The Great Controversy Chapter 18 Part 3: An American Reformer

Pastor Ted Wilson continues with Part Three, studying Chapter 18 of The Great Controversy this week, in which “An American Reformer,” William Miller, learned that a day in Bible prophecy represents a year. Using this information, Miller was determined to solve the longest time prophecy in the Bible, found in Daniel 8.


Using prayer as his guide and Scripture as his textbook, Miller determined through mathematic calculation that the 2300-day prophecy should be fulfilled in 1844. However, Christ did not return in 1844, so we, like Miller, are faced with understanding the meaning of the 2300-day prophecy. 

To learn more about “An American Reformer” and how it relates to our present experience, read The Great Controversy by Ellen White at and join us next week for more.
