The 7 Year End Time Covenant in Days and Years

peace-and-war

-

I took the timeline fragments in Daniel and pieced them together to form not just 7 year view, but one that spans 1335 years since the current desolation. The comparison is interesting.

I looked at 2 time frames:

1. Short - The book of Daniel mentions the antichrist (end time enemy of Israel) and different aspects of his “one week” covenant with Israel. I tried to reconcile a 2400 day fragment with the 2520 days for the total 7 years, as well as a 1335 day fragment at the time of the time of trouble.

2. Long – The current Temple Mount is already desecrated with the Dome of the Rock. Daniel 12:11-12 was used to determine how much longer the Dome would be there.

Here are the results for the Short 7 year timeline (first I show the time fragments, then I summarize them):

The traditional time for the Jews to celebrate the cleansing of the Temple is Chanukah, which occurs about the 2nd or 3rd week in December. Notice that the cleansing starts at “C.” It is complete by “F,” 45 days later.

If God was following the Jewish calendar, then backing up 45 days from December puts the end, and therefore the beginning, of the Tribulation at the end of October, or early November. Keep this in mind as you look at the Long timeline.

Here are the results for the Long timeline:

dome-to-end-of-desolation

Notice that the Yom Kippur War occurred during the entire month of October, 1973. The 6 day war in 1967 allowed Israel to reclaim the temple mount. A few days after the war over 200,000 Jews flocked to the Temple Mount and Western Wall in the first mass Jewish pilgrimage since the destruction of Temple in 69 C.E.

However, the Israeli government subsequently left the Islamic wakf in control of the site, although it remains under Israeli sovereignty. Because of this set-up, the site has become a flash-point between Israel and the Muslim world, especially when violent acts are perpetrated at the site.

Since that time, Israel has been attempting to continue to defend and “cleanse” its land of threats, and maintain some sort of access to the Temple Mount area.

Knowing that the cleansing is prophetically finished after 45 days (or years), here are a few interesting calculations:

*** The Dome of the Rock was erected between 685 and 691 CE, which covers a 7 year period, inclusive. I used the early date for the above calculations. So the calculations are estimated times.

1967 + 45 = 2012

1973 + 45 = 2018

1973 + 7 (for the 691 CE date) + 45 = 2025

If the yearly calculations are applicable to this prophecy, then the tribulation and the cleansing of the Temple Mount are would be finished by 2018-2025.

Also, if the Yom Kippur War date (October, 1973) is significant, then this would confirm a late fall- early winter onset for the 7 year covenant period in the near future. About 45 days after the end of the Yom Kippur war is Chanukah!

The Messiah is supposed to come in a Jubilee year. I think the next one is in 2018. Maybe this speculation has some reasonable grounds. Otherwise, it will be another 50 years.

****Note here:  I actually follow a pre-wrath mindset at this time, rather than a pre-tribulation ( 7 year) mindset.  I am not sure about why “the child” in Rev 12 (representing Jesus, and also maybe the church) goes to heaven before the woman (Israel) goes to the wilderness for the first 1260 days.  This might indicate an early rapture.  Notice that she flees to the wilderness a second time before the end of Rev 12. when Satan attacks her.  This particular study is not meant to solve the question of the timing of the rapture, but to look at other events, and the timing.

***  I have been thinking.  There is nothing in scripture that I see that says the covenant is a peace treaty with Israel.  It does not mention Israel.   The covenant could just be an agreement among Israel’s enemies, to gang up on her … Click here for more

  2. I’m not sure cleansing also means tearing down the Dome of the Rock. Inside that dome is a rock, as it implies. It is the peak of the mountain, and i doubt the temple was ever on that spot, which was never made level. The rock has grooves chiseled into it, I suppose for the sacrifice blood to run off under control. (I’ve been inside the Dome.)

    It would not surprise me if Israel put up a wall to separate the Dome from where the original Temple was, just inside the Eastern Gste. There is more than enuf room to do that. And of course, when Jesus enters the Eastern Gate, He will see the front door of the Temple just before Him.

