45. Charles Taze Russell early view about Nelson H. Barbour as "the chosen vessel of God"

45. Charles Taze Russell early view about Nelson H. Barbour as "the chosen vessel of God"

(Time and Prophecy, by David Rice, page 9)

"Bro. Russell says of him: "A brother, Barbour of Rochester, was we believe, the chosen vessel of God
through whom the 'Midnight Cry' issued to the sleeping virgins of Christ, announcing a discrepancy
of thirty years in some of Miller's calculations, and giving a rearrangement of the same argument (and
some additional), proving that ... the morning was in 1873, and the Bridegroom due in that morning
in 1874." (R288)
"Other Adventists adopted these views also. Bro. Russell wrote "I recalled certain arguments used by
my friend Jonas Wendell and other Adventists to prove that 1873 would witness the burning of the
world etc. -- the chronology of the world showing that the six thousand years from Adam ended with
the beginning of 1873 -- and other arguments drawn from the Scriptures and supposed to coincide."

Nelson H. Barbour as "the chosen vessel of God" is confirmed in another place, "The Finished Mystery", from 1917, in which is stated:

"Pastor Russell took the place of Mr. Barbour who became unfaitful and upon whom was fulfilled the prophecies of Matt. 24:48-51 and Zech. 11:15-17".

So, who knows if CT Russell had other wrong teachings or not? Certainly, God! And his words make it clear.

But was this man "the chosen vessel of God"? No. Not at all. He was just a speculator.
