working seventeen Jesus is the answer now that's a big great statement Jesus began to the question however is what are you asking no Jesus is the answer to what wealth all of life problems that threw you the answer to discouragement that through these the answer to your predicament of being lost that's true but in more than in a general sense and I want to demonstrate the Bible in prophecy shows that Jesus is the answer specifically to the conundrum that we left off at our last meeting last evening if you recall Daniel was given a vision in Daniel chapter eight and most of it a good portion of it he already understood from the previous visions that come before but a new element was introduced called the two thousand three hundred evenings and mornings were twenty two hundred days and of course in Bible prophecy day equals the guy will get into that bank so two thousand three in years yes this massive thing he says what does it mean in the Angels answer was it is true seal it up it's like what the answer the question of the WL right and we left with that bit of a cliffhanger hopefully putting you in Daniel shoes for just a little bit but I want to say tonight the answer to Daniel 's question is Jesus Christ that is in the general vague nebulous kind of spiritual cutaway but a very specific point in way that Jesus is the answer the key that unlocks the mystery of Daniel chapter eight is Jesus himself so before we get into that study however begin with the word prayer heavenly father thank you so much for you give us your word that we can come together in fellowship and study together and we ask that you would speak to us tonight clearly from these I think help us to understand that the same Holy Spirit who inspired his writing is here tonight to inspire our understanding would let the words I speak not be my words at all but let them be your words so that we can see Jesus more quickly for a prayed in Jesus name so let us review before we get into Daniel chapter nine which of course you can turn in your Bibles to Daniel chapter nine of you want to get a head start that's where were going tonight is Daniel chapter nine makes a good follow-up from Daniel chapter eight right datatype denies any page eight sixty seven in your pew Bible but what has your finding that lets quickly review easier to begin at the top of your worksheet there is a little charts a little graph outlines what we've learned in a very quick way so far in Daniel chapter two who was the one who received the vision Nebuchadnezzar if you don't recall I have the answers written room right there in front of you thanks so if you can't think of it all you do is read a now autonomously the ruling came was Nebuchadnezzar and it happened during his second year of his reign Daniel 's role in the end of chapter two was not to receive the vision but merely to interpret the vision for Nebuchadnezzar and I want to notice the extent of the interpretation was complete the interpretation covered from the time when they were starting their day in Babylon all the way until the cheese is the eternal kingdom is set up at the end of time but holy Mountain is established okay so that if it completes creation and interpretation then Q is all on its own a complete unit and now we're going to Daniel chapter seven down who receive this vision Daniel himself as he refers to as his first vision because the other one his vision it was never guess is that this was the road linking the back time is no longer Nebuchadnezzar but a gentleman by the name of Belle Shatzer it was during his very first year and I always like to bring up the point about exactly sure why but I think it's interesting trivia at all during the life of Nebuchadnezzar the one who received the dreams and visions was King Nebuchadnezzar Evelyn Daniel chapter two yup another one in Daniel chapter four but is not instilled to Nebuchadnezzar 's audit the way does the Lord speak directly to Daniel during the time of Belle Shatzer which we can find Daniel chapter five a good reason for that is the else out there is quite a scoundrel horrible awful and bejeweled and he did some pretty blasphemous things and Daniel chapter five records that story and we can get and that some of it done inspiring reading if you want to go home and read about what not to do regards at five is a ruling King the first year of his reign and the interpreter was just known as one who stood by the one of the people in the vision interprets the vision of Daniel just received for him and the extent of its interpretation again is complete it begins in and Babylon LSAT are still the king of begin to the time of the Prophet and it is with the establishment of God 's eternal Kingdom now add some elements of Daniel chapter two did not you call being attempted to very basic outline with Babylon media Persia Greece Rome and Rome divided into ten parts and then Jesus Wisconsin God 's kingdom is set up God 's eternal Kingdom very simple Daniel Chapter seven covers the same territory Babylon media Persia Greece Rome then Rome divided within this time Romans represented his beast is a beast with ten horns this this beast within one sprouted a little more than a third phase of Rome papal phase of Rome the Antichrist may rephrase row and then added and after its one thousand two hundred and sixty years of supremacy there would be a judgment in heaven and after that the little one would speak just a little bit more and then Jesus would not exactly a second Thessalonians and the apostle Paul pointed out when you see the same thing here a beginning in Babylon and ending with Jesus coming if the same span of history it just gives more detail expand and enlarge as it zooms in on this particular in the time portion of the chronology does that make sense is everybody on board with this I know that I've said it over and over but I want to ground you in this basic skeletal structure so that everything else we put onto it has a place to fix it okay we give you the framework build the foundations of the women of the wall space expanding the Daniel chapter eight I will chart the vision recipient was Daniel again the king on the throne is still Bell Shatzer but this time it's the third year of his reign so doing the simple math how long has elapsed from the first vision to the second vision two years so he is a complete fiction end of chapter seventy five man this is a very detailed version of what I've seen in Nebuchadnezzar 's dream with a lot of world history but then it's okay comes along now the third European processor the interpreter by the