The Seventy Weeks prophecy of Daniel is a foundational end times prophecy
“Seventy weeks are decreed about your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin, and to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and to anoint a most holy place.” Daniel 9:24
In this Seventy weeks (seventy weeks of years) prophecy, the first 69 weeks have played out exactly as prophesied including Jesus first coming to this earth and being killed “cut off”. There is an unspecified time gap between the 69 weeks and the last seven weeks (seven years) but as many of the other end-times events specified by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24) and in Revelation are beginning to play out we know that the last seven years before Jesus returns to set up His Millennial Kingdom is not too far off.
... And he (Antichrist) shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week, he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.” Daniel 9:27
Bearing in mind Daniel was told to seal up the prophecy as it was not applicable until the time of the end.
“Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end.” Daniel 12:9
We know from this prophecy that the Antichrist puts an end to sacrifices and offerings at the midpoint of the last seven years so they will need to start sometime before the midpoint.
Nelson Walters asks and then attempts to answer the following question in this video. Will Lamb Offerings mark the beginning of the 70th Week of Daniel? Or will they begin prior to the Tribulation or after it has already started? Can we use the beginning of these offerings as a sign? Is there a Bible prophecy that times the beginning of these offerings? Watch this Nelson Walter’s Q&A video to find the answer to this and other questions about lamb offerings.
