our father in heaven I has to bless the time that we spend here studying your holy book of Revelation to make it clear enough to us what it means and what it says I asked for this gift in the name of Jesus yesterday we are starting the second Angels message today will spend some time looking at the third Angels message and then move on from there relationship report team are looking at verse nine and there and the third angel followed them saying with a loud voice is a credit history Angels are consecutively set of contemporary that there is an order to them follow them saying with a loud voice at any man worship the beast and his image and receive his mark in his four head or in his hand the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God whether they drink in verse eight is the one of the wrath of Babylonian fornication is that once in his enforcing it smart and they were forcing this with their fornication there you have church and state that while doctrine and there is a line of wrath there but if you don't drink and if you missed if you find a way to escape drinking their wrath are expressed in her wrath what one are you going to drink that the rapid everyone is going to experience wrath in the second part of message into the wrath of the beast or the wrath of the Lamb the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God which is poured out without sure half of his impending nation what we talked about the unmixed with mercy how do we get that understood mercy is just a matter of logic that is pure wrath if there is anything extended in a outset of wrath but your wrath to be unmixed with mercy consensus by reason we get there and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy Angels and in the presence of the Lamb surmises the judgment seeing because Jesus offered to confess the faithful before the Angels plans to the faithless they suffered before the Angels he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone another word for brimstone as it saw tormented with fire and the software like what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah verse sixteen and the smoke of their torment defendants up for ever and ever I want to address that verse sixteen to the inverse eleven start on address that verse eleven for a bit the smoke ascended forever and ever the literal reading of of the words here are ten ages and ages but typically in the Bible and the New Testament you see the word for Al Gore it means to some end up for ages but one is used like this for Albert and Amber it often is used to be referring to eternity confidence ages and ages there is one passage besides this one where it looks like it refers to her could refer to a wicked person other now it's always God 's people and God and God 's ways that are forever and ever but is this precious plastic about anyone living forever never being wicked no one is smoke it's that remnant of what has happened in the fire is smoking in the fire it is for a while does not therefore long the smoke goes up infected with fire out of Yahoo still has smoke going up in smoke goes up forever and ever literal sense eventually it's going to rise to the top of the atmosphere and then going out because I'm a weird word which ways are when you get into the universe what I communicate to you is that this is a metaphor that the smoke rises forever and ever is referring to the fact that it will never be forgotten the effects of sin and the punishment on sin the end result of sin is never going to be lost sight of your estates of Mister Leach I know this is the smoke of this book is going up forever and ever the process is not sent Dana Sandlin is not to be quenched until different than that yeah it's saying that forever you is Jenkins will realize that sin and is in oblivion and you will never forget the lessons that were learned in this generation of earth history yet exact and be honest with you Mister Leach I don't even buy that position and a lot of other passages Isaiah asked the question who will dwell in the everlasting burnings and the answer is those that have clean hands and a pure heart that is everyone experiences everlasting fire some people experience that without harm there the righteous and some experience it with Harmon they are the wicked liquor burned up by the everlasting fire nothing approximately can enter the Russian fires of the wicked are everlasting and everlasting iron of his history to send is the righteous than are everlasting and everlasting fire but there is one now you have a handout I want to end up reading some point in the semester on this issue up forever and ever so your list of handouts and I bring out that there's only one passage that is particularly troubling on the issue of forever and ever in the entire Bible only one let's go there for a minute is in Revelation chapter twenty Revelation ten after one p.m. verse ten the Fed and the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever it doesn't say the beast and the false prophet are going to be tormented forever and ever that you can insert the word he before the word shall who is going to the suffering forever and ever this passage is the devil that was a similarly reflect both already ages and ages are here as I understand this verse that sin of Joe blow that is lost will cause him to burn perhaps for just an instant perhaps for days you know we can learn about that in the writing for example everyone suffers according to their deserts further works if there are people in the course of their time on earth earned a suffering that is measured in terms of many days yet there are some twenty million people and installment at least fifteen million angels or to be forever lost because of the work of one beating and that is and I can imagine that his suffering go on so much longer than that of any of the rest that it would be accurate to say that he is suffering for ages and ages who define different ages so you'll have to make into a metaphor but I'm not certain from some other passages I read that the devil won't be