Part 2 – Revealing the Mystery of the Seven Weeks of Daniel 9:25
Daniel’s ‘Seven Weeks’ of years of Daniel 9:25 began with the recapture of Jerusalem’s Western Wall on June 7th, 1967, and ended 49 biblical years later exactly on September 23rd, 2015, on the Jewish biblical Feast of Yom Kippur!
After 1000’s of years since this prophesy was first given by the angel Gabriel to Daniel, how can we truly know for sure that the Seven Weeks, or 49 biblical years from June 7, 1967 to September 23, 2015, is really Daniel’s Seven Weeks?
In the summer of 2007, on the 19th day of a 21 day mild food fast that both my wife Faith and I were on, the following Scripture regarding the Seven Weeks from Daniel 9:25 came off the page with an understanding in my spirit that these two dates, the Seven Weeks and the Sixty two Weeks mentioned in this Daniel 9:25 passage are two different events, related to the two different comings of our Lord Yeshua. The paper you are about to read has been written based on this initial prophetic experience.
Then the following year in 2008, a very important discovery was made to prove this time frame is truly Daniels’ Seven Weeks!
In 2008, a Messianic pastor in Washington state, U.S.A., Mark Biltz, made a very important discovery while studying the NASA solar and lunar Eclipse records on their website … finding 4 blood red moons occurring in 1967 and 1968 on God’s biblical Feast days of Passover and Succoth in both years, and then 4 blood red moons again occurring in 2014 and 2015, and once again falling on Passover and on Succoth in both years. That is truly a God Sign!
Mark Biltz was looking at the time difference between Passover, 1967 to Succoth, 2015, where as I was focused on the time between June 7th 1967 + 49 biblical years of 360 days which ended up to be on Yom Kippur, 2015. Therefore our conclusions were very different.
This discovery of these four blood red moons helped to make the Mystery of the Seven Weeks of Daniel 9:25 stand out a lot more! It framed the Seven Weeks of Daniel in a picture, when once explained, could now more easily be seen by many.
Also two Solar eclipses occurred on Nisan 1, 2015 and on Tishri 1, 2015. Nisan 1, the beginning of God’s biblical new year; and Tishri 1 is Yom Teruah, the mystery 5th biblical Feast of the 7 Feasts of the LORD, as seen in Leviticus 23:24.
Mark Biltz’s discovery in 2008 of the red blood moons helped to reinforce the revelation given to me by the Holy Spirit in 2007!
The Words given by God to His angel Gabriel in Daniel 9:24-27 carried with them many mysteries regarding both Jerusalem and also the End Times, including Yeshua’s promised return. These mysteries could not be revealed until now, at the beginning of the End Times, and also now just before Daniel’s 70th Week begins, the last Week, the final Week of 7 years before Yeshua returns!
In Daniel 9:25 and 9:26, God clearly gave us two time periods, 49 biblical years and 434 biblical years. Gabriel specifically repeated the 62 weeks (434 biblical years) twice, the second time clearly telling Daniel that these 434 biblical years were the exact time related to Messiah’s first coming and also Messiah’s being cut off, which then later happened around 33 A.D.
When will Daniel’s 70th Week, the last Week begin?
I believe that if the Gog Magog War of Ezekiel 38 – 39 happens suddenly in Israel in the next few weeks during the late spring, that Daniel’s 70th Week will begin this fall in 2022!
Then if that is true, what signs should we begin seeing now?
