The First Angel
Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people. And he said with a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water.” – Revelation 14:6-7
The duty to worship God is based upon the fact that He is the Creator and that to Him all other beings owe their existence. And wherever, in the Bible, His claim to reverence and worship, above the gods of the heathen, is presented, there is cited the evidence of His creative power. – Lift Him Up, p.51
Seventh-day Adventists have the unique, prophetic calling to proclaim in words and actions the Three Angels’ Messages to the entire world in preparation of the Second Coming of Jesus. The foundation of the Three Angels’ Message is the everlasting gospel. The good news that Jesus is your Salvation. By receiving Him with living faith, you receive cleansing of, and victory over sin, and life eternal.
The first angel’s message can be summarized like this: God is Your Creator. That’s why you are loved and desired by Him and have no need to worship self or any form of idol. As His creation and in response to His love, you are enabled to reflect His loving character, especially now as we are living in the days of the judgment.
Will you take hold of your end-time identity in Jesus and let Him live out His life within you? Do you trust that this intimate relationship with Jesus can give you confidence in the judgment?
- Pray for God to be glorified in your life as your Creator and Redeemer.
- Pray for a clearer understanding of your end-time identity in Jesus.
- Pray that God help you know in Whom you can safely place your confidence in this time of judgment.
- Pray for our brothers and sisters who are living in areas of governmental conflict and religious suppression.
- Pray about how you can support believers in this part of the world.
