The Cleansing of the Sanctuary

Daniel 8:14 ——– What was to happen at the end of the 2300 days?

NOTE: The Bible only refers to two sanctuaries, one on earth and the

other in heaven.

Exodus 25:8, 9 ———— After what, was he to build the sanctuary?

Hebrews 8:1, 2, 5 —————- Where is the location of the original?

Daniel 12:7 ————- How long were God’s people to be scattered?

Revelation 12:14 ——– How long was the church in the wilderness?

Revelation 11:2 — How long was Jesus’ heavenly ministry despised?

Revelation 13:5 — How long was the beast to have undisputed power?

NOTE: We shall now establish that these seven references all refer to

the same period of time.

Genesis 7:11 ———————————– When did the flood begin?

Genesis 7:24 ———————————– How long did it continue?

Genesis 8:3, 4 —————- When did the ark rest upon Mt. Ararat?

NOTE: From the above verses we discover that a month consists of 30

days. From the seventeenth day of the second month to the

seventeenth day of the seventh month (or five months) equals 150 days.

Thus the 42 months of prophecy would equal 1260 days (42 months x

30 days = 1260 days). In the Bible a “time” equals one year (Dan.

4:23, 32), “times” equals two years, and “a dividing of time” or “half

a time” would equal a half of a year. Thus a time would be 360 days

(30 days in a month times 12 months in a year), times would be 720

days (two times 360), and a dividing or half a time would be 180 days

(one half of 360) making a total of 1260 days. Therefore, we can

readily see that all seven of these passages refer to the same period of

time.

Ezekiel 4:6 ——————– How long does a day equal in prophecy?

NOTE: This 1260 years refers to the period of undisputed power of the

“little horn,” “beast,” “man of sin,” or “antichrist” from 538 until it

received its “deadly wound” in 1798.
