THE BEGINNING OF DANIEL'S 70th WEEK
Thank you for listening to the Narrow Way Christian Ministry's online Church service, today's sermon is a part of the Understanding the Gospel series and is titled: The beginning of Daniel's 70th Week. The purpose of this sermon is to explain the beginning of Daniel's 70th Week, as it is described in Bible prophecy. it will also document recent world events which I believe began Daniel's 70th week, and detail why I believe these events are the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. I would like to begin today's sermon by reading a scripture from the book of (Mark 13:32-37) But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
WHAT IS DANIEL'S 70TH WEEK?
Daniel's 70th week is a small part of a larger prophecy known as Daniel's 70 weeks, this prophecy is found in the book of Daniel, and it details a timeline of the first and second coming of Jesus Christ. This prophetic timeline consists of 70x7 year periods, in Daniel's 70 weeks prophecy 1 week is a 7 year time period, and 69 of these 7 year periods were fulfilled, from the proclamation of King Cyrus to rebuild Jerusalem, until the time of the Roman invasion of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. The 69th week of Daniel's prophecy was fulfilled by the first Jewish Roman war, which began with the great Jewish revolt in 63 A.D, and lasted until the Roman desolation of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. The 69th week of Daniel's prophecy is found in (Daniel 9:26)... 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. This scripture foretold the 7 year Jewish Roman war, and is a foreshadowing of the final 7 year period known as Daniel's 70th week.
Daniel's 70th week is the final 7 year period before the establishment of God's kingdom on earth, the Bible divides this final 7 year period into 2 three and a half year periods, with the first three and a half year period consisting of 1260 days, and the final three and a half period consisting of 1290 days. This 2550 days, makes up Daniel's 70th week, and is the time from the opening of the first seal, until the opening of the seventh seal which is described in the book of Revelation chapters six to eleven, and the time described in Revelation chapters twelve to chapter twenty two. According to Bible prophecy this final 7 year time period (Daniel's 70th week), is triggered by specific events which are vividly detailed in the Bible, these events mark the beginning of Daniel's 70th week, and the final 7 year period that is the end of this world. The next sections of this sermon will detail the beginning of Daniel's 70th week, as it is described in Bible prophecy, and show you events that I believe to be the fulfillment of this prophecy.

THE BEGINNING OF DANIEL'S 70TH WEEK
(Daniel 9:27) And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
According to Bible prophecy, the beginning of Daniel's 70th week is the beginning of the end of this world, the scripture explains that this time begins when a man confirms the covenant with many, but who is this man? and what is the covenant that he confirms? and who are the many which he confirms it with? The answers to these questions are all found in the scriptures which I will now share with you.
The answer to who the man is which confirms the Covenant is found in (Daniel 9:26)... 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.
The people of the prince mentioned in (Daniel 9:26) are the Romans that invaded the city of Jerusalem, and destroyed the sanctuary in 70 A.D. The man that confirms the covenant in (Daniel 9:27), is the prince that shall come according to (Daniel 9:26). The man that confirms the Covenant is the prince that shall come, this man is the end time king of Rome, who is described in (Daniel 7:25) And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
The prince that shall come is the end time king of Rome, he is the first Beast described in (Revelation 13:3-8) And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
The man that confirms the covenants is the end time king of Rome, he is the man of sin who is also described in the book of (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4) 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.
The man that confirms the Covenant in (Daniel 9:27) is the man of sin described in (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4), he is the first Beast described in (Revelation 13:5-7), and he is the final king of Rome described in (Daniel 7:25). This man is the dreaded Antichrist 666, the man whom Satan will enter into, after he receives a deadly wound to head as is described in (Revelation 13:3-8). The book of Daniel explains that this man can be identified when he confirms the covenant with many, but what is the covenant? and who are the many which he confirms it with? the next section of this sermon will answer these questions.

THE COVENANT WHICH HE CONFIRMS
The covenant which is confirmed as described in (Daniel 9:27) is the Old Covenant law, and the reinstatement of animal sacrifices in Jerusalem. This is confirmed because (Daniel 9:27) explains that in the middle of the week, the king of Rome betrays the many, and causes the sacrifice and the oblation to cease. In short the covenant which is confirmed is the Old Covenant law, which is once again confirmed in the book of (Galatians 3:17) And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
The confirmation of the Old Covenant is the whole burnt offering of God, this is the true Holocaust which represents the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The book of Daniel describes the end time king of Rome, as confirming the Old Covenant with many in Jerusalem, but who are these many which the Covenant is confirmed with? There does not need to be any speculation when determining the identity of the many described in (Daniel 9:27), in fact there is only one group of people that this Covenant can be confirmed with. The Old Covenant can only be confirmed with the Sanhedrin council of 70 in Jerusalem that accused Jesus Christ of Blasphemy, and condemned the saviour of humanity to death. According to the prophecy of Daniel's 70th week, the end of this world begins when the man of sin confirms the Old Covenant with the Sanhedrin, and animal sacrifices begin in Jerusalem. The prophecy explains that the confirmation of the Covenant begins the end of this world, and the beginning of Daniel's 70th week.

