The world is full of confusing sensations, experiences, and contrasts. There is a dichotomy or mutually exclusive and contradictory mismatch between good and bad, pain and pleasure, life and death. The Bible has the only logical and consistent explanation for where humanity came from, how we got here, and where we are going. It is true, the Bible is difficult to understand. The Bible itself warns us that we must study carefully to understand.

15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15

We will find the truth when we seek with all our hearts.

29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
Deuteronomy 4:29

The Bible warns us there is a devil who is a thief, which opposes us and seeks to steal, kill, and destroy. God wants to give us eternal abundant life.

10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
John 10:10

The devil is a liar who deceives and hides the truth from those who are not diligent.

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
John 8:44

There is a special prophetic message of warning for the end of time. This message is found in the last book of the New Testament. This message is to the whole world. The message is given in four parts at four different stages. There are four messengers symbolized as angels. The message of the Four Angels begins with the message from the Three Angels of Revelation 14. The addition of the message from the Fourth Angel of Revelation 18 completes the final message to the world before probation closes for all mankind.

The beginning message of the Three Angels is a prophecy of a great revival and reformation, which begins the time of the end. The prophetic fulfillment began as an outgrowth of the Great Awakening of the first half of the nineteenth century, which climaxed with the Millerite Revival of 1831-1844. This revival ended with the Great Disappointment of October 22, 1844, which was believed to be the Day of Atonement in that year.

Step by step God led His people who would be faithful to His truth forward out of the Great Apostasy of the Dark Ages. The message of the first angel led to the Great Awakening. After the Great Disappointment, the message of the second angel began to lead a remnant to abandon the apostasies of the Dark Ages. The message of the third angel warns us and prepares us for the coming persecution and tribulation of the final conflict. The message of each of the four angels builds on the message of the previous angel. The message of the fourth angel specifically refers back to the message of the second angel, which was not completely followed. This message leads His people out of the final errors of apostasy to a complete restoration of all truth.

End Time Present Truth

Present Truth for the 21st century is not the same as it was in the 19th century or even the 20th century. Truth is progressive. All the truth of God is far greater than we see and so much has been lost to apostasy through the Dark Ages. Our Savior warns us of the error and calls us to obedience.

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:17-19

We must depend primarily on the Word of God as our source for truth. Do not depend on the pastor or the church leaders as the source for truth. We can look to our pastors and leaders for teaching and guidance but we must never let them become a substitute for following the Word of God. Heed the warning of God.

5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.
7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
Jeremiah 17:5-10

Our Savior contradicts the lie of this world and says that we can be perfect.

48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Matthew 5:48

The Bible calls for a renewing of our mind and a turning away from the ways of the world.

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Romans 12:2

The perfect truth is there, it is coming, and it will replace error.

10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
1 Corinthians 13:10

The devil tempts us to abandonment to sinful and destructive pleasures and desires.

7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Galatians 6:7-8
Do not accept human traditions. Do not accept false teachings. Learn the truth for yourself.
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15
