Daniel 9 the 'Last 7 Years'


As the Lord himself said,Whosoever readeth, let him understand what Daniel the prophet said about the LAST Days. (Mathew
24: 15  ¦..). In other words, if we want to know what the Lord will be doing in the ENDTIME, we have to study and learn what
His prophet Daniel said about the 'LAST SEVEN YEARS'.

This basic outline is all wrapped up in a few verses in Daniel Chapter Nine. So if you open up your Bibles, and hopefully they
will be King James Version Bibles if you are to truly be able to cross reference what is said in the spirit to the rest of the Bible.
Anyway, go to Chapter 9, verse 24. I'll write down the exact verse as we go along and put my comments in parenthesis. But this
is shown graphically on the
Messianic Timeline

24 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 prophesy, and
to anoint the most Holy.

So no matter how you look at it, for all these things to be accomplished it definitely has to be the End of things as we know it
and the Lord of Lords has to have returned to straighten things out. Why because we certainly dont have an end of sin and
iniquity in the world today, and we certainly dont have everlasting righteous reigning in todays courts nor institutions. Besides,
without the Lords 2nd return, how can there be peace on earth without the Prince of Peace who will bring in everlasting
righteousness. So until He gets anointed as the Rightful Heir and Rightful Ruler of this wicked world, His prophecies through
ALL of his prophets have not been fulfilled nor His vision completed.

Therefore as this beautiful mathematical prophecy states there will be seventy (70) weeks determined upon us, his people
(spiritual Israel) and upon his holy city, (the City of David ¦Jerusalem), before it gets cleansed.

25 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 (7) weeks, and three score (3 times 20 = 60) and two weeks. (Making a grand total of  7 + 60 +
2 =  69 weeks).

O.K. Were going  up until the Messiah, or the promised Savior for He was prophesied about from the very beginning by all
including Adam and all his descendants, for He was called 'The Son of Man', our Redeemer because He was the Promised One to
come that would save us from our original sins. So who was this Messiah and when did he come?

Well, as Daniel is told, the 70 weeks start from the going forth of the commandment to restore and build Jerusalem. Yet Daniel is
speaking in about 534 B.C. at a time when the Lords people have been scattered and many of them taken into CAPTIVITY to
Babylon, as was the case with Daniel himself. The Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem had been destroyed by the conquering army
of Nebacanezar, the King of Babylon in 586 B.C., and the whole Temple Mount area in Jerusalem was in shambles. And it was
to stay that way, all the way up until the time of Artaxerses  King of the Medes, because His father Darius the Mede had
defeated Beltezazar the son of Nebancanezar.  For it took until 454. B.C. before Artaxerxes yielded to the request of Nehemiah
asking the king to allow him and others to return and rebuild the city of their father selpuchre and their temple, back in Judah.  
(Nehemiah 2:5).




So according to Daniel, this first period of time from the going forth of this commandment to rebuild would take seven (7) weeks,
until the street shalt be built again and the wall, even in troublous times. Why did it take so long, simply because while Nehemiah
and his men were building the wall and city, they were also having to fight off attacks from those that didn?t want them to finish
the completion of the Lord's wall.. (Nehemiah 4; 7,8). Yet they accomplished their task in 405 B.C, 49 years after beginning. So
let's see, if  7 weeks equaled 49 years, mathematically that would mean that one week in Daniel's prophecy would be equal to 7
years.

See this GRAPHICALLY at
MESSIAH TIME LINE

But let's check, it to make sure. and lo and behold the original Hebrew word used here in the Old Testament was 'Shebua'.  And
the meaning of Shebua is seven. So just as the Lord created everything in seven days or what we call a week even today, this
word 'Shebua' meant seven. And if you take seven shuba's that would make 7 x 7 or 49 years.

Great, so we have a match, and all is perfectly matching both history, language and mathematics, as the Lord fulfilled his
never-failing Word. .So now let's take the second time period, which Daniel says takes three score and two weeks until the
Messiah Shall be cut off.. That's 62 weeks or 62 x 7 equals 434 years from the finishing of the wall in Jerusalem. So we add 432
years onto 405 B.C. but because the time line Before Christ went downward towards zero and then onward positively as the
years of A.D. passed, we subtract 434 from 405 meaning we have a difference of  29. But hold everything, there was no year 0,
whether B.C. or A.D. so let's add one more year to our positive number of 29 making our projected cut off date for the Messiah
to be 30 A.D.
