon also symbolizes an apostate Christian church system, the Roman Catholic Papacy, which used Civil governmental powers against the Children of God during a time in human history known as the Dark Ages.  The Papacy used their civil powers to apply pressure and persecution to those who did not agree with papal dictates in religious matters.  By using Civil government to enforce their religious dictates, the Roman Catholic Papacy dissented and apostatized from God's truth

A Final Note on the Second Angels' Message

 

 

Mankind has finished the Second Part of God's End Time Prophetic Three Angels' Messages.  In the scheme of God's plan, Mankind has entered into the Third and last movement of God's Three Angels' Messages. 

 

Thin Center Line

The Third Angels' Message timeline started in 1929 when Mussolini signed a concordat granting the pope full authority over the State of Vatican City, 108.7 acres in Rome which includes St. Peter's Cathedral." (God Cares, Vol.2, p.346). The Vatican had put Mussolini into power, and now Mussolini reciprocated by making the Roman Catholic Church the sole religion in all Italy and giving her 750 million lire in cash and one billion in state bonds. 

This monumental event was recorded in the San Francisco Chronicle with the heading "Mussolini and Gasparri sign Historic Roman Pact." Even at that point, people understood the significance of what had happened. From 1929 onward, the political status of the Vatican was thus reinstated and the wound could heal fully.

 

Notice the interesting remark made in the next box by the San Francisco Chronicle news paper in 1929 about "healing the wound" ...

 

"The Roman question tonight was a thing of the past and the Vatican was at peace with Italy. In affixing the autographs to the memorable document healing the wound, extreme cordiality was displayed on both sides." Feb. 11, 1929 - San Francisco Chronicle  

 

ROME, Feb. 11.--The Pope is again an independent sovereign ruler, as he was throughout the Middle Ages, though his temporal realm, established today, is the most microscopic independent State in the world, and probably the smallest in all history. — THE NEW YORK TIMES, Tuesday, February 12, 1929.

Thin Center Line

Since the wound has been healed for the Beast of Revelation 13:3, the fulfillment of the Third Angels' Message will progress rapidly as we see the ongoing alignment of the Roman Catholic Papacy with the USA and global world powers. The goal is for a geopolitical world governmental power with the papacy at its head.

 

 

 

(Revelation 13:3) And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

The Third Angels Message

 

 

 

(Revelation 14:9) 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,

(Revelation 14:10) 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:

(Revelation 14:11) 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.

(Revelation 14:12) Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus

This Third Angel's message is God's most solemn warning found anywhere in the Bible.  This is a warning directed against worshiping the beast, the Antichrist, and his image -- which all who reject the authority of God will ultimately do.

 

The image referred to in Revelation is a likeness of the Roman Catholic Church State that ruled during the Middle or Dark Ages.  In the last days, the Roman Catholic papal system will once again ascend to world dominance and will  impose or enforce their doctrinal and religious beliefs like they did during the Dark Ages.  Only this time, they will have the powers of the Protestant church behind them. 

 

Persecution will once again arise on the scene of human history against those who dissent from or disagree with the Roman Catholic church and her Harlot Protestant churches.  This persecution will be done in the  name of religious unity and will continue until the second coming of Christ.

 

This Third Angel's message reveals that those who submit to human authority in Earth's final crisis will worship the beast and his image instead of the true God and will receive the Mark of the Beast... i.e. will follow Roman Catholic church dictates and Sunday worship legislation...  More about this later.

 

There will be two groups of people at the End of Time 

 

 

One group will advocate or accept the gospel of human devising and will worship the beast and his image, the papal system, receiving the Mark of the Beast.   The Catholic church states, their Mark of Authority comes from the fact that they changed the day of worship from Saturday, to Sunday. This group will accept the authority of the Catholic church, which will bring upon themselves the wrath and judgments of God.  Again, the image of the beast will be a revived Roman Catholic papal rule, just as it was in the Dark Ages. (i.e. 538-1798). 

