  • NOW REMEMBER THEBACKGROUND FOR DANIEL,
  • 00:07:13.322 --> 00:07:14.824
  • DANIEL WAS A YOUNG JEW,WHO WAS TAKEN CAPTIVE
  • 00:07:14.857 --> 00:07:19.362
  • BY THE BABYLONIANS ALONGWITH MOST OF THE JEWS
  • 00:07:19.395 --> 00:07:22.431
  • LIVING IN THE ISRAEL.
  • 00:07:22.465 --> 00:07:24.800
  • THE BABYLONIANS TOOKTHEM CAPTIVE IN 586 BC,
  • 00:07:24.834 --> 00:07:29.639
  • AND THE DANIEL ANDALL OF THE PEOPLE
  • 00:07:29.672 --> 00:07:33.209
  • WERE DISCOURAGED BY THIS.
  • 00:07:33.242 --> 00:07:35.111
  • AND AS YEARS TURNED INTODECADES, AND THEY WERE IN
  • 00:07:35.144 --> 00:07:38.481
  • BABYLON, THEY NATURALLYWANTED TO KNOW,
  • 00:07:38.514 --> 00:07:40.483
  • IS THIS AN END OF GOD'SPLAN FOR HIS PEOPLE?
  • 00:07:40.516 --> 00:07:43.419
  • HAS GOD'S PLAN BEEN THWARTED?
  • 00:07:43.452 --> 00:07:45.488
  • IT CERTAINLY ISN'T COMPLETED YET
  • 00:07:45.521 --> 00:07:47.156

  • IS GOD FINISHED WITH ISRAEL?
  • 00:07:50.760 --> 00:07:52.495
  • SO DANIEL BEGIN TO PRAY TO GOD
  • 00:07:52.528 --> 00:07:54.497
  • AND ASK GOD TO GIVEHIM A REVELATION
  • 00:07:54.530 --> 00:07:57.099

  • 00:09:12.475 --> 00:09:15.378
  • TO ISRAEL'S REBELLION,TO MAKE AN END OF SIN.
  • 00:09:15.411 --> 00:09:18.881
  • THIS IS A REFERENCETO THE ERADICATION
  • 00:09:18.914 --> 00:09:22.451
  • OF THE SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM,NO MORE SACRIFICES NEEDED.
  • 00:09:22.485 --> 00:09:26.288
  • WHY?
  • 00:09:26.322 --> 00:09:27.490
  • THIRDLY, TO MAKE ANATONEMENT FOR INIQUITY.
  • 00:09:27.523 --> 00:09:29.792
  • ISRAEL'S SINS WILL HAVEBEEN FINALLY PAID FOR
  • 00:09:29.825 --> 00:09:32.361
  • SOMETIME DURING THIS490 YEAR PERIOD.
  • 00:09:32.395 --> 00:09:35.164
  • TO BRING IN EVERLASTINGRIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:09:35.197 --> 00:09:37.700
  • THAT'S A REFERENCEFOR THE MILLENNIUM,
  • 00:09:37.733 --> 00:09:39.502
  • THE RULE OF CHRIST ON EARTH.
  • 00:09:39.535 --> 00:09:41.570
  • TO SEAL UP VISION AND PROPHECY:
  • 00:09:41.604 --> 00:09:43.606
  • THAT MEANS NO MOREPROPHECY NEEDED ANY LONGER
  • 00:09:43.639 --> 00:09:47.443
  • AND TO ANOINT THE MOST HOLYPLACE THAT IS TO REBUILD
  • 00:09:47.476 --> 00:09:51.280
  • THE TEMPLE AND HAVE IT BE APERMANENT FIXTURE ON THE EARTH.
  • 00:09:51.313 --> 00:09:55.518
  • IN OTHER WORDS,GABRIEL SAID DANIEL,
  • 00:09:55.551 --> 00:09:58.020
  • IN 490 YEARS ALL OF THESETHINGS ARE GOING TO BE HAPPENED
  • 00:09:58.054 --> 00:10:01.957
  • AND ALL OF THESE PROMISESARE GOING TO BE FULFILLED.
