I just read an interesting article that stated Suleiman the Magnificent (Ruler of the Ottoman Empire from 1520-1566) made an order to rebuild Jerusalem, including the walls. Notice how similar the name is to Soloman. If we take 69 weeks (483 years) and go backwards from 2015 we get 1532 which is during Suleiman's reign. Lets take a look at Daniel 9:25
25Know 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.
No where in that statement did it say 70 weeks. Its 69 weeks from a given point to the return of Christ. Could this be the time the Messiah returns for His bride and then is cut off (meaning the Holy Spirit is now gone)?
26And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
He destroys the city and the sanctuary, this is the time those who listen to God know to get out of the city.
27And 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.
Does the final week start after the rapture, when the covenant is made? And then in the midst of the week the temple is taken over? And then the wrath begins?
Just kicking around ideas!
