Daniels 70th Week


Daniels 70th week
Daniels 70th Week

  • Daniel 9:24. SEVENTY WEEKS (or seventy "sevens") ARE DETERMINED (or decreed) UPON THY PEOPLE AND UPON THY HOLY CITY, TO FINISH THE TRANSGRESSION, AND TO MAKE (or put) AN END OF SINS, AND TO MAKE RECONCILIATION (or atonement) FOR INIQUITY (or atone for wickedness), AND TO BRING IN EVERLASTING RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND TO SEAL UP THE VISION AND PROPHECY, AND TO ANOINT THE MOST HOLY (or most holy place).


Daniels 70th week1
Daniels 70th Week

  • SEVENTY WEEKS (or seventy "sevens") (each day for a year-ref Num 14:34).

  • Each day of the week represents one year.

  • Thus, the seventy weeks of years equal a total of 490 years (7 days x 70 weeks = 490 days). Four hundred and ninety years ARE DETERMINED (or decreed).

  • God has decided that this period of time would take place.  UPON "THY PEOPLE," (which is Israel) AND UPON "THY HOLY CITY" which is Jerusalem.


Daniels 70th week2
Daniels 70th Week

  • These verses deal primarily with Israel. 

  • (1) "TO FINISH" THE TRANSGRESSION (or to finish disobedience),
   

  • (2) AND "TO MAKE"AN END OF SINS (or put an end to sin),
   

  • (3) AND "TO MAKE" RECONCILIATION (or atonement)
    FOR INIQUITY  (or to atone for wickedness).   (Jesus reconciled us to God.  Jesus was our reconciliation for sin to God the Father through the atonement of His blood shed on the cross.)
   


Daniels 70th week3
Daniels 70th Week

  • Note the terms, "to finish, to make, to make."
   

  • The first three applied to the first coming of Jesus.

  • However, it is generally agreed, they also have a special application pertaining to Israel at the return of Jesus and during the Millennium.
   

  • In number one, Jesus pours upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, THE SPIRIT OF GRACE AND OF SUPPLICATIONS - Zech 12:10.


Daniels 70th week4
Daniels 70th Week

  • IN THAT DAY THERE SHALL BE A FOUNTAIN OPENED TO THE HOUSE OF DAVID AND TO THE INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM FOR SIN AND FOR UNCLEANNESS-Zech 13:1.
   

  • In number two, the national sins of Israel will come to an end; as it is written, I WILL FORGIVE THEIR INIQUITY, AND I WILL REMEMBER THEIR SIN NO MORE-Jere 31:34.


Daniels 70th week5
Daniels 70th Week

  • In number three, Jesus reconciled us to God through the atonement of His blood on the cross.

  • Jesus was cut off from the land of the living, but rose from the dead and now sits on the right hand of God the Father.

  • He provides salvation for Jew and Gentile alike through faith.


Daniels 70th week6
Daniels 70th Week

  • Note the last three, "to bring in, to seal up, and to anoint."

  • These cover the return of Jesus.
   

  • Jesus was cut off from the land of the living, but rose from the dead and now sits on the right hand of God the Father.


Daniels 70th week7
Daniels 70th Week

  • Note the beginning words of the next three phrases: "to bring in," "to seal up," and "to anoint." These refer to the second coming of Jesus:
   

  • (4) AND "TO BRING IN" EVERLASTING RIGHTEOUSNESS, or to bring in Jesus Christ the Messiah; to bring in everlasting righteousness regarding Israel and Jerusalem.


Daniels 70th week8
Daniels 70th Week

  • (5) AND "TO SEAL UP" THE VISION AND PROPHECY, or to complete and finish this vision and prophecy.


Daniels 70th week9
Daniels 70th Week

  • (6) AND "TO ANOINT" THE MOST HOLY (to anoint Jesus Christ)-Dan 9:24. Some maintain that this is Jesus, being anointed by God the Father.

  • Jesus will return to the earth; as it is written,, IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS… SHALL APPEAR THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN IN HEAVEN…AND THEY SHALL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY-Mt 24:29,30.


Daniels 70th week10
Daniels 70th Week

  • He shall receive the kingdom from His Father-ref Dan 7:13,14. Jesus will reign as the King of kings and the Lord of lords.                                
   

  • Others hold that "to anoint the most holy" is referring to the millennial temple being anointed, as the term "most holy" is often used in conjunction with the temple.
   

  • These six reasons sum up the purpose of the 490 years being determined upon Israel and upon Jerusalem.


