Revelation 12:6 predicting 1260 days until Jesus return - chapter and verse confirm the number...
Here’s one last example of hundreds of times in the Bible where chapter and verse reference numbers directly relate to verse text and thus form a type of validation check proving the accuracy and content of the Bible has not been compromised over the ages. One of the most well-known prophecies of the Bible is found in the book of Revelation:
Revelation 12:6 “Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.”
That’s 1,260 days, a number that directly reflects the chapter and verse reference of Revelation 12:6. There’s no mistaking that if God placed a validation criteria with every verse number in the Bible, this chapter and verse certainly matches the text is was designed to be with. This is one of thousands of examples where numbers associated with verses directly reflect the some aspect of the message in the text.
Want more evidence:
- The 216th verse of Revelation (gematria relates to #1260) is tells of 42 months; 3 1/2 years; or 1,260 days that blasphemies would continue - Rev 13:5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. Here again, we find a 1260 related number in the Bible's precise DNA like verse numbering.
- In Daniel 12:6 the prophet Daniel asked how long will these wonders last and the Lord answered 3 1/2 years (same as 1260 days or 42 months). Daniel 12:6-7 And one said to the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, "How long will it be until the end of these wonders?" v7 I heard the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, as he raised his right hand and his left toward heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time. Again, a verse number 12:6 related to a very special prophecy about the 1260 days. Note: some dispute this verse refers to 3 1/2 years but the chapter and verse numbers convince me.