 

The other group of people will live by the true gospel of Jesus Christ and His atonement for sin on the cross and will only recognize God's Authority.  They will keep >> ALL<< the 10 Commandments of God, including God's Sabbath, and will have their faith in Jesus. (See Revelation 14:9, Revelation 12:17)

 

Please continue reading and you will fully understand why God's End Time people will keep >> ALL <<  of the Ten Commandments.  What group of people will you associate with?

 

 

The Mark of the Beast

 

 

Before discussing the Mark of the Beast let us first look at the Strong's Greek and Hebrew dictionary definition of the word Anti...  Most believe the word Anti, as used in the term Antichrist, means against... such as against Christ, but look at what Strong's Dictionary says it means..

 

 

Strong's Greek and Hebrew Dictionary: G473

Anti
an-tee'

A primary particle; opposite, that is, instead or because of (rarely in addition to): - for, in the room of. Often used in composition to denote contrast, requital, substitution, correspondence, etc.

 

 

 

As you can see, Anti means, in place of, or substitution, not against Christ like many in the church believe.  So what is this mark referenced in Revelation?  This mark will be a sign of allegiance to the Roman Catholic papal day of worship which is Sunday. In the Last Days, Satan, through the instrument of religion, will force Mankind into making a decision to show where our allegiance lies. 

 

Now this mark is not a real physical mark on your hand or forehead, but rather a show of allegiance to Man's devised religion. This mark will not be a chip under your skin, a bar code or a computer in Belgium.  This mark will be the acceptance or Mark of Authority of the Roman Catholic Church papal System, which is their change from Sabbath to Sunday as the day of worship. 

 

This mark will be Legislated and Enforced through civil government and those who accept the Catholic Church papal System as their authority are doomed to destruction at the end of time.  

 

 

(Revelation 13:6) And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

(Revelation 13:17) And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

(Revelation 13:18) Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666).

 

 

Thin Center Line

 

Now I know you probably know this by now... but If you haven't figured this out yet, the Roman Catholic Church Papacy is the AntiChrist system mentioned in both Daniel and Revelation and is the Beast and THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS referred to in Revelation.

 

Protestant Reformists such as, Martin Luther, John Wycliffe, John Calvin, John Knox, Thomas Canmer, John and Charles Wesley believed without a doubt, that the Antichrist power outlined in the scriptures pointed to the Roman Catholic Papacy, (or Papal system). 

 

So the notion that the Roman Catholic Papacy, (or Papal system) is the Antichrist system found in scripture is nothing new to the Protestant church... That is, of course, until current times.  This is a fact that has fallen off the radar screen and God is bringing this truth back into view because this power will ascend to world dominance once again on the stage of human history just before the return of Jesus.

 

Just as Satan used Judas from within the inner circle of Christ's disciples to betray Christ, Satan is trying to destroy God's church from within using this Antichrist system.  This is why Judas and the Antichrist both hold the name "son of perdition" in scripture.  These are the only two Biblical characters to hold this designation.

 

 

The Bible mentions this falling away from sound Biblical doctrine in 2 Thessalonians 2 and makes reference to a man of sin which will come onto the scene of human history before the return of Jesus.  This man of sin also has the title of "the son of perdition".

There are only two places in scripture where "the son of perdition" is mentioned... One is mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2, which refers to the Antichrist and the other in John 17:12 which is Judas

Devider Line
The Antichrist:

(2 Thessalonians 2:1) Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

(2 Thessalonians 2:2) That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

 (2 Thessalonians 2:3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

 (2 Thessalonians 2:4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Devider Line
Judas:

... and in John 17:12 there is another mention of "the son of perdition" which refers to Judas the disciple of Jesus.

(John 17:12) While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

Devider LineDevider Line
Only two characters in the whole Bible are referred to as "the son of perdition"... The disciple Judas - (John 17:12), and the Antichrist - (2 Thessalonians 2:3) - both worked from within the inner circle of Christ's body of believers and betrayed Christ.