Daniels 70th week11
Daniels 70th Week

  • DAN 9:25. KNOW THEREFORE AND UNDERSTAND, THAT FROM THE GOING FORTH OF THE COMMAND-MENT (or issuing of the decree) TO RESTORE AND TO BUILD JERUSALEM UNTO THE MESSIAH THE PRINCE (or the Anointed One, the ruler, comes-NIV) SHALL BE SEVEN WEEKS (or seven ‘sevens’), AND THREESCORE AND TWO WEEKS (or sixty-two ‘sevens’): THE STREET SHALL BE BUILT AGAIN, AND THE WALL, EVEN IN TROUBLOUS TIMES (or in times of trouble).


Daniels 70th week12
Daniels 70th Week

  •  Next, an explanation of the times and major events that would take place.
    KNOW THEREFORE AND UNDERSTAND.

  • This is a command—"know and understand"
    THAT FROM THE GOING FORTH OF THE COMMANDMENT  (or the issuing of the decree-NIV, or command; the next part tells us which decree or commandment), TO RESTORE AND TO BUILD JERUSALEM- Neh chapter 2:1-8.


Daniels 70th week13
Daniels 70th Week

  • Daniel is told that a decree to restore and to build Jerusalem—which had been broken down by Nebuchadnezzar and his army—was going to come forth.

  • There is some debate over which decree it was and its exact date.

  • The decree, generally accepted, is that of Artaxerxes, issued approximately 445 B.C. Jerusalem was to be restored.


Daniels 70th week14
Daniels 70th Week

  • UNTO THE MESSIAH THE PRINCE or until the Anointed One, or the ruler, comes-NIV, which is Jesus SHALL BE SEVEN WEEKS or seven ‘sevens’ which is 49 years, AND THREESCORE AND TWO WEEKS or sixty-two ‘sevens’ (or 62 x 7 years which is 434 years:


  • THE STREET SHALL BE BUILT AGAIN, (which is in Jerusalem) AND THE WALL which is of Jerusalem shall also be built again-ref Neh 2:17,18; 6:15-19


Daniels 70th week15
Daniels 70th Week

  • EVEN IN TROUBLOUS TIMES (or in times of trouble)-Dan 9:25.

  • This gives a total of 483 years, leaving one week (or one period of 7 years) left.

  • Jerusalem was to be rebuilt; however, it would not be easy.

  • There would be times of trouble during this rebuilding.


Daniels 70th week16
Daniels 70th Week

  • The seventy weeks are divided into three parts.
   

  • (1) Seven weeks or 49 years. This may have covered the rebuilding in troublous times. All are fulfilled.
   

  • (2) Sixty-two weeks or 434 years. This covered from the end of the 49 years to, perhaps, the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem before His crucifixion. All are fulfilled.
   

  • (3) One week or 7 years remain. This is the Tribulation, which is still to come as of the writing of this book.


Daniels 70th week17
Daniels 70th Week

  • Thus, 49 years + 434 years gives us a total of 483 years. This leaves one week or one period of 7 years to fulfill the total of 490 years.
   

  • The 483 years fulfilled the rebuilding of Jerusalem, just as Daniel had seen, as well as the coming of the Messiah, Jesus. 

  • At exactly what point in time the 483 years were completed is uncertain.

  • Allowing for errors in the calendar, the transition from B.C. to A.D., and other items, many believe it was when Jesus entered Jerusalem in triumph four days prior to being crucified.


Daniels 70th week18
Daniels 70th Week

  • 9:26. AND AFTER THREESCORE AND TWO WEEKS (or sixty-two ‘sevens’) SHALL MESSIAH (or the Anointed One will) BE CUT OFF, BUT NOT FOR HIMSELF (or will have nothing): AND THE PEOPLE OF THE PRINCE (or ruler) THAT SHALL COME SHALL DESTROY THE CITY AND THE SANCTUARY; AND THE END THEREOF SHALL BE WITH (or will come like) A FLOOD, AND UNTO THE END OF THE WAR DESOLATIONS ARE DETERMINED (or have been decreed).


Daniels 70th week19
Daniels 70th Week

  • AND AFTER THREESCORE AND TWO WEEKS or sixty-two ‘sevens’ which is 434 years (note the 434 years, plus the 49 years, equals a total of 483 years total),
    SHALL MESSIAH (which is Jesus Christ) (or the Anointed One will) BE CUT OFF (or killed) (or CUT OFF FROM THE LAND OF THE LIVING-ref Isa 53:8) (Jesus Christ was crucified),


Daniels 70th week20
Daniels 70th Week

  • BUT NOT FOR HIMSELF.  He did not die for Himself. 

