Great Disappointment
The GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT in the Millerite movement was the reaction that followed Baptist
Baptist
preacher William Miller 's proclamations that Jesus
Jesus
Christ would return to the Earth in 1844, what he called the Advent
Advent
. His study of the Daniel 8 prophecy during the Second Great Awakening led him to the conclusion that Daniel's "cleansing of the sanctuary" was cleansing of the world from sin when Christ would come, and he and many others prepared, but October 22, 1844 came and they were disappointed. These events paved the way for the Adventists who formed the Seventh-Day Adventist Church

Branch Davidians
The BRANCH DAVIDIANS (also known as "The Branch") are a religious group that originated in 1955 from a schism in the Davidian Seventh-day Adventists ("Davidians"), a reform movement that began as an offshoot from the Seventh-day Adventist Church ("Adventists") around 1930. Some of those who accepted the reform message had been removed from membership of the Seventh-day Adventist Church because of their supplemental teachings. Today, the original Davidian Seventh-day Adventists and the Branch Davidian Seventh-day Adventists are two different and distinct groups. The doctrinal beliefs differ on major teachings such as the Holy Spirit and Its nature, and the feast days and their requirements. Both groups have disputed the relevance of the other's spiritual authority based on the proceedings following Victor Houteff's death

Christian Conditionalism
In Christian theology , CONDITIONALISM or CONDITIONAL IMMORTALITY is a concept of special salvation in which the gift of immortality is attached to (conditional upon) belief in Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ
. This doctrine is based in part upon another theological argument, that if the human soul is naturally mortal , immortality ("eternal life ") is therefore granted by God as a gift. This viewpoint stands in contrast to the more popular doctrine of the "natural immortality" of the soul . Conditionalism is usually paired with mortalism and annihilationism , the belief that the unsaved will be ultimately destroyed and cease to exist, rather than suffer unending torment in hell . The view is also connected with the idea of soul sleep , in which the dead sleep unconscious until the Resurrection

of the Dead to stand for a Last Judgment before the World to Come

Premillennialism
PREMILLENNIALISM, in Christian eschatology , is the belief that Jesus will physically return to the earth (the Second Coming ) before the Millennium , a literal thousand-year golden age of peace. The doctrine is called "premillennialism" because it holds that Jesus' physical return to earth will occur prior to the inauguration of the Millennium. Premillennialism is based upon a literal interpretation of Revelation 20:1–6 in the New Testament , which describes Jesus' reign in a period of a thousand years. Others, such as many (but not all) in the Eastern Orthodox communion, claim that this passage of Revelation describes the present time, when Christ reigns in Heaven with the departed saints ; such an interpretation views the symbolism of Revelation as referring to a spiritual battle rather than a physical battle on earth

Intermediate State
In some forms of Christian eschatology , the INTERMEDIATE STATE or INTERIM STATE refers to a person's "intermediate" existence between one's death and the universal resurrection . In addition, there are beliefs in a Particular judgment right after death and a General judgement or Last judgment after the resurrection. Christians looked for an imminent end of the world and many of them had little interest in an interim state between death and resurrection. The Eastern Church admits of such an intermediate state, but refrained from defining it, so as not to blur the distinction between the alternative definitive fates of Heaven and Hell
