Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. II Timothy 2:15
2ND QUARTER-THREE COSMIC MESSAGES
Amid the destructive ideologies that have arisen over the last century and a half, God did not leave the world without a witness to His truth. He raised up the Seventh-day Adventist Church to proclaim His last-day truth to the world—the three angels’ messages. These messages, at their core, refute the errors and misconceptions promoted by Nietzsche, Marx, and Darwin.
The three angels’ messages—this quarter’s study focus—are, in a sense, the marching orders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. At their core, they are the gospel, pure and simple, but the gospel in the context of “present truth” (2 Pet. 1:12, NKJV).
Lesson 11: The Seal of God and Mark of the Beast: Part 1

Memory Text: “Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, ‘Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads’ ” (Revelation 7:2, 3, NKJV).