  • Jesus never sinned. 

  • He died for those who should trust on Him as their Lord and Savior.

  • We note that it said AFTER 434 years this would happen.

  • The verse continues, AND THE PEOPLE, which are the people of the Roman Empire, the fourth beast, the people —
 OF THE PRINCE (or ruler) THAT SHALL COME.


Daniels 70th week21
Daniels 70th Week

  • The prince that shall come is referring to the Antichrist that would come in the future.

  • The verse continues, SHALL DESTROY THE CITY which is Jerusalem
AND THE SANCTUARY or temple; AND THE END THEREOF SHALL BE WITH (or will come like)
A FLOOD, which can indicate with great force or mightily, AND UNTO THE END OF THE WAR wherein the Roman Empire comes against Jerusalem, unto the end of this war, DESOLATIONS ARE DETERMINED (or war will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed-NIV)-Dan 9:25,26.


Daniels 70th week22
Daniels 70th Week

  • Jesus also prophesied about the temple's destruction, in Mt 24:2-AND JESUS SAID UNTO THEM, SEE YE NOT ALL THESE THINGS (the temple)? VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THERE SHALL NOT BE LEFT HERE ONE STONE UPON ANOTHER, THAT SHALL NOT BE THROWN DOWN.


Daniels 70th week23
Daniels 70th Week

  • The commandment went forth to restore and rebuild Jerusalem, just as predicted. The city, street, and wall were rebuilt in troublous times. Jesus Christ, the Messiah, did come. After the sixty-ninth week, He was crucified, cut off out of the land of the living, but rose from the dead and ascended up to be with the Father. Then the fulfillment of the feast at Pentecost, signified the beginning of the church age. Within a generation, the temple was destroyed and the city. All happened exactly as prophesied.


Daniels 70th week24
Daniels 70th Week

  •   As the summer of 68 A.D. came (dates are as best as can be determined), Jerusalem was near defeat by the Roman legions. Vespasian was made emperor in 69 A.D. He allowed his son, Titus, to make the final attack, which came in 70 A.D. The temple (often referred to as Herod's temple) was destroyed. Not one stone was left upon another, as Jesus had said. Multitudes were slaughtered.


Daniels 70th week25
Daniels 70th Week

  • By the year 73 A.D., all traces of a self-ruling Jewish nation had completely disappeared. Israel was scattered among all nations.
    Jesus said, DAUGHTERS OF JERUSALEM, WEEP NOT FOR ME, BUT WEEP FOR YOURSELVES, AND FOR YOUR CHILDREN. FOR IF THEY DO THESE THINGS IN A GREEN TREE, WHAT SHALL BE DONE IN THE DRY?-Lk 23:28,31.


Daniels 70th week26
Daniels 70th Week

  • Then from the time of Pentecost to the soon coming Rapture, there are seven churches.

  • They are listed in the Revelation.

  • Then the Jews began to return to the land of Israel.

  • Israel became a nation on May 14, 1948.

  • Soon, the Rapture will occur, ending the church age.

  • The Antichrist will come forth.


Daniels 70th week27
Daniels 70th Week

  • Sixty-nine of the seventy weeks (or 483 years) have been fulfilled.

  • One week (or 7 years) remains, which is the Tribulation.

  • There is a gap (or time lapse) between the events of verse 26 and the events of verse 27.

  • The seventieth week is yet to come. It is the period called the Tribulation.


Daniels 70th week28
Daniels 70th Week

  • THE SEVENTIETH WEEK

  •     9:27. AND HE SHALL CONFIRM THE COVENANT WITH MANY FOR ONE WEEK (or one ‘seven’): AND IN THE MIDST (or middle) OF THE WEEK HE SHALL CAUSE THE SACRIFICE AND THE OBLATION (or offering) TO CEASE (or end), AND FOR THE OVERSPREADING OF ABOMINATIONS HE SHALL MAKE IT DESOLATE (or on a wing of the temple, he will set up an abomination that causes desolation-NIV),


Daniels 70th week29
Daniels 70th Week

  • EVEN UNTIL THE CONSUMMATION (or complete destruction), AND THAT DETERMINED (or that is decreed) SHALL BE POURED UPON THE DESOLATE (or on him).


