He Shall Confirm a Covenant? 7

Series Conclusion

Daniel 9:27b

The three and a half years of Christ’s ministry established the “Acceptable Year of the Lord,” or the blessing component for the covenant, as represented in Daniel 9:27a. This was the first half of the seventieth week. The last half of the seventieth week, which is the curses or judgment component of the covenant, also called the “Day of Vengeance of our God,” is represented through Daniel 9:26b & 27b and will take place at the end of the Latter Days. Remember, Daniel 9:26 and 27 are split verses. Let us therefore take a look at the key words in Daniel 9:27b for the separation and punishment phase of the covenant, called the Great Consummation, which will take place soon.

“And for the overspreading of abominations He shall make it desolate, even until the Miry Clayconsummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate” (Daniel 9:27b KJV).

 

 

 

 

And for the overspreading” (H3671) kanaph, ka-naf’—this word’s imagery is similar to a mighty bird spreading its wings over its prey or offspring; it is also similar to thebird-of-prey cherubim as they spread their wings over the mercy seat on the Ark of the Covenant or a cloud front spreading over a landmass or mountain range.

 

“… of abomination” (H8251) shiqquwts, shik-kuts’ (from H8262) is a primitive root, meaning to count as filthy or detestable. Shiqquwts represents a detestable thing, such as an idol; an abomination; a loathed thing; an impure item, such as a defiled image or idol; or an item or object that represents something significantly immoral.

 

“… he shall make it desolate” (7761)—suwn, soom is a Chaldean word meaning to command or to give or to lay or to make, as in make a name, give regard, or make a set of something. He shall cause it to happen. He shall make it happen. It is to make something take place or happen.

“… even until the consummation” (*H3617)—kalah, kaw-law’ is a completion; the adverb completely, as in complete destruction; completely and altogether finished; to be consumed or utterly completed. A consumption was determined, the full or utter consumption; to make a full and absolute gathering and completion of all related aspects; the complete end of something; and to make a full or utter finish of something.

“… and that determined” (H2782)—charats, kha-rats’, is a prime root, meaning to point sharply, specifically appointed; meaning, literally to wound, to decide or establish definitely; to bestir self, to decide, or decree; to determine; to maim or disfigure; to move; or to determine something will be utterly concluded or accomplished.

Just a couple more and we’re through these definitions…

“…shall be poured”—nathak, naw-thak’ (5413) is a prime root, meaning to flow forth, literally or figuratively; by implication to liquefy; to drop; to gather; to gather together, as in to melt and then pour; or to pour forth or to pour out in order to liquefy or inundate them or an object.

 

“… upon the desolate”—shamem, shaw-mame’ (H8076, from H8074) means ruined, to make desolate. Shamem, shaw-mame (H8074) is a prime root, meaning to stun MotBintransitively to become desolate (i.e., to devastate or figuratively to stupefy, both usually done in a passive sense); to become destitute or the destitute; to destroy or destroy self; to lay, lie, or make waste; to lay waste; desolation has come upon those who have been or are becoming ruined; to cause oneself to be ruined; and the desolate.

Daniel 9:27b: Transposition

 1 And for the overspreading of abominations

Tower of Babel

Because the world is overflowing or overspreading with the detestable, it will soon reach its full level of wickedness (Daniel 8:23) as in a pitcher having reached the brim with liquid, overflowing.

 

 

 

2 Jesus shall command unbelievers to be judged

Jesus, the Word, law of God in the flesh, has ordered the people of the world, those who reject Christ’s propitiation to be cast into outer darkness.

 

3 even until the utter destruction is accomplishedouter-darkness

The destruction will continue until such time as it has been fulfilled or fully accomplished.

4 and the time having been determined or decided, set aside

The time and method has been firmly established and decided and set aside.

5 shall have the destruction flow upon, over

The destruction is required to inundate, as in to flood over or flow over completely.

6 those who are becoming ruined or have become ruined

These are the ones who have become enemies, who have been, are, or are in the process of being ruined.

Let the actual language guide your perceptions. Daniel’s word choices determine what Daniel was hoping to convey. The message in the Seventy Weeks of Daniel is both a forerunner to Christ’s covenant in the New Testament and the Great Consummation for the Latter Days. The Body of Christ should embrace this message while we are still on this side of the whirlwind.  We must understand what is coming while there is time.

 

Joel 2:30-32 ties in with this amazing concept.

And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, thatJerusalem whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

And Malachi 4:5-6:

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children,images8 and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

 

 

 

 

These two timeframes, the great AND {terrible or dreadful} Day of the Lord are the dividing points between the first half of Christ’s Covenant (Acceptable Year of the Lord) also known as Christ’s ministry and the second half of Christ’s Covenant also called, “The Day of Vengeance of our God” or The Terrible Day of the Lord (Isaiah 61:1-2).

It is not a coincidence scripture conveys these prophecies with such peculiar verbiage.

Once again it would be helpful to look at the “Day of the Lord” chart found in my book, “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse,” page 252.

God is so cool!  I love the complexities of God’s Word made Flesh!

I’m not sure if I need to write a conclusion to this series. It seems to me I’ve detailed each element well enough, but if you want one just let me know. 🙂

Lastly,

beast

The Beast, oooh scary!

There is no solid evidence which permits the pronoun “he” in Daniel 9:27 to be considered the “Beast;” therefore, without further adieu…

I proclaim the pronoun “he” in Daniel 9:27 relates exclusively to Jesus, the son of the living God who did and is confirming a covenant with humanity for one week or seven years out of the city of Jerusalem, through the Hebrew people in order to finish the transgression, make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity and to bring in everlasting righteousness.

I further attest the 7 weeks segment of the prophecy commenced after King Cyrus sent forth the commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem; that the reconstruction equaled 49 years of consolidated reconstruction of the city, Temple and the wall and that the entire period was analogous to troublous times.

We also know from the new revelation found in “This Side of the Whirlwind” that the first half of the Covenant took place during Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.  The second half of the Covenant will commence when the Restrainer (Jesus) is taken out of the way. The Great Consummation or second half of the Covenant will begin somewhere during the next eleven years in order to complete the judgment portion or “Day of Vengeance of our God” portion of the Covenant in accordance with Isaiah 61:1-2 and Luke 21:22 to name just a couple pertinent verses.

If these points were not enough, we also know the first half of the Covenant was fulfilled when the veil of the Temple was rent in two as Jesus was crucified on the cross in order to give His life so He could fulfill the first four edict found in Daniel 9:24 and save the Children of God. When the veil of the Temple ripped the sacrifice and offerings came to a screeching halt in fulfillment of the prophecy found in Daniel 9:27 “…and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease”. As the veil was rent the Savior was sacrificed for the sins of the would bring the sacrifice and offerings to a satisfying conclusion for all time.  Wow!  I know!

Come on people, what more do we need! Just kidding.

Who could not see the truth in these statements let alone in the entire series: “He Shall Confirm a Covenant? 1-7.”TSWW BK Cover

Well, I’m convinced! Aren’t You’ll?

Should you have ANY questions OR comments… Have a great One!