way it mentioned specifically gives us his name it's interesting and then after you have more explicit references to things instead of instead of just saying Angel or one who stood by said it says Gabriel how this man the many you should make them understand the mentioned by name by Lynn also specifically mentions BMI or the need of Persia and Greece very explicit in its interpretation of data chapter eight oh that interpretation is explicit it is also incomplete a it does not begin in Babylon anything wise that why that by the time the savings over we will now very clearly why it does not again in Babylon but more importantly it doesn't and with Jesus came to being set up at all it simply is with this cliffhanger of this new added timeframe of two thousand three hundred days or in prophetic time that's two thousand three hundred years and what happens at the end of the two thousand three hundred years under two thousand three hundred eight Shabbos thank you Mary V what Clinton's which is the day of atonement with a day in Jewish in a genuine understand that the day of judgment of all people this is the great day of God 's judgment and it's been again at the end of the two thousand three hundred years was the problem with finding out that it is the industry down three hundred years at the point that is like okay now I want to know about the two thousand three and you said yes it is it is true now seal it up for deals with the later time time to begin you will even be around for Daniel don't worry about it is closer that be done and Daniel was in the back to the very last verse of Daniel chapter eight how do Daniel received Daniel chapter eight verse twenty seven and I Daniel fainted and was what sick for days afterward I rose and went about the king 's business I was astonished by the vision but no one did what Daniel leaves that vision not understanding vision before we get into the interpretation there obviously were part of the vision he did understand for instance he knew what that ran the represented not only could he piece it together by aligning it up with Daniel chapter two and seven but also Gabriel tells them the RAM is the aversion check got that part no problem and that goes with this prominent lawyer that is Greece in the prominent part is its first game okay that degrees in history will not help that person chronicling was Alexander the great so he has no problem with Babylon he was living in the next thing would be need of urgent they would come great sequence of political history has no problem with there was something about Daniel chapter eight that he did not understand any are left not understanding correctly to make this point patently clear so now we go to Daniel chapter nine knowing Daniel 's mindset is incredibly important as we go into this chapter and chapter nine verse one annual notice a few things have changed in the first year of Darius the son of office address of the lineage of the home who is in power now the means we have to transition between Babylon and the Persian or spellcaster is the last team of Babylon in Daniel chapter five what you can read about his no good decision-making with the holders abominable heretical beast blasphemous feast and on that very night the Medes and Persians ganged up on him and came in and swept away one evening and now we have a new king in town it is interesting that Daniel survives will look like the Lord protect this man had a place for the present chapter nine verse one in the first year of Darius the son of managers of the lot lineage of the need who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans in the first year of his reign are Daniel what the next word what does it only understands the mystery that would get with the student understood five what by the books the number of the year specified by the word of the Lord through whom Jeremiah the prophet that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolation 's of Jerusalem a now this is interesting Daniel understood by the books so much you want to dissect for you but we just thought about going everything but noticed that Daniel is a prophet of God but when God is not giving him an immediate answer to his questions where does he turn for answers the word of God he goes back to the Scripture to the Bible itself right profits study other prophets do the profits inherently know all this deep mystical wisdom guards not they received what they receive from God when God is a good and they go back to the word of God anything I need to understand something in the brain verse two in the first year of his reign I then understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the Lord through whom one book of the Bible with the studying Jeremiah Jeremiah the prophet and he was looking specifically for the number of years that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolation 's on Jerusalem that you understand he grew up in Jerusalem was taken captive by Babylon under Nebuchadnezzar has now lived through Nebuchadnezzar and Belle Shatzer and now he is in the time of Ryan Mead and time is ticking along you know younger longer that the note you rugged young good-looking able to quickly learn you don't have to do is taken from Jerusalem he's aging you gone through a regime in the nose regime and another one anything isn't our time just about our ill art we were taken in captivity isn't it about time to go free now where does the latest I think this is fascinated by the way we still have the book of Jeremiah we can go back and read the very thing that Daniel was studying social dear Jeremiah chapter twenty five and witty come up with a seventy weeks in a seventy years concept Jeremiah chapter twenty five three page seven fifty five in your pew Bible very quickly we can look at these start with verse one look at how plainly Jeremiah spoke to the people both for the captivity of Babylon verse one word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah in the fourth year of July can the son of Joe asked the king of Judah which was the first year of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon which Jeremiah the prophet spoke to all the people of Judah and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem saying from the thirteenth year of the son of Josiah the son and of the king of Judah even to this day this is the twenty third year in which the word alone has come to me and I have spoken to you rising early and speaking but you have not what he's like look this is the first year of King Nebuchadnezzar and we've been told the Nebuchadnezzar