Thank you Lou Thank you so much for the invitation and it's great to be back with I hope I'm sorry it couldn't be in person but I'm glad we can at least do it like this why don't we have a word of prayer and we will get into our message for today Father in heaven we thank you for bringing us together the Sabbath morning and I just pray for a special blessing as we study your word for that you would speak through me and I pray that you would be with each person who is listening to me we all hear what you would have us to learn today I mean we be prepared for your sin coming as my prayer in Jesus' name. You know last night I spoke about prophetic her peril in America today we're looking at the prophetic destiny of Adventism It's amazing to see what the Book of Revelation describes with respect to America in prophecy to the French Revolution of prophecy and of the 2nd Advent move in the 7th Day Adventist church and Bible prophecy and that's what we're going to be looking at today I'm very excited about this presentation we're going to go through Revelation 10 and connect it to Abraham and we're going to see some amazing connections here so what I want you to do is if you have your Bibles I want you to to turn to Revelation Chapter 10 and we're going to look at verses 5 through 7 to start off relationship for 10 verses 5 year 7 says in the angel in which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven and swear by him that live through ever and ever who created heaven on the things that they're in are in the earth and the things that there are in the sea and the things which are there in that there should be time no longer but in the days of the voice of the 7th angel when he shall begin to sound the mystery of God should be finished as he hath the clear to his servants the prophets here we see an angel. Lift up his hand to heaven and he swears by him that lives for ever and ever now we know who the cendol Liz because this angel is the mighty angel that a scene in verse one of Revelation chapter to him and this mighty angel is a Jesus Christ if you've studied Revelation 10 you know that the mighty angel is the Jesus Christ so the angel who stands upon the sea and upon the earth and lifts up his hand to heaven this is Jesus Christ the lifting up his hand to heaven and he swears by him that lives forever and ever who created heaven on the things that there are on the earth and the things that are on the sea in the things which are there and that there should be time no longer clearly this is connecting to the 1st angels message that that talks about worshipping God the Creator who made the heaven the earth the sea and all that in the us and so in the fountains of waters and so we see a connection to the 1st angels message and we see Jesus he swearing by the Creator Well when I look in Scripture Jesus is the creator so Jesus where and by himself so this is very interesting to see what's happening here whenever Jesus swears by in both and especially when he swears by an oath where he swears by himself. We know that what he is about to see say has a most significance and so we're going to come back to what he says here a little bit later but I'm just giving you that as a foundation for where we are headed now when you look at Revelation Chapter 10 for example in the scope of the Book of Revelation Revelation Chapter 10 is but Tshwane the 6th from the 7th trumpets and you have the 7 churches the 7 seals and the 7 trumpets in the 1st half of the Book of Revelation and so Revelation Chapter 10 is taking place at the end or toward the end of the 7 trumpets it's interesting at the beginning of the trumpets in Revelation Chapter 8 you see an angel with a sensor in his hand and this is Revelation Chapter 8 starting in verse 3 it says another angel came and stood at the altar having a golden censor this is at the altar of incense in the holy place of the heavenly sanctuary and then you see that the Saints are there was given him much ensigns that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the Golden altar which was before the throne and the smoke of the instance which came with the prayers of the saints ascended before God out of the angels hand this work that the angel is doing at the beginning of the 7 trumpets is the work of the High Priestess the work of intercession So the Angel at the beginning of the 7 trumpets is Jesus the High Priest Heber $725.00 says that Jesus ever lives to make intercession force so Jesus as an angel at the beginning of the 7 trumpets this is an important he's the beginning he's the Angel at the beginning of the 7 trumpets as high priest at the end of the 7 trumpets He's identified as the mighty angel. Who was the high priest at the beginning of the 7 trumpets Now if you study the 7 trumpets you'll understand that at the end of the 6 trumpet you have the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 840 August 11th 140 so the timing of this mighty angel coming down from heaven is around the time the thought of an Empire Falls in 840 you can read about that in great controversy page 3 $34.00 on your own time so the Ottoman Empire falls in and around the year 840 Jesus the mighty angel comes down from heaven and you can see the work that he is going to do you based on his description he's clothed with a cloud just as he was clothed