  • 00:10:01.991 --> 00:10:05.995
  • NOW, IF I WERE DANIEL,I WOULD WANT TO KNOW,
  • 00:10:06.028 --> 00:10:08.431
  • IS THAT 490 YEARS FROM TODAY?
  • 00:10:08.464 --> 00:10:12.168
  • WHEN DO WE START COUNTINGDOWN THESE 490 YEARS?
  • 00:10:12.201 --> 00:10:16.172
  • WELL, GABRIEL TELLSUS IN VERSE 26,
  • 00:10:16.205 --> 00:10:19.442
  • IT DOESN'T STARTRIGHT NOW, DANIEL,
  • 00:10:19.475 --> 00:10:21.444
  • BUT HERE'S WHEN YOUCAN START COUNTING.
  • 00:10:21.477 --> 00:10:23.946
  • SO YOU ARE TO KNOW ANDDISCERN THAT FROM THE ISSUING
  • 00:10:23.979 --> 00:10:28.651
  • OF A DECREE TO RESTOREAND REBUILD JERUSALEM,
  • 00:10:28.684 --> 00:10:32.221
  • UNTIL THE MESSIAH THE PRINCE
  • 00:10:32.254 --> 00:10:34.690
  • THERE WILL BE SEVENSEVENS AND 62 SEVENS.
  • 00:10:34.724 --> 00:10:40.563
  • NOW, 62 PLUS SEVEN IS WHAT?
  • 00:10:40.596 --> 00:10:42.498
  • 69.
  • 00:10:42.531 --> 00:10:43.966
  • 69 WEEKS OF YEARS, 69 SEVENS.
  • 00:10:43.999 --> 00:10:47.770
  • IF YOU WANT TO DO THE MATHON IT, THAT'S 483 YEARS.
  • 00:10:47.803 --> 00:10:52.274
  • IN OTHER WORDS, GODHAS THE STOPWATCH,
  • 00:10:52.308 --> 00:10:55.177
  • IT HAS 490 AT THE TOP,
  • 00:10:55.211 --> 00:10:58.714
  • HE'S GOING TO PRESS THATSTOPWATCH AT SOME POINT IN THEFUTURE.
  • 00:10:58.748 --> 00:11:02.251
  • WHAT IS THAT FUTURE?
  • 00:11:02.284 --> 00:11:03.753
  • WHENEVER THE DECREE GOESOUT TO REBUILD JERUSALEM.
  • 00:11:03.786 --> 00:11:07.923
  • REMEMBER, DANIEL WAS IN BABYLON.
  • 00:11:07.957 --> 00:11:11.794
  • BUT HE SAID AT SOME FUTURE TIME,
  • 00:11:11.827 --> 00:11:14.663
  • SOMEBODY WHO RULES BABYLON ISGOING TO GIVE YOU THE GO SIGNAL,
  • 00:11:14.697 --> 00:11:18.267
  • JEWS TO GO BACK TO THE LAND
  • 00:11:18.300 --> 00:11:20.970
  • AND TO REBUILD THECITY OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:11:21.003 --> 00:11:23.739
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT ACTUALLYHAPPENED IN HISTORY?
  • 00:11:23.773 --> 00:11:26.542
  • AND WE KNOW THE EXACT YEAR,WE KNOW THE EXACT MONTH,
  • 00:11:26.575 --> 00:11:30.212
  • WE KNOW THE EXACT DAYFROM SECULAR HISTORY
  • 00:11:30.246 --> 00:11:32.782
  • WHEN THAT HAPPENED; IT ISMARCH THE 14TH, 445 BC.
  • 00:11:32.815 --> 00:11:37.453
  • THAT'S WHEN THE PERSIANRULER, ARTAXERXES LONGIMANUS,
  • 00:11:37.486 --> 00:11:41.290
  • GAVE THE DECREETO ALLOW THE JEWS
  • 00:11:41.323 --> 00:11:43.659
  • TO RETURN AND TOREBUILD JERUSALEM.
  • 00:11:43.692 --> 00:11:48.364
  • GABRIEL SAID THAT'S WHENTHE STOPWATCH BEGINS.
