70 Week Prophesy Of Daniel

Does the 70 weeks time prophesy of Daniel 9 include a gap of thousands of years? This hardly makes sense. Yet a pretri rapture and 7 years of tribulation does that.

I'm sure most regular readers have figured out that I don't believe in a pre-mill, pre-trib rapture.

This does NOT mean I don't believe in the imminent personal return of our Savior.

I believe that He will return, and all the prophecies concerning His second coming will be fulfilled as literally--and unexpectedly--as those of His first coming.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

How can I distinguish Bible Prophecy from what is a regular occurrence!
I haven't read the prophets in years! Is is supposed to be a major disturbance or an unresolved issue or maybe recurrent like many issues?

The Prince came and ended the Old Covenant and sacrifices became worthless. His name is Jesus the Christ the Prince of peace.

Most people don't know this doctrine was developed in the 19th century to help take the heat off the Pope.

It is part of Darby's dispensationalism. A doctrine that does not follow the Bible.

Whether it makes sense or not, it's fact. The prince that is to come, [Daniel 9:26], is not yet. This prince, is a future ruler of the people that 'destroys' (perverts and corrupts morally) the 'city' (as a guarded place of waking) and the 'sanctuary' (that place of holiness and sacredness) that has been founded in the children of God through the sacrificial atonement of Jesus. "The prince who is to come", [whose people destroyed the temple in 70 AD], will confirm the covenant [of animal sacrifice and offering], then bring them to an end in an attempt to validate himself as the Jews savior. "Even until the consummation".

Sorry, that was a typo. It should have read 70 x 7 = 490 years.
---barb on 6/16/18


Maree and Therese, the 70 week prophecy of Daniel has already been fulfilled. There is no pre-tribulation rapture or 7 year tribulation in Dan 9.

70 x 70 = 490 years. God gave Daniel's people 490 years to accomplish what He asked of them in Daniel 9:24. They did not complete His requirements. Jesus, the Messiah arrived after the 490 years were up and He was rejected by Daniel's people. Dan 9:25. He, the Messiah, Jesus was cut off when He was crucified in the middle of His ministry. Dan 9:26.

The prince who came after Jesus in 70 AD destroyed the temple in Jerusalem causing the sacrifice to cease. Dan 9:26-27.

I know why i havent
bothered with christianet for quite a long time. More comments on the question would be good. Why is it in the bible if we don't need to worry about it.
---Therese on 6/16/18


StrongAxe, why are you acting as if I disagreement with you?

I was answering Cluny's question.

I didn't understand his question in relations to the blog. I wanted him to continue.

I didn't say it wasn't operational today.

I am aware people are STILL suffering from the first disaster in 1986.

I watched documentaries explaining people with cancers even down to their children today.

How some are trapped today in the area because they can't afford to leave.

Plus many of them have the highest natural sterilizations in Russia.

Samuelbb7:

Chernobyl is not still operating.
Reactor 4 melted down in April 1986.
Reactor 2 was taken offline after a fire in Oct. 1991 damaged it beyond repair.
Reactor 1 was decomissioned in Nov. 1996 in a deal between Ukraine and organizations.
Reactor 3 was shut down in Dec. 2000.


Nicole_Lacey:

At the company where I worked in 2000, one technician there was a Russian who had been in the Russian Army. He was with the group that was called in after the meltdown to secure the area, and to keep people and looters out.

The radiation leak from that meltdown left the surrounding area (around 1000 square miles) unsafe for habitation for a long time. Check the Wikipedia article on Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.
---StrongAxe on 6/15/18




\\The plant is still operating. \\

No, it isn't. It had a major meltdown in 1986.

All the population of Chernobyl were evacuated, and most of the houses destroyed.

I just saw a program last night showing how a a new building was erected a safe distance away, and then slid over the immediately built "sarcophagos," as it was called at the time.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 6/15/18


Yes I remember Chernoble. The plant is still operating. The area is mostly evacuated. But many older people stayed there. Nature is taking over the area and animals are doing well.

There have been no people dying in the U. S. from problems with Nuclear Power plants. Many who are afraid of them base their fears on false information.
Now the pretrib rapture is based on the gap theory in the 70 weeks. A few opposed by Protestants up until the 1900's.
---Samuelbb7 on 6/14/18


Nicole_Lacey:

After the Chernobyl reactor meltdown, many apocalyptic prophecy buffs were also having meltdowns of their own because the word Wormwood in Revelation is translated as Chernobyl in Ukrainian bibles.
---StrongAxe on 6/14/18


Cluny: does anyone remember the Chernobyl disaster of 1986, and what Chernobyl means?//

I do. It doesn't mean anything to me but man's attempts of handling nuclear materials the wrong way.
---Nicole_Lacey on 6/14/18


While we're discussing apocalypticism, does anyone remember the Chernobyl disaster of 1986, and what Chernobyl means?
---Cluny on 6/13/18


Monk Brendan, you took the words right out of my mouth--or fingers?

If you want to know the final exam questions at the Last Judgement, read Matthew 25.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Okay, let's all take a deep breath. Inhale--Exhale.

I know for a fact that God is not going ask for a completely filled out "70 Week" worksheet from you for you to get into heaven. Don't fixate upon it. Don't worry about it!
