  • Dr. Jeremiah: The book of Daniel
  • 00:04:45.258 --> 00:04:46.559
  • has, up to this point, beenpretty much about the Gentiles;
  • 00:04:46.592 --> 00:04:49.896
  • and now in the ninth chapter,
  • 00:04:49.929 --> 00:04:51.764
  • Almighty God has a Wordfor his people.
  • 00:04:51.798 --> 00:04:55.501
  • Let me set the contextof the message.
  • 00:04:55.535 --> 00:04:57.737
  • Daniel has been in Babylonfor almost 70 years.
  • 00:04:57.770 --> 00:05:01.774
  • He went thereas a 14-year-old boy
  • 00:05:01.808 --> 00:05:04.110
  • as a captive and he never left.
  • 00:05:04.143 --> 00:05:06.346
  • In fact, he never did leavethe nation of Babylon.
  • 00:05:06.379 --> 00:05:08.581
  • He died in Babylon.
  • 00:05:08.614 --> 00:05:10.516
  • And the Bible says that one dayDaniel was having his devotions,
  • 00:05:10.550 --> 00:05:15.021
  • and he was reading throughthe book of Jeremiah.
  • 00:05:15.054 --> 00:05:17.790
  • And as he readthrough this book,
  • 00:05:17.824 --> 00:05:19.125
  • he came to a section of the bookthat got his attention.
  • 00:05:19.158 --> 00:05:23.096
  • And this is what he read.
  • 00:05:23.129 --> 00:05:25.231
  • "Thus says the Lord:
  • 00:05:25.264 --> 00:05:27.633
  • After seventy yearsare completed at Babylon,
  • 00:05:27.667 --> 00:05:31.270
  • I will visit you and performMy good word toward you,
  • 00:05:31.304 --> 00:05:35.475
  • and cause youto return to this place.'"
  • 00:05:35.508 --> 00:05:39.178
  • Daniel's eyes popped openwhen he read that.
  • 00:05:39.212 --> 00:05:42.248
  • Almighty God has promisedthrough Jeremiah
  • 00:05:42.281 --> 00:05:44.851
  • that when the 70-year captivityis over,
  • 00:05:44.884 --> 00:05:47.353
  • our peopleare going to be allowed
  • 00:05:47.387 --> 00:05:49.222
  • to go back to Jerusalemand rebuild their temple
  • 00:05:49.255 --> 00:05:52.024
  • and once again existas a nation in their homeland.
  • 00:05:52.058 --> 00:05:56.396
  • And as soon as Daniel read that,he went and got his calendar.
  • 00:05:56.429 --> 00:06:00.600
  • This is a little imaginationon my part,
  • 00:06:00.633 --> 00:06:02.935
  • but I believethis is what he did.
  • 00:06:02.969 --> 00:06:04.837
  • He laid his scroll downon his desk,
  • 00:06:04.871 --> 00:06:06.839
  • and he wentand got his calendar.
  • 00:06:06.873 --> 00:06:08.508
  • And he began to figurehow many years had happened
  • 00:06:08.541 --> 00:06:11.978
  • since the day they were captivein his 14th year on this earth,
  • 00:06:12.011 --> 00:06:15.448
  • and he figured it all out,
  • 00:06:15.481 --> 00:06:16.783
  • and all of a sudden,it dawned on him
  • 00:06:16.816 --> 00:06:18.684
  • that what Jeremiah was sayingin his prophecy
  • 00:06:18.718 --> 00:06:21.554
  • was about to happento his people,
  • 00:06:21.587 --> 00:06:24.090
  • that the 70 yearswas almost completed.
  • 00:06:24.123 --> 00:06:28.761
  • So, Daniel reads this prophecyfrom Jeremiah,
  • 00:06:28.795 --> 00:06:31.798
  • and the Bible says that what hedid when he read that
  • 00:06:31.831 --> 00:06:33.966
  • was he started to pray.
  • 00:06:34.000 --> 00:06:36.669
  • He got on his kneesand he began to pray.
  • 00:06:36.702 --> 00:06:38.271
  • Have you ever done that?
  • 00:06:38.304 --> 00:06:39.605
  • Read something that God saysin the Bible and then go pray
  • 00:06:39.639 --> 00:06:41.741
  • and say, "Okay, God,this is what you said,
  • 00:06:41.774 --> 00:06:43.609
  • now I want you to do this."
  • 00:06:43.643 --> 00:06:45.611
  • Do you know the Biblesays we can do that.
  • 00:06:45.645 --> 00:06:47.013
  • The Bible says if we prayanything in the will of God,
  • 00:06:47.046 --> 00:06:49.549
  • he will do it.
  • 00:06:49.582 --> 00:06:50.883
  • You know how to getall your prayers answered?
  • 00:06:50.917 --> 00:06:52.218
  • Make sure they allcome right out of the Bible.
  • 00:06:52.251 --> 00:06:54.253
  • Just go and seewhat God's promised to do,
  • 00:06:54.287 --> 00:06:56.189
  • then go tell God what hesaid he would do,
  • 00:06:56.222 --> 00:06:57.824
  • and then tell Godyou want him to do it.
  • 00:06:57.857 --> 00:07:00.226
  • That's what Daniel did,he prayed.
