How do we know what 1 day is in prophecy?
When we go do Daniel 9 Gabriel says that from Jerusalem rebuilt to Messiah or Jesus anointed of baptised is 69 Weeks .
DA 9 24 'Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.'
If we take Jerusalem rebuilt in 457 bc and add 69 weeks we arrive to just a few years later. The question is was Jesus baptised around 450 bc. No This does not make sense .
Then the only sensible conclusion is that a day cannot be a year . As it cannot fit bible prophecy . But when we take one day for a year principle which fits all prophecies . We find out that taking Jerusalem rebuilt in 457 bc we add 69 weeks BY 7 which is 483 years We arrive to year 27 when Jesus was baptised .
Also when Gabriel says keep this book for it is for the end of time. Then one day cannot be one literal day .
DA 12 4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased....6 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?
7 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.
...8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.'
Here we see that the prophecies of the book of Daniel refer to the end of time. So the days cannot be days but years . As the 1260 days refer to the reign of the antichrist . Did the antichrist reign 1260 days ? No The 2300 days when Jesus would enter the most holy place does it mean that 2300 days after Jerusalem was rebuild in 457 Jesus entered the most holy place,? No as Jesus was not yet born ?
So we see that the day year principle given by God to William Miller is valid and is the only correct day interpretation in bible prophecy .
NU 14 34 'After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.'
EZ 4 6 'And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year. '
Jesus said Father i to your hands i commit my spirit But 2 days later Jesus said to Mary Touch me not for I Al not yet ascended to my Father
How could Jesus go to heaven and say He did not go to heaven ? It is because the spirit is not alive without the body
The light bulb withiut electricity does not make electricity Electricity without the light bulb does not make light
Both need to be together to make light The body with the Spirit and the spirit without the body are not alive
Jesus said Lazarus is dead How could someone be dead and people teach he went to heaven ! It is because modern christianity has accepted pagan beliefs of immortality of the soul
Paul said i prefer to be with the Lord and depart from this body But did Paul says he was going to heaven as soon as he died ? As in 1 th Paul says
at the last day at the last trump the dead in Christ shall rise
this mortal shall put on immortality and this corruptible will out on i corruption So we see clearly that Paul did not teach he was going to heaven as soon as he died
To be with the Lord I'll be when people are raised from the grave at the second coming
These are 2 groups that Jesus describes the called and the chosen But in the parable given we see that the called do not enter heaven Let us read the verse
Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
Why do the called not enter heaven ? if we read the cl text it says because they did not have a wedding garment . Then they were thrown in outer darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth .
But why would God call some people YL send them to hell ? In fact they chose to not accept Jesus righteousness They preferef to believe they were good and did not need Gods help
But nobody can enter in heaven with their own righteousness Our own works are of no value to gain anything We work because we love .
The called are all christians who heard the Holy Spirit s call on their lives
The chosen are those who also has e accepted Jesus righteousness and have rejected any belief in any of men's goodness and righteousness
