DANIEL 12:11-12

Daniel 12:11-12 (KJV)
And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, 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.

4.1 From the Time That the Daily is Taken Away
1. From the time that paganism is taken away and the conversion of Europe to Christianity in 508 A.D. after the conversion of Clovis, king of the Franks.
And the abomination of desolation set up

2. Margin TO set up the abomination of desolation. This marginal reading reveals the idea that the daily was taken away in order that the Abomination of Desolation could be set up. Without the removing of the ‘daily’ there would never have been an Abomination of Desolation. Thus the time being looked at here is not the setting up of the Abomination of Desolation but the taking away of the daily which was in 508 A.D.

4.2 Shall Be 1290 Days
1. 1290 years from 508 A.D. takes us to 1798 A.D. and the fall of the temporal power of the papacy.
1335 days

2. From 508 A.D. an addition of 1335 years takes us to 1843-44 A.D.

4.3 Blessed Is He That Waiteth
1. A blessing is pronounced upon those who not only come to the 1798 date, but which are able to also come to the second date at the end of the 1335 days.

2. Why is this? Because in 1798 the papacy received the deadly wound, which was tremendous in itself, but in 1843-44 the messages of the three angels began to be preached to the world about the second coming of Christ. At this time the church was in the period of Philadelphia and the experience was one of tremendous blessing to all who later recalled going through it.
