“…It shall be for a time, times and an half…”

“In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.” (Daniel 9: 2)

The prophet Daniel understood that the 70 years prophecy of Jeremiah the prophet, which as we shall see has even reflected on the prophecy which he wrote in the latter part of his book:

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.” (Daniel 12:4-7)

Now, this “time, times, and an half” could be dual in its fulfillment. Let us consider:

israel-born-in-a-day

“...it shall be for a time…” – 19 years

  • 1967 – Six Day War – East of Jerusalem was annexed:

six day war

“…times…” – 38 years

first Palestinian intifada

Ahmadinejad

Pope Benedict XVI

“…and a half…” – 9.5 years

  • 2014 / 2015 – third and final Palestinian intifada? Half of Jerusalem taken? “Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.” (Zech. 14:1-2)

Siege of Jerusalem1

Here is what Mr. Flurry wrote about these verses:

Christ prophesied that He would “gather all nations” to battle Him in Jerusalem. Then He makes what might appear to be a strange statement. One half of Jerusalem is to be taken captive. That crisis triggers a series of events that leads to the return of Jesus Christ! One half of Jerusalem being taken captive is like the first domino to fall, leading to Christ’s return and the battle against all nations in Jerusalem! It all begins and ends in Jerusalem. But what a glorious end! (Zechariah – The Sign of Christ’s Imminent Return, p.79)

America Under Attack

“…and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.”

Now let us further consider:

  • 19 years x 3.5 = 66 years and 6 months…
    Plus 3.5 years = 70 years!

Is this a dual fulfillment of Jeremiah’s 70 years prophecy or is it just a coincidence?
