The 1260 Synchronical Years

 

 Chapter 17

Thus Bishop Newton styled the symbols of time, times, and half a time; one thousand two hundred sixty days; and forty two months. Not just because they all equal the same number but because they accompany symbols that exist during the same time and therefore synchronize.

It was early understood that a time stood for a year, times stood for two years because it is dual in the Aramaic original, not a simple plural, and half a time is equal to half a year. When the symbol was first given the calendar was calculated with a three hundred sixty day year. Thus three and one half years would have 1260 days. The symbols are the same.

 

 

Forty two times thirty is also equal to 1260. Thus three and a half years, forty two months and 1260 days are all the same symbol.

These symbols appear in the following scriptures whose times of fulfillment therefore synchronize:

 

 

Dan. 7:24. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be different from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

 

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 a time.

 

 

The time of the little horn subduing three kings and dominating the other seven is taken to be the Papacy gaining control of the Exarchate of Ravenna, the kingdom of the Lombards, and the Roman senate and dominating European politics for one thousand two hundred and sixty years from 533 to 1793.

 

 

Isaac Newton, the scientist, identified the Papacy as the little horn of Daniel but he says that he did not become the horn until he acquired the three states which made up the Papal dominions for over 1,000 years, (755 to 1870).*

* Newton, Isaac; Prophecies of Holy Writ; Library of the University of Notre Dame, South Bend; published in 1665. Quotation from part one, pg 364 follows:
 

“By the conversion of the ten kingdoms to the Roman religion, the Pope only enlarged his spiritual dominion, and did not yet rise up as a horn of the beast. It was his temporal dominion, which made him one of the horns: and this kingdom he acquired in the latter half of the eighth century, by subduing three of the former horns as above.

And now being arrived at a temporal dominion, and a power above all human judicature, with a look more stout than his fellows, — and times and laws were henceforward given into his hands for a time, times, and half a time, or three times and a half; that is, for 1,260 solar years… After which the judgment is to sit and they shall take away his dominion, not at once but by degrees, And the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdom shall, by degrees be given unto the people of the saints of the most high, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all kingdoms and dominions shall serve him.”

Rev. 12:14 “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. “
