This starts today's book was written in 1894 I believe, by the head of criminal investigation at Scotland Yard was a math whiz was really is a Mr. Robert Anderson. He was so intrigued by Daniel.
He put pen to paper and figured out the dates and the coming of Jesus into Jerusalem and here it is. He figured that 483 years tabulated out by day is exactly 173,880 days so he counted from March 14 445 BC and Canada hundred and 73,880 days use a calendar made variations for repairs, etc. and came up with the end of the 483 years or hundred and 73,880 days with it a very interesting date April 6 32 A.D., which happened to be in the Jewish calendar the 10th of Nisan, the 10th of Nisan. Many of you now know from our previous Bible studies was the day the Jews every year selected the Lamb who would be sacrificed on the 14th day of Nisan, the Passover and they brought the Lamb home what happened on the 10th of Nisan. What happened April 6 32 A.D. interesting Jesus trusted the Mount of olives and looked over the city of Jerusalem and said to his disciples, going to the village.
Next you and get a donkey kid never done this before. He always told his followers after he did a miracle and they said you're the wonder of the son of God in a size that don't tell anybody keep it a secret harbor that the just got healed Kelly, but this is the only time he publicly allowed and that commanded a public presentation into the city of Jerusalem fulfilling Zechariah chapter 9 verse nine behold your king comes to you lowly on the full of a donkey and they saw him coming into the second is that hosanna hosanna you know the story, but something unusual happened as he nears the city. He says something and and here's what I want you to grasp not only did Daniel get the exact day when the Messiah would come beside the Prince was even more astonishing is Jesus held the Jews responsible to know the date know therefore and understand he he held them accountable in Luke chapter 19 go down to verse 41. If you have your Bible open oral dissuaded to now as he drew near, that is driven near the city. He saw the city and he wept over it, saying if you had known, even you watch this, especially in this your day.
The things that make for your peace. But now they are hidden from your eyes for the days will come upon you when your enemies that's the Romans will build an embankment around you around you and close you and in every side happened in 70 A.D. and level you and your children within you to the ground and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation. The Romans are going to destroy your city because you should've known this day this time of your visitation, what day.173,880th day, the 480 30 year as Robert Anderson calculated it to the very day now.
Verse 26 Daniel nine. After the 62 weeks Messiah shall be cut off. I mentioned that means to kill to execute but not for himself. Jesus came into Jerusalem, the Lamb was selected for the nation on the 10th of Nisan, the Lamb of God which takes away the sins of the world on Passover. He was sacrificing was killed. He was cut off, but not for himself.
It was an atoning sacrifice Isaiah 52 so he will sprinkle many nations, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it will be with a flood till the end of the war desolation's are determined. Verse 27 then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. That's the missing seven or 69 weeks.
Introduced in verse 27 is the final piece of the puzzle. The final seven years. Notice it says in verse 27 he shall confirm a covenant he who back to verse 26 where it says, and the people of the prince who is to come. The people of the prince was a calm that was the Romans the Romans destroyed the city Jesus predicted historically that happened to you yet have a gold silver bronze, iron, the Roman Empire, the Roman Empire subjugated the Jews level, Jerusalem destroyed it and is Jesus predicted historically that happened, but he says he will confirm a covenant with many for one week nonstop. There are some else I gave you the hundred 73,880 days right for the 83 years tabulated out if you go home. Some of you will get several calculators under phones and are going to try to tap all this out to be wrong.
You could you say that you probably can come up with not 173,880 days your computer. If you do the math for the years and to come up with 176,295 days and the reason you're wrong with that number is because you are calculating based on the Julian calendar on our calendar the Western calendar. You need to calculate on the Babylonian calendar as well as Jewish calendar was a calendar 360 days because we track our calendar.
