Numbers from Daniel and Revelation

“And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet
were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion:
and the Dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” Rev. 13:2

February 2008

Greetings in Jesus’ Name!

Ever since I returned from Israel my mind has been on the end-time events that are taking place so rapidly. It is hard to keep up with them all. I saw with my own eyes the Menorah being moved from the Cardo to the overlook of the Temple Mount. I watched as a bulletproof bubble was erected to protect the eight-foot solid gold sacred vessel, worth more than four million dollars.

Jewish craftsmen have prepared every sacred vessel in preparation for the Third Temple. These vessels have been carefully prepared by Jewish artisans for the first time since 70 A.D. And they are all on display at the Temple Mount Institute for a mere four shekels.

Little did I know when I began attending Dr. Gerald Schroeder’s classes ten years ago that the Menorah would stand just beneath our classroom window. Aish HaTorah (The Fire of the Torah) is where I attend class when I’m in Israel. It overlooks the Wailing Wall and the Temple Mount. Because of where the Menorah now stands, literally millions of tourists will see it.

The popular topic of conversation now is the erection of the Third Temple. Will it happen? When will it happen? Surely Jesus is coming very soon.

Just last Thursday an article appeared in the Jerusalem Post telling about a 1st Temple seal. This medallion was discovered near the City of David by Dr. Eilat Mazar. The finding proves several things: 1. Jewish people lived in the Holy Land 3,000 years ago, despite Arab denials to the contrary. 2. Nehemiah 7:6 – 55 confirms the find, or, if you prefer, the find confirms the detailed factuality of the Bible.

Here is a quote from Dr. Mazar: “One cannot help being astonished by the credibility of the biblical source as seen by the archaeological find.”

If you would like to read the entire article:

My instructor, Dr. Gerald Schroeder, is a member of the U.S. Atomic Energy commission, holding two Ph.Ds, one in Nuclear Physics and one in Earth Sciences. ( The most famous atheist in the world, professor Antony Flew, has recently come to faith in God by being exposed to Dr. Schroeder and his teachings.
I have listened to Dr. Schroeder lecture for about 50 hours. Each time I am totally blown away and amazed by his teaching—so powerful, so knowledgeable, so wonderful. Yet he remains so humble. He rides his bicycle to and from class and is always available after class to answer questions.

I said to Dr. Schroeder, “I feel so stupid around you, but I have so many questions.” He replied, “There are no stupid questions---only stupid answers!” Sitting under his teaching makes me realize that we have learned so very little in the church and in our Sunday school classes.

Back home in America a person found out that I had gone to Israel, so he asked, “Did you drive over there?” Someone else, who has been in the church all of his life, stated: “I don’t even know where Israel is located!”

Most Christians I meet do not even know what the Menorah is!

So where do we begin in America? We must begin on the kindergarten level. God states in Hosea 4:6: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge!”

Daniel prophesied that in the last days knowledge would increase.

I have been studying the book of Daniel. Two times it says “seal up the words of this book until the time of the end! (Daniel 12:4,9).”

Well . . . we are living in the time of the end and some of the mysteries are being unveiled. Here are a couple “mysteries” that have recently been revealed:

Daniel 12:11

“From the time the daily sacrifice is taken away (583 B.C.) and the sacrilegious object that causes desecration is set up (68 A.D.) to be worshiped; there will be 1290 days. And blessed are those who wait and remain until the end of the 1335 years (732 A.D.)!”

In Daniel 12:11 God talks about “1290” days and “1335” days. Do all the math you want and it makes no sense. . . until you realize that the Hebrew calendar is totally different from ours. For instance, on January 6, 2008 the Jewish calendar says it is Tevet 28, 5768.

This means that there is a 3,760 year difference between our calendar and the Hebrew calendar: Duh! 5,678 minus 2008=3760.

Full Life Crusade, P.O. Box 398, Winona Lake, IN 46590 Tel. (574) 267-7546

You may not realize this, but we did not even get the calendar we have now until 1582. Pope Gregory (thus, The Gregorian Calendar) had it made. Our calendar is only 426 years old. The Jewish calendar, or the Levitical calendar, is 5,768 years old, dating from Adam.

So, don’t let me lose you here. Our calendar is based on solar years: 365.24 days to the year.

The Jewish calendar is based on 360 days to the year.

Now let’s go back to Daniel 12:11. How can we convert the “1290” days and the “1335” days to the Gregorian calendar, the one which we use?

The math is very simple once you stop and think about it: Divide 360 by 365.24 and you get .9856532.

Now multiply “1290” by .9856532 and you get “1271”.

So, going back to Daniel 12:11, we can substitute our new number---“1271”.

When was the daily sacrifice stopped?

Some people would say it was 586 B.C. because this is the date when Babylon invaded Judah. But it was not until three years later that the daily sacrifice was actually stopped. So the actual date is 583 B.C. There is a reason for the three-year delay. You can ask me later so this does not get too complicated here.

Now we have two reliable numbers: 583 B.C. and 1271 days.

Because 583 is B.C. one must subtract 583 from 1271.

