2300

This is just a post where I am going to experimentally try to find some more depth to the 2300 evenings and mornings in Daniel chapter 8.

Dan 8:13  Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to the one who spoke, "For how long is the vision concerning the regular burnt offering, the transgression that makes desolate, and the giving over of the sanctuary and host to be trampled underfoot?"
Dan 8:14  And he said to me, "For 2,300 evenings and mornings. Then the sanctuary shall be restored to its rightful state." 
Dan 12:11  And from the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days.
Dan 12:12  Blessed is he who waits and arrives at the 1,335 days.

Now there is a connection here that involves 37, actually 370.
Here it is:-

1335 * 2 = 2670

2670 - 2300 = 370

(1335 days could be interpreted as 2670 evenings and mornings.)


Let's have a look at 370, then.


1. Noah was in the Ark for ... 370 days


2. The digit grouping for the second half of the second verse of Genesis :-
Gen 1:2  The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Total letter gematria:- 1369
Factors for 1369:- 1(star 1), 37(star 3), 1369
Digit grouping for 1369:- 370. Digit grouping result factors:- 1(star 1), 2, 5, 10, 37(star 3), 74, 185, 370
(See Note 1, below, for full data)
The idea of a new creation out of the chaos of the first part of verse 2 comes into view.


We are starting to see that this 370 evenings and mornings time period is connected with the transition to the"age to come". It is the number symbolism that is shining through.

Just how 1290 days fits into this I am not yet sure. Oh well. There is something here, though.


3. The gematria of "Christ" in the greek is 1480.
1480 = 370 * 4
4 is a number connected with the earth, the four winds, etc. which is mentioned three times in Daniel and, in Daniel, these four winds are all connected with a  change of earthly kingdoms. This time the change will be for the coming Kingdom of God and of His Christ. That will definitely be a change for the better!

    Dan 7:2, Daniel declared,1 “I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the great sea.
    Dan 8:8, Then the goat became exceedingly great, but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.
    Dan 11:4, And as soon as he has arisen, his kingdom shall be broken and divided toward the four winds of heaven, but not to his posterity, nor according to the authority with which he ruled, for his kingdom shall be plucked up and go to others besides these.

Might I suggest the reader has a look at this web page:-
http://www.fivedoves.com/revdrnatch/112th_Triangle.htm
and scrolls down to the ""In the beginning" - Jesus" section a little over a third of the page down.

Other 370's:-

1. It is the gematria of the new name given to Mishael in Daniel chapter 1:7:-
Dan 1:7  And the chief of the eunuchs gave them names: Daniel he called Belteshazzar, Hananiah he called Shadrach, Mishael he called Meshach, and Azariah he called Abednego.

2. Daniel 11:2
370 is the gematria of Persia.

3. Daniel 11:4
370 is the gematria of to rule. Look at the passage, it is a direct reference to what Alexander the great had ruled.
Dan 11:4  And when he shall stand up,H5975 his kingdomH4438 shall be broken,H7665 and shall be dividedH2673 toward the fourH702 windsH7307 of heaven;H8064 and notH3808 to his posterity,H319 norH3808 according to his dominionH4915 whichH834 he ruled:H4910 forH3588 his kingdomH4438 shall be plucked up,H5428 even for othersH312 besideH4480 H905 those.H428

משׁל
mâshal
maw-shal'
A primitive root; to rule: - (have, make to have) dominion, governor, X indeed, reign, (bear, cause to, have) rule (-ing, -r), have power.

Daniel 8:8 confirms this to be Alexander the great - the "four winds of heaven" in both verses is the give-away:-
Dan 8:8  Then the goat became exceedingly great, but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.
Also:-
Dan 8:21  And the goat is the king of Greece. And the great horn between his eyes is the first king.

1260,1290,1335 and 888 continued

1260,1290,1335 and 888

I have been thinking about this for sometime now, just pondering it all (see previous post).

Let's have a look at this verse from Isaiah 53, ESV translation:-


Isa 53:11  Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities.

Keil & delitsch render it thus in their commentary:-


"Because of the travail of His soul, He will see, and be refreshed; through His knowledge will He procure justice, my righteous servant, for the many, and will take their iniquities upon Himself." 

Both these translations capture the idea that it is by the Lord's knowledge that He procures justice for the many, "make many to be accounted righteous". It is "by His knowledge".

The numbers 1260, 1290 and 1335 have to do, I surmise, with the very nature of Jesus Himself, His knowledge. 
Let us not forget, either, that he has a new name, too.
Rev 3:12  The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.
So do these:-
Rev 2:17  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.'
For the present, though, we are looking at the name of JESUS, so let us press on to see what this name contains in relation to our three numbers.

..........................

1260


Rev 12:5  She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, Rev 12:6  and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days.
Rev 12:14  But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.
Rev 11:3  And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth." 
Rev 11:2  but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample the holy city for forty-two months. 
Rev 13:5  And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. 
Rev 13:6  It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven. 
Dan 7:25  He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.


It is common to lump 1260 together with the 42 months BUT 42 months (and time, and times, and half a time for that matter) are NOT a part of the name of JESUS (as far as I know).
What I read, so far, is this:-

1.   Days for the Church

2.   Months for the beast

3.   Time, times and half a time when the woman/saints and earthly powers/beast are mentioned together. For example, in Daniel:-
Dan 7:25  He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.
 Again we see  this in the Revelation:-
Rev 12:14  But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.
It's the same woman as in Revelation 12:5 (I think, anyway) except that she is now mentioned in connection with an earthly kingdom (the two wings of the great eagle) and subsequently the time parameter is defined in terms of "a time, and times, and half a time."

When the scripture is dealing solely with the beast, the time parameter changes again to "months":-
Rev 13:5  And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months.
Now that, to my mind, is one of the keys to really going forward in this area of scripture study. 


I will be adding more on these numbers to this post and/or future posts as more light dawns.

for some thoughts on 1335 and that other mysterious number, 2300.



...................................................................................................................................................
As I have mentioned elsewhere, there is no actual mention of 1260 days in the book of Daniel. Equally, there is no mention of 1290 or 1335 days in the revelation. Yet the name of JESUS combines all three, 1260 in the Revelation and 1290 and 1335 in Daniel.