with a cloud above the most holy place of the earthly sanctuary and in the Old Testament and a rainbow is upon his head we see a rainbow in Revelation 4 above the throne of God His face shines like the sun just as it does in Revelation Chapter one Jesus is the son of righteousness of Molokai chapter 4 his feet are like pillars of fire just as you the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night this is clearly sanctuary language because Jesus was the angel at the beginning of the 7 trumpets in the holy place as the High Priest and now he comes down from heaven around the year 840 as the mighty angel clothed with a cloud so this is sanctuary language meaning that he started in the 7 trumpets in the holy place but now that he's clothed with a cloud he's announcing that he's moving from the Holy Place to the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary and that winds up very nicely with our understanding of the 2300 a prophecy that takes us the 844 and then the rainbow above us have the rainbow as a symbol of the Covenant he's going to renew the covenant with his people from the most holy place where he will write his law in their hearts and minds that includes the 4th Commandment the 7th come for season in the 4th commandment the 7th day being the Sabbath to keep it holy. And his face shines like the Sun The Sun of Righteousness he's going to be bring righteousness the righteousness of Christ as a revelation to the world in verse 2 it says he had in his hand a little book open you almost know already what book is opened based on the description of who Jesus is in verse one Jesus being described with Sanctuary language and verse want to Revelation 10 so the book that is open would inevitably point to this time period of her sister it's around the time of 840 going into 844 pointing to the work of Jesus in the heavenly sanctuary specifically in the most holy place where the sanctuary in heaven will be cleansed and sure enough the little book that is open on the hand of Jesus is a book that had been closed but now it's open for understanding and that's the portion of the Book of Daniel that had been sealed until the time of the end and with the message in the Book of Daniel that was unsealed pointing to the sanctuary much that Jesus is a is announcing here in Revelation 10 in the era of 840 by coming down from heaven that he is raising up a new movement just as he raised up the children of Israel to go from Egypt to Canaan and he led them through the wilderness and gave him 100 gave them an understanding of who he is through the sanctuary message he's raising up this movement. To lead them from Earth to keep the. Spiritual Egypt which would be this earth to the heavenly Canaan upon heaven and so this is what we see happening here in Revelation 10 Jesus is the leader of this new movement and with the message of the unsealed Book of Daniel he's raising up this movement with the understanding of the 2300 a prophecy to prepare people for the 2nd coming of Jesus so when we get to verses 56 and 7 we see the significant point that he lifts up his hand to heaven he's standing upon the sea and upon the earth meaning this is a worldwide message and he lifts up his hand to heaven and he swears by him Saul Now when Jesus Where's by himself you know that what he is saying here is of utmost importance every word in Scripture is important when the Bible says God for God's will of the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life you can take that to the bank that is the sure word of God But when Jesus swears by himself she is making an oath that he wants us to understand very clearly and what I'm going to show you through the remaining portion of this musses is that this oath that Jesus wears by is the final oath of 3 of us by which he swears by himself in how he shows what it's one of the ways that he shows that he's going to defeat Satan and the great controversy in this is the prophetic destiny of adding to them this 3rd and final oath but it builds upon the 2 oaths that have come before it so we're going to come back and look at this earth which we see in verses 56 and 7. And we'll understand this 3rd of mother will understand this 30th much better when we look at the 1st and the 2nd of that crisis formed by and so we're going to start by going to Genesis Chapter 22 so if you have your Bibles turn with me to Genesis Chapter 22 and we're going to look at the story of Abraham and in the story it's interesting Abraham has had a Isaac by now and in Genesis 15 God told Abraham that he would have a child from his own flesh and then in chapter 16 Abraham takes the promises of God and pulls out what we call an old covenant maneuver where as the children says all the children of Israel say all the Florida said we will do it when they hear the 10 Commandments This is what Abraham doesn't in Genesis 16 he listens to the advice of Sara and he has a son named Ishmael through his servant Hagar Cohen The book of Galatians chapter 4 identifies Hagar in Ishmael as a symbol of the Old Covenant that's what the Bible says. When eyes of his born he becomes a symbol of the new covenant because this is the work that God does in Abraham and Sarah they couldn't do it in and of themselves it was only a work that God could do that's a symbol of the new covenant so God has promised