The 70th Week Of Daniel Deception

Understanding the seven years of the 70th week of Daniel is very important, because of the truth about their fulfillment, and the deceptions which are based on them.

The truth is that the 70th week of Daniel started when Messiah was baptized at age 30, and anointed by the Spirit.

Messiah’s ministry took place during the first half of the 7 years; so it’s not possible that it is yet future.

The truth is that the covenant of Daniel 9:27 is not just a 7-year covenant, as we’ve been led to believe.

It is the everlasting covenant, the same one that Abraham was saved by, as he believed by faith that the Father would provide a Lamb to atone for his sins.

The truth is that Messiah and His Disciples fulfilled the 70th week of Daniel, from 27-34 A.D., when they confirmed with the Jews for 7 years that He is the promised Messiah, who ratified the everlasting covenant with His blood as the Passover Lamb.

Messiah confirmed that He was the promised Messiah through His miracles, His wisdom, His knowledge of the Hebrew letters, His fulfillment of prophecy, and by His resurrection.

After Messiah’s ascension, the Apostles continued to confirm to the Jews that He is the promised Messiah, by proclaiming how He fulfilled prophecy and how He rose again.

On Pentecost, 3,000 Jews were saved from the witness of the Apostles being filled with the Spirit, and preaching the Gospel in their languages. The Church of Messiah is built on a foundation of Jews, who accepted Messiah as their Savior.

Paul proclaimed Jew first, and so it was. The seven years ended when the Jewish leaders stoned the Apostle Stephen to death, when he proclaimed that they had killed their promised Messiah.

Immediately after Stephen’s death, the Gospel was also shared with the Gentiles.  The disciples were scattered throughout Judea and preached the Gospel. Philip was led to the Ethiopian Eunuch, who was saved. Saul was converted to be the Apostle to Gentiles. Peter was given the vision of the unclean animals, which represented that the everlasting covenant was to be preached to the Gentile nations. The Samaritans received salvation and the Spirit of the Father.

Scripture clearly shows us how the 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled, as Messiah and His Apostles confirmed with the Jews that He is their promised Messiah.

Some accepted Him and were saved, but most rejected Him and were condemned.

The deception is that the 70th week of Daniel hasn’t been fulfilled yet.

We’ve been told that it is about an end-times antichrist who makes a 7-year peace agreement with Israel, which starts a 7-year tribulation period.

The Jesuits created this deception in the 16th century to deflect blame away from the Popes of Rome, as the Protestant Reformers had rightly identified them as the Little Horn of Daniel, Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, and antichrist beast of Revelation 13.

They had Jesuit Priest Francisco Ribera, a brilliant man with a doctorate in theology, write a 500 page commentary with an opposing view, where he manipulated prophecies in the books of Daniel and Revelation, to create the narrative of a one-man antichrist in an end-time 7-year tribulation.

This idea, called Futurism, was quickly adopted as the Roman Catholic Church’s official position on the Antichrist.

The true Church effectively rejected these futuristic concepts until the 19th century, when the Jesuits caused several people to promote these concepts; including Pastor Edward Irving, John Nelson Darby and Cyrus Ingerson Scofield, which led to these deceptions being taught at Dallas Theological Seminary, where the leaven of the Jesuits deceptions have spread around the world.

The historical witness of the many persecuted believers and theologians of the past have been pushed aside, and futurism is now taught by most Pastors.

I understand that this explanation of the 70th week of Daniel may be new to you, so I want to step back and take a child-like, logical view of the prophecy.

Simply ask yourself:

How long does it take the Father to fulfill His own 70 week prophecy?

The obvious and correct answer is 70 weeks.  If a 70 week prophecy is given and it is not fulfilled in 70 consecutive weeks, then the prophecy is not valid.

What week follows the 69th week?

The obvious answer is the 70th week, but the enemy would have you believe that there is a 1,990+ year time gap between the 69th and 70th week, even though there is no such time gap defined in Daniel 9.

Daniel 9:25 mentions the arrival of the promised Messiah, and then Daniel 9:27 mentions a ‘covenant‘. Whose covenant do you suppose that it is referring to?

Isn’t it logical to assume that it is Messiah’s covenant, as the reason that He came was to die to ratify the everlasting covenant with His blood as the Passover Lamb?

The text even proclaims that He was ‘cut off‘, meaning that He was killed, in the middle of the seven years, which matches Isaiah’s prophecy about the promised Messiah, in Isaiah 53:8, “He was taken from prison and from judgment. And as for His generation, who considered that He shall be cut off from the land of the living? For the transgression of My people He was stricken.

The consequences of the 70 Weeks of Daniel deception are grand!

The enemy’s end times deception is based on the concept of a futuristic 70th week of Daniel.

It causes people to look for an end times one-man Antichrist, instead of identifying the office of the papacy as the beast of Revelation, the Little Horn of Daniel and the Son of Perdition.

This is the very reason that the end times 7 year tribulation deception was created by the Roman Catholic Church.

They were being accused by the Protestant Reformers of being the Antichrist system who persecuted the saints.

The Protestant Reformers told people to ‘come out of her‘, which caused millions of people to leave the Roman Catholic Church and be saved by the pure Gospel of Messiah.

The enemy has programmed our minds to view the 70th week of Daniel as futuristic. He has used Pastors, Left Behind movies, books, etc.

But when you understand that the 70th week of Daniel has been fulfilled, and that it’s not an end-times 7-year tribulation period; most of the enemy’s deceptions about prophecy fulfillment crumble to the ground.

The Revelation Timeline Decoded Bible study series gives you the proof that the Popes of Rome are the beast of Revelation, the Little Horn of Daniel and the Son of Perdition.

