  • HI, I'M ROBERT JEFFRESS AND WELCOME AGAIN
  • 00:00:14.050 --> 00:00:16.290
  • TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:17.000 --> 00:00:19.000
  • WE'RE CONTINUING OUR IN-DEPTH STUDY OF THE BOOK OF DANIEL.
  • 00:00:19.010 --> 00:00:22.030
  • AND TODAY, WE'RE GOING TO VENTURE INTO DANIEL CHAPTER 9,
  • 00:00:22.040 --> 00:00:26.030
  • A PASSAGE THAT, I BELIEVE, CONTAINS THE MOST REMARKABLE
  • 00:00:26.040 --> 00:00:30.110
  • PROPHECY IN ALL OF SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:00:30.120 --> 00:00:33.040
  • MORE THAN 500 HUNDREDS OF YEARS BEFORE JESUS WAS BORN,
  • 00:00:33.050 --> 00:00:37.020
  • DANIEL PREDICTED THE YEAR, THE MONTH AND THE DAY THAT JESUS
  • 00:00:37.030 --> 00:00:42.120
  • WOULD BE PRESENTED AS MESSIAH IN JERUSALEM.
  • 00:00:42.130 --> 00:00:45.230
  • THIS PROPHECY ALSO GIVES US CLARITY ABOUT WHERE OUR WORLD
  • 00:00:45.240 --> 00:00:50.060
  • IS HEADED IN THE FUTURE.
  • 00:00:50.070 --> 00:00:52.080
  • WE'RE PULLING BACK THE CURTAIN ON THE MOST AMAZING PROPHECY
  • 00:00:53.040 --> 00:00:56.260
  • IN THE BIBLE ON TODAY'S EDITION OF PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:56.270 --> 00:01:01.100
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:03.150 --> 00:01:07.270
  • IN A WORLD THAT OFTEN SEEMS DARK AND HOPELESS
  • 00:01:08.110 --> 00:01:11.050
  • WE CAN FIRMLY ROOT OUR HOPE IN THE FACT THAT JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:01:11.060 --> 00:01:14.210
  • IS COMING BACK!
  • 00:01:14.220 --> 00:01:16.030
  • TODAY, WE'D LIKE TO SEND YOU AN EYE-OPENING,
  • 00:01:16.040 --> 00:01:18.100
  • NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN MESSAGE FROM DR. ROBERT JEFFRESS
  • 00:01:18.110 --> 00:01:21.170
  • ABOUT THE RAPTURE AND THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST.
  • 00:01:21.180 --> 00:01:24.120
  • IT WAS RECORDED ON LOCATION AT THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 00:01:24.130 --> 00:01:27.030
  • THE VERY PLACE WHERE JESUS IS GOING TO RETURN!
  • 00:01:27.040 --> 00:01:30.130
  • A COPY OF THE KING IS COMING
  • 00:01:30.140 --> 00:01:32.050
  • IS AVAILABLE TO YOU ON BOTH CD AND DVD
  • 00:01:32.060 --> 00:01:34.280
  • WHEN YOU GIVE A MINISTRY GIFT TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:01:34.290 --> 00:01:37.240
  • "HE'S COMING BACK AGAIN TO RECLAIM WHAT BELONGS TO HIM.
  • 00:01:37.250 --> 00:01:42.210
  • AND THAT'S WHY THERE MUST BE A LITERAL SECOND COMING
  • 00:01:42.220 --> 00:01:46.160
  • SO THAT HE COULD RETURN TO THIS EARTH.
  • 00:01:46.170 --> 00:01:48.230
  • HE CAN WALK ACROSS THAT VALLEY.
  • 00:01:48.240 --> 00:01:50.180
  • HE CAN WALK THROUGH THOSE GATES AND BE RECOGNIZED
  • 00:01:50.190 --> 00:01:54.030
  • AS THE RULER OF ALL OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:01:54.040 --> 00:01:56.140
  • JESUS MESSIAH."
  • 00:01:56.150 --> 00:01:58.100
  • DISCOVER WHY YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO THE RETURN
  • 00:01:58.110 --> 00:02:01.010
  • OF CHRIST WITH HOPEFUL JOY AND ANTICIPATION.
  • 00:02:01.020 --> 00:02:03.220
  • REQUEST THE KING IS COMING
  • 00:02:03.230 --> 00:02:05.150
  • FROM PATHWAY TO VICTORY TODAY!
  • 00:02:05.160 --> 00:02:08.030
  • MUSIC
  • 00:02:08.040 --> 00:02:10.070
  • MUSIC
  • 00:02:10.160 --> 00:02:16.090
  • DANIEL 9 PROBABLY IS THE CLEAREST OUTLINE EVER
  • 00:02:17.010 --> 00:02:23.030
  • WRITTEN ABOUT WHERE WE ARE HEADING AS A WORLD;
  • 00:02:23.040 --> 00:02:27.030
  • WHERE WE ARE; WHERE WE ARE HEADING AND HOW WE SHOULD
  • 00:02:27.040 --> 00:02:30.230
  • LIVE IN LIGHT OF THAT TRUTH.
  • 00:02:30.240 --> 00:02:33.060
  • YOU KNOW, ANY TIME GOD GIVES US A REVELATION
  • 00:02:33.070 --> 00:02:36.010
  • ABOUT THE FUTURE, AS HE DOES IN THIS BOOK - ANY
  • 00:02:36.020 --> 00:02:39.020
  • TIME GOD TELLS US ABOUT THE FUTURE,
  • 00:02:39.030 --> 00:02:41.020
  • IT IS NOT TO SCRATCH OUR ITCH FOR
  • 00:02:41.030 --> 00:02:44.030
  • A PROPHETIC UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:02:44.040 --> 00:02:46.010
  • THE REASON GOD GIVES US KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE FUTURE
  • 00:02:46.020 --> 00:02:48.270
  • IS SO THAT WE CAN LIVE OUR LIVES IN A WAY THAT'S
  • 00:02:48.280 --> 00:02:51.250
  • PLEASING TO HIM.
  • 00:02:51.260 --> 00:02:53.200
  • TODAY WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT WHAT I BELIEVE IS
  • 00:02:53.210 --> 00:02:56.110
  • THE MOST AMAZING PROPHECY OF ALL OF THE PROPHECIES
  • 00:02:56.120 --> 00:02:59.250
  • IN SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:02:59.260 --> 00:03:00.260
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES TURN TO DANIEL 9.
  • 00:03:00.270 --> 00:03:04.020
  • NOW, THE SETTING FOR DANIEL'S VISION IS FOUND
  • 00:03:04.030 --> 00:03:07.220
  • IN VERSES 1 AND 2, "IN THE FIRST YEAR OF DARIUS THE
  • 00:03:07.230 --> 00:03:11.200
  • SON OF AHASUERUS, OF MEDIAN DESCENT,
  • 00:03:11.210 --> 00:03:14.060
  • WHO WAS MADE KING OVER THE KINGDOM OF THE CHALDEANS."
  • 00:03:14.070 --> 00:03:18.030
  • NOW WE'RE TOLD WHEN THIS VISION TOOK PLACE.
  • 00:03:18.040 --> 00:03:20.180
  • IT TOOK PLACE WHEN DARIUS, THE FIRST PERSIAN RULER
  • 00:03:20.190 --> 00:03:24.130
  • WAS KING.
