ANTICHRIST'S 7 YEAR PEACE TREATY WITH ISRAEL - THE TRIBULATION
SUMMARY OF EVENTS 2010
The Tribulation begins when Antichrist signs or renews a 7 year peace treaty with Israel. On the day of this event, the Tribulation begins and lasts for 7 years, or 2,520 days (30 days to a Biblical month).
The Tribulation begins after the Rapture of the Church. The Bible does not state whether the Tribulation will begin a few days, a few weeks, or a few months after the disappearance of millions of people from the earth (Rapture of the Christian Church). However, we do know that the Tribulation begins the day the peace treaty with Israel is signed.
1260 days (31/2 years) after the peace treaty is signed with Antichrist and half way into the 7 year Tribulation, we know that Antichrist goes into the rebuild Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and declares himself the one to bring peace to the Jewish People. Antichrist then sets up an image of himself in the Jewish Temple, stops the daily offerings to God and declares himself their leader. This is called the "Abomination of Desolation" in the Bible. The
Jewish people will then see Antichrist's true colors and realize he is
And he shall enter into a strong and firm covenant with the many for
one week [seven years]. And in the midst of the week he shall cause the
sacrifice and offering to cease [for the remaining three and one-half
years]; and upon the wing or pinnacle of abominations [shall come] one
who makes desolate, until the full determined end is poured out on the
The second half of the Tribulation is called the "Great Tribulation". The last 1260 days, Antichrist will be inhabited by Satin himself. Antichrist will mercilessly pursue the Jewish people after they reject him, as well as Tribulation Saints (New Believers in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior). Many Jews and Tribulation Saints will be killed by Antichrist. This is also the time where God will pour out judgment on a Christ rejecting world. The suffering of people on earth during this last 1260 days of the Tribulation will be tremendous. The bible tells us that at no time in the history of the world has man gone through such pain and suffering as this time of the Great Tribulation. Almost 1/2 of the world's population will die during the Tribulation, most during the last half.
After death, the struggle and suffering of believers and followers of Jesus Christ will be over. You will live forever in Heaven with Jesus Christ. SO STAY STRONG!
AT THE END OF THE 7 YEAR TRIBULATION (2,520 DAYS AFTER ISRAEL SIGNS THE PEACE TREATY WITH ANTICHRIST), THE TRUE KING OF KINGS, JESUS CHRIST COMES BACK TO EARTH WITH HIS ARMY OF SAINTS AND DEFEATS THE ENEMY (ANTICHRIST AND HIS FOLLOWERS). JESUS CHRIST THEN SETS UP HIS 1,000 YEAR KINGDOM OF PEACE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS ON EARTH.
TWO PURPOSES OF THE TRIBULATION
1st Purpose: The Jewish people's eyes will be opened to the fact that Jesus Christ is indeed their Messiah. The Jews will then passionately turn to Jesus as their Lord and Savior. This will happen half way through the Tribulation after Antichrist defiles the rebuilt Jewish Temple by declaring himself to be the savior of the Jewish People 3 1/2 years into the 7 year Peace Treaty with Israel. This event is referred to in the Bible as the "Abomination of Desolation".
2nd Purpose: God will pour out his righteous judgment on a Christ rejecting, sinful world.
SUMMARY: These events were prophesied in the Bible over 2500 years ago in the Book of Daniel, and 2000 years ago in the Book of Revelation.
The Tribulation begins with the signing of, or renewing of a 7 year Peace Treaty with Israel by a Charismatic World Leader (Antichrist) falsely promising peace to Israel and the World.
These events will begin to unfold shortly after the Rapture of the Christian Church when millions of people vanish from the world suddenly. This happens when God snatches up to heaven all those who put their faith in Jesus Christ (The Church), whose sins, by way of faith, are already paid for when God shed his own blood and died, through Jesus Christ, in our place at the Cross of Calvary.
For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 - Holy Bible (New Living Translation) (NLT)
Then God allows Satin to rule the world through the Antichrist for 7 years. This Tribulation will be the most difficult time the world has even seen as God pours out his judgment on this Christ-rejecting, sinful world.
After the 7 year Tribulation, Jesus Christ will return to earth in great glory and power and rule the earth for 1,000 years of peace and prosperity known as the Millennium.
DANIEL'S 70TH WEEK & THE 7 YEAR PEACE TREATY WITH ISRAEL Commentary by Jon Courson

A Study of Daniel 9
weeks are determined upon Israel to finish—or literally to
restrain—transgression. That is, Satan—the one who causes
transgression—will be restrained. After seventy weeks, sin will end.
