学习丹尼尔，似乎是“圣经”教导“那行毁坏可憎的”是一个预言，是必须履行的3倍。 此外，它似乎圣经的教导，“时间，时间，一半的时间”（或3.5年，2260天，42个月）是要完成3次或3种方式。 此外，有一个1150或2300天期间完成一次。 而且也有1290和1335天期间完成一次。
1150和2300天时间分别在165 BC和162 BC马加履行，安提阿哥四。
首次实现了“时间，时间，和一半的时间”，在3.5年的围困和摧毁耶路撒冷，大约在公元70年。 接下来的两“的时代，时间，半年时间”fulfillments，在启示录。 它们是：
1。 管理局野兽为42个月，这也是相同的1260天的两名证人宣讲。 这3.5年期间，似乎也成为上半年的丹尼尔70周。
2。 这一周的下半年，似乎为3.5字面天，在这两个证人是死在街头。 （这与“那些日子将缩短”马特24和马克13。）
布赖恩Huie的研究： http://www.herealittletherealittle.net/index.cfm?page_name=Daniel11 （这是必不可少的阅读，作为完成或接近完成，在过去的11丹尼尔的履行将表明，小至没有它是在结束时间完成的最重要的。）
“其中之一是提出了一个小喇叭，打蜡超过伟大，向南，向东，朝着愉快的[土地]。 它打蜡很大，甚至主机的天堂;垂下[一些]的主机和星星在地上，并呼吁他们盖章。 是啊，他放大[自己]即使主机王子，和他的日常[牺牲]被带走，和他的避难所，是投下去。

这“2300晚上和早晨”不是一个3.5年完成，因为这将圣经是2260天。 这是一个无论是2300天期间（1150晚上加1150早上，分隔），或1150天（2300 /晚上+早上）。
“安提阿哥四世的军队亵渎圣殿和停止日常的牺牲 。 Kislev在12月168公元前15日，叙利亚人燔祭在寺庙的祭坛上建造了一个异教的祭坛，并放置在它的宙斯匹阿斯的形象。 十天后，Kislev 25，提供猪的肉是宙斯的祭坛上。 “

8于丹，2300天，1150天被提及。 马加比“成立后不久的憎恶，对安提阿哥伊暴力反抗的开始。 开始憎恶被放置后不长，这是提到是在马加章2.In简短的详细，这个起义是什么直接导致重新致力于寺庙和祭坛Kislev 165年的第 25届马加， 3年后的憎恶在祭坛上，Kislev公元前168年的第 25届。 这个故事是在马加比4。 http://www.jacsweb.org/spirituality-chanukah.html详细
1150天会适合当憎恶被放置一段时间，寺庙和庇护时被清洗。 犹太历的工作，是一个不规则的混乱一块 http://www.jewfaq.org/calendar.htm 。 ，但考虑到多年的飞跃，在其中添加一个额外的一个月后，通过在这3年的1150天似乎相当不错的工作。 ，因此这是实现1150天，直到圣殿清洗。
2300天可能的解释似乎也有显著的履行，这是值得注意的。 有时在公元前164安提阿哥四去世后，和其他统治者接管莱西阿斯一样，。 这是实际约2300天，或超过6年的一个小安提阿哥伊，在伯撒迦利亚战役发生后，憎恶。 这对莱西阿斯的战斗是显着的，因为“在他离开之前，他同意达成妥协，允许犹太人按照他们的习俗和崇拜， 因为他们高兴。“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Beth_Zechariah
“因此，现在让我们与这些人交朋友，并与他们的和平，并与他们的国家; 并承诺与他们，他们生活后，他们的法律，因为他们之前： 他们因此感到不满，并已完成所有这些事情，因为我们取消了他们的法律 。 所以国王和诸侯的内容：何故，他对他们发送到和平;他们接受其中。 国王和诸侯也做出了对他们的誓言：于是他们去强抱“1 MACC 6:58-61 。
“如恶对公约不得损坏flatteries：但知道他们的神的人应强，做[漏洞]。 人民之间的理解应当责成很多：但他们倒在刀下，火焰，圈养和破坏，[许多]天 。 [一些]了解他们应下降，试戴，要清除，[他们]白色，[即使]结束时间：因为它是一个指定的时间“丹11:33-35
正在尝试和清除的诗句，是指从马加起耶稣时代，犹太人仍然在外国统治，军事压迫与当时最困扰。 （“指定时间”在这里也可能是指70 周 。）
第一，所以那行毁坏可憎的履行是在公元前168年，并实现1150和2300天，分别在165 BC和162 BC。
“因此，了解和理解，戒律恢复和建立耶路撒冷献给弥赛亚王子提出应七个星期，和六十两个星期：街道应重新建造，墙，甚至在焦急倍。 六十两个星期后，应弥赛亚被切断钉在十字架上，但不是为自己... ...“丹9:25-26
“当时，迈克尔应站起来，伟大的王子站在你的人的儿子看 ” -丹12:1
第一件事就是迈克尔站起来。 冯12:1-12在这同一事件的详细得多。 它描述了在天上的战争之间的天使，耶稣升天后，复活后（30岁，AD）。 当迈克尔“站起来”这意味着他去天堂，上帝的天使军队的领导者，对撒旦作战，并站在神的子民。
“1的一大标志出现在天上：一个女人身披太阳，月亮在她的脚，并在她的头十二星的花环2然后与孩子，她哭了，在劳动和疼痛给。出生3和另一个迹象出现在天上：看哪，一个伟大的，火热的红龙，七头十角，和七个冠冕在他头上4他的尾巴提请天上的星辰的三分之一，并把他们的地球。 和龙站在面前的女子，准备生出，只要它出生吞吃她的孩子。5 谁是统治与所有国家的铁棍，她生了一个男孩 。 和她的孩子赶上了上帝和他的王位。 6妇人逃到旷野，在那里她由神所预备的地方，他们应该喂她有一千一百六十天。
（7 和战争的爆发，在天上：迈克尔和他的使者与龙的战斗，和龙和他的使者战斗，但他们没有获胜，也不是一个地方一个在天上再为他们找到[9所以 。 投出大龙，古蛇，名叫魔鬼，又叫撒但，谁欺骗了整个世界，他是投在地上，和他的使者与他共投出10然后，我听到一个响亮的声音在天上说。 ，“现在的救恩，和实力，和我们神的国度，并他基督的力量来为我们的弟兄们，指责他们在我们神面前昼夜控告者，已经投下去。 11他们克服他羔羊的血和他们的证词的字，他们不爱自己的生命的死亡。12因此飘柔，天哪，和你住在他们的！祸了地球的居民和海为魔鬼下来给你，有很大的愤怒，因为他知道，他有一个很短的时间... ...）“ -冯12
