William Miller and
The Great Disappointment


   The Reverend William Miller was a brilliant man who attempted to decipher the prophecies of Daniel. Miller's discoveries were so accurate that they still form the basis for most modern interpretations of the book of Daniel today. Miller studied the Bible in great depth for many years, and announced that he had successsfully deciphered the prophetic codes of the book of Daniel revealing the time of the end. Miller preached his controversial teachings in the churches of New England, and found many people very receptive to them. But Miller would eventually fall victim to an unfortunate error.

   Miller and his followers proclaimed that the end of the last beast of Revelation 13 would be before 1845, and that the great event would be preceeded by a Rapture of Jesus' followers up to heaven on October 22, 1844. Many Millerites trekked up to mountaintops all over the Northeastern U.S., and patiently waited to be Raptured up to heaven at the stroke of midnight. When the Rapture didn't occur, Miller's followers were forced to suffer the laughs and jeers of townfolk all over New England as they returned to their homes after their "Great Disappointment."

   Reverend Miller's mathematical calculations for the date of the Rapture were based upon the 2300 year prophecy contained in Daniel 8:14 that describes the date of the end of the last of the transgressors against the Hebrews. Well it turns out that Reverend Miller was actually correct in his calculations, but became the victim of a typographical error.