  • 00:07:00.259 --> 00:07:02.128
  • In fact, the early versesof the ninth chapter
  • 00:07:02.161 --> 00:07:05.031
  • is this prayer that Danielprayed before God,
  • 00:07:05.064 --> 00:07:07.667
  • and it really is a prayerof confession and repentance.
  • 00:07:07.700 --> 00:07:10.670
  • "O Lord, hear!
  • 00:07:11.304 --> 00:07:12.705
  • O Lord, forgive!
  • 00:07:12.738 --> 00:07:14.207
  • O Lord, listen and act!
  • 00:07:14.240 --> 00:07:15.908
  • And do not delayfor Your own sake, my God,
  • 00:07:15.942 --> 00:07:18.478
  • for Your city and Your peopleare called by Your name."
  • 00:07:18.511 --> 00:07:23.216
  • Daniel said, "I readwhat Jeremiah said.
  • 00:07:23.249 --> 00:07:25.751
  • I believe it, I prayed it.
  • 00:07:25.785 --> 00:07:27.153
  • We confessed our sin, now Lord,
  • 00:07:27.186 --> 00:07:28.888
  • do what you saidyou were gonna do."
  • 00:07:28.921 --> 00:07:30.923
  • And as he was finishinghis prayer,
  • 00:07:30.957 --> 00:07:33.893
  • expecting an answer,he was about to get
  • 00:07:33.926 --> 00:07:36.529
  • the biggest surpriseof his life.
  • 00:07:36.562 --> 00:07:38.865
  • For as he finished his prayer,God answered,
  • 00:07:38.898 --> 00:07:42.235
  • and he answered him in a way
  • 00:07:42.268 --> 00:07:43.569
  • he could not possiblyhave expected.
  • 00:07:43.603 --> 00:07:46.138
  • You see, Daniel was asking God
  • 00:07:46.172 --> 00:07:48.241
  • about the 490 yearsthat was in history.
  • 00:07:48.274 --> 00:07:51.444
  • "God, I want you to forgive usfor what we did."
  • 00:07:51.477 --> 00:07:53.513
  • And God said, "Okay,what I'd like to do, Daniel,
  • 00:07:53.546 --> 00:07:56.415
  • is I'd like to show youwhat I'm gonna do
  • 00:07:56.449 --> 00:07:58.351
  • for the 490 yearsin the future."
  • 00:07:58.384 --> 00:08:01.420
  • And God laid out a planfor the people of Israel
  • 00:08:01.454 --> 00:08:04.891
  • that stretchedall the way through
  • 00:08:04.924 --> 00:08:07.226
  • to the end of the kingdom age.
  • 00:08:07.260 --> 00:08:10.096
  • It's the most amazing spanof prophetic truth in the Bible.
  • 00:08:10.129 --> 00:08:14.667
  • So, Daniel prays and God says,
  • 00:08:14.700 --> 00:08:18.437
  • "I'm gonna give youa vision for the future."
  • 00:08:18.471 --> 00:08:22.375
  • Now, the prayer to Godis answered
  • 00:08:22.408 --> 00:08:24.677
  • beginning at verse 21of the ninth chapter
  • 00:08:24.710 --> 00:08:27.346
  • with God's Messengercoming to see Daniel.
  • 00:08:27.380 --> 00:08:31.350
  • Notice verse 21, "And when Iwas speaking in prayer,
  • 00:08:31.384 --> 00:08:34.987
  • Gabriel, whom I had seenin the vision at the beginning,
  • 00:08:35.021 --> 00:08:38.724
  • being caused to fly swiftly,
  • 00:08:38.758 --> 00:08:42.094
  • reached me about the timeof the evening offering."
  • 00:08:42.128 --> 00:08:45.898
  • Daniel says, "As Iwas finishing up my prayer,
  • 00:08:45.932 --> 00:08:48.167
  • it was about three o'clockin the afternoon,
  • 00:08:48.200 --> 00:08:49.835
  • which is the timeof the evening offering.
  • 00:08:49.869 --> 00:08:52.171
  • And as I was finishing upmy prayer,
  • 00:08:52.204 --> 00:08:53.706
  • God in heaven heard my prayerand he dispatched
  • 00:08:53.739 --> 00:08:56.475
  • his information angel,who is Gabriel,
  • 00:08:56.509 --> 00:08:58.945
  • all the way to this earthto bring me the answer."
  • 00:08:58.978 --> 00:09:02.715
  • He said, "I have now come forthto give you skill to understand.
  • 00:09:02.748 --> 00:09:06.619
  • At the beginningof your supplications
  • 00:09:06.652 --> 00:09:08.454
  • the command went out,
  • 00:09:08.487 --> 00:09:09.889
  • and I have come to tell you,Daniel, you are greatly loved;
  • 00:09:09.922 --> 00:09:13.392
  • therefore consider the matter,and understand the vision."
  • 00:09:13.426 --> 00:09:17.763
  • And then he began to pour out
  • 00:09:17.797 --> 00:09:20.566
  • God's wonderful planfor the Jewish people.
  • 00:09:20.600 --> 00:09:24.437
  • And the message is filledwith some intriguing terms.
  • 00:09:24.470 --> 00:09:29.175
  • It says God is going to dosomething for Daniel's people.
