70 Weeks of Years - Created: March 2009
The following is a chronological
list towards an attempt to explain one of the greatest mysteries of the
Judeo-Christian faith as was prophesied some 2,550 years ago.
There are countless references to this subject in the ranks of
religious theology, which provide an ample and a diversity of concepts
as to the correct interpretation. Hopefully, this material will
be of interest to you and an influence in your life towards a renewal
relationship with the Spirit of God.
Daniel’s prophesy of the seventy weeks of years. About 538 B.C. Daniel 9:24-27.
The Temple discourse is given just before Messiah is cut off or crucified. Matthew 24:1-3,Mark 13:1-5, Luke 21:5-7.
Jesus is rejected after fulfilling 1185 days of Daniel’s 69th
week, thus leaving 1335 days of the week to be fulfilled by the false
messiah, the man of sin, or the antichrist. God no longer accepts
the daily sacrifice after Jesus was cut off on the 1185th day of His earthly ministry.
The 1186th day begins the ministry of the antichrist. Matthew 26-27, Mark 14-15, Luke 22-23, 18-19.
A noticeable increase in famines,
pestilences or various diseases and earthquakes. Matthew 24:3-6,
Mark 13:6-7, Luke 21:8-9.
The beginning of sorrows, referring
to a warning of events in the very near future. Matthew24:7-8,
Mark 13:8, Luke 21:10-11.
The nation of Israel believes it
has established “peace with security” and the antichrist persuades ten
Arab nations to trick Israel by appearing to recognize their right in
the land under the Abrahamic covenant which begins the last 1335 days
of Daniel’s 69 week. Revelation 17:12-14, I Thessalonians 5:3-5.
The 144,000 descendants of Israel are selected and protected by God from physical death. Revelation 7:2-4, 12:5-17.
Syria has full control of the Golan
Heights and after75 days, conducts an invasion or Holy War towards
Jerusalem. This will be the beginning of the Great Tribulation Period.
Zechariah 14:1-4, Revelation13:3-5. The times of the Gentiles
begin and last for 1,260 days. Revelation11:2. Ezekiel
38:1-17, Revelation 17:17.
The previously sealed remnant of
144,000 Israelites are carried to a place of safety by friendly nations
acting under the influence of God’s Spirit and care is provided for
them in the Negev for 1,260 days. Revelation 12:5-14.
The false prophet, a religious
leader accepted by the Arabs proclaims him to be the returned
messiah. The false prophet begins to perform numerous miracles to
support his identification of the antichrist and the mark of the beast
begins to be applied. Matthew24:15-18, Mark 13:14-23, Revelation
The antichrist and his ten Arab
nations turn against the false prophet with his religious system and
destroy their worship sites. Revelation 18:12-18.
The seventh trumpet sounds, also
understood as the last trump and the Rapture of the saved from the
earth occurs. Revelation 11:15-18, 14:13-16, I
Corinthians15:51-52, I Thessalonians 4:16-17.
The wrath of God begins and the
nations of Eurasia and the Mideast gather for the final destruction of
the Jews in the Negev or the battle of Armageddon.
The religious system in Rome is
completely destroyed by volcanic fire. Ezekiel 38:18-23,
Zechariah 14:4-15, Joel3:9-17, Matthew 24:29, Mark 13:24-25, Luke
21:25-26, Revelation 16:1-21,18:1-10.
The fullness of the Gentiles, the end of the church age, the age of grace or the end of the world. Romans 11:25.
The coming of the Lord Jesus Christ
as King of kings and Lord of lords to reign for 1,000
years. Matthew 24:30-31, Mark 13:26-27, Luke 21:27-28, Revelation
Every soul from man’s creation not
having acknowledged the promised Sacrifice and Savior of humanity will
appear before the great white throne and be cast into the eternal lake
of fire as their just punishment. Revelation 20:11-15.
The creation of a new heaven and a
new earth. The heavenly city is prepared, with pearly gates and
streets of gold. The faithful enter into the city and the
unfaithful remain outside on the earth. The Lord Jesus Christ is
worshiped upon the throne in the center of the city for the duration of
eternity. He imparts new spiritual instructions as the Master and
Great Teacher of the universe. Revelation 21-22.
When the majority of the American
troops have left the Iraq, this will give the Arabs a sense of freedom
to proceed with the attack upon Israel. America will not have time to
assemble, nor be willing to send troops into this short term war.
“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 High. Know therefore and
understand,that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and
to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks,
and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again,
and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and
two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: 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 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 for the
overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the
consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Daniel9:24-27.
How Much Of Daniel’s 70 Weeks Remain?
“From” to “Unto” = Messiah = 69 Weeks
“After” 69 Weeks = Into The 70th Week
This States That Messiah Began The 70th
Week and At Some Time During It, Was
Crucified For The Sins Of Others.
First 69 Weeks--- Final 70th Week
7 Weeks + 62 Weeks--- “After” In 70th Week
Weeks--- 1185 Days---1335 Day
7-years times 360-days equals
2520-days. Jesus Christ fulfilled 1185-days, with the remaining
1335-days for the Tribulation Period, during which all the nations of
the world will be destroyed.

The Covenant fulfilling time period
of Daniel’s Messiah the Prince from His baptism to His death, in
prophetic years of 360 days, was 1080 + 105 days, or some
1185days. This possibly could be the case,because it meets the
qualifications of being in the “midst” of the week, and can be
correlated with three sets of figures given by Daniel pertaining to the
last week in his seventy weeks of years. It is quite possible, we
only have 1335 days left to be fulfilled in Daniel’s70th week.
“And from the time that the daily
sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate
set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred
and five and thirty days.” Daniel12:11-12.
