Christ and His Ministry the Fulfillment of Daniel 70 Weeks

Daniel's 70 weeks is distorted by those who wish to use the prophesy to postpone the other prophesies of the Old Testament and the New Testament. The anti Christ becomes a future man in the false Dispensationalist teaching. The battle of Armageddon becomes a future event rather than continuing prophesy being fulfilled through the behavior of the continuing Roman Empire as explained at www.newcovenanttheology.com/2013/02/gog-and-magog-explained.html. The establishment of the New and Spiritual Israel is perverted by Dispensationalism and becomes a future literal Israel instead of the glory of the present invisible and sparsely populated church. All these Dispensationalist perversions are aimed to lead the non elect to their destruction. Here is the truth about the 70 weeks of Daniel:

The prophecy in Daniel 9:24-26 is a very important prophecy. This prophecy was given so that the Jews and the Gentiles would know the Messiah.

Seventy weeks are determined For your people and for your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, And to anoint the Most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem, until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. And after the sixty-two weeks, Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined.'"
The restoration of Jerusalem is found in Nehemiah. According to the scriptures, the command to rebuild Jerusalem was given in the "month of Nisan and the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes". This king was the King Artaxerxes Longimanus of Persia. The day when he gave the command to rebuild Jerusalem was March 14, 445 B.C.

If you add the days between March 14, 445 B.C. and April 6, 32 A.D. you get 173,880 days. On April 6, 32 A.D., Christ made a triumphant entrance into Jerusalem on a donkey, and was received as the Messiah on that Palm Sunday, which fits the Daniel prophesy to the day, from March 14, 445 B.C. As you can see, 69 weeks, times 7 times 360 days (Babylonian Calendar) equals exactly 173,880 days. The prophesy of Daniel is foolproof regarding the establishment of Christ as the King of Israel.

Daniel said in 9:25: "Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem, until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times." Since the Babylonian calendar was a 360 day calendar, this figure is an amazing fulfillment of prophesy.
Even the Gregorian calendar gives the same number of days. Using a 365 day calendar a total of 476 years divided by four (a leap year every four years) gives 119 additional days. However, three days must be subtracted from 119 because centennial years are not leap years, though every 400th year is a leap year. So then 173,740 days + 116 days equals 173,880!
Of course the teaching that the extra week, the 70th week is postponed is a dispensationalist teaching that denies the understanding of scripture. It is most likely that Jesus confirmed the covenant, ie preached for 3 and 1/2 years, then the gospel went to the Jews for 3 and 1/2 years, and then went to the Gentiles as well. That was the fulfillment of the 70 weeks of Daniel.
And of course in 70 AD the temple was destroyed fulfilling the prophecy that the prophets and Jesus made regarding the destruction of Jerusalem, the great tribulation, and the fulfillment of all things, except, of course, the continuing fulfillment of war waged on the elect by Gog and Magog and of course, Christ's Second Coming (no secret rapture).

So, to recap, the prophets were on the same page and the prophecies concerning Christ came true:


173,880 days is the exact number of days from the rebuilding of Jerusalem to Christ entering Jerusalem in triumph on the donkey as prophesied by the prophet centuries earlier. The donkey is spoken of by Zechariah as well:

Zechariah 9:9 New International Version (NIV)
The Coming of Zion’s King
9 Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey

Two prophets centuries earlier, Daniel and Zechariah, prophesied about Christ independently, and they support each other, both prophesies came true.

Other prophesies came true as well:

The Bible tells us that the Messiah would be…
• Born in Bethlehem The Jewish prophet said so in Micah 5:2
• Born a descendant of David The Jewish prophet said so in 2 Samuel 7:12-13
• Live a sinless life The Jewish prophet said so in Isaiah 53:9
• Do miracles like Moses The Jewish prophet said so in Deuteronomy 18:18
• Enter Jerusalem on a donkey The Jewish prophet said so in Zechariah 9:9
• Arrive after King David died The Jewish prophet said so in 2 Samuel 7:12-13
• A rejected man The Jewish prophet said so in Isaiah 53:3
• Die as a substitute for others The Jewish prophet said so in Isaiah 53:5
• Rise from the dead The Jewish prophet said so in Isaiah 53:10

And yet the non elect cannot believe, even knowing these facts. It is all of grace, my friends.

Revelation Timeline

This timeline of the Book of Revelation, written after the destruction of the temple in 70 AD, was originally posted at this static page on this blog entitled Essential Articles/END TIMES:



Revelation

Here is a brief timeline regarding the Book of Revelation. Clearly, the book of Revelation was written after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. The real destruction was to follow.

And clearly also, most of the prophets who were killed were killed in Jerusalem. The Great City clearly refers to Jerusalem multiple times. However, the destruction of the beast does not. I am putting this timeline out there. I believe it has merit and makes more sense than other timelines, especially Dispensationalist timelines which are created out of thin air:

1. Rev chapter 18 speaks to the destruction of Jerusalem but was written after the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. It could speak to the completed destruction after 70 AD, in 135 AD, when Jerusalem was literally ploughed under. In 70 AD, 30,000 He…

Predestined to Hell

The human mind cannot always take in the sobering reality of predestination. We who are predestined are greatful, but sorrowful. We know many we love are not so predestined. It hurts. Paul said he could wish that he would suffer if his kinsmen would be saved.

But it is also that same Apostle Paul who told the truth in Romans chapter 9, that some vessels were created for special use, like fancy kitchenware, and others were created for menial use, to be thrown away.

The truth is, sin is created by those who are not kept from it. The devil and Adam created sin in their acts of defiance, having been permitted to have a will apart from the will of God. They used that will to create sin. It is always that way. Only God is good, and only His Will is sinless.

So then, there are a few predestined to heaven, through God given faith. And there are many, including many who believed in predestination like Calvin and the Protestants, who are predestined to hell. They were created for menial use onl…

God Hates Master Race Idea. Donald Trump Embraces It

1. God hates the master race concept. Christians believe that Satan works among all leaders of the physical nations. However, the doctrine that is most Satanic is the one that proposes there is a master race. Donald Trump believes he is part of a master race, that he has the master race gene, through possessing German Blood. This is pure Satan. If you vote for Satan, it is your right, but you are putting the nation in grave danger. 

So Trump said from the video:

A. He has a certain gene. 
B. He has a winning gene.
C. He has German Blood.
D. He has the right genes. (Others must have the wrong genes.)

If you put the three of these statements together, along with a statement from his exwife that he kept a copy of Hitler's Mein Kampf on his nightstand, there is no other conclusion than he believes he has the master race gene. There is no other possible conclusion.

...The ideology of Nazism was based upon the conception of the Aryan race or Germanic peoples being a master …
