    Testimony of a Jewish Rabbi

    Again, in the year 1902, Rabbi Isidore Myer, of a large congregation of Jews in San Francisco, Cal., in announcing the day of atonement, said: “While crossing the threshold of time from one year to another, the Israelite is forcibly reminded of the creation and of the universal sovereignty of the Creator, and is called upon to celebrate, with blast of trumpet, the anniversary, so to speak, of the birth of time and of the coronation of the great King. He is also summoned by the voice of the same trumpet, or Shofar, to scrutinize retrospectively his action of the past year while he stands tremblingly before the all-seeing eye of Eternal Justice sitting on the throne of judgment.”GSAM 91.2

    As in the Jewish temple service the sanctuary was cleansed once every year, it must have been apparent to Daniel that this cleansing of the sanctuary at the end of the twenty-three hundred days must relate to something besides the yearly typical service. The Lord had already instructed his people that, when using symbols in prophecy, the time given should be counted “each day for a year.” 30Numbers 14:34; Ezekiel 4:6. So this period of twenty-three hundred days, as we have seen, comes down to the close of Christ’s work as high priest in the heavenly sanctuary—to the investigative judgment of those whose cases, through confession, have been brought into the heavenly sanctuary.GSAM 92.1
