Deep space visitor to our solar system captured by space telescope
By Richard Gray, 20 Feb 2010
The Widefield Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) began its scan of the entire sky on January 14 in a bid to help astronomers spot previously unseen objects...
The 9ft long space telescope is using infrared light...
Among the first images to be beamed back were the red streak of a comet, called Siding Spring, as it races through our solar system, leaving a 10 million mile long tail of glowing dust in its wake....
In December last year Siding Spring passed 116 million miles from the Earth, just one and a quarter times the distance of the Earth from the sun.
Netanyahu also declared to the people of Europe and the world that the prophecies of Ezekiel 37 have been fulfilled. The Holocaust, he said, represented the "dry bones" and "graves" of the Jewish people, and out of that horror the State of Israel was resurrected, just as the Lord said would happen through the Hebrew Prophet Ezekiel. Rarely has any world leader given a major address on an international stage declaring End Times prophecies from the Bible have come true. But that is exactly what Netanyahu did.

I AM TRYING TO UNDERSTAND HOW "THIS GENERATION SHALL NOT PASS BEFORE ALL THESE THINGS TAKE PLACE" AND THAT A GENERATION IS , AT MOST, 48.3 YEARS ADDED TO 1967 COMES OUT TO 2015, AND YET YOU STATE--I HAVE COPIED THIS FROM YOUR LATEST P.& C.
"For there to be 7 months between Tishri 1 and the following Nisan 1, that year has to be a Leap Year with the 13th month, Adar II. That is why Dan 12:11 says that there will be 1290 days instead of the expected 1260. That extra month is Adar II, 5776, the month preceding the Second Advent on Nisan 1, 5776. That day begins the Jubilee Year, because 75 days later, Daniel will stand in his inheritance in Israel. It looks like the Lord built a good case for the Second Advent being on Nisan 1, 5776, the first day of the Regnal, Sacred, and Jubilee Years. The extra 30 days and the need for a Jubilee Year to follow a Sabbatic year seems to lock in 5776/5777 as the Jubilee, and 1967 + 50 = 2017. 2017 - 7 = 2010, this year. We are almost home.
"Let's run over that again. If Nisan 1, 5776 to Nisan 1, 5777 is the Jubilee Year, the preceding year must be a Sabbatic Year. 5775 is Sabbatic. Thus the Jubilee can start in 5776. It would be announced on the Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015, ten days after the Day of God's Wrath. This seems to lock in the date of the Jubilee Year. In Mt. 24:3, Jesus was asked what would be the sign of his coming and the consummation of the age. He answered with the Parable of the Fig Tree. Israel grew leaves, Sinai, Gaza Strip, Golan Heights, and West Bank in the Six-Day War of 1967. That was the sign of Jesus' coming and the consummation of the age. 1967 + 50 = 2017. Israel will be put back on her land in the Jubilee Year, so the Jubilee Year should start at the Second Advent. Look at these numbers: 1897 + 120 = 2017, 1897 + 50 = 1947, year of the British Mandate for Palestine, 1947 + 20 = 1967, year of the Six-Day War, 1967 + 50 = 2017, the Jubilee. Things are coming together."
THAT 50 YEARS (A JUBILEE) SHOULD BE USED FROM 1967. WOULD THAT NOT EXCEED THE GENERATION?? IN WHICH THIS GENERATION SHALL NOT PASS BEFORE ALL IS FULFILLED BY 2 YEARS? OR, DID JESUS MEAN THAT HE WOULD COME AFTER ALL WOULD PASS
I'M NOT SURE IF I STATED CORRECTLY WHAT I WANTED TO KNOW BUT , ANYWAY, WHY ARE YOU NOW USING A JUBILEE INSTEAD OF THE LENGTH OF A GENERATION?? PLEASE CLARIFY, THANKS FOR ALL YOUR DILIGENT WORK HELPING OTHERS TO UNDERSTAND THE WORD OF GOD. PEACE, AND MAY YOU BE CORRECT THIS TIME BECAUSE THE PEOPLE LOOKING FOR THE ANSWERS (TRUTH?) NEED SOME SANITY TO HANG ON TO IN THIS WORLD. I HOPE YOU MAKE IT TO THE RAPTURE. AFTER SO MANY YEARS LOOKING FORWARD TO IT, YOU DESERVE TO WITNESS IT. BYE AND THANKS.
I am 81. Ed is 85. I hope we both make it to the Rapture. Please Lord, let it be so. In Jesus' name, Amen.