    There are many indications the Israelis are already preparing to re-erect the Temple. Of course, there are opposing views of whether this will take place soon, or later. It is fun speculating as we watch. DavWms

  3. hi david,

    You caught me playing with a bunch of numbers. I wonder if this post makes any sense. I only referenced the scriptures, and did not quote them. Maybe i should work on this some more….

    there is to be a great earthquake around the 6th seal…maybe the dome will collapse…

    once way or the other, a temple will show up in some form..somewhere…..

  4. Marianne,

    Hi hope you are well.

    The seven years of the tribulation will be interupted by the events of Revelation 11. Thus your time line needs readjusting.

    Love,

    John

  5. Hi again, Marianne… LOL, I get off subject when I am reminded of another rabbit trail.

    A few years ago, I read that the mount is sinking on the Dome end. The (Jordanian, I think) keepers blame Israel for doing so much cave digging under the mount. The Israelies blame the keepers for weakening that end by all their excavation for commercial construction, including the ramp leading up to the top. Israel had warned them as they were building that ramp. So the Dome may fall anyway. Perhaps an earthquake might speed it all along. #;o)

    Back when Israel started bulding their wall to keep suicide bombers out of Israel proper, I perked up, wondering if that wall may go right over the Temple Mount. Perry Stone also thinks the new Temple will be built just inside the Eastern Gate. DavWms

  6. hi john,,

    True , there is a lot of things not on my time line…I do not know if the 2 witnesses come before the abomination or after. Do you?

  7. Hi Marianne,

    Hope you are well. Things involving the end times are very complicated. There are things we can know for certain, like the falling away from the truth and the increase of war and disasters.

    I believe that Satan is setting up a counterfit fufillment for prophecy. For example one thing I am certain of is that Jesus shall rule for a thousand years in His temple. I also know for certain that the temple of Jesus is the church and that is a spiritual temple. I believe Satan is trying to fufill this prophecy by setting the anti christ in a physical temple. Thus the meaning for the scripture in Daniel.

    When you look at things this way it gets very confusing. Now my opinion is that the first three and a half years of the tribulation will be one of deceit. That is Satan will magnify himself as God. He will have the solutions to our worldly problems, or so the world will think. Now when the two witnesses come they will expose the lies of Satan. Not only the lies of recent times but lies going back to the begining. Thus we will learn the truth about many things dark and hidden. There are secret organizations on the Earth right now that hold pieces of this knowledge just waiting for the right time to deliver it.

    Now the fact that there are two witnesses is very important. According to the law a man can only be condemned to death on the testimony of two witnesses. Thus these two will give their testimony before the Judge who is Jesus our Lord. Thus Satan will be offically condemned. There will be two who will testify of Satan’s evil and that will be sufficient for Jesus the Judge to condemn the evil one. God works through the limits of His own Word. It is impossible for God to lie thus we can trust the scriptures absolutely.

    Now understand that Satan is deluded. He actually believes some how in the depths of his twisted and distorted mind that he can defeat God the Allmighty. When Jesus was raised from the dead Satan suffered defeat in totality. Yet all things have not yet been put under the Lord’s authority. God is still using things to serve His own purposes. Satan rationalizes that Jesus came back from the dead only because he was God. When the two witnesses come back from the dead then Satan will know that his time is short and his defeat it certain. This will be the setting for the next three and a half years of the tribulation. Satan and his minions will be taking out their wrath on the Earth. Despite knowing defeat is certain they will cause as much evil as time allows. Thus God will cut this time short.

    I know also for certain that the rapture is at the end of time. If you look carefully at the scripture in Thessalonians and Revelation you will see this. Revelation talks of two ressurections. The first is for those who went through the tribulation and were beheaded for the beast. These will reign on Earth for a thousand years. The second ressurection is where all those are raised from the dead to face judgement. Mathew 25 talks about final judgements as well.

    There is no rapture of the church until the last event on Earth.

