The Seventh Day Sabbath Sought Out (1657)
by Thomas Tillam - Minister of the Gospel
Found by a Seventh-day Adventist Religious Liberty Attorney while researching at the Notre-Dame Library, this recently re-discovered book is probably one of the oldest known author or publishings, outside of the Bible, that recognizes the Seventh-day Sabbath would be a test at the end of time and would stand in distinct contrast to the mark of the beast, or the attempted change in "times and laws" by men. This pre-dates the Seventh-day Adventist church by nearly 200 years, and even mentions "the last great controversy". This demonstrates that this concept is neither new nor uniquely Seventh-day Adventist and was, in point of fact, founded during the reformation! This is a very exciting find that we believe every christian should read and be aware of! To God be the glory!
