Daniel 12:12
Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

From the time Jesus was announced as the Lamb of God and began preaching until the Holy Spirit was released at Pentecost was exactly 1335 days inclusive.
Time Has An End

Blessed  is  he  that  waiteth,  and  cometh  to  the  thousand  three
hundred and five and thirty days.
Because this verse is written in a book of the Bible that has much to say about end
time events, for years I have tried to relate this verse and its reference to the 1,335
days  to  the  timing  of  the  end. * However,  no  matter  how  I  tried,  I  was
unsuccessful in relating it in any meaningful way with the end of time. Truth concerning
this verse began to dawn when I started to wonder if this verse related to the first
coming of Christ. Could it be the word “he” in this verse is a reference to Jesus Himself?
He would be the Blessed One. He would be the One who must wait to come. Why 
must  Christ  wait  to  come?  Could  He  not  have  come whenever  He  decided  to 
come? Why must Christ wait to come? Could He not have come whenever He decided 
to  come?  The  answer  is  No!  As  we  have  learned,  God  has  a  very carefully
planned timetable for all of history. This timetable is tied very securely to God’s
salvation plan. The coming of Christ is the greatest event in this salvation plan, but His
coming had to fit precisely into this timetable. Therefore, Jesus had to wait for the exact
time when this timetable called for Him to come. That is why Galatians 4:4-5, which we
looked at earlier, indicates that Jesus came in the “fullness of time”. That is why we
read in Isaiah 30:18: And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto
you,  and  therefore  will  he  be  exalted,  that  he  may  have  mercy upon  you:  for 
the  LORD  is a  God  of  judgment:  blessed  are all they that wait for him. What then
is the period of 1,335 days for which He must wait to come? * Examining the 1,335
days in the light of what we know concerning the timetable of Christ’s first coming, it is
not difficult to see the possibility that the 1,335 days identifies in some way with His
coming to be crucified. When  we  study  Daniel  9:27  (see The  Seventy  Weeks  of 
Daniel  9, available free of charge from Family Radio, also available on this website),
we learn that the time from the baptism  of  Jesus  to  the  cross  was  approximately 
three  and  a  half  years.  We learned that it was at Jesus’ baptism that He officially
began His work as the Messiah and that sacrifice and offering ceased in the middle of a
week of seven years. We learned that the only time sacrifices ended was at the cross
when Jesus sacrificed Himself for our sins. If the middle of the week meant precisely
three and a half years, then that equals 1,278 days (3˝ x 365.2422 days). But 1,278
days is  short  of  1,335  days.  Could  it  be  that  the  middle  of  the  week  was  an
approximation? But then the Bible would have said “about the middle of the week.” Then
I remembered that Jesus had one more task to do that distinctly related to the
atonement. It was a task that was an absolutely important part of God’s salvation plan.
That task was the sending of the Holy Spirit. It was God’s plan that the Holy Spirit, who
is God Himself, must begin His activity of applying the Word of God, the Bible, to the
lives of those whom God planned to save. Unless this was done, no one could become
saved. Jesus spoke of this, indicating that He Himself would take care of this matter as
soon as He returned to heaven. We read in John 16:7-8: Nevertheless I tell you the truth;
It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come
unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will  reprove 
the  world  of  sin,  and  of  righteousness,  and  of judgment. The Holy Spirit was
poured out at Pentecost in A.D. 33. We read about this in Acts Chapter 2, wherein God
discloses that in that day, about 3,000 were saved. Pentecost was fifty days after the
cross. Fifty days added to an exact three and one half years (1,278 days) gives us a
