Category: .c The 2300 Days

Monday May 6, 2013

We would kindly refer you back to Wednesday’s post, May 1, for a summary of what we are about today, as we are working on the last item, No. 5, as listed there.

So what is the purpose of the 2520 prophecy? Matter of fact, what is the purpose of any of the prophecies? I like to go to extremes in thought processes, it helps to clarify the point at hand.

The 2520 prophetic timeline is a second confirmation that the year 1843 was the correct year for the calculation. The fact that God hid (and in plain sight!! mind you) that the correct date required a tighter calculation is not a fault on their part. When God hides something, no one will ever see it until he reveals it. We are his created creatures and totally dependant on him for everything, like it or not.

And it is especially true of the correct understanding of the Bible. Remember, spiritual things are spiritually understood. And this, not by the will of man. In humility we come to him for understanding.

Because we are now living in the time of the end, spoken of in Matthew 24:14, almost all prophecy has come to pass. The 2520 prophetic timeline is in this group. God told us very specifically three very important points about prophecy, found in the 1858 Great Controversy, page 148.

 

I saw that they were correct in their reckoning of the prophetic periods. Prophetic time closed in 1844.

 

Two very simple sentences, a great anchor for God’s people of the last days, the 144,000. The first item we need to understand is the plain message of the first sentence. The pioneers “were correct in their reckoning of the prophetic periods.” The message is very plain, very simple, and very direct. When someone comes along and tells you that the pioneers made a mistake, you can simply point them to this page and tell them the truth. If they will not accept the truth from God then you probably need to put some distance between you.

And just to repeat it, it is impossible for Ellen to have authored the Spirit of Prophecy, it’s far too complex for any human mind to handle. Willie and Uriah proved that when God gave them a turn at the helm. God is the author, and for the depreciated humans of these last days the authentic Spirit of Prophecy was given “not to give new light; but to impress with vividness the truths of inspiration already revealed.” This brings clarity to a correct understanding.

Second, note carefully the last two words of the first sentence, “prophetic periods.” This correctly tells us there was more than one, which includes the 2520. And third, note carefully and compare the ending of the first sentence and the last sentence. “Prophetic periods” is something different than “prophetic time.” Here again a great anchor for our faith is presented. There are far too many people that want to apply prophetic time, a day for a year, to other prophecies. This is a device of Satan that God has warned us about and provided the anchor for our faith so we will not get caught in Satan’s snare.

More specifically to the point. The 2520 and the 2300 day prophetic timelines are an integral part of the 1843 chart. The 1843 chart is an integral part of proving the Advent faith to be correct. It is instructive to see the SDA church today in wide departure from the Advent faith of the pioneers. Something is bad wrong.

Today’s SDA church will gladly teach you just how wrong the Advent pioneers were, but they have no prophet who does not breath for hours in public while in vision. What they do have is the Biblical Research Institute, and prayer that goes to the Holy place, where Satan appears to be trying to carry on the work of God by breathing on them light and power. They have no healings by the power of God. What they do have is worldly doctors and drug therapy.

They claim to be teaching the third angel’s message, but it is not a true message and here is why.

 

Those who present this message [the third angel’s] understandingly, must first show the fulfillment of the messages of the first and second angel’s [verses 6-8,] [sic] in the past Advent movement. Thus they chain all three messages together, show their harmony, and the fulfillment of God’s word in them, and the testimony relative to the second coming of Christ is bound up.

 

God’s true people will teach the third angel’s message in this way. This is far different from what the SDA church teaches. The true Advent pioneers would not be members of the apostate SDA church of today.

All have to choose who they will follow, Christ or loyalty to the SDA church, none can have both.

God Bless your study
