Upholding the official beliefs and doctrines of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and spreading the three angels' message of Revelation 14:6-12
Note 1. - "To my mind this precious doctrine - for such I must call it - of the return of the Lord to this earth is taught in the New Testament as clearly as any other doctrine in it; yet I was in the church fifteen or sixteen years before I ever heard a sermon on it. . . . Now I can see the reason for this. The devil does not want us to see this truth; for nothing would wake up the church so much. The moment a man takes hold of the truth that Jesus Christ is coming back again to receive His followers to Himself, this world loses its hold on him. Gas stocks and water stocks in banks and railroads are of very much less consequence to him then. His heart is free, and looks for the blessed appearing of his Lord, who, at His coming, will take him into His blessed kingdom." - D. L. Moody in "The Second Coming of Christ."
Note 2. - Christ's second coming is referred to 380 times in the New Testament. One verse in every twenty-five, on the average, speaks of it.
Note 3. - "At the last, Jesus Christ shall be manifested in the fullness of His power with great glory. The whole creation of God shall be redeemed from all evil. The eternal purpose of God shall accomplished, His kingdom shall come in its fullness, and He Himself shall be all in all." - J. G. Riddell in "What We Believe."
Note 4. - "Stupendous spectacle! Far in the distant depths of space the prophet sees the approach in the shining hosts. Paling the light of sun, moon, and stars, the glorious procession sweeps earthward, spreading ever wider and wider, till it fills the mighty vault above. In the forefront is Jesus, crowned as King, but with the scars of Calvary still upon Him. Behind and around Him are the armies of heaven, battalion upon battalion, phalanx upon phalanx of glistening forms innumerable, 'ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands,' filling the air with their songs of joy and triumph." - A. S. Maxwell in "This Mighty Hour."
Note 5. - "Scripture uniformly enjoins us to look with expectation to the advent of Christ, and delays the crown of glory till that period." - Calvin in "Institutes," Vol. 2, book 3, chap. 25.