span of time equal to 1,328 days. This is only seven days less than 1,335 days. Daniel
9:27, which speaks of the Messiah being cut off, does not appear to be insisting on an
exact three and a half years (1,328 days). It would appear that given the fact that 1,328
days is so close to 1,335 days, we have discovered what God had in mind with the
1,335 days. However, by studying the Bible more carefully, we will find the three and
one half years are a very exact time. If  we  start  with  the  1,335  days  prophesied  in 
Daniel  12:12,  we  can reconstruct the timing of events that preceded Pentecost. The
last fifty days of the 1,335 days was the period from the Saturday immediately  after the
crucifixion to Pentecost. Six days earlier than this was the Sunday we call Palm
Sunday. On this day, the time of the atonement was officially announced as having
come. Jesus came into Jerusalem and was proclaimed a King (John 12:1, 12-15). This
precipitated all of the required events that brought Christ to the cross a few days later. 
Such  actions  as  the  evidences  of  the  hatred  of  the  Pharisees  and  the betrayal
by Judas brought to reality Christ’s crucifixion. Therefore, the Sunday we call Palm
Sunday and the crucifixion are inseparably connected. Moreover, we read in Exodus
12:3 that on the tenth day of Nisan, the Passover lamb was to be selected. It was to be
killed on Nisan 14 (Exodus 12:6). In A.D. 33, when Jesus became the Passover Lamb,
the tenth day of Nisan began at sundown on Sunday and continued until sundown on
Monday. Thus, all of that Sunday, which we call Palm Sunday, until sundown, was
actually the ninth day of Nisan. In Mark 11:9-11, God ties the ninth day to the tenth day
by indicating that Christ’s entry into Jerusalem and the events that were a part of that
day’s activity continued into the evening hours. Those verses record: And they that went
before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna;  Blessed  is  he  that  cometh  in 
the  name  of  the  Lord: Blessed  be  the  kingdom  of  our  father  David,  that  cometh in 
the name  of  the  Lord:  Hosanna  in  the  highest.  And  Jesus  entered into  Jerusalem, 
and  into  the  temple:  and  when  he  had  looked round about upon all things, and now
the eventide was come, he went  out  unto  Bethany  with  the  twelve. The  phrase 
“eventide  was  come” shows  that  the  events  of  that  historic  day continued until the
evening hours. Therefore, God is tying together the selection of the Passover lamb
(Exodus 12:3) to the selection of Jesus, the ultimate Passover Lamb. In Exodus 12:3,
God commanded: Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day  of 
this  month  they  shall  take  to  them  every  man  a  lamb, according  to  the  house  of 
their  fathers,  a  lamb  for  an  house. When Jesus entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, it
was equivalent to a great worldwide announcement that the Passover Lamb now had been
selected, and on  the  fourteenth  day  of  Nisan,  He  was  to  be  killed.  The  fourteenth 
day of Nisan began on Thursday evening, the very time Jesus was in the Garden of
Gethsemane already beginning to endure the awful wrath of God for the sins of all His true
people. His punishment by God would continue all through Friday until shortly before
sundown on Friday when Jesus declared, “It is finished” (John 19:30). Thus,  the  pattern of 
the  punishment  of  Christ,  the  ultimate  Passover Lamb,  was  dramatically  set  forth 
already  in  Exodus  Chapter  12  where  God details the selection of the Passover lamb.
In addition, the ninth day of Nisan in A.D. 33 was exactly, to the day, three  and  a  half 
years  after  September  25  in  A.D.  29  when  Jesus  was  announced as the Lamb of
God. Curiously, this in turn precisely agrees with the prophecy of Daniel 9:27 wherein God
indicated that “in the midst of the week [seven] He  shall  cause  the  sacrifice  and  the 
oblation  to  cease.” If we now recognize that Palm Sunday occurred exactly three and a
half years after Jesus was baptized, the timetable is as follows:

