The Last 7 years, where do I find it in the bible?
This is for those of you that are having a hard time finding the timing of events in the bible. I will again try to spell out the last 7 years. These events and much more are listed in my book “The Judgment of Babylon” in the chapter “the time table and the incredible sevens page” 61, 62 and 63.
If you will turn to Daniel 9:27 you will find this scripture;
Daniel 9:27 King James Version (KJV)
27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: (one week in bible prophecy is equal to 7 years,) and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
You most likely you will not recognize this man. He, the anti-christ will Cause, but that doesn’t mean you will know who he is.
He being the anti-christ will confirm the covenant and he will be a witness to the signing—–he will confirm that Israel has a right to the land they are now in procession of. This event starts the last seven years. He, in the middle of the week will cause the sacrificing of animals to cease. You will see the proof of this as you keep reading.
In the midst of the week——or 3 ½ years or 1277.5 days “he” will cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease. Again in the middle of the 7 years.
Note below; It doesn’t say that you will know him! But, at this point of time he will also cause to place the Abomination of Desolation;
Daniel 11:31 King James Version (KJV)
31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
This one week is equal to 7 years in bible prophecy.
The army of the 10 horned beast will stand watch on the temple mount, “This is the Abomination in the middle of the 7 years”.
The above is telling you of 3 events that will happen in the first 3 ½ years of the last 7 years, the confirmation of the covenant, the sacrifices will be stopped and the Army of the 10 horned beast will be placed at the temple mount.
This next clue for the last 7 years is Daniel 12:6-7
Daniel 12:6-7 King James Version (KJV)
6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swear by him that liveth forever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; (equaling 3 ½ years) and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. (equaling the 7th trumpet)and telling you this happens or starts in the middle of the 7 years.
DANIEL 12: 4-7 Rainbow Study Bible Living Word Edition
“But Daniel keep this prophecy a secret; seal it up so that it will not be understood until the end times, when travel and education shall be vastly increased!” Then I, Daniel looked and saw two men on each bank of a river. And one of them asked the man in linen robes who was standing now above the river, How long will it be until all these terrors end? He replied with both hands lifted to heaven, taking oath by him who lives forever and ever, that they shall not end until three and a half years after the power of the holy people is crushed.
Both of these are correct, The RSB is very clear that the last 3 ½ years starts with the crushing of Americas power and at this point there will be Christians still left and they will be subdued “for the lack of a better word” by the end of the last 3 ½ years.
The long view on this would be 1st trumpet WW1, 2nd trumpet WW2, third trumpet Chernobyl, 4th trumpet shortening of time, 5th trumpet Iraq gulf war, 6th trumpet 911 and the 7th trumpet the rapture of the church at the end of the last 7 years.
15 And the seventh angel sounded; (this is the seventh trumpet) and there were great voices in heaven, saying, the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
At this point the Christians are gone! This event happens at the 1277 ½ day of the second 3 ½ year period or at the 7th year. If you will go to the Incredible 7 pages in the book you can place all the other scriptures that will tell you this is so!!
Our next chapter is Revelation 14:6-13;
This is a schedule of events as indicated by the verses 14:11 & 12
6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. This Fall of Babylon/America is seen in Daniel 12:6-7, 2 Thessalonians 2:7-8, and Revelation 9:13-17.
9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they (Where are they? “They are still here on earth” in this sequence of events) that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: (henceforth means from this point forward in scripture again pointing out a sequence of events) Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.
These verses in Revelation 14 6-20 are a sequence of events indicated above. Here are they! Where are they? Their still on earth in this sequence of events and why are the dead blessed?
“Because of the tribulation their going to go through”.
Once you know the date of the confirmation of the covenant you can place the balance of the time line and know the date of the arrival of Jesus Christ with in a 48 hour period. (The reason you can’t know the day and hour as so many preachers have preached is that when Jesus came He was emphatic that you should watch the eastern sky for his coming now as there are different time zones. He has given us the timing of events once a particular event happens).
Does this help?
