About the seventy weeks

Daniel 9

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: 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: 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. 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.  -kjv

Jeremiah 30

7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.  -kjv

Daniel 9:24-27 deals with the seventy week decree for the people of Israel. Each week represents seven years, so that’s a period of 490 years. According to this passage, the first sixty-nine weeks deals from the issuing of the decree, which I believe, took place from 444 B.C., during the time of Nehemiah to restore and rebuild Jerusalem. From that decree until the time of the Messiah, there will be 483 years, 69 x 7 years. Then the Messiah came, I believe that was fulfilled on palm Sunday. But there appears to be a gap and the seventieh week is till awaited and is still yet future. This seven years is the great tribulation which Jeremiah calls “Jacob’s trouble”.
