Father in heaven we thank you for bringing us out this morning. Thank you for a new day we thank you for the blessings that we have received this week I pray that you would speak through me now the message be clear and may we have agreed or understanding for the special move in the you have raised up that we have the privilege of been part of. So we thank you for the supper to need to learn more and be with us the prayer in Jesus' name and so we are continuing our study through the book of revelation here in our morning meeting. In Today the message is untitled the mystery of God finished now. We covered on Monday morning an overview of the sanctuary through the Book of Revelation and then we focus especially on the message of Jesus to the seventh church the Laodicean church on shoes day yesterday we'll look at the seals and what's taking place in the most holy place during the seals today we are going to look at what happens. During the Seventh Trumpet especially But what leads into the seventh trumpet so we're going to take a brief look at the trumpets as well as primarily Revelation Chapter two so the title of the message today is the mystery of God finished. Now it's helpful to have an understanding of the setting of Revelation chapter Tim this takes place Roy after the six trumpet ends and Revelation Chapter nine and it's before the sounding of the seventh trumpet in Revelation eleven verses fifteen through nineteen so what is the timing of the six trumpet if you. Stand fulfillment of prophecy this six trumpet in Revelation Chapter nine verse fifteen describes then it would come to an end after a rule of one hour one day one month and one year now. Before I go too much further into that. Just to give you a brief. Understanding of the trumpets and the reason why I say this is that there are some reinterpretation of the trumpets going on in the system now that are not particularly helpful and that do contradict inspiration. But the historic historicity understanding of the trumpets is that the first four trumpets that you read about in Revelation Chapter eight describe the judgments that God pours out upon the Western Roman Empire especially for its persecution of the saints we saw the persecution of the saints of the seals and then the trumpets the scribe the persecutor the the judgments the persecute the Saints receive so the fall of the Western Roman Empire takes place and for seventy six A.D. Then we see the rise of Mohammad and Islam in the fifth trumpet and we see that the fifth sixth and seventh trumpets are connected with the first second and third woes and so the fifth and sixth trumpets and the first and second world are connected to the Islamic scourge on the Eastern Roman Empire and we see that. The the fifth and sixth trumpets Colman they are the six trumpet culminates with this prophecy of reigning for one hour one day one month and one year now. This sets the timeframe for revelation. Josiah lich a miller right preacher published a study the accurately for told the fall of the Ottoman empire using the principles of historicism So this was a very interesting Ellen White quotes this in the book great controversy here we read in the year eight hundred forty another remarkable fulfillment of prophecy excited widespread interest in us alone why calls this a remarkable fulfillment of prophecy because there are some today who say Oh oh the to the traditional understanding of Adam to them about the fifth and sixth round but this is wrong we have a new enlightened view Ellen White calls it a remarkable fulfillment. And this is how she describes it to you years before just saw one of the leading ministers preaching the Second Advent published an exposition of Revelation nine predicting the fall of the Ottoman Empire so this is around eight hundred thirty eight according to his calculations this power was to be overthrown quote in eighty eight hundred forty sometime in the month of August in quote and only a few days previous to its accomplishment he wrote allowing the first period of one hundred fifty years to have been exactly fulfilled before DIA cozies ascended the throne by permission of the church and I better stop there because you may not know what that is referring to if you did not study the trumpets in on July twenty seven Schwalbe ninety nine. The. Ottomans first attacked. The. Eastern Roman Empire they entered into the territory in twelve ninety nine one hundred fifty years later in fourteen forty nine the Eastern Roman Emperor D.-A cozies asked permission of the Ottomans to take the throne what kind of a ruler are you if you need perm. Mission to be the king. So that's a fulfillment of prophecy in four hundred forty nine that's the end of the fifth trumpet beginning of the six trumpet so there's one hundred fifty years or five months for the trumpet the new you get to the six trumpet and that's the beginning of the one hour one day one month and one year so continuing it says. A lot in the first period a hundred fifty years of been exactly fulfilled before the expose these are some of the throne preparation of the church and that the three hundred ninety one years fifteen days commenced at the close of the first period it will end on the eleventh of August eight hundred forty when the Ottoman power in Constantinople may be expected to be written and this I believe will be found to be the case so you go July twenty seven twelve ninety nine she one hundred fifty years later that's fourteen forty nine and then you have this prophecy of one hour one day one month and one year now I don't have it