> > I AM TRYING TO UNDERSTAND HOW "THIS GENERATION SHALL NOT PASS BEFORE ALL THESE THINGS TAKE PLACE"
In Mt 24:3 (LITV), Jesus was asked, "What is the sign of Your coming and of THE END OF THE AGE?" He answered with the Fig Tree Parable.
In the LITV, Mt. 24:32-34 says, "But learn the parable of the fig tree: When its branch (klados, scion broken off for grafting; i.e., modern Israel grafted back into her old rootstock) becomes tender (apalos, young; i.e., no more than 19, as she was in 1957) and it puts out leaves (grows, as in 1967, she grew Gaza Strip, Sinai, Golan Heights and West Bank), you know that the summer is near (the Six-Day War was June 5-10 [Iyar 26f], summer was June 21); so also you, when you see all these things, know that it (the kingdom of God; Luke 21:31) is near at the doors (symbol of the two Raptures; Rev. 3:8). Truly I say to you, In no way will this generation (48.33 years; Mt. 1:17) pass away until all these things have occurred."
1967 + 48.33 = 2015.33. Iyar 26f plus the extra 4 months, Sivan, Tamuz, Av and Elul, brings us to Tishri 1, 5776 (Sept. 14, 2015). That seems to be the most important, event-packed day - ever.
Jesus will receive his kingdom while he is still in Heaven (Dan 7:13,14). He will call a "general assembly" in Heaven (Heb 12:23 KJV). The First-Trump saints will be called from one end of Heaven to the other (Mt. 24:31). The Last-Trump saints will be called up from one end of Earth to the other (Mark 13:27). During a respectful silence in both Heaven and Earth, Jesus will be seated as Judge at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Believers in Heaven will receive their rewards while the unbelievers on Earth get the reward for their unbelief, the Wrath of God (Rev. 11:15f).
THE END OF THIS AGE
It looks like the Wrath of God, the two asteroids of Rev. 8:8-11, will hit Earth that same day, the great and terrible Day of the Lord. Impact day (probably Sept. 14, 2015) is the end of this Age. The 48.33 years works out just right. I think this Age ends and the Millennium begins on that Feast of Trumpets. Like Solomon, Jesus will purge his kingdom at its beginning.
SEVEN MONTHS AFTER THE END OF THIS AGE
I think he will come to Earth 7 months later (Eze. 39:12,13), on the first day of the Jubilee Year. Armageddon will take place, the Beast and False Prophet will be thrown in the Lake of Fire, Satan will be chained, then the Hebrews will be put back in Israel. Agape
Incoming e-mail, Re: Pre-Trib Rapture
Wow, I have to say I am glad I emailed you. You have really valid points. I can't say I that I agree about the date of the rapture, since no one shall know the day or the hour, but I have an open mind, and realize that this could possibly be the 2nd year of the tribulation.
I did get to thinking about something I heard from a guy named Perry Stone. www.voe.org and in his latest video he talks about signs in the stars, moon, sun etc. and he said something along the lines of, way back in the day, they would send two witnesses out to testify when the first sliver of the moon was visible in the sky, because no one would know the day or the hour/
Then I thought, ok well we may not know the day or the hour but lets just say its late on a Saturday night here in the US, its going to be Sunday in another part of the world. Whether that has anything to do with the rapture or not, who knows. I still kind of feel that God doesn't want us to know when we will be taken, so I'm not going to be setting any dates on the rapture, but as for the Lunar Eclipse in 2015...very good evidence for the end of the tribulation, which is also somewhat explained in the newest Perry Stone Video.
So I appreciate your input, and hope everything goes well for you in the future!
> > no one shall know the day or the hour
We might not know, but Mt 24:36,37 doesn't tell us that. It says, "But of that day and hour KNOWETH no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."
"KNOWETH" is present tense. On that day, no man knew. It has nothing to do with today.
What did Noah know? First, he was told that man had 120 years, so he knew the year. Gen 6:3 says,"And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years."
In Gen 7:4, Noah was told the day. It says, "For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth." That day was Cheshvan 17.
Gen 7:10-13 says, "And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth. In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the SECOND MONTH, the SEVENTEENTH DAY of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark; "
Maybe the 120 years could apply in our days. The first Zionist Congress met in 1897.
Since 120 years is a block of time, it would be figured using Inclusive Reckoning, where the first year is counted as year number one. 1897 + 119 = 2016. I think that will be the year of the Second Advent on Nisan 1, 5776 (April 9, 2016). Armageddon is war between Christ's army and Satan's army, so it starts at the Second Advent.
Are we given any clues to the day of the Rapture? Yes. In the Preview of the Rapture, John was caught up on Sunday.
