Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?  2 Thes 2:3-5, Paul around 50 A.D.




I cannot see what that has to do with the 70 weeks prophecy.

I mostly agree with your post, Ian.  It is better than I could do.  


The Jews would have had in mind Moses' prophecy of the Messiah. Deu. 18:15-19 They would also been expectantly looking for the 69th week to begin. There had been extraordinary stories at his birth, & they had met this 12-y-o in the temple.


 However unless I misunderstand your reasoning, I think you mean the 70th. week.

Can a prophecy be limited to only ONE fulfillment?  Can a prophecy have more than one application?  Certainly the Scriptures bear out the fact that some - many - prophecies have both a near and far application/fulfillment in mind.  


Considering the full scope of Pastor Markle's OP, it should be clear that the 70th week is set aside by itself, and as such, the events of that week are yet future.  There may have been partial fulfillments, which I would say are types or pictures of things yet to come.  Yes, Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD, and the temple was destroyed, and so on.  However, these historical events do not necessitate a complete fulfillment of the prophecy.  The fact that not EVERYTHING was fulfilled in their entirety - that is, the entire scope of other OT prophecies that are related to these events - should be sufficient evidence for us to realize that whatever happened in 70 AD was NOT the COMPLETE fulfillment of the OT prophecies, but only a picture of something that is yet future.  


When Paul said, "all Israel shall be saved," he means that when the Lord returns visibly to this earth to establish His Kingdom, that all Israel will be saved - that is delivered - from the certain imminent destruction and genocide the Antichrist has in mind.  There will not be very many Jews left at the end of the 7 year Tribulation (the 70th week) because the Antichrist and his demonic government will be annihilating them left and right.  It will make Hitler's holocaust look like a picnic.  When Christ returns with His army (Rev. 19) He will destroy the Antichrist, and literally save Israel from certain destruction, and exalt them to the Head of All nations, with Jesus Christ HImself ruling from Jerusalem "with a rod of iron."  That is the literal reading of Scripture.

 t the Jews will be restored to the church.  There is one church from Adam till Christ comes again. I believe that Christ will come again for salvation of the saints and Judgment on his enemies as in the quotes I posted from John's gospel regarding the last day.
