Meanings of the Number 1260 in Revelation

4/06

“And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” (Revelation 11:3)

The two witnesses in chapter 11 of Revelation represent all saints of the world who have testified for the Lord during the Millennial Jubilee.

The phrase “clothed in sackcloth” points to the sign of repentance and request for mercy from God. Was it not because the citizens of Nineveh “covered themselves with sackcloth and sat on the ashes” after they heard Jonah’s message, that they received mercy from God who indeed spared the whole city from being destroyed?

As for the number 1260 in “twelve hundred and sixty days” we can see the following result after applying to it one of the dividing principles in Theomatics:

1260 –> 1...

Meanings of 1290 and 1335 Days in Book of Daniel Chapter 12

2/28

“From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1290 days. How blessed is he who keeps waiting and attains to the 1335 days!” (Daniel 12:11-12)

Here we see two numbers: 1290 and 1335.

Utilizing one of the dividing principles in Theomatics, we have:

1290 –> 1 + 2 + 9 + 0 = 12
1335 –> 1 + 3 + 3 + 5 = 12

Thus we see that, for numbers 1290 and 1335 the results after being divided up and then summed together are the same, both are 12. Number 12 is another number representing power and perfection. No matter whether our goal is to be cleansed of “the abomination” or to become a “blessed” person, we have to be ushered into a perfection and God is able to usher us in.

To investigate further, we will see that the numb...

How are seven churches in Revelation divided into two groups?

3/03

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will…” (Revelation 2:7, 11, 17)

“He who overcomes will… He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (Revelation 2:26-29, 3:5-6, 12-13, 21-22)

Among all seven churches in Revelation chapters 2 and 3, every one of them has a promise from God in the end for those who have overcome.

However, these promises are patterned together differently among two groups of churches.

For churches of Ephesus, Smyrna and Pergamum, the pattern is this: the phrase “what the Spirit says to the churches” goes the first; the promises for those who have overcome are made the last.

For churches of Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea, however, the patten is completely reve...

Final judgement mentioned both in Daniel and Revelation

2/27

“… and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the book, will be rescued. Many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake, these to everlasting life, but the others to disgrace and everlasting contempt.” (Daniel 12:1b-2)

This passage corresponds to the following passage in Revelation 20:

“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds...

What does the red horse in Revelation 6 stand for?

3/29

And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him. (Revelation 6:4)

At the first glance, this verse seems to be associated with earthly wars. In reality it is not so.

Please look at what Jesus said:

“Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” (Matthew 10:34)

If you read the above two verses together, you will know that what the person on the red horse is going through is not a war between nations on the earth; rather it is an inner and personal battle between the old and new lives.

If a person is determined to follow Jesus, repent and have his or her old life replaced with a new one that is pleasing...

What does the white horse in Revelation 6 stand for?

3/28

I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. (Revelation 6:2)

As the first seal is broken, he who sits on a white horse symbolizes all followers of Christ throughout the ages who have already conquered.

The “bow” in his hand – its Greek root derives from a verb which means “to produce, to labor.” In other words, this person who rides on a white horse, like a pregnant woman going through labor pains before delivery, is preparing to receive a new life from God.

The phrase “he went out conquering and to conquer” refers to the saints who were willing to follow Christ in conquering together with the Lord during the Millennial Jubilee...

Why does the Lord so detest the deeds of those “neither cold nor hot”?

3/23 (What Is the Lukewarm Symptom?)

“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.” (Revelation 3:15-16)

Why does the Lord so detest the deeds of those “neither cold nor hot”, to a point that He wants to spit them out of His mouth?

We all know that when water is heated to its boiling point, vapor like someone’s “breath” is seen ascending up. Similarly when water is cooled to a point of becoming ice, white smoke like “breath” is also seen coming from the ice.

A man lives by the air he breathes. The Bible often calls this breath “spirit.”

Jesus goes right to the heart of the matter by saying: “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits...