Abraham in the book of Genesis that and Isaac the promise that he is given in Abraham all nations of the earth will be blessed and it would be through Isaac that this promise will be fulfilled Abraham basically thinks that the purpose for his life has been fulfilled Isaac is alive the promises been fulfilled and he's living out his wife and then Genesis 22 comes along and in Genesis $22.00 Verse 2 God says Take Now your son your only son Isaac him you'll love and get the into the land of Mariah and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell you of and so God tells Abraham to offer of Isaac as a sacrifice now this offering is taking place because God has proven to the on looking in a verse that Abraham truly is the father of those who have faith because the only thing the universe the angels and the unfallen beings can say whatever it is that we really have that Abraham is a man of faith and he's made mistakes every step of his life he had Ishmael he lied to the king of Egypt and all of those things so what evidence do we have so in Genesis 22 God Abraham in the most trying way possible it's interesting he told. Abraham that he would have a child from his own flesh but in Genesis 22 he simply tells him offer of Isaac as a sacrifice and on the 3 day journey Abraham has a lot of time to think about what's happening and in Heber's a love and it's interesting Paul tells us when he was 11 that Abraham had such faith that he believed that God would raise Isaac from the dead but God didn't promise Abraham specifically that there would be a resurrection of Isaac but Abraham's faith was that God call it those things which be not as though they were there for he's going to raise Abraham from the dead or he's going to raise Isaac from the dead and that's going to have to take place because God said the Isaac would be who the seed would be fulfilled through the promises will be fulfilled through so if all nations of the earth will be blessed through me and it will be fulfilled through Isaac if I'm going to Isaac to death he's going to have to be resurrected so he gets to the final moment of truth where Isaac is obeying the word of his father and he raises the knife to slay his son Isaac and in verse 11 it says and the and this is Genesis $22.00 and the angel of the Lord called it under him out of heaven now again when I was younger as a child I used to think that this was just an angel speaking to Abraham we're going to see that this is not just an angel this is an the angel of the Lord called him to him out of heaven and said Abraham Abraham and he said here are my and he said lay not fine hand upon the way neither do though anything of him for now I know that the fear is Scott so here is the message of fear and saying that the has not withheld us online only son from a no notice 1st 3rd then it goes on down verse 15. This is the angel of the Lord called Abraham out of heaven the 2nd time and said by myself have I sworn saith the Lord for because you have done this thing and have not withheld by son the only son that I'm blessing I will bless the immortal plying I will multiply by seed as the stars of the heaven so noticed this the angel Lord says by myself have I sworn say I thought of this is the 1st. Where God swears by himself now in case you're wondering who the angel of the Lord as we go to Heber 6 which makes it very clear so just turn in your Bible to Hebrews Chapter 6 and in Hebrews Chapter 6 verse 13 it says for when God made promise to Abraham because he could swear by no greater he swear by him softer you see that in Genesis 22 it's the angel of the Lord who swore by himself but Paul Banks abundantly clear and he respects that this is God swearing by himself why does he swear by himself when he makes an oath because he could swear by no greater so he swears by and of and he says surely blessing I will bless thee and multiplying I will multiply the so god of swearing by an oath and he is saying Abraham you have proved yourself here with your faith and your obedience and I am swearing by an oath the those who are your children will not simply be your children by blood by the flush they will be your children by faith and God is swearing by an oath meaning he is guaranteeing that the children of Abraham. Will have the same faith that Abraham demonstrated when he offered up as a sacrifice on Mt Mariah meaning that the children of Abraham will fear God and obey God to the same degree of faithfulness that Abraham did when he offered up Isaac as a sacrifice so Abraham as the father of faith and when he withheld nothing from God including that which was dearest to him he became an illustration and an example of all those who by faith follow God and he especially becomes an illustration of faith for those who live at the end of the world the experience of Abraham offering up on Isaac was not just for Abraham as the father of faith it's an experience in faith and obedience the all who have the faith of Abraham will have from his day to the end of the world and so when Abraham demonstrated this faith the angel of the Lord Jesus Himself the pre-incarnate Christ comes down from heaven and swears by an oath and says by myself have I sworn because I can swear by no greater than in the all nations of the earth will be blessed and there will be people on this earth who