It is now well understood by biblical scholars that the Book of Daniel points directly to our modern generation in which we live as "we now have advanced technical knowledge" without which the biblical scriptures of both Daniel and Revelation could not be understood. Both books are apocalyptic books which are approximately 700 years apart and are both laden with symbolism that was understood by the patriarchs at the time the books were written. 

Daniel wrote the Book of Daniel while in captivity by King Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon. 

Saint John, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus, wrote the Book of Revelation while he was exiled on the Island of Patmos in Greece.

What Daniel and John had in common:

  • Daniel was from the Royal seed and saw the destruction of the first Temple Mount by the King Nebuchadnezzar. 

  • John was from the priestly family and saw the destruction of the second Temple Mount by the Romans

  • Both Daniel and John were profits

  • Both saw visions that paralleled each other

  • Daniel was instructed by God to seal his book until the end times. Daniel 12:4 "But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."

  • John was instructed by God not to seal his book. Revelation 22:10 "And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand."

  • Daniel never saw the False Prophet (Revelation 13:11) Mark of the Beast (Revelation 13:18) the image of the beast (Revelation 1:3, 14-15) the New Jerusalem (Revelation chapters 21-22).

  • Daniel wrote for the Nation of Israel.

  • John wrote for both the church and the Nation of Israel.

  • Both Daniel and John dealt with the Nation of Israel, the Jews and the gentile Nations of the world.

It is very important to remember that the prophetic scriptures of the Holy Bible contains the inspired Word of God. The prophecies use much symbolisms that were understood at the time that the authors, namely, Daniel and Saint John wrote them. Modern scholars of the Bible clearly understand in these days that God has sealed the words of the Bible up until the right time in the future; a time that is a proper time when there is sufficient knowledge for its correct understanding or proper usage of the instructions God has given unto us to enable us to be able to recognize the signs of the ladder days that God has commanded His people; words that are sealed and embedded in the scriptures of the Bible.  
The Bible believer is to know, not just guess at, scriptures such as given in Leviticus 23.5 "In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD'S Passover." or in Numbers 9:3 "In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it."

The Bible believer or the student of the Bible will not understand the instructions given by God if certain technical fundamentals in the scriptures of the Bible are not in the firm grasp of the student. This one thing is perfectly clear.

ESSENTIAL KNOWLEDGE of the CALENDAR

Recall: 

The phases of the Moon goes from New Moon to Full Moon in fourteen (14) days. It goes from New Moon to Half Moon in seven (7) days. It goes from Half Moon to Full Moon in seven (7) days. It goes from Full Moon to the next Half Moon in another seven (7) days. It takes a full month, 28 days to go from a New Moon and through all its phases and back to a New Moon. This is a Biblical Month. For an essential understanding and knowledge of God's Calendar please click to: 

 

Recall: 
  • The Bible refers only to the Hebrew, the Nissan or the Jewish calendar.
  • Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
  • Psalm 104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
  • The Passover commences on the 15th of the Hebrew month of Nissan and last for 7 days.

Without these Fundamentals of the Biblical Calendar and the prophetic time-lines these things cannot be properly understood.