  • 00:09:29.208 --> 00:09:33.512
  • Verse 24, "Seventy weeksare determined by--
  • 00:09:33.546 --> 00:09:37.283
  • for your peopleand for your holy city."
  • 00:09:37.316 --> 00:09:39.518
  • In other words, God said,"I've got a plan, Daniel,
  • 00:09:39.552 --> 00:09:41.621
  • that involves 70 weeks."
  • 00:09:41.654 --> 00:09:44.590
  • Now, the word "weeks"in the Hebrew language
  • 00:09:44.624 --> 00:09:46.659
  • is a special word,it means seven.
  • 00:09:46.692 --> 00:09:49.295
  • So, let's read it that way.
  • 00:09:49.328 --> 00:09:50.896
  • "Daniel, I have a planfor you and your people
  • 00:09:50.930 --> 00:09:53.199
  • that involves 70 sevens."
  • 00:09:53.232 --> 00:09:57.269
  • So, what doesthe word seven mean?
  • 00:09:57.303 --> 00:09:59.205
  • We might say,well, 70 weeks of days.
  • 00:09:59.238 --> 00:10:01.774
  • That's not possible becausewhat God is going to explain
  • 00:10:01.807 --> 00:10:05.244
  • that's going to happenin these seventy sevens
  • 00:10:05.277 --> 00:10:07.613
  • could not possibly happenin one week.
  • 00:10:07.647 --> 00:10:10.116
  • The building of the temple,the restoration of the temple,
  • 00:10:10.149 --> 00:10:12.551
  • all of that tooka long period of time.
  • 00:10:12.585 --> 00:10:14.220
  • So, when you seethe word "seven"
  • 00:10:14.253 --> 00:10:16.088
  • in the Old Testamentin the language,
  • 00:10:16.122 --> 00:10:17.923
  • you have to go to the context
  • 00:10:17.957 --> 00:10:19.392
  • and find outwhat's really meant.
  • 00:10:19.425 --> 00:10:21.861
  • And what's really meantby the word "seven"
  • 00:10:21.894 --> 00:10:23.863
  • in the book of Daniel is
  • 00:10:23.896 --> 00:10:25.197
  • 70 sevens of years,70 weeks of years.
  • 00:10:25.231 --> 00:10:30.369
  • If you go back
  • 00:10:30.403 --> 00:10:31.704
  • to the second verseof the ninth chapter,
  • 00:10:31.737 --> 00:10:33.539
  • you notice that Danielis talking about 70 years.
  • 00:10:33.572 --> 00:10:37.343
  • Now, God says, "Daniel,I have a plan for you
  • 00:10:37.376 --> 00:10:40.246
  • that's going to take70 sevens of years to unfold.
  • 00:10:40.279 --> 00:10:46.619
  • Daniel, my plan for youand your people
  • 00:10:46.652 --> 00:10:49.255
  • goes out 490 years."
  • 00:10:49.288 --> 00:10:53.059
  • The weeks are not weeks of days,they're weeks of years,
  • 00:10:53.092 --> 00:10:57.363
  • 483 of those yearsare already past.
  • 00:10:57.396 --> 00:11:00.900
  • There's still seven yearsthat has yet to be fulfilled.
  • 00:11:00.933 --> 00:11:04.637
  • Now, there's another termthat we need to note,
  • 00:11:04.670 --> 00:11:06.906
  • and that is the term "years."
  • 00:11:06.939 --> 00:11:09.709
  • Unknown to many people,the biblical year
  • 00:11:09.742 --> 00:11:12.812
  • is not the sameas our year today.
  • 00:11:12.845 --> 00:11:15.815
  • For instance, in biblical times,
  • 00:11:15.848 --> 00:11:18.617
  • the month in the Old Testamentwas not like it is today.
  • 00:11:18.651 --> 00:11:23.022
  • The 12 monthswere always 30 days.
  • 00:11:23.055 --> 00:11:25.958
  • So, when you're gonna dothe math of the Old Testament,
  • 00:11:25.991 --> 00:11:28.227
  • you have to always usethe biblical month, 360 days,
  • 00:11:28.260 --> 00:11:31.931
  • just store that for a moment.
  • 00:11:31.964 --> 00:11:33.632
  • Now, notice what God saidhe was going to do, verse 24,
  • 00:11:33.666 --> 00:11:37.670
  • "Seventy weeks are determinedfor your people
  • 00:11:37.703 --> 00:11:41.407
  • and for your holy city."
  • 00:11:41.440 --> 00:11:44.043
  • God said that over a periodof 490 years in the future,
  • 00:11:44.076 --> 00:11:50.916
  • he had a very special thinghe wanted to do for the Jews.
  • 00:11:50.950 --> 00:11:56.122
  • And he gave Daniel six thingsthat were gonna happen
  • 00:11:56.155 --> 00:12:00.426
  • and they're all listedin this one verse.
  • 00:12:00.459 --> 00:12:02.528
  • He said to finishthe transgression,
  • 00:12:02.561 --> 00:12:04.463
  • to make an end of sins,
  • 00:12:04.497 --> 00:12:05.798
  • to make reconciliationfor iniquity,
  • 00:12:05.831 --> 00:12:07.800
  • to bring ineverlasting righteousness,
  • 00:12:07.833 --> 00:12:09.835
  • to seal up vision and prophecy,and to anoint the most holy.
