This 70th week of Daniel Bible study focuses on how Messiah fulfilled all that was purposed in Daniel 9:24
The reason this is so important is that many Pastors teach that because the Jews didn’t accept their promised Messiah, and because they did not fulfill Elohim’s requirements in verse 24; then they must be given more time to do it, which they teach will happen during the supposed 7-year tribulation period.
Let’s look at the purposes for the 70th week of Daniel, to see that it’s impossible for the Jews, or anyone, to fulfill the demands. You will see that only Messiah the Prince, the Lamb of Elohim, could fulfill them; which invalidates Pastors argument that the Jews will do it.
Before we go through these purposes to see how Messiah fulfilled them, let’s look at the proper context.
Prior to this prophecy, the Israelites had failed to keep Elohim’s commandments to them, which resulted in His punishing them:
Solomon worshiped the false gods of his foreign wives, which caused the Father to split the kingdom in two, the House of Israel and the House of Judah.
The northern House of Israel fell into worshiping the false gods of the Assyrians, so the Father caused the Assyrians to attack and scatter them.
The southern House of Judah (the Jews) fell into worshiping the false gods of the Babylonians, so the Father caused the Babylonians to kill those who resisted, and take captive those who cooperated. They were in captivity for 70 years, which is when the 70 weeks of Daniel prophecy was given.
Through all of these calamities, there was always a faithful remnant who believed in the Father by faith, such as Daniel and Isaiah.
But the majority sought to fulfill the law out of their flesh and they always failed, for “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God” 1 Corinthians 15:50
So now the Father was giving the Jews 490 years to reconcile with Him and accept their coming Messiah. The Father had punished them for 70 years, but His compassion caused Him to give them 490 years to reconcile with Him.
The simple context of the 70th week of Daniel is that the coming Messiah would offer salvation through the New Covenant to the House of Israel and the House of Judah.
“Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.” Jeremiah 31:31
“The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; For this is My covenant with them, When I take away their sins.” Romans 11:26
Those who accepted Him as their Messiah, the true Israelites of Elohim would be saved. They would be saved to eternal life, but they would also be saved when they escaped the desolation of Jerusalem in 70 A.D., fulfilling the prophecy “so all Israel will be saved.”
Those that rejected Him as their Messiah would be lost in their sins, and they would be desolated at the hands of the Roman army.
Here’s the purposes of the 70th weeks of Daniel prophecy that are given in Daniel 9:24.
“Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, 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.”
The prophet Daniel would have known the writings of Isaiah, and when you read Isaiah 53, which is a prophecy about the coming Messiah, you see many of the words that are used in Daniel 9:24-27, which also point to Messiah.
- He was wounded for our transgressions.
- The Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all
- For He was cut off. (Daniel 9:26 says “Messiah shall be cut off“)
- For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
- My righteous Servant shall justify many. (Daniel 27 says “he shall confirm a covenant with many“)
- For He shall bear their iniquities.
- And He bore the sin of many.
- And made intercession for the transgressors.
To finish the transgression.
A remnant of Jews returned to rebuild the temple and the city, but a majority did not repent of their sins and stayed in Babylon even after they were set free.
During his ministry, most of them rejected their promised Messiah.
In Messiah’s condemnation of the Jewish leaders He said, “Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt. Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?” Matthew 23:31-33
The ultimate transgression of the Hebrew people is expressed by Peter: “The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified His Servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go. But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses.” Acts 3:13-15
In what marked their final rejection of their Messiah, the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem killed Stephen after he proclaimed, “You stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you. Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who foretold the coming of the Just One, of whom you now have become the betrayers and murderers, who have received the law by the direction of angels and have not kept it.” Acts 7:51-52
In Matthew 21:33-46 Messiah told the parable of the Wicked Vinedressers. In verse 43, Messiah told the Jews, “Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.”
This was fulfilled after the New Covenant was preached to the Jews for 7 years, then after Stephen was stoned to death, the message of the Gospel went to the nations (Gentiles).
Thus we see that the “thy people” of Daniel 9 24 included the very ones who were responsible for the death of their Messiah. The National transgression was complete.
Let’s now look at how Messiah fulfilled the demand to finish the transgression.
