the Foreshadow of "Crossing Over".
prophet Daniel was given a vision during the Babylonian
captivity concering the future of Israel, such as -
vision of a Ram and a Goat (Chapter 8); HIs vision of the
70 "Sevens" (490 years); and prophecies concerning
Persia, Greece, Egypt, Syria and the antichrist (Chapter
Prophecy of Seventy Weeks
teachings using the text of the book of Daniel are associated
with revelations about Daniel's vision concerning the end
time period. Daniel's text is most important when understanding
the prophetic nature of Old Testament scriptures. An integral
part of Daniel's vision is the seventy week time period
concerning the Jewish. The seventy weeks should be seen
as God's time allocated for Israel's acceptance of Jesus
as their long awaited Messiah coming to save Israel
from their spiritual adversary.
9: 24-27 (KJV) -
24 - "Seventy weeks
are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to
and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation
for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting
righteousness, and to seal
up the vision and prophesy and to anoint
the most holy."
24 (Con't) - "Seventy weeks"
- This established time period for the nation
of Israel must be completed in order to fulfill Daniel's
prophecy. Each week represents seven years. This is determined
by studying verse 25.
24 (Con't) - "Finish
transgression" - The meaning of this
phrase is to repent and make an end of sin. At the time
of Daniel's prophecy, Israel was in Babylonian exile. The
northern kingdom was exiled in 2 Kings 17: 7-23 and
the southern kingdom was exiled in 2 Kings 24: 1-21.
In 586 BC Jerusalem fell into Babylonian captivity. In 538
BC the first group of Israelites returned to Jerusalem under
the leadership of Zerubbabel. In 432 BC the third and final
group of Israelites returned under the leadership of Nehemiah.
From 432 BC to 5 BC was the time interval between the Old
Testament and the New Testament. It was during this time
that the Law and decrees, as recorded by Moses, were refined
by the Jews in an effort to put an end to sin. But, in their
zeal to become more holy by expanding the law to include
minute elements of daily life, they failed to bring in everlasting
righteousness or put an end to sin. Jesus' statements to
the Pharisees and Sadducees in Matthew 23:24 points
to their failed effort to achieve a greater form of righteousness
by refining the Law.. Matthew 23:24 (KJV) - Ye blind
guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a
put an end to sin is to accept everlasting righteousness
from God through the blood sacrifice of God's Son instead
of relying on the blood sacrifice of animals for the atonement
of sin, as provided under the Mosaic Law (righteousness
by observing the Law). Since Israel has not yet accepted
the blood sacrifice of God (the Messiah), then an end to
transgression has not yet occurred. When Israel accepts
the Messiah, then their sins will be remitted and transgression
will be completed. Therefore, since Israel has not yet accepted
the Messiah's blood sacrifice, then Daniel's seventy weeks
of time is not yet been completely fulfilled for the Jews.
Daniel's prophecy has been fulfilled through the sixty-ninth
week, but the seventieth week remains unfulfilled (more
information on this subject discussed later in this study).
24 (Con't) - "Reconciliation
- Reconciliation for sin is available only through
the sacrificial blood of Christ. When Israel accepts Jesus
as the Sacrificial Lamb of God, their sins will be remitted
they will be reconciled to God.
24 (Con't) - Everlasting
- Is the Jew's righteousness everlasting or temporal?
6:25 - And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe
to do all these commandments before the Lord our God, as
he hath commanded us.
word "righteousness", as used in this scripture,
is taken from the Hebrew word "Tsdaqah"
which means "moderately right". At the
time of Moses' giving of the law to Israel, their obedience
to the law would be moderate righteousness until the time
everlasting righteousness would come through the sacrificial
blood of Christ Jesus. In other words, the Jews literally
saw their obedience to the law as permanent righteousness.
If permanent then there was no need to be re-born or saved
under the covering of a New Blood Covenant (God's blood).
So, their hearts was harden to the idea they needed to be
saved in order to receive everlasting righteousness. Moses'
instructions that "and it shall be our righteousness,
if we observe to do all these commandments"
became the central focus of their religion. Their
righteousness was based on their obedience to the law. Righteousness
was a matter of "do this" and "don't do this".
Unwittingly, the Jews relied on their works of obedience
and became self-righteous. Therefore they were blind to
the free gift of righteousness by the mercy and grace of
God under the New Blood Covenant (forgiveness of sin and
reconciliation to God). The apostle Paul uses the words
"blindness in part" (Romans 11:25)
to describe the moderate righteousness of Israel.
is taken from the Greek word "porosis"
(Strong's Concordance - Greek) #4457 - stupidity
in the KJV to mean blindness or hardness.
hardness of Israel's heart is seen in Mark 3:2-6 (KJV)
- And they (Pharisees) watched him, whether he would heal
him on the Sabbath day, that they might accuse him. (3)
And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand
forth. (4) And he saith unto them, "Is it lawful to
do good on the Sabbath days, or to do evil? To save life,
or to kill?". But they held their peace. (5) And when
he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved
for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto
the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out:
and his hand was restored whole as the other. (6) And the
Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with
the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
hardness of their hearts is due to the Jews' reliance on
observing the Law for their right standing with God. The
Pharisees wanted to accuse Jesus of breaking the law
of the Sabbath because he was healing a certain man on the
Sabbath day. The hardness of their hearts prevented them
from seeing the grace of God's working through Jesus.
the Jew believes he is righteous before God by observing
the Law, he is blinded (hardness of heart) and he can not
see the need for salvation because atonement for sin is
under the Law through the sacrificial blood of animals.
He does not realize everlasting righteousness is
not earned by deeds of observing the Law, but rather is
a free gift of God through their Messiah's death on the
this temporal righteousness by obedience to the law was
imparted to Israel under Moses and was to suffice until
the coming of Messiah. Everlasting righteousness is available
only under the blood covering of God's Sacrificial Lamb,
Jesus. So, Daniel's prophecy to "bring in everlasting
righteousness" definitely points to the salvation
of Israel. Thus, the seventy weeks is an allotted time God
has established for Israel's salvation.
Everlasting righteousness is available only by faith in
Jesus Christ, Messiah. Jesus states in Matthew 5:20 (KJV)
- ....That except your righteousness shall exceed the
righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall
in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. Jesus'
statement is an indictment against legalism and works of
righteousness based on performance and good deeds.
24 (Con't) - "Seal
up the vision and prophecy"
the Seventy Weeks are fulfilled vision and prophecy will

