    If you looking at the explanation of Matthew Henrys commentary about Numbers 3 verse40 51 a striking thing appeared. Verse 50 ,Of the firstborn of the children of Israel he took the money 1365 ,after the she shekel of the sanctuary Now if you read Heb 8 v 2 A minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord pitched and not man.If you took the 1365 and split it up, you get 1 for 1000 and 365 a year this 1000 year.In REV 20 the 1000 year is explained by John .Reading 2 Peter 3 v 8 do not let this one fact escape you beloved that one day is as thousand years and a thousand year as one day .So 1000 is THE DAY OFF THE LORD and John and Peter and Moses used the sacred scripture.
