"Daniel's 2300 days"


 
John and Doves,

Daniel 8:13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? 14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

Many Christians see a single event in verse 13, represented by " concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?" But I see two events. Verse 13 speaks of the fate of the daily sacrifice once it is restored and re-instituted by the Jews.

The first event is " Concerning the daily sacrifice". It speaks of day one when this daily sacrifice is restored by the Jews at some point in tribulation. The second event is the fate of this daily sacrifice represented by "the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot" This event shall take place in mid trib when AC breaks the covenant and changes the times and law of Israel ( Daniel 7:25). The time is their feasts and the law is their Torah. Their sanctuary shall also be trodden under foot by gentiles.

If we take away the second event " the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot" from verse 13, we have this;

"How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice? 
And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed."

Daniel was told the daily sacrifice can only last 2300 days. After this period, sanctuary shall be cleansed and Holy will be restored. It means from the first day the daily sacrifice is restored and re-instituted by the Jews, the fate of this daily sacrifice shall last 2300 days.

But during these 2300 days, this daily sacrifice shall be interrupted by "the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot". This transgression of desolation is inserted to foretell the tragic fate of this daily sacrifice.
