What is this mysterious 1,335 days? Is it a number of years that ended in the 1920s with the establishment of a new denomination or sect? Or does it have something to do with the six-day war of the Jews that ended in 1967. Or is it something that only God knows and that someday it will be revealed to the church or the Pope?
[First] [Previous] [Next]
As we shall see it is none of those nor could it be. In order to comprehend the real truth about the 1,335 we must abandon all ideas that try to turn days into years and all traditional prophecies about which many wannabee prophets have written many books.
I sat down with a church minister before my Dad’s funeral, and I mentioned in the conversation that the key to understanding prophecy is understanding the Feasts and High days and their relationship to the revealed calendar. He look at me and I could tell this puzzled him. Then he said, “Oh yes, we do need to spend some time on that.”
Then later, a friend of mine came to my house and with him was a relative who was a Baptist Sunday school teacher, apparently from some big church somewhere. My friend was impressed with my book and he wanted his relative to see me. The Sunday school teacher asked me, after looking at the book, “What is this book about?” I replied, “It is about the great event that will take place at the end of the 1,335 days.” He put on the same puzzled expression as the minister and commented, “Oh yes, that is an important subject.”
Neither of these had any knowledge about these things other than they had heard about the Feast Days and about the 1,335 days.
The prior post in this series left with this statement given to Daniel which he wrote in chapter 12:
“Blessed is he [or she] who is waiting earnestly and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.”
Here is the shocking truth about when that day is and what it means for all creation. Those of you who have read my book already know what day that is.
In the prior posts in this series I assembled all the tools, facts, and prophecies that led up to this very special day. It really is a day worth waiting for, but we must start now and not put it off. We must make that day and time the biggest target of our mental and spiritual focus, attention and energy.
But first a little review.
The Last Seven Years of our Age and then some …
All end-time events that are tied to time periods, reference the time on the calendar revealed to our father Enoch. Without that revelation we cannot understand the important sequence of events of the end of our age.
There are three primary mile posts! These are not picked out of thin air. Instead, critical events happen at “appointed times” then we chart either backward in time or forward. The biggest marker is the Day of Yahua. The mile posts are:
- The day when the two witnesses start their three and one half years prophecy. This starts on the spring equinox, which is the first day of the first month on the revealed calendar.
- The day when the two witnesses are killed by the beast [great nation or empire]. This is the fall equinox, which is first day of the seventh month on the revealed calendar. It is also the Feast of Trumpets or Shouting.
- The Day of Yahua, which comes as a day of deliverance that ends the three and one half year time of the beast’s authority and power. This day is the first day of the first month and the spring equinox. It is also the first day of the eighth age.
There are also three other periods; one is independent of the revealed calendar and the other two are tied directly to it.
- The day when the sacrifices cease. This starts a time of counting 2,300 evenings and mornings independent of any calendar and continues until the Day of Yahua.
- The 1,290 days period that starts after the day when the sacrifices cease. The end of the 1290 days is the day when the abomination is set up in the Set-apart city. This comes during the time when the false prophet gives power to the beast sometime between the day the two witnesses are murdered and the Day of Yahua.
- The 1,335 days is a period related to a key event in the first list, but, as we shall see, it is tied to the last three and one half years. The 1,335 days is equal to three and one half years plus two and one half months. That means that it fits neatly into the end-time sequence of events.
More Signs Tied to ALL the Descendents of Jacob
The Feasts and the High days are appointed times and signs. These signs were to be closely associated with the 12 tribes of Jacob. They were spiritually married to Yahua by a covenant. The people of all the tribes of Israel, not Jews only, appears as a great and wondrous sign in heaven: “a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head.” (Revelation 12)
Some say this was Mary. But that is grossly incorrect. The sign included the woman, who is Israel, and the rest is a description of the relationship of the sun, moon and stars. The life of Israel, day after day, week after week, month after month, and year after year was “clothed” with perpetual events that started with the spring equinox that marked the new year on the 4th day of the week. Then three days later came the weekly Sabbath. Then came Passover, and so on. This was the clothing of the woman. Anyone who came to visit the people of Israel would have seen this garment covering all of Israel. And this would have marked them as a nation different from all other nations on earth. Also as noted, the calendar is solar, not lunar, the moon is in a subordinate position, and the crown of stars are the twelve months, each with its own star or constellation.
Because the Pharisees imposed the Babylonian calendar on Judah and the church the Roman calendar on the other “lost” nations of Israel, the woman walks today, naked and blind, in darkness carrying the moon on her back and no longer wearing the crown. But, this, too, will pass away and that is good news.
Who wants to know about this special time of the end?
Why would anyone want to know what will happen in the last several years of this age? I look at it as a blessing. Not everyone will understand these times, but those who are wise and have understanding will. Those who know will be aware that when they see these things, they will know that we are in the final “week” given to Daniel in the 70 weeks prophecy. If you know the truth now, then you know exactly what to look for. For that reason it is only revealed now — before that time comes on us. It will come shortly.
