"HOW LONG IS THE 'GREAT TRIBULATION' AND WHEN DOES IT BEGIN?"

Dear Doves,

Matthew 24:15
"So when you see standing in the holy place the abomination that causes desolation spoken of through the prophet Daniel - let the reader understand-
Matthew 24:21
For then there will be great tribulation, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now - and never to be equaled again."

Daniel 12;6
"How long will it be before these astonishing things are fulfilled?
Dasniel 12:7
It will be for a time, times and half a time.
Daniel 12:11
>From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished AND THE ABOMINATION THAT CAUSES DESOLATION IS SET UP, THERE WILL BE 1,290 DAYS."


1,290 days are 43 Hebrew months, not 42. I believe that Scripture tells us that the 'first-half' of the 70th Week of Daniel is 1,260 days which is 42 Hebrew months long, but the 'second-half' is 1,290 days which is 43 Hebrew months long and is the 'great tribulation' described in Matthew 24:21.
 
During the course of 7 years there are 84 (42+42) = Gregorian Calendar months, but there are 85 (42+43) Hebrew Calendar months because Hebrew Months are a maximum of 30 days each. Seven Gregorian Calendar ears contain the same number of days as seven Hebrew Calendar years.

Scripture tells us that the 'great tribulation' begins "When you see standing ---", and it lasts for 1,290 days.

Come Lord Jesus!
