God Determines to Punish Israel – Ezekiel, Jeremiah & Daniel

743 BC The Assyrians Invade Israel

The ten Northern Tribes are dispersed – called the ten lost tribes. The Assyrians took many captive but left a few behind. These intermarried with the Assyrians. They were called Samaritans.

606 BC The Babylonians led by Nebuchadnezzar invade Judah and take the young men back to Babylon – Daniel
   1st Wave: 606 BC Daniel exiled
   2nd Wave: 598 BC Ezekiel exiled
   3rd Wave: 587 BC Temple is destroyed

The Children of Israel are given a 70 year warning period – Jeremiah 25:1-11; Jeremiah 29:10

538 BC Cyrus declares that the Children of Israel can go back to their homeland. This ends the 70 year warning – Daniel 9

Only a remnant return to Israel – Ezra, Nehemiah

The Temple is rebuilt

Ezekiel had prophesied that Israel would be in exile for 430 years. After the 70 year warning, that left 360 years – Ezekiel 4

The 360 years is multiplied by seven –Leviticus 26:18; Daniel 3:19
     360 x 7 = 2,520 years…Israel was out of her homeland for exactly that amount of time.
     The 2,520 years ended on May 14, 1948… making it exactly 2,520 years of exile.  

From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem (that decree given by Cyrus) until the Messiah would come, Daniel 9 prophesies that it would be 69 x 7 years. This is 173,880 days, taking us to the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem – we call it Palm Sunday.

Jesus is crucified, rises from the grave, and ascends into heaven. – Matthew, Mark, Luke, John & Acts 1

The Birth of the Church – Acts 2

70 AD, on the 9th of Av, the Second Temple is destroyed – Matthew 24:2

The Church Age – Revelation 2 & 3

The Church Age ends with the Rapture of the Church – Leviticus 23; 1 Corinthians 15:51; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Signing of a seven year Peace Treaty – Daniel 9:27

Rise of Antichrist – 2 Thessalonians 2
