Seventy Sevens – Seventy Weeks

Seventy Weeks

This is about the mystery of the vision of Seventy Sevens or Seventy Weeks of Daniel chapter 9. This chapter will reveal this mystery for you. Can you imagine that this prophecy is not ended, but will fulfill and complete soon? Let’s see, it is very exciting…

Prayer for Jerusalem

Daniel 9:1,2 says, “In the first year(522 BC) of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, by descent a Mede, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans— in the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, perceived in the books the number of years that, according to the word of YHWH to Jeremiah the prophet, must pass before “the end of the desolations of Jerusalem”, namely, seventy years”.

Daniel knew the 70 years end period of the desolations of Jerusalem was near, he pray…

I prayed to YHWH my God and made confession, saying, “O YHWH, the great and awesome God, who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly and rebelled, turning aside from your commandments and rules…

16 “O YHWH, according to all your righteous acts, let your anger and your wrath turn away from your city Jerusalem, your holy hill, because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and your people have become a byword among all who are around us. 17 Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O YHWH, make your face to shine upon your sanctuary, which is desolate. …”

While Daniel was speaking and praying, confessing his sin and the sin of the people of Israel, and presenting his plea before YHWH God for the holy Jerusalem. Angel Gabriel came in the evening sacrifice, he said “O Daniel, I have now come out to give you insight and understanding. 23 At the beginning of your pleas for mercy, “a word” “went out“, and I have come to tell it to you(tell you this word), for you are greatly loved. Therefore considerthe word” and understand the vision.”

He continued… 24 Seventy sevens are decreed… 25 Know therefore and understand that from the going out of the “word” to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one, a prince, there shall be “seven sevens“. Then for “sixty-two sevens” it shall be built again with squares and moat, but in a troubled time.

26 And after the “sixty-two sevens“, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end(end of Seventy Sevens) shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed. 27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for “one seven“, and for “half of the seven” 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.

The purpose of Seventy-Sevens vision

What does this vision or this prophecy about? What is it’s purpose?

Angel Gabriel said this vision was about “your people(saints) and your holy city(Jerusalem)“. The purpose is:

  • 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

Yes, this vision is about your people(saints) and holy city(New Jerusalem). When the Jerusalem is restored, the above six points will be realized. Is that realized already? No, the Jerusalem has not restored, and even it is not existed(desolated) today, so we are sure that the prophecy is not completed. When this prophecy is fulfilled, Jerusalem will has a “new name”, the new name is “New Jerusalem“.

Isaiah 62:1,2

For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
    and for Jerusalem’s sake” I will not be quiet,
until her righteousness goes forth as brightness,
    and her salvation as a burning torch.
The nations shall see your righteousness,
    and all the kings your glory,
and you shall be called by a new name(New Jerusalem)
    that the mouth of YHWH will give.

Then what does it mean of “Seventy Sevens” or “Seventy Weeks”? When did it start? This vision is very interesting but also confusing, may God send Angel Gabriel give us insight and understanding it.

First of all, “Seventy Sevens” is combined with 2 parts. The first part is “Sixty-nine Sevens(69@7)” divided into 2 portions, “Seven Sevens” (7 @ 7 = 49) and “Sixty-Two Sevens” (62 @ 7 = 434) ; The second part is “One Seven(7)”, and this one “7” is also divided into 2 portions, 2 x 3.5(half and half).

Explanations of the “Word” and “Seventy Sevens”

What does it mean of this prophecy? When did it start? When did the ‘Word‘ go out?

Explanation 1

There are many explanations of this prophecy. One is: the “word” means came from Artaxerxes I(BC 445). Jerusalem was restore and rebuild. But I want to say “restore and build Jerusalem” has started long time ago before Artaxerxes I, so “Seventy Sevens” must be counted before BC 445.

And the last ‘one Seven’ is so complicated and confusing. One explanation is after the 69 sevens, there would be a long unknown period(someone define it the “Church period”) to separate the ’69 Sevens’ and the ‘one Seven’, this unknown period is about 2000 years till to now. After this unknown period, the last ‘one Seven’ will happen at “the End Day”.

