The Breaking of the Seven Year Covenant

Dani'el 9:27a and Isaiah 28:18

    Another event that occurs at the halfway point in the Great Tribulation is the breaking of the Seven Year Covenant that the antichrist made with the nation of Isra'el three and half years earlier (see Bz - The Signing of the Seven Year Covenant with the Antichrist). While Dani'el 9:27a presents the covenant that begins the Great Tribulation from man’s perspective, Isaiah 28:18 presents the same covenant from God’s perspective.

    He will confirm a covenant with many for one seven year period, the Great Tribulation. But in the middle of the seven, or three-and-a-half years, he will put an end to sacrifice and offering because of the abomination that causes desolation (Dani'el 9:27a).

    Then in Isaiah 28:17-22, the same results are found as in Dani'el 9:27. First, in Isaiah 28:17-18, the covenant will be broken and followed by the military invasions Isra'el had hoped to escape. I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line; hail will sweep away your refuge, the like, and water will overflow your hiding place. Your covenant with death will be annulled; your agreement with the grave will not stand. When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it.

    The second result is seen in Isaiah 28:19-20, sheer terror will fall upon the Jewish people. Isaiah 28:15 teaches that they entered the covenant because of security, but in Isaiah 28:19, there will be invasion, and in Isaiah 28:20, there will be a lack of preparedness both militarily and spiritually. As often as it comes it will carry you away; morning after morning, by day and by night, it will sweep through. The understanding of this message will bring sheer terror. The bed is too short to stretch out on, the blanket too narrow to wrap around you. Instead of security, they will have insecurity.
