The Days of Daniel 12

When will the great tribulation begin?   This is a companion study to last week’s article explaining the Daily Sacrifice and its end time pre-tribulation significance in detail.    Will a Daily Sacrifice Begin Soon?

 

Prophecy News Update 

In Israel the situation is rapidly worsening for prime minister Netanyahu.  The police have recommended that he be charged with corruption offenses in two cases and three other cases are under investigation which may ultimately include him.  

The number of Netanyahu corruption investigations is reaching critical mass as  former Communications Ministry director-general Shlomo Filber signs state’s evidence plea bargain and begins testimony expected to incriminate the PM.  Political parties begin gearing up for elections.   See our February Prophecy News page for much more on the situation. 

On Tuesday Palestinian President Abbas not only agreed to attend an international peace conference but actually called for one.  The recent Abbas criticism of US President Trump and the call for an international peace conference is propaganda for the Palestinian public to ease the way for them to accept a difficult peace deal as being made with international especially Arab state consensus. 

Israel, the Palestinians, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the Arab States as well as representatives from the US, EU, UN, Jordan and probably Russia are expected to attend the conference and flesh out a plan produced by US president Trump during talks over the past year.

President Trump will present his plan to Netanyahu at their March 5 meeting and Bibi will then have to get it through his fractious far right extremist cabinet.  All of these issues are snowballing on Netanyahu and an election call is certainly possible. 

Netanyahu is also planning a multi front war and hostilities could break out at any time from March through this summer, to then be followed by an international peace conference and a peace deal – which is possible as soon as this year – as per 1 Thessalonians 5:3.   Israeli forces ready for war.  Israeli military preparations for the coming war have been ongoing for at least two years, some details here

I have been warning of this multi front war which would change regional realities towards the 1 Thess 5:3 peace deal for the past ten years only to be called a false teacher by the various COG entities, now the conflict is finally approaching. 

The only questions now are how long this conflict and peace deal will take to work out, and exactly when the miracle working man of sin will be set up in the Vatican.

IF the starting date for the 2300 day [year] prophecy count is correct, the great tribulation will begin at the end of 2018.  See our article explaining the 2300 Day Prophecy for a full explanation.  105: The 2300 Day Prophecy Dates the Coming of Christ

Be very careful here,  I wrote that “IF the starting date of the 2300 day [year] Prophecy count is correct,” because the history is very difficult and an error in the exact starting date of the count is possible.  One thing is certain; we are extremely close and the tribulation could begin near the end of 2018 or soon after that. 

Please remember that this work is about much more than the tribulation.  This work is about the coming of Christ and the resurrection of God’s faithful, about preparing the bride! 

The tribulation is only a signpost revealing the imminency of Christ’s coming and the redemption of the faithful (Luke 21:28).  See “The Immediate Future in Prophecy”  and also “An Outline of Events for the Next Few Years“.

 

Daniel 12

Daniel 12 speaks of three periods of days just before Christ comes.  First mentioned is the duration of the great tribulation itself.

Daniel 12:5, then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on the other side of the bank of the river.  12:6 And the one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, how long shall it be to the end of these wonders?

12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by him that lives for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and a half. . .

We see here, the same period of times that is mentioned in Revelation 12.  These are the “Times of the Gentiles” spoken of by Christ (Luk 21:24, Rev 11:2) .

The word “time” can be shown to be a year [a prophetic year is 360 days which is consistent with the cycles at creation], the plural times would be 2 years [720 days] and half a time is half a year [180 days].

Time, times, and half a time therefore represents three 3 ½ years, or 42 thirty day months, or 1,260 days.

It will take 1,260 days to scatter the power of the holy people.

. . . And when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

Here we are specifically told that the tribulation period will last a total of 1,260 days, which is consistent with the 42 thirty day months of Revelation 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

Daniel 12:7  also tells us that the scattering of the power of the people [the tribulation] will be a progressive ongoing process lasting for 1,260 days, rather than a one massive nuclear attack. 

Daniel then asks

Daniel 12:8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?

12:9 And he answered and said, go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

What was thought and written by anyone sixty or even thirty years ago simply cannot be correct, because the book of Daniel and the biblical prophecies for the latter days were sealed and closed to human understanding until today.  It is because most of today’s spiritual Ekklesia rejects the promised latter day revealing of spiritual knowledge that they will be rejected by Christ and fall into great tribulation (Hos 4:6, Mat 3:14-22).

