God’s method in the judgment: prophet warns, physical signs present, time adjudcated and judgement/invesitgation done. time to rock and roll.

Dual Fulfilment of the 6th seal. What has already gone. To the millerites, this was prophecy fulfilling right before their eyes. The third angel had begun. They saw everything as linear - which it is but till the doors are shut, these messages are also cyclical calling all to repentance and faith.

Dual Fulfilment what is to come. 140000 v 200M. Jacob’s time of trouble. Sunday law. contrasted with the latter rain, the chruch running but saving. Close of probation.

What assurances have we got at this time? Look to Jesus comments.

Great Controversy Chapter 18—An American Reformer

And why were the doctrine and preaching of Christ’s second coming so unwelcome to the churches? While to the wicked the advent of the Lord brings woe and desolation, to the righteous it is fraught with joy and hope. This great truth had been the consolation of God’s faithful ones through all the ages; why had it become, like its Author, “a stone of stumbling” and “a rock of offense” to His professed people? It was our Lord Himself who promised His disciples: “If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself.” John 14:3. It was the compassionate Saviour, who, anticipating the loneliness and sorrow of His followers, commissioned angels to comfort them with the assurance that He would come again in person, even as He went into heaven. As the disciples stood gazing intently upward to catch the last glimpse of Him whom they loved, their attention was arrested by the words: “Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven.” Acts 1:11. Hope was kindled afresh by the angels’ message. The disciples “returned to Jerusalem with great joy: and were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God.” Luke 24:52, 53. They were not rejoicing because Jesus had been separated from them and they were left to struggle with the trials and temptations of the world, but because of the angels’ assurance that He would come again.

The Patience of the saints will encourage those who question if they can stand in a world when the holy spirit is withdrawn. Christ is still the benchmark. Still the one who holds the scroll and still the one proving the saints. Their deliverance is just around the corner, which gives them hope.
Great Controversy Chapter 18—An American Reformer

The proclamation of Christ’s coming should now be, as when made by the angels to the shepherds of Bethlehem, good tidings of great joy. Those who really love the Saviour cannot but hail with gladness the announcement founded upon the word of God that He in whom their hopes of eternal life are centered is coming again, not to be insulted, despised, and rejected, as at His first advent, but in power and glory, to redeem His people. It is those who do not love the Saviour that desire Him to remain away, and there can be no more conclusive evidence that the churches have departed from God than the irritation and animosity excited by this Heaven-sent message.

Some run to and for. They scare folk, like 1844, pronopuncing definite times and events which are best left to speculation and faith. Of those evetns, just the Godhead knows! But faith means we trust.
