What is the Shekinah Glory?
What is Shekinah Glory? Is This In The Bible?

Jesus’s glory as GOD was veiled in human flesh, but at times His Glory, the so-called Shekinah Glory, was revealed.  SO what is the Shekinah Glory of God?

Shekinah

What does the word Shekinah mean?  It is not in the Bible, so WHY do we need to know what this word means as regarding God’s Glory?  The word Shekinah is from the Hebrew word shekinot and it actually is in the Bible where GOD is said to settle in or dwell withShekinot means where God is dwelling, settling or where His Divine Presence is.  This Glory is seen when God’s glory filled the Temple and even in the wilderness where He was a Light during the night and the Shekinah cloud of His Glory shaded Israel in the scorching sun of the desert. 
Exodus 13:21-22 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: 22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people. (KJV)
His Presence was revealed by the penetrating Light that filled the Tabernacle, the Temple in Jerusalem and even in the Transfiguration of Jesus on the Mount, where Jesus shone as bright as the sun when He spoke with Moses and Elijah.
Daniel 10:5-6 Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: 6  His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude. (KJV)
Matthew 17:1-3 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 2  And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3  And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. (KJV)
Acts 9:3-4 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:  4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him,
Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? (KJV)
Revelation 1:14-16 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15  And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16  And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. (KJV)

I believe that the whole of Ezekiel Chapter 1, is the Shekinah Glory of God, being revealed to the astounded prophet, so that he could bring it to GOD’S people in Ezekiel’s time and for us today as well.

Jesus’ Transfiguration Glory

Jesus partially revealed His Shekinah Glory on a mountain and allowed Peter, James and John to see this awesome Glory. This is why the Apostle John said that Jesus “dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father” (Jn.1:14); and that Jesus is “the light of men.” John 1:4-7 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7  The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. (KJV) . . . Christ Jesus is the very essence and nature of GOD as Light and that is part of His Shekinah Glory which was why John said “we have seen his glory.”
The Transfiguration is where Jesus allowed Peter, James and John to see His Glory in Matthew 17:1-8. It is where Jesus for a very short time, peeled back His humanity to allow the disciples to see the very Shekinah Glory of God. It overwhelmed them just as it does to anyone where GOD reveals His Glory. 

Humans become as dead men when they see this awesome Glory of God!
Genesis 17:3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, (KJV)  
Leviticus 9:24 And there came a fire out from before the LORD, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces. (KJV)  
Ezekiel 1:28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake. (KJV)  
Ezekiel 3:23 Then I arose, and went forth into the plain: and, behold, the glory of the LORD stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar: and I fell on my face. (KJV) 
Daniel 8:18 Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright. (KJV)  
Daniel 10:8-9 Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me: for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength. 9  Yet heard I the voice of his words: and when I heard the voice of his words, then was I in a deep sleep on my face, and my face toward the ground. (KJV)
Daniel 10:17-19 For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? for as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me. 18  Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me, 19  And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me. (KJV)
Habakkuk 3:16 When I heard, my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the voice: rottenness entered into my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble: when he cometh up unto the people, he will invade them with his troops. (KJV)  
Matthew 17:2-6 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3  And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. 4  Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 5  While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. 6  And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. (KJV)
Acts 9:4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? (KJV)  
Revelation 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: (KJV)
Everyone will see the LORD someday in all His splendor, majesty and Shekinah Glory and ALL shall fall down before Him on bended knees. 
Isaiah 45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. (KJV)
Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. (KJV)
Philippians 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; (KJV) . . . Some (only a few Mat.7:14), will do so very willingly as He is their Saviour, LORD and King . . . but for others, they will wait until He becomes their Judge (Jn.5:22, 27; 2 Tim.4:1, 8; 1 Pet.4:5; Rev.19:11), when He shall send them off into eternal torment (Rev 20:11-15). God CANNOT dwell where there is unconfessed sin or where someone has not repented and trusted in Christ. It is YOUR decision which of two places you will spend eternity: Heaven or Hell! That day to decide should NOT be put off because today is the day of salvation (2 Cor. 6:2), for tomorrow you may not be here . . . and it will be your day of condemnation (Jn.3:18, 36; 8:24).

