1335/1290/1260 Days Explained, 3.5 Year Time Period – By: Don Roth
Reading and understanding this information will open your eyes to the prophetic meaning of the important days revealed in the books of Daniel and Revelation.
Before reading this information that defines what these days represent it is imperative to read the article: INTRODUCTION TO BIBLICAL TIME. All time elements of the Bible are based on the movement of the earth, moon and sun. Their travel is what determines time. The moon circling the earth as it travels around the sun results in a moon based month set against a solar year. Many chronologists base their work on the Gregorian calendar which is the calendar presently in use. The Bible is not based on that calendar.
It must be understood that until certain "events" take place for all to see, we are always at least 3.5 years away from the return of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of the saints. Who will determines when Christ will return? The answer is made plain in Matthew 24:36—“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of [a]heaven, but My Father only.” Footnote: [a] NU adds “nor the Son.” Not knowing the day or the hour makes it certain that the year cannot be known. A certain day with a certain hour automatically determines the year on which they occur. Therefore the year is also unknown.
In Matt. 22 in the parable of the Wedding Supper the king represents God the Father sending out invitations in preparation of His Son’s return and wedding. First the invitation goes to the Jewish nation. Because they deem the earthly pursuit of making a living, and satiating the desires of the body, they neglect the importance of remembering that the God who created everything had chosen them as His special people with a special purpose. Deut. 4:5-10. “Surely I have taught you the statues and judgments, just as the Lord my God commanded me that you should act according to them in the land which you go to possess. Therefore be careful to observe them, for this is your wisdom and understanding in the sight of the people who will hear all these statues, and say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the Lord our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him? And what great nation is there that has such statues and righteous judgments as are in all this law which I set before you this day? Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest that depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren.’”
These are the laws and statues that give order and substance to the only way of life that can bring peace and satisfaction to anyone or any nation. These important truths are what Christ came to teach, taking these laws to a spiritual level. Matt. 5:21-22. “You have heard that it was said to those of old, you shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment. But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, raca shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, you fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.”
JUDAH REJECTS GOD’S INVITATION
But the nation of Judah rejected the God who had set them as an example to the world. Matt.22:5-7“But they made light of it and went their way to his own farm, another to his business. And the rest seized his servants, and treated them spitefully and killed them. But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burnt up their city.” This was the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD, fulling that prophecy.
Luke 13:34 says, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who killed the prophets and stoned those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were not willing!”
GENTILES RECEIVE INVITATION
It is after this that the Father sends out more servants to invite more guests. Luke 14:21.“So that servant came and reported these things to his Master. Then the master of the house, being angry said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city and bring in here the poor and the maimed and the lame and the blind. And the servant said, ‘Master, it is done as you commanded, and still there is room.’” This period is seen in the seven eras of God’s called out ones.
This culminates with the seventh era - the Laodicean church, spoken of in Revelation 3:17. “Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing – and do you not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked –?‘” The master’s house is still not filled with guests, so he sends out his servants again, and all the seats were then filled. The Father reached the number of guests required to fill His house for the wedding. It is a number that He has determined. Just as the day or the hour of Christ’s return is in His power, so the number of guests that He has set is reached - the number that He has determined.
DETERMINATION OF THE FATHER
Then what is the significance of the Father wanting all of the places filled at the wedding feast? It is not taken to fill a quota, but to fill the room with those who understand that He is looking for people who will change their way of living. Those who will turn from breaking God’s laws, observe His Sabbath and Holy Days, and live righteously. This means that God’s laws of conduct are observed by not stealing, lying, murdering, not breaking marriage vows, and recognizing God the Father as their maker. These rules stem from the realization that we exist only because He made us and we live at His pleasure. These are the ones resurrected to eternal life at the return of Christ. They will serve under His direction for the thousand years of His reign.
Christ explains this in John 15:1-2. “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine dresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” Christ is saying that the Father is the one deciding when a branch (person) is producing fruit. If not producing good fruit it is cut from the vine and cast into the fire. Other branches are pruned so they produce more fruit. Here fruit is equated by how one is living his life and following the example set by Christ.
This understanding is confirmed in Matt. 22:11-13. “But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’” Like the example in John 15:1-2, it is seen that the king, the Father, determines who will be allowed to attend the wedding supper. Or, who will be in the first resurrection. Rev. 19:9. “Then he said to me, write: ‘blessed are those are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’”Rev. 20:6 expands on this. “Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with them a thousand years.”
