"Where does it says 7 YEARS tribulation ?"


 
    Where does it say we are going to have 7 years of tribulation?
Daniel 9:24 "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people [Jews] and upon thy holy city [Jerusalem], to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness [Salvation], and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy [Jesus]."
Acceptable Year of the Lord
    When Jesus came the first time his ministry was called the Acceptable Year of the Lord. Luke 4:18-21 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears." 
Weeks-Of-Weeks
    That year consisted of 70 weeks of days.  Where does it say weeks of years? It was 62 weeks of ministry and in the midst of that 63rd week he was crucified. Seven [7] weeks of days later the Holy Spirit descended on the 120 gathered in the Upper Room [of the Temple in Jerusalem ?].
    Weeks-of-weeks represented years but this says only weeks which would only represent weeks of days.  It was before the flood of Noah that years were counted by weeks-of-weeks and Jubilee years.
Trubulation
    When we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior Jesus says we will have tribulation. And it is true.  When we receive His Holy Spirit and read his word, which is truth and not a lie we encounter tribulation in the world. John 4:23-24 "But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."
    The father of lies and untruth is Satan.
62 weeks of days = 434 days
63rd week of days = 7 days    In the midst died for the many [all].
7 weeks of days = 49 days
Total = 490 days or 70 weeks of days or 7 x 70 = 490 days

Daniel 9:26-27 "And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince [Titus] 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 he [Jesus] shall confirm the covenant with many [all] for one week: and in the midst of the week [die and be raised from the dead/sacrifice accepted] he [Jesus] shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."
High Priest
    Jesus became our High Priest and any other to perform that task in the Temple is thus an antichrist. In John's time he said there were many. Was he referring to the [Jewish] high priests ?
Hebrews 5:5, 10 "So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he [God] that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee." "Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec." 
Antichrist
1 John 2:18 "Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time."
    Their Temple was not destroyed for another 40 years after Jesus arose from the dead: The Holy Spirit had been building that 3rd Temple for that many years.
Third Temple
1 Cor. 3:16 "Know ye not that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?"
 
    WOW ! Keven, I believe that the center of the Universe is the Earth !
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent said, "Yea, hath God said," Cannot God be taken literally when he writes of the "rising of the sun," then how can he be taken literally in writing of the "rising of the Son?" "Geocentricity" by Gerardus D. Bouw, Ph.D.
    Nicolaus Copernucus [1473-1543], a Polish canon who earned his living by preparing astrological charts and supporters such as Galileo Galilei [1564-1642] and Johannes Kepler [1571-1630] proclaimed heliocentrism.  These are new guys on the scene changing God's words after ca. 5500 years, or 110 Jubilees.
