Daniel 9 and Zechariah 9: Precision, At It's Finest.

Did you know that, also, on the 10th of Nisan, 5777, on the Hebrew calendar, there was a fulfillment, of a Biblical Prophecy, that is so amazingly precise, so mind-boggling, that most teachers refuse to put it into their sermons?

As previously posted, this was the day that Y'shua / Jesus, allowed himself to be presented, for the first time, as the Messiah. As he rode in to Jerusalem, on the back of a mule, only a few recognized it as an exact day fulfillment of prophecy, foretold, by Daniel and Zechariah, both between 500-600 years before the time of Y'shua/Jesus.

In Daniel 9, verse 25, it states that there will be 483 years, from the commandment to rebuild Jerusalem, after the Babylonian captivity, to when the Messiah would come. According to both Biblical and non-biblical sources, it was 483 years, to the day, from the commandment by the Persian king, Cyrus the Great, to rebuild Jerusalem and the walls, until the first time Y'shua / Jesus allowed himself to be presented, as Messiah, the King, at the gates of Jerusalem.

"Know, therefore, and discern that seven weeks [of years] will elapse between the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Yerushalayim until an anointed prince comes."

Of course, Y'shua / Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a colt, a foal of a donkey, just as Zechariah 9 said.

“Behold, your King is coming to you…lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey ”

...and that's what you'll find, When You Search For The Truth.


  1. Hi Keith, good post my friend.
    How did you get a photograph of Jesus riding a donkey ?
    Did they had photo cameras in those days ? ;-)

  2. Thanks, Paul. Actually, I have a time machine. :-)

  3. A time machine, Hm, that sounds interesting :-)

  4. I'm glad we can laugh outside our debates.

  5. Of course, but our debates are necessary. I think that most religious people are irrelevant because they are scared to engage in a debate and so they never come to maturity, they stay infants all of their life.

  6. Hi Keith,
    yes that is right, all truth can be found in the scriptures, and all prophesy proves itself true when it is from God.
    Can you help me here? I have never understood the time link. How does seven weeks of years come to 483?

  7. Hi Brenda, Actually, this is the subject of two posts, from now. Should we follow the lunar year or solar year?

    As you probably know, there are a

    Week of Days (7 Days),
    Week of Weeks (7 Weeks),
    Week of Months (7 Months),
    Week of Years (7 Years),
    Week of Decades (70 Years),
    Week of Eons (7000 Years).

    In our case, the prophesy entails a Week of Years. As you said, 483 years. 69 x 7 = 483. 69 weeks until the Meshiach Nagai, (Messiah the King). The 70th week has yet to play out.

    If you remember, the Jewish calendar uses a 360 day year. Therefore, 69 weeks of 360 day years totals 173,880 days. In contast, Gabriel told Daniel that the time, between the commandment, to rebuild Jerusalem, until the Messiah the King, would be 173,880 days.

    The commandment, to restore and build Jerusalem, was given by Artaxerxes Longimanus, on March 14, 445 B.C. It's important to remember that the prophecy emphasized the streets and the wall, in order to avoid confusion.

    Now, if we add 173,880 days, to March 14, 445 B.C. and correct for leap years, we arrive at April 6, 32 A.D., the day that historians and theologians mark, as the 10th of Nisan, on the Jewish calendar, the Day of Y'shua's Triumphal Entry and the first time that he actually embraced being called the Messiah.

  8. Thank you Keith,
    I have not been able to spend much time on the blogs over the past week. I will study answer more closely over the next few days.
    God bless you and yours.

  9. Actually Keith is probably that old.

  10. Funny Man, Tim. Funny Man. You not too far behind me.

  11. You are welcome, Brenda. I hope all is well with you and the family. May God Bless you and yours, too.