The meaning of this is that the Father develops our character through the trials of this life, and encourages us through blessings, and the Son feeds us through the words of the Bible. By making the Bible a factual book our faith is increased, and by understanding the flow of time and how it is based on the uninterrupted seven day creation Sabbath week the Bible becomes an absolute, accurate, historical book that can be trusted in all of its pronouncements.
By understanding what has been brought to light, why is the day of the return of Christ unknown? The answer is in the uncompromising faith of the individual. Until the Father has tested each one who has been called to receive the gift of eternal life, they must be found faithful unto death. They then will be in the number who fills His house. Christ will not come to this earth to rule until that number is reached.
WHO IS THE BRIDE OF CHRIST?
To have a wedding feast it is presupposed that a wedding has taken place. The groom is Christ, but the bride is to be determined. Rev.14:1-4 -“Then I looked and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their forehead. And I heard the voice from heaven like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpist playing their harps. They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. These were the ones who were not defiled with woman, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes.” (His new wife.)
The Father is the one who chooses the bride. John 17:6-8. “I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of this world. They were Yours, You gave to Me and they have kept Your word. Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You. For I have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me.” In the coming kingdom it is the bride who will carry out its administration.
Key positions in the kingdom are reserved for them. Matt. 20:20-21, 23. “Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to him with her sons, kneeling down and asking something from Him. And He said to her, ‘What do you want?’ She said to Him, ‘Grant that these two sons of mine may sit, one on Your right hand and the other on the left in Your kingdom.’” Vs. 23: “So He said to them, ‘you will indeed drink My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with; but to sit on My right hand and on My left is not mine to give, but it is for those for whom it is prepared by My Father.’” The Father determines the bride.
Matt. 19:27-29. “Then Peter answered and said to Him, ‘See, we have left all and followed You. Therefore what shall we have?’ So Jesus said to them, ‘Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or fathers or mothers or wife or children or lands, for My names sake, shall receive a hundred fold and inherit eternal life.’”
The understanding of these prophetic periods of time begins in Daniel 7:25. “He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute[a] the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time.”Footnote: [a]Lit. Wear out. This is the key scripture that has a pre-determined place in the flow of prophecy. What would define its length? A time is defined as one year, and times as two years, plus half a time equals three and one half years.
In a moon based calendar, which is what the Bible is based on, there can be as many as forty-four months, or as few as forty-three in those 3.5 years. It can never have forty-two months and that is because moon month years have either twelve or thirteen months. The most that can fall in any three year period will have two thirteen month years totaling forty-four months. All other three year periods will have at least one thirteen month year totaling forty-three months. This is why there can never be a forty-two month period in any three and one-half biblical years. Consult Chart 3under Biblical Research to confirm. See column MLY for length of moon month years. (https://www.biblicalcalendarproof.com/Content/files/Chart%203%202022%2006%2028%20PDF.pdf )
1335 of DANIEL 12
Rev. 13, verses 15 through 17 explain what is meant by “great tribulation.” “He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slaves to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or name of the beast, or the number of his name.” With this understanding the placing of Daniel’s 1335 days begins.
Dan. 12:12.“Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the 1,335 days.” Why would they be blessed for coming to these days? It is because they will be alive to witness the resurrection of the dead at the return of Christ. I Thes. 4:14-15. “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.” This is a companion scripture to I Cor. 15:51-53.“Behold I tell you a mystery: we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, we shall all be changed. For the corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
THE TWO GROUPS
Two different groups are presented here. One group must forfeit their lives before Christ’s return, and the others who are alive will witness the resurrection.
In I Cor. 15:52 Paul defines the time of the resurrection that he described in I Thessalonians 4. The last trumpet is the time of the saints’ resurrection. Read the article: ‘PENTECOST, TEH FORGOTTEN DAY’ for a full explanation.
Obviously the persecution has already occurred, and therefore the often taught “rapture theory” is debunked. These theorists say that God’s people will be raptured before the persecution, but as shown, the Bible tells a different story. The resurrection occurs after the trumpet plagues, and the idea of being saved from these plagues is Biblically impossible, for the resurrection happens at the last trumpet.
This persecution mentioned in Daniel 7:25 and Revelation 13:17 ends with the death of the last of the saints not in a place of safety. The two witnesses of Revelation 11 are the last to die and are the first of the dead to be resurrected. God calls them with a great sound of His voice. Rev. 11:12 – “And they heard a loud (great) voice from heaven saying them, ‘Come up here.’ And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them.” As they were dead three and one half days their resurrection occurs at an early hour of the morning. That great voice is the same voice of I Thes .4:16.“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.” Note that the word “shout” is the same Strong’s number used in Revelation 11 as loud.
