The Temple Institute in Israel has obtained five red heifers in preparation for a ceremonial cleansing of a site for the third temple. Could it be that the third temple, which has been in preparation for many years, is soon to be built? What would that mean for the fulfillment of prophecy, the rapture, and the coming of the Antichrist? These questions all hinge on the meaning of one prophecy.
Daniel’s vision of the seventy weeks is one of the most problematic prophecies of the Bible to interpret. Countless ideas have been posited with varying degrees of biblical and historical support, but all seem to be deficient in some respect. Is there a missing key that will unlock its meaning?
Could it be that, as our understanding of the covenant has grown, the elusive key to this enigmatic prophecy was unwittingly discovered, just waiting to be inserted into the keyhole of the seventieth week and turned? In this article, you will find that it just might be that the best supported aspects of every interpretation find a harmonious and unified interpretation that is specific and pointed, yet inclusive and broad at the same time.
Jesus prayed that His people, His church, would be united, but we must unite in Spirit and in truth, and that is what we see the Spirit doing now. If you have the Spirit, humbly surrender your prejudices and look up to all truth. On the other hand, if you have the truth, but lack the Spirit of uniting love, then sell your pride, buy gifts from the Lord, and partake at His table.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. (Revelation 3:22)
As the tribulation cross comes closer into view, and the tribulation becomes more intense, the Lord offers us hope in the form of an understanding of time. One of the most fundamental questions to the soul who is under duress is, “How long?” How long must we endure taunts and pressures to capitulate against our conscience? How long must we endure trials that we never expected? How long will evil prosper in the world? How long until the Lord can finally deliver His people from the enemy’s grasp?
It is the purpose of time prophecy to encourage the weary and to strengthen the weak, to redirect the wayward and embolden the righteous. There is probably no other prophecy better suited to that purpose than the prophecy of the seventy weeks, found at the end of the ninth chapter of Daniel. Much has been written regarding this fascinating prophecy, but its complexity makes it challenging to navigate.
Nevertheless, with the foundational understanding of the covenant that we have learned through the present article series, it sheds an entirely new light on the prophecy that does something very remarkable that will make this 2600-year-old prophecy come to life! This prophecy is about more than the Antichrist and the rebuilding of the third temple; it is also about the covenant of God with His people. It is about that same covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, for which we discovered associated heavenly events in some of our Final Observations regarding the comet that God used to illustrate the ark of that covenant.
As we have studied, the covenant between God and His people must be “signed” by witnesses to be valid. Those witnesses must testify that Jesus’ blood is indeed effective in cleansing them from sin. That testimony cannot be given in mere words, but it is a life testimony. The witnesses speak with their lives.
The seventy-weeks prophecy is well known as a Messianic prophecy because it points precisely to Jesus when He came to give His sacrificial offering on the cross in the seventieth week. However, did you know that there is a hidden meaning in the Hebrew expression used in the prophecy in reference to Jesus—Messiah the Prince —that gives the two witnesses a role in the same prophecy!? This is possible because the word messiah literally means “anointed”. It is the same word that David often used in reference to king Saul as the Lord’s anointed king over Israel. And prince means “a commander (as occupying the front), either civil, military or religious”. Though it certainly applies to Jesus as our anointed Priest and King, He is not the only anointed leader whom the prophecy could be indicating; the two olive trees could also fulfill it:
Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof? … Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth. (Zechariah 4:11,14)
And when the two witnesses are described in Revelation 11, they are defined precisely by these two olive trees:
And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. (Revelation 11:3-4)
The prophecy of the seventy weeks points not only to the faithful and true Witness, Jesus, who signed the covenant with His redeeming blood, but also to the two witnesses, who similarly testify with their redeemed lives. Daniel (where the seventy weeks are described) and Revelation (where the two witnesses are described) should be studied together because Revelation contains the keys that can unlock and reveal the sealed content of Daniel.
The revolutionary thing about this understanding is that the two witnesses are key end-time players. If they have a role in this prophecy, then the prophecy must tell us something about the times that we live in, when it is not necessary to dig deep into the obscure annals of ancient history to see its fulfillment. In order to appreciate its remarkable application to our times, however, it is necessary to understand some basics about the traditional Christ-centric interpretation, learning from history to provide a base for further understanding. So, without further ado, let’s start to unpack this prophecy, noting some of the challenges before resolving them with the unique solution provided by a dual application with the two witnesses.
The opening line of the prophecy includes a list of covenantal duties that must be accomplished before Jesus can redeem His people:
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. (Daniel 9:24)
This list of important “action items” are critical to the plan of salvation. Many insist that salvation was finished at the cross, and certainly that act did fulfill several of these tasks, but naturally, if the Lord had accomplished all that were necessary to take His people from the earth, then it begs the question, why didn’t He? The Lord does not arbitrarily wait. He is waiting for something to be accomplished, and that something is the unfinished work of this prophecy! Until these covenantal duties are completed, Jesus can’t redeem His children from this sin-sick planet!
Most count six acts in the list, but one of them—sealing up the vision and “prophet” (as it would be better translated)—may be counted as two separate items, in which case there would be seven, for a completed work! Interestingly, these two items would naturally go together. Wrapping up the vision would also put a seal on the prophet who would fulfill the last acts of the covenant. But we will see how there was a major disruption that prevented that they could both be fulfilled with Jesus’ ministry.
Take note that the word used for “weeks” doesn’t specify a time unit, but simply refers to a count of seven, which is the number of completion, suggesting that this prophecy has something to do with bringing a perfect conclusion to transgression and reconciliation. The very duration of Jesus’ three-and-a-half-year ministry, being half of seven, indicates that it was not complete. A certain “prophet” must come who would finish the part of the covenant that man can do.
The opening expression could well be translated (as some Bibles similarly do), “Seventy sevens are decreed upon thy people and upon thy holy city.” Seventy literal weeks (sevens of days), of course, would be far too little time to span from the rebuilding of Jerusalem after the Babylonian exile until Jesus came as “Messiah.” Therefore, the sevens would naturally represent sevens of years—at least in this context. These seventy weeks were allotted for:
holding back the rebellion (expressed according to the meaning of the Hebrew words),
making an end of sins,
making reconciliation for iniquity,
bringing in everlasting righteousness,
sealing up the vision,
sealing up the prophet, and
anointing the most holy.
