The 70th Week Of Daniel 9 Decoded book

The enemy has created many prophecy fulfillment deceptions to mislead the saints, so that they’re not prepared for how the end-times with play out.

The 70th week of Daniel 9 points to Messiah coming to confirm the everlasting covenant with His blood as the Passover Lamb, which atones for our sins. HalleluYah!

You need to know the fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9 in order to understand Messiah’s apocalyptic vision in Revelation.

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.

  1. how can anyone confirm a covenant for a duration of one week but be killed halfway thru? doesn’t that mean he only confirmed the covenant for only 3.5 days? and if others continue to confirm a covenant on his behalf than it is not “him” doing it anymore. Dan 9:24 says that the 70 weeks will make an end of sin and bring in everlasting righteousness; we certainly don’t have any of those. Dan 9:26 says that the Messiah will be cut off after the 62 week phase not in the middle of the 70th week. your interpretation is incredibly flawed.

    • I understand what you’re saying. Messiah said “He that receiveth you receiveth me,” thus we can see that through the disciples, Messiah was still confirming that He’s the promised Messiah who came to ratify the everlasting covenant with His blood as the Passover Lamb?

      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.

      “on the morrow John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, `Lo, the Lamb of God, who is taking away the sin of the world” John 1:29

      “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

      No man could ever bring in everlasting righteousness, so this can’t apply to the Jews, only to our Savior.

      Everlasting righteousness was what our Messiah manifested in His sinless life, and by His life, death, and resurrection, He has made everlasting righteousness available to all who accept it by faith.

      “But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe.” Romans 3:21-22

      “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God–and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.” 1 Corinthians 1:30

      “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21

      “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.” Hebrews 8:12

      “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness–by whose stripes you were healed.” 1 Peter 2:24

      Is there any doubt that He ushered in everlasting righteousness?

      It’s obvious that the seven week period starts the prophecy, which is followed by the 62-week period. When you add them up, that’s 69 weeks.

      The text says that Messiah would appear after the 62-week period, so that means that He had to appear after 69 week, meaning in the 70th week.

      Your explanations are incredibly flawed.

      • The description of the 70 weeks on this page is correct. The Jewish nation, the descendants of Abraham, were set aside as God’s chosen people to share the gospel of a coming Messiah with the world. The gospel is contained and explained in the sanctuary system that God set up from the foundation of the world when sacrifices were offered in order to clothe Adam and Eve, symbolizing the death of the Messiah. Jesus is the lamb slain from the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8).

        The symbolism was expanded upon at Mount Sinai starting in Exodus 25. Every aspect of the sanctuary system describes some aspect of what the Messiah would do, including His death on the cross and His work in the heavenly sanctuary that both Moses and John were shown in vision, and where Messiah sat down when He ascended on high (Hebrews 8:1).

        So God chose Abraham’s descendants to share the gospel with the world. He made good on His promise that the Messiah would come through Abraham’s seed, as Jesus did (Luke 3:23-38), but the Jews as a nation were not obedient to God and wondered after other gods. Again and again, they chose their own way, even after God allowed them to go into captivity in Babylon. Finally, through Daniel, God’s prophet, God gave them a probationary period in which to decide whether or not they would serve and follow and obey Him. “70 weeks are determined,” or ‘divided from’ or ‘set aside from’ the larger prophecy contained in the previous chapter, “to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” (Daniel 9:24)

        The Jewish nation had to decide whether or not they would allow God to work in their hearts to make them righteous, or else to keep living for self. That time period, 490 years, was confirmed to the Jewish nation in its entirety. Jesus made reference to it when Peter asked, “Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.” (Matthew 18:21-22)

        Starting 457 B.C. (Ezra 7:7), seven weeks (John 2:20) were spent rebuilding Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity. Sixty-two more weeks until Messiah was anointed at His baptism and became our sin bearer, leaving one final week of covenant for the Jewish nation to turn their lives over to God and allow Him to write His law in their hearts (Jeremiah 31:33). After Jesus’ death, God, through the apostles, plead with Israel for three-and-a-half more years until the stoning of Stephen which “[sealed] up the [prophet]” (Daniel 9:24), completing the final week and therefore the 70 weeks. In Steven’s final words before his stoning, which make up Acts 7, God pronounced His sentence against Israel and turned to the gentiles with the gospel, adopting Christians as God’s chosen people to share the gospel with the world (Acts 13:46; Galatians 3:28-29). Individually, Jews and non-Jews can claim this adoption by accepting Christ as their substitute.

        Regarding the conditions set for the Jewish nation in Daniel 9:24, God would not set a condition that was impossible. The same promises that God made ancient Israel apply to His followers today. These promises have the power to change even our nature:

        “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature.” (2 Peter 1:4). In other words, God can change us and make us righteous.

