Father of Faithfulness
Leviticus 25:1-12, 20-22 Godís proper cycle for life was to have everything and everyone rest the seventh year. He promised to provide; they had to trust.
Leviticus 26:33-36 The consequences of disobedience
Jeremiah 25:1-11 After centuries of disobedience filled with immorality and idolatry, Jeremiah tells of their end that indeed did happen.
2Chronicles 36:11-21 The prophecy was fulfilled because God is faithful. The time was in relationship to the failed Sabbaths.
Jeremiah 29:10-14 He promised to bring them back after 70 years.
They did not obey for 490 years, which is why they were in captivity for 70 years − one year for each Sabbath year neglected. 490 divided by seven equals 70.
Daniel 9:1 and 2 Daniel realized while reading Jeremiah that the 70 years of captivity were drawing to a close.
Daniel 9:3- 23 His prayer
9:24 God introduces another 490 year period of time.
To finish the transgression
- To make an end of sin
- To make atonement for iniquity
- To bring everlasting righteousness
- To seal up vision and prophecy
- To anoint the most holy place
9:25-27 70 heptads (groups of seven) equal 490. 490 is divided into 483 and 7. The 483 till Christ is divided into 49 (7X7, Jubilee years) and 434.
