The 70 Weeks Prophecy and the 1290 DAYS

The second half of Daniel’s seventieth prophetic week is that of 1290 days found in Daniel 12:11. This time period begins when “the daily sacrifice is taken away” and ends when “the abomination that makes desolate (is) set up.” Concerning the abomination of desolation, it is not a carbon copy of what was done by Antiochus Epiphanes cir. 167 BC. In fact, all Antiochus did was carry out the judgment of God upon what was already an abomination to him. Notice:

2 Maccabees 5:17-20 KJVA (17) And so haughty was Antiochus in mind, that he considered not that the Lord was angry for a while for the sins of them that dwelt in the city, and therefore his eye was not upon the place. (18) For had they not been formerly wrapped in many sins, this man, as soon as he had come, had forthwith been scourged, and put back from his presumption, as Heliodorus was, whom Seleucus the king sent to view the treasury. (19) Nevertheless God did not choose the people for the place’s sake, but the place far the people’s sake. (20) And therefore the place itself, that was partaker with them of the adversity that happened to the nation, did afterward communicate in the benefits sent from the Lord: and as it was forsaken in the wrath of the Almighty, so again, the great Lord being reconciled, it was set up with all glory.

The Lord merely used this gentile leader to chastise his people and bring about their repentance from an abominable course that would have brought about their judgment and destruction long before the coming of Christ. Antiochus was the instrument of God to bring about the repentance of his people before it was too late.

In Daniel 9:27 the use of the pronoun he seems vague. Some believe it could mean either the Messiah or “the prince who is to come,” i.e. the Beast! But the context leaves little doubt as to whom “he” refers. Notice:

Daniel 9:26-27 KJV And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. (27) And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. (emphasis mine)

The two verses quoted above are compound and complex sentences. The subjects of each compound clause are in bold. The subjects in verse-26 are Messiah, people, and the word end. The word he could not refer to the words people or end. The word he in verse-27 could refer only to Messiah in verse-26. The phrase: “of the prince that shall come” is a complex prepositional phrase and describes only one of the main thoughts of the compound sentence in verse-26. It has absolutely nothing to do with what goes on in verse-27.

Furthermore, the word for “cut off” in verse-26 is karath (G3772) and actually means “cut a covenant.” The same word is used of God who made a covenant with Abraham (Genesis 15:18) and of Israel who made a covenant with God (Jeremiah 34:18). The whole idea in Daniel 9:26-27 of Messiah being cut or cut off is not simply being killed, but in dying he cuts or make a covenant—the New Covenant, which if taken lightly Christ will not hold that man guiltless (Matthew 24:50-51)! Daniel 9:27 shows Messiah was cut 3½ years into the 70th week of years. Christ was crucified 3½ years into his public ministry. Daniel 9:26 says that Messiah will be cut off after the 69th week, but does not say how long after. Verse-27 shows that it is 3 ½ years into the seventieth week. Whatever can be said about the 1290 days, it cannot be authoritatively denied that Jesus, the Messiah, was cut off 1260 days after he had begun his ministry; and 1260 days is the midst of a week of years!

Daniel 9:27 says “He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week…” Although many claim this refers to the Beast making a future deal with modern Israel, Scripture shows that Jesus confirmed the covenant for 1260 days, or 3 ½ years of the 7-year week, and was cut (off) in the midst of that prophetic week. Could he also have fulfilled the final 3 ½ years of the seventieth week as well, via the Holy Spirit in the persons of the Apostles following his Resurrection? For those of us who prefer the truth to involving ourselves in prophetic plots of end time intrigue, Jesus did, in fact, confirm the covenant for the second 3 ½ years. He was cut (off) in the middle of the prophetic seventieth week, and through his single sacrifice caused the need of the daily sacrifice to cease. Notice:

Hebrews 10:10-18 KJV By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. (11) And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: (12) But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God; (13) From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. (14) For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified. (15) Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, (16) This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; (17) And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. (18) Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. (emphasis mine)

Did you catch that? “…where remission of these is there is no more offering for sin.” Whatever we may think about ending the sacrificial system in the Temple, Jesus certainly did cause the daily sacrifice to cease in the lives of all who received him as their Passover Lamb. Thousands of Jews were converted in the first few days after hearing Peter’s sermon on Pentecost, 31 AD. Did they continue to offer sacrifices of lambs, and goats and bulls when they sinned? Did they continue to look to the old system? The obvious answer to these questions is “No!” While sacrifices did continue for those who looked to Jesus, such were offered in ceremonial worship (cf. Acts 21:23-24). No one looked to the Law to save them or cover their sins (cf. Acts 15:10-11). What was done in the spiritual realm was later borne out in the physical realm as well in 70 AD with the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple (cf. Romans 4:17b).

