Dear God in heaven what a wonder it has been to be here this week and we have sensed your Holy Spirit talking to us I have sensed it the Spirit of God talking to me and Lord we were hungry for more I've listened to the prayers of the pastors and others who have prayed just a few minutes ago praying that we would hear your voice talking to us and so we pray that again please father you know my my topic you know the message and I pray that you give me just the right words and if there's other words that I haven't planned on saying that you want me to say MAY YOUR WILL BE DONE speak to our hearts get us ready for what's coming and use us to help others to get ready for Jesus to return in Jesus' name we pray. All right this is going to be exciting Revelation Chapter 14 verse 9 is the beginning of the 3rd angel's message and actually I would like to just read the entire 30 angels message 149 says the 3rd angel followed them saying with what kind of a voice with a loud voice and that voice is going to get louder and louder and louder in this world Satan can't stop it he would love to shoot the 3 angels out of the sky but he can't do it these messages are from God They're in the Bible they're in the Book of Revelation and they are on stoppable. And we do well of to line up with the 3 angels if we do that we're on God's side the 3rd 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 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 that's the main thing that the lamp is right there in the middle of this fiery message and the smoke of their torment ascends up forever and ever and they have no rest day nor night some time ago I read that text no rest day or night for those that worship the beast and its image and whoever receives the mark of his name and it just impressed me that you know God If I'm not a beast worshipper or an image worshipper or someone who gets the mark of the Lord wants me to have a rest day and night and it's those who worship the beast in the image and get the mark they have no rest day or night so doesn't that imply that God wants us to have a rest of Soul day and night through our relationship with Jesus Jesus said Come to me and I will give you rest and then verse 12 says here is the patients of the saints here are they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus that is word for word the message of the 3rd angel. Now Revelation Chapter 18 verse one describes another angel coming down from heaven and as I've studied this and put the pieces together I've learned that the 3 angels messages are God's last message to go to the world and then the 4th Angel palms down in Revelation 181 during the Final Crisis and he comes down to give power to the 3rd angel and when White says that revelation 18 verse one says after these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven and he had great power and the earth was light and with His glory that's a wonderful text that my phone. This seems like that's a loud phone that going on to the speaker system or someone's cell phone OK Sorry about that how where was I. Revelation 181 you know we read that verse a lot haven't we many of us have and that verse is describing a final burst of light a final burst of light into the world that's going to come down with great power and light in the whole earth and that revelation 18 when Angel is connected to the 3rd angel and Ellen White says that the revelation $181.00 angel will come down and combine and give special power to the 3rd angel during the Final Crisis that's what she sets and it actually when you read Revelation 18 it combines part of the message with the 2nd angel about the fall of Babylon just recently I was thinking about the part that says the earth was light and with His glory and I thought about that word lightened and my mind went back to I think it's solemn 34 that says they looked to him and they were lightened and their faces were not ashamed. Remember that verse they looked to him and they were lightened and their faces were not a Shane So I wonder whether when Revelation $181.00 happens and the angel comes down and and the earth is a lightened with His glory I wonder if some of that lightning of the earth has to do with lightning people's faces because people's faces are lighting up because they're looking to him and they're being lightened and their faces were not ashamed I long to be part of that revelation 181 angel now let's go back to the 3rd angel and let me put some pieces together here the 3rd angel's message when you just read it as it is written it's very clear that the 3rd angel's message is a. And this is not politically correct when I'm about to say but it's exactly what the Bible says the 3rd angel's message is a warning of the wrath of the coming wrath of God upon those who worship the beast and his image and get the mark is that true I mean that's clear is day it says the 3rd angel followed them saying with a loud voice if any man worship the beast and his image and receives his mark in his forehead or in his hand the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God That's what the Bible says so it's a warning of the wrath of God that is coming upon those who worship the beast and his image and who get the mark. Right that's right there in plain English when you keep reading it you discover. That the wrath of God really is against the is against since of breaking His Law when you keep on reading it ends at in verse 11 with those personal leaven says talks about who ever receives the mark of his name so at the end of verse 11 is the warning about the mark and then verse 12 says here is the patience of the saints here are they that keep the commandments of God in the faith of Jesus so in my in my mansion list of meetings I show to people very clearly that verse 11 talks about those who get the mark and verse 12 talks about those who keep the commandments ultimately the wrath of God that is coming against those who worship the beast in the image and who get the mark is the wrath of God against sin of breaking His Law. The law of God is right there in the middle of the 3rd angel's message and if you really think about this and I've just you know I've been pondering the 3 the 3rd angels message many many times I know it by heart I've READ IT AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN and if you just really think about it verse 9 says the 3rd angel followed them saying with a loud voice if any man worship's the beast and his image which commandment is being broken there 1st one and probably the 2nd one. Both of them the 1st Commandment says You shall have no other gods before me and the 2nd commandment says don't make any idols don't bow down to any any idols and those who worship the beast and his image are violating the law of God They're breaking the 1st Commandment instead of worship being God alone there worshipping the beast. And the image of the beasts this is idolatry isn't it it's idolatry it's breaking the law of God and when the 3rd angel then warns about the mark of the beast which commandment is being violated there we should all know the answer to that commandment number 4 right because the mark of the beast has to do with the changing of the 7th day sabbath into the 1st day of the week and eventually that change being in forced by law in force Sunday keeping around the world so that nobody can buy or sell unless it goes along with the mark of the beast is the in force mint of the violation of the Law God So not only are people breaking the law but then you have governments forcing people to go along with Sunday so the whole context of the 3rd angel's message is the law of God and judgments coming against those who break God's law now I'm my little book on the 3 angels messages and I have a presentation on this where I put a lot of pictures on the screen I have decided not to use my Keynote slides during this meeting it's just me and the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy but I want to share a few headlines that have been just within the last few years I don't know if you're aware of this I'm assuming most of you are but there's a lot of chatter. There's a lot of buzz going on in the media in reference to Sunday and getting back to those old Sunday laws are you aware that a lot of discussion going on and I've just got in this little book God's final warning I have the headlines that are linked to articles such as this article from The Associated Press which is called keeping stores open on Sunday is not beneficial for society says Pope Francis you can read the whole article where Pope Francis is pushing for Sunday like he thinks that it's just terrible that stores are open on Sundays he thinks that's totally contrary to family and our spiritual lives and he builds his case which is quite Eroni is that Sunday should be enforced by law that's what Francis really wants to see happen and this has been reported in the media Here's another one in an article in The Guardian The title is called Slow sudden day the simple solution to global warming have you heard about all the climate change chatter you know whenever you have a big disaster people are saying it's climate change. Climate change global warming because of all the carbon dioxide in the pollution that this industrial world is sending up into the environment the theory is that that carbon dioxide is warming the planet and because of the warming of the planet we're seeing more weather related disasters and Pope Francis is putting forth a solution and others are talking about it that if we would all just stop working one day a week think of how much less pollution would go up into the environment and that would help with global warming and that would help to counteract all of the disasters and there'd be less disasters so they're building Sunday into the arguments. Concerning climate change and that's happening right now here's another article from Fox News this is a headline let's make Sunday a day of rest for God's sake here's another one from a a European publication called the Parliament that the headline was Sunday work is a danger to our health and our safety Here's another one from A.B.C. News and German court enforce this day of rest talking about Sunday laws in Germany and there are Sunday laws in Poland there are some good laws in Italy sending legislation is growing in Europe here's another one called potatoes about North Dakota North Dakota Senate rejects blue law repealed because citizens should use that time to go to worship. The heard about the debates in North Dakota people are some people are saying we need to get rid of those old blue laws that are on the books and the the the government in North Dakota dealt with that and said no way we are not getting rid of those blue laws we need those blue laws we need to get back to keeping Sunday in North Dakota that's a recent discussion and then here's one more from the national title of the article is Sunday should be a day for rest so my point is that there is a lot of chatter going on and there's many many more articles that I could share with you I could go on and on and on and on and on about how Sunday and getting back to Sunday and enforcing Sunday as a solution to climate change and to it to America and the world's woes our environmental woes and our moral woes we need to get back to keep digging the 1st day of the week now we have we've known about this for a long time haven't we we've read the great controversy we've read the prophecies and we know that according to great controversy Sunday is the venture going to be enforced by law and I tell you what's in this book is not fiction what's in this book is right and it's the build up is happening right now it's building up all around us and it's not going to be long until we see those Sunday laws actually enforced now when you read great controversy carefully she also says something very very important and let me share this quote This is from page 590. What is going to be the tipping what's going to tip the scales that's going