Identifying the True Church Proclaiming The Elijah Message
From Scripture

Daniel 2

Dan 2:1 And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.
Dan 2:2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to show the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.

Dan 2:10 The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man upon the earth that can show the king's matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.
Dan 2:11 And it is a rare thing that the king requireth, and there is none other that can show it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.

Dan 2:19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

Dan 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
Dan 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.
Dan 7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

Daniel 8

Dan 8:11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice (perpetual covenant, Isa 24:5, Exo. 31:16, the Sabbath) was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.
Dan 8:12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice (perpetual covenant) by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practiced, and prospered.
Dan 8:13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice (perpetual covenant), and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
Dan 8:14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
Dan 8:15 And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man.
Dan 8:16 And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision.
Dan 8:17 So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.

Dan 8:26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days.

Revelation 12

Rev 12:4 ... and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

Rev 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
Rev 12:15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
Rev 12:16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

Rev 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Rev 22:9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

The Elijah Message

1 Ki 18:17 And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?
1 Ki 18:18 And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.

James 5:17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
James 5:18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

Mal 3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

Mal 4:4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
Mal 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

Mat 3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
Mat 3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Mat 3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

Mat 17:11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
Mat 17:12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
Mat 17:13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

Mark 1:2 As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
Mark 1:3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Mark 1:4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

Luke 4:25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;

Luke 7:24 And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
Luke 7:25 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts.
Luke 7:26 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.
Luke 7:27 This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
Luke 7:28 For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.

The prophet Elijah fled to the wilderness for refuge from Ahab and Jezebel while withholding the rain for 3 1/2 years (1 Ki 17:1, James 5:17), and after confronting Ahab regarding his forsaking the law of God (1 Ki 18:18), and having Jezebel's false prophets of Baal slain (1 Ki 18:40). Jezebel was a harlot (2 Ki 9:22), and issued a death decree against Elijah (1 Ki 19:2). Elijah's message was one of repentance, obedience to God's law, and to serve and worship only the true God (1 Ki 18:21), which is to say, Elijah preached restoration of true worship in a time of gross apostasy.

John the Baptist was imprisoned by Herod Antipas at the insistence of Herodias (Matt 14:3). Herodias was an adulteress (Mark 6:18), and had Herod put John to death (Mark 6:22-27) with the assistance of her daughter. John the Baptist preached in the spirit of the prophet Elijah in the wilderness: repentance, the law (Matt 14:4), and the imminent coming of the Lord.

Like the previous typology, the end time Elijah faces three adversaries (Rev 16:13), but on a larger scale:

The Elijah Message: Restoring the Law of God

The Elijah message of restoration of, and obedience to God's law (1 Ki 18:18, Mal 4:4, Matt 17:11), is proclaimed again on a global scale just prior to the second coming of the Lord, by the true church emerging from the wilderness. As the previous events show, the Elijah message will prompt the apostate harlot mother to use her harlot daughters to force the kings of the earth to persecute the final Elijah. The final Elijah gospel message is recorded in Revelation 14:

Revelation 14

Rev 14:6 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,
Rev 14:7 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.
Rev 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
Rev 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Rev 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Conclusion: These Are The Days Of The Elijah Message.

 Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

Isa 42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

Joel 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
Joel 2:29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

God raises up prophets at both ends of major prophecies. The initial prophet announces the prophecy to come. At the fulfillment, another prophet of God is raised up to announce and explain it fully. It is only the true church that has this gift of the spirit of prophecy

John 13:19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.
John 14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

* Methuselah would die, and then the flood would come.
Methuselah means "death and sent."

Methuselah was 187 when he had Lamech, and lived 782 years more.  Genesis 5:25-26.
Lamech had Noah when he was 182.   Genesis 5:28-29.
The Flood came in Noah's 600th year.   Genesis 7:6,11.
187 + 182 + 600 = 969, Methuselah's age when he died.  Genesis 5:27.

The doctrinally pure remnant church with the gift of prophecy emerges in North America after 1798 A.D., and openly proclaims that according to Daniel's prophecy, judgment began in 1844 A.D., and that keeping the Ten Commandments, specifically the seventh day Sabbath, is the seal of God that gives immunity to the mark of the beast. This is the prophesied Elijah message proclaimed "before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD." It is present truth that unequivocally identifies the Seventh-Day Adventist Church as the true end time church of Bible prophecy.

The Danger of Rejecting the Lord's Prophet.

Noah's warning of the impending flood was a message from God that was rejected by the antediluvian world. Those who believed and heeded Noah entered the ark by faith and were saved. Those who rejected Noah and his prophetic warning perished in the flood.

Moses and Aaron were challenged by Korah and 250 leaders of Israel who rebelled against them (Num 16), rejecting their divine appointment. The rebels all perished, Korah, Dathan, and Abiram with their families when the earth opened up and swallowed them (Num 16:32), and the 250 when fire fell from heaven and consumed them (Num 16:35). The following day a multitude of the people still opposed Moses and Aaron, and accused them of killing the men of God (Num 16:41). The Lord sent a plague among the rebels, and 14,700 perished that day.

When the priests and the elders of the temple challenged Jesus regarding His authority, He asked them about John the Baptist, was he a prophet sent by heaven (Mat 21:25-27)? Rather than publicly reject John as a prophet, because they feared the people who believed John a prophet, they said they did not know. Jesus then states that tax collectors and harlots believed John to be a prophet and repented, and they would be in the kingdom (Matt 21: 31-32). Jesus then told the parable of the vineyard, which represented Israel. The husbandmen of the vineyard beat and killed the servants of the owner (prophets) sent to them, and even killed the owner's son (Matt 21:37-39). Jesus was prophesying that because Israel had rejected the prophets, they would also reject and crucify Him, the Son of God.. As a result, the husbandmen would be destroyed (Mat 21:41). Jesus characterized those who rejected His prophets as serpents and vipers:

Mat 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Mat 23:34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
Mat 23:35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
Mat 23:36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

If you do not receive the testimony of the prophets sent by the Lord, you also reject the Lord who sent them.

Luke 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

John 5:45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
John 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
John 5:47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

Mat 10:40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
Mat 10:41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.