The study of the 1260 days leaves us at the death of Christ on the Feast of Passover, Nisan 14, 31 AD. While Jesus was in the grave for three days and three nights, he could not continue to confirm the covenant until he rose from the dead. Therefore the 1290 days cannot begin until after his resurrection. According to Unger’s Bible Dictionary, the Wave Sheaf Offering, which occurred during the eight day Passover festival, marked the beginning of the harvest season for the year. It consisted of an ephah of grain, which was approximately 3 ½ pecks. The sheaves were marked and tied into a number of bunches on Passover evening and harvested a few days later.

When the grain was harvested just after the 7th day Sabbath was passed, it was made ready for the offering in the morning, at or around the time of the morning sacrifice. When the firstfruits of the grain harvest were offered to God, the rest of the grain was sanctified and could be harvested. The Wave Sheaf offering pictures the resurrected Christ being offered to God, as the Firstfruits of the harvest of mankind (1Corinthians 15:20-23). When God accepted the sacrifice of Christ, he sanctified the rest of the harvest. No further sacrifice is needed for our acceptance, and thus all other sacrifices including the daily sacrifice were “taken way” (Daniel 8:11; 12:11) as far as our acceptance before God is concerned. They had become ceremonial worship after Jesus’ resurrection and acceptance by the Father at the time of the Wave Sheave offering early on the morning–the First Day of the Weeks that counted to Pentecost.

It is from this point that we can begin counting the 1290 days. These days count from the time of the offering of the Wave Sheaf – when Christ ascended to his Father just after his resurrection (cf. John 20:17 and Matthew 28:9). At this point the Daily Sacrifice was officially taken away. Notice how the Septuagint translates Daniel 9:27…

Daniel 9:27 Brenton (LXX)  And one week shall establish the covenant with many: and in the midst of the week my sacrifice and drink-offering shall be taken away: and on the temple shall be the abomination of desolations; and at the end of time an end shall be put to the desolation.

“My Sacrifice and Drink-Offering” is Christ. He was taken away from us in the crucifixion and received in our stead by the Father on the day of the Wave Sheaf Offering. From this point onward to the time the abomination that makes desolate is set up (Daniel 12:11) was 1290 days, culminating in the killing of Stephen. Stephen’s death marks the first time blood was shed in Christ’s name since the crucifixion. It is the end of the “safe” period mentioned in Revelation 12:13-17, there called a “time, times and half a time” or 3 ½ prophetic years (1290 days). Daniel calls it a time when the power of the holy people will be “scattered” (cf. Acts 8:1, 4). A graph is provided below to show how the calculations would appear on paper.  The abomination that brought desolation was the open rebellion of the Jewish leadership who approved of Stephen’s murder. The high priest and the Sanhedrin effectively set themselves up in authority opposing the authority of God. This brought the desolation of the city of Jerusalem and the Temple.

The 1290 days (Daniel 12:11) began at the time of the ‘Wave-Sheaf’ offering on Nisan 18, AD. This offering sanctified the rest of the harvest. Nothing could be harvested until the time of this offering (Leviticus 23:10-14). It represented Jesus’ sacrifice and our Father’s acceptance him, thus sanctifying the ‘harvest’ of mankind. No further sacrifice was needed, because Christ–“My Sacrifice and Drink Offering was taken away (crucified) and accepted by the Father when he received Jesus’ sacrifice on this day.

The animal sacrificial system looked forward to Jesus’ sacrifice on Golgotha. The 1290 days ended with the total rejection of Jesus in unbelief by the Jewish authorities. They were given sufficient time to repent, but they preferred man over God. This is the abomination that makes desolate. It was set up when the high priest, the leader of the people, rejected Christ and commanded the stoning of Stephen on the Day of Atonement in 34 AD. Thus, both the 1260 days and the 1290 days end in the shedding of blood.

May the Lord open our eyes to see the truth of his word and cause us to stop placing our trust in men. We need to be careful and watch that men do not take away our devotion to him. God help us!

    Eddie, I read your blogs on the 2690 days. What is the meaning of the 1335 days and why is it blessed. The two events are contrasted.

      You may read my understanding in detail HERE, but in essence the 1335 days begin with Jesus claiming the Holy Spirit is upon him (on the Feast of Trumpets or the Jewish New Year), which marks the beginning of his public ministry, and the 1335 days end with the Holy Spirit upon the Disciples of Jesus on Pentecost (Feast of First Fruits), which marks the beginning of the ministry of the Church. Those who wait are “blessed” for obvious reasons: they waited and the Holy Spirit fell upon them.