Rev 1:9-11 says, "I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last".
The First-Trump Rapture seems to be on the Lord's day (Sunday), and the Last-Trump Rapture seems to be on the Day of the Lord that is the Day of God's Wrath (Rev. 6:17; 7:14). I think the date of the 2nd Rapture will be Tishri 1, 5776 (Sept 14, 2015).
Eze 39:12,13 shows that there are 7 months between the Day of God's Wrath and the Second Advent. There are 7 months between Tishri 1, 5776 and the following Nisan 1, 5776, because 5776 is a Leap Year with the 13th month, Adar II.
The year of the Second Advent will be a Jubilee Year. The Israelites will be put back in their plot of land in Israel in the Jubilee Year (Dan. 12:13). Therefore Nisan 1, 5776 to Nisan 1, 5777 can be the Jubilee Year.
We can check that, for a Jubilee Year has to be preceded by a Sabbatic Year. 5775 is a Sabbatic Year. We're OK so far.
Mt. 24:3 (Darby) says, "And as he was sitting upon the mount of Olives the disciples came to him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be, and WHAT IS THE SIGN OF THY COMING AND THE COMPLETION OF THE AGE?" Jesus answered with the Fig Tree Parable. Israel, grafted into her old rootstock, grew leaves (Gaza Strip, Sinai, Golan Heights and West Bank) in the Six-Day War of 1967 (5727).
5727 + 50 = 5777. Nisan 1, 5777 (Tue, 28 March 2017) seems to be the conclusion of the Jubilee Year.
5726 was a Sabbatic Year. Adding 49 years brings us to 5775 (a Sabbatic Year), so Nisan 1, 5776 to Nisan 1, 5777 could be the Jubilee Year. That checks out OK.
5777 - 7 = 5770, this year. None of the Feast days this spring will be on Sunday, and there will not be a Feast day on Sunday until 2012. However, Ascension Day (Iyar 25, May 9, 2010) will be on Sunday. I think it looks good for the First-Trump Rapture. Just maybe we can know the year and the day, but not the hour.
In Mark 13:33-37, Jesus said, "Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even (6 PM), or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing (3 AM), or in the morning (6 AM): Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch."
Did the porter know the day but not the hour? It looks that way to me. I'm watching. Can you think of any more clues? Agape

"ALL THE SIGNS HAVE COME ABOUT"
MR. ADNAN OKTAR'S JOINT PRESS CONFERENCE WITH ISRAELI DELEGATION
(January 20th, 2010) (emphasis mine)
ADNAN OKTAR (from Turkey): We love the ones who believe in Allah and they love us, too. This is how it will be until the Last Day. WE ARE IN THE ERA OF THE MESSIAH (MOSCHIACH), IN THE ERA OF THE HAZRAT MAHDI (PBUH). THE MESSIAH'S APPEARANCE IS DESCRIBED IN DETAIL IN THE TORAH AND ALL THE SIGNS HAVE COME ABOUT. HAZRAT MAHDI (PBUH) AND HAZRAT MESSIAH (PBUH) ARE THE SAME PERSON. This is indicated in the Qur'an, and also clearly stated in the Torah....
ADNAN OKTAR: ...BELIEVERS PREVAIL IN THIS CENTURY ...attempts to break up Israel and Turkey are all vain plots...
ADNAN OKTAR: Iran made an official statement saying "atomic bomb is forbidden." Consequently, whoever drops an atomic bomb on Israel will find us against him. No one can do such a thing, no one can dream of it. Let alone actually doing, no one can even dream of it. From now on we will never let anyone in the region or in the world to do such a thing. From now on there is no such thing. WE ARE IN THE AGE OF PEACE, BROTHERHOOD AND LOVE. This kind of things will never happen....
AYOOB KARA (probably from Israel): So, we came here to say that the peace and to live together and to be together and support each other is the way that we need and we hope to be in good touch with the religious people. Here between Turkish like Mr. Oktar the same steps he is thinking. He is thinking that WE NEED PEOPLE THAT SAY ALL THE TIME 'LET US BE TOGETHER, LET'S GO TOGETHER WITH THE STEPS OF PEACE'. There are enough places for all the citizens here in the Middle East and the world to live together. WE HAVE ONE GOD FOR ALL OF US, SO IT IS EXACTLY THE TIME TO COME HERE TO STOP THIS MISTAKE that happened before 2 days or one week because nothing changed between the population between Israel and the Turkey...