to lead the United States government and governments around the world to enforce Sunday as that as a solution to the world's moral and environmental woes what is going to tip the scales I'll tell you the answer the answer according to The Spirit of Prophecy is the increase of deadly natural disasters she is very very clear on that that like what happened in Paradise California you know what happened in Paradise California that that entire town of about 27000 people was practically wiped off the map less than 2 weeks ago I was in California and my friend Pastor Ron Fleck is that name ring a bell he did tell me to tell you hello Pastor Ron because he has a lot of friends here in this conference where is he he works with me he's been employed by white horse media and Ron and I travel together read regularly he's one of my best friends and just recently we were in Red Bluff California and we had. A free afternoon before our Friday night meeting and we were about 45 minutes away from Paradise and so we decided to drive down in our rental car and drive around the neighborhoods in paradise and it was just shocking for us to see we would drive around in these neighborhoods and you'd see one house right you know right there that was in perfect condition it hadn't been touched and all around it were a neighbor's houses that were completely destroyed by the fire completely destroyed the administration was completely burned to the ground it was a major church in paradise it was in many ways kind of like an Adventist retirement community lot of admin it's there I have a good friend of mine Dave Westbrook you know he barely got out with this life he was there visiting and his family you know they were there and people barely got away and as I was as I drove through this neighborhood with Pastor Ron we were just just shocked to see one house untouched and all these other houses completely destroyed and it just reminded me of the text who were in the field ones taken ones left you know we don't really know the reason why some houses survived and some houses didn't but it was a terrible disaster and we're told in the spirit of prophecy that by fire and flood and earthquake and hurricanes and storms God's judgments are going to be falling upon this world because this world is breaking His Law. You can find quotes like that over and over and over again in the spirit of prophecy and then the great controversy she makes this very clear she says it will finally be declared that men are offending God by the violation of the Sunday Sabbath and that this sin has brought calamities which will not cease until Sunday observance shall be strictly enforced that's the argument so what I see happening is that Sunday I mean the disasters are going to be increasing we already have the chatter going on right now about Sunday legislation getting back to Sunday and what's going to tip the scales is that as there are more fires like what happened in paradise and in California the walls the fire in the south paradise in the north hurricanes like Irma and Harvey and Michael and these hurricanes are going to be growing and these disasters are going to be increasing in this world and as these disasters increase more and more and more eventually people are going to look at this and they're going to say these are judgments from God and what's But what's going to happen is the devil is going to pull a spin and the spin is going to be these disasters are judgments from God and he's doing this because we're not keeping Sunday and if we all get back to sign day and close the businesses on Sunday global warming will improve the disasters will start lessening and God will be pleased because we're coming back to church on his day. That's what's coming you can you can bet your bottom dollar that that's what's going to happen that is what it says in the book great controversy so I see we're moving into a time of disasters and then we're going to move into She also says we're going to move into a time of miracles as these disasters increase so will false miracles increase and the devil will actually show up some day and he will say that I'm Jesus and we all need to keep Sunday that's what it says a great controversy so disasters and false miracles to support Sunday are going to ultimately lead us to the very time that the Bible says nobody can buy or sell unless he has the mark of the beast and at that time the 3rd angel's message it's going to be time time for the 3rd angel time for God to speak one last time to his world through the 3rd angel's message which is a warning against the sin of breaking His Law Now go back with me to Romans Chapter 3 I'm in a do right now what E.J. Wagner did in 888 what he did according to Ellen why was he took the message of Justification by Faith and the righteousness of Christ and he brought A.V.N. to the 3rd angel's message. And that is what she said she said this is not new light it's old light but it's placed where it should be in the 3rd angel's message that's what she says and a lot of people have wondered where is righteousness by faith in the 3rd message there's a statement that all let's see where is that quote we're going to look at it again in a little while but it's on page 372 of 1st selected messages where Ellen White said letters have been coming to me and people have been asking me what do you think about this message that these 2 young men from California are preaching Jones and Wagner this message of justification by faith she said What do you think about this message and Ellen White's response does anybody remember her response that's right she said she said the message of Justification by Faith is the 3rd angel's message in there it T. and people have been trying to figure that out ever since 1888 and I'm going to do my best by the grace of God to explain that very clearly from Romans Chapter 3 when the time comes that the mark of the beast is in forced by law and Swee are in the midst of Sunday laws and that time is coming as surely as we're here