DANIEL CHAPTER 12: 11-12 HAS ALREADY BEEN FULFILLED! It is not floating in time waiting to land some 2,000 years later!
11 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.
12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
God is not the author of confusion and if you have ever listened to those explaining Daniel according to Darby’s dispensation of times, you have definitely been confused on what to expect in the last days. Especially when they make them start at the end of 2,000 years and still have them floating waiting to land. I know because I spent many years doing just that with my Church and Pastors. I had so many questions and got few answers that satisfied my discernment. One day I sat at my kitchen table going through my memorized lines, you know the ones that go from Daniel to Revelations, and we are on the hunt to find two witnesses who lay in the street dead and rise up (no one ever thought about dry bones and the two sticks of Joseph in Ezekiel 36? That wasn’t what Darby was teaching. He was having us build a Temple so we can have it desolated, and look at what the Beast is and figure out who the antichrist was going to be and what the mark was and what was on the menu at the marriage supper of the Lamb.
Well, I was going through my spill, including Thessolonians and 2nd Corinthians where we are all changed in a twinkling of an eye and our little shoes are left behind, when almost every thing I was jumping around to got proven wrong by a 7th day Adventist Pastor and his church member. Well, when I found out it wasn’t so, I wanted the truth. For his ideas weren’t coming out correct either. So we both walked away with a lot to rethink. We did agree the Lord died for our sins and all the other things. It was that dang rapture and Beast stuff and it all was about Revelations. And a few other odd things like Temple stuff and a woman named Ellen. But it always pointed to last days. So, I went into prayer and got out my Bible and said…”Lord show me. I want the truth.” And he began showing me so many things…and a new phase of my journey began.
But, this is about the Book of Daniel and prophecy of the last days, and Daniel is filled with things that do apply in Revelations, but some of the prophecies do not. I discovered when you understand Daniel Chapter 9 it is a game changer. And when you read chapters 10,11, and 12, you see it all cross references in places like the new testament, old testament and the Books of Maccabees that were once in our King James Bibles and removed around the same time Darby’s dispensationalism took hold in the church. It is still in Catholic Bibles.
Maccabees is also a bone of contention among the Jewish people and I wondered why. Especially since it contains the most detailed accounts of the battles of Judah Maccabee and his brothers for the liberation of Judea from foreign domination. They include the earliest references to the story of Hanukkah and the rededication of the Temple, and the famous story of the mother Hanna and her seven sons. Yet, these two books are missing from the Hebrew Bible.
In searching to find out why, the reason that made the most sense was because of political rivalry during the late Second Temple Period between the Sadducees and the Pharisees. For when you look at the real history, it becomes obvious. What also helps to put it in perspective is reading what and how Jesus talked to these two groups and the Temple Priests, even the High Priest. He really had a lot to say of their wayward thinking and a couple of times even told them to their face that their Father was Satan.
When I think of the years wasted on memorizing lies, and searching for ways to make the lies fit so they make sense, all of that really disturbs me. But to know the joy of having the Holy Spirit teach you himself just like the Lord promised and the Pastor never told me, and as it says in Ezekiel 34 and Jeremiah 23, that is priceless.
So let’s look at Daniel Chapter 12, and glance over 10,11 to show how it moves directly through the missing years and right into the Birth of our Lord, Jesus the Christ. For chapters 9 thru 12 all related to the 70 weeks of years which are 490 years. Which is the number Jesus gave us as to the question, how many times must we forgive our brother.
Matthew 18:21-22 KJV
21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times?
22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
This appears to be a direct cross reference to the bill of divorcement to Israel and their forgiveness. For this is the exact number of years spoken in Daniel 9:24-25 in the 70 weeks of years or 490. To begin at the command to restore and to build Jerusalem to Messiah the Prince. It was the exact amount of years to bring about the NEW COVENANT where the Lord sacrificed his life and died once for all as the perfect offering in forgiveness of sins. Coincidence? No. That is divine! That was in reference to Daniel and the last week prophecy was being fulfilled, even as he taught them.
24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
Daniel 9, 10, 11 and 12 are prophesies that take place in a procession of time covering the decree to rebuild Jerusalem, unto the Messiah the Prince, even in troublous times. The coming 70 weeks of days commenced at the time when King Cyrus decreed to allow the Jews to return to Jerusalem and rebuild their city. Thus it began at that year.
The mystery of the 1290 days and the blessing to those who make it to the 1,335 days is made known. Those who come make it to the extra 45 days and receive a great blessing has been a perplexing scripture and one with many interpretations. So far most all stick this at the end of a floating seven year period that has yet to be fulfilled. None of these prophetic interpretations can account for the specific number of 45 days, nor where to have this happen.
