KEEP IN MIND the tools of the enemy:

- scatter the sheep
- destroy the sheep
“The missing seven years from Daniel, when you read the book of Revelation that’s what you’re reading about.” Jonathan Cahn, 2019 New York Times bestseller.
Wrong, the missing seven years are a phantom responsible for the sales of many a book, movie, and TV series – all fiction.
Gabriel’s 70 weeks as given to Daniel has already occurred, it’s history. What remains is 42 months, or 1260 days of judgment through Yom YHWH. In this article you’ll learn the reality of “Daniel’s 70th Week” and how many an author fell prey to the evolved theory that currently grips Christianity while enticing the secular world to ever astounding fiction and profit.
“And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, ‘See ye not all these things? Truly I say to you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.’ And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, tell us,
- when shall these things be?
- and what shall be the sign of thy coming?
- and of the end of the world?
In the Gospels (Matthew 24:1-51, Mark 13:1-37, Luke 21:5-38) the Messiah lays out perfectly what will occur. This is not difficult to understand and part of history. The 70th week occurred when Titus (39 – 81 AD) and four Roman legions laid siege to Jerusalem during Pesach or Passover.
I know there is a ton of argument about this, but please continue so you can understand the confusion of this centuries old false teaching.
The four legions are thus:
- XII Fulminata
- XV Apollinaris
- V Macedonica
- X Fretensis
The four month siege resulted in hundreds of thousand of deaths, Jerusalem burned to the ground, and the Beit Hamikdash (Holy Temple) destroyed. The leaders defending the city, Simon bar Giora was paraded through the streets of Rome then executed and John of Gischala was given life in prison.
The Arch of Titus, located in Rome, depicts the legion carrying the Menorah in victory after destroying the Temple (the Menorah is a sacred vessel handled only by Levitical Kohanim).
Erected by Emperor Domitian in AD 81-82 to commemorate his brother Titus’ military campaigns and the destruction of Jerusalem, the arch is a stark reminder to the remnant of Israel of the loss of the 2nd Beit HaMikdash.
The Israelites taken captive took part in many construction projects for the glory of Rome, one being Emperor Vespasian’s Colosseum. In the arena the captive Jews fought as gladiators, forced to kill their neighbors and family members. The Hollywood movie versions fail to give that account, but rather glorify Rome as a light to the world, not a heinous murdering slaughterhouse.
The end of the war capitulated with Emperor Nero killed by his secretary (a suicide) and Vespasian eventually succeeding him as Emperor. Vespasian’s son Titus was the celebrated victor in Rome as the fourth person in history to sack Jerusalem, the jewel of the Middle East.
As believers in HaMashiach we have listened to many men and women preaching from the pulpit that the 70 weeks as given to Navi Yirmeyahu, the prophet Jeremiah, and Daniel through the angel Gabriel, that the prophecy relates to Christianity.
The 70 weeks absolutely have nothing to do with Christians, or the elect – nothing whatsoever.
The prophecy of Daniel 9:24 relates ONLY:
- for the Jews; NOT the Saints, or Christians, or secular world.
- for the holy city Jerusalem.
Anyone who adds End Times philosophy in here is doing so by their own imagination. I apologize for the ‘all caps’ writing, but this needs to be clear as scripture specifically and literally states what is reality – anything added, like light sabers, is imagination or blatant theory.
Before we go further, you need to understand the three translations:
- Hebrew (10th century Masoretic)
- Greek (5th century Byzantine)
- Latin (4th century Vulgate)
The translation of the Bible for English occurred around 1604 AD for the King James Version. The oldest version of a Bible is the Catholic Latin Vulgate (AD 405). In fact, the oldest fragment of the Gospel of Luke is Papyrus 75 (AD 175 – 225), written in Alexandrian text type which varies from the more modern Byzantine text.
If you translate scripture yourself from the Greek you will render a different reading on many verse; go ahead and do it yourself.
Lets compare translations of Daniel 9:26.
Daniel 9:26 (My Greek translation):
And after the sixty and two weeks the anointed is broken and judged, but not for himself, and the city and the Saints to be destroyed by a leader and those to come as a deluge and until the end of war is stopped by the orderly destruction.
Daniel 9:26 KJV
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
A little different huh?
