Part 5 – Prophetic Weeks & 1335 Days

27 And he shall enter into a strong and firm covenant with the many for one week.

And in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and offering to cease;

and upon the wing or pinnacle of abominations shall come one who makes desolate,

until the full determined end is poured out on the desolator.

(Dan 9:27 Ampl)

A Prophetic Week

How long is a week? Seven days. Looking at the five different prophetic levels, revealing the ‘times and seasons’ of YHWH, we can find different prophetic weeks on each level.

Starting with the first level or the large cogs of 490 year, we find that a week would be 7 X 490 years = 3430 years. When we look at a smaller cog, the second prophetic level of 70 years, a week would be 7 X 70 = 490 years. When we look an even smaller prophetic cog of 49 years or Jubilees, a week would be 7 X 49 = 343 years.

In order to understand the 1260 year prophetic period, we will first look at how we arrived at this amount. 1260 Days are 360 X 3.5 or 3.5 prophetic years. When we add 3.5 and 3.5 we get a prophetic week of 7 days. This was one of the interpretations of the words: ‘Times, time and half a time’, with ‘a time’ equal to 360 days. Using the ‘day-for-a-year’ principle, we find that 1260 days are now also equal to 1260 years. As we have mentioned, the 1290 days period is only a 1260 day period plus one leap month of 30 days added, for adjusting for fall-out on the calendar, because the earth turns around the sun, not exactly 365 days, but 365.4 days. This is the reason we add one day in February, every fourth year, in order to make up for time lost. Even this is not hundred percent accurate, since, over many years, our imperfect calendars start to lose a few days. YHWH, in His wisdom, has given the Israelites a very simple way of keeping count, not losing time.

Thus, the feasts are like a large, divinely set time clock of God. Every now and then the people would lose track of time, because of not keeping the feasts of YHWH, then YHWH would send them an anointed one to reset the time lost, restoring the actual date, thus, restoring the perfect timing of YHWH again.

When we look at all the prophetic levels or cogs, like gears, we see how the number 7 is the common denominator. Actually the smallest number that can divide into all these time periods is not 7, but 3.5. Using the day-for-a-year principle for the 3.5 period, we find that 3.5 years is equal to 1260 days, which now becomes equal to 1260 years. The partial fulfilment of prophecy in the past, looking at the different prophetic levels, is proof that YHWH has set His ‘Times and seasons’ to these prophetic periods.

The stopping of the sacrifices in 583BC and the building of the Dome of the rock in 688BC, 1290 prophetic years later, is perfect proof how YHWH had set the fulfilment of prophecy to His ‘times and seasons’. Israel becoming a state in one day, exactly 1260 years after the building of the ‘Dome of the Rock’, is another awesome proof of YHWH’s divine, prophetic ‘times and seasons.’

Adding 1290 prophetic years (1271.5 years) to 1260 prophetic years (1260 years) we find an amount of 2550 prophetic years (2531.5 years.) Thus, 2550 prophetic years is equal to a 7 year prophetic time period, with prophetic cogs of 360 year periods. This is an awesome discovery, which will help to unseal the last 7 years, before Yahshua returns to the earth. Only after discovering this, I was able to understand the other, more difficult to explain, prophetic time periods in the prophetic week.

There is one more variation to this prophetic week, which Yahshua revealed to the apostle John. Before we can understand this, we need to look at the temple site, where both the first and the second temples were built.

The Dome of the Rock

The Dome of the Rock is an important Islamic shrine and Jerusalem landmark located on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem . The structure, the oldest extant example of early Islamic architecture, was completed in 691 CE at the order of Arabian Umayyad Caliph , Abd al-Malik . The site's significance stems from religious traditions regarding the rock, known as the Foundation Stone , at its heart.

The Dome of the Rock is located at the visual centre of a platform known as the Temple Mount. It was constructed on the site of the Second Jewish Temple , which was destroyed during the Roman Siege of Jerusalem in 70 CE . In 637 CE, Jerusalem was conquered by the Rashidun Caliphate army during the Muslim conquest of Syria . The Dome of the Rock was erected between 689 and 691 CE.