  • 00:12:09.869 --> 00:12:13.472
  • "Daniel, I have a plan for youthat involves six things.
  • 00:12:13.506 --> 00:12:16.842
  • I want you to hearwhat these things are."
  • 00:12:16.876 --> 00:12:18.544
  • He said, "Daniel,there's coming a time
  • 00:12:18.577 --> 00:12:20.346
  • when transgressionwill be finished.
  • 00:12:20.379 --> 00:12:24.817
  • It comes in the future.
  • 00:12:24.850 --> 00:12:26.685
  • Sometime, Daniel,there's gonna be a time
  • 00:12:26.719 --> 00:12:28.521
  • when there will beno more transgression.
  • 00:12:28.554 --> 00:12:30.956
  • It will no longer growand flourish."
  • 00:12:30.990 --> 00:12:32.591
  • Let me ask you a question,has that ever happened?
  • 00:12:32.625 --> 00:12:35.895
  • Well, you're not very clearabout it.
  • 00:12:35.928 --> 00:12:37.229
  • But let me ask youanother question.
  • 00:12:37.263 --> 00:12:38.564
  • Is it true now?Absolutely not.
  • 00:12:38.597 --> 00:12:41.066
  • This is not a timeminus transgressions,
  • 00:12:41.100 --> 00:12:43.636
  • it's a timeof growing transgression.
  • 00:12:43.669 --> 00:12:45.304
  • We seem to be creativein transgressing.
  • 00:12:45.337 --> 00:12:48.674
  • "But Daniel,there's coming a time
  • 00:12:48.707 --> 00:12:50.009
  • for your people in the future
  • 00:12:50.042 --> 00:12:51.343
  • where transgressionwill no longer be in control."
  • 00:12:51.377 --> 00:12:54.980
  • In fact, he saysit's even better than that.
  • 00:12:55.014 --> 00:12:57.383
  • It's a time when wewill make an end of sin.
  • 00:12:57.416 --> 00:13:00.586
  • This phrase points to a timewhen sin will be eliminated,
  • 00:13:00.619 --> 00:13:03.622
  • not only in principle,but in practice.
  • 00:13:03.656 --> 00:13:06.625
  • "Daniel, there's coming a timewhen sin will no longer be
  • 00:13:06.659 --> 00:13:09.361
  • a part of the experienceof people on this earth."
  • 00:13:09.395 --> 00:13:12.698
  • Ladies and gentlemen,when is that?
  • 00:13:12.731 --> 00:13:14.600
  • That's when Jesus sets uphis kingdom on this earth.
  • 00:13:14.633 --> 00:13:17.169
  • That's what we callthe millennium.
  • 00:13:17.203 --> 00:13:18.537
  • That's the kingdom age.
  • 00:13:18.571 --> 00:13:19.872
  • There's coming a daywhen King Jesus will rule,
  • 00:13:19.905 --> 00:13:22.474
  • and transgressionwill be finished,
  • 00:13:22.508 --> 00:13:24.610
  • and sin will no longer be a partof the culture as it is today.
  • 00:13:24.643 --> 00:13:31.116
  • And then he says,and in that time,
  • 00:13:31.150 --> 00:13:32.718
  • there will be reconciliationmade for iniquity.
  • 00:13:32.751 --> 00:13:36.222
  • When was reconciliationmade for iniquity?
  • 00:13:36.255 --> 00:13:38.324
  • At the cross.
  • 00:13:38.357 --> 00:13:39.658
  • But if you know the Scripture,you know
  • 00:13:39.692 --> 00:13:41.060
  • that the Jewish peopledon't get that,
  • 00:13:41.093 --> 00:13:43.128
  • and their reconciliationwill not happen
  • 00:13:43.162 --> 00:13:45.130
  • until that future daywhen they will believe
  • 00:13:45.164 --> 00:13:47.666
  • that Jesus is the Messiahat his second coming,
  • 00:13:47.700 --> 00:13:50.169
  • and every eye will see him
  • 00:13:50.202 --> 00:13:51.704
  • and those who wounded himwill accept him
  • 00:13:51.737 --> 00:13:53.739
  • and all Israel shall be saved.
  • 00:13:53.772 --> 00:13:55.708
  • So, while the reconciliationwas paid for at the cross,
  • 00:13:55.741 --> 00:13:58.878
  • it's not gonna be realizeduntil that future day.
  • 00:13:58.911 --> 00:14:02.581
  • Notice next,it's not only a matter
  • 00:14:02.615 --> 00:14:04.516
  • of finishing the transgression,making an end of sins,
  • 00:14:04.550 --> 00:14:08.053
  • time of reconciliationfor iniquity,
  • 00:14:08.087 --> 00:14:10.389
  • but it's a timeof everlasting righteousness.
  • 00:14:10.422 --> 00:14:13.926
  • The Bible says, "Daniel,there's coming a time
  • 00:14:13.959 --> 00:14:16.495
  • when righteousness will reign,everlasting righteousness.
  • 00:14:16.528 --> 00:14:20.799
  • It will rule and reignon this earth."
