Revealing Jesus The Christ The Messiah The Prince


Isaiah 42:6-7 6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; 7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

Malachi 3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

Jesus' Covenant Confirming Period in Daniel 9:27 was from His Baptism to His crucifixion!

Daniel 9:27a 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...

Jesus was REVEALED to be Israel' Messiah at His Baptism by John the Baptist.

John 1:31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.

Some 1185 days after His baptism, Jesus eternally confirmed the Covenant for all believers.

John 19:30  When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

This is what Jesus finished in the MIDST of Daniel's 70th WEEK for all believers.

Daniel 9:24a 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...

Hebrews 10:8-10 8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Jesus confirmed the Covenant WITH MANY as believe!

John 1:11-12 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Jesus' Covenant Fulfilling Period from His baptism to His death in prophetic years of 360 days, was 1080 + 105 days = 1185 days, meeting the qualification of being in the “MIDST” of the week, and can be correlated with three sets of figures given by Daniel pertaining to the last week in his 70 Weeks of years. We only have 1335 days left to be fulfilled in Daniel’s 70th week.

Daniel 12:11–12 11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

Daniel 9:25-26a  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: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself...

The decree was not Cyrus' to build the Temple, nor Darius the Persian's, which was only a reordering of Cyrus'. Indeed the decree was one of Artaxerxes Longimanus' to restore Jerusalem to its Law under God through Ezra and to build Jerusalem's streets, walls, and gates through Nehemiah even in troublous times as the inspired text clearly states.  I believe by faith in God's word that from Artaxerxes' decree unto the revealing of Jesus the Messiah (the Christ) it was 7 weeks (49 years) + 62 weeks (434 years) = 69 WEEKS (483 years). Therefore, linguistically speaking, it was a total of 69 weeks (483 years) from Artaxerxes' decree to restore and build Jerusalem unto Jesus' Baptism by John when He was revealed as Messiah to Israel. In Hebrew literary style it is understood that the 7 weeks (49 years) had also been completed, which was the approximate time period in rebuilding Jerusalem in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah. The 62 WEEKS (434 years) was during the inter-Biblical period seen in Daniel chapter 8 and chapter 11:1-35. Therefore, the text states AFTER 62 WEEKS with an understanding that it was in reality AFTER 69 WEEKS (483 years). Jesus the Messiah was not cut off AT the 62 WEEKS or He would have been cut off long before He was born. Nor was He cut off AT the 69th WEEK because the inspired Text clearly states the Messiah was cut off AFTER the understood 69th WEEK. Therefore, Jesus the Messiah indeed went into the 70th (LAST) Week. How far? Daniel 9:27a 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...

Jesus the Messiah was cut off some 1185 days (in the Midst) of the 70th (LAST) WEEK. Daniel's Prophetic Clock stopped ticking at Messiah's cutting off by crucifixion leaving 1335 days to be fulfilled, not a full 7 years. When Daniel's king of the north, the Islamic Syrian Antichrist, ATTACKS Israel suddenly from Syria, Daniel's prophetic clock of 70 WEEKS will begin to tick from the exact moment it stopped, that is, when Jesus took away the daily sacrifice by the offering of Himself in the MIDST of the LAST WEEK, that is, some 1185 days into the Last Week.

Daniel 12:11–12 11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and

the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand

two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh

to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

Daniel 11:40  And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

When Jesus was cut off by crucifixion some 1185 days in the MIDST of the 70th Week, Daniels clock of 70 Weeks of years stopped ticking leaving 1335 days to yet be fulfilled. At the time of the end when the Syrian Antichrist attacks Israel from the north, Daniel's 70 Weeks of years clock will begin to tick from the exact moment it stopped when Messiah was cut off by crucifixion. Some 1290 days after Antichrist attacks Israel, he will move his command post from Egypt to Israel on the Temple mount and claim to be God in the flesh. This will be the abomination of desolation.

1335 Days Diagram

Event 1 – Israel is attacked 1335 days before the end of the Tribulation Period

Event 2 – Some 30 days later the two witnesses begin their testimony in Israel when Jerusalem falls.

Event 3 – Some 45 days later the IDF is driven south to Beersheba and the United Nations brokers a truce or hudna is agreed to by Islam and Israel.

Event 4 – Israel remains surrounded in the Negev Wilderness for some 1260 days after the truce agreement.

Event 5 – Some 45 days before the end of the Age of the Gentiles the two witnesses will be killed by the Antichrist after having testified for 42 months (1260 days). The Antichrist will declare himself to be God on the Temple Mount – This is the abomination “that maketh desolate.”

Event 6 – Three and one half days later three events occur in rapid succession.

They all three occur on the same day. I call them boom, boom, boom.

Boom 1 – The two witnesses ascend up to heaven through the clouds.

Boom 2 – A great earthquake occurs in the same hour the two witnesses depart.

Boom 3 – The last trump (7th) Trump sounds and all the saved are caught up.

Who is the other prince in Daniel 9:26?

Daniel 9:26  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.

The people of the prince and the prince in Daniel 9:26b are subordinate to the discourse. The prince was Titus who after surrounding Jerusalem overflowed it like a flood with armies in 70 AD. The war went on for some 3 years and throughout there were many desolations with the last fall at Masada in 73 AD. Daniel 9:26b is given to show what would happen to Israel because of what they did in 9:26a, namely, they cut off their Messiah. Daniel 9:26b, the destruction of Jerusalem and the generation which had Him crucified, was taught by Jesus in the Gospels by parables,  in the Olivet Discourse, and while carrying His cross to be crucified. 

What a difference a HE makes! Jesus Confirmed the Covenant with AS MANY AS believe Him. He eternally confirmed the Covenant with his blood on the cross and took away all the sacrifices that pictured what He would do to confirm it.

Daniel 9:27  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.

Please note that "abominations" is plural not singular. This is not referring to the Prince in Daniel 9:26 or the Antichrist. Because of the overspreading of ABOMINATIONS the Jews were committing in the Temple, and after Jesus cleansed it on two occasions during His 1st and 4th Covenant Passover, He left it spiritually desolate. The Temple, House of Israel,  will remain spiritually desolate until the end of the Gentile Age at Messiah's 2nd Advent. And God's wrath in 7 Revelation Vials following the 7th (LAST) Trumpet will be poured out on all those who are desolate of God's Spirit.

Matthew 23:38-39 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Revelation 11:15a And the seventh angel sounded; Revelation 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Revelation 16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