to be the one that takes us into captivity I have been preaching this message you people for twenty three years and you haven't listened verse four and the Lord has sent to you all his servants the prophets rising early and sending them but you have not listened nor inclined your dear Junior said repent now every one of his evil way and if he will doing the dwell of the landlord is given to you and your fathers forever and ever do not go after other gods to serve them and worship them and do not provoke me to anger with the works of your hand and I will not harm you this is a completely self inflicted wound you're about to suffer yet over seven you have not listened to me says the Lord that you might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your own heart therefore per se thus says the Lord of hosts because you have not heard my words behold I will send and take all the families of the north of the Lord and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon notice we were first announced my servant and will bring them against this land against its inhabitants and against all these nations around it will utterly destroy them and make them in astonishment and hissing and perpetual desolation moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth of the voice of gladness the voice of the bridegroom to the voice of the bride the cellular millstones in the light of the lamp and the whole land shall be a desolation and an astonishment and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years so we go back to Daniel by the way find the same thing in the and Jeremiah chapter twenty nine but we need to keep moving on to make it unmistakably clear that Daniel picked up the book of Jeremiah and you of course read think about this Jeremiah has for twenty three years been preaching it this was the first year of King Nebuchadnezzar when he started to say your time is up Daniel is a young man likely in his teenage years when he's taken hostage that means he grow up listening to the messages of Jeremiah being breached and he saw his country go back over and back over and not get there together and now he's living in the other end of this seventy years of captivity or very close to what he sees is coming down the calendar line right and apparently has a concern on his mind he goes back to reject the Bible record how long are we supposed to be here and now we go back to genotyping nine in verse three what does Daniel do after he studies the word of the Lord he times now and he prays Jayna chapter nine verse three that I set my face towards the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplication with facts fasting sackcloth and ashes and I pray the Lord my God and make confession and said all Lord great and awesome God keeps his covenant and mercy with those who love him and with all those who keep his commandments you'll notice over and over parenthetically all throughout Scripture you will find love manifests in keeping God 's commandments if you love me keep my communities the Lord I pray the new confession who keeps his covenant and mercy with those who love them and with those who keep his commandments first five we have what sins and committed in an iniquity even by departing from your precepts in your judgments neither have we heated your servants the prophets by the way wasn't that exactly would Jeremiah was saying those twenty three years Daniel says we are guilty we got what we deserve you are right we were wrong we sin we have some earth I can be of sin he committed iniquity we have done wickedly rebelled even by departing for your present your judgments for six new Hadley heeded your servants the prophets who spoke in your name to our kings and princes were fathers and all the people the land old Lord righteousness belongs to you but to us shame of faith as it is this day to the June at the habit of Jerusalem and all Israel those near those are often all the countries which were driven and because of the other faithless which they had committed against you Daniel say while is me why are we here know is that I don't have asked that question your word says that I grew up listening to it and I've seen it come true in my life Lord we have sent it was another interesting side note not once in the book of Daniel doesn't record Daniel doing anything wrong you'll never find one sin recorded in Daniel did not let Satan he never said in his life I'm not vital basically all that said but nowhere in the record of Daniel in fact his enemies try to find something to pin on him and Daniel chapter six the prominent lines in a good unity the corrupt were negligent in it was never late to work he was never rude he never cheated on a second good guy yet when he looks at the spiritual condition of his people he counts himself as part of them he says Lord we have sent it on all of us you are good God we are wicked people we got we serve he wasn't he wasn't he was just simply confessing sin of his people now I want to interject something here as we go to a physical anniversary readers don't have time to read the whole prayer but it's a beautiful passage but basically Daniel chapter nine the first half is nothing more than a prayer of confession Daniel said I look to the word of God I've looked at the condition of our people and Lord you are right we were wrong we stand and were done and now verse nineteen the skipped out of the end of out of his prayer he cries out what is the ethical old Lord here all Lord forgive all Lord listen and act do not delay for whose sake for your own sake my God for your city and your people are call by your name is Lord we don't deserve it but to bring glory to your name Lord fulfilled his promise to Daniel 's knots seeking anything but the glory of the Lord then something happens but before we get into the something happens that are working near where they can join down Hebrew language Lane which are not Hebrew scholar and so this won't take very long at all but there's a couple of important terms I want you to see as they relate to our study to the word vision VIS island vision is just about of English provision that we find in Daniel eight and Daniel nine upwards then Chapter nine there is not meant to be a new vision but he uses the word vision to refer back to what occurred and then of chapter eight okay but the word vision that we find in Daniel eight and nine actually comes from two different Hebrew words so they are two different Hebrew words and when the English translators and scholars put this into our language they put both of those words