    Peace be on all.
    Matthew 24:45 = Second comming.

    Revelation 11:2,3
    Revelation 12:6,14
    Revelation 13:5,6

    = 42 months = 1260 days = Watch for second coming after 1260 years....It [the 2nd coming] has been fullfilled as I believe.

    Revelation is itself an abomination of desolation; a distraction, inspiring delusions of grandeur.

    I wonder how you think Matthew 24:45 is jointly related to the other three?

    Matthew 24:45 Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time?

    Revelation 11:2-3 But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.

    Revelation 12:6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

    Revelation 12:14 The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent's reach.

    Revelation 13:5-6 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven.

    Matthew 24:45 is not something that will occur "in time". It is about something that is real since the beginning.
    How else do you think The Bible was written? The Bible was written due to "food at the proper time".

    Revelation is a DREAM. How wise do you think it would be for a person to live his life according to his dreams?

    How wise do you think it is to live according to some one else's dreams?

    I know they are not related. This thread is not for contesting the Bible, it is to figure out what the book is telling us.

    Well I personally was thinking those passages in Revelation happen during Christ's coming

    Maybe you do do not realize yet that the Bible is a collection of many books. It was never one complete book. You have asked about Matthew and Revelation. I think popular opinion has the two books written by TWO different people.

    Can Christ come to a person without actually coming according to popular opinion? Revelation 3:20

    Revelation is my primary focus, because I don't think many will understand why I bring Matthew up.

    If you were reading in context you will see I was responding someone who mentioned that time period has passed of the 1260 days.
    All up in the kool-aid and don't know the flavor.lol

    The 1260 days was a DREAM. The lesson? Do not tell people your dreams.

    Your no help at all. We know you have your beliefs, but the purpose of the thread is to provide a plausible interpretation of what it could possibly mean. If not, I have no idea what u are doing on this thread, not contributing any insight on those passages.

    What is the relevance to the thread? If you want to debate that make your own thread.
