Daniel 9:27 Blunder...

Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by Katy-follower, May 13, 2013.

  1. Daniel 9:26: "And after the sixty-two weeks
    Messiah (Jesus) shall be cut off, but not for Himself;
    And the people (Romans) of the prince who is to come
    Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary...."

    Yes, Messiah was cut off (fulfilled)
    The Romans then destroyed the temple (fulfilled)
    The future prince who is to come (not yet fulfilled) - it says the people who destroyed the temple (Romans) are of the prince to come, so we know the future prince is someone from the revived Roman empire.


    Daniel 9:27: "Then he (roman prince) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (7 yrs);
    But in the middle of the week (3.5 yrs)
    he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
    And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
    Even until the consummation, which is determined,
    Is poured out on the desolate.”

    Some try to claim this prince in verse 27 is Jesus, when clearly it's the future 'man of sin'. How can one associate the workings of Antichrist with Jesus? This is awful.

    Others have told me I'm incorrect and that this is actually referring to Jesus. I don't see it.
  2. You are correct Katy.

    The understnading of the "HE" which begins in verse 27 is crucial to the understnading of this prophecy in its fullfilment.

    The identification of "the ruler to come" of verse 26 with the "HE" of verse 27 show us that there is a future world leader coming. I am not this smart, I had to look this up, but in the normal laws of reference, a pronoun (He) refers back to the last preceding person mentioned. In this case it would then be......"the ruler who will come" of verse 26.......NOT the "Anointed One" of the earlier position of that verse.

    As in other problems in escatology, so much of the difficulty comes when we fail to take note of the particulars of said prophecy. Once it is understood that prophecy needs to be fulfilled literaly and completely, most of the problems disappear.
  3. You assume "the roman prince" and insert it into the verses....This is working the puzzle with an assumed solution.
  4. Allow me to put in the correct piece of the puzzle my brother and we will not have to assume.

    Daniel 9:27........
    "And he (ANTICHRIST) shall confirm the conenant with amny for one week; and in the midst of the week he shall cause the the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation and the determined shall be poured upon the desolate".

    The "HE" in verse 27 is the ANTICHRIST. Where he comes from and who he is is not known. Some will suggest that the personal pronoun in verse 27 refers to the Prince of Peace, the Lord Jesus but that is simply not true. The covenant here is for 7 weeks which is literally 7 years and the covenant of Christ is EVERLASTING!!!!

    Hebrews 13:20.......
    "Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shephard of the sheep, through the blood of the EVERLATING COVENANT"."

    By contrast, the Antichrist, the person who rides on a white horse in Rev. 6:2, will bring peace for 3 1/2 years and then according to the Word of God, NOT MY OPINION..............."in the midst of the week" will break that conenant!