into one term that we call vision but basically what we have there are two different words for vision than in English are just called vision that those words are the first one is Hades on AJ 's CEO in a Jay-Z Lynn Hayes on the second one is narrow in as an Mary in a R E H NARA haters on and there a wire we bring this out in the middle of the study about Daniel 's prayer because it's about who did important I will you will you need to face what's coming next now haters on bit of an excellent refers to the in higher vision so when Daniel speaks of the Hanes on he thought that the entire visionary experience from start to finish the array of a goat sequence of events the whole visionary experience the entire thing we talk about that that's what verb that he uses over the noun that he uses it Hazel Hayes on reverse of the entire vision while they arrived refers only to a portion or a part of the vision and again this is good to be important for just a moment but please understand when he said hey fundies talk but the whole big overarching experience of being in vision we talk about Mira there's one particular aspect or portion or part of the bigger vision that he has in mind okay he's on an era that easily remembered Hayes on and Mary we could support okay I'll take your silence to be gallant rejoined OPEC will now let's get going again is not now verse twenty while I was speaking praying and confessing my sins in the sin of my people Israel and presenting my supplication of the Lord my God for the holy for the holy mountain of God yes while I was speaking in prayer the man who Gabriel doth a private have we seen Gabriel before where Chapter eight he was the interpreter for Daniel chapter eight right Gabriel comes up and he mentions a specific while I was speaking in prayer the man Gabriel who I have seen in the vision at the beginning being called to swat flies swiftly reached me about the time of the evening offering the interesting front of raping caused this life quickly it's almost like he was launched to shoot me was thrown out there you sent on a mission he was called to go out and race me about the time of the evening offering and he informed me and talk with me and said O Daniel I have now come forth to give you skilled to what what's the thing Daniel didn't do with the end of Daniel eight understand now so far again in chapter nine it has there been a vision no so nothing in Daniel chapter nine can he be referring to because there has been no vision to interpret no mystery to understand he's just been praying right and goes on any informing in verse twenty two I'm talking the event oh Daniel have now come for to give you skill to understand verse twenty three I love the sequence of this notice is at the beginning of your supplications so as soon as you open your mouth to pray the command that went out and I have come to tell you notice that it's almost like Gabriel wanted a child but wait wait wait for it wait for it can affect brain is like go he she comes in swiftly by the time he starts his prayer he fit in before he ends his prayer he arrives good lesson for spot if you call out to the Lord it doesn't take long for help to come in the moment of its weekly basis lines with the giver for the beginning of your supplications of the command without I've come to tell you for you are greatly below is for this is the matter and understand the vision okay now let's look at verses twenty six there was not yet good understand of the vision now question what vision is he talking at the vision of Daniel chapter nine know anyone very very good reason he is not talking about the vision of Daniel chapter nine there is no vision of Daniel chapter nine there's nothing to interpret and so he's come to give understanding about the vision the only one he could be referring to is the only one he hasn't understood which is one from Daniel chapter eight on a very clear Daniel eight and chapter nine work together like hand in glove they must not here is how he explains what he did not understand before verse twenty four seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city that's what he was praying for your people for your holy city right to finish transgression apparently the time in exile Babylon didn't finish the transgression is still wicked Daniel admits it right he says that looks seventy weeks are determined for you and your people to finish transgression to make in and of sins to make reconciliation for iniquity to bring in everlasting righteousness to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy now that's interesting let's now go back to Daniel chapter eight why do we talk about what the as far as the sermon nine verse twenty one was all along right or is there is taken right from her notes while I was speaking in prayer the man Gabriel whom I'd seen them in the vision and of course with the Hebrew word their provision hands-on that means the vision experience the whole thing the big picture at the beginning being hard to swat flies swiftly reached me about the time of the evening offering and he informed me and talk with me and said O Daniel I have now come forth to give you skill to understand now again let's think about it logically was there were there things about the vision of Daniel chapter eight that he already understood yes you are been told very specifically the diversion Greece hi my name is Gabriel I think everything he knows except for one part of the vision he does not understand the skip going verse twenty three at the beginning of your supplications the command went out and I have come to tell you for your greatly beloved therefore consider the matter and understand the NARA NARA he has not come to give them understanding about and everything about the last vision most of that he already had he's come to give them understanding of one particular portion of the vision in which portion of that for that list go back and we got them right there are notes to Daniel chapter eight Jenna Chapter eight in verse one the whole thing starts off the previous chapter by saying in the third year reign of King Bell Shatzer a vision that is at Hayes on the big picture appeared to me to meet Daniel after the one that appeared to be the first time that reference back further today and chapter seven I saw English that is the experience of being vision Hazel and so it happened while the look and I was in the solution on the fidelity of the property will and I thought in the nation as Hayes on that I was by the river when you start into the vision he thought but you know the vision