Daniel 9 :24 "Seventy weeks (70 Periods of 7) are determined upon the people (Israel) and upon thy holy
city (Jerusalem), 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 Holy."
(God’s Covenant / Promise)
Jesus' 1st Coming:
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 (69)
weeks; or 69
periods of 7’s in other versions:
the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times."
1st Coming Timing & Date Calculations:
According to Daniel 9 :24-25 a period of 69 7-year periods, or 483 Prophetic Years
(69x7) would pass until the coming of the Messiah. Biblical prophetic years are 360

(Sivan is the 3rd month of the “Biblical Calendar”)
483 prophetic years = 476.06766 Gregorian

42 months as equivalent
to 3.5 years or 1260 days.

JESUS' 2ND COMING PROPHECY
"Seventy weeks (70 Periods of 7) are determined upon the people and upon thy holy city (Jerusalem), 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 Holy."
at Rev. 16:17-21, 17:1 & Ezk. 38:18, 39:6,8,11-12, 21)
Jesus' 1st Coming:
Vs 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 69 periods of 7’s."
Vs. 27: "And He
shall CONFIRM* the covenant for one week (aka 1 period of 7): and in the midst of the week He
shall cause the sacrifice and the offerings 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."
Vs. 27: (Amplified) "AND He (God) shall CONFIRM* (strengthen) the (His) Covenant / Promise (of 70 periods of 7
the people & the city - Jerusalem) with many for one week (1 period of 7)." (Only God can confirm the last 70th
7 of vs 24) (69 -7s of vs 25 related to Jesus' 1st coming)
and in the midst
of the week (7yr. period) He (God)
shall cause (allow) the sacrifice
** (sacrifices of praise; i.e. burnt offerings - not blood sacrifices for sin) to cease
(thru His permissive Will, allowing the antichrist’s activities to cause "Tribulation" *** during Seals 1-6; Rev. 6 & Mth. 24:5-29-31), and for the overspreading of abominations
he (antichrist) shall make it desolate, even until the consummation ("Day of the Lord & His Wrath" i.e. End of the Age), and that determined (God’s wrath
upon breaking the 7th seal, and opening the Scroll listing the 7 trumpets and 7 bowls of God's WRATH) shall be poured
upon the desolate ( i.e. the unrepentant during "tribulation").
For further details see: End of the Age
This all, of course, goes back to include the original hermeneutical position of defining "Tribulation'
& "Wrath" as not being synonymous!
If hermeneutic principles are correctly applied, "Tribulation"
and "Wrath" are not synonymous.
The rapture comes after tribulation, but before the “Day of the Lord and His wrath”,as
clearly stated by Jesus Himself in Matt. 24:5-31 and as supported by many other Scriptures such as Rev. 6 and Joel 2:31.
efforts are to stop "Praise & Commitment to God" sacrificial offerings, NOT Blood Sacrifices, already atoned
for by Jesus.
2 of 4
Sacrificial Offerings Are Praise Offerings to God, Not Sin:
Burnt Offerings: Represents complete
submission to God's will.
Ezek. 46:1-2, 12 See also Lev.
1:3-5 (i.e. Jesus)
Peace Offering: Expresses gratitude
to God & has nothing to do with sin.
Lev. 7:11-12, 15
Sin through ignorance of the law - an offense to God, Lev. 4:2, 13
or Guilt Offering:
chapters 5 & 6
Regarding Daniel 9 :27:
shall confirm the covenant” (of 70 periods of
Confirm is from the Hebrew word “higbir” (Hiph'il form of the verb Gabar) meaning “to confirm (a covenant), to strengthen”.
Hebrew / Greek Lexicon and Hebrew / Greek / English Interlinear Bible
However, the New American Standard (NASB) incorrectly translates “higbir” to the English verb: “to make” (“karat / poieo” in Hebrew / Greek)
rather; than “to confirm” or “to strengthen”.
NASB infers there was NO pre-existing covenant “to confirm” or “to strengthen”.
This incorrect translation by the NASB literally changes Scripture, to it’s detriment.
make" is NOT synonymous with "to confirm".
NASB translation “to
make” is used heretically to infer the antichrist “makes” a “covenant with the people and the city of Jerusalem”, and consequently,
causes major eschatological interpretation consequences!
