Biography for Pastor Joseph Salajan
Pastor Joe was born in the little town of Crasna (Romania). Ever since he was a child, he has been fascinated by the unique connection between pastors and their special book, the Bible. When at the age of 7 he received his first little Bible from a brave pastor who was able to procure it for him in spite of the interdictions of the communist regime, he felt special and decided one day he would become a pastor.

After serving as a Pastor for 8 years in Romania, in 2013 he immigrated to the USA. He currently serves as Lead Pastor of Plantation Seventh-day Adventist Church. Along with his wonderful wife Anda and their gorgeous daughter Alessandra, he enjoys proclaiming God’s grace and ministering to his fellows.

Pastor Joe is currently enrolled in a doctoral Program (DMin in Preaching) with Andrews University. His hobbies are languages, music, and poetry.

Sermon Theme: Three Angels’ Message
Social Media Tags to share with your friends:

A Big Chiasm

The Book of Revelation is a big chiasm (a literary structure that looks like a
mountain) constructed of 7 sections. The centerpiece (chs. 12-14) is also a chiasm.

Right in the middle is the mountaintop! The highest/brightest point of the entire book… And what is on the top? Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand…

The Most Important

What’s more important, the messenger that carries the message, or the one that sends the message/the one the message is about? The most important is the Lamb! The angels only important because of the message they carry: the Lamb on Mt. Zion!
First Angel's Message

Please notice: the first thing we know about the first angel flying in the midst of heaven is that he carries the everlasting Gospel. This is crucial: the three angels’ message has to be proclaimed in the context of the preaching of the everlasting gospel!!! The three angels’ message aside from the everlasting gospel is a false proclamation!

Why is it called everlasting? Because there are other gospels in circulation! Not all good news is the good news!!! The Gospel is good news in a bad context. Things are bad in our world; the inhabitants of the earth are looking for a gospel… good news.

When you look at the structure of this section, you can see that God’s enemy (the demonic trio) is also working on spreading around his “good news.” The beast is the good news! Worship the beast! Who’s like the beast? Take on the mark of the beast…

The angel that carries the good-good news… 7 saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water. (Rev. 14:6-7 NKJ)
Second Angel's Message

Please notice that this angel doesn’t shout with a loud voice. Later, in ch. 18, it is portrayed as shouting the same message with a loud voice… followed by another voice from heaven saying, Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. (Rev. 18:4 NKJ)

Babylon, both in the Old and in the New Testament, is a symbol of rebellion
against God. The first founder of the city of Babylon (the tower of Babel) was Nimrod, the mighty hunter before/against the Lord. His name comes from the Hebrew verb “marad” which means to rebel: going against God’s word/will.

Babylon means confusion, chaos. It is the symbolic city of the chaos that results from rebellion against God. It’s a city in opposition to Jerusalem. In Rev. 17 Babylon is a woman, called a harlot, that is riding the beast… She is a symbol of a false religious system that instead of worshipping the Lamb promotes the worship of the beast.

Are you aware that there is a worldwide movement that promotes the idea that all denominations within Christianity should unite and, on a wider scale, all world-religions should be united under the same umbrella?

The question is, however, is this unity produced by the unifying power of the everlasting Gospel? When the everlasting gospel is accepted, those that follow the Lamb/those that belong to Jerusalem gather together. But any “unity” is not produced by the power of the everlasting Gospel, is chaos!!! The angel says: Babylon is fallen!

The third angel’s message speaks about future realities…
Third Angel’s Message

The 3 angels represent the saints! They are us!!! John explains:

The movie is interrupted:
Remembering the Decree

You may remember from chapter 13 that in those days when the mark of the beast/of the false worship will be enforced, there will a death decree against those that will refuse it. The voice from heaven brings the news that if someone will be killed… nothing is lost! The time for their reward is coming. The recompense is theirs.

What Is the Three Angels Message?

The three angels message is not (merely) about preaching on a platform. It is not about 3ABN… or other TV stations that preach the everlasting Gospel. In every age, the obedience, allegiance, and praise of God’s people are mission instruments. If we live our lives as God’s remnant… we are like angels flying in the middle of heaven…
