 Isaiah 11:1           

And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

The Root, The Rod, The BRANCH
1844, 1930, 1955

"The Work of Christ as man's intercessor is presented in that beautiful prophecy of Zechariah concerning Him "Whose name is the Branch."  Says the prophet:  "He shall build the temple of the Lord; and He shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon His [the Father"s] throne; and He shall be a priest upon His throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between Them both"  Zechariah 6:12,13"  E.G. White, The Great Controversy, p. 415. 


The 1844 Movement - The Great Advent Awakening

An Eyewitness Account

“When the warning voice of the first angel was first heard, it found the nominal churches asleep upon the subject of the second advent, dreaming of the world’s conversion.  But the truth was clear, and, in the hands of devoted men, was powerful.  Every where the message was proclaimed it produced general conviction.  The Scriptures were searched as never before; a great revolution in the religious belief took place in a few short years; and at least fifty thousand in American alone, became decided believers.   The prophetic times in connection with that message served their purpose, and terminated with that message.   The first angel was a time message.  The second and third are not time messages.  That aroused men in view of the fast approaching Judgment.  These tell them what they must do to be saved.  …

“The title page of this work calls attention to the great Advent movement as illustrated by the three angels of Rev. xiv.  The truth and work of God in this movement, commencing with the labors of William Miller, and reaching to the close of probation, is illustrated by these three angels.   The first was a time message, and related to the Judgment.  The second described the condition of corrupted Christianity.  The third is a solemn warning relative to what men may not do, and what they must do, in order to be saved at the coming of Christ.  These angels illustrated the THREE GREAT DIVISIONS of the genuine movement. …

“I repeat it.  THE THREE MESSAGES SYMBOLIZE THE THREE PARTS OF THE GENUINE MOVEMENT. …

“Again, the sanctuary was the heart of the typical system.  It was the repository of the ark of God, in which ark His law was deposited.  By this law the people had the knowledge of sin.  It was also the place where they, in figure, found pardon for their sins through the offerings there made.  This entire system, with it great center, the sanctuary, was but a shadow of the realities of the present system of salvation.  The shadow was on earth; THE REALITY IS IN HEAVEN.  The facts are stated by the apostle in few words: “We have such an High Priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; a minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.” Heb. Viii 1,2.  The sanctuary of the new covenant, which is in Heaven, is the great heart of the plan of redemption.  There Christ offers His blood for the sins of men.  In the real tabernacle there are two holies, if there were two in the shadow.   In the holiest is the ark of God, containing the ten precepts of His law, if they were in the holiest of the shadow.   Here is a theme worthy the attention of all Christians.  And it is one in which they should feel the deepest interest, as each has a case of eternal consequences pending there.

"The work of cleansing this sanctuary, at the close of the 2300 days, is a subject which should materially interest all Adventists.   It pertains to the confession, pardon, and blotting out of sins.  A correct and intelligent faith sees the adorable Redeemer in the most holy of the true tabernacle, offering His blood before the mercy seat for the sins of those who have broken the law of God beneath it in the ark.   True faith reaches within the second veil, where Jesus and the ark of God are seen.  There, by the law we have the knowledge of sin, and through the blood of Jesus we may find pardon, and share eternal redemption.  The subject of the cleansing of this sanctuary, then, is one of the most thrilling interest, especially to all Adventists.  It is the key to the great Advent movement, making all plain.   Without it, the movement is in explicable."

    The Sanctuary in Heaven

    "Here is revealed the sanctuary of the new covenant. The sanctuary of the first covenant was pitched by man, built by Moses; this is pitched by the Lord, not by man. In that sanctuary the earthly priests performed their service; in this, Christ, our great High Priest, ministers at God's right hand. One sanctuary was on earth, the other is in heaven." {GC 413.2} (Click on picture for more)

    Revelation 14 Messages

    “All classes of second advent believers agree , that the angel brought to view in the 6th and 7th verses of this chapter represents the advent message to the church and world. If this is true, then all FIVE of the angels brought to view in this chapter, represents FIVE DISTINCT MESSAGES, prior to the advent, or we are left without a rule to interpret this chapter.” Pages 10, 11
