Dear Church Family,
Note these clarifying words as they pertain to the message of the 2nd Angel:
The message of the fall of Babylon, as given by the second angel, is repeated, with the additional mention of the corruptions which have been entering the churches since 1844. The work of this angel comes in at the right time to join in the last great work of the third angel’s message as it swells to a loud cry. SR 399
Note that the gospel message while centered upon Christ & His Righteousness, includes a message of warning as well as an invitation to come out.