If a ram’s horn is blown in a city, do the people not tremble? If there is calamity in a city, shall not Yahua have done it? For the Master, Yahua, does no matter unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. A lion has roared! Who is not afraid? The Master, Yahua, has spoken! Who would not prophesy? Amos 3:6-8
A New Temple or Tabernacle and Altar in Jerusalem?
Another event with no calendar marker is the rebuilding of a Temple or tabernacle structure with an altar on the “Temple Mount” in Jerusalem. It does not make sense that this would be a great structure like Solomon’s or Herod’s temple. After all this place is going to split in half when Yahua’s feet touch the Mount of Olives. (Zechariah 14) The building of a temple-like structure has no time period associated with it. But after it is built and is functioning, the real event to look for is when the two witnesses start to prophesy and three and a half years later they will be killed.
Why then all the noise about a “temple?” The original Tabernacle or Tent of Meeting came to be because of carefully detailed instructions given to Moses. Then later King David desired to build a House for Yahua using the pattern given to Moses, but David was prevented from building this because he was a reckoned a “bloody man.” David’s son, Solomon, carried out his father’s wishes and did build a magnificent building that not only demonstrated the spiritual connection the nation had with Yahua, but also became a sign to all the nations. The King built the Temple, the priests carried out the services. A powerful spiritual and political combination.
But shortly thereafter the nation of Israel split in two. Ten tribes of the northern Kingdom of Israel split away from the two tribes, Judah and Benjamin, of the southern part. These two tribes plus some of the Levites formed the Kingdom of Judah and became known as the Jews. From that time on the rest of the world has been confused and has mistakenly called Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and others “Jews,” which they were not.
The Assyrians invaded the northern kingdom, which was called the House of Israel, and took the people captive. The people from the northern kingdom later dispersed to Europe, Russia, and finally to the United States of America, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. After the Assyrians, the Babylonians came and took the House of Judah captive, cleaned out the Temple, and destroyed it and Jerusalem. Never was the Shechinah present in the next temples as it was in the Tabernacle and in the Temple built by Solomon.
Should we be looking for a temple to be built before the end of the seventh age of Enoch’s vision? Or should we be looking for something else?
The start of the two witnesses prophecy is an event mile stone and that starts on the first day of a new solar year on the spring equinox. Enoch’s revealed calendar tracks the events.
The next event is a “cessation of sacrifices.” When this happens it would start the counting of the 2,300 evenings and mornings to the beginning of the next age when the righteous are given authority and ruler. But what does the “2,300 evenings and mornings” really mean? It is certainly an end of the age event as the messenger told Daniel but is it a physical or spiritual event? And is the supposed “temple” that will appear at the end of our age a building or something far more powerful. Keep reading.
Following that will be the murder of the two witnesses in Jerusalem. This will happen, according to revealed calendar on the first day of the seventh month, which is the Feast of Trumpets and is also the fall equinox. Three and one half days later, in view of the world, the two witnesses will be raised up and a voice will tell them to come up to heaven and they will ascend.
This is also the time when the counting of the 1,335 days starts. The Feast of Trumpets or “Shouting” is the time when the beast/dragon makes war against the righteous and the elect. The shouting is the strong cries and prayers of the descendants of Jacob to their Elohim to save them from this awful time and evil. It is a time of great spiritual battles and of great trouble on the earth. Three and a half years later the beast/dragon and those who joined with them take their war against Yahua and his armies and are defeated. Also at this time the righteous and elect are raised from the dead.
Therefore, when the Day of Yahua comes, three and a half years or 1,260 days of the 1,335 days have now passed and only 75 days remain.
What happens at the end of the 1,335 days?
There is only one interval of 1,335 days on the revealed calendar with the Feasts and Holy days applied to it. It is the time from the Feast of Trumpets, when the two witnesses are killed, and then 1,260 days plus 75 days later, brings us to the first Feast of Weeks, also called the Feast of Firstfruits, on the 15th day of third month of the first year of the next age! This is the only time in these prophecies that spans both ages!
This is what has been sealed up until our day and time, and is now revealed to all who have ears that hear and eyes that see.
It is a sign and a message to the those who have wisdom and understanding. Those who hear and understand this message now have knowledge that can help them through this time of great tribulation that will come shortly upon the whole earth.
What is so significant about that day?
It is a double Feast. It is the Feast of Weeks, and it is also the Feast of Firstfruits. Both reached their most significance at this time in the history of the human people.
The Feast of Weeks
This is a celebration of the first seven weeks of Enoch’s vision. The Law instructs the people to “Count” seven complete weeks starting with the week after the Feast of Unleavened Bread and after the first weekly Sabbath after the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Seven full weeks later ends with the weekly Sabbath, and the very next day, the first day of the week, is the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Firstfruits. This is the 50th day and so some adopted the name as Pentecost. However, the original names are much more important. Thus the Feast of Weeks signifies the completion of the first seven weeks or ages. The very next day, the day of this feast, also represents the start of the great Eighth age. The counting of the seven weeks is a memorial of the time of human rule and the keeping of this Feast and High day allows the people and the nations to compare the past with the present right-ruling ages until the time of the new heavens and the new earth.
