Future Daniel 70th Week: It's a Vatican Plot

This is fulfilled when Jesus gave His Life & blood on the Cross for the sins of the World.

Isaiah 53:5 - But He was wounded for our Transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.

Hebrews 9:15 - And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.

To make an end of sin-offerings, which our Lord did when he offered his spotless soul and body on the cross once for all.

Matthew 1:21 - And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.

Hebrews 9:26 - He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.

To make atonement or expiation, which he did by the ONCE offering up of himself.

2 Corinthians 5:18 - Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.

2 Corinthians 5:19 - that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

Romans 5:10 - For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

Hebrews 2:17 - Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

Jesus did bring Everlasting Righteousness through his sacrifice.

Matthew 3:15 - But Jesus answered and said to him, Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he allowed Him.

2 Corinthians 5:21 - For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

1 Corinthians 1:30-31 - But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God--and righteousness and sanctification and redemption - that, as it is written, He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.

Jeremiah 23:5 - Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness; A King shall reign and prosper, And execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.

Jeremiah 23:6 - In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell safely; Now this is His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Isaiah 29:10 - For the Lord has poured out on you The spirit of deep sleep, And has closed your eyes, namely, the prophets; And He has covered your heads, namely, the seers.

Isaiah 29:11 - he whole vision has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one who is literate, saying, Read this, please. And he says, I cannot, for it is sealed.

2 Corinthians 3:14 - But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ.

2 Corinthians 3:15 - But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart.

2 Corinthians 3:16 - Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.

Luke 1:35 - And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.

Luke 4:18 - The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed;

Acts 10:38 - how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.


Let's consider the decree in the book of Ezra. We need to look for a decree to Restore and to rebuild Jerusalem.

Ezra 7:11 - This is a copy of the letter that King Artaxerxes gave Ezra the priest, the scribe, expert in the words of the commandments of the Lord, and of His statutes to Israel

Ezra 7:12 - Artaxerxes, king of kings, To Ezra the priest, a scribe of the Law of the God of heaven: Perfect peace, and so forth.

Ezra 7:13 - I issue a decree that all those of the people of Israel and the priests and Levites in my realm, who volunteer to go up to Jerusalem, may go with you.

Ezra 7:25 - And you, Ezra, according to your God-given wisdom, set magistrates and judges who may judge all the people who are in the region beyond the River, all such as know the laws of your God; and teach those who do not know them.

But in the decree of Artaxerxes, recorded in Ezra 7, provision is made for the complete restoration of the Jewish state, including the right to appoint magistrates and judges, hold trials, and pass and execute sentence upon violators of their own national laws. This was clearly understood to be an authorization for the full reestablishment of Jerusalem and the Jewish nation;

The decree which most correctly answers to the specifications of Daniel 9:25 was the decree of Artaxerxes to Ezra, recorded in Ezra chapter 7. We should therefore date the beginning of the 70 week prophecy of Daniel 9 from the time of that command.

This decree was issued in the year 457 BC

Did Jesus appear in the year 27 AD?

Luke 3:23 - Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about thirty years of age.

According to Daniel 9:25, it would take 483 years (69 weeks) from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince. This commandment of Artaxerxes fulfils this verse as Messiah the Price appeared in 27 AD.

27 AD is the public entrance of the Messiah on the work of the ministry. Our Lord says, "The law and the prophets were until John" - Luke 16:16. From his first public preaching, the Kingdom of Heaven commenced.

Mark 1:15 - and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.

In the above verse, Jesus mentions that the time of 69 weeks (483 years) mentioned in Daniel 9:25 is FULFILLED. Jews too knew that Messiah had to appear in 27 AD based on Daniel's prophecy and that's why they questioned John the Baptist whether he is the Messiah (John 1:19-23).

Messiah (Jesus) was cut off at 69.5 weeks in 30 AD after 3.5 years of ministry.

Isaiah 53:8 - ...For He was cut off from the land of the living; For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.

Matthew 23:37 - O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!

Matthew 23:38 - See! Your house is left to you desolate

Galatians 3:17 - And this I say, that the law, which was four hundred and thirty years later, cannot annul the covenant that was confirmed before by God in Christ, that it should make the promise of no effect.

Matthew 26:28 - For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Jeremiah 31:31 - Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.

Hebrews 8:8 - Because finding fault with them, He says: "Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah

Hebrews 8:13 - In that He says, A new covenant, He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.

The word COVENANT is Messianic, and always applies to the Messiah, not the antichrist.

At the exact moment of His death, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom... (Matthew 27:51). This act of God signified that all animal sacrifices at that moment ceased to be of value. Why? Because the Perfect Sacrifice had been offered!

Matthew 27:51 - Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split

Hebrews 10:19-20 - Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh.

Hebrews 9:12 - Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place ONCE for all, having obtained eternal redemption.

Hebrews 9:25 - Not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another

Hebrews 9:26 - He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, ONCE at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.

Hebrews 9:28 - so Christ was offered ONCE to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.

Hebrews 10:10 - By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ ONCE for all.

Hebrews 10:12 - But this Man, after He had offered ONE Sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God

Hebrews 10:14 - For by ONE Offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.

Hebrews 10:18 - Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

Matthew 24:15-16 - Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place" (whoever reads, let him understand) then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

In a parallel text to Matthew 24:15, Jesus told His disciples, When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies [Roman armies led by Prince Titus], then know that its desolation is near (Luke 21:20). The disciples did SEE those very events

Luke 21:20 - But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near.

Jesus told them, SEE! Your house is left to you desolate (Matthew 23:38). Thus Gabriel's statement in Daniel 9:27 about Jerusalem becoming desolate was perfectly fulfilled in 70 A.D.