我们可以知道这段话是历史的，男孩出生的人会排除与所有国家的铁棍是耶稣基督（启19:15），和他被抓了上帝和他的宝座是耶稣升天基督，发生后复活。 冯12:1-6是一个总结，和冯12:7-17 5和6节之间所包含的事件，因此上面的括号提供了更多的细节。
下一步秩序，仍然在5和6节之间的事件括号，冯12:13-16发生。 在撒旦攻击“女人”。 这段话，是3.5年的时间内完成。 在12版的“时间，时间，和半年的时间”，在14节是同一时期，作为“1260天”中提到，在第6节简易程序之前。
, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth .)” -Rev 12 “（... ... 13时，龙见，他已转换为地球，他遭受迫害的女子，生下男孩。14，但女人是一个伟大的鹰两翼，她可能飞入旷野她的地方，在那里她是时间和时间和半时间的滋养，从蛇的存在，15，所以蛇的嘴里喷 出的水像洪水后的女人，他 可能会导致她进行远离洪水。16但地球帮助的女人，和地球开其口， 龙嘴里喷 出的洪水吞噬 。）“冯12
这个“女人”是指弥赛亚的犹太人，原始的基督教教堂，在耶路撒冷，他们逃离并没有逃脱公元70年的围困。 大量的历史信息，详细说明这是发现这里的文章 ：http://www.preteristarchive.com/StudyArchive/p/pella-flight.html（必读）
基督徒开始离开耶路撒冷早66-67公元。 66 AD一般Cestius鸡带来了罗马军团到耶路撒冷试图征服犹太起义开始。 他的军团，与他们进行标准或拉奎拉的罗马军团，这是一个小型的鹰雕像通常进行高一棒。 据记载，Cestius退出他在耶路撒冷的攻击，尽管它已经获得了成功，和左。 （ http://www.josephus.org/warChronology2.htm ）鹰拉奎拉在他的军团撤退，他们被抓获的以色列犹太势力，这是一个军团的耻辱。
“当你们看见耶路撒冷的军队包围了，然后知道 苍凉之近 。 然后让他们在犹太逃到山上，让他们在它的中间离开了，不要让他们在国家进入其中。 对于这些复仇的日子里，这是写的所有的事情可能会实现 。“
不同一般，维斯帕先，被送回67公元军团是由他的儿子提图斯，开始征服该地区，并最终摧毁耶路撒冷在公元70年加入。 这一段时间，一般符合3.5年或1260天。 因为基督徒以前逃离了耶路撒冷，主要是佩拉，“女人”被安全地保存在旷野从龙。 龙，撒旦攻击耶路撒冷的基督教教堂，但Cestius离开，他们离开的时候，前耶路撒冷再次受到攻击。
这些事件的启示12但以理书第九章中提到的相同的事件。 让我们看看它全面又如何能读第1次履行。 请注意，在12和冯丹9通道“洪水”，也“可憎的翅膀”和“鹰”的类似条款：
, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured [like water/flood] out on the desolate.)” -Dan 9 “因此，了解和理解，提出恢复和建立耶路撒冷献给弥赛亚王子[应]七个星期，以及六十两个星期的诫命：街道应重新建造，并在墙上，即使在多事之秋，六十两个星期后应弥赛亚被切断，但不是为自己和人民的王子，自[撒旦，“王子”这个世界]应销毁城市和圣所 。 结束[应]与洪水 ，和你们结束战争荒芜确定（他[耶稣的弥赛亚]应确认与许多一周[逾越节一周]盟约：和在中一周[耶稣钉在十字架上，他应引起牺牲和奉献停止[没有其他更多的牺牲，被撕裂的面纱，和可憎[老鹰标准罗马军团的翅膀应提图斯] 谁使荒凉甚至直到完善，这是确定的，是像水/出荒凉的洪水]。 浇 ）“丹9
“现在罗马，进入城市的煽动性飞行后，根据燃烧的圣房子本身，和所有的建筑物躺在这一轮，带来了他们的少尉到寺庙 ，他们对东门;他们献祭给他们，有他们的喜悦最大的赞誉提图斯规划，“ 。
“应时间的麻烦，如从来都不是因为有一个民族，VEN发送到那个时候。 而当时你的人，应交付，每一位被发现在书上所写之一。那些在地球上的尘土睡眠的许多人清醒，一些永恒的生命，一些羞耻和永恒的蔑视 。3的是明智的应闪耀苍穹的亮度一样，许多像星星义，直到永远。“丹12:2-3
3.5年的围困和破坏在公元70耶路撒冷是以色列的一个可怕的时间，如没有之前那么，到那个时候。 基督徒离开城市，并逃脱了 - 这些丹尼尔的“人谁就会被交付”，其名称是在生命册的书面 - 的基督徒，犹太人转换是谁知道到逃离耶路撒冷，为耶稣曾警告他们这样做。 他们逃离，冯12和历史记录。
然后一个真正的声明是对未来的，有些人会去永恒的生命和一些蔑视。 说到在未来的这些基督教徒，他们会像星星一样闪耀，导致许多正气。 换句话说，大抉择，面对犹太人在耶稣部是突出的，和选择的2个可能的结果。 这之后，耶稣'部早期教会的时间是宣扬福音时被许多犹太人，其中包括有关复活的信息。 耶稣有预测前近40年来，可能有助于一些犹太人在这个时候成为基督徒的寺庙的破坏。
丹尼尔问时将这些奇迹的结束，答案是3.5年。 “次，时间，以及一半的时间”或3.5丹12年，第一完成，是指在公元70年罗马的围困和摧毁耶路撒冷，这是为1260天的女人是保持在REV的安全确认12。 但因为天使在这里提到的“结束时间”，这表明将有（至少）的第二个实现“时间，时间，半年时间”。
冯12月底，撒旦去对基督徒的战争，这场战争跨越一个时间段，从70AD，至今，近2000多年的历史，是覆盖在冯12:17。 本章详细介绍了正在发生的事情与天使的历史和预言，在一定程度上落后的场面，因此它很恰当导致成牧师13的事件，这也是关于一个天使，野兽，谁取走出监狱深渊/无底洞/ Tartaros。 这是下了大变化，大事件，当涉及到堕落的天使。
