1260 Days symbolize 1260 years. After the breakup of the Roman Empire the Roman Catholic Church became dominant in Europe and persecuted true followers of Christ during the 1260 years of the Middle Ages. This important period appears many times in Revelation and Daniel and foreshadows persecutions of the Last Days.
The Woman Clothed with the Sun of Revelation 12 symbolized God’s people, Israel in the Old Testament and the Christian Church in the New Testament. Satan, symbolized by a dragon, persecuted the woman during the 1260 years of the Middle Ages but God protected a remnant who were faithful to Him.
