“LIGHT” Symbol in Post Temple Judgment

The “Light” Symbol in the Daniel 8:14,26 “Morning” Phase of Temple Recovery

Thus the “fire of purification” upon the “temple” in the temple judgment running its “evening” phase course unto the “morning” phase of recovery for the final “Kingdom Message” leads to another “light” related symbology in prophecy which is the final meaning of it all in a divinely backed and guaranteed summary as stated here:

(Revelation 10:5-7) And the angel that I saw standing on the sea and on the earth raised his right hand to heaven, 6 and by the One who lives forever and ever, who created the heaven and the things in it and the earth and the things in it and the sea and the things in it, he swore: “There will be no delay any longer; 7 but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to blow his trumpet, the sacred secret of God according to the good news which he declared to his own slaves the prophets is indeed brought to a finish.”

Thus the purification that brings the temple “right condition” also brings the enlightenment symbol of the “morning” as all this reality the JW apostasy now conceals is “brought to light”:

(Daniel 8:13-14) And I got to hear a certain holy one speaking, and another holy one proceeded to say to the particular one who was speaking: “How long will the vision be of the constant [feature] and of the transgression causing desolation, to make both [the] holy place and [the] army things to trample on?” 14 So he said to me: “Until two thousand three hundred evenings [and] mornings; and [the] holy place will certainly be brought into its right condition.”

It is also the “light” from the “oil in reserve” of the five discreet virgins to help light the way for the Christ “Bridegroom” arrival by “wake up events” right “in the middle” of the “evening”:

(Matthew 25:6-7) Right in the middle of the night there arose a cry, ‘Here is the bridegroom! Be on your way out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those virgins rose and put their lamps in order

And the post-abyss condition of what coming out of that dark abyss of the temple judgment desolation means here is that it is freed “to the light” as well as the whole meaning is of prophetic enlightenment and divine release from the judgment desolation “evening” phase:

(Revelation 9:1-4) And the fifth angel blew his trumpet. And I saw a star that had fallen from heaven to the earth, and the key of the pit of the abyss was given him. 2 And he opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke ascended out of the pit as the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun was darkened, also the air, by the smoke of the pit. 3 And out of the smoke locusts came forth upon the earth; and authority was given them, the same authority as the scorpions of the earth have. 4 And they were told to harm no vegetation of the earth nor any green thing nor any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.

As shown in Hosea 6:1-3 as well:

(Hosea 6:1-3) “Come, you people, and do let us return to Jehovah, for he himself has torn in pieces but he will heal us. He kept striking, but he will bind us up. 2 He will make us alive after two days. On the third day he will make us get up, and we shall live before him. 3 And we will know, we will pursue to know Jehovah. Like dawn, his going forth is firmly established. And he will come in like a pouring rain to us; like a spring rain that saturates [the] earth.”

Thus, in a manner yet to be seen the “2300 evenings and mornings” must have a “three year” marking phase, or totality. It must have a three year signal meaning as a whole or as the “darkness” timing depending on whether Daniel 8:13-14 is a 3.15 year (1150 days) or 6.30 year (2300 days) timed prophecy. That “third day” is the third year of the deliverance and recovery symbology here:

(Isaiah 37:30-32) ‘And this will be the sign for you: There will be an eating this year of the growth from spilled kernels, and in the second year grain that shoots up of itself; but in the third year sow seed, you people, and reap, and plant vineyards and eat their fruitage. 31 And those who escape of the house of Judah, those who are left remaining, will certainly take root downward and produce fruitage upward. 32 For out of Jerusalem a remnant will go forth and those who escape out of Mount Zion. The very zeal of Jehovah of armies will do this.

Which is a “three” based “sign of Jonah” to eventually manifest from the timing of Daniel 8:13-14 as JWs are “tossed into the sea” of humanity and recovered for the light and final mission in those who will repent and those who shall over time:

(Matthew 12:38-40) Then as an answer to him some of the scribes and Pharisees said: “Teacher, we want to see a sign from you.” 39 In reply he said to them: “A wicked and adulterous generation keeps on seeking for a sign, but no sign will be given it except the sign of Jonah the prophet. 40 For just as Jonah was in the belly of the huge fish three days and three nights, so the Son of man will be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights. 