    Any way to answer your question the witnesses will come before the anti christ sits in the physical temple, I think. In the first part of the tribulation the anti christ will not claim to be God as this would be to apparent an evil. He will in effect take God’s glory much in the same manner the pope does today. Now when the devil has been exposed satan will proclaim himself as god. He will demand worship of all in the same manner as Nebachudnezzer did with his image. Many faithful will perish in refusing to do so.

    Also notice how there are clearly three workers of evil. The beast, the false prophet and anti christ. Revelation 19:20 and Revelation 20:2 clearly indicates the three. Satan tries to mimic God Allmighty who consists of the Father, Son and Spirit.

    Finally one of the witnesses may be the Holy Spirit in the flesh.

    There are things I have said I can prove through scripture, there are things I said I cannot prove through scripture. I would gladly give the scripture references and discuss these matters as it interests me greatly.

    To be perfectly honest when I read the prophets with the exception of the book of Revelation I see more of God calling for righteous living and repentence than insights about the future.

  9. hi all,
    what i have the last weeks on my mind is,
    that from 1948 (founding Israel) to 2018 are …

    …exactly 70 years!

    It fits!
    It appears as if at the “Tetrad” in 2014/15 is the Covenant Break and the beginning of ministry of the Two Witnesses.
    (There is an excellent article at stevenmccollins.com about the Two Witnesses)
    All the best,
    Silvan

    • aha! and with the peace agreement being signed in 2011….another wait and see, but if it is, then this puts us on schedule (as of G-D needs a schedule keeper LOL) for the following:
      2011= peace treaty signed, beginning of tribulation
      2014/2015= solar and lunar eclipses with tetrad occuring on feast days and Covenant Break and beginning of the ministry of 2 witnesses (per silvan)
      2018=Return of Christ?

  10. Hi Silvan,

    God certainly likes simplicity, doesn’t he? We make things too complicated. 70 is obviously a significant number.

    It seems like no matter how you calculate things, 2018 comes up as a result. This seems like a confirmation. I believe that God actually WANTS us to figure this out. The book of Revelation promises a blessing to anyone who considers the message there, and the events of the last days. So we are blessed !!!

    I look forward to the future. All this gives me hope, and strength for darker days ahead for the world. So while the world experiences fear and uncertainty, we can rejoice that our time is almost here! Even if there is a delay, we know who our savior is, and our final destiny.

    When I get to heaven, I will be so happy to see everyone who has come to know me here at Heaven Awaits. That includes getting to meet Silvan!

  11. I enjoy these subjects. But I don’t nail many of them down to commit that THIS IS THE WAY IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN! For example, each of the sides have proof from the Scriptures of when or even if the rapture will happen. Each sounds plausible from the Scriptures they quote. Somebody has to be wrong. We must see that if the Torah scholars of Jesus’ days could be wrong, then we may also be wrong.

    We need to know God is good at keeping things a mystery until it is time to reveal them to us. He certainly kept the coming of Messiah a mystery, and we are shown only a few people were ready for when He did show up. But then, how many were able to see that He was to be a suffering servant unto death, before He will eventually come as the Lion to rule? That was not revealed until after His death on the cross. And even now, we really don’t know how the second coming will come about, even if we can “prove” our point from the Bible. DavWms

  12. Hi David,

    Well, all I hope for is He comes soon, so I will not end up as an old woman stuck in a nursing home, with a diaper on. :_

    I think mysteries are for keeping our brains busy. If we are busy trying to solve bible mysteries, then we do not have time to get in trouble. :)

  13. Hi marianne. I wonder if your chart would still matter if you’d discovered that Daniel 9:27 KJV,refers to Christ Jesus confirming God’s New Covenant with believing Israel during his three and a half year ministry and not some future anti christ making and then breaking a seven year “peace treaty” at mid-point with unbelieving Israel?