        “He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.” (2 John 6)

        “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.” (Titus 2:11-14)

        “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.” (Revelation 3:21).

  2. I wonder if the Jesuits used pandemics in the past. I would imagine they used them to conquer the Americas, and also in Europe with the Black Plague. This is old hat for them.

    • Hey Steve, yeah who knows? What’s interesting is that when different wavelengths (frequencies) have been introduced, it has caused new waves of sickness. The evil ones give the sickness a name, as if it’s viral, in order to hide the real culprit.

      Radio waves were introduced > The Spanish Flu

      Radar waves were introduced > The Hong Kong Flu

      3G wavelengths came out in 2003, same as SARS.

      4G wavelengths came out in 2009, same as H1N1.

      5G wavelengths came out in 2019, same as COVID19.

      Humans are electrical beings, which interact with the frequencies that our Creator put in the universe. But when a new, specifically chosen frequency is introduced, people die.

      5G wavelengths can cause problems with the uptake of oxygen in the blood, which causes oxygen deprivation, which leads to organ failure and death.

      5G wavelengths can cause cellular poisoning, and the body responds by purging the toxins out of the cells, which then overwhelms the body and causes a viral reaction, with flu-like symptoms, organ failure, and death.

      These wavelengths were chosen on purpose, for the evil ones to reduce the population, and be able to blame the virus as the scapegoat.

      Here’s an article I wrote about the COVID-19 agenda.

      Keep learning and growing in The Way!

    • What took place in the 70th week of Daniel was the pinnacle of human history, for in it our Messiah died for our sins. 🙂

  3. I would like to add something to help prove the 69 weeks of “unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks”.

    Messiah means “anointed one”, Jesus was Anointed by the Holy Spirit on A.D.27 Exactly 483 years from B.C.457. Well Luke 3:5 records this “in the 15th year of the Roman emperor Tiberius”

    The reign of Tiberius is dated (not from his sole reign at the death of Augustus) but from the beginning of his joint reign (two years prior to his death in A.D. 12) when Tiberius was given legal equality with Augustus. The 15th year of Tiberius would then correspond to A.D. 27.

  4. The “two” witnesses are “killed” by the beast from the abyss (the United Nations world government) after 3.5 years (Rev. 11:7). Then they are revived after 3.5 “days” (3.5 years/half of the “week”) (Rev. 11:11). That’s seven years total. The number two in Scripture symbolizes that a message is true. The “two” witnesses are an “anointed one” with an important and verifiable message who will be cut off at the half of the “week” by what some refer to as an “antichrist” (a communist-style world government). The seventieth week has a modern-day parallel, an antitype. At the same time that the two witnesses are killed the disgusting thing that causes desolation (to God’s people) is set up, as described at Daniel 9:27b, Matthew 24:15, and Revelation 13:5-7 etc. It seems that the coronavirus is the means that the beast from the abyss will rise to power (Anglo-America, the ascendant head of the seven-headed wild beast is now experiencing a death-stroke that it will recover from and then give authority to the United Nations, the “image of the beast”).

    • You know the futuristic explanation well! But it’s a deception from the enemy. There is no futuristic 70th week of Daniel. The antichrist Popes reigned in power for 1,260 years, from 538-1798 A.D. The Two Witnesses are the Scriptures and the Saints, both of which testify against the Popes and expose them as the son of perdition and the antichrist beast, who leads the harlot church of Rome.

      I pray that you read through the prophecy fulfillment explanations, because what you’re believing is a deception from the enemy.

      • The “two” witnesses are not the Scriptures and the saints as it is impossible for those things to “prophesy in sackcloth” or be “killed” and revived. The two witnesses do a work like that of Moses and Elijah (deliverance and purifying – vs 5,6). They also do a work like Joshua and Zerubbabel (healing and rebuilding – v4). The healing and rebuilding work will take place after God’s people are desolated for 3.5 years. I know what i am talking about because i AM that anointed one who is currently prophesying in sackcloth against God’s people, since i know what is about to come upon them during the second half of the week when the holy city is trampled underfoot (Rev. 11:2).

        The harlot is the ancient “mystery” schools who have dominated 6 world empires and continue to dominate the 7th (Anglo-America) (Rev. 17:9). She rides the scarlet-cloloured image of the beast (United Nations) because she set it up and she will soon gain full control of it as a tyrannical world government, “at the half of the week” when it causes “sacrifice and gift offering to cease.” Freemasonry is the world’s oldest and most powerful secret (“mystery”) religion. Masons literally built seven world empires. They openly boast of this in their books, of which i have many. Yes, there will be a one world religion under them because THEY are the whore of Babylon. Yes, all other religion will be outlawed. All of it!

