Gabriel told Daniel about Israel's future

Turning back to the Jews in the Tribulation, Jesus effectively wipes away all sin, and restores the Jews back to Him.

The Jews have 490 Bible years left which are 483 of our years

Understanding 6 things that must still happen to Israel at the time of great Tribulation.

A day can represent a year in prophecy. So a week represents 7 Bible years of 360 days each year.

Our Roman year is 365.24 days long.

So every 70 Bible years equals 69 of our Roman years.

In 490 Bible years we lose 490/70 = 7 of our years.

So 490 Bible years is 483 of our years.

DANIEL 9:24   Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city,

Nehemiah got the commandment to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem in 446 BC.

According to Dr Scofield, Malachi prophesied in 397 BC. That was 49 years or 7 weeks.

So, for 49 years the Jews could expect prophetic guidance.
DANIEL 9:25    Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks:

7 weeks of prophetic guidance and 62 weeks without any prophets

7 + 62 = 69 weeks = 483 days or Bible years.

But on our Roman calendar, we would be 7 years less.

So, we see the 69 Bible years taking 483 - 7 = 476 years.

476 Roman years =  446 BC  + 30 AD

So Messiah would arrive about AD 30.

LUKE 3:23   And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age,

Six months before that, the prophet John the Baptist would shake up the Jews in 29 AD.

By about AD 30 there were 7 years left to the Jews before Jesus would set up the Millennium of 1000 years of peace and the Jews would rule the world.

The total remaining history of the Jews was wrapped up in 70 weeks or  70 x 7 =  490 days

To prove that a day can represent a year in prophecy.

GENESIS 29:27   Fulfill her week ... which thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.

Seven days represent seven years.

We can regard 70 weeks as  490 Bible years of 360 days.

Why is a Bible year equal to 360 days?

Revelation 11: 2-3 describes great Tribulation as a time of 42 months or 1260 days.

Thus each month must be 30 days.

A year of 12 months will then be 360 days.

REVELATION 11:2   But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

:3   And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

A score is 20.  Threescore = 3 x 20 = 60

This makes 1260 days.

The two witnesses are the two prophets, Moses and Elijah.

DANIEL 9:24     Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

Sixty-nine and a half weeks had passed when Jesus was crucified after a ministry of 3.5 years.

[Check these details on the study:  Understanding the Times of Daniel’s 70 Weeks ]

"Thy people" are the Jews who are linked to the city of Jerusalem.



And discloses the facts that God deals only with the Jews when they are in their homeland.

…  And God never did deal with the Jew out of Palestine. And when the Messiah … was cut off (not for Himself, for us) … Israel was scattered, and has not never come back to their homeland only just in the last few years. So, time wasn't counted in there for the church age.

God’s time for the Jews stopped at Calvary and will re-start when great Tribulation starts.

Between Calvary and great Tribulation time, we have the seven church ages where God pulled out the Gentile church.

The last week  (or 7 years) of Daniel's 70 weeks (or 490 Bible years) is divided in half.

The first three-and-a-half years were the ministry of Jesus. The last three-and-a-half years will be great Tribulation.

Daniel 7:25 speaks of the "dividing of time".

This refers to the seven church ages as they divide the last week (or time) into two half-weeks.

Jesus had a ministry of 3½ years, then the Jews were cut off for the seven church ages.

The church ages end when the Rapture (as many call it) catches the church up to Heaven.

Then the Gospel returns to the Jews for the last 3½ years of great Tribulation.

These last 3½ years of great Tribulation and the start of the Millennium, the 1000 years of peace, is where Daniel places these six events that are to happen.

The two prophets, Moses and Elijah, bring the Gospel to the Jews in order to pull out the 144000.

A quick summary of the six events as an introduction

The following events must happen to the Jews during the time of great Tribulation.

1To finish the transgression,

The High Priest Caiaphas condemned Messiah in AD 33 and ended the Law. This transgressed the Law of God.

God blinded the Jews so that they rejected Messiah and then the Jews were scattered in AD 70 by the Roman general, Titus. Roman Emperor Hadrian exiled the remaining Jews in AD 135. This was God symbolically breaking the Jewish branch off His olive tree.

The Jews must be grafted back into the olive tree that God broke them off from. So God will reverse the process. Bringing the Jews back to the land that He once drove them out of. Then God will un-blind them. Jesus kept healing the blind as a preview of when He will heal the blindness of the nation of Israel.

