  • 4. THE BIBLE’S LONGEST AND MOST AMAZING PROPHECY Lesson 9 4
  • 5. A party of Arctic explorers were hopelessly lost in the freezing snow. Their supplies were running low. They had a few meager rations left. They lost all radio contact with their home base. Now they were frantic. In the midst of their despair someone spotted a puff of smoke on the horizon. That one puff of smoke buoyed their spirits. Help was on the way. Someone knew they were lost and was coming to take them home. 5
  • 6. Our world is frantically searching for some message of hope. The book of Revelation reveals a “puff of smoke” on the distant horizon. Jesus is on the way. He is coming to take us home. Our lesson today unfolds one of the Bible’s most amazing prophecies. In our last lesson we discovered God’s special message in Revelation, chapter 14— a message to prepare a people for the coming of Jesus. Jesus’ final, last-day message announces, “The hour of [God’s] judgment has come” (Revelation 14:7, NKJV). 6
  • 7. In this lesson we will study where this judgment takes place and when it began. If we are living at the time of the end in God’s judgment hour, it makes all the difference in how we live our lives. Although Revelation reveals that the hour of God’s judgment has come, it does not tell us when. To discover when the judgment began we must turn to the prophetic book of Daniel. The prophecies of Daniel unlock the mysteries of Revelation. These two Bible books are designed by God to be studied together. 7
  • 8. 1. According to the prophet Daniel, where does the judgment take place? Daniel 7:9, 10 Lesson 9 8
  • 9. I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. (Dan 7:9-10) Lesson 9 9
  • 10. The angel directed Daniel's attention to the throne room of the universe. There the prophet saw the setting up of the supreme court of the universe in heaven's sanctuary. 10
  • 11. 2. When does this heavenly judgment take place? Daniel 8:14 Lesson 9 11
  • 12. And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. (Dan 8:14) Lesson 9 12
  • 13. 3. What does the prophet Daniel say would happen to the sanctuary at the end of the 2300 prophetic days? Daniel 8:14 Lesson 9 13
  • 14. And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. (Dan 8:14) Lesson 9 14
  • 15. 4. What did the cleansing or restoring of the sanctuary mean to each Israelite? Was it a form of judgment? Leviticus 16:29, 30; 23:27-29 Lesson 9 15
  • 16. And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you: For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the LORD. (Lev 16:29-30) Lesson 9 16
  • 17. Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God. For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. (Lev 23:27-29) Lesson 9 17
  • 18. Each day during the earthly sanctuary service the Israelites confessed their sins. They came to the sanctuary with their sacrificial animals. Each sacrificial animal represented Jesus. Day by day, sin was transferred from the sinner to the substitute and through the blood of the sacrificial victim carried into the sanctuary by the Jewish priest. Each priest represented Jesus, our priest, who represents us in heaven's sanctuary. 18
  • 19. Once a year, on the Day of Atonement, the sanctuary was cleansed of all the guilt transferred in by the confessed sins of the Israelites. It was a day of judgment! At the end of the day the sins of the repentant Israelites were either confessed, forgiven and renounced, or unconfessed, unforgiven and cherished. All Israelites who refused to confess their sins were banished from the camp. They were judged. The cleansing of the heavenly sanctuary takes place at the end of time. It is God's final judgment on sin. 19
  • 20. 5. When does the vision of the 2300 days especially apply to? Daniel 8:16, 17, 19 Lesson 9 20
  • 21. And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision. So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision. (Dan 8:16-17) Lesson 9 21
  • 22. And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be. (Dan 8:19) Lesson 9 22
  • 23. 6. Who was Daniel's guide to explain the vision? Daniel 8:16 Lesson 9 23
  • 24. And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision. (Dan 8:16) Lesson 9 24
  • 25. When the angel attempted to explain the vision, Daniel fainted. (Daniel 8:27) 25
  • 26. 7. Does Gabriel return to continue the explanation of the vision which was interrupted by Daniel's fainting? Daniel 9:21-23 Lesson 9 26
  • 27. Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding. Lesson 9 27
  • 28. At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision. (Dan 9:21-23) Lesson 9 28
  • 29. 8. What portion of the prophecy applies directly to Daniel's people, the Jews? Daniel 9:25 Lesson 9 29
  • 30. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. (Dan 9:25) Lesson 9 30
  • 31. Gabriel begins his explanation by stating that 70 weeks (490 days) are determined (cut off from the 2,300 days) especially for the Jews (Daniel 9:22-24). 31
