In the last article, we saw how prophetic time is counted in the scriptures in 30 day months and applied this to 7 scriptures which have significant bearing on the counting of days in Daniel’s 70th Week. We charted how according to Matthew 24:34 the end of the age must occur before 2029. Next, we looked at prophetic Feast scriptures to see how the 7 year Sabbath rest of the land is counted and then how the Jubilee is calculated using 7 – 7 year Sabbath periods, 49 years * 360 days = 17,640 days then applied that number of days to June 7, 1967, on a spreadsheet, to arrive at a calculated date of September 23, 2015 and what most say is the Day of Atonement.
Now that we have laid and understand that framework we want to find confirmation of this date being the first day of Daniel’s 70th Week.
Many years ago I began monitoring the writings of those who believe they are prophetic “watchers” who pay close attention to watching geo-political events, astronomical events, doing mathematical calculations, studying prophetic scriptures, etc for the purpose of determining when the time of the end begins. Of course, I read many prophecy books and many prophetic research articles on the internet and watched hundreds of hours videos people had made who said they had found secrets and facts that pointed to the start of Daniel’s 70th Week.
Along the way, in the early to mid 2000s, I began investigating the false pre-tribulation rapture theory and ran into the website http://www.endtimepilgrim.org/ and Dr. Gavin Finley who researched and produced what I believe is the finest articles on the false pre-tribulation rapture. Dr. Finley has dozens upon dozens of very fine, well researched articles on his website, particularly those of historical nature. But, I believe there is none finer on his website than his articles and series on Daniel’s 70th Week and understanding mathematically the terminus of the 69th Week was the week Messiah was crucified in Jerusalem:
and his video series on the subject:
Dr. Finley also refers to the work of Sir Robert Anderson of Scotland Yard who did a great work in determining the 69 weeks, as well: http://www.endtimepilgrim.org/70wks2.htm and his book here: http://philologos.org/__eb-tcp/default.htm
Gavin’s work is exhaustive and convincing that the 70th Week of Daniel awaits us in the distant future and I cannot improve on that conclusion as it is a correct one.
So, having nailed down an excellent start date for Daniel’s 70th Week based on my calculations and understanding of various historical events, I want to introduce you to the very fine work of some watchers who write exhaustive and complex articles on the front page of www.FiveDoves.com There is also the very fine work of Mark Biltz, pastor at El Shaddai http://www.elshaddaiministries.us/ who first discovered the 4 blood moon tetrads of 2014-2015, 1967-1968, and 1948-1949, and other facts. Last, I will mention the very fine work of Jonathan Cahn author of “The Mystery of the Shemitah”. Cahn points to September 13th as a possible economic collapse/disaster based on the history of severe financial chaos every 7 years for many decades.
The “watchers” at FiveDoves and Ron Reece, in particular, looked at the events I am about to show you and believed the first Day of Daniel’s 70th Week began on October 29, 2008 and it was an excellent choice but as time went on some things that should have happened were not happening and they and many others abandoned that theory.
They made a couple of simple mistakes in the interpretation of events that caused them to be slightly off in their calculations. First was a misinterpretation of the Jubilee and second was not quite understanding what was said right here in this speech:
In this speech, President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama repeats over and over again the phrase “in one week” and most all people think he is describing the 2008 election which is to take place the very next Tuesday and that can certainly be true. HOWEVER, if we take exactly 1 of Daniel’s prophetic weeks (7 years * 360 days) and add that to October 29, 2008 on the spreadsheet, we see that math reveals we come out to exactly September 23, 2015!
Ron Reece explained very eloquently to people, over the years, that the scripture in Daniel 9 does not mean explicitly that nations would make a 7 year peace treaty or covenant with Israel:
Daniel 9:20-27 New King James Version (NKJV)
“The Seventy-Weeks Prophecy”
20 Now while I was speaking, praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before YHVH my God for the holy mountain of my God, 21 yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering. 22 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand. 23 At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision:
24 “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.
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,[d]
Even in troublesome times.
26 “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.
27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate.”
Let’s examine the 26th and 27th verses carefully. The Prince in verse 26 and “the prince” in verse 27 cannot logically be the same though many writers and theologians, over time, have tried to make that so to fit their various false theologies. False theologies have tried to say it was obvious the destruction of the Temple in A.D. 70 in Jerusalem fulfilled this scripture and it was Messiah who had this done. But what about the city? And that verse indicates a connection to the last days. Besides, what reason would Messiah have to destroy the city?
Very smart people don’t ask themselves very simple questions sometimes! They want to get the next book written and make the sales and reap the benefit never carefully considering the well being of the multitudes that will follow them and what they write or say.