Gabriel said that the 70-week prophecy specifically applied to the Jewish people (see Daniel 9:24). During the Lord's public ministry of 3.5 years, the Master's focus was largely upon the lost sheep of the house of Israel (Matthew 10:6). After His resurrection and then for another 3.5 years, His disciples preached only to Jews (Acts 1-6).

At the end of that second 3.5 year period, in 34 A.D., the bold Stephen was stoned by the Jewish Sanhedrin (Acts 7). This infamous deed marked the then ruling Jewish leaders' final, official rejection of the gospel of our Savior. Then the gospel went to the Gentiles.

In Acts 9, Saul became Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles (Romans 11:13). In Acts 10, God gave Peter a vision revealing it was now time to preach to the Gentiles (see Acts 10:1-28). Read also Acts 13:46. Thus approximately 3.5 years after the crucifixion— and at the end of the 70-week prophecy given for the Jewish people—the gospel shifted to the Gentiles exactly as predicted in Bible prophecy.

The 70 weeks were determined only for the Jews as mentioned in Daniel 9:24. Even though Jesus commanded the apostles to preach throughout the world (Matt 28:19), the apostles preached only within Israel for 3.5 years as they knew that the Gospel has to be preached FIRST to the Jews until the end of 70 weeks ie. 34 AD.

Jesus explained ALL the prophecies concerning him to the two disciples going to Emmaus.

Luke 24:27 - And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.

Romans 1:16 - For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

Acts 13:46 - Then Paul and Barnabas grew bold and said, It was necessary that the word of God should be spoken to you first; but since you reject it, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles.

The 70th week ended with the stoning of Stephen (Acts 7:51-59) and this happened exactly 3.5 years after the Messiah's earthly ministry ended. This incident signalled the end of 70 weeks and hence the Apostles were free to preach to the gentiles starting from Samaria.

Acts 8:5 - Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them.

Acts 8:14 - Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them.

Peter goes to Cornelius house in Acts chapter 10

1. Logic requires that 70 weeks refer to one consecutive block of time, in other words, to seventy straight sequential weeks. There is no example in Scripture of a stated time period starting, stopping, and then starting again.

All biblical references to time are consecutive: 40 days and 40 nights (Genesis 7:4), 400 years in Egypt (Genesis 15:13), 70 years of captivity (Daniel 9:2), etc.

2. Logic also requires that the 70th week follow immediately after the 69th week. If it doesn't, then it cannot properly be called the 70th week!

3. It is illogical to insert a 2,000-year gap between the 69th and 70th week. No hint of a gap is found in the prophecy itself. There is no gap between the first seven weeks and the following sixty-two weeks, so why insert one between the 69th and 70th week?

4. Daniel 9:27 says NOTHING about a seven-year period of tribulation, a rebuilt Jewish temple, or any antichrist.

5. The stated focus of this prophecy is the Messiah, not the antichrist. After the Messiah is cut off (referring to Christ's death), the text says, "And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary".

In the past, this has been consistently applied to the destruction of Jerusalem and the second temple by Roman armies led by Prince Titus in AD 70.

6. He shall confirm the covenant. Paul said the covenant was confirmed before by God in Christ (Galatians 3:17). Jesus Christ came to confirm the promises made to the fathers (Romans 15:8).

In the King James Version, Daniel 9:27 doesn’t say a covenant or peace treaty, but the covenant, which applies to The New Covenant. Nowhere in the Bible does the antichrist make, confirm, or break a covenant with anyone. The word covenant is Messianic, and always applies to the Messiah, not the antichrist.

7. He shall confirm the covenant with MANY. Jesus Christ said, This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for MANY... (Matthew 26:28). Behold a perfect fit! Jesus was quoting Daniel 9:27 specifically.

8. In the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease. After exactly three and a half years of holy ministry, Jesus Christ died on the cross, in the midst of the week [in the middle of the seven years].

At the exact moment of His death, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom... (Matthew 27:51). This act of God signified that all animal sacrifices at that moment ceased to be of value. Why? Because the Perfect Sacrifice had been offered!

9. For the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate. The abomination of desolation (Matthew 24:15) is not a simple subject, yet we know that Jesus clearly applied this event to the time when His followers were to flee from Jerusalem before the destruction of the second temple in A.D. 70.

In a parallel text to Matthew 24:15, Jesus told His disciples, When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies [Roman armies led by Prince Titus], then know that its desolation is near (Luke 21:20). The disciples did see those very events. Thus Gabriel's statement in Daniel 9:27 about Jerusalem becoming desolate was perfectly fulfilled in A.D 70.

10. Suppose you have a rod 70 inches long. From any fixed point you can lay the rod in any direction, and the points its end reaches will always be just 70 inches from the starting-point. But suppose you break off from the end of the rod one inch and then tie between the two broken ends a long piece of elastic.

You can then stretch the broken piece away to any distance you please, but you have destroyed the measurement of 70 inches. It may now be 100 inches, or 700, or more; but no longer is it 70.

Numbers 14:34 - According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for each day you shall bear your guilt one year, namely forty years, and you shall know My rejection.

Ezekiel 4:6 - And when you have completed them, lie again on your right side; then you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days. I have laid on you a day for each year.

Genesis 5:5 - So all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years; and he died.

Genesis 6:3 - And the Lord said, My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.

Genesis 25:7 - And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years.

Genesis 5:5, 5:8, 5:11, 5:14, 5:17, 5:20, 5:23, 5:27, 5:31, 6:3, 25:7
