How may one know that this does not refer to the earthly sanctuary ?

Answer

"He said unto me, Understand, 0 son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision." Verse 17.
NOTE - The prophetic period Of 2300, days (years) extends to AD. 1844, while the divinely appointed
services of the earthly sanctuary ceased at the cross (Dan. 9:27; Matt. 27:50,51), and the sanctuary itself
was destroyed in AD. 70, when Titus captured Jerusalem. For explanation of the period here mentioned,
see the preceding reading.