Then we come to verse 27 and it says absolutely NOTHING about a covenant between Israel and the nations though theologians and writers have made hundreds of millions of dollars false claiming it says just that.
False theologians also have said the ministry of “Jesus” was 3.5 years and that does not share weight with the early writers of history who mostly said His ministry was “about a year”. Besides, that would have Daniel’s 69th week ending at the moment “Jesus” was baptized by John and started His ministry and there is absolutely nothing anywhere that confirms in history the timing of Daniel’s 69th Week to that point in time.
No, this 27th verse is referring to the future 70th Week of Daniel and the mid point of it which is the Abomniation of Desolation in the nation of Israel where both Daniel 12 and Revelation 11 make crystal clear the people there are overrun:
Daniel 12:7 New King James Version (NKJV)
7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these thingsshall be finished.
Revelation 11:2 New King James Version (NKJV)
2 But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot forforty-two months.
And this horrible account in Zechariah:
Zechariah 13:8-9 New King James Version (NKJV)
8 And it shall come to pass in all the land,”
“That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die,
But one–third shall be left in it:
9 I will bring the one–third through the fire,
Will refine them as silver is refined,
And test them as gold is tested.
They will call on My name,
And I will answer them.
I will say, ‘This is My people’;
And each one will say, ‘YHVH is my God.’”
In the mouth of a few witnesses, His understanding is established.
Something else happened, as another confirming fact, issued by Barack Obama that week of October 29, 2008 that fulfilled prophecy:
In Revelation 8, there is a very strange scripture that says:
Revelation 8:1 New King James Version (NKJV)
8 When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
The length of Obama’s infomercial was about 29:34 minutes. It was broadcast all over TV and cable as shows which were not main stream media and would not normally run anything on politics chose to abandon regular programming in lieu of giving free airtime to Obama and his “30 minute” infomercial. This was completely and totally unprecedented. And to emphasize that point thousands of radio, TV, and internet stations all over the world chose to interrupt regular programming and broadcast the message of “Hope and Change” in almost every country in the world, complete free of charge to the Obama campaign and of such scale that his opponent John McCain could not overcome.
Now, we have a plethora of scriptures fulfilled.
So, one simple mistake those at FiveDoves made was not correctly interpreting Obama’s “in one week” to mean in one prophetic week (or 2,520 days = 7 years * 360 days) but I have to give them credit as that was almost impossible to see, at the time.
My readers should visit the articles on the front page of FiveDoves and see how they mathematically nailed Obama as the man of sin.
How is your math ability on the calculation of odds of probability?
Here, we have the greatest date in the history of Modern Israel, June 7, 1977 being exactly 17,640 days (a perfect prophetic 49 years * 360 days) in front of the calculated Day of Atonement on September 23, 2015!
And what are the odds, on top of those odds, that by going back in time from the “Day of Atonement” 2015 a perfect Week in Daniel’s Prophecy of 70 Weeks, or 2,520 days, to a date when a candidate for the President of the United States utters the words “in one week” 7-8 times in a speech that is heard all around the world that is the fulfillment of Daniel 9:27 ?
Now, let’s add the astronomical odds, on top of all those odds that at the same time this candidate of President of the greatest military the world has ever seen also broadcasts an almost 30 minute infomercial fulfilling Revelation 8:1 ?
The odds are not calculable.
But let’s add even more to these incalculable odds…
What are the odds, on top of all these odds that this same candidate, Barack Obama, whose birth origin is still a topic of great debate, sounds just like this guy:
Daniel 7:8 New King James Version (NKJV)
8 I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.
Daniel 7:23-25 New King James Version (NKJV)
23 “Thus he said:
‘The fourth beast shall be
A fourth kingdom on earth,
Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
And shall devour the whole earth,
Trample it and break it in pieces.
24 The ten horns are ten kings
Who shall arise from this kingdom.
And another shall rise after them;
He shall be different from the first ones,
And shall subdue three kings.
25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High,
Shall persecute[a] the saints of the Most High,
And shall intend to change times and law.
Then the saints shall be given into his hand
For a time and times and half a time.
What are the odds?
And what are the odds a group of very highly mathematically oriented people at FiveDoves would nail Barack Hussein Obama every which way and loose as the man of sin, the anti-Messiah of the last days, Daniel’s 70th Week?
Completely and totally incalculable!
Today, as I finish this article to be released in a week or so, it is July 17, 2015 and there are 57 days until the calculated date of 29 Elull, 58 days until Feast of trumpets, 73 days until the final blood moon in the series of 4 (tetrad), and 68 days until the start of Daniel’s 70th Week.
I have much more to tell…
Stay tuned for Part 3!