In the modern LXX Septuagint verse there is no Greek word for sanctuary, or prince, and anointed is the term used for Messiah.
The Greek word for prince is, πρίγκιπας, which is not found within the verse.
The Greek word for sanctuary is άσυλο, which is not found within the verse.
So why are the words there?
Well, the six committees set up for translation used what was the best match comparing in the 16th & 17th century from Hebrew/Greek/Latin to Ol’ English. However, those words were additions. The correct translated word for prince is ‘a leader’ and for sanctuary is ‘a city.’
Now of course 99% of the population is NEVER going to do translations for oneself. Those of us who do study and communicate biblical scripture have a responsibility to follow YHWH and His word as handed down through the ages.
We do so understanding that the King James Version of Masoretic and Textus Receptus DOES NOT always render a proper Hebrew, Greek, or Latin translation to Ol’ English verbage, especially Daniel 9:24-27.
In fact, Arabic and Hebrew are read, translated, right from left and boustrophedon, which alternates every other line, right to left – left to right. If you do not understand what was just said, it just means it’s very easy to make a scribal error.
Greek can be translated to where the entire verse reads from the bottom of the verse up. To suggest one block of text is out of order in paragraph is merely stating reality when it comes to translation.
That is why scholars performing textual criticism must be educated in multiple extant manuscript, which is multiple languages, modern and historic, to understand the verse they are rendering, the order, and collation of such.
Modern laymen and preachers lacking understanding how scripture translates from Greek/Hebrew/Latin to English mistakenly believe Daniel 9:27 is rendering a verse with the “abomination of desolation” coming after the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus of Rome in AD 70.
They base this conclusion on one (1) block of text out of order and have come up with a myriad of fantasy rather than consult an expert of extant manuscript. Failure to understand a verse of script, IMHO, does not give anyone the right to imagine and publish crazy ideas about the word of Adonai Eloheinu.
The end result is theories such as, “The 69 weeks stop…and we are still waiting for the 70th week,” as taught by so many erroneously today.
It’s our job to understand the different translations, to search them out and render by way of the Holy Spirit. Can we trust print companies and academic committee to render accordingly by the spirit of YHWH?
To each who has the ability granted we serve. Not everyone can be a doctor, nurse, or mechanic, nor a scribe. When it comes to the 70th week, the MASS CONFUSION for Christians is based on the last part of Gabriels 70 weeks, Daniel 9:27 in particular.
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”
Clearly in the last 3 ½ years of the war against the Jews (66 – 70 AD), Vespasian nor Titus entered the Temple, or took away karbanot (animal sacrifice and mitzvoh offerings).
In fact, when Titus siege Jerusalem on Passover, karbanot was in full swing until stopped by John of Gischala and his 6,000 men mounting a defense against the Romans. So we know without a doubt that the abomination of desolation did not occur in AD 70, which is agreed upon.
In Josephus Book VI of The Wars of the Jews, the Temple was set ablaze during the siege as recorded so vividly thousands of years ago,
“So Titus retired into the tower of Antonia, and resolved to storm the temple the next day, early in the morning, with his whole army, and to encamp round about the holy house. But as for that house, God had, for certain, long ago doomed it to the fire; and now that fatal day was come, according to the revolution of ages; it was the tenth day of the month Lous, upon which it was formerly burnt by the king of Babylon;
although these flames took their rise from the Jews themselves, and were occasioned by them; for upon Titus’s retiring, the seditious lay still for a little while, and then attacked the Romans again, when those that guarded the holy house fought with those that quenched the fire that was burning the inner [court of the] temple; but these Romans put the Jews to flight, and proceeded as far as the holy house itself.
At which time one of the soldiers, without staying for any orders, and without any concern or dread upon him at so great an undertaking, and being hurried on by a certain divine fury, snatched somewhat out of the materials that were on fire, and being lifted up by another soldier, he set fire to a golden window, through which there was a passage to the rooms that were round about the holy house, on the north side of it.
As the flames went upward, the Jews made a great clamor, such as so mighty an affliction required, and ran together to prevent it; and now they spared not their lives any longer, nor suffered any thing to restrain their force, since that holy house was perishing, for whose sake it was that they kept such a guard about it.”
