Daniel's People

If you you think there
will

Why is this

VI. He shall confirm the covenant…for one week

         “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week
: and in the midst (middle) of the
          week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation (gift / meat offering
[30]) to cease, and for the over-
          spreading of abominations he shall make desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined
          shall be poured upon the desolate”
(Dan.9:27).

       A. Week is seven years
                
                Daniel was told, “seventy weeks (seventy of sevens)
[25] are determined upon thy people” (Dan.9:24). 
                 
This pattern of “weeks” or “sevens” is seen many times in the Old Testament / Covenant (Gen.1-2,     
                 Exod.16:26; 20:9-10, Lev.23:1-21; 25:1-7; 25: 1-44). 

              
                                   
             1. Jacob worked seven years / one week
(Note Gen.29:20 "it seemed but a few days")

                   
​                     Jacob told Laban "will serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger daughter" So  Jacob "served    
                     seven years (Week v.27) for Rachel and  Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife 
(Gen.29:21). Then  
                     Laban "gathered together all the men of the place, and made a feast" and tricked Jacob by giving
                     Leah. That morning, Jacob discovered that Laban had deceived him (Gen.29:21-25). Jacob then
                     served Laban another seven years (Fulfilled her weekv.27-30) to marry Rachel. (One day for a year)

             
2. The twelve spies searched for 40 days / 40 years

                     When the children of Israel failed to enter the Land promised
(Num.14: 23), (1-45), God said, "your
                     children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your
                     carcases be wasted in the wilderness. After the number of the days in which ye searched the
               
     land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye
                     shall know my breach of promise.

             3. Ezekiel laid on his side 40days40years

                        
                     God told Ezekiel, "I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the
                     days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. And when
                     thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house
                     of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year
(Ezekiel 4:5-6).


        B. He shall “confirm”

                This word “confirm” means to be strong; by implication, to prevail, act insolently
[8]  It has been
                 translated into the KJV as exceed, confirm, be great, be mighty, prevail, put to more [strength],
                 strengthen, be stronger, be valiant. The entire week / seven years is for confirming. Therefore
                 the sacrifice and oblation ceasing in the midst (middle) of the week is part of the confirmation.
          


















            
       
   C. Who ishe?" (Dan.9:27)

                 He is the Messiah because this is the context of the 70 Week Prophecy. Gabriel  says, "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, (49 years) and threescore
[26] and two
                 weeks: (62 / 434 years) the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
 And after
                 three
score[26]and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself” (Dan.9:25-26).































              
  1. Messiah is the focus of the 70 Week Prophecy

                       The subject of Messiah is the focus (concern, point; substance, essence) found in the first 69 
                       of 70 weeks. Abraham, Moses, David, Daniel and the Prophets all looked for the Messiah. Peter
                       writes, "the prophets wrote of the coming Messiah (The Word made flesh
John.1:1-14) which things
                       angel’s desired to look into”
(1Peter.1:10-12, Matt.13:11-17).

                     a. The first 49 years (7Weeks), The books of Ezra and Nehemiah / Media-Persia


                            The purpose for the first 49 years (7 Weeks) was the restoring and building of Jerusalem (Ezra /
                            Nehemiah) so they could count the years until Messiah would come 
(Dan.9:25, John.1:41, 
                              John.4:24-25).
The context is the coming Messiah

                     b. The next434 years (62 Weeks), The Book of Daniel / Greece


                            The waiting of434 years (62 weeks) was because there was an appointed time for the
                            revealing of the Messiah 
(Dan.9:26). The context is the coming Messiah

                     c. Then after434 years (62 Weeks) wait


                            Then after the wait (of 434 years / 62 weeks), Messiah wascut off.” We know now
                            (because we are looking back in History) that Jesus is the Messiah and He came unto His own 
                            (John.1:11), Daniel’s people
(Dan.9:24, 2Chron.36:1-21, Dan.1:1-10, Ezra.1:3-5), and after 3 1/2 years
                            He was “cut off” (crucified)  
(Isa.53:8). The context is the coming Messiah




























                         (1) Scripture to support Christ is the Messiah
     

                                  Phillip said we have found the Messiah
(John.1:35-42). The woman at the well said, “we know
                                  that when Messiah comes he will tells these things”
(John.4:25). Jesus became the Christ,
                                  the anointed one when he came up out of the water’s of baptism 
(Matt.3:13-17,

                                     Acts.10:38, Heb.1:9).