will look to the example of obedience and faith that you have just given and it will allow them and it will empower them to look to Jesus as well to exercise the same degree of faith and obedience what a powerful illustration and so it's so important that God Himself swears by himself to say I will have a people of faith like that who are the children of Abraham from this time to the end of the world that's what got us thinking so we we see this amazing story and of course there's illustrations in how God offered up his only son Jesus on the cross and Jesus actually died he wasn't spared there's a lot of things you can do with that story but that's what I'm looking at today is the oath that God swore by. But you know this blessing that God swore by that there would be children of Abraham who would live by the same faith was a specially designed for the nation of Israel so you have Isaac the son of Abraham and you have Jacob the son of Isaac who becomes Israel and his 12 sons become the fathers of the 12 tribes of the Nation of Israel and they were supposed to have the faith of Abraham and the obedience of Abraham and God a sworn by an oath that those who are the children of Abraham would have the same degree of faith and obedience that Abraham and unfortunately the nation of Israel for fitted the covenant God made it gave them the 10 commandments and they said all the Florida said we will do but they forfeited this covenant by idolatry and ultimately the children of Israel rejected the prince of the Covenant Jesus himself and then he's the scribes the prince of the Covenant Daniel 1122. So it led to the death of Jesus by the unfaithfulness of the children of Israel and so the negotiations 3 verses $26.00 to $29.00 God it moves to the next phase of the fulfillment of His promise yes there were faithful Jews who accepted Jesus but the nation as a whole rejected him and so and of course you look to the 10 northern tribes they were taken away by the Assyrians in the ultimate Lee The Jews were destroyed by the destroyed by the Romans in 7080 so now you have this promising collision 326229 which says if you be Christ's or if you are Christ's then are you Abraham see and errors according to the promise now that promise one of those your heirs or inheritors. According to the promises that promise that God made to Abraham way back in Genesis $22.00 that those who do demonstrate the same degree of faith and obedience to Abraham and will be his children and the way we become children of Abraham through faith today is by belonging to Christ if we belong to Christ then we are Abraham's seed in errors according to the promise that same promise where Christ has sworn by and of us that he would have a people on the earth who would have faith and obedience to the degree that Abraham did when he offered as a sacrifice so here's the thing that initial oath was confirmed by Christ on the cross so the initial oath was confirmed by Christ on the cross when Christ died you know an oath is confirmed by blood so when Jesus died on the cross of the prince of the covenant the covenant that he made with Abraham the everlasting covenant that he made with Abraham was confirmed by Christ death that guarantee that the promise that God made to Abraham would for sure be fulfilled once Jesus died on the cross and Jesus raises up the Christian church starting with the 12 disciples and then it spread to the the known world and so now if you belong to Christ or Abraham seed your heirs according to the promise but you look at history a look at Revelation Chapter 12 The Christian Church. Largely forfeited the blessings of the covenant you see that Revelation 13 as well where you have a professed Christian power in Revelation 13 and in Daniel Chapter 7 who assumes the form of Christianity but speaks great words against the Most High and rather than following the law of God and allowing the Covenant to be fulfilled through the Christian church where God writes as law in their hearts and minds the Christian Church claimed to have the authority to change God's covenant and to change the law of God and so they spoke great words against the most high and so the Christian Church the. The professed Christian church largely forfeited the blessings of the Covenant Yes there was the true church the flood into the wilderness but Christianity professed Christianity at large largely forfeited the blessings of the Covenant So if you're looking at this promise that God has made to Abraham you're left to wonder saying God swore by an oath and because he could swear by no greater He swore by himself that there would be a people on the earth. Who would be faithful and obedient the way Abraham was faithful and obedient when he offered up Isaac but the Israelites they forfeited the covenant promise they crucify the prince of the covenant the Christian church they forfeited the blessing of the covenant they presume to change the law of God which is the Covenant of God were God rights is law on our hearts and minds the Christian Church said we can change the law of God So if the Israelites go into idolatry they crucify the prince of the covenant the Christian church during the 1260 years change the covenant they break the covenant by saying they can change the law of God And so you're left to wonder what happened to that promise that