#1260 – 1260 days until the coming of Jesus is foretold in the Bible’s 12:6 verses
1260 days is 3 1/2 years or 42 months. Bible’s 12:6 Verses
One of the most immediately compelling set of evidences revealing the divine perfection in Bible numbering is observed by examining the Bible’s 12:6 verses. Remember, all numbers are symbolic and have meaning and book, chapter and verse numbers line up with verse text. Even the numbers in the text of verses have the same symbolism. I believe God left us undeniable examples of his divine authorship of the Bible. These examples are so strikingly obvious (once you learn they are there) that it’s almost impossible to dismiss them as a product of happenstance or chance. We find this pattern in the Bible’s 12:6 verses.
The number 1,260 is found throughout the Bible in different ways, all apparently pointing to the appointed time of Christ’s return. When expressed in a number of days it represents 42 months or 3 and 1/2 years. Note that the Bible always speaks of months having 30 days each.
Two major verses in scripture point to 1,260 days (3 1/2 years) as a waiting time before Jesus will return. In Revelation 12:6 we see a woman (Israel) fleeing into the wilderness to hide in a place prepared by God for 1,260 days. In Daniel 12:6 Daniel asks how long will this time of tribulation will last and the next verse responds that it will end in “times, time and one-half a time”. Some scholars debate if this reference to time is about 1,260 days, but the 12:6 verse reference and the verse content are pretty convincing evidence it is about 3 and 1/2 hears. It is not a coincidence that both the verses with the same chapter and verse reference point to the same event (period of time). Again, note how the 12:6 reference lines up with the 1260 days/3.5 years in the verse’s text. These two examples might just be an incredible coincidence if we didn’t also have the other of the Bible’s 12.6 verses to see if they fit the pattern.
In the examples I provide below, you will also observe that most of the Bible’s other verses also point to a time when a savior/redeemer comes to help God’s people.
- Revelation 12:6 — speaks of the woman (Israel?) who flees into the wilderness for 1260 days (3.5 years) until the messiah returns (Jesus Christ).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
- Daniel 12:6 — verse; one said “how long to the end of these wonders” or how long to the end? The response given in Daniel 12:7 given by a man clothed in linen that the end will come in “it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished….all these things shall be finished”. A Time, times and a half a time is interpreted as 3 and 1/2 years or 1260 days.
- Matthew 12:6 — it is stated “I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.“. That is, Jesus is standing in the temple. A reference to Jesus return 2000 years ago.
- Isaiah 12:6 — Very similar to Matthew 12:6, in Isaiah 12:6 it is satated “Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.
- 1Samuel 12:6 — we find the LORD again that saved his people by bringing them up out of Egypt. “And Samuel said unto the people, It is the LORD that advanced Moses and Aaron, and that brought your fathers up out of the land of Egypt.“
- Zechariah 12:6 — speaks of the future “Day of the LORD’ when “In that day will I…(punish the wicked and)… and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.
- Acts 12:6 — we find (The LORD?) came to deliver Peter who was bound between two soldiers bound with two chains. (2&2 – the number 22 is almost always a reference to Jesus the Lamb of God). “And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison…”
- Mark 12:6 — Speaks of a landowner who sent his only son to collect what was his from the land (His people). A clear reference to The LORD Jesus future coming – Mark 12:6 — Having yet therefore one son, his well beloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.
I hope after reviewing these verses you are at least asking yourself if this apparent impossible relationship between the 12:6 verse references matching up with the context of the verse text is by accident or design. No one example of the Bible’s divine numbering patterns can convince anyone, but as we observe more of these like reference verse examples, it becomes impossible to dismiss the evidence that God did, in fact, number the Bible.
Look for other examples in my writings for more such amazing evidences.