David, please give us the Daniel verses that confirm that the 70 weeks of Daniel started when the Messiah was baptized at age 30, and that the Messiah and his disciples would fulfill the 70th week of Daniel from 27-34 A.D. You mention the word covenant in Daniel 9:27 but you conveniently omit the abomination that causes desolation from this verse, which Jesus himself refers to in Matthew 24:15. Who exactly is this “HE” mentioned in Daniel 9:27? How can the Jews confirm a seven year covenant with Jesus Christ, when though out the Gospels, the Jews clearly rejected his messages and miracles, and plotted to kill Jesus on numerous occasions? Do you actually think the Jews ended the sacrifices and offerings after Jesus died on the cross? This ended when the temple was destroyed in 70 A.D. However Daniel 12:11,and 2 Thessalonians 2:4, tells us about a future temple, and a man of lawlessness desecrating this future temple by claiming he is God. Now if you have proof that these verses occurred in 70 A.D. please provide your biblical references. Also Daniel 7:19-25, Daniel 11:36, Revelation 13, and Revelation 17:9-14, tell us that the Antichrist or Beast will rule the world and the Devil will give him his own power and throne and great authority. Give us the Pope of Rome that walked inside the temple and declared himself God. Which Pope of Rome was given 42 months to persecute, wage war, and overcome God’s people? If the 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled, then Jesus Christ should be reigning and ruling the world. So please tell us who is currently ruling this world. Jesus Christ, or Satan.

Michael, the answers to your questions are in my studies.

I shall ask you some questions too; which if you answer me, I also shall answer your questions.

In what year did the 70 weeks of Daniel begin to be fulfilled?

How long does it take Elohim to fulfill His own 70 week prophecy?

What verse in the Bible says that there is a time gap in between the 69th and 70 week of Daniel 9?

What verse in Daniel 9 uses the name ‘antichrist’?

What happened in the temple when Messiah died as the Passover Lamb?

What is the abomination of desolation, mentioned in Daniel 9 and Matthew 24?

How many Jews were saved on Pentecost?

Does Acts mention other Jews believing in Messiah?

What verse in Daniel 9 says that after the 70th week is fulfilled, that Messiah would be reigning and ruling the world?

Based on the Greek word for ‘temple’, what kind of temple was the Apostle Paul describing in 2 Thessalonians 2?

Hello guys. 🙂

Dan 12:1-13 is this not connected to matt.24:14-29?
If 70 weeks took place on our History why is that in Matt. 24:verse 14 signified “then end would come? then on verse 15 -28 follows the 70 weeks of Daniel.

Why is that in matt 24: 29 stated” After those Tribulation ” signs would come. If the He comes like a thief why in Verse 29 preced signs?

Did They found Enoch floating(divinely protected) through the flood? Or he Disappear?
What happened to Elijah? Why did he disappear?
Why old testament saints graves opened?(matt 27:50-57)
In Acts 1:9-11 what happened to Jesus, why did he disappear in disciples sight?
Well Did they go puff in the air?

Who are those armies riding on white horse following Jesus Christ riding on white horse? if they were angels why would they ride if they could fly? (Rev 19:14)

Is 1000 yrs not literal? If so,the Promises to abraham -to david – israel is forfeited.

Admonition to Laodicean Rev 3:19. I always believe God will do that in last age. 🙂 He is a loving God.

Yes, Daniel 12 is connected to Matthew 24. Here is the study. http://theolivetdiscourse.com/daniel-12-is-not-about-an-end-times-antichrist/

“The end” of Matthew 24:14 is referring to the end of the Jewish nation, which happened in 70 A.D., when their temple and city, and the Jewish leadership system, was desolated; effectively ending the Jewish national existence.

Revelation 19:14 is talking about the saints, as Revelation 19:7 talks about the bride being made ready.

Please share with me your thoughts on 1 Corinthians 11 regarding the Lord’s Supper and the practice today of ‘do this in remembrance of me’.

David April 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm

I believe that we are to remember Messiah’s sacrifice for our sins as the Passover Lamb, on Passover; by eating bread and drinking wine, in remembrance of what He has done for us. Simple as that.

Reply

Locksley June 3, 2017 at 2:27 pm

Hi guys,
Yeshua fulfilled the Passover “fully”: He kept YHWH’s passover at the right time, the beginning of the 14th day; He and His disciples went out before midnight, the death angel came and as the true lamb, He asked for death to pass-over the disciples (let these go), and He was taken and killed.

After the Passover meal was finished Yeshua confirmed the Everlasting Covenant anew (now includes house of Judah, house of Israel and the nations through the gospel, etc.), with many that was with Him – not just the 12. The remembrance and observation of this confirmation through His blood and body now depend on us now, not a set date, it is as often as we choose to do it.

1 Corinthians 11’s context was not Passover day. It was believers coming together at someone’s home, and some ate too much, and some drank too much (and the grape juice got them drunk…lol). The communion/Lord’s Supper is to be observed regularly in the right manner, and don’t forget to “discern” the body: on it was laid our curses; sin, sickness, poverty, and death.

And by the way, yes 70 sevens (week) is 70 sevens, YHWH was not teaching “new math”.

Moose April 18, 2017 at 2:39 pm

David,

The 70 weeks are not yet fulfilled; how can it be when the it’s end involves bringing an end to sin and setting up an everlasting kingdom?
Again, it is a time line (complicated but not so much) calculated from Nebuchadnezzar through the birth and death of Jesus/ preaching of the gospel to the nations/ satan taking over and ruling over for the last 3.5 yrs (which is figurative) the end which is 2300 AD.

Reply

David April 18, 2017 at 2:52 pm

If a 70 week prophecy is not fulfilled in 70 weeks, it is invalid. We know that the 70 weeks started when the Jews were empowered to rebuild the temple and city, so we know that the 70 weeks were fulfilled.

Maybe you should actually read the studies before expressing your opinion.

Messiah fulfilled all that was defined in Daniel 9:24.

Regarding, To make an end of sins.

No man can stop sinning, so it’s impossible that the Jews could make an end of sins.

Let’s now look at how Messiah made an end of sins.