The Foundation Stone under the Dome of the Rock, a possible historical location for the Kodesh Hakodashim.

After Jerusalem was taken by Muslim conquest, the first thing they did was to erect another temple on the old temple site, to prevent the Jews from erecting the Third temple, thus desecrate the temple site. Having found a rock, known as the Foundation Stone, they concluded that this was the original second temple site. What many do not know was that they actually found two flat bedrock stones:

In 685AD, the Moslem governor of Jerusalem, Kalifah Abd el Malik ibd Marwan, began clearing the temple mount. He used the local people to do so, including the Christians and Jews still living in the city. When the bedrock was exposed, they found two solid rock promontories within 300 feet from each other . The one towards the south they named “as-Sakhra,” The other promontory was towards the north, slightly west of “as-Sakhra”, which were an unusually flat stone. The builders built the “Dome of the Rock” on the “as-Sakhra” rock, as a memorial to the prophet Muhammad. The actual construction began in 688AD. Over the other site they erected a little, unimposing cupola, aptly named: “The Dome of the Spirits” or “the Dome of the Tablets.”

Not many years ago the complete foundation of the second temple was found. The Holy of Holies or ‘Kodesh Hakodashim’ was situated on the exact place where the ‘Dome of the spirits’ are today. The ‘Dome of the Rock’ was built on the wrong archaeological site. It was actually built on the part of the Temple, which is known as the “Outer Court.”

Yahshua revealed to the apostle John in the book of “The Revelation of Yahshua,” which was written around 95AD, that this would happen, saying to John in vision: 1 A REED as a measuring rod was then given to me, shaped like a staff, and I was told: Rise up and measure the sanctuary of God [ Temple ] and the altar of incense, and number those who worship there. [Ezek. 40:3.] 2 But leave out of your measuring the court outside the sanctuary of God [ Outer court ]; omit that, for it is given over to the Gentiles (the nations), and they will trample the holy city underfoot for 42 months (3.5 years). [Isa. 63:18; Zech. 12:3.] 3 And I will grant the power of prophecy to My two witnesses for 1,260 days (42 months; 3.5 years), dressed in sackcloth. (Rev 11:1-3 Ampl)

Yahshua revealed to John that the outer court of the temple will be trampled by the gentile nations for a period of 42 months. This is very significant that Yahshua called this period a 42 month period, for in the next verse Yahshua revealed how two prophets will prophecy in the city of Jerusalem, for a period of 1260 days. Both these time periods are equal to 3.5 years. Why does Yahshua distinguish between these two times, describing them in two different ways?

One possibility would be that they refer to the same time period of 3.5 years, yet are different. Although both are technically 3.5 year periods, they are actually different in actual days, because of an added leap month, with the 1260 day time period, being exactly 1260 days. What then would be the actual time period of the prophetic 42 months?

A prophetic month of a 360 day, year, is 30 days. The estimated length of a solar year is 365.24 days. Thus, an average solar month would be 30.44 days. (365.24/12 = 30.44) Counting this for 42 months would yield – 1278.34 solar days. When we count from the time when the Dome of the Rock was built, adding 1278.34 days, we arrive at the year 1967AD! This is very significant. What happened in 1967? The Six-day war in Israel!

Back

Six day War

During the 1967 Six-Day War, Israel captured East Jerusalem and asserted sovereignty over the entire city. Jewish and Christian access to holy sites was restored, while the Temple Mount remained under the jurisdiction of an Islamic waqf. The Moroccan Quarter, which was located adjacent to the Western Wall, was vacated and razed [89] to make way for a plaza for those visiting the wall. [90] Since the war, Israel has expanded the city's boundaries and established a ring of Jewish neighborhoods on vacant land east of the Green Line.

However, the takeover of East Jerusalem was met with international criticism. Following the passing of Israel's Jerusalem Law, which declared Jerusalem, "complete and united", the capital of Israel, [91] the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution that declared the law "a violation of international law" and requested all member states to withdraw all remaining embassies from the city. [92]

The status of the city, and especially its holy places, remains a core issue in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Jewish settlers have taken over historic sites and built on land confiscated from Arabs [93] in order to expand the Jewish presence in East Jerusalem, [94] while prominent Islamic leaders have made claims that Jews have no historical connection to Jerusalem, alleging that the 2500-year old Western Wall was constructed as part of a mosque. [95]Palestinian Arabs envision East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state, [96] [97] and the city's borders have been the subject of bilateral talks.

