This power rules for “a time and times and half a time” (Daniel 7:25).
By comparing Daniel 7:25 with Revelation 12:6,14 it is clear that this time prophecy is another way of saying 1,260 days.
A “time” is one year, “times” is two years” and “half a time” is six months or as the Amplified Bible translates it, “three and-one-half years”.
Based on the 30-day calendar used by the Ancient Scriptures, three and-a-half years is 1,260 days.
In Bible prophecy, a day is a symbolic code for a literal year (Ezekiel 4:6).
Thus 1,260 days represents 1,260 literal years.
Seven times in the books of Daniel and Revelation the same time period is given, using different phrases, to represent the length of rule for this Antichrist power.
