Daniel 9-12 on prayer, prophecy of end times is sealed 70 weeks is happening globally on earth. In first year of Darius son of Ahasuerus, of the lineage of the Medes, who was made king over the realm of Chaldeans 2 in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the Lord through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. 3 I set my face to LORD GOD to make request, prayer, supplications, fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. 4 And I prayed to the LORD my God, and made confession, and said, O LORD, great, awesome God, who keeps HIS covenant, mercy with all who love HIM, who keep HIS commandments, 5 we sinned committed iniquity, wickedness, rebelled departing from Your precepts, judgments. 6 Did not heed your servants or prophets, who spoke in Your name to our kings or princes, fathers and all people of the land. 7 O LORD, righteousness belongs to You, but to us shame of face, as it is this day to the men of Judah, to inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel, those near and those far off in all the countries to You have driven them, because of unfaithfulness they have committed against You. 8 “O LORD, to us belongs shame of face, to our kings, our princes, our fathers, because we sinned against You. 9 To the LORD God belongs mercy and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against Him. 10 We did not obey voice of the LORD our God, to walk in HIS laws, He set before us by HIS servants the prophets. 11 Israel transgressed Your law, and departed so not to obey Your voice; the curse and the oath written in the Law of Moses the servant of God have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against Him. 12 He confirmed His words He spoke against us and against judges who judged us bringing great disaster; in whole heaven not done before to Jerusalem. 13 “As written in Law of Moses, all this disaster came upon us; yet not made prayer before the LORD our God, we might turn from iniquities and understand Your truth.14
LORD kept disaster in mind and brought on us; the LORD our God is righteous in all works He does, though not obeyed His voice. 15 And now, O LORD our God, who brought Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, made Yourself a name, as it is this day sinned and done wickedly! 16 “O LORD, according to all Your righteousness, I pray, let Your anger and Your fury be turned away from Your city Jerusalem, Your holy mountain; because for our sins, and for iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people a reproach to all those around us. 17 Now therefore, our God, hear prayer of Your servant, and his supplications, and for the Lord’s sake cause Your face to shine on Your sanctuary, which is desolate. 18 O my God, incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see our desolations, and the city which is called by Your name; for we do not present our supplications before You because of righteous deeds, but because of Your great mercies. 19 O LORD, hear! O LORD, forgive! O LORD, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your city and Your people are called by Your name.”
The Seventy-Weeks Prophecy
20 While speaking, praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God for the holy mountain of my God, 21 yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering. 22 And he informed and talked with me, and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand. 23 At the beginning of all supplications command went out, and come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved, considered matter to understand vision. 24 Seventy weeks determined for your people and Holy City, To finish transgression, make end of sins, reconciliation for iniquity, To bring in everlasting righteousness, To seal up vision and prophecy, to anoint the Most Holy. 25 “Know therefore and understand, That from the going forth of the command To restore and build Jerusalem till Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall,In troublesome times. 26 “And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; And the people of prince who is to come. Shall destroy the city and sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, And till end of war desolations are determined. 27Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. On wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until consummation is determined, is poured out on the desolate.”
Vision of the Glorious Man
10 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia message was revealed to Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar. The message was true, but appointed time was long; and he understood the message, and had understanding of the vision. 2 In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. 3 I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all till 3 whole weeks fulfilled. 4 Now on the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, that is, the Tigris, 5 I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a certain man clothed in linen, whose waist was girded with gold of Uphaz! 6 His body was like beryl, his face like appearance of lightning, his eyes like torches of fire, his arms and feet like burnished bronze in color, and the sound of his words like the voice of a multitude. 7 And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men who were with me did not see the vision; but a great terror fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves.8 Therefore I was left alone when I saw this great vision, and no strength remained in me; for my vigor was turned to frailty in me, and I retained no strength.9 I heard the sound of his words; and I heard the sound of his words I was in a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground.
Prophecies: Persia and Greece
10 Suddenly, a hand touched me, which made me tremble on my knees and on the palms of my hands. 11 And he said to me, “O Daniel, man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you.” While speaking this word to me, stood trembling. 12 Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13 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. 14 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.” 15 When he spoke the words to me, I turned my face toward the ground and was speechless. 16 And suddenly, onehaving the likeness of the sons of men touched my lips; then I opened my mouth and spoke, saying to him who stood before me, “My lord, because of the vision my sorrows have overwhelmed me, and I have retained no strength. 17 For how can this servant of my lord talk with you, my lord? As for me, no strength remains in me now, nor is any breath left in me.” 18 Then again, the one having the likeness of a man touched me and strengthened me. 19 And he said, “O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!” So when he spoke to me I was strengthened, and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.” 20 Then he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? And now I must return to fight with the prince of Persia; and when I have gone forth, indeed the prince of Greece will come. 21 I tell you as noted in Scripture of Truth to uphold me against them is Michael your prince. 11 In the first year of Darius the Mede, I, stood up to confirm and strengthen him 2 AndI tell you the truth: Behold, three more kings will arise in Persia, and the fourth shall be far richer than them all; by his strength, through riches, he shall stir up all against the realm of Greece. 3 Then a mighty king shall arise, who shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. 4 And when he has arisen, his kingdom shall be broken up and divided toward the four winds of heaven, but not among his posterity nor according to his dominion with which he ruled; for his kingdom shall be uprooted, even for others besides these.