      Eddie, I agree with the meaning of the 1335 days (Pentecost), but I am confused on the 1290 days ending with the stoning of Stephen.

      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. 12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
      Dan 12:11-12 (KJV)

      It is clear from the text in Daniel that the 1335 days is merely a continuation of the 1290 days. So, we only need to count forward 45 days to reach the blessed day. All of the prophecies of Daniel concerning the counting of days relates to Christ, the Messiah.

      I struggle with the extra 30 days between 1260 and 1290. The 1260 matches the 3 1/2 symbolism, but not the 1290. I believe it is all of continuous span of time, but I am stumped about the reason for the extra 30 days.

      Overall, excellent work on the meaning of the days. Well thought out, I greatly enjoyed it. I need to bone up on my understanding of Jewish history.

        I almost closed down the computer. You commented here while I was replying to another comment by you on another post.

        I don’t see these days taking off immediately one after another. The 1260 days of Revelation 12 are the ‘time, times and half a time’ in Daniel 12. I have it beginning on the Last Great Day of the Feast of Tabernacles during the first month of Jesus’ public ministry. If one counts 1260 days from that day (22nd day of the 7th month), 3 1/2 years later one comes to the Passover when Jesus was crucified (14th day of the 1st month). This is so no matter what day of the week one begins the 1260 days. However, the other days work out only if Jesus was crucified on a Wednesday. The following day, the 15th of Nisan, was a Holy Day Sabbath.

        Jesus lay in the tomb for 3 days and 3 nights. On Resurrection Sunday, about sunrise, the Wave Sheaf was offered that blessed the harvest (for Jesus it was the spiritual harvest). This day, the 18th of Nisan (for that year) begins the 1290 days of Daniel 12 (the time, times and half a time of Revelation 12). During this period the saints were protected by God. Stephen’s death marks the end of that period. If one counts 1290 days from the 18th of Nisan in the year Jesus was crucified, one comes to the Day of Atonement the 10th day of the seventh month 3 1/2 years later.

        The 1335 days begin three weeks before and are overlaid on top of the 1260 days and over 7 weeks of the 1290 days. It begins on the Feast of Trumpets when Jesus began his public ministry in Nazareth (Luke 4). He claimed “the Spirit of the Lord is upon me…” If one counted 1335 days from this day (the first day of the 7th month, the day Jesus began his public ministry), one would arrive at Pentecost (when the Spirit was upon the disciples), the 8th day of the 3rd month in the year Jesus was crucified. These days are found in Leviticus 23. Everything gets fulfilled in Christ in one way or another.

        I’ll have to check on my posts regarding these days. I may have left explanatory things out that should have remained. Lord bless you in your studies.

    Thing is the Earliest Christian traditions all agreed Stephen was Stoned on December 26th.

     
    • Eddie

      October 11, 2015 at 15:48

      Do you agree with everything that is termed “the earliest Christian traditions”?

      What I have done here represents an effort to show the word of God is correct. Revelation 12 gives two 3 1/2 year periods when God’s people would be protected. The first 3 1/2 year period represents Jesus’ ministry, and he claimed in his prayer to the Father (John 17) that he had kept safe all whom the Father had given him. Acts 1-7 represents the second 3 1/2 period. Although there was persecution during this period, no believer was killed until Stephen. The text implies (if compared with Revelation 12) that Stephen didn’t die until 3 1/2 years after Jesus’ resurrection.

      So far, Jared, you have denied everything I claim, but in your comments you offer no proof of your claims. I find that telling.

      Lord bless you as you study his word.

        Doctrinally no, but form my Christmas research I think they got dates pretty right.

        The Woman in Revelation 12 is Israel, the Church is The Man-Child.

         
        • Eddie

          October 11, 2015 at 20:05

          According to what I have found, they disagree on some dates. For example Irenaeus believed Jesus wasn’t crucified until after he was 40 years old. Papias thought the Apostle John wrote near his time (or near the end of the 1st century). Clement of Alexandria believed all the books of the New Testament were written between the reigns of Tiberius and Nero.

          Concerning the book of Revelation, we agree that the woman is Israel, but how could the man child be the Church? Paul speaks of the Church as the **bride** of Christ. The man-child is supposed to rule all nations with a rod of iron and was caught up to God’s throne (Revelation 12:5). This isn’t the Church; it’s Christ.

