The 1843 chart, Slovak
This is the Millerite chart from 1843 in Slovak language. Published according to the prophecy in Habakkuk; “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it” Habakkuk 2:2 Ellen White wrote the following about this chart; “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; that His hand was over and hid a mistake in some of the figures, so that none could see it, until His hand was removed.” Early Writings, pg 74
This chart is a graphical representation of the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation. It was the chief visual aid used by all the Millerite preachers until the first disappointment. The error it contains is the misunderstanding of the ending of the great time prophecies in the Bible. It was first published in 1842, but is called the 1843 chart because it predicted the end of the world and second coming of Christ in the year 1843. This mistake was later corrected with the publishing of the 1850 chart.