But there is no biblical verse to support the last “one Seven” is separated with the “69 Sevens”, otherwise how can God says is “Seventy Sevens”? For it has separated a long time(about 2000 years). If so, God can directly says it has 2 period, “69 Sevens” and “one Seven” that should be much more clear, no need to say “Seventy Sevens” for it is not a continuous timeline.

Moreover Gabriel said the “prince” will make a strong covenant with many within ‘one Seven’, and then “destroy the city and the sanctuary” in the ‘half of Seven’, “put an end to sacrifice and offering”. AD 70 was the year Jerusalem destroyed, so it indicated that year was “half of one seven”. That means the last “Seven” has already occurred and has past a half. Also he said “to the end there shall be war”, implying that there will be wars continuously for a long time till to “the end time”, implying that the war is not three and half years only, but much longer.

On the other hand, we know the sanctuary(Jerusalem) had completely destroyed in AD70, how can the “abominations” destroy it again? Shall God has to “rebuild” the Jerusalem, and in the coming of “the half of seven”(3.5 years) to destroy it again? And then after the another 3.5 years(end of last half of Seven), “rebuild and restore” Jerusalem once more? It seems does not make sense.

The above evidences prove that the last ‘one seven’ has begun already, because the half of ‘one seven’ was occurred in AD 70 already, not the End Day. Obviously “Seventy Sevens” is a continuously timeline, no an unknown period to separate 69th seven and the last seven. So this explanation does not match exactly the prophecy of “Seventy Sevens”.

Explanation 2

“one Seven” was the 7 years from AD30 to AD36. In AD30 Jesus (an anointed one) baptized(Anointed by Holy Spirit) and missionary three and half years, and then killed by Jewish in AD 33. One explanation is : AD33 is the half(3.5) of the “one Seven”. Before the night he died, Jesus made covenant of God’s Kingdom with apostles. “He(Jesus) shall make a strong covenant with many for one seven”, the “Seventy Sevens” ended at AD 36 officially.

But I want to say, it does not match the Sanctuary(Jerusalem) destroyed time also, because it was destroyed in AD 70 not AD 33.

Another reason is this prophecy has not fulfilled completely in AD36. Even today we are still waiting “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“. So it proves that AD 33 was not the half of “one Seven”, and also AD 36 cannot be the end of the “Seventy Sevens”. The end time of “Seventy Sevens” should be much longer.

Meaning of the “Word”

Firstly, when did the vision “Seventy Sevens” begin? When did the “word” go out? Whom was the “word” come from?

Actually people say there were 3 times of the command(“word”)had issued for rebuilding Jerusalem They were Cyrus in 538 BC, Darius I in 522 BC and Artaxerxes in 445 BC. Then it makes us confused, for God did not tell us the “word” come from which king, then how can we confirm the “Seventy Sevens” beginning time? This is the key point of the starting time of the “Seventy Sevens”. If the “word” was come from one of those kings, God should mention in the Bible, as same as God told us Babylon was destroyed by the king “Cyrus”, but no verse can proves from which king directly.

Firstly, let’s see whom was the “word” come from…

Gabriel said :

At the beginning“…

a word went out

“I have come to tell it(the word) to you

“know therefore and understand that from the going out of the “word”…”

Therefore Gabriel said clearly the “word” had come out already, and the “word” was come from YHWH God. Gabriel needed to come “to tell” Daniel this “word”(tell Daniel God’s word). “At the beginning“-was the time of the first year of Darius(BC 522), and that day was Daniel praying God. So what does it mean? It means Gabriel had to let Daniel know and understand that the “Seventy Sevens” start from now on. So his meaning should be : God’s word has come out, I have to tell “this word” to you, from now on there has “Seventy Sevens” decreed about your people and your holy city

So “the word” does not mean come from Cyrus, Darius I or Artaxerxes, but Bible directly and clearly says the “word” was outgoing of God. So obviously, Angel Gabriel wanted Daniel to know this prophecy has begun “now“, God sent me to “tell you” His “word”, the time of God’s word came out was the first year of Darius I(BC 522). We are sure that the “word” was come from God, not from other not mentioned king.

