7 Reasons Why the Book of Revelation is NOT in Your Future: #7

#7- The same timing that describes the "holy city" (Jerusalem) being trampled, is the same time in which the city was under siege by Rome: approximately 3 1/2 years IN 70AD.

Revelation 11:2
“Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the GENTILES; and they will tread under foot the holy city for forty-two months.

Daniel 7:25 speaks of a time during the Roman Empire where the time of the end (Dan 8:25-26, 12:4) will be defined as a period containing "times, time and half a time".

Times = 2 years
Time= 1 year
Half a time= 1/2 year
Totaling 3 1/2 years

Forty Two Months= 3 1/2 years

This is the same "time of the Gentiles" that Jesus describes as the fall of Jerusalem in Luke 21:

20 “But when you see JERUSALEM surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. 22 For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. 24 And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the TIMES OF THE GENTILES ARE FULFILLED.