1) Israel is facing a very serious imminent Gog Magog War with Russia and many Arab enemies, which will bring Israel to their knees, crying out to their God for help just to survive as a nation with all the great odds that will be coming against them. When it looks like certain defeat and death, the God of Israel will suddenly intervene and save Israel. There will also be a great earthquake in Israel during the war. This War will be won solely by the God of Israel raining down on His enemies from heaven! This War will bring Israel back to their God. Ezekiel 38-39:19-22, 25, 28, 29;
2) Israel may also be forced to attack and destroy Damascus to survive; Israel will wax lean after this War (Isaiah 17:4), and suffer great economic hardships. Israel will spend the next seven years just burning weapons after the War (Ezekiel 39:9), possibly using these weapons as a source of fuel for heating and energy, during the coming years of economic disaster. I believe those 7 years are Daniel’s final seven years just before Messiah’s return;
3) After the Arab Moslem defeat, the Israeli Orthodox religious Jews will easily be able to kick Islam off of Mount Zion hill, and then begin building their Temple on the Temple Mount area of Mount Zion hill in Jerusalem; and quickly finish their Temple;
4) Great persecutions will then come from the Israeli ultra Orthodox religious Jews against the Messianic Jewish and Gentile believers in Yeshua living here in Israel;
5) Then the Great Outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit will begin in Zion, in the area called the ben Hinnom Valley by south west Mount Zion hill, bringing in a Great Harvest of multitudes of unsaved Arabs and secular Jews, with many Orthodox Jews also receiving Salvation in Messiah Yeshua. This will catalyst the Great Worldwide Revival from Jerusalem out to the nations! [Ezekiel 39:29; Jeremiah 31:40; Joel 2:28-32; and Amos 9:13]
6) The United States will not be able to help Israel because of great civil and political turmoil, along with God’s judgments on America. Many Muslims will turn against and murder the Jews: the hunters will be released… Jeremiah 16:16. See Ezekiel 39:25
7) Horrendous anti-semitism will rapidly explode against the Jews in the United States and in many of the other nations of the world, forcing multitudes of Jews to flee for their lives from their nations, making Aliya to Israel; [The hunters … Jeremiah 16:16]
8) Great Aliyah will happen in Israel… the Jews will be coming from many different nations, but especially from the United States;
9) Many home groups will be set up by the believers in Israel to help survive and to continue serving Lord Yeshua during these years of the Great Revival and Harvest of souls;
10) Christian financial support will dwindle from abroad to believers living here in Israel;
How can believers in Jerusalem begin preparing for this coming Great Harvest? The more than 70 Jerusalem city pastors and 100’s of ministries must begin to use those with true prophetic callings to help move the Messianic and Church body of believers into the John 17 unity, and alignment, and responsibility, promised to us by our Lord Yeshua. We all need to surrender a lot more to the Holy Spirit, and to work together for the coming great Revival.
Daniel 8:16, 17, 19 And I heard a Man’s voice between the banks of the Ulai, who said, “Gabriel, make this man (Daniel) understand the vision … Understand, son of man, that the vision refers to the time of the End.” And he said, “Look, I am making known to you what shall happen (to your people) in the latter time of the indignation; for at the appointed time the End shall be.”
Daniel was again told by the pre-incarnate Yeshua, that what he was being shown was for the days yet to come, in Daniel 10:13, “But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. 10:14 Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.”
And later more was shared with Daniel by this Man, which was to be sealed up until the time of the End, in Daniel 12: 4-7, 9, 10, “But you, Daniel, close up the words and seal the scroll, even to the time of the End. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Then I Daniel looked, and behold, there stood another two, the one on this side, and the one on that side of the bank of the river. And one said to the Man clothed in linen above the waters of the river, “Until when shall be the end of these wonders?” And I heard the Man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when He held up His right and His left hand to Heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, “That it shall be for a time, times, and half a time. And when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.” [See this Man raise His right hand & left hand to Heaven and Swear, in both Deuteronomy 32:40 and in Revelation 10:5-7.]
And He said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the Words are closed up and sealed till the time of the End. Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand!”
It is important to realize that Yeshua also confirmed Daniel’s prophesy regarding the abomination in the Temple [70th Week] in Matthew 24:15, and Mark 13:14; which was revealed to Daniel over many years. (see Daniel 8:11-14; 9:24-27; 11:3; 12:11)
Joel 2:31, 2 The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome Day of the LORD. And it shall come to pass that whoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as the LORD has said, among the remnant whom the LORD calls. (Read Acts 2:20)
This Authors Conclusions
God made sure that the Messianic believers would see Daniel’s Seven Weeks of years by surrounding them with the discovery of the 4 blood red moons exactly on Jewish biblical feast days of Passover and Succoth in 1967 and 1968, and repeating 4 blood red moons on Passover and Succoth in both 2014 and in 2015.
