Adam Ramdin
Audio Only


Two men, named William Foy and Hazen Foss received the prophetic gift during the 1840s, though each would have vastly different experiences in their life and ministry. One was faithful and shared what he has seen and was one unfaithful to the call with very sobering consequences.

Ellen White wasn't the 1st or only person to receive visions during this time period 2 men also received the gift of prophecy but each one would have vastly different experiences and outcomes in their lives and ministry God often overlooks people that are qualified in an earthly sense and uses those who others might not academic qualifications eloquent speech and a popular personality all valued by society but God looks for the person who is humble who if they are used will bring honor to God The 1st person worthy of our mention is William Fort. William for an African-American was known as an exceptional speaker and was in his early twenties an 1842 when he received several dramatic visions The 1st was on January the 18th and it lasted for 2 and a half hours and happened in a church in Suffolk Street here in Boston a position was present and could detect no sign of life except around his heart his breath had left him he had a 2nd vision on February the 4 that lasted but the teen and a half hours and was instructed to share this vision with others. Who was hesitant to go public due to the large amount of prejudice he would receive as an African-American join. This period of America's history yet when he received an invitation to speak in the church and share his vision he agreed the church gladly heard his message and he soon got invitations over the next 3 months to speak in churches of all different denominations William faithfully as a prophet in the pre great disappointment period he never said that his gift would extend for a long time or that he would receive more visions the evidence seems to suggest that he received a specific message for a specific time and that he faithfully fulfilled this task. The 2nd man to receive visions was named Hasan fought in January of 1845 he met Ella white and told his story shortly after she received her 1st vision he received the exact same vision and was instructed to tell others about it yet he did it still upset after the great disappointment of 1844 and possibly not wanting to open himself to ridicule he refused the Lord came to him and told him that he would have another opportunity yet if he still refused the gift would be given to somebody else even with such a warning he manifested a recalcitrant and rebellious attitude and did not share and a strange feeling came over him and he heard a voice say you have grieved away the Spirit of God. Frightened and horrified he decided he would share the vision and called a meeting of the Advent believers he explained to those present what had happened but when it came time to share the vision he couldn't remember any of it not even a single word those present later described it as a most horrible and sobering scene at. He implored her to be faithful to the gift had given her and lamented himself as a lost man he would live to. Analyze and bury here but in his life he would never show any more spiritual interest again. In northern Maine the grave. And so we have the story of 2 men one obedient to the call of God and one resistant to the call of God The best time to follow God the best times to follow his. Is always the earliest time it is never good. To debate. With. You to ministry. Where ever he leads.