Daniels 70th week30
Daniels 70th Week

  • AND HE (which is the Antichrist, which shall come from the people that destroyed Jerusalem and the temple, in approximately 70 A.D.—the Roman Empire), SHALL CONFIRM (or sign or agree to)
THE COVENANT (or treaty, agreement, or peace accord)
WITH MANY (which is Israel and others) FOR ONE WEEK (or one ‘seven,’ or for seven years).


Daniels 70th week31
Daniels 70th Week

  • (Note, the confirming or signing of this covenant is the beginning of what is called the Tribulation.)

  • God warns Israel regarding this treaty and trusting the Antichrist. BECAUSE YE HAVE SAID (Israel has said), WE HAVE MADE (or entered into) A COVENANT (or treaty) WITH DEATH (with the Antichrist), AND WITH HELL (or with the grave) ARE WE AT (or have made an) AGREEMENT. In making a covenant with the Antichrist, Israel, in effect, was in agreement with hell.


Daniels 70th week32
Daniels 70th Week

  • WHEN THE OVERFLOWING (or overwhelming) SCOURGE SHALL PASS THROUGH (or sweeps by), IT SHALL NOT COME UNTO US (or it cannot touch us): FOR WE (Israel) HAVE MADE LIES (or a lie) OUR REFUGE, AND UNDER FALSEHOOD HAVE WE HID OURSELVES-Isa 28:15. Israel should have trusted God for their protection. Instead, they chose to make falsehood their hiding place, protection, and hope.


Daniels 70th week33
Daniels 70th Week

  • They have trusted in lies—in the Antichrist—for their security, their refuge, and their hope for peace. Israel believes that, because of the covenant with the Antichrist, when the overwhelming scourge shall pass through, they will be protected. They are blind to the truth of what they have done.


Daniels 70th week34
Daniels 70th Week

  • As it is written, FOR WHEN THEY SHALL SAY, PEACE AND SAFETY; THEN SUDDEN DESTRUCTION COMETH UPON THEM, AS TRAVAIL UPON A WOMAN WITH CHILD (or as labor pains on a pregnant woman-NIV); AND THEY SHALL NOT ESCAPE-1 Thes 5:3.


Daniels 70th week35
Daniels 70th Week

  • The invasion of Israel shall take place.
    Jesus foretold that this would happen; as it is written, I AM COME IN MY FATHER’S NAME, AND YE RECEIVE ME NOT: IF ANOTHER SHALL COME IN HIS OWN NAME (which is the Antichrist), HIM YE WILL RECEIVE-Jn 5:43. Israel turns to the Antichrist for protection.


Daniels 70th week36
Daniels 70th Week

  • Later in the Tribulation, many in Israel shall receive the Antichrist as their Messiah.
   

  • God tells Israel, regarding the covenant with the Antichrist, AND YOUR COVENANT WITH DEATH SHALL BE DISANNULLED, AND YOUR AGREEMENT WITH HELL SHALL NOT STAND; WHEN THE OVERFLOWING (or overwhelming) SCOURGE SHALL PASS THROUGH (or sweeps by), THEN YE SHALL BE TRODDEN (or beaten) DOWN BY IT.


Daniels 70th week37
Daniels 70th Week

  • The very agreement that Israel thought would be their protection is now going to be their downfall. FROM THE TIME THAT IT GOETH FORTH IT SHALL TAKE YOU (or carry you away): FOR MORNING BY MORNING SHALL IT PASS OVER (or sweep through), BY DAY AND BY NIGHT: AND IT SHALL BE A VEXATION (or sheer terror) ONLY TO UNDERSTAND THE REPORT (or message)-Isa 28:18,19.


Daniels 70th week38
Daniels 70th Week

  • It will bring sheer terror to those that can understand what has happened and the report or message.
   

  • FOR THE BED IS SHORTER THAN THAT A MAN CAN STRETCH HIMSELF ON IT: AND THE COVERING NARROWER THAN THAT HE CAN WRAP HIMSELF IN IT-Isa 28:20.


Daniels 70th week39
Daniels 70th Week

  • The bed and covenant represent the Antichrist.

  • The bed is too short.

  • One cannot wrap himself in it for warmth and protection.

  • Likewise, the covering that the Antichrist offers is not sufficient.

  • It will not accomplish the purpose that Israel thought it would.

  • It will not save them.


Daniels 70th week40
Daniels 70th Week

  • It cannot protect them.

  • The only true protection that a person can really have is Jesus.

  • All other beds are too short, and all other coverings are too narrow.

  • All other coverings will pass away.


