Tribulation

ID #1039

Is there any specific scriptural references that relate the beginning of Daniels 70th week as the beginning of wrath or tribulation ?

No. Because the beginning of the 70th Week is not the beginning of the tribulation as popular belief suggests, The tribulation begins after the mid-point at the Abomination of Desolation when the Antichrist demands the worship of the world. Matthew 24 makes this clear...

Matt 24:9 (NIV) "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. 15 "So when you see standing in the holy place ´the abomination that causes desolation,' spoken of through the prophet Daniel--let the reader understand--

He starts out with "then" which points to a specific point in time. Then in verse 15 he says "so," which tells us how to know when that time is. And, he specifically points to the Abomination of Desolation which IS prophesied in Daniel to be in the middle of the 70th Week.
