From 20-year-old CJ (Corey) on the Rapture in the Air forum, July 28, 2010:
Daniel 9:25...Timeline of the ages!!!
We learn of the solar calendar by observing the sun.
We learn of the prophetic calendar by observing the scripture.
Observing the sun - a solar year has 365.242 days.
Observing the scripture - a prophetic year has 360 days.
What the scripture teaches becomes our insight into Gods prophetic calendar. We learn from the prophecy of the first coming of Messiah.
The prophecy Gabriel delivered to Daniel concerning the coming of Messiah specifies time of His first appearing.
"Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven 'sevens' and sixty two 'sevens.' It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble.
After the sixty two 'sevens', the Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing."
Gabriel specifies seven sevens and sixty two sevens from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem till the cutting off of the Messiah.
seven sevens – is the scriptures way of saying the number 49...
seven periods of seven = 7 x 7 = 49
sixty two sevens – is the scriptures way of saying the number 434...
sixty two periods of sevens = 62 x 7 = 434
We now know it was seven sevens (49 prophetic years of 360 days each) and sixty two sevens(434 prophetic years of 360 days each) for a total of 483 prophetic years of 360 days each, from the decree made in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes (445BC) to the year of the cross (32AD).
Even though this is a measurement of 476 solar years, Gabriel calls it 483 years. It is 483 years when the years are measured as 360 day units.
Gabriel is giving the measurements using Gods prophetic units of measurement thereby giving us insight into His prophetic calendar. The prophecy is fulfilled measuring the years as 360 day units.
GODS PROPHETIC CALENDAR OPERATES ON 360 DAY YEARS!!
Jesus foreshadowed the celebration of His redemptive work by giving Israel a special time of celebration called the year of Jubilee.
'Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants.'
'In this year of Jubilee everyone is to return to his own property.'
Jesus created the year of jubilee and the major feasts when He created time. The mathematical expression of Jubilee is fifty years. Lev. 25 instructs the Israelites to count off seven sevens(49) years and then proclaim the next year as the Jubilee, thereby creating a cycle of fifty years.
Count off seven Sabbaths of yearsseven times seven years so that the seven Sabbaths of years amount to a period of forty-nine years. Then have the trumpet sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement sound the trumpet throughout your land.
Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants.
It shall be a jubilee for you; each one of you is to return to his family property and each to his own clan. The fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you; do not sow and do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the untended vines.
For it is a jubilee and is to be holy for you. Eat only what is taken directly from the fields.
FIRST COMING - SEVEN SEVENS AND SIXTY TWO SEVENS
"Know and understand this: from the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven 'sevens' and sixty two 'sevens'."
Gabriel’s description of the first coming is seven sevens (49 prophetic years) and sixty two sevens (434 prophetic years) for a total of sixty nine sevens (483 prophetic years) that run consecutively to fulfill the prophecy of the first coming of Messiah.
Sixty nine sevens (483 prophetic years) WITHOUT INTERRUPTION fulfills the prophecy perfectly!
Why did Gabriel separate the sixty nine sevens into two groups of sevens? Why did Gabriel speak seven sevens and sixty two sevens instead of sixty nine sevens when it wasn't necessary to in regards to the first coming?
Scripture interprets scripture!!
We know exactly what seven sevens is from Lev 25.
It is the number of years counted off to mark the year of Jubilee!!!
Gabriel is giving us a reference point on Gods' prophetic calendar. He is indicating a Jubilee cycle encoded in Daniel's prophecy!! WOW
GODS PROPHETIC CALENDAR OBSERVES THE JUBILEE...
In reference to a year of Jubilee , the cycle of Jubilee is measured from Atonement, which is Tishri 10 on the Hebrew calendar.
If Nisan, 445 B.C is the year of the "decree", THEN the jubilee that the "decree" occurred in was the fall of 446 B.C on Atonement!!
Now, Atonement in the year 446 B.C was September 27th, 446 B.C because the the astronomical new moon confirmed on Sept 17, 446 B.C, so Atonement is just 10 days later!
Now, measured from Sept.27th, 446 B.C. (Jubilee year begins), the next Jubilee cycle to be fulfilled on Gods' prophetic calendar is cycle number fifty, or 2500 prophetic years because 50 * 50 is 2500 years!
Just as the prediction of the first coming was measured in prophetic year units of 360 days each, we will observe the same unit of measurement to measure to the next Jubilee.
Start from Sept 27th, 446 B.C., and count 2500 prophetic years forward to the get the FINAL (50th) Jubilee of the prophecy! In order to do this we translate from Gods prophetic calendar into mans' solar calendar, the exact same procedure followed to recognize the first coming.
Converting into solar years...
2500 prophetic years x 360 days = 900,000 days
900,000 days divided by 365.242 days = 2464.1196 solar years!!!
2464 - 446 = 2017!!! (allowing for no zero on count)
2017 A.D. is the year in which the prophetic Jubilee cycle is fulfilled!!!!!!!!!
Still don't understand??...
The placement of Daniels seventieth week is based on Gabriel indicating a Jubilee cycle with the words “seven sevens” and Jesus fulfilling Jubilee on His second coming!!
Gabriel specifies the first coming , leaves a gap and then describes the final 'seven' prior to the second coming. This is what we know as the famous Daniels seventieth seven. At this time Messiah will come again.
Daniels prophecy covers both the first and second coming!!!!!!
Encoded within the prophecy of Messiahs' first coming is the key which will unlock knowledge of His second coming! That key is "seven sevens" or Jubilee's!!!
This wording TELLS US that the 70 weeks prophecy of Daniel is in JUBILEE years hence "SEVEN SEVEN(S)" or 49 years!!!
In reference to the first coming the prophecy is accurate from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem given in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes ( 445BC)
In reference to the second coming the same prophecy is providing a key in being accurate to the very year of a Jubilee cycle on Gods' prophetic calendar.
In order for Jubilee to be fulfilled, the final seven will fit together with the year of Jubilee!!!
So, the Jubilee prophecy count BEGINS with the FIRST JUBILEE of the decree of Spring 445 B.C which is the fall 446 B.C on Atonement AND ends 50 Jubilee's later at the END of Daniel's Jubilee prophecy..HIS SECOND COMING!!!!
So, fall of 446 B.C (Jubilee proclaimed) PLUS 2500 prophetic years or 50 Jubilee's (2464 solar years) bring us to...
Fall 446 B.C PLUS 2464 solar year conversion count brings you to...
Fall 2018, not count zero as a year...the fall of 2017, the ending of the Jubilee count of Daniel's prophecy that began with the proclamation of the Jubilee in the fall of 446 B.C! During this Jubilee year, the "decree" went fourth in Spring of 445 B.C.!!!!
First jubilee of prophecy - Fall 446 B.C
Last jubilee of prophecy - Fall of 2017 A.D.
Add exactly "50" Jubilee's (2500 prophetic years) or 2464 solar years brings you to Fall 2017, the second coming!!!
Daniel 9:25 gives us exact year of first coming (Nissan 32 A.D.) and second coming (Tishri 10 2017)!!!!
2017 is fact!!!!!!
(Which minus 7 years = 2010 for the rapture.)