“然后，我想知道的关于第四兽，这是所有的人从不同，与铁和铜牌，这吞噬指甲它的牙齿极为可怕的，真相，打破件，践踏它的脚残留 ; 20和它的头十角上，和其他角 里面传来了，在这之前三个下跌，那就是喇叭了眼睛和一张嘴说话浮夸的话，其外观比他的同伴 ，21“我是看着;相同的角是对圣人的战争， 当时对他们，22天，直到古代，判断是赞成至高圣人的，而且时间来到圣人拥有的王国 。
23“因此，他说：”第四兽应是一个地球上，应不同于所有其他王国的第四王国，并应吞噬整个地球，践踏它，打碎它 24十角是十王是谁 。 应来自这个王国。 而另一起来后，他们应;他应首当其冲不同，应制服三大天王25 他将至高发言反对浮夸的话 ，迫害[ D ]圣人的最高级，并应打算改变时间和法律。 圣人应考虑到他的手一时间，时间和半时间。26'，但法院应坐下，他们带走了他的统治，它永远消耗和破坏 。27王国和统治， 下整个天堂王国的伟大，应当给予的人，最高级的圣人 。 他的王国是一个永恒的国度，所有领土应服务和服从他。“丹7
“然后，我[ 1 ]站在海沙。 我又看见一个兽海上升，有七头十角， 并[ b ]和他的牛角十个冠冕，他的头和亵渎神的名，2现在的兽，我看到像豹 ，他脚像英尺 熊，和他的口像狮子的口 。 龙给了他自己的权力，他的王位，和极大的权威。3， 我看到他的头之一，如果它已经身受重伤，他的致命伤口愈合。 和全世界惊叹，跟着兽4所以他们崇拜的龙兽是谁给的权力;和他们拜兽说，“像兽是谁？ 是谁能够使他的战争吗？ “

这第一个未来“的时代，时间和一半的时间”，从经文履行丹尼尔9 70 周 （将履行在未来的第二次“半周”是相同的，除了它是如何大约公元70年完成，看到前9丹解释）。 丹尼尔7和启示13都是指同一时期上半年丹尼尔9 70 周 。
Dan 9:27 “他应确认该公约与许多为一个星期，在一周的中间 ，他应造成的牺牲和奉献停止， 和可憎overspreading他[它]荒凉，甚至直到圆满 ， 即确定应浇后的荒凉。“丹9:27
“但是离开了法庭庙外，并无法衡量它，因为它已经给外邦人。 他们脚下踏圣城四十两个月 。3，我会给我那两个见证人的权力，他们将预言一千一百六十天，穿在麻布。“这是两棵橄榄树 ， 站在神前两个灯台，并[ b] 地球 5，如果有人想伤害他们，从他们的口中消防收益并吃掉他们的敌人 。 - Rev 11 如果有人想伤害他们，他必须以这种方式杀死这些有权力关闭天上无雨，使他们的预言天;和他们对水域的权力，把他们血液，并罢工地球，所有的瘟疫往往作为他们的愿望7当他们完成他们的证词，兽上升无底洞会作出对他们的战争，战胜他们，杀死他们。8他们的尸体将在说谎精神上是所谓的伟大的城市街道所多瑪和埃及，也是我们的[ C ]主被钉在十字架上的民族，部落，舌头，和国家的 9然后从会看到他们的尸体三和半天 ，和不允许的研究[ D他们的尸体到坟墓。10那些住在地球上，他们感到欣喜，作乐，互相送礼物，因为这两位先知的折磨那些住在地球上。 现在11后， 三和半天从神的生活气息进入他们，和他们站在自己的脚，和巨大的恐惧，看到他们的那些“ -冯11
野兽是指有42个月13日，冯相匹配的42个月的圣城是踩着脚下转11的权威。 这似乎是为1260天的时间，其中2名证人将预言同期。 这表明2证人预言，而野兽的权威和践踏圣城的脚下，在相同的42 month/1260天的时间内所有。
诗篇4-6指定2名证人将在冲突。 在第7节“登高”是一个动词，在过去分词的形式，很可能意味着作为一个形容词，读“升天坑”或“升坑”，这意味着到指定谈到这野兽，而不是他登顶的时机。 (Especially as the 5 th Trumpet specifies the timing of his ascent, Rev 11 cannot be specifying the Beast ascends at this time during the 6 th Trumpet – as he already ascended past tense at this point.) As such the 42 months of the Beast and 1260 days of the two witnesses running parallel seems to be the point of the use of both numbers in verses 2-3, making this use to not be redundant.
And so Daniel 7, Revelation 11 and 13, and the second fulfillment (first future fulfillment) of Daniel 12 “times, time, and half a time”, all refer to the first half of the 70 th week of Daniel 9. And this is the same time in which both the Beast is in authority and the 2 witnesses are prophesying as the outer court is trampled underfoot by the gentiles, and so also the Beast.
The third “times, time, and half a time” fulfillment (second future fulfillment) is with the second half of the 70 th week of Daniel. The second half of the 70 th week of Daniel is the 3.5 actual days in which the 2 witnesses lie dead in the streets, while the first half of the week is definitely the 3.5 years/ 1260 days that they prophesy.
