Jesus Christ taught us "Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him." - Luke 17:3-4. It was apparently from this teaching, that Peter got the idea that he only needed to forgive his brother seven times. So he went to the Lord, and asked Him about it, seeking to confirm his assumptions. Christ’s response to Peter is extremely complex. In fact, the true complexity of it has gone un-noticed by many Christians. When the Lord revealed it to me, I was amazed.
"Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven." - Matthew 18:21-22.
So was Jesus saying that Peter needed to forgive 490 times? After all, 7 x 70 = 490. Actually, Christ’s response is #POWERFUL. Jesus is all knowing and all seeing, and proves it again. His real message takes us all the way back to the Old Testament. The prophetic end times "Book of Daniel".
One of the most famous set of scriptures in all of the Holy Bible is Daniel 9:24-25. They are basically the keys to the end times sequence.
"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. 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." - Daniel 9:24-25
Now if you were to research Daniel 9:24-25 on the internet, you would find tons and TONS of facts, speculations, guessing and bold faced flat out-right lies about it’s meanings. However most people agree that "seventy weeks" actually means "seventy sevens". Why?..
Looking up the word "week" in Hebrew (which is what the Old Testament was written in), returns: "shabuwa", which means "seven".
Another words, the end of all things as we know it will occur in God’s timing of seventy times seven / 70 x 7.
#TRUTH 126--> When Jesus Christ told Peter that he needed to forgive seventy times seven, He was saying to Peter; be willing to forgive until the end of the world!
