"Time, Times and Half - Jacob's Trouble - 70 Weeks"


 

Time, Times and a Half

Daniel 7:25

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Daniel 12:7

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.

Revelation 12:6

6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Revelation 12:14

14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

Revelation 11:3

3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

Revelation 11:2

2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

Revelation 13:5-7

5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.


There is a Key given in Revelation 12. It is the only usage of the term “time, times and a half” outside of the Book of Daniel.


Using Simple Algebraic Mathematical Substitution and the Key from Revelation 12:

X = Time, Times and Half

Y = 1,260 Day

Z = 42 Months


X = Y : Revelation 12:14 = Revelation 12:6

X = Z : Daniel 7:25 = Revelation 13:5-7


Therefore since X equals both Y and Z then all the variables are of equal value. Thus X=Y=Z

The 1,260 days is 42 months and is referred to as a Time (1 yr) Times (plural – 2 yrs) and a Half a Time (.5 yrs) This is all the same time period – 3.5 years, 42 months or 1,260 days.


Daniel's Prophecy of the 70 Weeks

Daniel 9:24a

Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city,

Daniel’s Prophecy only deals with the Nation of Israel (Jewish People) and Jerusalem.
