"TO: Kevin Drake RE: When does the '70th Week' begin?"
I believe the '70th Week
of Daniel' to be the seven-year period of time immediately prior to the
'Second Coming' of our Lord. Because the Second Coming is in
conjunction with and also fulfills the prophecy of the Fall Feasts, the
'70th Week' therefore must also begin in conjunction with the dates of
the Fall Feasts seven years earlier. ie. If the Second Coming is on the
Fall Feasts of 2017, the 70th Week has already begun on Rosh
Hashanah/Feast of Trumpets 2010. If the Second Coming is scheduled for
the Fall Feasts of 2018, the 70th Week will begin on Rosh Hashanah 2011.
does not teach that the entire 70th Week is "great tribulation",but
rather that "great tribulation" comes after the anti-Christ stands in
the holy place ie God's temple at the mid-point of the 70th Week when
he breaks the seven-year covenant. (Matthew 24:15 & 21).
'70th Week' is the last 'seven-year period of time' given to the Jews
as their last chance to accept Christ before His Second Coming or
suffer the consequences. The '70th Week' has nothing to do with 'The
Church' other than serve as a sign to us as to the timing of His
Coming. By watching Israel, and all events affecting Israel, in the
end-times serves as a sign to The Church as to the timing of His
Coming. ie. The rebirth of Israel on PENTECOST May 14, 1948 as a new
nation began the end-times clock count-down. Israel will be '70 years
of age' on PENTECOST 2018.
