    The Message Spreads

    America became the center of the great advent movement. The writings of Miller and his associates were carried to distant lands, wherever missionaries had penetrated in all the world. Far and wide spread the message of the everlasting gospel: “Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come.”HF 228.5

    The prophecies which seemed to point to the coming of Christ in the spring of 1844 took deep hold of the minds of the people. Many were convinced that the arguments from the prophetic periods were correct, and sacrificing pride of opinion, they joyfully received the truth. Some ministers left their salaries and churches and united in proclaiming the coming of Jesus. Comparatively few ministers, however, would accept this message; therefore it was largely committed to humble laymen. Farmers left their fields; mechanics, their tools; traders, their merchandise; professional men, their positions. They willingly endured toil, privation, and suffering, that they might call men to repentance unto salvation. The advent truth was accepted by thousands.HF 229.1
