REVELATION 12:7-8
V: 7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

There is what Daniel was referring to when He said Michael will stand up or arise to protect Israel and look this event is once again taking place at the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation.
Daniel cannot be referring to this, as Revelation was written in (roughly) AD 90ish, while Daniel 12 was penned sometime in 536/5 BC (In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia; Daniel 10:1).

Revelation 12:7-8 refers to two things,

[1] The original fall of Lucifer from Heaven, at around the Creation of this earth.
Isa 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!​
Isa 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:​
Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.​
Isa 14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.​

[2] The fall of satan in the minds of mankind during the time of Christ in earthly Canaan (a type of Heaven) :

Luk 10:17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.​
Luk 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.​
Luk 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.​
Luk 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.​
Luk_17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.​
Daniel 12:1 is directly connected to Luke 13:25, etc.

Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Luk 13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:

Isa 14:22 For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD.
Isa 14:23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the LORD of hosts.

Isa 28:21 For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.

Psa 3:7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.

Psa 7:6 Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.

Psa 9:19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
Psa 9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.

Psa 10:12 Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.

Psa 17:13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:

Psa 44:26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.

Psa 74:22 Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.

Psa 82:8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.

Psa 94:1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
Psa 94:2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.

Psa 102:13 Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.

Psa_109:31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.

Times, times, and a half a time is the last three and a half years of the Tribulation which according to Revelation 11:18 is known as the Wrath of God.
No. The context of the time, times and half a time, are the exact same same timeframe spoken of in scripture as the 1,260 years.

Dan. 7:25, 12:7; Rev. 11:2-3, 12:6,14, 13:5; Luk. 21:24; Num. 14:34; Eze. 4:6​

In those verses, the context shows that the timeframe is after the Roman Empire (Pagan Rome) splits and the Papacy (Papal Rome) arises:

Dan 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.​
Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.​

It is before:

Dan 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.​
The same is seen in Revelation, where the timeframe exists, again, in parallel, after the Pagan Roman Emprire (Dragon) through Herod (subject, client king, of Rome) as the church flees from persecution into the wilderness:

Rev 12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:​
Rev 12:2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.​
Rev 12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.​
Rev 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.​
Rev 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.​
Rev 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.​

Repeated in chiasm:
Rev 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.​
Again, seen during the time of the Antichrist (Vicarius Christi, Papal Rome), having the same characteristics as Daniel gives in Daniel 7, etc:

Rev 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?​
Rev 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.​
Rev 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.​

DANIEL THE PROPHET IS ONE OF THE MANY PROPHETS THAT KNEW WHEN THE RAPTURE WOULD TAKE PLACE

SEE IF YOU AGREE,

Like I have said, the Father has shown me many of the prophets in the bible that knew when the Rapture will take place and the prophet Daniel is just one of them.

Again, all the prophets in the bible that knew when the Rapture will take place have one thing in common, they all got the same timeline for the Rapture as Jesus gave us in my message on Matthew 24 and Psalm 110:3. Watch for both messages right here.

Three times Daniel the prophet told us exactly when the Rapture will take place but you have to be like a spiritual detective and dig around a little because Daniel never uses our modern word Rapture when he describes the Rapture.

The major clue that indicates that Daniel knew when the Rapture will take place is when he said, "Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt."

Again, notice that Daniel never mentions the word Rapture but he states that Multitudes who sleep will awake to everlasting life, meaning of course he is pinpointing when the Resurrection will take place. Find when the First Resurrection takes place and you get the Rapture too because these two events take place back to back, you know, "The dead in Christ will rise first. Then, we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

DANIEL 12 AND REVELATION 12 ARE BEST FRIENDS BECAUSE Daniel 12 tells us that Multitudes who sleep will awake to everlasting life and Revelation 12 tells us when this event will take place.

NOW LET'S BREAK DOWN DOWN THESE TWO CHAPTERS TO DISCOVER WHEN THE RAPTURE WILL TAKE PLACE

LET'S TALK ABOUT DANIEL 12 FIRST AND THEN LET'S COMPARE WHAT WE DISCOVER IN REVELATION 12.
Daniel 12:1
V: 1 “At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered.

Daniel 12:2a
V:2 a Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life.

All we have to do to discover when the Rapture will take place according to the prophet Daniel is find exactly when Michael the great Prince stands up to protect God's people Israel. Find when Michael arises and you get Daniel's timeline for the First Resurrection. Find the First Resurrection and we get the timeline for the Rapture too because once again these two events take place back to back.

NOW LET US COMPARE DANIEL 12 WITH REVELATION 12 AND SEE IF WE CAN FIND THE TIME WHEN MICHAEL THE GREAT PRINCE WILL ARISE TO PROTECT GOD'S PEOPLE ISRAEL.