This is satan’s counterfeit
at it’s best, distorting God’s prophecy of His second coming! Unfortunately, Pre-Tribulation
theology uses this translation in justifying the antichrist “making” a covenant with Israel at
the beginning of the 7-year ‘tribulation’ period.
It is imperative that
a correct translation ‘to confirm’ or ‘to strengthen’ a covenant be used to show the importance
of God’s continued covenant of the full “70
periods of 7s’ with “the people and the CITY OF JERUSALEM”.
Note the ‘confirmation’
or ‘strengthening’ of the entire covenant includes the ability to rebuild
“Jerusalem”, and applies equally to both periods (69 7’s & the last 70th 7).
Therefore the ability to rebuild Jerusalem is a key “sign” related to both the 1st
& 2nd prophecies related to Jesus' coming!
==================*** Tribulation: Reference Matt. 24:8,21,29
and Rev. 6:9 7:9,14
Peirasmos, Peirasai: Tribulation / Trials / Temptations /
to Test, to Try, to Tempt.
Thlipsis: Tribulation / Distress / Affliction / Persecution
/ ‘Peirasmos’ & ‘Thlipsis
/ Thlupsis’ described in Matthew 24:5 – 29 is also concurrently described by John in Revelation chapter 6 for the first 6 seals.
Dictionary of Biblical Words by W.E. Vine combined commentary on 2 Peter 2:9 and Rev. 3:10-12 ‘Peirasmos’
"The verb is used of testing as permitted by God, and of the believer as one who should
be in the realization of his own helplessness and his dependence upon God.
noun is used of trials with beneficial purposes and effect, also of trials
or temptations Divinely permitted or sent, i.e. 2 Peter 2:9 “to
prove” or “to try” and in Rev. 3:10 'trial or temptation'."
Wrath: Reference Rev. 6:17
Ebrah / Orges
(Hebrew / Greek):
/ Anger / Indignation / Vengeance
Wrath translated from Hebrew word “Ebrah” (Orges in Greek); Strong’s #5678 connotes the “overflowing fury of God”; and is only
used in conjunction with "Day of the Lord" wrath after the 7
th seal in Rev. 8 is broken, and the scroll of God’s ‘wrath’ is opened. “Wrath” of God / Jesus, listed in Revelation Chapters 8 –16, is then poured out in Judgment upon the unrepentant.

Tribulation to Rapture to Wrath

Pre Wrath Rapture ESCHATOLOGY SUMMARY
coming Prophecy Fulfilled:
“Jerusalem Shall Be Trodden Down, UNTIL
The Times Of The Gentiles Be Fulfilled.” Luke 21:24
Israel became a nation + 70 years to the completion of all things: 1948
+ 70 = 2019
- marks completion at Jubilee.
In the 1967
war, Israel regained control of Jerusalem. 1967
+ 50 years to Jubilee
A valid “sign” of the “end of the age” of Jesus 2nd coming for the following reason:
"Seventy weeks (70
Periods of 7) are
determined upon the people and upon thy holy city (Jerusalem)."
God’s ‘covenant’ with both, the people and the “holy city”
(Jerusalem) could not have been confirmed without the existence of both Israel, AND Israel’s control of Jerusalem!
This ALSO correlates with the following
3 sequences of events:
1967 + 40
year generation + 10 years “Days of Repentance / Affliction” from the Feast of Trumpets
to the Feast of Atonement; Culminating
at the Year of Jubilee on the 50th year.
Secondly: 1967+50 to Jubilee (7x7+1=50)
Sabbatical 7-year periods, including the last 7-year Tribulational period (aka 7 periods of 7 + 1 (Jubilee) culminating at
the Year of Jubilee in the 50th year
Thirdly: it correlates with
the period of time between the Feast of Passover aka the Crucifixion, and the Feast of Weeks aka Pentecost:
7-weeks of 7-days plus one day; (7 x 7 + 1 = 50).
Additional Information See: “Last Days Prophetic Data & Calendar”.
Lunar Calendar Interpretations
Dan. 9: 24: Seventy weeks (70 periods
of 7) are determined upon the people and upon thy holy city (Jerusalem), 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 Holy.
