So William is asking what is meant of the 2300 morning and nights in David H.

Speaker 2

All right, William, I was so excited to see this question come in. So, like, Tina and I, probably the two of us, we have seen probably short between the two of us, 100 different sermons on the 2300 days. And I have only heard one that really goes into what the morning and evenings are. And, Tina, I’m just curious, have you ever studied it or got any good answer? What the morning and evenings or morning and nights are?

Speaker 1

Are you talking about Daniel, chapter 814, right, yes, Daniel. I know, because I know he put David eight. So I think there was just a little mix up there with the name. That’s right, yeah, the morning and nights, I’ve never heard that. I just understand it to be another 2300 days shall the sanctuary be cleansed. Like, I’m just quoting the Bible verse and that’s the only version I know. And so, obviously, I take that to be prophetic days, which is a day for a year of prophecy. So this is 2300 days, prophetically, 2300 years, literally, as far as this prophecy.

Speaker 2

So this prophecy is actually a unique one and this one within our faith group, I think a lot of us miss this, and that’s why I was so amazed by this one presentation I heard. So this could blow everybody’s minds, perhaps. So let’s put it up first. Let’s look at the new King James. So, as Tina said, Daniel eight, verse 14, and he said to me, for 2300 days, then the sanctuary shall be cleansed. So days and cleanse, keep those both in mind. Now, if we’re able to put up the NIV, I think that would be good. NAV has a little bit different. He said to me, yeah, 2300 evenings and mornings, then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated. So now we have evenings and mornings and then reconscrated. I think the NFV here did a better job. It actually was followed more closely. The Hebrew, when it translated evenings and mornings, it’s not Yam, which normally we see for a day, it was a different word. The words like we see in Genesis when it says evening and morning were the first day. That’s the wording it’s using here in the Hebrew. But then the NIV uses word reconsecrated.

Speaker 2

I don’t think that was as good. King James version, I’m going to say, does a better job when it says cleanse. And that word cleanse there is more consistent with the Greek translation of the Old Testament that Jesus had in his day. And so the 70 Jewish scholars back then decided that should be cleansed, or the Greek word equivalent for cleanse carthazzo, like where we get karthesis from. And we’re going to come back to that. That’s why I’m talking about cleanse, because what is the significance of the evenings and mornings is going to tie into this cleanse. So as tina mentioned, there’s this concept for a day for year principle, for a lot of prophecies, where God will use the term days. But really, if you treat those days as years, things work out just right, including this 2300. It’s a very important concept, a day for a year. I’m not going to go into more detail on that. But this one, there’s another way that we could get to why it’s a day for a year and it goes back to we’re not specifically given days in this process. It says evenings and mornings.

Speaker 2

So it’s talking about a particular day and 2300 of these particular days. What day would that be? What day would there be a particular day? And it’s telling us 2300 will pass and then the sanctuary will be cleansed. So to understand this, we have to step back and look at this whole prophecy and look at it as a whole. So it begins on in Daniel eight, verse one says, the third year of the King of Queensa. I had a vision after the one that had already appeared to me, so I already had the vision that we see in Daniel six to seven. Now we’re looking at this one in Daniel eight and he has similar imagery. But now, instead of these different beasts, he’s seen a different set of beasts. In Daniel three, he sees a ram which had two horns. So a ram with two horns. And then in Daniel five, he sees now a male goat. He’s gone from saying bears and lions and all these things sitting out. There’s a ram with horns and there’s a goat that also has a horn. And then that horn breaks and then we get smaller horns, rams, goats.

Speaker 2

Where do we see this imagery of it in the Old Testament, Daniel eight to nine, we see there’s this little horn. Daniel eight, verse nine says, and out of one of these came a little horn. There was these horns that broke off from the ram and that little horn grew seedingly great towards the south, towards east, towards the glorious land, and it grew up to the host of heaven. And it cast down some of the hosts and some of the stars to the ground and trampled him. He even exalted himself as high as the prince of the host and by him, the daily. By the way that word sacrifice was added in, it really literally just says the daily were taken away and the place of his sanctuary was cast down, is being capitalized. So God’s sanctuary being cast down because of the transaction, an army was given over to the horn to oppose the daily and he cast truth down to the ground. He did all this and prospered. So we’re now seeing horn, horn, horn, daily, the daily and sanctuary. Horn, daily, sanctuary, goat, ram. What do these all have in common? It is the old sanctuary.