    I do believe that the “abomination of desolation” will happen again,however,there need not be a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem. Only gentile armies compassing,killing and destroying or should i just say trodding underfoot the Holy Place [city] Jerusalem,as they did in 70AD… This was truly the “abomination of desolation” to the Jews… See Matthew 24:15 and compare it to its parallel account in Luke 21:20 KJV. Remember Marianne that the Lord Jesus did answer both of his disciples questions,see Matthew 24:3 KJV. According to some ancient writers,perhaps Josepheus was one of them,that not one Christian [born again believer] was lost in the siege of Jerusalem and the destruction of the temple that stood in the Lord’s day…Why? Because the disciples remembered and told all new and or other believers of the Lord’s warning to “flee to the mountains” when they saw Jerusalem “compassed” by armies or as in Matthew and Mark’s account the “abomination of desolation” standing in the holy place[Jerusalem],not seated,standing or propped up in the Holiest of Holies in some rebuilt temple in Jerusalem… Daniel the prophet spoke of the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the second temple,not a yet future temple,see Daniel 9:25,26…

    Mariaane,it was the Lord who made the way of escape for the Christians in 70AD.It was written [historically] that is, when one of the coalitions or armies retreated unexpectantly that that is when the born again believers escaped Jerusalem unharmed… See the Lords words in Matthew 24:15-21 Mark 13:14-21 and Luke 21-20-24 …

    Perhaps this will be the same scenario for believing [born again] Israel,during the coming tribulation…Surely they would have to believe in Christ Jesus before he rescues them either before,during or after the coming tribulation…

    Since there seems to be a problem with any and every position concerning the rapture [pre,mid,post,maybe not a partial rapture] of the church of Christ…I personally no longer hold to one or the other…Although the truth of the rapture or being “caught up” is 100% scriptural,however,when it takes place is a mystery,to me anyway.So then it is better,at least for me to just watch and pray like the Lord said…

    I know that i have written a lot,but you dont seem to mind doing research…

    Blessings and peace.

  14. Hi Yahsuamyking,

    I have heard the view that Messiah is around for the first 3 1/2 years. of the covenant. But he gets cut off after 69 weeks before the covenant gets mentioned or formed. The covenant does not occur until the 70th week.

    Daniel 11: 22,28,30, 31, also mention the abomination and the covenant again, and it is the “vile ruler” (11:21) who makes this agreement, not the Messiah. The vile ruler is someone at odds with the kings of the north and south also, as well as Israel. This is the same “prince to come” that confirms the covenant in 9:26 after the Messiah is cut off, then breaks it in the middle of the week in 9:27.

    Jacob’s trouble (12:1, 7) will occur after the abomination takes place. Before that, the vile ruler is bothering Israel some, but bothering others as well, and not entirely focused on Israel until the second half.

    I wonder if this makes sense.

    • curious about Tony Blair? He seems to be the leader of the quartet….and then we have another player, Defense Minister Ehud Barak….he has been making several trips to New York? lately….

  15. Hi Marrianne, thanks for writing me back…Although i own practically every modern English translation there is,i rely on the KJV for accuratecy…Did you know that the word sacrifice used in Daniel 8:11,12,13 11:31 and 12:11 is not found in the Hebrew/Aramaic manuscripts?…The only place in the book of Daniel where the actual word sacrifice appears in the Hebrew/Aramaic manuscripts is in Daniel 9:27… The KJV translators placed the word in italics,with the exception of Daniel 9:27 of course… Some say to help with the flow of English.I believe that it is more likely that the word sacrifice means something else,in these passages.Perhaps they really mean prayer and supplication and not a sin offering or the ultimate offering [sacrifice] for sins,the precious shed blood of Christ Jesus.Only his sacrifice could put and end [cease] all other blood sacrifices…Although the unbelievers still brought their animal sacrifices to the temple year after year,until 70AD that is,they were no longer accepted by God after the New Covenant was confirmed by Christ Jesus. Mariaane,unlike the KJV translators,the modern English translators copied the word sacrifice into those other passages of Daniel,as though they read them straight from the manuscripts…See for yourself.The Hebrew/Aramaic word number for sacrifice is 2077.You will find it only in Daniel 9:27.I used the Strong’s strongest concordance of the bible,but you can use any Hebrew/Aramaic concordance that you like…

    Well i am going back to my studies now, peace and blessings Mariaane.