There will also be reconciliation for iniquity and everlasting
righteousness. The vision and prophecy will be sealed and the most Holy
anointed. In other words, the message to Daniel was, “Daniel, good
things are going to happen at the end of seventy weeks, or four hundred
ninety years. Iniquity will be forgiven. Prophecy will be fulfilled.
The most Holy One, Jesus Christ, will be anointed and received as King.”
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.
was told that sixty-nine weeks—or four hundred eighty-three years—would
pass between the time the command to rebuild Jerusalem was given and
Messiah would come. Why is there a division between seven weeks and
sixty-two weeks? We see the answer in Nehemiah. Don’t forget, the Jews
were in captivity in Babylon. Jerusalem was lying in ruins. On March
14, 445 b.c., the command was given the Jews to go back home, to
rebuild Jerusalem, and restore the temple. Zerubbabel, Ezra, Nehemiah
and others began to lead groups of Jews out of captivity and back to
Jerusalem to restore and rebuild the city. How long did it take to
rebuild the city? Forty-nine years. That’s why there are seven weeks
followed by sixty-two additional weeks.
you begin at March 14, 445 b.c. and use the Jewish calendar of three
hundred sixty days per year, sixty-nine weeks, or four hundred
eighty-three years, brings you to April 6, a.d. 32. What happened on
that day? Messiah came riding into Jerusalem on a donkey, offering
Himself to be the King of Israel. At first they welcomed Him, waving
palm branches and saying, “Hosanna in the highest. Save now. Be our
But within days, the fickle crowd said, “We will not have this Man rule over us. Away with Him. Crucify Him.”
when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If
thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which
belong unto thy peace!… Luke 19:41, 42 (a)
Jesus said, “you should have known that this is your day! Oh, the peace
that would be possible if I were your King.” But they didn’t know it
was their day because they didn’t know Bible prophecy. And Jesus wept.
Daniel 9:26 (a)
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself…
will come. And yet He will be cut off. He’ll be killed—but not for
Himself. Indeed, He who knew no sin was made sin for us that we might
be made the righteousness of God through Him (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Jesus died for our sins. Messiah came, was rejected by Israel, was cut
off for our sins—exactly as the prophet declared.
Daniel 9:26 (b), 27 (a)
the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the
sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end
of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the
covenant with many for one week…
After sixty-nine weeks Messiah came.
But there’s still one week left. The history of Israel consists of
seventy weeks. Therefore, one seven-year period remains to be unfolded.
At that time, the prince of the people, antichrist—a charismatic,
influential, intelligent world leader—will appear on the scene. And the
people will say, “You’re the one we want to lead us.”
Daniel 9:27 (b)
in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation
to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it
desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be
poured upon the desolate.
will come on the scene and negotiate a treaty. He’ll solve the Middle
East problem ingeniously, including a way that the temple will be
rebuilt in Jerusalem.
“But isn’t there a mosque on the temple mount?” you ask.
discoveries in recent years have unmistakably confirmed that the temple
was a little bit north of the Dome of the Rock Mosque. And,
interestingly enough, the space where it sat is blank. The Dome of the
Rock Mosque sits in the outer court of the old temple. The outer court
of the temple was the area where Gentiles could come.
Jews today say they will recognize Messiah as the One who rebuilds the
temple. Antichrist will do just that. But in the middle of his
seven-year treaty, his true colors will show. He’ll go into the temple,
cause the sacrifices to cease, and set up an image of either himself or
Zeus and demand it be worshiped. Matthew 24 calls this “the abomination
of desolation.” When this happens, the Jews will say, “What have we
done?” And, realizing the Jews are no longer going along with his
program, antichrist will wage war against Israel.
three and one-half years, hell will literally break loose on this
planet. Finally, at the end of the seven-year Tribulation—or Daniel’s
seventieth week—Jesus will come back to rule and reign on this earth.
Thus, with the seventy weeks completed, there will be an end to sin, a
beginning of everlasting rightness, and the Most Holy will be anointed.
have already seen the first sixty-nine weeks come to pass historically.
When will Daniel’s seventieth week begin? It could begin anytime.
before it does, Jesus will call us up to heaven in the Rapture. For
seven years, we’ll be in heaven, getting to know Him. The church was
not in Daniel’s first sixty-nine weeks, so neither shall she be in
Daniel’s seventieth week. That’s why Jeremiah calls the Tribulation the
time of Jacob’s trouble (30:7). What separates Daniel’s sixty-ninth
week from the seventieth? It’s the period of time known as the church
age. In a.d. 70, when the temple was destroyed and the Jews were
scattered, the prophetic clock stopped ticking. But in May, 1948, when
Israel became a nation once again, the prophetic clock started ticking
