SRR 107 The Danielic Imperative, Episode 21 — The Days, Weeks, Months and Years of Prophecy, part 2

In this episode, we continue where we left off in Episode 20 on understanding the time periods of prophecy in Daniel and Revelation. We provide a recap of the lunisolar calendar—its Scriptural origins, and the need to understand that calendar in order to interpret properly the time periods of prophecy. Those time periods have been given to us with the lunisolar calendar in mind, and the Christian must be familiar with it. We then turn to the “ten day” tribulation of Revelation 2:10 and the “five month” torment of unbelievers in Revelation 9:5,10, to show not only how they are related to each other, but also how they relate to Revelation 12 and 13. We conclude with a discussion on the “hour, and a day, and a month, and a year” of the Sixth Trumpet of Revelation 9:15 to show why we cannot interpret that period as a 391 year and 15 day period (as has been done occasionally in eschatology), and show how the “hour, and a day, and a month, and a year” are to be understood. In this episode we begin to touch on the seals, trumpets and vials of Revelation as a prelude to coming episodes in which we will examine each one individually.