              
           (2)  Jesus (He, Messiah the prince) confirmed the covenant 

                                
   The context is the coming Messiah  Gal.3:15-16However only 3 1/2 has been fulfilled
                                   (confirmed) because they (the Jews) cut Christ off
(Isa.53:8) in the middle ("midst" Dan.9:27)
​                                   of the week. (i.e. in the "midst" of the
7 years of confirmation) Then the Jews were cut of like
                                   Ishmael and Esau leaving 3 1/2 yrs to finish the confirmation. This is found in Rom.9-11.
                                   Grafted in again if they abide not in unbelief.




                   





















VII. The City and Sanctuary destroyed
(Dan.9:26)

         
            This happens after Messiah had been cut off. "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 deter-
            -mined."
(Dan.9:26) History confirms this order. The Word(John.1:1; 1John.5:7-8) was made the
            Messiah
(John.1:14; 41, 1Tim.3:15-16) and became the only begotten of the Father (God John.1:18). He
            ministered for (3 1/2 years), and was crucified. ("cut off") After which a flood, (ungodly men / armies
             2Sam.22:4-6
) came and the end of the war (desolations)
[34] were determined (Dan.9:26-27)[14] 



























        A. Jesus prophesied that (Dan.9:26) would happen in the apostles lifetime
                   
                 
While Jesus departed from the Jews (1st. Cent. earthly) Temple (Matt.23:1-39, Mark.13: 1-8, Luke.21:5-7)
                 
He said to His disciples, "see...all these things?" (the Temple before theirvery eyesMatt.23:37-39;
                   24:1-2, Mark.13:1-5, Luke.21:5-7
) "There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be
                  thrown down"
(Matt.24:2) (Luke.19:41-45). The disciples then came unto him privately with these

                  questions. When shall these things be (not one stone left upon another), what shall be the sings

                  of your coming, and the end of the world (Matt.23:38-39; 24:3)?

               
 1. When shall things things be?

                       Tell us “when shall these things
(not one stone left upon another) be?” (Matt.24:3)

                       This question is future to Daniel, Jesus, and the disciples, but they are History to us today.
                         (2019 AD)
 
Matt.24:15-16.  Jesus brought together “not one stone left upon another” (Matt.24:1-2)
                       and
the abomination of desolation spoken by the prophet Daniel (Dan.9:26-27) in Matt.24:15,
                      
When He said,  “When you (i.e. their generation) see the abomination of Desolation, spoken of by
                       Daniel
the prophet, stand in the holy place, whoso readeth, let him understand” (Matt.24:15).
 
                       Note: The reason we know that this is the answer to “when shall these things be?"
(Matt.24:3)
                       is because these verses
(Matt.24:15-22) are the only verses that pertain to the (earthly / natural)
                     Temple being destroyed in
70 AD.
[24] [28] The remaining verses (Matt.24:5-14, 25-41) speak to the
                       Second Coming and the end of the world.

                       Jesus continues,
(Matt.24:15) "When ye (you disciples / your generation 1st.Century)...shall see
                       the abomination of desolation
(Dan.9:26-27) spoken by Daniel the prophet..."

               2. Then “let them which be in Judea flee” (Matt.24:16)
Note: Key words

                       
When you see the abomination of desolation spoken by the prophet Daniel / not one stone left upon 
                       another (70 AD  
History to us) let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains! Let him which

                       is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house: Neither let him which is in

                       the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that

                       give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day"

                       (Matt.24:16-20).