That is quite a list! Who would be able to do all that? At first glance, we might assume that only Jesus could fulfill them at the cross, but let’s consider them carefully. Did Jesus hold back the rebellion—the great controversy between Himself and Satan? Its focus changed, but the war has not abated until today after nearly two thousand years. Likewise, how have sins ended? Which group of people has stopped sinning? Oh, if only such a group would manifest themselves en masse! Then the whole world could see that Jesus’ sacrifice is definitively effective! We will have more to say about this, especially in Part II.
With divine order and mathematical precision, God allocated a certain time frame for such a testimony of victory over sin to be given for the covenant. It is a time for those who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. It is only possible to keep the commandments (10) by faith (×) in Jesus (7), like the seventy elders who went up with Moses to Mt. Sinai and saw God, or the seventy disciples whom Jesus sent out to work miracles by faith. Furthermore, the context of a court of justice is indicated by the expression seventy sevens, because to swear (as one would give a sworn testimony in court) literally means to “seven oneself”. In other words, the duration of the divine decree signifies that God, who is the One on trial—swears by (7×) those who keep His commandments (10) by faith (×) in Jesus Christ (7), that the covenantal actions would be accomplished in that time (= 490 days or years). Take a moment to ponder that! It is as though God is saying, “If I can find faithful, obedient witnesses, I can fulfill the plan to take My people home.”
Jesus was the Forerunner, the first and only Example of a complete life of perfect obedience to God’s law by faith, therefore this span of time applies first to Him alone. Indeed, the seventieth week of the prophecy points very specifically to the ministry and death of Jesus Christ.
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: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. (Daniel 9:25)
In this verse, two subdivisions of the period are given, accounting for all but the last week. Seven weeks, or 49 years, marked the time when the city’s wall and street—the main area of the city—would be built, adding that it would be done in troublous times. Then after the sixty-ninth week, Messiah the Prince (an anointed Leader) would come on the scene. Jesus ministered for three and a half years after beginning His public ministry. That is exactly half of the seventieth week. Then He gave Himself as a willing sacrifice to be crucified. Sadly, His own people rejected Him and could not testify on His behalf, because they did not have the humility to show faith through belief. By denying Him as the Messiah, they precluded that they could fulfill their part of the plan of salvation to a conclusion.
What a terrible situation this represented! Had the Jews accepted Him, in the remaining three and a half years, they could have produced many witnesses to silence every argument against the efficacy of the covenant blessing they had been entrusted with. But because of their stubborn resistance, a great delay was introduced. This is expressed in the following verse of the prophecy, as many commentators have explained.
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. (Daniel 9:26)
The first line here (in bold above) speaks of Jesus being severed from His Father for our sin—when every earthly support was taken from Him (He was cut off). The rest of the verse speaks of the consequences of Israel refusing to fulfill their role to produce witnesses for the Lord. The Romans (“the people of the prince”) ultimately came and destroyed the city and the sanctuary, leaving it thoroughly desolated.
And this is where it really starts to get interesting, but care is needed, so that we do not do violence to the prophecy. At the point of their rejection of the Savior, there is a period of “unreckoned time” as some call it, when the events of the rest of the verse take place. It is not bound to the covenantal week. Those people of the Roman prince (Titus by name) had no relation to the Jewish covenant, and so did not act according to its time.
This is where many fail to consider one important point. God specified, knowing the end from the beginning, that there would be seventy weeks. He knew that the last covenantal week would witness the crucifixion and rejection of Jesus before reaching the end. Why would He specify seventy weeks if the prophecy stopped at sixty-nine and a half weeks? Rather, logic would tell us that there must still have been something after Jesus was crucified to mark the last point on the timeline in accordance with the prophecy, even if the list of actions had not been completely fulfilled.
Indeed, there was just such an event, and it is given considerable attention in the New Testament: the stoning of Stephen.
Instead of a glorious finale to the vision where the age-old rebellion would be held back and their sins remitted at the conclusion of the seventy weeks, the Bible records a very different outcome. The clues from History do not give us a precise date for this event, but it was within range of the end of the seventieth week when the Jewish rulers were overcome with demonic rage against Stephen, whom the Lord had sent to them. When he saw the heavens opened, they stopped their ears, took up stones to kill him, and thus closed heaven to themselves and instead brought on their heads the blood of the last prophet sent to Israel.
Many recognize Stephen as the first Christian martyr but underestimate the importance that the Bible gives to his role by including his long account of God’s covenant with Israel—the longest sermon recorded in the New Testament. His vision was one of the Son of man standing in judgment, as the nation’s allocated time expired by divine decree, and they could no longer be God’s chosen people to fulfill the covenant. (It follows that we need not put much emphasis on literal Israel anymore for the fulfillment of prophecy, as it is tempting to do. Thus, for example, the 144,000 end-time witnesses cannot be from literal Israel but must come from the Israel of faith!)
(While there is some disagreement regarding which decree to start the timeline with and how exactly it should be measured to reach Jesus’ crucifixion, this structure is the most straight-forward approach, with the baptism of Jesus and the stoning of Stephen fitting to the theme and timing of the prophecy.) Israel had reached the limit of God’s forbearance. Remember Jesus’ words to Peter about how long to forgive:
Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. (Matthew 18:21-22)
Jesus knew the formula for the time of grace from Daniel’s vision of the seventy weeks! Unfortunately, because of the previous lines of the prophecy that introduce a long delay, many conclude that the last verse continues with the description of the Roman prince, but in fact, it repeats and expands on the same theme presented in the previous verse with different detail—the Messiah being cut off before the covenantal work was finished. The context here is God’s covenant with His people, and no Roman could participate! The convoluted language used is not helpful, but here it is with some Strong’s definitions for clarity:
And he shall confirm [“be strong” in] the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading [“edge or extremity”, that is, the limit] of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation [“completion”], and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. (Daniel 9:27)
It is Jesus whose death put an end to the sacrificial service, and it refers to the middle of the week, when He was crucified. If we express this verse using simpler language and compare it with the previous verse, it may help to understand:
And after threescore and two weeks
And the Messiah shall keep the covenant with many for one week,
shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself:
and in the midst of the week he shall end the sacrificial system,
and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary;
and because the cup of wrath is full, he shall make it desolate,
and the end thereof shall be with a flood,
even until the completion [of the vision],
and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
and the decreed wrath shall be poured upon the desolate city.