“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29

“For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.” Romans 6:10

“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,” Romans 8:2-3

“For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.” Hebrews 9:26

“Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.” Hebrews 9:28

“And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God.” Hebrews 10:11-12

“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,” then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” Hebrews 10:16-17

“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit.” 1 Peter 3:18

“And you know that He was manifested to TAKE AWAY OUR SINS, and in Him there is no sin.”1 John 3:5

Messiah setup His Father’s kingdom in the 1st century, which has been expanding ever since. Did He not say that the Kingdom is at hand? http://theolivetdiscourse.com/messiah-set-up-his-kingdom/

“My Kingdom is not of this world” John 18:36 The Kingdom of Earth is Jehovah’s, a cruel brutal God. “I Jehovah am a man of war” Exodus 15:3> The opposite of the Loving Father of Jesus that says “Love your enemies” “who cares for a sparrow that falls to the ground.”
The Prophecies of Daniel are twofold, [the 7 years are split into two]one relates to the life of Jesus on Earth as in the above accurate account, secondly the break in that 7 years, gives the final three and a half years the events that lead [2017 June to 2019 June] to the next super power being Israel who will reign for a 1000 years after the collapse of the present world order in an Armageddon of a Nuclear war lasting three and a half years. The man of sin is a Jew, who have controlled the world since Egypt under Joseph Babylon under Daniel and Rome through an apostate Christianity inspired by Judaism, under the Pope who is also secretly a Jew.This world is not our Kingdom…but the Kingdom of Heaven.

Reply

David April 25, 2017 at 12:50 am

The 70 weeks of Daniel prophecy defined three time periods of 7 weeks, 62 weeks and 1 week. There is no text which states that there is a time break in the middle of the 70th week. And besides that, if a 70 week prophecy is not fulfilled in 70 weeks, it’s invalid.

As for the supposed 3 1/2 years in the end times; Daniel and John were pointing to the 1,260 year reign of the Popes of Rome, who fulfill Bible prophecy as the Little Horn of Daniel 7, the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the antichrist beast of Revelation 13. http://revelationtimelinedecoded.com/the-antichrist-sea-beast-of-revelation-13-is-the-popes-of-the-roman-catholic-church/

As for the end times super power, it is the Jesuits of Rome, who rose to power out of the Roman Catholic Church. They covertly control America, and almost every nation in the world; except Syria, Iran and North Korea; which is why those countries are being demonized, to justify military action against them. http://revelationtimelinedecoded.com/the-earth-beast-of-revelation-13-jesuit-generals-of-rome/

Luke April 29, 2017 at 6:00 am

Hey David,

How can we be sure the 1290 days between the sacrifice ending and the abomination of desolation being set up mentioned in Daniel 12:11 doesn’t refer to the time between the sacrifices ending halfway through the week and abomination in Daniel 9:27? Seems like this connection makes logical sense.

Reply

David April 29, 2017 at 4:53 pm

Luke, Daniel 12:11 says that there will be 1,290 days between the sacrifices ending and the abomination of desolation being setup. Messiah’s death in 31 A.D. as the Passover Lamb ended the need for temple sacrifices, but the Jews did not stop making them. And we know that the abomination of desolation did not occur 3 1/2 years later. So those two timelines do not connect.

The first division of the Roman army, the abomination of desolation, appeared 1,290 days prior to the Roman army flooding the city, killing the remaining Jews, and destroying the temple; which ended the ability to make temple sacrifices.

I hope that clarifies it for you. Bible prophecy can be confusing because there are 3 1/2 year periods in Daniel 7, in Daniel 12, and several times in Revelation; but they point to different periods of fulfillment.

Reply

Luke April 29, 2017 at 6:13 pm

Hey thanks for the response. I’ve been through this stuff in detail and I understand the proposed fulfillments behind the two and that the two timelines don’t connect. That’s my question in a nutshell is how can we say for certain these are referring to the two separate sacrifice ending events? We know the abomination referred to is the same event. We also know that this did not happen 1290 days after the crucifixion.

Possibilities:
1. There is a detail in the original wording I am missing that would lead me to believe 9:27 and 12:11 refer to the 2 different sacrifice ending events noted.

2. Daniel 9:27 does not apply to the crucifixion, but the ending of sacrifice in 70AD

Not trying to be difficult, I just think this is a valid question. Do you at least see my point? Why would we assume the context changes in 12:11 and is referring to a different event? Is it just solely because that’s how it fits best with history? Seems like 12:11 and 9:27 logically would refer to the same thing.

Reply

David April 29, 2017 at 6:35 pm

I’m not totally seeing your point, but I understand the confusion, as there is 7 years in the 70th week; which is split into two parts essentially, as Messiah died at the midpoint.

Daniel 9:27 is proclaiming that the need for temple sacrifices would end at Messiah’s death, which was confirmed when the temple curtain was torn in two. So we know that Messiah fulfilled Daniel 9:27, in 31 A.D.

But the Jews kept making sacrifices, and that would only be stopped when the temple was destroyed, which is what Daniel 9:26 foretold.

So there are two events about the temple sacrifices ending: Messiah’s sacrificial death, which stopped the need for them; and Messiah sending the Roman army to destroy the temple, which stopped them physically from taking place.

The first parts of Daniel 9:26 and 27 point to what would happen in the 70th week of Daniel. The latter parts of those verses pointed to the desolation of the temple, city and Jews; and effectively the end of the Jewish nation; as most of them had rejected their promised Messiah.

Reply

Luke April 29, 2017 at 10:23 pm

I completely follow your explanation, but how these were fulfilled is not my question. I’ll try one more time to lay out what I’m asking more clearly.

Daniel 9:27 KJV

And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

(We have a sacrifice being taken away directly followed by the desolation)

Daniel 12:11 KJV

And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

(We have a sacrifice being taken away directly followed by the desolation but this adds a timeframe between the events)

Now, try to pretend you are reading Daniel for the first time and remove any preconceived notions of what fulfills these. What makes us safe to assume the context changes and 12:11 refers to the Romans taking away the sacrifice while 9:27 refers to Messiah taking away the need for sacrifice based on the details of the TEXT ONLY?

Again, don’t mean to nitpick, but if I was a student learning this for the first time I think it’s an obvious question, and I don’t have a good answer other than that’s how it fits best while keeping our interpretation of the 70 weeks in place.

Overall I’ve really enjoyed your sites, and you have a lot of good info on these. Thanks for putting all this work in. Would love to ask some other unrelated questions I have sometime to get your take.

Locksley June 3, 2017 at 3:12 pm

Hi again guys.
May I just add a couple of things?
Watch for context change and the missing parentheses.

