Questions About Daniel’s “70 Weeks” Prophecy

Q. Ive been checking out a website that contradicts the popular belief about the 70 weeks of Daniel. The teacher at this site says the “He” in the Daniel 9 24-27 is none other than Christ.  He also says,  “A careful study of Daniel’s prophecy of the seventieth week, clearly reveals 3 ½ years have already been fulfilled by Jesus earthly ministry, thereby leaving only 3 ½ years still future to be fulfilled.”

My question is where do prophecy teachers get the 7 year tribulation period from and where exactly does it say Israel will sign a peace treaty?

The End Of the Age?

Q.  I have a question after talking to my pastor this last Sunday.  I asked him if he felt we were in the “End of The Age” and he said our church believes that when Jesus came the first time THAT was the beginning of the “End of The Age.”  I want to talk to him more about all I am seeing and understand more.  So far in my church I kind of get the brush off like they are too busy to answer.   Have you heard of this before?

The Branch

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will raise up to David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land.(Jeremiah 23:5)

Listen, O high priest Joshua and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch.(Zech 3:8)

Here is the man whose name is the Branch, and he will branch out from his place and build the temple of the LORD.(Zech 6:12)

In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land will be the pride and glory of the survivors in Israel.(Isaiah 4:2)

Borders Of The Promised Land

Q. I have some questions regarding the borders for Israel. I have looked for answers but haven’t come up with anything I feel real confident about as far as accuracy. Has Israel ever inhabited all the land that the LORD promised Abraham? Are they doing so now (minus the West Bank and Gaza of course)? If the war prophesied by Psalm 83 comes to pass in the manner we expect it to and Israel gains additional territory from what it has now would they then be in full possession of the LORD’s Promised Land?  Assuming that they are not in full possession now: How would their gaining full possession affect End Times time tables?

Another Dispensation?

Q. I was reading a few chapters of (a book on prophecy) and if I understood well, the author seems to believe that the 7 year Tribulation (Daniel’s 70th Week) is another dispensation than the dispensation of Grace.  I tend to agree with this myself. This would also fit well with your teaching that people may lose their salvation in the Tribulation, unless they “endure to the end”. Do you agree with this and if so, in what measure.

Watch Out For False Messiahs

Q.  I have a question regarding Mt 24:5 “For many shall come in My Name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many”.  This verse is often quoted to describe cult leaders misleading their flock.  The text itself however seems to be saying that those doing the deceiving aren’t coming in their own name but His and aren’t saying they themselves are the Christ but Him.  What exactly is this verse saying then?

When Do The Sacrifices Stop?

Q.  My question refers to Israel AFTER the rapture of the church. You mention (which I believe) that the battle of Ezekiel will be used to once again “wake up” Israel and turn their hearts back to the Lord and put a desire back in their hearts to rebuild the temple, but here is where my confusion begins. After the battle, it is mentioned that they will rebuild the temple and begin the sacrifices in the temple again because they are back in old covenant relationship with God. At what point will they see and accept the Messiah, Jesus, and STOP the sacrifices? Will it be at the 2nd Coming? I’m just confused about the starting of the sacrifices again and I’m not sure when they will finally see and accept Jesus as Messiah and realize His sacrifice is sufficient. Thank you so much.
