The Seventy Weeks of Daniel II

The objective of this study is to examine the seventy prophetic weeks given to Daniel which foretells of the events leading up to the establishment of a theocratic kingdom. Many theologians use the seventy weeks of Daniel to give a timeline to the antichrist and the rapture. We will examine what the apostles and the prophets had to say regarding these seventy weeks, and what they actually address. We will be answering the following questions.

  • What does the seventy weeks represent?
  • What events started the fulfillment of the seventy weeks?
  • What events must be fulfilled during the seventy weeks?
  • What did the temple veil being pulled apart represent?
  • What laws did the anointed fulfill?
  • What’s ushered in after the seventy weeks?
  • What is the abomination of desolation?

In the first part of this study, we left off with the book of Revelation and there were things important to understand, specifically the three and a half years, the 1260 days which is also three and a half years, and the two witnesses in Yerushalayim prophesying during this time. There is a reason for this which we will elaborate on further in this study. We also covered the timelines given in prophecy concerning when the Anointed one would come, in the seventy prophetic weeks one of the things that would take place is the most holy would be anointed, the reason this is critical for us in validating time lines is because we have 62 weeks, 434 years, the temple of the city was rebuilt in 408 BC, and if we subtract this from 434 years we come up with the date 26 CE. The death of Herod occurred in 4 BC, the messenger Gavriel sent Joseph back to Yerushalayim because those who sought the life of Yahshua were dead. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume after calculating the surrounding events that Yahshua was born around 3 BC, and we know Luke said he was about 30 years old at his purification, which means he was anointed in 29 CE. This coincides with the calculations we have according to the seventy weeks of Daniel.

We will continue in the book of Revelation because there is a missing three and a half years. We can account for 69 of the 70 weeks, then we identified 1 week, in Daniel 9:27, half of that week was directly associated to the Anointed in 29 CE. Now we are looking for the other half of that week.

It also appears from Yahshua’s account in Matthew, we are looking at two tribulations that occur after the first three and a half year period.

    After this, I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, so that no wind would blow on the earth, or on the sea, or on any tree. I saw another angel ascend from the sunrise, having the seal of the living Elohim. He cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was given to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Don’t harm the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, until we have sealed the bondservants of our Elohim on their foreheads!” I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred forty-four thousand, sealed out of every tribe of the children of Yisra’el: of the tribe of Judah were sealed twelve thousand, of the tribe of Re’uven twelve thousand, of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand, of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand, of the tribe of Naftali twelve thousand, of the tribe of Menasheh twelve thousand, of the tribe of Simon twelve thousand, of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand, of the tribe of Yissakhar twelve thousand, of the tribe of Zevulun twelve thousand, of the tribe of Yosef twelve thousand, of the tribe of Binyamin were sealed twelve thousand. (Revelation 7:1-8 RNEB)

The one hundred forty-four thousand are the elect that will be sealed from the day of wrath that will take place on the earth.

    After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no man could number, out of every nation and of all tribes, peoples, and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands. (Revelation 7:9 RNEB)

This throne is not in heaven, it’s on earth. YAH’s mercy seat symbolizes his throne, which will be in the city of Yerushalayim.

    They cried with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation be to our Elohim, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” All the angels were standing around the throne, the elders, and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before his throne, and worshiped Elohim, saying, “Amein! Blessing, glory, wisdom, thanksgiving, honor, power, and might, be to our Elohim forever and ever! Amein.” One of the elders answered, saying to me, “These who are arrayed in white robes, who are they, and from where did they come?” I told him, “My master, you know.” He said to me, “THESE ARE THOSE WHO CAME OUT OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION. THEY WASHED THEIR ROBES, AND MADE THEM WHITE IN THE LAMB’S BLOOD. [They were purified] (Revelation 7:10-14 RNEB)

Could this be the tribulation spoken of by Yahshua in the book of Matthew?

    Therefore they are before the throne of Elohim, they serve him day and night in his temple. He who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. They will never be hungry, neither thirsty any more; neither will the sun beat on them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shepherds them, and leads them to springs of waters of life. And Elohim will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Revelation 7:15-17 RNEB)

All these people were purified in the name of Yahshua the Anointed after the tribulation period that Yahshua said would take place with the children of Yisrael in Yerushalayim. We will further confirm this in the books of the prophets.

