"Blessed is he..."

  • The time periods of Daniel 12:7, 11, 12 reach down to the "time of the end" Daniel 12:4, 9. "Happy" (Matthew 5:3), says the angel, is the person who witnesses the dramatic events of the closing scenes of earth's history. Then, those portions of Daniel that were to be sealed would be understood (Daniel 12:4), and soon "the saints of the most High" would "take the kingdom, and posses the kingdom for ever" (Daniel 7:18). (4BC 881)

"...that waiteth..."

  • This implies that the following prophetic period may be expected to continue beyond the end of the 1290 days. If the 1290 and the 1335 days begin at the same time, the latter period reaches to the year 1843, a significant date in relationship to the great advent awakening in America, generally know as the Millerite movement. (4BC 881)

"...to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days."

  • TIME PROPHECY: Prophetic time periods appear frequently in Daniel -- such as the seventy weeks (Daniel 9:24), a time, times, and an half (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 12:14), the 1290 days (Daniel 12:11) and 1335 days (Daniel 12:12), and the 2300 days (Daniel 8:14) -- and there are paralleling time periods in the Revelation -- the five months, forty and two months (Revelation 11:2; 13:5), a thousand two hundred and threescore days (Revelation 11:3; 12:6), three days and an half (Revelation 11:9; Revelation 11:11) -- These are connected, of course, with definite events and activities, and their beginnings or endings are often marked by significant occurrences. These predicted time periods will be referred to as time prophecies, though they are tied inseparably into, and form a part of, the sequence of events depicted in the grand OUTLINE PROPHECIES. They are the inspired measuring lines of prophecy. They constitute the inspired timetable of the centuries. (Froom 32)