Their city Jerusalem would be made desolate until a faithful generation could be found who would receive Him corporately and the prophecy could be completed. Then the fierceness of God’s wrath (“that [which is] determined”) would finally be poured out upon the desolate city. Interestingly, many versions translate the last word as “desolator” referring to the Romans who desolated the city. The difference is diminished when one understands that in the end, the Romans, Babylon, and Jerusalem, blend (through typology) into a single, end-time entity of falsehood and apostasy (much like the soon-to-open Abrahamic Family House, consisting of a Roman church, a “Babylonian” mosque, and a Jewish synagogue).
Because of the inclusion of events in the prophecy that do not fit into the timeframe of the seventy weeks it stipulates, many have concluded that the prophecy must terminate with the destruction of Jerusalem. Others suggest that it points to the end of time and the destruction of the world in connection with the Antichrist. Which is true?
These are not baseless ideas, and sincere believers who seek to understand God’s word with a humble heart adhere to some of these disparate views. If it speaks of the end of the world, then it is of vital importance to understand it! Yet, either idea alone lacks a complete fulfillment of the prophecy. We can’t ignore that the prophecy speaks of terrible desolation and destruction. Yet, that did not occur within the seventy-week timeframe that ended with the stoning of Stephen, and if the last week were severed from the rest of the prophecy, it would do violence to the continuous flow of time and weaken this clear time prophecy to point to an unspecified time in the future.
However, even the best efforts to try to apply the whole prophecy to any single timeframe results in an interpretation that never completely lines up with the specifications. That is one major reason why there are so many conflicting ideas in relation to this prophecy!
It helps to consider that God does not think in just one track, and it seems that His prophecies are rarely limited to a one-to-one relationship with their fulfillments. The conclusion that we can draw from these things is that the entire prophecy of seventy weeks must repeat again—and not just the seventieth week alone. Then the prophecy can be completed the second time around, building upon the fulfillment of those acts that were already accomplished in the seventieth week of the historical application. This, however, would require every single time marker in the prophecy to align again for the end-times application of the seventy weeks—a tall order, to be sure! Nevertheless, you will see that this is precisely what God has done with His two witnesses.
One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established. (Deuteronomy 19:15)
The Lord’s ways are higher than our ways, and when we look up, He leads us into all truth. With an understanding of the clock in heaven that points to the two witnesses (Smyrna and Philadelphia) and their cross, and by comparing that with the pattern of the historical seventy weeks, we can determine how the timeline could fit.
The thrice-confirmed date on the three clocks of the Godhead is March 8 (of 2023). This must be an exceedingly important date! In each clock, it was at a point closely connected with sacrifice. What if the seventy-week prophecy gives us the clue that this point of March 8, 2023, should fall to the middle of the week, rather than the end, just as Jesus was crucified in the middle of the seventieth week?
If we assume that there is a second period of three and a half days after the one that is marked out as comet K2 crosses the two beams of the cross in the Horologium, and that these together comprise the seventieth week, then we have an anchor for a possible end-times application of the seventy weeks. Filling in the dates according to the pattern of the historical prophecy, the day-wise application would look something like this:
How would the last week fit with the heavenly clocks in this scenario? The last day of the seventieth week would be Sabbath, March 11, 2023. However, when we look closely at the heavenly clock, we can see that the end of the three and a half days defined by the comet passes a few hours into the Hebrew day of March 11/12, 2023. On March 12, 2023, comet K2 escapes beyond the clockface, in the same way that comet BB entered the clockface on June 12, 2021, when we called for a high rapture watch (without yet knowing about this Horologium clock):
Perhaps our rapture watch should be especially for March 12, 2023, rather than March 8, without diminishing the importance of the 8th. If so, then at the completion of the seventy weeks, the righteous would see heaven opened like Stephen and would heed the voice that calls them to “Come up hither!” on March 12, 2023. At that time, final desolations would be poured out on the rejecters of God’s covenant with man (no longer just the Jews), since the covenant would then be fulfilled.
But what “city” would the prophecy be referring to, that would be desolated at the end of these seventy weeks? Is it the same Jerusalem in modern-day Israel that was formed in 1948? Certainly not! Once God rejected them as His people, the nation of Israel became a metaphor for spiritual Israel, so we should rather look to a nation where His people of spiritual Israel are concentrated today. The “capital” of the Christian world, the body of spiritual Israel, should center around the Protestant faith, and there is one highly favored republic in the world that was founded on Protestant principles and satisfies the conditions of this prophecy (and others). For many years, it has been the most influential nation of the world politically, economically, and militarily: the United States of America.
So far, we have only looked at the future aspect of this possible timeline, as it pertains to the seventieth week, but the dates of the earlier part of the timeline have already passed. We would need important and appropriate events that would fit the biblical descriptions on those days, if this timeline—including the seventieth week, which is still in the future—would be confirmed.
Amazingly, one need not search long to discover the “decree” at the beginning of these seventy weeks. Normally, the United States Congress does not meet after hours—especially at the end of the work week—but on Friday, November 5, 2021, there was a special case. President Biden’s historic, trillion-dollar infrastructure bill was on the floor, and he was working the phones late into the night to ensure he had the votes he needed for it to pass. Finally, just before midnight, the bill passed the House, meaning that it would become law—lacking just the guaranteed signature of the president himself.