Some number of years back the Lord showed me what this meant and I shared it eagerly and was told many things, and none of it was met with enthusiasm for what the Lord had showed me.That was okay, for I knew it was truth. Smile The truth sets you free. Those that refuse it must prove to me where they are right through God’s Holy Word, and I will gladly correct it. For I seek the truth.
The answer to the 1,335 Days …
In my post Propaganda War On God – The Marshall Report (diannemarshallreport.com) I covered Daniel 9 in depth to show how this was fulfilled. Now I am presenting the rest of the story. And what happened after the first 1,290 days of Jesus’s ministry. At his crucifixion he was cut off, thus ending his ministry and now the second half of the ministry to the Jews had begun. So we are at the first half of the week, 1,290 days. What transpired in the next 45 days will amaze you and perhaps not really surprise you, for it was so simple and right in front of you all the time.
Jesus died on the cross for our sins and he said, “It is finished.” He then descended into hell and tore down the gates and emptied it of its’ prisoners releasing the saints. As stated in Matthew 27:50-53 “50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. 51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, 53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.” (Darby and many pastors don’t talk about this, why?)
So Jesus was still busy completing his covenant. This was three days as he rose again on the third day. He then went about witnessing to people for forty days. We are now at 43 days. He then ascended to the Father and told the disciples to return and he would send them the Holy Spirit. It was a sabbath’s day journey back, which is two days. Together this is 45 days. 3+40+2=45! And the great blessing for those who made it to the 1,335th day! It was the great blessing to receive THE HOLY SPIRIT! THE COMPLETION OF THE NEW COVENANT!
They were now all filled with the Holy Spirit and their bodies had become the New Covenant Temple of the Lord! The Lord now dwelled within their hearts! Whatever they asked the Father in the name of Jesus, with faith as a grain of mustard seed, shall be given unto them. The 1,335 DAYS WAS THE MARKING OF THE DAY OF PENTACOST!
1The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: 3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: 4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. 6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day’s journey.
Together this is 45 days. 3+40+2=45! And these 45 days were filled with complete and awesome wonders. The New Covenant had been fulfilled and now our bodies have become the temple of the Lord not made with human hands! Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to reside in all who believe in him and we who believe shall have everlasting life and he shall dwell in us and we in him! We now are sealed and belong to the Father through Jesus Christ His Only Begotten Son. All who believe have the Super Power of the Holy Spirit! It is time now to pray and learn how to build our faith as a mustard seed and say to that mountain move and it shall move!
So now we will show you the fulfillment of Daniel 9 thru 12. You will see why it was time to establish the new covenant promised to Abraham!
Ezra 6:3–5 3In the first year of Cyrus the king the same Cyrus the king made a decree concerning the house of God at Jerusalem, Let the house be built, the place where they offered sacrifices, and let the foundations thereof be strongly laid; the height thereof threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof threescore cubits; 4 With three rows of great stones, and a row of new timber: and let the expenses be given out of the king’s house: 5 And also let the golden and silver vessels of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar took forth out of the temple which is at Jerusalem, and brought unto Babylon, be restored, and brought again unto the temple which is at Jerusalem, every one to his place, and place them in the house of God.
The first 69 weeks of years foretell the second temple period, beginning with the rebuilding of the City and the Temple; the coming of the abomination of desolation by King Antiochus Epiphanes in 168 B.C.E., when he invaded Jerusalem and outlawed Jewish rituals and forced Jews to worship Greek gods and the Jews’ beloved Temple was seized and dedicated to the worship of Zeus Olympius.
This time span fulfills the events to come during the second temple building, and the abomination of desolation during the invasion of King Antiochus Epiphanes who in 168 B.C.E., seized Jerusalem and outlawed Jewish rituals and forced Jews to worship Greek gods. Daniel 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. Read 1 and 2 Books of Maccabees: eng-kjv_2MA.pdf (ebible.org)
This time period contains the Jewish History of Hanukkah and the events that inspired this Jewish holiday that took place during this turbulent phase of Jewish history when the oil in the lamps in the Temple never ran out. These events and all the events that took place up to the time Jesus began his ministry are found in the Five Books of Maccabees.
The Books of Maccabee’s was removed from our King James Bible in 1881?
Was because it told the story of the years from the time of Daniel up to the birth of Jesus and those years explained a lot of what was prophesied in Daniel 9,10,11,12? Was it because it told of the fullfillment of many of the prophecies in Daniel and didn’t fit with the new dispensational dispensed theology taught by Darby? You know they chopped off the entire Maccabean War, the Lampstand burning with no oil, Alexander the Great, Cleopatra, and Ceasar? Was it because it told the back story about King Herod, the dedication to Caesar of Antonia Fortress, the Palace that housed the Temple Priest connected to the Temple by the colonade, within the walls? Was it because it rules out the last week gap of 2,000 years? Because it fulfills the prophecies they had to throw into Revelations in an effort to rearrange prophecy so they can have followers doing nothing but sucking on the milk for they will be raptured away in the nick of time? Or was it to have people chase lies and ignore the truth in the Word of God by rearranging times and places and making up your own interpretations, adding lots of opinionated bla, bla.
