Second Angels Message

10. Reformation within the Church

By John Thiel, Audio: mp3

Through the studies of the second angel’s message we have focused on Babylon, because that is what the message was, Babylon is fallen. We have seen the harlot, the woman / church that became corrupt and rejected the first angel’s message which was trying to restore her, the church of Sardis. As we studied into the babylonish title, we also beheld that Rome was Babylon, the Mother of harlots, with the Protestants being the daughters, and the United States of America being the apostate Protestant nation, and the dragon being paganism. We looked into the New Age movement of today, which is a mingling of paganism with all these other ingredients so that we have a new movement of enlightenment, as the people call it.

7. Sunday Laws (Second Angel)

By John Thiel, Audio: Sunday Laws

We have studied how Sunday has come into existence as a day of worship in ancient Babylon and thereafter.  Also how the Babylonish churches have developed a strong stand that they would make laws in reference to Sunday. In the third angel’s message we will see how those Sunday laws will be enacted.

Revelation 13:10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 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. 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. 13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,  Read the rest of this entry

8. Spiritualism

By John Thiel, Audio: mp3

In our quest of understanding the second angel we are looking now at the subject of spiritualism. The second angel’s message leaves you to puzzle as to where spiritualism comes into this. Read the rest of this entry

4. Papal Infiltration

By John Thiel, Audio: Papal Infiltration

Babylon is those who rejected the first angels message particularly in the USA.  What is apostate Protestantism? It is the religious side of the USA being Babylon. Protestantism and Republicanism are used by Satan to re-power the papacy and  the papacy is working behind the scenes. The papacy has infiltrated America so that America could be used to again restore the fatal wound that the papacy had received. The rejecters of the first angel’s message were announced as Babylon.

3. America’s Role in Prophecy

By John Thiel, Audio: Amercia’s Role in Prophecy

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.

This message applies after the first angel’s message has been given and the reaction of those who heard the first angel’s message which called forth the second angel’s message. They are addressed as Babylon. Babylon is fallen. Why the term Babylon?

Revelation 17:5 And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Read the rest of this entry

2. Apostate Protestantism

By John Thiel, Audio: Apostate Protestantism

Revelation 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Read the rest of this entry

9. The New Age Movement

By John Thiel, Audio: mp3

Spiritualism was the very motive of paganism. Ancient Babylon fell into spiritualism, and by rejecting the first angel’s message the United States of America, apostate Protestantism, commenced a path that would ultimately cause them to embrace spiritualism.

When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of Papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near. {5T 451.1} Read the rest of this entry

1. The Judgment Regarding Babylon

By John Thiel, Audio: The Judgement Regarding Babylon

The second angel’s message is necessary because the first angel’s message was not heeded. In rejecting the first angel’s message, a warning needed to be given in the second angel’s message – Babylon is fallen, is fallen that great city because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

5. Ancient Babylon

By John Thiel, Audio: Ancient Babylon

In our last study ‘Papal Infiltration and Domination’ what took place was not merely on a political or on a church organisational level but also on a personal level. There was a new modelling of the cause. That’s how it happened in the early Christian church. It was again repeated in the Protestant churches:

To secure converts, the exalted standard of the Christian faith was lowered, and as the result a pagan flood, flowing into the church, carried with it its customs, practices, and idols. As the founders, those who possessed the true spirit of reform, pass away, their descendants come forward and new-model the cause. While blindly clinging to the creed of their fathers and refusing to accept any truth in advance of what they saw, the children of the reformers depart widely from their example of humility, self-denial, and renunciation of the world. Thus the first simplicity disappears. A worldly flood, flowing into the church, carries with it its customs, practices, and idols. GC 384 Read the rest of this entry

6. Ancient and Current Practises of Babylon

By John Thiel, Audio: Ancient and Current Practises of Babylon

Under the second angel’s message Babylon is always applied to the people or the church having once been faithful becoming corrupt from Noah’s time right through. This message is appropriate for people in modern times as it was way back there. Ancient Babylon was the city that set the stage for all the others to follow. Rome today is still affected by the events of the past and also for the future. Ancient Babylon has affected the world all through history until now.

Their children, along with new converts, came forward and new-modelled the cause. To secure converts, the exalted standard of the Christian faith was lowered, and as the result a pagan flood, flowing into the church, carried with it its customs, practices, and idols.