Why do we Worship on Sunday and not on the Sabbath?

 

 

The reason churches today worship on Sunday is because in 321A.D. Constantine the Great established the observance of Sunday as a legal duty, enacting that all courts of justice, inhabitants of towns, and workshops were to be at rest on Sunday, "vernerable day of the sun", (venerabili die solis), with an exception in favor of those engaged in agricultural labor. ("Encyclopedia Britannica, 11th ed., art. "Sunday")

 

The Apostate Catholic Church papacy adopted this day of Sunday observance as well in order to bring pagan worshipers into the Christian church and to accommodate pagan religious practices, the culture of that time.  Sunday was the day which pagans practiced as their religious day of worship. They worshiped the Sun.

The Mark:

The Catholic Church has since made claim that the act of changing God's day of worship from Saturday to Sunday IS --> Their Mark <-- of authority over religious matters and shows that they can change the Laws of God.

What does the papacy say is her symbol, or mark, of authority?   Notice the following from the Catholic catechism and Catholic documents...(The catechism reads in a Question and Answer format)

Question: Have you any other way of proving that the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?"
"
Answer: Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with
her--she could not have
substituted the observance of Sunday the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority."  (1)

So the papacy is here saying that it changed Sabbath to Sunday and that virtually all churches accepted the new holy day. Thus,
the papacy claims that Sunday as a holy day is the mark, or symbol, of her power and authority.

“It was the Catholic church which...has transferred this rest to Sunday in remembrance of the resurrection of our Lord. Therefore the observance of Sunday by the Protestants is an homage they pay, in spite of themselves, to the authority of the (Catholic) church.” Monsignor Louis Segur, Plain Talk About the Protestantism of Today, p. 213.

“Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was her act...
And the act is a mark of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things.” H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons.

 

 

The Catholic Church itself admits that there is no directive from God anywhere in the Bible to change the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday.  This was done exclusively from the arrogance of Man and not God. 

 

 

(Daniel 7:25) And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

 

 

Thin Center Line

 

If Christians believe that Sunday is the new day of worship, how does one explain the text found in Isaiah 66:22-23? 

 

 

(Isaiah 66:22) For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.

(Isaiah 66:23) And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.

------------------- Even God says He Does not Change ------------------

(Malachi 3:6) For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

 

 

 

Why is it after the creation of the NEW heavens and the NEW earth, God asserts that all the redeemed will come to worship Him, month to month, on the Sabbath and not Sunday?  Just from a logical point of view, does it make sense that God would change the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday, then change it back again to worship all through-out eternity on the Sabbath?

He Shall Speak Great Words Against the Most High

 

(Daniel 7:25) And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

 

 

What does scripture mean when it says this Antichrist power will speak great words against the Most High?  What this means is that he will speak great words of blasphemy against God. 

 

(Revelation 13:6) And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

 

 

Blasphemy has two definitions in Scripture...

 

Blasphemy 1: Claiming to Forgive Sins:

 

(Luke 5:18) And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.

(Luke 5:19) And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus.

(Luke 5:20) And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

(Luke 5:21) And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone? .

 

 

What does the Papacy say about this?  Can the priest forgive sins?

 

 "Does the Priest truly forgive the sins, or does he only declare that they are remitted?"

"The Priest does really and truly forgive the sins in virtue of the power given to him by Christ." (Joseph Deharbe, S.J., A Complete Catechism of the Catholic Religion (New York: Schwartz, Kirwin & Fauss, 1924), p. 279)

 

 

Blasphemy 2: Claiming to be God:

 

(John 10:30) I and my Father are one.
(John 10:31) Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
(John 10:32) Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

(John 10:33) The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

 

 

Does the Papacy claim to be God?