Special Comments

Edward Gibbon “The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire” (published 1776-1789), said the 5 reasons for the fall of the Roman Empire: (Taken from J. Vernon McGee’s study on Isaiah, Ch. 1:4-18, in his “Thru The Bible” program.)
1. The undermining of the dignity and sanctity of the home, which is the basis of human society.
2. Higher and higher taxes; the spending of public money for free bread and circuses for the populace.
3. The mad craze for pleasure; sports becoming every year more exciting, more brutal, more immoral.
4. The building of great armaments when the great enemy was within; the decay of individual responsibility.
5. The decay of religion, fading into a mere form, losing touch with life, losing power to guide the people.
From The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon

(KJV)

The Power of God, is Incomparable:

(KJV)

Rev. 14:2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: (KJV)

The Power of God, Exalted by Saints:

Jeremiah Chapter 12

Special Comments

I think this is really what God is saying to Jeremiah: If you are troubled now by what things are going to happen, things are going to get much worse. If you are troubled now, what are you going to do when it really gets bad?
Dear one, things may look bad to us today, but they are going to get worse. I cannot help but think of the following: Gen. 6:5-8 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. (KJV)
When I think of good, righteous Noah, and all that he went through by following the command of God, to build a ‘boat’ in the middle of the desert . . . it amazes me. I wonder how many times that Noah, like Jeremiah, had questions for God. But, like Jeremiah, Noah kept on doing as God had told him to do. Can you imagine the insults, the laughter, the ridicule?
What I am trying to get across to you is this . . . The Passage above in Genesis states: every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually . . . that was in Noah’s time. . . but what about today? Anyone who turns on the news, can clearly see that these same words apply to us today. Wickedness is getting worse and worse with each passing day! Only a meager few (Mat.7:14) survived the Flood. Gen. 7:13 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark; (KJV)
https://www.judgmentcoming.org/noah_on_the_ark.htmlIF God put an end to wickedness then, why wouldn’t He do it today? My answer. . . He shall do that, in His timing, not ours.

What Are the Bible Signs of the End Times?

When Noah warned the people of God's coming judgment and certain destruction, they would not listen. Instead they treated Noah as  a fanatic, building a boat in the middle of the desert. Because the people would NOT listen to the warnings . . . when the destruction he predicted came, the people were not prepared.

Dear one, we no longer have Noah . . . but we do have the Bible, and we do have people who are concerned about lost souls headed for Hell and they too warn of impending judgment that is sure to come. Just as it was in the days of Noah and Lot, the soon Coming of the LORD Jesus will trap people who refuse to heed the warning and give their lives to Him.
Luke 17:26-30 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27  They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28  Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29  But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30  Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. (KJV) . . . As it was in the days of Noah, so too it will be when Christ Returns at the Rapture.

PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO GOD! I believe there is amazing evidence that we are living in the end times. The Bible gives us signs that are clear for all to see, even for the scoffers who stubbornly argue against it. Yes. It is true that people throughout history have been proclaiming that they were living in the last days and the end of the world was nigh, and some of the Bible signs have always existed from the early days. 2 Peter 3:8-9  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (KJV) . . . Unbelievers simply refuse to believe what God clearly states in His Holy Word! Jesus WILL Came again! And IF your name is not in the book of life (Lk.10:20; Rev.20:15), you shall be left behind when Jesus comes at the Rapture (1 Thes.4:13-18), and you will have to go through the Tribulation Period (Rev.ch.6-18). You do NOT want to be there!

Never has there been a time before when ALL the events stated in the Bible were evident in so many different places and with such frequency and intensity. Our Generation is the first generation to fulfill ALL the Biblical signs. I have never set dates of times and I never will. Only a fool does that. I simply want to warn anyone who will listen that the Second Coming of Christ Jesus is NEAR!

Jeremiah's Grotto

There is a grotto (cave) called Jeremiah's Grotto which is located at the foot of the very hill where the Cross of Jesus would be raised some 600 years later. Jeremiah is said to have retired there to weep. http://wikimapia.org/7555725/Jeremiah-s-Grotto

Jeremiahs Grotto, Israel . . .  just outside the north wall of Jerusalem, where tradition says Jeremiah wept bitter tears and composed the book of Lamentations.

