Hanukkah 2017 and Solving Daniel's 1290 Days

So the Rapture did not occur at any point from the Feast of Trumpets through the anticipated day of November 8, 2010. There were many scrambled attempts, more discoveries, but it came up empty with no end product. Frankly, it was time to throw in the the towel and do a complete overhaul, if not resignation. And many may be upset and discouraged. That’s where this website and book project lay just a few days ago. It was game over. Adios amigos.

However, a fellow brother pleaded that things pushed on through the perceived difficulties. Sandy Armstrong mentioned some of his new conclusions and referenced also to a posting made by “CJ” that said we were all off by a month. Really? But this prompted a reevaluation of some of the basic paradigms that had been assumed for a long time by many prophecy teachers. It seemed doubtful, but it may truly be the piece of the puzzle we have been searching for that fell on the floor and was kicked under the table.

It has long been taught that Daniel’s 70th Week consists of 2,520 days, that divided into two equal  parts of 1,260 days. No problem. But does the 70th Week end at the end of the second part of the 1,260 days? It seems to be the natural conclusion. But hang on there.

In the Book of Daniel there is no mention of 1,260 days, that only occurs in the Book of Revelation. If all one looked at was the Book of Daniel to draw conclusions, which is the proper step before jumping to a systematic theology, then the drawing of the 70th Week would look askew to the modern well accepted paradigm. Daniel 12 mentions a time, times, and half a time, but the day counts are listed as 1,290 and 1,335 days–not 1,260 days. The length of of the Great Tribulation is 1,290 days with an additional 45 days (day 1,335) that if reached will be a great blessing. So the proper understanding of Daniel would be as follows:



Therefore, the mid-point of the 70th Week would be shifted by 30 days if one follows only the Book of Daniel. Therefore, the period of 1,260 days as found in the Book of Revelation when Israel is preserved in exile, does begin at the point of the Abomination, but it does not terminate on the conclusion of the 70th Week. In fact there may be other separate periods of 1,260 days, such as with the two witnesses since that is indeed hard to pin down. However, the fact that 1,260 days ends 30 days before the ending of the 70th Week solves other riddles as well.

One riddle is when Christ speaks that the days must be cut short, yet how can one alter the clearly inspired day counts? If they are shortened it makes the Word null. But with day 1,260 from the Abomination resulting in the deliverance by Messiah the Prince so that all Israel is saved, He has in effect cut the days short of the Great Tribulation that are laid out as 1,290 days. The 30 days that remain are for judgment and purification to prepare for the official ending of the 70 Weeks and their stated purpose...



Daniel 12

1 “At that time Michael shall stand up,
     The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people;
      And there shall be a time of trouble,
      Such as never was since there was a nation,
      Even to that time.
      And at that time your people shall be delivered,
      Every one who is found written in the book.

       2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake,
      Some to everlasting life,
      Some to shame and everlasting contempt.

       3 Those who are wise shall shine
      Like the brightness of the firmament,
      And those who turn many to righteousness
      Like the stars forever and ever.

4 “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”

5 Then I, Daniel, looked; and there stood two others, one on this riverbank and the other on that riverbank.

6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, “How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders be?”

7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.

8 Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, “My lord, what shall be the end of these things?”

9 And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

10 Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

11 “And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.

12 Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.

13 “But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.”
