Do you want to know something that's amazing throughout the Bible?
prophecy as to
length of time
given in God's Word concerning Satan and the children of the night,
is given in lunar terminology.
prophecy as to length of time
given concerning God's children, the children of light,
is given in solar terminology.
But the court which is without the temple leave out,
and measure it not;
for it is given unto the Gentiles:
and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
here we see that the treading under foot of the holy city, Jerusalem,
is 42 months, moons.
in the next verse we see that God's two witnesses prophesy 1260
which are determined by the revolution of the sun, i.e. solar.
And I will give power unto my two witnesses,
and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days,
clothed in sackcloth.
you might think that the time periods are exactly the same,
because 1260 / 30 = 42.
But actually they are not.
A lunar month is 29.53 days and falls short of a solar month which is 30 days.
So the two witnesses actually have more time, don't they?
God's children are always one step ahead of the serpent.
Lunar time measuring 'evil'
Solar time measuring 'good'
is not only true here in Rev. 11,
it applies to every time prophecy in the bible!
