This 70th week of Daniel Bible study page shares my story and the need to expose the deception about the 70 weeks of Daniel prophecy.
Much of the information on this website has been taught for 1,800 years by the great theologians, and it’s only been during the last few centuries that Messiah’s Church has lost the truth about prophecy fulfillment.
In 2 Timothy 4:3-4 Paul warned us, “For there shall be a time when they shall not bear sound teaching, but according to their own desires, they shall heap up for themselves teachers tickling the ear, and they shall indeed turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to myths.”
Up until a few years ago, I simply believed what my Pastors had taught me about the end times.
What they taught lined up with what my John MacArthur Study Bible says, which lined up with what I hear popular Pastors like David Jeremiah and Chuck Swindoll teach. They’ve been to seminary, so surely they knew the proper explanations to prophecy.
There was no reason to doubt them… Until the Holy Spirit started me on a journey that revealed how the Bible explains prophecy fulfillment, which is contrary to many of the teachings from Pastors today.
The Spirit put on my heart to look to theologians who had not been corrupted by all of the deceptions, which have really taken hold during the last century.
The best tool that the Spirit put in my path is SwordSearcher Bible software, as it gives me easy access to Bible commentaries from the top Bible scholars of the 1700 and 1800’s, such as:
- Albert Barnes’ Notes on the New and Old Testaments.
- John Calvin’s Commentaries.
- Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible.
- Commentary from the 1599 edition of the Geneva Bible.
- John Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible.
- Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible.
- Matthew Henry’s Whole Bible Commentary.
- Matthew Poole’s Commentary on the Holy Bible.
- John Wesley’s Bible Notes.
I am blessed to stand on the shoulder of these great theologians, who have taught me so much about Scripture.
You can find some of their commentaries at www.studylight.org/com/ but SwordSearcher lets you quickly read through all of the commentaries about a particular passage. And it gives you the Strong’s word listing, a Bible dictionary and much more.
Other people who the Spirit has placed in my life during the past few years are:
Henry Grattan Guinness, who wrote Romanism and the Reformation: From the Standpoint of Prophecy which gives the explanation for the prophecies in Daniel, in 2 Thessalonians 2, in John epistles and Revelation. It’s an excellent study that exposes The Holy Roman Empire and it’s role in end-times Bible prophecy. Click here to read it online.
Ralph Woodrow’s book Great Prophecies Of The Bible covers the second coming of Christ, Matthew 24, the 70 weeks of Daniel and the antichrist. Highly recommended reading!
Pastor Samuel Pestes, who wrote “The Stonecutter’s Bride“, “Ancient Nation’s Rise To Strike Again“, and “Abraham’s Message To The 21st Century“; Pastor Sam has had a great impact on my beliefs about the 70 Weeks of Daniel prophecy, and Messiah’s New Covenant as the fulfillment of the Everlasting Covenant that God made to Abraham.
Pastor Steve Wohlberg. Steve is a Seventh Day Adventist and though I don’t agree with some SDA beliefs, his teachings on End Times Delusions about the rapture, tribulation, antichrist and Israel, are Biblically sound.
Phillip Mauro’s study “The Seventy Weeks and the Great Tribulation” taught me so much about the fulfillment of the 70 Weeks of Daniel prophecy, the prophecy in Daniel 11 and 12, and Messiah’s Olivet Discourse.
I’ve spent many hundreds of hours reading through many books and commentaries, listening to many audios, and watching many videos.
Some Bible commentaries, such as from John Gill, are extremely detailed and long. Most people are too busy to read these books and watch the videos, so the Spirit uses me to make the explanations more concise and easy to read.
So who am I and what gives me the authority to teach these things?
I am not a Preterist, which is someone who believes that all prophecy was fulfilled during the 1st century.
I believe that the prophecies of Daniel 9, Daniel 12, Matthew 24, and others which relate to the Jews of Messiah’s day; were fulfilled in the first century, as those prophecies were about them.
I am a Historicist, like most every believer before the 19th century, believes that all of Revelation has been in the process of being fulfilled since it was written and won’t be completed until Messiah returns.
I am not Seventh Day Adventist, though I have learned from some SDA teachers who diligently study prophecy. Sadly most Protestant Pastors teach the Futuristic view of prophecy, which is a deception from the enemy.
I was blessed to grow up in a Christian family and attended Baptist Churches during the early part of my life. I was blessed by the verse-by-verse studies at several Calvary Chapel Churches. Sadly, most churches are daughters of the Roman harlot, and much of their teaching is contrary to scripture; so I am not longer a part of a formal church. I don’t even call myself a Christian anymore.
I have not been to seminary or a Bible school. I am simply a child of the Most High, who has the Scriptures as my guide and the Spirit of Elohim as my teacher. I have committed my life to learning and teaching Elohim’s truth about prophecy, and I work full-time in this ministry.
I believe that the Spirit shows me many insights because I hunger to know truth, so that our Father is glorified and the enemy is defeated.
Proverbs 2:1-5 says, “My son, if you accept my words, And treasure up my commands with you, So that you make your ear attend to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding; For if you cry for discernment, Lift up your voice for understanding, If you seek her as silver, And search for her as hidden treasures, Then you would understand the fear of יהוה YaHUaH, And find the knowledge of Elohim.”
In Revelation 3:19-21, Messiah chastises the end-times church, proclaiming that they’re lukewarm, wretched, miserable, naked, poor, and blind. Then He gives us the promise:
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
The word ‘overcomes’ in Greek is nikao. It means to conquer, to overcome, to prevail, to get the victory.
Ever since I began my studies of Revelation, and read that passage, I’ve felt that the name Nikao defined my ministry, for my calling is to teach the fulfillment of prophecy, and to expose the deceptions of the enemy. That is how we conquer the enemy and get the victory!
So when I created a Facebook profile for ministry, I used the name Nikao, because I don’t make Facebook about me. I don’t post selfies, I don’t make posts about my life. I focus on overcoming the enemy, by teaching prophecy fulfillment. When I started posting YouTube videos, I used that name.
It’s the name that I resonate with more than my given name, especially since I don’t have children, so my real name won’t be passed on. But I don’t want to mislead anyone about who I am. I hope that my work brings honor to my father and mother, who blessed me so much by teaching me about our beloved Messiah.
Prophecy fulfillment is fairly straight-forward and easy to understand, but it is all of the deceptions that the enemy has created that make it difficult to see the truth.
My friend, I encourage you to be a Berean and search these things out, don’t take my word for it, don’t seek to defend a position, just seek the truth.
Because until the Church understands the grand deception that has blinded her, she is unable to fight to overcome the enemy in the power of the Word.
My heart breaks for people as they have been so deceived, and have no clue about how the future is going to play out, so they are like the foolish virgins who are unprepared for Messiah’s return.
My tears are shed for Pastors, who are unknowingly teaching the prophecy concepts of the Antichrist, for they will be held accountable for misleading their flocks.
I pray to our Heavenly Father in the power of Messiah’s name that He will give you eye salve to see the truth.
In His love,
David Nikao Wilcoxson