the big picture vision 's Haven on Avon Avon Avon chapter eight verse twenty six and the vision of the evenings and mornings which was told is true and when you write makes reference to the vision of the evenings and mornings he no longer uses the term Hayes on uses the term may arrive in the vicinity of Fort therefore seal up the vision that the whole thing feel the whole thing up the haze on seal up the vision for it refers many days the future and I Daniel fainted and was sick for days and afterwards I rose and what about the king 's business I was astonished by the wealthiest on the spot the vision but which Hebrew word for vision is there merit the little parts he was not astonished and miss understanding the whole thing there is only one part that he did not understand and it names it in Hebrew very specific reports of vision of the evenings and mornings the two thousand three hundred days or years that what he did not understand so then we go to Daniel chapter nine we go back to verse twenty three Gabriel says at the beginning of your supplications the command without an I have come to tell you for your greatly beloved therefore consider the matter and understand the what they are rather Asian whatever he has come to explain to Daniel is an answer to twenty three hundred a portion of the end of chapter eight okay soon Daniel chapter and nine the answer whatever he gets indented seven nine is a direct answer to what he did not understand about Daniel chapter eight the only party didn't understand was the matter with a vision of the two thousand three hundred days sober while he held down the famous interviews about data chapter eight was the two thousand three hundred days and now he's getting the answer to that and what he's about to reveal are we all on the same page we continue to make this patent the clear record your notes Gabriel hasn't not come to give a new vision but an explanation of the previous vision and no new information here no new vision at least but an explanation of the previous vision so the answer to the time prophecy of Daniel eight is the time prophecy of Daniel A nothing about this the thing and Daniel a bit he did not understand was the two thousand three hundred days or in literal time years two thousand three hundred years I don't understand that and the answer is given is another time prophecy the thing you didn't understand about talk properly I will thought with another time props to have to walk through Daniel chapter nine understanding of chapter eight so let's go back to the other side of our worksheet and see what it says here again verse twenty four Daniel chapter nine seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city to finish transgression to make an end of sins make reconciliation for iniquity to bring in everlasting righteousness seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most he says you and your people have seventy weeks determine Miller breakdown two things there first of all the time determined mistranslated English determined countrymen Hebrew word the closest my American folks honking saying in his talk fact that it doesn't sound pretty but it's nice of your defendant English barley can't talk but it probably fell nicely guttural but I'm not so you get English Qatar the thing about this term determined to talk is that in the entire Bible the only time that particular term is ever used is right there in Daniel chapter nine verse twenty four seventy weeks are determined now though the Bible doesn't use that term other literature of the same time other Hebrew extra biblical sources do you use that term and its use as well it needs to cut off more like a butcher or amputee with the almost automatic poetic cutting something dissecting taking a smaller piece from the larger body day and this is important because Daniel they just been wrestling with a big time prophecy two thousand three hundred years and now he says seventy weeks are caught off the question is cut off from what they needed understand the whole purpose of incoming and Daniel nine is to help him understand Daniel eight during the two thousand three hundred years the methods on properties that look to seventy weeks that are determined to cut off amputated from that larger piece and now that we understand that simple principle that in profits and prophetic time I J is equal to a literal time of a year and so in prophecy a day will a literal year so if it's positive it was a seventy day prophecy they are easy to interpret it would be a seventy year fulfillment right but is not a seventy day prophecy of the seventy weeks prophecy so instead of just your multiplex after publication factor being why now your multiplication factor is seven Seaview seventy times seven by the way I never heard seventy times seven somewhere in the Scripture before how often how many times are you forgive is fascinating seventy times seven what did you think Jesus is pulled up that number how long should I give my people to be forgiven seventy times but here Daniel receives this message of seventy weeks which translated into literal time is four hundred and ninety years are cut off from the two thousand three hundred year prophecy you've just been given so let's continue on this time is to fill seal up vision and prophecy to anoint the most holy with Lucas and New Testament fulfillment of that very briefly Luke chapter four page nine ninety five in your pew Bibles of chapter four thirty verse eighteen chapter four in verse eighteen page nine ninety five in your pew Bible Jesus stands up at the very beginning of his ministry he goes to the church of Nazareth where he was raised the synagogue there any stanza parades from the scroll of the prophet Isaiah and says these words verse eighteen the Spirit of the Lord is upon home me because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor he is sent me to heal the brokenhearted to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind and to set at liberty those who are oppressed to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord and then what is his name verse twenty then he closed the book gave it back to the attendant and sat down in the eyes of all of whom all of them who were in the synagogue were fixed on him and what is he saying I like you read Scripture and have only simple application verse twenty one and he began to say to them today this Scripture is what fulfilled in your hearing to seal up vision and prophecy Jesus comes longest of all those Old Testament passages about the one who was coming I and it were to see