Jesus' 1st Coming:
Vs 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 weeks, and threescore
and two (69) weeks;or 69 periods of 7’s in other versions: the street shall be built again,
and the wall, even in troublesome times. Vs.
26: And after threescore and two (62) 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.
Jesus 1st coming:
According to Daniel 9:24-25
a period of 69 7-year periods,
or 483 Prophetic Years (69x7)
would pass until the coming of the Messiah. Biblical
prophetic years are 360
days long. See Rev.
11:2-3, 12:6 and 13:5
which indicate 42 months as equivalent to 3.5 years or 1260 days. See also Dan.
10: Jesus' triumphant entry
Nissan 14: Passover / Crucifixion
(Plus 7 weeks of 7 days + 1 day = 50; aka Pentecost)
Nissan 16: Jesus' Resurrection
Sivan 6: Pentecost
(Nissan 1 plus 66 days)
69 periods of 7 years;
69 x 7 = 483 prophetic years
483 years x 360 days per prophetic year = 173,880 prophetic calendar days.
"King Artexerxes decreed in the month of Nissan, the order to restore and rebuild Jerusalem." (Neh.
2:1-8). This may have been on the 1st
day of the Jewish month Nissan in 445 BC. 173,880
prophetic calendar days later is 30
A.D. as prophesied; includes year zero.
(A.D. dates adjusted to our Gregorian
calendar of 365.242 days per astronomical year.* 173,880 / 365.2422 = 476 years and 25 days; Nissan 25, 32 AD. Gregorian
calendar years; 445 + 30 = 476)
with Leap Years Interpretation – Possibly Correct
Lunar Cycle Calculations = 477 years + 50 days.
1 leap month of 29 days is added 7 times over a 19-year cycle. This equals 203 days.
– 19 year cycle x 354 days per lunar cycle = 6,726 days total
1 leap month (29 days) x 7 per 19-year cycle
= 203 days total
A total 6924 days per 19-year cycle including Adar II as a leap month of 29 days.
By adding 7 leap months per
19-year cycle = 6,924 days per 19-year cycle.
173,880 prophetic days divided by 6,924 days per 19-year lunar cycle,
including leap months equals 25.11265 cycles of 19 years 6,924 days per 173,880 days.
6924 days per 19-year cycle x
25.11265 = 173,880 days
6924 / 19 = 364.42105 solar days per year
25.11265 cycles of 19 years = 477.140 years at 364.42105 days / yr; + .140 year
equals 50 days; 477 years & 50 days.
25.11265 cycles x 6924 days (per cycle of 19 years)
= 173,880 days
A lunar cycle applied to the prophetic days of 173,880 = 477
years and 50 days
BC + 477years + 50 days = 31
AD + 1 month + 20 days ( including 1 year for the zero year)
SIR ROBERT ANDERSON calculations of Daniel 9:24-26 70-Weeks Prophecy
Regarding the first 69 Periods
of 7 is IN ERROR:
According to his own conclusion 173,880 DAYS, equate to 476 Gregorian calendar years plus 25 days.
Daniel’s prophecy was
476 Gregorian calendar years plus 25 days
from the time the order was given by King Artexerxes in the month of Nissan, unto the coming of the Messiah per Neh. 2:1,8.
However, with, Passover on the
14th day of Nissan, 25 days prior
to Passover is Adar 15; obviously
NOT in the month of Nissan. In other-words, Artexerxes would have been giving his order on Adar 15, NOT in the month
of Nissan per Neh. 2:1,8.
Put another way: Nissan 1, 445 BC + 476 Gregorian calendar years
+ 25 days = Nissan 25, 30 AD - A date of no significance.
Therefore SIR ROBERT ANDERSON calculations of Daniel
9:24-26 is IN ERROR by erroneously subtracting 25 days due to a lunar moons adjustment; which consequently is no longer 173,880
days per Daniel's prophecy.
Biblical year is a Lunar (moon) Calendar 354 days long. The Biblical Calendar for feasts is initiated by the first
sliver of a new moon, and marks the beginning of a month, which is always a sabbath, and the 1st day of the month
(even when a leap month is added); thereby determining when the feasts will be held per Leviticus Chapter 23. Consequently, the
feasts always fall on the same day of the week every year.
See “Feasts Calendars”. Note: The Biblical calendar year spans the Gregorian calendar years from the
first month of Nissan; in approximately April or May.
