The great prince which standees for the children of thy people, and there will come a time of trouble, such as never was given that then, as there are people, so far, but saved at the time of your people, all of which were found to be written in the book “(Daniel 12:1).
When finished preaching to the third angel, God’s mercy will leave the wicked inhabitants of the land. The people of God made his case: he received the “latter rain”, “joy of the LORD,” and prepared for the coming hour of trial. The angels in heaven in a hurry in all directions.
Angel, who has returned from the earth, announces that his work is finished, the world is subject to final test, and all who turned out to be true to God’s commandments, received the “seal of God.” Then Jesus ceases His mediator ministry in the heavenly sanctuary. He raises his hand and said with a loud voice: “It is finished.” And all of heaven can remove their crowns at His solemn declaration: “unjust, let him do unrighteousness still filthy still be filthy, and the righteous, let him be righteous still, and the holy still be holy” (Rev. 22:11). The fate of each is solved – for life or death. Christ accomplished the work of reconciliation for his people and his sins are blotted out. The number of his subjects abound, “the kingdom and dominion, and greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven,” will be given to the heirs of salvation, and Jesus would reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
When Christ leaves the sanctuary, the earth plunged into darkness. At that terrible time the righteous must live in the face of the holy God without an advocate. Nothing will deter the wicked, and Satan get unlimited power over the unrepentant. God’s patience came to an end. The world has rejected His grace, His love despised and trampled upon His law. The time of grace for the wicked end. The Spirit of God, whom they stubbornly resisted, finally gave them up. Deprived of the cover of divine mercy, they found themselves at the mercy of an evil enemy. Satan then plunge the inhabitants of the earth in the last great sorrow. As soon as the angels of God cease to hold the fierce winds of human passion, played out all hostile elements. The whole world will suffer fatal punishment, more terrible than that which befell the ancient Jerusalem.
A single angel destroyed all the firstborn of Egypt, tears filled the whole earth. When David took a census of the people that have sinned, and before God, in punishment for the sin of one angel made dreadful havoc. The holy angels will of God destroy the wicked – the same demons will come and that God allow this. Dark forces are already ready and waiting only to the divine permission, to devastate the earth.
Thought upon God’s law has been accused of that, they have guided the judgments of God upon the world, and now they will be regarded as the worst culprits of natural disasters, hatred, bloodshed, which will fill all the land of misery. The power that accompanies the last warning will atheists into a rage and their anger will flare up against all those who took the news and Satan would stir up even more the spirit of hatred and persecution.
The priests and the people did not know that the place of God’s presence has deserted – the Lord has left the Jews. Being in the power of Satan, and bogged down in the most terrible and destructive passions, they still considered themselves the elect of God. Serving in the church continued its desecrated altars sacrifices, and every day requested for the blessing of God to the people who had been guilty of shedding the precious blood of the Son of God, and continued to infringe on the lives of His servants and apostles. So in a time when the sanctuary will be a final solution and the fate of the world irrevocably determined, the people of the earth will not know about it. people, we finally left the Spirit of God will continue to adhere to religious formalities and rituals, satanic zeal, which the Prince of Evil will give them to fulfill their evil designs, takes the form of jealousy for God.
As the fight breaks out around the Sabbath throughout the Christian world and the religious authority united with the state to enforce the observance on Sunday, the persistent refusal to submit to an insignificant minority nation-wide demand will make it the object of universal disgust. And is decided that this handful of people who are resisting the decisions of church and state law, there should be no leniency, it is better to suffer it than to plunge all the people in the confusion and lawlessness. Eighteen hundred years ago a similar charge was brought against Christ, “the heads of the people.” “It is better to us – said Caiaphas, – that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish” (John 11:50). This argument may seem convincing, and soon will issue a decree against the devout Sabbath of the fourth commandment, which declares them worthy of the severest penalties and give the people freedom after a certain time before its death. In our civilized age of Protestant dissenters will just deal with those who honor Divine commandment, as in his time there were Catholics.
The people of God will then transfer such suffering and grief, the prophet is described as a miserable time of Jacob: “So the Lord said, his voice trembling, of fear, we hear, not the world … Those all pale. Oh, woe! That day is great, there was no like it: it – even the time of Jacob, but he will be saved out of it “(Jeremiah 30:5-7).
Satan accused Jacob before the angels of God, declaring his right to kill him for his sin, he led Esau to oppose him, and all night long battle Satan tried to persuade the patriarch of an acute sense of guilt to disappoint him and deprive of hope in God. Jacob was driven almost to despair, knowing that without help from above, he will die. He sincerely repented of his great sin and cried out to God’s grace. He has not abandoned its goal, but clung to the Angel and begged him insistently, with bitter tears, yet won.