 

"We [the popes] hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty." (Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Letter "The Reunion of Christendom" (dated June 20, 1894) trans. in the Great Encyclical Letters of Pope Leo XIII (New York: Benziger, 1903), p. 304)

"The pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, but he is Jesus Christ, Himself, hidden under the veil of flesh."Catholic National, July 1895)

He will Blaspheme the Name of God

 

(Revelation 13:6) And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

 

 

 

What does it mean when scripture says this Antichrist power will blaspheme his name?  This means that the Antichrist system will blaspheme, smear and discredit the name, or Character of God.  One might ask, what is the name of God? 

 

Remember when Moses went up to Mount Sinai?  This was when God gave Moses the 10 Commandments.  Moses asked God a very interesting question.  Moses pleaded with God to show him His Glory.

 

(Exodus 33:18) And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

(Exodus 33:19) And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

(Exodus 33:20) And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

(Exodus 33:21) And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:

(Exodus 33:22) And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:

(Exodus 33:23) And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.

(Exodus 34:5) And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.

(Exodus 34:6) And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

(Exodus 34:7) Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

 

 

What are we seeing here by the description of God's glory?  We are seeing that the Character of God and His glorious character are His NameGod's Name is His Character and part of God's character is His mercy and justice.  Since God's name is His Character where else do you think we will see His character?  We can find His character in His 10 Commandments.  The 10 Commandments not only show God's Character and Name, but the 10 Commandments are also the Laws of His Government which protects His Heavenly beings.  All the attributes of the Name of God is the Heart of God, which is HIs Law.  This is why Satan Hates the Law of God.

 

The Roman Catholic Papacy has trampled upon and attacked the Character of God, and His Law.  Remember the 10 Commandments reflects God's Character and His Name.  So how has the Papacy attacked God's Character? 

 

The Catholic papacy brought into the church many false doctrines, one of which is the doctrine that we go directly to Heaven or Hell when we die. This false teaching embraces the notion that we are already immortal and because of this implication, the church teaches that the wicked are tortured by God in Hell Fire for Eternity. This doctrine is NOT Biblically correct.  The belief that we are already immortal is the same lie that Satan told Eve in the Garden of Eden.  Also the false doctrine that God tortures those who reject Him for Eternity, is not true and is Biblically incorrect.

 

(Genesis 3:4) And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

The Roman Catholic Papacy also tried to change God's Law by doing the following...

 

NOTE:

Notice what Jesus says in Matthew 5:18 about the Law of God (the 10 Commandments)

King James Version: (Matthew 5:18) For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

New Living Bible Version: (Matthew 5:18) I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not even the smallest detail of God's law will disappear until its purpose is achieved.

Devider Line
Here is what the Roman Catholic Church did to God's Commandments.

The Catholic Papacy removed the 2nd Commandment, i.e. not to worship idols, from the Catholic Catechism;

They then divided the 10th Commandment into two commandments  to make up for the removal of the 2nd Commandment. This was done to reflect the correct number of commandments for the 10 Commandments

They also changed the day of worship from the Sabbath, Saturday to Sunday observance. (i.e. From the Original Fourth Commandment)

God's Mark and Seal of Authority

 

 

So if the Catholic Church claims their Mark of authority is Sunday and your worship on this day shows that you are giving the Catholic Church authority in your life then what is God's Mark of Authority?  Good question!

 

Let's take a look at what the Mark or Seal of God is...  We get a hint from Exodus 31:13, Ezekiel 20:12 and Ezekiel 20:20....

 

 

(Exodus 31:13) Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.

(Ezekiel 20:12) Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.

(Ezekiel 20:20) And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God.

 

 

 

God's Seal and God's Sign

 

Let's see what Strong's Hebrew and Greek Dictionary says the word Sign means...

 

Strong's Hebrew and Greek Dictionary
H226
- Sign
oth

Probably from H225 (in the sense of appearing); a signal (literally or figuratively), as a flag, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, etc.: - mark, a distinguishing mark, oath, miracle, (en-) sign, token.

