The Apocalypse and the 70 Weeks Prophecy

Daniel's 70 Weeks Prophecy

from Google Images

Before beginning my study of the Apocalypse, I think I need to mention my understanding of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks Prophecy. Because, unless one is able to see that Daniel and the writer of the Apocalypse agree on when Jerusalem and the Temple were to be destroyed, the Bible student simply cannot hope to be accurate in his understanding of either book.

The First to Die for Christ

Stephen’s death (Acts 7:51-60) is probably the most significant chapter in the life of the Church since Pentecost. He is the first believer whose blood was shed in Jesus name, and I don’t believe its significance is fully appreciated in the Church today. It may come as a surprise to know that he was probably stoned on the Day of Atonement 3 ½ years after Jesus’ crucifixion and comes at the culmination of the second half of the 70th week of Daniels 70 Weeks Prophecy. The first half of that week incorporated Jesus’ public ministry which ended in his crucifixion in the “midst of the week” (cp. Daniel 9:26-27). Both halves equal 7 years or the 70th Week beginning on the Feast of Trumpets in 27 CE and ending on the Day of Atonement or 10th day of the seventh month in 34 CE. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »
