    THE DAY AND THE HOUR

    On the point of setting the day and the hour,-I wish here to enter my most solemn disclaimer against setting any definite time for the second advent of the Savior:—whether it be February, March, April, May, or June, or any other month in the year; I have no judgment on that point. There are several points in history and chronology, the anniversary of any one of which, may be the time; which it will be, I am utterly unable to decide. I believe it will come in 1843, but for “the day and hour” I believe we must watch. If others think they have discovered “the day or hour,” and preach it, let the responsibility be on them. I enter the same disclaimer also in behalf of my esteemed brethren and fellow-laborers, Miller, Himes, Fitch and Hale. I do it because I know their sentiments to be the same as above expressed; there are others, also, of the same opinion. That it will come the third or twenty-third of April, we have not either of us affirmed. We have stated the fact that Ferguson, in his astronomical calculation, has given us, viz., that Christ was crucified on the third of April. We have a right to that fact, and so has the world, and they must make what use of it they think proper. But whether the seventy weeks ended precisely with the death of Christ, or at some other point, is what I am unable to determine. That it ended not many months from that, is clear and satisfactory. “What,” said the Savior, “I say unto you, I say unto all, WATCH.”PREX2 226.2
