1260 & 2520

The prophetic year is 360 days.  360 times 3.5 is 1,260.  360 times seven is 2,520.  Both these numbers are almost divisible by 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 with one exception:  1260 is not divisible by 8.  Isn’t that curious?  Revelation has two prophecies of 1,260 days:

“And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.”  Revelation 11:3

“The woman [the true church] fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.”  Revelation 12:6

One fulfillment of these is the period 539AD to 1799AD.  Napoleon struck a mortal blow to the Pope in 1799AD.  But 1,260 isn’t divisible by 8 and the prophecy doesn’t extend into the Eighth Day.  However, 2,520 does extend into the Eighth Day.  539AD plus 2,520 is 3059AD which is more than 7,000 years from the fall of Adam in 4127BC.  Is this a coincidence?