        • As you said, you know the futuristic explanation well! Messiah said that the Scriptures ‘testify’ and that the saints are His ‘witnesses.’ The witness of the saints who have gone before us, who were killed by the antichrist beast Popes, for testifying; prove the point.

          The antichrist beast Popes banned and burned the Scriptures during the Dark Ages, and the persecuted the saints so harshly during that in 1514 A.D., they were deemed as ‘dead.’ Then 3 1/2 years later, Martin Luther posted his 95 Thesis, which sparked the Protestant Reformation, and brought the saints back to life. With the advent of the printing press, the ‘little book’ of Revelation 10, the printed Bible, was spread all over the world, witnessing about salvation by faith alone and not by the Roman sacraments.

          The harlot of Revelation 17 is easy to identify, for the Roman Archbishops and Cardinals wear purple and scarlet, and her priests use the golden cup during the blasphemous Eucharist ceremony, and she has shed the blood of over 50 million saints.

          • The Roman Catholic Church, although powerful, is simply one of the “children” of Babylon the Great (Isa. 47:8,9; Psa. 137:8,9). Freemasonry is the original “mystery” religion “mother” founded by Nimrod who gave birth to the other “prostitute” religions we see today. Early Christianity was corrupted by that religion primarily by Roman emperor Constantine, the sun worshipping “builder” (Masonry is sun worship and they are builders). You will find the colours purple and scarlet in every masonic lodge on earth, usually on the throne that the Worshipful Master sits upon. Freemasonry wields immense hidden power. Freemasons Winston Churchill and Harry S. Truman set up the Atlantic Charter which was the precursor to the United Nations. The great prostitute herself will be turned upon and devastated at the hands of the wild beast (Rev. 17:16,17).

          • Dr. John F. Walvoord is a classic futurist, taught by Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer, the founder of Dallas Theological Seminary; from which the enemy has spread the false, futuristic deceptions. I explain that path of deceptions from the Jesuits of Rome, who seek to deflect blame away from the antichrist beast Popes and the harlot church, on this page.

            Please tell me, if the 70th week of Daniel has not been fulfilled, according to the seventy-week prophecy in Daniel 9:24-27, in what week did Messiah die for our sins?

    • On that article, Dr. David R. Reagan has the timing of the prophecy correct, how is he missing the 70th week?

      He states, The time span I am proposing from 457 B.C. to 27 A.D. is also supported by another amazing piece of evidence.

      That’s 483 years, the time of the 69 weeks.

      Then he says, Further evidence that this date is correct is the fact that it would place the end of Jesus’ 3 1/2 year ministry in the spring of 31 A.D. And that happens to be the most likely year of the crucifixion.

      So he’s saying that Messiah was killed 3 1/2 years after the 69th week ended (in the middle of the 70th week), which is correct.

      Then somehow he says, One puzzle remains about Daniel’s prophecy. What about the 70th week? Is it past or future? I believe there is no doubt whatsoever that it is future.

      He just gave the timeline for the 69 weeks to be fulfilled, from 457 BC to 27 AD. He just said that Messiah died in 31 AD, 3 1/2 years after the 69th week ended.

      Daniel 9:26 says that Messiah will be ‘cut off’ killed AFTER the 69th week, meaning in the 70th week. And then Daniel 9:27 gives us the timing of His death, in the middle of the week, which ended the need for temple animal sacrifices.

      How in the world does he not see that Messiah’s ministry took place in the 70th week? He just declared as much!


      • You know I agree that it is Dr. David Reagan clearly gets the timeline right up until the “cutting off” and crucifiction of our Lord. Perhaps he doesn’t have clarity on the fulfillment of the second half of the 7 year period. There is a spiritual dilusionment that often comes over people that distorts their thinking when they sit under false teaching for years. Maybe he just can’t connect the dots that there is no futuristic events for the nation of Israe, being made desolate in 70 AD. The church then was birth in a day at the Day of Pentecost, True Spiritual Israel!

  5. End of Messiah (69 weeks):
    26a “And after the 62 weeks, Mes·siʹah will be cut off, with nothing for himself.”

    Leader who is to come (1 week):
    26b “And the people of a leader who is coming will destroy the city and the holy place. And its end will be by the flood. And until the end there will be war; what is decided upon is desolations.”

    Leader who is to come:
    27a “And he will keep the covenant in force for the many for one week; and at the half of the week, he will cause sacrifice and gift offering to cease.”

    Leader who is to come:
    27b “And on the wing of disgusting things there will be the one causing desolation; and until an extermination, what was decided on will be poured out also on the one lying desolate.”


    End of Messiah (69.5 weeks):
    26a “And after the 62 weeks (in the middle of the seventieth week), Mes·siʹah will be cut off, with nothing for himself.”

