    Daniel 7:18, 22, and 27: But the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever. Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

    1 Corinthians 15:20, 23, 49: But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept. But every man in his own order; Christ the first fruits; afterwards they that are Christ’s at his coming.

    And I believe, also, that the righteous who are living on the earth when he comes, will be changed from mortal to immortal bodies, and with them who are raised from the dead, will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air, and so be forever with the Lord.HST January 25, 1843, page 145.24


    1 Corinthians 15:51-53: Behold, I show you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.HST January 25, 1843, page 145.25

    Philippians 3:20, 21: For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.HST January 25, 1843, page 145.26

    1 Thessalonians 4:14-17: For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive, and remain unto the coming of the Lord, shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord.HST January 25, 1843, page 145.27

    VII.—I believe when Christ comes the second time, he will come to finish the controversy of Zion, to deliver his children from all bondage, to conquer their last enemy, and to deliver them from the power of the tempter, which is the devil


    Deuteronomy 25:1: If there be a controversy between men, and they come unto judgment, that the judges may judge them; then they shall justify the righteous, and condemn the wicked.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.1

    Isaiah 34:8; 40:2, 5; 41:10 to 12: For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the Lord’s hand double for all her sins. And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded; they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee; they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.2

    Romans 8:21 to 23: Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption, into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

    Hebrews 2:13 to 15: And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their life time subject to bondage.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.4

    1 Corinthians 15:54, 26: So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

    Revelation 20:1 to 6: And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit, and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection; on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God, and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.6

    VIII.—I believe that when Christ comes he will destroy the bodies of the living wicked by fire, as those of the old world were destroyed by water, and shut up their souls in the pit of wo, until their resurrection unto damnation


    Psalm 1:3; 97:3; Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence; a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him. A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.7

    Malachi 4:1: For behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble; and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.10

    Philippians 3:12: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. Matthew 13:41 to 42; 49, 50: The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire; there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. So shall it be at the end of the world; the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire; there shall be walling and gnashing of teeth.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.11

    1 Corinthians 3:13: Every man’s work shall be made manifest; for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work, of what sort it is.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.12

    1 Thessalonians 5:2, 3: For yourselves know perfectly, that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

    2 Thessalonians 1:7 to 9: And to you who are troubled, rest with us; when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire, taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ; who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.14

    1 Peter 1:7: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise, and honor, and glory, at the appearing of Jesus Christ.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.15

    2 Peter 3:7, 10: But the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.17

    Jude 6, 7; 14, 15: And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he I hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness, unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousand of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them, of all their ungodly deeds, which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.18

And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them; and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.19

    IX.—I believe, when the earth is cleansed by fire, that Christ and his saints will then take possession of the earth, and dwell therein forever. Then the kingdom will be given to the saints


    Psalm 37:9 to 11, 22, 28, 29, 34: “For evil doers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off. For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved forever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein forever. Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.”HST January 25, 1843, page 146.22

    Proverbs 2:21 to 22; 10:30: For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.

    Revelation 5:10: And hast made us unto our God kings aed priests: and we shall reign on the earth.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.26

    X.—I believe the time is appointed of God when these things I shall be accomplished


    Acts 17:31: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness, by that man whom he hath ordained: whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.27

    Daniel 8:19; 10:1; 11:35: And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be. In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was true, but the time appointed was long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.31

    Habakkuk 2:3: For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.32

    Acts 17:26: And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitations. See Galatians 4.HST January 25, 1843, page 146.33

    XI.—I believe God has revealed the time


    Isaiah 44:7, 8. 45:20, 21: And who, as I shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them show unto them. Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save. Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, and let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else besides me; a just God and a Savior; there is none besides me.HST January 25, 1843, page 147.1

    1 Thessalonians 5:4: But ye brethren are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.HST January 25, 1843, page 147.4

    XII.—I believe many who are professors and preachers will never believe or know the time until it comes upon them


    Jeremiah 8:7: Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her apointed times; and the turtle, and the crane, and swallow, observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the Lord.HST January 25, 1843, page 147.5

And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape. A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and an howling of the principal of the flock, shall be heard; for the Lord hath spoiled their pasture. And the peaceable habitations are cut down because of the fierce anger of the Lord.HST January 25, 1843, page 147.7

    XIII.—I believe the wise, they who are to shine as the brightness of the firmament, Daniel 12:3, will understand the time

Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil: for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready, went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.HST January 25, 1843, page 147.10

    1 Peter 1:9 to 13: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things which are now reported unto you, by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

    XIV.—I believe the time can be known by all who desire to understand and to be ready for his coming. And I am fully convinced that some time between March 21st, 1843, and March 21st, 1844, according to the Jewish mode of computation of time, Christ will come, and bring all his saints with him; and that then he will reward every man as his work shall be