                       Note: This is a further confirmation that all of Matt.24 is not about the Second Coming  when
                       “every eye shall see Him (Jesus)”
(Rev.1:7)not justthem which be in Judea.”

                       
a. Matthew's Gospel (Matt.24:16)

                            When you see the
abomination of desolation spoken by the prophet Daniel
                            (not one stone upon another) let them which be in
Judea flee into the mount-
                            ains! Let him which is on the
housetop not come down to take anything out
                            of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
                            
And woe unto them that arewith child, and to them thatgive suck(Mark.13:7,
                              Luke.21:23) 
in those days!But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter,
                            neither on the
Sabbath day.

                            Note: The Sabbath has no significance to the Gentile, Heathen, Nations,
                            confirming this prophecy was to
Daniel's people / Jews and their Temple.

                   
 b. Mark's Gospel (Mark.13:15-18) 


                            Let "him that is on the
housetop not go down into the house, (When you see
                            the 
abomination of desolationspoken by the prophet Daniel / not one stone
                            upon another) 
neither enter therein, to take anything out of his house: And let him that is in the        
                            field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
But woe to them that arewith child, and to
                            them that give suck
(Matt.24:19, Luke.21:23) in those days (70 AD days)! And pray…that your
                            flight be not in the 
winter."

                     c. Luke's Gospel (Luke.21:21-23) 


                            Then
(when you see the abomination of desolation spoken by the prophet Daniel / not one
                            stone upon another)
"let themwhich are in Judaea (in 70 AD) flee to the mountains; and let 
                            them
(in 70 AD) which are in the midst of it (the city of Jerusalem and sanctuary Dan.9:26) depart
                            out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the
(70 AD)

                              days of vengeance,[28] that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe unto
                            
them that arewith child, and to them thatgive suck,
 (Matt.24:19, Mark.13:7)in those days.

                            (The abomination of desolation spoken by the prophet Daniel / not one stone upon another)

               3. For then (70 AD) shall be great tribulation
[27]  Note: Key words
                           
                       
a. Matthew's Gospel (Matt.24:21)

                           
For then(when you see the 70 AD abomination of desolation spoken by the prophet Daniel, 
                            not one stone upon another) shall be great
tribulation (70 AD) such as was not since the
                            
beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
[29] (Note: The context. It is 70 AD,
                            History to us, not the "Tribulation"
[27]




























​​

                     b. Mark's Gospel (Mark.13:19) 


                            For "in
those days(when you see the 70 ADabomination of desolationspoken by the prophet
                            Daniel / not one stone upon another)
shall be affliction, / Tribulation(Matt.24:21)great distress
                       
     (Luke.21:23-24) such as was not from the beginning of the creation(Gen.1:1 - Matt.24) which God
                            created
unto this time,(70 AD)neither shall be".[29]

                       c. Luke's Gospel (Luke.21:23-24) 

                            "…for there shall be
great distress(when you see the 70 ADabomination of desolationspoken
                            by the prophet Daniel (Dan.9:26-27) / not one stone upon another)
in the land, (of Judea, Matt.24:
                              16, Mark.13:14, Luke.21:21)
and wrath upon this people.[28](Daniel's peopleAnd they shall fall by
                            the edge of the sword..." (Note:
Lev.26:14-15; 31-32)

                            ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

                            Note how these identical verses
(Matt.24:15-21, Mark.13:1-19, Luke.21:1-23) follow each other
                            in all three Gospels
(Deut.19:15, Matt.18:16, 2Cor.13:1) until it comes to the "abomination of
                            desolation," where Luke explains, "
When ye (you) shall see[28] Jerusalem compassed with armies,
                           then
know that the desolation
[28] [29] thereof is nigh", instead of the words, "abomination
                           of desolation".