all diagrammed out here on the Power Point But if you just add the numbers pretty quickly there's three hundred sixty days in a biblical year so one year is three hundred sixty days but if it's a day for a year now you have three hundred sixty years and then one month as thirty days so that's thirty years so now you've gotten from three hundred sixty to three hundred ninety a day is a year so now that gets you to three hundred ninety one an hour if you do the calculation you have twenty four hours in a day and if you do three hundred sixty divided by twenty four you get fifteen that's just a real quick math calculation three hundred ninety one years fifteen days well it just so happens if you start on July twenty seventh twelve ninety nine go one hundred fifty years later and now you're in july twenty seven fourteen forty nine and you add three hundred ninety one years and fifteen days to that time period that takes you to August eleventh eight hundred forty and guess what happens on August eleventh eight hundred forty Illinois is very kind of receive three thirty five am at the very time specified chirk E. through her ambassadors except of the protection of the allied powers. Of Europe and thus placed herself under the control of Christian nations notice the bold statement the then exactly fulfilled the prediction on August the of an eight hundred forty. The church they where they were in trouble they were under pressure they were being attacked by Egypt and they needed protection from the attacks of Egypt and so they asked for help from the European powers. And they received the help they turned over. Assistance so to speak they said were under your control and protection now on August eleventh eight hundred forty. When it became known multitudes were convinced of the correctness of the principles of prophetic interpretation adopted by Miller and his associates and a wonderful impetus was given to the advent movement and then of learning a position united with Miller both in preaching and I'm publishing his views and from eight hundred forty to eight hundred forty four the work rapidly extended now my personal conviction and belief is that the fall of the Ottoman Empire on August eleventh eight hundred forty then gives rise to the mighty Angelot of Revelation who comes down from heaven clothed with the clouds over a the setting of Revelation is eight hundred forty because this is when the miller right movement takes off you have this fulfillment of the prophecy of the Ottoman Empire at the very same time William Miller preaches at the chart in St chapel in Boston Massachusetts and the mover and shaker of the Miller right movement known as Joshua Hines meets William Miller and he's not a mover and shaker yet but he we've meets William Miller and he hears the message preached and he says Do you really believe what you are preaching. And William one of those Of course I do you have been preaching with since eight hundred thirty one then and Joshua Haim says then why are you so not strategic in your preaching of this message you're just going from small church to small church in the big city seven even heard this message so Joshua Hines affectively became the general manager of the Advent movement at that point and then you had all of these newspaper spawning off you had the signs of the times in the midnight cry and you had newspapers in New York and Philadelphia and other places that got the message out there so this fulfillment of the fall of the Ottoman Empire coincided with the message taking off. Recent books of discard of this prophecy some teach the doesn't speak teach a specific time prophecy but just a specific hour bell and why it calls a remarkable fulfillment of prophecy and she says the event exactly fulfilled the prediction and there's been some good study on this recently as well by some scholars if you're interested I can talk to you about it later. Now some make the argument who say Josiah Lidge discarded his understanding of this prophecy and he's the one who came up with it in the first place and you know what he also discarded his belief of the twenty three hundred days are we going to throw the twenty three hundred days because of soil it's discarded as a view of the twenty three and it is obviously not the servant of the Lord gives us a higher understanding of the importance of this prophecy despite the fact that the original messenger threw it out now let's that's the stage for Revelation Chapter ten. Eight hundred forty This is what I believe the mighty angel comes down we see in Revelation Chapter ten verse one and I saw another mighty will come down from heaven clothed with a cloud in a rainbow was upon us a and this face was as it were the sun and his feet as pillars of five this mighty. Angel comes down from heaven I think we know that this mighty angel is a Jesus Christ and we get this from comparing Scripture with Scripture we go back to Revelation chapter one which is at the beginning of the churches and we see very similar language to Jesus where we see that he is clothed with a garment that his head as white as snow. His hair is as white as snow His eyes are like flames of fire his feet burn like brass his voice sounds like many waters we saw on Monday that at the beginning of the seven trumpets we see Jesus as an angel with a sensor in his hand standing at the altar of incense and now that he is moving from the Holy Place to the most holy place he is the mighty angel so we see Jesus coming down from heaven what is taking place here in Revelation Chapter ten is so important that Jesus