1. Daniel 9 and Daniel 12 are not the same context nor vision:
Daniel 9:1 In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes…
Daniel 10:1 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel… (this one continues through 12).

2. The scriptures are written “parenthetically”, meaning some explanation, or relevance are interjected into a passage, that is why we need to rightly divide the Word. Example: Ephesians 6 – put an open parenthesis after “the whole armor of God” in verse 13, and close parenthesis after “the sword of the Spirit” in verse 17 and you will see what “the whole armor of God” is.

Diane May 25, 2017 at 12:08 am

Hey David, Unfortunately even if you give scriptures of proof, there are those that will not accept it, you are absolutely right, the 70th week has been fulfilled with our Lord Jesus Christ. If one reads the scripture carefully, you see there is No rapture of the church spoken of, no mention of an anti-christ, and there is only one that can put an end to sacrificing, and Jesus did it at the cross. It takes studying, but more importantly when the truth is given to you, learn to accept it.
Thank You!

David May 25, 2017 at 1:33 am

Hey Diane 🙂 Yeah, sadly, the programming of the enemy has caused people to think that they know the script of the 70th week of Daniel, so it’s hard to helped them see what Scripture is really saying.

george July 1, 2017 at 8:09 am

after reading your article, and opening up different translations of the text in English i was skeptical in your analysis. However, i pulled up the Greek Septuagint with a more modern greek translation and sure enough, there is NO EMPHASIS of a “archtype antichrist” in vs 26. As for verse 27, although the LXX doesn’t specifically refer to Christ but a male gender, in the modern Greek translation it is interpreted as the Christ.
Δαν. 9,26 (LXX) καὶ μετὰ τὰς ἑβδομάδας τὰς ἑξηκονταδύο ἐξολοθρευθήσεται χρῖσμα, καὶ κρίμα οὐκ ἔστιν ἐν αὐτῷ· καὶ τὴν πόλιν καὶ τὸ ἅγιον διαφθερεῖ σὺν τῷ ἡγουμένῳ τῷ ἐρχομένῳ καὶ ἐκκοπήσονται ἐν κατακλυσμῷ, καὶ ἕως τέλους πολέμου συντετμημένου τάξει ἀφανισμοῖς.
Δαν. 9,26 ( modern) Μετά δε την παρέλευσιν των εξήντα δύο εβδομάδων ετών, θα θανατωθή ο χριστός. Κυρίου, ο Σωτήρ, χωρίς να υπάρχη καμμία απολύτως αμαρτία και αιτία θανάτου δι’ αυτόν. Η πόλις της Ιερουσαλήμ και ο άγιος ναός θα καταστραφούν μαζή με τους ηγουμένους, τους άρχοντας της εποχής εκείνης. Οι κάτοικοι θα κατακλυσθούν από συμφοράς και ένας ξένος λαός θα αναλάβη πάλεμον κατά του Ισραήλ, μέχρι δε τέλους του πολέμου θα επιφέρη φοβεράς καταστροφάς και τρομερούς αφανισμούς.
Δαν. 9,27 (LXX) καὶ δυναμώσει διαθήκην πολλοῖς, ἑβδομὰς μία· καὶ ἐν τῷ ἡμίσει τῆς ἑβδομάδος ἀρθήσεταί μου θυσία καὶ σπονδή, καὶ ἐπὶ τὸ ἱερὸν βδέλυγμα τῶν ἐρημώσεων, καὶ ἕως τῆς συντελείας καιροῦ συντέλεια δοθήσεται ἐπὶ τὴν ἐρήμωσιν.
Δαν. 9,27 (modern) Κατά μίαν εβδομάδα ετών ο Χριστός θα συνάψη και θα καταστήση ισχυράν και έγκυρον μίαν νέον διαθήκην. Κατά δε το μέσον της εβδομάδος αυτής, που θα προσφερθή η μεγάλη θυσία του λυτρωτού Χριστού, θα τεθή οριστικόν πλέον τέρμα εις τας παλαιάς θυσίας και σπονδάς. Εις δε τον ναόν μου και τον λαόν του Ισραήλ, θα εισέλθουν βδελυραί δυνάμεις καταστροφής και ερημώσεως. Τέρμα δε εις την καταστροφήν θα τεθή όταν συμπληρωθή ο ωρισμένος χρόνος.

in fact in vs 26, “Η πόλις της Ιερουσαλήμ και ο άγιος ναός θα καταστραφούν μαζή με τους ηγουμένους, τους άρχοντας της εποχής εκείνης” it refers SPECIFICALLY that Jerusalem and the Temple will be destroyed by the the leader (Archon) of THAT PARTICULAR TIME/Era/seson (i.e. the Roman Empire)! Praise God, this is an amazing revelation to me. thank you

Reply

David July 1, 2017 at 6:33 pm

So the leader, Archon, is pointing to the prince in Daniel 9:26?

It’s really interesting to see how the Greek Septuagint reads in that verse. It’s proclaiming that Messiah caused the desolation of the city and temple, via the Roman army.

And after the sixty-two weeks, the anointed one shall be destroyed, and there is no judgment in him: and he shall destroy the city and the sanctuary with the prince that is coming: they shall be cut off with a flood, and to the end of the war which is rapidly completed he shall appoint the city to desolations.”

And all of that matches up with Messiah’s Olivet Discourse, where He foretold the signs that would lead to the desolation of the temple, city and Jews; by the Roman army. http://theolivetdiscourse.com

the prince is the archon. the english translation says prince and in the greek lxx it says the leader that is coming translated to modern greek as archon. i actually found your study series searching if the tribulation started with the destruction of the temple. becuase i also believe that the olivet discourse was fullfilled in 70ad. if you have time david please contact me on email as there are a few things id like your insight on. thank you.

I have a question regarding Yashua’s earthly ministry which seems to be an important element to the fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel. What is the Scriptural proof that Yashua’s ministry was 3 1/2 years? I cant find any Scriptural basis for 3 1/2 years? It seems that if you do a chronological study you cannot get to 3 1/2 years. I know it’s something I’ve always been taught/told but I don’t want to just assume any longer that it’s accurate. So where did this idea originate since it seems to be widely accepted as factual?