  • 00:14:20.833 --> 00:14:23.035
  • Oh, for such a day.Oh, for just one day like that.
  • 00:14:23.068 --> 00:14:25.838
  • Wouldn't we do anythingfor one day
  • 00:14:25.871 --> 00:14:27.873
  • when righteousness reigned?
  • 00:14:27.907 --> 00:14:30.910
  • Righteousnessdoes not reign now.
  • 00:14:30.943 --> 00:14:32.811
  • Righteousness is put down by sin
  • 00:14:32.845 --> 00:14:34.813
  • because the enemy's been givena time.
  • 00:14:34.847 --> 00:14:36.882
  • But one day Daniel is told
  • 00:14:36.916 --> 00:14:38.550
  • righteousness will reignon this earth
  • 00:14:38.584 --> 00:14:41.020
  • and your people will livein this righteous time,
  • 00:14:41.053 --> 00:14:44.256
  • where there will beno transgression,
  • 00:14:44.290 --> 00:14:45.724
  • where sin will have been ended,
  • 00:14:45.758 --> 00:14:47.493
  • where iniquitywill have been reconciled,
  • 00:14:47.526 --> 00:14:50.029
  • where righteousness will reign.
  • 00:14:50.062 --> 00:14:52.531
  • Oh, it gets even better.
  • 00:14:52.564 --> 00:14:53.866
  • "And Daniel, that time is a time
  • 00:14:53.899 --> 00:14:56.001
  • when we will seal upvision in prophecy.
  • 00:14:56.035 --> 00:14:58.470
  • Daniel, when that timecomes for your people,
  • 00:14:58.504 --> 00:15:01.173
  • every single prophecythat's ever been made
  • 00:15:01.206 --> 00:15:04.209
  • will be fulfilled.
  • 00:15:04.243 --> 00:15:05.544
  • There will beno unfulfilled prophecy left."
  • 00:15:05.577 --> 00:15:09.949
  • He says, it will be a timeto anoint the Most Holy.
  • 00:15:09.982 --> 00:15:13.619
  • When you first read that,
  • 00:15:13.652 --> 00:15:14.954
  • you think that must referto Jesus, but it does not.
  • 00:15:14.987 --> 00:15:17.289
  • In fact, in the New Testament,
  • 00:15:17.323 --> 00:15:18.624
  • the term to anoint the Most Holynever refers to a person.
  • 00:15:18.657 --> 00:15:22.161
  • It always refers to a place,and we know what that place is.
  • 00:15:22.194 --> 00:15:26.231
  • "Daniel, there's coming a time
  • 00:15:26.265 --> 00:15:27.566
  • when you're gonna be regatheredinto your own land.
  • 00:15:27.599 --> 00:15:29.868
  • Sin will be mitigated,righteousness will rule,
  • 00:15:29.902 --> 00:15:33.172
  • and your holy templewill be reestablished
  • 00:15:33.205 --> 00:15:36.008
  • and you'll be able to worshipin your temple."
  • 00:15:36.041 --> 00:15:38.077
  • In the millennial temple,we are told
  • 00:15:38.110 --> 00:15:40.813
  • the Jews will come backas once they did,
  • 00:15:40.846 --> 00:15:43.749
  • they will offer sacrificesin testimony to the fact
  • 00:15:43.782 --> 00:15:46.986
  • that God has completedeverything on their behalf
  • 00:15:47.019 --> 00:15:49.788
  • and they will worshipas a Jewish nation
  • 00:15:49.822 --> 00:15:52.191
  • in their own landin Jerusalem.
  • 00:15:52.224 --> 00:15:56.695
  • Remember, this future that Godhas prepared for his people
  • 00:15:56.729 --> 00:16:00.666
  • is gonna happenat the end of the 490 years,
  • 00:16:00.699 --> 00:16:03.602
  • in the last weekof the 70 weeks.
  • 00:16:03.635 --> 00:16:07.206
  • But during the first 69 weeksof the prophecy,
  • 00:16:07.239 --> 00:16:11.543
  • we can go back and seewhat God said would happen
  • 00:16:11.577 --> 00:16:14.113
  • and we can check itagainst history,
  • 00:16:14.146 --> 00:16:15.547
  • and we can determine
  • 00:16:15.581 --> 00:16:16.882
  • whether God was tellingthe truth
  • 00:16:16.915 --> 00:16:18.217
  • or whether he was able to dowhat he said he would do.
  • 00:16:18.250 --> 00:16:21.220
  • So, go with me nowto the 25th verse,
  • 00:16:21.253 --> 00:16:24.123
  • and let's follow this through.
  • 00:16:24.156 --> 00:16:26.025
  • Please think with me,don't get lost,
  • 00:16:26.058 --> 00:16:28.527
  • and listen carefully and youwill be blessed if you do.
  • 00:16:28.560 --> 00:16:30.996
  • If you get lost,you will be unblessed.
  • 00:16:31.030 --> 00:16:33.332
  • I don't want youto be unblessed,
  • 00:16:33.365 --> 00:16:35.434
  • all right, here we go.
  • 00:16:35.467 --> 00:16:37.936
  • Verse 25,the commencement of it.