doesn't give this work to just any angel he the mighty angel comes down to do this work himself this is the time period of eight hundred forty and it is the time for the proclamation of the second coming of Jesus to the of the known world and this work is so important that Jesus himself comes down to oversee the guidance of this movement. We see that he is clothed with a cloud what is the significance of in clover the cloud and here's the thing everything that you see in this the scription describes an aspect of Christ's words that helps us to understand what he is doing he's a mighty angel coming down from heaven so this has the authority of Herman. And he's clothed with a cloud the pre-incarnate Christ was covered in the cloud over the most holy place in the earthly sanctuary go to Exodus Chapter thirteen versus twenty one and twenty two as the first verse that we're going to look at Exodus Chapter thirteen versus twenty one and twenty two and here we read in the Lord. Went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud to lead them the way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them why to go by day and night he took not away the pillar of the clouds by day nor the pillar of fire by night from before the people so you see saying sure where we language when describing Christ clothed with a cloud so the first thing that you see if this might be Angelo who meets the specifications of Jesus Christ is clothed with a cloud it takes you back in your mind to the sanctuary but not only that end of it is Chapter sixteen verse to you it's the Lord said in the Moses speaking to Aaron the brother that he come not at all times into the holy place now if you read the context this is the most holy place within the veil before the mercy seat the mercy sea is the Ark of the Covenant in the most full of ways there's no doubt of which is upon the ark that he die not for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat Now notice this this mighty angel is comes down from heaven he's clothed with a cloud that reminds us that there was the cloud above the sanctuary but not only that when he was covered with a cloud he was above the mercy seat in the most holy place so if you simply study this descriptive term to understand what Jesus is doing this tells you that the sanctuary message is coming back into relevance about the time of eight hundred forty and Jesus has the signs. To move into the most holy place above the mercy seat just as he was covered with a cloud back in the time of the Israelites in the wilderness Revelation ten is describing the movement of Jesus from the Holy Place to the most holy place not only is he clothed with a cloud. So there's a rainbow was upon his. Now what is the significance of this rainbow if we go to Genesis Chapter nine if you read verses nine through seventeen I'm not going to take the time to read all those verses the rainbow was a symbol of the covenant that God made with nowhere that he would not destroy the earth again by a flood so God uses a rainbow as a symbol of making a covenant. With us not the only time we see a rainbow in the Bible we see it here again in Revelation ten but it's not the only place even in the Book of Revelation that we see a rainbow so we see that a rainbow is used to make a covenant but we also find the rainbow in Revelation Chapter four verse three where you see a rainbow about the throne of God. So here's the thing Jesus is clothed with a cloud. And he was clothed with a cloud in the earthly sanctuary above the mercy seat but he also has a rainbow above his head meaning that he is going to ruin new the covenant with his people from his throne and if you remember the throne of Daniel seven verse nine has wheels of fire meaning that it can move so the cloud shows that Jesus is moving from the Holy Place to the most holy place that means the throne is going to move from the Holy Place to the most holy place and in the most holy place with that rainbow above his head and God is going to renew you the covenant with his people. What is this covenant Hebrews Chapter eight verses ten through thirteen he rich after ten verses sixteen and seventeen you can also find it in the book of Jeremiah let me read to you what the covenants and Hebrews eight ten through thirteen. For this is the covenant that I will make with the House of Israel after those they see if the Lord I will put my a was into their mind and write them in their hearts and I will be to them again. And they shall be to me a people and they shall much teach every man his neighbor and every man his brother saying no the Lord for all shall know me from the least to the greatest for I will be merciful to their own righteousness and their sins and their iniquities will remember no more in that he see if the new covenant He hath made the first will now that which decay with and works with all those ready to vanish away so God is renewing the covenant the the rainbow as a symbol that he is renewing the covenant with his people and the cloud shows that he's moving from the Holy Place to the most holy place the throne is moving for the holy place of the most holy place he's renewing a covenant with that covenant is the law of God and it just so happens that in below the mercy seat in the ark of the Covenant in the Old Testament the tables of stone containing the law of God were in the ark of the covenant. Now it would only make sense that the covenant would be removed renewed if you're moving from the holy place of the most away place because that's where the ark of the Covenant is now when