a vision of.

faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall
fail, whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether
there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in
part and we prophesy in part. But when that which
is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall
be done away.
sealing of the scroll makes this declaration - When Jesus
Christ (that which is perfect) comes then
prophecies and visions will be put away.
To date, Christ has come and Israel has rejected him as
the Messiah. However, prophesies, visions and other gifts
of the Holy Spirit are in effect until the second coming
of Christ, which is the end of Daniel's seventy week period.
So, when Israel does accept Jesus as the Messiah
in the 70th week then prophecies will cease, as
well as other gifts of the Holy Spirit because Christ (that
which is perfect) has come. Gifts of the Spirit are given
to the church to continue the works of Christ in the world
until He returns. At which time the gifts will no
longer be needed.
24 (Con't) - "Anoint the Most Holy"-
law required that all the articles used in the Tabernacle
and the Levitical priesthood were to be anointed
with the sacred anointing oil - Exodus 30: 22-30.
This ritual of anointing included the Most Holy Place and
the Ark of the Covenant, upon which was the mercy seat of
at the moment of Jesus' death on the cross the veil between
the Most Holy Place and the Holy Place was torn in two.
After His resurrection the Levitical priesthood was abolished
and Jesus was made the High Priest of the New Blood Covenant.
After Jesus' ascension, the anointing oil symbolically represents
the anointing of God through the Holy Spirit, which was
imparted to the royal priesthood of believers (disciples
of Christ) on Pentecost Sabbath.

