Yesterday at 09:56 PM The 1,290 days of Daniel 12:11 [by godrulez]
In Daniel 7, we learn after the one coming on the clouds like the son of man during the 4th beast, there is the last beast who is said to have subdued 3 horns and a little horn comes up and has a time, two times and half a time but then will be annihilated and forever destroyed.

This time period is also given to Daniel in chapter 12:7 to the end of all the things Daniel has seen in chapter 11. Daniel is told in Dan 12:11 another time period of 1,290 days followed by 45 more days to 1,335 days.

This time period is referring to Daniel 11:33 not the period of the end.

Jesus refers to this time period as something his hearers should be looking for (not Antiochus)!

Matthew 24: 15-20
15 "Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),
16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains;
17 let him who is on the housetop not go down to get the things out that are in his house;
18 and let him who is in the field not turn back to get his cloak.
19 "But woe to those who are with child and to those who nurse babes in those days!
20 "But pray that your flight may not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath;

Also the same language in Luke’s gospel:

Luke 21:20-22
20 "But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then recognize that her desolation is at hand.
21 "Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are in the midst of the city depart, and let not those who are in the country enter the city;
22 because these are days of vengeance, in order that all things which are written may be fulfilled.

So, this is before Jesus goes to the cross he begins saying these things. The abomination that causes desolation is referring to the temple being desolate:

Matthew 23: 38 "Behold, your house is being left to you desolate!

The 1,290 days refers to the ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus (he who became sin for us --- an abomination to God) is what made the temple desolate.

There are 49 days from Passover to Pentecost. If you subtract the 3 days in the tomb and add 46 days to 1,290 you get 1,336 days. However they were in the upper room a day before (on day 1,335). Jesus ascended on day 1,330 (1,290 + 40 days). In Acts 2:1 the Greek says Pentecost was approaching (as the only other time you see this form is in Luke’s gospel (same author) when he says Jesus’ day was approaching (Luke 9:51).

They would have been in temple had it been the day of Pentecost. They were all in the upper room when the Holy Spirit descended in tongues of fire.

Daniel 12:12 "How blessed is he who keeps waiting and attains to the 1,335 days!

Fri May 14, 2021 10:19 PM Ishmael descendants [by Tom]
I have a question that up until now I have never even thought to question.

Over the years, whenever the subject of Ishmael comes up, I have heard many sermons that trace the lineage of Ishmael to Arabs and particularly to Muslims.
However, for the first time I can remember someone has challenged that notion, saying Hagar and Ishmael worshipped the true God, not some other god.

I did a quick search and that search seems to confirm what I was always told.
However, I thought I would check with the Highway to see if I could find any more information, before i dismiss the topic.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thu May 13, 2021 10:49 PM Anyone famailar with the non-denominational Church of Christ [by John_C]
A friend is trying to fill me out on my Christian beliefs. All I know from him is that he uses David Padfield's study notes, and Padfield is a pastor of the non-denominational Church of Christ in Zion, Il. My friend goes to a non-denominational Church of Christ.

When I went to the below site, I can find no statement of faith, just articles on what is wrong with certain things along with a few debates. I would just like to find out their beliefs and where my friend is coming from. Here is the website.

Let me tell you, my tongue is getting very sore from biting it.

More and more, I am finding that I need to walk out of rooms, on the subject of vaccines, masks, racism, homosexuality, etc...

I am actually not afraid to speak my mind, but many times I am finding out it is better to remain silent in many family situations where to open my mouth will cause fights and division.

I am at present, sitting on my back deck after doing just that.
My niece, who is not a believer but respects us, because of how we live, is visiting.
She was going off on people that have not been vaccinated that can be vaccinated. Then she started talking about her mother in law, whose husband (her son) has just finished fixing up her basement sweet to rent. Apparently she had some renters lined up, but that fell through when she found out they were lesbians. My niece was rolling her eyes as she said this and added, "I am going to assume that she is racist too."

Now there is no love lost between her mother- in law and me; we have our issues. However, as you can well imagine, I had to leave the room lest I caused a a family squabble. My wife also, did not comment and let our niece's comments slide.

I was recently advised by a pastor friend, that I should not remain quiet when such things are brought up. However, my experience tells me that sometimes it is better to say nothing with some people.

End of rant.

Fri May 07, 2021 3:39 PM Daniel 8:14 2,300 evenings and mornings [by godrulez]
I prayed last night (half the night) about Daniel 8 and the 2,300 evenings and mornings.

Then, it hit me. Here is my explanation.

That is, in Daniel 8:14 the 2,300 evenings and mornings is tied to the creation story as that language just stands out like a sore thumb (evenings and mornings).

So I now believe this is referring to the days from creation to the fall of man. It also there talks about the seed of woman crushing the serpent’s head—the little horn of Daniel (which comes out in Jesus’ day from the 4th beast the Roman Empire).

Daniel 8:10 it talks also about the stars being cast down from heaven which is also a theme in Revelation chapter 12 (Rev 12:4).

This chapter (ch 12 of Revelation) is also loaded with images of the seed of woman and the protection of believers from the serpent (the little horn) for a time, times and half a time. We see this in Daniel 7 and Daniel 12.