  • 00:16:37.970 --> 00:16:40.172
  • Daniel, here's what Iwant you to know,
  • 00:16:40.205 --> 00:16:41.774
  • "From the going forthof the command
  • 00:16:41.807 --> 00:16:44.309
  • to restore and build Jerusalem
  • 00:16:44.343 --> 00:16:46.578
  • until Messiah the Prince,shall be seven weeks,"
  • 00:16:46.612 --> 00:16:51.150
  • that's 49 years,"and sixty-two weeks;"
  • 00:16:51.183 --> 00:16:54.520
  • that equals the restof the 483 years.
  • 00:16:54.553 --> 00:16:57.289
  • So, listen to me now,God's telling Daniel,
  • 00:16:57.322 --> 00:16:59.858
  • "Here's a starting pointI want you to check out."
  • 00:16:59.892 --> 00:17:02.094
  • From the moment that the commandwas given in the Old Testament
  • 00:17:02.127 --> 00:17:05.697
  • to go and build againthe temple and the walls,
  • 00:17:05.731 --> 00:17:09.701
  • from that moment,and we know when that was.
  • 00:17:09.735 --> 00:17:14.706
  • Nehemiah, writingby divine inspiration,
  • 00:17:14.740 --> 00:17:17.009
  • records the exact dateof the decree.
  • 00:17:17.042 --> 00:17:19.945
  • It says in verse 1,"In the month of Nisan,
  • 00:17:19.978 --> 00:17:22.915
  • in the twentieth yearof King Artaxerxes the king."
  • 00:17:22.948 --> 00:17:26.251
  • That's an exact date.
  • 00:17:26.285 --> 00:17:27.853
  • That date fixed by Nehemiahhappens to be
  • 00:17:27.886 --> 00:17:30.456
  • one of the best known datesin ancient history.
  • 00:17:30.489 --> 00:17:33.225
  • Even the Encyclopedia Britannica
  • 00:17:33.258 --> 00:17:35.694
  • sets the dateof Artaxerxes' succession
  • 00:17:35.727 --> 00:17:38.464
  • as 465 BC,and his 20th year
  • 00:17:38.497 --> 00:17:42.801
  • would have beenfor 445 BC.
  • 00:17:42.835 --> 00:17:45.204
  • We convert Nisan 445 BCto our calendar,
  • 00:17:45.237 --> 00:17:48.540
  • we arrive at March 14, 445 BC
  • 00:17:48.574 --> 00:17:52.945
  • as the date of the commandto restore and build Jerusalem.
  • 00:17:52.978 --> 00:17:57.182
  • That's an exact date.
  • 00:17:57.216 --> 00:17:58.517
  • We know it was that date,
  • 00:17:58.550 --> 00:17:59.852
  • so file that in your computer,all right?
  • 00:17:59.885 --> 00:18:02.888
  • That's the beginningof the prophecy.
  • 00:18:02.921 --> 00:18:04.857
  • Now notice, we now havewhen the prophecy's gonna end,
  • 00:18:04.890 --> 00:18:08.193
  • the first 69 weeks.
  • 00:18:08.227 --> 00:18:09.828
  • Verse 25, "From the going forthof the command
  • 00:18:09.862 --> 00:18:12.731
  • to restore and build Jerusalemuntil Messiah the Prince."
  • 00:18:12.764 --> 00:18:21.740
  • What was Danielto understand about this?
  • 00:18:21.773 --> 00:18:23.809
  • Messiah the Prince will be
  • 00:18:23.842 --> 00:18:25.477
  • the end of the 69 yearsof prophecy.
  • 00:18:25.511 --> 00:18:29.548
  • Messiah the Princeis a Hebrew term
  • 00:18:29.581 --> 00:18:31.183
  • that means the anointed one,the ruler.
  • 00:18:31.216 --> 00:18:34.353
  • The term is associatedwith kingly authority,
  • 00:18:34.386 --> 00:18:36.989
  • and it is used to describethe appearing
  • 00:18:37.022 --> 00:18:39.491
  • of the Lord Jesus Christas a prince and a ruler.
  • 00:18:39.525 --> 00:18:43.495
  • And when did Jesus Christ appear
  • 00:18:43.529 --> 00:18:45.597
  • in his New Testament existenceon this earth?
  • 00:18:45.631 --> 00:18:49.101
  • When did he appearas a prince and a ruler?
  • 00:18:49.134 --> 00:18:51.737
  • Only one time,when he rode
  • 00:18:51.770 --> 00:18:53.906
  • into the city of Jerusalemon Palm Sunday
  • 00:18:53.939 --> 00:18:56.575
  • to present himselfas the King
  • 00:18:56.608 --> 00:18:58.277
  • and was rejectedby the Jewish people,
  • 00:18:58.310 --> 00:19:00.879
  • he came unto his ownand his own received him not,
  • 00:19:00.913 --> 00:19:03.549
  • the Scripture says.
  • 00:19:03.582 --> 00:19:04.883
  • But on that day, remember,
  • 00:19:04.917 --> 00:19:06.218
  • they had branches strewnin his pathway.
  • 00:19:06.251 --> 00:19:08.921
  • He was riding on a donkey,
  • 00:19:08.954 --> 00:19:10.522
  • and he cameinto the city of Jerusalem
  • 00:19:10.556 --> 00:19:12.324
  • to present himselfas God's Prince.
