There is a special message that is going out to the entire world. It is a last day warning message that is being given by angels who work through God’s last day people to awaken the world to God’s Biblical truths and make ready a people for Jesus coming again. This message comes a response to the mark of the beast crisis mentioned in the previous chapter of Revelation.
“And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 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: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus” (Revelation 14:6-12).
A lot of the signs of Jesus’ return have already been, and are being, fulfilled. But we cannot know the exact day or hour of His return. We can read the signs to know that He is coming back soon and that we are living at the final moments of this earth. God is longsuffering with mankind. He does not want anyone to be lost.
“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:32-36).
The Lord will only come as a thief in the night to those who are unprepared (1 Thessalonians 5:2-4). Satan has invented many false teachings about Jesus the Messiah and His second coming. There’s no reason to be deceived. We only need to prayerfully study His word and we can find the truth. A person should not take my word for it nor the word of anyone else. They should take what I say and what others say and test them with a “thus saith the Lord.” Be like the Bereans who “were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so” (Acts 17:11). Search the Scriptures, for the Lord is coming soon.