                            This harmonizes with 
Daniel(Dan.9:26-27) because it is the same Holy Spirit speaking through
                            Daniel,
(1Peter 1:10-12) that inspired Matthew and Markto write (2Tim.3:16-17)



               4. Except “those days(70 AD days) be shortened”Note: Key words
                       
                        
a. Matthew's Gospel (Matt.24:22)
                                 
                             Except
“those days”(Context: The days that the Temple is destroyed 70 AD)should be
                             
shortened,
there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect'ssake those days shall be  
                            
 shortened" (Matt 24:15-22). Some think this wording places the abomination of desolation in
                             the Tribulation.
[27] However, this cannot be the Tribulation because it is a set time of 42
                               
months 
(Rev.13:5, 2 Thes.2:6).God is not going to shorten the42 month that the man of sin    
                             has to continue.
                                       
                       
b. Mark's Gospel (Mark.13:20)  

                             Except that the Lord had
shortened those days, (Context: The days that the Temple is
                             destroyed 70 AD)
no flesh should be saved: but for the elect'ssake, whom he hath chosen, he
                             hath
shortened the days."


     
                c.  Luke's Gospel (Luke.21:24, He is still writing about the 70 AD destruction)

                             Luke explains,
except "those days" be shortened (i.e. the days that the Temple is destroyed
                             70 AD) to
"they shall fall by the edge of the sword, [28] and shall be led away captive into all
                             nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles
                             be fulfilled." (Note: Lev.26:1-33, Note;v.14-15; 31-33)

                          Note Luke's expansion of 
Matt.24:22, Mark 13:20Note: Key words


                    
       (1) They shall fall by the edge of the sword (Luke.21:24)[28]

                                This is not speaking of the  future "tribulation" [27] because there is a set  time given

                                   (1260 days 3 1/2 years / 42 months) for the man of sin to continue (Rev.13:5), which is not
                                   going to be shortened
.

                          (2) Led away captive into all nations
(Luke.21:24) Note: Lev.26:14-15, 27-33


                                   During the 42 month reign of the man of sin (antichrist
Rev.13:5) there is no record of
                                  
Daniel's people (Judah / Jews Dan.9:24) being led away captive into all nations. By this time
                                      (Rev.13:5)
the antichrist (beast) already has dominion over "all kindreds...tongues and
                                nations
"
[47](Rev.13:7)  EVERYONE is captive. (This includes Jerusalem)


                        
    (3) Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles  (Luke.21:24)


                                   If Luke is writing about another Abomination of Desolation during the "great tribulation", then
                                   the "times of the Gentiles" would have to be fulfilled during this same time. (i.e.
1260 days 3 1/2
                                   years / 42 months) that the man of sin has to continue, 
(Rev.13:5)


                             
   (a)  What is the "times of the Gentiles?"

                                         (1)  The times of the Gentiles / Nations is now

                                               'Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh...without Christ,
                                               being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of
                                               promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesusye (you)
                                           who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
(Eph.2:1-22)

                                    
       (a)  Times - an occasion, i.e. set or proper time:—X always, opportunity, (convenient, due)
                                                     season, (due, short, while) time, a while. Compare G5550.
(Strong's Con.NT#2540 )

                                               (b) This time of the Gentiles / Nations, stopswhen the "fullness" (the full number of) []
                                                      of the Gentiles be come in?
(Matt.21:33-46, Hosea.2:23 / Rom.9:25)
                                                    
                                               (c)  Immediately after that time (i.e. full number of Gentiles be come into the kingdom of
                                                     God / Church
Eph.2:1-19) the "children of Abraham" (the Jews / House of Judah) are
                                                     "grafted in
                                                     again IF they abide still not in unbelief"
(Rom.11:1-25, Note:v.25)
                                               (d)  This "mystery" will be completed before Jesus return.
(Acts.3:19-24, Rom.16:25-26,
                                                           Rev.10:7)


                                         (2)  Is this the same as the
                                                     (a)  .
                                                     (b)  .