1. Jesus’ baptism to Palm Sunday - 3˝ years / 1,278 days
2. Palm Sunday to cross - 5  days
3. Cross to Saturday in tomb - 1  day
4. Saturday immediately after crucifixion to Pentecost -
    50  days / 1,334 days or 1,335 days, inclusive

When  we  include  both  the  day  of  Christ’s  baptism  and  the  day  of Pentecost, we
end up with precisely 1,335 days. This 1,335 days is the exact number prophesied in
Daniel 12:12. To the very day, this prophecy was fulfilled. When we examine the 1,335
days, we can pinpoint that period on the calendar. The end of it is on Pentecost in A.D. 33.
In an examination of the Jewish calendar for A.D. 33, we find that Pentecost was May 21.
We know that this is an accurate date because of the great amount of Biblical evidence
that points to A.D. 33 as the year of the cross. When we examine the Jewish calendar for
A.D. 33, we find that the timing of the Passover of A.D. 33 agrees perfectly with the Biblical
information that identifies with the timing of the Passover. Therefore, we can be quite certain
that Pentecost occurred on May 21, A.D. 33. But what date in A.D. 29 was exactly 1,335
days earlier than this? It would be interesting to know if Jesus was baptized on any kind of
special day insofar as new moons or other feast days are concerned. According to
astronomical calculation, we can discover that in A.D. 29, when Jesus was baptized, the
date of His baptism was September 25. The  computation  of  the  1,335  days  of  Jesus’ 
ministry  works  out  as follows:

Days in Calendar / Number of Days Toward 1,335 Days
       Three years: 9/25/29 through 9/24/32
       (3 x 365.2422) = 1,095.7266 - 1,096 days