Jeremiah's Grotto (cave), where the prophet hid in a cave, behind the East Jerusalem bus station. Once it was a Holy Site visited by Christians, Jews and Muslims. In the 1930s its importance declined and after 1948 it was forgotten about. Now the entrance is locked and there is not even a sign for it.  

Jeremiah Chapter 18

Special Comments

Fourteen appeals of Jeremiah:
1. Give heed to me (Jer.18:19).
2. Hearken to the voice of them that contend with me (Jer.18:19).
3. Remember that I stood before You to speak to them, to turn away Your wrath from them (Jer.18:20).
4. Therefore deliver up their children to the famine (Jer. 18:21).
5. Pour out their blood by the force of the sword (Jer.18:21).
6. Let their wives be bereaved of their children (Jer.18:21).
7. Let their wives be widows (Jer.18:21).
8. Let their men be put to death (Jer.18:21).
9. Let their young men be slain by the sword in battle (Jer.18:21).
10. Let a cry be heard from their houses when You bring a troop suddenly upon them (Jer. 18:22).
11. They have digged a pit to take me (Jer.18:22).
12. They have hid snares for my feet (Jer.18:22).
13. Thou knowest all their counsel against me to slay me (Jer.18:23).
14. Forgive not their iniquity (Jer. 18:23). 
15. Neither blot out their sin from Your sight (Jer.18:23).
16. Let them be overthrown before Thee (Jer.18:23).
17. Deal thus with them in the times of Your anger (Jer.18:23)
It would seem that Jeremiah was a very hardhearted man to make such a prayer of destruction for this people, but not so. He knew just how backslidden they were and how impossible it was to save them from the judgment the LORD had been foretelling upon them. Jeremiah had been praying, making intercession in their behalf, suffering because of the sorrow he felt and dreadful sorrow that would soon come upon them. He prayed for them to be saved, and wept much over them (Jer. 4:10,19; 9:18, 21; 10:10). Now he simply submitted himself to the will of the LORD in bringing judgment on these rebels. The prayer here (Jer. 18:19-23) is more of a confirmation of what God had inspired him to predict thus far in his many prophecies, instead of a show of personal hatred because of their opposition to him. It was like saying Amen to the divine decisions.

The End of the Wicked is Eternal Death
Dan. 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. (KJV)
Matthew 25:41-46 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. (KJV)   
2 Thes. 1:8-9 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; (KJV)
Rev. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (KJV)  
Rev.21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (KJV)

Idolatry in those days

This horrendous form of idolatry was where they made their sons and daughters pass through the fire to Molech; the place where they did it is called Tophet (Jer.19:6), of which also mention is made (Isa.30:33; Jer.7:31-33). As we speak of idolatry, we must understand what is meant by Baal, Moloch, Tophet, and the valley of the son of Hinnom. There is no doubt that Baal and Molech, or Moloch, mean the same thing; Baal means a lord, Molech a king. They ordinarily called their idols by these names; and also Malcham (Zep.1:5); and it was of this, the LORD would not be called Baal (Hos.2:16), although He was called Jehovah, Elohim, and Adonai, all which meant lord, as Baal did. Both Baal and Molech seem common names to all idols. There was more than one idol in the house of Baal (2 Ki.10:26). The Ammonites called their principal idol Milcom and Molech, as appears from (1 Ki.11:5; 2 Ki.23:13). It was to this idol that they sacrificed their children. It was a very ancient idolatry, as appeared by the very early law of God against it (Lev.20:3-5). Some say it began in the time of Serug, the father of Nahor (Gen.11:20), and that it had its original from the devil, speaking out of the belly of dead people, commanding this reverence, probably in imitation of God, who to try Abraham's obedience, commanded him to offer up Isaac upon the Mount Moriah (Gen.22:2). We must know there were other sacrifices they offered to Baal: they burnt incense to Baal (2 Ki.23:5); they offered sacrifices and burnt-offerings of beasts (1 Ki.18:26; 2 Ki.10:24), and also to show their great obedience to the devil, they offered their children. What creature they worshipped under this name is not certain, but very probably it was the sun, from (2 Ki.23:5), or some superior being, which they owned as their supreme lord and king, which they, some of them, mistook the sun, moon, and stars to be; they being glorious beings removed out of men's knowledge, so as they had not sufficient means to understand their natures, might, considering their motions, and vast influence they had upon all other creatures, mistake them for animate and supreme beings, to which as they paid other tributes, such as swearing by them (Zep.1:5), burning incense, offering beasts, praying to them. So in imitation of the heathens, and in a pretense of high devotion and reverence in some special times, they offered their children. Some think they only made them go through the fire, but did not burn them; and indeed so most of the Scriptures express this abominable idolatry; but some Scriptures speak it plain enough, that they actually burned them: Ps. 106:37-38 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, 38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood. (KJV) Eze.16:20-21 Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter, 21 That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them? (KJV) . . . This can only mean they were killed, burned alive! 
We read of the idolatry of Jeroboam, who worshipped the TRUE God, but by calves set up at Dan and Beth-el. Ahab surpassed this, bringing in the worship of the creatures, worshipping the sun, moon, and stars, under the name of Baal. But, the first in Judah, of whom we read that he made his son to pass through the fire, was Ahaz, the father of Hezekiah (2 Ki.16:3). He was followed by his grandchild Manasseh (2 Ki.21:6). Josiah, the good son of a bad father, defiled the place where this abominable idolatry was committed (2 Ki.23:10). The place where they committed this horrible abomination was the valley of the son of Hinnom, very close to the city, and the precise place was called Tophet. There was a high place built for the idol, and many think that the name Tophet came from their use of a drum or tabret, with which, while the poor children were burning, they made great noises to drown the sound of the children's screams; though others think the word Tophet originally signifies Hell, or the place of the damned, of which this place, both for the torments and screaming in it, was a lively representation.

