PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: The Tribulation (Part 5) from Dr. Tim LaHaye
The prophecy of Daniel 9:27 tells us exactly what will start the Tribulation: that moment when “he [the prince who is to come] shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. It seems that the Antichrist will make a covenant with the nation of Israel for seven years. This may relate to the rider on the white horse of Revelation 6, who comes in peace, for he has no arrows or implements of war in his hand. It appears that the Antichrist will offer peace to the world and make a covenant with Israel, bringing peace to the Jewish people, who will then be able to rebuild their temple and reinstate their sacrifices again — for three-and-a-half years!
But “in the midst of the week [of years, or after three-and-a-half years have elapsed] he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate.” The Antichrist will break his covenant with the Jews in the middle of the Tribulation and will launch the greatest time of desolation in the history of the world. How long will it last? Daniel 9:27 says, “until the consummation, which is determined.” This is the same as “the time of the end,” meaning the end of the 70 weeks or 490 years, which is the same as the “consummation” of God’s dealing with the Jews and the literal coming of Christ to set up His kingdom.
