    TIME OF THE JUDGMENT

    The next two chapters of Daniel fix the time when this judgment hour was to open in heaven. It was to come at the end of the 2300 years of Daniel 8:14, and this prophetic period was to begin with “the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem.” Daniel 9:24, 25. This was the decree of Artaxerxes, on record in Ezra 7, issued 457 B. C. Down the long centuries that measuring line of prophecy ran, its end touching the year 1844. Then was the cleansing of the sanctuary, the judgment hour, to open in heaven above, according to Daniel’s prophecy. Then, according to John’s prophecy of Revelation 14, the people of the prophecy, keeping the commandments of God, were to appear on earth, to carry to all nations the announcement: “The hour of His judgment is come.”HEVI 80.10

    And so it all came to pass. The year 1844 witnessed the rise of this definite advent movement. In that very year, marked on the record in the days of ancient Babylon, our pioneers in New England appeared-Adventists, laying hold of the commandments of God. This movement of the prophecy began. The prophecy pictures it as distinctively a world movement. The organ of one of the great churches of America has said of the wide-spreading work of Seventh-day Adventists:HEVI 80.11

    “Small though the denomination is, it has its missionaries scattered through every region of the globe.”HEVI 80.12

    “One in every fourteen of their members,” says another editor, “is a full-time worker. They emphasize the world-wide objective.”HEVI 80.13

    Of course, it had to be so. The prophecy foretold it. Every believer in this message is born into it by the new birth as one more servant of God pledged to hasten the movement on the way toward “every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.” That is the aim. There can be no shadow of turning from that purpose. We dare not grow weary or slacken our energies.HEVI 80.14