This is another period and tribulation that will take place.

    “At that time shall Mikha’el stand up, the great prince who stands for the children of your 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 your people shall be delivered, everyone who shall be found written in the book. Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise shall shine as the brightness of the expanse; and those who turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever. BUT YOU, DANIYEL, SHUT UP THE WORDS, AND SEAL THE BOOK, EVEN TO THE TIME OF THE END: many shall run back and forth, and knowledge shall be increased.” (Daniel 12:1-4 RNEB)

In the Book of Revelation Yochanan was told not to seal up the book. Keep in mind this a time of great trouble.

    Then I, Daniyel, looked, and behold, there stood two others, the one on the brink of the river on this side, and the other on the brink of the river on that side. One said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by him who lives forever that it shall be for a time, times, and a half; and when they have made an end of breaking in pieces the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. I heard, but I didn’t understand: then said I, my master, what shall be the issue of these things? He said, Go your way, Daniyel; for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end. Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; BUT THE WICKED SHALL DO WICKEDLY; AND NONE OF THE WICKED SHALL UNDERSTAND; BUT THOSE WHO ARE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND. (Daniel 12:5-10 RNEB)

Remember the three questions asked of Yahshua by the disciples.

  1. When will these things be?
  2. What will be the sign of your coming?
  3. What will be the sign of the end?

These will be relevant as we continue.

    There will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars; and on the earth anxiety of nations, in perplexity for the roaring of the sea and the waves; men fainting for fear, and for expectation of the things which are coming on the world: for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. (Luke 21:25-27 RNEB)

This did not take place in 70 CE at the fall of the temple and slaughter of over 1 million Hebrews. Therefore, were still looking for this to take place.

    But when these things begin to happen, look up, and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near.” (Luke 21:28 RNEB)
    As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? What is the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?” (Matthew 24:3 RNEB)

The first question the disciples are asking deals with the fall of Yerushalayim, which we covered, then they ask what will be the sign of your coming, to date this has not yet occurred, and he’s now getting ready to answer this question, and the final question asked is what will be the signs of the end of the age? When Yahshua returns, he will usher in a new age, an age of righteousness, ruled under a theocracy, where he will reign as king. So, when will this take place?

    But immediately after the oppression of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken; (Matthew 24:29 RNEB)

He said in Mathew 24:21, “For then there will be great oppression, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever will be”. Over one million Hebrews lost their lives, over 100,000 were sold into slavery, then it says after this, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days,” so for the popular teachings to be true, we need to redefine “immediately” to mean 1900 plus years, which makes no sense, so there must be a second tribulation.

    and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky. Then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. He will send out his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together his chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other. (Matthew 24:30-31 RNEB)

When Yahshua returns, Shaul told us he will descend from heaven with a shout, with a voice of an Archangel, with a trumpet of Elohim the dead in the Anointed will rise first, then the elect will be caught up to meet him in the air. The scriptures continue to say Yahshua will come with a mighty army and go to Yerushalayim.

The tribulation we’re talking about will be brought about by the political and ecclesiastical beast, this is a spiritual tribulation that will be driven by a religious system to encourage compliance.

    I saw, and the same horn made war with the holy ones, and prevailed against them; until the ancient of days came, AND JUDGMENT WAS GIVEN TO THE HOLY ONES OF THE MOST HIGH, AND THE TIME CAME THAT THE HOLY ONES POSSESSED THE KINGDOM. (Daniel 7:21-22 RNEB)

It says Holy ones, so we know it’s referring to Yisrael, Holy ones is the key word in this verse.

    Thus he said, The fourth animal shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be diverse from all the kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom shall ten kings arise: and another shall arise after them; and he shall be diverse from the former, and he shall put down three kings. He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the holy ones of the Most High; and he shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and half a time. But the judgment shall be set, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it to the end. The kingdom and the dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole sky, SHALL BE GIVEN TO THE PEOPLE OF THE HOLY ONES OF THE MOST HIGH: his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. Here is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniyel, my thoughts much troubled me, and my face was changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart. (Daniel 7:23-28 RNEB)
    After this I saw in the night visions, and, behold, a fourth animal, awesome and powerful, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with its feet: and it was diverse from all the animals that were before it; and it had ten horns. (Daniel 7:7 RNEB)

Lets quickly review, the 1st beast in verse four is Babylon, the second beast in verse five is Medo-persia, the third beast in verse six is Greece and the fourth beast is Rome. The last beast was different from all the beasts before it because it had 10 horns. In Daniel 7:21-26 we read about the ten horns, and out of this kingdom, ten kings will arise speaking words against YAH, and will wear out the Holy ones of YAH, speaking perversities and blasphemes.