THE 1260 DAY EXPLANATION IN REVELATION 12
These two groups are seen in Revelation 12. The group that lives will begin their travel to the place of safety at the start of the 1335 days. To understand Rev. 12 it is necessary to look at verse 6. “Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her one thousand two hundred and sixty days.” Another reference is in verse 14. “But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle that she might fly into the wilderness to her place.” This is a direct reference to Ex. 19:4. “You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagle’s wings and brought you to myself.” The parallel of Israel fleeing Egypt and this group of called out ones fleeing to a place of safety is obvious.
By making this comparison to the Exodus God is pointing to what will happen to this group of called out ones.Israel was thrust out of Egypt because of the ten plagues that God brought on the Egyptians. This group of believers in Revelation 12 is going to be thrust out, just as Israel was thrust out of Egypt. God used two men to lead His people out of Egypt: Moses and Aaron. Will God again have two men leading His people out a second time? Will He bring them out of obscurity as He did with Moses and Aaron?
For those who understand the Exodus story the picture becomes clearer. This group must have two men who are leaders, just as the Israelites had two men, Moses and Aaron. Rev. 11:3.“And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophecy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” These two leaders are not biblically recognized until they begin their work of prophesying in Jerusalem 1263.5 days before their resurrection. They are the ones who will bring about the circumstances which cause a group of called out ones to leave their homes and loved ones for a place that God has prepared to feed them for one thousand two hundred and sixty days. This is the defining moment in which God’s separates His people into two groups; those fleeing who are the group of 1335 days, and those who remain.
As Israel was fleeing Egypt the Pharaoh had a change of mind and decided to go after them, catching up with them at the Red Sea. This is on the seventh day of Israel’s flight from Egypt when Pharaoh attacked them. From this it can be understood that Satan will attack this present day group of fleeing people before they reach the safe place that God has prepared for them.
The statement, “carried on eagle’s wings” is a direct reference to the first seven days of travel out of Egypt. Ex. 13:21. “And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night.”
Just as Israel was gathered from the area of Goshen to flee from Egypt to go to the Promised Land, so will the Called of God be gathered to flee to a prepared place of safety from wherever they are. Satan will wait until all have come together as one group before he sends his army to destroy them. As the group travels to spend one thousand two hundred and sixty days in a fixed place, it is seen that they will be fed there with physical food, as well as being taught about the thousand year reign of Christ and what they will be doing under the direction of Christ.
A parallel can be seen by what Paul experienced before his ministry to the Gentiles began in earnest. Gal. 1:15-18. “But when it pleased God, (the Father) who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, to reveal His son to me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood, nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and returned again to Damascus. Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and remained with him fifteen days.” And in verse 12 it says, “For I neither received it from men, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
Satan will send an army to destroy the saints of Revelation 12 during their journey. Rev. 12: 15.“So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.” This is an allegorical statement. Satan can only do what God allows. Job 1:12.“And the Lord said to Satan, ‘Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not lay a hand on his person.” This flight occurs at the beginning of the 1335 days when those called of God begin their trek to the place where they will be fed for 1260 days. Why would God the Father allow Satan to attack His fleeing people? Because it is clearly a test of facing death, just as Moses told Israel in Ex. 14:13. “Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.’” The fleeing people of God pass this test because they stand, knowing that God is going to save them, or resurrect them on the day of Christ’s return.
It is the end of time, times and half a time that they are fleeing from Satan spoken of in Rev. 12:14.“But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time from the presence of the serpent.” Satan’s attack occurs before the 1260 day time period. The three and one half years can be a maximum of 1300 days, with a minimum of 1269 days, and is the time that God’s people will be free of Satan’s attacks. As they begin the trek to the Place of Safety Satan will attack them during the first 35 to 66 days of their travel.
The Bible uses a moon based system of twelve or thirteen months for the year length. Therefore, in the twelve month years, the year length will be 353, 354 or 355 days. The thirteen month year will have 383,384 or 385 days in length, and is explained in detail in the afore mentioned article “INTRODUCTION TO BIBLICAL TIME”.
Dan. 12:7—“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,” (At the death of the two witnesses.) Therefore the conclusion is that the time element of Daniel 12:7 is similar to the 1260 days of Revelation 11:3. This same statement about time is found in Revelation 12:14—“But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.”
