How ancient is this doctrine of Christ's coming?


"And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord comes with ten
thousands of His saints, to execute judgment upon all." Jude 14, 15.
NOTE - Seeking to cast reflection upon modern believers in the advent doctrine, a man in
Hungary not long ago remarked to a colporteur of this faith that he had heard that the first Adventist
preacher is still living. "Yes," replied the colporteur, "the first Adventist preacher is still living, yet the
Adventist faith is thousands of years old. The Bible says that Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, preached
the coming of Christ in glory and power, and Enoch is still living without seeing death, and will never die."
He was translated to heaven.
