In Rev. 14:6-13 you see these three angels, with three different messages. As I have said before, angels in the Book of Revelations are bringing you a message from God. In chapter fourteen these three angels, have three messages from God, for the Saints on earth, during the tribulation. These three messages will be the three main messages of the Saints, during the tribulation.
Remember, we are still involved with the trumpets which are sounded for Gods people. One of the reasons for sounding trumpets, in the Bible, is for the recieving of instructions. The messages these angels are announcing, are the messages the Saints will be spreading throughout the tribulation.
Message # 1) The first angels message is in Rev. 14:6+7. "And I saw another angel flying in mid heaven, having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people; and he said with a loud voice, "Fear God, and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come, and worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and the springs of waters".
This is the first and foremost message of the Saints during the tribulation, as it has been the first and foremost message of the church from the beginning. "Having the eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth". Could or would Gods foremost message, through the Saints, be anything else? Would it change? Would it change during the tribulation? From the beginning of the Church, this has been our message, and it will be so to the very end of the tribulation.
As I have said before, the worldly, carnal, and fleshly members of the church will go THROUGH the tribulation. Once they see that the tribulation has started and that they have gone into it, they will become the most powerful, spiritual, christian force since the beginning of the church age. This will be the first and foremost message during that time, as it has been from the beginning.
Message # 2) The second angels message is in Rev. 14:8. "And another angel, a second one followed saying, "fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who has made all the nations drink of the wine of the passion of her immorality."
This will be the second message which the Saints will be spreading. The fall of Babylon! What an important and powerful message for the Saints to announce. The world will be in confusion as to the things which are 'COMING' upon the earth as seen in Luke 21:25+26 "And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth dismay among nations, 'IN PERPLEXITY' at the roaring of the sea and waves (from the asteroid hitting in the ocean), men fainting from fear and the EXPECTATION of the things which ARE COMING UPON THE WORLD;".
The world will not understand what 'these things' mean. The church will finally have her eyes opened from the blindness you see in Rev. 3:17. They will see, and know, as they preach the gospel to "every nation and tribe and tongue and people;" as seen in verse six of chapter fourteen.
The Saints will be declaring, that the world powers that be, have fallen, thus warning the world concerning the next angels message. Which leads us to the third angel!
Message # 3) The third angels message is in Rev. 14:9-13. This is a very powerful, yet trying, message for the world and for the Saints.
Rev. 14:9-13 "And another angel, a third one followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or upon his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strenght in the cup of His anger; and he will 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 goes up forever and ever; and they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name."
Here is the trying part for the Saints.
Verses 12+13 "Here is 'the perseverance' "OF THE SAINTS" who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Yeshua (Jesus). And I heard a voice from heaven, saying, "Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on!!! "Yes" says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow with them."
In regards to verses 12+13 we must also read Rev. 13:7-10, as they go hand in hand.
Rev. 13:7-10 "And it was given to him (the beast) to 'MAKE WAR WITH "THE SAINTS" and to "OVERCOME THEM"; and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him (the Saints preach the gospel to the same). And all who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain. "IF ANYONE HAS AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR." If anyone is 'destined' for captivity, to captivity he goes; if anyone kills with the sword, with the sword he must be killed. Here is the 'PERSEVERANCE' and the 'FAITH' "of the saints".
First of all, I would like to ask how ANY christian, could read these verses and say that 'ALL' the church was raptured 'BEFORE' the tribulation!! And if you think that Jews (as Jews) will preach the gospel, to 'ALL THE WORLD', every peoples, every nation, and in every tongue, and do this during the 'SHORT and 'turbulent' times of the tribulation, you are being as blind as can be. No, its clear, all, or part of the church, is still here during the tribulation and the reign of the beast. And whatever you want to believe about these Saints, I can tell you this. They 'ARE CHRISTIANS', they are 'HUMAN BEINGS' and they have the same weaknesses and fealings as you and I. They also have to do, what Yeshua (Jesus) said that we would be called to do. And that is lay down their lives as He did. Thats why the word mentions Him giving up His life in Rev. 13:8 in the middle of this message.
The third angels message has to do with warning the Saints, and the world, about the beast, his mark, and the penalty for taking it, or 'NOT' taking it. It also points out that some are 'DESTINED' for captivity and that if we 'take up the sword', then we will 'die by the sword'.
Have any of you ever asked yourselves if you could pay the price that the early church, and others around the world now, have to pay to follow the Lamb? If the world was suddenly different for you (and soon it will be), could you, would you, give up your life? Would you 'grab a gun' and 'PROTECT YOURSELF? What about your family, your spouse, your kids? How wonderful His grace is. He does'nt say your lost if you do (take up the sword), He knows our weakness. He says that if we do take up the sword, then we will surely die by the sword. Yet if we deny Him and take the mark of the beast and worship him, to save our lives, then we will be lost forever.
Some will 'take up the sword' and fight. These will die by the sword. Some are destined to be captured and most likely die. And still some will go on PREACHING these three messages throughout the tribulation.
Three messages from almighty God! Three messages for His people. Three messages, through these three angels, from Almighty God, for His people to preach during the tribulation. You see, at the ending of this age, there will be this great pressure put upon all mankind, to 'MAKE A CHOICE'!
Will they (the world) listen to the Saints as they preach these three messages? Or will they will follow the beast and take his mark? Will the Saints take up the sword to protect themselves? Or will we give up our lives if need be? If the tribulation starts, and you are here, will your faith be shaken? So many christians (esp. in America) think that God, would not, could not, and should not, have them suffer death or be tortured as christians. If it comes to them, through the tribulation, and they are here, during times which require them to make such choices, what will it do to their faith. You see, the 'church in Babylon' has been safe from all of 'these things', as they live in the safety of Babylon, which allows and encourages all people to serve their own Gods. Either way choices must soon be made