    Matthew 16:27: For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father, with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.HST January 25, 1843, page 147.13

    Revelation 22:12: And behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with mo, to give every man according as his work shall be.HST January 25, 1843, page 147.14

    1. I prove it by the time given by Moses, in the 26th chapter of Leviticus, being seven times that the people of God are to be in bondage to the kingdoms of this world; or in Babylon, literal and mystical, which seven times cannot be understood less than seven times 360 revolutions of the earth in its orbit, making 2520 years. I believe this began according to Jeremiah 15:4, “And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh, the son of Hezekiah, king of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem,” and Isaiah 7:8, “For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Resin: and within three score and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people,” when Manasseh was carried captive to Babylon, and Israel was no more a nation. See chronology, 2 Chronicles 33:9, “So Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen, whom the Lord had destroyed before the children of Israel,” the 677th year B. C. Then take 677 out of 2520, leaves A. D, 1843, when the punishment of the people of God will end. [See Miller’s Lectures, page 251.]HST January 25, 1843, page 147.15

    2. It is proved typically by the year of release. See Deuteronomy 15:1, 2; “At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release; and this is the manner of the release; every creditor that lendeth aught unto his neighbor shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbor or of his brother, because it is called the Lord’s release.” Also Jeremiah 34:14; “At. the end of seven years let ye go every man his brother a Hebrew, which hath been sold unto thee; and when he hath served thee six years, thou shalt let him go free from thee; but your fathers harkened not unto me, neither inclined their ear.” We are, by this type, taught that the people of God will be delivered from their servitude and bondage, when they have served their 7 prophetic years. 7 times 360 years is 12520. Beginning with the captivity of Israel and the king of Judah, Manasseh, 677 B.C. must end in A. D. 1843, When the children of God will be released from all bondage and slavery. [See Second Advent Lib. No. 14.]HST January 25, 1843, page 147.16

    3. It is also proved by the seven years war of Zion with her enemies, given to us in Ezekiel 39:9, 10.—“And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields arid bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: so that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire; and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord God.” The children of God will be contending with their enemies, spoiling those that spoiled them, and robbing those that have robbed them, 7 years, prophetic, which is 2520 common years. Beginning as before, when Babylon began to spoil and rob them, and when they by the fire of the truth began to burn up the weapons of their enemies, in this moral warfare; this will end in 1843. [See Miller’s Life and Views, p. 69.]HST January 25, 1843, page 147.17

    4. It is proved, also, by the sign of the Sabbath. Exodus 31:13-17.—“Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the Sabbath there fore: for it is holy unto you. Every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut of from among his people. Six days may work be done, but in the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord: whosoever doeth any work in the Sabbath-day he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel forever: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.” Hebrews 4:4, 9-11.—“For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise: And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.” “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is enteretd into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.”HST January 25, 1843, page 147.18

    As God was six days creating the old heavens and earth, and rested on the seventh. So it is a sign that Christ will also labor six days in creating the new heavens and earth, and rest on the seventh. How long is a day with the Lord? Peter tells us in his 2 Epistle 3:8.—“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” If, then, a thousand years is a day with the Lord, how long has Christ been to work creating the new? I answer, if we will allow the Bible to make us a chronology, we shall find this year, 1843, the 6000 years from Adam’s fall will be finished. Then the anti-typical Sabbath of a 1000 years will commence. Revelation 20:6.—“Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.” [See Life and Views, p. 157.HST January 25, 1843, page 147.19

    5. Again, we can prove it by the typical jubilee. Leviticus 25:8-13.—“And thou shalt number seven Sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound, on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land, unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you, ye shall not sow, neither reap that which “groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. For it is the jubilee; it shall be holy unto you, ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. In the year of this jubilee ye shall return every man unto his possession.” Now, if we can show any rule whereby we can find the antitype, we can tell when the people of God will come into the inheritance of the purchased possession, and the redemption of their bodies, and the trump of jubilee will proclaim liberty a glorious one through all the land. In order to do this we must take notice of the order of the Sabbaths. “Seven Sabbaths shall be complete.” There is seven kind of Sabbaths, which all have seven for a given number.HST January 25, 1843, page 148.1

    The Jews kept but six Sabbaths, if they had kept the seventh they would have been made perfect without us; but they broke the seventh, “Therefore, there remains a keeping of the Sabbath to the people of God.” The Jewish Sabbaths were:—HST January 25, 1843, page 148.2

    7. The 7 times 7 Jubilees and 50th Jubilee will bring us to a complete or perfect Ssbbath. The great Jubilee of Jubilees. Thus 7 times 7, 50 years is 49 times 50=2450 years.HST January 25, 1843, page 148.9