God made Abraham way back in Genesis Chapter 22 this is where we come now to Daniel Chapter 12 and we see the 2nd of 3 of us that God makes now in Daniel Chapter 12 you'll see at the beginning of the chapter Michael stands up and Michael Christ Michael means one who is like God And Michael was present with Gabriel at the beginning of the vision of Daniel 101112 Chapter 10 and so Daniel sees this gray vision and now it's time for the explanation so in verse 5 it says the night in a look to behold there's that other 2 the one on the side of the bank of the river and the other on that side of the bank of the river now these 2 have only bangs are Christ and Gabriel because they were the ones that appeared to Daniel at the beginning of the vision and now at the end of the vision they're here to give Daniel some further information so notice verse 6 it says on one side of the man clothed than one which was upon the waters of the river how long will it be to the end of these wonders so the one who is asking the question would be Gabriel and the man who has clothed them Lennon as Michael or Christ Now notice verse 7 verse 7 says and I heard the man clothed than one and so this is Christ here he's clothed in linen which were. Upon the waters of the river when he held up his right hand in his left hand under heaven and swear by him the Live Earth for ever that it shall be for a time times and in half and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people all these things shall be finished so notice this and a case you're wondering you know how do we know for sure that this is Christ if you go back to Daniel Chapter 10 you see. Verse 5 you see a certain man clothed than one and then in verse 6 this is it says his body also was like the barrel in his face of the appearance of lightning and his eyes as lamps of fire and his arms and feet like and colored a polished brass and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude that's cries that the pre-incarnate Christ clothed in London so then and in a trough he's again closed and when and and he lifts up his hands again to heaven and he swears by him that lives for ever this is God Again this is Christ again Christ is God He can swear by no greater so he swears by himself and this time rather than swearing by an oath that in Abraham all nations of the Earth would be blessed and that those who are the children of Abraham will receive the same blessing will be heirs of the promise and the us who have faith and obedience like Abraham will receive the same blessing he says something a little bit different and this is very interesting what he says here when he swears by an oath he says that it shall be for a time times and a half now that's the $1260.00 days because the time is one year times is 2 years dividing a time or half a time is half a year there is $360.00 days in a Jewish or biblical year so time times and a half added together $360.00 plus $720.00 is $1080.00 plus want to 80 is $1260.00 so that's the $1260.00 days which is 1260 years. So now he's saying that it will be for a time times and a half or 1260 years when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people and all these things will be finished now now listen to this very carefully the 1260 year prophecy is mentioned at least 9 times in Daniel and Revelation so it's a prophecy that everybody should understand it's a prophecy that goes from 53082798 a.d. the 5 in 530 there was the decree by just in the end that made the bishop of Rome the head of all the churches so this is the union of church and state church and state unite but in 798 church and state are torn apart you have the deadly wound when Napoleon sins as general birth e.a.a. into the Vatican takes the pope captive Pius the 6 captive in February of 798 exactly 1260 years later that's the Trojan 160 or prophecy of papal supremacy Why is Christ's wearing by any of us by himself about 1260 years well here's why because as I mentioned God said in the guaranteed by an oath that he would have a people on the earth who would be faithful like Abraham but the children of Israel forfeited the covenant blessing and then after Jesus died on the cross and he raises up the Christian Church the professed Christian church forfeits the blessing as well and so Christ again swears by an oath this is the 2nd time he's like look I realize that I guaranteed by an oath that I would have a fee for people on the earth and this is what he's saying he's saying I'm guaranteeing you by an oath that yes my people will be scattered for 1260 years yes they will be scattered. But after 1260 years once we get to 798 and my people will be scattered no longer after 798 after the trial 160 years of papal supremacy I will begin to gather a people that will fulfill the oath that I made to Abraham way back in Genesis 22 after 1798 I am going to raise up a movement of people who will be the fulfillment of the everlasting covenant that I made in Genesis 22 and this is amazing friends this is what gets me excited to be a 7th they have in this because once you see the 2nd oath and Daniel Chapter 12 were God is guaranteeing that after 798 after the 1260 years his people will be scattered no longer he will have a covenant people on the earth then it becomes very clear who this covenant people are and that is where we come to Revelation 