  • 00:03:24.140 --> 00:03:25.150
  • REMEMBER IT WAS DARIUS WHO HAD HAD DANIEL THROWN INTO
  • 00:03:25.160 --> 00:03:27.250
  • THE LION'S DEN WHEN HE WOULDN'T BOW DOWN BEFORE
  • 00:03:27.260 --> 00:03:31.110
  • DARIUS AND WORSHIPED JEHOVAH INSTEAD.
  • 00:03:31.120 --> 00:03:34.190
  • AND IT WAS AFTER THAT DELIVERANCE THAT DARIUS
  • 00:03:34.200 --> 00:03:37.200
  • SAW THAT GOD'S HAND WAS ON DANIEL AND HE RAISED HIM
  • 00:03:37.210 --> 00:03:40.260
  • UP AND MADE HIM ONE OF THE THREE COMMISSIONERS
  • 00:03:40.270 --> 00:03:42.200
  • IN BABYLON.
  • 00:03:42.210 --> 00:03:43.230
  • AND AFTER THAT TIME GOD GAVE DANIEL THIS VISION.
  • 00:03:43.240 --> 00:03:47.210
  • LOOK AT VERSE 2, "IN THE FIRST YEAR OF DARIUS'
  • 00:03:47.220 --> 00:03:50.280
  • REIGN, I, DANIEL, OBSERVED IN THE BOOKS THE NUMBER OF
  • 00:03:50.290 --> 00:03:54.140
  • THE YEARS WHICH WAS REVEALED AS THE WORD OF
  • 00:03:54.150 --> 00:03:57.020
  • THE LORD TO JEREMIAH THE PROPHET FOR THE COMPLETION
  • 00:03:57.030 --> 00:04:00.100
  • OF THE DESOLATIONS OF JERUSALEM,
  • 00:04:00.110 --> 00:04:02.060
  • NAMELY, SEVENTY YEARS."
  • 00:04:02.070 --> 00:04:03.270
  • NOW, JEREMIAH HAD WRITTEN 100 YEARS BEFORE THIS,
  • 00:04:03.280 --> 00:04:07.120
  • JEREMIAH HAD PROPHESIED EXACTLY HOW LONG THIS
  • 00:04:07.130 --> 00:04:09.260
  • CAPTIVITY WOULD BE.
  • 00:04:09.270 --> 00:04:11.020
  • IT WOULD BE 70 YEARS.
  • 00:04:11.030 --> 00:04:13.050
  • NOW, WHEN DANIEL WAS IN THE FIRST YEAR OF DARIUS'
  • 00:04:13.060 --> 00:04:15.240
  • REIGN, 67 OF THOSE YEARS HAD ALREADY PASSED.
  • 00:04:15.250 --> 00:04:19.110
  • AND SO DANIEL CONSULTED THE SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:04:19.120 --> 00:04:21.160
  • HE SAID THERE ARE 70 YEARS,
  • 00:04:21.170 --> 00:04:24.020
  • DANIEL THOUGHT THERE WERE ONLY 3 MORE YEARS TO GO
  • 00:04:24.030 --> 00:04:26.250
  • AND THEN I AM HOME-FREE.
  • 00:04:26.260 --> 00:04:28.050
  • I'LL BE ALLOWED TO GO BACK INTO JERUSALEM.
  • 00:04:28.060 --> 00:04:31.210
  • BUT DANIEL WASN'T SATISFIED JUST TO KNOW
  • 00:04:31.220 --> 00:04:33.260
  • THAT THERE WAS GOING TO BE AN IMMEDIATE FULFILLMENT
  • 00:04:33.270 --> 00:04:36.080
  • OF THE PROPHECY.
  • 00:04:36.090 --> 00:04:37.120
  • HE WANTED TO KNOW WHAT GOD WAS GOING TO DO WITH
  • 00:04:37.130 --> 00:04:40.160
  • ISRAEL, BECAUSE HE IS SO CONCERNED ABOUT ISRAEL AND
  • 00:04:40.170 --> 00:04:43.180
  • THE REPUTATION OF GOD.
  • 00:04:43.190 --> 00:04:45.060
  • AND SO HE PRAYS THIS PRAYER IN VERSES 3-19.
  • 00:04:45.070 --> 00:04:49.220
  • WE FIND IN THIS PRAYER SOME COMPONENTS OF
  • 00:04:49.230 --> 00:04:53.070
  • EFFECTIVE PRAYING.
  • 00:04:53.080 --> 00:04:54.290
  • FIRST OF ALL, NOTICE IT WAS A SINCERE PRAYER.
  • 00:04:55.000 --> 00:04:58.060
  • LOOK AT VERSE 3, "SO I GAVE MY ATTENTION
  • 00:04:58.070 --> 00:05:02.000
  • TO THE LORD."
  • 00:05:02.010 --> 00:05:03.100
  • UNDERLINE THAT, "I GAVE MY ATTENTION TO THE LORD."
  • 00:05:03.110 --> 00:05:09.110
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS?
  • 00:05:09.120 --> 00:05:11.150
  • IT MEANS DANIEL FOLDED UP HIS NEWSPAPER,
  • 00:05:11.160 --> 00:05:14.160
  • TURNED OFF THE TELEVISION SET,
  • 00:05:14.170 --> 00:05:17.040
  • LAID DOWN HIS SMARTPHONE,
  • 00:05:17.050 --> 00:05:20.030
  • AND HE GOT SERIOUS ABOUT PRAYING.
  • 00:05:20.040 --> 00:05:23.100
  • GOD BLESSES THE PRAYERS OF THOSE WHO PRAY INTENTLY.
  • 00:05:23.110 --> 00:05:28.010
  • IN FACT, IT WAS SO INTENT NOTICE WHAT HE DOES.
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:30.080
  • HE SAID HE ACCOMPANIED HIS PRAYER AND SUPPLICATIONS
  • 00:05:30.090 --> 00:05:32.120
  • WITH FASTING..
  • 00:05:32.130 --> 00:05:33.290
  • HE PUT ON SACKCLOTH.
  • 00:05:34.000 --> 00:05:35.090
  • THAT WAS A COARSE GARMENT THAT YOU PUT ON.
  • 00:05:35.100 --> 00:05:38.110
  • IT WASN'T FOR GOD'S BENEFIT.
  • 00:05:38.120 --> 00:05:39.230
  • IT WAS FOR DANIEL'S BENEFIT TO REMIND HIM OF
  • 00:05:39.240 --> 00:05:42.140
  • HIS SPIRITUAL POVERTY.
  • 00:05:42.150 --> 00:05:44.090
  • SPRINKLED HIMSELF WITH ASHES;
  • 00:05:44.100 --> 00:05:45.230
  • THAT WAS A WAY OF SHOWING MOURNING OVER YOUR SIN AND
  • 00:05:45.240 --> 00:05:50.050
  • OVER YOUR CONDITION.
  • 00:05:50.060 --> 00:05:52.030
  • HE PRAYED SINCERELY.
  • 00:05:52.040 --> 00:05:53.120
  • HE GAVE ATTENTION TO THE LORD.
  • 00:05:53.130 --> 00:05:55.060
  • SECONDLY, NOTICE IT WAS A SEARCHING PRAYER.
  • 00:05:55.070 --> 00:05:58.030
  • LOOK AT VERSE 5, HE SAID TO GOD,
  • 00:05:58.040 --> 00:06:00.070
  • "GOD, WE HAVE SINNED, COMMITTED INIQUITY,
  • 00:06:00.080 --> 00:06:03.140
  • ACTED WICKEDLY AND REBELLED,
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:05.140
  • EVEN TURNING ASIDE FROM YOUR COMMANDMENTS
  • 00:06:05.150 --> 00:06:08.110
  • AND ORDINANCES."