    It is very evident no year of release or Jubilee was ever kept after the reign of Josiah, the last king of Jerusalem that obeyed the commandments of the Lord, or kept his statutes This kings reign ended B. C. 607. See 2 Kings 23rd chapter. 2 Chronicles 35 and 36 chapters, and Jeremiah 22nd chapter. After which the Jews never kept, neither could they keep, a year of release, or Jubilee; for neither their kings, their nobles, their people, or their lands could have been redeemed after this. Jeremiah 44:20-23. Here ended the Jewish Jubilees, when they had not kept more than 12 Jubilees, lacking 23 of coming to the great Jubilees.HST January 25, 1843, page 148.10

    And now the land was to lay desolate, while the people of God were in their enemies land. Leviticus 26:34. How long is a Jubilee of Jubilees? Ans. 49 times 50 years,=2450 years. When did these years begin? Ans. When the Jews ceased the keeping of the Sabbaths and Jubilees, at the close of Josiah’s reign, B. C. 607. Take 607 from 2450, it leaves A. D. 1843. When the Jubilee of Jubilees will come.HST January 25, 1843, page 148.11

    6. I prove it by Hosea 6:1-3.—“Come I and let us return unto the Lord; for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord; his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.” This prophecy is the two days of the Roman Kingdom, in its Emperial, Kingly and Papal form, with its great iron teeth, tearing and persecuting the people of God; the third day is the same as Revelation 20:6.—“Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.” When the people of God will live in his sight, “live and reign with him a thousand years. If then the third day is a thousand years then the two days is of equal length. When did the two days begin? Ans. When the Jews made a league with the Romans. See Hosea 5:13.—“When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet could he not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.” Daniel 11:23.—“And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully; for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people,” 1 Macabees 8, 9 chapt. This league was confirmed and ratified, and the Grecian kingdom ceased to rule over God’s people B. C. 158 years. Then add 158 to 1842 and we have 2000 years, or two days; as Peter says. 2 Peter 3:8.—“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” And 1843 is the first year in the 3rd thousand years, or 3rd day of the Lord. The world has stood since the hill of man 2000 years, under the Patriarchs; 2000 years under the Assyrian, Babylonian, Medo-Persian, and Grecian. And 2000 years under Rome Pagan, Papal and Kingly. [See Sec. Adv. Lib. p. 45.HST January 25, 1843, page 148.12

    7. I can prove it by the length of the vision which Daniel had, 8:1-14. Of the ram, he goat, and little horn which Daniel was informed was 2300 days long. Daniel 8:13, 14.—“Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot. And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.” And from which the 70 weeks were cut off, and fulfilled, the year of Christ’s death, Daniel 9:20-27. Then 70 weeks of years being cut off from 2300 days makes these days years; and 490 years being fulfilled in A. D. 33, leaves 1810 years to the fulfilment of the vision, which added to 33 makes 1843, when the sanctuary will be cleansed, and the people of God justified.HST January 25, 1843, page 148.13

    8. It can be proved by Daniel 12:6, 7. “And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, how long shall it be to the end of these wonders? And I heard the man clothed in linen which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and a half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.” The question is asked, How long to the end of these wonders? These wonlders are to the resurrection. See 2nd and 3rd verses, “And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise, shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness, as the stars for ever and ever.” The answer is given by the angel who informs Daniel it shall be for a time, times and a half, when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all will be finished. Ezekiel 13:10-15, “Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; This burden concerneth the prince in Jerusalem, and all the house of Israel that are among them. Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove and go into captivity. And the prince that is among them shall bear upon his shoulders in the twilight, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to carry out thereby: he shall cover his face, that he see not the ground with his eyes. My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in my snare: and I will bring him to Babylon to the land of the Chaldeans, yet shall he not see it, though he shall die there. And I will scatter toward every wind all that are about him to help him, and all his bands; and I will draw out the sword after them. And they shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.” Jeremiah 15:4, “And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem.” This scattering begun, when Israel was scattered by Esarhaddon, and when the king of Judah, Manasseh, was carried to Babylon, B. C. 677. Thus they continued to be a people scattered, by the kings of the earth, untill they fled into the wilderness in A. D. 538, which makes 1215 years. There they remained in the wilderness a time times and an half—Which began A. D. 538, and continued until A. D. 1798. The kings of the earth then had power, and the time, times and a half, of the scattering of the holy people is filled up by 45 years, being the remainder of the 1215, making in all 1260 years, under the nations or kings, and ending in the year 1843. Which is the fulness of times. Ephesians 1:9, 10, “Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure, which he hath purposed in himself:” that in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:” When the people of God, both among Jews and Gentiles, will no more be scattered, but gathered in one body in Christ. [Sec. Ad. Lib. No. 6, page 45.]HST January 25, 1843, page 148.14

    9. It can also be proved by Daniel 12:11-13, “And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and fire and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.”HST January 25, 1843, page 148.15