One interesting question, why angel Gabriel came in swift flight while Daniel was praying? Why not wait for him finished the prayer, or next day or next month to tell him this vision? It seems very rush and no other instance like this in the Bible.

Please imagine when will you run in rush? One situation is : you have to arrive hurry at the appointed time before the flight take off(start). So that’s why angel Gabriel need to coming flight swift? Because this vision timeline has to start now, God’s word has come out and the “Seventy Sevens” has to start now. So that’s why Gabriel need to flight swift to tell Daniel.

Another interesting is this vision is about the holy city(Jerusalem). About rebuilding Jerusalem(God’s living place) this big project, how come the command(“word”) need to come from the king of Gentiles? Does God need a king to approve this project? It doesn’t make sense, right? But if this project is commanded(word) from God, (for God’s word has come out and the project begin now), then it will be reasonable.

Moreover, this prophecy is about the “holy city“(Jerusalem) and “to anoint a most holy place“. Then how come the Jerusalem(holy city) was destroyed and not existing now? So the answer is very clear, that is this prophecy has not fulfilled completely, but the holy city(New Jerusalem) will appear soon… Now let’s see the “Seventy Sevens”, firstly is “Seven Sevens”…

Seven Sevens

After God’s “word” had come out at BC 522(first year of Darius), the sanctuary was begun to restore and rebuild. It was “Seven Sevens”. There are 2 witnesses can prove that, they are prophet Haggai and Zechariah. Let’s read what they had said. After the first year of Darius…

Haggai 1:1,8,14,15 says, “1In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, on the first day of the month…

Go up to the hills and bring wood and build the house, that I may take pleasure in it and that I may be glorified, says YHWH.

14 And YHWH stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel… And they came and worked on the house of YHWH of hosts, their God,

15 on the twenty-fourth day of the month, in the sixth month, in the second year of Darius…”.

Haggai 2:18 says, “Consider from this day onward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month. Since the day that the foundation of YHWH’s temple was laid, consider”.

Haggai told us consider the “day” – the foundation of temple was laid. It proved that restoration of Jehovah God’s temple had been started after the first year of Darius BC 522 (God’s word had come out), and the foundation was laid in the next year ninth month 24. The Jerusalem building project was officially launched.

Another prophet Zechariah says,

Zechariah1:7,16 “On the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month, which is the month of Shebat, in the second year of Darius16 Therefore, thus says YHWH… my house shall be built in it, declares YHWH of hosts, and the measuring line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem”.

Zechariah 8:9 “Thus says YHWH of hosts: “Let your hands be strong, you who in these days have been hearing these words from the mouth of the prophets who were present on the day that the foundation of the house of YHWH of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built.”

Zechariah also proved that after 2 months of the foundation, it started measuring the Jerusalem. So the 2 witnesses proved that God’s “word” has come out in the first year of Darius, and then the restored and built Jerusalem started, and the foundation had been set in next year(the second year of Darius). So it proves that “Seventy Sevens” started in BC 522.

There is an question, that is from God’s word come out(BC 522) to Anointed one appeared(AD 30) total is 551 years(no zero year), it has exceeded 490 years(seventy sevens), and this vision has not fulfilled completely even till today. What does it mean? What does it tell us?

It tells us “Seventy Sevens” must not be the real number, not the real 490 years (70 x 7 years). If it is not the real number(years), then “Seventy Sevens” must be the symbolic meaning. Do we need to surprise about that? No, for most of God’s prophecy are symbolic form such as Daniel’s dream and Revelation.

Two parts of “Seventy Sevens”

“Seventy Sevens” are divided into 2 parts with 4 meanings. The first part is Seven Sevens(7×7) and Sixty-two Sevens(62×7) total sixty-nine sevens. The second part total One Seven(1×7), separated into 3.5(half) and 3.5(half).

