The Book of Daniel

The Endtime Key of Knowledge

Before you start to study the next prophecies given in the Book of Daniel, you will need
to look at some basic things:

1 day = 1 year

1 week of years = 7 years

1 threescore = 420 years (60 x 7)

1 Time = 700 years (100x 7)

In the following chart you will see in the first column the exact words taken from the Bible, separated in rows by its relevance, followed in the second column by its analysis and on the third one you’ll find, marked in red and underlined, the historic date to start the count from followed by the explanation and the year in which every sign took place.

Biblical Text Analysis Year
“Seventy weeks are determined upon
thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the
transgression, 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 prophecy,
and to anoint the most Holy.”
Daniel 9:24

“And after
threescore and two weeks, the
Messiah shall be cut off, and but
not for himself; and the
people of the Prince that shall
come shall destroy the city and
the sanctuary.
Daniel 9:26

What we should take as a beginning to the correct analysis is to understand, that in Daniel’s view, those
weeks represented years, so the 70 weeks of Daniel
represent 490 years -70 times 7 years- that ended with
the death of Jesus the Christ:

The outline of these 490 years is what follows.

This prophecy of the Messiah relates to both comings
(two returns from captivity), and assigns the times
thereof. This prophecy, like all the rest of Daniel’s
consists of two parts, an introductory prophecy and an
explanation thereof.

The dispersed Jews became a people
and city when they first returned to Israel from

There were not one but two returns from
captivity, Zerubbabel’s and Ezra’s; in Zerubbabel’s
they had only the commission to build the Temple, while
in Ezra’s they first became a city by a government of
their own.

Now the years of this Artaxerxes was in
the year that for the Persians counted from 457 to 458 B.C. -as stated in The Enciclopedia
Britanica. Count the time from such date to the
Crucifixion in Golgota, and you will find it to be just 490

457 B.C.

If we extract this number to 490
(490-457=33) So, here we see that the 70 weeks of Daniel were
completed with the death by crucifixion of Jesus around
the year 33 A.D.
“Know also and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to cause to return and to build Jerusalem, unto the Messiah, the Prince, shall be seven weeks.” Daniel 9:25 This means that we should count 49 years
from the order to rebuild Jerusalem, and that
would be the year the King or Prince will be
born on.
The former part of the Prophecy relates to
the first coming of Christ -The Messiah
(annointed in Hebrew)-, being dated to his
coming as a Prophet; this being dated to his
coming to be Prince or King, is related to
His Second Coming. There, the Prophet was
consummated, and the most holy anointed:
here, he that was anointed comes to be
Prince and to reign. Because Daniel’s
Prophecies extents up to the end of the
world; and there is scarce a Prophecy in the
Old Testament concerning Christ, which
does not in one way or another relate to His
Second Coming
51 B.C

Now if we extract 49 from this number

(51-49) equals 2 B.C. this is the exact year when Jesus the Christ was born.

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” Daniel 9:25 Now we shall count from the date Nehemiah
came to Jerusalem in the 20th year of this
same Artaxerxes, while Ezra still continued
there, Neh. 12:3,6, and found the city lying
waste, and the houses and wall unbuilt,
Neh. 2:17; 7:4, and finished the wall the
25th day of the month Elul, Neh. 6:15, in the
8th year of the King, that is, in September in
the year (437 – 436 BC). Count now from
this year threescore and two weeks of
years, that is 434 years, and the reckoning
will end in September.
If we check this date with the last prophecy
we can see that Jesus the Christ was born
in September of the year 2 B.C. It is a
known fact that the Gregoryan calendar that
we use everyday, starts its count from the
year of the alleged birthdate of Jesus
which was decided by the Roman Church
without any factual sustantiation at all. And
even the day of birth was decided to make it
coincide with the Roman festivities at the
last week of every year. Luke’s account of
the birth of Jesus states differently and very
clearly: “And there were in the same country
shepherds abiding in the field, keeping
watch over their flock by night” Luke 2:8. In
other words, surely it was not Winter
season (the shepherds were out at night).
436 B.C.

Lets count from these year threescore and two
weeks 420+14=434 (436-434=2 B.C.)
“Yet shall he confirm the covenant with many for
one week.”
Daniel 9.27
Did Jesus confirm His covenant of love and mercy with Daniel’s people for 7 years? There was a 7 year period between the death of Christ and the time the Gospel was sent out to the Gentiles at the calling of Cornelius. This is the fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy. 5 A.D. The most probable year of Cornelius calling. Shortly after that, Saulus will start his work all through the Ancient world (“confirm the covenant with many”), spreading the teachings of Christ.
“And in half a week he shall cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease” Daniel 9.27
Which sacrifice and oblation will
the Messiah cause to cease? Those of the traditions and
rituals carried on in Jerusalem’s Second Temple. And
the ceasing of all rights, when, by the war of the Romans
upon the Jews the Temple of Jerusalem was destroyed,
which war, after some commotions, began in the 13th
year of Nero, A.D. 67, in the Spring when Vespasian
with an army invaded them; and ended in the second year
of Vespasian, A.D.70 in autumn, September 7, when Titus
took the city, having burnt the Temple 27 days before;
so that it lasted three years and an half! Daniel’s
prophecy mentions a 3 1/2 year period (the half week of
years) after which Temple sacrifices would cease.
67 A.D

If we add to this year 1/2 week(67+31/2=701/2) then we have:

September 7th 70 A.D. Year of the destruction of the Second Temple of Jerusalem and the beginning of the Diaspora, the exile of Israel that ended in May 1948.