Daniel's Week In conclusion, we now have a prophetic week, spanning from the time that the sacrifices were stopped, during the Babylonian captivity in 583BC to the time when an abomination, which caused the desolation of Israel and Jerusalem, the ‘Dome of the Rock,’ was built on the temple site, in 688AD, in an attempt to prevent the temple from being re-built again. It would take another 1260 solar years , before the country of Israel would be restored to the Jews, on the 14 th of May, 1948. Adding a prophetic leap month, in order to account for the solar calendar, we must count the 42 month period as 1278.34 years , which lands on 1967, the year when the six-day war was fought in Israel for the return of the old city of Jerusalem. Thus, these prophetic time periods perfectly counts from the time Jerusalem was restored, to the time the ‘Dome of the Rock’ was set up in Jerusalem, until Israel was restored and until Jerusalem was returned to Israel, 20 years later.

1335 Day – The Blessed Period – Survivors of Israel

After a thorough research of dates and times of historic events, I was able to test that which Herbert Armstrong had discovered, able to better interpret that which Yahshua had revealed both to him and to me about the fulfilment of the last 7 years and my role as a prophet in the last days.

While doing this research, I was able to prophetically test the dates, whether they do fit the ‘times and seasons’ of YHWH, comparing them with what I had received from Yahshua. Then I made a remarkable discovery of the interpretation of the number 1335 days, in Daniel’s prophecy, as was prophesied: 12 Blessed, happy, fortunate, spiritually prosperous, and to be envied is he who waits expectantly and earnestly, who endures without wavering beyond the period of tribulation and comes to the 1,335 days! (Dan 12:5-12 Ampl)

YHWH revealed to the prophet Daniel that those who are able to endure past the tribulation period of 1335 days, will be blessed to have being able to survive, as was prophesied, according to the prophet Isaiah, saying: 2 In that day the Branch of the Lord shall be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land shall be excellent and lovely to those of Israel who have escaped. [Jer. 23:5; 33:15; Zech. 3:8; 6:12.] 3 And he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy, everyone who is recorded for life in Jerusalem and for eternal life, [Joel 3:17; Phil. 4:3.] 4 After the Lord has washed away the [moral] filth of the daughters of Zion [pride, vanity, haughtiness] and has purged the bloodstains of Jerusalem from the midst of it by the spirit and blast of judgment and by the spirit and blast of burning and sifting. 5 And the Lord will createover the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection). 6 And there shall be a pavilion for shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge and a shelter from storm and from rain. (Isa 4:2-6 Ampl)

In order to make this awesome, prophetically consequent discovery, I had to look at more than 1500 combinations, between prophetically relevant dates in history and dates mentioned in scripture, between which to count. I had to look at all the possible, specific day-to-year prophetic periods (1260; 1290; 1335; 2300 days) with their conversions to the Hebrew calendar. Here we will only look at what I discovered regards the 1335 day period’s prophetic fulfilment.

The most difficult part of explaining the number 1335 days is not its length, but where to start counting this season of time? The logical explanation for this period would be from the beginning of the time of tribulation until the end of the tribulation. When we add this period in years from the middle of the tribulation, when the abomination of desolation was set, it does not work out to a significant prophetic event in the future.

Just as before, only by correctly interpreting the past we can unlock the future. Converting 1335 days to Hebrew reckoning of time we find a period of 1315.85 years. But where do we start to count. There was no easy way of finding where, but there had to be a significant place in history, which would fit this prophetic season of YHWH. If the historic periods fit, the future interpretation would become clear. As I have said before, I literally looked at the difference between 1664 combinations of dates and found a few that could prophetically be relevant. I found not only prophetically relevant places in history, but also the exact times when the counting of these periods started, from very significant dates in history, which even helped to interpret what YHWH had told the prophet Daniel.