Thank you
Ben

David July 21, 2017 at 5:04 pm

Ben, the foundation of that is based on Daniel 9:26-27, which proclaims that the covenant would be confirmed with the Jews for seven years; and that Messiah would be killed at the midpoint of the seven years.

From that we can deduce that Messiah and His disciples preached the Gospel to the Jews during the first 3.5 years, before Messiah was killed. And then the disciples preached to the Jews, that Messiah died as the Passover Lamb and rose again; for the remaining 3.5 years; so that the Gospel was preached to the Jews exclusively for seven years. Then after that it was also preached to the Gentile nations.

Messiah would have been 30 years old, which is the tradition age for someone to start teaching, in the fall of year 27 A.D. Messiah died in the Spring of 31 A.D., which is 3.5 years later; so we have a match.

When the Protestants of the Reformation said the Pope & Roman Church were AC they didn’t then say we’re all about to get raptured. They also didn’t say 7 years of tribulation aka Daniel’s 70th week is about to begin. They all knew Daniel’s 70th week was already fulfilled. Even Isaac Newton’s interpretation has it being fulfilled. They knew their Bible and they knew Bible history. Unfortunately, people today don’t know their Bible or Bible history or even Church history. They cling to the teachings of Cyrus Scofield yet disregard the teachings and words of Martin Luther, William Tyndale and other great reformers. Rome is laughing at all this confusion. So sad.

Thank you for your comment Rob! Yeah, sadly, the enemy has pushed aside the witness of the saints who have gone before us. A huge part of that has been through Dallas Theological Seminary, which has a direct connection to Scofield. Many of the popular Pastors graduated from DTS, so they teach the deceptions that originated with the Jesuits of Rome.

Thank you for that study. I’ve been watching your videos on YouTube for about 7-8 years so I’m familiar with some of that info.. Thank you for the time and effort you’ve put into those videos and studies. It has opened my eyes and allowed me to build on my Bible studies in so many ways. I’m now able to show others the truth and show them the errors in the futurist theory straight from the Bible. They are stumped and I can tell they’ve never seen or heard a different side than futurism.

It’s frustrating how futurism and deflection away from Rome has overcome today’s church, however it has to be thru the will of God that Rome has been allowed to survive and pull the wool over people’s eyes. I know of a pastor in MD who knows full well the secret rapture theory was an invention of Rome & the Jesuits, but with so many churches down the street promoting that theory I don’t think he knows how to go about teaching against it. Would cause a major battle in the community.

I cannot find anything good about Cyrus Scofield. Nothing! Amazing how his Bible has become so popular and people overlook or have no clue who he was. I think they’ve also tampered with Daniel 9:27. Older versions of the Bible say “Yet shall he confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in a half week he shall cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease:”

Notice by saying “and in A half week” introduces a new week outside of the one week. However, in today’s versions it reads, “in the midst of THE week”. Today’s version puts this half week inside of THE one week which plays to the futurist theory of a rebuilt temple and future antichrist breaking his peace treaty. Just by the use of “the” instead of “a” makes all the difference.

Thank you for sharing that insight Rob! Cyrus Scofield may have been a covert Jesuit, who was used to get their deceptions into American churches and seminaries. And then there was a direct link from him to Lewis Sperry Chafer, who founded Dallas Theological Seminary, where every student has to study his futuristic explanations; which originated from the Jesuits. http://70thweekofdaniel.com/how-the-leaven-of-the-70th-week-of-daniel-deceptions-spread/

Yeah, the wording of Daniel 9:27 makes a huge difference! The Scriptures Bible renders it as ““And he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. And in the middle of the week he shall put an end to slaughtering and meal offering.”

I recently received the answer to the question of the rapture timing and I received it directly from the Lord. When believers come together and they discuss, or argue the points of this doctrine, they tend to ignore the manifold wisdom of God. When Jesus was speaking to the disciples in Matthew 13 about why He spoke in Parables, He told them that a teacher in the Kingdom is like one who pulls old as well as new treasures out of the storehouse. He preferred to speak this way because He wished to impart wisdom into the hearts of the believers by making connections between the things they had been taught in the Old Testament with the things they were witnessing in that day, which we now know of as the New Testament. These connections are what I refer to as parable threads and you can find that when Jesus made a parable reference it always had its origins in the Old Testament. It was by making these connections that He was showing them the intent of the author, who is our Heavenly Father. What I mean to say is the same thing that 2 Peter 1:20 says which is to say that no scripture on its own is able to spell out the manifold wisdom of God. When you pull on one thread within the Bible, you will find it is connected to another, and another, until you have pulled and pulled and eventually unraveled the entire mystery of God. How can we read a verse and know how it relates to all the other verses unless we have an understanding of the overall message being spelled out by the Almighty? Jesus was making it plain as day when He drew our attention to these parables and explained what they were.

When a reader comes across the book of Revelation, it may appear that this is a uniquely different and brand new idea that stands apart from the rest of God’s Word and that is simply not so. The revelation given to John was the same revelation given to all of the Lord’s prophets, and not only the prophets, but also the psalmists, and not only the psalmists but it’s also patterned out in the historical accounts of key people whom God chose to use in the demonstration of His revelation.

The Tribulation is a period which has been referred to by God as the time of Jacob’s trouble, in order to understand Revelation we must understand the story of Jacob, who worked for seven years for the woman he loved, Rachel, whose hand in marriage was promised to Jacob by Laban. The Bible tells us that the time went by easily for him because he loved her so much. But then after the work was complete and the waiting was over, he was given a wedding and a wife who turned out to be Rachel’s sister Leah. Then Laban explained why he tricked Jacob and offered him Rachel as well, but only if he agreed to stay and work another seven years. Before he could do this thing he had to finish up the traditional bridal week with Leah first, and then he would receive Rachel. The Time of Jacob’s trouble is a reference to the fact that Christ originally came for His own people, Israel, but received a Gentile church before His bride of choice. God spoke often to the nation of Israel as if He were their husband:

Every year Israel would read the Song of Solomon out loud in the assembly to honor this special relationship they had with the God of Jacob.