This is a first hand account from Josephus, a captive Israelite that served Titus, witnessing the battle as it ensued. Josephus in his historical writings as a scribe was bound to flattery of Titus, anything else would be his death.
Had Titus entered the Temple for desecration, Josephus would have recorded it as he did with Antiochus Epiphanes IV. Instead we find the Beit HaMikdash ablaze at the hands of a foot soldier in the melee of battle. The works of Josephus and his story can be read freely online.
Christian doctrine, led by a few men in history, go on to teach that Gabriels 70 weeks stop at the 69th week, for several thousand years, and that we are still waiting for the 70th week! This of course is beyond speculative to that of absolute fantasy imagination. Yet if you look at the majority of websites who claim to be some kind of authority out there, or bestseller books ranging back since the 1960’s, you will always see something to the tune of,
“Now, the prophecy seems to stop… there is a gap in the prophecy between the 69th and 70th week… which has not yet occurred.”
The majority of Christian writers echo this fantasy.
Worse, this line of thinking has made Christianity ridiculous to the public and very confused for those who would actually believe upon Christ. Instead they are overwhelmed with rapture theory birthed out of these vain imaginations and TV shows of which the secular world runs the ball with, all the while blaspheming our Adonai.
When you see book and cable TV series of shows like “Good Omens,” written by anti-Christian authors who promote satanism, witchcraft, and all things confusion for Christians, we know the corrupted theories, like the rapture, and pre-tribulation, have done their job for the dark side.
Abomination of Desolation
The abomination of desolation which surrounds the false teaching on the 70th week is also a misunderstood historical significance. The act in itself is the actual desecration of the inner sanctum of Beit HaMikdash, the Holy Temple, of which only the high priest Kohen Gadol may enter. This is performed by setting up a statue of a false god, where the Ark of the Covenant rest, or by slaughtering a forbidden animal upon the altar, such as a pig, as Antiochus Epiphanes did in 167 BC.
Seeing that 2,000 years have passed since Titus of Rome, it’s pretty clear the 2nd Holy Temple destruction was not the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel or Jesus, but how do we know this? The real question is, how many times in history has there been an abomination of desolation?
There were only two Temples historically in Israel. The first Temple built by Solomon and the second built under Zechariah and refurbished by Herod, but this is not the only time abomination had occurred. The first record we see is under Samuel during the Iron Age (1200 – 550 BC) that the Ark of the Covenant is taken captive by the Philistines.
“Then the Philistines took the ark of God and brought it from Ebenezer to Ashdod. When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon and set it by Dagon. And when the people of Ashdod arose early in the morning, there was Dagon, fallen on its face to the earth before the ark of the Lord.” 1 Samuel 5:1-3
The Ark was with the Philistines for seven months and they kept moving it around as everywhere it went the people would break out in tumors. The Philistines consulted their seers, which advised to make five tumor balls of gold and five images of golden rats for all the plagues happening in the country to represent the five Lords of the Philistines.
They loaded the offering into a man-less cart pulled by cows to see if the cows would go in the right direction (back to Israel) which it did straight away, confirming the plagues were not by chance, but by the anger of YHWH.
There are accounts of Jews breaking into the Temple over the years and stealing Holy vessels, but the next occurrence of a foreign hand amidst the Ark of the Covenant happened during the first Temple about 600 years later.
Around 587 BC, Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple creating the first diaspora, however, there is no record of any abomination, such as a statue setup, or desecration of the altar.
The foreign power did enter the inner sanctum of Beit HaMikdash and put their hands on the Holy vessels, which is abomination. Millions of deaths resulted from the destruction. The angel Gabriel prophecy to Daniel is about the fate of the second Temple under King Herod, the Messiah to come, and end of the age.
Fast forward 420 years to the Hellenistic Empire birthed from the triumphs of Alexander the Great. Oliver Stone made the movie “Alexander” in 2004 starring a slew of famous celebrities depicting the rising power of Macedonia. Once Alexander dies the empire splits off into four kingdoms and the Hellenist period begins with a host of rulers from Turkey to India.
Antiochus Epiphanes IV (215 BC – 164 AD), real name Mithradates like his grandfather King of Pontus, is the hell spawn from this long line of Hellenist kings. His father Antiochus III Megas and brother Seleucus IV were Seleucid kings swallowing up land to expand their empire, while little Mithradates plotted until he was able to seize his throne through murdering an infant baby in line to succession.
