DANIEL 9: 24-27 PROPHECY
JESUS’ “PAROUSIA” / “COMING” *
PROPHETIC NUMEROLOGICAL SEQUENCES
RETURN TO: FEASTS Of The LORD.Net
The 7 Feasts are “Appointed Times with the Lord”
Feasts are God’s Calendar of Redeeming Grace:
The prophecies in the first 4 feasts were fulfilled at Jesus' 1st coming
The last 3 feasts will
be fulfilled at His 2nd coming.
Prophecy of the 1st AND
2nd Coming of Jesus:
The prophecy of Daniel 9 declares: “Seventy
weeks (70 periods of seven) are
determined upon thy people
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
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 (69 sevens): the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times.”
(69 x 7s = 483 years or 173,880 “prophetic” calendar days; at 360 days / year)
Note the significance of Israel’s ability to restore the City
of Jerusalem which happened in 445 B.C., when Nehemiah was ordered
to do so by Artaxerxes (Neh. 2:1-8). His order started the counting of the 69-7s period [The city wall was rebuilt, not the temple,
which had been under construction for 40 years, and was not completed for another 30
years; 486 BC – 416 B.C. See books of Ezra & Nehemiah). Precisely 483
years after Daniel's prophecy,
Dan. 9:24-27, Jesus the Messiah came the 1st
time;exactly as prophesied.
See “Daniel Prophecy Verification Calculations” which verifies the validity of this biblical prophecy of Jesus
at His 1st coming after 69 seven-year periods as prophesied.
stated are not absolute predictions of prophecy fulfillment. However, this analysis IS a compilation of Scriptures
that deserve thoughtful CONSIDERATION so that we might prepare for a Possible “Season” of our Lord’s
return, with RESPONSIBLE reactions of the Heart in service to God. This will help us to build a “Nehemiah type wall of Spiritual Protection”,
preparing us to overcome the future trials / tribulation / temptations to deny Christ as Lord and God. ALL
Years Are Estimates.
9:27 continues "AND He
(God) shall confirm the (His)
covenant (of 70
periods of seven) - upon the people & the city - (Jerusalem) with many for one week (1 period of 7): and in the midst of the week He (God) shall cause (allow)
the sacrifice and the sacrifices to cease (by His permissive will which allows the activities of the antiChrist),
and for the overspreading of abominations he (antichrist) shall make it desolate, even until the consummation (End, i.e.
End of the Age), and that determined (God’s wrath) shall be poured upon the desolate (the unrepentant at the opening of the
“Jerusalem Shall Be Trodden Down, UNTIL the Times Of The Gentiles Be Fulfilled.”
Note: 2 of 4 Sacrificial
Offerings Are Praise Offerings to God - Not for Sin:
Offerings: Represents complete submission to God's will.
Ezek. 46:1-2, 12; also Lev. 1:3-5 (i.e. Jesus)
Peace Offering: Expresses gratitude
to God & has nothing to do with sin.
Lev. 7:11-12, 15
Sin Offering: Sin through ignorance of the law; an
offense to God.
Lev. 4:2, 13
or Guilt Offering: Leviticus
chapters 5 & 6
"End Of The Age" and Eschatology Foundational Hermeneutics for greater detailDaniel 9:27 states: "And He
(God) shall confirm the (His) covenant (of 70-7s) with many for
one week (1 period of 7)". Therefore the last 70th 7 year period is also subject to the
prophecy concerning the ability to “restore and to build Jerusalem unto
the Messiah the Prince”, for “Seventy
weeks (70 periods of 7) are determined upon thy people AND the City of Jerusalem.”
Because Daniel 9:24 declares 70-7s are determined and upon Thy holy city (Jerusalem) until the completion of all prophecy;
Jesus' Second Coming is
also prophesied in the last and 70th seven (“Last Days”) of Dan. 9: 24-27.
Thus this 70th 7-year period
is also subject to the ability to “rebuild and restore Jerusalem”.
This event finally occurred in 1967; therefore the counting “until the coming on
the Messiah the Prince” applies here, just as when the rebuilding was ordered by Artaxerxes in Nehemiah 2:1 !
“Last Days” timing is partially based upon Israel’s ability to rebuild
Jerusalem since it’s recapture in 1967 as per
“Jerusalem shall be trodden down, UNTIL the time of the Gentiles be fulfilled.”
Dan. 9:27 also states: "And He (God) shall
confirm the (His) covenant (of 70-7s) with
many for one week (1 period of 7)": and in the midst of the week He (God) shall cause
(allow) the sacrifice & oblation to cease”.
