Discussion for Daniel 9

  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Close. 483 yrs from Artaxerxes command. This prophecy tells can the exact yr Jesus began ministry, cut off mid week (crucified) and God giving up on the Jews, giving it over to the Gentiles. The stoning of Stephen at end of last week. It all started in 457 BC. 27 ad Christ announced. Killed 31 ad, Steph stoned 34 ad. Not an anti-Christ, it's a system that's been around since Jesus left.

    was it 483 years from the time of the temple's rebuilding under Cyrus till

    Jesus rode on the donkey into the temple, claiming to be the Messiah? Therefore the last week or seven years is from the time the Anti-Christ commits the Abomination of Desolation which ends in the victorious return of our Lord?

    I see "future antichrist" when the antichrist, and many antichrists, are already in the world. Antichrists deny daily that CHRIST JESUS is in the flesh, which is His church, His temple, His body of believers as members of CHRIST carrying His Holy Spirit. Be blessed in Christ. Amen. 1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come and even now already is it in the world. 2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

    Daniel 9 is clear up to the 26th verse. From Cyrus's decree to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of Jesus the Messiah to his crucifixion and the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans..all is clear. Then there is verse 27. Isn't it possible that this "he" could refer to Jesus also and not in the future but in the past. The temple sacrifices ceased after Jesus died and the curtain was rent in two from top to bottom. Jesus did make a new covenant with us, making the old one obsolete. Why are we applying the last week to the future? And to someone else. I say the "he" in verse 27 causes ambiguity but I am not entirely sure that it should apply to the future anti-Christ.

    Why is Daniel 9:24-27 a stumper, when it comes to mathematics? You know? Addition, for example ! Seventy weeks = 490 years from 457 B.C. to 34 A.D. Sixty Nine weeks = 483 years, and low and behold, Seventy One weeks = 497 years, Seventy Two weeks = 505 years. It's not Sixty Nine weeks and a few thousand years till the Seventieth week. Mathematics dosen't work that way. And the angel said Seventy!
