How is the true God distinguished from all false gods?
"Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth. . . . He [the true God hath made the earth by His power, He hath established the world by His wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by His discretion." Jeremiah 10:11, 12.
For what reason is worship justly due to God?
"For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods... . The sea is His, and He made it: and His hands formed the dry land. 0 come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker." Psalms 95:3-6.
Why do the inhabitants of heaven worship God?
"The four and twenty elders fall down before Him, . . . saying, Thou art worthy, 0 Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created." Revelation 4:10, 11.
What memorial of His creative power did God establish?
"Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. . . . For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it." Exodus 20:8-11.
What place has the Sabbath in the work of salvation?
"Moreover also I gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between Me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them." Ezekiel 20:12.
THE STANDARD FOR ALL
How many are concerned in the judgment?
"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad." 2 Corinthians 5:10.
What will be the standard in the judgment?
"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. For He that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty." James 2:10-12.
In view of the judgment, what exhortation is given?
"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil." Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14.
NOTE.-A comparison of Revelation 14:7 with Ecclesiastes 12:13, suggests that the way to give glory to God is to keep His commandments, and that in giving the judgment-hour message, the duty of keeping the commandments would be emphasized. This is plainly shown in the description given of the people who are gathered out of every nation, kindred, tongue, and people as the result of the preaching of this message, in connection with the other messages which immediately follow and accompany it. Of this people it is said, "Here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." Revelation 14:12.
