Previously, we established that End Time Believers have been provided 490 years of allotted prophetic time, with a 483 year phase being past fulfilled…

…leaving a seven year phase yet to be fulfilled.

This unfulfilled seven year phase is often referred to as the 70th Week of Daniel.

 

 

 

 

Identifying more details concerning this Final Seven Year Countdown will be the subject of this article.

 

TWO ADVENTS OF THE SON OF MAN

 

 

A quick review reveals that both phases conclude with advents of The Son of Man.

 

THE FIRST ADVENT

 

 

 

The first 483 years of Daniel’s 70 Weeks vision finished with the crucifixion of The Son of Man.

THE SECOND COMING

 

Notice that he 70th Week of Daniel is predicted to conclude with the second coming of the Son of Man.

 

SECOND COMING
ONE ON THE FIELD  –  Bower’s Bible Bolton England
BOTH PHASES BEGIN WITH OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS

Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto The Messiah shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.(Daniel 9:25 KJVm)

 

PHASE ONE began in 457 BC, with the issuing of a decree that restored the people of Israel back to Jerusalem after being in captivity in Babylon for 70 years.

PHASE ONE BEGAN WITH A DECREE

 

HE will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ HE will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple HE will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.” (Daniel 9:27 NIV)

PHASE TWO is predicted to begin with the confirmation of an official covenant.   According to the prophet Daniel, the Final Seven Year Countdown will begin with the confirmation of “a covenant” by an individual, which Daniel only recognizes as “he.”

 

BEGINS WITH THE CONFIRMATION OF A COVENANT

HE will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ HE will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple HE will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.” (Daniel 9:27 NIV)

 

The next event to transpire in this vision is predicted to occur in the “middle” of the Seven Year Countdown.

MIDDLE OF THE WEEK

HE will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ HE will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple HE will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.” (Daniel 9:27 NIV)

 

Where this same individual is going to desecrate the yet-to-be-built third temple by putting an “end to” the  “sacrifice and offerings” and “setting up” the “Abomination of Desolation.”

ABOLISH SACRIFICES

THE SON OF PERDITION

 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called Eloah, or that is worshipped; so that he as Elohim sitteth in the temple of Elohim, shewing himself that he is Elohim. (II Thessalonians 2:3-4 KJVm)

 

According to II Thessalonians chapter 2, the “Son-of-Perdition” is going to SET HIMSELF up in the yet-to-be-built Third Temple proclaiming HIMSELF to be Elohim.

HE will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ HE will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple HE will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”    (Daniel 9:27 NIV)

 

 

 

So the “he” and the Abomination of Desolation are one and the same.

 

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand: (Matthew 24:15 KJV)

 

 

 And according to the-Son-of-Man, when the Abomination of Desolation does “set himself” up in the Holy Place, know and understand…

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. (Matthew 24:21 KJV)

 

 …that this event is “the” sign, which indicates the start of the Great Tribulation, which we are forewarned about.

THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION          WILL CONFIRM THE COVENANT

HE will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ HE will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple HE will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”(Daniel 9:27 NIV)

 

And it is “he”, the Abomination of Desolation himself, that will confirm the covenant, which is the start of the final seven years.

 

And when this confirmation does occur, the final count down begins and three things will become apparent.

1. THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION IS REVEALED

First, The Abomination of Desolation is revealed for who he is. 

 

 

 

 

2 .  SEVEN YEARS TILL THE SECOND COMING

SEVEN YEARS TILL SECOND COMING
SEVEN YEARS TILL SECOND COMING

 

 

Secondly, The confirmation will indicate that the Final Seven Year countdown is in progress.  

 

 

 

 

Presently, no one knows the day-or-the-hour of the second coming.  However, according to Daniel’s vision, the minute this “covenant” is “confirmed,” seven years will remain till the second coming of The-Son-of-Man.

3.  3 ½ YEARS TILL THE START OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION

3 1/2 YEARS TILL THE GREAT TRIBULATION

 

Thirdly, the confirmation let’s us know that 3½ years will remain till the start of the Great Tribulation.

 

 

 

 

This is significant.  You now know that Elohim has provided a 3½ year window for you (and the rest of “the Remnant”) to be assembled in His divine  Place of Refuge in order to physically escape the predicted apocalypse.

THE PRIMARY SIGN

The confirmation of a covenant by the Abomination of Desolation is “the” Primary Sign, which will indicate that the Final Seven Countdown has begun.

THE SECONDARY SIGN

However, since 1948 Israel has signed many treaties. So, a Secondary Sign (which works in conjunction with the Primary Sign) has been provided to help us distinguish the covenant (we are to be watching for) from all other official documents. 

THE THIRD TEMPLE

This Secondary Sign is the construction of the third Temple.

DESECRATE IN THE MIDDLE

According to predictions, The Abomination of Desolation is going to desecrate and end the sacrifices of this yet to be built Temple, in the middle of the Final Seven Year Countdown.

 

 

However, in order for the Abomination of Desolation to desecrate it, the Third Temple must first be built.

So the event we are looking for is 1) the confirmation of a covenant or treaty at a time when Israel has built or begins the process of  2) building the Third Temple.

  

 

 

IN REVIEW

WE ARE FORWARNED
WE ARE FOREWARNED

Elohim through the prophetic scriptures has forewarned us of an Apocalyptic period called the Great Tribulation and that Elohim has provided a divine Place-of-Refuge, where “the Remnant” can physically escape the predicted apocalypse.

So, when you see a confirmation of a covenant involving Israel…

…at a time when Israel has built or begins to build the third temple…

…know and understand that the Final Seven Year Count Down will have begun.  And when it does start, 3 ½ years will remain for you to get to Elohim’s divine Place of Refuge in order to physically escape the predicted apocalypse and to greet the Son of Man at His return.

DETERMINING THE NUMBER OF DAYS
COUNTDOWN TO THE GREAT TRIBULATION

 

 

Determining the exact number of days between the start of the Final Seven Years and the beginning of the Great Tribulation will be the focus of the next article.
