1260,1290,1335 and 888 continued

1260,1290,1335 and 888

I have been thinking about this for sometime now, just pondering it all (see previous post).

Let’s have a look at this verse from Isaiah 53, ESV translation:-

Isa 53:11  Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities.


Keil & delitsch render it thus in their commentary:-

“Because of the travail of His soul, He will see, and be refreshed; through His knowledge will He procure justice, my righteous servant, for the many, and will take their iniquities upon Himself.” 


Both these translations capture the idea that it is by the Lord’s knowledge that He procures justice for the many, “make many to be accounted righteous”. It is “by His knowledge”.

The numbers 1260, 1290 and 1335 have to do, I surmise, with the very nature of Jesus Himself, His knowledge. 
Let us not forget, either, that he has a new name, too.

Rev 3:12  The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.

So do these:-

Rev 2:17  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.’

For the present, though, we are looking at the name of JESUS, so let us press on to see what this name contains in relation to our three numbers.

……………………..

1260

Rev 12:5  She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, Rev 12:6  and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days.
Rev 12:14  But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.

Rev 11:3  And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.”

Rev 11:2  but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample the holy city for forty-two months. 

Rev 13:5  And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. 

Rev 13:6  It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven.

Dan 7:25  He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.

It is common to lump 1260 together with the 42 months BUT 42 months (and time, and times, and half a time for that matter) are NOT a part of the name of JESUS (as far as I know).
What I read, so far, is this:-

1.   Days for the Church

2.   Months for the beast

3.   Time, times and half a time when the woman/saints and earthly powers/beast are mentioned together. For example, in Daniel:-

Dan 7:25  He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.

Again we see  this in the Revelation:-

Rev 12:14  But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.

It’s the same woman as in Revelation 12:5 (I think, anyway) except that she is now mentioned in connection with an earthly kingdom (the two wings of the great eagle) and subsequently the time parameter is defined in terms of “a time, and times, and half a time.”

When the scripture is dealing solely with the beast, the time parameter changes again to “months”:-

Rev 13:5  And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months.

Now that, to my mind, is one of the keys to really going forward in this area of scripture study. 


I will be adding more on these numbers to this post and/or future posts as more light dawns.

See

for some thoughts on 1335 and that other mysterious number, 2300.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
As I have mentioned elsewhere, there is no actual mention of 1260 days in the book of Daniel. Equally, there is no mention of 1290 or 1335 days in the revelation. Yet the name of JESUS combines all three, 1260 in the Revelation and 1290 and 1335 in Daniel.
