"Seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy. Know therefore and understand, That from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem Until Messiah the Prince, There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined. Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate." 1. This time frame is divided up into 3 parts. 7 weeks, 62 weeks, and 1 week. 2. 7 weeks were necessary to rebuild the city. 3. 62 weeks were necessary between the completion of the city and the death of Messiah. The way the passage reads, immediately after the death of Messiah, the people of the prince to come would destroy the city and the Temple. However, as history has shown, the Temple wasn't destroyed for another 38-40 years. STOP EVERYTHING! WE HAVE AN UNSPECIFIED TIME GAP IN PROPHECY! If we continue, it says that he (the prince to come) will confirm a covenant with many for 1 week. So sometime after the destruction of the Temple is the final week of Daniel's prophecy. It doesn't say how long it will be between the destruction of the Temple and the prince's covenant that he will break. That week is 7 years. In Revelation, it lists three different time frames: 1260 days; 42 months; and a time, times, and half a time. All three references equal 3 1/2 years. So, we can take it to mean 1 of the following three things: 1. Revelation speaks of 10 and a half years (all references added together). 2. Revelation speaks of 3 and a half years (all are for the same time frame). 3. Revelation speaks of 7 years (one reference overlaps one of the others). Now, it is not only consistent, but it is totally accurate and keeping with what Daniel said for John to include a time frame of 7 years. By the way, this time frame is the worst in human history according to Jeremiah and Daniel and, well, all prophets. Apparently Amills and Postmills and Preterists don't need more explanations. Perhaps a simple math lesson will do.