burning like some time after the new Jerusalem lands on earth revelation doesn't clarify how much time is involved in this and I'm not clarifying it I'm sending here's the only passages speaks about anyone burning for it for ages and ages in the entire Bible this is the only one is talking about the devil and that we have good reason from other passengers to expect the devil to burn a whole lot longer than anybody else that make sense to register if you want to read again where you can read it more slowly it's in the handout forever never turned back to Revelation fourteen Revelation fourteen and were looking at verse eleven and the smoke of their torment ascended up forever and ever and they have no rest day nor night by the word rest there is a noun not an adjective even though we like to read it the other way and day there is nearly an adverb but anyway what with the same when my same not much is now in the Adventists teach that God 's judgments are often related to the crime that they are punishing so we get the seven last plagues those that worship the sun her scores by the sun those that cause got people to bleed drink glide those that propagated darkness suffer under darkness knows that cooperated in deceiving the world are deceived by demons themselves in short it lags are fair and what is the plug and those he did not acknowledge God 's rest day is that they have no rest it's fair has just another hint at what the issues are about the end of time verse twelve here is the patience of the saints here are the David keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus it does appear by reading verse twelve that some people are going to abandon the faith of Jesus you see that implicitly stated in verse twelve that here there to keep the net where are those that don't keep those who don't worship the beast and is an measurement in those that endure the final test of the final trial is this the message of righteousness by faith indeed it is righteousness by faith is the message about the relation of the law to the gospel the message about the faith of works by love and here is fated simple and plain terms that share the people who keep the commandments and have faith of Jesus our faith in Jesus here are the faithful people to keep the Commandments that statements is a summary of the way the gospel works if you're going to stay that the message of eighteen eighty eight was the message of the third angel you're going to have to divorce it from doctrines like forensic justification that isn't here in revelation fourteen verse twelve talks about how in nineteen eighty eight that was the beginning of the fourth Angel the air the outpouring of the latter rain and someone that when I heard that they thought through what e-mail is being the fourth Angel are you saying that this was not was this the third Angels message and she wrote back it is very much on Sandy said is that the rails message and this is righteous by faith this doesn't include a funny doctrine forensic justification when what is that without your asking the idea that everyone has been justified across anyone hears this in the future and is concerned that I called that of funny doctrine I don't mean it derogatorily I verse thirteen and I heard a voice from Jesus feet I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me write Blessed are the dad which die in the Lord from henceforth ye a say of the spirit that they may rest from their labors and their works do follow them those are my road to die in the face of the third Angels message will be resurrected in a special Resurrection to see Jesus come again yes no I want say next is a you could've gathered that from looking at this passage because what happens immediately after the sales messages ritual of those who died from henceforth that is from the time of the strangled messages but which kind of people the dead which die in the Lord after hearing these three messages for the Lord so here the people who died in the face of this reveals messages have a particular blessing of the all people die in the Lord have a blessing yes but here is a particular one and just as God 's judgments are measured to the crime 's blessings are measured to the right doing so what did what does God offer to those were waiting for his coming and then died before it happens again to see his coming that's the blessing of notice that when they die that is what do they do in this verse that said they were asked and that he didn't notice in this verse the spirit talks but said her thirteen thousand the Spirit saith that they may rest from their labors and their works do follow them sounds like not immediately but apparently have a period of unconsciousness verse fourteen and I looked and behold a white cloud and upon the cloud one sat like the son of man having on his head a golden crown and in his hand a sharp sickle son Daniel used to select the Son of Man and is him and you could say the same here Jesus returns and send his angels to gather the wheat from the tears as he said and another angel came out of the temple crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud thrust in bicycle and read for the time is for indeed to read for the harvest of the earth was a say is right this doctrine is important it is not true that Jesus is going to come to the earth at a specified time regardless of whether or not his faithful people are ready it is not so he's waiting until the harvest of the earth is right until his work is finished he asked the lady sung to sleep so that meant he may do that he's done it in the past but he is not willing that any should be lost but that all should come to repentance that's why was the recount is long-suffering as being salvation in second Peter three this idea that ready or not here I come if you need some papal people will be caught not quite ready is bogus verse sixteen and he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth and the earth was reaped when you read a field when you're reading it as the grain after aiming for the question of why has the