i.e. (by implication) to consecrate to an office

Israel's "anointing of the Most Holy" is
to accept Messiah (the Anointed One) as the only High Priest.
Thus, the temporary Levitical priesthood was set aside for
the permanent royal priesthood of the Messiah -
7:22-27 (NIV) - Because of this oath, Jesus has become
the guarantee of a better covenant. (23) Now there have
been many of those priests, since death prevented them from
continuing in office; (24) but because Jesus lives forever,
he has a permanent priesthood. (25) Therefore he
is able to save completely those who come to God through
him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
(26) Such a high priest meets our need-- one who
is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted
above the heavens. (27) Unlike the other high priests, he
does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for
his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He
sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself.

and by faith Israel accepts Jesus as the true Messiah and
Sacrificial Lamb. Jesus is anointed by the faith of the

The end time seven year tribulation period is concerned
with Israel's salvation.
apostle John's vision of the throne room at the beginning
of the seven year tribulation (Daniel's seventieth week)
- Revelation 5:5-9 (NIV) - Then one of the elders said
to me, "Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe
of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He
is able to open the scroll and its seven seals."
(6) Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain,
standing in the center of the throne, encircled by the
four living creatures and the elders. He had seven horns
and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent
out into all the earth. (7) He came and took the scroll
from the right hand of him who sat on the throne. (8) And
when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the
twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had
a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense,
which are the prayers of the saints. (9) And they sang a
new song: "You are worthy to take the scroll and
to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your
blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and
language and people and nation.

This description is an Old Testament Messianic description
and most meaningful to the Jew.

is able to open the seven seal of Daniel's scroll because
His death and blood shed for the forgiveness of sin provides
reconciliation to God.

the center of the throne" - This phrase presents
a picture of Messiah Jesus appearing as a slain Lamb. This
picture will overlay Old Testament sacrificial lambs (as
required by the law for the atonement of sin) to God's Sacrificial
Lamb for the remission of sin. To the Jew this will be a
great revelation of Jesus as their Savior and Messiah.

you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for
God" - Messiah Jesus is worthy because only
through Him can the Jew be saved from their sin.
is a very important revelation of God's end time agenda
- Prior to the opening of the first of seven seals, Christ
is revealing to the apostle John in his vision that the
time for the salvation of the Jews is at hand. Therefore,
Daniel's scroll and the salvation of the Jews is unquestionably
linked together in the scriptures.
this - Understanding Daniel's prophetic revelation of Israel's
salvation is paramount in establishing a proper perspective
for interpreting the Book of Revelation.
9 (Con't) - The
Historical Beginning of the Seventy Weeks Time Period
25 - 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.
the time that King Darius issued the decree to rebuild the
temple and the walls around Jerusalem, until the time that
Jesus was crucified was seven, threescore and two weeks
or a total of sixty-nine weeks. Each day represents
one year. This is a total of 483 years. King Artaxerxes
issued the decree to rebuild Jerusalem in approximately
458 BC - 445 BC.
7:11 (KJV) - Now this is the copy of the letter that the
king Artaxerxes gave unto Ezra the priest, the scribe, even
a scribe of the words of the commandments of the LORD, and
of his statutes to Israel.
Study Bible Notes on Ezra 7:11 - Many
regard the letter of Artaxerxes I as the beginning point
of Daniel's first 69 "sevens" (Daniel 9:24-27).
Others regard the commission of Nehemiah by the same king
as the starting point of this prophecy (Nehemiah.1:1,
11; 2:1-8). By using either a solar calendar with the
former date (458 BC) or a lunar calendar with the latter
date (445 BC), one can arrive remarkably close to the date
of Jesus' public ministry.
Daniel's prophecy is accurate. The wall was rebuilt
in times of trouble in Nehemiah chapter 4 and completed
in Nehemiah 6:15 (NIV) - So the
wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of Elul, in fifty-two
days (445 BC).
9 (Con't) -
Completion of the First 69 Weeks - A Milestone Historically
26 - And 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
"Threescore and two weeks" - Sixty nine
weeks or 483 years.