Let's now go to Revelation 12, which is another layer of the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation to have another look at what the very day of the Rapture will look like.

REVELATION 12:7-8
V: 7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

There is what Daniel was referring to when He said Michael will stand up or arise to protect Israel and look this event is once again taking place at the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation.

NOW LOOK AT WHAT ELSE IT IS TIME FOR AT THE EXACT HALFWAY POINT IN THE SEVEN-YEAR TRIBULATION

REVELATION 12:13-14
V:13 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 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.

Times, times, and a half a time is the last three and a half years of the Tribulation which according to Revelation 11:18 is known as the Wrath of God.

REVELATION 11:18
V:18 The world was angry and your Wrath has come.

The Wrath of God is also known throughout the bible as the Day of the Lord or when the Wrath of God will commence.

Q- How do we know for certain that Revelation 12 is the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation?

A-We know that Revelation 12 is a description of another layer of the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation because it describes that this is the time when salvation and the power of the Kingdom of our God and the authority of the Messiah has come.

REVELATION 12:10
V:10 “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah."

Now if we go to Revelation 11 we find the very same events taking place where Jesus is once again taking His authority and the Kingdom with power and it also states that this is the time when salvation will take place.

REVELATION 11
The Seventh Trumpet
15 The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, and he will reign for ever and ever.”

Now, let's read verse 17-18 that reveals that this is the time when the Rapture will take place.

REVELATION 11:17-18
V:17 “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign. 18 The nations were angry, and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your people who revere your name, both great and small—

Q-How can God reward all of His people unless all of His people are now in Heaven at the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation?

LET'S DO THIS ONE LAST TIME

Q- How do we know for certain that Revelation 11 is the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation?

A- We know that Revelation 11 is the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation because God's Two Witnesses are appointed by God to prophecy for three and a half years. They begin their ministry at the beginning of the seven-year Tribulation and their ministry ends when they are killed by the beast that comes up from the abyss and they raise back to life at Revelation 11:11, which is the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation and when they rise back to life so too will all who have died in Christ, this is the Resurrection taking place and then the Rapture will follow immediately.

There is proof that the prophet Daniel knew when the Rapture will take place.

LET US GIVE THANKS FOR THE GREAT THINGS THAT OUR FATHER HAS TAUGHT US AND THE GREAT THINGS HE HAS DONE


Eliyahoo
Sorry, but you join legions of others who have diligently tried to time the rapture. Teh rapture will occur when Jesus has finished preparing a place for the church and the church alone. The event is to be a "thief in the night". It could have happened anytime from the day after Pentecost. to now.

Daniel 12 and REv. 12 are not speaking of the same thing.

Daniel 12 is Michael standing for Israel While Rev. 12 is a war in heaven where Satan is cast to the earth to persecute the jews and believers. Context matters.

Many assume the word "rapture" is in reference to the resurrection of our physical bodies into immortality. Unfortunately, many are not seeing that our resurrection is a two stage process. First spiritual, by being born again of/by Christ's Holy Spirit, and then upon Christ's Glorious and physical return, we are resurrected into the likeness of His Immortality. Rom. 8:8-9

We ourselves, in our physical and mortal bodies, ARE created of/from the dust of the earth. None are born with the Spirit of God, except John the Baptist and Jesus.

Therefore, though we are consciously awake unto ourselves and each other, we are asleep to God, being spiritually dead to God in our mortal, "earthen" bodies.
2 Cor. 4
[7] But we have this [His] treasure in earthen vessels [our mortal bodies], that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

To God, we are nothing until we are Born again of His Spirit. We are dead to God in our sinfulness of being, until we receive His forgiveness and the Gift of His Holy Spirit. Before we die in our mortal bodies, "the dust of the earth" that we are made out of, we must be born again.
If not, then we are NOT "partakers" in the resurrection of Christ, who is the firstborn from the dead, being Himself "the first resurrection.".Rev. 20
[6] Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the FIRST resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
All who are born again, are having part in the first resurrection, who is Christ Himself.

If we must use the word "rapture", I believe the "born again" experience is that rapture, the first of the two stage process of our salvation, while we still have breath.


Daniel 2
[2] And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

John 11
[25] Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

Col. 2
[12] Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye ARE risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
Col. 3
[1] If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

Now, let's read verse 17-18 that reveals that this is the time when the Rapture will take place.

REVELATION 11:17-18
V:17 “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign. 18 The nations were angry, and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your people who revere your name, both great and small—

Q-How can God reward all of His people unless all of His people are now in Heaven at the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation?

LET'S DO THIS ONE LAST TIME

Q- How do we know for certain that Revelation 11 is the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation?

