Forty Two Months is an eye-opener, and it proves the Bible is astonishing. For at least the last 60-years, Prophecy teaching has emphasized the Great Tribulation that lasts for 7-years. Jeremiah 30:7, Daniel 9:24-27, Daniel 12:7, Daniel 12:11-13 are some. Revelation 11:3, Revelation 13:5, Numbers 14:34 and Ezekiel 4:6 seem to be the others. Over the last two year, I have been watching Turkey nearly kicking out America and our Military presence. That will be one of the main things to watch for, and it’s the foundation for Ezekiel 38 – 39’s fulfillment.
The above-mentioned passages are all found at the end of this article.
I’m concluding The Time of Jacob’s Trouble and the Covenant With Many For One Week are two different Seven-Year Periods. It looks to me like Prophecy Teachers look at these Prophecies as the same event?
I can demonstrate a good case for Nazi Germany being the First Beast of Revelation 13. I also believe Nazi Germany caused the Time Of Jacob’s trouble.
On 9 and 10 November 1938 the Germans started burning the Synagogues. This is called ‘Broken Glass’ in English. On 20 November 1945 the Nuremberg Trials began. That was 7-Solar Years and 12-days. The Holocaust was the Time of Jacob’s Trouble.
The Prince that will confirm a 7-year Covenant with many brings about 7-years of peace for most of the MANY. When Turkey kicks America and our military presence out, Turkey turns to Russia. Then Russia, Turkey, Iran and Libya will be ready to fulfill Ezekiel 38 and 39.
Russia and Turkey will move against Israel. It looks to me like, after the war is over, the Prince can bring about a 7-year Peace Treaty. Broken Glass and this Peace Treaty are two different issues.

The Prince breaks the Covenant with a portion of the many. This is when he shuts the Jewish Third Temple down. After the War of Ezekiel 38-39 ends, Israel may look like Germany after World War II? I also think the Dome of the Rock will have been (completely) destroyed. This is what makes the majority (The Muslim World mad) of the MANY mad. The Prince gives the Jews the right to build their Third Temple, over the ruins of Herod’s Temple foundation and the Dome of the Rock’s ruins.
If the Third Temple is like the first three temples, yes, the first three temples, it will also become the area slaughterhouse. It seems reasonable to me to think the Sacrifices will be instituted for worship and to feed the people.
It looks to me like the Jews, Muslim and Catholics in Charge will accept this Prince who makes the 7-year Covenant as the Messiah and Thirteenth Imam. The Muslim World is ready to destroy everything by three and a half years. This Prince has to shut the Third Temple down, and I think peace continues for the rest of the 7-year Covenant.
We have to remember that after the war of Ezekiel 38 – 39 the Jews take 7-months to clean the nation of all the dead bodies. But the fuel from the destroyed military equipment gives Israel 7-years worth of energy. A Seven-Year Period of peace for the nation and bad times for the Orthodox Jews that had their Temple taken.
1,260-Days And Time, Times And Half
Because of the passages I listed, I have to bring up how the Prophecy Teachers may have serious problems with their teachings because they are using the wrong calendar systems.
From what I can tell, they are all using the Babylonian base year of 360-days. 360-days X 3.5 years = 1,260. John, in Revelation 11:3 told us the Two Witnesses will have a ministry that lasts for 1,260-days. It looks like John used the Babylonian 360-day base year for this Prophecy.
When John, in Revelation 13:5 said Forty Two Months he was referring to the Lunar Months. Forty Two Months (lunar) X 29.530588 Days = 1,240.284696 days.
The 9,000-year calendar system embedded in Noah’s Flood has a Base Year of a 364-day year. 364 days X 3.5 = 1,274 Days and this could possibly satisfy the phrase ‘Time, Times and Half’. I have not found historical events that match this yet, but I am still looking.
The next calendar to consider is the Solar Year of 365.242199 days. 365.242199 days X 3.5 years = 1,278.3476965 Days. This can also be a possible use for ‘Time, Times and Half’.
The 1,290 and 1,335-Day periods don’t seem to work out to calendar systems. That means John and Daniel gave us exact days for Prophetic/Historical events to be fulfilled.
Please take a look at my article Twelve Twelve Twelve Twelve Twelve. I have laid out how Hitler fulfilled the 40 and 2 months of Revelation 13:5.
The following are the passages I used for this article, and I think I covered most of them.
Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! for that day is great so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
1,335-Days and The Time Of Jacob’s Trouble
Daniel 7:24 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.
26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Daniel 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
Forty Two Months And Ezekiel 38 and 39
Daniel 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. 13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
Revelation 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty two months.
Revelation 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
Numbers 14:34 After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.
Ezekiel 4:6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year.