  • 00:11:48.397 --> 00:11:51.000
  • FROM THE TIME THATDECREE GOES OUT
  • 00:11:51.033 --> 00:11:53.502
  • UNTIL MESSIAH THE PRINCE,THERE WILL BE 483 YEARS.
  • 00:11:53.536 --> 00:11:59.775
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEANUNTIL MESSIAH THE PRINCE?
  • 00:11:59.809 --> 00:12:01.610
  • WHO WAS MESSIAH?
  • 00:12:01.644 --> 00:12:04.113
  • JESUS, GOOD CLASS, VERY GOOD.
  • 00:12:04.146 --> 00:12:06.081
  • OKAY, THE MESSIAH WAS JESUS.
  • 00:12:06.115 --> 00:12:09.985
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FROM THETIME HE APPEARED IN BETHLEHEM?
  • 00:12:10.019 --> 00:12:12.855
  • IS THAT WHEN THE483 YEARS STOPS?
  • 00:12:12.888 --> 00:12:15.891
  • NO, IT SAYS MESSIAH THE PRINCE.
  • 00:12:15.925 --> 00:12:18.494
  • THIS IS A REFERENCE TO THETIME THAT JESUS WAS PRESENTED
  • 00:12:18.527 --> 00:12:22.398
  • AS THE SON OF GOD, DO YOUREMEMBER WHEN THAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:12:22.431 --> 00:12:25.067
  • WHEN IT BECAME CLEARTO THE WHOLE NATION,
  • 00:12:25.100 --> 00:12:27.369
  • HE WAS PRESENTED NATIONALLY,
  • 00:12:27.403 --> 00:12:29.572
  • IT WAS WHEN HE ENTERED THECITY ON THE BACK OF A DONKEY.
  • 00:12:29.605 --> 00:12:33.042
  • AND THE PEOPLE SAIDHOSANNA, HOSANNA.
  • 00:12:33.075 --> 00:12:36.278
  • THAT WAS THE NATIONALPRESENTATION OF JESUS
  • 00:12:36.312 --> 00:12:40.282
  • AS THE MESSIAH. NOW AGAIN, WEKNOW WHEN THAT HAPPENED,
  • 00:12:40.316 --> 00:12:47.022
  • GREAT STUDIES OF BIBLICAL,
  • 00:12:47.056 --> 00:12:49.758
  • STUDIES OF BIBLICAL CHRONOLOGYLIKE J. DWIGHT PENTECOST
  • 00:12:49.792 --> 00:12:53.696
  • AND HAROLD HOHNER, WHOSPECIALIZE IN CHRONOLOGY OF THE
  • 00:12:53.729 --> 00:12:58.567
  • BIBLE HAVE CALCULATEDDELIGHTED THAT DAY
  • 00:12:58.601 --> 00:12:59.935
  • TO BE APRIL THE 2ND 32 AD.
  • 00:12:59.969 --> 00:13:04.039
  • AND USING THE IRREGULARITIESAND THE DIFFERENCES
  • 00:13:04.073 --> 00:13:06.775
  • BETWEEN THE JEWISH ANDTHE ROMAN CALENDARS,
  • 00:13:06.809 --> 00:13:09.979
  • THEY HAVE GONE TOGREAT LENGTHS TO SHOW
  • 00:13:10.012 --> 00:13:12.514
  • THE TIME BETWEEN THE DAYTHAT ARTAXERXES LONGIMANUS
  • 00:13:12.548 --> 00:13:16.619
  • ISSUED THAT DECREE IN 445BC TO GO BACK TO JERUSALEM
  • 00:13:16.652 --> 00:13:20.689
  • UNTIL JESUS RODE INTO THE CITYON THAT DAY IN 32 AD APRIL 2,
  • 00:13:20.723 --> 00:13:27.696
  • IT WAS EXACTLY, EXACTLY483 YEARS TO THE VERY DATE.
  • 00:13:27.730 --> 00:13:36.071
  • THAT THAT IS WHATI CALL AMAZING.
  • 00:13:36.105 --> 00:13:38.007
  • REMEMBER, DANIEL LIVED DECADESBEFORE THAT DECREE WENT OUT.