What is the Mosaic Covenant?

The Mosaic Covenant is a conditional covenant made between God and the nation of Israel at Mount Sinai (Ex.19-24). It is sometimes called the Sinai Covenant but more often referred to as the Mosaic Covenant since Moses was God’s chosen leader of Israel at that time. The pattern of the covenant is very similar to other ancient covenants of that time because it is between a Sovereign King (God) and His people or subjects (Israel). At the time of the covenant, God reminded the people that they had an obligation to be obedient to His law. Ex. 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: (KJV)  . . . and the people agreed to the covenant when they said, Ex.19:8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD. (KJV)  
This covenant would set the nation of Israel apart from all other nations as God’s chosen people (Deu.7:6; 14:2; Isa.43:20; Dan.11:15), and was just as equally binding as the unconditional covenant that God made with Abraham because it is also a blood covenant. The Mosaic Covenant is an important covenant in both God’s redemptive history and in the history of the nation of Israel through whom God would sovereignly choose to bless the world with both His written Word and the Living Word, Jesus Christ.

The Mosaic Covenant was centered around God's giving His divine law to Moses on Mount Sinai. To understand the different covenants in the Bible and their relationship with one another, it is important to know that the Mosaic Covenant differs considerably from the Abrahamic Covenant and later Biblical covenants because it is conditional in that the blessings that God promises are directly related to Israel’s obedience to the Mosaic Law. IF Israel is obedient, then God will bless them, but IF they disobey, then God will punish them. The blessings and curses that are associated with this conditional covenant are found in Deuteronomy 28.
The other covenants found in the Bible are one-sided covenants of Promise, where God ties Himself to do what He promised, regardless of what the receivers of the Promises might do. On the other hand the Mosaic Covenant is a two-sided agreement, which clearly specifies the obligations of both parties to the covenant.

The Mosaic Covenant is especially important because in it God promises to make Israel a kingdom of priests and a holy nation (Ex.19:6). Israel was supposed to be God’s light to the dark world around them. They were to be a separate and called-out nation so that everyone around them would know that they worshiped the LORD, the Covenant-Keeping God. It is important because it is here that Israel received the Mosaic Law that was to be a schoolmaster pointing the way towards the Coming of Christ (Gal.3:24-25). The Mosaic Law would reveal to people their sin and their need for a Saviour, and it is the Mosaic Law that Christ Himself said that He did not come to abolish but to fulfill (Mat.5:17). This is important because some people get confused by thinking that keeping the Law saved people in the Old Testament, but the Bible is clear that salvation has always been by faith alone, and the Promise of salvation by faith that God had made to Abraham as part of the Abrahamic Covenant still remained in effect (Gal.3:16-18).