Re.: “He (God) shall cause (allow) the sacrifice & oblation to cease”:
This is by His (God’s) Permissive Will:
allows the anti Christ to cause “tribulation” (Peirasmos) upon the peoples of the earth; as exemplified in His (God’s) permissive
Will during the first 5 seals of Rev. 6 & 7 describing events of false religions, wars, famine,
pestilence and death by sword persecutions; which includes deceptions by satan and the
“abomination of desolation” by the antichrist.
This is contrasted by the events following the breaking of the 7th and last Seal,
opening the scroll, revealing and releasing “God’s wrath” (Ebrah)
upon the unrepentant.
Regarding Dan. 9:27: “He shall confirm the covenant” (of 70 periods of 7).
Confirm is from the Hebrew word “higbir”
(Hiph'il form of the verb Gabar) meaning “to
confirm (a covenant), to strengthen”.
Hebrew / Greek Interlinear Bible and Hebrew/Greek Lexicon However, the New American Standard (NASB) incorrectly translates “higbir” to the English verb: “to
make” (“karat /
poieo” in Hebrew /
Greek) rather; than “to confirm” or “to
Thus the NASB infers there was NO pre-existing
covenant “to confirm” or “to strengthen”. This incorrect
translation by the NASB literally changes Scripture, to it’s detriment. "To make" is NOT synonymous
with "to confirm".
NASB translation “to make” is used to heretically
infer the antichrist “makes” a “covenant with the people and the city of Jerusalem”, and consequently,
causes major consequences in eschatology hermeneutics!
This is satan’s counterfeit at its best,
distorting God’s prophecy of His Second Coming! Unfortunately,
Pre-Tribulation theology uses this translation in justifying the antichrist
'making' a covenant with Israel at the beginning of the 7-year
‘tribulation’ period. It is imperative that a correct translation
‘to confirm’ or ‘to strengthen’ a covenant be used
to show the importance of God’s continued covenant of the full '70 periods of 7s’ with “the
people and the CITY of JERUSALEM”.
Note the ‘confirmation’ or ‘strengthening’ of the entire covenant,
which includes the “ability to rebuild Jerusalem”, and applies equally to both periods (69 7’s as well
as the last 70th 7). Therefore the ability to rebuild Jerusalem is a
key “sign” related to both the 1st & 2nd prophecies related to Jesus' coming!
detail see: Web Site Eschatology Foundational Hermeneutics
The “Last Days” Timing
could also be associated with other factors:
In 1948 Israel became one nation again as prophesied (Ezek. 37:16-22), but did not control Jerusalem until
1967. Thus Israel had no ability to restore the City of Jerusalem
as required in Dan.9:24-27, as a prerequisite to Jesus' coming a 2nd time.
The time between the 5th & 6th
Feasts i.e. the Feast of Trumpets & the Feast of Atonement is known as:
The 10 days “Days of Awe”
/ “Affliction” i.e. a time to repent between the
Feast of Trumpets & the Feast
of Atonement before Judgment, culminating at Jubilee; 1 day after
Atonement, which starts at the 50th year; aka Jubilee
/ Millennial Kingdom.
See: “Trumpets to Atonement to Jubilee” & The Last Trumpet
Israel’s holy year is the Jubilee
Year. The timing of Jubilee was to years (50)
what the timing of Feast of Weeks (Shavuot
/ Pentecost) is to days (50). The Feast of Weeks (Shavuot / Pentecost)
occurs on the 50th
day; the day after seven weeks, plus 1 day after Passover.
The Jubilee Year occurs every 50th year; the year after seven Sabbatical
years (49 years), Lev. 25:8-11.
Jubilee: 50th year; captives set free at end of the Feast of Atonement, Lev. 25:8-11
Jubilee is composed of 7 Sabbatical years of 7 years =
49 + 1 year of Jubilee = 50 years. Jubilee starts at the end of 49th year after the
Feast of Atonement (Final Judgment)
Luke 21:32 Jesus said: “….
This generation shall not pass away, until all be fulfilled.”
Generation See Jesus on 'Last Days' Mark 13:28-32
40 years = generation see Psalm 95:10, Ezek. 29:11 & Num. 14:33-34
+ 10 years “Days of Awe” (10 days Repentance;
Feast of Trumpets to Atonement)
Rev. 2: 8-11, Lev. 23:24-27
("... I have appointed thee each day for a year."