Let me ask you - the reader? Do you think that the birth of Israel in 1948 was a very significant date in the history of Israel? So significant is this date that the prophet Isaiah prophesied about it, saying: 7 Before Zion travailed, she gave birth; before her pain came upon her, she was delivered of a male child. 8 Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day ? Or shall a nation be brought forth in a moment ? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she brought forth her children. 9 Shall I bring to the moment of birth and not cause to bring forth? says the Lord. Shall I Who causes to bring forth shut the womb? says your God. 10 Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn over her, 11 That you may nurse and be satisfied from her consoling breasts, that you may drink deeply and be delighted with the abundance and brightness of her glory. (Isa 66:7-11 Ampl) Although the Jews returned back to the land of Israel, after nearly 2000 years, they did not get the old city of Jerusalem back until 20 years later, at the six-day in 1967. Do you think this date in history would be a prophetically important date? Both these dates were so significant to YHWH, that He marked them with solar and lunar eclipses, on the feasts’ of Passover and Tabernacles, the first and the last feasts of YHWH’s calendar.

In order to understand where this prophetic time period of 1335 days fits, we must first understand the history of Jerusalem:

History of Jerusalem between 614 – 1948 AD

History of Jerusalem

The city has a history that goes back to the 4th millennium BCE, making it one of the oldest cities in the world. [5] Jerusalem has been the holiest city in Judaism and the spiritual center of the Jewish people since the 10th century BCE, [6] In the course of its history, Jerusalem has been destroyed twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, and captured and recaptured 44 times. [11]

Within the span of a few decades, Jerusalem shifted from Roman to Persian rule and returned to Roman dominion once more. Following SassanidKhosrau II's early seventh century push into Byzantine, advancing through Syria, Sassanid Generals Shahrbaraz and Shahin attacked the Byzantine-controlled city of Jerusalem (Persian: Dej Houdkh). [49]

In the Siege of Jerusalem ( 614AD), after 21 days of relentless siege warfare, Jerusalem was captured and the Persian victory resulted in the territorial annexation of Jerusalem. After the Sassanid army entered Jerusalem, the holy "True Cross" was stolen and sent back to the Sassanian capital as a battle-captured holy relic. Persians massacred up to 90,000 Christians. [50] The conquered city and the Holy Cross would remain in Sassanid hands for some fifteen years until the Byzantine Emperor Heraclius recovered them in 629. [49]

Arab rule

Jerusalem is considered Islam's third holiest city after Mecca and Medina. Among Muslims of an earlier era, it was referred to as al-Bayt al-Muqaddas; later, it became known as al-Quds al-Sharif. In 638, the IslamicCaliphate extended its dominion to Jerusalem. [51] With the Arab conquest, Jews were allowed back into the city. [52] The Rashidun caliph Umar ibn al-Khattab signed a treaty with Monophysite Christian Patriarch Sophronius, assuring him that Jerusalem's Christian holy places and population would be protected under Muslim rule. [53]Umar was led to the Foundation Stone on the Temple Mount, which he cleared of refuse in preparation for building a mosque. According to the Gaullic bishop Arculf, who lived in Jerusalem from 679-688, the Mosque of Umar was a rectangular wooden structure built over ruins which could accommodated 3,000 worshipers. [54]The Umayyad caliph Abd al-Malik commissioned the construction of the Dome of the Rock in the late 7th century. [55] The 10th century historian al-Muqaddasi writes that Abd al-Malik built the shrine in order to compete in grandeur of Jerusalem's monumental churches. [54] Over the next four hundred years, Jerusalem's prominence diminished as Arab powers in the region jockeyed for control. [56]

Siege of Jerusalem ( 614 AD)

The Siege of Jerusalem in 614 was part of the final phase of the Roman-Persian Wars. The Persian Shah Khosrau II appointed his generals to conquer the Byzantine controlled areas of the Middle East, establishing a strategic alliance with the Jewish population of

