11. The Battle of Armageddon

By John Thiel, Third Angel’s Message, study 11, mp3

The seven last plagues are the outpouring of God’s wrath. We are looking at a particular component of those plagues – the battle of Armageddon. The message of the third angel deals with this very subject.

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, 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: Read the rest of this entry

12. The Old and the New Covenant

By John Thiel, First Angel’s Message, study 12, mp3

Jesus became a ransom to pay out the captives from sin and death. Though kidnapped and held in captivity to sin and to death by Satan, the ransom was paid to release us. The manner in which Jesus accomplished this was that he himself became a captive of the strong man. Jesus entered into the strong man’s house and he came into the captivity and was held in a body of sinful flesh. It was through this process that he was entombed into death but he broke the fetters of both these captivating forces. He broke the fetters of sin in the flesh and he broke the fetters of death because in him dwelt all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. Read the rest of this entry

14. The Sanctuary

By John Thiel, First Angel’s Message, study 14, mp3

In seeking to comprehend the first angel’s message we have been searching deep into the everlasting gospel to see what the first angel is preaching. We discovered previously that the first angel is actually the proclamation of our Lord Jesus Christ through the everlasting gospel.  In this study we explore the work of Jesus as the anointed one- the messiah through the sanctuary prophesies. Christ’s messiahship as the anointed one involved Jesus coming to this earth and carrying our His anointed work in atoning for the estranged sinful human race. This was revealed by God aforetime that we might have a sure hope in the prophecies of the everlasting gospel.  Read the rest of this entry

26 The Hour of God’s Judgement

By John Thiel, First Angel’s Message, study 26, mp3 

This study goes into the detail of what is involved in the hour of God’s judgement. In our previous studies we considered the first angels message because in it the angel preached the everlasting gospel.

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,   7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; 

We have learnt the meaning of what it means to give God the glory.  I want to enlarge the point of how to give God the glory so we can launch out into the understanding of the hour of his judgement is come. Read the rest of this entry

29. The Great Commission

By John Thiel, First Angel’s Message, study 29, mp3

Let us consider the great commission as it is written.

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen. 

This is the great commission.  Does the first angel’s message have anything to do with this commission? It’s obvious as the first angel’s message takes place at the end of the gospel period – the hour of God’s judgment is come.  Jesus says I am with you until the end of the world.  At the time of the end this message, this work of the commission is relevant under the first angel’s message. The great commission has everything to do with the first angel’s 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,   Read the rest of this entry