The prelude to the next verse is the King had a dream and Daniel has been called to interpret it.

    As for this image, its head was of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of brass, its legs of iron, its feet part of iron, and part of clay. You saw until a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet that were of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken in pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, so that no place was found for them: and THE STONE THAT STRUCK THE IMAGE BECAME A GREAT MOUNTAIN, AND FILLED THE WHOLE EARTH. (Daniel 2:32-35 RNEB)

The stone is Yahshua.

    This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation of it before the king. You, O king, are king of kings, to whom the Elohim of heaven has given the kingdom, the power, and the strength, and the glory; and wherever the children of men dwell, the animals of the field and the birds of the sky has he given into your hand, and has made you to rule over them all: you are the head of gold. (Daniel 2:36-38 RNEB)

Babylon under king Nevukhadnetzar was known as a city of gold.

    After you shall arise another kingdom inferior to you; and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. The fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron, because iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things; and as iron that crushes all these, shall it break in pieces and crush. (Daniel 2:39-40 RNEB)

Rome was known for their use of iron, it was used to make weapons, and it was one of the reasons they conquered the Grecian empire.

    Whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, IT SHALL BE A DIVIDED KINGDOM; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, because you saw the iron mixed with miry clay. (Daniel 2:41 RNEB)

In light of this scripture, it’s hard to accept the idea that there will be any one kingdom that will unite the world, this speaks more to a large coalition or confederacy.

    As the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. (Daniel 2:42 RNEB)

The toes represent the 10 kings, and the iron still represents the Roman empire.

    Whereas you saw the iron mixed with miry clay, THEY SHALL MINGLE THEMSELVES WITH THE SEED OF MEN; BUT THEY SHALL NOT CLING TO ONE ANOTHER, EVEN AS IRON DOES NOT MINGLE WITH CLAY. IN THE DAYS OF THOSE KINGS shall the Elohim of heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed, nor shall the sovereignty of it be left to another people; but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. (Daniel 2:43-44 RNEB)
    Because you saw that a stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great Elohim has made known to the king what shall happen hereafter: and THE DREAM IS CERTAIN, AND THE INTERPRETATION OF IT SURE. (Daniel 2:45 RNEB)

As we read next verse keep in mind the ten toes represents ten diverse kings.

    A great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was with child. She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth. Another sign was seen in heaven. Behold, a great red dragon, HAVING SEVEN HEADS AND TEN HORNS, and on his heads seven crowns. (Revelation 12:1-3 RNEB)

This scripture and Daniel 7:21-28, Daniel 7:7, Daniel 2:1-45, all have the common denominator of speaking of ten. In Daniel 7:21-28 we see a king rise up who is dealing with ten kings. The ten kings in all these verses are not from the times they were written in because these very same kings, which are being signified by toes as opposed to horns, are going to appear before the Anointed’s return to establish a theocracy on the earth. Therefore, all these prophecies are talking about this age, the time period were in right now.

    Then I stood on the sand of the sea. I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, HAVING TEN HORNS AND SEVEN HEADS. On his horns were ten crowns, AND ON HIS HEADS, BLASPHEMOUS NAMES. (Revelation 13:1 RNEB)

On their crowns are written blasphemes.

    The beast which I saw was like a leopard [Grecian empire], and his feet were like those of a bear [Medo-persia empire], and his mouth like the mouth of a lion [Babylonian empire]. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. One of his heads looked like it had been wounded fatally. His fatal wound was healed, and the whole earth marveled at the beast. They worshiped the dragon, because he gave his authority to the beast, AND THEY WORSHIPED THE BEAST, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” A mouth speaking great things and blasphemy was given to him. Authority to make war for forty-two months was given to him. (Revelation 13:2-5 RNEB)

We have a beast arising, and he will be doing something for a three and a half year period. By worshipping the beast they showed him reverence, respect, and great honor. As a result, people are bowing down to this system, respecting, honoring, fighting, and promoting it.