    Leader who is to come (1 week):
    26b “And the people of a leader who is coming will destroy the city and the holy place. And its end will be by the flood. And until the end there will be war; what is decided upon is desolations.”

    Back to the Messiah who was put to death:
    27a “And he will keep the covenant in force for the many for one week; and at the half of the week, he will cause sacrifice and gift offering to cease.”

    Leader who is to come:

    27b “And on the wing of disgusting things there will be the one causing desolation; and until an extermination, what was decided on will be poured out also on the one lying desolate.”

    Which one is it?

    • The second explanation fits the narrative. It’s a way of writing, where you split up the information in consecutive paragraphs, to convey two messages.
      In this case, one part is telling us when Messiah will carry out His ministry and be killed. And the other part tells us that the temple and city will be desolated, because of the Jews abominations, in that they rejected Messiah and delivered Him up to be killed.

      If you combine the narrative; it reads as:
      And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: 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 the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

      Verse 25 tells us that 69 weeks pass until Messiah the Prince, meaning He will appear in the 70th week. Verse 26 tells us that Messiah will be cut off, killed, after the 69 weeks, meaning in the 70th week. Verse 27 give us the timing of His death, in the middle of the 70th week, when He ratified the everlasting covenant with His blood as the Passover Lamb, which ended the need for temple sacrifices.

      • David and Paddy, I appreciated this dialog. Admittedly Paddy raises similar questions as what I have had (however, claiming to be the anointed prophet in sackcloth is a red flag that you are likely misguided in some ways, but I won’t cast away your perspective just because you are struggling in that regards, I give you no judgement and hope that your motives are in the right place….He alone will judge). However, David, your math adds up really well and I appreciate the logic. Also, I’ve never considered seeing the verses of Daniel 9 be “split” and recombined e.g. 26a27a and 26b27b. However, I do think there are other scriptures that lend credence to this technique of writing. I’ll have to search for them.

        My main question, as i’m processing this approach of “the 70th week is already fulfilled” is that of the two witnesses. I think Paddy brings up a good questions of the 3.5 days they are struck down. However you had a great numerical/historical/logical answer of the 95 thesis being 3.5 years. So that is helping me see it, but I need more supporting scripture for the two witnesses being the “scriptures and the saints”.

        Rev 11:3 And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” (how are these 1,260 days accounted for and what would be the reason for the SAME time period as the half of the 70th week but be independent of the 70th week?)
        Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth. (**this lines up very well with the House of Israel divorced from God to return to “the nations” i.e. gentiles and the House of Judah — the “two sticks that will be one”**)
        Rev 11:5 And if anyone would harm them, fire pours from their mouth and consumes their foes. If anyone would harm them, this is how he is doomed to be killed. (how does this line up for scripture and saints as the two witnesses?)
        Rev 11:6 They have the power to shut the sky, that no rain may fall during the days of their prophesying, and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague, as often as they desire. (how does this account for the scripture and the saints as the two witnesses??)
        Rev 11:7 And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that rises from the bottomless pit will make war on them and conquer them and kill them,
        Rev 11:8 and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city that symbolically is called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was crucified. (Is this the Jesuit’s warring against the reformation and killing them? If so, why is jerusalem included in this and what does it have to do with the reformation?)
        Rev 11:9 For three and a half days some from the peoples and tribes and languages and nations will gaze at their dead bodies and refuse to let them be placed in a tomb,
        Rev 11:10 and those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and make merry and exchange presents, because these two prophets had been a torment to those who dwell on the earth. (when does this occur? it’s always made sense to me that the two witnesses are seen by the world because of modern techology, social media, live news, etc)
        Rev 11:11 But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood up on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them.
        Rev 11:12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here!” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies watched them. (**the scriptures and the saints are carried up to heaven?? why would they “stood up on their feet” if this is not literal but figurative?)

        Thank you both for your desire to learn and understand. I believe that those who read and keep the words of the Apocalypse/Revelation will be blessed. Ultimately we need to place our faith and confidence in Christ alone. His ways are above ours.

        • Thank you for your comment Blake! It’s hard to answer all of your questions, as there are so many, and because you’re combining different prophecies together.

          The 70th week of Daniel has nothing to do with the end times, so it’s not about the antichrist or the Two Witnesses. The 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled on time, from 27-34 AD. In the 70th week of Daniel, Messiah ratified the everlasting covenant with His blood.

          Here’s a link to my Bible Prophecy Made Easy which will give you the big picture, so show how the prophecies in Daniel and Revelation are fulfilled; so that you can see the enemy’s futuristic deceptions. The studies on the website prove it out verse by verse.

          Here’s my study on the Two Witnesses

          Keep learning and growing in The Way!