By allowing us to have this discovery, what God was doing was showing us the real Seven Weeks of Daniel 9:25, and confirming the Truth about when the shemitah cycles begin, and when the real last year of the shemitah, the year of rest (which then will be a year of shaking for the earth) will also actually begin, confirming to mankind where we are in God’s true End Time biblical calendar.
For after thousands of years, with many possible miscalculations regarding the years and the dates, many would have concluded that it is only at best just a guess about when the real shemitah cycles, and when the real last shemitah year would actually begin.
If all this is correct, then something will very soon begin the Daniel’s 70th Week, the Last Week, the final seven years for this planet before our Messiah, King Yeshua, the King of Glory will actually return from Heaven with His beloved Bride. He will be returning to His beloved city Jerusalem, the city of the Great King.
What major event must proceed Daniel’s 70th Week?
The Gog Magog War of Ezekiel 38 – 39!
This fall Israel enters into their next 7 year Shemittah cycle. If the Gog Magog War happens now in the late spring, I believe then it will also mean that this fall will begin the time of Daniel’s 70th Week, the last seven years for our planet before our Lord Yeshua returns. So now is the time to sound the shofar alarm for the coming of the Gog Magog War, and the Great Aliyah call to go out to all the Jewish believers still living in the diaspora, especially in the United States, and in other countries of the world. For believers to now obey God by making Aliyah to Israel. For Israel is where God is calling you to be, especially just before the years of the world’s Great Harvest of Jewish souls begins from Jerusalem, and also just before the greatest wave of anti-semitic persecutions begin against the Jewish people still living in the diaspora.
Everything is now moving very rapidly regarding God’s End Time prophetic calendar!
Jews in the nations return to Israel now before the evil days of the rising anti-semitism suddenly comes upon you when it will be too late where you are living! Return now with your family, and with your money, and all your possessions, before it’s too late, and you will be forced to flee for your lives, leaving everything behind. For the legal doors for making Aliyah to Israel from your particular country may suddenly close overnight!
The time of the fall feasts of 2015 was the convergence of many major biblical revelations regarding the End Times …
Mark Blitz’s discovery in 2008 of the 4 blood red moons on Passover and Succoth, in1967 and in 1968, and then again 4 times in 2014 and in 2015. Prior the blood red moons fell on the biblical Jewish feast days of Passover and Succoth in 1949 and in 1950, during the time right after Israel had become a nation. And prior to that, way back in 1493 and in 1494, during the time when the Americas were first discovered. This sign of the LORD of these blood red moons on the Jewish biblical feast days of Passover and Succoth will not happen again during this century!
Also two solar eclipses also occurred in 2015 on God’s biblical days of Nisan 1 in the Spring (the first day of the Hebrew New Years) and also on Tishri 1, Yom Teruah.
The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the Great & Awesome Day of the LORD!
By God showing us and also repeating to us in two different kinds of ways these major signs during the fall feasts of 2015, God was telling us where we are in End Times! That the Seven Weeks of Daniel had ended just as the series of Blood Red Moons had also ended, was truly a God sign!
God is confirming to us by showing us these End Time signs in the heavens occurring before the Day of the LORD that the 70th Week of Daniel is also now about to happen. And it will proceed the world’s greatest End Time Revival and great Harvest of souls.
Jonathan Cahn and also Mark Biltz have both shared major revelations regarding the Shemitah cycles and the End Times!

Daniel 9:24 “Seventy Weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city (Jerusalem), to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, to bring in Everlasting Righteousness, and to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Holy of Holies. 25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the Word to restore and to build Jerusalem until (to) the Anointed One (Messiah), the Commander, shall be Seven Weeks and Sixty two Weeks (of 7 years): the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. 26 And after Sixty two Weeks the Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself. And the people of the (evil) prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the Sanctuary; and the end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined. 27 And he shall confirm a covenant with many for one Week. And in the middle of the Week he shall cause the sacrifice and the offering to cease, and on the wing of abominations, he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined shall be poured out on the desolate.”
