Reformers William Tyndale, John Calvin, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, Philip Melanchthon, among others taught that the 70th Week of Daniel is fulfilled by the sacrifice of the Blood of Jesus Christ. It has nothing to do with the time to come. However, after the Protestant Reformation, the Jesuits came with a counter-reformation and introducing the deceptive Pre-trib Rapture and the myth of the 70th Week in Daniel.
Are we like Eve claiming in Genesis 3:3 But the fruit of the tree which is in the midst garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it” But God never did say “neither shall you touch it“ Genesis 2:16,17 And the LORD commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat, But of the tree of the knowledge good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
GOD’s PROOF the Seventieth Week in Daniel 9:27 already is fulfilled to perfection. The word antichrist is mentioned four times in the Bible.
- 1John 2:18
- 1John 2:22
- 1John 4:3
- 2John 1:7
Four times, the four Gospels. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
The word antichrist is not mentioned one time in the Book of Daniel. Thus the context of Daniel 9:27 does not relate to the antichrist, let alone that the antichrist will break the covenant with the present state of Israel.
Daniel 9:27 And He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week; and in the midst of the week He (=Jesus Christ) shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations He (=Jesus Christ) shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
The phrase “confirm the covenant” in Daniel 9:27 relates to the already existing Covenant God made with Abraham and with many. This Covenant is ratified by Lord Jesus when His Blood was flowing for us sinners on Golgotha.
- He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare His generation? for He was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was He stricken.
supports Daniel 9:26
- And after threescore and two (=62) weeks shall Messiah be cut off but not for Himself: and the people of the prince that 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.
Mark 13:14, also Matthew 24:15 and Luke 21:20 are supported by Daniel 9:26
- But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
The Seventieth Week is fulfilled to perfection the moment Jesus Christ called out “It is finished”, that triumphant Night.
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.
Do we believe God and His grace, Who gave us His Only Begotten Son? God Who is warning us that the Rapture will take place after tribulation? And that (great) tribulation is not wrath?
1Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.
Or do we believe the devil infested Jesuits and the catholic church with blood on their hands?
Proverbs 6:17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
They are falsely claiming that the Rapture will take place before “the great tribulation” that Pre-trib believers claim and God never did say!
John 16:30 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