  • 00:13:38.040 --> 00:13:44.179
  • HE LIVED IN THE SIXTHCENTURY BC AND THE 500S
  • 00:13:44.213 --> 00:13:46.949
  • BUT HE WAS ABLE TO LOOK DOWNBECAUSE GABRIEL ALLOWED HIM TO
  • 00:13:46.982 --> 00:13:50.319
  • AND SAID THIS IS GOING TOHAPPEN IN 445 BC,
  • 00:13:50.352 --> 00:13:53.589
  • WE'RE GOING TO BE ALLOWED TOGO BACK AND NOT ONLY THAT,
  • 00:13:53.622 --> 00:13:56.091
  • MESSIAH THE PRINCE WILLBE PRESENTED IN AD 32.
  • 00:13:56.125 --> 00:14:00.529
  • 483 YEARS WHEN ISRAELREJECTED MESSIAH,
  • 00:14:00.562 --> 00:14:04.066
  • GOD STOPPED THE STOPWATCH.
  • 00:14:04.099 --> 00:14:06.769
  • IT STARTED AT 490YEARS, 483 YEARS PAST,
  • 00:14:06.802 --> 00:14:12.875
  • BUT WHEN ISRAELREJECTED CHRIST, BOOM!
  • 00:14:12.908 --> 00:14:16.078
  • THE STOPWATCH STOPPED.
  • 00:14:16.111 --> 00:14:19.248
  • HOW MANY YEARS WOULDHAVE BEEN LEFT?
  • 00:14:19.281 --> 00:14:21.350
  • YOU'RE GOING TO WORK ON THEGRAPHICS, SEVEN YEARS ARE LEFT.
  • 00:14:21.383 --> 00:14:24.653
  • THERE IS A SEVEN YEARPERIOD OF TIME LEFT
  • 00:14:24.687 --> 00:14:27.790
  • FOR GOD TO FINISH EVERYTHINGHE'S GOING TO DO WITH ISRAEL.
  • 00:14:27.823 --> 00:14:32.127
  • NOW THAT TIME THAT GODSTOPPED THE STOPWATCH,
  • 00:14:32.161 --> 00:14:35.264
  • HE STOPPED IT IN 32 AD
  • 00:14:35.297 --> 00:14:36.966
  • AND IT'S BEEN STOPPEDFOR 2.000 YEARS.
  • 00:14:36.999 --> 00:14:39.735
  • AND IT'S PREDICTEDRIGHT HERE IN VERSE 26,
  • 00:14:39.768 --> 00:14:42.538
  • THAT A NUMBER OF THINGS WOULDHAPPEN AFTER THAT 483 YEARS
  • 00:14:42.571 --> 00:14:46.875
  • BEFORE THE FINAL SEVENYEARS, THERE'D BE A GAP.
  • 00:14:46.909 --> 00:14:50.446
  • I DON'T THINK DANIELOR ANYBODY KNEW
  • 00:14:50.479 --> 00:14:52.614
  • THE THOUSANDS OFYEARS BUT IT HAS BEEN,
  • 00:14:52.648 --> 00:14:54.817
  • HE SAID THEN AFTERTHOSE 483 YEARS,
  • 00:14:54.850 --> 00:14:57.953
  • MESSIAH WILL BE CUTOFF, THAT'S A REFERENCE
  • 00:14:57.987 --> 00:15:00.189
  • TO THE CRUCIFIXIONAND HAVE NOTHING.
  • 00:15:00.222 --> 00:15:02.558
  • AND THE PEOPLE WHO ARE OFTHE PRINCE WHO IS TO COME
  • 00:15:02.591 --> 00:15:05.260
  • WILL DESTROY THE CITYAND THE SANCTUARY,
  • 00:15:05.294 --> 00:15:08.864
  • THAT HAPPENED IN 70 ADWHEN TITUS ENTERED THE CITY
  • 00:15:08.897 --> 00:15:12.401
  • AND DESTROYED JERUSALEM.
  • 00:15:12.434 --> 00:15:14.269
  • AND IT'S END WILLCOME WITH A FLOOD.
