2300 days and the Godhead

As Adventists we know the investigative judgment began in 1844 with the cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary. In this article we are going to take a look at what else would have to happen starting in 1844. In Daniel 8:14 we have the famous line “For two thousand three hundred days; then the sanctuary shall be cleansed.” Again we know this prophecy ended in 1844 with the cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary. Lets take a look in Leviticus 16 to see if we can find any further information. Leviticus 16:30 says: For on that day the priest shall make atonement for you, to cleanse you, that you may be clean from all your sins before the LORD. On the day of atonement the sanctuary is to be cleansed but also the people are to be cleansed from all there sins. If we put this into 1844 terms, Jesus would begin cleansing his people from all there sins to prepare for His coming. A simple question then is how does Jesus cleanse His people from there sins? In Eph 5:25-27 we have the answer: Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. Jesus cleanses and sanctifies his people by his "Word" which according to John 17:17 is "Truth". "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth." Obviously without the truth Jesus would be unable to cleanse and sanctify His people of there sins.

In Daniel 8:12 we notice a problem though: he(Papacy) cast truth down to the ground. He did all this and prospered. During the Papal rule truth had been cast down and according to Daniel 12:7 the power of the holy people was completely scattered in 1798. In Acts chapter one and two we notice that the early church would receive power when Holy Spirit came upon them. Notice the criteria for this to happen though: acts 2:1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. The church was gathered together and all were with one accord or you could say there was unity in the church. Obviously by 1798 we would have the exact opposite of this which is true with the many protestant denominations sprouting up there could be no unity. The point to all of this is at the end of the 2300 year prophecy God had to gather His people and restore truth to bring unity to the church otherwise its an impossibility to cleanse and sanctify His people. Now if Ellen White says that Jesus could of returned in there day had the people been faithful how could this be possible if they were supposedly teaching a lie concerning the Godhead? Only the truth can sanctify so without the foundational truth of the Godhead it would of been a complete impossibility for the second coming of Jesus to happen in her day. Notice below the problem wasn't in there foundational truth but that the church didn't do the appointed work.
Had the church of Christ done her appointed work as the Lord ordained, the whole world would before this have been warned, and the Lord Jesus would have come to our earth in power and great glory. {Mar 19.1}

In closing at the end of the 2300 year prophecy in 1844 Truth would be restored.

God Bless!!!
Off Topic freeby: John 2:20 Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?” It also took 46 years from 1798-1844 for the restoration of Gods church. Just a simple faith booster in our timelines.