Antiochus sister is Cleopatra I, Queen of Egypt, not the famous Cleopatra VII who married and committed suicide with Mark Antony. Antiochus and Cleopatra shared the same mother Laodice III, daughter of Mithradates II of Pontus.
Mithradates changed his name to Antiochus Epiphanes (manifestation of the god) upon ascension to the throne in 175 BC and was obviously a delusional psychopath who believed himself a deity.
Again as recorded by Josephus some two thousand years ago shows with striking detail what the antichrist or beast Moshiach will do to society the world over.
“Now it came to pass, after two years, in the hundred forty and fifth year, on the twenty-fifth day of that month which is by us called Chasleu, and by the Macedonians Apelleus, in the hundred and fifty-third olympiad, that the king (Antiochus) came up to Jerusalem, and, pretending peace, he got possession of the city by treachery; at which time he spared not so much as those that admitted him into it, on account of the riches that lay in the temple; but, led by his covetous inclination, [for he saw there was in it a great deal of gold, and many ornaments that had been dedicated to it of very great value,] and in order to plunder its wealth, he ventured to break the league he had made.
So he left the temple bare, and took away the golden candlesticks, and the golden altar [of incense], and table [of shew-bread], and the altar [of burnt-offering]; and did not abstain from even the veils, which were made of fine linen and scarlet. He also emptied it of its secret treasures, and left nothing at all remaining; and by this means cast the Jews into great lamentation, for he forbade them to offer those daily sacrifices which they used to offer to God, according to the law.
And when he had pillaged the whole city, some of the inhabitants he slew, and some he carried captive, together with their wives and children, so that the multitude of those captives that were taken alive amounted to about ten thousand.
He also burnt down the finest buildings; and when he had overthrown the city walls, he built a citadel in the lower part of the city, for the place was high, and overlooked the temple; on which account he fortified it with high walls and towers, and put into it a garrison of Macedonians.
However, in that citadel dwelt the impious and wicked part of the [Jewish] multitude, from whom it proved that the citizens suffered many and sore calamities. And when the king had built an idol altar upon God’s altar, he slew swine upon it, and so offered a sacrifice neither according to the law, nor the Jewish religious worship in that country. He also compelled them to forsake the worship which they paid their own God, and to adore those whom he took to be gods; and made them build temples, and raise idol altars in every city and village, and offer swine upon them every day.
He also commanded them not to circumcise their sons, and threatened to punish any that should be found to have transgressed his injunction. He also appointed overseers, who should compel them to do what he commanded. And indeed many Jews there were who complied with the king’s commands, either voluntarily, or out of fear of the penalty that was denounced.
But the best men, and those of the noblest souls, did not regard him, but did pay a greater respect to the customs of their country than concern as to the punishment which he threatened to the disobedient; on which account they every day underwent great miseries and bitter torments; for they were whipped with rods, and their bodies were torn to pieces, and were crucified, while they were still alive, and breathed.
They also strangled those women and their sons whom they had circumcised, as the king had appointed, hanging their sons about their necks as they were upon the crosses. And if there were any sacred book of the law found, it was destroyed, and those with whom they were found miserably perished also.” 
The above chapter of Josephus work clearly outlines the abomination of desolation and what will happen again under the dark Messiah.
Antiochus set up a Greek idol in the sanctum and sacrificed swine upon the altar for offerings to a false god and ordered this to be done throughout all the land, while heinously murdering thousands of Israelite’s, which created the Maccabees revolt.
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Daniel 9:27
Why the account of Antiochus is debated as NOT being the abomination of desolation for the Book of Daniel is mind boggling.
This is also why academia disagree with Christian theology – as they do argue this IS the abomination of desolation as spoken by Jesus, they just don’t understand the context of best Moshiach to come.
The very people who spend their lives at dig sites around the world and uncovering vast stories behind Biblical scripture are ignored when it comes to any historical facts that override an accepted, supposed, prophetic theory. Especially, since these archaeologists are generally secular, or atheist.
I do agree, an atheist will never have the insight of a spiritually minded person, but you can be skilled at your job. Just because you’re an atheist does not mean poor performance on the job when it comes to anthropology. Secular academia is void of receiving understanding or insight that is given only by Ruach HaKodesh.