THE FATHER’S PROMISE
In Rev. 3:10 God makes a promise to those of the sixth era of the Called of God. “Because you have kept My commands to persevere, I will also keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world to test those who dwell on the earth.” He says, “because you kept My command,” which is number 3056 in Strong’s, and means this word of God given by Christ to man pertains to the way a person is to live their life. God says He will protect whoever is doing this from “the hour,” a period of time depicting trial. Number 3986 equals a time of death and mourning, and is what Revelation 3:10 is about; the protection of those who are holding fast to the commands given by Christ in God’s Word, the Bible.
Rev.12:17represents a second group of God’s people: those keeping His commandments. “And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
What is the difference between the two groups? Why does one flee and the other does not? The answer lies in Heb. 11:6. “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” All of God’s people are aware of the promise of Rev. 3:10. Then why are some willing to flee and others resist?
THE CALLED STAND FIRM
Many of God’s people in today’s era are being led by men of reputation who have large followings. In these groups the people feel secure in their numbers and reputation, so they willingly follow their leader/s. They are ill-equipped to stand on their own. When there is a clash between the government of their country and those speaking against the present Sodom and Gomorrah standards being taught to them, then this group is forced to flee. Those who are fleeing make an independent decision, not relying on the men of reputation, but relying on their own personal relationship with the Father and the Son.
II Cor. 1:24. “Not that we have dominion over your faith, but are fellow workers for your joy, for by faith you stand.”
The fleeing group knows and believes that the Father will reward those who diligently seek Him. Strong’s number 1567 explains: “to seek diligently or earnestly after, namely God, with a sincere and earnest desire to obtain His favor.” Hebrews 11:6 must be examined carefully to grasp the true impact for the Called of God. The first word is faith. Heb. 11:1. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Substance has the number 5287. “What really exists under any appearance, reality, essential nature” The word hope is not as it appears today, but is defined by number 1679. “To hope is to expect with desire.” Strong’s number 1650, meaning “certain persuasion,” as in II Tim. 3:16.“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”
Persuasion is done by the evidence as presented in Rom. 1:20. “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse……”
By examining the evidence given in the Bible, it is found that it is absolute truth. That is what this work is about – proving the Bible to be historically correct and morally absolute, being done to find the truth. If God finds us so doing, He will reward those who are diligently seeking Him by looking to His word.
Dan. 12:12—“Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty- five days.” These are blessed of God, because on this day they will be changed to spirit beings. Only one group can be considered here; they are those who are physically alive at the return of Christ; the ones in the Place of Safety on this earth who will be alive to witness the resurrection, and then they will be changed to Spirit Beings as shown in I Thes. 4 and I Cor. 15.
Rev. 20:6 -- “Blest and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.”
At this time Satan departs from the Called of God who are traveling to the Place of Safety and he goes to make war with those who chose not to flee, defining the correct time in years of “time, times and half a time” of Rev 14.
Dan. 12:11—“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.” For this time period to begin, one of two things must happen. Either a temporary altar will be set up as Ezra did in Ez. 3:2, “Then Jeshua, the son of Jozadak and his brethren the priests, and Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel and his brethren, arose and built the alter of the God of Israel, to offer burnt offerings on it, as it is written in the Law of Moses the man of God.” Or most likely a counterfeit temple built on the Wailing Wall, possibly in the final days of construction when God’s people will begin their trek to the Place of Safety. These 1290 days come to their end at the same time that Christ returns and resurrects His people at the end of 1260 Days. Read: WAS ISAAC A TYPE OF CHRIST? It places the temple location at the time of Christ’s crucifixion. (https://www.biblicalcalendarproof.com/articles/was-isaac-type-christ )
Rev. 11:2-3—“But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure
it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months. 3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” Some incorrectly believe that the 1260 days represent 42 months of 30 days each. As has been pointed out, the Bible never uses a 30 day month consecutively, and because there are forty-two months it does not correlate to the time, times and half a time; or as some say, three and one-half years, which is a shorter period than time, times and half a time by either 29 or 30 days, depending upon which years they encompass. The forty-two months is a variable number, just as the time, times and half a time is a variable number, having as many as 1300 days minus 30 (one month) equaling 1270, or 1269 days minus 30 equaling 1240 days. This is the range in days that would be expected.

Presented here is the mathematical explanation of the 1335 Days—using the year 2017 as if it were the year of Christ's Return. To be clear: Jesus Christ DID NOT return in 2017.Matt. 24:36—“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of [a]heaven, but My Father only.” Footnote: [a] NU adds nor the Son.