On Saturday morning, November 6, 2021, an exuberant Joe Biden made the announcement that this “monumental step forward” would build up the ailing electric grid, water systems, roads, bridges, ports, broadband, public transportation and more. He began his speech by invoking the phrase “infrastructure week,” which has come to represent the many failed attempts to initiate that which it promised: to “restore and build”.
This decree beginning the seventy weeks is a perfect fit to the biblical description, and notice that it confirms what the holy city, Jerusalem, represents in this prophecy: the United States, that lamb-like beast with two horns, representing its civil and moral power as a republic with Protestant values.
That’s not the only date to consider, however. The Lord specifies multiple points in time to serve as confirmations, to give one ample evidence on which to anchor his faith. This is one thing that has made this prophecy so challenging, because all the points need to fit with history to result in a valid application. This has led to many interpretations (besides what already results from the ambiguity of the language itself). If another point on the timeline can be anchored to a fulfilled event, then we can have greater confidence that the whole timeline is correct.
The next point is the seven-week marker on Saturday, December 25, 2021. The nation was enjoying the pagan “Christmas” holiday—which is really a celebration of Nimrod’s birthday. But on that day, many were watching a different star than the one atop their Christmas tree; on TV and computer screens around the world, spectators were watching the beginning of a new era. The ten-billion-dollar James Webb Space Telescope was launching into space to peer back to the early universe in search of clues of its origin. While all may appreciate the beautiful images of God’s creation that it captures, the telescope represents much more than a scientific endeavor. As President Biden proudly repeated regarding the “international collaboration” led by the US, “there’s nothing beyond our capacity.” This is remarkably similar to the biblical narrative of Nimrod’s original tower of Babel itself:
And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. (Genesis 11:4-6)
In the historical application, the first seven weeks were allocated for building a city and restoring the culture. Would it be reasonable if in the end-time application, they pointed to the building of a tower whose top reaches heaven? This would suggest a relationship between the United States and Babylon, which is widely supported by many who have the Spirit of prophecy today. Webb’s three categories of six (6 + 6 + 6) golden mirrors, shielded from any light from the sun, form an immense eye, whose first gaze into the heavens was calibrated on the dragon, thus being “imprinted” with its image from first sight. This telescope is none other than the diabolical all-seeing eye that can be found throughout all cultures and time, from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics to the dollar bill.
This might be evidence that the tower of Babel (i.e., Babylon) has been rebuilt and its top has reached unto heaven. At the same time, it is also symbolic of the Babylonian image of the golden man, celebrating what man can achieve, and his intent to reign eternally without successor. That is the ultimate goal of the endeavor to find habitable planets: colonization.
God would not be against man doing all that they would imagine if they exercised self-restraint to keep their imaginations within the boundaries of the morality prescribed by the Ten Commandments. But incorrigible man covets power and puts self above God. Today, man declares that he doesn’t need God; he is giddy with the advances of human technology, contending that “nothing is beyond our capacity.” He peers toward the beginning of the universe from its end, with covetous eyes like a child wanting to drive his father’s car. Man wants the power to be his own creator. Today, humanity tinkers with the microscopic genetic foundation of life, and tweaks the grand orbits of space rocks. What will become of such childish reaching for God’s creative “steering wheel”? Are we prepared to take responsibility for such actions? Can we see the end from the beginning?
Two historic “once in a generation” events—as Biden dubbed his infrastructure bill—came exactly at the times specified according to a 2600-year-old prophecy in the Bible, with the seventieth week anchored in time by God’s clock in the Horologium constellation, all fitting very well to the biblical symbolism. These are reasons to believe that the modern seventy weeks point not only to the United States, but to the “international collaboration” of the global beast system, a.k.a. Babylon, represented by the tower of Babel and the golden image of the king of Babylon. Here again, we find that Babylon, Jerusalem, and apostate Christianity are blended into the same prophecy, as though they are the same city. It is not unlike the prophecy of the two witnesses, which describes “the great city” where Jesus was crucified (Jerusalem) in terms of Sodom (like the US, leading the world with its federal protections for sodomy) and polytheistic Egypt (like pluralist Babylon):
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. (Revelation 11:8)
At this point, we need to step back to see a bit more of the big picture. When Jesus was crucified in the middle of the seventieth week in the historical timeline, the tables that were turned against Him by the rebellion of His people introduced a great time-fork in the course of world history. The covenantal prophecy of the seventy weeks would not be completely fulfilled within the specified timeframe, leading to the eventual desolation and destruction of the city, temple, and people, and necessitating a great postponement of deliverance. The sanctuary would need to be cleansed before the covenant could be reestablished. And in fact, this prophecy of the seventy weeks comes in the context of a much longer prophecy set forth in the previous chapter of the book of Daniel, and this longer prophecy gives the time until the sanctuary should be cleansed and the seventy-week timeline of the covenant re-initiated.
Stepping back to look at the big picture, we realize that the prophecy of the seventy weeks is a detailed part of the longer 2300-day prophecy Daniel was given in the previous chapter:
Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. (Daniel 8:13-14)
The theme presented in the prophecy of the seventy weeks is so momentous and important that it occupies more than one dramatic vision. This means that if we have a correct interpretation of the 70 weeks, we should be able to understand how the whole timeframe of 2300 days fits together, and not just the 70 weeks alone! This is something that few Bible students even attempt, yet the relationship between the two prophecies is clear, as we will see.
This adds another layer of complexity to interpreting the seventy weeks, because they are really part of an unwieldy timeline of 2300 years that spans more than one third of human history! With a proper perspective, it falls neatly into place, however. Let’s look briefly at why we connect these two prophecies, and how this has historically been done, because this will give us insight when we take the next step and apply the 2300 days to our newfound end-time sequence!
Daniel was very affected by the vision of Chapter 8, where the power that would bring desolation was emphasized, and he was seeking to understand it, but no one could:
And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king’s business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it. (Daniel 8:27)
Sometime later, after learning about seventy years that were prophesied for Jerusalem to remain in desolation, Daniel sought the Lord in the long prayer recorded in Chapter 9. And it was then that the angel returned to tell him about the seventy weeks, pointing him to the true application of his earlier vision. Therefore, we must consider the seventy weeks in the context of that vision of Daniel 8, which focuses on the development of the Roman power that would ultimately crucify Jesus and destroy the sanctuary. When we add this vision as another column to our previous verse comparison, the similarities can be clearly seen:
Yea, he [the growing Roman power] magnified himself even to the prince of the host [Jesus],
and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away [because the Romans crucified Jesus]
and the place of his sanctuary was cast down [Strong’s: “thrown out, down, or away”].