THE SANHEDRIN IN JERUSALEM
The confirmation of the Old Covenant began on the 25th September 2019, when the 70 elders of the Sanhedrin council hosted a major council in Jerusalem, that was called the Emerging Organization of 70 Nations. This conference lasted three days, and was attended by 70 world leaders representing the United Nations. These 70 United Nations diplomats met to hear lectures from representatives of the Sanhedrin, and participated in discussions that focused on the global implementation of a one world religion, governed by the Sanhedrin council of Jerusalem. The 70 Nations Conference, also confirmed plans for the United Nations to establish an international religious court in Jerusalem that is to be controlled by the Sanhedrin council. The Emerging Organization of 70 Nations conference, concluded with an animal sacrifice taking place on the Mount of Olives. This whole burnt offering (Holocaust) on the Mount of Olives, was rebellion against the Messiah Jesus Christ. But who authorized this Antichrist activity, and who had the authority to confirmed the Covenant with the 70 elders of Jerusalem?

THE MAN OF SIN REVEALED
According to Bible prophecy Solomon's temple will be rebuilt in Jerusalem, this is the temple of the Antichrist, and the place where the man of sin will declare himself to be God, according to (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4). The scriptures warns us that the man who will eventually built this temple, will confirm the Covenant with the Religious authority of Jerusalem, and recognize the Synagogue of Satan as the seed of Abraham, and rightful owners of Jerusalem. This recognition took place through a number of historical events, that I will now detail. The first of these events took place on the 14th May 2018, when former United States President Donald Trump declared Jerusalem to be the capital city of Israel, and declared the Synagogue of Satan to be God's chosen people. As a result of this declaration a historical coin was minted known as the Trump Temple Coin. The coin featured an image of Donald Trump along side the image of King Cyrus, the idea conveyed by the coin, is that Donald Trump is initiating a prophetic process that will eventually facilitate, the rebuilding of a Third Temple. Donald Trump's declaration and actions, were supposed to mirror those of King Cyrus, when he recognized the Jewish people, and decreed them to rebuild the Temple. Through this action the Synagogue of Satan have declared Donald Trump to be the messiah in place of Jesus Christ, and the Antichrist who will rebuild the temple of Jerusalem. On the 13th of August 2020, Donald Trump also mediated the Abraham Accords Peace Agreement, and on the 28th of January 2020, Donald Trump announced the Middle East Peace Plan, otherwise known as the Deal Of The Century. I believe that these actions collectively where the confirmation of the Covenant described as in (Daniel 9:27) and that Daniel's 70th Week began at some time during this political recognition process.
THE BEGINNING OF DANIEL'S 70TH WEEK IN REVELATION
(Daniel 11:21-23) And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries. And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant. And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.
The story that is told in the book of Revelation, is also told in the book of Daniel, and the prophecy of Daniel's 70th week. The beginning of Daniel's 70th week is marked in the book of Revelation by the opening of the first seal, as described in (Revelation 6:1-2) And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. The opening of the first seal in (Revelation 6:1-2) coincides with the beginning of Daniel's 70th week in (Daniel 9:27), which describes the man of sin being revealed, through his confirmation of the Old Covenant. The man riding the white horse is given a crown, and he goes forth to conquer, and to conquer again at a later stage.
The story of Revelation explains that shortly after the revealing of this king, the second seal is opened, and a world war event is triggered, I believe that this event was fulfilled by the Russian special operation that is now taking place in the Ukraine, and the consecration of Russia and the Ukraine, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Friday, 25th March 2022. I strongly believe that the first seal was opened when Donald Trump confirmed the Old Covenant with the Sanhedrin, and that we are living in the time between the opening of the second seal, and the third seal of Revelation, and that the coming global food crisis will indicate the opening of the third seal. I would like to conclude this sermon with a final scripture from the book of (Revelation 1:1-3) The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