The next question is; what about the 1290 and the 1335 days.  

Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days [1,290].

Here we are told that the final abomination will be set up at the same time that the Daily Sacrifice is removed, and that this abomination would last for 1290 to 1335 days before this abomination would be destroyed by Christ coming and ending the tribulation.  

Since we know that Prince Titus destroyed the physical temple and the Daily was stopped in c 70 A.D., Daniel 12:11 begs the question:  Was the man of sin set up in 70 A.D.  The answer to that is that the temple was burned and NO abomination of any kind was set up.

Daniel 9 tells us that the temple would be destroyed. which was fulfilled  by Prince Titus in c 70 A.D., and tells us that the temple would remain desolate and the sacrifice stopped until Messiah came to build the Ezekiel Temple.  

Using the day as a year method, counting forward 1290 years from 70 A.D. when the physical Daily was stopped by the Roman Prince Titus, we reach 1360 A.D., or 1335 days from 70 A.D. we reach 1405 A.D. Neither of which dates has any end time significance. Obviously this must mean literal days in the period just before the coming of Christ. 

What then, is the Daily which is to be stopped when the abomination [miracle working man of sin] is set up doing miracles?  

Clearly in this passage of Daniel 12:11 the term daily is referring to the restraints (2 Thess 2:7)  placed on Satan until the appointed time by the daily spiritual intersession of our spiritual High Priest Jesus Christ!  

Where do the scriptures speak of the daily spiritual intercession of the spiritual High Priest Jesus Christ ending?   The intercession of the spiritual High Priest for his people will end when Jesus Christ rejects today’s Laodicean Ekklesia.  

Revelation 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth [reject us from the body of Christ, reject us from being God’s people, reject us into the terrible furnace of correction of the final 42 month tribulation] .   See the message of Jesus Christ to Laodicea

This is a companion study to last week’s article explaining the Daily Sacrifice and its end time pre-tribulation significance in detail.    Will a Daily Sacrifice Begin Soon?

Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days [1,290].

Once the miracle working man of sin is set up doing miracles in the Vatican as Christ’s spiritual daily intervention [which is restraining Satan] is stopped by Christ’s rejection of today’s corporate Ekklesia [who are overwhelmingly Laodicea], there will be 1,290 days and all who continue beyond that and reach the 1,335th day will be greatly blessed.  This blessing is not pronounced on any particular people but on all people.

After the abomination [man of sin] is set up doing miracles in the Vatican, and the end of the 1,290 days is reached, the faithful will be blessed because the resurrection to spirit will take place after the completion of the 1290 days.  The resurrection to spirit will take place on the very next day after the completion of the 1,290th day. 

The resurrection of the faithful and chosen will take place on the sixth day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread on the day immediately after the 1,290 days are completed; on the 1,291st day after the abomination is set up in the Vatican doing miracles.   

Then the resurrected chosen will be married to the Lamb before the throne of God in heaven and during the marriage feast in heaven (Rev 15) the seven last plagues will be poured out on the earth.  

Then within 45 days after the resurrection, the changed to spirit chosen will come to the earth with Christ (Rev 19) to put down the wicked and to receive their portion; and at the END of the 1,335 days they will “stand in their lot.” 

The faithful will be blessed immediately after the end of the 1,290 days [on the 1,291st day] when they are changed to spirit

God’s Spirit will be poured out on all flesh establishing the kingdom of God over all the earth on that Feast of Pentecost. Then the resurrected chosen will  receive their responsibilities at the END of the 1,335th day.

1290 days plus 45 days  equals 1335 total days until all flesh is blessed by the removal of Satan and the establishment of the Kingdom of God45 days

 

The whole earth will be blessed when God’s Spirit will be poured out on all flesh (Joel 2:28) on the 1,335th day, the Feast of Pentecost, and then the  Kingdom of God will be established over all peoples, at the END of the 1,335 days.  

Be very careful here, the chosen might return to the earth BEFORE the end of the 1,335 days to fight against the wicked; it is when the wicked are defeated and Satan is removed that the Kingdom of God will be established and God’s Spirit will be poured out on all flesh on the Fast of Pentecost.  

Consider that Israel arrived at Sinai and then had to wait for a few days before Pentecost came and God appeared on the Mount; and that in the first century the brethren had to wait until Pentecost for the official establishment of the New Covenant with a general pouring out of God’s Spirit.  