Speaker 2

It’s pointing to the sanctuary practices of the Old Testament, the daily is being taken away. But there’s something else, though, that they have in common. And the big one is that really the biggest clue what these are all pointing to. Daniel eight, verse 13. We don’t have to guess. Then I heard a holy one speaking and another holy one said to the certain one who was speaking, how long will the vision be concerning the daily and the transgression of desolation, the giving of both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled underfoot? So basically, how long is this vision, all these events we saw taking place and all this, how long is that going to be? And he said to me, for 2300 days or the evenings and mornings, then the sanctuary shall be cleansed. When does the sanctuary get cleansed in the Old Testament? And that’s why I said it was important to understand, is it cleansed versus is it reconstructed that we’re talking about if you’re looking at cleanse now, we understand that this is talking about a very special day that happened once a year for the Jews. And that was the day of Atonement.

Speaker 2

And the Day of Atonement is very interesting. It is the only one of the Jewish festivals for which we have the term evening to evening being mentioned. Let’s look at Leviticus 23 27 to 28. Leviticus 23. Starting at first 27, it reads also the 10th day of the Sabbath month shall be the day of Atonement. It shall be a holy consecration for you. You shall afflict your souls and offering made by fire to the Lord, and you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the day of Atonement to make atonement for you before the Lord your God. It shall be to you a Sabbath of solemn rest and you shall flick your souls on the 9th day of the month, at evening to evening. You shall celebrate your Sabbath evening to evening. There’s this 24 hours period, god saying, that was the day of Atonement. And now this prophecy is also saying, hey, there’s this 24 hours period and there’s going to be 2300 of these 2300 days of Atonements will pass by, and then the sanctuary will be cleansed. Which sanctuary would that one be? Sanctuary in heaven. And it sends God’s church on earth at the same time as the study for itself too.

Speaker 2

That is the significance of it, the evenings and mornings. And the math works out amazingly on this, as Tina mentioned, there’s that seven week prophecy sorry, seven year prophecy. Sorry, 490 day prophecy, where if you go down to Daniel, verse chapter eight, the angel Gabriel reappears and starts explaining the rest of this prophecy and explains that there’s this chunk of 490 years that are going to be given over to the Jews. And the last week of those 490 is when the Messiah was going to show up. And the Messiah is showing up, begins with the baptism of Christ. And if you crunch all the numbers and all that, you’ll find Christ was baptized in around the day of Atonement. He was 30 years old then. He probably had just turned 30. So Jesus was actually born close to day of Atonement, not Christmas time around day of Atonement. And then if you go six months forward from Day of Atonement, or if you do the math or the distance between yeah, I think it’s half a year, half a year from David Atonement to when Passover is six months. So you go three and a half years forward, you get to Price Crucifixion, which is what Daniel Eight says.

Speaker 2

Also says in the middle of the week, masai will be cut off. So I hope this gives you more sense of what this is talking about. It is talking about 2300 days of atonement this evening to morning, even the evening period that represents that very special time of day of Atonement, leading to the ultimate day of Atonement, or period of David atonement, which we are actually in now. But that’s also a study for itself. Tina, what do you think of that?

Speaker 1

Yeah, spawn good stuff. I love the Book of Daniel, and I love this prophecy. This is like, honestly, probably my favorite prophecy in the entire Bible is the 2300 day prophecy because it brings into view the sanctuary. It brings into view God’s end day, people. It brings into view the Second Coming and gets you to realize where we are at in Earth’s history and just to realize that we’re living in that last day of atonement and that Jesus is coming very soon. And I love, love this too, because it also ties into who Jesus is, his role as high priest in heaven. And you see this in the Book of Hebrews, chapter eight, verses one and two. Or it talks about Jesus being the high priest in the heavenly sanctuary that the Lord pitched, did not man, and he set up the right hand and it’s his blood that atones us. And the whole gospel story starts making sense as far as why Jesus came and died on the cross because he was the Lamb to cleanse us. And that’s why we have a sanctuary, so that we could go to be cleansed by the Lamb.

Speaker 1

And there’s too much there’s so much to do. This it’s hard to get into everything. But I absolutely love this study. And my friend, I hope that you continue to study God’s word and dig deep because there’s a lot more there. It’s so beautiful when you just start to understand and tie the pieces together in the Bible. But yeah, absolutely. We are definitely in that last day of atonement, and I just can’t wait for Jesus to come. Amen.