Dome of the Rock

the Sassanid Persia. Following the Persian advances into Syria in the previous year, Shahrbaraz's next target was Jerusalem, the capital of Palaestina Prima and the Christian Empire holy city. Providing direct access to the Mediterranean Sea, the city would have also provided a strategic location for the Persian Empire to begin constructing a naval fleet, thereby threatening Byzantine hegemony in the Mediterranean. Reinforced by the Jewish army from Persia and local Jewish rebels under Benjamin of Tiberias, Persian army laid siege on Jerusalem.After 21 days of relentless siege warfare, Jerusalem's walls yielded and the conclusive Persian victory resulted in the territorial annexation of Jerusalem, and all of Palaestina Prima. [1]

The Jews, who had long been marginalized and oppressed in their Roman-controlled homeland, viewed the Persian invaders favourably. Once the Sassanid army had breached the city's fortifications, some 26,000 Jewish rebels joined the war against the Byzantine Christians, who disallowed Jews from settling in Jerusalem. [2] Shahrbaraz ordered a swift razing and looting of Jerusalem. [1] Having recognized the assistance of the Jews in the significant capture, he even gave them the opportunity to massacre personally their Christian enemies.

Accounts from early Christian chroniclers suggest that 26,000 Jewish rebels entered the streets of the city. Some Jerusalem Christians were taken captive, gathered together and murdered in mass by Jews. [3] [4] The ancient Greek historian Antiochus Strategos writes that captive Christians were gathered near Mamilla reservoir and the Jews offered to help them escape death if they "become Jews and deny Christ". The Christian captives refused, and the Jews in anger had purchased the Christians from Persians and massacred them on the spot. [5]

Shortly after the Persian army entered Jerusalem, unprecedented looting and sacrilege took place. Church after church was burned down alongside the innumerable Christian artifacts, which were stolen or damaged by the ensuing arson. [1] But Persia's most devastating crime in the eyes of the Byzantines was the capture of the True Cross and its removal to Ctesiphon as a battle-captured holy relic. [1] The human toll of Jerusalem's razing was also catastrophic, some 90,000 Christians are said to have perished in the sacking, [1] as a result not only of the Persian army's actions, but also of the free hand given to the Jews by Shahrbaraz. Given that Khosrau II generally practiced religious tolerance and did deem Christians respectfully, it is not known why Shahrbaraz ordered such a massacre. One reason could simply have been Shahrbaraz's rage at the resistance that had been offered by Jerusalem's Christian populace. The conquered city and the Holy Cross would remain in Sassanid hands for some fifteen years until Heraclius recovered them in 629.

The History of Jerusalem (632 – 1516 AD)

In 632-633 AD, is a sweeping power shift, the Byzantine Empire fell and a new group of people rose to power: the Arabs (Smith 5). For hundreds of years, the Arab people had been nomads living in the desert regions of the Middle East (5). It wasn’t until the life and death of Muhammad, the great Muslim prophet that the Arabs united on a world conquest (5). Muhammad claimed that he had been chosen by God or Allah to spread His word. He lived in Mecca for over 50 years, but was forced to leave Mecca because of his religious teachings. He ended up in Medina where, by the time of his death in 632, he was considered to be the true messenger of Allah (6). His leadership prompted the Islamic community to begin a massive take-over of much of the known world .

Jerusalem fell to the Arabs in 638 AD . The attitude of the Muslims toward the Christians and Jews was that they were acceptable, but they were lesser people than Muslims because Muslims believed that Islam was the culmination of both Christianity and Judaism. They believed that the Christians had corrupted the word of God and that the only perfect interpretation was that of Islam (7). Typically the Jews and Christians living in Palestine were not persecuted for their religious beliefs, but they suffered under discrimination. All non-Muslims were referred to as “dhimmis” and forced to pay high taxes in return for freedom of worship (7). Also, it was no longer legal to build churches or synagogues in Palestine. Another interesting thing that was used to belittle the dhminnis was that all non-Muslims were made to wear clothes that differed from those of Muslims and ride smaller animals, so that they could be identified (8).