And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of [Israel’s] transgression [because of unfaithfulness to the covenant and rejecting Jesus],
and it cast down the truth to the ground [persecuting the Christians]; and it practised, and prospered.
The earlier prophecy refers to the same events, but from a different perspective. As it continues, the familiar cry of the persecuted saints is heard, echoing Daniel’s own longing to understand the time:
Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host [people] to be trodden under foot? (Daniel 8:13)
The answer to this question should allow one to know how long the desolation would continue, the which came as a result of the Jews’ rejection of Jesus. The duration given in answer is quite long:
And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. (Daniel 8:14)
To be consistent (since the two prophecies are connected) we must apply the 2300 days the same way as the seventy weeks. That is, applying seventy literal weeks means we must apply 2300 literal days, while for the historical application, 490 years would imply 2300 years. The starting point can be deduced by the fact that the seventy weeks are said to be “cut off”—from this longer prophetic context.
Seventy weeks are determined [Strong’s: “cut off” or “decreed”] upon thy people and upon thy holy city,… (Daniel 9:24)
In other words, those seventy weeks of years overlap one end of the 2300-year timeline; they are a segment designated for a particular purpose (as we discussed in previous sections). In the 1830s and ’40s, this was one of the key features of William Miller’s calculations that spurred the Great Awakening. In the historical scenario, beginning with the decree of Artaxerxes in 457 BC to rebuild Jerusalem, the 2300 years extended until 1844, when the cleansing of the sanctuary was to take place according to the prophecy.
It was at the William Miller Farm in New England where many of his followers, called Millerites, came to live with him, and ultimately watched with him on “ascension rock” for Jesus to come and cleanse the earth as the sanctuary.
We can excuse Miller, though, for believing that the cleansing of the sanctuary represented the cleansing of the world by fire in the last days, because the pattern of the destruction of Jerusalem and its sanctuary indeed illustrates the destruction of the world by fire at the end of time. It may yet be accurate to relate the cleansing of the sanctuary with the end of the world; it was just not the application that fit for the end of the historical 2300-day prophecy.
If we were to apply the 2300-day prophecy to our seventy literal weeks, should we count 2300 days beginning from President Biden’s command to restore the US infrastructure? Not necessarily! Keep in mind that the Bible does not specify which end of the 2300 days the 70 weeks were “cut off” from. Furthermore, there is ambiguity in the expression, “then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.” It can signify either when the cleansing is to start, or when it should be finished. As it turned out, the cleansing that came in Miller’s day was not a completion as he expected, but a beginning. This means that for the end-time application, when the vision is sealed up, the cleansing that has been ongoing should finally be completed!
As the Millerites gathered on a farm in anticipation of the Lord’s return at His appointed time according to Daniel’s vision of the 2300 days, so also there is a farm where people have gathered in anticipation of the Lord’s return according to the appointed time in the end-time application of the same prophecy. That farm can be identified by navigating the timeline to its beginning. Subtracting 2300 days from the last day of the seventy weeks on March 11, 2023, we come to November 22, 2016:
The WhiteCloudFarm.org website went live simultaneously with the publication of our first article there, reminding the world that God is not just Love, but also Time! We chose that day because it was the second possibility of the seventh day of the feast of tabernacles, exactly one biblical month after the pre-tribulation rapture opportunity that was turned down, as some have dreamed (explained in United in the Tribulation Cross). Soon, we discovered that it was also the beginning of the sounding of the trumpets in heaven.
The Lord not only tells His people when to wait, but He tells them where His end-time fold is, where His sheep should gather, virtually. This is not said lightly, as if it were an advertising ploy to make our numbers go up. We can only say this because we see the biblical significance that God has given to this ministry. We had no idea that the second Miller was associated with the 2300-day prophecy like his predecessor, or even that the 2300 days would have another end-time application, but once we traced the biblical timeline back to its beginning, it was blushingly obvious.
Let’s be clear about something, though. In God’s extended church family, we all have different roles and functions as different members of the body. The Lord may be pointing to this ministry in a special way, making it more prominent prophetically, but we ourselves also need the rest of the body. We were originally part of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, which coalesced from a variety of 19th-century Protestant churches at the time of William Miller and the Great Advent Awakening. But “time messages” were never popular.
This brings us to address an important point that the Lord seems to be driving home: understanding time is not just about dates and calculations, because that mindset assumes that the Lord has a fixed, immutable plan for when He will come, and it can never change. With that prevalent assumption, man’s relationship to God is undermined, as though His return is just about time and not about His people. But God is a personal Father, and the Lord our Fiancé. He is Time, so He works on a schedule, but He is Love, so He schedules His time according to His bride!
Is she ready to meet Him? If so, then mark your calendars, because the Lord has set the date to bring us to the wedding! But if there are no witnesses available to sign the marriage covenant, as we can discern His law to be, then the time will pass yet again, and He will have to come up with new, even more ingenious ways to fulfill His word. How long will we wait? How long must we make the Lord delay His wedding? Let us stand up as a people and give a unified testimony of unshakable love for Him and for each other, come what may!
Through the years, the Lord has led us through many studies and developed our understanding of important themes. For example, consider the mark of the beast. Many aren’t concerned about receiving the mark because they know it comes after the rapture of the church—and technically, they may be right. However, what they don’t consider is that there is also the image and the number of the beast that Christians should likewise shun, and these have certainly already come! Have you understood the differences? In general, you can learn here about the time of our visitation, and you might understand your own dreams better as a result.