Jesus moves. From the Holy Place to the most holy place to remind his people of his covenant and of his law wouldn't make sense. That there would be a renewal and an understanding of the Sabbath. Because the fourth commandment in the ten says Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy the Sabbath had been forgotten. Over all those centuries and the great falling away in the Great Apostasy the Sabbath had been forgotten so it's amazing if you just look at the language in Revelation Chapter ten Jesus sees the my being will he's coming down from Heaven with the authority of heaven chew raise up a new movement just as God raised up the movement of the is realized to go from Egypt to Canaan Jesus coming down from Heaven with the stamp of the authority of heaven to raise up a new movement to take it from spiritual Egypt a spiritual Canaan and he does so by using the sanctuary the way he did with Israel of all he's covered with a cloud indicating that you will find Jesus in the most holy place the throne is moving with him a rainbow is above his head meaning he is going to renew the covenant and that covenant is his law that he is going to write in our hearts and minds and us and the south of is especially the sign of that covenant because the Sabbath is the sign that God has sanctified us and made us into holy people from the most holy place so you can see that Jesus is raising up the Seventh Day Adventist movement people who keep the Sabbath and understand the sanctuary message based on their understanding of what Jesus is doing from the most holy place and we haven't even finished verse one is this is how we need to study the Bible so revelation. Talks about the mystery of God being finished Revelation eleven nineteen talks about when the seventh trumpet sounds you see in a simple the archivists Testament that's the most holy place when. The Sabbath or when the covenant is renewed. The mystery of Goddess finished in the sanctuary is cleanse. Not only that we see that his face shone as it were the sun. Molokai Chapter four verse two describes Jesus as the Sun of Righteousness who arises with healing in his wings I like that verse and it connects very well the raising the right arm God is raising up a movement. To proclaim the righteousness of Christ's and to proclaim the healing message and that's coming from the most holy place God raised up the Second Advent movement to raise a pariah just people who are also healthy people. Will make sense. Gods of the Israelites if you follow me I will put on you none of the diseases I place the Palm the Egyptians that's the message from the most holy place now we live in a world of sin and sometimes things happen sometimes perhaps before we come into the faith and we may have consequences from choices we've made before we came came in and God is merciful to us and he takes us where we are and we we follow him but Jesus is the son of righteousness so Jesus came to raise up a movement. Chew lead this movement to the righteousness of Christ so that we will shine like the song. The righteousness of Christ is to be seen as brightly as the sun is seen Jesus is the son of righteousness so what we see in verse one of Revelation Chapter ten is that Jesus has come down from Heaven with the authority of heaven to raise up a new movement and it's based on an understanding that he is moving to the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary because he's clothed with a cloud and the rainbow is above his head meaning that the throne is coming with him and he's going to renew the covenant which is his law which is written in our hearts and minds and in that law is the Fourth Commandment especially which had been forgotten so he raises up the Second Advent movement to help the world remember that the Fourth Commandment the seventh day being the Sabbath had been forgotten and the Sabbath is important because the Sabbath is a sign of our holiness as of he pool which is what God is working to produce from the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary. So just from Revelation Chapter ten verse one you see the rise of the Second Advent movement and the setting for that is in the time period of eight hundred forty where the fall of the Ottoman Empire. Was very powerful and I don't know about you but I think that's pretty powerful but it was one Bible verse but that's not it let's keep this feeder as pillars of fire we see that we already read Exodus thirteen the pillar of club out in the pillar of fire by night was over the most holy places just reinforce this. Leading a new movement to heaven through the most holy place in the heavenly sanctuary now we move on to verse to. Revelation chapter chambres want to scribe the movement of Jesus into the most holy place of the sanctuary but in verse two we see that he had it in his hand a little book opened now wouldn't it make sense that the little book that is open in the hand of this my being jewel would be describing what we just saw in verse one which is Jesus moving from the Holy Place to the most holy place what book that had been closed has now been open to understand that Jesus is moving from the Holy Place to the most holy place as the Book of Daniel now some of the Book of Daniel had been understood for centuries but it's the portion of the Book of Daniel had that had been sealed specifically the vision of the evening in the morning or the vision of the twenty three hundred days. If you understand how to prove verse one and the rise of the Advent movement it becomes very easy to see how Rome Revelation ten verse two