Once the Jews have returned to Israel then God can restore the nation back to Himself.

The transgression is finished when the Jews are all back in their Promised Land and God uses the two prophets, Moses and Elijah, to open their eyes to the truth.

  1. and to make an end of sins,

Sin is unbelief.

The Jews did not believe that Jesus died to save them from their sins.

They said, "His blood be on us and our children".

MATTHEW 27:25   Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

They wanted to be responsible for the death of the Messiah.

GENESIS 9:6   Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed

The Jews demanded the death of Jesus. In return, God demands their death.

But blood holds the life of a person.   So killing someone is a very complex action with no quick and easy solution.
LEVITICUS 17:14   ... for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof:

Demanding "blood-for-blood" becomes too difficult for us humans to puzzle out. Too many issues are involved.

We thus need a Judge, the Word of God, to tell us what God's decision is on this issue.
DEUTERONOMY 17:8   If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between blood and blood,...

being matters of controversy within thy gates: then shalt thou arise, and get thee up into the place which the LORD thy God shall choose;

:9   And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and enquire; and they shall shew thee the sentence of judgment:

:10    And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which they of that place which the LORD shall choose shall shew thee; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they inform thee:

The true judge is the Word of God.

JOHN 12:48   ...  the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

What does the Bible say about the salvation of the Jews? Especially since they demanded the blood of Jesus.

What effect does that have on their blood?

We need to investigate that.

It appears that in order to be saved, the sincere Jews have to be killed, just for being Jews.

The six million who died in Hitler's Holocaust found out that their cruel deaths were actually their passports to Heaven.

This Holocaust was a preview of the much worse great Tribulation when God turns back to the Jews for three and a half years.

That will be a time of much slaughter. But sincere Jews who are killed will go to Heaven.

The Fifth Seal shows the Jewish martyrs getting white robes in Heaven.

Satan hates the Jews, but in killing them he does them a favour because that opens their door to heaven.

The two prophets, Moses and Elijah, will guide them to the truth and thus make an end of their sins or unbelief.

ZECHARIAH 13:7   Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.

The scattered sheep of Israel shall return to the Promised Land.

ZECHARIAH 13:8   And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

Two-thirds of the Jews will be killed in great Tribulation. But that is how Jews get into Heaven.

One-third of the Jews will survive the 3.5 years of great Tribulation.

By the time they see Jesus smash the antichrist forces at Armageddon, they will become firm followers of Him and will go into the Millennium or 1000 years of peace.

ZECHARIAH 13:9   And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

When the 3.5 years of great Tribulation is over this third part of Israel will dwell as God's people for their time in the Millennium. Like those before the Flood, they will live close to 1000 years before they die.

  1. and to make reconciliation for iniquity,

Iniquity is knowing that something is wrong and yet doing it.

That was Calvary. Pilate had found Jesus to be innocent. Yet the Jews wanted to kill Him so badly that they demanded His death.

Pilate even had the innocent Jesus flogged with 39 lashes before killing Him.

This was a total breakdown of justice.

Yet that is what the Jews demanded. The trial and punishment of Jesus were iniquitous.

The surviving Jews will mourn and lament when they recognize the nail marks in His hands.

ZECHARIAH 13:6   And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.

Their sincere repentance will end the iniquity.

ZECHARIAH 12:11   In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

:12   And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;

  1. and to bring in everlasting righteousness,

"Everlasting" means to the vanishing point. However long it takes to get there.

There will be righteousness for 1000 years.

Satan is the cause of wars and violence.

So the Devil is sealed up in a bottomless pit.

Jesus is then established as King on His throne.

A righteous, perfect King rules in the Millennium, and there is no evil adversary. What could be better?

And this will last for 1000 years.

But as soon as the Devil is released, the vast majority who have lived their entire lives in peace, safety, decency, and prosperity will flock to Satan's banner.

Thus, there is no hope for humanity. It is in human nature to choose the murderer Barabbas rather than the Man of Life, Jesus.

  1. and to seal up the vision and prophecy,

The prophecies of Daniel were sealed up until the time of the end.

Brother Branham revealed the mysteries of the written Bible that the Bride needs to know in order to be ready for the Coming of the Lord.

But he never revealed what the seven Thunders are nor what they say.

