This chart presents the Three Angels messages from the Book of Revelation chapter 14, each  "angel" representing a new message, a total of SIX prophetic messages (represented by each of the six angels) since 1844.  Three messages to the Judgment for the Dead book work in Heaven (Daniel 7:10), and three messages to the Judgment for the Living event beginning in 1955 (Revelation 14:15).   The chart presents the Bible typology of the Divine judgment message in Jesus' day, on the left side of the chart, and the Judgment message (to the living) in our day in anti-typology, on the right side of the chart.   It  is taught in Adventism that there is a sequence of the TWO judgment events, one called "The Judgment for the Dead" section (center of chart) and the other called "The Judgment for the Living", both events revealed in a sequence of messages since 1831, beginning with William Miller, then Ellen White for the Judgement for the Dead section.  The Judgment for the Living section begins in 1930, with a new message that prepares the way for the Judgment for the Living to open, just as it was in William Miller's prepared the way for the message of the Third Angel given through Ellen White, one messenger preparing the way for the other and Miller preparing the way for the actual judgment for the Dead saints, from ages past,  beginning October 22, 1844.   The first Three Angels  Messages, from 1831 to 1844, were the /FIRST PHASE of the Three Angels Messages.  The REPEAT phase, or SECOND PHASE, began in 1930 under the message given through Victor Houteff to the Seventh-Day Adventist Church.  The "repeat" phase was shown to Ellen White, wherein several statements she made reveals more light, new light messages, after her time.  She stated, "I was AGAiN brought down through these messages" (EW 259) and other statements that she made that the messages would be given "with distinct utterances" in the messages to follow after her time. 

This topic was the main theme in the writings of Ellen White in her book The Great Controversy.  On page 490 of that book, she states:

"We are not saved in groups. The purity and devotion of one will not offset the want of these qualities in another. Though all nations are to pass in judgment before God, yet He will examine the case of each individual with as close and searching scrutiny as if there were not another being upon the earth. Everyone must be tested and found without spot or wrinkle or any such thing. { GC 489.3} 

"Solemn are the scenes connected with the closing work of the atonement. Momentous are the interests involved therein. The judgment is now passing in the sanctuary above. For many years this work has been in progress. Soon—none know how soon—it will pass to the cases of the living. In the awful presence of Godour lives are to come up in review. At this time above all others it behooves every soul to heed the Saviour’s admonition: “Watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.” Mark 13:33. “If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.” Revelation 3:3. { GC 490.1}
"When the work of the investigative judgment closes, the destiny of all will have been decided for life or death. Probation is ended a short time before the appearing of the Lord in the clouds of heaven. Christ in the Revelation, looking forward to that time, declares: “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” Revelation 22:11, 12. { GC 490.2} 

"The righteous and the wicked will still be living upon the earth in their mortal state—men will be planting and building, eating and drinking, all unconscious that the final, irrevocable decision has been pronounced in the sanctuary above. Before the Flood, after Noah entered the ark, God shut him in and shut the ungodly out; but for seven days the people, knowing not that their doom was fixed, continued their careless, pleasure-loving life and mocked the warnings of impending judgment. “So,” says the Saviour, “shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:39. Silently, unnoticed as the midnight thief, will come the decisive hour which marks the fixing of every man’s destiny, the final withdrawal of mercy’s offer to guilty men. { GC 491.1}
“Watch ye therefore: ... lest coming suddenly He find you sleeping.” Mark 13:35, 36. Perilous is the condition of those who, growing weary of their watch, turn to the attractions of the world. While the man of business is absorbed in the pursuit of gain, while the pleasure lover is seeking indulgence, while the daughter of fashion is arranging her adornments—it may be in that hour the Judge of all the earth will pronounce the sentence: “Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.” Daniel 5:27. { GC 491.2}