Isaiah 54:6 [‘The Lord will call you back as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit- a wife who married young, only to be rejected,’ says your God. ‘For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back. In a surge of anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you,’ says the Lord your redeemer. To me this is like the days of Noah, when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth. So now I have sworn not to be angry with you, never to rebuke you again. Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken for my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the Lord, who has compassion on you.]

Jeremiah 3:14 [‘Return faithless people,’ declares the Lord, ‘for I am your husband. I will choose you’]

The book of Hosea was a love story between the Lord and Israel. He showed them kindness though they deserved the fate of an adulterous. In verse 3:5 he says, [They will come trembling to the Lord and to His blessings in the last days.]

Several hints were dropped by Jesus to tell us how he would fulfill this plan of God for Israel. He spoke of the bridegroom in the parables and He also spoke of the last days and mentioned that they would be like the days of Noah. We also see references in the book of Revelation, well into the wrath of God, that the mountains and hills will be flattened by a shaking like no one has ever seen. This means He will always be with them after He comes back to fulfill these prophecies but until then, He has turned His back on them. This does not mean that they are not His people or that they don’t carry the financial blessings of the Lord and such. What it does mean is that they won’t see their messiah until they can say, “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

When Jesus was rejected by Israel, He instead started the Church, also His betrothed, for which there are many references in the New Testament. The church now awaits the fulfillment of prophecy when their savior will come back for them and take them into the wedding supper of the Lamb where they, too, will be with Him forever more. Since the time of Jacob’s Trouble is a reference to these two brides and the last week of Daniel is a foretelling of that time, then we can see that the church is received before the seven year period and the nation of Israel is received after the seven year period.

The tribulation is also referred to by God as the travail of a woman in labor. In Matthew 24 Jesus is describing the tribulation and He mentions that when we see the signs of the end coming, we should know that it is the beginning of birth pains. Paul tells us in Romans 8 that we groan inwardly just as the whole of creation does in an eager anticipation for our adoption as sons and the redemption of our bodies. In Revelation we are told that the woman is about to give birth when the child is caught up and protected by the Lord. This symbolism is given in the Old Testament as well and it mysteriously spells out a birth which happens before the woman goes into labor: Isaiah 66:7 [Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son. Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children.] The body of Christ depicted as singular and as a product of Zion and the Lord. But Isaiah goes on to indicate that the Lord does not put the woman through labor for nothing, she still has to have a birth after the travail is over. The remnant of Israel!

Since we can see the pattern of an imminent pre-tribulation rapture in these parable threads, then there should be more connections that we can make in the Word to confirm that we’re on the right track. There are many, but for me the most convincing is the calendar of the Lord’s feasts.

He was the Lamb that taketh away the sins of the world during Passover,
He was the Bread of Life that was pierced, and broken during the feast of Unleavened Bread,
He was raised from the dead on the Day of First fruits as a wave offering before the Lord,
and the Holy Spirit was poured out on the Day of Pentacost.

Now, if the pattern holds, and with God it always does, then these are to follow:

The Feast of Trumpets where the arrival of a new year is anticipated by the blowing of trumpets with the final blast heard at dusk which is considered the twinkling of an eye.
The Day of Atonement where the High Priest makes atonement for the sins of Israel and the wrath of God is appeased.
The Feast of Tabernacles where the supplications of the faithful remnant of Israel ushers in the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

This order of remembrances places the rapture of the church before the tribulation and the second coming of Jesus after the tribulation.

I hope these words encourage you all for that is what we are commanded to do with the rapture testimony is to encourage one another.

Another indication of the rapture which is actually in the written understanding of the scripture is Daniel 12:2. Two groups of people are spoken about as being part of the resurrection, but by the wording of the verse we can clearly see that they do not make up the entirety of the population of the earth. The word, “many” is used to start this passage. What about those who are not a part of the many? How are they getting into heaven?

Reply

David September 13, 2017 at 5:03 pm

Daniel 12:2 is not about the end times. It describes the time of Jacob’s Trouble, which took place from 66-70 A.D.; when 1.1 million Jews died in and around the small city of Jerusalem from: infighting, famine, pestilence, suicide, crucifixion and by the Roman sword.

The Abomination of Desolation, the Roman army (Luke 20:20-21), surrounded Jerusalem in 66 A.D., they built ramps up the walls, and were ready to take the city; when for no reason, they left. The Early Church obviously saw this sign, and they took the opportunity to escape to the mountains of Pella. The Jews, who did not know the sign, were emboldened, and they stayed.

Then three division of the Roman army surrounded the city, and camped out waiting their orders, as Emperor Nero had died. In 70 A.D., 1,290 days after the first division of the Roman army surrounded the city (the abomination of desolation), the Romans flooded the city, killing hundreds of thousands of Jews by the sword, and taking some captive. The siege lasted for 45 days, when it ended after the last stronghold of Jews, surrendered. 1,290 + 45 = the 1,335 days.

Thank you for your comment JonAlan! I respectfully disagree with your explanation, as it includes a supposed futuristic 70th week of Daniel.

The concept of a futuristic 70th week of Daniel is a deception from the Jesuits of Rome, who created it to deflect blame away from the Popes, as the Protestant Reformers had rightly identified them as the Son of Perdition and the antichrist beast.

There is no future 7-year tribulation period, as the 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled on time, after the 69th week;

when Messiah and His disciples confirmed with the Jews that He is the promised Messiah who ratified the everlasting covenant with His blood, as the Passover Lamb.

The seven years ended after the Jewish leaders stoned Stephen to death, marking their final rejection of their promised Messiah. Then the book of Acts clearly shows a dramatic shift, as the Gospel was also preached to the Gentile nations.

Here is a study series that proves it out: http://70thweekofdaniel.com

As for Messiah’s Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24, the main topic was the desolation of the temple, which happened in 70 A.D. Messiah clearly said that all of the things that He just described would take place in that generation of Jews.

And indeed, there was famine, pestilence, rumors of wars, etc.

The disciples were persecuted, just as He said.