  
                             
         (b) Is the "Trodden down" (of Luke.21:24) the same as Rev.11)
                                    
                                         (1)  Daniel called for the "city and the Sanctuary" to be destroyed (Dan.9:26)
                                         (2)  John wrote that this future Temple of God would be MEASURED (Rev.11:1-2)
                                         (3)  Only the outer court was trodden down of the Gentiles  / Nations (nothing about the
                                                times of the Gentiles



                                      (b) Another things that must accompany the Abomination of Desolation
                                       
                                         (1)  There would to be a rebuilding of the
Temple that was destroyed 70 AD
                                         (2)  This Temple would have to have God's Temple recorded on it
                                         (3)  There would have to be a restoration of the animal sacrifices that God will sanction


                                   (b)  Historically this abomination happened 70 AD (Dan.9:26)
                              
     (c)  This abomination was made desolate (Dan.9:27) 70 AD
                              
     (d)  This desolation (astonishment, amazement / blindnessRom.11:25, 2Cor.3:13-16) has
                                          "overspread"
from 70 ADuntil the times of the Gentiles be fulfiiled(Dan.9:27,
                                              Luke.21:24)




























This (desolation, astonishment, blindness) has overspreadand is still happening to the
                                          earthly / natural City of Jerusalem
                                          since 7o AD, [28]​ [24] because Luke says it would trodden down  until the the times (the
                                          fullness / full number) be fulfilled. (Luke.21:24)
  We are in the "times of the Gentiles" TODAY!
​  
                                  (e)  The "times" of the Gentile (Luke,21:24)
                                   (f)   The "fullness" / full number) of the Gentiles" being gathered in

                                           (Note:
Matt.21:33-43, Rom.9:25 / Hosea.10:2:23, 1Peter.2:9
)
                                   (g)   Given to the Gentiles




                                           Wherefore remember, that ye (you) being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are
                                           called Uncircumcision
[00] by that which is called the Circumcision[00] (the Jews, the
                                           children of the flesh of Abraham
Rom.9:8) in the flesh made by hands; That at that time
                                           ye (you) were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers
                                           from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in
                                           Christ Jesus ye (you) who sometimes were far off are made nigh(reconciled, grated in   

                                              Rom.11:17-26
) by the blood of Christ.








                                           Now therefore ye (you) are no more strangers
[00] and foreigners, but fellow citizens
                                           with the saints, (Jew and Gentile together) and of the household of God.
(Eph.2:11-19)

                                           The purpose:  To be built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus
                                           Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together
                                           groweth (is growing) unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded
                                           together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.



                                           Romans teaches us that at this moment we (the Gentiles) are being grafted in (i.e.
                                           reconciled
























The Nations were divided after the tower of Babel (Babylon)
                                    While Daniel was a captive of Babylon he received revelation of the kingdoms of this
                                    world. (Gentile Nations) God was beginning to work with Gentile Nations beginning with
                                    Babylon.
                                           (1)  God was about to release Judah from their captivity / gave them a time table when
                                                 the Messiah would come
                                           (2)  Dan.2:1-45 / God gave a God-given dream of the future kingdoms of this using a image.
                                                  The false prophet makes an image that the world is to worship / time of the end
                                           (2). Dan.9 Daniel was told how long it would take to rebuild the City and walls
                                           (3)  Dan.8 This time is indentified as Media- Perisa, and the wait until the Messiah (Greece)
                                                  Messiah would be cut (crucified) off. To reconcile both Gentile Nations and Jews
                                                  together as one man. THE CENTER PIECE of God's Redemptive Plan. This time is given to
                                                  the Gentiles until the...
                                                  - Blindness
                                                  - Abomination of Desolation is fulfilled
                                           (4)  Dan.7. Then God gave Daniel understanding of the anti-Messiah (Christ) Little Horn
                                                  come in the time of the end and will be destroyed by the Second Coming of THE TRUE
                                                  MESSIAH
                                           (5)  Dan.10-11 This is confirmed
​                                           (6)  Dan.12 Shut up the book (sealed) until the seal boook is opened in Revelation