A- We know that Revelation 11 is the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation because God's Two Witnesses are appointed by God to prophecy for three and a half years. They begin their ministry at the beginning of the seven-year Tribulation and their ministry ends when they are killed by the beast that comes up from the abyss and they raise back to life at Revelation 11:11, which is the exact halfway point in the seven-year Tribulation and when they rise back to life so too will all who have died in Christ, this is the Resurrection taking place and then the Rapture will follow immediately.

There is proof that the prophet Daniel knew when the Rapture will take place.

LET US GIVE THANKS FOR THE GREAT THINGS THAT OUR FATHER HAS TAUGHT US AND THE GREAT THINGS HE HAS DONE

EXCELLENT = Always keep at the forefront of your mind/heart that Scripture cannot lie.

Revelation runs in cycles and offers us viewpoints of what is soon to take place.

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS know that the Rapture will NOT occur until His Coming and the Resurrection of the dead in HIM.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Brothers, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you will not grieve like the rest, who are without hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, we also believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him.

By the word of the Lord, we declare to you that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord
will by no means precede those who have fallen asleep/died.
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will be the first to rise.

After that, we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord.

Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Sorry, but you join legions of others who have diligently tried to time the rapture. Teh rapture will occur when Jesus has finished preparing a place for the church and the church alone. The event is to be a "thief in the night". It could have happened anytime from the day after Pentecost. to now.

Daniel 12 and REv. 12 are not speaking of the same thing.

Daniel 12 is Michael standing for Israel While Rev. 12 is a war in heaven where Satan is cast to the earth to persecute the jews and believers. Context matters.
the LORD Jesus finished preparing a Place for His Church/Bride/Elect a VERY LONG time ago = Read the Gospel of John.

DANIEL THE PROPHET IS ONE OF THE MANY PROPHETS THAT KNEW WHEN THE RAPTURE WOULD TAKE PLACE

SEE IF YOU AGREE,

Like I have said, the Father has shown me many of the prophets in the bible that knew when the Rapture will take place and the prophet Daniel is just one of them.

Again, all the prophets in the bible that knew when the Rapture will take place have one thing in common, they all got the same timeline for the Rapture as Jesus gave us in my message on Matthew 24 and Psalm 110:3. Watch for both messages right here.

Three times Daniel the prophet told us exactly when the Rapture will take place but you have to be like a spiritual detective and dig around a little because Daniel never uses our modern word Rapture when he describes the Rapture.

The major clue that indicates that Daniel knew when the Rapture will take place is when he said, "Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt."
You, like a lot of people conflate the Rapture of Jesus' Church with the Second Coming. Israel will be raised up at the very end, that is when Jesus shows up to save the "144,000" (3.5-5 million Jews) trapped Jews in the Petra/Bozrah area, but he shows up with the Raptured Church/His Bride. The Jews are the Fathers bride, the 144,000" have the Fathers name in their foreheads.

Dan. 12:1-2 is about the Jewish Resurrection after the 70th week, the Bride of Christ is raised just before the 70th week.

Example of a lie = "Dan. 12:1-2 is about the Jewish Resurrection after the 70th week, the Bride of Christ is raised just before the 70th week."

Every word of God is pure;
He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.
Do not add to His words,
Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.

Proverbs 30:5-6

There is no difference and no separation in the Body of Christ between Jew & Gentile = Romans 10:10-13
For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”
For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.
For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”


Anyone who tells you that there is a separation between Jew & Gentile in Christ is a liar.

Satan always seeks to change the words of God ever slightly to seduce and deceive, just as he did in the Garden to Eve.

For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:1-3

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.

For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.

There is only ONE Resurrection at the last day for those who have been Justified by God thru Faith in His Word.

All of the Saints from Genesis on thru to Revelation will have part in the First Resurrection when the LORD Returns.

1 Corinthians chapter 15
But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.

Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

"in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished,
as He declared to His servants the prophets." - Revelation 10:7

Daniel 12:1-3

At that time Michael, the great prince who stands watch over your people, will rise up. There will be a time of distress, the likes of which will not have occurred from the beginning of nations until that time.
But at that time your people = everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered.
And many who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to everlasting life, but others to shame and everlasting contempt.
Then the wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever and ever.

JESUS spoke of the Coming Resurrection for all Saints when HE walked this earth - Matthew 22:29-32
Jesus answered and said to them, “You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven. But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.”

The Prophets, the LORD Jesus Christ and the Apostles only spoke of One Resurrection for the Just which occurs at His Second Coming.

If we must use the word "rapture", I believe the "born again" experience is that rapture, the first of the two stage process of our salvation, while we still have breath.