right now one of these days we're going to be in the middle of Sunday legislation what happened in Paradise California and these different disasters earthquakes in Alaska and different places these things are going to increase. And people are going to look at these things and they're going to say something's going on here judgments are coming from God upon this world but then they're going to misinterpret these judgments and they're going to say this is because we're not keeping Sunday and we all need to get back to Sunday and we're going to be under pressure as 7th Day Adventists who keep the 7th day sabbath who do not keep sending and not only that but we've been called to preach the 3rd Angle's message with a loud voice to the world and the spotlight is going to be on us just like those 3 men refuse to bow down to Nebuchadnezzar image they refuse to commit idolatry so we are going to be the 3 angels message because we're going to be the Shadrach acts in the ME she acts and Abednego those who refuse to bow down we will not bow down to the beast or the image or the mark and we've got something to say we have something to say and what we have to say has to do with the 10 Commandments so we're going to tell the world that Sunday legislation is wrong and I often ask audiences on this side I talk to lots of audiences about this topic mixed audiences I preach this in front of the public I just did this in Sierra Vista Arizona not long ago it was the Catholic woman sitting right in the audience she came every night every meeting and she shook my hand at the door and she said thank you for this information. She was very blessed I don't condemn Catholic people I tell people that I love Catholic people I'm not even against Pope Francis as a person it's not the person that I'm talking about it's his office it's the system and it's the it's the movement to violate the law of God and people can understand that I ask the crowd I say what's what's wrong with Sunday legislation anyway why is Sunday legislation wrong and the 1st answer is it's the wrong day the 2nd answer is that it's force God doesn't use force he doesn't in for Sunday it's not his day and he doesn't use force to compel people to O.B.B. It's the 3rd reason why it's wrong it's because it come from the Beast The 4th reason why it's wrong is because it's a violation of the United States Constitution that for bid government from crossing over the line and enforcing religion it's a violation of our religious freedoms and if we explain things to the public in that way people can see that they think you know that's reasonable it's breaking the 10 Commandments it's using force and it's a violation of our United States Constitution it's against religious liberty and when we explain it that way to the public people go yeah that makes sense and when White says we should properly position ourselves before the public and we should explain these religious liberty issues to the public in a proper light. And as we do that people are going to be convicted and I believe the time is going to come when we're going to be appealing to people in Washington D.C. We're going to be appealing to people in government we're going to be appealing to kings and statesmen and the media we're going to be on television the cameras are going to be on us C.N.N. A.B.C. N.B.C. Associated Press all the major networks are going to be looking at 7th Day Adventists who are saying that Sunday legislation is wrong because it's breaking the 10 Commandments it's using force it's a violation of the separation of church and state it's a violation of our United States Constitution its people in forcing it religion is people it's not American and then we're going to be opening our Bibles and we're going to be showing people Romans chapter 3 verse 19 says Now we know that what things so whatever the law says it says to them who are under the law that every mouth may be stopped and that all the world may become guilty before God when the whole world is going along with Sunday legislation God is going to have a people who lift up the 10 Commandments who lift up the commandments of God before a lost and dying world one more time and we've got to do it and we've got to do it right we've got to do it humbly that's why we need the Laodicean message to humble us we have to do it in the in the kindness and in the mercy of Jesus do it in a kind a way as we can. In a way that appeals to people's consciences and to their reason we need to talk to people like Mike Pence and Donald Trump and hopefully Ben Carson will will kick in as one of Trump's advisors if this happens during the time of the trumpet ministration and Trump has a daughter evolve who keeps the Sabbath and there's going to be all kinds of things going on we need to be appealing to government and to leaders and to statesman and to the media and to anybody out there that's got a conscience and in a humble way tell them Sunday legislation is wrong because it's breaking the 10 Commandments and ultimately we're also going to say according to the Bible God's judgments are coming on those who break the 10 commandments this is very serious if anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark in the forehead or in the hand he shouted drink the wine of the wrath of God and we're going to you know God is going to be the Holy Spirit's going to come down and use God's people all around the world to lift up his commandments and those who have ears to hear will be convicted by the law of God that they are that that all the world that may become guilty before God. And the world is going to be convicted Now let me ask you something here's a very important question when when we lift up the 10 Commandments and show the world it's sin that Sunday legislation is a violation of God's law breaking the 10 Commandments God's though that God's law that's a righteous law that tells people what's right and what's wrong Sunday is wrong it's not right it's not righteous ness it's wrong it's a sin and as we tell