And so will Jehovah’s witnesses be a “three day” sign, “He will make us alive after two days. On the third day He will make us get up…” but as three years. And it is all related to Jesus Christ’s full arrival in power and the events which start to enlighten many as to the final global-indications leading to his arrival—of which, the “temple judgment of Jehovah’s witnesses” is the first “slap in the face” wake up call prophecy event.

Now that Jonah symbol of light from being evacuated from the “fish’s belly” and its darkness, is the same light and sign as being freed from the abyss. It is the same light of the “morning” of the temple judgment phasing, and the “light” of the approved “five discreet virgins” lamp ignition on “oil in reserve”. That is, the final light phase is based on the “original oil” for the recovery, but plenty more is also coming:

(Zechariah 4:1-3) And the angel who was speaking with me proceeded to come back and wake me up, like a man that is awakened from his sleep. 2 Then he said to me: “What are you seeing?” So I said: “I have seen, and, look! there is a lampstand, all of it of gold, with a bowl on top of it. And its seven lamps are upon it, even seven; and the lamps that are at the top of it have seven pipes. 3 And there are two olive trees alongside it, one on the right side of the bowl and one on its left side.”

Thus the “olive tree” is a source of continuous “oil” for those “seven” lampstands which means complete enlightenment comes with the temple recovery.

And that ” like a man that is awakened from his sleep” is the same wake up call for anointed Christians as in the “ten virgins” in this parallel symbol:

(Revelation 11:1) And a reed like a rod was given me as he said: “Get up! and measure the temple [sanctuary] of God and the altar and those worshiping in it. 

All those symbols of light and awakening are of the final enlightenment phase to come after the JW Org desolation ends that darkness as its darkness “evening” phase runs its full timed course as it climaxes upon Jehovah’s witnesses caught in that “evening” phase (and all anointed Christians since it is an anointed Christian “temple judgment” in reality); because most shall be asleep and clueless as to what is really going on. But, light is coming.

But we do not have to be clueless even now if we stay awake:

(1 Thessalonians 5:4-5) But you, brothers, you are not in darkness, so that that day should overtake you as it would thieves, 5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We belong neither to night nor to darkness.

The “2300 Evenings and Mornings” Meaning

(Daniel 8:26) “And the thing seen concerning the evening and the morning, which has been said, it is true. And you, for your part, keep secret the vision, because it is yet for many days.”

That “THE morning” of “light” is thus after that  “THE evening” symbology in its order and as recognizable temple judgment phases in that “THE morning” and “The evening”. But the “evening” phase (first) and the “morning” phase (last) is in this “2300 evenings and mornings” overall temple constant feature meaning because it relates to:

1. The temple judgment timing;

2. The temple judgment phasing, darkness to light;

3. The temple “constant feature” also brought into the “right condition” of truthful purity as judged and caused by God along with the temple sanctuary itself as in the state of the anointed Christian body still here on Earth being purified by “fire” and that for a “final enlightenment” purpose to aid the salvation of many;

As related to the polluted “temple” “holy place” and its “constant feature” in its “evening and morning” application, it pertains to:

1. The darkness the JW apostasy led the ministry into;

2. The bedarkened and bewildering circumstances of the final JW prophecy fail;

3. And the disapproved state of the anointed Christian ministry which are all contained in that “evening” phase as the effects of the apostasy and the spiritual darkness and circumstances it inspired;

4. That there will be a recovery to “light” to end the process of the temple judgment purpose.

And that is the “light” development that in time becomes the 1260 days final commissioned “Kingdom Proclamation” summary in its “final witness” form of the “second witnessing” of the “TWO witnesses” of Revelation 11 where Revelation 8-10 lead in time.

One thought on ““LIGHT” Symbol in Post Temple Judgment”

  1. Hello again KINGNORTH:

    I’ve been a bit preoccupied lately and have not had much chance to comment on your last couple of articles which I greatly appreciated. For the moment perhaps I can comment on these “2300 evenings and mornings” mentioned there in Daniel 8:13, 14, since I personally feel inclined to recognize that there might be even more to its symbolic significance than what you have mentioned so far. Why do I say this?

