upon studying ‘numbers’ in Scripture, I find that these words, two, ten, twelve, etc do not MEAN A DIGIT. It is spiritual talk and must be understood to get the truth of Scripture.
think about this:
all even numbers are a double of another.
for instance two is a double of one.
four is a double of two.
six is a double of three.
eight is a double of four. et.
When God uses ‘two’, ‘ten’ or twelve’ he is showing that a thing will be doubled or DONE ONE MORE TIME.
It is not the digit, 2.
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.
This is the first time the ‘woman’ fled into the wilderness; it is when the OT saints ran to the mountains of the apostles.
their ‘time ‘ period is called, a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
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.
This is the second time the woman goes into the wilderness. This time she flies for she now has back those eagles wings.
Her time is a time, and times, and half a time
This is only mentioned one more time in Scripture, in Daniel, speaking of the very end.
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.
This time period is forty and two months, but it does not mean 42 months.
It is the time period that the beast mouth, beginning with the ending of the apostolic church of Acts, and continuing until the rising up of the Second Witness, the true people of God in Psalm 149.
This is the way you must study scripture to come to any real truth. all your beast preachers are feeding you now is carnal lies.
