Seventh-day Adventist, as well as many other Christians, have been anticipating the second coming of Christ for many years.
The parable of the 10 virgins teaches that the bridegroom’s return would be delayed. So what is at the heart of this delay? I believe that there are two reasons. First God people are not ready. Second, the three angels’ message of (Revelation 14) has not been carried through-out the world.
We read in (Number 27:15, 16) that the Bible indicates the word spirits refer to living men and women. The Bible also indicates that the term prison, or prisoners, can refer to men and women under Satan’s power of sin and deception. Hence, we see from Scripture that is was Christ, by the Holy Spirit, speaking through Noah, who prepared the inhabitants of the earth for the flood. So it will be in the last days just before Jesus’ second coming (Matthew 24:37). Christ will speak through the Holy Spirit through Spirit-filled Christians to prepare for the Second Advent.
I have been a Seventh-day Adventist for some years now and I am now a pastor for the Seventh-day Adventist Chruch in Valdez, Alaska, and as we talked about on day 9 and 17 we can put money in all the programs, and methods we want to but in the end, it will be the Spirit-filled Christian that carries the three angels message to the world.
Supporting Scripture; (1 Peter 3:18-20), (Isa. 42:6, 7), Must read (Revelation 14),
