The presentation will focus on the various prophecies and expectations for the year 1844 derived from the prophet Daniel, the book of Revelation, and Islamic traditions. The three religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam yielded a surprising union of prophecies and traditions for that year. In the West, Christians were expecting the return of Jesus, who had often referred to His return, especially in Matthew 24. The preacher William Miller, and various colleagues within the Millerite movement, believed that the Second Coming of Jesus would occur 1844. The apparent nonappearance of Jesus that year was called the Great Disappointment. Was William Miller wrong? No! The Christ spirit did arise in the East with the Prophets of the Baha’i Faith, the Bab, and Baha’u’llah. In addition, the phenomenon of Millerism was part of God’s plan for today.