    He opened his mouth for blasphemy against Elohim, to blaspheme his name, and his dwelling, those who dwell in heaven. It was given to him to make war with the holy ones, and to overcome them. Authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation was given to him. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been killed. (Revelation 13:6-8 RNEB)

Remember the holy ones represent Yisrael, and Yisrael is composed of all those who follow the laws and precepts of YAH and have the testimony of Yahshua the Anointed.

    Here is the patience of the holy ones, THOSE WHO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF ELOHIM, AND THE FAITH OF YAHSHUA.” (Revelation 14:12 RNEB)
    I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke like a dragon. He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. He makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. He performs great signs, even making fire come down out of the sky to the earth in the sight of people. (Revelation 13:11-13 RNEB)

We already read about the first beast, which is the political power, and now were seeing the second beast which represents an ecclesiastical system.

    He deceives my own people who dwell on the earth because of the signs he was granted to do in front of the beast; saying to those who dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who had the sword wound and lived. It was given to him to give breath to it, to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause as many as wouldn’t worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, to be given marks on their right hands, or on their foreheads; (Revelation 13:14-16 RNEB)

This beast causes all small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. Most of the people in the world are right handed and this represents the works of the hand, the things we do. The forehead represent our minds, the thoughts we entertain that induce an emotion, and end up resulting in some type of an action or response.

    and that no one would be able to buy or to sell, unless he has that mark, the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is six hundred sixty-six. (Revelation 13:17-18 RNEB)

The man represents the ecclesiastical beast that introduces a religious system which is represented in all nations of the world. It’s considered and abomination because it does not hold anything sacred. This religious system is responsible for abolishing the laws set forth in the first five books of the bible and has brazenly set forth its own way of righteousness which is not endorsed by YAH.

Christian Confessions

There was and is a commandment to keep holy the Sabbath day, but that Sabbath day was not Sunday. It will be said, however, and with some show of triumph, that the Sabbath was transferred from the seventh to the first day of the week, with all its duties, privileges and sanctions. Earnestly desiring information on this subject, which I have studied for many years, I ask, where can the record of such a transaction be found? Not in the New Testament absolutely not.

To me it seems unaccountable that Jesus, during three years’ intercourse with His disciples, often conversing with them upon the Sabbath question…never alluded to any transference of the day; also, that during forty days of His resurrection life, no such thing was intimated.

Of course, I quite well know that Sunday did come into use in early Christian history….But what a pity it comes branded with the mark of paganism, and christened with the name of the sun god, adopted and sanctioned by the papal apostasy, and bequeathed as a sacred legacy to Protestantism!” Dr. Edward T. Hiscox, author of the “Baptist Manual”, in a paper read before a (New York ministers’ conference, November 13, 1893, and reported in New York Examiner, November 16, 1893.)

“The pope has power to change times, to abrogate laws, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ.” (Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop)

Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change was her act. And the act is a mark of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters. (C. F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons, in answer to a letter regarding the change of the Sabbath, November 11, 1895.)

God himself is obliged to abide by the judgment of his priests, and either not to pardon or to pardon, according as they refuse or give absolution, provided the penitent is capable of it. The sentence of the priest precedes, and God subscribes to it. (Dignity and Duties of the Priest, Saint Alphonsus De Liguori)

    Now this is the commandment, the statutes, and the ordinances, which YAH your Elohim commanded to teach you, that you might do them in the land where you go over to possess it; that you might fear YAH your Elohim, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command you, you, and your son, and your son’s son, all the days of your life; and that your days may be prolonged. (Deuteronomy 6:1-2 RNEB)
    and you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. YOU SHALL BIND THEM FOR A SIGN ON YOUR HAND, AND THEY SHALL BE FOR SYMBOLS BETWEEN YOUR EYES. (Deuteronomy 6:7-8 RNEB)

The word “sign” according to Strongs #225 is a primitive root of #226; ooth the Hebraic term as distinquishing mark.

