Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.
Decoding the Apocalypse of Daniel 12:7
The words “time, times and half a time”, in my opinion, should be read as “there will be a time, in a time forthcoming where time is split or halved”.
There are two very important concepts of time that are seldom discussed. We must remember that Daniel lived during the time of the Babylonians. That time period was approximately 586 B.C. The Babylonians are the ancestors of modern man and the true chosen people, not the Jews. They originate in what is now modern day Iraq. My belief is that Judaism, Christianity and Islam all have their roots in Sumerian and Babylon history.
The Babylonians and Sumerians brought forward two very important concepts. First, the notion of “nothing or zero”, and secondly, the identification of the Saros Cycle. This cycle identifies the 3,600 year orbit of the Planet Nibiru. It is in this planet that many researchers have identified our alien origins. Here the names Anu, Enki, Enlil, Marduk and Ninmah come to identify the “gods of man”.
The other relevant date is the year 212 of the Julian Calender.It was in the year 212 that the Roman Emperor Caracalla extended Roman citizenship to all free inhabitants of the Roman Empire, which included the Jews. To the Jews this would foretell of a split in time - from bondage to freedom. This is significant because the Roman Empire was the Universe of ancient times. The other half is derived by splitting the length of the Saros Cycle (i.e. 3,600/2 = 1,800).
Therefore, the apocalyptic date that Daniel is referring to is (1,800 + 212) = 2012.
Why is war with Iran relevant? It is the fulfillment of Jewish prophecy.
The Tomb of Daniel is the traditional burial place of the biblical prophet Daniel. Various locations have been named for the site, but the tomb in Susa, Iran, is the most widely accepted.
