The 70 weeks and the 1 week

Postby keithareilly on Mon Jan 18, 2016 5:10 pm

Daniel 9:24
24 “Seventy weeks[c] are decreed about your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin, and to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and to anoint a most holy place.

Daniel 9:27
And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week,[g] and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.”

Suppose all the things to be accomplished during the 70 weeks were already accomplished. Also suppose that the 1 week of Daniel 9:27 was not part of the 70 weeks.

How would that change what you believe?

I am not looking to debate whether the 1 week is part of the 70 weeks, I am just curious if and how this would change what people believe.

Edited to add:
I will set up another thread for those who wish to debate or simply provide your reasons for believing one way or another.

Keith, that is along the line that I was suggesting the other day in another thread. As regards as to whether or not it would change my belief system, the answer is "NO!" as my belief system already embraces this view.

If the end of the 70 weeks had come to pass then we would be living in a sinless world at this moment in time waiting for this extra week to be fulfilled.Yes,..no?

Not quite what I am asking, I am asking how what you believe would be different than above.
Assume the correct understanding is 70 weeks of Daniel 9:24 are consecutive and the one week in Daniel 9:27 is not part of the 70, How would that change what you believe and expect?

Thanks for responding,

Keith

As do mine.
What I am curious about is what are the structures of faith built upon the 1 being part of the 70?
And
What are the structures of faith built upon the 70 not being completed?

7+62+1=70. Hard to get around simple math for me. And I see the 70 weeks as entirely Messianic.

God Bless

David
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.