When YAH says you shall bind, bind is referring to the laws and commandments as we seen from the prior verse. Then it says a sign or mark on your hand, which represents our works, and between our eyes, refers to the forehead which represents the mind. Consequently, this can be written as bind the law to your mind and let it be seen in the works of your hands. The Hebrew word ooth also means to consent, or agree, a banner, a signal.

    YAH spoke to Moshe, saying, “Speak also to the children of Yisra’el, saying, ‘Most certainly you shall keep my Sabbaths: FOR IT IS A SIGN BETWEEN ME AND YOU THROUGHOUT YOUR GENERATIONS; that you may know that I am YAH who sanctifies you. (Exodus 31:12-13 RNEB)

YAH is identifying his people with this sign, and it was to be for all generations.

    I gave them my statutes, and shown them my ordinances, which if a man do, he shall live in them. MOREOVER ALSO I GAVE THEM MY SABBATHS, TO BE A SIGN BETWEEN ME AND THEM, THAT THEY MIGHT KNOW THAT I AM YAH WHO SANCTIFIES THEM. (Ezekiel 20:11-12 RNEB)

The Sabbaths, which is referring to the seventh day rest and the additional seven feast days, are a mark. They mark us and distinguish us from the rest of the world.

    I am YAH your Elohim: walk in my statutes, and keep my ordinances, and do them; and make my Sabbaths holy; and THEY SHALL BE A SIGN BETWEEN ME AND YOU, THAT YOU MAY KNOW THAT I AM YAH YOUR ELOHIM. (Ezekiel 20:19-20 RNEB)

Satan is the one bringing the mark, name, and image on the scene during the tribulation period because he said he shall be like El Elyon, whatever YAH has I will have. YAH identifies his people with a mark, Satan also identify his people with a mark, and has always very subtly done the opposite of what YAH mandates.

    After this, I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, so that no wind would blow on the earth, or on the sea, or on any tree. I saw another angel ascend from the sunrise, HAVING THE SEAL OF THE LIVING ELOHIM. He cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was given to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Don’t harm the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, UNTIL WE HAVE SEALED THE BONDSERVANTS OF OUR ELOHIM ON THEIR FOREHEADS!” (Revelation 7:1-3 RNEB)

This is not a physical sign or seal, as if someone wrote on our forehead with a pen. These marks are spiritual, and are only distinguishable by the work of our hand.

    The fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from the sky which had fallen to the earth. The key to the pit of the abyss was given to him. He opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke from a burning furnace. The sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke from the pit. Then out of the smoke came forth locusts on the earth, and power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were told that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, BUT ONLY THOSE PEOPLE WHO DON’T HAVE ELOHIM’S SEAL ON THEIR FOREHEADS. (Revelation 9:1-4 RNEB)

If we don’t have YAH’s seal, we have the mark of the beast. If we don’t bare YAH’s mark it’s because we have defaulted to another ecclesiastical system.

    Then he cried in my ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause you them that have charge over the city to draw near, every man with his destroying weapon in his hand. Behold, six men came from the way of the upper gate, which lies toward the north, every man with his slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man in the midst of them clothed in linen, with a writer’s inkhorn by his side. They went in, and stood beside the bronze altar. The glory of the Elohim of Yisra’el was gone up from the Keruv, whereupon it was, to the threshold of the house: and he called to the man clothed in linen, who had the writer’s inkhorn by his side. YAH said to him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Yerushalayim, and set A MARK ON THE FOREHEADS OF THE MEN THAT SIGH AND THAT CRY OVER ALL THE ABOMINATIONS THAT ARE DONE IN THE MIDST OF IT. To the others he said in my hearing, Go you through the city after him, and strike: don’t let your eye spare, neither have you pity; (Ezekiel 9:1-5 RNEB)

YAH gave directions to mark, seal, and preserve the righteous, the ones that hated the abominations occurring around them. This is the same thing that occurred in the book of Revelation, the angel sealed YAH’s people in the forehead and the rest were destroyed.

    kill utterly the old man, the young man and the virgin, and little children and women; BUT DON’T COME NEAR ANY MAN ON WHOM IS THE MARK: AND BEGIN AT MY SANCTUARY. Then they began at the old men that were before the house. He said to them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go you forth. They went forth, and struck in the city. (Ezekiel 9:6-7 RNEB)

Were looking for someone or some system to try to mark us as part of the beast system. How many will know how to avoid this mark and be sealed by YAH as the righteous? This will take many by surprise on account of the preconceived ideas being placed in the mind of the multitudes by false prophets. We need to watch and be ready. We can only prepare by learning, understanding, and applying the laws and precepts of Elohim.

