The 70 Weeks of Daniel Prophecy

(Daniel 9:24) “…Seventy Weeks are determined upon the people and the holy city, to finish the transgression, and make an end to all sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and bring an everlasting righteousness…”

The 70 Weeks of Daniel Prophecy – This most famous 70 weeks of Daniel prophecy, was given to the prophet concerning God’s future dealings with the Children of Israel. It’s divided into two time periods;  a 69 week period and a future 1 week period. In these passages, the keyword used for a week, is the Hebrew word ‘shabua,’ which is translated, as any time period of 7 so….are you ready?

The 69 weeks – The 70 weeks of Daniel began with the only decree given for the rebuilding of Jerusalem, by King Artaxerxes  to Nehemiah, which dates in the Jewish month of Nissan 445 BC. Using the prophetic calendar of 360 days (which equal 12, 30 day months) and 7 years representing 1 week,  this makes a total of 483 years (7 x 69 = 483). This means that from Artaxerxe’s decree in 445 BC, there’s  a 483 year (69 weeks)  time period with the end of 69th week, landing on Palm Sunday,  just before the crucifixion of Christ.

The final 70th week – From then on, salvation turned to the Gentiles (us), with Israel being blinded in part during this age, leaving this gap between the crucifixion of Christ and the beginning of the 70th week which will be, the seven year trial and tribulation period. This is when God will deal fully with Israel once again and fulfil His Words to the prophet Daniel. “…to finish the transgression, and to make an end to all sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and bring an everlasting righteousness…” …before the second coming of His dear son, Jesus Christ.

THE TRIBULATION SOLDIER – This final 70th week will be the focus of our 1 million word book 9 in the Tribulation Soldier series, where Matt and his friends will see first hand the judgements of God, the activities of the anti-christ and the book of revelations played out perfectly from God’s Great Word.
