The First Angel’s Message was to remind God’s people fear God
and worship Him as Creator, because the judgment is coming.
The First Angel’s Message is not only a message of judgment,
but also a message of the “restoration of all things.” It is the Elijah message,
the final reformation that would separate the remnant of spiritual Israel
from the world, and prepare a people for the coming of the Lord.
Revelation 14:6-7 (KJV)
6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven,
having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them
that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred,
and tongue, and people
7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him;
for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that
made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
