Did GOD tell us in advance in his Holy Bible the exact day that his SON JESUS would enter into Jerusalem, even 600 years before it happened?



Daniel 9:24-25-26

24 "A period of seventy sets of seven has been decreed for your people and your holy city to finish their rebellion, to put an end to their sin, to atone for their guilt, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to confirm the prophetic vision, and to anoint the Most Holy Place.

25 Now listen and understand! Seven sets of seven plus sixty-two sets of seven  will pass from the time the command is given to rebuild Jerusalem until a ruler—the Anointed One—comes. 26 "After this period of sixty-two sets of seven, the Anointed One will be killed, appearing to have accomplished nothing, and a ruler will arise whose armies will destroy the city and the Temple.

I have been preaching to people all over the world for years now, including the Jews. I hear from men and women who constantly say that the Messiah hadn’t come yet into our world. I quickly point out to them the prophecy in Daniel chapter 9 which cannot be refuted. It cannot be argued, and this prophecy that GOD gave us in Daniel 9 giving us the EXACT DATE cannot be modified or thrown to the side in disbelief. GOD used math here to warn the entire world especially his Jewish nation the exact day that the Anointed one = Messiah would enter into Jerusalem.



This just so happens to be the exact day, that JESUS rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, even a donkey’s colt. {Therefore, there are exactly 69 Weeks of Years (173,880 days) between the decree of King Artaxerxes in 445 B.C to rebuild Jerusalem to Palm Sunday, April 6, 32 A.D.!! God foretold to the day when Messiah would present Himself to Israel as their Messiah-King. We see this event recorded in Matthew 21:1-11.

With such a clear cut precise prophecy as Daniel 9 - How on earth could the Jews have missed GOD coming in the flesh?

 In Luke 19:44 - we see Jesus weeping over the people of Israel, cursing them because they had not recognized Him as Messiah. Jesus said, "[these horrible judgments will come upon you] because you did not know or recognize the time of your visitation." (Luke 19:44)

JESUS held the Jew’s accountable for this terrible sin. 600 years earlier, JESUS had revealed to his people the Jew’s the exact date that GOD would visit them. But because of sinning, apostate bible teaching, their hardened hearts among a few other factors, the people didn’t take this prophecy seriously or literally.


Note this prophecy contains three parts: 

1. 7 Weeks of Years (49 Hebrew Years)

2. 62 Weeks of Years (434 Hebrew Years)

3. 1 Week of Years (7 Hebrew Years)

At the precise point in history when the 7 + 62 Weeks of Years occurred, Israel could expect Messiah to announce Himself as Messiah. What great news! This means that Israel could not miss Messiah. All they had to do was to be aware of this prophecy, to count the weeks of years and be cognizant of current events in Israel as they unfolded.






This prophecy stipulated that Messiah would be presented to Israel and would be killed after 69 weeks of years had elapsed from its starting point. When we multiply 69 times 7, we understand that the time involved here equals 483 Jewish years. Since the Jewish calendar contains 360 days, we can easily see that this prophecy is precisely 173,880 days long.

 II. The Starting Point of the Prophecy (Daniel 9:25a)

In this verse , God said the prophecy would begin "from the going forth (the issuing) of the commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem..." At the time God gave Daniel this prophecy, Israel was a slave nation under Babylon; however, God had foretold that this slavery would last only 70 years. This 70-year period was rapidly coming to a close; indeed, non-Jewish history records that the Medo-Persian emperor Artaxerxes issued just such a decree on March 14, 445 B.C. Therefore, precisely 173,880 days from this day should bring us to some significant event in Jesus' life which presented Him to the nation Israel as their Messiah.

III. The Mathematics Of The Prophecy

A. The First Seven Weeks (49 Jewish Years)

If you study the book of Nehemiah, you will find the account of the Jewish pilgrimage to rebuild Jerusalem following King Artaxerxes' decree. The prophet Nehemiah assumed charge of this rebuilding effort, which was carried out in such extreme hardship and danger that the builders carried swords with them as they were building the walls. Thus was fulfilled precisely the prophecy in verse 25b,"...it shall be built again with city square and moat, but in troublous times."

This effort began in 445 B.C. and culminated in 396 B.C., exactly 49 years, just as foretold.

B. The Second Period (62 Weeks of Years, 434 years)

Daniel 9:26 foretells that the "anointed One" would come after this period and would then be killed. This wording is understood by most conservative scholars to refer to Jesus Christ, not at His birth, but at His presentation as the Messiah-Prince. (2) "There were only two events in the life of Christ when He was officially set apart. One was His baptism and the other was His triumphal entry into Jerusalem." (3) This latter event has become known as Palm Sunday. When did Palm Sunday occur? "The Messiah (Jesus) came to Jerusalem on Passover in the year A.D. 32, which was April 6." (4)

C. The two periods combined (7 + 62 = 69 Weeks of Years, or 483 Jewish years, or 173,880 days).

* When we count from March 14, 445 B.C. to April 6, 32 A.D., we have 477 years, 24 days. However, we must deduct one year because only one year lapses between 1 B.C. and 1 A.D. This gives us 476 years, 24 days or 173,764 days.

* Then, we must add 119 days to account for the 119 leap years during these 476 years (476 divided by 4). Now, we have 173,883 days.

