Q. We know that there were declared by Daniels prophecy a term of years before ‘ Messiah will be cut off’ a term that were completed at 483 years, and the clock stopped ticking.
Would I be right in saying, that the clock should start ticking at exactly the same point that it stopped? If so, what is it that kick starts the clock again? Is it the rapture, is it that Israel is forced to sign a (false) peace agreement? or is it the Russian led invasion? Whichever it is do you not think that this will occur when the clock starts ticking again.
A. Sir Robert Anderson in his book The Coming Prince demonstrated that Jesus rode into Jerusalem 483 years to the day from the decree to restore and rebuild the city. Four days later He was executed and the clock stopped. Common sense tells us that the fulfillment of the remaining 7 years will be just as exact. I believe the event that re-starts the clock will be the Battle of Ezekiel 38 and specifically the point at which God intervenes and achieves the victory on Israel’s behalf. Ezekiel 39:22 says that “from that day forward the House of Israel will know that I am the Lord their God.”
