To Make An End Of Sins...
Daniel 9:24-27 KJV.
“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 prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy”.
“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 weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times”.
“And after threescore and two 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”.
“And he shall confirm THE covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the 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 desolate”. Daniel 9:24-27 KJV
To understand this in its original language and setting is absolutely no small thing. There are several theories on this but hopefully you will put them aside for the time being to see what I’m saying here:
1. The word ‘weeks’ in Hebrew is ‘Shabuwa’. It means a period of seven, whether it be seven days or seven years. Therefore, 70 prophetic weeks means either 70 seven-day periods, or 70 seven-year periods.
2. There are 30 days in a month, and 360 days in a year according to the Lunar based Jewish calendar. So when converting dates and times to today’s solar based calendar, you need to use a factor of 360 divided by 365.25 = .9856
3. Now, there has been more than one Biblical command to rebuild Jerusalem, and some even cite the 1947 United Nations Resolution 181 as a ‘commandment’ to restore and rebuild Jerusalem. But only one command specifically included the ‘wall’ as the angel Gabriel told Daniel.
You can find these Biblical accounts in Ezra and Nehemiah of the Jewish Torah, or Holy Bible.
King Cyrus gave proclamation to rebuild the Temple in about 536BC. King Darius reaffirmed Cyrus’ decree in about 520 BC. In the 7th year of his reign, King Artaxerxes gave the decree authorizing Ezra to restore government in Jerusalem, which was about 457BC. And 13 years later, in the 20th year of Artaxerxes reign, he commissioned Nehemiah to oversee rebuilding the city and especially the ‘wall’ and gates. This happened in about 444BC. The first two decrees were about rebuilding the Temple, the third was about reestablishing Government, and the forth was in fact about what the angel told Daniel. And, it was built in very troublous times. So much so, the people often worked with one hand because the other hand held a weapon, according to the writings of Josephus.
4. This period of time from 444BC until 70AD when the city and temple were in fact destroyed, accomplished many extremely significant things, as foretold by the angel Gabriel. They are:
A) to finish transgression
B) to make and end of sins
C) to make reconciliation for iniquity
D) to bring in everlasting righteousness
E) to seal up the vision and the prophecy
F) to anoint the most Holy
G) Messiah killed (Hebrew: karath – to cut off)
H) City and Temple destroyed
5. The first seven ‘shabuwa’s (7 year periods), takes us from 444BC – (7x7x.9856) 48.3 years =396BC. This is when the Jewish prophet Malachi was inspired to write. It was the last prophetic writing and is the last book in the Old Testament of the Bible. The ‘vision and prophecy has been sealed’ up ever since, amongst the Jewish people. (so ‘E’ is complete.)
6. The next 62 ‘shabuwa’s’ look like this: 396BC – (62x7x.9856) 427.7 years = 32AD. This is when Messiah (Yeshua ) was killed or ‘cut-off’. (so ‘G’ is complete)
7. That leaves one more Shabuwa to account for. The 70th one. (The one many confusing debates are over) The angel Gabriel never said the 70 shabuwa’s were consecutive, or a steady 490 year period, he said 70 ‘weeks’ or ‘periods’ of 7. John the baptist's dad, Zechariah the priest, learned the hard way to not question Gabriel's accuracy. So when Gabriel laid out the timeline the way he did ( 7 weeks + 62 weeks + 1 week) it was on purpose.
Everyone who studies this seems to agree there’s a gap or delay after Jesus was killed. Many believe the last week is yet to come, others say it has already happened. There is much confusion over this last 7 year ‘week’ because it's part of a much, much bigger lie. The angel’s arrangement of information about the 'weeks' is not random but intentional, just like his comment about rebuilding the wall. Without the comment about the ‘wall’ scholars could argue to their deathbed over this. But the wall tells it all...
Everyone seems to agree that this last 7 year period culminates with the city and the sanctuary being destroyed as it says, but many tie this to a third Temple and an upcoming 7 year ‘covenant’ being confirmed. They add weight to their position by saying The Most Holy hasn't yet been anointed as Gabriel said to Daniel, suggesting that the Temple needs to be rebuilt for that to be fulfilled.
Someone changed one word in Daniel 9: "the" was changed to "a". Titus confirmed "the" Jewish covenant of Sacrifices and Oblations. This has kept many waiting to see the third Temple erected as a mile-marker of this last ‘shabuwa’. Because of this, people have not rightly divided Jesus' words in the gospels about our last days, and many have tried to weave this upcoming 7 year period into the last days today... in error. This 'idea' requires that there be a third Temple built and destroyed again, then built again so Jesus returns to a Temple that is standing, on Temple Mount, in Jerusalem so that the Most Holy Place can finally be Anointed as Gabriel listed. Which is almost laughable....