Daniels 70th week41
Daniels 70th Week

  • Dan 9:27 continues— AND IN THE MIDST OF THE WEEK (or middle of the ‘seven’) (or in the midst of the 7 year Tribulation) (or three and one-half years or 42 months from the end of the Tribulation), (note, this is showing that there are two parts to the Tribulation, separated by this event). The last 42 months of the Tribulation is also called the "Great Tribulation."
HE (the Antichrist)
SHALL CAUSE THE SACRIFICE AND THE OBLATION (or offering) TO CEASE (or end), which are taking place at the temple (or will put an end to sacrifice and offering-NIV).


Daniels 70th week42
Daniels 70th Week

  • This shows that the sacrifice and oblation will restart in Jerusalem as in olden times during the first part of the Tribulation.

  • By this and other Scriptures, we also note that a temple will have to be rebuilt in Jerusalem for the sacrifice and oblation during the first part of the Tribulation.
   

  • At some time, probably during the first half of the Tribulation, the Antichrist will be killed but then return to life.


Daniels 70th week43
Daniels 70th Week

  • The Antichrist, the son of Satan, will move into THE TEMPLE OF GOD, SHEWING HIMSELF THAT HE IS GOD-2 Thes 2:4.
   

  • The Antichrist shall stop the sacrifices and oblations.
   

  • The Scripture continues—AND FOR THE OVERSPREADING OF ABOMINATIONS (or because of the abominations being spread or placed in the temple) HE (which is the Antichrist)
SHALL MAKE IT (which is the temple)
DESOLATE.


Daniels 70th week44
Daniels 70th Week

  • This is referred to as the "abomination of desolation," in Mt 24:15. The temple is defiled. Some kind of abomination is set up on a wing of the temple. Perhaps, the image that was made to the beast will be placed there, as it is written THAT THEY SHOULD MAKE AN IMAGE TO THE BEAST-Rev 13:14. People will be required to worship it or be put to death-ref Rev 13:14,15.


Daniels 70th week45
Daniels 70th Week

  • As it is written, THE DAILY SACRIFICE SHALL BE TAKEN AWAY, AND THE ABOMINATION THAT MAKETH DESOLATE SET UP-Dan 12:11. The verse continues—
    EVEN UNTIL THE CONSUMMATION (or end) (or complete destruction) The Antichrist shall reign for 3 ス years (or 42 months, or 1260 days) until the end, the time that has been determined for him to reign.


Daniels 70th week46
Daniels 70th Week

  • Immediately after the Tribulation, Jesus shall return at the time of Armageddon. When Jesus returns, AND THAT DETERMINED (or that is decreed) SHALL BE POURED UPON THE DESOLATE  (or on him, the Antichrist)  (or until the end that is decreed is poured out on him-NIV, the Antichrist) (or until the Antichrist is consumed). The temple that was made desolate is included in "that determined."


Daniels 70th week47
Daniels 70th Week

  • The end or last things that God has decreed in His Word which are determined against the Antichrist shall come to pass, or be poured out upon him.
   

  • Dan 8:25-(The Antichrist)SHALL ALSO STAND UP AGAINST THE PRINCE OF PRINCES, which is Jesus; BUT HE SHALL BE BROKEN WITHOUT HAND (or not by human power).


Daniels 70th week48
Daniels 70th Week

  • The STONE WAS CUT OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN WITHOUT HANDS...IT BRAKE IN PIECES THE IRON...THE CLAY-Dan 2:45. He shall be broken by spiritual power not human power, when Jesus returns. For THAT WICKED...THE LORD SHALL CONSUME WITH THE SPIRIT OF HIS MOUTH-2 Thes 2:8.


Daniels 70th week49
Daniels 70th Week

  • What is the end that shall be poured upon the Antichrist? The Antichrist (which is also called the beast) and false prophet shall be cast alive into the lake of fire-ref Rev 19:20.
   

  • 7:26. BUT THE JUDGMENT (or court) SHALL SIT. What God has decreed will take place. Jesus shall return; the judgment of the nations shall be held.


Daniels 70th week50
Daniels 70th Week

  • AND THEY SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS DOMINION (or power), referring to the power and authority of the Antichrist, TO CONSUME AND TO (completely) DESTROY IT UNTO THE END (or forever).


Daniels 70th week51
Daniels 70th Week

  • The Tribulation period is generally understood to be 7 years or 2520 days long. This is divided into two parts; each part is normally understood to be 42 months or 1260 days, however, the Lord has shortened those days.