As the 42 months and 1260 days run co-currently, the only other “times, time, and half a time” period found specified in Revelation is the 3.5 days the 2 witnesses lie dead. If the prophesying of the 2 witnesses for 1260 days is tied to the 70 th week at all, then the days they lie dead must also factor into the 70 th week. Besides these points, the scene portrayed in Rev 10 clearly references back to the scene in Dan 12 of the angel, standing by the water and the land, who swears by Him in heaven, that it will be for “times, time, and half a time”.
“Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. And [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? 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 sware by him that liveth for ever that [it shall be] for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these [things] shall be finished .” Dan 12:5-7
“And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be delay no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets .” Rev 10:5-7
And this Rev 10 reference back to Dan 12 is soon followed, also in the 6 th Trumpet section, by the co-current 42 month/1260 day period, and the 3.5 day period. The angel swore by God that it would be for “times, time, and half a time”. This 3.5 number is half of a week, and half of the 70 th week here. The first half of the 70 th week is 3.5 years, and the second half is 3.5 days.
Jesus also specified in Matt 24 and Mark 13 that “those days would be shortened”, and if this is not the shortening of those days, then what is? Surely, to be shortened, something must have first have been longer. It is well understood that each week in Daniel 9 is “supposed” to represent 7 years, and this is what is anticipated. But if the second half of the “week” is shortened to 3.5 days, this would better prophetically explain why these 7 year periods were called “weeks” in the first place. If God knew in the end He would shorten the 3.5 years of the 70 th 7-year period to only 3.5 days, it explains why He called these “weeks” in the first place.
The last abomination that makes desolation is mentioned in Dan 9, which seems to start after the middle of the 70 th week. This is the 3 rd fulfillment of the abomination of desolation. It is after the middle of this week that the abomination of desolation starts, and according to Revelation, the middle of the week would seem to coincide with the 2 witnesses being killed. Let's go through Dan 9:25-27 in full, again.