H2856
- Seal
A primitive root; to close up; especially to seal: - make an end, mark, seal (up), stop.

 

 

 

God's Seal or Mark

 

 

Now God doesn't just tell us that His Sabbath is a sign or seal between Him and His creation, he also places His personal seal in a very interesting place...  in the 4th commandment of His Law,  The Ten Commandments.

 

Just as a president, king or diplomat of a nation has a seal, so does God.  An official seal has three elements... A person's name, their title or office and the territory over which they have rule. 

 

So the seal of the president of the United States looks like this...


Name: Donald Trump
Title or Office: President
Area or Territory of rule: The United States of America                                   

 

 

Now let's look at God's seal which can be found in the middle of His Law,  The Ten Commandments.  God's seal is found in the 4th commandment which relates to the Sabbath, and interestingly, this commandment starts with the word Remember, because God knew we would forget... I will mark in Red His Name and Title... and will mark in Blue, God's territory.

 


Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9: Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work; 10: but the seventh day is a sabbath unto Jehovah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11: for in six days Jehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Jehovah blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it..

 

 

 

So the seal of God looks like this...

Name: Jehovah - or God
Title or Office:
Jehovah Made  i.e. Creator
Area or Territory of rule: Heaven, Earth and Sea and ALL that are in them.

 

 

 

 

God's Mark and Sign of Authority is our observance and worship of Him on His declared holy day of worship, which is the Sabbath, or Saturday.  God has declared this in His 4th Commandment.  True worship of God is Not on the papal substituted day of rest, Sunday.  Sunday is the Catholic Church's mark of authority, not God's.

 

 

(Exodus 31:16) Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

Webster's New World Dictionary: Perpetual
1) lasting or enduring forever or for an indefinitely long time; eternal; permanent 2) continuing indefinitely without interruption; unceasing; constant
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Ezekiel 32:17) It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

God, the creator of the universe, put His
Mark and Seal in the heart of His Ten Commandments to show that He, God alone, wrote them and not man. 

The Sabbath, which is God's MARK of authority, shows He has authority over Mankind and the universe..

 

 

Now before you misunderstand that the scripture in Ezekiel 32:17 only applies to the Jewish nation, look at what is said in Galatians 3:26-29...  If we are in Christ, we are heirs according to the promise given to Abraham... Just like the Jewish Israelites.

 

(Galatians 3:26) For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
(Galatians 3:27)
For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
(Galatians 3:28) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. .
(Galatians 3:29) And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

 

 

 

 

Most Christians do not realize they are not keeping all of God's commandments because they are not worshiping on the Sabbath day which God has commanded us to keep.  Remember, the 4th commandment starts with the word "Remember".  But we've forgotten and chosen to follow the substituted day of worship Sunday.  We've changed our allegiance and are unknowingly breaking the Law of God.

 

The Sabbath is not just for the Jews... The Sabbath was instituted and hallowed on the Seventh Day of Creation by God Himself.  Remember, Jesus himself worshipped on the Sabbath as did His apostles after the death of Jesus.  It wasn't till Constantine the Great made the change in 321AD that the Christian church started worshipping on Sunday. 

 

Thin Center Line

Note: At first I didn't think the Sabbath vs Sunday was such a big deal, at least not until I studied it and Jesus revealed it to me..

 

Churches today teach that we live in the time of the New Covenant, which we do, since Christ died on the Cross of Calvary for our sins... 

 

The church also states that the Law of God, or 10 Commandments were nailed to the cross and their importance isn't as significant as in the Old Testament days... This is not true!  The Law of God, the Ten Commandments, are always binding  and will be the plumb line God uses to judge His creation.  Remember, the Law of God displays the government of God and His True Character.  We as Christians show we love God by trusting in Jesus and Keeping His Commandments

 

 

(Proverbs 28:9) He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.