in the little book that's been opened is referring to the Book of Daniel Not only that you see that because the Sixth Seal ended in one thousand forty the twenty three hundred Days of Daniel eight fourteen takes us to eight hundred forty four So certainly that prophecy has great relevance for the timing of Revelation Chapter ten and based on verse one which is all about moving from the holy place of the most holy place yes you would expect to find a prophecy in scripture that would identify the timing of the cleansing of the sanctuary that's what Jesus is opening to the understanding of the world because he sets his right foot upon the sea and his left foot on the earth announcing that this is a worldwide movement Daniel eight fourteen and in two thousand and three hundred days than Shall the sanctuary be clones this is a worldwide message not only was William Miller preaching this message in the two hundred mil right preachers throughout America but you had Joseph Wolfe over in Europe and you had others throughout the rest of this world this message hit the world at that time friends we aren't following cunningly devised fables Adventism isn't an excuse to make up for the disappointment. Advent is as true as God is the living now when you go to verses three and four there's a description of the seven thunders he was about to write down what the seven thunders so than than he was told to not write them in bubble commentary volume seven pigeon and seventy one L M Y has a few things to say the mighty angel who instructed John was no US a personage than Jesus Christ so to his right foot on the sea and his left foot upon the dry land shows the part which he is acting in the closing scenes of the great controversy with Satan this position denotes a supreme power and authority over the whole earth the controversy is stronger and more determined from age to age and will continue to do so to the concluding scenes when the masterly working of the powers of darkness shall reach their heights Satan united with evil men will deceive the whole world in the churches he received not the love of the truth but the mighty and will demands attention he cries with a loud voice he is the show the power and authority of his voice to those who have united with Satan to oppose the truth. Now Revelation ten versus five or seven. We read in the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand. And swear by him that liveth forever and ever who created heaven and the things that there are in the earth and the things that they're in are and the see in the things which are there in the there should be time no longer. If you run into someone who has come up with a new understanding of prophecy where you have prophetic Days turned into literal days. Where the twelve sixty in the twelve ninety in the thirteen thirty five are now literal days from the Sunday law until the death the Korean on the second coming and all the economists the. They are in the contradiction to Jesus who swore by an oath now in Hebrew six it says God because he could swear by no greater somewhere by himself when he made an oath with Abraham and here Jesus the mighty Angela who is God because he could swear by no greater he swear by himself and in the oath he says at this point there is time no longer Now if you understand Revelation Chapter ten this is Jesus moving from the Holy Place to the most holy place the Earth did not come to an end I'm eight hundred forty four but the prophetic time periods did. There is no more prophetic time after October twenty eighth you eight hundred forty four until the second coming of Jesus when there is silence in heaven about the space of half an hour or so if you run into a well meaning brother or sister who is convinced that the twelve sixty in the twelve ninety and the thirteen thirty five or anything else is now literal days before the coming of Jesus they are in opposition to the mighty angel Jesus who swore by an oath but there is no more prophetic time. I don't want to go against Jesus who swarmed by and. And continuing. But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel when he shall begin to sound the mystery of God should be finished as he has the clarity of his servants the prophets Now notice this part of the earth he swore by him who created Heaven the earth the things that are there in that connects us to the first angels message worship Him that made heaven earth the sea in the fountains of waters that connects us to the fourth commandment for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth the sea and all that in them is and rest of the seventh day we see the Sabbath again we see it and the renewal of the Covenant in verse one we see it in God as Creator in verse six. So God as the creator there is no more prophetic time we see in verse seven that the mystery of God would be finished in the Advent movement we understand it already when you turn to Colossians one. So that you can see this verse kolache unstrapped your one. And I minister in verse twenty five where of I am made a minister according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you to fulfill the Word of God Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations but now is made manifest to his saints to whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles which is Christ in you the hope of glory. Jesus came down to raise up a movement who would be like him he didn't entrust this work to anyone else so he came down himself to raise up this movement as he's moving from the Holy Place to the most holy place he's raising up