In contrast, the Jewish
Calendar year averages 363.3 days per year; which is comprised of 12 lunar months with 29.530573496 astronomical
days per month; for a 354-day year, except on leap years where an extra month is added in to adjust to solar reckoning:
To approximately adjust to a solar calendar, a leap month called Adar II comprised of 29 days, is added on:
the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th, 14th and 17th year based upon a
19 year cycle. This calendar is often (incorrectly) called a “lunar /solar” calendar. Unfortunately
it is neither, or a correct hybrid.
In contrast, a Solar Calendar is 365.2422 days
compared to today’s Gregorian
Calendar of 30.43685 astronomical days, per month, average. Note: the Gregorian calendar
replaced the earlier, less accurate Julian calendar.
Jewish Calendaring of Feasts today: Today’s Jewish calendars superimpose
a 354-day lunar calendar (Including a leap month Adar II) onto the Gregorian calendar of 365.2422 days per year.
Consequently, the feasts then fall on a different day each year, rather than on the same day when based on
a lunar calendar; as God had ordained in Leviticus 23.
Christian Calendaring of
as the “Feast of Passover”; aka Crucifixion of Jesus”, or
the “Feast of First Fruits”; aka “Easter, or the “Feast of Weeks”; aka Pentecost: The Christian calendaring of these feasts is also inaccurate. This is
due to the overlaying of a lunar calendar, on top of a modern Gregorian calendar, then purposefully adjusting the feasts to
fall on predetermined days; i.e. the Crucifixion on Passover
to be on a Friday.
In contrast to
this is the Biblical Prophetic Calendar of 360 days
per year. See Rev. 11:2-3, 12:6, 13:5 and Dan. 12:7-12, which indicate 42 months as equivalent to 3.5 years
or 1260 days; 360 days per year (also used by Babylonians). This is the calendar used in prophecy
of Jesus 1st coming in Daniel 9:24-26, then reconciled with the other calendaring
Prophetically When 1 DAY =
1 YEAR Or 1,000 YEARS:
1 DAY = 1 YEAR Prophetically, when applied to man:
Prophecy is related to man’s redemption,
such as Daniel 9:24-27 69 7’s of days being 483 prophetic years, or
the 10 Days (years) of Awe / Repentance between the Feast of Trumpets &
Feast of Atonement, or the corresponding 10 days of tribulation in Rev. 2:8-11
"Seventy weeks (KJV; 70 periods of 7,
NIV) are determined ..." Daniel 9:24
have appointed you each day for a year." Ezek. 4:6
the number of the days in which you searched the land, forty days, each day
for a year …"
"For the day
of the LORD'S vengeance,
the year of atonement
for the controversy of Zion." Isa. 34:8
"To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort
all that mourn .." Isa. 61:2
"For the day of vengeance in Mine heart, and the year of My redeemed is come." Is.
DAY = 1,000 YEARS
prophetically, when applied to God:
Jubilee / Millennial Kingdom:
“One day with the Lord
is as a thousand years, and a thousand
years as one day . . . we, according too His promise, look for new heavens and
a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness." 2 Peter 3:8 & 13
Just as 6 days of the week were meant for man
and the 7th day (Sabbath) was meant for honoring God, so also are
the 6 Feasts related to man’s redemption and the 7th Feast of Tabernacles
related to an eternity with God. This follows the logic of when 1 day is prophetically speaking of 1 year
(e.g. Ezek. 4:6) when
referring to man’s redemption, or when 1 day is prophetically speaking of 1,000 years (2 Peter 3:8 & 13) when referring
to God as with Jubilee / Millennial Kingdom.
Note the Year
of Jubilee / Millennial Kingdom starts on the 11th day of the 7th month (the day following
the Feast of Atonement / Judgment on the 10th day). The Feast of Tabernacles is not until the 15th day. Therefore, it could possibly
be another 4,000 years after the Millennial Kingdom to the Feast of Tabernacles.
This possibility can be seen in Rev.
20 which states that satan will be released after 1,000 years of Millennial Kingdom, then a Gog / Magog battle
will occur, then the "Great White Throne Judgment", and finally completed with the Feast of Tabernacles i.e. a "New Heavens & New Earth".
