Luke 21:24

 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and JERUSALEM shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES be fulfilled.


Daniel 2

31 Thou, O king, saw, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.

32 This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,

33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

34 Thou saw till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.

37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.

38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. THOU ART THIS HEAD OF GOLD.

We know from Daniel 2 that Nebuchadnezzar and his Kingdom of Babylon is the HEAD OF GOLD and therefore the start of the TIMES OF THE GENTILES.

The HEAD OF GOLD is Nebuchadnezzar and his Kingdom of Babylon.

Nebuchadnezzar’s first year of sole reign was 604B.C., so this is when the TIMES OF THE GENTILES began.

How long does THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES last?

Daniel 4

10 Thus were the visions of mine head in my bed; I saw, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and the height thereof was great.

11 The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the end of all the earth:

12 The leaves thereof were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all: the beasts of the field had shadow under it, and the fowls of the heaven dwelt in the boughs thereof, and all flesh was fed of it.

13 I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and an holy one came down from heaven;

14 He cried aloud, and said thus, Hew down the tree, and cut off his branches, shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit: let the beasts get away from under it, and the fowls from his branches:

15 Nevertheless leave the stump of his roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts in the grass of the earth:

16 Let his heart be changed from man’s, and let a beast’s heart be given unto him; and let SEVEN TIMES pass over him.

17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomsoever he will, and sets up over it the basest of men.

18 This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen. Now thou, O Belteshazzar, declare the interpretation thereof, for as much as all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to make known unto me the interpretation: but thou art able; for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee.

19 Then Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, was astonished for one hour, and his thoughts troubled him. The king spake, and said, Belteshazzar, let not the dream, or the interpretation thereof, trouble thee. Belteshazzar answered and said, My lord, the dream be to them that hate thee, and the interpretation thereof to thine enemies.

20 The tree that thou saw, which grew, and was strong, whose height reached unto the heaven, and the sight thereof to all the earth;

21 Whose leaves were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all; under which the beasts of the field dwelt, and upon whose branches the fowls of the heaven had their habitation:

22 IT IS THOU, O KING, that art grown and become strong: for thy greatness is grown, and reaches unto heaven, and thy dominion to the end of the earth.

23 And whereas the king saw a watcher and an holy one coming down from heaven, and saying, Hew THE TREE down, and destroy it; yet leave the stump of the roots thereof in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts of the field, till SEVEN TIMES pass over him.

According to Daniel 4, THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES is to last for SEVEN TIMES.

How long is a TIME?

Revelation 12:14

And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a TIME, and TIMES, and HALF A TIME, from the face of the serpent.

Revelation 12:6

And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there 1260 Days.


3 ½ TIMES = 1260 DAYS

1260 DAYS ÷    3 ½ TIMES = 360 DAYS


1 TIME = 360 DAYS

1 Day = 1 Year

Ezekiel 4

1 Thou also, son of man, take thee a tile, and lay it before thee, and portray upon it the city, even Jerusalem:

2 And lay siege against it, and build a fort against it, and cast a mount against it; set the camp also against it, and set battering rams against it round about.

3 Moreover take thou unto thee an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between thee and the city: and set thy face against it, and it shall be besieged, and thou shalt lay siege against it. This shall be a sign to the house of Israel.

4 Lie thou also upon thy left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it: according to the number of the DAYS that thou shalt lie upon it thou shalt bear their iniquity.

5 For I have laid upon thee the YEARS of their iniquity, according to the number of the DAYS, three hundred and ninety DAYS: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the House of Israel.

6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty DAYS: I have appointed thee each DAY FOR A YEAR.

According to Ezekiel 4

1 DAY = 1 YEAR


1 TIME = 360 DAYS

Also, 1 DAY = 1 YEAR


1 TIME = 360 YEARS

7 TIMES = 7 X 360 YEARS = 2520 YEARS

Nebuchadnezzar’s first year of sole reign was in 604 B.C.

604 B.C. + 2520 YEARS = 1917 A.D.

The TIMES OF THE GENTILES lasted from 604 B.C. To 1917 A.D.

1917 A.D.

The TIMES OF THE GENTILES ended in 1917 A.D.  Some very important events happened in 1917 A.D.

The Balfour Declaration

The Balfour Declaration (dated 2 November 1917) was a letter from the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Baron Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.

The text of the letter was published in the press one week later, on 9 November 1917.  The “Balfour Declaration” was later incorporated into the Sevres Peace Treaty with the Ottoman Empire and the Mandate for Palestine.

The Balfour Declaration states

“His Majesty’s government view with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”

Liberation of Jerusalem

British General Edmund Allenby won the Third Battle of Gaza on November 7, 1917 by surprising the defenders with an attack at Beersheba . His force pushed northwards towards Jerusalem. The Ottomans were beaten at Junction Station on November 14, 1917 and Jerusalem was captured on December 9,1917.

The victorious General Allenby dismounted his horse and entered Jerusalem on foot out of respect for the Holy City on December 11,1917

The Muslim Calendar

The Hijri calendar, also known in English as the Muslim calendar and Islamic calendar, is a lunar calendar consisting of 12 lunar months in a year of 354 or 355 days.

This calendar enumerates the Hijri era, whose epoch was established as the Islamic New Year in 622 CE. During that year, Muhammad and his followers migrated from Mecca to Medina and established the first Muslim community (ummah), an event commemorated as the Hijrah. 

1917 AD = 1335 on Muslim Calendar

In the Muslim year 1335 (A.D. 1917) Jerusalem was delivered from the Muslim Turks. 

Daniel 12:12 Blessed is he that waits, and comes to the 1335 days.

This Egyptian coin of 1917 bears the Muslim 1335 date, given by YHWH in DANIEL 12:12, in answer to Daniel’s prayer in Chapter 9 on behalf of Jerusalem and the Jewish people.

And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there 1260 days.

The year 1844 is recognized as being the year in which the Western Powers compelled the Sultan of Turkey to sign the decree of Toleration, abolishing the death penalty for the conversion from Muhammadanism.

1844 AD was 1260 on the Muslim calendar.

1 Week = 7 Years = 7 Times
7 X 360 = 2520 Years

Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the MIDST OF THE WEEK he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

The Siege of Jerusalem was part of a military conflict which took place in the year 637 between the Byzantine Empire and the Rashidun Caliphate.

Caliph Omar ibn al Khattab was advised by his associate, Ka’ab al-Ahbar, a Jewish Rabbi who converted to Islam, that the Night Journey, which is mentioned in the Quran and specified by the hadiths of being located in Jerusalem, took place at the site of the former Jewish Temples. Accordingly the Dome of the Rock was erected between 689 and 691 CE.

2520 Years / 2 = 1260 Years

604 BC + 1260 Years = 657 CE

Midst of the Week 657 AD

Siege of Jerusalem 637 AD

Dome of the Rock 691 AD