very clearly be these four hundred and ninety years are a time looking forward to the coming of the Jewish Messiah and got four hundred and ninety years to get their house in order to finish transgression to put it in the said seal up vision and prophecy with the coming of Jesus it was unsafe to anoint the most holy Chapter three when was Jesus anointed for his ministry Matthew chapter three page nine thirty seven after three and verse sixteen it says here when he had been what baptized Jesus came up immediately from the water and behold the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dog and alighting upon him and suddenly a voice came from heaven thing is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased by the way that acts chapter ten if you look over there very quickly in reviewing the life of Jesus after he departed for heaven the witness of the disciples about Jesus ministry page ten sixty three acts chapter ten starting with verse thirty six notice what is said of Jesus the word which God said to the children of Israel preaching peace through Jesus Christ he is Lord of all that you would know which was proclaimed throughout all Judea and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with what the Holy Spirit Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit and with prayer who went about doing good and healing all who are oppressed by the devil for God was with him when was Jesus anointed for his ministry at his baptism by the Holy Spirit himself so Jesus is anointed in of course he is the most holy is the high priest he is the culmination of all those prophecies now go back and ended up not more detail is given Daniel chapter nine verse twenty five starts on one thing know therefore and understand the Bentley whenever he's about the state he once dangled to do to both know and to understand of course what was over the missing before understanding this is the linchpin to help them understand and know therefore and understand that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there shall be seven weeks and sixty two weeks the street shall be built again in the wall even in troublesome times so notice now what we have that we did not have in Daniel chapter eight we have ourselves a starting point right and if the piece of the puzzle he was missing in Daniel chapter eight was the starting point in human duration in you the culmination it is it no wonder things started it was at that point of angels that will seal it up you're done so now Gabriel comes back the one from the earlier vision he said I've come to make you understand the twenty three hundred days that NARA of the evenings and mornings and here's the key know and understand from and the message when he said from Daniel 's ears perked up it comes from the issuing of the decree from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem okay so that's our starting point but not notice with the ending point of this new little fun prophecy is unfilled who Messiah prints shall be seven weeks and sixty two weeks the street should be built again in the wall even in troublesome time now go back to page four hundred and fifty in your Bibles the book of Ezra Ezra Chapter seven we can actually read the command that was given that fulfill this prophecy the Daniel was written given here Ezra Nehemiah Esther Job right now package of books there is having difficulty with page four fifty Ezra chapter seven start with verse twelve we can actually read it the decree itself passing horse was given by Artaxerxes who by the way was a Persian King and let's just throw this and let it be one of the why wasn't the vision of Daniel chapter eight of RAM in the goat why didn't start with Babylon often you will you will Babylon was basically over well except the provinces still had twelve more years to go when it was written is closer to done but it wasn't like that it within the day within the week within a month of year it was still the twelve more years what the reason is because the focus on Daniel Chapter nine is the twenty three hundred days that will convince the cleansing of the sanctuary and the beginning of that three hundred day prophecy does not start in Avalon it starts in Persia under the roof the direction of Artaxerxes look here as a happy seven first twelve Artaxerxes king of kings to as the priest describe the law of the God of heaven piece per a perfect feeds and so forth I love that the really great perfect PC no and whatnot etc. blah blah first thirteen to get the good stuff I issue a degree that all those of the people of Israel and the priests and Levites in my realm who volunteered to go up to Jerusalem may go with you anybody who wants to go and go now reporting and whereas you are being sent by the king and his seven counselors to inquire concerning Judah and Jerusalem with regard to the law of your God which is in your hand as verse fifteen there was apparently there was legally easy even back in those days and whereas you are to carry the silver and gold which the king and his counselors have freely offered to the God of Israel whose dwelling is in Jerusalem the notice is not just you go for able to give you money it would be great I would love to get a letter like this from the government but was going to and whereas all the silver and gold you may find in all the province of Babylon along with it the free will offering the people and the priests are to be freely offered for the house of their God in Jerusalem now therefore I love this for now therefore be careful to buy with this money holes rams and lands with their grain offerings and their drink offerings and offer them on the altar of the house of your God in Jerusalem verse eighteen can do and whatever seems good to you and your brother and to do with the rest of the silver and the gold do it according to will your God anything that keep the change anything access that's for you between you and the Lord which will also be articles that are given to you for the service of the house of your God deliver in full before the God of Jerusalem and whatever more may be needed for the house of your God you may have occasion to provide paperwork from the kings treasury and even I and I even I Artaxerxes the king issue a decree to all the treasures when the region beyond the river and that that whatever as with the priest the scribe of the law of God of heaven may reap why are you let it be done diligently to one hundred talents of silver one hundred cores of wheat a hundred baths of wine one hundred bath of oil and salt without prescribed limit