According to the Sunday tracking according to the moon so fair warning. Now you gonna have so verse 27 he will confirm the covenant with many for one week. So seven years covenant, but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering sound like the guy in chapter 8 and on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate. This is yet future 69 weeks of happened. Jesus died on the cross, ending the 483 years, but is 490 years. There's still one week. Is it within that just happened right after Jesus died on the counter another seven years. No, we don't because what has to happen at the end of 490 years back to verse 24 to clear that up. Finish the transgression make an end of sending reconciliation for iniquity bring in everlasting righteousness seal up vision and prophecy anoint the most holy. That hasn't happened.
So there's a hiatus between 69 as suggested in the text and the 70th week.
It didn't happen seven years after Jesus death, it will happen after a 70 year.
Coming sometime in the future. Prior to Jesus returns is a bona fide weaver that well you have to think of what Jesus said Jesus spoke about the abomination of desolation as something that had not yet happened. Something that was in the future or what happened with NTFS the fourth and take his epiphanies put that statue of Zeus, etc. but I said that was a historic template for something much greater.
So listen to the words of Jesus. Matthew 24 and when you see that's future from Jesus on work when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place you were in Jerusalem get out of town get out of Dodge. So he spoken of as something yet future. What that means is there's been a great parentheses between week 69 a week 70 for 2000 years.
Okay chapter 10 of Daniel.
When I finish the book.
Daniel 10 is an introduction to chapter 11 and 12 which finishes out the book. It is essentially a lengthy set of processes from Darius the Mead to NTFS the fourth rehashed again. But in more detail all the way to the second coming. Look at chapter 10 verse two and three this what happens to Daniel as this revelation comes semi-mourned three full weeks. I ate no pleasant food no meat no wine came in the minor was totally depressed. He lost his appetite as God revealed to him the future desolation's in pain and store for his own people. The Jewish people. In other words, Xander you think the captivity was bad to get far worse in the future.
While Daniel as we go on sees a vision of an angel.
Chapter 10 verse 12 he said to me, Daniel, do not fear for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come because of your work that's interesting in Daniel nine Daniel Dineen finishes prayer and there was the angel right Gabriel to announce the coming Messiah.
By the way Gabriel is the announced announcing angel he announced to Daniel the plan of the future, including the Messiah, and who showed up to Mary and Joseph.
The angel Gabriel. He's this special special messenger being so that happened as soon as he started praying the angel came here as soon as he started praying. This angel was dispatched because of your words verse 13 but but the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me 21 days, and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to my help, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia were getting a little bit of insight briefly 30,000 you were looking out of a plane seeing the satanic battlefield. It talks about here.
The prince of the kingdom of Persia. Now we know who the kings of the kingdom of Persia were it was King Darius and King Cyrus. They were joint kings of this coalition, who was the prince? Who is the prince well do you remember back in Ezekiel 28 judgment pronounced on tire take a lamentation against the king of Tyre. Remember that and then midway in the chapter take a lamentation against the Prince of Tyre and it's as you were in the garden of Eden. So obviously that's not any kind of a human that was living at that time there was some being that was in the garden of Eden was the anointed cherub that covers likewise here we know who the kings are the prince seems to be some demonic entity behind the political scenes of Medo Persian. Why is it interesting because you're getting a behind the curtain view behind the political curtain. If you wonder why politics is so goofed up. Maybe this will shed a little bit of light on. I believe there are demonic entities over areas over all realms governors, kings and princes, prime ministers and the like.
When we hear this, the prince of Persia, and we think of a demonic demonic entity, my mind starts thinking. Wonder what the prince of light San Francisco. It's all or Las Vegas or Holly weird, pretty powerful, pretty strong. I'm guessing chapter 1145 verses in this chapter and I'm knocking to go into detail of the skin of some a couple things out before we close the book, I one time outline. This chapter with incredible detail and put it on a nap by 11 sheet and pass it out to the whole church so they would have it as a memorial.
Some of you may have of you probably get it online but essentially in them. In chapter 11 we have in 30 so we have 45 verses 35 verses were passed the that the last few verses are unfulfilled. So we have all future to Daniel to us today, 35 have been fulfilled. The last section, little section is yet future unfulfilled.