  17. Hey Marianne.

    Yes it is interesting indeed.
    This is just like the word COVENANT used in Hebrews 8:7 KJV… It does not appear in the Greek manuscripts,yet it stands for or is a transliteration,that means TESTAMENT… However,when the word Covenant is used in Hebrews 8:8 KJV,it does appear in the Greek,because it is quoting the Hebrew passage of Jeremiah 31:31 KJV… Moreover a Covenant is made between the living and a Testament is enforced after the death of its testator…So then,Christ Jesus confirmed God’s New Covenant with Israel during his three and a half year ministry…Which means the New Covenant was DEDICATED with the blood of Christ Jesus and enforced after his death on the cross…

    After the perfect sacrifice of Christ Jesus,an animal sacrifice became an abomination to God… And Gentile armies standing in the Holy Land,is and always will be the “abomination of desolation” to Jews…

    Wow,so much to study…

    Peace Marianne.

    I’m sure there is a moral there somewhere?

  21. HI Glenn,

    Pursuing God’s truth and the mysteries of the bible is good exercise for the mind, and opens the door for God’s (not our) inspiration and interpretation. Since an idle mind is the devil’s workshop, a busy mind, especially thinking about God, is God’s workshop. We stay out of trouble that way too. :)

    Also, once the real interpretation comes, we will be alert to it. If we were apathetic, or just not thinking, the truth might pass us by. The truth is there to strengthen us. We will never know much on our own, but God loves those who love his word.

    If we are diligently studying his Word, he is more likely to communicate with us, than someone who never cares to read. A real revelation from God is a life changing event. I wish this for all of us who love Him.

    “It seems like no matter how you calculate things, 2018 comes up as a result.”

    It seems that all hints in Torah and Kabbalah point to year 2018/5778, this information becomes available only now, probably because 7 year tribulation is at hand.

  26. After Yehoshuamyking’s discussion on the word “covenant” and testatment I looked at the verse on blueletterbible.com and one of the words in the definition for the word is testament.

    One has to look at the antecedent relationship with the pronoun he and the punctuation of the sentence. It seems to me that the first full clause is contained in verse 26 of Daniel. Within that full sentence is a description of the people from which the prince that will destroy the temple will come. But it is contained and limited by that sentence in ver 26. It is positioned as an appositive because it follows the colon after “himself” and there is a period before the reference to Him begins.

    When verse 27 starts up it seems to me that the He would necessarily be in reference to the Messiah in verse v26 because the “prince” in v26 is embedded in the sentence in v26.
    You could delete “but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof [shall be] with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined” and the basic sentence would still stand. It would look like this: “And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week. . . ”

    Also when God made a covenant it was validated with blood. I’m not sure how the “prince” would be able to desire to confirm a covenant that God made with blood.

  27. Ive been reading up on everything here and on the internet and everywhere, and I must say for some reason Im terrified of it all, not sure why, guess I am not heading into the right place?

      There is no reason to be fearful.

      God gives us the spirit of peace, not fear. The scary things are reserved for the wicked.

      And God’s grace is more than enough to forgive you for anything you have done wrong, if you are sorry for those sins.

      Just accept God’s love and forgiveness, correct your mistakes, and go forward.

      You will be ok. WE discuss what will happen here, because we are watching for the Lord to come.

      Remember that the rapture is a rescue mission, as the Lord will deliver his own from the time of trouble.

      Read your Bible. Spend quiet time with God and get to know Him. You will find the peace you are looking for.

      • Marianne, I am astounded that you look at the rapture as a rescue mission. The catching up of believers happen at Jesus’ 2nd coming. There is NO teaching in the Bible of another coming. Paul was describing that the diseased believers will precede those who are alive and remain until the Coming of the Lord. Note that Paul refers to the Coming of the Lord in 1 Thessalonians 4:15 – Not another Coming, as there is no other Coming. Believers are promised total protection in the times of the end, but raptured…no! If you read 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, together with Matthew 24:29-31 you will see the similarities. I was also deceived by Satans’ rendition on the rapture, but by the grace of God and direction of the Holy Spirit, I came to understand the truth. I urge you to seek the truth on this matter as many, very many are expecting to be rescued because of this erroneous teaching. Jesus promises that the days will be shortened for the elect (Matt 24:22). Who is the elect. Don’t you think it is all the believers, Jew and Gentile alike.
        I love your approach and blog and I am very interested to see your comments.
        God bless

    • Hey Jason,

      John 10:27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. 30I and my Father are one.