  • 00:15:14.303 --> 00:15:16.472
  • NOW VERSE 27, AND HE , THATIS THE PRINCE THE ANTICHRIST,
  • 00:15:16.505 --> 00:15:21.243
  • WILL MAKE A FIRM COVENANTWITH THE MANY FOR ONE WEEK,
  • 00:15:21.276 --> 00:15:25.581
  • ONE WEEK, SEVEN YEARS, THATIS WHEN THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS
  • 00:15:25.614 --> 00:15:31.587
  • BEGINS TICKING OFF.
  • 00:15:31.620 --> 00:15:33.222
  • BUT IN THE MIDDLEOF THAT SEVEN YEARS,
  • 00:15:33.255 --> 00:15:36.325
  • AFTER THE FIRST THREEAND A HALF YEARS,
  • 00:15:36.358 --> 00:15:38.193
  • HE WILL BREAK THAT COVENANT.
  • 00:15:38.227 --> 00:15:41.230
  • HE WILL PUT A STOP TOSACRIFICING GRAIN OFFERING
  • 00:15:41.263 --> 00:15:43.932
  • THEN ON THE WINGSOF ABOMINATIONS,
  • 00:15:43.966 --> 00:15:45.968
  • WILL COME ONE WHOMAKES DESOLATE.
  • 00:15:46.001 --> 00:15:48.570
  • THERE ARE SEVENYEARS LEFT FOR GOD
  • 00:15:48.604 --> 00:15:51.073
  • TO FINISH HIS PLAN WITH ISRAEL.
  • 00:15:51.106 --> 00:15:53.175
  • RIGHT NOW THESTOPWATCH IS STOPPED,
  • 00:15:53.208 --> 00:15:55.044
  • BETWEEN VERSES 26 AND 27, WEARE LIVING IN THAT GAP OF TIME
  • 00:15:55.077 --> 00:16:00.649
  • WE CALL THE CHURCH AGE.
  • 00:16:00.682 --> 00:16:02.651
  • THIS IS THE TIME THAT GOD HASTEMPORARILY SET ASIDE ISRAEL,
  • 00:16:02.684 --> 00:16:06.088
  • HE SAID, I'M STOPPINGWITH YOU RIGHT NOW
  • 00:16:06.121 --> 00:16:08.857
  • SO I CAN DO SOMETHING OVER HERE.
  • 00:16:08.891 --> 00:16:10.959
  • ALLOW THE GENTILES, NON-JEWSTO COME TO FAITH IN CHRIST.
  • 00:16:10.993 --> 00:16:14.763
  • AND THAT'S WHAT PAUL HADIN MIND IN ROMANS 11:25
  • 00:16:14.797 --> 00:16:17.332
  • WHEN HE SAID, I DON'T WANTYOU TO BE IGNORANT, BRETHREN,
  • 00:16:17.366 --> 00:16:20.469
  • THAT A PARTIAL HARDENINGHAS COME TO ISRAEL
  • 00:16:20.502 --> 00:16:24.640
  • UNTIL THE FULLNESS OFTHE GENTILES HAS COME IN.
  • 00:16:24.673 --> 00:16:29.545
  • WHEN I HAVE FINISHED MYPLAN WITH THE GENTILES,
  • 00:16:29.578 --> 00:16:32.581
  • I'M NOT FORSAKING ISRAEL, I'VENOT FORGOTTEN ABOUT ISRAEL.
  • 00:16:32.614 --> 00:16:35.184
  • I'M LETTING GENTILESCOME TO FAITH IN CHRIST
  • 00:16:35.217 --> 00:16:38.220
  • BUT WHEN THE ENDOF THAT TIME COMES,
  • 00:16:38.253 --> 00:16:41.256
  • WE'RE GOING TO RESTARTTHE STOPWATCH
  • 00:16:41.290 --> 00:16:42.925
  • AND FINISH THE PLAN WITH ISRAEL.
  • 00:16:42.958 --> 00:16:45.160
  • THAT'S WHAT THE CHURCH AGE IS,
  • 00:16:45.194 --> 00:16:46.528
  • AND WHAT IS THE END OFTHAT PERIOD OF TIME?
