    Default When did the 70 weeks of Daniel 9:24 begin?

    When did a 70 years (Jeremiah 29:10-14), paralleling the 70 weeks of Daniel 9:24 begin?

    As there is nothing new under the sun, and “that which has been is that which will be”, when was the start of the 70 weeks before there is an “end of sin”, atonement has been made for iniquity (Hosea 5:11), and the most holy place is anointed (Dan 9:24)? As the “wicked” still thrive, and Ephraim and Judah have yet to acknowledge their guilt (Hosea 5:15), when did the 70 weeks begin, and when will it end? Apparently there are two answers; One starting with the decree of Cyrus, and time, times and half a time later (Daniel 7:25), after 69 1/2 weeks, another start. Apparently, Judah started coming out of the nations starting at the Balfour declaration after WWI, which allowed the Zionist to start coming to Judea around 1918. 50 years later, on the Jubilee of that event, 1948, 70 years ago, the nation of Israel was born, giving a new formal decree for their new home. Using the Holy days as a reference, as to the coming “awesome day of the LORD”, when the son of man was given dominion over “all the peoples, nations , and men of every language” (Daniel 7:13-14). First Daniel 2:35 & 44 must be met, which is to crush all the kingdoms of Daniel 2:35, which would be done in Zechariah 14. The start would be with the Passover Feast of Unleavened Bread, the passing over of the angel of death, when those in Jerusalem and on Zion can escape (Joel 2:32). The end would be the after the feast of trumpets, the repentance of Judah and Ephraim (Hosea 5:15) and the feast of atonement, which is for the forgiveness of sins, and the feast of Booths, whereas, Israel, which is scattered among the nations (Ez 36:24), and after being doubly repaid for their iniquity (Jer 16:18) will be hunted down (Jer 16:16) and brought back to the land of Jacob (Ze 37:1-25), and have one shepherd/king (Ez 37:24) & (Ez 34:23-24).

    New American Standard Bible
    Daniel 9:24
    "Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an
    end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place.

    New American Standard Bible
    Ecclesiastes 1:9
    That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun.

    "For thus says the LORD, 'When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place.

    Seventh Day Adventists, and perhaps other groups, believe that in prophecy each day represents a year. 70 weeks would then represent a period of 490 literal years. They believe that this period began with the proclamation in Daniel, from the going forth of the proclamation to rebuild and restore Jerusalem. This was given in 456 BC by Artaxerxes, and can be found in the book of Ezra. SDAs also historicists, meaning they view prophecy as a process that has been ongoing throughout history without gaps. They point to specific events in history as fulfillment if prophecy, for example, the great earthquake mentioned was fulfilled in 1755 by the Lisbon earthquake, the time of the end began in 1798, the darkening of the sun was in 1790 and the stars falling was in 1833. They believe the Pope is the anti- Christ as well. Prophecy is very interesting and there are many views, I don't know how any particular view can be proven or disproved, but Jesus did say that no further signs will be given- all propecy has been fulfilled except the 70th week and the events after that. The born again don't have to worry about prophecy, the final events are kicked off with the Rapture...
    They're not terrorists. They're just people bitterly clinging to their guns and Qurans.
