1260, 1290 1335 days of Daniel

Recommended Posts

1260, 1290, 1335 Days of Daniel.

What do these mystic numbers mean? All of these number of days are calculated from the setting up of the Abomination of Desolation at the Midpoint of the 7oth week, at which time the Great Tribulation also begins. These count of days are the God-ordained time limit for the desolation and desecration that the Antichrist will inflict on the Temple and God’s people.

The first ‘number’ is 1260 days, and from Revelation we see that this is equivalent to 42 months and 3 ½ years.

      “Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she has a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days (1260 days)”….Rev 12:6

       “But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she will be nourished for a time and times and half a time (3 ½ years)…Rev 12:14”

Since two different ways of expressing that period are given, they must be equivalent. We also see the same in Daniel…….where the period of the Antichrists authority is the same.

      “They (the saints) will be given into his hand for a time, times and half a time. (3 ½ years)”…Dan 7:25

       “There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months (42 months) was given to him”…..Rev 13:5

So the bible shows three ways that this period is designated……1260 days, 3 ½ years, forty two months…..and they are all equivalent to the reign of the Antichrist. This now gives us a fixed point from which we can surmise what all the other mysterious days may involve. (the time from the midpoint of the 70th week to the end of the reign of the Antichrist)

Could Daniels’ days of 1260, 1290, and 1335 be linked to the fulfillment of the Feasts of the Lord?

Christ fulfilled the four spring feasts in HIS FIRST COMING. They are Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits and Pentecost.  Scholars have noted that they were fulfilled precisely and to the day.

So we can say with a certain level of confidence that Christ will fulfill the Fall Feasts at His second coming…….precisely and to the day. They are Feast of Trumpets, Feast of Atonement,  Feast of Tabernacles.

1260 days……Starting at the midpoint, the Antichrist is given authority for 3 ½ years….42 months…time, times and half a time. These are all equivalent to 1260 days. The Antichrists reign ends when Jesus is present upon the earth., which occurs at the end of the 7oth week. There can only be one King of the Earth.

1290 days……

“ From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1290 days”  ……Daniel 12:11

This date ( related to 1290 days ) is 30 days after the physical second coming, which occurs on Yom Kippur, (Day of Atonement), Tishri 10 (day 1260). The biblical date for 1290 days will be the date Cheshvan 10 on the biblical calendar. Now, historically, this is the day that Noah and his family entered the ark. Every Ark in the bible is symbolic of Jesus.

Could the Sheep and  Goat  Judgment be the event foretold by the mysterious 1290 days?......

              “ When  the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left……” Math 25:31-33

The unrighteous survivors of the 70th week…..the goats….. are  severely judged and thrown into the lake of fire along with the Antichrist and the False Prophet. Jesus removes all the wicked from the earth. It will be the official last day of the rebellion that started with the setting up of the Abomination of Desolation.

The righteous survivors of the 70th week will take shelter in King Jesus, the Ark. It’s a perfect fulfillment of Cheshvan 10. In the days of Noah, the wicked and righteous were separated when God closed the door of the Ark.

1335 days……

            “ How blessed is he who keeps waiting and attains to the 1,335 days…”  Dan 12:12

Hanukkah is the feast that celebrates the rededication of the temple. It was desecrated by the first Abomination of Desolation set up by  Antiochus Epiphanes in the second century BC.

Could the 1335th day be another rededication of the Temple, on Hanukkah, which is rebuilt by Jesus after He returns?....If this is correct then Cheshvan 23 is the day when the polluted stones  (the Abomination )were removed from the Temple in the 2nd century BC.  It is highly likely that the upcoming event in the 21st century will mirror this ancient cleansing of the temple.

If this topic is about determining the return of Jesus through the Jewish feasts and holidays I'd be of the opinion it's mere speculation, a thought experiment, food for wandering minds.

I'd also be of the opinions:

It's looking to the past.

The old ways are done.

All that was fulfilled by Jesus.

