    What about the 1260 days, the 1290 or 1335 etc... What you need to ask yourself is, can you positively connect Jesus's words with any exact time period? Besides, Daniel is very clear about those days as to what begins them and ends them. Would Jesus be saying it would not happen that way, that in fact the events in Daniel are wrong? No... To say Jesus is saying a time period in Daniel would be cut short would be a major contradiction and paradox in scripture, and there are none.

    i messed up on my last comment you quoted. i hate the time limit on here.

    my reply in thought is including the days length of the tribulation that corrolate along the 2,300 days (not the part of the 2,300 days that are not tribulation in concept, only the tribulation days) so then that would make those days shortened however much, unless "those days" are already accounted for not being included in the lengths the scriptures explaine to us, only giving us the time lot after the fact

    It seems pretty simple to me, he was simply talking about the time in which the events he was just speaking of would be fulfilled.

    No one can connect his words to a specific day count...

    Our Lord comes as a thief only to the unwise, but knocks and enters as a guest to those watching.

    Rev 3:3 "Therefore, continue mindful of how you have received and how you heard, and go on keeping it, and repent. Certainly unless you wake up, I will come as a thief, and you will not know at all at what hour I will come upon you."

    Rev 3:20 "Look! I am standing at the door and knocking. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into his house and take the evening meal with him and he with me."

    "Into the light" Welcome to our forum, you are very welcome...

    With that said, I already know what your first post will be, and since I'm not doing anything I'm going to proactively reply to a thought you had on another site... ;)

    You said: "OK in the conversation on e-jw it's insisted by the admin that Jesus was speaking to Pharisees regarding the sign, and he uses Mt. 16:3 to support his opinion but the context reveals that they asked Jesus to give them sign from sky in order to tempt him. They didn't ask him about the seasons and signs of his coming but to prove to them that he was messiah. And he told them no sign will be given to them except the one of Jonah. And that's exactly what happened. I'm not really convinced with the explanations given since things are taken out of context."

    Keep in mind, Jesus wasn't going to give them a sign, so what sign was he talking about when he said they hadn't recognized the "signs" before them?

    Mth 16:3 "You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but the signs of the times you cannot interpret."

    Jesus was talking about the fulfillment of prophecy he was accomplishing. From his arrival, to actions, to the actual dates they should have been looking for. Keep in mind, the 70 year prophecy of Dan 9 led directly to the year Jesus would be baptized, and besides even that, King Herod was said to have calculated by the books when our Lord would be arriving.

    So in essence Jesus was ridiculing the elders for not recognizing the "signs" that were being fulfilled, and he was talking about prophecy. Specifically the prophecies, times and seasons in their day.

    As well, if you study the original Hebrew word "moadim" you will see it means "An appointed time, a festival."

    All love...
