THE 'SEVEN YEAR' TRIBULATION IS A FALSE TEACHING.........
Do not fall for the false teaching of a coming 'seven year' tribulation like so many misinformed Christians have fallen for. Yes, there is a future world-wide tribulation judgment coming from God, but it is NOT seven years' in length. The false teaching of a ‘seven year' tribulation is derived from the false teaching of a 'seven year' peace treaty made by the anti-Christ. One false teaching has spawned the second false teaching which comes from the misunderstanding of the prophecy of a coming Messiah in Daniel 9:25-27. Those who misunderstand this prophecy of a coming Messiah mistakenly separate and disassociate Daniel 9:27 thus violating the continuity of Daniel 9:25-27 that speaks of the Messiah, NOT the anti-Christ as so many mistakenly believe.
After mistakenly violating the continuity by separating and disassociating Daniel 9:27 from Daniel 9:25 & 26 they then misidentify the pronoun "he" in Daniel 9;27 to be the anti-Christ instead of referring back to the Messiah spoken of in Daniel 9:25 & 26 WHOM IT REALLY IS. Then they also misidentify "the covenant with many for one week" to be a future 'seven year' peace treaty made by the anti-Christ when IT IS REALLY the third promise of the everlasting Abrahanic Covenant, which is God's promised blessing of a coming Messiah according to Genesis 12:3, "in thee ALL FAMILIES of the earth be blessed", BOTH Jewish and Gentile families will be blessed by the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ.
Daniel 9:27 is the prophecy of the Abrahamic "covenant with many" that is being "confirmed for one week" by the Messiah during the last week of Daniel's 70 weeks by the Messionic Ministry of Jesus Christ, but "He" was "cut-off" in the midst of that 70th week of Daniel "but not for Himself". The "he" in Daniel 9:27 is the Messiah, Jesis Christ, spoken of in Daniel 9:25 & 26... NOT THE ANTI-CHRIST !
SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT :
Because the Messiah, Jesus Christ, was "cut-off' by His crucifixion "in the midst" of the 70th week of Daniel while "He" was in the act of "confirming" the Abrahamic "Covenant with many" descendants of Abraham that leaves only the 3 1/2 year last-half of Daniel's 70th week yet to be fulfilled by the coming Great Tribulation judgment upon the whole world. The coming Great Tribulation of the whole world is 3 1/2 years in length... NOT SEVEN YEARS ! There is no Scripture in the entire Bible that speaks of a 'seven year' tribulation. That is a false teaching contrived by Man.
ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURAL PROOF OF A 3 1/2 YEAR GREAT TRIBULATION :
"He shall speak great words against the most High, and they shall be given into his hand UNTIL a time , times, and half a time." ( 3 1/2 years )
"There was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and power was given unto him TO CONTINUE 42 MONTHS." ( 3 1/2 years )
'That IT SHALL BE for a time, times, and half a time ( 3 1/2 years ) ......that all these things SHALL BE FINISHED."
Note: The ‘He’ in Daniel 7:25 and the ‘him’ in Revelation 13:5 are both referring to the antichrist.
According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus !
