The love of God for man through the gift of His Son is a boundless ocean that will never be exhausted. In the life and death of Jesus we see such mercy, kindness and love. It is a theme that enobles the soul that contemplates it with a repentant heat. It challenges our selfishness and offers us hope of everlasting life.
This connects to the First Angel that has the everlasting gospel to give to the world. Rev 14:6
We are made in the image of God and His Son for God said to His Son - "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." Eternal life consists in knowing the only true God and Jesus Christ His Son. John 17:3 The majority of the Christian world has rejected God and His Son in favour of the three persons in One God Trinity. This does not exist in Scripture and was not the God of the Adventist Pioneers.
1 Cor 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
This world is patterned on the source and channel relationship of Father and Son. This is the call of the First Angel to Fear or Reverence God - the only True God and His Son. Rev 14:7
We are made in the image of God and His Son. Our knowledge of their relationship speaks to our relationships on earth. How should relationships be structured for the maximum blessing of our society?
Revealing the loving and merciful character of our Father in Heaven Through the Lord Jesus Christ. Christ declares that He glorified His Father on earth. John 17:4 Therefore to give glory to God we must reflect a character that is just like Christ was here on earth to receieve the Seal of God. Christ never killed anyone and He kept His Father's commandments that promise us that when we have the Spirit of God - We will not kill, just like our Father in heaven. God does not take life in an act of violence or anger.
This is a response to the First Angel's call to Give Glory to Him! Rev 14:7
The Sabbath was made for man as a wonderful gift of the Spirit. God sanctified the Sabbath with His presence. The Sabbath brings to us the Spirit of God in greater measure than any other day of the week. The Sabbath is magnified in the Lord's feasts that are revealed in Leviticus 23. In the Sabbath, New Moon's and feasts we receive the refreshing from the presence of the Lord. This is the First Angel's call to worship Him who made Heaven and earth the seas and fountains of waters. Rev 14:7
The Object of the New Covenant
Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law [Torah] in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Our Father wants to write His Torah in our hearts. This includes all of God's statutes and judgments.
Mal 4:4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
