The seven years of the 70th week of Daniel are the most important in all of human history, because of the truth about their fulfillment, and because of the deceptions that are based on them.
Below are two timelines that give an explanation for the fulfillment of the 70th Week on Daniel prophecy, which is found in Daniel 9:26-27.
The first timeline was fulfilled by Jesus Christ.
The second timeline features an end times Antichrist.
The first timeline was taught for 1800 years.
The second timeline is now taught by today’s Pastors.
The first timeline represents God’s truth.
The second timeline represents Satan’s deception.
Here’s the 70th week of Daniel, as fulfilled by Jesus Christ from 27-34 A.D.:
It starts with Jesus beginning His ministry of confirming the Abrahamic covenant.
For 3.5 years, Jesus and His disciples ministered to the House of Israel.
Midway, Jesus was crucified for our sins, ending the need for Jewish temple sacrifices.
For 3.5 years, Jesus disciples ministered to the House of Judah. Some Jews accepted Jesus as their Messiah, but most rejected Him and persecuted His disciples.
At the end of the 7 years, Stephen was stoned to death by the Jewish leaders, finalizing their rejection of Jesus New Covenant.
Here’s the 70th week of Daniel, as it will be supposedly fulfilled by an end times Antichrist, after a 1,986+ year time gap:
It starts with the Antichrist making a 7-year peace covenant with Israel.
For 3.5 years, there would be relative peace.
Midway, the Antichrist would proclaim that he is God in a rebuilt Jewish temple.
For 3.5 years, there would be Great Tribulation.
At the end of the 7 years, Jesus would return to destroy the Antichrist.
Notice how the structure of both timelines is very similar, but their story lines are diametrically opposed.
Satan is the master deceiver, who manipulates Gods Words to deceive men.

The consequences of the 70 Weeks of Daniel deception are grand!
It causes Christians to look for an end times one-man Antichrist, instead of identifying the Roman Catholic Church as the beast of Revelation, the Little Horn of Daniel and the Pope, the Son of Perdition.
This is the very reason that the end times 7 year tribulation deception was created by the Roman Catholic Church.
They were being accused by the Protestant Reformers of being the Antichrist system who persecuted the saints.
The Protestant Reformers told people to ‘come out of her‘, which caused millions of people to leave the Roman Catholic Church and be saved by the pure Gospel of Jesus.
The Antichrist is not just a man who will enter a rebuilt Jewish temple in the end times.
It is the Roman Catholic Church who has inserted itself into the spiritual temple of Christianity by claiming to be Christian, but they are really the old Babylonian religion of Sun and Satan worshipers. That is why they are called Mystery Babylon.
“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:19-22,
The Roman Catholic Church has been seated in the temple and proclaiming to be God since 538 A.D. Antichrist doesn’t just mean against Christ, but it also means ‘in place of Christ.’ The Pope calls himself the ‘Vicar of Christ’ which means substitute Christ.

The 70 Weeks of Daniel is the only prophecy that revealed the exact year that the Messiah would appear.
Other prophecies pointed to the coming Messiah, but only this one told them the exact year that He would appear.
That year was 27 A.D., when Jesus was baptized and anointed, and then He read from Isaiah in the temple and proclaimed that He was the Messiah. 🙂
The 70 weeks of Daniel prophecy states that Messiah the Prince (Jesus) would appear after the 69th week (after 483 years). Calculating 483 years before 27 A.D., means that the starting point of the prophecy was 457 B.C. This matches the year that Artaxerxes decreed that the Jews were free to return to Jerusalem, and that they would receive his assistance in rebuilding the city and temple. (Ezra 7:13,20)
By putting the focus on an end times Antichrist, it removes the amazing fulfillment of Jesus ministry, and fulfillment of Jeremiah 31:31, “Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.”
Despite their previous idolatry and sins against God, Jesus graciously offered the Israelites salvation. The foundation of the Christian Church is built on believers who came from the house of Israel and the house of Judah.
It de-emphasizes that the house of Israel and the house of Judah already returned to their land and were brought together under Jesus new covenant.
Instead we have been deceived to focus on the modern state of Israel as the fulfillment of prophecy.

It removes the finality of Jesus judgment and execution of vengeance against the Jews.
In the Parable of the Landowner, the Parable of the Wedding Feast and in His “Woe to you” speech against the Jewish leaders, Jesus told them that because they rejected His new covenant, delivered Him up to be killed, and killed the prophets, He would desolate them, their city and the temple.
The “days of vengeance”, the “great tribulation as never has been before”, the “time of Jacob’s trouble”, resulted in a total of 1.1 million Jews dying from famine, disease, 10’s of thousands by crucifixion, 100’s of thousands by infighting amongst themselves, 100’s of thousands by the Roman sword; and the rest were sold into slavery.
Jesus told the Jews, “Your house is left to you desolate; for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ “
The Sinai Covenant has been fulfilled and there is no way to heaven except through Jesus. “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28
It causes Christians to not understand end times theology, so that they mistakenly support the state of Israel.
Since the Israelites regathered before Jesus first coming, there is no need for a regathering before His second coming.
Jesus told the Jews that Jerusalem would be trampled by Gentiles until the time of the Gentiles is fulfilled.
But the time of the Gentiles is not over yet, so if the people in Israel are Jews, then that would make Jesus statement false.
But Jesus statement is proven true because 97% of people who call themselves Jews ARE NOT descendents of Abraham. They are Ashkenazi Jews, who are the descendents of Turkish-Mongols that converted to Judaism in the 8th century, making them Gentiles.

It causes Christians to believe that they will be raptured before they have to face the beast.

Instead of being prepared, they will run around like the foolish virgins looking for oil for their lamps.
When the economy collapses, when there are food and water shortages, when WWIII pits Christian America against Muslim countries, when the world is cast into despair; unprepared Christians will become desperate for help, just like the rest of the world.
Unprepared Christians will be ripe to accept the False Messiah who offers food, water and peace. And they will be susceptible to worship the image of the beast, and deny Jesus, in order to preserve their earthly life.
Jesus told us to be alert and prepared.
The world will be desperate for hope and the fields will be ripe. Will you be able to help with the harvest?
Will you have a supply of spiritual oil of faith and love for your lamps, so that you will shine as a light in the dark world?
Will you be prepared to overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of your testimony, and not love your lives to the death?