“Know therefore and understand, [that] from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince [shall be] seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. [from the command to rebuild to time of Jesus] And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: [Jesus Christ crucified, then skip thousands of years]
and the people of the prince that shall come [the Beast and his armies] shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof [shall be] with a flood [Rev 14:20 winepress of wrath of God, blood to horses bridle 200 miles], and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
(And he [the Beast] shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the middle of the week [death of 2 witnesses] he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation [of the 2 witnesses] to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations [of the Beast in the temple], he shall make [it] desolate , even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured [in Revelation bowls of wrath of God poured out] upon the desolate.)” Dan 9:25-27
And so the prophecy of Daniel 9 is fulfilled a second time in full. The last abomination of desolation seems to be fulfilled in Rev 13, in the Beast being in the temple, himself worshipped as “god”, and also the Beast's image being worshipped.
“ 5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue [ c ] for forty-two months . 6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name , His tabernacle , and those who dwell in heaven. 7 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast , saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?… And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him , whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world… And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Rev 13:4-8,12-15
The temple as the location isn't mentioned above, but this becomes clear looking at 2nd Thessalonians.
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God , showing himself that he is God.” 2Th 2:3-4
The Beast will be in the temple, and he himself will be the abomination that causes desolation (though the Beast's image, if in the temple, may also be part of the abomination). Apparently after the 2 witnesses are killed in the middle of the week, the Beast, who himself is the abomination of desolation, enters into the temple and is worshipped, for the 3.5 days that are the second half of the 70 th week of Daniel. After the end of the 3.5 days, and the abomination of desolation event, the end of the 70 th week, Daniel 9 indicates there will be “pouring” out (matching the bowls of wrath in Revelation) and desolation.
And so the “times, time, and half a time” period of Daniel 12 is fulfilled twice in Revelation. First by the Beast in Dan 7, Rev 13 and Rev 11, during the 42 months (which is also the 1260 days of the 2 witnesses). This is the first half of the 70 th week of Daniel 9. The second half of the 70 th week of Daniel 9 is literally 3.5 days in which the two witnesses in Rev 11 lay dead. These are the second and third fulfillments of the “times, time, and half a time” periods, the first is 3.5 years and the second is 3.5 days. And the third fulfillment of the abomination of desolation in Dan 9 (also in Matt 24 and Mark 13) corresponds to the Beast himself being worshipped in the temple as “god”, as is described in Rev 13 and 2 Thes 2.
And so this seems to cover all 3 of the instances of the “times, time, and half a time” periods, as well as the one 1150/2300 day time period, and all the times the abomination of desolation is mentioned in the Bible (as far as I know).
This leaves the 1290 day and 1335 day periods. To determine where these days fit into a timeline, Dan 12 indicates that the “abomination of desolation” is an event marker.
“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. Blessed [is] he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.” - Dan 12:11-12
If the 3.5 days the two witnesses lie dead is the second half of the 70 th week of Daniel, then the 70 th week ends when those 3.5 days are completed. Daniel 9 indicates it is in the second half of the 70 th week when the abomination of desolation occurs – the Beast entering the temple to be worshipped as the 2 witnesses lie dead for 3.5 literal days. And Daniel 9 indicates that soon after this there will be “pouring”, of the bowls of wrath, and Jesus Christ will soon return. So it seems unlikely that the 1290 days could be just starting in the middle of the 70 th week, which only has 3.5 days to it, but rather the 1290 days must start prior.
As someone will be blessed to make it to the 1335 th day, it makes sense that this day is placed after Jesus Christ has returned, and not while the reign of the Beast or wrath of God is still ongoing. The abomination of desolation, the Beast being worshipped in the temple, takes place after the middle of the 70 th week, after the Beast has been in authority for 42 months already. Shortly after the Beast enters the temple, the abomination during the 3.5 days, then the 70 th week is over. Thus the 1290 days MUST refer to the time period prior to when the Beast enters the temple to be worshipped, as there are only 3.5 days to the second half of the 70 th week of Daniel: and then the bowls of wrath are poured and Jesus returns. As such it makes sense that in Dan 12:11-12, the “daily sacrifice” marks the beginning of the 1290 days, and the “abomination set up” (Beast in the temple) marks the end of the 1290 days. This would mean that, after the Beast/abomination is worshipped in the temple, there is after that, at most, a 45 day window before Jesus will have returned, and people will be blessed to have made it to the 1335 th day. As the Beast is in power for 1260 days prior to entering the temple as the abomination himself, this means that the 1290 days goes back to 30 days prior to when the Beast comes into authority. And so 30 days before the Beast enters into his 42 months of authority, the “daily sacrifices” stop.
It should also be noted that the sacrifices mentioned in Dan 9:27 which stop during the specified middle of the week must refer to “sacrifices and oblations” which are being offered by the two witnesses, which cease when they die in the middle of the week, and this is not the same as the “daily sacrifice” in Dan 12:11-12. The “daily sacrifice” in Daniel 12 must refer to a daily sacrifice (likely of the Jews) which stops 30 days before the Beast's covenant is made with many. Then the Beast is in authority for 42 months, the first half of the 70 th week. When the “sacrifices and oblations” of Dan 9 stop in the middle of the week, it must refer to the activities of the 2 witnesses, who the Beast kills precisely in the middle of the week.