or asunder); by implication, to destroy or consume;
specifically, to covenant (i.e. make an alliance

He was "cut off" (crucified), but not
for himself - Daniel 9:26. The covenant God
made with Abraham "that all peoples on earth will
be blessed through him" was completed through God's
sacrificial blood, as Jesus spoke these covenant words on
the cross, "It is finished". Even as an
animal was sacrificed and used to form a blood covenant
or alliance between men (cutting flesh and passing between
the pieces), Jesus was sacrificed to form a new blood covenant
between God and man. The covenant sacrifice was complete
when God shed His blood through His Son.
for himself" - His death was for the
redemption of men, not for his own benefit.
of the prince that shall come and destroy the city and the
sanctuary" - This was the destruction
of Jerusalem and the temple in 70 AD by Titus the Roman.
in hindsight we can see Jesus' crucifixion (Israel's Messiah)
as the fulfillment of the sixty-ninth week. The next question
is "When will the seventieth week be fulfilled?"
Why is there a pause in time between the sixty-ninth and
seventieth week? This gap in time is a relevant link
between Daniel's prophecy of seventy weeks and Joshua's
crossing of the Jordan river as a foreshadow of Israel's
9 (Con't) - The
27 - 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.
week" - This is the seventieth week
and brings an end to the time God has established for the
salvation of Israel. But, this week has not yet taken place
because Israel is still following the Law of Moses and Jesus
has not been accepted as the Messiah (anointed as the Most
Holy). So, between verse 26 and 27 there is a gap in time
between the sixty-ninth week and the seventieth week. This
gap of time cannot be understood through a literal interpretation
of Daniel's scriptures, but is made apparent in the foreshadow.
we know God had a purpose for including this space of time
in the fulfillment of Daniel's prophecy. God is not idle
during this time period. It is apparent that during this
time God is working with all the other nations outside Israel.
This is the "times of the Gentiles" (those
outside the nation of Israel). God engrafts the Gentiles
into His agenda for Israel's covenant salvation. Therefore,
it was required that God provided a time slot for this
engrafting to take place in Daniel's prophecy. Remember,
in John 4:22 Jesus told the Samaritan woman "...salvation
is from the Jews". So, it is scriptural prudent
to see the time for the Gentile's salvation included
in the time God has appointed for the salvation of Israel.
11:25-27 (KJV) - For I would not, brethren, that ye should
be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise
in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened
to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come
in. (26) And so all Israel shall be saved:
as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer,
and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: (27) For
this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take
away their sins.
wasn't there an explanation for this space of time revealed
in Daniel's text?
Neither Daniel nor Joshua knew about the "times
of the Gentiles", known as the mystery of God because
it was kept secret by God. The time for the salvation of
the Gentiles was not revealed until after Jesus died for
the sins of mankind, giving birth to Gentile converts (the
church). After the sin debt was paid by Christ Jesus, the
times of the Gentiles was revealed to the apostle Paul.
Daniel and Joshua knew about the Messiah, but they did not
know about the church's birth through His death and resurrection.
had to be "cut off" at the end of the sixty-ninth
week before there could be a time for the Gentiles. 1
Corinthians 2:7-8 (NIV) - No, we speak of God's secret
wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined
for our glory before time began. (8) None of the rulers
of this age understood it, for if they had, they would
not have crucified the Lord of glory.
reason God kept it secret is to allow the blood of Jesus,
shed at the cross, to pay the sin debt for the all of mankind.
God's covenant with Israel could not be completed until
He had offered His only promised Son as the covenant sacrifice.
"It is finished" means God has completed
His covenant and the door was open for all who would believe
and accept atonement for sin under His blood covering. When