Under Muslim rule in 691 AD, one of the Umayyad caliphs declared Temple Mount in Jerusalem a holy site and constructed the Dome of the Rock on that land. This act added another point of contention for all religious people involved, because now all three religions, Islam, Judaism and Christianity had a claim on the holy city of Jerusalem. In Islamic belief, Jerusalem was now considered to be the third holiest site (9). However, things began to fall apart under the Abbasid dynasty in 750 AD. The empire had grown too large to manage and Islam had begun to split into two disagreeing sects: Sunni and Shi’i (6). The Shi’ite Muslims believed that the fourth Islamic caliph, Ali, was the legitimate ruler and challenged the notion that the first two caliphs were valid. The Sunni Muslims believed in the Umayyad dynasty and they had most of the control over the government (6). The contention between these two different groups of Muslims further pushed the Arab Empire into submission to a new group of invaders: the Crusaders.

In 1099, the Crusaders took Jerusalem from the Islamic leaders and held control of the holy city for a little less than 100 years (9). During this period, both Muslims and Jews were prevented from praying in Jerusalem and large portions of those populations were eradicated. Christian authority under the Crusaders was short-lived and, in 1187, Saladin took back Jerusalem for the Arabs (9). From 1229-1244 AD, Christians managed to regain control of Jerusalem, but in 1250 AD, a group called the Mamluks, “a Muslim military elite,” captured all of Palestine and maintained control of Palestine for the Arabs until 1516 AD (9-10).

The city of Jerusalem was first destroyed during the time of Babylonian captivity (583 BC), by Nebuchadnezzar, and later again, burnt down by Titus in 70 AD. Jerusalem was captured by Rome around the time of the restoration of the Holy Roman Empire (554 AD), but was later taken by Muslim conquest in 614 AD.

The Arab conquest of Armenia

The Arab conquest of Armenia was a part of the Muslim conquests after the death of Muhammad in AD 632. Persian Armenia had fallen to the Byzantine Empire shortly before, in AD 629, and was conquered in the Rashidun Caliphate by AD 645.

The year 632 AD, the year that the false prophet, Muhammad, died was followed by the rise of Muslim power, uniting Muslims together to fight against the Persian Empire. From this time on, Israel and the old city of Jerusalem came under Muslim control. It was under different governments during the next 1260 years, until it became a state, in one day, on the 14th of May 1948. In 1967, after the six-day war, the old city of Jerusalem was re-possessed from Muslim control, for the first time in nearly 2000 years.

YHWH revealed to the prophet Jeremiah how the Jewish people will pass through a terrible time, which the prophets called the time of Jacobs’s trouble, as was prophesied: “7 Alas! for that day will be great, so that none will be like it; it will be the time of Jacob's [unequaled] trouble, but he will be saved out of it. [Matt. 24:29, 30; Rev. 7:14.] 8 For it will come to pass in that day, says the Lord of hosts, that I will break [the oppressor's] yoke from your neck, and I will burst your bonds; and strangers will no more make slaves of [the people of Israel]. 9 But they will serve the Lord their God and David's descendant, their King, Whom I will raise up for them. [Jer. 23:5.]” (Jer 30:7-9 Ampl) The tribes of Judah, who became known as the Jews, were often oppressed and treated as slaves under many different gentiles nations. In the siege of Jerusalem 614 AD, although the Jews joined forces with the Persian Empire, they were treated as salves and lesser human beings. After having being under the Persian kingdom for a short while of 15 years, the Arabs rose up, in 632 AD, started to conquer the known world, putting siege to Jerusalem once more, taking Jerusalem by 638 AD.

YHWH revealed to Jeremiah, how the Jewish people will be oppressed, but that a remnant will survive through this great tribulation. Revealing His ‘times and seasons’ to the prophet Daniel, YHWH revealed, the exact prophetic time seasons; how the people of Israel would be oppressed; the purification time decreed for them, having to pass through a prophetic desert, yet be protected, during this time, as was prophesied: 10 Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be tried, smelted, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but the teachers and those who are wise shall understand. [Dan. 11:33-35.] 12 Blessed, happy, fortunate, spiritually prosperous, and to be envied is he who waits expectantly and earnestly, who endures without wavering beyond the period of tribulation and comes to the 1,335 days! (Dan 12:10-12 Ampl) YHWH revealed to Daniel that in order to pass through this period of great tribulation, it would take unwavering endurance and trust in Him, until they have reached the end of a 1335 day prophetic period.