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:10.130
  • DANIEL UNDERSTOOD THAT BEFORE HE PRAYED AND ASKED
  • 00:06:10.140 --> 00:06:13.030
  • GOD FOR SOMETHING, HE NEEDED TO CONFESS
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:15.010
  • HIS OWN SIN.
  • 00:06:15.020 --> 00:06:16.170
  • THAT SAYS SOMETHING TO US: BEFORE WE LAUNCH INTO OUR
  • 00:06:16.180 --> 00:06:19.080
  • GIVE ME, GIVE ME, GIVE ME, GIVE ME,
  • 00:06:19.090 --> 00:06:21.020
  • GIVE ME; WE NEED TO TAKE TIME TO ACKNOWLEDGE OUR
  • 00:06:21.030 --> 00:06:24.230
  • SINFULNESS BEFORE GOD.
  • 00:06:24.240 --> 00:06:26.150
  • YOU KNOW, TO ME WHAT'S INTERESTING IS:
  • 00:06:26.160 --> 00:06:28.250
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT DANIEL IS THE ONLY MAJOR
  • 00:06:28.260 --> 00:06:31.060
  • OLD TESTAMENT CHARACTER WHO HAS NO MAJOR SIN THAT IS
  • 00:06:31.070 --> 00:06:34.210
  • RECORDED IN SCRIPTURE?
  • 00:06:34.220 --> 00:06:36.200
  • NO POLYGAMY; NO ADULTERY; NO MURDER - NONE OF THOSE
  • 00:06:36.210 --> 00:06:40.290
  • THINGS THAT YOU ASCRIBED TO THESE OTHER
  • 00:06:41.000 --> 00:06:42.280
  • GREAT MEN OF FAITH IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:06:42.290 --> 00:06:44.270
  • DANIEL HAD NO MAJOR SIN, BUT HE KNEW HE WAS STILL SINFUL.
  • 00:06:44.280 --> 00:06:50.260
  • THE FACT IS THE CLOSER YOU GET TO GOD,
  • 00:06:50.270 --> 00:06:54.060
  • THE MORE AWARE YOU ARE OF YOUR OWN SINFULNESS.
  • 00:06:54.070 --> 00:06:57.060
  • DANIEL REALIZED HE NEEDED GOD'S FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:07:00.130
  • HE AND THE NATION AS A WHOLE,
  • 00:07:00.140 --> 00:07:01.250
  • SO HE CONFESSED HIS SIN.
  • 00:07:01.260 --> 00:07:03.160
  • AND THIRDLY, IT WAS A SPECIFIC PRAYER.
  • 00:07:03.170 --> 00:07:06.090
  • LOOK AT VERSES 16-17, "O LORD,
  • 00:07:06.100 --> 00:07:08.220
  • IN ACCORDANCE WITH ALL YOUR RIGHTEOUS ACTS,
  • 00:07:08.230 --> 00:07:10.290
  • LET NOW YOUR ANGER AND YOUR WRATH TURN AWAY FROM
  • 00:07:11.000 --> 00:07:13.260
  • YOUR CITY JERUSALEM."
  • 00:07:13.270 --> 00:07:15.090
  • REMEMBER JERUSALEM WAS AN ASH HEAP;
  • 00:07:15.100 --> 00:07:17.240
  • IT WAS A RUBBLE; THE TEMPLE HAD BEEN
  • 00:07:17.250 --> 00:07:19.030
  • DESTROYED 70 YEARS EARLIER.
  • 00:07:19.040 --> 00:07:20.280
  • "TURN AWAY YOUR WRATH AGAINST JERUSALEM,
  • 00:07:20.290 --> 00:07:24.270
  • YOUR HOLY MOUNTAIN; BECAUSE OF OUR SINS AND
  • 00:07:24.280 --> 00:07:27.220
  • THE INIQUITIES OF OUR FATHERS,
  • 00:07:27.230 --> 00:07:29.080
  • JERUSALEM AND YOUR PEOPLE HAVE BECOME A REPROACH TO
  • 00:07:29.090 --> 00:07:32.070
  • ALL THOSE AROUND US."
  • 00:07:32.080 --> 00:07:33.150
  • THE HEATHEN WERE LAUGHING AT THE ISRAELITES.
  • 00:07:33.160 --> 00:07:36.220
  • THEY WERE LAUGHING AT THE GOD OF THE ISRAELITES
  • 00:07:36.230 --> 00:07:39.090
  • FOR HIS FAILURE TO KEEP HIS PROMISE AND MAKE ISRAEL
  • 00:07:39.100 --> 00:07:42.020
  • A GREAT NATION. VERSE 17,
  • 00:07:42.030 --> 00:07:44.010
  • "SO NOW, OUR GOD,
  • 00:07:44.020 --> 00:07:45.140
  • LISTEN TO THE PRAYER OF YOUR SERVANT AND TO HIS
  • 00:07:45.150 --> 00:07:48.030
  • SUPPLICATIONS, AND FOR YOUR SAKE," NOT MY SAKE
  • 00:07:48.040 --> 00:07:51.260
  • GOD, "FOR YOUR SAKE, O LORD,
  • 00:07:51.270 --> 00:07:53.280
  • LET YOUR FACE SHINE ON YOUR DESOLATE SANCTUARY."
  • 00:07:53.290 --> 00:07:58.240
  • LOOK AT VERSE 19, "O LORD, HEAR!
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:01.020
  • O LORD, FORGIVE!
  • 00:08:01.030 --> 00:08:02.240
  • O LORD, LISTEN AND TAKE ACTION!
  • 00:08:02.250 --> 00:08:05.090
  • FOR YOUR OWN SAKE, O MY GOD,
  • 00:08:05.100 --> 00:08:07.280
  • DO NOT DELAY, BECAUSE YOUR CITY AND YOUR PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:08:07.290 --> 00:08:10.200
  • CALLED BY YOUR NAME."
  • 00:08:10.210 --> 00:08:13.200
  • YOU SEE, GOD'S REPUTATION WAS ON THE LINE HERE.
  • 00:08:13.210 --> 00:08:16.090
  • GOD HAD PROMISED AN EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH
  • 00:08:16.100 --> 00:08:18.120
  • ISRAEL AND NOW IT LOOKED LIKE THAT COVENANT
  • 00:08:18.130 --> 00:08:20.090
  • HAD BEEN BROKEN.
  • 00:08:20.100 --> 00:08:21.230
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT THE GOD OF ISRAEL WAS BEING
  • 00:08:21.240 --> 00:08:23.250
  • BLASPHEMED.
  • 00:08:23.260 --> 00:08:24.220
  • HE SAID: THAT'S WHY GOD I WANT YOU TO ACT.
  • 00:08:24.230 --> 00:08:26.080
  • I WANT YOU TO RESTORE ISRAEL JUST AS YOU
  • 00:08:26.090 --> 00:08:29.180
  • PROMISED; TO REBUILD YOUR SANCTUARY.
  • 00:08:29.190 --> 00:08:32.070
  • GOD WOULD YOU PLEASE DO THIS?
  • 00:08:32.080 --> 00:08:34.110
  • THAT WAS THE PRAYER DANIEL PRAYED.