man is under God's blood covering, he is in God's tent,
God's house. If he is in God's house, he is "in
Him" - Ephesians 1:4-5 (NIV) - For he chose us in
him before the creation of the world to be holy and
blameless in his sight. In love (5) he predestined us
to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance
with his pleasure and will -.
Bible is written in a way as to disclose the mystery of
God to believers, but not to others. God , as Author of
the bible, uses word mechanics of foreshadows, types, symbols
and parables to disclose secret hidden manna to the church.
The secrets of the kingdom of God are hidden in the scriptures,
but are discerned (disclosed) through the power of the Holy
Spirit in the gift of wisdom and knowledge.
4:11 (KJV) - And he said unto them, "Unto you it is
given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God:
but unto them that are without, all these things are done
patterns, people prefigurements, the Law and historical
events are used in the Old Testament to foreshadow future
things God kept secret. Parables are used in the New Testament
to keep things secret from unbelievers.
Is This Gap of Time Revealed
in Joshua's Historical Account of Israel's Crossing the
the time for the Gentiles "grafting in" was included
in the fulfillment of Daniel's prophecy as a gap of time
between the sixty-ninth and seventieth week, then this time
should also be present in Joshua's account of crossing the
Jordan river if it is a legitimate foreshadow of Israel's
3: 2-4 (KJV) - And it came to pass after three days, that
the officers went through the host; And they commanded the
people, saying, When ye see the ark of the covenant of the
Lord your God, and the priests the Levities bearing it,
then ye shall remove from your place and go after it. Yet
there shall be a space between you and it, about
two thousand cubits by measure:
come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which
ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore.
the above scripture God provides space between the
Israelites and the priests carrying the Ark of the Covenant.
From the time that the waters were parted until the time
that Israel will cross over, God established two thousand
cubits. Again, this space of time is not easily understood
through a literal interpretation of scriptures. But, it
is easily understood considering this historical account
as a foreshadow of Israel's salvation.
(Strong's Concordance - Hebrew) #520 'ammah
(am-maw'); prolonged from #517; properly, a mother
(i.e. unit of measure, or the forearm (below the elbow),
i.e. a cubit; also a door-base (as a bond of the entrance).
in KJV - cubit, measure, post.
'em (ame); a primitive word; a mother (as the bond
of the family); in a wide sense (both literally and
In the English vernacular we have a specific word for a
unit of measurement. The English language has specific words
for specific meanings. Thus, the English language has a
myriad of words. Unlike the English language, the Hebrew
language is composed of word pictures because of its cuneiform
base. Hebrew has far less number of words, but each word
is multifaceted and rich with imagery. Cubit as used in
the above scripture means something special.
it seems odd that the Hebrew root word for a unit of measure
(length of the forearm) also means mother, this image must
be considered when studying Israel's salvation. Mother means
to not only to give birth, but to be the bonding catalyst
in a family unit. The Hebrew language links the birth
and bonding of a family to the cubit when used as a
unit of measurement. This definition of "cubit"
seems to be a real stretch for English speaking Christians
because by default Christians think literally, because the
English language consists of thousands and thousands of
words with literal meanings. But, considering the Hebrew
language consists of word pictures, then we should also
perceive Hebrew word pictures for a deeper insight to scripture
cubit measurement as used in Joshua 3:2-4 is a
word picture that represents God's prophetic time
for giving birth. Another example of measurements representing
time allocations is see in - Revelation
11:1-2 (NIV) - I was given a reed like a measuring
rod and was told, "Go and measure
the temple of God and the altar, and count
the worshipers there. (2) But exclude the outer court;
do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles.
They will trample on the holy city for 42 months."

