    Hundreds Proclaiming the Message

    To meet the growing interest, large tents were used, and grove meetings were held in the summer season. Some of the largest church buildings and public halls were used in the winter, and all were packed to their utmost capacity with interested listeners. Instead of Elder Miller now standing, as he had previous to 1840, “almost alone” in declaring the message, about three hundred joined him in publicly proclaiming the termination of the twenty-three-hundred-day period, and in giving the cry, “There shall be time no longer,” and, “The hour of his judgment is come.” Thus we see how, when the Lord’s time came for the message to make its world-wide advancement, his word was fulfilled, and the millions were moved with a desire to hear the call.GSAM 133.1

    What was true of the movement in America was true in other countries. From the year 1840, instead of a few individuals scattering their publications, scores sprang, as it were, to the front to proclaim the cry. In England there were seven hundred ministers of the Church of England alone proclaiming the message, to say nought of the scores of others engaged in the same work. In more than a score of the different leading nations of the earth a message was going with that zeal which led the looker-on to say, “This people are terribly in earnest.”GSAM 133.2