  • 00:19:12.357 --> 00:19:18.263
  • So Gabriel said, "Daniel,from the time of the command
  • 00:19:18.297 --> 00:19:21.500
  • to restore and buildthe city of Jerusalem
  • 00:19:21.533 --> 00:19:24.436
  • until the day Jesus ridesinto Jerusalem
  • 00:19:24.469 --> 00:19:26.705
  • presenting himselfas the Messiah the Prince
  • 00:19:26.738 --> 00:19:29.608
  • is a certain period of time."
  • 00:19:29.641 --> 00:19:32.978
  • Now, I want you to dothis math with me,
  • 00:19:33.011 --> 00:19:35.180
  • and I'm not gonna tryto make this
  • 00:19:35.214 --> 00:19:37.049
  • more complicatedthan it should be.
  • 00:19:37.082 --> 00:19:40.018
  • In order to find outwhen this end is gonna happen,
  • 00:19:40.052 --> 00:19:44.189
  • we have to do a little math.
  • 00:19:44.223 --> 00:19:45.791
  • First of all, we have to reducethese years to days.
  • 00:19:45.824 --> 00:19:50.162
  • Since we have 69 weeksof seven years each,
  • 00:19:50.195 --> 00:19:54.499
  • and each year has 360 days,the equation looks like this,
  • 00:19:54.533 --> 00:19:59.471
  • 69 weeks of seven yearsequals 483 years.
  • 00:19:59.504 --> 00:20:04.109
  • The math is correct.
  • 00:20:04.142 --> 00:20:06.812
  • Each year has 360 days.
  • 00:20:06.845 --> 00:20:09.681
  • So, you multiply 483 yearsby 360 days,
  • 00:20:09.715 --> 00:20:14.152
  • and you come outwith a number of days
  • 00:20:14.186 --> 00:20:15.854
  • between the commandto build Jerusalem
  • 00:20:15.887 --> 00:20:18.423
  • and the Messiah the Prince,and that is 173.880 days.
  • 00:20:18.457 --> 00:20:25.931
  • Beginningwith March 14, 445 BC
  • 00:20:25.964 --> 00:20:29.868
  • add 173.880 days,
  • 00:20:29.901 --> 00:20:33.305
  • and it brings youto April the 6th, 32 AD.
  • 00:20:33.338 --> 00:20:37.442
  • Now, listen carefully,and this is the exact day
  • 00:20:37.476 --> 00:20:41.246
  • our Lord rode into Jerusalem
  • 00:20:41.280 --> 00:20:43.915
  • to present himselfas the Prince.
  • 00:20:43.949 --> 00:20:46.752
  • It wasn't approximate,
  • 00:20:46.785 --> 00:20:48.287
  • it was to the very dayas the Prophet Daniel was told.
  • 00:20:48.320 --> 00:20:54.559
  • And what do you think that meantto Daniel as he pondered that?
  • 00:20:54.593 --> 00:20:58.497
  • He wouldn't ever liveeven to see
  • 00:20:58.530 --> 00:21:00.399
  • the end of that prophecy.
  • 00:21:00.432 --> 00:21:02.301
  • But what he realizedwas that God
  • 00:21:02.334 --> 00:21:04.036
  • was putting his own integrityon the line for his people.
  • 00:21:04.069 --> 00:21:07.606
  • He was saying to his people,
  • 00:21:07.639 --> 00:21:09.007
  • "I'm gonna dothese great things for you
  • 00:21:09.041 --> 00:21:10.976
  • at the endof the seventieth week;
  • 00:21:11.009 --> 00:21:13.578
  • but in between now and then,here's what's gonna happen,"
  • 00:21:13.612 --> 00:21:15.781
  • and he laid it outin such specific terms,
  • 00:21:15.814 --> 00:21:17.549
  • and now weas biblical students
  • 00:21:17.582 --> 00:21:19.217
  • can look back and say,
  • 00:21:19.251 --> 00:21:20.552
  • "That's what God saidand he meant it
  • 00:21:20.585 --> 00:21:23.288
  • and he pulled it off.
  • 00:21:23.322 --> 00:21:25.691
  • He did what he saidhe would do."
  • 00:21:25.724 --> 00:21:27.459
  • So, what that means is if he didwhat he said he would do
  • 00:21:27.492 --> 00:21:29.928
  • in that constructthat we can study,
  • 00:21:29.961 --> 00:21:31.963
  • guess what, the Jewish people
  • 00:21:31.997 --> 00:21:33.532
  • are gonna one day havea time in the future
  • 00:21:33.565 --> 00:21:37.703
  • when transgressionwill be moved out
  • 00:21:37.736 --> 00:21:40.305
  • and sin will be endedand iniquity will be gone
  • 00:21:40.339 --> 00:21:44.009
  • and righteousness will reign
  • 00:21:44.042 --> 00:21:45.977
  • and the holy templewill be open.
  • 00:21:46.011 --> 00:21:47.879
  • How do I know that?Because God said it.
  • 00:21:47.913 --> 00:21:50.015
  • And how do I knowthat God can do it?