  • 32. 9. In Bible prophecy what does one prophetic day equal? Numbers 14:34; Ezekiel 4:6 Lesson 9 32
  • 33. After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise. (Num 14:34) Lesson 9 33
  • 34. And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year. (Eze 4:6) Lesson 9 34
  • 35. The entire 2,300 days leads us to the time of the end and the opening of the judgment 35
  • 36. 10. When does this entire prophetic period begin? Daniel 9:25 Lesson 9 36
  • 37. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. (Dan 9:25) Lesson 9 37
  • 38. The entire prophetic period begins with the command to restore and build Jerusalem. Jerusalem was attacked in 605 B.C. by the Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar. In 587/586 B.C. it was largely destroyed. The Medes and Persians overthrew the Babylonians in 539 B.C. In 457 B.C. the Persian king, Artaxerxes, passed a decree allowing the Jews to return to their homeland to rebuild Jerusalem. You can read about this decree in Ezra 7, verses 12 and 13. 38
  • 39. 11. How long would it be from the decree to restore Jerusalem to the anointing of Jesus as the Messiah? Daniel 9:25 Lesson 9 39
  • 40. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. (Dan 9:25) Lesson 9 40
  • 41. The prophecies of Daniel predict that from the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem in 457 B.C. until the coming of the Messiah would be 69 prophetic weeks, or 483 prophetic days (7 x 69 = 483). Since one prophetic day equals one literal year, 483 years from the going forth of the command to rebuild Jerusalem the Messiah would appear. The chart below will clarify this prophecy. 41
  • 42. 12. What happened when Jesus was baptized? Luke 3:21, 22; Acts 10:38 Lesson 9 42
  • 43. Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. (Luke 3:21-22) Lesson 9 43
  • 44. How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. (Act 10:38) Lesson 9 44
  • 45. 13. When would Jesus bring all sacrificial offerings to an end with His death on the cross? Daniel 9:27 Lesson 9 45
  • 46. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. (Dan 9:27) Lesson 9 46
  • 47. The first 69 weeks of the 70-week prophecy ran out in A.D. 27 at Christ's baptism. One week, or seven years, remained. In the middle of this last prophetic week all animal sacrifices would cease. The Messiah would be cut off or crucified. According to the prophecy, Jesus would be crucified three and one-half years from His baptism in A.D. 27. This leads us to the spring of A.D. 31. Jesus was crucified in the spring exactly on the Passover as the prophecy predicted. 47
  • 48. 14. What event occurred in the Jewish Temple when Christ was crucified? Matthew 27:51 Lesson 9 48
  • 49. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; (Mat 27:51) Lesson 9 49
  • 50. The tearing of the veil in the Jewish Temple signified the end of the sacrificial system. On Passover of A.D. 31, Jesus Christ, our Passover, was crucified for us. The sacrificial system lost its significance. Christ, our substitute, was sacrificed in our behalf. 50
  • 51. Historically the whole sacrificial system came to an end with the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus in A.D. 70. In A.D. 34, as the prophecy predicted, the Jews finally sealed their doom as a nation. The Jewish high priest speaking on behalf of the Sanhedrin, the high Jewish Council, officially rejected Jesus. Stephen, the first Christian martyr, was stoned, and the gospel was preached to the Gentiles. 51
  • 52. The 490-year period is a smaller section of the 2,300 days. The 490 years applies especially to the Jews and the coming of the Messiah. The longer prophecy of the 2,300 days leads us to the end of time, the cleansing of the sanctuary and earth's final judgment. Adding 1,810 years to our last date, A.D. 34, brings us to 1844. Just as surely as Christ was baptized in A.D. 27 and crucified in A.D. 31, the judgment began in A.D. 1844. 52
  • 53. 15. Adding 1810 years to our last date, A.D. 34, brings us to 1844. Just as surely as Christ was baptized in A.D. 27 and crucified in A.D. 31, the judgment began in A.D. 1844. Does it make any difference in the way we live knowing we are living in the judgment hour? Romans 13:11-14 Lesson 9 53
  • 54. And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Lesson 9 54
  • 55. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof. (Rom 13:11-14) Lesson 9 55
  • 56. 16. What assurance does God give us in the judgment? Hebrews 7:27 Lesson 9 56
  • 57. Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. (Heb 7:27) Lesson 9 57
  • 58. If any of us had to stand alone, we would have no hope. Jesus will stand in our behalf in the judgment. What assurance! We can rejoice in the hope of the Christ who is our best friend representing us before the throne of God. 58
