“62 weeks” of Dan. 9 confirm date of Exodus and foretold 1948

“In Daniel, is there a connection between the 62 Years of Darius/Cyrus and the 62 Weeks?”

Daniel 5:30-31 In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain. And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and two years old.

Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself

Yesterday, Wednesday, July 21st, 2021, the Lord granted insight into the above question. The insight was confirmed by someone who made a comment this morning on 1260d.com using similar math. She was unaware of my study from yesterday, or my intention to post about this subject today.

Considering I have never gone into great detail about the significance of “62 weeks” or “62 years” before, I unlikely influenced her by some past post. Therefore, I believe it is the Lord’s confirmation. After all, when is the last time you heard someone talking about “62 years” or “62 weeks”? It’s a biblical numeric that very few are even aware of.

Unfortunately, I have limited time today! I may not finish this post today, at least properly edited. Therefore, for now, I have chosen to repost the comment made by “Chanda Pinto”, and my response.

Also, today I noticed an article about “62 years”. Actually, it’s a question asked on hermeneutics.stackexchange.com. The question is:

In Daniel, is there a connection between the 62 Years of Darius/Cyrus and the 62 Weeks?

The answers supplied by various people at that site lays a good foundation for what is revealed here. What the Lord showed me, or should I say, showed us, answers what is unanswered at “hemeneutics.stackexhange.com”.

Birth of King Cyrus

What is of particular relevance at that site concerns whether Darius and Cyrus are one and the same person? If not, then coincidently they were both born about the same time. Either way, the prophecies of Isaiah concerning Cyrus bear upon what will be revealed here in this post, (Isaiah 40-46). Because even if Darius is not Cyrus, it still holds true that Darius is the representative of King Cyrus. As such, the prophecies of Isaiah still relate.

Notice the connection in Isaiah 44 between the birth of Israel as a nation to “King Cyrus”, who conquered Babylon at age 62.

“Family of Jacob, listen to me. You are my servant.
People of Israel, I have chosen you.
I made you. I formed you when you were born as a nation.
I will help you.
So listen to what I am saying.
Family of Jacob, do not be afraid. You are my servant.
People of Israel, I have chosen you.
I will pour out water on the thirsty land.
I will make streams flow on the dry ground.
I will pour out my Spirit on your children…

The Lord says,
“People of Israel, I set you free.
I formed you when you were born as a nation.

“I am the Lord. I am the Maker of everything.
I alone stretch out the heavens.
I spread out the earth by myself.

25 “Some prophets are not really prophets at all.
I show that their signs are fake.
I make those who practice evil magic look foolish.
I destroy the learning of those who think they are wise.
Their knowledge does not make any sense at all.
26 I make the words of my servants the prophets come true.
I carry out what my messengers say will happen.

“I say about Jerusalem,
‘My people will live there again.’
I say about the towns of Judah,
‘They will be rebuilt.’
I say about their broken-down buildings,
‘I will make them like new again.’
27 I say to the deep waters,
‘Dry up. Let your streams become dry.’
28 I say about Cyrus,
‘He is my shepherd.
He will accomplish everything I want him to.
He will say about Jerusalem,
“Let it be rebuilt.”
And he will say about the temple,
“Let its foundations be laid.” ’

(Isaiah 40 to 46 contain other references to this link between Cyrus and the birth of the nation of Israel.)

As we will show, the birth of Cyrus was a marker in time that contained a prophecy that from his birth to the birth of the nation of Israel in 1948 spanned “seven years of years”.

We will also show that the “62 years” and “62 weeks/sevens” (434 years) of Daniel 5 and 9 confirm what most scholars now attest to, namely that Israel entered the Promised Land in 1407t/6n BC. (“t” and “n” are abbreviations for the Jewish months of Tishri/October and Nisan/April.) (Daniel 9, like the Book of Jubilees, is about jubilees of 49 years and generations of 70 years. There are 70 jubilees (490 “weeks”) from 1406 BC to 2025 AD.)

