This is a part 2 continuation of Habakkuk two tables and as was pointed out before, this study entails the beginning of the foundation and pillars of Seventh-Day Adventist. If you have not read part one as yet, then we encourage you to read it here: Habakkuk Two Tables part 2 – The 1843 and 1850 Charts – Part 1 and then come back here to continue.

The end from the beginning

We would like to begin by looking at the end from the beginning and to do so, we are going to be reading from (Isaiah 46:9 and 10) It says “ 9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, 10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure”
Let us also read (Ecclesiastes 3:15) And it says  “That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.”

So here we clearly see from what we have just read that God is a God who declares the end of things from the beginning of things. Also, he was in the beginning according to (John 1:1). 
Now, if God declares the end from the beginning, then we must see in history the first place where God gave his people two tables, right?
Answer: Yes
Since that is a case proven to be true, let us search in the Bible to see where was the first time that God gave two tables.

Looking at the beginning

We would like to begin our search by reading (Exodus 24:12-13) It says “12  And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them. 13  And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up into the mount of God.”

Let us also read (Exodus 31:18)And it says “And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.”

So here we can now see from what we have just read that God gave Moses two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God Himself. This was done whiles Moses was upon mount Sanai.

Here are a few questions from what we have just read about in the Bible:
A) When was the first time God gave two tables to His people?
Answer: When the children of Israel were gathered at Mount Sanai and Moses went up into the mount 
B) Who wrote on these two tables?
Answer: God
C) What was written on those two tables?
Answer: Commandments

Looking at the end

(Habakkuk 2:1-3) Says1  I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. 2  And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. 3  For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”

What can be gain from these verses?
Answer: Writing, Plain upon Tables

(Early Writings, page 74, par.1) says I have seen that the 1843 chart was directed by the hand of the Lord, and that it should not be altered; that the figures were as He wanted them; that His hand was over and hid a mistake in some of the figures, so that none could see it, until His hand was removed.” {EW 74.1}

( Manuscripts Releases volume 13, page 359, par.1) says “I saw that God was in the publishment of the chart by Brother NicholsI saw that there was a prophecy of this chart in the Bible, and if this chart is designed for God’s people, if it [is] sufficient for one it is for another, and if one needed a new chart painted on a larger scale, all need it just as much.” {13MR 359.1}

(Manuscripts Releases volume 15, page 210 par.4) says “Monday we returned to Dorchester where our dear Brother Nichols and family live. There in the night God gave me a very interesting vision, the most of which you will see in the paper. God shewed me the necessity of getting out a chart. I saw it was needed and that the truth made plain upon tables would effect much and would cause souls to come to the knowledge of the truth.”  {15MR 210.4}

We can clearly see that as the Finger of God Written on the Two Tables of stones, so has His hands directed the Writings on the 1843 and the 1850 charts.

We have reached the conclusion of this study and we hope that you can now testify to the truths that you have seen in Scriptures that God truly declares the end from the beginning and He demonstrates this by Giving two tables with commandments at Sanai and giving two tables with one having the sanctuary and the third angel’s message in the history of the Millerites.

Look out for the 3rd part of this study.