He never revealed the Seventh Seal which is the Coming of the Lord.

He never revealed the new name of Jesus.

These mysteries will only be made known right at the time of the Coming of the Lord.

Brother Branham never revealed the mysteries of the seven Trumpets and the seven Vials.

These events happen in great Tribulation and will be revealed by the two prophets, Moses and Elijah, who will introduce the 144000 Jews to their Messiah, Who is Jesus.

The final mysteries of the 3.5 years of great Tribulation are not known to us because they do not concern us. The true Bride will be in Heaven while these great Tribulation mysteries will be revealed by the two prophets to the Jews.

Then all the mysteries, including those of great Tribulation, will finally be made known.

  1. and to anoint the most Holy.

This is the Temple that will be the centre of worship in the 1000 years of peace.

The heathen who never heard the Gospel and who survived Armageddon will be the nations that are ruled by the Bride and the Jews with a rod of iron in the Millennium.

They will need blood sacrifices to atone for their sins because the blood of Jesus will no longer be on the mercy seat.

The Temple will probably be supernaturally built by Jesus because without blood sacrifices, those surviving heathen will have no forgiveness of their sins.

These are the six key events that have to happen to the Jews during and just after great Tribulation.

Let us review them to get them clearly in our minds.

1.    To finish the Transgression

DANIEL 9:24     Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, …

The Jews were the natural branch that God broke off so that He could graft us Gentiles into the olive tree, contrary to our nature.

But when the Gentile church pushes Christ outside the door in the last church age of the Laodiceans, then God will break off the Gentile branch and graft the Jews back into the tree.

REVELATION 3:20   Behold, I stand at the door, and knock:

Christ is knocking on the door of the church, not on the door of a sinner's heart.

ROMANS 11:24   For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

:25     For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

:26     And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

Grafting the Jews back into the olive tree will finish their transgression.


"Finish the transgression" will be turning away the ungodliness from Jacob. And then all Israel will be borned again. All of them will receive the Holy Spirit.

... God cut them off purposely and blinded their eyes so we could have a chance to see, giving us an opportunity; and we walk around like we're somebody. Paul tells them here: "Take heed of how you do that. Take heed, for if God spared not the natural branch, how will He have any more mercy on the wild branch.

Why is God able to save Israel in the Tribulation when He is no longer on the mercy seat?

Because God blinded them during the three-and-a-half-year ministry of Jesus.

Blinded them by the simplicity of the ministry of Jesus.

The Jews hated the conquering Romans and wanted a Messiah to defeat the Romans. But Messiah came and had mercy on the poor and never attacked the Romans. To make it worse, Messiah condemned the Jewish religious leaders as hypocrites. He threw the money-makers out of the Temple.

The Jews allowed their political hatred of the Romans to blind them to God's plan.

The Jews were too lazy to search the Old Testament for themselves so they just left it to the priests and Pharisees and Sadducees.

These religious leaders, motivated by the love of money and power, led the Jews away from the Scriptures.

But, the Jews could not handle hearing Jesus condemn their religious leaders that they were trusting.

This was so different from what the Jews were expecting the Messiah to do, that they condemned Jesus.

They thought the Messiah would protect them from the Romans and agree with the priesthood.

They did not realize that the Messiah would come to condemn the corrupt Temple priesthood. Pharisees, Sadducees, and Rabbis were not mentioned in the Old Testament. So the whole leadership structure was unscriptural and corrupt.

Their religious leaders were mainly responsible for guiding the Jews to reject Jesus and choose a man of death.

MARK 15:11   But the chief priests moved the people, that he (Pontius Pilate) should rather release Barabbas unto them.

Luke 23: 18-19 tells us that Barabbas was a murderer.

So the Jews chose death instead of life.

The High Priest Caiaphas ended the Law when he tore his robe.

MATTHEW 26:65   Then the high priest rent his clothes.

LEVITICUS 21:10   And he that is high priest... shall not uncover his head, nor rend his clothes.

The hatred of the religious leaders against the truth that Jesus was the Messiah, helped to blind the Jews to this truth.

(Today the church leaders totally oppose the King James Version of the Bible as being the Absolute truth).

It is always the religious leaders that mislead the people.

God responded to the high priest tearing his robe by tearing up the Temple veil and turning away from the Jews to establish the church which would mainly be Gentile as the 2000 years of church history unfolded.