So the total of the first part was “Sixty-nine Sevens“, this period shall “restore and build Jerusalem”, “and waited for an anointed one”. Firstly was the “Seven Sevens” period. Why God defined this period “Seven Sevens”? Maybe restored and built Jerusalem this period used 49 years, so God use this key point number(7@7) to symbolize it.

Sixty-Two Sevens

And then was “Sixty-two Sevens”(62@7), Jerusalem “shall be built again with squares and moat, but in a troubled time”, and “waited for” an anointed one to appear. After rebuilt Jerusalem with squares and moat, and then they waited for the anointed one to appear in this period. Let’s see how they rebuilt again…

Nehemiah 2:1,5 “In the month of Nisan, in the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes(about BC 445)…And I said to the king, “If it pleases the king, and if your servant has found favor in your sight, that you send me to Judah, to the city of my fathers’ graves, that I may rebuild it.”

Nehemiah 4:16-18 “From that day on, half of my servants worked on construction, and half held the spears, shields, bows, and coats of mail. And the leaders stood behind the whole house of Judah, 17 who were building on the wall. Those who carried burdens were loaded in such a way that each labored on the work with one hand and held his weapon with the other. 18 And each of the builders had his sword strapped at his side while he built. The man who sounded the trumpet was beside me.”

At that time(Sixty-Two Sevens) was really “in a troubled time”, half of them worked on construction and half of them held the spears, shields…

So they used total “Sixty-Nine Sevens” to restore rebuilt Jerusalem and wait for anointed. Again, this period does not mean the real 483 years(69 x 7), it is only used to symbolic the planning of God. So God uses (7 x 7) and (62 x 7) 2 key points to symbolic this period.

The Anointed One

After “Sixty-nine Sevens”, the anointed(Messiah) appeared. Who is the anointed?

John 4:25,26 says ‘The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ).” 26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am he”’. Yes, Jesus whom is the anointed one(Messiah).

Luke 3:21-23 says “…when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heavens were opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form(“anointed him”), like a dove; and a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son(” a Prince“); with you I am well pleased.” 23 Jesus, when he began his ministry, was about thirty years of age…”.

Holy Spirit anointed Jesus when he got baptized at 30 years old, at that time “an anointed one appear” was fulfilled. So “AD 30” was the actual year the end of “Sixty-nine Sevens”. And also the began of “One Seven” symbolized period.

And then the anointed one “shall be cut off and shall have nothing”. After the three and half(3.5) years ministry work, Jesus was killed by Jew. Matthew 27:50,51 says “And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit.51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom.”.

Angel Gabriel said “he shall make a strong covenant with many” within one seven period, and for half of the seven “he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering”.

A strong “Covenant”

Firstly, what is a strong “covenant”?

Luke 4:43 says, but he(Jesus) said to them, “I must preach the good news of the “kingdom of God” to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this “purpose”.

Luke 22:20 says And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood” .

So this strong covenant is “the new covenant” about the God’s kingdom, and Jesus was sent for this purpose.

Who did Jesus make a covenant with in one “Seven” symbolized period? He made covenant with many including apostles. This “covenant” is…

Revelation 3:21 says “The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne”.

Yes, this is a strong and great covenant for whom have undeserved grace to be the kings and sit next to Jesus and God. They are called the holy people(Saints). How many holy people would Jesus made covenant with? Revelation 7:4 says “And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000, sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel”.

Half of One Seven

What is used to symbolic the first half(3.5) of “One Seven”?

We can say the 3.5 years of Jesus witnessing period, is used to symbolic the first half of “one seven”. Why did Jesus not preach 3, 5, 10 or even 20 years but “3.5” years? So it tells us the “3.5” years has a special meaning, related to the “anointed” period(a half of seven), so God particularly uses it to symbolic the first half of “one seven”. And when Jesus died after 3.5 years ministry work, “the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom”. It symbolized Jerusalem and sanctuary will be destroyed in the “half of one Seven“, the actual year was AD70.

So the actual year of the first part of “One Seven”(3.5) was started from the anointed one(Jesus) appeared at AD 30, and ended at AD70(Jerusalem destroyed). AD30 was indicated the end of the first half(3.5) of “One Seven”, and also the beginning of another half(3.5).