  • 00:21:50.048 --> 00:21:51.616
  • Because he continues to do it,
  • 00:21:51.650 --> 00:21:53.318
  • and every time we turnthe pages of this Book,
  • 00:21:53.352 --> 00:21:55.520
  • we see another evidence
  • 00:21:55.554 --> 00:21:56.855
  • of the prophetic powerof Almighty God,
  • 00:21:56.888 --> 00:21:59.624
  • and how we can study itin history and see,
  • 00:21:59.658 --> 00:22:01.993
  • not only is itjust almost right,
  • 00:22:02.027 --> 00:22:04.529
  • it's not just close,it's right--
  • 00:22:04.563 --> 00:22:06.832
  • you know, if God only got close,it wouldn't be good enough.
  • 00:22:06.865 --> 00:22:11.136
  • God has to make it 100% right.
  • 00:22:11.169 --> 00:22:13.872
  • And this particular equationthat I've given you
  • 00:22:13.905 --> 00:22:16.808
  • has been in existencefor over 100 years.
  • 00:22:16.842 --> 00:22:19.611
  • Every scholarhas tried to rip it apart,
  • 00:22:19.644 --> 00:22:22.214
  • and they all come backwith, you know, that's right.
  • 00:22:22.247 --> 00:22:24.483
  • That's the way it is.That's what happened.
  • 00:22:24.516 --> 00:22:28.253
  • And so, God has a planfor his people.
  • 00:22:28.286 --> 00:22:30.655
  • I don't know what elseyou'll take away from here,
  • 00:22:30.689 --> 00:22:32.324
  • but as we live in this timewhen all of us trying to make
  • 00:22:32.357 --> 00:22:34.726
  • stand up decisionsabout what we do,
  • 00:22:34.760 --> 00:22:36.661
  • I want to encourage you,
  • 00:22:36.695 --> 00:22:38.163
  • you may not have been taughtthe Word of God
  • 00:22:38.196 --> 00:22:40.232
  • about the people of Israel.
  • 00:22:40.265 --> 00:22:41.566
  • God has a plan for his people.
  • 00:22:41.600 --> 00:22:43.702
  • God loves the people of Israel.
  • 00:22:43.735 --> 00:22:45.437
  • He doesn't love them any morethan he loves you and me,
  • 00:22:45.470 --> 00:22:48.206
  • but he ordained that nation
  • 00:22:48.240 --> 00:22:50.409
  • to be a special nationto himself.
  • 00:22:50.442 --> 00:22:53.078
  • Out of the nation of Israelcame our Savior,
  • 00:22:53.111 --> 00:22:55.514
  • the Lord Jesus Christ,
  • 00:22:55.547 --> 00:22:56.848
  • born in the genealogyin the book of Matthew.
  • 00:22:56.882 --> 00:22:59.918
  • From the Jewish people came
  • 00:22:59.951 --> 00:23:01.253
  • almost 80%of everything that's written
  • 00:23:01.286 --> 00:23:04.256
  • in this Book, the Bible.
  • 00:23:04.289 --> 00:23:06.391
  • And my prayeris that somehow, someway,
  • 00:23:06.425 --> 00:23:08.794
  • in the midstof all the confusion
  • 00:23:08.827 --> 00:23:10.128
  • that seems to reignin Washington today,
  • 00:23:10.162 --> 00:23:12.564
  • someone would realizethat the future of Israel
  • 00:23:12.597 --> 00:23:16.401
  • is dependent upon America,and the future of America
  • 00:23:16.435 --> 00:23:20.472
  • is dependentupon what we do with Israel.
  • 00:23:20.505 --> 00:23:23.108
  • If we don't do the right thing,we will live to regret it.
  • 00:23:23.141 --> 00:23:31.683
  • Ladies and gentlemen,
  • 00:23:31.716 --> 00:23:33.018
  • we stand here todaywith a full knowledge
  • 00:23:33.051 --> 00:23:35.654
  • that God has sent his Messiahto this world for us.
  • 00:23:35.687 --> 00:23:40.258
  • And the Lord Jesus Christ said,
  • 00:23:40.292 --> 00:23:42.060
  • "I am comethat you might have life
  • 00:23:42.093 --> 00:23:44.496
  • and that you might have itmore abundantly."
  • 00:23:44.529 --> 00:23:47.165
  • He said, "I have not cometo be ministered unto,
  • 00:23:47.199 --> 00:23:49.668
  • but to minister and to givemy life a ransom for many."
  • 00:23:49.701 --> 00:23:53.605

  • like the one we readtoday in Daniel,
  • 00:25:41.713 --> 00:25:43.882
  • become the most encouragingthe longer we reflect on them.
  • 00:25:43.915 --> 00:25:48.587
  • I don't want to take away
  • 00:25:48.620 --> 00:25:49.921
  • from the seriousnessof the days to come,

  • but rather to appreciatethe hope we have
  • 00:25:52.357 --> 00:25:54.726
  • in our returning Savior,Jesus Christ.
  • 00:25:54.759 --> 00:25:58.029
  • Even though this earthwill one day pass away,
  • 00:25:58.063 --> 00:26:00.832
  • Christ will establish a kingdomthat will never be destroyed.
  • 00:26:00.865 --> 00:26:04.936
  • I pray that you've made himthe Lord of your life,
