This will be a masterclass on Revelation 14. We have seen polarizing politics, increased hate crimes, hunger for power, and the oppression of the poor. Is there a lasting solution to all of these problems? The Warning provides a framework for understanding that there is a day of reckoning and how you can be safe.
The book of Revelation presents the Gospel message being the good news of Jesus’ saving grace. That good news also comes in the form of a somber warning that there is an end coming where the world will be judged. God calls for each of us to be ready.
This is the third episode in the AWR masterclass series called Unlocking Bible Prophecies. You can follow the series and interact LIVE at:
Ten years ago, Cami Oetman had a real encounter with God that would change her life forever. She was a successful entrepreneur at the time, and the transition wasn’t easy. However, the truth Cami will share in this series was so compelling that she knew every human being in the world should experience the love of Jesus as she had.
Within three years, she had preached 350 Bible presentations. Today, as a vice president for Adventist World Radio, Cami travels the world documenting the miracles that take place when people give their hearts to Jesus.
It may seem difficult to imagine yourself understanding Bible prophecy.
Cami couldn’t either. She had spent two decades in the modeling world — in front of and behind the camera. She had also used her master’s degree in social work to care for hospice patients. She then started a successful retail business. But no one can predict how they will react when they have a real experience with God!
Do you seek relief from the things that you’ve done wrong? Are you searching for peace in place of anxiety and fear? You’re not alone. In this look at what God says about the end of time, you’ll leave your fears behind and find new hope in God’s love for you!
God has often sent warnings before disasters strike. Inspired by God, Noah warned of a worldwide flood that destroyed the earth just as Joseph forewarned Pharaoh of a devastating famine. And God has sent another warning to you and me to prepare for the end of time.
In Revelation 14:6-9, we find this final message of warning. The good news is that it is wrapped in God’s love for us. It is known as the “everlasting gospel.” A message reminding us that God willingly let His only son be put to death to pay for our sins.
How encouraging! Though we must face God’s judgement, He has provided a way to ensure our forgiveness through Jesus! And this forgiveness also opens the door for eternal life with Him in heaven!
The first angel gives the warning to “fear God” and to “give glory to Him.” These instructions show our need to obey God’s law and to follow His teachings for how to live our lives. (See Ecclesiastes 12:13 and 1 Corinthians 10:31)
Next, the angel turns to the issue of worship. You see, we live in an age where millions reject God as our Creator. In this message of warning, God is calling the world to worship him as our Creator God.
Why is this message so important? The angel says that “the hour of His judgement is come.” This indicates that God is doing the judging now. A time of investigation is taking place before Jesus comes so that He will know who gets the reward of eternal life. (See Revelation 22:12)
Could it be that we are living in this time of judgement? Is our future being decided by the choices we make today? This can be scary to think about, right?
The good news is that God has warned us ahead of time. We don’t need to be afraid. He wants us to be ready and has opened the way for us to have everlasting life!
The second and third angels focus on truth and error. Many people are being misled by following the false teachings of men rather than listening to God’s Word. The warnings of these two angels are some of the most serious in all of the Bible.
Don’t worry. In upcoming videos, we will look into the meaning of Babylon and the Mark of the Beast. Just remember that God’s Word is our source of safety and of truth! (See John 17:17)
The key takeaway from this final warning is that you can be prepared to stand before God in this judgement. Through the messages of the three angels, God has provided a way for the world to be ready when He returns to earth.
God is preparing a group of people who will worship Him as Creator. They will obey Him because they love Him. And this group of individuals will stand up for Jesus no matter what happens.
Have you come to a place where you want to give your life to God? Do you want forgiveness, peace, and the assurance of God’s love? Take this moment and give Him your heart!