This is the time for the rule of the anti-christ.
the revelator was told to measure the temple because the
time had come to count all those who worship God. This measuring
and counting will be done just prior to the 42 month rule
of the anti-christ in the last half of the great tribulation.
God is counting worshipers because He is separating those
who repented under the preaching of the 144,000 from those
who did not repent. He will rapture the saved (the great
multitude in Revelation 7:19) before the rule of
the anti-christ begins at mid-tribulation. This event is
a time for birthing believers into the family of God (body

the end of the sixty-ninth week
when Jesus shed His blood on the cross, immediately the
temple's veil of separation was parted in two and the way
was opened for Israel's "crossing over". Israel
could approach God through faith in Christ, the High Priest
of the New Blood Covenant. Israel no longer needs a priest
on earth, as provided in the Mosaic Law, to intercede between
them and God. So the parting of the veil in the temple and
the parting of the waters for Israel's crossing over
to receive their promised inheritance is an important correlation
of events. Joshua's account of the literal "crossing
over" by Israel into the promise land parallels the
spiritual "crossing over" in Daniel's seventy
week prophecy of salvation. Both, Joshua's gap in time and
Daniel's gap in time began when Jesus was crucified and
the veil in the temple was torn in two. Both gaps in time
precedes Israel's "crossing over". Both
gaps should be seen as concurring narrative time periods
provided for the engrafting of Gentiles into the covenant
measure of this space is two thousand cubits. So, from
the time of Messiah's being cut off and the veil in the
temple was parted (even as the Jordan waters were parted)
to the the time of Israel's "crossing over", two
thousand cubits of time will pass and then the Jews will
is a most important correlation of scriptures and precept
to meditate upon - Joshua's foreshadow establishes a specified
seasonal time for Israel's salvation (two thousand cubits).
Daniel's prophecy establishes the unspecified time
for Israel's salvation (the seventieth week).
Christ was crucified in 30 AD. Since this study is concerned
with the season and not a specific date for
Israel's salvation, a specific time will not be attempted.
This two thousand cubits of time is important because
it is the only place in the Bible where a defined time slot
for Israel's salvation is revealed.
we close to the time of Israel's salvation? The
way to salvation (crossing over) was parted (veil in temple
was torn in two) in 30 AD. From 30 AD to the salvation of
Israel (Israel's crossing over) two thousand cubits of time
Of course, I have no insight for converting two thousand
cubits into years, because historically, a cubit has varying
lengths associated with it's use, i.e., the length of the
forearm; the forearm and a handbreadth, etc.
will the time of the Gentiles be complete? I believe Israel's crossing occurs at mid-tribulation,
as discussed later in this study. Therefore, 3.5 years prior
to that time is the beginning of the tribulation period,
which is the season for the pre-tribulation harvest
of the church. The season can get you close to the time
of the harvest / rapture, but not specifically. The church
needs to be ready today. Christ is coming soon, very soon!
note extracted from the home page: Personally, I believe
most all readers of this material will be on the earth for
the harvest / rapture of the corporate church. This series
of books is a most comprehensive scriptural validation for
the seasonal time for the rapture of the church. I recommend
completing this Volume 4 and then study Volume
5 of this series for a fresh illumination of scriptures
concerning end time harvests of Christians and Jews. Scholars
are invited to compare their precepts of God's end time
agenda to what is revealed in this series. You will at least
be challenged to seek for greater wisdom.
9 -Verse 27 (Con't)
- "Midst" - In the middle of the Daniel's seventieth week (Seven Year
Tribulation) the anti-christ will put an end to daily sacrifice
and offerings, and he will set up the abomination (idol)
that causes desolation.
Just prior to this time of desolation; the temple is measured,
the worshipers are counted and the saved are harvested.
27(Con't) - "Overspreading
of abominations he shall make it desolate"
- The false religious worship instituted by the anti-christ
will cover the nation of Israel and cause Israel's desolation
(separation from God), allowing for anti-christ's rule over
the nation of Israel.
27 (Con't) -
until the consummation that is determined is poured out
upon the desolate" - The anti-christ
will reign over Israel until the end that has been decreed
by God is poured out upon him and his followers. This occurs
under the Bowls of Wrath in Revelation chapters 16-18.
Daniel's prophecy establishes the time frame for the salvation
of Israel and Gentiles who believe, it is appropriate to
look in greater detail at Israel's crossing over