Making use of the day-for-a-year principle, we count from around the time when the siege of Jerusalem (613-614 AD) begun, 1335 years and arrive at around 1948 AD (613-614 + 1335 = 1948/1949). When we also consider the siege of Jerusalem, 15 years later by the Muslims (632 AD), counting 1335 prophetic years ( 1315.85 years ), we arrive 1947 AD. This was the year that the United Nations gave orders to restore Israel as a state again, on the 29th of November 1947, just as was prophesied: “25 Know therefore and understand that from the going forthof thecommandment to restore and to build Jerusalem...” When we count 1335 years from 632 AD, we arrive at 1967 AD. This was the year that Israel received Jerusalem back again, after it was first besieged by the Muslims in 614 AD. YHWH perfectly synchronized the ‘times and seasons’ of the Jewish people, there tribulations and restorations, with one another and with His feasts. Very few knew this, but the day Israel became a state, on 14 May 1948, was on the feast of Shavuot or Pentecost. Thus, the Jews would first pass through a period of great tribulation, which started at the first siege of Jerusalem in 614 AD, lasting a period 1335 years , until they would finally return to their land, becoming a state on the 14th of May 1948.

Blessed Time 1335 days 614 AD

Blessed Times 1335 632 AD

From the time the siege started to the time when the siege was over or when Israel or Jerusalem was besieged to being returned took 1335 prophetic Years and 1315.85 Solar years . Jerusalem was taken the first time 3.5 years before the temple was broken down. In 614 AD the siege of Jerusalem started and at 632 AD Muslim rule started over Jerusalem, but 5 years later, 638 AD, Jerusalem was taken. On the 14 th of May 1948 Israel was restored, but on the 6 th of June 1967, Jerusalem was restored again.

The Six-Day War (1967 AD)

The Six-Day War of June 5-10, 1967 was a war between the Israeli army and the armies of the neighboring states of Egypt, Jordan, and Syria. The Arab states of Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria also contributed troops and arms. [7] At the war's end, Israel had gained control of the Sinai Peninsula, the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights. The results of the war affect the geopolitics of the region to this day.

Following numerous border clashes between Israel and its Arab neighbours, particularly Syria, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser expelled the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) from the Sinai Peninsula in May 1967. [8]The peacekeeping force had been stationed there since 1957, following a British-French-Israeli invasion of Egypt which was launched during the Suez Crisis. [9] Egypt amassed 1,000 tanks and nearly 100,000 soldiers on the Israeli border [10] and closed the Straits of Tiran to all ships flying Israeli flags or carrying strategic materials, receiving strong support from other Arab countries. [11] Israel responded with a similar mobilization that included the call up of 70,000 reservists to augment the regular IDF forces. [12]

On June 5, 1967, Israel launched a surprise attack on Egypt and Syria. Israel has always considered this a preemptive attack. [13] This is, however, disputed by Arab countries, who assert that Israel's strike was an unwarranted and illegal act of aggression. [14] Jordan, which had signed a mutual defense treaty with Egypt on May 30, then attacked western Jerusalem and Netanya. [15] [16] [17]

Six-Day War was fought and won in six days. This was a perfect shadow picture of the 7 day Sabbath cycle of YWHW. Was YHWH restoring His 7 year cycles of counting, re-synchronizing it perfectly to His “times and seasons?’

These prophetic ‘times and seasons’ are not just chance, but were perfectly planned and predestined by YHWH – the God of the Universe; perfectly synchronizing them according to His ‘times and seasons’; who hold the ‘times and the seasons’ perfectly in His hand, even as Job declared: 4 God is wise in heart and mighty in strength; who has [ever] hardened himself against Him and prospered or even been safe? 5 [God] Who removes the mountains, and they know it not when He overturns them in His anger; 6 Who shakes the earth out of its place, and the pillars of it tremble; 7 Who commands the sun, and it rises not; Who seals up the stars [from view]; 8 Who alone stretches out the heavens and treads upon the waves and high places of the sea; 9 Who made [the constellations] the Bear, Orion, and the [loose cluster] Pleiades, and the [vast starry] spaces of the south; 10 Who does great things past finding out, yes, marvellous things without number. (Job 9:4-10 Ampl)

I found one more very interesting variation to the 1335 year time season of Daniel. The city of Jerusalem was taken 638 AD. Counting 1335 solar years, we arrive at 1973. This was the year all the nations all around decided to attack Israel on their most Holy day - Yom-Kippur:

Yom Kippur War

The Yom Kippur War, Ramadan War, or October War, also known as the 1973 Arab–Israeli War and the Fourth Arab–Israeli War, was a war of aggression [38] fought by the coalition of Arab states led by Egypt and Syria against Israel from October 6 to 25, 1973.

