SOME OBSERVATIONS ON DANIEL 9:24-27
 Seventy weeks (Hebrew - 'sevens' or 490 years) are determined upon thy people (Daniel's people - Israel) and upon thy holy city (Jerusalem), to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. [Note: Clearly these things have not all happened as yet so the 'seventy weeks' is not completed.]
 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 (sixty-nine 'sevens' or 483 years): the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. [Note: According to Neh. 2:5, the command upon which the seventy weeks began was given by Artaxerxes Longimanus in 445 BC. Christ's 'coronation' - triumphal entry - is believed to have been the 'anointing of the most Holy.']
 And after threescore and two weeks (plus the seven 'weeks' before them for a total of 483 years) shall Messiah be cut off (Jesus was Crucified), but not for Himself (Jesus had no sin - Heb. 4:15; He died for us - 1 Jn. 2:2) and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary (Romans in AD 70); and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
[Note: Between Daniel's sixty-ninth week and the seventieth week, is the mystery known as the Church Age (Eph. 1:9-10; 5:32; Col. 1:26-27; etc.). Dan. 9:26 can be dated by Christ's Crucifixion. This period of grace has lasted nearly 2000 years. After the Church's removal from earth via the Rapture (Jn. 14:1-3; 1 Th. 4:13-18; etc.), the seventieth week will begin]
 And he (the Roman prince that shall come) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (seven years known as the Tribulation - Mt. 24:3-31 - because it is Daniel's people, it is known as Daniel's Seventieth Week, and Jeremiah said it was "The Time of Jacob's Trouble - Jer. 30:7): and in the midst of the week (three and a half years: a time, times, and a half of a time; forty-two months; 1260 days) he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease (see Mt. 24:15; Rev. 13; etc.), and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
THE CHURCH AGE IS COMING TO AN END; TRUST IN JESUS NOW!
THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO FACE SEVEN YEARS OF HELL ON EARTH!