a movement through whom the mystery of God would be finished which is Christ in you the hope of glory and if you keep reading Colossians one verse twenty whom we preach warning every man in teaching every man and always them that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus where I also Laver striving according to his working which work with in me mightily. Christ in you this is worth talking about for a moment how does Christ come in. Elation stooge want to it's one of the most famous verses to me in the Bible. I am crucified with cries. Nevertheless I live yet not I but Christ liveth in me thus the mystery of God Christ and you the hope of glory and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me so when Christ comes in sin goes out and the life which I now live in the flesh I'm living the life of Christ by the faith of Jesus which is the third angel's message now if Christ is living in me am I living an obedient life or a disobedient life I'm living an obedient life by the faith of Jesus because he's written his law into my heart and mine which is the new covenant. So when Jesus renews the covenant he says here how here's how I'm going to renew the covenant with you you surrender to me I come into your heart and I will write my lawn to your heart and mine which is a transcript of my character so that your character will be a reflection of me and if you need grace and strength to get through the trials of wife since I'm living in you you can lean on me to exercise my faith through. Is the experience of the third angel. Not only that of fusions three verses sixteen through twenty one. So. That he would grant you according to the riches of His glory to be strengthened with by His Spirit in the inner man I notice for seventeen that Christ made well in your hearts by faith that ye being rooted and grounded in love may be able to comprehend with all saints What is the breadth and length and depth and height and she you know the love of Christ which pass with knowledge that you might be filled with all the fullness of ago. You want to be filled with all the fullness of God you know Colossians to know answers of Christ in him to wells all the fullness of the Godhood bodily. Now under him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that work within us under him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus world without in any man that's pretty powerful. Christ may dwell in your heart by faith. And you become then rooted and grounded in love you know again having Christ in you doesn't simply mean you've stopped doing bad things if you don't fill your life with the love of Christ those bad things are going to eventually come back and they're going to come back seven times stronger. I mean if you're just walking around saying Man I haven't done anything about it. I'm sensitive. If I haven't done it the you know you're rooted and grounded in the love of Christ and your communing with them and you don't have room for the bad things and I'm. John six fifty three through fifty six. Then Jesus said into them Verily verily I see him to you except you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood you have no wife in. Who so eat as my flesh and drink of my blood healthy churn a life and I will raise him up at the last day for my flushes me and my blood his drink and deed he that Edith my flesh and drink of my blood in me and I in Him we are in Christ Christ is and us eating the flesh and drinking the blood of the Son of Man means that you have a close intimate communion with Christ on a daily basis Christ in you the hope of glory isn't a one time once saved always saved a magical experience that gets you through the rest of your life you need to eat and drink every day to sustain life. And you're eating the flesh and drinking the blood of the Son of God doing his a whirl those who do His will are eating his flush and drinking his blood. Interesting Lee This connects to the Laodicean message Christ is standing at the door knocking saying if any man hear my voice and I open the door I will come and Him Christ in you with the hope of glory now when we let Christ come man that is the mystery of God finished when the mystery of Goddess finished Christ is in us we can overcome as he overcame which is the most of the way or to see and when that takes place we are now ready to be sealed with the seal of the Living God because those Colossians two says in Christ well all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. That is the purpose for the rise of the second. Notice review and herald a full twenty one eight hundred ninety one. The latter rain is the fall upon the people of. A mighty angel is the come down from heaven and the whole earth is the be lighted with His glory so we start off with a mighty angel in Revelation chan but now we see a mighty angel that's going to lighten the earth with his glory that's revelation eighteen one are we ready to take part in the glorious work of the third angel are our vessels ready to receive the heavenly do have we defilements and on the higher if so let us cleanse the sold some pool and prepare for the showers of the Latter Rain the refreshing from the presence of the Lord will never come to her it's filled with impurity May God help us to die to self notice that Christ the hope of glory may be formed within notice that when Christ the hope of glory is formed within that means that we have died to solve that means the soul simple has been cleansed and that means that the law to rain can fall upon the people of God so that revelation eighteen one