This is DAY THREE of the daily devotional.
I am releasing a 50 day daily devotional about the end-times as revealed in Scripture. Along with the text, I will be providing a video where I cover the text of the day, and @verbal-d will be providing an audio version of it. That way, whether you want to read, watch, or listen, you'll be able to enjoy this study as you wish.
The plan is to release this devotional over the next 50 consecutive days, but life may "get in the way." We will do our best, but please be patient with me if I fall behind.

DAY 3: THE SEVENTIETH WEEK OF DANIEL
The six specific purposes that are listed in this verse for the 70 weeks are as follows:
1- To finish the transgression
2- To make an end of sins
3- To make reconciliation for iniquity
4- To bring in everlasting righteousness
5- To seal up the vision and prophecy
6- To anoint the most Holy
These are the only purposes listed.
Please note that God’s wrath is never mentioned in the purposes for these seventy weeks.
If the entire “Seventieth Week of Daniel” is supposedly synonymous with “The Tribulation”, and if “The Tribulation” is when God pours out His end-time wrath, then we should see something mentioned about it.
The passage continues; “Know 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” (Daniel 9:25).
Here we see the first 69 weeks mentioned; “seven weeks” (7) plus “threescore and two weeks” (62) equals 69 weeks.
“And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and 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” (Daniel 9:26)
After these first 69 weeks are finished, there remains only one week left, the “Seventieth Week of Daniel”.
Let’s examine what Scripture tells us about this week.
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and 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.” (Daniel 9:27)
As you might have suspected, there is no mention of God’s wrath in this verse either. We only read that the week will be confirmed by a covenant, and in the midst of the week the Temple sacrifices will be taken away, and the “Abomination of Desolation” will occur.
Point: There is no mention of God’s wrath in relation to any of the 70 weeks of Daniel, much less the 70th week specifically.
As you can probably tell, my goal is to simply help people wrap their mind around a new concept each day, building upon what was already shared. Hopefully each of you understands the point(s) for each day.
If anyone is really interested, I did post the entire volume through an alt account over a year ago. I did so as an experiment to see how hard it would be for a new user to get noticed on steemit, so I didn't let anyone now that I was doing it. You can click here to a post that has links to the entire 50 days of this devotional if you really want to read ahead. That information has always been available there since I first posted it. It is not the purpose of this series to just copy all of my previous work, but instead to transform it into some new outlets by releasing it in an audio and video format, to broaden the reach that this work has.
Again, though I will certainly never claim to know it all, I do believe that many are being lead astray by some popular beliefs. I hope that this project will be able to help many others understand the end-times more accurately. Thanks!
Just in case you are new to this series and wanted to check out the previous audio or videos, here are links to the posts from each day of this series.
Also - A special thanks to @allforthegood for helping design my cover image!
Until next time…
