The Decimation 3
Well, in “The Decimation 2”, I said we’d evaluate the absurdity of the pronoun “He” as the Beast in Daniel 9:27 so let’s get at it!
How do we know the Pronoun “He” in Daniel 9:27 – IS – “Jesus” AND NOT the Beast.
Well read on… proof will follow.
Believe it or not the entire Great Tribulation debacle has its foundation in this very question.
Here is what the Pre-Tribulation and Mid-Tribulation proponents teach:
And he (the Anti-Christ or Beast = BTW, the word Prince in verse 26 means: a noble man and or person of integrity) shall confirm (authenticate exceedingly) the covenant (an established and binding blood oath) with many (a great many, but not all) for one week (seven years), and in the midst of the week, (at the halfway point, three and a half years) he (the Beast) shall cause the sacrifice (sin offering) and oblation (meal offering) to cease (come to a permanent stop) (Daniel 9:27a)
Now does that sound right to you? WE don’t have to be Theologians to understand this do we? NO, we don’t!
Okay, check out a more accurate interpretation of Daniel 9:27a:
And he (Jesus, a noble man of integrity) shall confirm (authenticate exceedingly) the covenant (an established and binding blood oath) with many (a great many, but not all Matthew 7:13-14) for one week (seven years), and in the midst of the week, (halfway point, three and a half years (Jesus’ ministry spanned 3½ years) he shall cause the sacrifice (sin offering) and oblation (meal offering) to cease (come to a permanent stop) (Daniel 9:27a)
Compare the two divergent views.
Without digging one more inch… can you not already tell God’s truth within this Prophecy?
Bear in mind, when Jesus died on the cross the veil of the Temple ripped right down the middle exposing the Holy of Holies.
The exposure of the Most Holy Place caused every sacrifice and every Offering to come to a screeching halt! Coincidence – really?
Remember, Israel was right at the beginning of the Passover and they were preparing to offer hundreds of sacrifices and offerings. Coincidence again – really?
If you are searching for more proof than this you should check out our book, “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse.”
Chapter 7 includes subsections, “Daniel’s People of the Prince” and “He Shall Confirm a Covenant”; these two sections alone confirm the truth regarding whom the pronoun, “He” is actually referring.

Consider, God sent His Word so everyone could get the message.
I write this while knowing that God intentionally concealed a large portion of the End Times message. We know this because the Lord had the Angel Gabriel tell the Prophet Daniel to, “…shut up the words, and seal the book…” UNTIL “the Time of the End.” (Daniel 8:11-26 and Daniel 12:4-9) Let’s not forget Revelation 10:1-7 also. Another coincidence, right?
So I get it, Christendom could not fully understand the End-Times issue and Christ’s position in this verse until recently as we are NOW living in “The Time of the End”, the time of God’s revelation on this subject.
“Proof is in the pudding,” as they say!
Don’t know about you, but I can’t wait until, “The Decimation 4”.
Who knows what additional proofs are awaiting our perusal.
Until next time!
