I saw the post on the 70th week and thought I would point out the reason for a long gap between the 69th and 70th weeks. It turns out there was
unfinished business to complete.
So to start with look at verse 9-24 in Daniel.
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make
reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
I would say that this verse is yet to be fulfilled. There is still sin in the world. If this verse was fulfilled I would think the world would be a
much different place than it is today. There is simply something wrong here. And I found it in the book of Hosea and Malachi.
So here is the problem from 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 what's the problem? Jesus Christ claimed his John the Baptist was Elijah the prophet. And if you look at some of the other verses of Malachi you
realize that the job of messiah in the first century AD was a 2 person job. Herod in killing John the Baptist actually triggered the curse. Then the
problem is determining the length and severity of the curse. And I found that in Hosea.
4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an
ephod, and without teraphim:
5 Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the
14 For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall
15 I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.
According to their pasture, so were they filled; they were filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten me.
7 Therefore I will be unto them as a lion: as a leopard by the way will I observe them:
8 I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild
beast shall tear them.
9 O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.
10 I will be thy king: where is any other that may save thee in all thy cities? and thy judges of whom thou saidst, Give me a king and princes?
11 I gave thee a king in mine anger, and took him away in my wrath.
The curse they were slammed with was a top level Leviticus 26 curse. Destructions of your cities. Your people deported away to be slaves in foreign
nations. Random acts of destruction and terror. Not a good place to be in.
But then I figured out the length of the curse.
1 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
Those days are in the presence of God. And per Psalms 90 and 2nd Peter 3-8 those days would be thousand year periods of time.
The curse of Malachi is 2000 years long. Followed by a thousand year day of Jezreel mentioned in Hosea 1. That is filling the gap between the 69th and
70th week. And that explains the gaps in time in the prophesies of Luke 21 and Matthew 24. The times of the gentiles and the length of time for the
gospel of the kingdom to be spread to the world are simply different names for this curse.