the world that and the world realizes or at least those who have ears to hear realize that they're guilty before God then what do we do when we tell the world they're going to church on the wrong day and they're guilty before God let me ask you a bear very important question is it enough for us just just to tell people at that point that all you need to do is switch days if you'll just stop keeping so Sunday and start keeping Saturday you're fine you'll go to heaven by doing that and I see a lot of heads going NO NO NO NO NO Well good that's right because once people are guilty before God telling them that they if they just need to switch days they're going to be fine is not the answer because the very next verse in verse 20 Paul says Therefore by the deeds of the law shall no flesh be justified in his sight so the whole world is going to be arraigned before the 10 Commandments through the latter rain working through God's people showing the world that they're breaking God's Law that Sunday is wrong. And the Bible says that once where it once there in that guilty before God condition no amount of changing of days or obedience is going to remove one particle of their guilt Remember we've been through that haven't we and now I'm just taking what we studied the other day from Romans 19 or Romans 319 and 20 and I'm applying it to the time of the 3rd angel's message and that's what Wagner did at Minneapolis he took the old trues of righteousness by faith and put it where it should be in the 3rd angel's message verse 20 says by the law is the knowledge of sin as we lift up the law in the final hours the Holy Spirit is going to be using the law to convict the world that they're in sin they've broken not just the 4th but the 5th and the 9th and the 6th and all the 10 Commandments and I'm deeply convicted that we need to be in order for us to do this right brothers and sisters we've got to be keeping all the 10 commandments we can't have any skeletons in our closet we can't go into this final crisis being inconsistent and saying Well we're we're going to preach the 4th but if we're not keeping the 6th or if we're not keeping the 7 for if we're not keeping the 9 If we're breaking other commandments we're going to have egg all over our faces. You think they looked at Kavanagh and Judge Kavanaugh did any of you watching those hearings you think they picked him apart they're going to pick us apart like we've never been picked apart before we're going to be looked at inside and out on all sides and we better be living clean consistent 10 Commandment lives or weren't trouble we're in trouble but God's going to clean people up and he's going to have a people he's going to have a remnant who are ready to give this message and who are going to be clean before God clean before the Lord and the law by the law is the knowledge of sin and we're going to be lifting up the law because we've seen our sins and we've repented and we've come to Jesus that's how we can lift up the 10 Commandments and we can show people and the Holy Spirit can use us and people can be convicted of their sins now in that light once the whole world is brought at least those who are open under conviction and they realize they're guilty before God and the end of verse 20 says by the law is the knowledge of sin now what do we do. The next verse is so powerful it gives me shivers verse 21 says but now now that the world sees its need now that people are convicted of their sins now that they realize that by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified in the sight of God But now now all the righteousness of God without the law will be manifested Hallelujah. Now that righteousness will be seen it will be witnessed by the law and the prophets verse $22.00 even the righteousness of God which is centered in who in Jesus Christ in the Lord Jesus Christ so as the commandments are lifted up then the cross is lifted up at the same time and the law and the gospel are blended in the 3rd angel and preached with power with power remember we've talked about that right that's where the power is now I want to read a quote to you from this book to grab your books if you've got your books here God's last message Christ Our Righteousness and turn to page 147. 147 and this is the last chapter of this book the chapters call when the bomb drops and it's all about the mark of the beast down on page 147 about 2 thirds of the way down there is a quotation there from Volume 6 of the testimonies the reference there is 5 which is Volume 6 of the testimonies page 91619 now now read this carefully and hold on to your seats it says Ellen White wrote the Holy Spirit gave us this statement through her that the Lord God of heaven will not send upon the world his judgments for disobedience and transgression until he has sent his watchman to give the warning he will not close up the period of probation until the message shall be more distinctly proclaims. So during the Final Crisis God's message is going to be distinctly and clearly proclaimed with a loud voice to the whole world and we're going to be part of that by His grace and then it says the law of God is to be magnified the 10 Commandments need to be lifted up in all their holiness and authority and glory it their claims must to be presented in their true and sacred character that the people may be brought to decide for or against the truth so part of our work is to lift up that law of God to show people the 10 Commandments to go down through them number one number 2 number 3 number 4 number 5 to go right down through them from top to bottom on the radio on television on You Tube on Facebook through Twitter through all the technological means that we have at our command we need to be going through those 10 commandments straight down the line simple clear and powerful in a humble way and then she says yet the work will be cut short in righteousness now look at this look at the next sentence the message of Christ's righteousness is to sound from one end of the earth