whatever is committed by the God of heaven to be diligent begun for the house of God of heaven for why should there be wrath against the realm of the king and his and he goes on it goes on and on talk about by the way you don't have to pay taxes you can take our money spend it on anything unique about the Lord editors execute yourself that's a pretty nice emancipation proclamation so we not only let the people go but he gave them provision to do what God 's command had said would be done to rebuild Jerusalem the walls right to reestablish the sanctuary services to get Israel back on its feet like it used to be before it was in captivity episode four to the right seven pages go to page four fifty seven and we drink we find in Nehemiah the the building of the wall course Nehemiah Street should be guilty get billed again in the wall even in troublesome times we could find the fulfillment of this in Nehemiah chapter four it was not smooth sailing for those people even though they had all those provisions apparently they were slack in their work Nehemiah comes along and rally the people who work but I want to show you how not everything was peace and safety whether building a wall in verse seventeen records records those who built on the wall and those that carry burdens loaded themselves so that with one hand they work at construction and with the other held a weapon privacy have a trowel to work in one any of the sword to defend the other and our shields of the you have a weapon of war in one and a weapon of work in the other hand a the first taking every one of the builders had his sword girded his side as he builds and the one who sounded the trumpet was beside me it seems pretty clear that all the things of God outlined about their vision that decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem was given and that as a specific date which is the year for fifty seven BC the issue to restore and rebuild Jerusalem as a little chart at the top outlines that Artaxerxes take all the money you need do whatever you need to do to create occurred in four fifty seven BC Jerusalem was rebuilt roughly into four oh eight others in like a definite time will one day was built in the next that anyone that wasn't built next it was but by four oh eight BC Jerusalem is rebuilt which happens to be the first week or forty nine years of that are seven weeks of the prophecy within sixty two weeks beyond that what we have now with her back to the Bible then in chapter nine Dennis Apennine in fact we haven't just for the sake of expedience right there in your worksheet then in chapter nine verse twenty six and after the sixty two weeks but is this the sixty two the cannot seven that's the sixty ninth week for sixty two plus seven to sixty nine after the sixty two weeks Messiah shall be what never holding is waiting at the Messiah right of the Sawyer Prince is going to come but really what happened to amusement of the federal and notices were not for whom himself not because of anything he had done because of stuff we shall confirm a covenant with many for one week but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering so the last week of the four hundred and ninety year time prophecy was about Jesus and his ministry on the server it begins by the way to go from four fifty seven BC and count out sixty two weeks prophetically or four hundred and thirty four years of on-site because sixty to sixty nine on site prophetic weeks four hundred and eighty three literally years you happen to come to the year twenty seven eighty and is one crucial spiritual event that happened in the year twenty seven eighty that was the baptism of Jesus when he was anointed to be God 's representative on the server so that begins the baptism of Jesus begins that last week of the four hundred and ninety your prophecy now notice that in the middle of the week know what the halfway point of seven three and a half three and a half years into that final week he shall be according to Scripture cut off but not for worst three and a half years after his baptism Jesus was cut off from the living by his execution on the cross of Calvary but it was not for himself missile should be cut off but not for himself in second Corinthians and Isaiah chapter fifty three it tells us all we like sheep have gone astray but the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of home us all and by his stripes we argue Corinthians chapter five explained with Jesus on the cross became then forth God made him who knew no sin to be sin for us that's what happened in A.D. thirty one or three and a half years into the final week of that four hundred ninety your prophecy in the middle of the week is bringing into sacrifice and offering the course John and declare Jesus lease on his baptism he declared them to be the what Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world and when Jesus died on the cross as Paul said he was our Passover lamb he fulfilled those visions and prophecies about the coming Messiah by being cut off not for himself but for his people and inventors ever nine continues verse twenty six again and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary violated Jesus ever warned of the coming destruction of Jerusalem yes he did defeated the individual be with a flood until the end of the war desolation 's are determined in on the wing of abomination shall be one who makes desolate even until the consummation which is determined support out on the desolate that sounds a little bit of a confusing language here but let's be clear the people of the prince who is to come is speaking about the people of Rome and they're the ones who destroyed Jerusalem they're the ones who actually accomplished what both Daniel and then Jesus later on would say was going to happen that's what Paul is referring to an second Thessalonians chapter two when he was talking at the antichrist power the little horn but until halftime is revealed there's one restraining is full of element that is referenced to in real Rome of Daniel chapter two seven and the little horn of Daniel chapter eight shall destroy the city mistakes rated exactly what Jesus taught not Matthew chapter twenty four this is the abominations shall be one abomination 's shall be one who makes desolate and of course what's fascinating is Matthew chapter twenty four versus fifteen and sixteen Jesus alludes directly to Daniel chapter nine when he says in verse fifteen of Matthew chapter twenty four at any page nine sixty and your pew Bible therefore when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet