The church and Daniel’s 70 week prophecy

Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories.  (1 Peter 1:10,11)

The Old Testament prophets tell us of the suffering Christ experienced when he was crucified; they tell us of the glory associeated with his rule over the earth during the Millennium.  But what do they say about the time between these two events, the time in which we are living now?  The answer is: not much.  In fact they say nothing about the most important aspect of this era, the formation of the church.  The apostle Paul was given the task of revealing this truth to us.

When you read this, you can perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ, which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit. This mystery is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.  (Ephesians 3:4-6)

The Old Testament teaches that Gentiles will be saved; it never tells of the formation of a new body composed of both Jews and Gentiles.  Paul not only teaches us about this body but he also tells how it will be removed from the earth through the event known as the rapture.

Pray for Daniel

The prophet Daniel was one of the captives taken to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar when he conquered Judah.  He was fully committed to obeying God even though he was a captive and as a result God placed him in a position where he could have a godly influence on the king.  As a result, Nebuchadnezzar became a worshipper of God.

Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, for all his works are right and his ways are just; and those who walk in pride he is able to humble.
Daniel 4:37

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:11)