So from AD 30 to AD 70 total 40 years was the actual timeline of the first half(3.5) period.

The last half of Seven

And then… Seventy Sevens has completed… has finished? But how about the another half of “One Seven”(3.5)? What is the actual timeline? How long of it? What is used to symbolic?

But Angel Gabriel didn’t provide more information about another half of “one seven”. Then how can we know it? It is very interesting and exciting, we are waiting long long time for God to reveal us.

Now, maybe it’s the time for God to reveal it, for our time is the final period of the End Days. Let us ask some questions : What is “a time, times, and half a time”? What is “1,260 days”? What is “forty-two months”? Are they related to another half of Seven(3.5)?

Let’s see… Daniel 12:6,7,11 says “And someone said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, “How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?…he raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven and swore by him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time, and that when the shattering of the power of the holy people comes to an end all these things would be finished.11 And from the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that makes desolate is set up(from AD70)…”. So the period of “a time, times, and half a time” is related to “holy people” of the Jerusalem(New Jerusalem).

Where are the holy people(saints) come from?

Revelation 12:1,2 says “And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth”.

Yes, they are born from the heavenly woman and they are the God’s son. This woman had a very long pregnancy and delivery period, Rev.12:6,14 says “and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days.14 But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time“.

They are born from the heavenly woman during the “1260 days“(the symbolized 3.5 years) period. The pregnancy and delivery was started from AD 70 till to now about 2000 years. How many holy people? Revelation tells us they are 144000, they keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. They are whom Jesus “make a strong covenant with”.

 John gives us another proof as corroboration to prove that the last half of “one Seven” started from AD 70.

Revevaltion 11:2 says, “but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample the holy city for forty-two months”.

So forty-two months equal to 3.5 years, it symbolic the last half of “one Seven”, started from “trample the holy city(Jerusalem)” at AD 70. So “a time, times, and half a time”, “1260 days”, “forty-two months” are the same period which is the last half(3.5) of “one Seven”. It’s also related to <The Greatest Top Tree and 7 Periods>.

These holy people have work to do, that is the ministry work and hold the testimony of Jesus. How long of the witnessing work? Rev.11:3,4 says, “And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth”.

Same as Jesus’ witnessing 3.5 years, their witnessing period is also 3.5 years(1260 days), and it is used to symbolic the last half of “One Seven”. And the two lampstands symbolic two churches, it is also related to <Seven Churches and Seven Stars> of Revelation chapter 1 to 3. This period is “a time, times, of a time”, please read it.

All above “1260 days”, “a time, times, half a time” and “42 months” are equal to three and half years(3.5), this 3.5 years is used to symbolic the last half of “Seven”. So if we combine it to the first half (symbolized by Jesus 3.5 years ministry), then the last “One Seven” will be completed, and the total “Seventy Sevens” is finished too.

But why do we combine the holy people period(1260 days, 3.5 years) into the last part of “Seventy Sevens” together? Is there any relationship with the “Seventy Sevens”?

Yes, because this vision is “about your people(Holy people) and your holy city(New Jerusalem). What will be the New Jerusalem consist of? Yes, it consists of the holy people(144000 saints), they are one of main part of New Jerusalem, so this part must be included into the “Seventy Sevens” vision.

Revelation 21:2 says, “And I saw the holy city, “new Jerusalem“, coming down out of heaven from God…”.

Rev. 21:10-12,14, “And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the “holy city Jerusalem” coming down out of heaven from God11 having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. 12 It had a great, high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and on the gates the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were inscribed.14 And the wall of the city had “twelve foundations”, and on them were the twelve names of the “twelve apostles” of the Lamb.”

And Apostle Paul also know the holy people(saints) is the God’s temple. What did he say?

1 Corinthians 3:16,17

“Do you not know that you(saints) are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? 17 If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.”