so this is a clear reference to death chapter nine specifically standing in the holy place and he says whoever reads let him understand Jesus as the fun little trivia fact in his entire ministry only specifically encourage the horse he want you to read all of Scripture yes the problem buddy specifically when you talk about the destruction of Jerusalem and its parallel event at the end of time the destruction of the world in days he says read and understand what book of the Bible Daniel said when you see that you understand he reads let him understand the Marines let them understand now it's come to the conclusion of this the title of life message was Jesus is the answer but first this established what was the question the question was when will the starting point B of the two thousand three hundred years will usher in the judgment with the day of atonement people of God to be invented upgraded not know but invented chapter nine Gabriel returns and felt them know and understand and he gives them another time prophecy but he says this time prophecy the four hundred and ninety years or prophetically seventy weeks are cut off from that larger two thousand three hundred years and he gives you a starting point is the starting point of Daniel chapter eight is the same starting point of Daniel chapter nine is just the first four hundred and ninety years culminate with the ministry of Jesus Christ by the way I one thing I love about this notice is that in the middle of the last week that means there's three and a half years when Jesus got up at the property property extends for another three and a half years until thirty four A.D. which just happens to be the date when Stephen stood up defended the ministry of Jesus with their future and and gave them one last opportunity to repent and of course they close their ears yelled at him with top of their lungs and stoned him to death and with that they sealed forever this idea of Israel being a special people separate from the world 's messengers what is the minimum now my gospel is going to the world was fascinated out that it wasn't even the death of Jesus they did it it was their rejection of his messenger when he said even though Jesus has died he still wants to forgive powerful thought to me but there we see on the little chart that the beginning of both the seventy weeks prophecy and the two thousand three hundred year prophecy are the same date for fifty seven BC the ministry of Jesus and the events surrounding his first coming are the opening part of this much longer prophecy the two thousand three years begins with Jesus and of course the ending is the judgment of Jesus and his eventual return at the end of that judgment so it's nothing about this time prophecy it begins all about Jesus in his first coming and it concludes all about Jesus and his final work as high priest and his second coming you'll come with his reward with us thus by the way conclusion of our tonight study is very simple you go from four fifty seven BC and you go forward two thousand three hundred years and you know when the beginning of that judgment scene in heaven started the two thousand three hundred years from four fifty seven BC brings us right to the year eighteen forty four eighty in the year eighteen forty four A.D. Jesus Christ did not return to the earth as many people at that time expected him to do but instead went into the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary to begin what had been prophesied so long before the cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary the day of atonement began arriving on time in fulfillment of Daniel 's seven eight and nine and the answer to the conundrum of Daniel was Jesus Jesus in his first coming starts the whole thing off and Jesus preparing for his second coming is the close of the message the twenty three hundred days is all about Jesus his first coming his intercession of priest and his eventual second coming we are living in a time looking which tells me brothers and sisters if the heavenly sanctuary began being the cleansing process that day put home and final judgment began in eighteen forty four are we living before or after that time after that time we are living in the day of judgment the hour of his judgment friends has come where living in it now praise the Lord that you remember in the typical service even on the most holy place they ministry the day of atonement there was the daily sacrifice for six percent anything that you want to bring to Jesus as your advocate as your intercessor as your mediator bring it to Jesus the door still open but he's doing more than simply forgiving sins brothers and sisters he wants to block the whole thing out and soon you can become Andrew 's reward is with them to give to each one according to his works does this make sense Daniel seven look forward to a day of judgment before Jesus returns Daniel eight prophesied the timing of the beginning of it but even have a starting point Daniel chapter nine gives the beginning of that starting point and it begins with the ministry of Jesus here on earth and he concludes with the final ministry of Jesus in heaven friends prophecy is not about beef is not about terrors is not about the enemies of Christ it's about Jesus Christ from beginning to end I hope we see that patently clear directly from the pages of Scripture once again has made since the praise God for that without hats for WordPress heavily father thank you so so much for being a God gives us information and communicates through your word messages we need to know and understand Laura Ganassi from the surface what do you guys for buried treasure but Lord you promised it to anyone who lacks wisdom you will give liberally freely similarly admitting we do not know in our own wisdom the deep mysteries of God but we trust that your word is true that the Holy Spirit can still guide and direct and that there is a message for us living today Lord help us to understand that Jesus is not only our sacrifice on the cross in our mediator in the courts of heaven but now he is our advocate the most holy place and Lord during this time of judgment let each one of us afflict our souls and anything that would stand between us and our Savior is given O Jesus so that when he returned we handle this world like were going over this is our prayer is a media was brought by audio errors or a website dedicated to spreading God 's word through reading sermon audio and much more I would like to know more about our universe is more assertive in the www. audio tours .org