“How long shall it be to the end
of these wonders…it shall be for
a time, times and a half; and
when he shall have
accomplished to scatter the
power of the holy people, all
these shall be finished” Daniel

“But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not (let him that readeth understand) then let them that be in Judea flee to the mountains…for in those days shall be affliction such as was not from the beginning of the Creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be…but in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that in heaven shall be shaken. Ant then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory…verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done”. Mark 13:14,19,24,25,26,30, Matthew 24:30, 31,34

Following Daniel’s count in which he used
the figure of “week of years”, we can
assume that “time” is a week of centuries;
therefore, one time equals seven centuries
and so forth. This is the time to be counted
starting from the beginning of the prophecy,
which was in the third year of Cyrus, king of
Persia (556 BC), until humanity reaches the
end of times.

The span of time that Daniel’s prophecy covers, includes the signs of the opening of the Sixth Seal and with it, of the Third Era, as explained by Jesus the Christ. Please read The Prophecies Fulfilled for further information on this subject.

556 BC
If we extract time, times and
and a half to 556
(700+1400+350=2450) then
we have: 2450-556=
1894 that aligns with the
stage of the communications
of the Holy Spirit in Mexico
at the dawning of the Third
Era. See The Advent
“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…”
Daniel 9:25

"And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars…..And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth near."Luke 21:25 & 28)

Now in this verse notice the clue about Jerusalem. Biblecast scholars missed that before and used the wrong date.

But why is it wrong? Because Israel’s capital was not Jerusalem but until two years later.

Amazingly, the resulting date is the same as when the world wide diffusion of The Third Testament started on 1444000.net, aligning with an outstanding sign in the stars

May 14, 1948
The proclamation of a Jewish state in Palestine.


January 23rd 1950 The proclamation of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and the Seat of the Knesset

Now, if we add the 49 years
(1950+49) equals 1999


January 23rd 1999
The beginning of the worldwide propagation of The Third Testament in the 140000.net website. Also the date of a unique event in the Cosmos. Read about it here

The Signs in ths Stars: What happened on January 23rd 1999?

On January 23, 1999, exactly 49 years after the proclamation of Jerusalem as the capital of the restaured Israel, astronomers discovered a big flash brighter than all of the rest of the Universe put  together. Scientists recorded the biggest explosion ever to occur in the heavens in what is known as a Gamma Ray Burst. This burst lasted approximately 40 seconds, yet it turned out to be the brightest object ever detected.

It was a burst of energy equal to “BILLIONS OF YEARS OF LIGHT FROM THOUSANDS OF SUNS.”

Known as GRB 990123, it released 10,000 times more energy than the Sun could emit over a 5 billion year period or 10 to the power of 47 joules – a million billion billion billion times as great as that released at Hiroshima by the atomic bomb. The fact that it also coincides with the 49 year period of Daniel’s prophecy  is beyond the realm of mere chance.

If you wish, you can check the data in these science websites:

Why, then, this important sign hasn’t been noticed by the great religions and the powerful spiritual leaders of mankind?

Because, as the Scripture warns, God’s word is to those who have ears to listen, and signs in the stars are telling us the time of redemption has come. Amazingly, this Gamma Ray Burst occurred in the Constellation of Bootes (which in Greek Mythology is pictured as a man walking rapidly) with a spear in his right hand and a sickle in his left hand. The Greeks called him Bo-o-tes, which is from the Hebrew root BO (to come), meaning ‘The Coming’. The recent Gamma Ray Burst took place right at the Tip of the Spear in the hand of Bootes, the Coming Judge. The heavens metaphorically have declared that Judgement Day is here.

And what should we understand as Judgement Day?

Well, let’s take a look on the words of our Heavenly Father as written in The Third Testament:

“16. This is the great day and it is not composed of twenty-four hours, because the day of judgement you do not know how long it will be prolonged; you do not know when it will terminate, but you are truly in the culmination of these times, and you are living under the judgement of the Lord.” From Teaching 366.

Furthermore, here is the main event that marked us the fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy: In January 23rd of 1999, it begun the global diffusion of the Third Testament, as a spiritual burst of divine light, thru the 144000.net website, beeing the mere existence of the Internet a wonderful sign by itself. Are we sure? Just read the following:

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the the words, and seal the book to the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased“.

“Running to and fro” Email? Air travel between countries in one and the other end of the world?
“Knowledge Shall be Increased” The spectacular advance of techonology? The Internet?
