Calculating Time Prophecies

 How  to  Calculate  Time  Prophecy

When completed this page will describe how Time Prophecies are calculated using the Bible principle of a year for a day.
For example:   Daniel 8: 14       2,300 Days
                    Revelation 9     150 years in Fifth Trumpet  - -  391 years in Sixth Trumpet
                    Revelation 11      1,260 years ( 538 AD to 1798 AD )

Ellen White says that 1844 was the last date in prophetic time.
I plainly stated at the Jackson camp meeting to these fanatical parties that they were doing the work of the adversary of souls; they were in darkness. They claimed to have great light that probation would close in October, 1884. I there stated in public that the Lord had been pleased to show me that there would be no definite time in the message given of God since 1844.--2SM 73 (1885).  {LDE 35.2}
Our position has been one of waiting and watching, with no time-proclamation to intervene between the close of the prophetic periods in 1844 and the time of our Lord's coming.-- 10MR 270 (1888).  {LDE 36.1}
The people will not have another message upon definite time. After this period of time [Rev. 10:4-6], reaching from 1842 to 1844, there can be no definite tracing of the prophetic time. The longest reckoning reaches to the autumn of 1844.--7BC 971 (1900).  {LDE 36.2}