The Feast of Firstfruits
This Feast, which happens on the same day as the Feast of Weeks, is very unusual. This is the day the entire creation has waited for. It is the day when the righteous will be revealed to the world and presented before their Father in heaven. These are those who overcame during the time of the first seven ages. During this time they gained wisdom and understanding and separated themselves from the world and its unclean and crooked ways. Some came out of the Babylon religions. These are all the righteous from all nations, tribes and languages. In the Book of Revelation they are called the “innumerable multitude.” Even though the greatest time of trouble in the world, even greater than the flood, happens at the end of this age, there has been a time of great tribulation or distress from the very beginning. It started with the trouble that Adam and Eve got into and the murder of their son, Abel, and it ends on the Day of Yahua.
Before Christians get too comfortable in their fallacious hope of a “rapture” that will “take them out this time of trouble and guarantee their place in the Kingdom”, think about this: the so-called “Church age” or “Age of Grace” is nothing less than the Age of Apostasy that Enoch saw in his vision. It is the seventh and last age before the great change to right-ruling. This means that all people around the earth who are engaged in religious activity need to deeply reconsider their current spiritual position, in other words, “repent and flee from the wrath to come.” The proclamations by a Pope that “the only path to salvation is through the Catholic church” is not truth. It is a deception to lure people under their control. It is counter to salvation! Also the so-called “apostolic succession through Peter” is also false. The only succession is through Paul the Pharisee, who learned little to nothing from Peter.
Since Man walked this earth there has been only one way to salvation and this is righteousness, and that means right-doing that comes as a natural product of right-being, combined with wisdom, understanding and knowledge.
The Torah Speaks of That Day
There are some details about this great event that we need to know. After the Feast of Unleavened Bread ends, on the first day of the following week, a special event was to happen each year. A sheaf of wheat was presented to EL as the Wave Sheaf. This was done by waving the sheaf in an overhead ascending motion. This symbolized the presenting of the Firstfruit or Firstborn of the harvest and is symbolic of the Firstborn Son raising from the dead and appearing before the Father. This is from Leviticus 23 and is part of what is to be done after the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
And Eyahuwah spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and you shall say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I give you, and shall reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest to the priest. And he shall wave the sheaf before Eyahuwah, for your acceptance. On the morrow [next day] after the Sabbath, the priest waves it.
This was what Yahushua [Jesus] reminded Mary Magdalene in the garden on the after He had been raised from the dead:
“Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father. But go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, to My Elohim and your Elohim.’” John 20:17 The Scriptures
First understand that Yahua became Yahushua, the one we call Jesus. Yahua is the One who made the covenants with our father’s, including Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Yahua came to the earth and was born, not in December, but during the Feast of Booths or Tabernacles after the 15th day of the seventh month on the revealed calendar. He is the One who spoke to Moses and to the descendants of Jacob at Mount Sinai. Then at the right time He came to His people to fulfill the terms and conditions of the covenants:
And the Word became flesh and pitched his tent among us. John 1:14
The last part is a literal translation and is a reference to the Feast of Tabernacles [Tents] or Booths during which days He was born.
In this context let us now examine further what is written in the Torah in the book of Leviticus:
And on that day when you wave the sheaf, you shall prepare a male lamb a year old, a perfect one, as a burnt offering to Eyahuwah, and its grain offering: two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, and offering made by fire to Eyahuwah, a sweet fragrance, and its drink offering: one-fourth of a hin of wine. And you do NOT eat bread of roasted grain or fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your Elohim — a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwelling.
The eating of “bread of roasted grain or fresh grain” was prohibited beginning with the next day after the close of the Feast of Unleavened Bread for the following four days. Then on the first day of the week the Wave Sheaf is offered along with the appropriate sacrifices and this becomes the first day of the counting off the “seven weeks” and that counting ends with the Feast of Firstfruits:
And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves seven complete Sabbaths [weeks].
In other words, the counting starts with the week that begins after the Sabbath that comes during the week when the wave sheaf is offered.
Until the morrow [next day] after the seventh Sabbath you count fifty days; then you shall bring a new grain offering to Eyahuwah.
It is this new grain offering that reveals why the day that ends the 1,335 days is one of the greatest days yet to happen in the history of humanity.
There is only One assigned to make this a part of our life and that is Eyahuwah. From before there was a heaven and earth, He was Chosen to raise up Sons of EL from the “stones” of the universe. The Firstfruits of that enormous project will be revealed on the Feast of Firstfruits at the end of the 1,335 days revealed to Daniel and sealed until this time.
