""Standing in the Gap - 3""
Recall point #3 of Wohlberg's claims:++ Inserting a 2,000 year "Gap" between weeks 69 and 70 is completely "illogical".```````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````Pastor Bob, have you notice that from AD 31 Hanukkah to Passover AD 33 is exactly 490 days or 70 weeks as Daniel 9:24 says?Daniel 9:24 “Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.”Daniel doesn’t say week-of-weeks which would be 490 years. But also Haggai prophesies God would bless us on Kislev 24. Check it out...from Kislev 24, 31 AD to Nisan 14, 33 AD is 490 days or 70 weeks. The Acceptable Year was when he began His ministry which lasted 136 days longer that the lunar Jewish year of 354 days and 125 days longer than the Gregorian.Haggai 2:18-21 “Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord's temple was laid, consider it.  Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.Jesus was born on this day [Hanukkah] and also began his ministry on this date.Luke 4:16-21 “And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.  And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 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.”The 63rd week was when Jesus was crucified in the midst of that week and 7 weeks later was Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came down and filled all those believers in Jesus as Lord. Jesus was the one that confirmed the New Covenant with the many that believed on Him. The antichrist can’t confirm ANY covenant. John said there were MANY antichrists already. Antichrist means against Christ or unbelievers.1 John 2:18 “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.”Jesus was anointed and commissioned and then he baptized them in the Holy Ghost and sent them out to do all that he had done.Mark 16:15-20And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.  And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;  They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.  And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.I have a feeling that 70 years after His birth was when the Temple was burned. Those Jews that crucified Him never repented. But the Jews that believed took the gospel around the world. I may be wrong concerning the year but I think I’ll stick with it.So its the 63rd week in question here and not the 70th. It was all completed at Pentecost. That is when the 3rd Temple began to be built. God doesn’t live in a brick or stone building: He lives in you and me. JFH1 Cor. 3:16 “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”May God bless you.
