The books of Daniel and Revelation are often studied together, because their prophecies concerning the end times dovetail with each other nicely. Both books mention a certain number of days during ...
The different numbers are not variant counts of the same event. They refer to different aspects of the tribulation beginning with the abomination of desolation which occurs about halfway during the seven-year peace treaty. In my opinion, the 1,335 days mark the time from the abomination of desolation to the end of the seven year peace treaty. The treaty must be observed as agreed to for seven years, even though the beast has been already cast into the lake of fire, and there is no one left on earth to stop the Jews from breaking the treaty terms. The 1,290 days refer to the time from the abomination of desolation until the time the kings of the east and the armies of heaven totally defeat the beast (Rev 9:13-21,16:12,19:19-21). The beast is cast alive into the lake of fire and the Jews and Christians are released from persecution at that time. The 1,260 days are the time from the abomination of desolation until the time the two prophets are killed by the beast. These two prophets are able to smite the earth with plagues (Rev 16: 1-21) as often as they will - this may have the effect of somewhat lessening the intensity of the persecution of the Jews and Christians.