(40 yr.; Mark 13:28-32) (10 Days
of Awe) (50 yr.; Lev 25:9-11)
40 years =
Ps. 95:10, Ezek. 29:11, Num. 14:33-34, Num. 32:13
On the 10 days of Awe between the Feast
of Trumpets & the Feast of Atonement, see Rev. 2: 8-11, Lev. 23:24-27
10 = 50 (40 yr, Generation + 10 Years Days of Awe = Jubilee)
7 + 1 = 50 (7 Sabbatical Years of 7 Years +1 = Jubilee)
x 7 + 1 = 50
7 Sabbaths of 7 days + 1 day following Passover
= 50 days
x 7 + 1 = 50;
7 Sabbatical Years of 7 Years + 1 = Jubilee
- Jubilee follows 7 Sabbatical years of 7-year periods
49 + 1 Year of Jubilee = 50
Jubilee: Captives set free on 50th year,
i.e. Millennial Kingdom
- Jubilee on 11th day of 7th
+ 10 = 50;
40 yr, Generation + 10 Years Days of Awe = Jubilee
- Jesus arose
and spent 40 of the 50 days with them after His Resurrection,
days until the Holy Spirit was sent at Pentecost.
- Moses 40 days on
Mt Sinai + 10 commandments = 50 days
- 40 years
= Generation, see: Psalm 95:10,
Ezek. 29:11, Num. 14:33-34
- Jews in wilderness 40 years for a generation to die, Num. 32:13
- Jesus in wilderness 40 days
- Saul, David & Solomon all ruled 40 years
destroyed 40 years after Jesus started his ministry.
- 10 years “Days of Awe”
/ Tribulation / Repentance; Trumpets to Atonement
days Tribulation; see
Rev. 2: 8-11, Lev. 23:24-27

Note the feasts' relationship to God’s
ordained numerical sequencing:
7 day week
ending on a Sabbath
7 months of 7 feasts ending on the ultimate
Sabbath, the Feast of Tabernacles
years culminating in a Sabbatical year
7 Sabbatical years of 7
years culminating at the Year of Jubilee
7 weeks of
7 days to the Feast of Weeks / Shavuot / Pentecost
70 periods of 7 (Dan. 9:24-27) “End of the Age” prophecy
7 year period at the “End of the Age” (Dan. 9:24-27’s: The
70th 7-year period)
70 years symbol of Completion;
Jer. 29:10-14; 30:3,7,11,24; 31:31-34, 38-40; also Ezek. 38:18; 39:6,8,11-12, 14 (7 months),
21; Rev. 16:16-17 & 17:1
SUMMARY: Therefore, the 7-year “End of the Age” period is in the 7th Sabbatical of 7 years.
During the last 7 years in the 10
years 'Days of Awe', starting on the Feast of Trumpets in the 4th
year, of the 10 years 'Days of Awe', with the “counting”
starting in 1967 when Israel had the ability to “restore and rebuild
Jerusalem” and had been reborn in 1948 as “one nation
in the latter days”.
End of the Age:
1967 + 40 + 10
year Generation + 10 Days (Feast of Trumpets to Feast of Atonement)
1967 + 50
= 2017; 1967 + 50 years to Year of Jubilee aka
1948 + 70 = 2018
Note: From 1967
END of 40 years is 2008
The end of 50 years
is 2018 - completes 70 years
The END of 70 years is 2019
The year between 2018 - 2019 represents Jubilee;
Aka Millennial Kingdom
/ Marriage Supper of the Lamb
Note: Biblically, the first month starts in
the month of Nissan (approximately April or May) in 2017.

"Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion:
for the time to favor her, yea, the set time, is come. … So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings
of the earth thy glory. When the LORD shall build up Zion, He
shall appear in his glory." Ps. 102:113-116
The 7 Feasts of the Lord as outlined in Leviticus 23 outlines God’s redemptive plan
for mankind: These 7 Feasts are prophecies related to God’s calendar of redeeming grace for all mankind, and is the foundation upon
which ALL of Scripture is based.
Just as Jesus fulfilled the
prophecies related to His first coming in the first 4 four feasts, Jesus is about to fulfill the 5th
& 6th feasts of Trumpets and Atonement. The 7th
and last feast, called the Feast of Tabernacles, will be fulfilled at a later time after the Millennial Kingdom.

if the watchman see the sword come, and blows not the trumpet, and the people be

will I require at the watchman's hand. So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a
watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at
My mouth, and warn them from Me. When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not
speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine
hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not
turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul."
