Democrat President Truman signs Israel back into a Nation in 1948!
Israel Restored – Ezekiel 36 – 37 – Israel was restored as a nation by Democrat Harry S. Truman.
Ezekiel 37:7 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together …
Why Did God Restore Israel?
God restored Israel for His Holy Name and not because of any greatness of Israel. Ezekiel 36:22 “Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations wherever you went.
The Most Important Truth to understand in End times events!
The most import truth to know in Eschatology or end times events is to understand the 70 weeks prophesy!
If this basic truth is not grasp or understood than why study end time prophesy? It makes no sense because the book of Revelation can’t be understood without knowing the 70 weeks prophesy!
If you just like to push articles around on emotion but don’t take the time to understand the basic 70 weeks prophesy then you are susceptible to accept any person persuasion and then the next person seems correct going from one person to the next!
From a Biblical point of view, you should be able to explain the 70-week prophesy to your friend using a chart as outlined here.
Knowing this basic 70-week prophesy will cause you to believe without a doubt the precise truth God is communication to those who search out His treasuries!
Daniel gave the exact time and predicted precisely when Jesus would die on the cross! Did you know that?
Daniel gives exact times to know precisely when the Seven-Year-Tribulation will begin even with details of events to happen at midpoint. The book of Revelation will then fill in the details!
Where does the Seven-Year-Tribulation come from?
Many people start in the book of Revelation to interpret End Time events and therefore come up with erroneous doctrines.
You could never establish the Seven-Year-Tribulation from the book of Revelation. You have to go back to the book of Daniel to get this!
The book of Daniel is the Key to the book of Revelation or the thumbnail blueprint that provides the foundations for End Time events.
70 times 7 Weeks or 490 years – Do the Math!
To understand this prophecy, one must simply understand what the Biblical term for the meaning of weeks.
Look at the chart above and don’t let it scare you. Just concern yourself with yellow strip at the bottom of the chart “Daniel 9, the 70 weeks“for now.
Ask yourself, what does a week mean to you? It means seven days. But for Biblical interpretation just substitute the seven days for seven years. I’ll provide a link to get more understanding below. For now, just to get started, please accept that.
So for example if we have 1 week in Biblical meaning, it’s 1 times a week which equals 7 years.
And for example, if we have 7 weeks, its 7 times 7 weeks which is 49 years.
There are seventy weeks or 70 * 7 or 490 years to complete the end of transgression for Israel, Daniel 9:24. Notice it states this is for Israel.
Look at the chart and let’s do the math!
Again refer to the yellow box highlighted above: showing 7 weeks or 7 * Seven weeks equal 49 years in rebuilding the walls and the city Jerusalem.
- Starting with 7 weeks or calculated to years is 7 * 7 = 49 years – From the decree to build Wall of Jerusalem to restoration of the city Jerusalem.
- Then count 62 weeks * Seven or 434 years from completion of wall and you end up at 33 AD where Christ on Psalm Sunday as we call it is rejected by the Jews and will die shortly on the cross as the Messiah is cut off! At the moment the Jews reject Christ, the Time clock stops and there is 1 week remaining or Seven Years left known as the Tribulation on the time clock.
- Again it’s 49 years + 434 years = 483 years total from the start of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem to the cut off of Christ and that leaves 1 week left to add up to 490 years to end sin which is the Seven year Tribulation period yet to be fulfilled! That is 490 years before sin is completely cut off per Daniel 9:24!
What’s so great about the 444 B. C. Decree?
What’s so great about using the 444 B.C. Date is the fact that it uses a prophetic year (360 days) instead of the Gregorian Calendar year (365 days). There are solid biblical reasons for looking at this prophecy from a prophetic year perspective as opposed to any other type of year. 483 prophetic years is equal to 173,880 days (360 days X 483 years = 173,880 days). Going forward in time (the year 0 is skipped) from March 4, 444 B.C. (Neh. 2:1-8) 483 prophetic years would bring you out around March 30, A.D.33. which could easily be the date of the Jesus Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem found in Matthew 21. This would then be followed by His crucifixion on April 3rd A.D.33. https://jewishroots.net/library/prophecy/daniel/daniel-9-24-27/royal-decree.html
Daniel 9:25 – Predicted Messiah Palm Sunday
The command in Daniel 9:25 is where God starts His time clock at the “restore and build Jerusalem” until the Messiah the Prince which is Psalm Sunday.
Using Nehemiah 2:1 as the starting point, March 5, 444 B.C. and taking it to Palm Sunday, March 30, 33 A.D. to where Jesus riding on a colt. Landing up at Palm Sunday is exactly 69 weeks or 69 * 7 = 483 years from the command, going forth to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem to the Messiah the Prince!
Daniel 9:26 – Two Predictions: Messiah dies on Cross & 2nd Temple destruction 70 A. D.
The prediction of Christ to die on the cross and the destruction of Jerusalem and the 2nd temple destroyed have been fulfilled!
When did the prophetic time clock stop?
This is where God’s time clock stops because the Jews reject Christ and Christ dies on the cross for mankind! This calculation is done using a Jewish 360 days a year and omitting leap years. This leave 7 years remaining on God’s time table for end times fulfillment of Daniel 9:24.
Daniel 9:27 – Restarts God’s Time Clock: 7 Yr. Tribulation, 3rd Temple
Notice Daniel 9:27 – is when the 7-year tribulation begins specifically by the Anti-Christ offering a 7-year peace treaty to Israel. At this point, Gods time clock starts again! This single passage lets the reader know for certainty when the 7-year tribulation begins!
The Preterist as defined as those declaring these events happened already in 70 A. D. have not read their Bibles correctly! Never has there been a peace treaty signed with Israel for seven years!
Preterist are even at a loss of words as to why Israel is a Nation today.
What happens at the Midway point of the Tribulation?
At the midway point of the Tribulation, is where Jesus in Matthew 24 talks about the abominations of desolation where some despicable sacrifice is offered and immediately the Jews know that they have been worshiping the Anti-Christ and Jesus instructs them to flee to the mountains. Sacrifices will stop!
Prophecy not yet fulfilled!
Notice the Abomination of desolation prophesy has not been fulfilled yet because Israel was not a nation at the time of Antiochus Epiphanes.
Antiochus Epiphanes was certainly a type of Anti-Christ during the 167—166 BC for his deplorable acts in sacrifices but again Jesus spoke of a future fulfillment in Mathew 24.
Did Jerusalem become the capital of Israel by chance?
Without predicting dates of the rapture of the church, but looking at world events as end times unfold; Jerusalem has been declared the capital of Israel aided by the USA.
Some may think perhaps that these events are happening by chance. See short music video of the rebirth of Israel.
Can Israel brag about their Faithfulness to God?
Certainly, Israel is not a nation where God can brag about them in their faithfulness to Him!
They have defiled the land and shed blood! They have profaned the name of God and worshiped idols from the surrounding lands so God scattered them throughout the nations for their wickedness Ezekiel 36-37
They were to be a nation that would show Gods mercy to other nations and lead them to their God but they failed, Exodus 12:48-49, Isaiah 56:3, 6 & 7.
Jews continue to Reject Jesus as Savior!
The Jews also rejected Jesus as their messiah and did not perceive that their messiah would come as a rejected savior but as one that would be their powerful king and live forever and bring justice to them! John 12:34
However, God’s plan was to blind Israel for a time so that Gentles or the church age could be born, Romans 11:25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
Pass it on for other Christians in the body to enjoy!