Did the Lord not say, “Come out of her, My people”? In our next article, you will understand why this command is given, and who exactly “she” is in our modern context. (Be sure to subscribe to our Alnitak Newsletter on Telegram to be notified when it is published!) Should the Lord’s sheep come out of Babylon to go hungry and thirsty, aimlessly wandering in the wilderness in search of nourishment, or does God show them a specific farm where there is green pasture (present truth), gentle waters (the stirring of the Spirit), and a generous table spread (with substantial spiritual nourishment) before our enemies?
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. (John 10:16)
Will you come to the Refuge in Goshen? The Invitation is still open, but time is quickly drawing to a close. The changes in the world that we have witnessed since the Covid woes began are only increasing, and soon Babylon will collapse entirely. Even if you don’t yet sense much physical destruction—outside Ukraine—what about economic destruction? The fall of Babylon, after all, is described not only in physical terms in the seventh plague, but also in financial terms in Revelation 18.
This raises another question. Could there be a financial aspect to Daniel’s prophecy that we haven’t understood so far (given that it relates to the fall of modern Babylon)? But how would God accomplish that? Get ready to see the amazing beauty in how the Lord assembles His word!
It is often the case with prophecy that the same words refer to more than one theme at the same time. That is the fingerprint of divine ingenuity. Yet it is all wrapped in one concise, organized package. God is a God of order, beauty, symmetry, and profound depth of meaning.
As we look at His creation, we often find similar, repeating patterns that impart beauty—from the majestic, spiraling galaxies to the microscopic, fluttering snowflake. Many plants, for example, reveal this self-similarity in their structure with one part looking remarkably like another, but in a different orientation or scale. The same is true of God’s written word.
Hebrew poetry very frequently uses reflective symmetry in theme. The last verse quoted above gives a ready example:
This literary structure is called chiasmus, and it naturally draws the attention to the “point” of the word-pyramid. For example, the key point in the verse above is not so much that the Shepherd has other sheep, but that He must gather them, and they will hear His voice. Have you heard His voice in this series, on this website, or by the Spirit, through dreams, visions, or prophetic messages given to yourself or others? Like dreams and visions, the Revelation (itself a vision) contains numerous symbols and complex self-similarities, but the Lord is giving light through heavenly signs to understand it today far better than we ever have in earth’s history! Through it all, He is leading your attention to one place: the foundation of His kingdom and His covenant of salvation, which is His law, His covenant, His marriage contract.
Symmetry in the Bible appears on larger scales as well, such as in the entire book of Revelation.
We have often referred to that symmetry, which has a section in the middle that is repeated sequentially (red and green arrows in the diagram below) but is otherwise reflected completely. This is like what we see in the two extended timelines we have considered, where the 70 weeks are reflected as a whole, but are internally sequential (with the seventieth week, where the cross is featured, at the end):
In our considerations so far, the prophetic events within the 490 days were recognized according to a sequential layout, like the green and red arrows in the Revelation chiasm above.
However, this is not the only structure visible in the book of Revelation! It is also chiastic in a more direct way, without the crossover. Notice the emphasis on the covenant and the law of God at the foundational point in this arrangement!
In a similar way, we could also mirror the 2300-day timeline in a fully chiastic fashion, such that the seventy weeks would not just reflect to the opposite end of the timeline, but even the internal layout of the seventy weeks would be mirrored. Would this make sense and have a biblical precedent?
If there were relevant events on the dates of this fully mirrored timeline (the lower one shown on the right in the image above), then it would validate this dual arrangement for the seventy weeks of the two witnesses. They are a lot like twins after all—distinct, yet united—so it fits conceptually. They both keep the commandments and have the testimony of Jesus Christ, but each collective witness expresses their testimony in a different form with different supporting events.
Note, first of all, that by reversing the seventy-week timeline, it now must start with the end of the prophetic description. Thus, the 2300 days begin with the cleansing of the sanctuary on November 22, 2016 (and the 70 weeks end with the decree to restore and build Jerusalem).
Does that make sense? Was the sanctuary, or temple, cleansed with the debut of our new website? Indeed, it is logical that after the sacrifice of Philadelphia, the temple of God—which is His bride—was finally cleansed as mankind demonstrated the kind of sacrificial love that flows from a pure heart.
It is not the faulty and failure-prone human frames that God wants to direct your attention to. It is the divine instruction that He first gave to us through His Spirit that He wants you to have also so that, by faith, you can become a part of the collective two witnesses, which the WhiteCloudFarm.org website apparently represents according to the seventy-week prophecy. The Lord speaks to all His people, but He has given to us a key message that the rest of the body is missing: the message of Time.
The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes. (Psalms 118:22-23)
The 2300 days connect this website with the fulfillment of the seventy weeks of the last days, which began with Biden’s historic infrastructure bill. With this timeline, God is leading the two witnessing churches, for whom the 70 weeks are given, to direct their attention to this website for instructions in serving as faithful witnesses. Here is a cleansed sanctuary, where you can learn a vital message for this, your hour, from the clocks of God and His calendar. The Father needs you to witness for Him that His salvation by grace really works to save from sin, and not just in sin, and serving as a witness is what our website is all about.
But as we look at the seventy-week timeline in full chiastic reflection (i.e., reversed), the beginning of the seventy weeks on November 6, 2021, still coincides with the same event of Biden’s infrastructure law. Shouldn’t we have an event that fits a different prophetic theme in this arrangement, corresponding to the end of Daniel’s prophecy, which says that “unto the end of the war desolations are determined”? What is it about Biden’s infrastructure law that could have such a desolating influence?
You know that in legislative work, it seems there are always hidden agendas stowed away deep inside the many pages of legalese. The infrastructure law is no exception. It contains legislation regarding cryptocurrencies—and particularly bitcoin—that is positively detrimental. It requires cryptocurrency exchanges to directly notify the Internal Revenue Service (the IRS, the tax office of the United States) about crypto transactions. The Treasury Department clearly believes that not everyone is reporting like they’re supposed to, and they don’t want to lose out on possible tax revenue!