* However, there is a slight inaccuracy in the Julian calendar when compared to the solar year. The Royal Observatory in London calculates that a Julian year is 1/128th of a day longer than the Jewish solar year. When we multiply 476 years times 1/128, we get three days. Subtracting three from our figure above, we arrive at the 173,880 days. (5)

Therefore, there are exactly 69 Weeks of Years (173,880 days) between the decree of King Artaxerxes in 445 B.C to rebuild Jerusalem to Palm Sunday, April 6, 32 A.D.!! God foretold to the day when Messiah would present Himself to Israel as their Messiah-King. We see this event recorded in Matthew 21:1-11.

Even though a lot of us reading this article already know and love JESUS tremendously, it is always great to study scriptures that prove once again that JESUS is GOD’S SON the Messiah.




Now we come to the next point: God had wonderfully foretold to Daniel the exact day on which Messiah was to announce Himself as King. The learned Magi knew of Daniel's prophecy and of his reputation of reliability in such matters. They knew the story recorded in Daniel, where their own Zoroastrian brethren had not been able to interpret the King's dream, but Daniel's God had revealed it to this Jewish prophet, and Daniel had used this information to save the lives of the Magi! To the Zoroastrians, Daniel was a phenomenal individual, one whom they had greatly respected in every generation of Magi since Daniel.

Therefore, just prior to Jesus' birth, they had to have been buzzing with anticipation, because they knew they were living within the life-time (approximately 30-40 years) of the completion of the specified time period. They knew that, if one was to announce Himself as Messiah in just 30 years, he would have to be born now. Thus were the Magi looking for a sign. The Holy Spirit was also not leaving anything to chance, and was prompting their minds to anticipation and to a proper understanding of what they were about to observe in the Heavens.

Even the gifts which the Magi brought to Jesus suggests that they were being prompted by Daniel's prophecy, and fully understood the prophetic and religious implications of Jesus' birth, ministry, and death. Consider the gifts they presented to Jesus:

1.. Gold--Daniel said in 9:25 that the coming Messiah was to be a "prince". This term denotes royalty, a king. Gold was the perfect gift for a king.

2. Frankincense--God stipulated in Exodus 30:34-36 that frankincense was to be prepared for the "purpose of sacrificial fumigation". (6) Jesus Christ was killed on Calvary as the Perfect Sacrifice which would be acceptable to God to take away the sins of all who would accept it. Did Daniel's prophecy reveal this sacrificial aspect? Yes!! In 9:26, God revealed that Messiah would be "cut off" (sacrificially killed).

Interestingly, frankincense was also used by the priests during the regular service in the Temple. Therefore, this frankincense gift could also point to Jesus Christ as the ultimate High Priestly, an office which He assumed after His ascension into Heaven.

3. Myrrh--The Jews used Myrrh for embalming bodies for burial preparation. (7) Again, the verse quoted above would have prepared the Magi to bring this gift.

 It is extremely interesting that two of the three gifts which the Magi presented to baby Jesus related to His death and burial. The Daniel prophecy contained all the information which the Magi needed to know to bring these gifts. They studied this prophecy in its entirety and knew exactly the kind of gifts to bring!



The second question is why Israel's spiritual leaders missed this prophecy, when the pagan Magi did not. The answer is really quite simple. Several hundred years before Christ was born, Jewish leaders began to believe and propagate two grievously erroneous teachings. First, they taught that the sacred Scriptures could not be taken literally because they were not totally inspired by God, and thus contained errors. Secondly, they taught that prophecies were not to be taken literally, but spiritually. Prophetic books such as Daniel were not even taught anymore because they contained so much prophecy. After several generations had come and gone, each teaching and believing this nonsense, spiritual leaders of Jesus' day were completely unaware of this prophecy. Thus, they were unaware of the "time of their visitation".

The significance of this study to today is both simple and obvious. The same wrong teaching concerning inspiration of the Bible and its inerrancy is occurring throughout this nation. Most people today are unaware that all 300+ prophecies concerning Jesus' Second Coming are coming to pass or have already occurred. These people are unaware that this has never occurred before. Therefore, many people will miss Jesus' Second Visitation, to their eternal peril.

Every single prophecy in the Holy Bible has either been fulfilled, or is going to be fulfilled for nobody is more powerful then our FATHER in HEAVEN. It is our FATHER who brings to pass his prophecies since the beginning of the foundation of the world....................

For those of you who already know and love JESUS, this prophecy fulfilled should boost your faith even more!!! And for those of you who don’t feel JESUS is the Messiah the SAVIOR of the world, GOD gave such prophecies as Daniel 9 to help you to believe more. To show you with math that the entire bible can be trusted. To show you that we must do as the bible says and repent our sins to JESUS and have him wash us clean by his blood on the cross.

Now is the time more then ever for us to invite JESUS into our lives. With the economic systems of the world falling apart before our very eyes, and with wars and rumors of war all over the entire earth, we must search out these amazing prophecies in the bible to help us to believe in GOD even more then we do now. These prophecies are here to help us to believe in his Holy Bible more, and to follow the instructions that GOD has give to us in his Bible to have a good life here on earth, and to gain life in HEAVEN through his SON JESUS FOR ALL OF ETERNITY. Now is the time for us to get right with our CREATOR JESUS- Now is the time for us to repent our sins and invite JESUS into our lives........... Once we get to the HALF WAY point of the 7 year tribulation, there wont be any more chances for people to turn to JESUS. Instead, let us do it now with all of our heart and soul and tears!
