THE 70 WEEKS PROPHECY DANIEL 9 - AND STEPHEN'S VISION

Acts 7:55-57

Do you realize the significance of Jesus STANDING on the right hand of God the Father in Stephen's vision? The Jewish leaders knew what it meant, which is why they stoned Stephen to death. This is tied in with the 70 week prophecy of Daniel.

The 70 weeks of Daniel 9 is an amazing prophecy that provides us with a number of important truths. This prophecy gives us an important date for the 2300 day (years) prophecy of Daniel 8 and it also gives us a definitive time frame that God gave to the Jews as a nation to turn to Him and accept Jesus. Most important of all it confirms Jesus Christ as the Messiah. In this amazing study we will find out exactly what happened to the Jewish nation when this time prophecy was fulfilled and came to an end, as confirmed above in Acts 7.

It is interesting that many orthodox Jews leave this prophecy well alone, because they believe it to be accursed. The tragic thing is, if they really studied and heeded what it said, then they would have realized exactly who Jesus Christ was. This is one reason why Bible prophecy is so important for us to study and find out the truth, because through it, God reveals vital information for us.

Unfortunately today we have so many different interpretations of end times Bible prophecy. And this prophecy of the 70 weeks is no exception. With no authority from the Word of God, many Christians cut off the last 7 years from this prophecy and place them in the future. Sadly, many have been deceived by Roman Catholic Church Jesuit false teachings regarding Bible prophecy. The truth is, the seventy weeks of Daniel are seventy CONTINUOUS weeks of prophetic time. This is so important to grasp. There are no gaps in between this prophecy, but a continuous unbroken time line. There is no scriptural support for the theory that the last week of this 70 weeks prophecy is cut off and placed in the future, like so many people like to believe. None at all! So how long is the 70 'prophetic' weeks? We will find out below. Let's now delve into this fascinating Bible prophecy from Daniel.

Daniel 9:2

Daniel was a student of Jeremiah's prophecies, and understood that the 70 years of captivity for the Israelites had come to an end.

Jeremiah 25:11-12

The seventy years that Jeremiah had prophesied about had now come to an end with the fall of Babylon.

Daniel now comes before God in prayer, saying.

Daniel 9:5-6

The Israelites kept falling into sin and disobeying God, and if you study through the Old Testament you will find that they kept falling into apostasy over and over again and that is why they were many sins, and constant turning from the LORD. So Daniel comes before God to confess their sins and ask for forgiveness. So this is a good lesson for us in that we should be asking for forgiveness for others we know, not just pray for himself, he prays for ALL Israel.

Daniel 9:20-22

Daniel was given a vision in chapter 8, and now during his prayer the angel Gabriel was commanded by God to go and give Daniel understanding about the vision. Now we know that this was concerning the vision in chapter 8, because there is no other vision given to Daniel between that time and his prayer in chapter 9. The vision is concerning the 2300 days (from chapter 8), where at the end of the vision, if you read it, you will find that that Daniel fainted and was sick and couldn't understand the vision (Daniel 8:27). Gabriel had now come to give Daniel 'skill and understanding' about the vision. We now delve into the actual 70 weeks prophecy of Daniel.

Daniel 9:24.

This prophecy of the 70 weeks was given to the Jews to put an end to their sins and accept God's Son Jesus Christ. God chose the nation of Israel to be a light to the world and bring glory to Him. But as we know the Israelites failed because of their constant sin and apostasy. So now God through Daniel given them "70 weeks" to put an end once and for all to their sin and apostasy.

Think about it! If God gave you a certain time to put away sin and you don't do it, what is going to happen? God is going to do something at that time isn't He? Let us find out.

STARTING POINT FOR THE 70 WEEKS

Are the 70 weeks of Daniel literal weeks? No, in Bible prophecy a day equals a year. Note the following two scriptures:

Ezekiel 4:6 Numbers 14:34

One day in bible prophecy is one literal year. So let's calculate the 70 weeks. 70×7=490. So the 70 weeks = 490 prophetic days, but taking into account that a day = a year in bible prophecy, then this 70 weeks is actually 490 years. Most bible scholars are in agreement that this time period is actually 490 years, not days. But when did this 490 years start?

Daniel 9:25

The seventy weeks prophecy of Daniel was to begin, as said in this verse, at the command to rebuild Jerusalem. When was this?

Ezra 7:13,20

Artaxerxes issued the above decree in 457BC. This is where some people disagree, because the command to rebuild Jerusalem had already been given by Cyrus, and the rebuilding had already started. We find this decree in Ezra 1:3

This decree was given in 539BC. But the Israelites were forced to stop rebuilding the city by Artaxerxes.

Ezra 4:21,23

But notice that they were to only stop UNTIL they were given another command by Artaxerxes to continue. So it is at this second command that the 490 year (70 weeks) prophecy begins.

Is there any way we can be sure that we have chosen the right command? Yes! There is a very sure way of knowing that we have chosen the right one, because within this 70 weeks (490 years) prophecy, Christ is revealed as the Messiah.

Daniel 9:25

Did you notice there, from the command unit MESSIAH THE PRINCE? This is none other than Christ Jesus. So, we need to do some easy straightforward calculating to work this out. The seven weeks and threescore and two weeks in the above verse is 69 weeks, which amounts to 483 days. Now as we know a day in Bible prophecy = a year. So this 483 days is actually 483 years. So 483 years AFTER the command (second command from Artaxerxes) to rebuild Jerusalem, Jesus would be revealed as the Messiah. This is the important bit as to know which command to choose:

If you choose the first command by Cyrus in 539BC and take away 483 years, we come to 56BC.

If you choose the second command by Artaxerxes in 457BC and take away the 484 years, we come to 27AD.

What happened in 56BC? Nothing that concerned Jesus.

What happened in 27 AD? Jesus' Baptism! He is revealed as Messaiah.

There was a gap after 49 years. That is why the 483 years is broken up with 49 and 434 years. Messiah was still born after the 483 years. The Messiah and Prince part is the final week of years. Messiah as the first half 3.5 years. Prince as the second half of 3.5 years. Except the 3.5 final years keeps getting shorter. The longer God patiently waits, the shorter is the time for the Trumpets and Thunders. The longer the church has to bring in that golden harvest.

I whole heartedly agree that the 457 B.C. decree of Artaxerxes to Ezra is the correct decree that started the countdown of 483 solar years to the appearance of Messiah the Prince. I also agree that the day of our Lord's baptism was the fulfillment of those 483 years. I'm not adamant about the dates and have no problem with the dates you proposed. Do you agree that our Lord's 3 1/2 year earthly ministry fulfilled the first half of the 70th week?

I understand you, because your teaching is not from God!! It is from man. Everything that is written here you can find it in the Bible. And without taking verses here and there to makes man teachings. Everything is exactly how Jesus Christ teaches!!