       Sept. 25-Sept. 30 inclusive (A.D. 32) - 6 days

       October 31 (A.D. 32) - 31 days

       November 30 (A.D. 32) - 30 days

       December 31 (A.D. 32) - 31 days

       January 31 (A.D. 33) - 31 days

       February 28 (A.D. 33) -  28 days

       March 31 (A.D. 33) - 31 days

       April 30 (A.D. 33) - 30 days

       May 1-May 21 inclusive (A.D. 33) - 21 days
1,335 days

Please note that six days are included for September. This is because the day of the
baptism of Jesus, which was September 25, was also a day identified with Jesus’ work on
earth, which began with His baptism. Also, the 21st day of May  (A.D.  33)  is  included 
because  that  was  the  date  when  Jesus  sent  the Comforter who is the Holy Spirit.
Therefore, the period of time from September 25, A.D. 29 through May 21, A.D. 33,
inclusive, equals 1,335 days. The  Announcement  of  the  Jubilee Interestingly, September 
25,  A.D.  29,  is  a  very  special  date.  This  is because September 25 is Tishri 1, and
Tishri 1 is the date of the first day of the seventh month. Concerning this day, we read in
Leviticus 23:23-25: And  the  LORD  spake  unto  Moses,  saying,  Speak unto the children 
of  Israel,  saying,  In  the  seventh  month,  in  the  first  day of the month, shall ye have a
sabbath, a memorial of a Jubilee, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work therein:
but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. We can be absolutely certain that
it was on this special day of the first day  of  the  seventh  month  in  A.D.  29  that  Jesus 
was  baptized.  We  can  be absolutely  certain  because  God  had  prophesied  hundreds 
of  years  earlier  in Daniel 12:12 that, “Blessed is he [the Messiah] that waiteth, and cometh
to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.” How precisely the Bible gives
information! The Hebrew word in Daniel 12:12 that is translated “cometh” in the King James
Bible is used very interestingly in another place. The word “cometh” used in Daniel 12:12 is
the Hebrew word “naga.” The same word “naga” is translated “touch” more than ninety times
in phrases such as “the soul that shall touch any  unclean  thing” (Leviticus  7:21), and “an 
hand  touched  me” (Daniel 10:10). But this same word “naga” is also translated “come” in a
few places. One of these places is extremely interesting because it is used in connection
with the observance of feast days. This citation is Ezra 3:1, where we read: And when the
seventh month was come, and the children of Israel were  in  the  cities,  the  people 
gathered  themselves  together  as one man to  Jerusalem. The word “come” is the Hebrew
“naga” even as it is in Daniel 12:12. In Ezra 3:6, God adds the words: From the first day of
the seventh month began they to offer burnt offerings unto the LORD. But the foundation of
the temple of the LORD was not yet laid. These verses historically relate the experiences of
Israel in Ezra’s day. Spiritually, they must point to Jesus Who laid the foundation of the
spiritual temple — the whole body of true believers — by going to the cross. The historical
event recorded in Ezra Chapter 3 is, therefore, a portrait pointing to the baptism and
announcement of Jesus as the Lamb that would take away the sins of the world. Both in
Ezra Chapter 3 and in Daniel 12:12, God is focusing on Tishri 1 which is the first day of the
seventh month. Three and one half years after Jesus was announced as the Lamb of God,
the foundation of the temple would be laid by Jesus experiencing God’s wrath. Since the
word “come” used in both Ezra Chapter 3 and Daniel 12:12 ordinarily signifies “touch,” we
can know that Daniel 12:12 is teaching that Christ as the Blessed One had to wait for the
fullness of God’s timetable before He could come to, or be in touch with, the 1,335 days,
which was the period of time when Jesus did all of His work as the Savior. It began on the
feast of Tishri 1 in A.D. 29 and ended 1,335 days later on May 21, A.D. 33 when the Holy
Spirit was given at  Pentecost. How beautiful and  harmonious  is  the  Word  of  God!  How
trustworthy are all the prophecies and numbers of the Bible! As we learned earlier, the Bible
speaks of two Jubilee periods. The first began with the birth of Jesus in the Jubilee Year 7
B.C. Later, we will learn that the second Jubilee period began in A.D. 1994, which was also
a Jubilee Year. Later in our study, we will examine the second Jubilee period very carefully.
However, the baptism of Jesus in A.D. 29 was intimately identified with the first Jubilee. At
the time Jesus was born, the Bible especially calls attention to  two  important  events  that 
identify  with  the  nature  of  the  Jubilee,  i.e.,  the proclamation of liberty to the world. The
first is the Heavenly host that appeared to the shepherds, announcing the birth of Christ
(Luke 2:9-14). The second is the activity of the shepherds as they told the world all that they
had seen and heard (Luke 2:17, 20). We have learned that in all likelihood, Jesus was born
on the Day of Atonement in the year 7 B.C., a Jubilee Year. Remember we learned also that
the Day of Atonement is identified with the Jubilee. Now, we have come to the first day of
the seventh month in A.D. 29. As we have learned, this feast day was also identified with the
Jubilee. Thus, we are not surprised that on that day in A.D. 29, two great announcements
were made that, by means of the Bible, have been published all over the world. The first was
the announcement by John the Baptist, “Behold the lamb of God which taketh away the sin
of the world” (John 1:29). The second was the announcement from Heaven recorded in Mark
And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was
baptized of John in Jordan. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens
opened, and the Spirit  like  a  dove  descending  upon  him:  and  there  came  a  voice
from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. In both John
1:29 and in Mark 1:9-11 we see the reason why Jesus was baptized and announced on the
Holy Day of the First Day of the Seventh Month. It was the day that we received an
enormous reminder that the Jubilee Year has come.

How precisely God has knit together the unfolding of His Gospel plan!
* We all know that the Lord had used Harold Camping to further His plan in a fantastical way. He allowed him to understand knowledge of the Bible that was never understood before. But the Lord has a time for everything within His plan. We were meant to know only certain things at certain times. Harold Camping was correct in his deduction that the 1,335 Days did indeed fit within these End Times. The 1,335 Days represent God's 4-part salvation plan which Ends in the year 2025 at the Rapture.
* As per most scripture, there is a physical meaning and a symbolic or spiritual meaning. The physical meaning is that from the time Jesus was declared the Lamb of God and began His 3 1/2 year ministry until the Feast of Pentecost when the Church Age began were 1,335 Days inclusive. The symbolic or spiritual meaning begins where the actual 1,335 Days end at the Feast of Pentecost when the Church Age began until the final Feast of Tabernacles within Heaven after the Rapture in 2025.These symbolic or spiritual 1,335 Days represent God's 4-part salvation plan + the Feast.