On the financial battlefront, bitcoin is not just a new technology; it is a bastion of freedom. Embodied in its cryptographic algorithms are principles of God’s kingdom: unwavering integrity, personal sovereignty, honesty, transparency. Since the fall of Babylon is described in financial terms in Revelation 18, it stands to reason that God would have a financial system in the last days that serves to represent His kingdom, which can be instrumental in rewarding Babylon double. Perhaps this is why it is El Salvador, the country whose name means, “the Savior,” that was first among nations to adopt bitcoin as legal tender. It is not to magnify any saving grace of that nation, but just God’s way of bringing the attention of His people to the knowledge of the Savior’s financial system on earth.
It should come as no surprise, then, that the beastly “big brother” Babylonian banking behemoth is doing all in its power to overcome bitcoin and ruin it. That is exactly the intent we see in Biden’s infrastructure law. The nation could no longer tolerate bitcoin’s “open door to heaven” (“to the moon,” as some say), and what the ancients did to Stephen is what is being done to bitcoin:
Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: … (Acts 7:57-58)
At the point on the timeline (November 6, 2021), corresponding to when Stephen was stoned, the law was announced that decreed death to bitcoin’s dollar value. Thus began the true “infrastructure week” while Biden’s infrastructure bill with negative implications for bitcoin was awaiting his signature. For about three and a half days, the bitcoin price continued on its upward course, pushing up the all-time high to nearly $70,000 until on November 9, 2021, its bullish momentum was overcome by the desolating influence of that news, and the bitcoin price began its downward plunge, which has drawn out into a long bear market.
How fitting that the prophecy says that in the midst of the week (November 9, 2021), an “anointed leader” of the crypto space, having just reached its all-time high would be cut off. From that time until this writing, bitcoin has lost more than 70% of its value. It is reminiscent of Jesus, who was welcomed in Jerusalem by the masses who would have made Him King, but then a few days later was seen nailed to a cross in ignominy by the rule-makers. Meanwhile, the US Dollar, like the Pagan Roman army, gains strength and prospers:
And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. (Daniel 8:24)
The role of an anointed, or approved leader of a people is to provide for them new strength and better principles of government. If we understand the prophecy in symbolic terms of personification, the welcoming of bitcoin—the only cryptocurrency with a “virgin birth” and “unknown father”—as the “anointed leader” of the new era of money, would suggest welcoming new efficiency and improved protocol, which is what the latest upgrade, called Taproot did when it went live on November 14, 2021. This protocol upgrade and Biden’s infrastructure bill frame the seventieth week like two bookends. To put the importance of the Taproot upgrade into perspective: in its roughly 12-year lifespan, the last time such an upgrade had been made was when bitcoin nodes voted to adopt the Segregated Witness code in 2017.
The attack against bitcoin represents its cross and the beginning of the time of trouble through which God’s people must endure—“troublous times” that some were not expecting to go through. This is the opportunity to prove the efficacy of God’s plan of salvation. Will you remain standing as a witness for God? Whether we are called to serve as martyrs or walk through the valley of the shadow of death, let our testimony ever be clear that we will give all for the Lord. Some are receiving prophetic words from the Lord that indicate that there will be an upsurge of martyrs in the time ahead. This is the time when God’s people must shine like stars in the darkness of the night that is increasing upon this world.
Bitcoin stands as a symbol for the 144,000—God’s last generation of people who have not effectively understood their role so far! It points to what they must endure in reality in the little time that remains ahead of us—if the Lord is to come at the end of this time that has been cut off for them. If they do not fulfill their role, then we can expect that God will smite all of Christendom with a curse similar to what happened to Israel. May that not be the case!
And what is coming ahead? Where is the temple that should be desolated at the end of the prophetic period? The seventieth week of the prophecy points especially to the role of an anointed one, as we have seen, but the other time-markers of the prophecy refer more to events relating to the city. Now let’s look carefully at what the prophecy tells us about the coming time, because those parts of this reversed timeline that relate to the city (and thus, the temple within it), point to the future!
With the five red heifers that recently arrived in Israel and the announcement of a two-state solution, every Christian can see that the end is very quickly approaching—or so we hope, because no one wants to extend the trouble any longer than is absolutely necessary. The red heifer sacrifice is needed in order to for the Jews to prepare the building site for their third temple—a temple where many believe the Antichrist will sit and declare himself as God, whom the Jews would believe is the Messiah.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)
With the death of Queen Elizabeth II after a 70-year reign like the 70 years that Israel was in Babylonian captivity, it has reignited the idea that has been circulating that King Charles III could abdicate the throne and let Prince William become the king. The reason this is significant to many is because they recognize occult signs that suggest Prince William could be the Antichrist. He was born on the summer solstice (when there was also a solar eclipse) to Princess Diana, whom many recognize was killed as a pagan sacrifice and worshipped as the goddess of the Ephesians mentioned in the Bible. And Prince William’s wedding, which the Queen was personally involved in preparing, also had many occult symbols and numerological hints.
We have taught that the Antichrist is Pope Francis, the serpent-bearer, but we also considered what all the hype about his recent trip to L’Aquila could have meant, when he visited the tomb of the precedent-setting pope who was first in history to resign centuries ago. Of course, the pope denied any intent to resign, but that doesn’t mean there was no hidden meaning in the visit. Could it be that it is Satan in him who is “resigning” from his octogenarian body to assume a younger one? King Charles III (and/or his son, should he abdicate like Pope Benedict XVI did before Satan came to Francis) could be the one. This would also resemble the satanic equivalent of God the Father giving all things into the hands of His Son.
Indeed, we also recognize that God was pointing to the crown with the comet O3—the one that traced the ark of the covenant earlier this year, representing the millstone that was cast into the sea pointing to the downfall of Babylon. It was in the constellation of Corona Borealis—the northern crown, which is oriented to rest on the very head of the serpent that Ophiuchus (Pope Francis) bears!
Things are definitely shaping up for the Antichrist to rule the world. The question is just how we relate to that, and when it will take place. Many Christians understand the prophecy of the seventieth week to point forward to the Antichrist and a covenant he will make with literal Israel for seven years. This is because of Daniel’s mention of “the people of the prince that shall come” who would destroy the (rebuilt) temple, making it desolate until the very end.