12:12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.   12:13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.

If we subtract the 1,260 days of the tribulation from the maximum of 1,335 days which the man of sin will have [since this man is killed and the tribulation ends at the same time,with the coming of Christ (Rev 19:20)]; we find that the man of sin will go to the holy place  and the tribulation will begin approximately 75 days AFTER he is set up doing miracles in the Vatican.    

When this abomination is set up doing miracles in the Vatican, he will encourage the nations of Europe to join a proposed New Federal Europe (Rev 13:11), and in a matter of weeks after he is set up God will reveal his two prophets who will tell the brethren what to do.

After this abomination is set up doing miracles in the Vatican, approximately 75 days will be needed for him to bring life to the New Europe and a somewhat shorter time for God’s Two Witnesses to tell the faithful what to do.

At this point it is necessary to say that this working out of these two periods of  “days” ending on Pentecost, happens only very rarely.  It will happen in 2018 – 2022 and it will not happen again for a number of years.

IF 2018 were to be the year that the tribulation begins, as the 2300 Day Prophecy indicates:  Would these 1,290 and 1335 days fit into a necessary period of 45 days between the end of the 1,290 days with the resurrection to spirit coming on the sixth day of Unleavened Bread  and the end of the 1,335 days on a Feast of Pentecost when God will pour out his Spirit on all flesh?

IF the abomination were to be set up doing miracles in the Vatican in 2018, he would be set up about 9 October, because counting forward 1,290 days from 9 Oct we end up on the fifth day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread on 21 April 2022.

The resurrection would take place on the very next day, 22 April 2022 [the sixth day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread when Israel rose up from the Red Sea in a type of the resurrection of the called out];  and God’s Spirit would be poured out on all flesh 45 days later on the Feast of Pentecost, 5 June 2022. 

The formula works out exactly for the man of sin to be set up in the Vatican doing miracles in Oct 2018 and the tribulation to begin in December of 2018. 

Then after the completion of the 1,290 days, on the very next day the 1,291st day, would be the sixth day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread when the resurrection to spirit of the chosen would take place! 

The resurrected chosen will then be married to the Lamb before the throne of God the Father in heaven (Rev 15) while the seven last plagues are poured out.  They would then return to the earth with Christ (Rev 19), where on the Feast of Pentecost 5 Jun, 2022 (Joel 2:28), God will pour out his Spirit on all flesh and the kingdom of God will be established over all the earth AFTER that DAY ends!

 

In Conclusion

  1. The abomination will be set up doing miracles in the Vatican and will call for the nations of Europe to just a proposed New Federal Europe and ten nations will agree to accept the already formulated and proposed plan,
  2. Soon after that, God will send his Two Witnesses to warn the brethren, and by the power which God has given them, they will enable the faithful to leave, 
  3. The tribulation will begin when that man of sin goes to the Temple Mount, within approximately 75 days of being set up [those 75 days being needed to set up the New Europe and for the faithful to leave], 
  4. The resurrection will take place at the end of the 1,290 days; that is on the 1,291st day, 
  5. After the marriage of the Lamb at the Father’s House in heaven, the Husband and his bride will come to the earth to place Satan and his servants in prison and destroy wickedness, 
  6. Then on the 1,335th day [a feast of Pentecost] God’s Spirit will be poured out on all flesh, and
  7. Then at the END of the 1,335th day which is ON the 1,336th day, the Kingdom of God will be established and the collective resurrected bride will stand in their lot and receive their inheritance on the earth:  at the END of the days.  Daniel 12:13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.

Dear Brethren,  I want to make it absolutely clear that ALL of the prophecies point to the great tribulation beginning in late 2018.  That said, I also know that mistakes can be made; therefore I will not set any date or declare that this is the year, even though it is highly probable; UNTIL I see the man of sin set up in the Vatican doing miracles. 

It is very important to keep an eye on the news and the process of resetting the regional realities towards reaching a Middle East peace deal (1 Thess 5::3) which is a major key sign, and watch the Vatican to see when the miracle working abomination spoken of in Daniel 12 and Matthew 24:15 is set up. 

ONLY when these things come will it be the time; and ONLY when these things happen will God’s Two Witnesses appear to tell us what to do.  I am posting these things so that as many brethren as possible will be wide awake, alert and at the ready at the appointed time. 

Your prayers and financial help are much appreciated and greatly needed, to complete this phase of the work of warning and preparing the bride.
