Characteristics of the third angel’s message – 1. The present truth

There needs to be a cleansing of the heart, the feelings, the sympathies, the words, in reference to the most momentous subjects–the Lord God, eternity, truth. What is the message to be
given at this time? It is the third angel’s message. {TM 89.2}

The third angel’s message, embracing the messages of the first and second angels, is the message for this time. We are to raise aloft the banner on which is inscribed: “The commandments of
God, and the faith of Jesus.” The world is soon to meet the great Lawgiver over His broken law. This is not the time to put out of sight the great issues before us. God calls upon His people to magnify the law and make it honorable. {8T 197.2}

We want to keep close to the truth that is for our times–present truth. We want to know what is the truth now. We claim to believe the third angel’s message; we claim that the angel was flying through the midst of heaven proclaiming the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. {1SAT 66.3}