               























                                          The Ephesian Church was told "Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past
                                         Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision[37] by that which is called the
                                         Circumcision[38] in the flesh made by hands"...without Christ, being aliens [39] (Strangers)
                                                 [40] from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise,    
                                         having no hope, and without God in the world:

But now in Christ Jesus ye (you) who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the
                                         blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both (Jew and Gentile) one...to make
                                         in himself of twain (Jew and Gentile) one new man, so making peace...That he might
                                         reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby...For
                                         through him we both (as one new man) have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

                                       Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, (Aliens) but fellowcitizens
​                                         with the saints, and of the household of God" (Eph.2:11-19; 3:1-12).

           Note: After the overspreading of abominations and the full number of the have come in, there is a
           time given to Israel to be grafted in again (Rom.11:25), before the Second Coming (Rev.10:7,   
            Rom.11:25. Key word "mystery") This is when the remaining 3½ years will be confirmed to children of
           the flesh of Abraham (Daniel's people, Dan.9:24) "if they abide not still in unbelief" that Jesus is the
           Messiah (Rom.9, 10 and 11). 
​​
Daniel says this Abomination will overspreading until the consummation. (i.e. Strong's Con.OT.#3617 /
              from H3615; a completion; adverb, completely; also destruction:—altogether, (be, utterly) consume(-d),
              consummation(-ption), was determined, (full, utter) end, riddance.










                             
     (b)  Spiritual Blindness(Trodden down) still happening today to Daniel's people

                                           "But their minds (i.e.
Daniel's People) were blinded: (Rom.11:25, Matt.13:14-17) for until
                                           this day remaineth (there remains) the same vail untaken away in the reading of the Old
                                           Testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is
                                           read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it (The Nation of Israel) shall turn
                                           to the Lord,
(Rom.11:20-26) the vail shall be taken away. (2Cor.3:14)                       

                                         This will continue to happening to Israel(the children of the flesh of AbrahamRom.9:1-8)
                                           until "the times" (i.e. the full number of the Gentiles be come in)
(
Rom.11:25, Eph.2:11-19;

                                      (c)  Some think that Luke.21:24 is the same as Rev.11:1-2


                                         Do the comparison

































​​
                                 
      


                         
      (b)  
Some may ask, "What about Luke.21:24 and Rev.11:2?
                                         

                                        The Rev.11
Temple of God is the Church being measured, not destroyed
                                       
(John.2:18-2o, Col.1:17-18, 1Cor.6:19, Eph.2:20-21, 1Peter.2:5, Acts.7:47; 17:24) 

                                           Note: Also the Altar was also measured. Luke's account called for the city of

                                        "Jerusalem" (which includes the Temple and the Altar) to be "trodden down of the

                                        Gentiles." Rev.11 ONLY the "court which is without the Temple" is trodden down. 

                                        This does not match  Luke.21:20-24 or Dan.9:26-27.
                                          
                                        
  Other Rev.11:1-2 Questions?
                      

                                        (1)  My Question: Where are the armies in Revelation that Luke.21:20-21 is speaking about?

                                               and Dan.9:26-27 that compass about
                                                 Jerusalem in Rev.11 or any other part of Revelation
                                          (2)  My Q: Where is the Temple, and animal sacrifices that (supposedly) Luke comesfrom
                                                     Dan.9:27
 that Luke is drawing from in Rev.11?
                                          (3) A: Luke is centered on Jerusalem and Judea (Luke.21:20-24). The context ofRev.11  
                                                is centered around the beast / antichrist, who is given power to continue 42
                                                months "over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations"
(Rev.13:7). This includes Judea
                                                and Jerusalem. There is nothing left to desecrate.
          
