Pastor Chuck Baldwin On The Fulfillment Of The 70th Week Of Daniel 9

This 70th week of Daniel Bible study page features an article from Pastor Chuck Baldwin, about the historical fulfillment of the 70th Week Of Daniel 9 prophecy.

We are hearing evangelical pastors, preachers and Christians all over this country twist the Scripture and say to their fellow believers:

1. The Rapture is going to soon deliver us from the coming evil.

The Rapture theory is predicated upon C. I. Scofield’s (1843 – 1921) Israel-based prophecy doctrines. It interprets Daniel’s 70-Week prophecy to be in two sections: the first 69 weeks or 483 years, which ran consecutively and concluded with the crucifixion of Christ, and the second section (separated from the first section by thousands of years) consisting of a 7-year “tribulation” (primarily focused on the modern State of Israel) preceding the Second Coming of Christ.

But you needed a false teacher such as Scofield to tell you there was a gap of thousands of years between Daniel’s 69th and 70th weeks. You would have never come to that conclusion by reading the Scriptures alone.

The truth is that the Israel-based interpretation of prophecy is in total error. Prophecy is not Israel-based; it is Jesus based. The Book of Revelation is called “The Revelation of Jesus Christ” not “The Revelation of Israel.”

The last 7 years of Daniel’s prophecy are not future—there are no thousands-of-years gap between the 69th and 70th weeks. That is a Zionist concoction to deceive millions of Christians into supporting the advent of the communist/atheist State of Israel in 1948.

The final “week” (7 years) naturally followed the first 69 “weeks” (483 years), concluding with the conversion of the Gentile Cornelius, which ended the Jewish Church and made all people—Jews and Gentiles—one in the Body of Christ.

1 Thessalonians 4:15 – 17 speaks of Christ’s Second Coming. Not a pre-Second Coming “Rapture.” If Daniel’s 70 weeks are already fulfilled—and they are—then there cannot be a 7-year, Israel-based “tribulation,” and, hence, no “tribulation”-based “Rapture.”

Then, they say:

2. Our duty is to endure persecution and martyrdom, if we aren’t raptured first.

Obviously, IF God’s sovereign will is that we face martyrdom; we must and will endure it. That is, IF we are truly saved and indwelled by the Holy Spirit of God.

However, there are innumerable professing Christians today who are unwilling to simply buck the tide of political correctness that openly attacks our liberties. They are not willing to make the smallest sacrifices to resist what are obvious attacks against our liberties by a beastly antichrist system.

Do you really think that these same “Christians” are going to be willing to face martyrdom for Christ? I don’t think so.

The doctrines of Christian Zionism that would have us sit around and wait for an Israel-based “Rapture,” all the while going along with the Machiavellian machinations of would-be tyrants, are, to put it mildly, NOT of God.

The 70th Week Of Daniel 9 Decoded by David Nikao Wilcoxson

I just published a book called The 70th Week Of Daniel Decoded, which provides more information than the website.

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 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.

You can order it as a printed book or in Kindle format.

  1. So, if the 70th week of Daniel has already happened, are you saying that the “Tribulation” has also already happened? If so, what about the Trumpet, Vial and Bowl judgements? Have they also already happened?

    • The 70th week of Daniel 9 is about Messiah’s first advent. It foretold the time of His visitation when He carried out His ministry and died for our sins. It has nothing to do with the judgments in Revelation. As for the prophecies in Revelation, in the first verse Messiah says that these things will take place shortly and in the third verse that the time is at hand.

      Much of Revelation has been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years, and we are in the bowl judgments, waiting on a few things to be fulfilled before Messiah returns. Here’s a link to a Revelation Fulfillment Summary. The studies on the website give a verse by verse explanation, and my book gives much more detail.

      The enemy has been very effective in deceiving the end-times saints, as prior to 1,900 the saints all believed that Revelation has been in the process of being fulfilled since the first century. The enemy has put aside their witness and caused people to believe that it’s all future.

      Blessings to you,

  2. Revelation has been fulfilled. This is not to say similar events will not repeat.
    The Word as we know it is not addressed to us, but for us.
    Matthew 24 is the foretelling of Revelation which was addressed to the 7 churches in Asia Minor.
    Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 describe as such. John did not address the destruction of Jerusalem in his gospel. Why? John devoted the entire book of Revelation.
    A study of history records the destruction, especially by Jewish sources. This was the utter end of the Old Covenant. The destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. is not in the Word because it had not happened to this point. Christ warned of the coming judgment on several occasions; Matt. 16:28, 24:34; Mk. 9:1, 12:30; Lk. 9:27, 21:32.
    Christ was speaking to them (v. 2, 15, you is abundant in ch. 24), the disciples, Matthew 24:1-3. Matthew 24:3 finishes with “end of the world”. This is the KJV translation, world is Greek aion which refers to the end of a time period, not the end of time or universe.
    Acts is the transitional book which leads to total grace of the New Covenant that permanently ends the O.T. and Judaism.
    Judaism has not been practiced since 70 A.D.. You cannot practice Judaism without the required animal sacrifice.
    If you have a response I’ll note dispensationalist usually respond in anger.

    • Robert, I’m not a dispensationalist, so your association is off-target.

      I teach that the 70th week of Daniel 9 was fulfilled on time, by Messiah; and the concept of it being about the end times is a deception.

      I teach that the prophecies in Messiah’s Olivet Discourse were fulfilled in that generation, as judgment against the unbelieving Jewish nation; and the concept of it being about the end times is a deception.

      And I prove that most of the prophecies in Revelation have been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years, which disproves that it’s about the desolation of Jerusalem in the first century.

    • Yeah, sadly, most people have been misled by the false, futuristic prophecy fulfillment explanations. Keep learning and growing in The Way of Messiah!
