"Daniel 8:14...The 2300 Days"

 
Hi Doves,
 
I wanted to shed light on what I think could be a valid interpretation of the 2300 days of Daniel 8:13-14. It states, "Then I heard a holy one speaking; and another holy one said to that certain one who was speaking, "How long will the vision be, concerning the daily sacrifices and the transgression of desolation, the giving of both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled underfoot?"" The next verse, "And he said to me, "For two thousand three hundred days (2300) days; then the sanctuary shall be cleansed."
 
So, I would think that the sanctuary would start to be cleansed on the day of Christ's return, since the antichrist and his forces are done with and the cleansing can begin uninterrupted. Now "days" in this passage means evening-mornings; 1 evening and 1 morning which makes a 24hr day...So if you divide 2300 by 2 (an evening and a morning) you get 1150 24hr days.
 
So, if this passage is interpreted as 1150-24 hr days, and if this count ends upon Christ's return on Sept. 23, 2015, it appears to span from the 9th of Av 2012 to Sept. 23, 2015...lets refine this:
 
Now, this breaks it down by hour. If you consider a 12hr morning and 12hr evening, and consider, "giving of both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled underfoot" starts at sunset (Jerusalem time) on the 28th of July 2012 (9th of Av!!)...you can count 1150-24hr days and come to the morning of Sept. 22, 2015... 24 hours later is the morning of Sept. 23, 2015 feast of Atonement/Yom Kippur...the first day of Jubilee...and the cleansing of the temple begins!! You can only come to this by counting in hours...there's a big difference between being accurate and being precise!! Try it for yourself...1150 days is 27,600 hours...apply this to the evening of the 9th of Av (July 28, 2012) and it takes you to the morning of Sept. 22, 2015 exactly...24hrs later is Sept. 23, 2015 Jerusalem time!!! However...I will admit there is a gap of 12 hours in this model that I am unable to account for...but with such proximity to this significant date I wonder if its even an issue.
 
Now, to be transparent, this verse is different in language from Daniel 12:11, "And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred ninety (1290) days." It is different because whereas Dan 12:11 talks about the abomination which causes desolation being set up, Dan 8:14 talks separately about the sanctuary and host being trampled underfoot. Both give different time frames indicating that they are 2 different events...Let me explain...
 
Assuming the tribulation timeline of Oct. 29, 2008 to Sept. 23, 2015 is correct (and I have not found anything to the contrary...all variables have to fit)...the mid point (or middle of tribulation) would be April 11, 2012...which is also Passover. If we apply the 1290 days of Daniel 12:11, subtracting from 9/23/15..we come to exactly 30 days (1 month) prior to the mid point of the tribulation...March 12, 2012. Interesting (333) if you are familiar with the illuminatist. I believe it is at this point the sacrifice is taken away and the abomination is set up. Then 1 month later which is Passover April 11, 2012...the mid point of the tribulation, the antichrist is mortally wounded (probably from setting up the image), comes back to life shortly after and claims to be the new Christ...just like Christ did, crucified on Passover, raised 3 days later. It isn't until July 28, 2012 (9th of Av) that "the giving of both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled underfoot" occurres. 
 
I don't think its a stretch. Consider, the antichrist is only in power during the last 3.5 years of the tribulation. Now, 2012 is the year Illuminatist await their "devils messiah". Additionally, the Mayans believe their "feathered snake god" Quetzalcoatl arrives during 2012 as well. Interesting: didn't they just come out with a 13th sign of the "snake bearer" which corresponds to the last portion of the year containing Dec. 21, 2012? 2012  just so happens to contain the mid point of the tribulation when the antichrist is also supposed to become embodied with Satan and come to power..."with all lying signs and wonders". So then 2011 has to be significant if this is the year before all this occurs!!! And indeed...2011 seems to be off to a foreboding start...
 
Hopefully the 2300 days of Daniel 8:13-14 make sense as it appears to fit hand in glove with the 9th of Av 5775 (July 28, 2012) to Tishri 9, 5776 (Sept. 22, 2015). Sept. 23, 2015/Atonement/Jubilee is the next day!!
 
Blessings,