    When I personally consider ALL of the prophetic numbers found in the book of Daniel and endeavor to calculate them in a manner that begins to make some kind of sense to me when it comes to the actual fulfillment of these foretold spiritual deaths and rebirths of God’s nation and the manner in which they are connected with these national apostasies, I end up settling at least primarily on the notion of factoring in the “day for a year” formula found in accounts like Numbers 14:34 and Ezekiel 4:6 with ALL of them. Moreover I ultimately find myself feeling obliged to assign the very same starting point of 607 BCE to all of these numbers and their corresponding time calculations. Why is this?

    Likely the primary reason we might want to understand these numbers in such a way is because we already have a clear precedent in scriptural prophecy and history for implementing this “day for a year” formula into the time calculations for the “comings” of these foretold manifestations of legitimate theocratic power and authority to the earth. This would of course specifically be in connection with the foretold arrival of Jesus in the first century and the “weeks of years” calculation provided for it in the ninth Chapter of Daniel, even if this particular calculation did not have the starting point of 607 BCE. So what might all this have to do specifically with this foretold 2300 days?

    Well first of all the context of this account here in Daniel makes it clear that in stark contrast with the number of 1290 found in Chapter 12 and verse 11, this particular number is directly associated with yet another spiritual BIRTH of God’s kingdom as opposed to a death. (Da 8:13, 14) However this particular birth or “coming” of the theocratic nation appears to be distinguished from the final foretold Millennial Reign AS WELL AS the birth that occurred in the first century in at least two or three different ways. The first of these ways would be that unlike the calculation for the first century arrival, it is NOT assigned any explicit or obvious starting point.

    Clearly we were intended to perform some digging and prayerful research in at least most cases. (Pr 2:4) Moreover if we applied this number to either 607 or 537 BCE, (537-539 being the approximate time that this “word going forth to restore and rebuild Jerusalem” was initiated for this particular time calculation) (Da 9:25) neither starting point would bring us anywhere near the birth of the first century spiritual nation. Therefore this number clearly seems to have no connection to the fourth foretold birth of God’s kingdom, or otherwise the one that occurred in the early part of the first century. But what about the FINAL foretold birth of the kingdom, or the one also identified as the “Millennial Reign”? Could this be what these 2300 days are pointing to?

    Well the problem with this is the fact that this final “seventh” manifestation of full theocratic power and authority is clearly distinguished in Revelation with the number 1260 as opposed to 2300 or even 1290. (Re 12:6) (Da 12:11) (Not to mention the 1,335 found at Daniel 12:12) Moreover when we are subsequently prompted to actually double this number of 1,260 to 2,520 in order to complete what turns out to actually be a grand total of a foretold “SEVEN times” as opposed to a mere “3 ½ times” upon comparing verses like Revelation 12:6 to 12:14. Upon doing so we then begin to notice how similar all these numbers now are to the 2300 found in Daniel 8. We now in turn might be moved to recognize that ultimately ALL these smaller numbers should be doubled to actually arrive at what is truly being conveyed here. There was after all ultimately “seven” of these “times” (as opposed to merely 3 ½) that were foretold to occur in connection with these national apostasies and their corresponding spiritual sowings and harvests of God’s nation or kingdom. (Da 4:25)

    So if this particular theocratic birth associated with the “2300 days” cannot be identified either with the birth of the “kingdom of the son of his love” in the first century or the “harvest of the firstfruits” associated with the long anticipated Millennial Reign, the question would obviously be which “coming of the Christ” is actually being pointed to here? (Col 1:13) Perhaps more importantly, this seems to also raise the question of why this particular manifestation of the “kingdom of the son of his love” would be pinpointed in scriptural prophecy when clearly at least ONE of these “comings” would NOT? After all, if the coming of “Messiah the LEADER” in the first century (as opposed to simply the messiah which by contrast applies to ALL of the manifestations of theocratic authority and power on the earth) was fulfilled in connection with the “fourth” of these foretold “seven times,” (which in fact is the case), this means there would be a total of THREE additional “comings of the kingdom” or “harvests of the firstfruits” between the birth of Christianity in the first century and the long anticipated Millennial Reign. Not two.