10 so you may have wondered what I was talking about at the beginning my beings will comes down from heaven has moved from the Holy Place to the most holy place to renew a covenant where the rainbow is a pub above us so the Ramble symbolizes the covenant you know the covenant is where God writes as law into our hearts and minds he's going to have a covenant people from the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary but get this verse 5 we're going to see the 3rd of them when you see this 3rd of it's going to blow your mind just look at this and the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth. Lifted up his hand to heaven and swear by him the Live Earth for ever and ever there you see the same languages Daniel 12 he see the same languages Genesis 22 so this is Christ lifting up his hand to have any swearing by himself because he can swear by no greater sweet he swear but by him the Live Earth for ever and ever who created heaven and the things that they're in are and the earth and the things that they are in are in the sea and the things which are there and that there should be time no longer Ok so he swearing by an oath that there is going to be time no longer Now if you see what's happening here in Revelation Chapter 10 Revelation Chapter 10 he's he's opened this little book for understanding which points to the 2300 a prophecy which points us to 844 and when he says that there should be time no longer the word here in the Greek for time is Kronos now for some reason the New King James Version translates this that there should be delay no longer that's a mistranslation because the the Greek word for a delay is crow neat So you see that Matthew 25 for example words as while the bridegroom tarried or while the bridegroom was delayed they also Lumberton slept this is not delayed this is. Kronos which translated means a period of time now the Greek word for a point in time is the Greek word chiros But this is the Greek word Kronos which means period of time which is a perfect usage of the word for time for a prophetic period so a point in time is Kyra's 12 o'clock and noon that's a point in time but a prophetic period like the 2300 days or the 1260 days or the 1290 of the 1335 those are periods of time and what Christ the swearing by an oath here is that there is no more prophetic time from 844 to the 2nd coming now I find it amazing that some people still think that they're so smart that they can start setting dates for Sunday laws and the 2nd Coming and the close of probation on all of these things did you realize that you're going up against the oath of Jesus himself and because he could swear my dough greater He swears by him self that there is no more prophetic time after 844 so if you think you're so smart that you can set dates you're actually going up against the God of the universe but that's not the main point here there's a bigger point that Christ is making after 844 God has guaranteed based on the 2nd oath that he will gather a people from after 798 and by each 144 when there is no more prophetic time what God is saying is what will give force to my people to the 2nd Advent movement that I am raising up to be alive from 844 to the 2nd coming is not time prophecy but character development and God a saying this I guaranteed by an oath. That I would have a people on the earth who would have would have faith and obedience like Abraham I guarantee that by enough but the children of Israel broke the promise of the covenant the Christian church broke the current the promise of the Covenant and so Christ's wears by an oath that his people will be no longer scattered after $798.00 and then he's saying specifically from this prophecy in Revelation $106.00 that after $844.00 it's not going to be time prophecy that feels the engine to the 2nd Advent movement it's going to be something entirely different and you'll see that now in verse 7 Here is what crisis swearing by an oath by the he says will be accomplished after $844.00 verse of him but in the days of the voice of the 7th angel when he when he shall begin to sound the mystery of God should be finished as he hath the clear to his servants the prophets with the mystery of God you know this from Colossians 127 but I'll read it to you so that you get it very clearly Colossians $127.00 says to him 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 so the mystery of God that will be finished is Christ in you the character of God being fully finished Christ the swearing by an oath my people are not going to be scattered after 798 and from 844 to the 2nd Coming I am raising up a people from the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary where I am close with a cloud on a rainbow is upon my head where I'm going to write my law into the hearts and minds of my people where they understand from this book that has been opened that I'm cleansing the sanctuary from sin and when I cleanse the sanctuary from sin I cleanse their hearts from Sun I will have a people where my character is fully formed to within in the lives of my people that is the mystery of God and Christ is saying I am guaranteeing by an oath. That I will have a people on the earth who are like me in character this is not fantasy this is reality Christ is guaranteeing that he will have a people upon the earth who have the