ADNAN OKTAR: THE AGE OF THE SYSTEM OF THE MAHDI (PBUH) AND THE MESSIAH (PBUH) WILL BEGIN. When we talk about the system of the Mahdi (pbuh) and the Messiah (pbuh), people regard it as a dream. Yes, it is like a dream in a sense. There will be extraordinary improvements in arts, science, aesthetics and beauty. The Torah has explained it in great detail. We will see this beauty in fine detail. WE WILL SEE THAT DEMOCRACY IS MORE EXCELLENT AND FREEDOM OF IDEAS IS MORE EXCELLENT. We will see that the conception of love will reach the most excellent level insha'Allah. WE WILL SEE THAT ALL THE BLOODSHED AND THE SUFFERING WERE FOR NOTHING....
ADNAN OKTAR: JEWS ARE DESCENDANTS OF THE PROPHETS. THERE IS NO QUESTION OF DESTROYING THE DESCENDANTS OF THE PROPHETS WITH ATOMIC BOMBING. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN. ACCORDING TO THE QUR'AN...YOU WILL CONTINUE TO EXIST UNTIL THE LAST DAY. There are Jews until the Last Day and YOU, BY ALLAH'S LEAVE, ARE IN OUR CUSTODY, UNDER OUR PROTECTION. By Allah's leave, WE'LL NEVER ALLOW ANY HARM BEING INFLICTED ON JEWS. NEITHER ON CHRISTIANS. By no means. And WE'LL NEVER ALLOW FIGHTING.
ADNAN OKTAR: There is no reason why Israel and Palestine should not be brothers. Furthermore, they are both the descendants of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh); one of them is from the sons of Ishmael (pbuh), Arabs are the descendants of the sons of Ishmael, the other side, Jews are the sons of Israel, they are the descendants of Jacob (pbuh). Consequently the war is entirely artificial and evil.

You might want to check to see if their other statements hold water. The first two things I checked were wrong. Abraham was born two years after Noah died. In Noah's day, Tishri 1 was the first month of the year, and so the "second month" would have been Cheshvan. There is no way I can get Sivan 6, Pentecost, out of Cheshvan 27, the day Noah came out of the Ark.
Gen 8:14-22 says, "And in the SECOND MONTH, ON THE SEVEN AND TWENTIETH DAY OF THE MONTH (i.e., CHESHVAN 27), was the earth dried. And God spake unto Noah, saying, Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee. Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth. And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him: Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark. And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."
> > Ruth (Gentile bride) laid at feet of Boaz and asked him to marry her!"
Boaz was winnowing barley that night, not wheat. He gave Ruth 6 measures of barley. There is a good chance that this was on Iyar 25, Ascension Day, rather than Sivan 6, Pentecost. Boaz would not have been working on a feast day, Pentecost. Seeing 2 things wrong, I quickly decided that the statement that "Every major change of dispensations happened on Pentecost" just might be wrong. Agape

Re: David Landry (4 Feb 2010)
"Again, what about the 7 years to burn the weapons for fuel."

Also its is going to take 7 months to bury all of the bodies that God supernaturally destroys by 100 lb hailstones. This has most, if not all, prophecy teachers and theologians at placing the Gog- Magog war in the first year of the tribulation.
I think the Gog/Magog War will take place at the end of the Great Tribulation, right after the Last-Trump Rapture on Tishri 1, 5776 (Sept 14, 2015). There will be a worldwide earthquake that will be so destructive that not only will all the tall buildings fall worldwide, EVERY WALL will fall.
DAY OF GOD'S WRATH, TWO ASTEROID IMPACTS
Eze. 38:18-20 says, "And it shall come to pass at the SAME TIME when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that MY FURY shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of MY WRATH have I spoken, Surely in that day (probably Tishri 1, 5776; Sept. 14, 2015) there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel (the asteroid of Rev. 8:8 will impact the Mediterranean Sea); So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence (paniym, face, i.e., the Sign of the Son of Man will be seen sitting on his throne in the sky), and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and EVERY WALL SHALL FALL TO THE GROUND." The cities will be shambles.
WHEN THE TOWERS FALL
Isa 30:25 says, "And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in THE DAY OF THE GREAT SLAUGHTER, WHEN THE TOWERS FALL" (probably Tishri 1, 5776; Sept. 14, 2015).
WEAPONS WILL BE BURNED DURING THE FIRST 7 YEARS OF THE MILLENNIUM, 2015 - 2022
Eze 39:1-13 says, "Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD. So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, IT IS COME, AND IT IS DONE, saith the Lord GOD; THIS IS THE DAY (Day of the Lord, Day of God's Wrath, Feast of Trumpets, probably Tishri 1, 5776; Sept. 14, 2015), whereof I have spoken. And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall (in the future, i.e., in the Millennium) burn them with fire SEVEN YEARS: So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for THEY SHALL BURN THE WEAPONS with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they BURY GOG and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog."
