"This is the interpretation of the thing:
MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and brought it to an end."

Daniel 5:25-26

Chapter 2e: "390, 430, 1150, 1260, 1290, and 1335 Days and Years of our Chart"



On the night mighty Babylon fell to the Persians, this writing appeared on the palace wall: "MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN", written with the finger of God, (Daniel 5:25). The king of Babylon was having a huge drunken party. They felt safe and secure surrounded by the cities massive walls. But suddenly the hand of God came writing on the wall. Revelry became fear. The wicked king and his astrologers were baffled. They could neither read nor interpret the writing!

Then the terrified king called for Daniel the prophet. By the light of a candlestick, Daniel both decoded and interpreted the writing. It foretold the immediate end of Babylon and her king. And so it came to pass. On that same night the king of Babylon was slain by her Persian conquers; a new era was born.


The writing on the palace wall is comparable to the greatest writing of all, the Bible. For like the writing on the wall, some things in the Bible are mysterious and hard to understand apart from God’s help. Only by the light of the candlestick (that is, by the Spirit of God) can a man understand its mysteries.

Most mysteries in the Bible have already been unveiled by the apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ (Mk. 4:11; Rom. 16:25; 1Cor. 2:7; Eph. 1:9; 3:3-9; Col. 1:26-2:2; Revelation 1:20). All further illumination of the Scriptures must therefore conform to and be built upon this finished apostolic foundation (Eph. 2:20), otherwise it is error.

There is one mystery expressly said to be "sealed until the time of the end," (Daniel 12:4, 9-12).

    "Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end…None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand. From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1290 days. Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1335 days" (Daniel 12:9-11).

In this online book, "The Writing on the Wall," the decoding of these and other puzzling bible prophecy numbers are detailed.{1} However, their full interpretation and actual fulfillment await a future day.

This final fulfillment awaits a future day because there are three stages to the detailing of this great mystery (i.e., of Daniel 12). These three stages are again occurring in the same order in which they did when Daniel interpreted the writing on the wall at the fall of Babylon.

First, there is the decoding of the writing itself; (i.e., understanding the function of Bible prophecy numbers).

Secondly, there is the interpretation of that which is decoded, (i.e., the Scriptural interpretation of these numbers).

Thirdly, there is the fulfillment, (i.e., the culminated fulfillment of all things).{2}

By God's grace, this book unravels the first-stage of this mystery, the decoding of the numbers in the bible, with the date of the fall of Babylon, (and hence, "the writing on the wall") its dominate theme.

Furthermore, the second stage has already begun upon completion of this first stage. The understanding of the numbers is giving fresh new insight into all of the scriptures, especially the writings of the prophets.

{1} A gradual increase of light has come concerning the numbers ever since they were first given to the prophets long ago. The difference now is in the sudden detailing of these same numbers (Daniel 12:4).

{2} The revelation of this "time-of-the-end" mystery comes in advance of its full and final fulfillment, otherwise how can they be prepared if the knowledge of it has not been shed abroad in advance? Nevertheless, the full and final application of this revelation awaits that specific people who will live "at the time of the end." For the climax of all things occurs "at the time of the end," in sweeping culmination of all that went before it. (See Daniel 7:3-7 with Revelation 13:1-2).
