"At first my people went down to Egypt to live;
lately, Assyria has oppressed them."
(Isaiah 52:6b)



1335 years:

"Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1335 days," (Daniel 12:12). 

The vision of the 1335 came to Daniel in April of 536 BC, which was 1335 years to the very month from the end of Joseph's 7-year famine, (10:1, 4; 12:12). {Just one month after this vision came to Daniel, the rebuilding of Solomon’s temple began (Ezra 3:8), which was 430 years to the very month after Solomon himself had first begun to build the original temple! (May 966 BC to May 536 BC; 1Kg. 6:1, cf. Exodus 12:41.)}

Babylon fell exactly years (also to the very month) prior to this vision of Daniel. (Autumn of 539 to spr. 536 BC, and plus one month more to the temple rebuilding in May). {This "2˝ years" repeats the timeframe of the Jerusalem siege that also lasted 2˝ years, with yet another month till the fall of the temple! Thus, God reverses the harm Babylon inflicted upon Jerusalem, here illustrated in the recurrence of same time sequences. The decree to return home to Judah occurred in 538 BC,{22} [2Chr. 36:20-23; Ezra 1:1].}

 And so ended the "70 years" of captivity as prophesied by Jeremiah the prophet, (i.e., 606 to 536 BC).

Table 13 "Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1335 days." 

"Famine" |________+_1335_years_______| "Blessing"

1878–1871 BC (7-year famine that includes entering Egypt) + 1335 years = 543–536 BC

(Fall of Babylon, Israel's return from exile,
  and the rebuilding of the temple were from aut. 539 to spr. 536)



Thus fulfilled the word to Jeremiah:

"Therefore, behold, the days come, saith Jehovah, that it shall no more be said, As Jehovah liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; but, As Jehovah liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, (i.e., from Babylonia), and from all the countries whither he had driven them," (Jeremiah 16:14–15; and 23:7–8 too).

And thus there are three numeric witnesses: 

  1. The exact "430" years that elapsed from Solomon’s temple ( as prophesied in Ezekiel 4); 
  2. the prophesied "70" years from the first exile, (606/5 BC); 
  3. and the "1335" years from Joseph’s famine.

And these three numeric witnesses agree and intertwine as one! (I.e., the 430 less the 70 equals 360 [the 360 being the shortened form of Ezekiel's 390, i.e., without a leap month], and the 1335 less the 70 approximates the 1260). Together, these three timeframes bore witness to God's great faithfulness--- that God’s set time of deliverance had come. God kept His promise to Judah concerning "how long?" the captivity would be, and God will keep His promise to you too!


Hence, the bible-prophecy numbers of 7, 40, 70, 360, 390, 430, 1150, 1260, 1270, 1278, 1290, "3˝ times," and 1335 years are all in alignment and agree together both in theme and number as starting from the seven-year famine of Joseph! Later, we examine how these bible-prophecy numbers interweave within timeframes of equal value, though on different ratios. This is nothing short of astounding! Nevertheless, in the next chapter we explore something still more astounding! ---The mirror!

Ezekiel-seige-jerusalem.gif (29607 bytes) The temple was captured and burned 30 actual days (31 Bible-Prophecy) after Jerusalem itself was taken.{23} Thus it took a total 930 Bible-Prophecy days till the temple was captured, (i.e., 899 till the fall of the city, + 31 more = 930 days); but, 945 actual days, (i.e., 915 days till the fall of the city, + 30 = 945). 

Therefore consider this amazing fact, that, just as the 1290 days of Daniel 12:11 is made up of the 900 (Bible-Prophecy) days of the siege of Jerusalem (i.e., 899 exact) plus the 390 of Ezekiel’s siege, even so the 1335 days of Daniel 12:12 is likewise made up of the 945 (actual) days till the fall of the temple plus the same 390 of Ezekiel, (i.e., 390 + 945 = 1335 days total.)
