**SYNOPSIS OF THE THEORY AND CALCULATIONS
**

Daniel speaks prominently of 2300 days.
He also has four numbers, namely, 1260, 1290, 1335 days, and
70 weeks (equal to 490 days).

Each of these days Mr. Miller considers
a year: and it is one of his cardinal propositions that in prophecy
this method of computations must always be regarded. Accordingly,
the 2300 days aforesaid are reckoned as so many years, and are
declared to commence with the going forth of the commandment to
rebuild Jerusalem, and to extend tot he resurrection and end of
the world in A.D. 1843; and therefore they are supposed to embrace
all the other numbers in the Book of Daniel. The subjoined are
the five principal calculations:

From the date of the commandment to rebuild Jerusalem, B.C. 457, to the crucifixion of Christ, 70 weeks, or 490 years | 490 |

From the crucifixion of Christ to taking away the daily abomination, which is supposed to signify Paganism | 475 |

From taking away of Pagan rites to setting up the abomination of desolation, or Papal Civil Rule | 30 |

From setting up of the Papal abomination to the end thereof | 1260 |

From taking away the Papal Civil Rule to the first resurrection and the End of the World in 1843 | 45 |

These being added present the sum of the years | 2300 |

From the full term of the vision as above exemplified | 2300 |

Subtract 70 weeks of years to the crucifixion of Christ | 490 |

1810 | |

Add to this the term of our Saviour's life | 33 |

End of the world in | 1843 |

From the crucifixion to taking away the daily abomination, the second Item of the first calculation | 475 |

Add our Saviour's age, 33, and Daniel's number, 1335 | 1368 |

End of the world in | 1843 |

From the full term of the vision as above exemplified | 2300 |

Subtract the date of the commandment to rebuild Jerusalem (B.C.) | 447 |

End of the world in | 1843 |

In Leviticus XXVI, 23-24, the Lord speaks of punishing the house of Israel "yet seven times for their sins." Seven times (or years) - each day reckoned as a year - 360 multiplied by 7 | 2520 |

Subtract the date of the first captivity in Babylon, at which time it is assumed this punishment commenced (B.C.) | 677 |

End of the world in | 1843 |

Behold how clearly it is shown by four
methods of calculation that the world is doomed to destruction
in Anno Domini 1843! The calculation and results will surely
be undeniable * if* days in prophecy are always to
be computed as years, and