 

 

What was nailed to the cross were the Jewish Ceremonial Laws of sacrifice, not the 10 Commandments.  Remember, at the death of Christ on the cross, the veil in the temple that divided the two apartments, the Holy from the Most Holy place, was torn from top to bottom by God showing that Christ was the final and fulfilled sacrifice for the sins of the world.

 

(Matthew 27:50) Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

(Matthew 27:51) And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

 

It looks like we are willing to keep 9 of the laws, but the one commandment the church wishes to dispose of is the Sabbath Commandment.  Remember, if we break just one of the Commandments, it's as if we broke them all.  Satan knows this, but we've forgotten.  Notice the following scriptures, which are all from the New Testament. 

 

(James 2:10) For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
(Matthew 15:9) But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
(John 14:15) If ye love me, keep my commandments.
(1 John 2:3) And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
(1 John 2:4) He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
(1 John 5:3) For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

(Revelation 12:17) And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. (See Revelation 19:10)

(
Revelation 19:10) And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

 

 

 

Satan hates the 10 Commandments because it displays the Heart of God, God's Character, God's Glory, God's Name and God's Government.  Satan wants to destroy the Law of God and is trying to hide it from God's creation so that we will break God's Law.  Satan is going after the Heart of God to destroy His Law.  Satan believes by destroying and usurping the Law of God, he will be able to take control of God's kingdom.

 

Remember, without the Law, we would not know what sin is.  The Law shows us we are sinners and in need of a savior, so the Law points us to Jesus as our Savior.  Do away with the Law, and you do away with Jesus.

 

The Old Testament book of Daniel is crucial in understanding the book of Revelation... so if anyone says the Old Testament is of no importance today since Christ died on the cross, they do not know of what they speak and are speaking from deception.

On a side note, just as God revealed this to me, He will also reveal this truth to you as well if you have any doubts.  What is written on this page is truth and if you are open to the leading of the Holy Spirit, you will understand just how much God loves you because He has led you to this truth.  You will also have an understanding of what is meant in Revelation 1:3 when it states that you will be blessed by reading and understanding the book of Revelation.

 

(Revelation 1:3) Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

In the final days before Jesus returns, mankind will have to make a decision of who they will give their allegiance to and who has authority over Mankind and religious matters...  Either worship of God on His Sabbath, or the Apostate Catholic Papacy day of worship of Sunday... and just like in the Babylon of old, Satan himself is in the background running this apostate system.  This will be a litmus test of who you trust for your salvation and who has true authority over you. (I.E. Satan or God)

 

Now I want to go on record saying that I am not judging my Catholic brothers and sisters, but rather leveling charge against the Apostate Roman Catholic papal System which put itself in the place of Jesus and controls the Catholic church.  I have friends who are Catholic and even my sister was Catholic. So know I love my Catholic brothers and sisters, I just reject the Catholic Church substitution of Christ for their Apostate papal System and False doctrines and practices.

 

 

666 - What is This and What Does This Mean?  

 

(Revelation 13:18) Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

 

 

In the Catholic church, the Pope has the title: "Vicarius Filii Dei" which in Latin means Vicar of the Son of God.  If you translate each letter of the Pope's title into its Roman numeral equivalent, the sum of the letters equals 666.  Remember, this is the number of a man.  This man is the Pope, or as a whole, the papal system.

 

V = 5
i = 1
c = 100
a = 0
r = 0
i = 1
u = 5
s = 0
-------------------
112


F = 0
i = 1
l = 50
i = 1
i = 1
-------------------
53


D = 500
e = 0
i = 1
-------------------
501


If you add all the letter together the grand total equals 666.

Please do Not Worry --- Yet!  

 

Now before you worry that you have already received the Mark of the Beast because you attend church on Sunday, you have to understand that this FUTURE mark will be LEGISLATED and ENFORCED by civil government. 

