"[The "French Prophets"] first appeared in Dauphiny and the Cevennes, in France, about the year 1688; ... When they were receiving the spirit of prophesy, They spake of the new heavens, the new earth, the first resurrection, and the new Jerusalem descending from above ... they professed to have visions and revelations of the downfall of the kingdom of anti-christ, and that the second coming of Christ, or millennium, as prophesied of in the scriptures, was then actually commencing."

[Thomas Brown, 'An Account of the People Called Shakers'; Grunder, Rick, Mormon Parallels: A Bibliographic Source]
