What are the most important statements of William Miller, recorded on the 1843 chart?
I don’t know that there is any specific statement of William Miller on the chart. Of course we know that the 2300 year prophecy is the foundation of Adventism that was discovered by Miller. What most of us don’t understand is that the first time prophecy that Miller discovered was the 2520 of Leviticus 26. Miller does state that the first time prophecy he discovered was the 2520 and that this prophecy led him to the 2300 year prophecy. If you look at the chart in the upper right hand corner, you’ll see the 2520 up there right next to the 2300 year prophecy. The Lord led Miller to the 2520; it would be very difficult for Miller to have come across the 2300 year prophecy without the 2520. In the center of the chart there is the cross and right underneath it, two numbers underneath it, you see the year 508 marking the time when paganism was taken away. Miller identified the daily in the book of Daniel as paganism. He is the first person in history that came to understand it that way that we know it today. Down at the bottom of the chart, you see the time prophecies, the 1290 and the 1335. These prophecies are based on the year 508 and Miller’s understanding of the daily and that 508 was the time when paganism was subdued. If you take the daily, the 2520 and the 2300 years off this chart, which are Miller’s work, it’s a pretty empty chart.