The mysteries are hidden to academia as YHWH had granted to Jeremiah and Daniel. However, for Christians to be ignorant of reality when it comes to historical fact, justifies the admonishment by academia.
In that Christians will believe in their fantasies as Saint Paul and Jesus warned about many times. Again, fantasies dreamed up out of the minds of a few men in history when concerning Gabriel’s 70 weeks to Daniel.
“Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, ‘My lord, what shall be the end of these things?’ And he said, ‘Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.
And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.
But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.’” Daniel 12:8-13
Above is the last chapter of the Book of Daniel concerning the end of the age for humanity. We know historically that nothing occurred after 1,335 days of Antiochus Epiphanes as this is referring to the time of HaMashiach reign on earth as vividly depicted in the Book of Revelation, which is broadly misinterpreted as well.
In fact, after Antiochus Eiphanes dies, his son Antiochus V takes over as king and continues the campaign of war against the Jews. Antiochus was only eleven years old when he rolled out to war with his commanding officer, General Lysias, equipped with over a hundred thousand soldiers, horsemen, and elephants to put down the Jewish rebellion against the Greek citadel in Jerusalem.
The young Antiochus strutted his way through Jerusalem and ordered the walls taken down after promising not to destroy the inhabitants of the city. Imagine, a child coming into your city and ripping down your walls as your conqueror, what shame the Israelites suffered during this time!
You don’t see many preachers or academia talking about Antiochus V or the continual wars AFTER Antiochus Epiphanes, which prove without a doubt, the angels 1,335 day prophecy given to Daniel has nothing to do with Gabriel’s 70 weeks abomination of desolation.
This is the confusion, Christians and authors mistakenly believe that the 1,335 days is the same prophecy as the 70 weeks. Thereby, men in history assumed only 69 weeks of the prophecy occurred.
The unknowing today copy the previous thoughts of these confused men and echo the same false teaching to the population. Those who preach such – preach confusion. If you believe in Christ, repent, prostrate on the ground, so that Adonai Eashoa, Jesus, may heal and deliver you.
Seeing men who profess Christ Jesus as Lord preach false tribulation theory since the 1960’s brings me to ask YHWH why He has allowed such confusion to spread? The answer I believe is that during the 60’s Christian doctrine was competing with communism, growing occult witchcraft, and political chaos.
The tribulation concepts, although difficult to understand, allowed those seeking broader questions to mankind’s existence under the weight of perpetual collegiate philosophy onslaught, to grasp a vision of society from a Christian perspective. You are about to see with your own eyes the 70th week as it is – history. And after you can focus on the knowledge as YHWH allows to those whom He freely grants His spirit.
70 Weeks Verse Rearrangement
Now to show you the scribal mistake through Daniel 9:24 – 27 verse rearrangement. What we do here is take one block of verse and move it up one inch for Gabriels 70 weeks. The text in italics below is moved up one block from it’s previous position and, voila, all is well again:
24. Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, 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 Holy.
25. Know 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 weeks) the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
27. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
26. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.”
Do you see the difference? Verse 26 and 27 have traded places and now the scripture reads historically accurate.
By moving a block of text up one line – the entire passage now historically pans out perfectly. You can see this same occurrence in translation throughout the books of the Bible.
For those of you staring dumbfounded at what you’re reading, or want to argue with it, I’m sorry.
Realizing that you have erroneously taught and believed for thirty years or more the “Daniel 70th Week Concept” must be hard to deal with mentally.
It is definitely cognitive dissonance at it’s finest.
I don’t blame you, I also was taken by Hal Lindsey theory at a young age. We are still men and women of God and meant well, as did Hal Lindsey. It’s time to put off the shackle of deception and the modern lies that confuse and scatter the sheep.
More to the point, why would anyone speculate and generate ridiculous theories of the prophecy, i.e. moving into the future 2,000 years to finish out a remaining week of years? It doesn’t make any sense simply because it’s wrong; it was always an imagined theory folks.
Recognize reality, a block of text had been out of place by one inch.
Humans, as we are, instead of recognizing facts, invent theories to justify ideas in their head of laymen or those unskilled in language translation.
It really is that simple. With the one block rearrangement now history places perfectly:
- The 2nd Temple is built under Zechariah and Ezra around 539 BC.
