“God sent His angel to move upon the heart of a farmer who had not believed the Bible, to lead him to search the prophecies. Angels of God repeatedly visited that chosen one, to guide his mind and open to his understanding prophecies which had ever been dark to God's people. The commencement of the chain of truth was given to him , and he was led on to search for link after link, until he looked with wonder and admiration upon the Word of God .” Early Writings, 229. A favorite author of mine once wrote ,

“From a farther study of the Scriptures, I concluded that the seven times of Gentile supremacy must commence when the Jews ceased to be an independent nation at the captivity of Manasseh, which the best chronologers assigned to B. C. 677 .” Memoirs of William Miller, S. Bliss , 76. William Miller wrote,

We naturally conclude, solely from spiritual comparison (1 Cor. 2:13) of two Bible passages, that Nebuchadnezzar suffered under what was essentially the same divine curse as Moses described in Leviticus 26:13-45. It should be clear that we may learn the pattern of how the Mosaic curse fulfills from Nebuchadnezzar’s experience.

Pattern of Divine Curse Fulfillment:

7 years which is 2,520 days under the curse Pattern of Divine Curse Fulfillment Loss of national sovereignty Pride and self-exaltation Understanding and reason return. Glory given to God. Lifts up eyes unto heaven As seen in Daniel 4

“ And we can have confidence that He that takes notice of the sparrow, and numbers the hairs of our head, will guard the translation of His own word, and throw a barrier around it, and prevent those who sincerely trust in God, and put implicit confidence in His word , from erring far from the truth, though they may not understand Hebrew or Greek .” At the end of his “ Rules of Interpretation,” William Miller wrote, “I have found the Bible as a whole, one of the most simple, plain, and intelligible books ever written.” He testified,

Endorsement of Miller’s Rules:

“Those who are engaged in proclaiming the third angel's message are searching the Scriptures upon the same plan that Father Miller adopted… Father Miller gives…simple but intelligent and important rules for Bible study and interpretation…in our study of the Bible we shall all do well to heed the principles set forth.” Review and Herald , 11/25/1884, par. 23, 25. Endorsement of Miller’s Rules

Miller’s 12th Rule:
