NOTE: In such reports as this one can see the prophecied consensus preparing and forming than "men are offending God by the violation of the Sunday-sabbath, that this sin has brought calamities," "preventing their restoration to divine favor and temporal prosperity." "Thus the accusation urged of old against the servant of God will be repeated, and upon grounds equally well established. 'And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord, and thou hast followed Baalim.' As the wrath of the people shall be excited by false charges, they will pursue a course toward God's ambassadors very similar to that which apostate Israel pursued toward Elijah." GC 590.