In light of the connection between these seventy weeks and the prophecy of the 2300 days, we can understand something more clearly in relation to the symmetry of God’s word. The 2300 days were given as an answer to how long the desolation of the vision would persist:
Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host [people] to be trodden under foot? And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. (Daniel 8:13-14)
This is speaking about the desolation that began when Israel rejected the Savior, who declared their sanctuary desolate:
Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. (Matthew 23:38-24:1)
It is the absence of Jesus that makes a temple desolate. And this rejection was directly connected with the Lord’s covenant with the Jews and the seventy weeks, but especially with the 2300 years! It is this longer prophecy that speaks about the Roman power and gives the time for the Rome-instigated desolation. It follows that the end-times desolation by the (Roman) Antichrist would be accomplished within the repeated 2300 days rather than after it. How should we understand that?
As we explained in United in the Tribulation Cross, the pre-tribulation rapture was canceled by prayer, and we all entered a time of tribulation that has been getting progressively worse. That means that the Antichrist can and should come in our time, and not anymore after we leave. Now, we can hope to leave after or amid the tribulation when Jesus comes, which we expect in March of 2023, instead of at the canceled pre-trib rapture of 2016. You might be thinking that it is impossible for the temple to be rebuilt in the short time until March of 2023, let alone sooner, to allow the Antichrist to sit there and declare himself to be God. But don’t forget Paul’s admonition to the Corinthians:
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? (1 Corinthians 6:19)
Could it be that looking to Israel’s temple to be rebuilt is looking in the wrong place altogether? Daniel’s prophecy speaks of God leaving Israel desolate because of their rejection of His Son, so in fact, we do not need a temple to be physically built in Israel with literal stones for the Antichrist to sit there! It is tempting to believe that idea with the events going on in Israel (“Take heed that no man deceive you”), but what if the Antichrist can sit on the throne of the temple of the Holy Spirit and declare himself to be God in the bodies of professed Christians, because the true God was kicked out, leaving them desolate?
This has indeed happened. We are speaking of the body temple, which has been polluted with DNA-corrupting vaccines. What we have seen in recent years is the great falling away taking place before our eyes as fully two thirds of the entire population of the globe (and similar figures would apply within Christianity) has irreversibly fallen to Satan—rejecting God as their Creator who rules their body through the original code of life that He placed within every cell. This is the setting in which the two witnesses must stand, with the Holy Spirit still sitting in their body-temples. His is a living temple, and it still stands! Do not permit any vaccine to drive out the Holy Spirit from your part of His temple! It is Antichrist’s intent to do exactly that (in any form possible) on a scale sufficient to overthrow the 144,000 witnesses.
What greater tribulation could there be!? Is it not worse than you ever imagined? We shudder to think of the bloodshed when “only” one third of the population is said to die in the sixth trumpet text:
By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. (Revelation 9:18)
Now, twice that fraction of the world has already been killed by the burning brimstone—symbolic of eternal judgment. We need to finally realize that God wants us to look beyond the flesh and blood and see the very real and tangible spiritual warfare that we are engaged in, and what the battlefield really looks like from His perspective! Billions of people have effectively become zombies—a species of walking dead that was not created by God and thus has no life in their blood, even if some of them retain a form of godliness and call themselves Christians. In this way, he has already been dividing the land of Israel, before Lapid ever gave his public support of a two-state solution in Israel.
I know for me, personally, I never imagined that it would be possible for man to drive the Holy Spirit out of his fellow man by writing man’s own commands into the biological law of his heart! Many could imagine a microchip or even a law regarding religious worship, but they never imagined that the “programming” of the “microchip” would be implemented in DNA, and that the great test would come upon the world through a vaccine that would be required for basic services and functions of everyday life! Thus, many have been deceived and have fallen to the beast. Read those words again in this light:
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day [of Christ] shall not come, except there come a falling away first [eternal death by Covid vaccination], and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the [body] temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)
When one receives the man-made genetic injection (or in principle, even a blood transfusion tainted with the same!), the Holy Spirit can no longer abide in that person. They do not belong to Him anymore. Instead, a devil sits in the temple of his heart where God should be, and perhaps was. His physical body obeys the instructions of the genetic-vaccine-pushing Antichrist who shows that he is god in that soul. Very soon, there is coming a great shaking in the organized churches that will separate the sheep from the goats.
Understand this point well: the Antichrist doesn’t need a temple in Israel to be built! He just needs to be given access to one’s genetics, and he can take the seat of God in the spiritual temple. When he is revealed, he will have a host of people with him—a flood, as it is illustrated in Daniel 9.
…and the people [vaccinators] of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city [apostate Christianity] and the sanctuary [the manifold temple of the Holy Spirit]; and the end thereof shall be with a flood [some 6 billion people!], and unto the end of the war desolations are determined [because there is no recovery]. (Daniel 9:26)
In the reversed timeline, the seven weeks begin on January 23, 2023. We noted this date in Looking Up to All Truth because that is when the comet K2 enters the Indus constellation, which we connected by recent news to the pope, the “chief of Babylon.” Now we see the same date highlighted again! Will “that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition,” at that point in time—to the whole world?
Keep watching what happens in literal Israel, but that is less important and apparently farther in the future than God’s seventy-week timeline. Interestingly, on the Jewish rabbinical calendar, they designate a certain day as the Sabbath of the Red Heifer, which falls on March 11, 2023—precisely at the end of the seventy weeks! They might intend to rebuild the temple, starting with the red heifer sacrifice (perhaps even on that day) but may God find at that time a people who still belong to Him, who are still part of His genetic bloodline—a living third temple worthy of the catching away!
The war against the Lamb is being carried out against Him in the person of His people—tragically with many, many casualties, reducing the eligible population to stand as (unvaccinated) witnesses. Likewise, bitcoin is also under attack, with blood on the charts for months. Both the real people and their symbolic financial counterpart are implicated in this battle. But the good news is that now it is time for the overcoming to be fulfilled:
These [ten horns—nations of the beast] shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. (Revelation 17:14)
