    2. Question • What is the foundation of faith for Seventh Day Adventists?

    3. EGW • Prophecy the Foundation of Our Faith.--Ministers should present the sure word of prophecy as the foundation of the faith of Seventh-day Adventists. The prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation should be carefully studied, and in connection with them the words, "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." {Ev 196.2}

    7. Historical Understanding 2520 2008 Prophecy School

    8. Question • How did Miller discover the 2520 & 2300 Year prophecies?

    9. Miller • I began at Genesis and read on slowly; and when I came to a text that I could not understand, I searched through the Bible to find out what it meant. After I had gone through the Bible in this way, O, how bright and glorious the truth appeared. I found what I have been preaching to you. I was satisfied that the seven times terminated in 1843.

    10. Miller • Then I came to the 2300 days; they brought me to the same conclusion; but I had no thought of finding out when the Saviour was coming, and I could not believe it; but the light struck me so forcibly I did not know what to do.

    11. Miller • Now, I thought, I must put on spurs and breeching; I will not go faster than the Bible, and I will not fall behind it. Whatever the Bible teaches I will hold on to it.“ US 8R&H2 page 0009 paragraph 18 1856 Vol VIII

    12. James White • "Our minds were directed to that point of time, [1843,] from the fact that dating the several prophetic periods from those years in which the best chronologers assign the fulfillment of those events which were to mark their commencement, they all seemed to terminate that year.

    13. James White • This was, however, only apparent. We date the `seven times,' or 2520 years, from the captivity of Manasseh, which is, with great unanimity, placed by chronologers B. C. 677.

    14. James White • This date is the only one we have ever reckoned from, for the commencement of this period; and subtracting B. C. 677 from 2520 years, there remained but A. D. 1843.

    15. James White • We, however, did not observe that as it would require 677 full years B. C. and 1843 full years A. D. to complete 2520 years, that it would also oblige us to extend this period as far into A. D. 1844 as it might have commenced after the beginning of B. C. 677.

    16. Calendars & Dating 2008 Prophecy School

    17. Calendars & Dating • First 2520 is a full number. • Second when moving between BC & AD adding a the year zero separates time and dates.

    18. Calendars & Dating • Third there is no year zero in the widely used Gregorian Calendar, nor in its predecessor, the Julian Calendar. However, there is a year zero in astronomical year numbering (where it coincides with the Julian year 1 BC) and in the calendar ISO 8601.2004 (where it coincides with the Gregorian year 1 BC) as well as in all Buddhist and Hindu Lunar Calendars.

    19. Understanding Time 1 0 1 1 AD BC 1 1 0 1 1 BC BC AD AD 2520 – 722 = 1798 / 7 /9 2300 – 457 = 1843 / 2 /4 2520 – 677 = 1843 / 2 /4

    20. James White • The same was also true of the other periods. The great jubilee of 2450 years, commencing with the captivity of Jehoiakim B. C. 607; and the 2300 days, commencing with the 70 weeks B. C.

    21. James White • 457, would respectively require 1843 full years after Christ added to as many full years before Christ, as the years in which we have always respectively commenced each period, to complete the number of years in each; and as subtracting from

    22. James White • each period the date B. C. of its commencement, there would remain A. D. 1843, no reference whatever was made to the fraction of the year, which, in each case, had transpired from its commencement,

    23. James White • and which would require that each period should extend as much beyond the expiration of A. D. 1843, as they respectively began after the commencement of the year B. C. from which they are dated

    24. James White • While this discrepancy was not particularly noticed by us, it was also not noticed by any of our learned opponents. Amid all the arguments which were brought to bear against our position,

    25. James White • no allusion was made to that point; and time alone accomplished what our opponents had been unable to do, in showing our mistake in the definite year. [The Advent Review Vol. I.] - Auburn, (N. Y.) August, 1850 - [NO. 1.]

    26. EGW • I have seen that the 1843 chart was directed by the hand of the Lord, and that it should not be altered; that the figures were as He wanted them; that His hand was over and hid a mistake in some of the figures, so that none could see it, un til His hand was removed. {EW 74.1}

    27. 2520 Scattering & Gathering Prophecy School 2008

    28. Daniel 12:6 Question • And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? (Dan 12:6)

    29. Daniel 12:7 Answer • And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.(Dan 12:7)

    30. Daniel 9:11 • Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.(Dan 9:11)

    31. Daniel 9:13 • As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.(Dan 9:13)

    32. Leviticus 26 • And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. (Lev 26:18) •  And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins. (Lev 26:21)

    33. Leviticus •  Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins. (Lev 26:24) •  Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. (Lev 26:28)

    34. Leviticus • And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste. (Lev 26:33)

    35. Miller • Moses' prophecy of the scattering of the people of God among all nations "seven times;" see Lev.xxvi.14-46. It is evident that these "seven times" were a succession of years, for their land was to lie desolate as long as they were in their enemies' land.

    36. Miller • And the people of God have been scattered, and are now a scattered and a peeled people. These "seven times" are not yet accomplished, for Daniel says, "When he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people all these things shall be finished.”

    37. Miller • The resurrection and judgment will take place. Dan.xii.6,7: "And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river,

    38. Miller • when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and a half: and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.”

    39. Miller • What did the angel mean by time, times, and a half? I answer, he meant three years and a half prophetic, or forty-two months, as in Rev.xi.2, and xiii.5; or 1260 prophetic days, as in Rev.xi.3, and xii.6 and 14. He meant the one half of "seven times.”

    40. Miller • Daniel saw the same thing as Moses, only to Daniel the time was divided. He was informed that the little horn would "speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws;

    41. Miller • and they shall be given into his hand until a time, times, and the dividing of time." This makes Moses' seven times, for twice three and a half are seven, and twice 1260 are 2520 common years. But you may inquire, are not these two things the same in Daniel?

    42. Miller • I answer, no. For their work is different, and their time of existence is at different periods. The one scatters the holy people; the other wears out the saints. The one means the kingdoms which Daniel and John saw; the other means Papacy,

    43. Miller • which is called the little horn, which had not come up when the people of God were scattered by Babylon and the Romans. The first means literal Babylon or the kings of the earth, the other means mystical Babylon or Papacy. And both together would scatter the holy people and wear out the saints "seven times," or 2520 years.{Millers Works Vol #1 pg 44-45}

    44. Seven Times 2008 Prophecy School


    46. Miller • When, then, may we not ask, did the bondage of the children of God begin? I answer, when literal Babylon began to exercise authority over them. In the twenty-second year of Manasseh's reign, in the year before Christ 677, the last of the ten tribes were carried away,

    47. Miller • and Israel ceased to be a nation, according to the prophecy of Isaiah, vii.8: "For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin: and within three-score and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people."

    48. Miller • Isaiah prophesied this in the year 742 before Christ, which prophecy was literally fulfilled in sixty-five years afterwards, in the year B. C. 677. Then, too, Manasseh king of Judah was carried a captive into Babylon, and the threatenings of God began upon his people.

    49. Miller • 2Kings xxi.10-14: "And the Lord spake by his servants the prophets, saying, because Manasseh, king of Judah, hath done these abominations, and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did,

    50. Miller • which were before him, and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols: therefore, thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle.
