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

  1. To make an end of sin

  2. To make atonement for iniquity

  3. To bring everlasting righteousness

  4. To seal up vision and prophecy

  5. 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.