degree of faithfulness and obedience that Abraham had when he offered up Isaac as a sacrifice on Mt Mariah the children of Israel forfeit of the covenant they sacrificed the prince of the covenant on the cross the Christian church tried to change the Covenant by changing the law of God from Sabbath the Sunday but at the end of the world God has a Sabbath keeping people a covenant keeping people who not only keep the letter of the law but they keep the spirit of the law because Christ writes is was because Christ writes his law into our hearts and minds so that we have his character and I want to take you to a few 3 to just give you an even broader picture of this mystery of. Paul says in a fusions 3 starting in verse one for this cause I Paul the prisoner Jesus Christ for you Gentiles if you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given to me to you word how the by revelation he made known to me the mystery as I wrote a 4 and a few words were by when you read you may understand my knowledge of the mystery of Christ and what does this mystery he says which in other agents was not made known to the sons of men as it is now revealed in His holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit what is it that the Gentile should be fellow wears and of the same body and partakers of his promise and Christ by the gospel so the mystery of God is also the gospel but it's not simply the Gospel declared as the gospel revealed what is the gospel revealed look like you go down to verse 16 of the fusions 3 this is the mystery of God says in verse 16 that he would grant you according to the riches of His glory to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man and notice for 17 that Christ made well aware in your hearts by faith. That you being rooted and grounded in love may be able to comprehend with all saints what of the breadth and length and and height and the know the love of Christ which passed the knowledge that you might be filled with all the fullness of God Listen Christ in you the hope of glory the mystery of God being finished means that we will be filled with all the fullness of God in your like how could that ever happen versus 20 in 21 now under him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we could ask or think I mean Paul uses all the superlatives that he can think of for out of us to tell us that God really can do this work and us when Christ was in our hearts by faith we have the face of Jesus we are full of all the fullness of God and God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that work with and as friends this is what Christ is swearing by an oath by himself about he swore by an oath to Abraham saying your faithfulness is a demonstration of the fear of God just as the last generation with your Gotta Give glory to Him Your faithfulness and obedience is a demonstration of the faithfulness and obedience of all who will be that your seed who will be heirs of the promise that I am making with you and so we see the children of Israel forfeit of the covenant the Christian Church forfeit of the covenant but God for the last day movement will be the fulfillment of that covenant and so the prophetic destiny of Adventism is that God will have a people on the earth just before he returns who will be like Abraham when he offered up Isaac as a sacrifice just as Abraham was willing to offer up his only son. God the last the people will love not their lives and to the earth they will have faith and obedience and in your aunts and God is saying I am swearing by an oath that ever him there will be a people on the earth who will be like you and then in Daniel 12 he says I'm guaranteeing that my people will no longer be scattered I will gather a people who will have the faith and obedience of Abraham and in Revelation 10 he said I'm coming down from heaven myself as the mighty angel to announce that I'm moving from the Holy Place to the most holy place to renew the covenant with my last the people of the 2nd element movement I'm going to write my one of their hearts and minds and they will obey the way Abraham did they will have faith the way Abraham had faith and they will be my demonstration to the on looking in a verse of what it means when you come to Revelation 14 for over God can say here is the patience of the saints here are they that keep the commandments of God in the faith of Jesus that is the oath that Christ has sworn by and because he could swear by no greater He swore by him self to say this is the people that I will have at the time that I come back friends that's what he has called you to be and that's what he is guaranteed that you can be and so today on the Sabbath morning I just want to challenge you whatever you might be struggling with I want you to just lay it on the altar the way Abraham way to Isaac on the altar and God will give you the grace that you need to be that faithful saint at the end of the world. I'm just going to offer a word of prayer to close this message so let's pray Father in heaven you've given us a high call and you've given us a prophetic thingy that we would be the final fulfillment of the the oath that you made to Abraham. May the mystery of God be fulfilled in our lives may we be found faithful when. Ever looked to Jesus the Prince of that. To fill these problems this is one of Jesus.
