Actually I looked over the 70 weeks prophecy of Daniel 9 and figured out the problem. Let me explain it here.
verses 24 through 27.
The 70 weeks are weeks of years adding up to 490 years. And they are broken up into 3 groups. 7 weeks or 49 years. Then 62 weeks or 434 years. This
adds up to 483 years. Then you have the last group of 1 week or 7 years to add up to the full 490 years. Now the big debate is "Has the 70 weeks
completed?" The answer is no. Why? The end of the 70th week is supposed to be the end of all of Israel's problems. Something is
overlooked. What is it? The day of Jezreel prophecy in Hosea.
In the book of Hosea is a long prophecy about Israel and Judah being subjected to a top level Leviticus 26 curse. Where the country is destroyed and
the people killed or taken away as slaves. But here's the important part. In verse 6-2 of Hosea we're given the time line of the curse. 3 days in the
presence of the Lord. BUT. If you read Psalms 90 and/or 2nd Peter 3-8 you would see those days are 1000 year periods of time.
Israel was to face a 2000 year top level Leviticus 26 curse before the 1000 year "day of Jezreel." The curse is still running and that means the 70th
week of Daniel 9 has never happened. It's a future event.
Then the question is "What caused the curse?" And looking for it I found it in Malachi 4.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a
And Matthew 17
10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son
of man suffer of them.
13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
According to the books of Zechariah and Malachi the Jews were expecting 4 messiahs. Not just one. The Lord, the 2 branches of Zechariah, and Elijah
the prophet. In killing John the Baptist they killed one of the Messiahs. Triggering the curse of Malachi. A 2000 year top level Leviticus 26 curse.
The redemption of Israel was delayed.
