The Elect
Our sins are forever forgiven

Matthew 18:22  Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. (70x7=490)

Matthew 18:21
Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

22  Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

23  Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.

24  And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.

25  But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.

26  The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

27  Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

28  But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.

29  And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

30  And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.

31  So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.

32  Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:

33  Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?

34  And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.

35  So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

THE OATH OF 70X7=490
** Return back to the main Home Page! **

The first time we see seventy sevenfold in the Bible is with Lamech's self righteous declaration of protection. Jesus also used it to declare how long believers are supposed to forgive each other. And the final time is with Daniel's prophesy of the 70 weeks, which actually reads 70 7's. If we compare Daniel's dual prophesy of the 490 years (70x7= 490 - seventy sevenfold) which began in 458BC and ended in 33AD and again from 1535 until 2025, Jesus is telling us that we should continue forgiving until His kingdom comes to an End here on Earth. / Pennsylvania, U.S.A., Earth, 2009-2012 / 2018-2025
Finalization at the Cross and at the Rapture

Daniel 9:24  Seventy weeks (70 7's) are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city... (70x7=490)

Seventy weeks = 70 7's = 490
Daniel 9:24-25   24 Seventy weeks (seventy sevens) 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.25 Know therefore and understandthat from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem...

Daniel's 490 year duel prophesy leading us once again to The End in 2025!

1.   King Artaxerxes was a powerful king of the Persian Empire. In the year 458B.C. he decreed that Ezra the chief priest be allowed to re-establish the Temple and the Law. By doing so, he rebuilt the walls of salvation and fortified God's spiritual city Jerusalem. The 490 year prophesy ended in the year 33A.D. at the end of Jesus' tribulation on the Cross and His ascension bringing forth the consummation (completion/complete destruction). This completed and ended the Old Testament and the Law.

2.   Sultan Suleiman was the most powerful king of the Ottoman Empire which was the eastern part of the Roman Empire when it split in half. In the year 1535 he decreed that Jerusalem and its walls should be rebuilt. And it was. In fact, the Jerusalem we know and see today is the actual Jerusalem from that command. The 490 year prophesy will end in the year 2025 at the end of this Final Great Tribulation and apparent Rapture bringing forth the consummation (completion/complete destruction) a second time. This will complete and end the New Testament and the Bible.

The non-elect
We are cursed of our sins and need protection

Genesis 4:24  If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold. (70x7=490)

The unsaved are protected from the second death (within Hell), reserved until the final day, their destruction will last forever (Jude 1:13).

Genesis 4:17
And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

18  And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.

19  And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.

20  And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.

21  And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.

22  And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.

23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.

24  If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.

25  And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

26  And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.

Seventy Sevenfold
A declaration of an OATH

We find three examples within scripture of seventy sevenfold (70x7)
1. Matthew 18:22 - Jesus tells us that we are to forgive 70x7 times.
2. Genesis 4:24 - Arrogant evil Lamech self declared his protection 70x7.
3. Daniel 9:24 - God declared a lapsed time of 70x7 until transgressions End.

God gives us two examples of seventy sevenfold. One righteous and the other not.

Although the following verse is referring to these End Times, it also is a good example of how the saved individual lives their life as opposed to how an unsaved individual lives their life.

Revelation 22:11
He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still (living an unrighteous life): and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still (living a righteous life).

When we compare what the Lord shows us in the 490 year chart to the right, we understand that Jesus is telling us that we should forgive others until the very End, thereby living a righteous life.

Daniel 9 is not only complicated to understand but also wields a dual prophetic timeline.

King Artaxerxes' decree to rebuild Jerusalem
There are 490 years (70x7) from the time Ezra was allowed to re-establish the Law and build Jerusalem's walls of salvation until Jesus died on the Cross and ascended to Heaven. 458BC until 33AD = 490 years

Sultan Sulieman's decree to rebuild Jerusalem
There are also 490 years (70x7) from the time the physical walls and the city of Jerusalem were allowed to be rebuilt until the End and the Rapture of God's people to Heaven.
1535 until 2025 = 490 years

Daniel's dual prophesy covers both the rebuilding of spiritual Jerusalem and also physical Jerusalem.