The latter point that affirms the 1406 BC date for when Israel entered the Promised land is what will be discussed first and after that how it also foretold when Israel would become a nation.

Daniel’s 434 years (“62 weeks”)

Daniel refers to 434 years as 62 weeks/sevens, Daniel 9. (Specifically, one jubilee of “49 years” plus  “434 years” plus “seven years”, for a total of ten jubilees, Dan. 9:24-27.) Daniel is told that just as there were 490 years before the exile (actual, more like two sets of 490), there would be yet another 490 until the Messiah comes. (Interestingly, Cyrus is called a messiah(meaning, “to anoint”, Dan. 9:24-27. Cyrus/Darius is symbolic of Jesus the Messiah, Isa. 45:1.)

Daniel’s ten jubilees (490 years) is a complex discussion. I have written numerous articles over the years about this, the most recent was about two weeks ago on July 6, 2021, Daniel’s 490 (“seventy weeks”) in the Mirror.

However, for our purposes, let us focus on the “62 weeks”.

Babylon fell to Cyrus/Darius during Tabernacles (Tishri) of 539 BC, a date well established. (By the way, recall that Daniel was also called Belshazzar — the same name as the king, together who are symbolic of the death and glorification of Messiah — but that’s another story!)

Dan. 5:29 Then at Belshazzar’s command, Daniel was clothed in purple, a gold chain was placed around his neck, and he was proclaimed the third highest ruler in the kingdom.

30 That very night Belshazzar, king of the Babylonians, was slain, 31 and Darius the Mede took over the kingdom, at the age of sixty-two.

Babylon fell in 539t BC. The proclamation for the Jews to return home occurred the next year, 538 BC. And the temple began to be rebuilt in 537 BC regarding the prophecy of Daniel 9 (given in 536 BC), although there was an additional delay of “21 weeks/sevens” (Dan. 10, Ezra, Zech.) until the temple was completed in 516n BC.

Back to the “62 weeks”

601t/600n (birth of Darius/Cyrus) unto 539t/8n BC (end of Babylon) is the “62 years of age” of Darius/Cyrus (Dan. 5).

539t/8n BC less the “62 weeks” (434 years) of Dan. 9 equals the death of King David (973t/972n BC plus 434 years equals 539t/8n BC). However, David likely died 971t BC, and the temple of Solomon in 967 BC, which are 434 years and also exactly 430 years (Dan. 9:24-27 and Ezek. 4) unto 517 BC when the temple was rebuilt; (from 1Kings 6:1 to Ezra 3:8 are exactly 430 years). (In the Bible, the temple symbolizes Messiah in his death and resurrection.)

And 434 times two years (868 years) elapsed from the death of Aaron and Moses (called “king in Jeshurun”, in Deut. 33:4–5), which is also the year when Israel entered the land of Israel on the two sides of the Jordan. This is also when the jubilees officially began, that is, 1407t/1406n BC.

Therefore, the “62 weeks” and the “62 years” confirm when the Exodus and entry into the Promised Land occurred, 1446 BC and 1407t/1406n BC.

Therefore, from the death of King Moses unto the death of King David are “434 years”, and from the death of King David unto the death of Belteshazzar, king of Babylon (the same name as Daniel) are again 434 years; (and Darius/Cyrus took the throne at “62 years of age”, that is, at the end of the 62 x 7 and 62 x 7 years.) Aaron/Moses, David/Solomon, and Belteshazzar/Cyrus are all types of Messiah and they all intertwine with the numeric that culminates in Jesus the Messiah, as per the prophecy of Daniel (ch.9).

This also agrees with the date of Ezekiel’s revelation (Ezek 40) regarding a future temple. His vision is dated as given either on the Day of Atonement or on the anniversary of when Israel entered the Promised Land (Tishri 10th or Nisan 10th), which is when the jubilee is announced, which corresponds perfectly to the 17th jubilee (1407t/6n to 574t/n BC).