The rapture is the word harpazo, a Greek word Paul used when speaking of the living survivors of the GT being physically raised up to the clouds after they had been changed from mortal to immortal. It is not what being born again is, which happened LONG before the rapture happens to these people. There are also not two resurrections for believers.

A person accepts Jesus and is born again, if they live through the GT they will be raptured, as well as having been made immortal.

A person who accepted Jesus and was born again who dies, will wait in heaven until the resurrection where they will become physically alive in a new and immortal body and will be with Christ when he raptures the living believers at the second coming.

144,000 is not 3.5 million. 144,000 is 144,000.

Rev. 12 is historical, but it is the "sign in the heavens" that the events of history point to. A constellation in the heavens (often used for signs according to Genesis 1:14), is a "woman clothed with the sun with the moon at her feet and a garland of 12 stars around her head". That would be the constellations Virgo with Leo as well as Mars and Venus with Jupiter, ( the king planet) entering into the womb of Virgo (and circling around for 9 months), then exiting as if out of her womb. This historical event of the woman ( symbolic for Israel), giving birth to Jesus was WRITTEN in the heavenly constellations. It appeared AT JESUS BIRTH ON SEPT. 11, 3 BC AND RECENTLY ON SEPT. 23, 2017. Virgo appears every year, but not exactly as described in Rev. 12, only a handful of times in history.
And btw, Rev. 1-5 was also historical, but not 6-22 (even though history is referenced).
* Also a side note. Likely the star that the Magi followed that rested over Bethlehem was not a star, but the King planet Jupiter, that entered into the womb of Virgo and then existed! You can't make this stuff up.
We cannot make this up but JESUS, who is the Author and Finisher of our faith, wrote it in the heavens before we ever existed.

Wrong! That place is not done. Jesus is simply following the Jewish wedding ritual. Teh arrangement is made. The bride price is paid. the bride prepares herself to be a wife and the groom goes away to prepare a place in His Fathers house. Once the place is prepared to the Fathers satisfaction, He instructs His Son to fetch His bride!

There is nothing is Scripture that says our rooms are ready! That is 100% assumption on you rpart.

JESUS fulfilled His Wedding Agreement/Contract with us at the Last Supper.

The HE went to the FATHER with the Purchase Price of the Bride = HIS BLOOD

Then HE prepared the Place for ALL Believers in ONE ACT as HE poured out His Blood on the Mercy Seat in Heaven.

Which Resulted in this: John chapters 14-17 and Acts ch2 and Ephesians 2:4-7 and Hebrews 12:22-24

Daniel cannot be referring to this, as Revelation was written in (roughly) AD 90ish, while Daniel 12 was penned sometime in 536/5 BC (In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia; Daniel 10:1).

Revelation 12:7-8 refers to two things,

[1] The original fall of Lucifer from Heaven, at around the Creation of this earth.
Isa 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!​
Isa 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:​
Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.​
Isa 14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.​

[2] The fall of satan in the minds of mankind during the time of Christ in earthly Canaan (a type of Heaven) :

Luk 10:17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.​
Luk 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.​
Luk 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.​
Luk 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.​
Luk_17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.​
Daniel 12:1 is directly connected to Luke 13:25, etc.

Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Luk 13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:

Isa 14:22 For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD.
Isa 14:23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the LORD of hosts.

Isa 28:21 For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.

Psa 3:7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.

Psa 7:6 Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.

Psa 9:19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
Psa 9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.

Psa 10:12 Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.

Psa 17:13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:

Psa 44:26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.

Psa 74:22 Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.

Psa 82:8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.

Psa 94:1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
Psa 94:2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.

Psa 102:13 Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.

Psa_109:31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.
Lucifer rebelled before the creation of Genesis ch1

He paid the price and returned to heaven to prepare a place for us. If He follows Jewish custom, He comes for the church when our home is prepared and the Father tells the son to fetch HIs bride.

You are on a run of speculations and conjecture, but rather than taking it all on at once and clouding the overall... When are you saying the power of the Kingdom of our God and the authority of the Messiah has come?

It would appear that you believe that it is in the middle of a future seven year period. Is that what you believe? Because that is wrong according to the scriptures, as Jesus himself gave the time, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth" (2,000+ years ago).

In which case you will want to adjust your understanding of "a time, times, and half a time" to mean "all of time."

Three and a half years.

Three and a half years.

Three and a half years, is simply a way of giving definition by times, regarding an event of God in whom there is no passing of time.

In other words, God began His explanation demon-strating 7 times (the days of creation) foreshadowing all of history, and then prophetically foretold that salvation would come in the middle (three and a half...days, weeks, or years). All of which is better understood without the worldly terms of days and weeks and years, as simply, "a time, times, and half a time", meaning: "all of time, made up of two times, divided in half."

Thus, Christ came between the times of Israel and the times of the Gentiles.
