I'm sorry, I didn't see the postscript until I pasted it in my Pro and Con.
> > Jesus ministry was a 3 to 3.5 year ministry. So if both the Bible and historical fact show Jesus was declared His Son, Messiah the Prince by God at His baptism 69 weeks of years after the first decree, then why did the 70 weeks stop there at 69? Or did it? It can be shown that there are 69.5 weeks, or 486.5 ecllesiastical years (by the Hebrew Lunar year average of 364 days divisible by 7) from the first decree until the Crucifixion/Ressurrection.
Yes, there is a gap between the 69th and 70th weeks. My interpretations are in parentheses.
Dan 9:25-27 says, "Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks (69 weeks): the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks (i.e., after the total of 69 weeks) shall Messiah (Jesus) be cut off (killed, crucified), but not for himself (for us): and THE PEOPLE (the Romans) of the prince (the Roman False Prophet) that SHALL come (in the future Great Tribulation) shall destroy the city (Jerusalem) and the sanctuary" (the Temple, in 70 AD); (HERE IS THE BREAK)
"and THE END thereof (i.e., AT THE END OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION) shall be with a flood (an overflowing tsunami caused by the asteroid of
Rev 8:8 impacting the Mediterranean Sea), and unto the end of the war (the Gog and Magog war of Eze 38) desolations are determined. 27 And he (the False Prophet) shall confirm (or strengthen) the covenant with many (probably the UN) for one week (of years, 7 years): and in the midst of the week (Mid-Trib) he (the False Prophet) shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease (because he will sit in the Temple as if he is God), and for the overspreading of abominations (idols) he (the False Prophet) shall make it (the Temple) desolate, even until the consummation (God's Wrath, when the first asteroid hits the Mediterranean Sea and Satan's asteroid Wormwood obliterates Babylon near the Euphrates), and that determined (the asteroid Wormwood's impact) shall be poured upon the desolate" (or the desolator, the Satan-possessed False Prophet).
Isa 51:9 says, "Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD (i.e., the Son of God, Isa 51); awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut (lit., split) Rahab (Satan's planet, and formed the Asteroid Belt), and wounded the dragon (Satan)?"
Isa 22:16-18 says, "What hast thou here? (Babylon) and whom hast thou here (the Satan-possessed False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here (the Lake of Fire at Babylon), as he (Satan) that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock (the asteroid Wormwood, Rev 8:11)? 17 Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. 18 HE WILL SURELY VIOLENTLY TURN AND TOSS THEE LIKE A BALL into a large country (Babylon near the Euphrates): there shalt thou die (i.e., when he will be tossed into the Lake of Fire), and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house."
