Daniel’s Seventieth Week and The Year 2029
Dan 9:24-27 NASB “Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the wrongdoing, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for guilt, 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 understand 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 streets 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. “And he will confirm a 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 the one who makes desolate, until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, gushes forth on the one who makes desolate.”
Jesus is Messiah the Prince who came and died on the cross in the year 33 AD. So we know that part is fulfilled. We are now looking at another way for the 69 weeks to be fulfilled again; verse 25 is a double-fulfillment prophecy!
We know of two instances in history in which the walls were commanded to be rebuilt. First by Artaxerxes in the year 445 BC which date was used by Sir Robert Anderson to calculated 69 x 7 years to the day Jesus entered Jerusalem with His first advent. The second time the decree went out to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, that the Church does not know about, was by Sulieman the Great a Turkish Muslim. He rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem again around the years 1538 or 1539. From Sulieman the Great’s edict to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, around 1538/1539, to 2021/2022 is 483 years = 69 x 7. Making 2021/2022 to 2028/2029 possible for the final 7 years of Daniel’s 70th week. However, this time of Sulieman’s edict is only an estimation. The year 1539 does land on a schmita year as does 2021/2022 and 2029/2030.
That calculation is based on regular years of the Gregorian calendar. But if you do the same calculation using the “360 day prophetic calendar,” as some call it, from 1539, you arrive at the date September 2015. That was when Agenda 2030 was pushed onto the world scene which I believe is likely the Covenant with Many or the antichrist’s covenant.
