The Great Second Advent Movement: Its Rise and Progress


Chapter 11 — The Second Angel’s Message

“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.” 1 GSAM 171.1

“Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.” 2 GSAM 171.2

The Lord through his ministers had stirred the world with the message, “The hour of his judgment is come,”—a message on which all his professed people might have united if they would. This was the first call to the marriage “supper.” It had been declared “to them that were bidden.” 3 As this call was set aside with various excuses, a second call was given, corresponding to the second angel’s message. 4 By this call the Lord separated a people to go forth to the end of time with the advancing light of his truth. GSAM 171.3