As Revelation 12 describes the first half of the 70 th week as 3.5 years, and the second half as 3.5 days, and the Beast and two witnesses being active at the same time, then the sacrifices and oblations which stop in the middle of the week must relate to the 2 witnesses, whose death marks the middle of the 70 th week. The same sacrifices stopping cannot mark the beginning of the first half of the 70 th week, and also the beginning of the middle of the 70 th week. So two separate sacrifices must be being mentioned: Dan 12 mentions the end of the “daily sacrifice” 30 days prior to the rise of the Beast into power (his 42 months), and Dan 9 mentions the end of the “sacrifices and oblations” as the two witnesses are killed (end of their 1260 days and also ~the Beast's 42 months), which marks the middle of the 70 th week.
(This can be seen on the timeline here: http://stopalienabduction.com/RevelationTimelineMed.jpg )
This is entirely allowable if the stop of the “daily sacrifices” marks the beginning of the 1290 days, and the “abomination of desolation” marks the end of the 1290 days.
“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.” Dan 12:11
Put in order of the Hebrew this reads more closely, “Now after the time sacrifice taken away daily, and give the abomination that makes desolation, days 1290” . I don't see anything there that forbids the sacrifice being the starting point and the abomination being the ending point of the 1290 days (and compare 2 Chron 25:27 translation “from-time, after-time” וּמֵעֵת ). Also looking at the Greek, it reads in order, “and from the time the regular sacrifice is abolished, and the giving abomination making desolation, days 1290” . I don't see anything in the Greek that forbids this interpretation either.
But it is the placement of the time of the abomination of desolation, the Beast entering the temple, which occurs only 3.5 days before the 70 th week ends, which necessitates that the 1290 days must be coming to a close at this point, and not just beginning, necessitating the 1290 days must begin with the sacrifices stopping and end with the abomination of desolation.
Parallel in the Gospels and Daniel of the Abomination of Desolation
Especially pertaining to the 70 AD fulfillment of the abomination of desolation, and the future fulfillment of the same, next we are going to see how all this lines up with the prophecies of Jesus pertaining to the abomination of desolation in the Gospels.
In Matt 24, Mark 13, and in Luke 21, Jesus mentions the abomination of desolation.
Jesus first says in these 3 passages that not one stone would left upon another of the Temple. Then the disciples ask Jesus these particular questions:
“Teacher, when therefore will these things happen and what will be the sign when these things are about to take place?” (Luke 21)
“Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign when all these things are going to be fulfilled?” (Mark 13)
“”Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” (Matt 24)
In Matt 24 and Mark 13, Jesus specifically references to “the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel” . In Luke 21 Jesus does not mention Daniel, but says, “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that nigh is its desolation .” This word “desolation” is “eremosis” (2050) which is used only 3x in the New Testament, and the other 2x are in Matt 24 and Mark 13 in the phrase “the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel”.
In each Gospel the disciples are recorded to have asked Jesus different questions. As such, in each Gospel the disciples receive slightly different answers, which match the particular questions they asked. To rephrase,
Luke 21: When will the temple be destroyed, and what will be the sign this is about to happen?
Mark 13: When will the temple be destroyed, and what will be the sign when ALL these things will be Finished?
Matt 24: When will the temple be destroyed, and what will be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?
The reason that the answers are different is because the only question in common between these passages is “when will the temple be destroyed?” But the differences in the rest of the questions cause the difference in Jesus' answers to the questions.
The part of Daniel that was fulfilled in 70 AD was the Daniel 9 “abominations” and “desolations” in the first fulfillment. The Jews had already seen “the abomination of desolation” fulfilled once in the past, with Antiochus IV in 168 BC, so they understood the term. And they understood that Jesus was saying similar “abomination of desolation” events would happen again. Jesus was referring to Dan 11:31 in the context of referencing to the term “abomination of desolation” which the Jews understood from the time of the Maccabees. However, Jesus was not saying that Daniel 11 was going to be fulfilled again, as Dan 11 was already fulfilled once with Antiochus IV, and Octavius, etc. up through the death of Herod. Rather, Jesus was referring to the first fulfillment of Dan 9 “abominations”, and Himself prophesying to the people (as He was also a prophet) that “abominations” in Daniel 9 would again be an “abomination of desolation” event as had happened with Antiochus IV.
“Know therefore and understand, [that] from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince [shall be] seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come [Satan, “prince of this world”] 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.
(And he [Jesus Messiah] shall confirm the covenant with many for one week [Passover week]: and in the midst of the week [Jesus crucified] he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease [no more other sacrifices needed, the veil was torn], and on the wings of abominations [eagle standard of Roman Legion] shall be one [Titus] who makes desolate , even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured [like water] out on the desolate.)” Dan 9
Jesus was prophesying that the Daniel 9 “abominations” and “desolations” would be fulfilled with another instance of the abomination of desolation as had been seen with Antiochus – but not just once, rather, twice. And Dan 9 was not fulfilled the first time standing alone, but it was also connected to Dan 12:1-7, which gave the timeframe of “times, time, and half a time”, corresponding with the period of Roman assault against the Jews and Jerusalem. And also tied with Michael standing up in the heavenly battle which is recorded in Revelation 12, that occurred after the ascension of Jesus Christ and before 70 AD. And so Jesus was prophesying on 2 future fulfillments of Daniel 9 and 12.
