The 1335 Prophetic Days
“Still another prophetic period is here introduced, denoting 1335 years. Can we tell when this period begins and ends? The only clue we have to the solution of this question, is the fact that it is spoken of in immediate connection with the 1290 years, which began in 508 as shown above. From that point there shall be, says the prophet, 1290 days. The very next sentence reads, ‘Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the 1335 days.’ From what point?— From the same point, undoubtedly, as that from which the 1290 date, namely, A.D. 508. Unless they are to be reckoned from this point, it is impossible to locate them, and they must be excepted from the prophecy of Daniel when we apply to it the words of Christ, ‘Whoso readeth, let him understand.’ Matt. 24:15. From this point they would extend to 1843, for 1335 added to 508 make 1843. Beginning in the spring of the former year, they ended in the spring of the latter. Read more
D & R, pp. 323-325:
“The 1290 Prophetic Days. — We have here a new prophetic period introduced
[compared to the 1260 days], 1290 prophetic days, which according to Bible authority would denote the same number of literal years. From the reading of the text, some have inferred that this period begins with the setting up of the abomination of desolation, or the papal power, in A. D. 538, and consequently extends to 1828. We find nothing in the latter year  to mark its termination, but we do find evidence in the margin that it begins before the setting up of the papal abomination. The margin reads, ‘To set up the abomination.’ With this reading the text would stand thus: “From the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away to set up [or, in order to set up] the abomination that maketh desolate, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.’ Read more
The Prophetic Time Period of 1260 years
Next, we need to review the time period referred to as “a thousand two hundred and three score days” which is referred to in three forms in the books of Daniel and Revelation, as follows:
As “a thousand two hundred and three score days,” — Rev. 11:3; 12: 6.
As “42 months.” —Rev. 11:2 and 13: 5.
As “three and a half times.” — Dan. 7: 25 and 12: 7, and Rev. 12: 14.

The 1290 and 1335 Days of Daniel
By Nathaniel Fajardo
“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 ninety days, Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.” Daniel 12: 11, 12, K.J.V.
NOTICE that in the scripture quoted above the word sacrifice is italicized, meaning, it was added by the translators. This one added word will prove to be pivotal to the correct or incorrect interpretation of these specific time prophecies. Read more
3. The General Resurrection
All who have studied these truths know when the general resurrection takes place—at Christ’s glorious second coming—which is the hope of all ages starting from Adam. Enoch prophesied of the second coming way back in his time. Jude 14, 15. They will come from all places of the earth—graves, caverns, caves, dungeons, scaffolds, prison houses, etc., etc.,—-“a great multitude, which no man could number of all nations, kindred, and people, and tongues.” These are all who died in Christ, whether by faith during the Old Testament times where and when the animal sacrifices symbolized the perfect atoning sacrifice of Christ, or during the New Testament dispensation when all believed and died in faith on the complete efficacy of the actual sacrifice and blood shed at Calvary for the forgiveness and cleansing of all sin; the former shed at Calvary, the latter during His closing work as High Priest in the most holy of the heavenly sanctuary.

The Twenty-four Elders: Who are they?
Three men are definitely already in heaven: Enoch, Moses, and Elijah. Question: Are they perhaps part of the twenty-four elders (Rev. 4: 4, 10; 5: 5, 6, 8, 11, 14 7: 11,13; 11:16; 14: 3; 19: 4) included in the session of the investigative or pre-advent judgment began in 1844, the termination of the 2300-day prophecy of Daniel 8:14?
Uriah Smith in his Daniel and the Revelation, pp. 409-10 says this regarding the 24 elders:
“Who are these beings who surround the throne of glory? It will be observed that they are clothed in white raiment and have on their heads crowns of gold, which are tokens of both a conflict completed and a victory gained. From this we conclude that they were once participants in the Christian warfare, they once trod the earthly way with all saints; but they have been overcomers, and in advance of the great multitude of the redeemed, are wearing their victor crowns in the heavenly world. Indeed, they plainly tell us this in the song of praise which they ascribe to the Lamb [Rev. 5: 9 quoted]. . . . Read more