    The number 1335 days, from the taking away of Rome Pagan, A. D. 508, to set up Rome Papal, and the reign of Papacy, is 1290 days, which was exactly fulfilled in 1290 years, being fulfilled in 1798. This proves the 1335 days to be years, and that Daniel will stand in his lot in A. D. 1843. For proof texts, see Daniel 11:31, “And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.” 2 Thessalonians 2:6-8, “And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:” Job 19:25, “For I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:” [Miller’e Lectures page 100.]HST January 25, 1843, page 148.16

    10. It can also be proved by the words of Christ, Luke 13:32, “And he said unto them, Go ye and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to-day and to-morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.” These two days in which Christ casts out devils and does cures, is the same as Hosea’s two days, at the end of which, the devil will be chained, and cast out of the earth into the pit, and shut up. This will take 2000 years, of the Roman power. Revelation 12:9, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” And then the people of God will be perfected, Revelation 20:9, “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”HST January 25, 1843, page 149.1

    This time began with the “great dragon,” Revelation 12:3, 4, “And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.”HST January 25, 1843, page 149.2

    This government will draw after him one third part of the time, which wicked men have power in the earth, viz. 6000, and the 7000, the year Christ will take possession and reign with his saints, in perfect bliss.HST January 25, 1843, page 149.3

    This dragon power began its power over the saints when the league was made with him B. C. 158—and will end in 1842. Then the third day will begin 1843 [See. Ad. Lib. No. 3, page 61]HST January 25, 1843, page 149.4

    11. The trumpets are also a revelation of time. See Revelation 9:5, “And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.” These 5 months began when the Turks made incursions into the Greek territories, according to Gibbon, in the year 1299, on the 27th day of July. 5 months is 150 years, 5-|-30=150. This trumpet ended 1443. And the sixth trumpet began to sound and was to sound 391 years and 15 days, as in Revelation 9:15, “And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.” And ended 1840, on the 11th of August. Then the seventh trumpet begins, and ends with the fulness of times, Revelation 10:5, 7. “And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth, lifted up his hand to heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” And synchronizes with Daniel 12:7. See section 7, where it is shown to end in the year 1843. [Miller’s Lectures, page 190.]HST January 25, 1843, page 149.5

    12. It can be proved by the two witnesses being clothed in sackcloth 1260 years. See Revelation 11:3, “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.” This time began with Papacy, 538, and ended in 1798, during which time the Bible was suppressed from the laity, in all the countries where papacy had power, until the laws of the papal hierachy were abolished and free toleration was granted to the papal states in 1798. Then the remainder harmonizes with the trumpets, see Revelation 11:14, 15, “The second wo is past; and behold, the third wo cometh quickly. And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.HST January 25, 1843, page 149.6

    And terminates with A. D. 1843.HST January 25, 1843, page 149.7

    13. It can be proved by Revelation 12:6, 14, “And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.” It is evident that the church is not now in the wilderness, for if so, then she must have been in the apostles days, for she enjoys more liberty now among the nations, than in any previous time since the gospel was preached; and it is very evident, for ages past, the true church has been an outlaw among the kingdoms, which arose out of the Roman Empire. The church was driven into the wilderness where they were given into the power of the Pope, Daniel 7:25, “And he shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time,” in the year A. D. 538. And was in the wilderness 1260 years, until 1798, when free toleration was granted in the kingdoms in the Papal territory. This also harmonizes with the witnesses, and the trumpets, compare Revelation 11:15, “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying. The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever,” with Revelation 3 12:10, “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down which accused them before our God day and night,“HST January 25, 1843, page 149.8

    14. It is proved by Revelation 13:5, “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” This time began at the same time as the preceding, when power was given to the Pope by Justinian, A. D. 538, and lasted until the Pope was carried into captivity, and his power abolished, in the year 1798. See 10th verse “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword, must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.” This beast is the same as the little horn in Daniel 7th, and synchronizes with Daniel’s “abomination that maketh desolate,” or “that astonisheth,” (see Marginal reading.) Compare Daniel 11:31, and 12:11, with Revelation 13:3-8, and of course his power is abolished with the end of his “setting up,” and the 1290 years. Then Daniel 12:12, “Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days,” carries us to the year 1843.HST January 25, 1843, page 149.9

    15. It can be proved by the numbers in Revelation 13:18, “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six,” connected with Daniel 12:12, as before quoted. This text shows the number of years that Rome would exist under the blasphemous head of Paganism, after it was connected with the people of God by league, beginning B. C. 158, add 666 years, will bring us to A. D. 508, when the daily was taken away. Then add Daniel 12:12, the 1335 to 508, makes the year 1843. When the beast and his image will be tormented in the presence of the holy angels, and the Lamb. See Revelation 14:9-12. “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”—[Miller’s Lectures, page 76.]HST January 25, 1843, page 149.10