War Kings of North and South
5 The king of the South become strong, as well as one of his princes; and gain power over him and have dominion. His dominion shall be a great dominion. 6 At the end of some years join forces, for the daughter of the king of the South shall go to the king of the North to make an agreement; but shall not retain the power of her authority, and neither he nor his authority shall stand; but shall be given up, with those who brought her, and with him who begot her, and with him who strengthened her in those times. 7 But from a branch of her roots one shall arise in his place, who shall come with an army, enter the fortress of the king of the North, and deal with them and prevail. 8 And he shall also carry their gods captive to Egypt, with their princes and their precious articles of silver and gold; and he shall continue more years than the king of the North. 9 “Also the king of the North shall come to the kingdom of the king of the South, but shall return to his own land. 10 However his sons shall stir up strife, and assemble a multitude of great forces; and one shall certainly come and overwhelm and pass through; then he shall return to his fortress and stir up strife. 11 “The king of the South shall be moved with rage, and go out and fight with him, with king of the North, who shall muster a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into the hand of his enemy. 12 When taken away the multitude, his heart will be lifted up and he will cast down tens of thousands, but he will not prevail. 13 King of the North will return so muster multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come at the end of some years with a great army and equipment. 14 “Now in those times many shall rise up against the king of South. Also, violent men of your people shall exalt themselves in fulfillment of the vision, but they shall fall. 15 The king of the North shall come build siege mound, and take a fortified city; forces of the South not withstand him his choice troops have no strength to resist. 16 But he who comes against him shall do according to his own will, and no one shall stand against him. He shall stand in the Glorious Land with destruction in his power.17 “He shall set his face to enter with the strength of his whole kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus shall he do he shall give him daughter of women to destroy it; but shall not stand with him, or be for him. 18 After this he shall turn his face to the coastlands, and shall take many. But a ruler shall bring the reproach against them to an end; and with the reproach removed, he shall turn back on him. 19 Then he shall turn his face toward the fortress of his own land; but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found. 20 “There shall arise in his place one who imposes taxes on the glorious kingdom; but within few days shall be destroyed not in anger or battle.21 And in his place shall arise a vile person, to whom they will not give honour of the royalty; but he shall come in peaceably, and seize kingdom by intrigue. 22 With the force of a flood they shall be swept away from before him and broken, and the prince of the covenant. 23 And after the league is made with him he shall act deceitfully, shall come up and become strong with a small number of people. 24 He shall enter peaceably, into richest places of the province; and do what his fathers have not done, nor forefathers: he shall disperse among them plunder, spoil, and riches; and he shall devise his plans against the strongholds, but only for a time. 25 “He shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the South with a great army. And the king of the South shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand, for they shall devise plans against him. 26 Yes, those who eat of portion of his delicacies shall destroy him; his army shall be swept away, and many shall fall down slain. 27 Both these kings’ heartsshall be bent on evil, and they shall speak lies at the same table; but it shall not prosper, for the end will still be at the appointed time. 28 While returning to his land with great riches, his heart shall bemoved against the holy covenant; so he shall do damage and return to his own land.
Northern King’s Blasphemies
29 “At the appointed time he shall return and go toward the south; but it shall not be like the former or the latter. 30 For ships from Cyprus shall come against him; therefore he shall be grieved, and return in rage against holy covenant, and do damage. “So he shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant.31 And forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation. 32 Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. 33 And those of the people who understand shall instruct many; yet for many days they shall fall by sword and flame, by captivity and plundering. 34 Now when they fall, they shall be aided with a little help; but many shall join with them by intrigue. 35 And some of those of understanding fall to refine them, purify and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time. 36 “The king shall do according to his own will, exalt magnify himself above gods, speak blasphemies against God of gods and prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what was determined is done. 37 He regards not God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; but exalt himself above them all.38 In their place he shall honour a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honour with gold, silver, precious stones and pleasant things. 39 Shall act against strong fortresses and a foreign god he shall acknowledge to advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.
The Northern King’s Conquests
40 “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. 41 He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon. 42 He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape.43 He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels.44 But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. 45 And shall plant tents of his palace between the seas and glorious holy mountain; he come to his end so none helps him. In 1 Thessalonian 4:13-18 the dead in Christ arise together with living in Rapture.
Prophecy of the End Time
12 “That time Michael will stand up the great prince who stands watchover sons of your people; There shall be a time of trouble as never was since nations, till that time. Your people will be delivered Everyone found written in the book of life. 2 Those asleep in dust of earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, others shame contempt. 3 The wise shine like brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever. 4 “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” 5 Daniel, looked; and there stood two others on riverbank and one on other riverbank. 6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, who was above waters of the river, “How long shall fulfillment of these wonders be?” 7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand 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 been completely shattered these things shall be finished. 8 Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, “My lord, what shall be end of these things?” 9 And he said, “Go your way Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 10 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. 11 From time daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. 13 “But go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of days.” These events Jesus talked about in book of Revelations unfold daily on earth in living history until Jesus Comes in cloud to RESCUE in Rapture and MILLENNIAL Reign later with Saints in Israel.