The sacrificial system of the Mosaic Covenant did not really take away sins (Heb.10:1-4); it simply predicted the bearing of sin by Christ, the Perfect High Priest Who was also the Perfect Sacrifice (Heb.9:11-28). Therefore, the Mosaic Covenant itself, with all its detailed laws, could NOT save people. It is not that there was any problem with the Law, for the Law is perfect and was given by a Holy God, but the Law had NO power to give people new life, and the people were not able to obey the Law perfectly (Gal.3:21).

The Mosaic Covenant is also referred to as the Old Covenant (2 Cor.3:14; Heb.8:6, 13) and was replaced by the New Covenant in Christ (Lk. 22:20; 1 Cor.11:25; 2 Cor.3:6; Heb.8:8; 8:13; 9:15; 12:24). The New Covenant in Christ is far better than the old Mosaic Covenant that it replaces because it fulfills the Promises made in Jeremiah 31:31-34, as quoted in Hebrews 8.

Jeremiah Chapter 25
The Seventy Years Prophecy

This prophecy is famous in regard of its fixing the exact space of time in which the Jews abode in the captivity of Babylon, seventy years. When they were determined we are plainly enough told (Ezr.1:1), in the first year of Cyrus the king of Persia, but when they began is more disputed; for we read of three carryings into that captivity: the one in the third and fourth year of Jehoiakim, when it would seem that Nebuchadrezzar only carried away a few persons to be bred in his court, amongst whom were Daniel and the three children (Dan.1:1-2), a second seven years after, in Jeconiah's time (2 Ki.24:15-16); the last and most general, eleven years after, in the eleventh year of Zedekiah. It seems most probable that the seventy years must be calculated from the second; for Jeremiah (Jer.29:1), writing to those then in captivity, tells them that when seventy years should be accomplished, God would bring them back.
Seventy years (Jer.27:7). The exact number of years of Sabbaths in four hundred ninety years, the period from Saul to the Babylonian captivity; and was righteous retribution for their violation of the Sabbath (Lev. 26:34, 35; 2 Chr. 36:21). Some say that the seventy years probably begin from the fourth year of Jehoiakim, when Jerusalem was first captured, and many captives, as well as the treasures of the Temple, were carried away.  They end with the first year of Cyrus, who, on taking Babylon, issued an edict for the restoration of the Jews (Ezr.1:1). Daniel's seventy prophetic weeks are based on the seventy years of the captivity (Dan.9:2, 24).
Seventy years is the normal lifespan of an individual (Ps. 90:10; Isa. 23:15). Historically this can be applied in two different ways. First, it could apply to the period from the first deportation in 605 B.C. to the end of the exile in 539/38 B.C. which is how Daniel, who had been taken in that initial group (Dan. 1:1-4), understood the duration (Dan. 9:1, 2). Second, it might apply to the period from the destruction of the Temple in 587/86 B.C. until it was rebuilt in 516/15 B.C. which is how Zechariah (1:12) reckoned the 70 years (Jer. 29:10).
The seventy years of captivity have been calculated differently. Some consider the number 70 to be a mere round number of a normal life span (Ps.90:10; Isa. 23:15). Others take the 70 years to be literal, but do not agree as to the starting point of the period. The two most widely held dates for the years involved in the prophecy are: (1). 605-536 B.C., beginning with the captivity of Daniel and ending with the return under Sheshbazzar and Zerubbabel (Dan.9:1-2; 2 Chr. 36:20-23; Ezra 1:1-3); and (2). 586-516 B.C., from the date of Jerusalem’s fall until the rebuilding of the Temple by Israel’s returning exiles (Hag.1:1-15).
I believe this 70 years of captivity in Babylon to be literal years. It appears that Daniel believed the 70 years to be literal as well. Dan. 9:1 In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans; 2 In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. (KJV)
It appears from this, that Daniel knew Jeremiah and had great respect for his prophecies.

The seventy-year period of time is very important. When the people of Israel were about to enter the land, the LORD told them that every seventh year was to be a Sabbath in which the ground was to lie fallow (Lev.25). Not only did God promise blessing if His Word was obeyed, but He also warned of judgment if it was disobeyed. If they walked contrary to Him, He would walk contrary to them. We must consider that God foresaw their disobedience. Lev. 26:34-35  Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies' land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her sabbaths. 35  As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it. (KJV)

For about 490 years the Sabbatical year was not kept . . . seventy Sabbaths had been neglected. God tells the people through Jeremiah that for seventy years they will live in a strange country while their land has its rest. Then after the lost Sabbatical years have been made up, Israel will be permitted to return to the land. Read what Jeremiah says.