The war began when the coalition launched a joint surprise attack on Israel on Yom Kippur, the holiest day in Judaism, which occurred that year during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Egyptian and Syrian forces crossed ceasefire lines to enter the Israeli-held Sinai Peninsula and Golan Heights respectively, which had been captured and occupied since the 1967 Six-Day War. Both the United States and the Soviet Union initiated massive resupply efforts to their respective allies during the war, and this led to a near-confrontation between the two nuclear superpowers. [39]

The war began with a massive and successful Egyptian crossing of the Suez Canal. After crossing the cease-fire lines, Egyptian forces advanced virtually unopposed into the Sinai Peninsula. After three days, Israel had mobilized most of its forces and managed to halt the Egyptian offensive, settling into a stalemate. The Syrians coordinated their attack on the Golan Heights to coincide with the Egyptian offensive and initially made threatening gains into Israeli-held territory. Within three days, however, Israeli forces had managed to push the Syrians back to the pre-war ceasefire lines. They then launched a four-day counter-offensive deep into Syria. Within a week, Israeli artillery began to shell the outskirts of Damascus. As Egyptian president Anwar Sadat began to worry about the integrity of his major ally, he believed that capturing two strategic passes located deeper in the Sinai would make his position stronger during the negotiations. He therefore ordered the Egyptians to go back on the offensive, but the attack was quickly repulsed. The Israelis then counterattacked at the seam between the two Egyptian armies, crossed the Suez Canal into Egypt, and began slowly advancing southward and westward in over a week of heavy fighting which inflicted heavy casualties on both sides.

On October 22 a United Nations-brokered ceasefire quickly unravelled, with each side blaming the other for the breach. By October 24, the Israelis had improved their positions considerably and completed their encirclement of Egypt's Third Army and the city of Suez. This development led to tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union. As a result, a second ceasefire was imposed cooperatively on October 25 to end the war. At the conclusion of hostilities, Israeli forces were 40 kilometres (25 mi) from Damascus and 101 kilometres (63 mi) from Cairo.

The war had far-reaching implications. The Arab World, which had been humiliated by the lopsided rout of the Egyptian–Syrian–Jordanian alliance in the Six-Day War, felt psychologically vindicated by early successes in the conflict. In Israel, despite impressive operational and tactical achievements on the battlefield, the war effectively ended its sense of invincibility and complacency. The war also challenged many American assumptions; the United States initiated new efforts at mediation and peacemaking. These changes paved the way for the subsequent peace process. The Camp David Accords that followed led to the return of the Sinai to Egypt and normalized relations—the first peaceful recognition of Israel by an Arab country. Egypt continued its drift away from the Soviet Union and left the Soviet sphere of influence entirely.

The Yom-Kippur war, in 1973, was another prophetic shadow picture of the restoration of the 7 year Sabbath cycle. Counting the Ohmer, from 1967, ending on the 6th of October 1973 would be the end of a 7 year Sabbath cycle, perfectly counting from Day of Atonement to Day of Atonement. Not only was YHWH pointing to the 7 year cycle, but also pointing to the 49 years prophetic cycle, counting from the 10th day of the 7th month, or Yom-Kippur, when the war was started. Was YHWH restoring His ‘times and seasons,’ perfectly marking the last Jubilee cycle? If YHWH was marking this cycle, starting from 1967 AD, it would end 2016 AD, with 2017 AD being a year of Jubilee. If YHWH was marking the Jubilee cycle, starting from 1973 AD, on Yom-Kippur, then this cycle would end in 2022 AD, with 2023 AD being a year of Jubilee.