                               (4) Q: What about "But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it
                                                not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot
                                           forty and two months."
(Rev.11:1-2)

                                                A: This is separate from the "fulness of the Gentiles" (Rom.11:25) and "the times of the
                                                    
Gentiles" (Luke.21:24) 

​                           
​               5. For there shall arisefalse Christ’s


                       1. Matthew's Gospel (Matt.24:23-25)             

                            Then
(the context is the days that the Temple is destroyed, 70 AD) if any man shall say unto you,
                            Lo, here is Christ, (Messiah / anointed one) or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false
                            Christ’s” (Messiah’s and anointed ones).

                         a. This would seem to belong in the Tribulation


                                However, the apostle John writes, (in the 1st. Cent. AD) "it is the last time: and as ye have
                                heard that antichrist shall come,
(2Thes.2:3-8, Rev.13) even now (in the 1st. Cent. 1John.4:1-4) 
                                are there many antichrists; (false christ's / anonting's
2Cor.11:1-15, 2Peter.2:1-18, Jude.1:1-13
                                whereby we know that it is the 
last time. (i.e. the last 2000 years / 2 Days 2Peter.3:1-9) There-
​                                fore this statement cannot be used to say that there will another abomination of desolation
                                at the time of the end. 

                      
​                           b. Review the context of Matt.24:15-24, Mark.13:14-23, Luke.21:20-24

                                T
he context of Matt.24:15-24, Mark.13:14-23, Luke.21:20-24 is the destruction of "the city
                                (Jerusalem) and the sanctuary (The Temple) being destroyed 70 AD.
 Read again
 Matt.24:15-19,
                                  Mark.13:14-16, Luke.21:20-21 
"when you see the abomination of desolation / not one stone
                                left upon another...then (70 AD) 
(Matt.24:16-20, Mark.13:14-18, Luke.21:21-24)...then (70 AD)     
                                  
(Matt.24:21)...in those days (70 AD) Mark.13:19, Luke.21:23.


                      2. Mark's Gospel (Mark.13:21) 

                            Then
(the context is the days that the Temple is destroyed 70 AD) if any man shall say to you,
                            Lo, here is Christ; (Messiah / anointed one) or, lo, he is there; believe him not: For false Christ's
                            (anointing’s) and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were
                            possible, even the elect."
(1John.2:27) But take ye heed behold, I have foretold you all things.


                       
3. Luke's Gospel (Luke.21:24) 

                            Matthew and Mark warn against the false christ's (anointing's) and Luke adds "they shall fall
                            by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: andJerusalem shall be
                            trodden down. 
(beginning with 70 AD destruction of the Temple)until the times of the Gentiles  
                            be fulfilled."
(Luke.21:24)             

                            a. 
Jerusalem shall be trodden down will continue until
                            d. 
UNTIL the times of the Gentiles (i.e. every Nation that is not Jewish) be fulfilled.
                                 (See VIII.























                                       
VIII. After the full number of Gentiles have come in
 
             
Because of unbelief they (the Jews / Daniel's people) were broken off, and thou (you Gentiles) standest
              by faith. (Eph.2:1-19) Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, (the Jews /
             
Daniel's peopleDan.9:24) take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and
              severity of God: on them (the Jews)
which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou (you Gentiles)
              continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they (the Jews,
Daniel's peopleDan.9:24)
              also, if they (the Jews,
Daniel's peopleDan.9:24) abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is
              able to graft them in again.

              For if thou wert ( ) cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert ( ) grafted contrary to nature
              into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their
              own olive tree?

              For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own
              conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, (2Cor.3:1-16)until the fulness (
the full number) of
             the Gentiles be come in."
(Rom.11:25)            
            


























    



























           How is Jesus, who began to do and teach (Luke.1:3, Acts.1:1, John.1:11) about confirming the Covenant,
           going to finish the confirmation when He is sitting at the Father's right hand? This will be through the two
           witnesses, Moses and Elijah.