Jeremiah Chapter 30
What are the seventy sevens in Daniel 9:24-27?

Dan. 9:24-27 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. 25  Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 26  And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 27  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. (KJV) . . . This is the only Old Testament Passage which refers to the Messiah as “Messiah.”
Other places:
He is called “Shiloh”. Gen. 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. (KJV)  
He is called the “Prince of Peace”. Isa. 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (KJV) 
He is called the “Root of Jesse”. Isa. 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. (KJV)  
He is called the “Righteous Branch”. Jer. 23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. (KJV)  
The prayer of Daniel; and prophecy of the Seventy Weeks is yet another of those incredible chapters in Scripture about prophecy! Personally, I think that this is one of the greatest chapters in the Book of Daniel, and certainly one of the greatest chapters of the entire Word of God. The subject here is double: prayer and prophecy. If we were to choose the ten greatest chapters in the Bible on the subject of prayer, this 9th Chapter of Daniel would have to be included . . . AND if the ten most important chapters on prophecy were chosen, this 9th Chapter of Daniel would have to be included there too. The first 21 verses give us the prayer of Daniel, and the last 4 verses give us the extremely important prophecy of the Seventy Weeks.
"Seventy sevens have been decreed for your people. . . . So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven sevens and sixty-two sevens; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress. Then after the sixty-two sevens the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.”
Exactly what is meant by “seventy sevens”? The phrase by itself is vague, but taken in context the meaning is clear. Daniel’s prayer in verses 3-19 of the chapter refers to the fulfillment of a specific seventy-year period, the seventy years of the Babylonian captivity (as prophesied by Jeremiah). Daniel received the seventy sevens prophecy in response to his prayer. The prophecy foretold a period of seven times seventy yet to come, or seventy seven-year periods. Seventy seven-year periods equals 490 years.
The prophecy goes on to say that “from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven sevens (49) and sixty-two sevens (434). . . . Then after the sixty-two sevens the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing.”
Nebuchadnezzar had dismantled Jerusalem around 587 BC after having to put down two rebellions there in less than 10 years. At the time this prophecy was given, Jerusalem still lay in ruins. According to the prophecy, from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem there would be seven seven-year periods and sixty-two more seven-year periods . . . or 483 years . . . until the Messiah would come. After the conclusion of the 62 seven-year periods, or after 483rd year, the Messiah would be cut off.
Both the ancient Hebrews to whom Daniel was writing and the ancient Babylonians to whom he was subservient (the Book of Daniel having been written in Babylon during the latter half of the 6th century BC) used a 360-day year.
So, 483 years x 360 days = 173,880 days. This is the equivalent of 476 years and 25 days, using our modern Gregorian calendar’s 365-day year.
As for our starting point, the Persian emperor Artaxerxes Longimanus (who ruled from 464-424 BC) issued the edict to rebuild Jerusalem sometime during the Hebrew month of Nisan in the 20th year of his reign, or c. 445 BC (Nehemiah 2:1-8). From c. 445 BC, 173,880 days brings us to c. AD 30.
According to this prophecy, the Messiah would come, present Himself as Messiah to the nation and then be “cut off” sometime near AD 30. This was fulfilled as Jesus Christ presented Himself to the nation of Israel on Palm Sunday, was crucified on Preparation Day (the annual day on which the Passover Lamb was slain), and rose from the dead on Sunday.
The prophecy then goes on to say that, subsequent to the Messiah’s being killed, “the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.” Within one generation of Christ’s crucifixion, Titus razed Jerusalem and destroyed the temple.
There is some debate about the exact date of the decree that began the 483 years. There is also debate as to whether the days should be counted on our modern 365-day calendars or the 360-day lunar calendar. Regardless, Daniel's prophecy lays out an amazingly accurate time line. If we knew all the exact dates of Daniel's prophecy and timing, we would find it predicted the very day of Christ's death—over 600 years before it occurred.
