One of the key concepts in prophecy that prove .1 Bible was indeed inspired by God Himself 2.That God has plan to end sin on the earth.3 That prophecy reveals the events of the end.4 And that most of these prophecies has come to past.5 which prove that we are living in closing time and we have a few more to go. 6 Gods long suffering and mercy to allow all this time to past to give every human being a chance for forgiveness and salvation. Is the 1 day for a year theory in prophecy.
Some of the brightest minds in Science,Theology,Masters of history held this view concerning the day for a year principle. Among the famous list are: John Wycliffe, John Knox, William Tyndale, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Ulrich Zwingli,Phillip Melanchthon, Sir Isaac Newton, Jan Huss, John Foxe, John Wesley, Jonathan Edwards, George Whitefield, Charles Finney, C. H. Spurgeon, Matthew Henry, Adam Clarke, Albert Barnes, E. B. Elliot, H. Grattan Guinness, and Bishop Thomas Newton.
Bible evidence of the truth behind the 1day=1year
1.Ten spies coming back with a bad report to Moses about the promised land after spying it out for 40 days:because of disbelief and rebellion they wondered 40 years in the wilderness before going to entering the promise land Numbers 14:33-34
2. Ezekiel is told to lie on his side 390 plus 40 days --- "a day for each year: Ezekiel 4:4-6
3.Luke 13:32 Christ said what he would do today and tomorrow but the third day he shall be perfected indicating his death,but did he died 3 days later? No it was 3 years later he was crucified.
457 BC The decree to rebuild Jerusalem, spoken of by the angel to Daniel, was given in 457 B.C. (see Daniel 9:25; Ezra 7:11, 12. Thus, the starting date for the 2300-day prophecy is fixed. A day equals a year in Bible prophecy (see Ezekiel 4:6; Numbers 14:34; Mark 1:15; Matthew 18:21, 22; Luke 13:1-7). The 2300 days of Daniel 8:14 are equal to 2300 literal years.
408 BC The rebuilding of Jerusalem was completed by 408 B.C., built "even in troublous times" (Daniel 9:25). Just as Daniel's prophecy stated, the Jews labored against much opposition to restore their beloved city (see Nehemiah chapters 4- 7).
27 AD The Saviour was baptized in 27 A.D., exactly 483 years after the commandment to restore Jerusalem. Messiah in Hebrew and Christ in Greek are the same as anointed in the English. The Messiah was anointed for His work as our Savior by the Holy Spirit at His baptism (see Matthew 3:16; Luke 3:21-23; Acts 10:38).
31 AD In the middle of the seventieth week, The Messiah brought an end to the sacrificial service by dying for the salvation of the world (see Daniel 9:26, 27). The Saviour spoke of His sacrificial death as occurring at a set or fixed time, indicating that He would die at the time foretold in Bible prophecy (see Matthew 26:18; Luke 12:56; 21:8; Romans 5:6; 1 Timothy 2:6; Galatians 4:4).
34 AD The stoning of Stephen, the first Christian martyr, marked the close of Israel's seventyweek (490 year) probation (see Daniel 9:24; Acts 7:54-60). After the stoning of Stephen the gospel was taken to the gentiles, and the Christian church was born. Judaism as a nation gives way to spiritual Israel, the church (see Romans 2:28, 29; Galatians 3:26-29).
508 AD The papal church gains ecclesiastical authority and usurps the priestly ministry of Messiah by setting itself up in a mediatory position between God and the people (see Daniel 8:9- 11; 1 Timothy 2:5, 6; Hebrews 4:15, 16; 7:24, 25; 8:1-5; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4; Mark 2:7). The darkness would begin to break after 1335 years, in 1843, as the truth of the sanctuary would begin to emerge through a worldwide Bible study revival (see Daniel 12:11-13; Revelation 10).
538 AD The papal church gains civil-political power and begins to persecute the saints of God (see Daniel 7:21, 25; 12:7; Revelation 12:6, 14; 13:5, 7). The political reign of the church would last for 1260 years, from 538 A.D. to 1798.
1798 AD The papal church loses its civil-political power over the masses, receiving the "deadly wound" foretold in prophecy (see Daniel 11:40; Revelation 13:3). The long, dark reign of papal authority was finally broken as Napoleon's general, Berthier, marched into Rome and took the pope captive. 1798 marks the beginning of "the time of the end" (see Daniel 12:4, 9).
1844 AD The glorious truth of Messiah's high priestly mediation in the heavenly sanctuary begins to be restored to the people through the study of Daniel's prophecies (see Daniel 8:14; 12:4). The study of Daniel's prophecies would be followed by a bitter disappointment, which in turn would be followed by a restoration of Biblical truth concerning the sanctuary and the mediation of the Messiah as our Savior (see Revelation chapters 10, 11).
