“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4.
“The prophecies in the eighteenth of Revelation will soon be fulfilled. During the proclamation of the third angel’s message, “another angel” is to “come down from heaven, having great power,” and the earth is to be “lightened with his glory.” The Spirit of the Lord will so graciously bless consecrated human instrumentalities that men, women, and children will open their lips in praise and thanksgiving, filling the earth with the knowledge of God, and with His unsurpassed glory, as the waters cover the sea.
Those who have held the beginning of their confidence firm unto the end will be wide-awake during the time that the third angel’s message is proclaimed with great power. During the loud cry, the church, aided by the providential interpositions of her exalted Lord, will diffuse the knowledge of salvation so abundantly that light will be communicated to every city and town. The earth will be filled with the knowledge of salvation. So abundantly will the renewing Spirit of God have crowned with success the intensely active agencies, that the light of present truth will be seen flashing everywhere. …
The message that means so much to the dwellers upon the earth will be heard and understood. Men will know what truth is. Onward, and still onward the work will advance, until the whole earth shall have been warned. And then shall the end come.” –Maranatha, p. 218.
Questions to think about:
Do I study seriously to find out by experience what the truth is?
Do we wish with an honest heart to diffuse the knowledge of salvation so abundantly that light will be communicated to every city and town?
Do we understand that God invites us to spread the pure truth of salvation in such manner that all the earth will be filled with the knowledge of salvation?
