Whose Covenant – the Christ’s or the Antichrist?

2/17

“And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week [sevens], but in the middle of the week [sevens] he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.” (Daniel 9:27)

This is the most misunderstood verse in the whole Bible!

An overwhelming majority of people interpret the twice-occurring “he” in English translations of the Bible as referring to the last Antichrist. In reality, considering this verse’s pretext and Jesus’ salvation on the Cross, we should clearly see this: the word “he” refers to “God” Himself in both cases!

Do not forget this: it is God who has sovereignty over all, not the evil one in the mid-air! Period.

Moreover, the original Hebrew text does not have the word “he” – rather only two verbs which describe two actions.

In the above verse, the original Hebrew verb for the phrase “make a firm covenant” is in the perfect tense; “put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering” is in the imperfect tense while “a complete destruction… is poured out on the one who makes desolate” is also in the imperfect tense.

Therefore, “for one week [seven],” i.e. within the Millennial Jubilee, the Lord Jesus had already made a firm covenant with many with His precious blood so that His salvation could be complete.

However, “in the middle of the week [seven],” these two events, putting “a stop to sacrifice and grain offering” and “a complete destruction… is poured out on the one who makes desolate,” not only happened in 70 A.D. when the Temple of Jerusalem was destroyed the second time (not built even today), but also continue to take place again and again in the history of mankind. Because the bodies of believers are assembled as God’s Temple, the cleansing of this New Temple becomes an unfinished and ongoing process until the Second Coming of the Lord.

In other words, the “middle of the week [seven]” does not have a fixed middle point. God has never stopped getting rid of the bad fruits grown out of a superficial religion and His battle with “the one who makes desolate” continues.

During the time of the Millennial Jubilee, whenever believers join the battle and stand on the Lord’s side, that is the beginning of your “middle of the seven” to follow the Lord.

Therefore, if you see that the day of Jesus’ resurrection was indeed the beginning of this last “one seven” – the Millennial Jubilee, and see that His second coming is the conclusion of this “one seven,” then all the so-called “difficult issues in the Bible” will be instantly solved.