Next, we look at the comment posted today about “62”, and how it points to 1948 when Israel became a nation.

1274 (& 1260) + 1274 (& 1260) unto 1948 when Israel became a nation

The comment posted on 1260d.com

Below is part of the comment by Chanda Pinto on July 22, 2021, at 8:37 am, posted on 1260d.com.

We were taught the most significant year prophetically was 1948. We were taught this started the Parable of the Fig Tree and this Generation would not pass before all prophecy was fulfilled. The good and the bad fig returning to the Holy land. For about 20 years that was that but I kept having people, even my Mom asking where are the good figs, they are not over there…

A generation can be 40, 70, 120…..Noah knew he had 120 yrs before the flood this is why 1917 became interesting. We know in the past 120 years we’ve seen: Electricity, Cars, Airplanes, Spaceships, computers, Ect….. out of the past 6000 yrs the last 120 have been very different.
Almost finished with my thought…

1948-62 week yrs = 2010 ( could relate to the 7 good yrs of plenty before the famine Joseph)
2010-2017 ( 1st 7 yrs growing extra before the 7 bad yrs
2017-2024 ( 7 bad years leading to the final days)
(The Eclipses also are factored in this and the 2024 USA Eclipse is a time marker)
The Global Agenda has stated 2030 is the year they plan to have total control.

And last the Mirror…
2021 years ago Christ was near the age of 21-ish
2030 Christ will have turned 30…..( Some say the cross was at age 30 some say 33)… All things considered and the 2030 date would be 2000 years from the cross. My simple mind is like 4000 yrs before the cross, and 2000 after mark 6000… That leaves the 1000 Millennium = 7000 and then the 8th day!…

My response to the above comment

Thanks for sharing. Biblical numeric is like the rest of the Bible — increasingly complex the more one studies — without end. You have described the basic outline, which is good to be reminded of. It’s part of the basic framework upon which all else is built. I would add to this the 70 jubilees from 1406 BC when Israel entered the Promised Land unto 2025.

It’s interesting that you mention the “62 x 7”. I planned to write an article about that today, based upon my study from yesterday. It also relates to 1948 and 2010. I do not believe this to be a coincidence considering very few people are aware of the significance of 62 weeks. Awesome confirmation, including the “seven-year famine part”. It’s like you were reading my notes! The groundwork for what I plan to say was laid three and 25 years ago in earlier articles.

I plan to demonstrate that the “62 years of age” (601t/n to 539t/538n BC, & died 530 BC at 70) when Darius took the throne (539t BC) is directly related to Daniel’s “62 weeks”.

Now forward this “62 years of age” by Enoch’s seven years of years (364 x 7 days/years) from 601t BC to arrive at 1948 to 2010, etc. Plus your next seven years — not symbolic of the famine, but very close to that (2001-2008-2015). See www.bible-codes.org/world_trade_center_sign_economic-collapse.htm

In the book of Enoch, 1260 + 1260 days/years is equivalent to 364 x 7 (1274 + 1274). For “1260 + 1260 years” from Ezekiel’s temple vision unto 1948, see, www.1260-1290-days-bible-prophecy.org/bible_prophecy-Israel-nation-1260-years-2x.htm

Daniel 5:30-31 In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain. And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and two years old.

Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself

In conclusion

Thus, both the date of Cyrus’ birth (601t BC) and when Ezekiel’s vision of the future temple was given (573n BC) confirm the date when Israel entered the Promised Land and the jubilees commenced, that is, 1407t/1406n BC.

And these same two dates, 601 and 573 BC point not just to the past when Israel became a nation in 1446/1406 BC, but to the future when Israel was to be a nation once again — in 1948, which is 1274 + 1274 and 1260 + 1260 years later, the time frames used in the Book of Enoch and the Bible.