- Gabriel gives Daniel 70 week timeline around 522 BC.
- Artaxeres decrees to rebuild Jerusalem 444 BC starting the 490 year clock.
- Antiochus Epiphanes IV commits the abomination of desolation 167 BC.
- Jesus is declared the Messiah in AD 33, 69 weeks (483 years) after Jerusalem decree.
- Titus destroys the 2nd Temple & Jerusalem in AD 70, as Gabriel & Jesus predicted.
- Gabriel’s 70 weeks fulfilled.
The 70 weeks have ended and now we await the beginning of the 1,290 days which include another abomination of desolation (there have been many in history) and the return of HaMashiach, Jesus the Messiah, to end the age according to the prophecy of an angel as given to Daniel below, which by the way, ends the Book of Daniel.
“And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.”
This angel is telling Daniel of the end of the age, NOT, the previous 70 week prophecy as given by Gabriel. These are 2 different angels and 2 different prophecy. Also, the previous chapter 11 of Daniel predicts, in entirety, a cross reference between the antichrist or dark Moshiac, and Antiochus Epiphanes who commits the abomination of desolation.
As they both, Antiochus and Onpiov antichrist as found in Revelation, are the same imbued entity (both possessed by Satan). This also is something difficult for the secular world to understand – that of possession.
Again, it really is that simple folks and renders scripture chronologically correct with ZERO, NADA, fantasy imagination, or Star Wars theory predictions. Just reading what has happened in history, proven by archaeology, and documented accounts of people who were there.
It’s not difficult to believe when copying the manuscripts a scribe had a verse out of place by one inch. Scribal errors are common knowledge. And we’re not talking about a misinterpretation of text here, only the text being out of place by a one inch margin, which resulted in ridiculous theories and philosophies over the last five hundred years!
Where the angel ends here for Daniel, the next visions and prophecy concerning Israel and Messiah are given to many prophets throughout history.
The end times concerning the abomination of desolation, Jesus return and reign on earth, and the future of the human race capitulate in the writings of the apostle John which is discussed in the chapters to follow.
- Modern Scholars reading Daniel 9:26 – 27, out of textual order, allegorize scripture with fantasy, mistaking the 70 weeks as not chronological, but separated by vast amounts of time.
- Since the 1960’s, authors who are not language experts, conceptualize theories based on previous false ideology about prophetic scripture and have retail success with such.
- The theory that there is thousands of years between the 69th and 70th week takes a foothold in modern Christianity as fact, not fiction, or theory.
- The rapture becomes a staple diet to Christians along with various stages of Revelation mixed in with the 70th week of Gabriel as the theories morph and evolve.
- The secular world latches onto the retail success of the Christian fictional stories and renders their conception of reality/sci-fi to the population.
The abomination seen with Antiochus Epiphanes, was a shadow of things to come. Titus destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple, was a shadow of things to come.
The Crusades, Capetians, Medieval Inquisition, Jewish expulsion in Europe, Hitler’s destruction of millions of Jews – all shadows of the great suffering to come with Yom YHWH. For these events in history portray an inkling of the suffering to come to the whole world.
The horrific events of history depict for all Jews and the Saints to know and understand what are the signs to see from experience of the past. To understand the beginnings of such tyranny, seizing of property, unjust taxation (Produit des Juifs), false treaty, laws for heretics, banishment, murder, genocide, all things suffered in diaspora for recognition of that Great Day.

Therefore shall heaven be shaken, and earth leap out of its place, at the fury of the LORD of Hosts on the day of His burning wrath.
The same man Antiochus Epiphanes was imbued with the power of the fallen angel to commit the abomination of desolation. The same antichrist, who many regard as Nero after the destruction in AD 70, is the same endowment who will possess the dark Moshiach that will be accepted by Judaism.
The argument of prophetic scripture fails to recognize the power that inflicts enslavement upon humanity. Academia have no understanding of this power and are controlled by these entity all the days of their lives.
Will you as a Christian be controlled by this same power? The very argument set forth of what scripture renders to the masses is empowered by the very force which seeks it’s dominance and destruction.
Thus, the confusion of scripture to render it void. To keep the blind and deaf shackled; all the people led by the blind and deaf.
