Blessings of the Disappointment
Adventists Affirm (1994)
  • P. Gerard Damsteegt, Andrews University
I believe the pioneers would point out that they experienced the great disappointment precisely because they did believe that Christ's ministry in the most holy place began at His ascension. The disappointment itself led them to the surprising discovery that this understanding was incorrect and was out of harmony with the broader context of the whole Bible.
