Jerusalem 1917-1335
The Sanctuary is Cleansed


As birds flying so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver [it; and] passing over he will preserve it. Is. 31:5

Blessed [is] he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. Dan. 12:12

Spurgeon wrote that Horae (1862) was the standard commentary on the book of Revelation. In it, E.B. Elliot revealed that the Kings of the East was commonly understood to signify that when the Turkish empire ended the Jews would return to their home. (click on Reference)

Therefore, when Turkey began to collapse in the late 19th century, the eyes of England turned to Jerusalem with expectancy. This anticipation was heightened when the first world Zionist Congress met in Switzerland in 1895. For the first time, there was tangible proof that this prophecy was about to be fulfilled.

Grattan Guiness - Approaching End of the Age
Predicited Fall of Jerusalem based on Bible Chronology
coins4 The Victorians were very knowledgeable about bible prophecy and Grattan Guiness was their most prominent expositor. His remarkable Approaching End of the Age (1880) revolutionized bible chronology with the discovery of the soli-lunar cycle. He predicted that Jerusalem would be freed from Gentile rule on the 1335 lunar or 1917.

Miraculously, the year General Allenby led the British troops into Jerusalem, the coins in circulation bore the two dates 1917 and 1335 (in Arabic)! Allenby fully appreciated this prophetic milestone because as a boy his mother had read to him from Approaching End of the Age.

The Cleansing of Jerusalem (The Sanctuary)
A Double Witness Doubled
Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. Daniel 8:14

We have seen how the 2520 lunar and the 2300 solar co-terminated in 1844. In 1917, the 2300 lunar and the 2520 solar co-terminated. Thus the two longest prophetic time periods in the bible inscribe Daniel's "Cleansing of the Sanctuary". A remarkable double witness DOUBLED.

  1. 2520 Lunar - 603 BC to 1844
  2. 2300 Solar - 457 BC to 1844
  3. 2520 Solar - 603 BC to 1917
  4. 2300 Lunar - 312 BC to 1917

The 2300 solar began with Daniel's seventy weeks at the decree to rebuild Jerusalem (Ezra). The 2300 lunar began at 312 BC from the era of the Selucidae which dynasty proceeded the Eastern Little Horn. See Approaching End of the Age.
