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 did'?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.
All right, all you historians, do you know of any great men that died in 30 A.D , any great religious leaders that died at that time ?..Thats right
Jesus Christ, the real King of the Jews for as Josephius the historian said and as the authors of the Gospels wrote about, this Jesus was cut off
and crucified in the Year 30. A.D. So let's look again at what Daniel said in verse 26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut
off, BUT NOT FOR HIMSELF.
So who did He did for, thats right? He died for our sins and not for any sins of his own, for He was the only perfect man to have lived here on
earth. Amazing and its all right here in Daniel proven by a mathematical prophecy that absolutely proves that the Jews Messiah has already
come, the Savior for all people had to be cut off in 30 A.D. And He was. There is no other, and there will be no other Earthly Messiah coming
again to the Earth, even though the evil Anti-Christ will claim to be such. Jesus already came and already died for us. So now you know and
now you can prove it through scriptures and through mathematics and a simple time line.
O.K. but Daniel goes on in verse
26b 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 this is actually what happened because the people of the Prince (of the air, the Devil - Ephesians 2: 2) did come to Jerusalem and did
destroy the city under the leadership of the Roman General Titus, in 70 A.D, just 40 years after Jesus's crucifixion and resurrection. But the war
was not over way back in 70 A.D. as Titus and his army were just people of the Prince of the darkness of this world. This war continues on as
described by all the prophets, til today and will only be culminated by the coming of the Lord and then His and our return to Earth to annihilate
the Anti-Christ forces once and for all at the Battle of Armageddon. Until that time desolations, wars, famines and plaques are determined and
shall come (Mathew 24 : 5-8).
And NOW, the last Seven Years verse. Why because we are missing one week, we have accounted for 69 weeks, up until the Messiah was cut
off, and obviously there is a Gap and break in time because everlasting righteousness, obviously didn't start in 37 A.D.I mean, 7 years after the
resurrection of the Lord, He did not return and fulfill all prophecies as the great majority of them are yet to be fulfilled. So verse 27, will tell us
when this LAST SEVEN YEARS will begin
27 And he (the Anti-Christ or the Prince of the Covenant) shall confirm the Covenant with many for one week:
and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and 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
So to help in understanding this most important and most fundamental scripture in all PROPHECY for the ENDTIME, lets break it down into
smaller more understandable sections. The anti-christ forces of all the world join together (with the Lords permission to fulfill His Will) by
signing a Peace Covenant between the Mid-East parties, so that a New Temple can be built on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. This covenant is
sometimes called the holy covenant throughout Daniel 11, because it deals with a peace agreement between the Muslims and the Jews and a
way for all three major religions to share their common sacred area the Temple Mount (See Daniel 11). And according to both Daniel and John
in Revelations, there are going to be ten toes or ten kings that sign this peace covenant. ( Daniel 2: 42 ..7:24 & Revelations 17: 2)
Then the prophet Daniel says, that in the midst of the week, that would be after 3 and a half years because we have already figured out that one
week equals 7 years, then after 3 and a half years, 'he (the Anti-Christ) shall cause the sacrifice and oblation (in the soon to be built Jewish
temple (See Dan 8:13,14 class) to cease'. In other words, because the Anti-Christ , or Beast, wants the world to believe He is the Christ â€˜and
sitteth in the Temple of God, shewing himself that he is God' (2 Thessalonians 2: 4)., then he will want All people to worship Him rather than to
sacrifice to the Jewish God, or the Christian God or the Muslim God for all must worship Him or die.
And when it says, for the overspreading of abominations he (the A.C. ) shall make it desolate basically means that anything and every
abominable thing he does will be geared for separating us from the true Lord, for whether this is referring to his worldwide economic and
MARK system or an interactive voice COMPUTER system so that All will be forced into compliance to His words, they all will make those on
Earth desolate. And this desolation will continue all they way up until the CONSUMMATION , better known as the Battle of Armageddon where
the Lord and His saints take true vengeance on the A.C. and His followers. (Revelations 19).
So this all takes 3 and a half years according to our earlier calculations, and if we compare this time which Jesus called The Tribulation
(Mathew 24 : 15 ) all the way up until His coming (Mathew 24: 21-30), with scriptures in Revelations.. And lo and behold the same figure
comes up. For in Revelations 12: 6, & 14 it says we shall flee into the wilderness for 42 months or 1260 days which is of course 3 and a half
years, so we have compliance which again means we were right concerning our mathematics in the whole chapter of Daniel 9. Why do
scriptures back themselves up, because they were written by the Lord and he just used men to write them down. Consequently seeing
they came from His hand, they agree with one another and we can have absolute faith in them. (2 Tim 3: 16).
But as Daniel concludes and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate Because those that have chosen the Anti-Christ and His MARK
and have chosen to worship Him and their materialism (Revelations 13 & 17) will have to endure Tribulation or the second half of the LAST 7
YEARS. They will have to survive both the 7 trumpets of Revelations 8 & 9, but also the 7 vials of the WRATH of God described in
Revelations 16. For whosoever doesn't fall humbly upon the ROCK called Jesus shall have the ROCK fall upon them. (Daniel 2: 34)
So choose Jesus today (See Salvation class) and survive by the Love and Grace of the Lord through the LAST SEVEN
YEARS and onto into Eternity forever.
Love in Jesus