    These several ways of prophetic chronology, proves the end in 1843. Now what is there in all this reckoning of time, that should entitle one to such vile abuse, and slander, as I have received from the pulpit and press, from editors and priests, from the infidel, and blasphemer, from the drunkard and gambler? These have all made friends with each other; for the sole purpose of vilifying and saying hard things against me; for presenting my honest conviction of these things. If men are satisfied that these things are not true, why are they so violent and denunciatory against me? What can I do? I can neither make it true, nor false. Why do professed ministers show such anger and malice? Why call me a prophet in such sneering terms, from Dr. Brownlee down to John Dowling, A. M. pastor etc. etc. etc.? I have only shown to the world my opinion on those passages, they have done the same, I have shown my faith by my works, they can do likewise if they please. Let every one be fully persuaded in his own mind, and so let them speak.HST January 25, 1843, page 149.11

    But these men, not only show much anger, but misrepresent my words, and views. Is truth of such a texture, as to need lies to support it? If they have no better foundation for their religion, than they have manifested in their debates on this subject, I should think they might be sentimentally opposed to the coming of Christ, and upon the very same principle as the infidel or drunkard would oppose.

    I would advise all to cease their revilings, take this little tract, read, and compare Scripture with Scripture, prophecy with history, and see if there is not a strong probability that I am correct, and if there is even one to ten, that it is so, then it is all important we attend to the interest of our souls and eternity. You ought to spurn from you, those, who say there is no danger, you ought in justice to your own soul, turn a deaf ear to the men who are flattering you with “peace and safety.”HST January 25, 1843, page 150.1

    Who will this day overtake as a thief? Surely not those who are looking for it. 1 Thessalonians 5:4, Hebrews 9:28. Who will be destroyed when it comes? Those who are overtaken as a thief. 1 Thessalonians 5:3. Matthew 24:50. Revelation 16:15. You ask, will all who do not look for him, perish in the day of his coming? I answer, it would seem so, by many texts of Scripture. Yet I am not their judge. God only knows what will become of them. They that were ready went in with him, and the door was shut.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.2

    From H. Gaylord


    Dear Brother Himes:—In this place, on the 17th of last month, brother Calvin French commenced a course of lectures on the second coming of our Lord in 1843. Elders Lane, Harvey and Hermans were in attendance,—our meeting house was crowded during and at the close of the lectures, many expressed their belief in the coming of their Lord during the present year. Brother French confined himself principally to the absorbing subject that induced him to leave his home and family. Brother Lane went on as formerly and taught the people “what they should do to be saved,” that they might be prepared for that coming, through the united efforts of our brethren and the blessing of our God, many have been hopefully converted from the error of their ways, elder Lane has emersed two hundred and fifty since Lord’s day the 18th of last month, and the work is still going on. May the Lord continue to bless his own truth, and may that Gospel that Paul was “not ashamed of,” prove the “power of God unto salvation” to many who shall yet hear, “believe and obey itHST January 25, 1843, page 150.3

    Many people appear determined to strive to have “part in the first resurrection,” believing that “on such the second death hath no power.” I will close by saying that a great many are convinced that our Lord’s personal coming is near at hand, but the effect of that belief has not been such as many had anticipated, the people were calm and solemn, no violent outbreaks, but the utmost order and propriety was observd in all our meetings, and I think much good has been done, there is every appearance of real reformation. Your friend and brother.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.4

    A new Prophet.—The Rev. Mr. Brownlee, D. D., has come out and in his mighty wisdom declares that he is of the opinion that the end will not take place for one hundred and seventy five years to come—and of course we all shall have to swallow his opinion, and not look for the end until that time is past; because he thinks so; while the Bible cautions us to be always ready. He is more dangerous than Miller.—Gos. Pub.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.6




    Dear Brethren:—This year, according to our faith, is the last year that satan will reign in our earth. Jesus Christ will come, and bruise his head. The kingdoms of the earth will be dashed to pieces, which is the same thing. And he whose right it is to reign, will take the kingdom and possess it forever and ever.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.7

    And the God of peace shall tread satan under your feet shortly.” Therefore we have but a little time more to do as our good brother Paul was commanded. Acts 26:18, “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.” Let us then put forth our best energies in this cause, let every one of us try by persuasion, by the help and grace of God, to get one at least of our friends to come to Christ, in this last year of redemption, and if we succeed, what an army of regenerated souls may we not hail in the New heavens and new earth. I pray God, my brethren, that nothing may deter you from this work. Let scoffers scoff, and liars tell lies, we must not suffer ourselves to be drawn from our work. Yes, the glorious work of salvation, will within a few short months, be finished forever. Then I need not exhort you more on this point—you yourselves know the value of this great salvation.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.8