Yes, the holy city new Jerusalem was formed by 144000 holy people(saints). After the symbolized 3.5 years(1260 days) period ended, “Seventy Sevens” vision will be fulfilled completely. Please read <144000 and a great multitude> and <New Jerusalem>. When the “Seventy Sevens” is end, this will be the God’s day(the End Day) and will be “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(new Jerusalem)“. Thank you Father, Glory and Praise Father and Lord Jesus. Amen.

What is the actual timeline of the last “One Seven”? The first half(3.5) was from AD 30 to AD 70, total 40 years. And how long of the another half? We know that it started from AD70 and till to now, lasted about 2000 years. When will be the end? Matthew 24:36 says, “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only”. Actually no one knows the end date except Father, so we can’t point out on the timeline table.

Although we don’t know the end date exactly but we know if “this mission” is finished, then the last half of “one Seven” shall be ended. What is “this mission“?

Revelation 7:1-4 says, “After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, that no wind might blow on earth or sea or against any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel ascending from the rising of the sun, with the seal of the living God, and he called with a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm earth and sea, 3 saying, “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” 4 And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000“.

So when the last servant is sealed, that will be the end of the last half of “One Seven”. That is to say, makes it end of the last half of “one Seven” is all 144000 holy people are sealed completely. That’s why the last half(3.5) of “one Seven” is so long. God Father needs to wait for all His sons 144000 have been sealed, and only Father God knows who is his last son. So that’s why no one knows the End Date except Father.

What does it mean “to the end there shall be war”? Is there any war can hold about 2000 years? For it was started from AD70.

Daniel 7:21,25 “As I looked, this horn made war with the saints and prevailed over them. 25 He shall speak words against the Most High,
    and shall wear out the saints of the Most High,
and they shall be given into his hand
    for a time, times, and half a time.“.

Yes this is the war of the beast(desolator) and the saints, the war started from AD70 till to the end, end of the last “half of Seven”(a time, times, and half a time). Please read <Four Great Beasts>

What does it mean “Its end shall come with a flood”?

“Its end” means the end of “Seventy-Sevens”, it shall come with a flood. What does it mean “flood”?

Matthew 24:37,39 Jesus said “37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.39 … until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man”.

So Jesus said there will be a flood worldwide like the days of Noah when he is come(at the end of Seventy Sevens). It seems that’s happening, for the whole world is under the flood now and it has never happened after Noah’s day. That’s like a sounded trumpet and tells us “Jesus is coming, and he will arrive soon!

Finally, “he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week” means Jesus make the “New Covenant” with many(144000) started from AD33. If someone says the “One Seven” has not yet come, then that means the “New Covenant” not yet come. If someone says the “One Seven” was ended in AD36, then that means the “New Covenant” was ended in AD36 too. So the “(New) covenant with many” was effective from AD33 till to the End Day, until the last of 144000 saints has sealed, then the “New Covenant” is sealed and completed.

Therefore, all above evidence proves that “Seventy Sevens” is the symbolized period and combine with the mystery of “1260 days” “a time, times, half a time” (3.5) symbolized period too, then “Seventy Sevens” will be completed and finished.

Timeline of Seventy Sevens

Wow… so long of this topic. It has been revealed of this mystery, Let’s make it simple and have a chart to show it.

Seventy Weeks
Seventy Weeks

1. In 522BC “Seventy Sevens” started, God’s “word” had come out, firstly was “Seven Sevens” symbolic period and then was “Sixty-two Sevens” symbolic period. Wait for the anointed one.

2. In AD 30, the anointed one(Jesus) appeared. The “Sixty-nine Sevens” ended, the “One Seven” began.

3. Jesus’ 3.5 years ministry symbolic the first half(3.5) of the “One Seven”. Jesus made “covenant with many within one seven” from AD33 till to the End Day.

4. In AD 70, Jerusalem and Sanctuary destroyed, that year was marked as the half of the “One Seven”, the first half(3.5) ended, and the other half(3.5) began.

5. From AD 70, 144000 holy people began sealed during the “1260 days”(3.5) symbolic period. The another half of “One Seven” began. It’s also the period that Jesus said “sowed the wheat(sons of the kingdom) in the field”.