Also, see Daniel’s 490 (“seventy weeks”) in the mirror.

Daniel’s 490-year prophecy in the Mirror of BC/AD, are evenly balanced so that Christ is in the middle, forming a mirror. That is, each date is 490 + 490 years to the other

    1. Interesting. I feel sorry for the person who purchased all this only to have it confiscated. Apparently, he purchased it ignorantly with plans for its inclusion in a Bible Museum.

  1. MANUFACTURING OF UNIQUE RED DYE FOR THIRD TEMPLE BEGINS
    JUL 26, 2021 | BIBLICAL NEWS

    The Tola’ath worm, scientifically called the coccus ilicis, is a worm found in the Middle East and was used in ancient times to make a crimson …in Psalm 22:6, the word for “worm” is towla’ or tola’ath. This Psalm is prophetic of the cross of Jesus. And in verse 6, it says, “But I am a worm, and no man…”
    We were taught about this worm by our Pastor many years ago, so when I noticed this article in the news it brought back all the memories. There probably more significance to this event then I’m able to grasp but I work at it none the less with much prayer.

  2. OK Guys , I am no theological genius, or very good at math. However, the 62 years, seems to follow what is going on. Can I share some dates, in hopes. One of You Wonderful, scientific mathematic genius, clearly gifted by the Lord, and have studied, to show yourselves approved. That is so rare, of

You with, after 25 years, serving the vulnerable clients, and being a the state board, in WA, State. Ground floor of Evil, working people. To say the least. I lost my contracts after speaking out at a state Senate ways and means, exposing the abuse and theft by our Governor , along with state legislatures, & the top service Union in the state, & country.

    So. Enough of my background, to say, I’ve been consulting on a government, case, really global. At the beginning, I did not know where this would lead. I glad I did not, as I would have ran the opposite direction in fear and disbelief. Gods timing is perfect.

And you don’t wamt that!! Now also described a bit of his horrible Failings,?? Thank you anyone!!

  3. I wrote my comment out on a notepad and it was formatted nice and easy to read but I didn’t notice when I replied the formatting was lost so it might be hard to read. Here is the formatted version.
    Command the Porters to Watch-
    Obededom / Connects to Daniels timeline
    70 – 7 -62 – 1335
    Mark 13:32 But of the Day and Hour knows no man, no not the angels, which are in Heaven, neither the Son, But the Father. 33 Take heed that you WATCH ( agrypno: NOT/ Hypnos: SLEEP)& PRAY: for you know not when the time is. 34 As a man taking a far journey, who left HIS HOUSE and gave authority to HIS servants, every man his work and commanded the PORTERS to WATCH….

    Who is the PORTER… Thyroros from Thyra = Door and Ouros = Watcher

    Mark 13:35 (1335) WATCH for you know not when the Master of the HOUSE comes:
    The 4 Watches The porter is responsible for watching:
    1. Evening watch 2. Midnight watch 3. Roster Crow 4. Morning

    The Porters held the keys to the house and were responsible for unlocking the Doors to the HOUSE/Temple in the mornings. The key is called the key of David it is the Temple.

    Revelation 3:7 He has the Key of David v8 I have set before you an OPEN DOOR v12 in the Temple/House 3:20

    The House of David has the Key: Referring to Christ)
    Isa 22:22 The Key of the House of David ( Key = maph-teach meaning: key, opening door)
    This word “Key” is used in 4 other places:
    1 Chr 9:24 Four Spirits were Porters ( East, West, North, South)
    v26 Levites, The Four Chief Porters in their set offices were over the Chambers and Treasuries of the HOUSE of GOD. Lodged around it because the charge was on them and Opening-Key every morning.

    Related numbers to his household:
    Obededom 1 of 4 Chief Porters South (1st Chr 26:15)
    1st Chr 26:8 Obededom’s household 62
    1st Chr 16:38 Obededom + Hosah + 68 = 70

    When we look at Obededom we start to see Daniels Timeline…..

