This page is dedicated for sharing the original writings of the Seventh Day Adventist Pioneers with the hope and desire to revive true adventism and it's purest form.
This 52 page work contains an excellent selection of articles from "The Advent Review" from 1843 and 1844 containing the First and Second Angels' Messages as they were proclaimed. The question may rise: "How is this understanding relevant to our time now?" We will let the Spirit of Prophecy give the answer:
“I saw a company who stood well guarded and firm, and would give no countenance to those who would unsettle the established faith of the body. God looked upon them with approbation. I was shown three steps--one, two and three--the first, second and third angels' messages. Said the angel, Woe to him who shall move a block, or stir a pin in these messages. The true understanding of these messages is of vital importance. The destiny of souls hangs upon the manner in which they are received.”
Ellen G. White, Spiritual Gifts vol.1, page 168.
"That there is to be a shut door prior to
the second advent, many will admit; yet but few
seem willing to have it where it actually took
place. Let us take a brief view of our past history, as marked out by the parable of the ten virgins, (Matt. 25, 1-11) and I think we shall clearly see that there can be no other place for the shut door but at the Autumn of 1844."

Many conservative, historical Sabbath-keeping Adventists [whether those worshipping within the organized denomination, or those who worship independently of the organized denomination], diligently study the writings of Elder A. T. Jones and Dr. E. J. Waggoner of 1888 fame. Nearly all of the writings that are available today were written some years after the 1888 General Conference Session. Many of these sincere individuals have almost elevated these later writings of Jones and Waggoner to the point of considering their post 1888 teachings as found in these later books as being 100% pure, unadulterated truth.