This gives us 688 A.D.!

Again, if you were educated in the United States (like I was) this number means absolutely nothing to you. But it means a great deal to most of the rest of the world.

The Dome of the Rock was erected in 688 A.D.!

Inside the Dome of the Rock there is a caption that says, “God forbid that He should have a son.”

The Dome of the Rock is on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israel and has been there for 1,320 years. This is the exact location where God told Abraham to go in order to sacrifice his son, Isaac: Mt. Moriah.

I believe that the Dome of the Rock is the abomination of desolation. It has been right in front of our eyes for 1320 years and we never even noticed it.

What other truths have been right in front of our eyes that we have not seen?

But you might ask, “How can you change ‘days’ to ‘years’? The Bible says ‘days’.” In Numbers 14:34 we find out how God thinks about a day: “Because the men who explored the land were there for forty days, you must wander in the wilderness for forty years---a year for each day, suffering the consequences of your sins.”

Now let’s tackle the “1335” days.

We will use the exact same formula as above: .9856532 times 1335 equals 1315.

1315 minus 583 equals 732 A.D.

Once again, because we received our education in the U.S., 732 A.D. means nothing to us. I’ll explain:

Mohammed was born in 571 A.D. and died in 632 A.D. He lived 61 years. Exactly 100 years after his death something profound took place in Europe called The Battle of Tours.

For more than 100 years Muslims had gone from city to city and country to country forcing people to “convert or die”. Those who would not declare, “There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is his prophet” would be tortured, raped, ravaged and butchered (heads sawn off, etc., etc.). This period of time was the first Jihad. So in a very short time most of the known world had “converted” to Islam, all, that is, except Europe.

Emir Abd er Rahman led 300,000 crazed and demonized Arabs to Spain by ships. In a very short space of time he forced the Spaniards to “convert” to Islam. Not satisfied with spilling the blood of tens of thousands of innocent Spaniards, he led his troops over the Pyrenees Mountains to France, planning to de-Christianize all of Europe, and force them to chant, “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet.”

But God had a man!

The man’s name was Charles. Later he was named Charles Martel (the hammer). I’m sure that the Spirit of God was upon him. He decided that he would stop the Arab madness.

He went to the farmers near the city of Tours and told them that their wives and daughters would be raped by Emir’s butchers if they did not rise up and fight. Because the farmers did not have any weapons, they brought their scythes, hoes, and shovels to the battlefront.

To make a long story short: Charles and his farmers fought with such fury that the 300,000 terrorists fled before them. Emir Abd er Rahman was killed in the Battle of Tours, the 1st Jihad was stopped, and Europe was spared.

Rev. 13:3

“ And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; . . .” (end of the first Jihad)

“ . . . and his deadly wound was healed:” (the second world-wide Jihad)

“ . . . and all the world wondered after the beast.”

How did Islam expand in such a short time? Why are 1.8 billion people caught up in this fraud? Why are leaders so blind? How are they able to make statements like: “Islam is a peaceful religion”? And at the same time Muslims are torturing, raping, and killing, just like Emir did. It is history repeating itself.

“Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” Rev. 13:4

If the United States of America cannot overcome the terrorists, then who can?

The “beast” gets his power from the Dragon. And he is making war with the saints, and will overcome them (Rev.13:7).

Now you know why 688 A.D. and 732 A.D. are important!

The first date is when the Dome of the Rock was erected. The second date is when the 1st Jihad ended.

Knowing all of the above, no wonder I got chill bumps when I watched the Menorah being moved. And no wonder I stood in awe as I wiped water off the 600-ton foundation stone of the Temple Mount ( Joel 3:18).

“ . . . a fountain will burst forth from the Lord’s Temple.”

Those of us with our eyes open know assuredly that the return of the Lord Jesus is imminent! Signs are everywhere. Israel became a nation in 1948. In 1967 the Jewish people captured Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.

And even as this letter is being written our President is placing pressure on Israel to divide Jerusalem and The Land.

“I will judge them for harming my people . . . and for dividing up my land” (Joel 3:2).

The other time our nation forced Israel to give up Gaza, hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. What do you suppose will take place here in the United States if we force Israel to give up the city of Jerusalem?

Most people do not realize that the Living God of the Bible considers The Holy Land to be the “apple of His eye”.

Jesus has told us what to do: “Watch and pray.”

In this letter I have tried to help you to “watch” in the hopes that you will pray like you have never prayed before.

Billy Graham stated many years ago: “If God does not judge America, then He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”

We are already being judged and most people do not even know it. Our open border to the south will prove to be a great judgment, increasing crime, strange diseases, economic collapse and eventually civil war.

The wealth transfer to the Arab nations through oil purchase has healed the wound of the “beast” (the Leopard, Bear, Lion of Daniel and Revelation), and is financing the 2nd Jihad in the image of the 1st Jihad. This also is one of the judgments on our nation. Each time we fill up our vehicles with gasoline we are sponsoring worldwide terrorism.

So these are the days to pray!

May God bless you for helping us to spread the gospel during these last days. Thank you so much.

In His Service,

Wesley Smith