In Luke 21 Daniel is not mentioned, nor is the “abomination of desolation” referenced as specifically. The question the disciples asked was ”when will these things happen [the temple be destroyed] and what will be the sign this is about to happen?”. These 2 questions combined ask for an answer predominately focused in the near future. These questions do not mention “all things being finished” nor “sign of your coming” nor “end of the age”. Jesus replies that when Jerusalem is surrounded by armies, nigh is its “desolation”, and it is time to flee. And this is matching with the Christian church fleeing Jerusalem to Pella around 66-67 AD, after seeing the Roman Legion of Cestius. Also Jesus mentions that “nigh is its desolation” hinting in reference to the eagle Aquila standard which was carried by the first Roman Legion of Cestius, and later the same thing was worshipped in the temple by the Roman Legion of Titus, and was the abomination of desolation.
Luke 21:8-24 refers to events that were fulfilled once in the past leading up to the destruction of the temple and Jerusalem in 70 AD. But Luke 21:25-28 refers to a time in the future in which the temple will be destroyed again. And also parts of Luke 21:8-24 will also repeat again in a second fulfillment in the future, but having less of an accurate tone than for their first fulfillment for the events leading up to 70 AD. (See details on past fulfillment emphasis here: http://www.catholicapologetics.info/apologetics/judaism/prophetic.htm )
In comparison, in Mark 13 the questions ask for a more extensive answer, asking more broadly for what the sign will be when “ALL these things will be Finished”. As such the answer is more balanced between the near 70AD fulfillment and the far future Revelation fulfillment: a mixture of both. Again, this is because the temple would both be destroyed in 70 AD, and will be destroyed again in the future.
In reference to Daniel, Jesus says, “But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains”.
Jesus uses a vague term “standing where it ought not”. This vague location could refer to either the Roman Legion of Cestius at Jerusalem, if coupled with the understanding in Luke that when Jerusalem was surrounded by armies, “nigh is its desolation”. OR this vague location could refer to the Beast in the temple in Revelation, if coupled with the understanding from 2 Thes 2 and Matt 24, of the abomination being in the temple or “holy place”.
Mark 13:6-18 is more predominantly focused on the first fulfillment of Daniel 9 and 12 with the events leading up to 70 AD. But Mark 13:13-18 equally seems to apply to both the past and future in focus. And Mark 13 from verse 19 on after, has a focus on the future fulfillment of Daniel 9 and 12, and the future destruction of the temple in the end times. Because Daniel 9 and 12 together told of the destruction of the temple twice in the future (at the time when Jesus was prophesying) Jesus answered with taking both fulfillments into account. In this He answered the broader question of “sign of all these things being finished” which was asked in Mark 13, but not in Luke 21. And so Jesus answered with the emphasis more balanced between the 70 AD and Revelation fulfillment, rather than the emphasis being more on the immediate 70 AD fulfillment as is in Luke 21.
In Matt 24, not 2 but 3 questions were asked, which truly required more focus on the far-future fulfillment in order to answer them, “”Tell us, when will these things happen [temple be destroyed], and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
As such Matthew 24 is focused much more on the end times second fulfillment of Daniel 9 and 12, and far less on the 70 AD fulfillment. Comparing Luke 21 as a heavy focus on the first fulfillment, with Matt 24 as a heavy focus on the second fulfillment, can show the differences more clearly. But summarily, Matt 24 is just as focused into the second future fulfillment, as Luke 21 was not but rather focused into the first 70 AD fulfillment.
Matt 24 also answers the unique question (not asked in Mark or Luke) of when the end of the age (of the Gentiles) will be, answered in Matt 24:14, then leading into events of the 70 th week in Matt 24:15. Of the 3 passages Matt 24 most closely parallels the procession of events in the book of Revelation, placing much more importance on signs of the end of the age of the Gentiles, and the 70 th week age of the Jews, and signs of Jesus' return, and also on the events preceding the final destruction of the temple. Similar to 67 AD, Jesus indicates that there will be some chance to flee Jerusalem, but in this case it is once people see the abomination enter the temple, which precedes the destruction of Jerusalem. In this case, it is the Beast entering the temple during the second half of the 70 th week, the 3.5 days while the 2 witnesses lie dead, which indicates it is the last-chance time to flee Jerusalem, before desolation comes.
“Know therefore and understand, [that] from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince [shall be] seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. [from the command to rebuild to time of Jesus] And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: [Jesus Christ crucified, then skip thousands of years] and the people of the prince that shall come [the Beast and his armies] shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof [shall be] with a flood [Rev 14:20 winepress of wrath of God, blood to horses bridle 200 miles], and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. (And he [the Beast] shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the middle of the week [death of 2 witnesses] he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation [of the 2 witnesses] to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations [of the Beast in the temple], he shall make [it] desolate , even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured [in Revelation bowls of wrath of God poured out] upon the desolate.)” Dan 9
Again, Daniel 9 is connected to Daniel 12 in their second fulfillment.
