COULD THERE BE A GAP IN DANIEL’S 70TH WEEK OF 3.5 YEARS.
I know many of you believe that the 7 Year Tribulation is History as I also do. However, I have a comment from a dear sister by the name of Annette Hammond that I thought I would share with you folks. I once believed what she has commented on and sometimes I think this could also be what happens in the Book of Revelation that would give some credence to a Gap between the 70th Week of Daniel to leave 3.5 years yet to fulfill. Tell me what you think?
“I agree with you that there is no 7 year Tribulation only 3 1/2 years. That is clear from Dan 7:25; 12:7; Rev 11:2, 3; 12:6,14; 13:5.
However I would not say that the prophecy is “history”, as the 3 1/2 years still remain to be fulfilled.
There are 6 purposes to the prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27.
Of them all only one has been fulfilled and the rest await their consummation at the end of the final 3 1/2 years, with the second coming of Christ:
Transgression will be finished!
An end will be made to sins!
Reconciliation has already been made for iniquity (This indeed was fulfilled on the cross, 2000 years ago)?
Everlasting righteousness will be brought in!
The vision and prophecy will be sealed up!
The most Holy will anointed!
These 6 purposes of the prophecy all have to do with salvation from sin.
They have to do with the first coming of the Messiah: His ministry confirming the Covenant for 3 1/2 years) where He made reconciliation for iniquity.
They have to do with His second coming: After the confirming of the covenant for 3 1/2 years by the two witnesses in the book of Revelation, to make an end of all sin, iniquity and bring in everlasting righteousness.”
