Pentecostal church of Espoo. ☺️🇫🇮🙏
We had a Bible studies with Arab -group. We studied about the prophecies made of messiah, when? How? Genealogy? Covenant of Abraham?
What was amazing us today, was the prophecy found in the book of Daniel.
The angel Gabriel approaches Daniel in the latter half of the ninth chapter after Daniel prays for Israel. Gabriel mentions “seventy sevens” will take place before God will put an end to sin and bring everlasting righteousness (Daniel 9:24).
Bible teachers agrees that the sevens appears to mean years in the text of Daniel. They used week-years (7) to mean 7 year periods.
Therefore, 70 X 7 = 490 years. Although Christians typically refer to the period of God bringing everlasting righteousness as 70 weeks, they really mean 70 X 7 years.
The prophecy divides up these 490 years:
49 years (7 X 7): The time it takes to rebuild Jerusalem since the time the Babylonians had destroyed it (Daniel 9:25), which occurs in the Book of Nehemiah.
434 years (62 X 7): A time designated for waiting for the Anointed One to come (Daniel 9:26). The Anointed One appears to mean Jesus, here.
prophecy given to Daniel back in the third or second early century B.C. came to fruition in 30 A.D., hundreds of years later. The mathematical possibilities of just one prophecy of this nature alone coming true would take an impossibly small probability to happen in reality. Therefore, the first 69 weeks strengthen the reason to believe in Christ’s death, resurrection, and plan of salvation for our lives. He fulfilled the impossible! 🙏☺️✝️🔥🙌
Word of God is an amazing! So precise prophecy about The date (year) of Messiah’s, Jesus’ birth! 🙌🔥✝️☺️🙏
Here is the Bible passage:
Dan 9:24 “Seventy weeks are decreed about your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin, and to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and to anoint a most holy place.
Dan 9:25 Know therefore and understand that from the going out of the word to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one, a prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built again with squares and moat, but in a troubled time.