“He was taken from prison and from judgment, And who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgressions of my people He was stricken.” Isaiah 53:8
“Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” Isaiah 53:12
“So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.” John 19:30
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.
“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
To make reconciliation for iniquity.
No man can make reconciliation for their sins, so this can’t apply to the Jews, only to our Savior.
Isaiah 53:5 foretold Messiah’s fulfillment, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
“For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.” Romans 5:10-11
“Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.” Corinthians 5:18-19
“For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight.” Colossians 1:19-22
“Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.” Hebrews 2:17
Reconciliation for iniquity was accomplished by the sacrificial death of Messiah as the Lamb of Elohim.
To bring in everlasting righteousness.
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?
To seal up the vision and prophecy.
Man cannot seal up the vision or prophecy, so this can’t apply to the Jews.
The Mosaic Law and covenant pointed to Messiah. He sealed them up, that is, he accomplished them, answered to them to a tittle; all things that were written in the law, the prophets, and the psalms, concerning the Messiah, were fulfilled in him.
“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.” Matthew 5:17
To anoint the Most Holy.
Only Elohim can anoint the Most Holy. The returning Jews rebuilt the temple, but it was never anointed by the Father, the Ark of the Covenant was never placed there, and the Father’s presence didn’t fill the temple.
Messiah fulfilled this when He came in the flesh and our High Priest was anointed.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” Luke 4:18-19,21
“Now there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, saying, “Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are–the Holy One of God!” Mark 1:23-24
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” Acts 10:38
In summary: All six of these purposes were fulfilled during the 70th week of Daniel. Messiah has fulfilled everything that He commanded the Jews to do.
In the words of the Messiah, “it is finished” John 19:30

Next 70th Week Of Daniel Study: An End Times 70th Week of Daniel is Illogical
20 thoughts on “Messiah Fulfilled The Purposes Of Daniel 9:24 During The 70th Week Of Daniel”
David, thanks for sending me to this link, this all makes sense until you read the next 3 verses that expand on v.24.
V.27 shows that in the last week of 7 years, (69 had already passed) He will cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease. This didn’t happen until 44 years later when the temple was destroyed in 70AD. Remember, v.27 says that the sacrifice and oblation will cease in the last ‘week’ and based on the start date of 457BC the end date must have been 33AD so the sacrifices had to have stopped by then.. but they didn’t.. or was the prophecy out by a few years? I don’t think so.
The 490 years was not over in 33AD though. The prophecy was set aside when 483 years had passed which was at the time of Christs death : 26AD. For more information on the Fathers dealing with Israel in the future please refer to Romans 11 where Paul explains the future of the real Israel. It has nothing to do with the fake Israel of today.
To clarify, Messiah was prophesied to be ‘cut off’ at the end of the 69th week. The maths : 457BC+483 years = 26AD. He isn’t ‘cut off’ half way through, or even at the end of the 70th week. His life, ministry and death were prophesied to happen by the end of the 69th week.
On some of your posts you have suggested there is a lot of deception out there and I don’t disagree. Most churches have been deceived into supporting the current nation of ‘Israel’ which is not the prophesied Israel it is an Israel created by man. Refer to the Belfort agreement. Ezekiel 36 explains about the valley of dry bones and I believe this is where the truth lies in relation to who this remnant is and how they will come about.
Most churches encourage ‘jews’ to go back to Israel the ‘promised land’ and think of them as ‘God’s chosen people’ when this simply isn’t the case. The bible is clear that today there is now neither Jew nor Greek and the only way to Salvation is through faith in Christ. The modern day ‘Jews’ are only Jews by name and they are not any different to anyone else. They follow a religion that is based on the Babylonian talmud which is totally opposed to Christ and speaks about Him in the most disgusting manner. It has nothing to do with the Old Testament Torah. They need Jesus just like the muslims, hindus, atheists or any one else out there who might be willing to hear the truth.
Tim, Daniel 9:27 was declaring the He would end the need for temple sacrifices, as He was the one-time sacrifice for our sins.
This was confirmed when the Father tore the temple curtain in two.
But since the Jewish leaders rejected Him as their promised Messiah, they continued making sacrifices.
Their temple sacrifices were ended by the ‘people of the prince’, which was foretold in Daniel 9:26.