can be fulfilled where the earth will be a light in with the glory of God's character Now think about it this way this is amazing to me Jesus comes down from heaven to raise up the Second Advent movement and he is the mighty angel and he moves from the Holy Place to the most holy place and the Second Advent movement starts off with a great power but you did you realize that the Second Advent movement is going to end with far greater power than it started with you want to know why because when the Second Advent movement comes to its completion you're not just going to have the my being will Jesus reflecting his character to the world you're going to have the advent movement filled with Jesus throughout the world. That's why Jesus raised the Second Advent. Man up so that his character will be seen throughout Adventism throughout the world and that will that will harmonize with the mystery of God being finished and yet there are many in the church today that say we can never really be like Jesus we can never really overcome sin we can never really stop sending God is never going to write his law to our hearts and minds and obedience is legalism anyway and we wonder why Jesus as income is God is waiting for a people who will allow the mighty angel Jesus to come in and for us to die just so that Christ the hope of glory may be formed within. When the mystery of God is finished the Second Advent movement be comes the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Jesus reveals Himself Yes Throughout the book of Revelation but the fourth the final fulfillment the alternate fulfillment of the Revelation of Jesus Christ is when the mystery of God is finished and Adventism so that the character of Christ is seen in Adam and. Let me read a statement to you. This is from great controversy page six all of. The great work of the gospel. Is not to close with lust manifestation of the power of the markets opening. The prophecies which were fulfilled in the outpouring of the former rain at the opening of the gospel are again to be fulfilled in the latter rain at its close here of the times a refreshing to which the apostle Peter looked forward when he said repent either for him be converted that your sins may be blotted out when the times are refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord initial Son Jesus that's X. three nineteen and twenty notice this next paragraph this is now Page Six twelve servants of God with their faces lighted up and shining with holy consecration will hasten from place to place to proclaim the message from heaven by thousands of voices all over the years the warning will be given miracles will be rot the sick will be healed a year that. When we have Jesus fully in our lives he's going to give us wisdom beyond what we have now to heal the sick. And signs and wonders will follow the believers see him also works with lying wonders even bring down far from heaven on the side of men thus the inhabitants of the earth will be brought to take their stand did you realize that the inhabitants of the Earth are going to be brought to take their stand because Satan is going to be working miracles through his side fire is going to be coming down from heaven but God is going to have his servants the hundred forty four thousand with their faces lighted up because the mystery of God has been finished in our lives doing the work of Christ performing miracles healing the sick doing medical missionary work. Because the mystery of God has been finished. But doesn't mean we shouldn't be doing it now. If you're not doing it now what makes you think you're going to be. Doing medical missionary work during the time of the loud cry is not just going to be saying hey did you know that Babylon is the anti-Christ and you know that's part of it because the angel from Revelation eighteen cries mightily with a strong voice that Babylon is the habitation of doubles so I mean it's going to be part of the message but it's not just a proclamation that Babylon is fallen it's also going to be a demonstration of the character of Jesus and it's not just not sinning it's also healing the sick and helping those who need the help of Jesus. That is the culmination of Adam tism the culmination of the prophetic rise of Adam to them is not a group that is not simply just a group who has stop sinning and yes that is part of it. We don't feel that we've reached that point because the closer we come to Jesus the more imperfect we feel in our own eyes but it's not just that it is also doing the works of Christ's that is what Will Coleman eight in the loud cry when the mystery of God is finished and Revelation eighteen becomes a reality friends you are part of a movement that Jesus himself raised. And God wants us to surrender everything in our hearts and in our lives so that he can use. To be his face to the world. And I believe that the time is coming very soon that we will have an opportunity to make a final decision on whose side we are on we are making a decision every day whose side we are on and the final moment is coming sooner than perhaps we realize.

So that the mystery of God us finished in my life no matter what is happening to anyone else around me stop making excuses for your unfaithfulness because your pastor or your favorite preacher or your friend down the street is there and things that are clearly against Council.

And may we be among those servants of God when the law to reign is poured out we will be those whose faces are lighted up hastening from place to place to proclaim the last message of warning to the world.