      Hey Jason,

      I think every Christian feels that way at least once…we need to be reminded of how much we are loved by G-d. Whenever I get afraid I read Psalm 91

      If you have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, then you have absolutely NOTHING to worry about :) He loves you!

    • Jason,

      It is human to be scared. I find myself scared a lot too, but G-d told us to comfort one another that G-d would take care of us. Also, I sin everyday, and repent everyday. You are not alone.

      It took three years for G-d to answer my prayers. If you pray on your knees in your room with no one around, G-d may answer you stright away, or G-d will wait to see if you are really knocking at the door.

      Read the Bible. You can read on line if you don’t have one. Get in the gym, or play tennis. Don’t be drinking, or smoking.

      Your whole life is ahead of you. Do not throw it away. There is school, getting a job with a company, or be a part of the greatest military that ever stepped foot on this planet.

      Over, and out.

      • I should have written when I pray to G-d the Father, I always end the prayer in Christ’s name. We can do nothing to earn grace. Grace is given to us by G-d. It is free.

        Christ lived a perfect life, was the word of G-d made flesh, and was murdered for our sins. His gift to us is free, we only have to accept it. It can not be taken away.

        Good luck,

      You said you “try and try but keep falling away”. Sometimes in our walk with the Lord, we get in our own way and do not let God do his work in us. The worries you are facing are because you are putting a burden on yourself, that God by his Grace can remove. Surrender to God’s will, and you will find that assurance you are looking for.
      I don’t know if this is the answer your looking for, but don’t stop praying.

  28. Shalom,

    There was a blessed christian from Indonesia, he studied the Bible and learn the Jewish holidays and calendar of NASA about the solar eclipse and lunar eclipse. He wrote a book titled “Secret Revelation”. The first book discusses the “The Great Tribulaton and The Rapture of the Church”.

    As we know the state of Israel was established on May 14, 1948, but the main ground of the old city area of ​​east Jerusalem, had just returned after the six days war, exactly on the date of June 7, 1967 (28 Iyyar 5727).
    The day was then celebrated as the day of reunification of Jerusalem.

    Based on this it can be known when the date of the persecution, which coincided with the eclipse of the sun (also coincides with Rosh Hashanah),
    until when the great persecution that occurred (ten days thereafter), which coincided with Yom Kippur which begins jubilee year,
    and when the rapture will happen (coinciding with Sukkot), also coincided with the eclipse of the moon. All that will happen in 2015.

    Furthermore, we also can know when the Lord Jesus second coming (in 2018). Read the clue that is number of days on the book of Daniel and Revelation.

    Should I write here clearly these dates?
    Is it any good?

    1 THES 5:4
    “But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so That this Day Should overtake you as a thief.”

    Luke 12:39
    “But know this, that if the master of the house Had known what hour the thief Would come, Would he have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.”

    Dan 12:9-10
    And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many Marshall be purified, made white, and refined, but the Wicked Marshall do wickedly: and none of the Wicked Marshall understand, but the wise Marshall understand.”

    Amos 3:7
    “Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His Servants the prophets.”

    Regarding the meaning of Jewish holidays and clue about solar and lunar eclipse is implied in the Bible, so it is not heresy.

    Sorry my english is not so good, I translate it with google.
    May Jesus bless us all always.

  29. I read a book called “Islam in the End Times” Very good book. Read all of it from front to back. Too much to explain so the best way to send this message is to give you the book. It’s a PDF book and it’s free. Download it at fishhouseministries(dot)com. He explains it very well. Give it a read.