MATTHEW 27: 51   ... the veil of the temple was rent in twain.

So by means of the two prophets, God will finally turn His attention back to the Jews.

These two prophets will use their supernatural power to interfere with nature in order to protect the Jews from attacks on Israel.

REVELATION 11:5   And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

:6   These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

The Jews will then realize that God is turning back to them.

God has a plan to restore the Jews to Himself.

2.    To make an end of sin

DANIEL 9:24     Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, …


... And to make an end of sin. Where did Israel sin? Where did they do their vital sin? Where did they separate themselves from God?

… Listen. Here's their mistake; here's their sin.

Then answered the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

… How could He do anything else but forgive them, knowing that He had to blind their eyes that we could come in. It's like His Own children calling for His Blood. And they were blinded, and He knowed they were blinded. That's the reason He cried for forgiveness for them: "Forgive them, Father, for they don't know what they are doing." They were blind. For our sake they were made blind. In their unbelief they did this. But when they see Him again.

 Put an end to sin. What is sin? Unbelief. They did not believe that was the Messiah. They could not see Him to be Messiah, yet He done every sign the Messiah was supposed to do. But they could not see it. They were blind.

To make an end of sin, of unbelief. That's what He's coming for.

For sin to end, a pardon must be received.

If a man hates another man and kills him, that man must die.
DEUTERONOMY 19:10   That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and so blood be upon thee.

:11    But if any man hate his neighbour, and lie in wait for him, and rise up against him, and smite him mortally that he die, and fleeth into one of these cities:

:12  Then the elders of his city shall send and fetch him thence, and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die.

So the Jews who demanded the death of Jesus also have to die.

Blood must be avenged. The Jews shed God's blood so God demands the Jews' blood.

ACTS 20:28   Take heed therefore unto yourselves , and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

But one advantage of the shed blood of Jesus is that it saved the Gentile church.

Thus God used the sin of the Jews to His own advantage.

(Lesson: When you try to oppose God you still end up doing what He wants done).

So, Jesus ended up forgiving the Jews.
LUKE 23:34    Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

Only the blood of Jesus can save us.

But under the Law, blood requires blood.

Therefore, God required sincere Jews to have to die for their faith in order to benefit from the death of Jesus.

Because God blinded them, God will not judge them on the accuracy of their belief. In addition, the Law was broken by Caiaphas and their Temple was destroyed. Without a Temple, they cannot live accurately by the Old Testament Law. Also, since the death of Jesus, all sacrifices are now meaningless.

DANIEL 9:27   And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease,

God had a seven-year covenant with the Jews. Halfway through that week, after 3½ years, Jesus died.

His great sacrifice ended all the Jewish animal sacrifices.

An oblation is any gift offered to God. All the Jewish offerings ended at Calvary.

Thus, during the seven church ages, the Jews just need to be very sincere in what they believe and live by the Old Testament as best they can.

But they have to be killed to free them from the blood-guilt of killing Messiah, which the Jews demanded to be placed on their own heads, in the days of Pontius Pilate.

However, God will only deal with the Jews in their Promised Land.

So, when great Tribulation starts, then they must get back to Israel.

The really important events of today are the return of the Jews to Israel and President Trump's acknowledgement of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

In the days of Moses when he led the first exodus of the Jews to Israel, God said:

NUMBERS 10:2   Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.

:3    And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

Two trumpets had to be blown to get the people to assemble together.

These two trumpets represent the prophets, Moses and Elijah.
EXODUS 9:23   And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

:24   So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

One sign of this exodus was hail mingled with fire.

Seven Trumpets will be blown in the Tribulation, starting in Revelation Chapter 8.

The first Trumpet will be hail mingled with fire.

This will make many Jews aware that another exodus to Israel is on the go. As a result, many will return to Israel to find Moses there.

REVELATION 8:7  The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

REVELATION 11:6   These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

Moses and Elijah will turn water to blood in the Tribulation.
REVELATION 8:8   And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;

The second Trumpet turns water to blood just like Moses did before Pharaoh.

This will persuade many more Jews to return to Israel.

The seven Trumpets are simply supernatural events that will force the Jews to return to Israel.

Great Tribulation starts when Satan is thrown out of Heaven. At the moment he has access to Heaven as the accuser of the brethern.