    1 Chronicles 26:6-7 Also unto Shemaiah his son were sons born, that ruled throughout the house of their father: for they were mighty men of valour.7 The sons of Shemaiah; Othni, and Rephael, and Obed, Elzabad, whose brethren were strong men, Elihu, and Semachiah. (Shemaiah + 6 sons = 7) All these of the sons of Obededom: they and their sons and their brethren, able men for strength for the service, were threescore and two of Obededom. And the lot eastward fell to Shelemiah.

    Daniel 7:24
    70 weeks are determined unto Messiah the Prince 7 weeks and 62 weeks

    1 Chr 15:18 Obededom one of 14 Porters= 14 days

    What’s also decoded in this is to learn the Parable of the Fig Tree

    Fig Tree: Matt 24:32 Learn the Parable of the Fig Tree, tender branches, puts forth leaves you know summer is nigh (1335 days) v33 So likewise, when you see all these, know it is near, even at the DOORS/PORTORS.

    Luke 13:6 (3.5 years for the FIG Tree to bear Fruit, dig a mot around it in the winter for the rain to water it. So three years have passed it was in the Fall and then the winter rain would of brought it to three years and then you would check for the fruit of the figs towards the next year.

    The other thing about the Parable of the Fig Tree and the Temple the Temple expresses the Tree of Life through the Menorah. So The Priests would dress the 7 lamps and in the structure of the Menorah there are Almond blossoms. So in the Center there are 4 at each branch. This is very significant because it represents the Tree of life and one of the fruits is the Fig Tree. So the Fig Tree tells us to look at the Menorah and the Almond blossoms represent Eclipses. Each Almond blossom is marked by 2 Eclipses. There’s a main Eclipse that’s marking the Seals, Trumpets, and Bowls in 6 month intervals over 10 ½ years in the Menorah. We arrive at The middle branch with those 3 Eclipses mark/mirror Daniel and Odededom’s timelines. So Obededom as a Porter that had the key who had in his household associated by the numbers 62/7/70/1335

    Those 70 weeks are precisely the blood moon on May 25th 2021 arriving with a day or 2 of the 1335 days marking perfectly then 2 weeks later was a solar eclipse June 10th 2021 at the North Pole Russia & Canada. That is marking specifically the transition from the Trumpets to the Bowls or cups of HIS indignation.