    And another thing it is well for us to remember.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.9

    The world will watch for our halting. They cannot think we believe what we speak, for they count our faith a strange faith, and now beware and not give them any advantage of ground over us. They will perhaps look for the halting and falling away of many. But I hope none who are looking for the glorious appearing, will let their faith waver, keep cool, let patience have its perfect work, that after ye have done the will of God, ye may receive the promises. This year will try our faith, we must be tried, purified and made white, and if there should be any among us, which do not in heart believe, they will go out from us: but I am persuaded there cannot be many, for it is a doctrine so repugnant to the carnal heart, so opposite to the worldly minded, so far from the cold professor, the bigot and hypocrite, that none of them will, or can believe in a doctrine so searching as the immediate appearing of Jesus Christ to judge the world.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.10

    I am therefore persuaded better things of you brethren, although I thus speak. I beseech you my dear brethren, be careful that Satan get no advantage over you, by scattering coals of wild fire among you; for if he cannot drive you into unbelief and doubt, he will then try his wild fire of fanaticism, and speculation, to get us off from the word of God. Be watchful and sober, and hope to the end, for the grace that shall be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.11

    Think not my brethren, that I stand in doubt of your perseverance. I know your faith, your love, and hope to be rooted and grounded on the word of the Almighty, you are not dependant on the wisdom or commandments of men; many if not all of you have examined for yourselves, you have studied and found true, what at first was only reported unto you, you have found the Bible much more precious than you had before conceived. Its doctrine to be congenial with the holy and just character of God. Its precepts to be wise, benevolent and kind.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.12

    Its prophecies to be clear, and lucid, carryring conviction strong of the truth and inspiration of the scriptures, a harmony of manner, and matter from Genesis to Revelation. In one word, you have found a new Bible, and I hope and believe you have read it with new delight; I fear not that you can ever be satisfied with the views of our opponents, the manner of ex-explaining scripture which they adopt is too carnal to satisfy the devoted child of God.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.13

    Then let me advise a continual searching for the truth, both for faith and practice, and wherever we have wandered from the word of God, let us come back to the primitive simplicity of the gospel, once delivered to the saints. Thus we shall be found ready at his coming to give an account of our stewardship, and hear our blessed Master say, “Well done thou good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” Every truth we get from the blessed book prepares us better for his coming and kingdom. Every error prevents us in part from being ready.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.14

    Let us then stand strong in the faith, with our loins girt about with truth, and our lamps trimmed and burning, and waiting for our Lord, ready to enter the promised land, the true inheritance of the saints. This year, the fulness of time, will come, the shout of victory will be heard in heaven, the triumphant return of our great Captain may be expected. The new song will commence before the throne. Eternity begin its revolution, and time shall be no more. This year, Oh blessed year! The captives will be released, the prison doors will be opened, death will have no more dominion over us, and life, eternal life be our everlasting reward.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.15

    This year, a glorious year!! The trump of Jubilee will be blown, the exiled children will return, the Pilgrims reach their home, from earth and heaven the scattered remnant come, and meet in middle air, the fathers before the flood, Noah and his sons, Abraham and his, the Jew and Gentile, all who have died in faith, of every nation, kindred tongue and people, will meet to part no more. This year, the long looked for year of years the best, it is come.—I shall hope to meet you all, through faith in God, and the blood of the Lamb.—Until then, farewell. May God bless you, and sustain you in the faith.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.16

    May you be patient in all tribulation and endure unto the end—HST January 25, 1843, page 150.17

    May you this year be crowned with immortality and glory.HST January 25, 1843, page 150.18

    Letter from Bro. C. French


    Dear Brother Himes:—I closed my lectures in Lewisburg, Pa. on Sabbath, 8th inst. many of the brethren became conffrmed in their faith that the blessed Lord will come this year. An interest was awakened to the subject, sufficient to call forth the public opposition of those who say, in their hearts, “My Lord delayeth his coming.” Fifty-six were baptized, on a profession of their faith, by Br. Sutton, who has publicly professed his faith that Christ will come in a few weeks; he will proclaim it wherever he labors. I distributed all the books I had with me, and left eight or ten who will publicly do what they can to proclaim the Midnight Cry in that part of Pa.—Since I left Plymouth, I have learnt that the good work is spreading through the Wyoming Valley, and over the mountains, and many are praising God that they ever heard the “Midnight Cry.”HST January 25, 1843, page 151.1

    In Pottsville I was solicited to give a lecture, they never having heard one on the subject.—I consented to stop. The house occupied by the Baptists (owned by the Universalists) was obtained, at 12 o’clock, notices were posted in the streets, of a lecture at 2; a few minutes before 2 the sexton informed me that the owners of the house had taken the key from his son, and refused to have their house opened, for me. Application was then made for the Methodist house, which was obtained. I went, expecting to occupy it, but the sexton refused to open it without a written order. By this time the streets had become crowded with all classes of people, many of them catholics and minors, who were all most desperate to hear on the subject. What to do I knew not, but to remember the declaration, “I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” I was taken to the town hall, into which the crowd rushed. I addressed them for an hour and a half; they listened with quiet attention.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.2

    On arriving at Philadelphia I was glad to hear the voice of Br. Litch, at the corner of Thirteenth and Race streets. Br. L. has lectured in various parts of the city, in such places as can be obtained. An interest is awakened to hear on the subject among the “common people.”HST January 25, 1843, page 151.3

    I arrived at New-York city on Saturday. That city is being shaken to its centre. Prof. Whiting, who was invited by his brethren to examine the subject, to refute it, became convinced of its truth, and is now giving lectures, showing that Daniel’s vision ends this year. He has lectured twice in the Baptist Tabernacle—on Monday eve. he lectured at “Niblo’s Garden.”HST January 25, 1843, page 151.4

    I arrived in this city last eve., and gave a lecture, and am to commence a course this P. M. to continue until Sabbath eve. More hereafter.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.5

    Yours, in hope of the glorlous
    appearing in a few weeks,

    From J. Cushing


    Dear Brother Himes:—In this town and in the towns adjoining, there begins to be a waking up on the part of the people in regard to this soul-thrilling subject of the second advent. The people in this vicinity, professors, and non-professors, have been, until within a few weeks, entirely silent on the subject, with the exception of here and there one, who has been “looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat.”HST January 25, 1843, page 151.6

    It has been about two years since the Midnight cry was first sounded here, and because sentence against an evil work was not executed speedily, they have seemed to think it never would be; therefore the hearts of many of them, have been fully set in them to do evil; but they begin to think now, and so much the more as they see the day approaching. Almost every one has something to say about “Millerism.” Some are in the full faith of ‘43, and many others believe it near at hand. There are, however, a great many that call it ail delusion, humbug, fanaticism, and speculation. They are very much in want of light on this subject. the most of the preachers here are entirely silent. They are in ignorance in regard to this matter, and seem to be willing to remain so. Others scout at it, and the wicked, take such, as their leaders in this ignoble business, and they rejoice and triumph; but their career is a short one. And what will they do in the end thereof. If an able lecturer should come this way, he would get a candid hearing. We hope Providence may favor us in this respect.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.7

    Editorial Correspondence


    Dear Brother Bliss:—On my way to this city, I visited Lansinburgh, N. Y. and gave three lectures in the Baptist church. I found a deep interest existing on the subject of the advent this year, occasioned by brother Miller’s lectures at Waterford, just across the river. The whole region seems to be stirred up. I had crowded and very attentive audiences, and can but hope that good was done. The people were very anxious for a full course of lectures,HST January 25, 1843, page 151.9

    Bro. Miller’s labors at Waterford, were attended with an unusual blessing. The whole town seemed to be moved. Not only the common people, who always hear us gladly, but the professional men, and those who exert much influence in the place, upon hearing candidly the lectures, were constrained to admit the strength and power of the arguments for the coming of Christ this year. At the close of his last lecture on the 8th inst. one hundred and twenty voluntarily rose for prayers. Some of these were converted. Among these, there were over sixty men, the leading men in town. Quite a number of Lawyers.—And although our opponents are always harping about making infidels, quite a number of those who came forward had been infidels, and now for the first time confessed their faith in the Bible; and that Mr. Miller had proved the Bible true—they could no longer disbelieve.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.10

    Several ministers were convicted, and strong hopes are entertained of their conversion to the truth of the advent nigh.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.11

    On the 9th inst. we took leave of our faithful friend, J. G. McMurray and his kind family at Lansingburgh, for this city. We arrived the same day in safety, and commenced our meetings according to appointment. A wide and effectual door is opened in this city, and indeed through all this region. We have many calls to give lectures in the neighboring towns.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.12

    Brother Miller is lecturing to crowded houses, afternoon and evening, in the second Presbyterian church. The prospect now for doing good is cheering. The clergy help us as usual, by their lame opposition. But we hope they may be led to a candid examination of this solemn question, and be in readiness with their flocks when the “chief Shepherd shal appear.” More anon. J. V. Himes.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.13

    Letter from Joseph Marsh


    Messrs. Editors:—I have of late attended to the study of Daniel’s vision, and although I am not prepared to adopt all your views, yet I must say that the weight of evidence in favor of the near approach of Christ’s glorious kingdom, is very great.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.15

    The doctrine is too solemn to be treated with levity; and the generality of those who believe it, are known too well by the community as good men (unless I am deceived) to be despised.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.16

    But the object of this line, is to ask you, if it is proper to give your views in the “Signs of the Times” on Isaiah 65:17-25.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.17