    These are among the reasons I find myself very inclined to recognize this 2300 days as needing to be calculated from 607 BCE to somewhere around 1693. (Which is right about where you would end up upon simply adding 2300 to 607 BCE) But is there any other indication that the earth experienced yet another birth of God’s kingdom around that particular time period? Well at this point I would remind people of the following:

    The entire history of God’s nation (or more specifically that of the foretold 2520 years that it would suffer the indignity of foreign captivity and exile as part of its punishment for spiritual adultery) bears out a clear pattern of God always greatly blessing the foreign nation that began playing host to it; or at least doing so as long as it accorded his people great dignity and honor as opposed to treating them like oppressed slaves. (Ge 39:5) It so happens that this year of 1693 marks the exact time period in which the British Empire began distinguishing itself as the next world power, which I’m inclined to view as no coincidence.

    But even if it eventually proves to be the case that my suspicions are correct in connection with all of this, it still leaves the question of why might God be interested in pinpointing the exact year of this particular rebirth of theocratic authority on the earth and not the next or more specifically the sixth of the foretold “seven”?

    The only potential reason that comes to my mind would be the following: Perhaps it was due to the fact that the scriptures seem to indicate something rather unique when it comes to the fifth of the foretold “seven births” or baptisms (spiritual cleansings) of God’s nation. (1 Sa 2:5) (Jer 15:9) (2 Ki 5:14)

    When we examine the foretold fifth “trumpet blast” found in the book of Revelation which in turn we want to recognize as the fifth foretold angelic battle cry or call to arms over yet another spiritual defeat or “conquering” of God’s appointed shepherding class here on the earth, we find that this particular “sowing and harvest” of God’s nation seems to be distinguished with a significantly greater time span than the rest. (Re 9:1-12 11:7) (Nu 10:9) (Ho 5:8) (1 Cor 14:8)

    We can gather from 1 John 2:18 and Revelation 17:10 that the fifth foretold spiritual death of God’s nation was considered as officially completed sometime around 96-98 CE. We are also aware that the next manifestation of the Roman Empire lasted for many centuries, and of course the world powers associated with or otherwise playing host to God’s people NEVER fell, until they would once again become involved in spiritually adulterous relations with them. (Da 11:30-32) (Mt 24:15, 16)

    I can only speculate that perhaps the large span of time associated with this particular spiritual cleansing of God’s people prompted God to identify the exact year that his nation would finally experience the end of this foretold fifth spiritual death or “time.”

    As far as why these foretold “seven times” are also consistently represented as “3 ½ times,” I’m rather certain that at least the main reason would be that ultimately EVERYTHING about the ancient fleshly nation was a prophetic picture or drama for the spiritual one that would follow. (Ga 3:24) (He 8:5) In other words, the ancient fleshly nation experienced exactly 3 ½ of these foretold seven spiritual cleansings since the fourth spiritual death was never followed with a rebirth. (Col 2:14) The next birth occurred only in connection with the new SPIRITUAL manifestation of Israel, which of course is most often referred to as Christianity. This means that ultimately BOTH manifestations of God’s nation (both fleshy and spiritual) would end up experiencing exactly 3 ½ of these foretold “seven times.”

    Yes I’d have to insist this “seven times” prophecy has much more to do with these seven foretold baptisms (spiritual deaths and rebirths) of God’s nation than merely the total amount of time over which they would occur. (Namely the 2,520 year time span prophetically assigned to them)

    Nevertheless I’m rather certain that all of us should be very slow and cautious about being dogmatic on such things as long as we continue to be encumbered with the foretold “dullness of sensibilities” that the Apostle Paul indicated would plague even the spirit anointed to some extent until the “full number of the people of the nations would come in,” or otherwise the entire “body of the Christ” would be gathered. (Ro 11:25 12:4, 5) (Re 6:11)

    Anyway I would be very interested to continue getting any and all feedback on this topic from you or anyone else inclined to comment on it as I’m certain we could all potentially benefit from further discussion. Looking forward to adding further comments when I get a chance.

    Agape love;
    Jeff