  4. I’ve got notes on this subject :

    The Bible records 4 decrees concerning Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity:
    536 BC: Decree by Cyrus to rebuild temple.
    519 BC: Decree by Darius I to finish temple.
    457 BC: Decree by Artaxerxes I of Persia.
    444 BC: Decree by Artaxerxes to Nehemiah to finish wall at Jerusalem
    Xerxes the Great was Ahasuerus of the book of Esther, who was persuaded by Haman (being influenced by his wife and ten sons) to issue a death decree against God’s people.
    —————-
    Second Temple
    According to the Book of Ezra, construction of the Second Temple was authorized by Cyrus the Great and began in 538 BC, after the fall of the Babylonian Empire the year before. It was completed 23 years later, on the third day of Adar, in the sixth year of the reign of Darius the Great (12 March 515 BC), dedicated by the Jewish governor Zerubbabel. However, with a full reading of the Book of Ezra and the Book of Nehemiah, there were four edicts to build the Second Temple, which were issued by three kings. Cyrus in 536 BC, which is recorded in the first chapter of Ezra. Next, Darius I of Persia in 519 BC, which is recorded in the sixth chapter of Ezra. Third, Artaxerxes I of Persia in 457 BC, which was the seventh year of his reign, and is recorded in the seventh chapter of Ezra. Finally, by Artaxerxes again in 444 BC in the second chapter of Nehemiah. Also, despite the fact that the new temple was not as extravagant or imposing as its predecessor, it still dominated the Jerusalem skyline and remained an important structure throughout the time of Persian suzerainty. Moreover, the temple narrowly avoided being destroyed again in 332 BC when the Jews refused to acknowledge the deification of Alexander the Great of Macedonia. Alexander was allegedly “turned from his anger” at the last minute by astute diplomacy and flattery. Further, after the death of Alexander on 13 June 323 BC, and the dismembering of his empire, the Ptolemies came to rule over Judea and the Temple. Under the Ptolemies, the Jews were given many civil liberties and lived content under their rule. However, when the Ptolemaic army was defeated at Panium by Antiochus III of the Seleucids in 198 BC, this policy changed. Antiochus wanted to Hellenize the Jews, attempting to introduce the Greek pantheon into the temple. Moreover, a rebellion ensued and was brutally crushed, but no further action by Antiochus was taken, and when Antiochus died in 187 BC at Luristan, his son Seleucus IV Philopator succeeded him. However, his policies never took effect in Judea, since he was assassinated the year after his ascension.
    Antiochus IV Epiphanes succeeded his older brother to the Seleucid throne and immediately adopted his father’s previous policy of universal Hellenisation. The Jews rebelled again and Antiochus, in a rage, retaliated in force. Considering the previous episodes of discontent, the Jews became incensed when the religious observances of Sabbath and circumcision were officially outlawed. When Antiochus erected a statue of Zeus in their temple and Hellenic priests began sacrificing pigs (the usual sacrifice offered to the Greek gods in the Hellenic religion), their anger began to spiral. When a Greek official ordered a Jewish priest to perform a Hellenic sacrifice, the priest (Mattathias) killed him. In 167 BC, the Jews rose up en masse behind Mattathias and his five sons to fight and win their freedom from Seleucid authority. Mattathias’ son Judas Maccabaeus, now called “The Hammer”, re-dedicated the temple in 165 BC and the Jews celebrate this event to this day as a major part of the festival of Hanukkah.
    The temple was rededicated under Judas Maccabaeus in 164 BC. During the Roman era, Pompey entered (and thereby desecrated) the Holy of Holies in 63 BC, but left the Temple intact. In 54 BC, Crassus looted the Temple treasury only for him to die the year after at the Battle of Carrhae against Parthia. According to folklore he was executed by having molten gold poured down his throat. When news of this reached the Jews, they revolted again, only to be put down in 43 BC.
    Around 20 BC, the building was renovated and expanded by Herod the Great, and became known as Herod’s Temple. It was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD during the Siege of Jerusalem. During the Bar Kokhba revolt against the Romans in 132–135 AD, Simon bar Kokhba and Rabbi Akiva wanted to rebuild the Temple, but bar Kokhba’s revolt failed and the Jews were banned from Jerusalem (except for Tisha B’Av) by the Roman Empire. The emperor Julian allowed to have the Temple rebuilt but the Galilee earthquake of 363 ended all attempts ever since.
    After the Muslim conquest of Jerusalem in the 7th century, Umayyad Caliph Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan ordered the construction of an Islamic shrine, the Dome of the Rock, on the site of the Temple. The shrine has stood on the mount since 691 AD; the al-Aqsa Mosque, from roughly the same period, also stands in the Temple courtyard.

  5. Isaiah predicted that Cyrus would send the Captives home to Jerusalem, to rebuild the Temple…….so the Captives (in Babylon) rejoiced when Cyrus took the Throne in Babylon. The Captives showed the Scripture to Cyrus, and he was so moved, he did what the Scripture said. The Scripture said that the God of Israel put Cyrus on the Babylon Throne, the lone world “undefeatable” super-power of that day. Israel’s God had done the impossible, and predicted it 100 years before Cyrus was born. So we believe that our Cyrus (Jesus) will soon do the impossible for us. Our Sabbath(Jesus) is our Delight (Colossians 2;16).