6. In AD ??? , the last saint of 144000 is sealed, “1260 days”(3.5 years) ended, the “One Seven” ended, and the “Seventy Sevens” ended and finished too.

There is an interesting question, why God divided the “One Seven” into two: half(3.5) and half(3.5)? Why not God define it to 1/144000, 1/12, 1/10, 1/7, 1/4 or 1/3 but half(3.5)?

Because Rev. 21:9,10 says, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb. 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God”.

Matthew 19:5,6 says, “…hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’ So they are no longer two but one flesh…”.

Ephesians 5:31,32 says, “ “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” 32 This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church(New Jerusalem).”

Because the Heavenly Kingdom is formed with 2 parts, Jesus(symbolic husband) and 144,000(or church symbolic wife; New Jerusalem). So when Jesus’ ministry finished and died(3.5 years) means the half of Heavenly Kingdom has completed. And when the last one of 144000 is sealed, another half of Heavenly Kingdom is completed too, then the establishment of Heavenly Kingdom will be completed.

This “half” does not mean the half of “time”, but means the half of “progress” or “goal” because it is the symbolic period. God shows us the key points which accomplish his will in “Seventy Sevens” , in the future we will know the actual end date of “Seventy Sevens” in the timeline.

Another interesting question is why this vision is so complicated and confusing?

Because that is God’s deliberate arrangement, for partial fulfilled but partial not fulfilled to hidden the vision until the end time. Jehovah God separated it with different parts with different format into different Bible books, hidden it like the puzzle. God wants this vision to be like this : “Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end”. So that’s why this vision is so difficult to understand.

For the truth shall reveal in the end time only, so we should expect some truths must different from what we have learned or understood. Now God reveals and shows us this vision’s meaning. That means God tells us we are now standing at the end time edge. So may we all ask heavenly father to forgive our sins, and we should repent, turn evil to good now. May we all hold testimony and help others be good, just like what Jesus did and taught us.


Let us think about the vision and the prophecy of “Seventy Sevens” of rebuild the holy city, it is not only the Jerusalem on earth but also the “New Jerusalem” in heaven revealed by Revelation. The New Jerusalem will come down from the Heaven, that means it has to finish building “physically” before coming down. So maybe this vision is also about building the holy city of New Jerusalem in heaven “physically“.

Assumption : From outgoing of God’s word in BC 522, the holy city New Jerusalem of heaven began “to restore and build… there shall be seven weeks(symbolized period)”. “Then for sixty-two weeks it(New Jerusalem) shall be built again with squares and moat”, total sixty-nine sevens and the physical holy city New Jerusalem has been built completed.

And then in the “One Seven(70th week)“, the core of New Jerusalem(the Lamb and the Bride) was begun to build started in AD 30.

The Lamb was killed in AD 33(symbolized 3.5 years), the first “half of One Seven” was finished.

And 144000 saints(Bride) are sealing in “1260 days”(symbolized 3.5 years) till to the End Day, when the last saint is sealed, then the 70th Seven is complete, then building the holy city New Jerusalem is complete and perfect success too. After that, the New Jerusalem will come down from the heaven…

Let’s Prayer

Our Heavenly Father, you are God Almighty and the only true God who reveals the hidden mystery. May we all give the Praise, Honor, Thankful to you and Jesus Christ. Amen.

“O YHWH, the great and awesome God, who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly and rebelled, turning aside from your commandments and rules”, please forgive us. Jehovah our God is full of mercy and willing to forgive, so please forgive our sins through Jesus ransom.

We are exciting for waiting the “Seventy Sevens” to be fulfilled completely, waiting the salvation, waiting the last one of 144000 to be sealed. Thanks Father, and thanks Jesus too to save all sinners including us. We don’t know how to express our love and thankful to you, that the all grace is come from you. What we can do is listen and obey your commandments, that’s the best way and it’s best for us too. our Heavenly Father, may your name be hallowed, may your kingdom come, may Seventy Sevens be completed and may the new Jerusalem complete and come too. Amen.

Prayer is also in Lord Jesus name. Amen.