The last ‘shabuwa’ began in 63AD, and the sacrifice and the oblation ceased halfway through 66AD because the Roman Prince Titus closed the siege wall enough to stop the supply of animals for their sacrifices. (See Josephus Wars of the Jews). The bottom line is that everything the angel told Daniel would happen, did. The daily sacrifice stopped halfway through the 7year period. The temple was and is to this day destroyed. Everyone can agree on that. There has never been another Jewish prophet write by God’s lead since Malachi, so the vision and the prophecy is sealed up – as offensive as that might be to some folks who are Jewish. And, someone was killed on that cross. History doesn’t dispute that. What most people don’t know is that after Jesus’ side was speared to verify his death, something very important happened. His blood ran down the cross he was nailed to, then down the stake hole that the cross was set into, then down the crack in the rocks that formed after the earth quaked, and finally dripped onto something…
Are you familiar with the name Ron Wyatt? Mr. Wyatt and his sons discovered something after excavating for what must have seemed like forever, just to the right of the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem. It was the Ark of the Covenant. More specifically, the blood of Jesus dripped on the Ark of the Covenant, which ‘just so happened’ to have been buried in a cave far below, centuries earlier. Inside this Ark, is a jar of the manna or bread that fell from the sky to feed the Israelites, a stick which is Aaron’s staff that had budded, and the stone tablets which the ten commandments are written on. His blood literally ‘anointed’ the Most Holy or Mercy Seat when it dripped onto it, which fulfills the list that Gariel gave to Daniel. The Ark of the Covenant used to sit in the Most Holy Place in the Temple of God over 600 years prior to this day, so the blood dripped onto the ‘legal binding agreement’ or Law.
God had said to Cain that Able's "blood cried out from the ground". Able's blood dried and is dead in the soil today, but what if Jesus' blood is still alive there is Jerusalem? What do you think Jesus' blood would cry out to the Father saying everyday? Redeemed... Forgiven.... it's finished...
After the discovery of the Ark, a sample of what they thought was dried blood, was taken to a lab in Jerusalem, reconstituted for a certain number of hours, and then analyzed. The Israeli lab technicians were shocked to see the human blood is alive, and only has 24 chromosomes. Normally, dried blood is dead blood, and people typically have 23 chromosomes from each parent, not 24 total. So this is really something unique. More importantly it is documented, photographed and awaiting it’s time to be shared with the general public as proof and a final warning to the world.
Take a minute if you need it… I know that just about knocked me out of my chair when I first learned of it. Question: Is the blood still called history when it’s still alive?
So lets have another look at the list the angel Gabriel gave Daniel:
-the vision and prophecy have been sealed since 396BC.
-The Ark of the Covenant got anointed.
-City and Temple destroyed.
-the 70 shabuwas from the going forth of the command in 444BC fits.
Which means, if all this is true, then the rest of that list was fulfilled also…
-Transgression is finished.
-Sin has ended.
-Reconciliation for iniquity has been achieved.
-Everlasting righteousness has been brought in.
So what’s left to fulfill on that list? ..........Nothing............
Yet, modern day pharisees sit in the seat of Moses, as it says, judging by what they see and hear. They walk in the reproach of the Jews, adding sin to sin, and they put their christian label on it. "It is a disgrace, declares the Lord and I am sending forth rain now to reprove it". Hallelujah!
When we read Jeremiah 31:29-35 and Hebrews 8:7-13 about the heart and details of the New Covenant God put in place through His Son, we begin to see some discrepancies in most Christian circles.
Have you heard of "generational sins, or curses" ? God told Jeremiah, "In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge. But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge". *** This directly refutes the doctrine of generational sin, or the curse thereof, yet it is preached in most Christian circles...
God told Jeremiah, "But this shall be the covenant I will make with the house of Israel; after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people." "And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more." *** The Glory of God placed into the spirit of His Son, sown into people at birth is how God puts His law of love in our inward parts, and writes it on our hearts. This precious treasure of the living God is within people, so that is why God said, "they shall all know me", and as Paul said, "do not look at people as though they are worldly"......... "Because the seed has been planted, declares the Lord. And you are now aware that by your beliefs you are either working with Satan to cover this amazing thing I did, or you are working with Me to override the enemy and help people to grow what I placed in them, declares the Lord"......
There were several paragraphs that followed, but after that quickened Word, I was told to delete all the rest of it....