    He will be a sanctuary, but for both houses of Yisra’el, he will be a trap and a snare for the inhabitants of Yerushalayim. Many will stumble over it, fall, be broken, be snared, and be captured.” WRAP UP THE TESTIMONY. SEAL THE LAW AMONG MY DISCIPLES. (Isaiah 8:14-16 RNEB)

All of us were created to be students of Elohim, and be called sons. Every follower carries a sign, and if we don’t have the sign of Elohim, that in itself is a sign.

    He causes all, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, to be given marks on their right hands, or on their foreheads; (Revelation 13:16 RNEB)

The right hand is generally what we spend our day using to earn a living or accomplish things, it symbolically represents our works. The forehead represents our meditation, the things we think about.

    I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on Mount Tziyon, and with him a number, one hundred forty-four thousand, having his name, and THE NAME OF HIS FATHER, WRITTEN ON THEIR FOREHEADS. (Revelation 14:1 RNEB)
    I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Yahshua, and for the word of Elohim, and such as didn’t worship the beast nor his image, AND DIDN’T RECEIVE THE MARK ON THEIR FOREHEAD AND ON THEIR HAND. They lived, and reigned with the Anointed for the thousand years. (Revelation 20:4 RNEB)

In this verse we see the wording of the mark on the hand and forehead said very similarly to the prophets in the old testament, except they were speaking about the mark, sign, and seal of YAH. We also know these things are spiritual, not physical marks or seals. Consequently, why is it so many believe the mark of the beast is something physical, when every one agrees the mark when it’s used regarding YAH is spiritual? The way the scriptures are being interpreted in the Church makes no sense, are erroneous, and causes confusion. We are sealed by the law of Elohim when we our obedient to the law, and YAH executes judgment on the lawless, the ones who practice an adversarial theology. The second beast that rises up is pushing an adversarial ecclesiastic theology throughout the earth, which also marks it’s followers the same way YAH marks his. Everyone is marked by what they are obedient to in their heart and mind, and it’s made known by the works of their hand. The law has always been the same in the new and old testament, if were not following the law as it’s laid down in the first five books we are lawless! The idea we can be saved by accepting something into our heart strictly by faith is based in Zoroastrianism and Persian theology and was adopted by the Gnostics.

    They will see his face, and HIS NAME WILL BE ON THEIR FOREHEADS. (Revelation 22:4 RNEB)
    For we know that THE LAW IS SPIRITUAL, but I am fleshly, sold under sin. (Romans 7:14 RNEB)
    What a wretched man I am! Who will deliver me out of the body of this death? I thank Elohim through Yahshua the Anointed, our Master! SO THEN WITH THE MIND, I MYSELF SERVE ELOHIM’S LAW, but with the flesh, I am a slave of sin’s law. (Romans 7:24-25 RNEB)

We serve the law with our mind by focusing on the all the laws and precepts of YAH first and meditating on them day and night. The scriptures said that Yahshua will return and execute judgment on those who do not know YAH, and obey the gospel of Yahshua.

    Don’t grieve the Holy Spirit of Elohim, in whom you were SEALED FOR THE DAY OF REDEMPTION. (Ephesians 4:30 RNEB)
    I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits, something like frogs; (Revelation 16:13 RNEB)

It says in Revelations chapter thirteen the beast speaks great words of blaspheme, this is not the man vessel speaking it is a spirit of the adversary speaking through him.

    for they are spirits of demons, performing signs; which go forth to the kings of the whole inhabited earth, to gather them together for the war of that great day of Elohim, the Almighty. (Revelation 16:14 RNEB)

The seventy weeks will end with the ushering in of the theocratic age which comes after the three and a half year tribulation period. Yahshua returns immediately after the tribulation and exercises judgment through war on the wicked.

    “Behold, I come like a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his clothes, so that he doesn’t walk naked, and they see his shame.” He gathered them together into the place which is called in Hebrew, Megiddo. (Revelation 16:15-16 RNEB)

Were still dealing with the beast mentioned in Revelation chapter thirteen.

