Well, according to Daniel and other prophesies in the bible there was supposed to be after a long period of "tribulation" there was supposed to be a
long period of grace where the people of the world would live in God's total protection and love. The thousand year reign of the saints in
Revelation. The day of Jezreel in Hosea. And so on. That period of time is what the seventy sevens of Daniel eventually lead up to.
Now it appears that the 69th week ended in the first century AD. Per the prophecy of Daniel 9 it says the city and sanctuary would be destroyed and
that it would seem leaves the 70th week in limbo. But after looking into the matter I realized it's not a limbo. Rather something else happened and
that has to play out before the 70th week can occur. Essentially what happened was this.
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
Now this is the problem according to Jesus Christ.
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.
The death of John the Baptist was a terrible thing. Why? Because after looking at the prophesies I realized this. The job of Messiah was supposed to
have been at least a 2 man job. Possibly even a 3 man job. Put simply it appears that the job of redeeming Israel in the first century AD was botched.
Triggering the curse of Malachi.
So here's how to work out the details of the curse. It's actually scattered through out the old testament but here is how to put the pieces
To start with you need to read up on the covenant God made with the Israelites. Read up on Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28 through 30. Simply put
it's a binding agreement made between the Israelites and God. The benefits of being in this relationship. And the punishments when you don't meet
you obligations under this agreement.
Then the problem is finding the description of the curse of Malachi. And I found it in the book of Hosea.
The book of Hosea quite simply is one large prediction that the nations of Israel and Judah were to eventually face a long term top level Leviticus 26
curse. But in this book I found this detail. The length of the curse. The verses in question.
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.
Which makes no sense until you reference this verse.
2nd 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.
With the death of John the Baptist it triggered a two thousand year top level Leviticus 26 curse. And that fills the space between the 69th and 70th
week of Daniel 9.
Hopefully this filled in some of the gaps for you here.
