Millennial and apocalyptic traditions in prophecy cross-fertilize the broader reformative tradition. The chapter examines end-time prophecies including forecasts of race greatness and a contrasting nonracial universalism; reconstructs and analyzes John Jasper’s famed “Sun” and less-known “Stone Cut Out of the Mountain” sermons; and discusses parallel uses by major reformative prophets.