 

The Bible states that you can receive this mark in two places.  Either on your hand, which means through your actions of Sunday observance...  OR on your forehead... i.e. Through the belief in your mind or heart that the Catholic Church has authority over salvation.  In other words, you believe that salvation is attained through the Catholic Church along with diverging religious beliefs such as works, or by being good... and NOT through Jesus alone.

 

In other words, you will go along with the Roman Catholic papal day of Sunday observance rather then worshiping God on His declared day of worship, Saturday?  This litmus test will show who you give your Authority to for your salvation.

 

We are not yet at the Mark of the Beast timeframe in Human history but there will come a future time where you will not be able to buy or sell unless you show allegiance to this apostate Antichrist system.  This allegiance will be world wide and your acceptance will show who has authority over you.  Will it be Satan or Jesus Christ. 

 

 

       Sunday Observance will be Legislated --- Where as -- Sabbath Worship will be Prohibited.

 

 

Will you serve Man's observance of worship or God's chosen day of worship?  This is a very important matter and God is serious about His day of worship that He has set aside and made holy.

 

 

(Revelation 13:16) And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

(Revelation 13:17) And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
 

 

 

Here is a fact most people do not know...  Numerous States in the United States have on their books what are called Sunday Blue Laws.  These laws are designed to enforce religious standards, particularly the observance of Sunday as a day of worship or rest, and places restrictions on Sunday business practices.   These laws are on many State books, not to be voted on, but rather have already been passed but are not currently being enforced to date.  Remember, no civil government has the authority to legislate or force anyone to worship on ANY day, Sabbath included.

Looking at today's political and religious heretical climate, this day isn't too far off in the near future.  Who do you now give your authority to, God or Satan?

 

The Three Angels Message - Come out of her My People

So what must we do to make sure we are ready for the events about to be unleashed onto Mankind?  God says, "It's Time" to draw closer to Him and He wants His people to move into a more intimate relationship with Him so that we are able to stand in the days ahead. 

 

God is also calling His people to come out of Babylon and the Apostate Religious practices found in the Catholic and most Protestant churches today.

Important!

 

The Three Angel's Messages are God's last message to us. Theses messages are meant to be a dividing line for God.  He is saying that it is time to stop being a nominal Christian and choose sides.  Are you going to worship and honor God as He has instructed in His 10 Commandments, or are you going to worship God as man sees fit. 

 

Now before you think that we are saved by keeping the 10 Commandments, we are not. We are only saved by our faith in Jesus and His finished work on the cross.  Followers of Christ in the Last Days, will keep the commandments of God because they love God, not because they are attaining salvation by keeping the Law.

 

Even though we are not yet at the crossroads of the Mark of the Beast, we are all still accountable for the truths found in this document.  What are you going to do with this new truth?

 

The warnings of the "Three Angels' Messages" are forcing us to choose sides because God is about to close time as we know it.  It is best to chose now whom you will serve.  Whose side will you stand on?  Human history is about to close.

(Revelation 18:4) 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.

(Revelation 18:5) For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
 

 

 

 

Do not be fooled or deceived.   We do NOT receive salvation from being a member of ANY church.   NO man or church has the power to forgive your sins.  Only Jesus can.   God's presence is through the Holy Spirit on this Earth NOT the papal System of the Roman Catholic church.  Now I'm sorry that these statements may offend some, but they are the truth.

 

We are to seek God with all our hearts, mind and soul by reading His scriptures.  We need to sincerely seek a relationship with God.  By moving closer to Jesus and worshiping on God's terms and not mans, we can procure God's protection and guiding hand in our life.  If your current walk with Jesus is lukewarm or you have settled into a sleepy comfort zone of tradition, I suggest you re-evaluate where you are with God.  The troubled times coming dictate the necessity of a closer walk with Christ. 

 

Please do not be fooled, perilous times are racing towards this planet, and the soon imminent return of Jesus is closer than we think, will you be ready?  Who's side are you on?
