Daniel’s 70 Weeks Prophecy and the 1260 DAYS

Ministry of Jesus - 1260 DaysDaniel 12:1 tells of a war and a time of trouble like no other period in human history. Perhaps deep down we have the desire to live in this critical time period about which the Scriptures write, or maybe we just imagine, because we are so far advanced scientifically, that these terrible times MUST be in or near our day. Daniel 12:7 says this critical period will last for a time (1 year), times (two additional years) and a half a time (or half a year), in other words 3 ½ years in all. If we would imagine a period in human history when evil is or was so great, it is singled out in Scripture as a time like no other since there was a nation, when would that be? Would it be the time at the end of our present age? We certainly live in perilous times, but wouldn’t the most evil and terrible time of human history be when we crucified our Savior? Think about it. Jesus came to save us, and we killed him. If God didn’t resurrect him and forgive us, we would have no hope—not a snowball’s chance in the hell-fire! Read the rest of this entry »

Daniel’s 70 Weeks Prophecy

70 Weeks Prophecy.- 3jpg

Daniel’s Seventy Weeks Prophecy is found in Daniel 9:24-27. Daniel divides the 70 weeks of years into 7 weeks + 62 weeks + 1 week. The first division governed the 49 years it took to build the Temple and the walls surrounding the city. The second division governed the time from the building of the Temple and walls to the coming of the Messiah 434 years later. Most Christians today believe the seventieth and final week of the prophecy has been cut off from the previous 69 prophetic weeks and represents the final 7 years at the end of this age just prior to Jesus return. However, this understanding doesn’t seem to fit the Scriptures, and for the next several posts I hope to offer a reasonable explanation of what Daniel really prophesied, and in so doing show the prophecy stands fulfilled.