Talk about knocking chinks in the whole armor of God and stealing the Sword of the Lord right out of your sheath!
Other events in these books that took place in this time frame are the Maccabean Wars which are one of, if not the most, historic wars in Jewish history. During this time period we also see the fulfillment of Daniel 10 when he is told the vision of the Prince of Grecia to come and the story of Alexander the Great, and his empire divided among his four generals and how Judea battled the Greeks and Romans. This is told in the Books of Maccabees. It goes into the details of the war, the conquest under Greece and into the conflicts of Rome and the wars that place Israel under Roman rule along with the politics of that time period. There was a lot of corruption and chaos. But we go from the Book of Daniel, right to the birth of Jesus leaving out all the important history leading up to that day. Other than the confusion of building the second Temple. We never hear about a restoring of it or a third Temple being built now do we?
It is in Five Maccabees that we learn of the appointment of Herod to be King over Judah by julius Caesar as a favor to Mark Antony, and the restoring of the Temple by King Herod of which he dedicates the palace portion that housed the Temple priests to Mark Antony, naming it Antonio’s Fortress, which later becomes the new garrison for Roman Guard and quarters for the Palace of Pilate.
Above, King Herod in 37-4B.C. built a huge temple in Caesarea Maritima, dedicated to the “goddess Roma, the embodiment of Imperial Rome and to the god-Caesar Augustus, as part of a plan to show his indebtedness. Pictured above are the actual remains.
The Jewish historian Josephus described the temple in his recorded Antiquities of the Jews and from his writings, we can glean its grandeur. He stated, “From the outset, it should be remembered that Caesarea Maritima was predominantly a Gentile city—thus the “pagan” temple, but Herod also rebuilt the Temple to the God of Israel, and expanded its platform. These two building projects of Herod do indeed say something about his character and outlook on life.”
Above are the ruins of Herod‘s hilltop palace fortress in Herodium (named after himself) six miles from Jerusalem. Herod reigned for 36 years over Judea. This is where he is buried and where he also ordered the executions of one wife and three sons. Tells a bit more about this evil man that also decreed all children two and under be killed trying to outsmart God and slay his son, Jesus.
Matthew 2:16 16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.
This is all starting to sound very familiar.

At the end of this time period we leave the books of Maccabees and enter into the gospels. Where these books begin to tell us the rest of the fulfillment of prophecy. In Luke it tells us that the last of the Levitical Priestly line is Zacharias, who is well in age and has no heir, which sets the stage for the new Priestly line of the Heavenly Order of Melchizedek.
He is visited by the angel Gabriel and told he will have a son and he will have the Spirit of Elijah, and be born with the Holy Ghost and his name shall be called John. So we see in these verses that Elijah has been sent by God to be born to annoint the most Holy One, our Lord Jesus the Christ.
1 7And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
And even Jesus confirmed that John was indeed Elijah who had come. (There goes another Darby line shot and gone. They say Elijah hasn’t come yet and he’s gonna be one of the two witnesses when that floating 7 years lands.)
Matthew 11:14 Context
11Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. 13For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. 14And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come. 15He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. 16But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, 17And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.
This event follows up with the arrival of the Angel Gabriel to announce to Mary that she will birth the Messiah.
(Note all of this is timed to fullfill the sealed prophecy.)
Fast forward and baby Jesus is born and the wise men come to see the new Messiah and to offer him gifts and seek his whereabouts with King Herod. Herod is threatened by this news as he knows he was not in line to be a King over Judah. He orders all the children age two and younger to be killed and now the story is just beginning. As we read the books of Maccabees and see all the political struggles, and see the appointments by Caesars…we see a mess of division and struggles and the ugly politics of the day.
We fast forward to the beginning of the 70th week and the beginning of the new covenant ministry of Jesus. The Priests and Pharisees have been keeping track of the times in the records of the coming of the Messiah and believe he is due to appear any day now. They ask John, if he was the Messiah, John answers them no and the next day, Jesus comes to John to be baptised and John proclaims, “Behold the Lamb Of God.” John 1:29 (KJV) 29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
Details to the first years ministry of Jesus and Daniel Chapter 9 can be found in my earlier post: Propaganda War On God – The Marshall Report (diannemarshallreport.com)
Which brings us to Daniel Chapter 12 the fulfillment of the extra 45 days- 1,335.
12:11 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.
12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