  • 00:08:34.120 --> 00:08:36.110
  • AND GOD ANSWERED THAT PRAYER IN A WAY
  • 00:08:36.120 --> 00:08:38.250
  • FAR MORE THAN DANIEL EXPERIENCED
  • 00:08:38.260 --> 00:08:41.040
  • GOD'S ANSWER TO THE PRAYER,
  • 00:08:41.050 --> 00:08:43.190
  • HE SHOWED DANIEL NOT JUST WHAT HE WAS GOING TO DO IN
  • 00:08:43.200 --> 00:08:46.080
  • THE SHORT TERM, BUT HE REVEALED TO DANIEL GOD'S
  • 00:08:46.090 --> 00:08:49.270
  • ENTIRE PLAN FOR ISRAEL UNTIL THE END OF TIME.
  • 00:08:49.280 --> 00:08:53.200
  • AND IN THAT PLAN WE FIND GOD'S PLANS FOR ALL THE
  • 00:08:53.210 --> 00:08:56.260
  • NATIONS OF THE WORLD AND FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND I.
  • 00:08:56.270 --> 00:09:00.180
  • SO, LET'S LOOK AT THE ANSWER TO PRAYER,
  • 00:09:00.190 --> 00:09:02.280
  • THE REVELATION OF DANIEL'S VISION.
  • 00:09:02.290 --> 00:09:06.040
  • LOOK AT, FIRST OF ALL, GOD'S MESSENGER THAT CAME
  • 00:09:06.050 --> 00:09:08.200
  • TO DELIVER THE ANSWER, THE VISION TO DANIEL ABOUT
  • 00:09:08.210 --> 00:09:11.180
  • WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO DANIEL
  • 00:09:11.190 --> 00:09:12.260
  • AND THE NATION OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:09:12.270 --> 00:09:15.070
  • LOOK AT VERSE 21, "WHILE I WAS STILL SPEAKING IN
  • 00:09:15.080 --> 00:09:17.190
  • PRAYER, THEN THE MAN GABRIEL,
  • 00:09:17.200 --> 00:09:20.230
  • WHOM I HAD SEEN IN THE VISION PREVIOUSLY,
  • 00:09:20.240 --> 00:09:22.190
  • CAME TO ME IN MY EXTREME WEARINESS ABOUT THE TIME
  • 00:09:22.200 --> 00:09:25.180
  • OF THE EVENING OFFERING."
  • 00:09:25.190 --> 00:09:27.110
  • THE VISION CAME THROUGH THE ANGEL GABRIEL.
  • 00:09:27.120 --> 00:09:29.110
  • REMEMBER HE AND MICHAEL ARE THE ONLY ANGELS THAT
  • 00:09:29.120 --> 00:09:32.070
  • ARE ACTUALLY NAMED, OTHER THAN LUCIFER THE FALLEN
  • 00:09:32.080 --> 00:09:35.220
  • ANGEL WHO BECAME SATAN.
  • 00:09:35.230 --> 00:09:37.240
  • BUT IT WAS GABRIEL WHO WAS THE INSTRUMENT BY WHICH
  • 00:09:37.250 --> 00:09:41.090
  • THIS VISION CAME.
  • 00:09:41.100 --> 00:09:43.040
  • AND NOW WE FIND THE MESSAGE ITSELF,
  • 00:09:43.050 --> 00:09:46.110
  • THE VISION OF WHAT GOD WAS GOING TO DO NOT JUST IN
  • 00:09:46.120 --> 00:09:49.030
  • THE SHORT TERM, BUT ULTIMATELY FOR ISRAEL.
  • 00:09:49.040 --> 00:09:51.250
  • NOW, LOOK AT VERSE 24, WE'RE GOING TO GET A
  • 00:09:51.260 --> 00:09:53.250
  • VISION OF ALL OF GOD'S PLAN FOR ISRAEL.
  • 00:09:53.260 --> 00:09:56.290
  • VERSE 24, "SEVENTY WEEKS HAVE BEEN DECREED FOR YOUR
  • 00:09:57.000 --> 00:10:02.170
  • PEOPLE AND YOUR HOLY CITY."
  • 00:10:02.180 --> 00:10:05.170
  • NOW THAT WORD "WEEKS" IS AN UNFORTUNATE ENGLISH
  • 00:10:05.180 --> 00:10:09.110
  • TRANSLATION, BECAUSE THAT'S NOT WHAT IT SAYS
  • 00:10:09.120 --> 00:10:11.180
  • IN THE HEBREW TEXT.
  • 00:10:11.190 --> 00:10:12.260
  • SOME EDITOR JUST PUT THAT IN THERE.
  • 00:10:12.270 --> 00:10:15.070
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THE WORD TRANSLATED "WEEKS"
  • 00:10:15.080 --> 00:10:17.120
  • ACTUALLY MEANS?
  • 00:10:17.130 --> 00:10:18.090
  • IT MEANS "SEVENS".
  • 00:10:18.100 --> 00:10:20.100
  • LITERALLY WHAT GABRIEL SAID TO DANIEL WAS:
  • 00:10:20.110 --> 00:10:23.080
  • SEVENTY SEVENS HAD BEEN DECREED FOR YOUR PEOPLE
  • 00:10:23.090 --> 00:10:27.170
  • AND YOUR HOLY CITY."
  • 00:10:27.180 --> 00:10:29.050
  • NOW, I WANT YOU TO IMAGINE THAT GOD HAS A STOPWATCH, OK.
  • 00:10:29.060 --> 00:10:33.010
  • AND ON THAT STOPWATCH IT STARTS AT 490 AND IT'S
  • 00:10:33.020 --> 00:10:36.160
  • GOING TO COUNT DOWN.
  • 00:10:36.170 --> 00:10:38.010
  • WHAT GOD WAS SAYING TO DANIEL WAS IN THE NEXT 490
  • 00:10:38.020 --> 00:10:42.020
  • YEARS, OVER A PERIOD OF 490 YEARS I'M GOING TO
  • 00:10:42.030 --> 00:10:45.270
  • COMPLETE MY PLAN FOR ISRAEL AND THE ENTIRE WORLD.
  • 00:10:45.280 --> 00:10:50.200
  • AND NOTICE WHAT HE SAYS HERE IN VERSE 24,
  • 00:10:50.210 --> 00:10:52.100
  • HE SAYS SPECIFICALLY IN THESE 490 YEARS,
  • 00:10:52.110 --> 00:10:55.230
  • 6 THINGS ARE GOING TO BE ACCOMPLISHED.
  • 00:10:55.240 --> 00:10:58.020
  • FIRST OF ALL, TO FINISH THE TRANSGRESSION;
  • 00:10:58.030 --> 00:11:00.260
  • THAT IS AN END TO ISRAEL'S BELIEF AND APOSTASY.
  • 00:11:00.270 --> 00:11:04.160
  • SECONDLY, HE SAYS IN VERSE 24,
  • 00:11:04.170 --> 00:11:06.050
  • DURING THAT TIME TO MAKE AN END OF SIN.
  • 00:11:06.060 --> 00:11:08.160
  • THAT MEANS AN END OF THE SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM THAT
  • 00:11:08.170 --> 00:11:11.100
  • THE JEWS HAD OBSERVED.
  • 00:11:11.110 --> 00:11:13.030
  • NUMBER THREE, DURING THAT TIME THERE WILL BE AN
  • 00:11:13.040 --> 00:11:16.090
  • ATONEMENT MADE FOR INIQUITY.
  • 00:11:16.100 --> 00:11:18.290
  • THAT WORD "ATONEMENT" IS THE HEBREW WORD THAT IS
  • 00:11:19.000 --> 00:11:21.270
  • USED TO DESCRIBE THE PITCH THAT WAS PLACED ON NOAH'S
  • 00:11:21.280 --> 00:11:25.090
  • ARK TO KEEP THE WATER OUT.
