MUSIC NOTES: As we gather for worship we hear three organ pieces played by Jeanna Reuer, a first-year KCMA nursing student from Snohomish, WA. Jeanna began organ lessons last fall. (Hymn No. 320) was written in 1961 by Jack Copley Winslow, an English clergyman and missionary to India. It was first published in 1977 in the and is sung to the Irish tune, known best to us with the text, is from Felix Mendelssohn's oratorio, “St. Paul.” It speaks of how we are a blessing to the world when we represent the gospel of peace. February 3rd would have been Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy’s 200th birthday. He was a German composer who lived in Leipzig, Germany and is best known for discovering and reintroducing the music of Johann Sebastian Bach that had been virtually lost and forgotten for over 100 years. is music for violin by J.S. Bach played by Stephanie Kime. Stephanie grew up in this church, graduated from Spring Valley Academy and now teaches in Loma Linda, Ca. (Hymn 329) is one of Fanny Crosby’s hymns. Each stanza begins with the words, “Take the world.” The phrase is similar to the apostle Paul’s renunciation found in Galatians 6:14: is one of the “Eighteen Choral Preludes” which J.S. Bach had printed during his lifetime. The melody was adapted by Martin Luther from the secular tune, “Wach Auf, Wach Auf”. Grant Wareham, is the organist.

“Are the Amish More Adventist Than We Are?” Fourth message in series:

I. The Second Angel’s Message of Hope (Revelation 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.”

II. The Second Angel’s Message: What? (Genesis 11:4) Come, let us build ourselves a . . . tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may (Revelation 17:5) This title was written on her forehead: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (Daniel 4:30) “Is not this the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of my majesty?

III. The Second Angel’s Message: So what? (Revelation 18:1-4) After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a mighty voice he shouted: “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.” Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues”.

IV. The Second Angel and the Clash of Kingdoms A. The Kingdom of Babylon B. The Kingdom of God