    One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here. I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality, and those who dwell in the earth were made drunken with the wine of her sexual immorality.” (Revelation 17:1-2 RNEB)

Wine is symbolic of religious doctrine.

    He carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet-colored animal, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns. (Revelation 17:3 RNEB)

This is the political beast we read about in Revelation chapter thirteen, Daniel 2:1-45, Daniel 7:7, Daniel 7:21-28, and Revelation 12:1-3. One of our emphases was on the ten toes which are being described here as ten horns. The prophecy stated that in the time of the ten toes Yahshua would return and make war against the ten toes, referring to ten nations. The woman riding on the beast represents the ecclesiastical system.

The ecclesiastical power is riding the governmental structure. It’s interesting that during the major elections over the last several years the religious leaders in the United States were campaigning for political candidates that they felt held their agenda. Much could be said about this, however we just need to recognize that an ecclesiastical power has already started riding [directing] the governmental structure. This has been occurring in one form or another in various nations for hundreds of years.

    The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup FULL OF ABOMINATIONS AND THE IMPURITIES OF THE SEXUAL IMMORALITY OF THE EARTH. And on her forehead a name was written, “MYSTERY, BAVEL THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” (Revelation 17:5 RNEB)

As a mother she has children, and they are spreading their abominations all over the earth by teaching against laws of Elohim, literally promoting lawlessness.

    I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the holy ones, and with the blood of the martyrs of Yahshua. When I saw her, I wondered with great amazement. The angel said to me, “Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. The beast that you saw was, and is not; and is about to come up out of the abyss and to go into destruction. Those who dwell on the earth and whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel when they see that the beast was, and is not, and shall be present. Here is the mind that has wisdom. THE SEVEN HEADS ARE SEVEN MOUNTAINS, ON WHICH THE WOMAN SITS. (Revelation 17:6-9 RNEB)

Rome sits on seven hills and is called the seat of the Roman Catholic church. In the Hebrew language, the word for mountains and hills is synonymous.

    They are seven kings. Five have fallen, the one is, the other has not yet come. When he comes, he must continue a little while. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is of the seven; and he goes to destruction. The ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority as kings, with the beast, for one hour. These have one mind, and they give their power and authority to the beast. These will war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for he is Master of masters, and King of kings. They also will overcome who are with him, called and chosen and faithful.” He said to me, “THE WATERS WHICH YOU SAW, WHERE THE PROSTITUTE SITS, ARE PEOPLES, MULTITUDES, NATIONS, AND LANGUAGES. (Revelation 17:10-15 RNEB)

Catholic means universal and she sits in every nation and among all people.

    I saw the heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it is called Faithful and True. In righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has names written and a name written which no one knows but he himself. He is clothed in a garment sprinkled with blood. His name is called “The Word of Elohim.” The armies which are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in white, pure, fine linen. Out of his mouth proceeds a sharp, double-edged sword, that with it he should strike the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. He treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Elohim, the Almighty. He has on his garment and on his thigh a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND MASTER OF MASTERS.” I saw an angel standing in the sun. He cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the sky, “Come! Be gathered together to the great supper of Elohim, that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, and small and great.” I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him who sat on the horse, and against his army. The beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who worked the signs in his sight, with which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur. The rest were killed with the sword of him who sat on the horse, the sword which came forth out of his mouth. All the birds were filled with their flesh. (Revelation 19:19-21 RNEB)

The false prophet is essentially the second beast of Revelation chapter thirteen, and when dealing with prophets were always dealing with ecclesiastical matters.

Summing Up

We have now completed the final part of the study on the Seventy Weeks of Daniel. What we should have established is that during this period:

  1. Yahshua was anointed, which was the prophetic event at his purification.
  2. An end was put to animal sacrifices spiritually, this was symbolized by the veil being torn.
  3. Transgression was completed, which was the destruction of the temple, which physically stopped all sacrifices.
  4. The Anointed made an end of sins, which was done through his death, the process of purification in his name, and the making of reconciliation for iniquity.
  5. Bringing in everlasting righteousness, which occurs after the second arrival, Yahshua brings judgment on the wicked through war, and then we enter the theocratic age of righteousness.
