THE LOUD CRY MOVEMENT
 The onset of the Loud Cry Message, 1888, set forth the commencementof Latter Rain, the Holy Spirit’s early Rain
 — 
see James 5:7. During this historical time,
gave memorable sermons regarding the well-needed subject of Righteousness by Faith, the Third Angel's message in verity 
 — 
see Deut. 32:2, Joel 2:23,Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel workers p. 91, Review and Herald: April 1, 1890; April 21, 1891; March 22, 1892 paragraph 13.Regarding the Most Precious message of Righteousness by Faith, how can one determinethat it is definitively the Loud cry? Notice in the following quote that Sister Whitementions a specific 
that is “more precious than life”, correlating it to the Latterrain, which is synonymous with the Loud cry (the Most Precious messages of Righteousness by Faith
 — 
see Testimonies to Ministers p. 91). Here is the quote found inEarly Writings p. 271: “The honest who had been prevented from hearing the truth now eagerly laid hold upon it. All fear of their relatives was gone, and the truth alone wasexalted to them. They had been hungering and thirsting for truth; it was dearer and moreprecious than life. I asked what had made this great change. An angel answered, ‘It is thelatter rain, the refreshing from the presence of the Lord, the loud cry of the thirdangel.’”

  As a highlight, the message of righteousness by faith touched the hearts of many as: “Tomany, the message of righteousness by faith struck home, and there was a response of heart and soul which led to victorious experience in personal 
living. There were others who identified themselves with certain cautious and conservative leadersfrom Battle Creek who saw what they thought were perils in some of the teachingspresented. When the Conference came to a close, these men had failed to gain the blessing God had in store for them”.

 Regarding the 1888 General Conference meeting, Mrs. Ellen White reported thefollowing in the Review and Herald July 23, 1889: “On Sabbath, truths were presentedthat were new to the majority of the congregation. Things new and old were broughtforth from the treasure house of God's Word. Truths were revealed which the people were scarcely able to comprehend and appropriate. Light flashed from the
 of God in relation to the law and the
, in relation to the fact that Christ is ourrighteousness, which seemed to souls who were hungry for truth, as light too precious to be received”.

 Regarding A. T. Jones' sermons Mrs. White added: "I have attended all but two morningmeetings. At eight o'clock Brother Jones speaks upon the subject of justification by faith,and great interest is manifested. There is a growth in faith and in the knowledge of ourLord and Saviour Jesus

meeting: “The General Conference session of 1889 was held in Battle Creek fromOctober 18 to November 11. Ellen White joyfully reported that the "spirit that wasin the meeting at Minneapolis" was absent and "there seems to be no dissension."

 Sadly A.T. Jones’ most precious messages regarding Justification by Faith were rejected by the General Conference's Committee, even after Mrs. Ellen White wrote the followingregarding its Truth
 — 
TM p. 91. Per Review and Herald Sept. 3rd, 1889: “There is greatneed that Christ should be preached as the only hope and salvation. When the doctrineof justification by faith was presented at the 
Rome 
meeting, it came to many as watercomes to the thirsty traveler. The thought that the righteousness of Christ is imputed tous, not because of any merit on our part, but as a free gift from God, seemed a preciousthought”. Additionally, she stated that "The righteousness of Christ by faith has beenignored by some; for it is contrary to their spirit, and their whole life experience".