But when the Bride has their new bodies then they will be free from sin and no more accusations can be made against them.

REVELATION 12:12   Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Satan only has three and a half years to take over the world. So he will be very angry.

REVELATION 12:13   And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

The woman is Israel.

The 3.5 years of great Tribulation time will be spent by the antichrist Pope trying to destroy Israel.

REVELATION 12:14   And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

A spiritual wilderness where Israel is rejected by all nations.

An eagle represents a prophet. Its incredible eyesight symbolizes the insight into God's Word that only a prophet can achieve.

The two wings represent Moses and Elijah.

They have an incredible supernatural power that can interrupt nature.

REVELATION 11:6    These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

Now we must appeal to the supreme Judge, the Word of God.

Can the Jews be saved when we consider that they crucified Messiah?

REVELATION 6:9   And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

There are four living creatures who look after the Gentile church during the seven church ages that end when the true church is caught up to Heaven.

Then the fifth Seal opens and there are no living creatures. So this is another group, not the church.

They each had their own testimony.  Christians only have the testimony of Jesus and how He has helped them.

The only other group that is of interest to God is the Jews.

REVELATION 6:10    And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

These people have all been killed for their faith. They demand vengeance.

Christians, like Stephen the first martyr, died asking for his murderers to be forgiven.

But the Jews have the Law:

EXODUS 21:24   Eye for eye, tooth for tooth,

Thus Jews are allowed to demand vengeance.

So these are the Jewish martyrs who have been killed during the church ages.

Despite the killing Jesus, if they have been sincere and killed for their faith, then God has granted them salvation.

Undeservedly, they were given white robes. These robes were not earned or deserved.

REVELATION 6:11   And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

These Jews have seen that church was caught up to Heaven at the end of the seventh church age.

They, therefore, want God to go down and destroy the enemy.

But wait, there are 144000 Jews who still have to receive the same Gospel, during the 3.5 years of great Tribulation, that the Gentile church received.

Then the 144000 must also be killed because they are Jews.

So this is when Israel's sin ends.

The 144000 Jews must die but they will soon be resurrected up to be the bodyguard for the Bride when Jesus and the Bride go down for the battle Armageddon.

REVELATION 6:12   And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

Nature gets interrupted during the time of great Tribulation. It will be a terrible time.

REVELATION 6:13   And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

But despite all the terror, God has a plan in the 3.5 years of great Tribulation for the Jews.

Two silver trumpets of warning. The prophets Moses and Elijah.

EZEKIEL 33:4   Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.

:5   He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.

God sends a prophet. If we do not listen to the warning that he gives, we are in trouble.

The two prophets will turn the 144000 back to Jesus.

These Jews will sincerely mourn when they realize that the One who they rejected is actually their Saviour.

ZECHARIAH 12:10   And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

:11   In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem,

3. “To make reconciliation for iniquity”.

DANIEL 9:24     Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness...


"Iniquity" is "doing wrong," as they did at the cross. He made reconciliations, but it will not be applied to them. It was not applied to them, why? Because they were blinded and could not see it. And why did they blind? You say, "Well, maybe today because I'm blind..." You're willfully blind. They were blind because God blinded them, but you're blind because you're willfully blind. There's no reconciliation for you. "If you believe not I am He," said Jesus, "you'll die in your sins." That's right.

…    Now, in Zechariah the 13th chapter, let's begin at the 1st verse:

In that day there shall be a fountain opened in the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and uncleanliness.

… And one shall say to him, What are these wounds in thy hand? Then he shall answer,

Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friend.

Awake, O sword, against the shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of host: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn my hand upon the little ones.

What? The Benjamin group that's coming up now. "I will turn My hand to the little ones."

… First Israel smote the shepherd, scattered the sheep to all the world, but God said, "I will turn My hand back to get them little ones at the last days." When? When reconciliation for iniquity has been made. Israel will be saved, every one of them.

ISAIAH 66:8   Who has heard such a thing? who has seen such a thing? Shall the earth be made and bring forth in one day?... for as soon as Zion travaileth, she brought forth her children.

As soon as Zion saw that that was their Messiah, she was borned again in one day. Make reconciliations for iniquity, uncleanliness. Oh, my. They did that what was evil, that which was wrong. Reconciliations was made for their iniquity.

By meeting the Jews as Messiah, Jesus effectively makes reconciliations for their iniquity.