Daniels 70th week52
Daniels 70th Week

  • THE PROPHECIES OF THE SEVENTY WEEKS OF DANIEL

  • WHAT IS THE ACTUAL TIME-FRAME:

  • Seventy weeks or 490 years are determined

  • THE PROPHECY IS ABOUT WHO OR WHAT?

  • Upon thy people, Israel

  • And upon thy holy city (Jerusalem)


Daniels 70th week53
Daniels 70th Week

  • NOTICE THAT THE weeks concern thy people (Daniel's people)

  • and thy holy city (Daniel's native city, Jerusalem).

  • They don't concern the church at all.

  • It came into existence after the 69th week, and will be raptured before the 70th.


The rapture
The Rapture

  • What is the "Rapture"?

  • Before the awful events of DANIEL’S 70TH WEEK reveled in the Book of Revelation unfold (Chapter 6-19), the Lord is going to remove from the earth all those who have died and had accepted Christ as their personal savior AND all those currently alive who have accepted Christ as their personal savior.


The rapture1
The Rapture

  • The "come up hither" in Revelation the 4th chapter shows that the disappearance of all these people will be because they have been taken "up" prior to the judgments and wrath of the 6th-19th chapters.

  • The disappearance of these believers is the NEXT EVENT on the prophetic calendar.


The rapture2
The Rapture

  • 1 Thessalonians 4:16   For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout , with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first :

  • 1 Thessalonians 4:17   Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.


The rapture3
The Rapture

  • The Fullness of the Gentiles

  • The Lord is Not Willing that Any Should Perish

  • 2 Peter 3:8   But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.


The rapture4
The Rapture

  • To the LORD time is irrelevant.   He is still on the throne and He is working out His purposes.   Why has He NOT already come for His Church?   Here is the answer:

  • 2 Peter 3:9   The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance .


The rapture5
The Rapture

  • The LORD has been gracious to us.  

  • He is giving the unbelievers a chance to repent 9change their thinking) before the tribulation begins.

  • The 70th Week cannot begin until the last Gentile Believer comes to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • This answers the question, WHEN WILL HE RETURN?


The rapture6
The Rapture

  • I t relates to the "Day of the Lord", The Second Coming":

  • The "Day of the Lord" WILL come and it begins with the tribulation and it will end AFTER the 1000 year reign of Christ when a New Earth and New Heaven are brought forth when the current earth is renovated by fire.


The rapture7
The Rapture

  • 2 Peter 3:10   But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

  • 2 Peter 3:11   Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,


The rapture8
The Rapture

  • Watch:

  • 2 Peter 3:12   Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

  • What are we looking forward to?

  • The "Day of the Lord".


The rapture9
The Rapture

  • But notice, we are not only "looking for", but while "looking for" the "coming of the day of God ", we are also "hasting" (hastening) the "coming of the day of God."  

  • Since the tribulation is a fixed length (7 years of 360 days each) and since the 1000 year millenium is fixed in length, then, what could this mean?  It can only be a reference to the time of the rapture .


The rapture10
The Rapture

  • Look at it again:

  • 2 Peter 3:12   Looking for and hastening unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

  • We hasten it by bringing the Gentile Believers into the Family - until the last member is in - then comes the Rapture.


The rapture11
The Rapture

  • 2 Peter 3:13   Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness .

  • 2 Peter 3:14   Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.


The rapture12
The Rapture

  • We are to consider (ACCOUNT) that the longsuffering of our Lord is for salvation.

  • He is longsuffering in that He did not come in the rapture today.He is not willing that "Any should Perish", but that all come to Repentance - a change in their thinking - a change from self-reliance, or works, or a cult, or a false religion, or some other means of salvation, to Faith Alone in Christ Alone!


The rapture13
The Rapture

  • Are YOU one of those who is holding up the coming of the Lord?  If YOU are NOT WILLING to REPENT, you are not HIS.  

  • 2 Peter 3:15   And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;


The rapture14
The Rapture

  • An example:

  • 1 Peter 3:20   Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

  • God warned Noah 120 years in advance


The rapture15
The Rapture

  • Genesis 6:3   And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

  • Before God sent the flood, He took Enoch, just like He will take the Church in the rapture.

  • Genesis 5:24   And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.


The rapture16
The Rapture

  • Enoch was here one instant and gone the next.  He disappeared before the flood, just like the church will disappear before the tribulation.  The Jew will go through the tribulation, under the protection of the Almighty, just like Noah and his family.


The rapture17