to the other to prepare the way of the Lord this is the glory of God which closes the work of the 3rd angel. Mark it gives me shivers it gives me shivers to read this this is an apocalyptic moment I tell you the fact that we're here that I'm here that you are here that we can study this that this is being recorded this is the fulfillment of Bible prophecy where learning the message of God for the world that closes the work of the 3rd angel and if you notice she says that what closes the work of the 3rd angel is the message of the righteousness of Jesus Christ and the reason why the message of the righteousness of Christ closes the work of the 3rd angel is that in the context of the enforced Sunday keeping which is in forcing the breaking of the Law God will have a people like Shadrach me Shaq and Abednego who lift up the 10 Commandments before the world and as the world sees that law the Holy Spirit is going to convict them that they are guilty before God The and no amount of obedience is going to take away their guilt they are trapped in sin and they only have one way out and that one way out is the God man it's the God who became a man who kept the 10 commandments for everybody who became the Lord Our Righteousness who suffered in the garden of guess salmon in. And who paid the final price on the cross for the sins of the entire world and so as Adventism during its finest hour lifts up the 10 Commandments then Adventism at least those who are ready for this moment by the grace of God are going to lift up Jesus higher and higher and higher before a lost world and they're going to have one last opportunity to receive the grace and the Mercy and the power of the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved from sin before probation closes and the 7 last plagues fall on those who get the mark of the beast Now here's another quote on page $149149.00 just turn the page and on page 149 at the top is a quote from the review in The Herald in a better 221892 this is what she says the time of test is just upon us and it's the test of the mark of the beast when the mark hits she says the mark of the beast will be urged upon us the test will come to every soul the time of test is just upon us for the loud cry of the 3rd angel has already begun in the revelation of the righteousness of Christ. The sin pardoning Redeemer this is the beginning of the light of the angel whose glory shall fill the whole earth. It's the that so in Earth's final crisis in Earth's darkest hour when Sundays and forced by law it's it's Jesus Christ that needs to be lifted up as our righteousness he has to be because he's the only way because the world is guilty for breaking God's law and once you're guilty of breaking God's law there's no way out except Jesus right this is the beginning of the light of the angel who's Glory shall fill the whole earth next sentence right below that it says I wrote Soon this prediction will be fulfilled in this is what Ellen White wrote this is from reviewing the Herald December 2003892 years after Minneapolis she said one interest will prevail one subject will swallow up every other and what is that one subject it's Christ Our Righteousness this is how the message of Christ Our Righteousness is at the heart of the 3rd angel's message the 3rd angel's message lifts up the law of God and shows people their sin and in the light of their sin there's only one answer and that one answer is Jesus Christ and His righteousness I tell you this is as solid as the throne of God When I'm telling you is that solid as the throne of God This is clear simple straightforward solid Biblical truth now I've got a little more to share with you back to the 3rd angel back to Revelation Chapter 14 the 3rd angel's message is a warning about the wrath of God. Verse 10 that is poured out with out mixture into the cup of his indignation I want to just briefly share with you a few thoughts on this and Jim You mention my talk on this I want to bring in some of those quick thoughts in there. The 3rd angel is a warning that those who get the mark of the beast will eventually drink the wine of the wrath of God which is poured out into a cup and that cup it says is without mixture and when it says without mixture What do you think that means no mercy that's right God's character is a blend of mercy and justice ever since man sinned God has been giving mercy to the human family and there's there's really never been a time in all of human history where his pure justice without a drop of mercy has fallen full force on humanity not even in the flood in the flood people didn't people died but they weren't punished for all their sins that comes at the end of the millennium there's never been a time throughout human history when God has ever poured out the fullness of His wrath without a drop of mercy completely in all of history except for one time that's right and that one time was in a garden called Get 70 when the God man wrestled with a cup and he prayed Father if it is possible take this cup from me and inside of that cup for the 1st time ever. I was the wrath of God The full justice of God against all of human sin without a drop of mercy not one drop and Jesus knew what it would mean to his relationship with his father if he chose to drink that cup and he prayed 3 times he wrestled go back to your book here page 74 page 74 the MAME quote there is from desire of ages and actually there is just there's a little story there on the other page at the bottom that says in a dream a man saw the Christ being scourged the Roman tormentor flung at the whip through the air into the innocent victims back points of metal bits of pointed metal saying deep into his flesh finally the man could stand it no longer in his dream he ran forward and he grabbed the the Roman who was hitting Jesus and he yelled stop but when he turned the Roman soldier around and he saw his face to his horror he saw himself likewise as we look at the cross we see ourselves we see what our sins have done to the Son of God