Timing 2 – 1290 Days
by Clint Young (reprinted with permission)
Earlier this year [written and shared in 2011], I thought that 2011 may be the year in which the Jewish temple or “sanctuary” as defined by Daniel would be built on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem. Short of a miracle I don’t see how this could be the case in 2011. However, significant events are occurring in the Middle East which may soon lead to the beginning of specific periods of time revealed to Daniel.
Whenever, the daily sacrifice begins in the newly built and dedicated Jewish temple or “sanctuary”, this marks the beginning of a 2300 day countdown as defined in Daniel 8: 13-14.
I discussed these 2300 days in a previous e-mail [link to previous post here for reference]. In this e-mail I wish to point out another time period that was revealed to Daniel. This period of time is 1290 days.
Daniel 12: 11-12 defines this 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.”
What is Daniel 12: 11-12 telling us??? It is saying that 1290 days will go by from the time the daily sacrifice is stopped until the abomination that maketh desolate is removed and the temple/sanctuary is cleansed. Soon we may be able to see the beginnings of the below sequence of events:
- The Jews build a small temple or “sanctuary” on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem.
- The new “sanctuary” is dedicated.
- Daily animal sacrifices begin at the new “sanctuary” and continue 1010 days (see below for explanation).
- The armies of the antichrist stop the daily sacrifice.
- The abomination that maketh desolate is set up at the new “sanctuary” site.
- The “sanctuary” remains without daily sacrifice for 1290 days.
- The abomination that maketh desolate is removed and the “sanctuary” is cleansed.
Daniel 8: 13-14 tells of 2300 days in which the daily sacrifice is begun and continues. These 2300 days also includes the time the sanctuary will be without daily sacrifice and is desecrated by the abomination of the antichrist. This latter period is 1290 days as defined in Daniel 12:11.
By subtracting 1290 from 2300 one obtains 1010 days. These 1010 days are the time the daily sacrifice will continue. The remaining 1290 days is the time the sanctuary will be desecrated. There will be no daily sacrifice during that time. This is more clearly shown below:
2300 days: time of daily sacrifice + time the sanctuary will be desecrated
– 1290 days: time the sanctuary will be desecrated
1010 days: time of daily sacrifice
The “sanctuary” could be built by the Jews on Mount Moriah within the next couple of years. When this event happens, be on notice that from the day the daily sacrifice begins that there are 1010 days until the antichrist stops those sacrifices. Soon after stopping the daily sacrifice the antichrist will set up his abomination that maketh desolate at the temple site. When this event occurs, know that the great tribulation will officially begin per Biblical prophecy.
I will discuss when the great tribulation begins in Timing 3…
[Editor’s note: This is the second of a series of 6 posts about biblical ‘end times’ prophecy given to me in email format October/November 2011 and is reprinted with permission. Clint Young is a friend of mine and has been for many many years. I know him to be a man of integrity and a serious student of scripture. He has a very analytical mind and has spent a great deal of time studying scripture relative to prophetic events (past present and future). I will give you the series on timing first and then some practical advice and tips he has shared with me over the years. Please join with me and examine your heart and see if you are ready for whatever might lie ahead of us. Ask the Lord not only about the condition of your heart but the condition of the nation and if there is anything we can yet do as individuals and as bodies of believers to help one another to see the salvation of the Lord in our midst in ways that will bring as many to Him as possible. It is important that we keep looking to Him for the answers and know the signs of the times!/sc]
