Moses

Seventy Weeks - Milestone Events

Modern City




Five points in time represent the treasure of this prophecy.


1) THE START OF THE 70 'WEEKS'

      
EXODUS!

     When God chose a people, a nation, for Himself and led them
     out of the land of Egypt!


     Exodus was a major event in biblical history! Prior to this God
     had worked with individuals, but at this time He chose a nation.


     Within this nation God would build His church! 


2) AFTER THE FIRST 50 YEARS (1 'WEEKS')

      
'REST'
EVENT TIMING

     Following Exodus the children of Israel spent 40 years wandering
     in the wilderness and then another 10 years gaining control of
     the Promised Land!


     Then the time arrived when the children of Israel were to start
     to build His church, Jerusalem.


     Verse 25,   ... from the issuing of the word to turn and
                 build Jerusalem, ...


     It was at this point that they 'turned' from focusing upon
     clearing the land of its inhabitants and they started to
     dwell in the land God had given them. Josh 21:43-22:9.


3) AFTER 400 YEARS (1 + 7 'WEEKS')

       
KING SAUL!
EVENT TIMING

     The children of Israel committed a great wickedness in requesting
     a human king. 1 Sam 12:17,19-20.


     Saul had been anointed. 1 Sam 10:1
 

     The prophecy alludes to Saul because he represents an example of
     the future entity which will rule over the people of God. As Saul
     was not loyal to the commandments of God, neither will be the
     future ruler.



4) THE END OF THE 3,500 YEARS (70 'WEEKS')

      
JERUSALEM FALLS!

                              


     verse 26,   ...  And the city and the sanctuary shall
                 overthrow the people of an arriving ruler.


     The 'arriving ruler' is manifest.

     At the start of his reign he destroys Jerusalem!

 
     This ruler is the 'an anointed one, a ruler' of verse 25!
     This entity is 'anointed'!
         
ANOINTED DESOLATOR

     [ NB: The end of the 70 'weeks' is also;
                   - the end of the 69 'weeks'
                   - the end of the 62 'weeks'. ]



5) 3,500 YEARS + REIGN OF DESOLATOR

      
DESOLATOR JUDGED

     The desolator continues to reign until a complete end is made
     of all other entities marked for destruction.


     Then he will be judged.

     verse 26,   ... And his end with a flood ...

     verse 27,   ... And as decreed she shall be poured forth
                 on the desolator. 


     With God's fury having been fully unleashed the scene is set for
     the beginning of a new era.