    Several friends who have espoused your views in this town, are stumbled by the above passage, and others use it as a strong argument against them. By complying with the above, you will confer a favor on yours in Christ.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.18

    Sandwich, Jan. 7th 1843.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.19

    Remarks. We give Isaiah 65th a literal interpretation. There is nothing in connection with this portion of Scripture, which intimates that it is to be otherwise understood, if it be understood figuratively, the figure is as good for our cause as for our opponents. If it is to be understood literally, it can only be fulfilled in a new heaven and new earth, as it commences with an assertion that God will create such. Therefore with either interpretation it cannot militate against the truth of the Second Advent doctrine.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.20

    If it is not to be taken literally, there is no rule which will decide what is to be understood by it. If we err at all, we prefer to be found erring in taking God at his word, than in rejecting that word and resting upon our own interpretation of it.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.21

    The only passage in this portion of Scripture that seems to conflict with a literal interpretation, is the 20th verse. “There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die a hundred years old: but the sinner being a hundred years old shall be accursed.” This, some imagine, implies that in the state here described, there will be death, but a strictly literal interpretation will remove that objection.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.22

    It is said “There will be no more there an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days.” If there will be no more thence an infant of days, it will follow that there will be no more births, and if there are no births, there can be no deaths. What then is meant by “the child shall die an hundred years old, but the sinner being an hundred years old, shall be accursed?” We know that the only entrance to that world, is through the gate of death and the resurrection from the grave, or the last change of the living, which will be equivalent to it. When the child shall die must, therefore, have reference to his departure from this world preparatory to his entrance there, where he will not be an infant of days, but of mature mind as if he were an hundred years old. The sinner, however, when he enters the gate of death, although an hundred years old, will be accursed, and will never enter that world. This view is farther strengthened by the context; for we are commanded to rejoice forever” in that which God creates, which we could not do if death enters there. It is said “The voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her nor the voice of crying.” It must therefore be exempt from pain and suffering, death and loss of friends. And it also said that “They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord.” The context therefore shows that the death spoken of, must refer to our exit from this world on the passage to the next.HST January 25, 1843, page 151.23

    This view is confirmed by parallel portions of Scripture. The new earth of St. Peter, 3:13. is melted with fervent heat, and Paul says “We according to his promise look for new heavens and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness.” We know of no promise of a new earth to which Peter could refer, but the promise in this 65th of Isaiah. The new earth of John, Revelation 21. is the same as that of Peter, and John assures us that there will be “no more death.” Peter also speaks of the “new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness,” as though the holy and happy state predicted in the Bible could never be realized in this earth.HST January 25, 1843, page 152.1

    Whether the inhabitants of the new earth will actually build houses and inhabit them, or plant vineyards and eat the fruit of them; or whether that prediction only implies, that they will no more labor in vain, or bring forth for trouble, and that then they will not build for another to inhabit, and plant for another to eat, we do not attempt to say, but as we said before it can only be literally fulfilled in the new earth, and if these are figures they do not militate against our belief. The remark is also applicable to the wolf and lamb feeding and the lion eating straw like the bullock. If animals were not out of place in Eden, we know not that they will be in the new earth. If God sees fit to place them there, we shall cheerfully acquiesce, and believe that he will act wisely in all that he does.HST January 25, 1843, page 152.2

    “Present Religious Appearances.”—This is the caption of an article in the last Christian Herald, by Elder Shaw. He informs us, that there is “an increase of Union among the evangelical denominations of the 19th century.” We ask in what? Is not every sect in the land divided among themseves. What sympathy have Baptists with Congregationists—Or what union is there between the Christian Connexion, and the reputed Orthodox sects. Will they own brother S. or his brethren, as evangelical? Not one, as a class!HST January 25, 1843, page 152.16

    Again he says “they have given up controversy about small matters, etc.” We think the religious papers show the reverse. What but party quarrels, and differencesin doctrine, discipline and church government occupies the religious press? And all these are a “pressage of a” temporal “Millenium”! What infatuation!HST January 25, 1843, page 152.17

    To Correspondents


    The reasoning of J.

    E. G. A. asks, “is not the meaning of the words “to seal up,” in Daniel 9:24, to complete rather than make sure?” We think not. To complete is to finish, and the vision could not be finished till the end of the 2300 days.HST January 25, 1843, page 152.22

    We cannot understand with brother A. Judd, that Daniel 12:2, is to immediately precede the coming of Christ, but it plainly follows the standing up of Michael, (Christ) Daniel 12:1-3, “And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise, shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness, as the stars forever and ever.” This is also plainly a resurrection of the body, and consequently such texts as “Now it is high time to awake out of sleep,” etc. etc. are not parallel passages.HST January 25, 1843, page 152.26
