The Mark of the Beast Explained

Does Bible prophecy foretell the end of the world?

Bible prophecy is the only accurate predictor of the end of the world because God is the only one who actually knows the future.

The Bible is the word of God and cannot fail. In the beginning God spoke and the world was created. His word is living and powerful.

What Bible prophecy tells us when the end of the world will be?

Daniel 9 gives a prophecy about 70 “sevens”. The fulfillment of the 70 “sevens” prophecy brings us to end of the world.

Daniel is praying and pouring out his heart to God in repentance. Daniel is deeply concerned because God’s people are permeated with sin. He begs God to heal His people from their leprosy of sin.

While Daniel is still praying Gabriel arrives from the courts of heaven to answer Daniel’s prayer. Gabriel says:

“As soon as you began to pray, an answer was given, which I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed. Therefore, consider the message and understand the vision:

“Seventy 'sevens' are decreed
For your people and your holy city
To finish transgression,
To put an end to sin,
To atone for wickedness,
To bring in everlasting righteousness,
To seal up vision and prophecy
And to anoint the most holy.” Daniel 9:23,24 (NIV).

In a simple, compact, elegant prophecy Gabriel answers Daniel’s prayer. God does have a plan to deliver His people from sin and wickedness. God does have a plan to bring everlasting righteousness into their lives. God has a plan to bring the sin in the world to an end.

The 70 “sevens” prophecy in Daniel 9:24 has two fulfillments. First, the 70 “sevens” are 70 sabbatical cycles – 490 years, pointing to the first coming of Jesus as our Savior from sin.

Second, the 70 “sevens” are 70 Jubilee cycles – 3,431 years, pointing to the second coming of Jesus when His people will be permanently freed from sin.

The 70 “sevens” bring us to the very year when the world will end. This Bible prophecy tells us the exact year of the end of the world so we can prepare and be ready.