tears address next and another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven he also had been a sharp sickle and another angel came out from the altar which had power over fire and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle saying thrust in thy sharp sickle nose and attention verse eighteen where have we read about this altar before I was in the fifth Angels in the fifth seal where souls were saying crying out for vengeance now here comes a message from the altar and it's from Angela has power over over what over fire in other words here comes Angela has something to say about the exacting execution of the judgment and that Angela who is over the execution of judgments at this time to execute thrust then a sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth for her grapes are fully ripe and the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth and cast into the great wine press of the wrath of God and the winepress was trodden without the city and blood came out of the winepress we talked about this yesterday the volume of the blood so when the earth is wreaked in a way the harvest is right when probation closes and does God do anything for his righteous one probation closes you know he is drawn over than a protective shield he preserves vendor in the seven last plagues the wheat and the tears are separated as Christ appears in the clouds I guess I'm communicating the relation fourteen shows that there are too harvested in the world of the righteous and the wicked but doesn't really go into the details about how underwent you could get the picture here at the righteous go to heaven before the seven last plagues our poured out but you wouldn't want to get the idea because relations sixteen clarifies what time is now for Western relations sixteen verse fifteen for a minute just for the other side of this to harvest idea Revelation sixteen verse fifteen you should know that right now between those messages are binding people and bundles never heard that before their binding the week in bundles and their binding the tears and bundles there is unbinding our reading process going on right now Revelation sixteen verse fifteen behold icon as a thief blessed is he that walks shift and keep of his garments lest he walk naked and they see his shame I want to preach on this verse first of all workers this verse Paul Revelation sixteen it is after the first five flags in the middle of the six lag and prior to the seventh lag and what is Jesus say at this point about is coming about his feet coming is yet future behold icon as is the only asset question it another way which happens first the first five flags are the feet coming of Jesus the first life was called before the coming of Jesus this is relevant to the rapture theory the theory that teaches it just comes like a thief then you have the tribulation and then he comes in great glory but does this verse they specifically Jesus as after the first five flags during the sixth flag I'm still coming in my common coming how legacy is this coming follows the place used as Blessed is he that watching what does it mean to watch Jesus I don't watch and pray you are not a temptation the best passenger and over that part of me there is a chapter two chapter two and were looking at verse one in the chapter just before this advantage has dared to challenge God regarding justice he's asked God why do let the wicked prosper got answered on a sent the Babylonians to punish the wicked by connect instead of the Babylonians themselves deserve punishment where you really can resolve this and you know talking back to God ought to make you a little fearful and that's why says we doesn't chapter two verse one I will stand up on my watch and sets me up on the tower and will watch to see what is he watching for first what he will say to me what's one thing we should be watching for the watchtower for life as it were watching the same way saying were paid attention to his communications were watching away saying but that's not all and what I shall say answer when I am reproved what's in a community watching for me to watch our spirit because when God rebukes us it's one were in grave danger of making a big mistake we do watch what he says and then watch our own spirits when revealed to make sure that we respond appropriately with ability and repentance for Macrovision sixteen on Friday back to illustrate you what it means practically to watch the watchmen got says the watcher hearts response and you are review Revelation sixteen verse fifteen behold I come as a thief blessed is he that watcher and keep that his garments lest he walk naked the fact you're for the Christ's righteousness is evidence that you're always going to half-price righteousness if you don't keep your garments you might lose them is very clear verse fifteen lest he walk naked and they see his shame this is the thing we don't understand too well about the righteousness of Jesus it's how visible it is to others for your Bibles to Colossians chapter three Colossians chapter three are looking at verse five mortify therefore organized for this reason put to death your members which are upon the earth that is the part of your body and then it speaks not body parts but of actions fornication uncleanness in Oregon affection evil can cope a sense and covetousness let me start over and been released to you differently passion for sexual immorality on clean desires are dirty desires in Oregon that's affections or desires being involved chemical defense OR desires and disobedience desires for things otherwise known as covetousness website is that just nice affection can cope with sense and in this context for occasional uncleanness are all references to our passions and our desires they're just different words can go the distance means desire affectionate means desire or passion what is it that were mortifying in this verse where we put him to death it is our appetites our passions our desires for which things sake the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience we just been reading about the wrath of God light of the seven last plagues and then it's because of their evil desires passions and appetites that they have not the Bateman indulgence opposed mortifying into which you also blocked some time when you lived in them that is when you were children disobedience you are serving your desires verse eight but now you also put off all these anger wrath malice evil speaking felt the communication out of your mouth is an evil speaking site for longer life and blaspheme Allah time the Greek word blaspheming just means evil speaking what are you doing these things you put them off it sounds like these are dirty garment on you verse nine line not one to another scene that you have was a say put off the old man with his deeds firsthand and if that was a say put on the new man which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him you have a government you're taking off and a garment you are putting on verse twelve put on therefore as the chosen of God holy and beloved bowels of mercies this is the idea about Christ roadkill don't get our bowels on our side or the insight you know from outside your debt bowels of mercies when you put a price righteousness interchange on the inside but a change in the inside that is such a change that can be seen on the outside because you're putting on mercies and kindness and humility and neatness and long-suffering those are inside virtues are very apparent on the outside of the mail forbearing one another and forgiving one another if any and as a quarrel against any English price for gauging you so also do ye and above all these things put on charity verse sixteen let the word of God dwell in you richly will want to communicate is that when Jesus covers Eugene Pruett with his righteousness when he says Eugene that you are righteous that his work goes on a mission to make it so and I am free about plaintiff put on not just a covering the bowels of mercies as a lack of God to put on humility and kindness there is a robe of righteousness I am so aware some people will dare to approach Jesus without it having thought that they were perfectly fine with a covering a cloak is the word I say uses for their false idea the cover wickedness with a cloak Jesus never agreed to make a whitened sepulcher out of me he agreed to change me and wattages Warren Revelation sixteen fifteen lest they walk naked and they see his shame her lest he walk naked and they see his shame listen angels and men can see the shameful life of a man who is not filled with the righteousness of Jesus Revelation chapter fifteen and looking at verse one and I saw another sign in heaven great and marvelous the seven hundred angels having the seven last flags for endowment is filled the wrath of God this is an idea I want to see an something about the wrath of God we might not even come back here your Bibles to Micah Micah were looking at verse six we read in Micah yesterday Morse five about learning the righteousness of God nor that things in this class is a different class mica six verse five I talked about that in some class yesterday but doing the righteousness of the Lord destroyed anyone okay this year I'd like you look down the verse eight now she has shown the own man what is good and what doth the Lord require of the inverse eggs you should know that in the context that means what does the Lord require of the if you want to be free from your sins that's was asked in verse six and seven when I get them bring him thousands of our offerings and cats a year old and rivers of oil or give my firstborn child my transgressions of my soul what is God requiring that you want to be right with God verse eight says that you do justly Georgia selected that it don't think that's one of the conditions that surely has and that you love mercy in the same class you forget just that if you don't forgive others newer your heavenly father forgive you as if God is change his requirements somewhat and that you walk humbly with your God per se doesn't explain how God justly atones for your set we learned that other passages of Versace explains in very explicit terms what God does require he requires that you do right that you love mercy and that you humbly submit to live according the way he says walk only with your God is another way to say faith but what does it mean to love mercy listening to love mercy look at chapter seven and were looking down at verse eighteen Micah seven and verse eighteen Oregon idea what it means to love mercy who is a God like unto the net heartedness iniquity and passes by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage to demonstrate available how you pacify the transgression of the remnant of his heritage he retain us not his anger was a say for ever because he was a say life is inverse was at hospital seven last plagues they fell up the wrath of God he delights in mercy that mean he's never angry nobody needs he does not retain his anger forever there is a fine night and two God 's wrath why is there a finite and went into the wrath of an infinite God because he delighted in mercy what he requires of us is what he does himself and there should be in and also to our rack and our anger what kind of vendors got suggested in the family said don't let the sun go down upon your wrath to love mercy is to have a raft that does not persist three ten if not his anger forever is a sustained argument against eternal burning hell it helps understand even for Lucifer who suffers for ages and ages that he will be brought to ashes in the side of those look narrowly upon as we learn from Ezekiel twenty eight and gathered from Isaiah fourteen star heads for a closing prayer our father in heaven I thank you that you delight mercy I thank you that your wrath is one that does not endure forever and that for your run that you find a way to Passover their sins that you pardon the iniquity I ask that you would help each of us here as we meet your requirements to walk humbly with you to love mercy to do justly ask for this gift in the name of Jesus and
