DANIEL'S SEVENTY WEEKS

Q & A

 

1.  When did Daniel have his vision about the End of Days?                  

 

660 BC

 

2.  What is Daniel's Seventy Weeks?                     

 

The prophecy contains a statement concerning God’s six-fold purpose in bringing these events to pass. Verse 24 says this purpose is 1) “to finish transgression,” 2) “to put an end to sin,” 3) “to atone for wickedness,” 4) “to bring in everlasting righteousness,” 5) “to seal up vision and prophecy,” and 6) “to anoint the most holy.”

Notice that these results concern the total eradication of sin and the establishing of righteousness. The prophecy of the 70 weeks summarizes what happens before the End of the Age, and when Jesus sets up His millennial kingdom.  (From https://www.gotquestions.org/seventyweeks.html)

 

3.  When did the 70 Weeks (490 years) begin?

 

Gabriel said the prophetic clock would start at the time that a decree was issued to rebuild Jerusalem. From the date of that decree to the time of the Messiah would be 483 years. We know from history that the command to “restore and rebuild Jerusalem” was given by King Artaxerxes of Persia c. 445 B.C. (see Nehemiah 2:1-8).

The first unit of 49 years (seven “sevens”) covers the time that it took to rebuild Jerusalem, “with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble” (Daniel 9:25). This rebuilding is chronicled in the book of Nehemiah.

Using the Jewish custom of a 360-day year, 483 years after 445 B.C. places us at A.D. 30, which would coincide with Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1-9). The prophecy in Daniel 9 specifies that after the completion of the 483 years, “the Anointed One will be cut off” (verse 26). This was fulfilled when Jesus was crucified.

Daniel 9:26 continues with a prediction that, after the Messiah is killed, “the people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.” This was fulfilled with the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70. The “ruler who will come” is a reference to the Antichrist, who, it seems, will have some connection with Rome, since it was the Romans who destroyed Jerusalem.  (From https://www.gotquestions.org/seventyweeks.html)

 

4.  When does the final week, the 70th Week of Daniel begin?

 

We do not know the day nor the hour.  This issue has been hotly debated for centuries.  But, a simple face-value reading of scriptures leads to the conclusion that the final 7 Weeks, the Great Tribulation Period, will begin with the Breaking of the 6th Seal of Tribulation, will find its Mid-Point with the Blowing of the 7th Tribulation Trumpet and will conclude after the pour out of the 7th Tribulation Bowl Judgment.

 

5.  What will happen to the people on earth?

 

All of those who, by faith, have repented of their sin, and who have confessed Him as savior and followed Him in obedience, will be saved and will be caught up in the air to meet Him.  1 Thessalonians 4:16 says, "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17Then 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 shall always be with the Lord."

 

6.  Is there anything I need to do to get ready for these events?

 

Yes.  Romans10:9 says, "that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation."

 

Matthew24:42 also tells us, “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. 43“But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. 44“For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.

 

45 “Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 “Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes."

 

"Giving hem their food at the proper time" means you are to be teaching them about Jesus, His Gospel Message, and making them disciples of Jesus and teaching them to make other disciples, and baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Daniel's Seventy Weeks - History

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

660 BC

Daniel praying for Israel, acknowledging the nation’s sins against God and asking for God’s mercy. As Daniel prayed, the angel Gabriel appeared to him and gave him a vision of Israel’s future - Daniel's 70 Weeks and the End of Days.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gabriel said the Daniel's 70 Weeks would start at the time that a decree was issued to rebuild Jerusalem. From the date of that decree 445BC,  to the time of the Messiah, would be 483 years.   (Seven “sevens” is 49 years; and sixty-two “sevens” is another 434 years; 49 years + 434 years = 483 years or AD 30 the exact year of Jesus crucifixon!

 

445 BC the command to “restore and rebuild Jerusalem” was given by King Artaxerxes of Persia c. 445 B.C. (see Nehemiah 2:1-8).

 

396 BC The first unit of 49 years (seven “sevens”) covers the time that it took to rebuild Jerusalem, “with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble” (Daniel 9:25). This rebuilding is chronicled in the book of Nehemiah.

 

 

 

 

​​

Around 6 BC: Jesus is born during the reign of Herod the Great, a Roman-appointed King of the Jews (Matthew 1 and Luke 2)

The prophecy in Daniel 9 specifies that after the completion of the 483 years, “the Anointed One will be cut off” (verse 26). This was fulfilled when Jesus was crucified, exactly 483 years from the decree!

AD 29: Jesus gives a detailed timeline of the tribulation period / the times of distress and the 70th Week of Daniel, THE GREAT TRIBULATION'S final 7 years in MATTHEW 24:

 

AD 1 - 2020 The 1st Tribulation Seal  –  Global conquest and political intrigue 

 

AD 1 - 2020 The 2nd Tribulation Seal –  Wars and Rumors of War

 

AD 1 - 2020 The 3rd Tribulation Seal  –  Famine

 

AD 1 - 2020 The 4th Tribulation Seal  –  Death

 

AD 1 - 2020 The 5th Tribulation Seal  – Martyrs, persecution AD 1; Anti-Christ, falling awayApostasy AD 1 intensifying 2020                                               

 

AD ?  The 6th Tribulation Seal - Sun darkened, moon turns red, stars will fall, Trumpet of God, Son of Man appears in the heavens.

 

 

AD 30: Jesus is crucified during the rule of Pontius Pilate, the Roman-appointed governor of Syria-Palestine

 

Gabriel said the Daniel's 70 Weeks would start at the time that a decree was issued to rebuild Jerusalem. From the date of that decree 445BC,  to the time of the Messiah, would be 483 years.   (Seven “sevens” is 49 years; and sixty-two “sevens” is another 434 years; 49 years + 434 years = 483 years or AD 30 the exact year of Jesus crucifixon!

 

THIS MARKS THE BEGINNING OF THE tribulation period SEALS 1 through 5, also known as The TIMES OF DISTRESS

 

 

Around 46–64 AD (or 67 AD): The apostle Paul’s missionary journeys and letter writing (Acts 13–28 and Pauline Epistles)

 

Daniel 9:26 continues with a prediction that, after the Messiah is killed, “the people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.” This was fulfilled with the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70. The “ruler who will come” is a reference to the Antichrist, who, it seems, will have some connection with Rome, since it was the Romans who destroyed Jerusalem.

 

 

 

 

 

70 AD: The destruction of the Jewish Temple by the Romans

Around 95 AD: Revelation, the final book of the New Testament, is completed

 

NOTE:  The breaking of the 1st Seal in the Book of Revelation says we will hear of WARS and rumors of war and that we will hear of nation rising against nation

There have been thousands upon thousands of wars and conflicts since the time of Christ. Most notable for their scope and breadth are the

  • Religious Crusades (1095 – 1291, Muslims vs Latin Church, almost 2 million dead),

  • WWI (1914 – 1918, 17 million dead), and

  • WW2 (1939 – 1945, over 70 million dead).

The events of the 1st through 5th Tribulation Seals will continue and will intensify until the 6th Seal - found in Matthew 24:29 -

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days (Seals 1 through 5) THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30“And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory. 31“And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other".