It follows from Scripture that the "First Resurrection of the Saints" will be on Pentecost of whatever year the Father decides. For a more complete understanding read the afore mentioned article, ‘PENTECOST - THE FORGOTTEN DAY.’
• Jesus Christ was crucified on the Passover in 4076 AM/30 AD, Wednesday April 10/Nisan 14 approximately 3 PM in the afternoon.Mark 15:37 – “AndJesus cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last.”
• Jesus Christ was resurrected 3 days and 3 nights late on Saturday from the tomb which He was laid in on Wednesday, April 13/Nisan 17 just before sunset.
• Jesus Christ showed Himself to Mary Magdalene after He was resurrected and prior to ascending. [John 20:11-18]
• Jesus Christ ascended, was accepted as the Wave Sheaf Offering by the Father, and returned on Sunday, the same day. April 14/Nisan 18—first day of the 50-day count to Pentecost.
• Jesus Christ ascended again on the 40th day of the count to Pentecost—Thursday, May 23/Iyar 27.
• Pentecost (Day 50) was June 2/Sivan 8, or 4076 AM/30 AD when The Holy Spirit was given.
Here begins the mathematical explanation of when the 1335 days would have begun if the resurrection occurred in 2017.
Passover can only ever occur on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday, or Sabbath (Saturday). This locks in the first weekly Sabbath of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, AND when Pentecost has to occur that same year. [This also locks in the other Holy Days as well.]
• Passover on a Monday (14th Nisan), makes the first weekly Sabbath of the Feast of Unleavened Bread on the 19th day of Nisan. Those 19 days plus the 50 days until Pentecost is 69 days. The first month of the Hebrew Calendar is 30 days; the second month is 29 days. 30+29=59 days. 69-59=10. Therefore the 10th day of the 3rd month HAS to be Pentecost when Passover is on a Monday.
• Again, Passover on a Monday automatically makes Pentecost on the 10th day of the 3rd Month (Sivan).
• Passover on a Wednesday makes Pentecost on the 8th day (67 days from the beginning of the Hebrew Calendar year) of the 3rd month (Sivan).
• Passover on a Friday makes Pentecost on the 6th day (65 days from the beginning of the Hebrew Calendar year) of the 3rd month (Sivan).
• Passover on a Sabbath makes Pentecost on the 5th day (64 days from the beginning of the Hebrew Calendar) of the 3rd month (Sivan).
• The following chart shows the progression in days to Pentecost.
Using Pentecost of 2017—6063 AM/2017 AD June 4/Sivan10, 1335 days earlier would have been Tuesday, October 8/Cheshvan 4, 6059 AM/2013 AD. Remember, the day of the resurrection as shown in the Bible, is based on the Hebrew calendar, not the Gregorian calendar.
• 6063 AM/2017 AD, June 4/Sivan 10 was a Sunday—Pentecost. There are 69 days (Hebrew Calendar) to count in 2017.
• 2016 had 353 Hebrew Calendar days.
• 2015 had 385 Hebrew Calendar days.
• 2014 had 354 Hebrew Calendar days.
• 69 + 353 + 385 + 354 = 1161 days.
• 1335 -1161 = 174 days which occur at the end of 2013.
• 2013 had 385 Hebrew Calendar days. 385 - 174 = 211. The first 211 days of 2013 takes it to the 174th day left in 2013.
This means that 211 days into 2013 would be the starting point to flee to a place of safety. Refer to the calendars below to see the starting day that the Called of God begin their trek to the Place of Safety in 2013, followed by the remaining yearly charts that go to the year 2017, the proposed year of fleeing.
It is seen that the physical evidence of the first year of the 1335 days reveals the calendar day on which the flight to safety occurs. The Bible has two scriptures that use the same number of days. Looking at the two periods of 1260 days, one applies to the woman (those called of God) taken to her place of safety. Rev. 12:6 – “Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she has a place prepared by God that they should feed her one thousand two hundred and sixty days.” The other applies to the two witnesses. Rev. 11:3 – “And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” Three and one half days must be added to the 1260 days, bringing the end of the two hundred and sixty-three and one half days. Rev. 11:12 –“And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, ‘Come up here’. And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them.”
This makes it clear, and is absolute Biblical proof, that the first to rise would be the two witnesses followed by the rest of the dead. The last to be resurrected would be those who are in the Place of Safety as seen in chapter 12 of Revelation.