          Moreover, Jesus says that he saw Satan cast down from heaven after the 70 returned from their mission (Luke 10:18). Revelation 12:9 says that Satan was cast out of heaven just after a battle fought in the heavenlies. How often must Satan be cast out of heaven? If he was cast out during Jesus’ ministry, who let him back in to be cast out later? If he is cast out only once, then the warfare in Revelation 12 is the warfare that we fight–the warfare Paul often speaks about. It is a spiritual matter.

          The Irenaus quote is taken out of context. He did actually think Jesus was more then 30.

          The WOman of Revelation 12 is a mother not a Bride.

          October 13, 2015 at 08:18

          If you believe Irenaus is taken out of context, quote the text and show where it has been abused. However, just because **you** say it is out of context, doesn’t make it so. :-)

          You need to read my reply to you again. I agree with you that the woman was “Israel” — the mother of the man-child. **You** claimed the man-child was the bride. I disagreed and showed that Paul shows the bride to be the Church. The Man-child, according to Revelation 12:5 was placed upon the throne of God and was to rule all nations. The Church is never invited to sit upon the throne of God. Therefore, the man-child **must** be Jesus.

          Concerning your war in heaven, or perhaps I should say “several” wars in heaven, you don’t support it well. If Revelation 12:9 dates to Christ’s ministry (as I believe it does), then it cannot be used to say Satan is still in heaven. Your explanation of Luke 18:10 that Jesus is actually uttering a “future” prophecy cannot be taken seriously, because you don’t support that view. You simply say it is so (as though in doing so you have the power to make it so). Both your Isaiah 21 and Isaiah 53 examples fail, because Isaiah 21 is declared a vision (verse-2), and Isaiah 53 claims “he shall grow up” (verse-2). The context of Jesus’ remark is the return of the 70 and their claim that the spiritual world is subject to them (all in the present). You cannot declare something future, simply because you want it to be so.

          His other statement on Chronology show he placed the nativity in 2 BC and the Crucifixion in 33 at the latest.

          The Church is promised to Rule with a Rod Iron also. I provided you a link to where I layed out my Man-Child view. It does not Contradict the Church also being the Bride, different parts of Revelation use different symbols.

          October 13, 2015 at 17:19

          Concerning Irenaeus on chronology, In Demonstration (74) he says: “For Herod the king of the Jews and Pontius Pilate, the governor of Claudius Caesar, came together and condemned Him to be crucified.” By naming King Herod (Agrippa) and Claudius Caesar he makes Jesus to be about 44-45 years old at his death. He is clearly wrong, but this demonstrates the need for care in quoting the early Church Fathers. While their testimony is valuable for many reasons, chronology is not one of them.

          We may have been promised to rule with Christ on his throne (the Messianic Throne of Revelation 3) but we are not by any stretch of the imagination invited to rule from the throne of God (the Father) with whom Jesus does sit (Revelation 22). Revelation 12:5 has the man-child being caught up to heaven (Jesus was caught up to heaven–not us) and sitting with God on his throne. That’s not the Church, my friend, that’s Jesus.

          October 13, 2015 at 23:08

          He knew full well Pilate ceased to be Governor in 37 AD. Claudius was also one of Tibeirus’s names and by Herod he likely meant Antipas.

          Revelation 12 does NOT put the Man Child on the Throne, it just says he brought to the vicinity of the Throne, we clearly see Believers in the Throne Room in Revelation 15.

          October 14, 2015 at 07:02

          I quoted what Irenaeus wrote. You tell us what was on Irenaeus’ mind. The proof of what I claim is in quoting his works. The proof of what you claim is where? …reading his thoughts?

          Concerning using the name “Claudius” for Tiberius, how could anyone be understood when writing in history if they didn’t use the king’s popular name? I have a middle name, but if someone wrote about me using my middle name, not even my family would know the things said concerned me. You are reaching, my friend. You have no real reply to this. Irenaeus was clearly in error, as he was about Jesus being over 40 when he died.

          Concerning Revelation 12:5, where does it say that the Church will be caught up to God? Where does it say in scripture that the Church will be caught up to the “vicinity” (your claim) of his throne? Where does it say that the Church will rule all nations? While I grant you that the Church will rule, it receives its authority from Christ who sits on the throne. Any authority the Church has, it receives from him. Nothing is prophesied of the Church ruling with a rod of iron. If I’m wrong, quote the verse. On the other hand, the Messiah (the Son of God) will rule the nations with a rod of iron (Psalm 2:8-9).

          Claudius was the main family name of the entire dynasty. It’s modern perception mainly the individualizes the names.

          The preivous refrenc ein Rveleation to ruling wiht a Rod of Iron was directed ot the Church?

          The Greek text says the Man Child was Caught Up, Harpatzo, that word can never apply to Jesus Ascension because it implies someone was in control of it.

