In the West, the Millerite movement expected the Advent, the Second Coming of Jesus, in 1844. It was believed that the prophet Daniel had foreseen this event:
He [a Holy one] said to me, ‘It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated. … understand that the vision concerns the time of the end’.Daniel 8:13‒14, 17
The biblical method of counting, a year for a day, started at 457 BCE, the date of the edict of Artaxerxes that allowed the Jews to return from Babylon to Jerusalem. The number of days from 457 BCE to 1844 CE was 1,844.
When the Advent did not happen as expected. The Great Disappointment ensued. Miller was wrong, wasn’t he?
Miller had followed biblical guidance as best he could, and he may well have been part of God’s plan in the nineteenth century. Miller and other Adventist Bible scholars did accurately pinpoint the year 1844, but fascinating events unfolded a world away in Persia of which they knew nothing.
In the East, Shia Muslims were expecting the return of the twelfth Imam, who would usher in an Islamic paradise on earth. According to Shia belief, this transition would be aided by Jesus.
The dawn of God’s Prophets of today’s major religions had all risen in the East. Did the spirit of Christ return in 1844 in the Middle East?