Unknown day and hour of Jesus' return.

Etc, etc, etc....

No matter what our opinions and our best guesses, God has his timing.  He has his appointed times and they are not our times unless we learn his ways.  Fortunately he has laid out to us his appointed times.  He may have not told us the years but he did tells us the seasons.  No matter what the RCC and the daughters of the RCC will tell you Christ did not die on Easter.  We can learn from his appointed times even if they cannot be followed because of a lack of physical temple and priests for service.

1290 days……

“ From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1290 days”  ……Daniel 12:11

This date ( related to 1290 days ) is 30 days after the physical second coming, which occurs on Yom Kippur, (Day of Atonement), Tishri 10 (day 1260). The biblical date for 1290 days will be the date Cheshvan 10 on the biblical calendar. Now, historically, this is the day that Noah and his family entered the ark. Every Ark in the bible is symbolic of Jesus.

 

I agree with the equivalency of those expressions of time being 1260 days.

The way I approach Daniel 12 is that it speaks primarily of 1260 days of global distress.  It will affect everyone on the planet, albeit in different ways.

  • And there will be a time of distress such as never occurred since there was a nation until that time.  Daniel 12:1b

Those 1260 days coincide with the man of sin's 42 month war against the saints.  In addition, those deceived by the signs and wonders he performs will be distressed by the plagues during those 1260 days.  So, the kind of distress a person experiences will depend on which kingdom they belong to.  The important thing to remember is that the context of Daniel 12 is the time of great distress so the time frames are given with respect to that.

  • From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days.  Daniel 12:11

In order to make sense of this time duration, the question you have to answer is "until what?"  From the AoD being set up, there will be 1290 day until what exactly?  The context suggests that the answer is "until the end of the 1260 days of distress" since that's what Daniel 12 is about.  If that's the case, you have the AoD being set up, followed by 30 days, followed by the 1260 days of distress.  The 30 days before the 1260 days is a grace period of sorts when people are deciding whether or not to worship the man of sin and get his mark.

  • How blessed is he who keeps waiting and attains to the 1,335 days!  Daniel 12:12

Then there are 45 days after the 1260 days of great distress.  The 1260 days of distress is brought to an end with the shattering of the power of the holy people which I interpret to be the death of the two witnesses.  When they die, the effects of the plagues subside and the armies of the world gather for Armageddon.

So, the breakdown I see is 30 -- 1260 -- 45.  Whether that coincides with any feasts or not, I don't know.  That just how I read Daniel 12.  God will work out any details of matching it up to feasts if such is to be the case.

This may be a stupid question but we are assuming these time periods are all in the 2nd half? No overlap?

Daniel heard one saint ask another saint how long the temple would be desolate. He answered 2,300 days (Daniel 8:13-14). The saints are given into the antichrist’s hand for 1,260 days (3½ years), but the desolation continues 1,040 days past that. This setting up of the image (the abomination of desolation) also starts the clock ticking for the 2,300 days (Daniel 8:14) that the temple will be desolate. That overruns the 3½-year (1,260- day) Great Tribulation by 1,040 days.

I copied and pasted this from Kent Hovind's book.

From what I understand of Daniel 8, "days" is an interpretation.  The NASB has it as:

  • He said to me, “For 2,300 evenings mornings; then the holy place will be properly restored.”

which looks to be an accurate rendering.  Since the chapter talks about the daily sacrifice (one in the morning and one in the evening) it can easily be understood as 2300 sacrifices which is actually 1150 days.

בֹּקֶר bôqer, bo'-ker - properly, dawn (as the break of day); generally, morning:

It's the same Hebrew word rendered "and the morning" in creation. A different word is used for "And the evening" in Gen 1:5 etc. When the phrase "and the evening and the morning" is used it means one day. The Jews count their days starting in the evening. Anyway, that's how I see it.

Which raises the question of why wasn't the word for "days" used if the meaning being conveyed was in fact days?
