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.

Thank you so much brother. God bless you. I was at the Vatican in ’77, Never further from presence of God. Come out of her my people. False teachers are bringing Protestants back! The Jesuits and their minions! Satanic to the core pure blasphemy.


David April 2, 2019 at 5:55 pm

Thank you for your comment George! Yeah, I bet the Vatican is a dark place to visit. 1.3 billion Catholics are deceived by their false salvation message, and into believing that Mary is the intercessor to the Father. And as you noted, they’re drawing the Protestants back, setting them up to join with them in their One World Government.

What irony! People call themselves Protestants, but they don’t protest anymore because they don’t even know that the office of the papacy is the antichrist of Revelation. Ugh!

Liked your discussion! It closely agrees with my 11 page commentary on the Olivet Discourse, which I have been trying to get pastors and others to read. NO Luck!!
The paper is in pdf file format and I don’t know how to put it in your blog. If you give me an email address I will sent a digital attachment to you.
It basically shows that Jesus is CONTRASTING the temple destruction (topic of Question #! for which the disciples get a warning) with His second coming comments , beginning verse 30, in which there is no advance warning (topic of Question #2).
The mindset of the Jewish disciples was to make these events to occur at the same time. Jesus is saying differently. He then switches back to 70 AD comments.

Thank you for your comment Wayne. What a blessing that you understand the 70th week of Daniel and the Olivet Discourse!

Mark April 30, 2019 at 2:08 am

Hi David,

I think your commentary is outstanding but the hang up I have with the 70th week is that in verse 26 it says that Messiah will be cut off. I am having difficulty rectifying that it says he’s cut off in the 69th week but isn’t crusified and making a new covenant until the 70th week. Can you elaborate please?


David April 30, 2019 at 2:19 am

Hi Mark 🙂 Daniel 9:25 defines a 7-week period, in which the city and temple were rebuilt; and a 62-week period.

So when Daniel 9:26 says that AFTER the 62 week period, Messiah will be cut off; it’s based on the fact that the 62-week period followed the 7- week period.

It’s saying that Messiah would be cut off AFTER the 69-week period, meaning in the 70th week.

Daniel 9:27 gives more information, as says that the sacrifice and oblation would cease halfway through the 70th week. The need for temple sacrifices ended when Messiah died as the Passover Lamb. That again confirms that Messiah died in the 70th week.

I hope that helps!

Mark 1:15 Jesus after his baptism in the Jordan said the time was fulfilled and immediately began his ministry…thus acknowledging the fulfillment of the 70 weeks prophecy.


David June 23, 2019 at 12:23 pm

Thank you for your comment Rudy. Messiah confirmed that He was the promised Messiah when He read the passage from Isaiah at the beginning of His ministry, at the beginning of the 70th week of Daniel.

“So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.” Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” Luke 4:16-21

So good to hear David. I have been praying for Messiah,s Messenger,s. Studying . Health slowly returning. Brother the only Truth I’m finding is in Messiah. We are Praying ceaselessly. It was and is still a most wonderful to have found Yahuah,s Truth. Just what hasn’t been a lie. Churches are social clubs with tradition becoming their gospel. Lent. Advent. Invent! Prayerfully believing and sometimes patient. Praise Yahusha. Baruch Have Ba Shem Yahuah Brother David. Our 3rd child to be born August. Jonah Immanuel. 2nd Tim 1 vs 7. Will continue following Messiah and seeking fellow Watchman. Thank You. Peter


David May 1, 2019 at 12:54 pm

Thank you for your comment Peter! I love how the 70th week of Daniel points to the exact time that Yahusha would appear. That’s great that your health is returning! Keep up the prayers, for that is how the battle is won! That’s exciting about Jonah Immanuel! That’s a great name! Keep learning and growing in The Way! David

It never made sense to me the 70th week being cast far into the future. Warning bells went off at one point but I wasn’t able to develop an alternative on my own. Thank you for helping confirm this. Of course our Lord culminated and sealed the covenant by giving the Comforter to those who believe during His ministry.
The reformers were also of the mystery schools as were the Jesuits. never forget the setup of opposing factions to maintain the confusion. The remnant of individuals seeking truth and never assuming to have obtained the truth outside of the anointing spoken of by John, are the only ones who are in the way. The false teachers have always run the churches to a great degree. The influence of Alexandria was huge in the east and the Jewish subterfuge in the Roman church was there at the beginning as well. Both sides corrupted early on.
Nevetheless, the Lord triumphs and delivers us out of them all.


David August 1, 2019 at 12:12 pm

Hi James 🙂 Yeah, a futuristic 70th week of Daniel doesn’t make sense, when we can see how it was fulfilled by Messiah.

As for the Reformers, they fulfilled Bible prophecy in getting the Little Book of Revelation 10 printed; in measuring the temple in Revelation 11 to see that what the antichrist beast Popes taught is contrary to Scripture; and in testifying against the antichrist beast Popes as the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11.


JT August 2, 2019 at 5:41 pm

Not to be disrespectful, but this does not fit with Matthew 24 time table unless you are saying that the 70 weeks complete and are disconnected from the end times altogether.
The abomination of desolation occurs at the time when time is cut short. How in 70 AD was time cut short to save from the destruction of all flesh.

I’m trying to be good Berean. He who makes desolate is Jesus? Dan 9:27


David August 2, 2019 at 6:05 pm

JT, yes, I’m saying that the 70 weeks of Daniel prophecy pointed to Messiah’s first advent, and not to the end times. The prophecy proclaims that Messiah would be ‘cut off’ meaning killed, and that His death would end the need for temple sacrifices. That’s exactly what happened when Messiah ratified the ‘everlasting covenant’ with His blood as the Passover Lamb.

The prophecy says that the punishment for the Jewish leaders delivering Him up to be killed, is that the temple and city would be desolated by the ‘people of the prince’ meaning the Roman army.

Messiah affirmed this narrative in His Olivet Discourse, Matthew 24, telling His disciples what they would see before the desolation of the temple and Jerusalem. All of those things took place in the first century. The Roman army desolated the temple and city in 70 A.D.; in that generation of Jews just likely proclaimed.

Messiah coming in the clouds of heaven is not pointing to His return, but His commanding the Roman army to desolate the city, temple and the wicked Jews; who rejected Him and delivered Him up to be killed.

The abomination of desolation happened when the first division of the Roman army appeared in 66 A.D., and surrounded the Holy city, where they should not be. They were ready to take the city captive, when for no reason, they left. The saints obviously say this sign, and they took opportunity to flee to the mountains as Messiah had told them. The Jews stayed, and three divisions of the Roman army surrounded Jerusalem; and camped out there, waiting for orders from Rome, as Emperor Nero had died. The result is that 1.1 million Jews died in and around Jerusalem; from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, crucifixion and by the Roman sword.

Here’s a link to my Olivet Discourse study series which proves it out.

So we have a match between the 70 weeks of Daniel, and Messiah’s Olivet Discourse; both of which were fulfilled in the first century; as they were about Messiah’s first advent and the punishment of the Jewish nation for having Him killed.

Contact me anytime with questions or insight about the studies.
