Old Testament Prophecy

The Prophecy - Daniel 9:24-27 - Daniel's 70 Weeks

Old Testament Prophecy

24) Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place.

25) So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress.

26) Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined.

27) And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.

Description Of Prophecy:

This prophecy is primarily for Israel. Your people refers to Daniel's people, the Jews, often referred to as Israel. Your Holy City refers to Jerusalem. Read Other Names For Jerusalem.



Still waiting on the 70th week to bring total fulfillment to a close.

This prophecy is partially fulfilled since 69 of the 70 weeks have come to pass.



The first 69 weeks involved only Israel because the church did not exist yet. They were also fulfilled literally. This helps to make a powerful argument that the 70th week will not involve the church either and will also be fulfilled literally.(1)

This helps to support the idea that the church will be Raptured out before Daniel's 70th Week begins.

Although primarily for Israel the entire world will be greatly effected by the Time Of Jacob's Trouble. Most of the world will go through the seals (judgments) that are opened during this time that are described in detail in the Book of Revelation.