4. “To bring in everlasting righteousness”.


When Israel's transgression has come to an end, Satan, who is their accuser and our accuser, Satan will be sealed up in the bottomless pit. When what? When bringing in everlasting righteousness, something that cannot end. All because unrighteousness will be done away with.

And seals up the devil which has deceived the people.

REVELATION 20:1-3   And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

... he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that must be loosed a little season.

Bring in everlasting righteousness. Satan in the bottomless pit. And when He does that, and seals up the devil which has deceived the people.

When Satan is chained by circumstances in the bottomless pit, then God’s love and the truth will spread around the world.

HABAKKUK 2:14  For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge and the glory of the LORD, as the waters covers the sea.

Oooh, my, whew. In other words, when the enemy has been put away, the end of sin has come, the bringing in of everlasting righteousness has come, Satan is sealed up in the bottomless pit, and the knowledge of the Lord shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. Amen. Glory to God. It's coming, brother; it's coming. Women will be ladies, and men will be gentlemen. Amen.

5.   and to seal up the vision and prophecy, 


Daniel 12:1

And at that time Michael shall stand..., the great prince which will stand for the children of thy people:... (Now, this is at the end time.)... and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since... the nation... (That's when the antichrist, this First Seal rider goes forth when he takes place.)... even until this time:... (Not in the time that when Titus took the walls of Jerusalem. That was only at one place. Watch when this antichrist, that prince that was to come, watch when he comes.)... even to the same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, everyone that's found written in the book. (Hallelujah. Thy people, Israel, shall be written in a book.)

And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

How in the world could that have been when Titus took the walls of Jerusalem? How could it have been? It couldn't be. See, he's speaking of the end time at the resurrection. Is that right? Now:

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn away many to righteousness as stars forever.

Listen. Here it is, the real true sealing.

But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end:

What is it? Oh, hallelujah. Do you see it, class? This revelation of Jesus Christ, and of His power, of His coming, of the end time was sealed up until this time. That's what He come to do. It's hid from the scholars. No wonder they want to apply sealing it up back yonder to those prophets and everything way back. It won't hold water. But this vision has been sealed till right here now, and there's where I'm placing my faith that God will reveal them seventy weeks. Amen. "Seal it up," he said, "till the end time. Close up the words and seal the book until the end time."

What did he do? To seal up the vision and the prophecy. Daniel had prophesied these things. He had saw it in a vision, and the Angel come down to seal the vision and to seal the prophecy; they can read it, but can't understand it until the end time. The end time, what is the end time? The end of the seventieth week, when that prince, antichrist, will be revealed, at this time, making himself God.

… And he said, Go your way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the... [Congregation says, "End."--Ed.] Oh, don't you forget that. Until the time of the end.

Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried, but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

The end time Message shall reveal it, the last church age.

…  But that prince that would stand up, that would cause the abomination to make desolation, that was Rome through Titus; and this time it's a prince coming out of Rome that'll do it. And he will be revealed in the last days making himself God, as the Holy Ghost warns us in II Thessalonians 2:12

[This Prince will be the final Pope].

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,...

"We are the greatest church." "We have this; we have this. All of you consolidate together." See? "We are the greatest." Lying wonders.

And with all unrighteousness in them that perish; because they receive not of the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this cause God has sent them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

And that they might be damned who believe not the truth, but has pleasure in unrighteousness.

6.  “To anoint the most holy”


… to anoint the most Holy, which will be the Tabernacle that'll be used during the Millennium.

… But when the King takes His throne for one thousand years... Glory She's over now. The anointing of the most Holy will be the last thing take place.

… Jeremiah 3:12-18

Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the LORD thy God, and has scattered thy ways to the stranger under every green tree,... (That's what they've done from east, west, every nation. See?)... and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the LORD.

Turn, O backslidden children, saith the LORD; for I am... (M-a-r-r-i-e-d)... I am married unto you:... ("Their eyes were blinded, because I give the Gentiles a chance, but you return for I am married unto you.")... and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family,... (Not all that call themselves Jews will go in, but that elected group will go in, that little Benjamin that come up down there before Joseph, that group from out of every nation, one out of a city, and [two] out of a family.)... and I will bring you to Zion:

JEREMIAH 3:14   Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

The new Temple is built for the Millennium of one thousand years of peace.
