20 Reasons Why The 70th Week Of Daniel Has Not Been Fulfilled/Revelation Study Week 11

Our Revelation study ended up as a review and closer examination of last weeks look at the 70 Weeks of Daniel.  It was a great discussion and one that was needed I think.  I know one of the questions that is common in this study is “have these things already happened?”  The answer for me is a resounding no!  I came up with 20 reasons why the 70th Week of Daniel has not been fulfilled.  This is by no means an exhaustive list, but hopefully it will help.  Next week we will delve into the seven seals of Revelation 6.  It should be fun.

 

1.     National Israel has not accepted Jesus as their Messiah…thus finishing transgression, receiving atonement and bringing in everlasting righteousness for the Jewish people.  (Daniel 9:24)

2.     Vision and Prophecy have not been sealed up.  (Daniel 9:24, Acts 2:17)

3.     The Most Holy Place has not been anointed.  (Daniel 9:24)

4.     The firm covenant comes AFTER the destruction of Jerusalem which was in A.D. 70.  (Daniel 9:27)

5.     Jesus did not confirm a seven year covenant that ended sacrifices and grain offerings three and a half years into it.  (Daniel 9:27)

6.     There was no seven year covenant that ended sacrifices and grain offerings in the middle of it in A.D. 70.  (Daniel 9:27)

7.     Jesus spoke of the Abomination of Desolation as a yet future event.  (Daniel 9:27, Daniel 11:31, Matthew 24:15)

8.     Daniel 11:31 makes it very clear that Jesus is not the one who stops the sacrifices or sets up the abomination of Desolation.

9.     There was no one in A.D. 70 who came in accordance with Satan with all power and signs and false wonders.  (2 Thessalonians 2:9, Revelation 13)

10.   The Prince who is to come was not destroyed by the second coming of Christ in A.D. 70.  (Daniel 9:27, 2 Thessalonians 2:8)

11.     There was no false prophet who set up an image of the Beast/Antichrist/Prince who is to come, demanding people to worship him.  (Daniel 9:27, Revelation 13:14-15)

12.    There was no mark given people in A.D. 70 that kept Christians from buying or selling unless they worshipped the Beast.  (Revelation 13:16-17)

13.     Revelation was not written until A.D. 96…more than twenty years after the events of A.D. 70.  (quote from Irenaeus puts Revelation during the time of Domitian.)

14.     There was no resurrection or rapture in A.D. 70 which precede Christ’s coming to the earth and the Day of the Lord.  (Daniel 12:1-3, 1 Thessalonians 4:15-16, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3)

15.      The sun was not darkened and the moon was not turned to blood in A.D. 70.  (Joel 2:31, Matthew 24:29, Acts 2:20, Revelation 6:12-17)

16.      There was no world-wide tribulation unequaled by any other time in A.D. 70.  (Daniel 12:1, Matthew 24:21-22)

17.      The kings of the earth and great men and slaves did  not hide from the wrath of God in A.D. 70.  (Revelation 6:15)

18.      All ungodly people did not worship the beast in A.D. 70.  (Revelation 13:8)

19.      There was no earthquake stronger than any other in A.D. 70.  (Revelation 16:18)

20.     The kings of the earth did not gather their armies to battle Christ and His army in A.D. 70.  (Revelation 19:19)

  1. I’m sorry I missed. I hope it was recorded.

    • No worries on missing yesterday. Unfortunately I did not record yesterday’s study, but I will be glad to discuss it with you and try to answer any questions you might have. I am definitely recording next week’s study of the 7 seals. I would like everyone in our study to hear that one if they so desire.

  2. Brilliant. I am studying the book of Daniel right now and i have found your web page to be informative and logical. More please. Thanks. I will be reading more of your insights.

    • Mark, Thanks for stopping by and for the nice words. I do plan to get back to blogging our study, but have been very pressed for time lately. I am hoping to continue soon as I think there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks again!

  3. I’m sorry but I didn’t get it. Reason 9-20, those things are not mentioned in Danial so how are they relevant? Also Daniel 11:31 does not mention the word “sacrifice” or “daily” it’s wrongly translated. Look up the original Hebrew