The temple was desolated, just as He said. The Sun, moon and stars, were diminished; as He was pointing to the end of the Jewish leadership system: the High Priest was the sun, the Sandhedrin the moon, and the priests the stars. Messiah came in power and glory, when He caused the people of the prince (Daniel 9), the Roman army, to desolate Jerusalem and the temple.

And there was great tribulation, as 1.1 million Jews died in and around the small city of Jerusalem; from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, crucifixion and by the Roman sword.

This study series explains the fulfillment of Messiah’s Olivet Discourse, which was about the Jewish nation being desolated in the 1st century; and it is not about the end times.

Daniel 9:24 tells us that when the weeks are completed there will be no more transgressions and no more sins. John 1:8 says that if we consider ourselves to be without sin we deceive ourselves so the end of sin has not yet come. After all, this is what the righteous are all desperately longing for and we will all know when it has come.

In Matthew 24 The disciples asked Jesus, “what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” In His answer to them He said that when they see the abomination of desolation spoken about by the prophet Daniel it would mean that a time of great tribulation has come. This tribulation will be greater than any other and there never will be another like it. He goes on to tell us that immediately after the tribulation there will be amazing signs in heaven and the appearing of the Son of Man to gather His elect from the earth.

The timing of the cutting off of the Messiah was given as 62 weeks after the command to rebuild the temple. The Jews have a double meaning for the word week. One of those meanings refers to the week of years also known as a Shemitah. Every week of years was constantly being counted and they would have known that this was the meaning once they saw that 62 weeks of days had gone by and nothing happening with Daniel’s prophecy. After more than 400 years they saw their Messiah and He was cut off but not for Himself.

Many have tried to calculate when the mystery week of prophecy would take place and the clues given by Jesus about it being at His second coming and also the time of the end where things will be at their worst in all of the ages of the world make it pretty clear that they haven’t happened yet.

We can estimate that we are getting very close to that time, however. Israel is now planning the construction of the third temple, for which, they have all the furniture and artifacts crafted and are training a team of priests to worship in right now.

There is a severe excitation in the Middle East to bring about an Islamic caliphate with their own prophecies indicating a return of the Mahdi who will supposedly have Christ with him who will execute the infidels and help destroy the little and big Satan.

We also see within the United States a great falling away and a taking up of idols in very public places like the Empire State Building and Washington DC.

And we see a sign in the sky this month of a woman with 12 stars upon her head, clothed with the sun and the moon at her feet with a planet at her center remaining in retrograde for the total length of a pregnancy which comes to a final exit from the middle section of Virgo at the day of the Feast of Trumpets which is the day associated with the rapture of the Body of Christ.

Yes, I think it will be VERY SOON!

Revelation 12 describes the birth of the Early Church, which was through much pain and suffering; as Satan used the Roman Emperors to try to wipe out the Early Church, killing 10 million saints.

Satan is the dragon, the serpent of old. And the Romans used a dragon on their banners.

Ultimately the saints prevailed, by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of their testimony. And the Roman Empire declined due to civil wars, famine and pestilence; and fell when armies attacked it, and removed the last Western Roman Emperor from power in 476 A.D.

Daniel 9:24 is not saying that all transgression would end, by the time that the 70 weeks were fulfilled. It is pointing to the Jews, who worst transgression was delivering their promised Messiah up to be killed. And Messiah’s blood sacrifice as the Passover Lamb ended the need for temple sacrifices (oblations), which was validated when the Father tore the temple curtain in two.

The Jews and Messiah fulfilled all that was described in Daniel 9:24. Here is the study that proves it out: http://70thweekofdaniel.com/messiah-fulfilled-the-purposes-of-daniel-924-during-the-70th-week-of-daniel/

The text clearly says that Messiah would appear after the 62 weeks, which was after the 7 weeks; so it is saying that Messiah would appear after the 69th week; meaning, in the 70th week.

The text clearly says that Messiah would be ‘cut off’, killed, in the middle of the last week, in the middle of the 70th week. And that His sacrifice would end the need for temple sacrifices, as His blood sacrifice as the Passover Lamb paid the price for all transgressions.

Messiah ratified the everlasting covenant as the Passover Lamb. It is not speaking about an antichrist peace agreement in a futuristic end-times 7-year tribulation period. http://70thweekofdaniel.com/the-covenant-of-the-70th-week-of-daniel/

One cannot insert a 2,000 year time gap in the middle of the 69th and 70th week, as the text does not define a time gap. And if if 70 week prophecy is not fulfilled in 70 consecutive weeks, then it is invalid.

As for the supposed Revelation 12 sign on 09-23-17, that is based on false premises.

The 12 stars are ALWAYS above Virgo’s head, in the 9 stars of Leo and the 3 stars of the constellation Coma Berenices, which means ‘diadem’, the crown. Spica does not mark Virgo’s left hip, it marks the wheat in her left hand, so Jupiter NEVER enters her body, but only passes through her left arm. This supposed fulfillment of Revelation 12 is a grand deception from the enemy!

Actually, history does not bear out your testimony. The sacrifices continued for many years after the death and resurrection of Christ. When believers set out to prove a doctrine, it should always be as those who are teachable. Unfortunately, there have been many who have taken up sides on the end times prophecies within scripture. Instead of continuing this debate which is unedifying to the Body of Christ, I would like to offer a spiritual peace offering as a point of view for the subject.

There is a great hope that exists within the world today. Though society is decaying around us a chosen and transformed people are following marching orders from a heavenly commander who has promised them something. An end to the struggle against sin and against a common enemy, who is Satan. We’re driven by a glorious enthusiasm for a future that even angels have tried to look into but have failed. I submit that the future arrival of the Lord and the subsequent reshaping of the planet is the main focus and purpose behind this faith. Without it, this would all be meaningless. There is no greater thing for me than the transformative love that pours out from the heart of He who is shining like a morning star into our spirit and giving us gladness to replace our sorrows. I will worship my King, my friend, my comforter and my hero; for He is the Lord that remembers! He has not forgotten His promises and very soon He will swiftly bring them to fruition. There is a resurrection of the dead and it is my exceedingly great joy to live in a time and among a generation of people that may not taste of death and, therefore, be instantly caught up to be with Him in glory. For we have been fixed within Christ as members of His heavenly body which is the New Jerusalem which will come down from heaven. As this day approaches, we who have been filled with the Holy Spirit are receiving dreams, visions and great revelations. These impartations are in agreement with the others and they are accelerating like a stop watch that is counting down to midnight. They all share the theme of the Bridegroom coming to call us away to hide us in His house that He has prepared for us and some of the revelations have revealed what will be happening during the King’s reign here on earth. The Spirit who says all these things to us is the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead and testifies with us that we are His children and, now, enables us to know the mind and heart of Abba; Father. There is no counterfeit available in this world or the next for the working of His Spirit, though many have doubted because of the fear that there may be.