Forget this in 35 verses there are 135 fulfilled prophecies amazing detail the best way to understand this chapter is through the lens. We've already been given in chapter 9. Two Daniel 70 weeks 69 weeks and then the last one.
The 70th week seven years. The tribulation period. Revelations is seven years 69 and seven. The first 35 verses describe Israel in conflict during the first 69 years past tense. The last set of verses, verse 36 verse 45 describe Israel in conflict during the 70th week of Daniel. The last seven years when it's not Antiochus epiphanies is now the antichrist takes us to chapter 12. At that time we seen Gabriel at that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people, and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation. Just think of all the bad times in history.
This is worse. This is worse if you wonder how bad could it ever get read Revelation beginning in chapter 6.
Keep following your sale that is going to get. Never before has the world experience would Revelation that section details and here we get it Col. nutshell form.
There will be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time and at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book, so this is just before the end Israel will be persecuted again. Paul says in Romans all Israel will be saved, if you want to know how their saved can read those sections of Revelation. You can read Zechariah chapter 12 and I will give you the answer. I love those is Michael's Michael will stand up to angels named in the Bible we get both of them here in the section called Daniel we get Gabriel that's the announcing angel and we get Michael. He's the great defender of the Jewish people. If you want another reference of him. Goto Revelation chapter 12 were Michael is fighting the demonic hordes in that heavenly battle verse two and many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and pausing there because is the very first mention in all of Scripture of everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever key verse if you want to be wise is your hand that's good as most of you, the world will tell you how to be wise. There is a wisdom in the conventional wisdom of this world there's a wisdom. They say you must have to be worldly wise you want to be biblically wise. This is how the Bible says in Proverbs 11 he who wins souls is wise. The measuring stick for wisdom. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. Next time where freedom celebration after the fireworks don't go home stay glued to your seat. Let everybody else go. Just keep looking up because after those bottle rockets and that music and smoke clears and those beautiful grand finale is going to Skip looking up and you'll see something that was there before the night began before your life began. Stars, some people want to just have a life. It's like a lot of flair and boom bang like a firework but if your wives if you want to shine the forever.
Make it your goal in life to bring with you to heaven as many people as you can.
The height of selfishness is a Christian content to go to heaven alone. You want to be wise, bring people with verse four but you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase its always exciting to study prophecy and as I mentioned when I worked in hospitals in Westminster California and orange California orange County Medical Center. I am, I loved showing to the skeptics.
The book of Daniel and taking them through some of these profits because we get a few birds eye view that is different from an historical view so let's close with this analogy, it's parade dates 4 July were in our our our town. Maybe the town you grow up.
And if you're thinking of your Fourth of July parade or your here and in your there in the floats come by. First of all the clowns with bicycles come by and some of you. I love those clowns and bicycles other than the spooky clowns, ride bicycles get a matter so the clowns with bicycles go by after that the high school Queen flow comes by and she waves an Anda may oral float is way down. At the beginning and hasn't yet gotten to you yet one of your friends comes in after the parade is begun in says man I want to see the clowns on bicycles at RRR art have become yet you say well yes they have they've already passed that they've Artie gone but but if you go ahead you can see what's past somebody else comes and says man I want to see the may oral float but but I got a leave in five minutes you say. Well, that hasn't come yet but if you if you go all the way to the beginning, you'll be able to see it. But if you get up in a blimp and you go hundreds of feet above that parade site.
You look down you can see the may oral float. The creepy clowns on the bicycles high school Queen and see all those floats at one time the vantage point of biblical prophecy. Let's God's people see that birds eye at 30,000 feet per keep going. All of world history, it might make you a little sick to your stomach as you read Revelation 6 through 19 to see what's coming like it may.
Daniel physically sick but keep reading to the coming of the Messiah at the end were little and righteousness prevails on their get pretty excited you'll get the entire view of Scripture in one fell swoop.