desire of ages right below it says upon Christ as our substitute and surety was laid the iniquity of us all he was counted a transgressor that he might redeem us from the condemnation of the law the guilt of every descend the Nevada was pressing upon his heart the wrath of God against sin the terrible manifestation of his displeasure because of iniquity filled the soul of his son with consternation. With the weight of guilt he bears he cannot see the father's reconciling face he feared that sin was so offensive to God that their separation was to be eternal it was the sense of sin bringing the father's wrath upon him as man substitute that made the cup he drank so bitter and broke the heart of the Son of God He the Sin bearer endures the wrath of divine justice which is the justice warned about in the 3rd angel's message without a drop of mercy and for your sake he becomes sin itself and I have been convicted that as the 3rd angel warns about the mark of the beast and the wrath of God being poured out without a drop of mixture into the cup of his indignation and he should be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb the Lord lead me one time as I was studying this to think about the wrath and the cup and know mixture and the lamb and then I thought oh my that takes me right to the garden of guess them any where the lamb suffered in the presence of the holy angels where the lamb drank the cup without a drop of mercy for my sins and for your sins he took our justice so he could give us his mercy he drank the cup and I'm just I'm convicted that during the final loud cry as we lift up the 10 Commandments we're going to lift up the cross and we're going to show a lost and dying world one last time the glory of guess 70 and Calvary. And people's hearts are going to be broken they're going to be melted it's not just changing daisies that's part of it but that's not all of it we have to lift Jesus up as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world in a way that people have never seen it that's going to be the loud cry just like Jesus cried with a loud voice and said Father into your hands I commit my spirit that was a loud cry and they'll be allowed cry to this world one last time where people will see the love and the Mercy and the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ on page 75 on the on the on that page there's a quote down there near the bottom Wagner was that he can't meeting in 882 and he was in his tent and he had a remarkable experience and it says he said suddenly a light shone upon me and the tent seemed to loom and as though the sun were shining and I saw the Christ crucified for me and to me it was revealed for the 1st time in my life that God loved me and that Christ gave Himself for me personally it was all for me and that experience is what launched Wagner on his mission as a preacher of the cross. And at Minneapolis he preached this and he led the 7th Day Adventist leaders in a series of Bible studies on Romans and Galatians lifting up Jesus and putting that message in the middle of the 3rd channels message and it was life changing It was powerful and it is going to continue to shine until it lightens the earth now I'm almost done here Romans Chapter 5 verse 9 people came to Ellen White and they said what do you think of the message that these men are preaching justification by faith in the righteousness of Christ and her response was from 1st selected messages page 372 she said that what we are hearing is the 3rd angel's message in verity Romans 5 verse 9. Says. Much more than being now justified by his blood which is the only way that anybody can get out from underneath the just condemnation of the law of God it's through faith in Jesus Christ and His blood His shed blood being justified by his blood we shall be saved from what from wrath through him. I see that you see it through the blood of Jesus that was the blood was sprinkled by the High Priest on top of the mercy seat underneath which was the 10 Commandments it's through the blood of Jesus and the justification so that our sins can entirely be forgiven that it's through that blood that we will be saved from wrath efficiency $56.00 says the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience and that wrath is coming upon a lost world that is broken God's law and the only way to get out from underneath the condemnation of a just law and to get clear from the coming wrath of God like John the Baptist said flee from the wrath to come the only way to get out from underneath that is through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ and let me say that God's wrath is just it's because God is good and he's tired of all the the the babies that are being aborted and he's tired of all the pornography and he's tired of all the children that are being abducted and he's tired of all the all the terrorists where people are blowing themselves up in front of innocent people and he's tired he's tired he's tired of all these sins he wants this world to be clean again to be happy again to be loving again like he made it in the beginning because that is our God He is going to send his judgments and he is going to get rid of sin once and for all and he's going to be good and just in doing it but he doesn't want to get rid of us that's why he took the cup and drank it in self. And we got to explain this to the world Romans 55 says hope does not make us a shame because the love of God is shed a broad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given to us there is power in the 3rd angel's message there is power in Justification by Faith there is power in the forgiveness of sins and as the Holy Spirit comes into people's lives bringing the love of God Romans 13 verse 10 says Love is the fulfilling of the law and through the mercy of Jesus and the grace of Jesus and the forgiveness of Jesus and the power of Jesus God's people are going to have that that holy spirit power that's going to come into their lives and change them and they are going