Jonathan, Messiah’s death ended THE NEED for additional sacrifices, as He ratified the everlasting covenant with His blood as the Passover Lamb; which paid the price for all sins. And we know that the Father confirmed this when the temple curtain was torn in two.

The Jewish High Priest and leaders did not accept the promised Messiah, so they continued making sacrifices.

The sacrifices were stopped when the temple was destroyed and the Jewish leadership system diminished, in 70 A.D.; which is the proper context of the Olivet Discourse, Daniel 9 and Daniel 12.

Yes, but to say that this was the 70th week of Daniel leaves much of the scriptures out. Not to mention that it would mean that a majority of the church has been in error for centuries; God manages His people better than that. Those that are led by the Spirit have always been present among us to guide us into all truths.

To say that a 70 week prophecy was not fulfilled in 70 consecutive weeks is illogical!

All that was defined to happen in the 70 weeks, was fulfilled. And the result of the Jews rejecting their promised Messiah and delivering Him up to be killed, was played out within that generation of Jews; just like Messiah said, as recorded in Matthew 23 and 24.

The majority of the saints knew the truth for many hundreds of years. It’s only during the last few centuries that the futuristic deceptions have taken hold in the church.

The Jews having rejected the Messiah is exactly the reason why the prophecy was interrupted. When God prophecies, through Jonah, that Nineva would be destroyed, they repented and the prophecy was interrupted. It’s not that strange to say that God does this. I’m a little Leary about reading material that steps outside if the instructions given me directly by God. I can’t help but wonder, though; do you believe in a second coming of Christ?

Spica does not mark Virgo’s left hip, it marks the wheat in her left hand, so Jupiter NEVER enters her body, but only passes through her left arm. Be careful, as this supposed sign may be a setup from the enemy, to cause Christians to be disappointed if/when Messiah doesn’t return. http://revelationtimelinedecoded.com/revelation12sign

Revelation 12 describes the birth of the Early Church, which was through much pain and suffering; as Satan used the Roman Emperors to try to wipe out the Early Church, killing 10 million saints. Ultimately the saints prevailed, by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of their testimony. And the Roman Empire declined due to civil wars, famine and pestilence; and fell when armies attacked it, and removed the last Western Roman Emperor from power in 476 A.D. http://revelationtimelinedecoded.com/revelation-12-the-pagan-roman-empire-beast/

Luke, we can prove out that the 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled from 27-34 A.D. Daniel 9:27 is talking about Messiah. Messiah’s ministry took place from 27-31 A.D. It states that He shall cause the sacrifices to stop. The text says that this would take place in the middle of the 70th week of Daniel. And we know that the Father confirmed this when the temple curtain was torn in two.

The events that are described in Daniel 12 can be proven to have been fulfilled from 66-70 A.D. The abomination of desolation took place in 66 A.D. The temple sacrifices were stopped permanently in 70 A.D.

I really don’t know how to explain it any better than that.

If you have questions, just comment on the appropriate study, and I’m happy to answer.

Keep learning and growing in The Way!

I’m not sure what I’ve written to indicate that Daniel 9 and Daniel 12 are the same vision, but they are related.

Daniel 9 foretold that the promised Messiah would appear in the 70th week, and that He would be killed 1/2 way through the 7 years. The punishment for the Jews delivering Him up to be crucified was that the ‘people of the prince’, the Roman army of Prince Titus, would cause the desolation of the temple and city and Jews.

In the Olivet Discourse Messiah described the sign of the Abomination of Desolation, which was fulfilled in 66 A.D., when the first division of the Roman army surrounded Jerusalem.

Daniel 12 foretold that there would be 1,290 days between the Abomination of Desolation, and the army flooding into the city. The Romans flooded the city in 70 A.D., 1290 days after the sign.

The Roman siege lasted for 45 days, fulfilling the 1,335 days of Daniel 12. Here is the study that proves it out. http://theolivetdiscourse.com/daniel-12-is-not-about-an-end-times-antichrist/

Read Acts and you see that on the day of Pentecost, Jews from all over the world had gathered in Jerusalem, and when they heard the gospel in their language, 3,000 Jews believed in Messiah that day. And no doubt they returned home and preached to other Jews.

Acts 2:41 “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls”.

The disciples kept preaching to the Jews and Acts 4:4 reports, “Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.”

Acts 5:14 “And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.”

Acts 5:42 “And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.”

Acts 6:7 “And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.”

So we can clearly see that Jews did accept Messiah, and that the foundation of the church was built on these believing Jews.

The hard-hearted Pharisees, who Messiah said were a generation of vipers, who were of Satan; yes, they rejected Messiah and delivered Him up to be killed. If all Jews had accepted Him, He would not have been delivered up to be killed.

So your point has no merit.

Do I believe in a second coming of Messiah? Absolutely, and we are in the middle of the 6th bowl, in which Messiah proclaimed that He is coming as a thief in the night. He will be as a thief to those who don’t know prophecy fulfillment.

Here is a Revelation fulfillment summary study, which shows how much has already been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years (most of it); where we are at now on the fulfillment timeline (in the 6th bowl); and what will happen next as we await Messiah’s return. http://revelationtimelinedecoded.com/revelation-fulfillment-timeline-summary/

I pray that you consider that I am in your path for a reason. I don’t know all prophecy fulfillment, but I know a lot. You’ve been given links to the studies. I pray that you read them and consider the explanations, for they are not just my explanations, for many saints taught the same things during the 16th-20th centuries, before the futuristic deception crept into the church.