JESUS RETURNS IN GLORY 7 MONTHS AFTER THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH
Eze 39:12,13 says, "SEVEN MONTHS (Tishri 1 to Nisan 1 in a Leap Year) shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified (i.e., at the Second Advent), saith the Lord GOD."
The tetrad of Blood Moon eclipses on Feast days mark 2014 and 2015. There will be no more like them the rest of this century.
It looks like the Day of God's Wrath will be on the Feast of Trumpets, Monday, Tishri 1, 5776 (Sept. 14, 2015), and the Second Advent will be on the first day of the Jubilee Year, Saturday, Nisan 1, 5776 (April 9, 2015). It would be announced on the preceeding Day of Atonement, Tishri 10, 5776 (Sept. 23, 2015).

MY PROPOSED SCHEDULE OF TRIBULATION EVENTS
1. First-Trump Rapture during the 1260-day rule of the first beast of Rev. 13, the one who "is" in Rev. 17:10
2. The covenant is strengthened
3. Mid-Trib + 3.5 days, Rapture of God's two witnesses
4. 1040-day rule of the False Prophet
5. Last-Trump Rapture as Day of God's Wrath begins
6. Gog and Magog War on Day of God's Wrath
7. Second Advent 7 months later, on 1st day of Jubilee Year

Roughing it out, 2017 - 7 years = 2010, this year. I'm hoping for the First-Trump Rapture on Ascension Day, Iyar 25, 5770 (Sun, May 9, 2010).
Mt. 24:3 (Darby) says, "And as he was sitting upon the mount of Olives the disciples came to him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be, and WHAT IS THE SIGN OF THY COMING AND THE COMPLETION OF THE AGE?
Jesus answered with the Fig Tree Parable. When Israel was grafted into her old rootstock in the promised land in 1948, and then, when 19 years old, the last year she could be considered young, Israel grew leaves in 1967, it was about 50 years to the Jubilee Year when Jesus would return. 1967 + 50 = 2017 (5727 + 50 = 5777).
I say "about 50 years," because we are dealing with estimated time (30 days to a month, 12 months to a year, and 360 days to a year). To zero in, the Jubilee Year must follow a Sabbatic Year, and 5775 is the Sabbatic Year. It divides by 7 equally. Therefore, I think Nisan 1, 5776 to Nisan 1, 5777 will be the actual Jubilee Year.
I think Christ will return Nisan 1, 5776 (Saturday, April 9, 2016). The Sabbath is fitting, because Jesus said he is Lord of the Sabbath.
Dan 12:11,12 says, "from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up (Mid Trib), there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
We are dealing with estimated time here; 1260 days are 42 months of 30 days each, or 3.5 years. The Jewish Calendar actually has both 29 and 30 day months. Some years even have a 13th month.
The 1290 days in Dan. 12, instead of 1260 (or a time, times, and half a time, 3.5 years) show that the last year of the Tribulation is a Leap Year with the 13th month, Adar II. The year 5776 is a Leap Year, so it can start the Jubilee Year that is announced on the previous Day of Atonement and runs from Nisan 1 to Nisan 1.
The 1335 days show that Daniel will stand in his own lot in Israel 75 days after the Second Advent. Saturday, Nisan 1, 5776 (April 9, 2016) plus 75 days will be Thursday, Sivan 17, 5776 (June 23, 2016). We are told this to show us that the Jubilee Year has arrived. Israel will be returned to her promised land. Agape
My reply to an email about the Jubilee Year
> > 1967 to 2017 (50 years) IS THE FINAL GENERATION (the 70th Jubilee year). It is 50 years that we add to 1967 and not 40 years.

70th JUBILEE YEAR
> > Again, when we subtract seven years for The Great Tribulation, we get 2017 - 7 = 2010 AD. (5770) in the hebrew calendar.
I think 1967 + 50 = 2017 is valid, not because it hooks to the known Jubilee of 28 AD, it doesn't, but because 1967 was the sign of Jesus' coming and the consummation of the Age (Mt. 24:3).
In figuring from 28 AD, the last known Jubilee year, we have to add Jubilee cycles, which are 49 yr cycles, then add the extra year for the Jubilee at the end. The 50th year is both the Jubilee and year 1 of the new cycle. This keeps the Sabbatic Years aligned correctly with the Jubilees. A Sabbatic Year has to precede a Jubilee Year. Agape
