Exposing Adventism - William Miller's 1843 Chart Was As God Wanted It


  • Ellen White said Miller was right in his 1843 message when he was wrong.
  • Ellen White said those who rejected Miller’s erroneous 1843 message were working on the side of Satan and were rejected by God.
  • Ellen White said Miller’s 1843 chart was just as God wanted it and it should never be changed, although it was wrong.
  • Ellen White said God held his hand over the mistake in Miller’s 1843 chart, thus making God a partner in their deception.
  • Ellen White said that as soon as God removed his hand which covered the mistake in Miller’s 1843 chart, the Millerites discovered their error, thus corroborating the fact that she makes God at least partially responsible for their error.
  • Ellen White said that all the prophecies—probably Miller’s 15 proofs—which pointed to the 1843 date, then correctly pointed to the 1844 date.
  • Ellen White said that when Christians repeated to the Millerites the words of Jesus in Mark 13:32, “no man knoweth the day and the hour,” they were manifesting the spirit of Satan.
  • Ellen White said the 1844 message was a “saving message” and “a message from heaven.”
  • Pastors who rejected Miller’s erroneous message were said to have “the blood of souls” upon them.
  • Churches who rejected Miller’s false 1844 message were dubbed “Babylon,” and were understood to be apostate, “fallen” churches.
Ellen White wrote:
I have seen that the 1843 chart was directed by the hand of the Lord, and that it should not be altered; that the figures were as He wanted them. Early Writings, p. 74
She also wrote
I also saw that God was in the proclamation of the time in 1843. It was His design to arouse the people and bring them to a testing point, where they should decide for or against truth. Early Writings, p. 232
Ministers who would not accept this saving message themselves hindered those who would have received it. Early Writings, p. 235
Angels were watching with the deepest interest the result of the heavenly message, and when the churches turned from and rejected it, they in sadness consulted with Jesus. Early Writings, p. 235

The bottom line: What Ellen White said was right, was wrong. What she said was wrong, was right.
