IN SEVENTY WEEKS-III—Daniel 9:24(1-3, 13-27)
The Pivotal Messiah OR Messiah’s Niche
Sadly, the following is a disclaimer which previewed today’s airing(Dec. 17, 2017) of Dr. Charles Stanley’s ‘In Touch’ TV show:
“The opinions and views expressed do not reflect those Of NBCUniversal or any of its employees.”
Notice that the disclaimer specifically states that ‘In Touch’ with Dr. Charles Stanley absolutely does not reflect the views of NBCUniversal! No ‘may not’ but ‘do not’!
Also notice that the spiritual opinions & views of NBCUniversal were extended to “any of its employees” as well.
‘In Touch’ obviously brings income to NBCUniversal, so they readily take the money from them & air Stanley’s preaching.

:24f—“Seventy weeks are determined For your people & for your holy city, To finish the transgression, To make an end of sins, To make reconciliation for iniquity, To bring in everlasting righteousness, To seal up vision & prophecy, And to anoint the Most Holy.
In Christ Jesus “everlasting righteousness” will be “brought in” or ushered in. Basically, righteousness is our doing that or those things which God has determined is/are ‘right.’
His is a “righteousness” that is not earned, but is a result of our new nature.
In our doing God’s will from the heart, we please Him in all that we are, & thereby in what we do.
Currently, your ability to live out God’s righteousness is locked in a battle with the flesh(Eph. 6:10-13). But one day even that will be won totally, when we experience the completion of our walk on this earth.
Eph. 6:10-13—“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord & in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh & blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, & having done all, to stand.”