  • 00:11:25.100 --> 00:11:26.240
  • OF COURSE THAT WAS A PICTURE OF THE BLOOD OF
  • 00:11:26.250 --> 00:11:29.220
  • JESUS CHRIST BY WHICH OUR SINS ARE ATONED.
  • 00:11:29.230 --> 00:11:33.120
  • THEY ARE COVERED OVER BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:11:33.130 --> 00:11:37.000
  • IN OTHER WORDS, DURING THESE 490 YEARS THERE
  • 00:11:37.010 --> 00:11:39.060
  • WOULD BE AN ATONEMENT MADE FOR SINS.
  • 00:11:39.070 --> 00:11:41.200
  • THAT'S OBVIOUSLY A REFERENCE TO THE DEATH OF
  • 00:11:41.210 --> 00:11:43.180
  • CHRIST THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:11:43.190 --> 00:11:45.020
  • NUMBER FOUR, DURING THIS TIME TO BRING AN
  • 00:11:45.030 --> 00:11:47.000
  • EVERLASTING RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:11:47.010 --> 00:11:48.260
  • THAT'S A REFERENCE TO THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST.
  • 00:11:48.270 --> 00:11:51.020
  • ISAIAH 9, WHEN HE SETS UP HIS PERFECT KINGDOM IN THE
  • 00:11:51.030 --> 00:11:54.140
  • WORLD THROUGH THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:11:54.150 --> 00:11:55.240
  • NUMBER FIVE, TO SEAL UP THE VISION IN THE PROPHECY.
  • 00:11:55.250 --> 00:11:58.250
  • THAT IS, AT THE END OF THESE 490 YEARS THERE'LL
  • 00:11:58.260 --> 00:12:01.160
  • NO LONGER BE A NEED FOR VISIONS AND PROPHECY -
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:03.270
  • EVERYTHING WILL HAVE BEEN FULFILLED.
  • 00:12:03.280 --> 00:12:06.050
  • NUMBER SIX, TO ANOINT THE MOST HOLY PLACE.
  • 00:12:06.060 --> 00:12:09.060
  • WHAT WAS THE MOST HOLY PLACE TO THE JEWS?
  • 00:12:09.070 --> 00:12:11.200
  • IT WAS THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:12:11.210 --> 00:12:12.170
  • OF COURSE NOW THE TEMPLE WAS IN SHAMBLES,
  • 00:12:12.180 --> 00:12:16.140
  • BUT THIS PROPHECY SAID OVER THE NEXT 490 YEARS
  • 00:12:16.150 --> 00:12:19.160
  • THIS TEMPLE IS GOING TO BE BUILT AND IT'S GOING TO BE
  • 00:12:19.170 --> 00:12:22.090
  • ANOINTED AS A HOLY PLACE.
  • 00:12:22.100 --> 00:12:24.050
  • NOW STAY WITH ME.
  • 00:12:24.060 --> 00:12:25.210
  • WHAT GOD IS SAYING IS: IN 490 YEARS I'M GOING TO
  • 00:12:25.220 --> 00:12:28.130
  • FULFILL ALL OF THESE PROPHECIES.
  • 00:12:28.140 --> 00:12:31.040
  • SOME OF THESE PROPHECIES WERE FULFILLED IMMEDIATELY
  • 00:12:31.050 --> 00:12:33.240
  • WHEN ISRAEL RETURNED FROM EXILE.
  • 00:12:33.250 --> 00:12:36.020
  • SOME OF THEM WERE FULFILLED IN THE FIRST
  • 00:12:36.030 --> 00:12:37.220
  • COMING OF CHRIST, BUT SOME OF THEM ARE STILL FUTURE
  • 00:12:37.230 --> 00:12:40.080
  • TO BE FULFILLED WHEN CHRIST RETURNS AGAIN.
  • 00:12:40.090 --> 00:12:43.030
  • NOW, ALRIGHT, I WANT YOU TO PUT YOUR SPIRITUAL
  • 00:12:43.040 --> 00:12:48.040
  • SCUBA GEAR ON, OK.
  • 00:12:48.050 --> 00:12:50.100
  • BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO ACTUALLY
  • 00:12:50.110 --> 00:12:51.230
  • GO INTO NOW THESE 490 YEARS.
  • 00:12:51.240 --> 00:12:54.290
  • LOOK AT VERSE 25 WITH ME, "SO YOU ARE TO KNOW AND
  • 00:12:55.000 --> 00:12:59.100
  • DISCERN THAT FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE ISSUING
  • 00:12:59.110 --> 00:13:02.220
  • OF A DECREE TO RESTORE AND REBUILD JERUSALEM UNTIL
  • 00:13:02.230 --> 00:13:06.220
  • MESSIAH THE PRINCE THERE WILL BE SEVEN WEEKS AND
  • 00:13:06.230 --> 00:13:09.260
  • SIXTY-TWO WEEKS."
  • 00:13:09.270 --> 00:13:11.030
  • NOW HERE IS THE QUESTION: WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN?
  • 00:13:11.040 --> 00:13:13.100
  • DID YOU KNOW WE KNOW EXACTLY WHEN
  • 00:13:13.110 --> 00:13:14.270
  • THAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:13:14.280 --> 00:13:15.290
  • WE KNOW THE MONTH, WE KNOW THE DAY,
  • 00:13:16.000 --> 00:13:17.090
  • WE KNOW THE YEAR FROM EXTRA-BIBLICAL HISTORY.
  • 00:13:17.100 --> 00:13:19.190
  • IT HAPPENED ON MARCH 14, 445 B.C.
  • 00:13:19.200 --> 00:13:24.090
  • SEE THE FACT IS, EARLIER IT WAS CYRUS WHO
  • 00:13:24.100 --> 00:13:27.230
  • AUTHORIZED THE REBUILDING OF THE TEMPLE;
  • 00:13:27.240 --> 00:13:30.030
  • THAT HAPPENED IN 538 B.C., BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT
  • 00:13:30.040 --> 00:13:33.110
  • GABRIEL SAID.
  • 00:13:33.120 --> 00:13:34.120
  • HE SAID: WHEN THE DECREE GOES FORTH TO REBUILD THE
  • 00:13:34.130 --> 00:13:37.200
  • CITY OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:13:37.210 --> 00:13:39.250
  • THAT HAPPENED ABOUT 80 YEARS LATER.
  • 00:13:39.260 --> 00:13:41.100
  • AND IT HAPPENED ON MARCH 14, 445 B.C.
  • 00:13:41.110 --> 00:13:45.150
  • IT WAS UNDER THE PERSIAN KING ARTAXERXES
  • 00:13:45.160 --> 00:13:47.160
  • LONGIMANUS, HE IS THE ONE WHO ISSUED THE DECREE THAT
  • 00:13:47.170 --> 00:13:50.290
  • ALLOWED THE JEWS TO LEAVE BABYLON AND RETURN TO
  • 00:13:51.000 --> 00:13:54.160
  • REBUILD THE CITY OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:13:54.170 --> 00:13:56.290
  • NOW, NOTICE WHAT GABRIEL SAID: FROM THE TIME THAT
  • 00:13:57.000 --> 00:14:00.060
  • HAPPENS UNTIL MESSIAH THE PRINCE - THERE WILL BE A
  • 00:14:00.070 --> 00:14:05.260
  • PERIOD OF 62 WEEKS OF YEARS,
  • 00:14:05.270 --> 00:14:09.110
  • 434 YEARS PLUS THE PREVIOUS 49 YEARS.
