17. What prophetic period, therefore, extends to the deliverance of God's people from the captivity in modern Babylon, and the restoration to them of the mediation of Christ?


"And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed."
Verse 14.
NOTE-The earthly sanctuary was a type of the heavenly sanctuary (Heb. 9:23,24; Lev.
16:29,30,33) ; the cleansing of the earthly sanctuary was typical of the cleansing in the heavenly sanctuary;
and this cleansing of the sanctuary accomplished on the great day of atonement is the closing work of
Christ in His mediation for sin. And the commencement of the cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary marks
the beginning of a new era in the experience of the people of God on earth; namely, the deliverance from
the power of modern Babylon, the restoration to them of the knowledge of the mediation of Christ for them
in the heavenly sanctuary, and a cleansing from sin in preparation for the second advent of Christ. The
cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary involves the investigative judgment, which will be followed by the
plagues, and Christ's coming. This period, therefore, determines the time of restoration and of judgment.