  • 00:16:46.562 --> 00:16:48.530
  • IT'S THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH,WHEN GOD GATHERS TOGETHER
  • 00:16:48.564 --> 00:16:51.800
  • ALL BELIEVERS, THATWILL MEAN IT IS TIME
  • 00:16:51.834 --> 00:16:55.170
  • FOR THAT FINALSEVEN YEAR PERIOD.
  • 00:16:55.204 --> 00:16:57.239
  • AND I THINK YOUCAN SEE HOW THE TWO
  • 00:16:57.272 --> 00:16:59.308
  • COINCIDE WITH ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:16:59.341 --> 00:17:01.577
  • HOW WILL THE ANTICHRISTRISE TO POWER?
  • 00:17:01.610 --> 00:17:05.247
  • AS WE'LL SEE NEXT WEEK,WHEN HE RISES TO POWER,
  • 00:17:05.280 --> 00:17:08.984
  • HE DOES SO WITHOUT ANY FORCE.
  • 00:17:09.017 --> 00:17:11.887
  • PEOPLE WILLINGLYFOLLOW HIS LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:17:11.920 --> 00:17:14.022
  • HE HAS A BOW BUTNO ARROWS WITH IT.
  • 00:17:14.056 --> 00:17:17.292
  • HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHTWHAT IS IT IN AMERICA
  • 00:17:17.326 --> 00:17:19.394
  • THAT WOULD WILLINGLY GIVEUP OUR DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM
  • 00:17:19.428 --> 00:17:22.464
  • TO FOLLOW A DICTATOR WHOSAYS NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH,
  • 00:17:22.498 --> 00:17:26.201
  • NO FREEDOM OF RELIGION,NO FREEDOM OF COMMERCE,
  • 00:17:26.235 --> 00:17:28.504
  • WHY WILL AMERICA, WHY WILL THEENTIRE WORLD AGREE TO THAT?
  • 00:17:28.537 --> 00:17:34.710
  • IT COULD BE IN PARTBECAUSE OF THE CHAOS
  • 00:17:34.743 --> 00:17:37.012
  • THAT ENSUES AT THE RAPTURE.
  • 00:17:37.045 --> 00:17:39.715
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE WHATIT'S GOING TO BE LIKE
  • 00:17:39.748 --> 00:17:42.351
  • WHEN MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AROUNDTHE WORLD DISAPPEAR SUDDENLY?
  • 00:17:42.384 --> 00:17:47.789
  • I MEAN, YOU CAN JUST SEETHE CHAOS IN THE WORLD
  • 00:17:47.823 --> 00:17:50.626
  • THAT IS GOING TO OCCUR AFTERTHE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:17:50.659 --> 00:17:53.762
  • I BELIEVE IT IS THAT CHAOSTHAT WILL MAKE PEOPLE
  • 00:17:53.795 --> 00:17:56.999
  • SO DESPERATE FOR ORDERTHAT THEY WILL WILLINGLY
  • 00:17:57.032 --> 00:17:59.935
  • FOLLOW ANYBODY WHO SAYS THEYCAN BRING PEACE OUT OF CHAOS.
  • 00:17:59.968 --> 00:18:06.341
  • AND THAT'S WHY IN VERSE 7YOU SEE THE ANTICHRIST
  • 00:18:06.375 --> 00:18:08.010
  • RISING TO POWER WITHOUTANY OPPOSITION WHATSOEVER.
  • 00:18:08.043 --> 00:18:14.216
  • WHAT IS THE PURPOSEOF THE TRIBULATION?
  • 00:18:14.249 --> 00:18:16.084
  • LET ME JUST MENTIONTO VERY BRIEFLY,
  • 00:18:16.118 --> 00:18:18.320
  • WHY DOES GOD HAVE TO DO THIS?
  • 00:18:18.353 --> 00:18:20.422
  • IS HE JUST A COSMIC KILLJOYWHO LOVES PUNISHING PEOPLE?
  • 00:18:20.455 --> 00:18:24.092
  • NO, THERE ARE TWOVERY IMPORTANT REASONS
  • 00:18:24.126 --> 00:18:27.129
  • FOR THE TRIBULATION.
