David Gates – A further study on the sermon “Even At The Doors”

Pastor Gates has never set a time for the return of our Lord, nor would he do that. Pastor Findley and others appears to assume that Pastor Gates takes the time prophecy of 1260 days, of prophetic years, beginning in 538 AD ending in 1798 AD, and transfers it wholesale to another time and event. Volume one of the Adventist Bible Commentary, page 1017, points out that there are many prophecies in Scripture that have a dual application. To a careful Bible expositor there is a prophetic template given in the very first chapter of the Great Controversy which says the following: “The prophecy which he (Jesus) uttered was twofold in its meaning: while foreshadowing the destruction of Jerusalem, it prefigured also the terrors of the last great day. ” GC 25c More on this study here: https://goo.gl/NcZYSm
