GOD'S WORD IS TRUTH
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR BOOK REVIEWS.
Every day this blog will be updated with a new quotation and response or a new question and answer. Please make a comment or ask a question. What we are after is truth. The truth that is contained in the Scriptures.

(Part 5). A prominent dispensational premillennialist writes, Based on a literal interpretation of Daniel’s prophecy, it is held that there has been no fulfillment of Daniel 9:27 in history, and that therefore it prophecies a future period, familiarly called “the tribulation.” John F. Walvoord. The Rapture Question, Grand Rapids, MI; Zondervan Publishing House, 1957), p. 51. (PLEASE LOOK OUT FOR PART 6 ).
Is the seventieth week of Daniel’s prophecy future as taught by this author or has it been fulfilled?
A number of scholars and Bible teachers agree with the author that 69 of the 70 weeks have been fulfilled and the 70 th. Week is future – the tribulation period.
The Scripture indicate that the Anointed One was cut off after seven sevens and sixty-two sevens (Dan. 9: 25-26), that is, after four hundred and eighty three years. If 69 weeks of the prophecy were fulfilled before the cutting off of the Anointed One (the crucifixion of Jesus) and the last week, the seventieth week (seven years) is still future, then the crucifixion of Jesus did not take place in the timeframe of the prophecy and was therefore not relevant to its fulfillment.
But the Scripture clearly states that the crucifixion of Jesus was essential to the fulfillment of the prophecy. We read, Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy (Dan. 9: 24).
There is nothing else in this world that could put an end to sin, atone for wickedness and bring in everlasting righteousness except the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We conclude from Scripture that the crucifixion of Jesus (the cutting off of the anointed one) did not take place between the past 69 weeks (483 years) and the future one week (7 years) as claimed by the author and dispensational premillennialists but that it took place during the last week of the prophecy, the seventieth week.
The seventieth week is not future but past. The prophecy of the "seventy sevens" (Dan. 9:24) was given to a people under law. Christ is the end of the law (Rom. 10:4). Nothing in the prophecy remains to be fulfilled.
The preceding discussion make it abundantly clear that the seventieth week of Daniel’s prophecy has been fulfilled. Thus making the teaching of the author unscriptural.
Many authors, denominations and Bible Colleges teach a millennial kingdom following the judgment at the Second Coming in which people will have children and carry out the routines of life in which we are engaged at the present time.
If all believers, dead and living, put on immortality at the appearing of Jesus, at the last day, at the last trumpet, at the end of the age (John 6: 39 – 40; 1 Cor. 15: 50-54; Luke 20: 34 – 36; Phil. 3: 20 – 21; 1 Thess. 4: 16 - 17) and all unbelievers are punished with everlasting destruction (2 Thess. 1: 6-10), from where will people come in natural (physical) bodies to go into a millennium and have children?
Some teach that after the Day of Judgment the earth will be desolate for a thousand years. But the Scripture teaches that this present heaven and earth will be burned up on the Day of Judgment and God will create a new heaven and a new earth (2 Peter 3: 7-13).
The doctrine of a millennium after the judgment at the Second Coming is not supported by Scripture.
