the number of the years,
whereof the word of the LORD
came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy
years in the desolations of Jerusalem.
10 For thus saith the LORD,
be accomplished at Babylon I will
visit you, and perform my good word toward
you, in causing you to return to this place.
For I know the thoughts that
I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts
of peace, and not of evil, to give you an

happened was that Israel was punished for rebellion against the
Lord and were sent into captivity to Babylon for 70 years.
Daniel understood by reading Jeremiah's Words that the time of
their being away from Jerusalem was almost over. In light of
this, Daniel began to pray. When we get to Daniel 9:24, The
Archangel Gabriel, has already appeared to Daniel, and begins telling him
one of the most important truths contained in the Bible.
note: The Seventy Years of Israel's Captivity above in
Jeremiah, is totally different and altogether unique from The
Seventy Weeks Teaching The Archangel Gabriel says to Daniel in
the Book of Daniel - (Daniel 9:24-27) }
3 And I set
my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with
fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:
4 And I
prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O
Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to
them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;
have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly,
and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy
13 As it is
written in the law of Moses, all this evil is com upon us: yet made
we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from
our iniquities, and understand thy truth.
14 Therefore hath
the LORD watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the LORD
our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed
not his voice.
16 O LORD,
according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger
and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy
mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our
fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to all that
are about us.
therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his
supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that
is desolate, for the Lord's sake.
19 O Lord,
hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine
own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy

Gabriel Has just told
Daniel that 490 Years were determined for the Israelites.
( Each Week equals 7 Years
The first three events were
accomplished in part when Jesus died on the Cross. All six
points will be accomplished when Jesus sets up His Kingdom on
Earth after the Battle of Armageddon.
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.
So 7 weeks + 62 weeks = 69 weeks
or 483 years would transpire from a decree being issued to
rebuild Jerusalem unto Jesus The Messiah.
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.
Things are starting to get
interesting. In verse 26 it says after the 69th of the 70th
week, Jesus will be killed
(33AD) and the people of the prince ( The
Roman Soldiers ) that shall arrive will destroy the city (
Jerusalem ) and the sanctuary ( The Temple ). In 70AD Jerusalem
and the Temple met their fate.
In Zechariah 9:9 we read:
greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold,
thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly,
and riding upon a donkey, and upon a colt the foal of an donkey.
The Religious Leaders of Jesus day,
should of known from this Prophecy given to Daniel verses 24-27, the
Prophecy in Zechariah, as well as from
just seeing Jesus, that He was their Messiah.
(Also that He was to be Born in Bethlehem
and of a Virgin -- and that his Ministry would begin in Galilee, I
believe a Scripture says) The next verses are why we
celebrate Palm Sunday, the week just before Easter.
Let's keep reading, things
will keep getting more and more interesting.
On the next day much people that were
come to the feast ( Passover ), when they heard
that Jesus was
coming to Jerusalem,
of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and
cried, Hosanna: Blessed is
the King of Israel that cometh in the name of
And Jesus, when he had found a young
donkey, sat thereon; as it is written,
Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy
King cometh, sitting on an donkey's colt.
These verses written
in the Gospel of John fulfill what Zechariah had prophesied say 600
years or more earlier. 600 Years!! - Jesus was crucified
like maybe 5 days after the above took place in John chapter 12 - Which
completes 69 of the 70 Weeks of The Prophecy given to Daniel.
THIS MEANS THERE
IS ONE MORE WEEK
Just as Daniel in his day was
wise enough to understand from reading Jeremiah's words of what was
to be God's next plans, so to The religious leaders of Jesus day
ought to of known the time they were living in as well,
as well as us Today!
Ok, Let's get Jesus words
on the matter of why it is important to know what is written in
the scriptures as well as I would say just knowing the things
that are taking place in one's surroundings.
Jesus said this:
41 And when he was
come near, he beheld the city, ( Jerusalem ) and wept over
42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy
day, the things which belong unto thy
peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
43 For the days shall
come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about
thee, and compass
and keep thee in on every side,
44 And shall lay thee
even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they
shall not leave in thee
stone upon another; because thou
IN 70 AD JESUS WORDS CAME TRUE AND
CITY OF JERUSALEM MET HER FATE. WHY, DID THIS HAPPEN?
JESUS SAID BECAUSE THOU KNEWEST
NOT THE TIME OF THY VISITATION.
THE RELIGIOUS EDUCATED LEARNED MEN OF JESUS DAY, TOTALLY MESSED
UP. THEY SHOULD OF KNOWN FROM STUDY THAT JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH.
(Along with all the Miracles He did)
DANIEL THOUGH WAS SMART ENOUGH TO
UNDERSTAND THE TIMES HE WAS LIVING IN!!
LET SEE IF
WE ARE TOO!!! : )
But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need
that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly
that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety;
then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail
upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
But ye, brethren, are
not in darkness, that that day should
overtake you as a thief.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of
the day: we are not of the night, nor of

Paul is saying The World is not
going to have a clue when the End
takes place, but the Christians are
"not in darkness" to this

the words Jesus spoke about
Jerusalem back in 30AD,
pronouncing doom to the
" To Us Today, with the

and age is because

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.
"He" written in verse 27 is
the Anti-Christ. This person is written about in Daniel,
1 John, And 2 Thessalonians.
And in the latter time of their
kingdom, when the transgressors are come to
the full, a king of fierce countenance, and
understanding dark sentences, shall stand
And his power shall be mighty,
but not by his own power: and he shall
destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and
practice, and shall destroy the mighty and
the holy people.
And through his policy also
he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand;
and he shall magnify himself in his heart,
and by peace shall destroy many: he shall
also stand up against the Prince of princes;
but he shall be broken without hand.
Anti-Christ is going to finish the 70 Week Prophecy of Daniel by
signing or confirming a seven year peace deal with Israel.
Daniel 9:27 says He (The Anti-Christ) will confirm (
make strong )
( peace deal ) with many (
Israel is one of the peace parties because this prophecy pertains to
Israel - The ' Many ' could be a lot of countries like the UN,
Quartet, The EU or the Arab League ) for one week ( Seven
Seven Year peace deal will begin the 70th Week in the Prophecy given to
2 Peter 3:10
in which the heavens shall pass away with a
great noise, and the elements shall melt with
fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are
therein shall be burned up.
Today, This World Ending Prophecy Could Commence At Any Moment.
For almost 2000 years, This prophecy was
dormant -- with only 69 of the 70 weeks having been
completed. However in 1948 when Israel was declared a
Nation, returning for the first time since 70AD,
( 0- 70 AD Being the time when
the people or Religious Leaders of Jesus Day
Didn't Understand The times they were living in,
not unlike today. )
This prophecy became
WE MY FRIENDS

BUT BECAUSE ISRAEL IS, THIS PROPHECY
For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given: and the government shall be
upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The
everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no
end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to
establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for
ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