  • 00:14:09.120 --> 00:14:12.270
  • NOW THE EASY WAY TO REMEMBER THIS IS
  • 00:14:12.280 --> 00:14:15.150
  • WHAT IS 7 + 62, CLASS?
  • 00:14:15.160 --> 00:14:18.170
  • 69.
  • 00:14:18.180 --> 00:14:20.070
  • SIXTY-NINE 7'S OR 69 WEEKS OF YEARS THAT IS 483 YEARS.
  • 00:14:20.080 --> 00:14:27.130
  • HE SAYS: FROM THE TIME THIS DECREE IS ISSUED,
  • 00:14:27.140 --> 00:14:32.000
  • AND IT WOULD HAPPEN IN 445 B.C.,
  • 00:14:32.010 --> 00:14:33.220
  • UNTIL THE TIME OF MESSIAH THE PRINCE THERE WILL BE
  • 00:14:33.230 --> 00:14:38.090
  • 483 YEARS THAT WILL HAVE COUNTED DOWN
  • 00:14:38.100 --> 00:14:40.280
  • ON THIS STOPWATCH.
  • 00:14:40.290 --> 00:14:42.180
  • NOW, WHEN WAS MESSIAH THE PRINCE?
  • 00:14:42.190 --> 00:14:45.270
  • STAY WITH ME ON THIS?
  • 00:14:45.280 --> 00:14:46.250
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU GO THROUGH THE CALENDAR AND
  • 00:14:46.260 --> 00:14:49.050
  • UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED, WE KNOW THAT THE DECREE
  • 00:14:49.060 --> 00:14:51.240
  • WAS ISSUED ON THE FIRST OF NISAN OR MARCH 14, 445 B.C.
  • 00:14:51.250 --> 00:14:57.250
  • AND WE KNOW THAT MESSIAH THE PRINCE WAS PRESENTED
  • 00:14:57.260 --> 00:15:01.050
  • ON APRIL 2, 32 A.D.
  • 00:15:01.060 --> 00:15:03.230
  • WE CALL IT PALM SUNDAY BUT BETWEEN THAT TIME THAT THE
  • 00:15:03.240 --> 00:15:07.050
  • DECREE WAS ISSUED UNTIL THAT DAY,
  • 00:15:07.060 --> 00:15:09.130
  • PALM SUNDAY, WAS EXACTLY TO THE DATE 483 YEARS.
  • 00:15:09.140 --> 00:15:16.110
  • NOW THAT IS AMAZING!
  • 00:15:16.120 --> 00:15:19.010
  • THAT DANIEL WRITING 500 YEARS BEFORE THE CASE
  • 00:15:19.020 --> 00:15:23.220
  • COULD LOOK DOWN THE CORRIDOR OF HISTORY AND
  • 00:15:23.230 --> 00:15:26.190
  • SEE BOTH OF EVENTS TAKING PLACE AND IT HAPPENED TO
  • 00:15:26.200 --> 00:15:29.230
  • THE VERY DAY GOD HAD PREDICTED.
  • 00:15:29.240 --> 00:15:31.290
  • I THINK THAT IS WHY WHEN JESUS WAS MAKING HIS
  • 00:15:32.000 --> 00:15:34.230
  • TRIUMPHAL ENTRY-AND REMEMBER WHEN THE JEWS HAD
  • 00:15:34.240 --> 00:15:37.170
  • REJECTED HIM HE CRIED OVER JERUSALEM.
  • 00:15:37.180 --> 00:15:39.230
  • AND THE PASSAGE WE JUST READ THIS MORNING IN LUKE
  • 00:15:39.240 --> 00:15:42.210
  • 19:42 HE SAID, "IF YOU HAD KNOWN IN THIS DAY EVEN YOU
  • 00:15:42.220 --> 00:15:50.220
  • THE THINGS WHICH MAKE FOR PEACE BUT NOW THEY HAVE
  • 00:15:50.230 --> 00:15:53.060
  • BEEN HIDDEN FROM YOUR EYES."
  • 00:15:53.070 --> 00:15:55.020
  • TO JESUS THERE WAS SOMETHING SIGNIFICANT
  • 00:15:55.030 --> 00:15:57.100
  • ABOUT THIS DAY.
  • 00:15:57.110 --> 00:16:00.060
  • WHAT WAS SIGNIFICANT WAS IT WAS THE DAY DANIEL HAD
  • 00:16:00.070 --> 00:16:03.130
  • PROPHESIED ABOUT 550 YEARS BEFORE THE FACT.
  • 00:16:03.140 --> 00:16:07.030
  • NOW, LET'S LOOK AT THIS CHART HERE.
  • 00:16:07.040 --> 00:16:10.220
  • DANIEL SAID THAT FROM THE TIME THE DECREE IS ISSUED
  • 00:16:10.230 --> 00:16:14.090
  • UNTIL MESSIAH THE PRINCE IS PRESENTED 483 YEARS
  • 00:16:14.100 --> 00:16:18.150
  • WILL HAVE ELAPSED.
  • 00:16:18.160 --> 00:16:20.090
  • THERE ARE SEVEN YEARS LEFT FOR GOD TO ACCOMPLISH HIS
  • 00:16:20.100 --> 00:16:23.070
  • PURPOSE FOR ISRAEL AND THE WORLD.
  • 00:16:23.080 --> 00:16:25.230
  • AND THERE IS AN INTERVAL IN BETWEEN THAT FIRST FOUR
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:29.140
  • HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-THREE YEARS AND THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS.
  • 00:16:29.150 --> 00:16:33.000
  • GOD HAS STOPPED THAT STOPWATCH.
  • 00:16:33.010 --> 00:16:35.010
  • WE ARE LIVING IN THE TIME OF THE CHURCH WHEN
  • 00:16:35.020 --> 00:16:37.050
  • GENTILES CAN BE SAVED.
  • 00:16:37.060 --> 00:16:39.010
  • THE CHURCH AGE WILL END WITH THE RAPTURE OF THE
  • 00:16:39.020 --> 00:16:41.030
  • CHURCH WHEN WE'RE TAKEN TO BE WITH THE LORD IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:16:41.040 --> 00:16:43.210
  • AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS GUESS WHAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:16:43.220 --> 00:16:45.260
  • GOD PRESSES THAT STOP WATCH FOR THOSE FINAL
  • 00:16:45.270 --> 00:16:49.000
  • SEVEN REMAINING YEARS THAT GOD HAS LEFT
  • 00:16:49.010 --> 00:16:52.110
  • TO DEAL WITH ISRAEL.
  • 00:16:52.120 --> 00:16:54.020
  • IT'S THAT FINAL SEVEN YEARS THAT IS TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:16:54.030 --> 00:16:56.210
  • IN THE BIBLE AS DANIEL'S 70TH WEEK.
  • 00:16:56.220 --> 00:17:00.020
  • SOMETIMES WE CALL IT THE GREAT TRIBULATION.
  • 00:17:00.030 --> 00:17:02.010
  • SOMETIMES IT'S CALLED THE TIME OF JACOB'S DISTRESS.
  • 00:17:02.020 --> 00:17:05.040
  • BUT ALL OF IT IS REFERRING TO THAT FINAL SEVEN YEARS
  • 00:17:05.050 --> 00:17:07.290
  • ON GOD'S STOPWATCH-THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS THAT
  • 00:17:08.000 --> 00:17:11.170
  • WILL BEGIN WITH THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:17:11.180 --> 00:17:13.150
  • NOW, LOOK AT VERSE 27.