The first thing that happens in Daniel 12 is that Michael stands up. Rev 12:7 is the only time Michael is mentioned by name in Revelation, but this event was already fulfilled in the first fulfillment, historically between 33-70AD in the heavenly angelic war. But this is not the only time in Revelation in which Michael will play an important role, even though he is not mentioned by name. Michael is the archangel, and the only angel who is ever called “the archangel” in the Bible. And we are told specifically that the archangel, Michael, will sound the last trumpet, if we cross-reference 1 Thessalonians with 1 Corinthians.
“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 not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air , and so we shall always be with the Lord.” 1 Thes 4:15-17
“Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will 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 imperishable, and we will be changed .” 1 Cor 15:51-52
From these two verses it can be gathered that Michael the archangel will be the angel who blows the last trumpet, which seems specified to precede the dead rising (first) and then the living being caught up in the air and changed. The last trumpet is blown in Rev 11:15,
“And the seventh angel sounded ; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” Rev 11:15
This seventh angel who blows the seventh trumpet is Michael the archangel, and this is the second fulfillment of Michael standing up for God's people. This all also matches what Jesus said, “And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet , and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Matt 24:31
This is in a time of great trouble, as Revelation is full of great trouble, which parallels Dan 12, “And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time.” Dan 12:1
Following Michael sounding the 7 th trumpet, Dan 12:1-2 also states: “And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life” . This corresponds very well to 1 Thes 4 and 1 Cor 15, and Matt 24, which put together say the dead will be raised and the living caught up after the last trumpet sounds.
Skipping to after the millennial reign, then Dan 12 also details,
“ 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.” And this parallels with the Judgment and the Second Resurrection detailed in Rev 20.
Altogether, all of Dan 12 corresponds to the second fulfillment of Daniel 9. The rest of Dan 12 gives the “times, time, and half a time” and the 1290 and 1335 days periods, and specifies the prophecies are for the last days. While Daniel 12:7 also gave the 3.5 year timeframe for the attacks on the Jews and Jerusalem of the first fulfillment in 70 AD, it also applies to the 42 months of the Beast's reign and the 3.5 days of the second half of the 70 th week of Daniel 9. But the 1290 and 1335 days that are mentioned are solely applicable to the second fulfillment of Daniel 9, and the time of the 70 th week in the time of the end.
“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.” Dan 12
And so in 3 of the Gospels, using the past fulfillment of Dan 11:31 of the abomination of desolation with Antiochus IV as a reference the people understood, Jesus prophesies of the first fulfillment of Daniel 9 and 12 in the time leading up to 70 AD, and also of the second fulfillment of Daniel 9 and 12 to occur in the end times and Revelation. Jesus focuses his prophesying on the first fulfillment of Daniel 9 and 12 the most in Luke 21, halfway in Mark 13, and the least in Matt 24. And Jesus focuses his prophesying on the second fulfillment of Daniel 9 and 12 the least in Luke 21, halfway in Mark 13, and the most in Matt 24.
This resolves the discrepancy of how it is that in the 70 AD fulfillment, Matt 24 does not, and Mark 13 only vaguely, line up with the events that took place, but the Luke 21 passage does match the events. The sign for people to flee Jerusalem in the 70 AD fulfillment was not them seeing the abomination in the temple as in Matt 24, because Matt 24 in this caution refers to the second fulfillment, in Revelation. But the Luke 21 warning of approaching armies did refer to the first fulfillment, and this warning is what the early Christians in Jerusalem did follow. Matt 24 is, and Mark 13 leans more, for the second fulfillment of Daniel 9 and 12, in which the abomination in the temple will be the sign to flee. But Luke 21 is more about the first fulfillment, in which armies was the sign to flee, and this also explains why Luke 21 only hints at the abomination, instead of referring to it more clearly, as the abomination came long after it would have done any good as a sign to flee in 70 AD.
I have placed these parallel passages in a chart, with the first fulfillment of Daniel 9 and 12 around the 70 AD time period in blue, the second fulfillment of Daniel 9 and 12 in the Revelation time period in red, and verses that seem to equally apply to both fulfillments in purple. Because the prophesies are to be fulfilled twice, with similar events involved leading up to both fulfillments of Daniel 9 and 12, the passages look practically identical. Really, the way to note the difference in tone is to understand that it is the QUESTIONS that were asked which define which fulfillment the passage has its emphasis on and the differences of the details in the passages, however slight. The QUESTIONS Jesus was answering define the time period the passage focuses on, not so much the details, because the details repeat both times.
Revelation Dan 9 and 12 Halfway Mixed Dan 9 and 12 70 AD Daniel 9 and 12
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. 23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
5 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: 6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. 8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows. 9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. 10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations. 11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost. 12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: 15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: 16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment. 17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. 20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. 21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: 22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. 23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things. 24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. 28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near: 29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors. 30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. 31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. 29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; 30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. 31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. 32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. 33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
