60. The "The Year 1881" the "last (lost) member" of the 144000

The "The Year 1881" the "last (lost) member" of the 144000 
I read on the internet that a Bible Student leader - I forgot his name - claimed that he is the last member of the 144000. 
Very funny. Now, seriously, I think the same speculation inspired both Russell and this "last (lost)" speculator.

"The Year 1881"  

"We know not the day or hour, but expect it during 1881, possibly near the autumn where the parallels show the favour to Zion complete and due to end, the door to the marriage to shut and the high calling to be the bride of Christ, to cease.)" R191 

In May 1881 issue, there appeared an article entitled: "The Year 1881" in the article were some thoughts as to what was to be expected on October 02, 1881. The Pastor believed and taught that the door to the high calling would be shut and all opportunity to enter in would be fruitless. 

"We have no desire to dogmatize nor to keep any one out, but we [believe] (and therefore speak) that the favour which ends this fall, is that of entering the [Bride company]. We believe the [door of favour] is now open and any who consecrate [all] and give up [all], can come in to the wedding and become members of the Bride, but that with this year the company will be reckoned [complete] and the [door to that high calling] (not the door of mercy) closed forever." R224 

In R833, the Pastor still believed the door was closed with no opportunity to get in, although he did believe that the sleeping saints were resurrected in 1881.!
