The 2520

Check out the post for more resources on the 2520.

The Curse of Moses

Leviticus 26:28 Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.

Leviticus 26:34 Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies’ land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her sabbaths.

7 x 360 (Jewish month 30days) = 2520

Daniel 9:11 Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.

Daniel 9:13 As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.

Ezeiel 4:6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year.

What is the 2520 Year Prophecy?

It is the longest time Prophecy in scripture.

Where is it and who found it?

By Miller who started his studies in Genesis and went systematically through scripture comparing verse to verse and making sure each word had its bearing. It was in this way he formalized his understanding of prophecy first was the 2520 because it was in Leviticus and then the 2300 years in Daniel, in addition to Islam and more. By 1833 he had formalized his message, when he had received his first invitation to preach. As noted above it is given to us in Leviticus.

There is word that it is represented in every book of the Bible. I have yet to search it out yet.

Does it affect the 2300 year prophecy?

No it does not in fact it does confirm and give added emphasis to the 2300 year prophecy and it becomes witness unto it. The same goes for the 1260, 1290 and 1335.

Why have we not heard more about it?

For Adventists it is a new (but old) and an old thing for the rest of the world, just type in 2520 year prophecy and see what you get. One thing I found was the Jehovah’s Witnesses because they were a division after 1844 from Millerittes that rejected the message of the Sanctuary they also teach the 2520. More information¬†here.

An interesting note, the 2520 was actually a new discovery and as Miller gave his presentations it shook the world for it pointed to the nearness of the Advent of Christ. Miller started studying the Bible from Genesis and found the 2520 before he found the 2300 year prophecy.

When & why was the 2520 forgotten in the SDA Church when it was a part of it in the beginning?

That is a good question and requires a in depth study to tell it all but a short answer goes something like this. There is not an exact date per-say but it was more of a process of abandonment. As they (Millerite/ SDA movement) struggled with various issues one of them was the use of the then 1850 Chart which was a repeat of the 1843 Chart but modified to include the sanctuary message along with the other information from the 1843 Chart. Both of these Charts have the 2520 on it and it was used by all the Millerite preachers of that time the only thing that was changed was 1843 to 1844. The process started back in the late 1890’s. From 1903 to about 1907 Sister White issued a series of warnings that we have no new message…. Meaning the message from 1840-44 was to be preached which included the 2520, Daily, Islam and so on. There was a controversy brewing in Adventism during that time around 1908 to 1910 she it seems was shown by our Heavenly Father that they had not moved into the message the way they were supposed to (Righteousness by Faith and 1840-4 msg) so it was then more important to have unity in the Church then to bring separation. Then after the passing of Sister White it was pretty much on its way by the time most of those who had been originally involved with the message had passed away it was no longer being preached though some still kept to it. Sister White tells us that we have no new message. Here is one of those many quotes:

We have, as had John, a message to bear of the things which we have seen and heard. God is not giving us a new message. We are to proclaim the message that in 1843 and 1844 brought us out of the other churches. We need the Holy Spirit to kindle in our hearts the zeal and earnestness that were then seen among God’s people. I thank the Lord that there are still living a few who can remember those days, and who know whereof they speak. {RH, January 19, 1905 par. 22}

What is the importance for us now?

Revelation 10:4 shows that the 7 thunders were sealed up and to be unsealed (Revelation 22:10) just before the close of probation. “The special light given to John which was expressed in the seven thunders was a delineation of events which would transpire under the first and second angels’ messages.” {7BC 971.4} These seven thunders are the 7 events present in not only the Millerite movement but in every reform movement in the Bible. The fact that we are understanding them (or rediscovering our history as a movement) now, shows that we are just before the close of probation (Revelation 22:11). For John is told in Revelation 22:10 “And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.” The only passage sealed in Revelation is the sealing of the 7 thunders in Revelation 10. The 7 thunders are the waymarks in every great Reform Movement.

  1. This is terrific stuff and you have a wonderful website!

  2. can you elaborate more on the seventh thunders and its relationship to the 2520?

  3. In regards to the seven thunders, read the Sister White Bible Commentary on Revelation 10. You will find that the Millerittes were given a message related to time. Daniel mentions in Daniel 9:11 “Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that [is] written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.” The 2520 was the curse in Leviticus 26. It is one of the time periods that Miller was given the commencement for. The 2520 therefore was part of the increase of knowledge after the dark ages that lead Miller to proclaim the First Angels Message through Daniel 8:14.

    Added bonus:

    Did William Miller find both 2520s?

    It could not be revoked, notwithstanding their repentance and partial reformation. Jeremiah xv.4, – “And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh, the son of Hezekiah, king of Judah, for that which he did in Jerusalem,” – tells us of the same thing, that Judah as well as Israel must be made captives. Israel began to be carried away in the days of Hoshea, 722 B. C., and from that time to 1798 after Christ, is exactly 2520 years, or the seven prophetic years. How remarkable, that when the seven years ended, God began to deliver his church from her bondage, which for ages had been made subject to the kings of the earth. In 1798 the church came out of the wilderness, and began to be delivered from her captivity. But the completion of her slavery to the kingdoms of the earth, is reserved for another period. Beginning B. C., 677 years, seven prophetic years, or 2520 common years, would end in A. D. 1843. Therefore, beginning at the captivity of Manasseh and the final dispersion of the ten tribes of Israel, where God has fixed the time for the dispersion of the people of God and the scattering of the holy people, until the year 1843, will be the end of the seven years, when the acceptable year of the LORD will commence; and, in my humble opinion, the children of God will be delivered from all the evils enumerated by Moses in Leviticus xxvi., and Jeremiah xv.; from war or the sword, from pestilence and famine, from captivity and spoil, from death and corruption; and all will be comforted, and all tears be wiped from off all faces; sighs and sorrows shall cease forever, and there shall be no more curse, for the throne of the Lamb shall be there, and he shall dwell with them, and be their God, and they shall be his people. This will take place in the acceptable year of the Lord, the antitypical year of release. {1842 A Lecture on the Typical Sabbaths and Great Jubilee}

  4. The seven thunders finds its history embedded between the terminations of the first and second 2520 prophecies. It is in this period between 1798 and 1844 that God raises up his denominated people with a covenant to share the last message of mercy to the world. The 46 years of raising His spiritual temple is the message meeting its fulfillment found in Rev 10

  5. My concern is that you are joining the carrying away into Babylon unto the 2300 day prophecy. The time for counting didn’t begin with the reign of Manasseh but with the decrees of Cyrus, Darius and Artaxerxes. The return of the Jews to set up a country and government makes perfect sense. Read Ezra 4: 4-6; 6: 14; Daniel 9: 25. There is really no need for this 2520. The extra years have little significance for what happened during the 2300.

  6. Pat don’t be concerned. The 2520 and the 2300 day prophecy are different one does not replace the other just as the 70 weeks does not replace the 2300. The 2520 represents a different line of prophecy with different implications, especially for the poeple of God. The 2520 is actually the fisrt prophecy given to William Miller. It represents the time in which God raised the SDA church. The 2300 days really is representing the move of Jesus into judgement and not how and when He denominated His people. For more information on this begin to study the scattering and gathering in the Bible, in addition choosing Israel again.

    Uncovering these truths is also a fulfillment of prophecy. Rev 10:4 and 22:10. Unsealing truths are the way God tests Hid people. Like Rev 10:8 in eating the little book.

    Take time to check out the 1843 and 1850 chart and the prophecies concerning them in the last post Our First Work.

  7. Interesting stuff. It is amazing, for I belong to a ministry called: Loud Cry Team SDA Ministries. Continue in Jesus.
