 (and the Prophetic Calendar)

A prophetic year is 360 days


"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; 
and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years,"
(Genesis 1:14).


The fact that the prophets understood a year as 360 days is well attested. God created the sun to mark the seasons and years. He made the moon to mark the days. There are 354.37 days in a lunar year (of 12 moons/months), and 365.24 days in a solar year; together they average 360 days.

365.24 (solar) + 354.37 (lunar) = 719.61 2 = 359.8 days. 
(I.e., approx. 360 of prophetic.)



  1. "The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, "It will be for a time, times and half a time.* When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed," (Daniel 12:7).   

The above asterisk * is found in the New International Version of the Bible where it reads in its margin: "Or a year, two years and half a year." I.e., 3- years. This key phrase, "time, times and half a time," is also found in Daniel 7:25, and Revelation 12:14, and further alluded to in Daniel  4:16; 5:25; 9:27.

The NIV's interpretation of "time, times and half a time" as '3- years' is obviously correct since this phrase is paralleled with the number "1290 days," found only four verses later in the same chapter, (1290 days equals 3- years):




==> 3.5 years




= 1260

Or, + 30 days = 390 (if we here add the leap month)

Or, + 30 days = 750 (if we here add the leap month)

Or, + 30 days = 210 (if we here add the leap month)

= 1290 
(or 1260 +30 days)


Therefore, 1290 days is simply 1260 days with an intercalary month added. An intercalary month (i.e., a leap month of 30 days) is added for the same reason that leap days are added to our solar calendar---to keep up to the exact solar orbit of 365.2422 days in a (solar) year. Notice that a leap month may occur on any one of the above three "time" slots, depending upon where it happens to fall during the on-going cycles of the prophetic calendar system. (For more, see 360 calendar "How the Leap Months are Regulated.")

  1. "They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1260 days, clothed in sackcloth," (Revelation 11:2b,3).

This verse proves that 1260 days is synonymous with "42 months;" in that 30-days-in-a-month, times 42-months, equals 1260 days. (For more, see Supplementary Three: "3- Years as Viewed in the Book of Revelation.")

What is more, notice the agreement of the "1260" with the phrase "a time, and times, and half a time" (Revelation 12:6 &14), the same way in which the 1290 was in Daniel 12:7 & 11. 

 "The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1260 days...And there were given to the woman the two wings of the great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness unto her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent."  (Revelation 12:6, 14).



  1. "And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated. And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat," (Genesis 8:3,4).

We are told that the Flood covered the land from the 17th of the 2nd month to the 17th of the 7th month. This would amount to about 147 days of the lunar calendar. Instead however, this 5-month period is said to total150 days. This implies that the median 30-day-month of the prophetic year is here being used, (i.e., 30 x 5 = 150 days).


  1. Compare the following two verses (from the book of Esther):



The following expressions for "3- years" are all variations of that original phrase found in Daniel 9:27 "the dividing of seven days/years." The literal term "3- years" is found in Luke 4:25, James 5:17; compare with Revelation 11:3-6. The fact that the this 3- year period is expressed in at least 6 different ways is clear proof of it's importance, and hence worthy of study.

"3- Years" as Viewed in the Book of Revelation

Expression used  
for "3- years"

Book of Revelation


In general, what might this imply?

42 months

11:2 and 13:5

Holy City trampled and saints conquered

Defeat for 42 x 2 months 
= 7 years

1260 days

11:3 and 12:6

Saints overcome, and are preserved

Victory for 1260 x 2 days 
= 7 years

"Time, times, and half a time"



But there are two references in Daniel, both negative

Preservation for 3.5 years. 

But twice negative in Daniel 
= 7 years of tribulation too

Three-and-one-half DAYS

11:9 and 11:11

Death and Resurrection

A day is as a year; Daniel's 70th "week" divided as in Daniel 9:27. Hence, 7 days and/or years
