UNLOCKING THE MYSTERIES OF REVELATION SERIES:

DANIEL’S SEVENTIETH WEEK AND THE GREAT TRIBULATION:

INTRODUCTION:

The Book of Daniel is the Old Testament companion to Revelation. Any in-depth study of the New Testament Apocalypse must consider this book of the Bible.

A COMPARISON OF THE PARALLELS BETWEEN DANIEL AND REVELATION:

“I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, And the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, Its wheels a burning fire.” (Dan. 7:9).

“His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire.” (Rev. 1:14).

• Both Daniel and John had a vision of the wisdom and authority of the Lord.

“I was watching in the night visions, And behold, One like the Son of Man, Coming with the clouds of heaven!” (Dan. 7:13).

“Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him.” (Rev. 1:7).

• Both Daniel and John had a vision of the second coming of Jesus.

“Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, That all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, Which shall not pass away, And His kingdom the one Which shall not be destroyed.” (Dan. 7:14).

“and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” (Rev. 1:6).

• Both Daniel and John had a vision of God’s kingdom, dominion and glory.

“At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, Some to shame and everlasting contempt.” (Daniel 12:1-2).

“And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books… And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Rev. 20:12).

• Both Daniel and John had a vision of the books opened on the day of judgment.

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end.” (Daniel 12:4).

“And he said to me, "Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand.” (Rev. 22:10).

Note – the difference between Daniel and Revelation:

• The angel told Daniel to “shut up the words, and seal the book” until a later time.

• The angel told John to NOT seal the words of the prophecy, for the time was at hand.

DANIEL’S SEVENTIETH WEEK AND THE GREAT TRIBULATION:

When exactly will the seven year tribulation take place… or has it already??

First of all - where did the idea of the end-times seven year tribulation come from?

“As there is so much secret rapture theology revolving around the seven year period, one would deduce that the Bible must speak frequently of this time period. There is in fact not one single scriptural reference which ties the seven years to the end of the world or the coming of Christ.” (quote from www.secret-rapture.com).

Sorry. What I understand from scripture is totally and completely DIFFERENT than your synopsis of it. I hope your audience knows how to USE their Bibles.
