DANIEL's 1290 and 1335 Days Possibility! (Created Mar 31, 2013).
HOW THE DAYS OF DANIEL CAN FIT WITHIN THE JEWISH FESTIVALS.
The Daniel 12:11-12 duel prophetic revelation (1290 & 1335 days) fits perfectly between the God appointed Hebrew Feasts from Rosh HaShanah on September 24, 2014 through First Fruits on April 24, 2018 and Shavuot-Pentecost on May 21, 2018; seventy (70) years after the birth of Israel on May 14, 1948.
The angel said, "Go Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed UNTIL the time of the end" Dan 12:9.
Concerning the time of the end, Jesus said, "Therefore when you see the 'Abomination of Desolation', spoken by the Prophet Daniel . . ." Matt 24:15.
The KEY to Jesus' words is that this event could NOT have been completed during the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 AD! BECAUSE, even the holocaust of WWII was worse . . . Yet, consider what Jesus added about that time of the end:
"For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, nor ever shall be" Matt 24:21.
The wars of the 20th Century have been many times worse than the event of the 1st Century. Jesus continued:
"And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened" Matt 24:22.
All of humanity has not even come close to being obliterated throughout history.Only in our time (the 20th Century) was that a real possibility! So, the "Abomination of Desolation"is still in our future, because it is linked to the virtual destruction of humankind, and only saved by the intervention of Jesus Christ.
"From the time that... the Abomination of Desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days" Dan 12:11.
1290 Days? Since the prophecy is Hebraic, the 1290 days are certainly related to the Hebrew Lunar Calendar. The Hebrew Lunar Calendar has specific divinely appointed celebrations related to the signs of the sun and the moon.
"The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD" Joel 2:31.
Turning the "moon into blood" is an event called a Blood Moon, when the earth comes between the sun and moon causing a dark red cast over the moon. Such calendar events as a sequence of four total Blood Moons eclipses have only happened twice in the last 65 years. The first event was during the birth of the nation of Israel on May 14, 1948. The second event was during the unification of the city of Jerusalem on June 7, 1967.
These two appointed sets of four Blood Moon feasts sequences were very significant concerning the ancient nation of Israel, and the world... for such an event had not happened previously for over 450 years (in 1492)!
BUT NOW, another total four Blood Red Moon eclipse sequence, a tetrad, is coming: in 2014 and 2015 there will be four (4) total Lunar Eclipses, all happening during Hebrew Feast celebrations. On April 15, 2014 (Passover/Unleavened Bread), October 8, 2014 (Feast of Tabernacles), April 4, 2015 (Passover/Unleavened Bread), and September 28, 2015 (Feast of Tabernacles).
In addition, on March 20, 2015, near the beginning of the religious Hebrew Lunar Calendar there will be a total eclipse of the sun, "i.e... turned into darkness".
Also, September 13, 2015 is the last day of the Hebrew Lunar Calendar Sabbatical year, when financial disaster often occur in history (1987, 1994, 2001, 2008...).
But where do the 1290 days fit in? Lets start counting from the beginning of the secular Hebrew Lunar Calendar, the Jewish New Year's day, called Rosh Hashanah, beginning in the evening of September 24, 2014 . . . and counting to the start of First Fruits, on the eve of April 6, 2018, end of Unleavened Bread.
2014 - 98 days, 2015 - 365 days, 2016 - 366 days, 2017 - 365, days, and 2018 - 96 days, FOR A TOTAL OF 1290 days!
In addition, Dan 12:12 states, "Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days."
Again counting from the start of First Fruits, the eve of April 6, 2018 to the end of Shavuot/Pentecost, the eve of May 21, 2018, is 45 days . . . or, 1335 days, from the start of Rosh Hashanah, beginning in the evening of September 24, 2014! (1290 + 45).
Amazingly, May 21, 2018 is one week more than 70 years since the birth of the nation of Israel! (See Jer 29:10, Dan 9:2, and Zech 1:12.) Plus, counting from Yom Kippur, the eve of October 3, 2014, to the 1st of Nissan, the eve of March 16, 2018, there are 1260 days (Rev 11:3 & 12:6); and also, approximately 42 Gregorian months/43 Lunar months (Rev 11:2 & 13:5).
Jesus said, "And there will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity" Luke 21:25a.
"...and they will see the Son of Man (Jesus Himself) coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory" Matt 24:30b.
Jesus warned, "What I say to you, I say to all: Watch!" Mark 13:37.
