Study for the Month July 2010: The 1290 and 1335 Days of Daniel (Page 4)

The 1335 Prophetic Days

“Still another prophetic period is here introduced, denoting 1335 years. Can we tell when this period begins and ends? The only clue we have to the solution of this question, is the fact that it is spoken of in immediate connection with the 1290 years, which began in 508 as shown above. From that point there shall be, says the prophet, 1290 days. The very next sentence reads, ‘Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the 1335 days.’ From what point?— From the same point, undoubtedly, as that from which the 1290 date, namely, A.D. 508. Unless they are to be reckoned from this point, it is impossible to locate them, and they must be excepted from the prophecy of Daniel when we apply to it the words of Christ, ‘Whoso readeth, let him understand.’ Matt. 24:15. From this point they would extend to 1843, for 1335 added to 508 make 1843. Beginning in the spring of the former year, they ended in the spring of the latter. Read more

[compared to the 1260 days], 1290 prophetic days, which according to Bible authority would denote the same number of literal years. From the reading of the text, some have inferred that this period begins with the setting up of the abomination of desolation, or the papal power, in A. D. 538, and consequently extends to 1828. We find nothing in the latter year [1828] to mark its termination, but we do find evidence in the margin that it begins before the setting up of the papal abomination. The margin reads, ‘To set up the abomination.’ With this reading the text would stand thus: “From the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away to set up [or, in order to set up] the abomination that maketh desolate, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.’ Read more
