    Attention Called to the Autumn of 1844

    “As early as May, 1843, Brother Miller had called our attention to the seventh month of the Jewish sacred year, as the time of the observance of those types which point to the second advent; and the last autumn we looked to that point of time with much interest. After it had passed away, Brother S. S. Snow fully embraced the opinion that, according to the types, the advent of the Lord, when it does occur, must occur on the tenth day of the seventh month; but he was not positive as to the year. He afterward saw that the prophetic periods do not actually expire until the present year, 1844; he then planted himself on the ground that about the 22nd of October—the tenth day of the seventh month of this present year—we should witness the advent of the Lord of glory. This he preached in New York, Philadelphia, and other places during the past spring and summer; and while many embraced his views, yet no particular manifestation of its effects was seen until about July.GSAM 157.3