The text declared that Messiah would APPEAR after the 69 weeks.
And that He would be cut off IN THE MIDDLE of the 70th week.
v.27 ‘and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease’.
This text does not say that he will cause ‘the need’ for sacrifices to cease. It says that the sacrifice will cease.
Again, the text does not declare that Messiah would appear after 69 weeks. The text declares that Messiah will be ‘cut off’ after 69 weeks.
Put the two things together Tim. When know that when Messiah died as the Passover Lamb, that ended the need for temple sacrifices, as He was the one-time offering for our sins. We know that the Father tore the temple curtain in two when He died, which confirms that the need for temple sacrifices ended. This is very straight-forward stuff!
The ‘he’ of Daniel 9:27 has to be Messiah, because it is pointing to the proper noun of the previous verse. The ‘people’ in verse 26 is not a ‘he’. And the ‘prince’ is not the noun, as it only describes who the people are from. The ‘people of the prince’ was pointing to the army of Roman prince Titus, who desolated the temple and city.
So Daniel 9:27 is saying “And Messiah 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.”
Agreed David. It is fairly straight forward stuff. I agree that the ‘he’ in the verses is Messiah, and I agree that He completed the work so that the sacrifices were no longer needed but the fact of the matter is that those sacrifices continued for another 40 odd years. If the bible says He will put an end to them then that literally means he will put an end to them straight away. We can’t just read Daniel and Revelation here we need to read what Paul said to fully understand it.
It seems you are overlooking an important part of the bible. Paul says Israel was set aside to be dealt with in the future when the fullness of the gentiles has come in. Now if this had already happened at the time of the cross how and when was salvation offered as a free gift to the gentiles?
Well Tim, a 70 week prophecy is fulfilled in 70 consecutive weeks or it’s invalid. So we must seek out how the 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled after the 69th week. The text declares that Messiah would appear AFTER the 69th week, which means that He appeared in the 70th week. He didn’t just appear and die, He carried out His ministry which lasted for years, as witnessed by Him attending different Passovers, and then dying on Passover.
We know that His sacrifice ended the need for sacrifices, as symbolized by the temple curtain being torn in two. And temple sacrifices were ended in 70 A.D., as the punishment for the Jews delivering the promised Messiah up to be killed; was the desolation of their temple and city.
The text does not say that the punishment would be carried out in the 70 defined weeks. It was the result of what the Jews did in the 70th week of Daniel, deny their promised Messiah and deliver Him up to be killed.
The Father had mercy on them and allowed them time to repent and accept Messiah. Some Jews did, and they formed the Early Church.
Any explanation of a futurist 70th week of Daniel is invalid, as there is no ‘time gap’ declared in the text. Just a 7-week, a 62-week and a 1-week period, fulfilled consecutively from 457-34 A.D.
For seven years, through the witness of Messiah and His disciples, it was confirmed with the Jews that He is the promised Messiah. It was confirmed that He is the Passover Lamb who ratified the everlasting covenant, with His blood. Some believed and were saved, but most rejected Him and were lost.
Then the Gospel was also preached to the Gentile nations. So the preaching of the Gospel to the gentiles does not render the 70th week of Daniel as not being completed. It actually confirms the end of the 70th week, as the Gospel had only been preached to the Jews first, for seven years, during the 70th week of Daniel.
I see where you’re coming from but you’re overlooking the fact that Paul tells us in no uncertain terms that God has not yet finished dealing with Israel. Please let me be clear, I’m not a zionist, I’m not a catholic, I’m not even a protestant, I’m just a sinner who accepted Christ’s payment for my sins. It took me 30 years to learn that that’s what a Christian is but anyway, I’m not referring to the Israel we see today, I have no agenda, I’m referring to the real Israel as is written in the scripture. The remnant. Those who were blinded. Those whom God made an everlasting covenant with. Everlasting means everlasting.
1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying,
3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.
8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.
9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them:
10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.
11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.
12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?
13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:
14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.
15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.
20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.
24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father’s sakes.
