- Be Aware of the Evil One -


 


The Prophecy of Daniel   9:20-27


- vs. 24: 70 “sevens” of years to fulfill God’s Plan for the Ages


- vs. 25: The First Time Period = from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem


              by Artaxerxes (Neh.2:5-8 ­_445 B.C.) to the rebuilt city


              _ 7 X 7-year time frames = 49 years -> 400 B.C. before Christ


-va.25-26: The Second Time Period = from beginning of the


                400-year period of God’s Silence -> “the Anointed One”


                _ 62 X 7-year time frames = 434 years


Note: 445 B.C. + 49 years + 434 years -> A.D. 29 or 30 =


          the time of Jesus’ ministry on earth


- vs. 26: the “Anointed One” is “cut off” (Jesus’ death), Jerusalem


              is destroyed by the Romans in A.D. 70


vs. 27: The Third Time Period = 1 X 7-year time-frame


            The Antichrist (man of lawlessness) will make a covenant


             Israel, but will break it in the middle of the 7 years.  He


             will rebel, and set himself up to be God. (the abomination)


 


The Teachings of Paul   2 Thessalonians 2:3-12


- vs.3-4: The Rebellion _breaking of the covenant in Jerusalem


- vs. 6-7: The Restrainer = God’s sovereign control restraining the


               ‘man of lawlessness’ until God’s timing was fulfilled


- vs.9-12: The Revelation of the Antichrist (cf. 3), the lawless one


                 and his followers (those who refuse to believe God)