        A. I will give power unto my two witnesses
     
                  They shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, [3½ years]
[41] clothed in sackcloth.
                  ...These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power
                  over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues
, as often as they will"     
                  
(Rev 11:3-7). 

             
    1. The two witnesses

                       These (two witnesses) "have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy:
                       and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often
                       as they will"
(Rev.11:6-7).

      
               a. One will be Elijah

                           Elijah shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy:
(James.5:17-18, 1Kings.17:1) 
                             
Elijah represents the Prophets to Israel (Mal.4:5, Matt.11:14; 16:14).

       
              b. The other witness will be Moses

                           Moses had power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues,
                           as often as they will"
(Exod.7-12, Note: Exod.7:19).Moses represents the Law (Acts.3:22,    
                             Deut.18:15).

     
          2. It was both Elijah and Moses that bore witnesses to Christ's transfiguration
      
                       After six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high
                       mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his
                       raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and  Elias (Elijah)
                       talking with him"
(Matt.17:1-6). 
   
                    
  a. Jesus said
       
                           Think "not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy,
                           but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no
                           wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled"
(Matt.5:17-18). Jesus, (who brought grace and truth    
        
                    John.1:17) agrees with the Law, (Moses) and the Prophets, (Elijah) and they agree (bear witness)
                           with Jesus. 

            
         b. Jesus said
     
                           Many "prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see
                           and have not seen them
 and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard         
​                          
 them" (Eph.3:5, Matt.13:16-17). The reason is because It was revealed, that not unto themselves,
                           but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have
                           preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the
                           angels desire to look into"
(1Peter.1:12-13).
    
     
                c. The apostle Paul who was taught by Jesus says
       

                        (1)  Law and Prophets bear witness

                   
                                 The Law and the Prophets bear "witnesses" to the righteousness which is by faith of Jesus
                                 Christ 
(Rom.3:21-31, Gal.1:11-12).

         
                (2)  Kingdom of God in the Law and Prophets 
                  
                                  When "they had appointed him (Paul) a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to
​                                  whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus,
                                  both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening" 
(Acts.28:23).


    
           3. Israel (Daniel's people,Dan.9:24will only hear "Moses and the Prophets"  
         
                       Abraham says, "they (Daniel's people 
Dan.9:24) have Moses and the prophets; let them hear
​                       them. And he (the rich man) said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead,
                       they will repent. And he (Abraham) said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither
                       will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead"
(Luke 16:29-31).

   
           4. Moses and Elijah are prophesying for 1260 days, 

                      "I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two  hundred and    
                      threescore days,
[26] clothed in sackcloth" (Rev.11:3).

                        1260 days is 42 months (Rev.11:2).

                        1260 days is time, times and half a time (Rev.12:6,14).

                        1260 days is time, times and dividing of times. (Dan.7:25)
           
                       Note: 1260 days divided by 42 months is years which happens to be the remaining time left of
                       the Covenant to be confirms to Daniel's people.


   
           5. They were prophesying in Jerusalem
          
        
           a. Where our Lord was crucified
        
                           Moses and Elijah were prophesying "where our Lord was crucified"
(Rev.11:3, 8), Jerusalem!
                           The place where Jesus was cut off while confirming the first years of the Covenant.
     
                     
b. Now it is understood what Moses and Elijah were prophesying.
      
​                           They were prophesying about Jesus the Messiah confirming the New Covenant in His blood.
                           This is where "if they (the Jews) abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in"
(Rom.11:23).

                           Graffed into what? Graffed into the one and only purpose that God has had since the

                           beginning of the world (Eph.2:1-22; 3:1-12).

                           Note: This 1260 days is also the same period of time that the antichrist has "power to 
                           continued"
(Rev.13:5).
