A Message of Encouragement

1845

A large number of people at this time were bitter and disappointed when the period passed without bringing the event that was expected. For these Ellen was given a message of good cheer and encouragement. She called their attention to the fact that God had granted the world more time to prepare for His coming; that the warning of the judgment could be heard more widely; and that the people could be tested with greater light. Although the expected event did not occur (as in the case of Jonah), the message was nonetheless of God and accomplished the purpose He designed it should.

Subsequent light upon the prophecies revealed the event that did take placeóthe entering of the High Priest into the Most Holy Place of the sanctuary in heaven to finish the atonement for the sins of humanity.