to want to follow the lamb wherever he goes they're going to want to keep the commandments all 10 of them including the 4th and the 9th in the 5th than the 6th and all of them because they love Jesus and God's going to give them the power to say no to resist the devil the beast the image the mark and all the forces of the dragon and the Beast in the false prophet and the false miracles all of this we're going to say no no no no no we're going to follow Jesus Christ all the way and by His grace we are going to keep the 10 Commandments including the Sabbath in the midst of the storm because we love the Lord Jesus Christ. My last verse before I finish it's Revelation 14 verse 12 the message of the righteousness of Christ will produce a people a people who are commanded keepers. Revelation 1412 says here is the patience of the saints here are they that keep the commandments of God they keep them now they do 1st they realize that they have broken them and their only answer is Jesus Christ and through Jesus and His grace and His love and His power and His forgiveness and His mercy they then become a commandment keeper commandment keepers are born through the message of Christ and His righteousness and the message of the Cross here is the patience of the saints here are they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus so at the end of this workers meeting as my hearts been touched and I trust yours has too I appeal to you as a fellow minister of the gospel I was ordained in 818. 19811981 in North Dakota I pastored for 11 years I am a pastor and evangelist I am a I'm a follower of Jesus Christ I'm a 7th Day Adventist and I appeal to you to the pastors their wives the Bible workers everybody here in this room and anybody who listens to this recording I appeal to you to make a decision that you want to be one of these Saints Here is the patience of the saints saints who follow the Bible the Word of God saints who have the power of the Holy Spirit pray for the Holy Spirit seek the Holy Spirit the Holy Spirit will help us all to understand these trues.

And gather us into his into his heavenly kingdom. Won't that be a wonderful day. That's what it's all about so let's be faithful be faithful Michigan conference pastors and Bible workers and your wives let's be faithful. Jem's going to come up and pray our closing prayer. Father in heaven we're on the threshold of your coming events are happening so quickly that we only catch a glimpse of some of the things and we have no idea of the plans that are being prepared and carried out the one thing we know when we look into that law it's a mirror into our own heart we see that we don't match up we see that we are poor blind wretched miserable naked but when we look into the heart of Jesus we see that his heart his life doesn't match we also recognize that you've given us an opportunity a. Invitation to accept his life for ours which means that he has already suffered that cup of Wrath it's poured out without mercy so that we don't have to so that we will never be eternally separated from you whether we lack we lack that love that love that is so special it's called The Fear of you reverence we're asking that the Holy Spirit would pour that reverence into our hearts because it's the fear of the Lord that turns one from evil it's the fear of the Lord that keeps us drawing closer and closer to you and breaks the power of sin in our lives as father were asking that you would give us that fear and that day by day it will grow and grow and you'll give us a greater capacity have more and without a love for others and a desire to see them come to us we're coming. When I pray that you would take away all that selfishness that within us all the self-righteousness all of that critical spirit and you will put such a love in our hearts that we won't care about self won't care about positions will care about numbers but we will care about every heart father were about to have an evangelistic series another one across the state you have moved upon us to focus the presentations on Jesus you know that there were a group of young men who are putting this these presentations together in as you have moved on so many others to present your gospel in the clearest possible way I pray that you would move upon those men that Jesus might be the center of every one of those presentations Father I pray that you would bless these statewide evangelistic outreach that every one of us will be embraced in it I pray that your power would come through and hearts would be touched in that there would be a movement towards you as never before but may that movement come 1st from our own hearts our own families our own church families may there be a revival that is so deep within us that it transforms the life and that can only happen with the power of your Holy Spirit Father we want to kneel before you dedicating our lives we know not what the future holds for us but it we do ask that you would help us to be faithful until the very last moment of our lives and if we should live it before it want to see you come in the clouds away we be faithful Lord to that time so Father I pray your blessing upon us. We don't deserve it but we need it we must have it and I pray that you would pour out your spirit upon us bless us with that connection that you have promised and we want to thank you we want to thank you for the way that you've been with us as a conference for the way that you've been with us through this time together the special time we asked and you delivered and now Father we are thinking you in advance for what you're going to do in this conference in the lives of each person here pray that you would be with the Steve as he travels home pray that you'll continue to bless him in his ministry that he might glorify an honor you that's his desire and I know it's your desire for him to pray that you bless his family. And Father as we bring this meeting to a close we want to thank you hearts go out to you in love and gratitude in Jesus name in.