29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
Does this gap in prophecy make the 70 weeks invalid? Perhaps it would if Israel existed now but it doesn’t. Let me ask you this, if the Creator of Heaven and Earth decides to put a prophecy on hold in order to reveal a hidden plan of salvation for the whole world, who are we to declare it invalid? Paul clearly seems to think His plan is valid.
It is a little difficult to accept that there is a literal gap between week 69 and week 70 because the Catholic Church or its jesuit agents put out the rapture and future tribulation idea, they didn’t really they just got it and twisted it but it’s beside the point, there is no way to deny the gap as truth. Daniel says Messiah appeared in the 69th week and was ‘cut off’ at the end of it. Daniel also says that the Messiah will appear in the 70th week and He most certainly will.
I have seen all the corruption that has taken place over the last 2000 years, particularly in the Catholic Church, it is very easy to see the popes as Antichrist, particularly with the accuracy of those dates between 538 and 1798 but the popes are simply ‘antichrists’ and need to hear the gospel! Satan has a field day with them because they’re fantastic at making Christians look like complete fools.. But these guys are nothing in comparison to the false Messiah who is coming. If you ask me he is likely close.
Paul said that the ‘falling away’ must happen and the ‘man of sin’ must be revealed before the day Christ gathers us together unto him. If you ask me the falling away is happening now. Most churches don’t even preach the gospel anymore, theres little difference between right and wrong, they’re accepting gay marriage around the world, they don’t teach the Word, young Christians are brainwashed when they go to their preferred brand of theological seminary so what can we expect to happen. Never the less, now is not a prophetic time. We are not living in the ‘so called’ end times, this dispensation of grace will last as long as God wants it to and then.. time for the final week to begin.
Tim, our Creator knows all things before they happen, so He would not put a 70 week prophecy on hold, that makes no sense. There is no gap defined in the text, so inserting one is bad theology. http://70thweekofdaniel.com/an-end-times-70th-week-of-daniel-is-illogical/
I’ve given you the explanation that Messiah started His ministry AFTER the 69th week, and that it lasted for several years, as witnessed by the Passover events in the book of John. This all matches up with Him dying as the Passover Lamb midway through the 70th week, which ended the need for sacrifices.
You can read the narrative of Acts to see that the resurrected Messiah was preached to the Jews only for several years. Then after Stephen was stoned to death, the narrative changed dramatically, and the Gospel was also preached to the gentile nations.
The text does not declare that the covenant was only for 7 years. It declares that the covenant was confirmed with the Jews for seven years. It is talking about the everlasting covenant, which Messiah ratified with His blood as the Passover Lamb, which provides forgiveness of sins for those who believe.
So the covenant did not end after the 70 weeks ended. It is the same covenant that we are saved by today.
The office of the papacy is the antichrist, there will be no other, there will just be a final antichrist Pope.
Yes, there is a falling away from truth now, but the falling away that Paul was writing happened in the 4th century, when Emperor Constantine created the Roman religion of Christianity, to move people away from Scriptural truth. He replaced the Scriptural calendar with the Roman calendar which is Sun-focused. He replaced the Father’s seven Holy Feast Days with Christmas and Easter. Then the Popes rose to power after that, in the 6th century. http://christianitybeliefs.org/the-falling-away/
The Popes fulfill Bible prophecy as the Son of Perdition, as they pretend to be a part of the true church (temple), but are really the antichrist. http://revelationtimelinedecoded.com/the-son-of-perdition-of-2-thessalonians-2/
The antichrist Popes control the harlot Roman Catholic Church, which is based on the pagan religion of Mystery Babylon. http://revelationtimelinedecoded.com/revelation-17-the-harlot-roman-catholic-church/
What Paul taught has no bearing on the 70th week of Daniel. The Gospel is preached today to both Jews and Gentiles.
Romans 2:28-29 tells us that a Jew is one inwardly, whose heart is circumcised.
“For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.”
Romans 9:6-8 says Abraham’s fleshly descendants ARE NOT the children of God.
“For they are not all Israel who are of Israel, nor are they all children because they are the seed of Abraham; but, “In Isaac your seed shall be called.” That is, those who are the children of the flesh, these are NOT the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.”
Galatians 3:7 tells us that ONLY those who are of faith are the children of God.
“Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham.”
Galatians 3:16 tells us that the seed of Abraham is Jesus Christ.
“Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say,“And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “and to your Seed,” who is Christ.”
Galatians 3:28-29 tells us that followers of Christ (Jew and Gentile) are Abraham’s seed who receive the promises made to Abraham.
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
I pray that there is a mighty move among Jews to accept the Messiah of Scripture, but there is no separate dispensation for the Jews in the end times.
“For they are not all Israel who are of Israel, nor are they all children.”
That’s right. Not all of them. It’s not enough just to say you’re from Israel. It’s more than that. But there is a remnant who were blinded for a reason and they are yet to be dealt with. You have verses from Romans 9 in there but chapter 11 explains.
You said you pray that Jews today will accept their messiah. Instead pray that all people, regardless of race or religion get the opportunity to hear and accept the gospel of salvation. The gospel that saves. Unfortunately just calling Jesus the Messiah will not save anyone today. We all need to recognise our sin whether we be pink brown or blue, jew muslim or hindu, German, Australian or american, and trust in Christ’s finished work at the cross. That’s the only way to be saved.
I think that you just like to argue Tim! I made the statement that I pray for Jews to accept their Messiah, and you criticize that by saying that I should pray for all people. Our focus was on the Jews, so I commented on that. Of course I pray for all people to be saved. Like I said, you just like to point all how you think that I am wrong. Sad story bro!
I would add to the verse “there is neither Jew nor Greek…for ye are all one in Christ Jesus” — I would apply “what God hath joined together, let not man put asunder”, not even John Nelson Darby or CI Scofield.
Jews and Gentiles are one in Christ, not two separate entities.
It blows my mind that I used to believe in dispensationalism.
Thank you for your comment Steve! Yeah, I used to believe the dispensationalism narrative too. I wrote a chapter in my Olivet Discourse Decoded book about Messiah setting up His Father’s kingdom in the first century, which is made up of the Jews and Gentiles of His Ekklesia of saints. The true Israelites, both Jews and Gentiles who have a covenant relationship with the Father through the Son, make up Holy Jerusalem. HalleluYah! https://theolivetdiscourse.com/messiah-set-up-his-kingdom/
I see how I come across that way David but I genuinely don’t mean to be argumentative. Like I said I’m off the page. Before I go though I should say that I’ve seen an article on the side bar on ‘flat earth deception exposed’.. I haven’t opened it yet but I don’t think you will want me to. Haha..
All the best.
No worries Tim. I’ve shared what I believe is true about the fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel, and you disagreed; so there was no point in extending out the discussion; as I’m busy with comments on my other websites.
The Flat Earth Deception Exposed website shows what I found to be true when I investigated whether the Earth is flat or not. http://flatearthdeception.com
Keep learning and growing in The Way!
If there exist a vague gap then, what abut d jews in jesus’ time? wil they b resurected to be given a second chance to accept christ? i need some xplanation here.
Well, there is no gap. A 70 week prophecy gets fulfilled in 70 weeks, or it’s not valid.
Some Jews believed in their promised Messiah, and they were saved.
The rest rejected Him and they were desolated in 70 A.D., when 1.1 million Jews died in and around Jerusalem; from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, crucifixion and by the Roman sword. And the temple and city were desolated, just like Messiah said that they would be.
Messiah foretold all of this in His Olivet Discourse. http://theolivetdiscourse.com
There is no Scripture which says that people will be resurrected and given a second chance.
Those Jews will be resurrected and judged before their Creator, and they will bow their knee to their promised Messiah.
Everything you have written is absolutely correct. I have written a book that expands upon what you have written and enlightens it considerably, however I must add you did make some very good comments that I fully agree with, that I never saw to put into my work. It is true how satan used the great whore the Catholic Church to deceive people concerning the end times. They also corrupted 2 Thess chapter 2 to support their garbage. I have included this in my book also. A person just has to be stiff-neck and hard hearted not to see the truth if he just would read Daniel 9 with a open spirit. I would like to send you a bound prepublication of my book. Do you have an address where i could send it to you. Blessings. Ron
Hello Ron, I’ll send you an email with my address. Thank you, David
I really support David.Thanks for that analysis.
Thank you for your comment! All praise goes to our Heavenly Father and our Messiah!!!
