In Daniel 9:24 the Lord said that Seventy Weeks were determined to seal up vision and prophecy. This term “seal vision and prophecy” is tremendously significant. It means that seventy weeks were assigned by God for the fulfillment of all prophecy! In this second edition of this book, prolific author Don K. Preston establishes several key facts:
- 1.) Daniel 9 is concerned with Israel and the fulfillment of her promises– not the end of time, or the end of the Christian age.
- 2.) Daniel 9 does in fact predict the time of the fulfillment of all prophecy.
- 3.) Daniel 9 posits the end of the seventy weeks at the time of the destruction of the city and temple in AD 70.
- 4.) In a special study, of profound importance, Preston examines the popular dispensation doctrine of a gap between the 69th and the 70th week, completely falsifying that doctrine. There is no 2000 year gap in Daniel 9!
This is a tremendously important book that needs to be read by every student of Bible prophecy. Extremely well documented, logically argued and persuasive.