  • 00:17:13.160 --> 00:17:14.260
  • "AND HE WILL MAKE A FIRM COVENANT WITH THE MANY FOR
  • 00:17:14.270 --> 00:17:18.190
  • ONE WEEK OR SEVEN YEARS."
  • 00:17:18.200 --> 00:17:20.130
  • BUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK WHAT WILL HE DO?
  • 00:17:20.140 --> 00:17:23.010
  • HE WILL PUT A STOP TO SACRIFICE AND GRAIN
  • 00:17:23.020 --> 00:17:25.230
  • OFFERING, AND ON THE WING OF ABOMINATIONS WILL COME
  • 00:17:25.240 --> 00:17:28.190
  • ONE WHO MAKES DESOLATE EVEN UNTIL A COMPLETE
  • 00:17:28.200 --> 00:17:32.110
  • DESTRUCTION ONE THAT IS DECREED IS POURED OUT ON
  • 00:17:32.120 --> 00:17:35.180
  • ONE WHO MAKES DESOLATE."
  • 00:17:35.190 --> 00:17:37.150
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IN DANIEL.
  • 00:17:37.160 --> 00:17:39.160
  • JESUS SAID IT IN MATTHEW 24.
  • 00:17:39.170 --> 00:17:41.110
  • JOHN SAID IT IN REVELATION THAT HALF-WAY THROUGH THAT
  • 00:17:41.120 --> 00:17:44.170
  • SEVEN YEAR PERIOD ANTICHRIST WILL TURN
  • 00:17:44.180 --> 00:17:47.040
  • AGAINST ISRAEL.
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:48.120
  • HE WILL TURN AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF GOD.
  • 00:17:48.130 --> 00:17:50.000
  • HE WILL BREAK THAT PEACE COVENANT,
  • 00:17:50.010 --> 00:17:53.000
  • AND FOR THE FINAL THREE AND HALF YEARS OF EARTH'S
  • 00:17:53.010 --> 00:17:55.110
  • HISTORY THERE WILL BE AN UNBELIEVABLE PERSECUTION
  • 00:17:55.120 --> 00:17:58.120
  • OF GOD'S PEOPLE: THE JEWS AND CHRISTIAN GENTILES ALIKE.
  • 00:17:58.130 --> 00:18:02.170
  • IT'S A PERSECUTION LIKE NO ONE HAS SEEN BEFORE.
  • 00:18:02.180 --> 00:18:05.230
  • THE GREAT TRIBULATION.
  • 00:18:05.240 --> 00:18:08.160
  • JESUS SPOKE OF IT IN MATTHEW 24.
  • 00:18:08.170 --> 00:18:11.240
  • REMEMBER WHAT HE SAID TALKING ABOUT THE END
  • 00:18:11.250 --> 00:18:14.070
  • TIMES; THE EVENTS THAT WOULD BE FOLLOWED BY HIS
  • 00:18:14.080 --> 00:18:17.260
  • SECOND COMING.
  • 00:18:17.270 --> 00:18:18.210
  • HE WASN'T SPEAKING ABOUT PAST HISTORY.
  • 00:18:18.220 --> 00:18:20.220
  • HE WAS LOOKING TO SOMETHING THAT WAS FUTURE
  • 00:18:20.230 --> 00:18:22.220
  • AND SURROUNDED HIS RETURN.
  • 00:18:22.230 --> 00:18:24.260
  • MATTHEW 24:15-16, HE SAID, "THEREFORE WHEN YOU SEE
  • 00:18:24.270 --> 00:18:29.150
  • THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION WHICH WAS
  • 00:18:29.160 --> 00:18:32.160
  • SPOKEN OF THROUGH DANIEL THE PROPHET,
  • 00:18:32.170 --> 00:18:34.270
  • STANDING IN THE HOLY PLACE LET THE READER UNDERSTAND
  • 00:18:34.280 --> 00:18:38.080
  • THEN THOSE WHO ARE IN JUDEA MUST FLEE
  • 00:18:38.090 --> 00:18:40.070
  • TO THE MOUNTAINS.
  • 00:18:40.080 --> 00:18:41.170
  • FOR THEN THERE WILL BE A GREAT TRIBULATION SUCH AS
  • 00:18:41.180 --> 00:18:44.140
  • HAS NOT OCCURRED SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD
  • 00:18:44.150 --> 00:18:46.200
  • UNTIL NOW NOR EVER WILL."
  • 00:18:46.210 --> 00:18:49.030
  • I WANT YOU TO NOTICE SOMETHING HERE.
  • 00:18:49.040 --> 00:18:51.010
  • IT IS JESUS WHO SAID THE BOOK OF DANIEL HASN'T BEEN
  • 00:18:51.020 --> 00:18:54.030
  • FULFILLED YET.
  • 00:18:54.040 --> 00:18:55.190
  • THERE IS STILL PROPHECY YET TO BE FULFILLED.
  • 00:18:55.200 --> 00:18:58.290
  • AND IT WON'T BE FULFILLED IN 38 YEARS FROM NOW WHEN
  • 00:18:59.000 --> 00:19:02.120
  • TITUS DESTROYS THIS CITY.
  • 00:19:02.130 --> 00:19:04.150
  • NO.
  • 00:19:04.160 --> 00:19:05.130
  • THE EVENTS DANIEL SPOKE ABOUT ARE ULTIMATELY
  • 00:19:05.140 --> 00:19:08.030
  • REFERRING TO THE EVENTS THAT WILL PRECEDE
  • 00:19:08.040 --> 00:19:10.250
  • MY SECOND COMING.
  • 00:19:10.260 --> 00:19:12.180
  • THAT'S WHAT JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF SAID.
  • 00:19:12.190 --> 00:19:14.190
  • THERE IS GOING TO BE A TIME OF PERSECUTION LIKE
  • 00:19:14.200 --> 00:19:17.090
  • BELIEVERS HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED WHO ARE HERE
  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:19.270
  • DURING THAT TIME.
  • 00:19:19.280 --> 00:19:21.090
  • AND ONLY THEN, ONLY WHEN GOD HAS FINISHED THOSE
  • 00:19:21.100 --> 00:19:24.250
  • SEVEN YEARS, ONLY WHEN THAT STOPWATCH IS COUNTED
  • 00:19:24.260 --> 00:19:28.010
  • DOWN TO THE FINAL YEAR WILL CHRIST RETURN
  • 00:19:28.020 --> 00:19:31.080
  • AND SET UP HIS EVERLASTING KINGDOM.
  • 00:19:31.090 --> 00:19:34.100
  • THAT IS DANIEL'S 70TH WEEK.
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:37.100
  • THAT IS THE TIME OF JACOB'S TROUBLE THAT THE
  • 00:19:37.110 --> 00:19:39.120
  • BIBLE PROPHESIES ABOUT.
  • 00:19:39.130 --> 00:19:42.060
  • LET ME SHARE WITH YOU TODAY IN CLOSING
  • 00:19:42.070 --> 00:19:44.030
  • TWO PRACTICAL PRINCIPLES THAT COME FROM
  • 00:19:44.040 --> 00:19:47.110
  • DANIEL CHAPTER NINE.
  • 00:19:47.120 --> 00:19:49.180
  • PRINCIPLE NUMBER ONE: GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:49.190 --> 00:19:56.070
  • GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:56.080 --> 00:19:58.190
  • HE HAD A PLAN OF HIS PEOPLE ISRAEL.
