DANIEL 8:14 EXPLAINED IN DANIEL 9:24-27
VERSE 14: "Unto two thousand and three hundred days than shall the sanctuary be cleansed."
"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.
Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."
MATHEMATICAL SOLUTION OF DANIEL 8:14 IN 9:24-27
Using the year-day computation principle, literal time is converted to prophetic time when symbolism appears in the prophecy. Daniel 8:14 is a symbolic-prophetic time because animals are used to symbolize kingdoms.
Therefore, 1 day = 1 year; 2300 days = 2300 years.
See Numbers 14:34 and Ezekiel 4:6.
DANIEL 9: 21-27
Daniel prayed and was given the explanation of the vision in Daniel 9.
"Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.
And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.
At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision
And the understanding and the vision was true and the time appointed was long according to Daniel 10.
"In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was true, but the time appointed was long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision
Daniel 9 Verse 24:
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."
70 weeks x 7 days = 490 days/years