          If the Man-Child is Jesus the Woman certainly can’t be His Bride, she’s his Mother.

          October 15, 2015 at 08:13

          Why do historians like Josephus refer to the Caesars by the names we know them?

          As I said in my previous reply, I grant you that the Church will rule–BUT–that authority to rule will be given to us by Christ. He already has that authority, and he (not us) was caught up to heaven, and he (not us) sits upon the throne of God. Revelation 12:5 claims the man-child was a) caught up to heaven b) is at least in the vicinity of God’s throne. Where does scripture put us in either of these places?

          Concerning the Greek text, why can’t harpazo (G726) apply to Jesus? Is it because **you** say it can’t? How is the word epairo (G1869 — used in Acts 1:9 of Jesus’ ascension) any different? To be ‘lifted up’ implies it was done by someone else. Moreover, the word hupolambano (G5274) is used of the ‘cloud’ that took Jesus away (Acts 1:9). Was this by his power or the power of another. It implies another power was in play. Your logic is not sound.

          Concerning the woman and the man-child, my friend, you don’t seem to be reading my replies in context. I’ve already agreed with you that the woman in Revelation 12 is Israel. I never claimed this woman was the wife of the man-child. What I did say was that in another text Paul says the **church** is the bride of Christ, whom I conclude is the man-child–that is, Christ is the man-child, and the **church** is the bride (according to Paul).

          October 15, 2015 at 16:41

          Because Harpatzo means someone else is in Contorl, that’s why It’s trnalsated “Caught Up” and “Raptured” and terms like that, they imply a lack of control.

          We are the Bride and the Man Child, just as how Jesus is symbolically represented changes in different verses so does The Church.

          Reading thoruhg Rveelaiton on it’s own, the last Reference before Chapter 12 to a Rod of Orion was Jesus Promise to Thyatira.

          Through out our Authority comes from Christ is irrelevant, Christ’s comes from The Father.

           
        • Eddie

          October 15, 2015 at 18:24

          The Greek word harpazo (G726) is used just as you claim above. We agree as to its meaning, but we disagree as to its application. You claim it applies to the church and cannot apply to Christ, because someone else is in control. Yet, Jesus says of himself: “The Son can do nothing of himself…” (John 5:19) and “I can of my own self do nothing…” (John 5:30) “…but the Father that dwells in me, he does the works (John 14:10). Therefore, your argument concerning harpazp is moot. Jesus was caught up to heaven by the power of the Father.

          On the other hand, **you** have not shown in Scripture how we (the Church) are caught up to heaven to the ‘vicinity’ of the throne of God. I asked you to support you claim with scripture, and you failed to do so.

          Nowhere in Scripture is the church described as the man-child. You have no support for your claim–at least not in the word of God.

          Concerning ruling with a rod of iron, in Psalm 2:9 it has to do specifically with the Son of God, the Messiah. In Revelation 19:15 it has to do with the one called “The Word of God” and the “King of kings and Lord of lords” — again the Messiah. In Revelation 12:5 it has to do with the man-child who was **born** to rule all nations, no implication is offered that this one had at one time rebelled, or needed to be saved–rather he was **born** to rule all nations. In Revelation 2:27 it has to do with those who have overcome and does the same works as the Son of God (has absolutely nothing to do with being **born** into the job). Your argument that Revelation 12:5 refers to Revelation 2:27, and the man-child is the Church has absolutely no foundation.

          Concerning our authority coming from Christ being irreverent because Christ’s authority comes from the Father, I fail to see how you have made your argument here. You have not supported anything you have claimed with Scripture. Everything you claim seems to be done by your own authority. In other words, it is so, because you say it is so. I am unpersuaded by such an argument. Have a good day, my friend.

    Jesus warned the scribes and pharisees that blasphemy against Messiah would be forgivable but blasphemy against the Holy Sprit would not be forgivable. The modern tendency is to incorrectly individualize and personalize this warning — e.g. “have I comitted the unpardonable sin?” — but the warning was to the nation of Israel (God’s covenant people at the time) with respect to the coming time when God would bring final judgement on the nation of Israel for rejecting the New Covenant. This interpretation fits with your excellent presentation regarding Stephen’s death marking Israel’s official rejection (blasphemy) of the Holy Spirit. Or to state it differently — “Israel’s official rejection of the New Covenant.

      Bill, thanks for reading and for your excellent comment. To tell you the truth, I had been guilty of individualizing the warning too, but in a different way. Your understanding fits best, in my opinion. It was a warning for the nation, and not the individual. Excellent! I missed that. Thank you very much.