  • 00:19:58.200 --> 00:20:00.240
  • AND BY THE WAY IT WAS A PLAN THAT WAS BIG ENOUGH
  • 00:20:00.250 --> 00:20:02.220
  • TO INCLUDE ISRAEL'S REJECTION OF CHRIST,
  • 00:20:02.230 --> 00:20:06.150
  • THEIR CRUCIFIXION OF THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:20:06.160 --> 00:20:08.210
  • IT WAS BIG ENOUGH TO INCLUDE THE PERSECUTION OF
  • 00:20:08.220 --> 00:20:11.160
  • ANTIOCHUS EPIPHANES AND EVERYONE WHO FOLLOWED HIM.
  • 00:20:11.170 --> 00:20:16.020
  • IT IS A PLAN BIG ENOUGH TO EVEN INCLUDE
  • 00:20:16.030 --> 00:20:18.040
  • THE ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:20:18.050 --> 00:20:19.250
  • GOD HAD A PLAN FOR ISRAEL.
  • 00:20:19.260 --> 00:20:23.000
  • GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOU AS WELL.
  • 00:20:23.010 --> 00:20:25.060
  • AND GOD'S PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE-THIS IS SO
  • 00:20:25.070 --> 00:20:27.190
  • ENCOURAGING TO ME-IS BIG ENOUGH NOT ONLY TO INCLUDE
  • 00:20:27.200 --> 00:20:32.250
  • THE MISTREATMENT BY OTHER PEOPLE AGAINST YOU
  • 00:20:32.260 --> 00:20:35.170
  • JUST LIKE PEOPLE MISTREATED THE JEWS.
  • 00:20:35.180 --> 00:20:38.080
  • GOD'S PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE INCLUDES THE MISTREATMENT,
  • 00:20:38.090 --> 00:20:41.030
  • THE UNFAIR, UNJUST MISTREATMENT YOU RECEIVE.
  • 00:20:41.040 --> 00:20:44.180
  • GOD'S PLAN IS ALSO BIG ENOUGH TO INCLUDE YOUR
  • 00:20:44.190 --> 00:20:47.120
  • MISTAKES AND YOUR SINS AGAINST GOD.
  • 00:20:47.130 --> 00:20:50.280
  • JUST LIKE GOD'S PLAN FOR ISRAEL WAS BIG ENOUGH TO
  • 00:20:50.290 --> 00:20:53.120
  • INCLUDE ISRAEL'S REBELLION AGAINST GOD.
  • 00:20:53.130 --> 00:20:55.160
  • GOD IS ABLE TO TAKE ALL OF THOSE THINGS AND WORK THEM
  • 00:20:55.170 --> 00:20:58.240
  • TOGETHER TO ACCOMPLISH HIS PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:20:58.250 --> 00:21:02.070
  • GOD HAS A PLAN FOR US.
  • 00:21:02.080 --> 00:21:05.250
  • SECOND TRUTH I SEE IN THIS PASSAGE IS: GOD HAS A
  • 00:21:05.260 --> 00:21:08.260
  • TIMETABLE FOR ACCOMPLISHING HIS PLAN.
  • 00:21:08.270 --> 00:21:11.230
  • GOD HAS A TIMETABLE FOR ACCOMPLISHING HIS PLAN
  • 00:21:11.240 --> 00:21:14.040
  • IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:14.050 --> 00:21:14.290
  • AND BY THE WAY HIS TIMETABLE IS USUALLY
  • 00:21:15.000 --> 00:21:17.040
  • DIFFERENT FROM OURS.
  • 00:21:17.050 --> 00:21:18.280
  • HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT?
  • 00:21:18.290 --> 00:21:21.030
  • WHEN GOD SAID TO ISRAEL:
  • 00:21:21.040 --> 00:21:22.080
  • NOW, I HAVE 490 YEARS ON MY TIME TABLE FOR YOU.
  • 00:21:22.090 --> 00:21:26.230
  • AND EVERYTHING WAS GOING ALONG JUST AS GOD PLANNED
  • 00:21:26.240 --> 00:21:29.100
  • FOR THE FIRST 483 YEARS.
  • 00:21:29.110 --> 00:21:31.080
  • THEN GOD HITS THAT PAUSE BUTTON.
  • 00:21:31.090 --> 00:21:32.240
  • HE GOES OVER HERE FOR 2.000 PLUS YEARS AND IS
  • 00:21:32.250 --> 00:21:35.130
  • DOING SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:21:35.140 --> 00:21:37.100
  • ISRAEL FEELS FORSAKEN.
  • 00:21:37.110 --> 00:21:38.270
  • THEY'RE NOT FORSAKEN.
  • 00:21:38.280 --> 00:21:39.280
  • GOD HASN'T FORGOTTEN ABOUT HIS PROMISE.
  • 00:21:39.290 --> 00:21:42.100
  • AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME HE WILL FINISH THE PLAN,
  • 00:21:42.110 --> 00:21:45.180
  • BUT HE'S GOING TO DO IT ACCORDING TO HIS TIME-
  • 00:21:45.190 --> 00:21:47.160
  • NOT OURS.
  • 00:21:47.170 --> 00:21:48.230
  • THE SAME THING IS TRUE FOR YOU.
  • 00:21:48.240 --> 00:21:50.120
  • I BELIEVE I'M TALKING TO SOME OF YOU THIS MORNING
  • 00:21:50.130 --> 00:21:52.190
  • WHO THINK GOD HAS GIVEN UP ON YOU.
  • 00:21:52.200 --> 00:21:55.040
  • THAT HE'S OVER DOING SOMETHING ELSE,
  • 00:21:55.050 --> 00:21:56.220
  • THAT HE'S FORGOTTEN ALL ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:21:56.230 --> 00:21:58.050
  • NO HE HASN'T.
  • 00:21:58.060 --> 00:21:59.230
  • HE HAS A PLAN AND HE HAS A TIME TABLE FOR
  • 00:21:59.240 --> 00:22:03.060
  • ACCOMPLISHING THAT PLAN.
  • 00:22:03.070 --> 00:22:04.120
  • AND IT'S A PLAN YOU CAN TRUST IN.
  • 00:22:04.130 --> 00:22:07.250
  • LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WHEN WE PLACE OUR HAND IN GOD'S HAND;
  • 00:22:07.260 --> 00:22:14.200
  • WE COMMIT TO FOLLOWING HIM,
  • 00:22:14.210 --> 00:22:17.030
  • OBEYING HIM, TRUSTING IN HIS PLAN AND HIS
  • 00:22:17.040 --> 00:22:20.200
  • TIMETABLE; WE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING
  • 00:22:20.210 --> 00:22:25.200
  • TO BE AFRAID OF.
  • 00:22:25.210 --> 00:22:27.000
  • MUSIC
  • 00:22:27.090 --> 00:22:31.070
  • ALTHOUGH GOD'S WAYS ARE MYSTERIOUS AND HIS METHODS
  • 00:22:31.200 --> 00:22:34.220
  • SOMETIMES CONFOUNDING WE CAN BE SURE THAT GOD'S SOVEREIGN
  • 00:22:34.230 --> 00:22:38.280
  • PLAN IS AT WORK.
  • 00:22:38.290 --> 00:22:40.290
  • MY PRAYER IS THAT GOD USES THIS STUDY IN DANIEL 9
  • 00:22:41.000 --> 00:22:45.020
  • TO ENCOURAGE YOUR FAITH AND BOLSTER YOUR CONFIDENCE
  • 00:22:45.030 --> 00:22:48.290
