Decoding Daniel

“A Future Fulfillment of Daniel 12”

This exegetical exposition is designed to explore and examine several chapters in the
book of Daniel that unveils a future application for the prophetic periods of Daniel the
twelfth chapter. This is not to determine a future date for the coming of Christ, the Bible
specifically says that no man knows the day or hour of Jesus return (Matthew 24:36).
I. Each of the following verses contained in Daniel chapter 7, 8, and 9 reveal a pattern of
prophetic time continuum, verses that highlight the beginning of the judgment that
unfold and develop to the end of the judgment.
a. Daniel 7:10-11
i. Beginning: Daniel 7:10 “A fiery stream issued and came forth from
before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand
times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books
were opened.”
ii. Ending: Daniel 7:11 “…I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his
body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.”
b. Daniel 7:21-22
i. Beginning: Daniel 7:21 “I beheld, and the same horn made war with the
saints, and prevailed against them;” (1798 only 46 years before the
antitypical day of atonement; October 22, 1844)
ii. Ending: Daniel 7:22 “Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was
given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints
possessed the kingdom.”
c. Daniel 7:25-26
i. Beginning: Daniel 7:25 “And he shall speak great words against the most
High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change
times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and
times and the dividing of time.”
ii. Ending: Daniel 7:26 “But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away
his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.”

II. Daniel 8. This chapter outlines the activities of progressive prophetic fulfillment. This
chapter like chapter 2 of Daniel expounds on the principle of repetition and enlargement.
The vision of this chapter however begins with the Medo/Persian kingdom and ends with
the little horn. Verses 1 through 14 describes Daniel in vision. Verses 15 to the end of
the chapter begin to explain or interpret some of the details unveiled in verses 1-14. This
chapter outlines the details of a vision that is described in two phases. The Hebrew
delineates these two phases of the vision referring to them as the (chazown) ‫ ָחזוֹן‬and the
(mareh) ‫ַמְרֶאה‬.i The chazown is that portion of the vision that has the prophetic time line
(490 = 70x7 or the 70 weeks), while the mareh contains the portion known as the (2300
day/year). ii

1
a. Daniel 8:12, 25

i. Beginning: Daniel 8:12 “And an host was given him against the daily
sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the
ground; and it practiced, and prospered.”

ii. Ending: Daniel 8:25 “And through his policy also he shall cause craft to
prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by
peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of
princes; but he shall be broken without hand.”

III. Following the Pattern of Daniel 9:26,27: In Daniel 7:10,11; 21-22, 25-26, Daniel 8:12,
25, the Bible clearly shows a pattern of beginning and ending; the beginning of the
judgment and the close of the judgment, the little horn’s display of power and its demise
and destruction. This chapter gives further insight and enlargement of the pattern
revealed in the previous chapters (7 & 8). Like the previous chapters, chapter 9 repeats
the idea of prophetic time continuum; beginning and ending of prophetic activity.

a. Daniel 9:26, 27
i. Beginning: Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah
be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come
shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a
flood... (the destruction of the city and sanctuary mentioned here is a
reference to A.D. 70 – SDABC p. 854)

ii. Ending: Daniel 9:26 “…and unto the end of the war desolations are
determined.” (The Hebrew word used for determined is (charats) ‫ָחַרץ‬
- A Niphal participle)iii

iii. Beginning: Daniel 9:27 “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for
one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the
oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make
it desolate…

iv. Ending: Daniel 9:27 ”…even until the consummation, and that
determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”

IV. Prophetic Template: This section of the study highlights a template that is often
revealed in the books of Daniel and Revelation. Here is the threefold pattern;

a. Sanctuary Cast Down: Daniel 8:11 “Yea, he magnified himself even to the
prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of
his sanctuary was cast down.” The Hebrew word used for sanctuary in this verse
is (miqdash) ‫ִמְקָדּשׁ‬.iv This word is most often used for a literal physical structure;
ie. temple, tabernacle, holy place, sacred place, Ezekiel’s temple etc. In this verse
it is speaking of a time when the little horn power brought destruction upon a

2
literal sanctuary. Most likely this is referring to the destruction of the temple in
A.D. 70. This of course represents Rome in its pagan state, or otherwise known as
imperial Rome.
b. Truth Cast Down: Daniel 8:12 “And a host was given him against the daily
sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and
it practised, and prospered.” In this verse the daily is taken away by the truth
being cast to the ground. This verse is most likely representative of the time in
earth’s history when God’s word (the truth) was kept out of the hands of the
common citizen and was expected to be interpreted by the professional clergy.
This time period is known as the Dark Ages; 538 A.D. – 1798 A.D.
c. Sanctuary & the Host: Daniel 8:13 “Then I heard one saint speaking, and
another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, “How long shall be the
vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give
both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?” In this verse the daily is
also taken away and the transgression of desolation is committed. However, the
daily is taken away by casting the sanctuary and the host to the ground. While the
verse does not explicitly say that these two entities were cast to the ground we
know that they were because they were trampled underfoot. The only way they
could be trampled underfoot is to be thrown to the ground! The Hebrew word here
used for sanctuary however, is not miqdash but (qodesh) ‫ק ֶֹדשׁ‬.v The word qodesh
is used to describe that which is holy, or set apart, separate, or sanctified. Qodesh
is that which characterizes God, a place or thing; ie. Holy Sabbath, Holy
Sanctuary in heaven etc. The recapitulation of aspects of the vision in Daniel
8:13 appears to indicate that in this text qodesh refers to the celestial sanctuary.vi
This passage of scripture seems to highlight more specifically a time when the
little horn rises to action after 1798 during a time when God’s heavenly sanctuary
is being polluted by the actions of the little horn; some time subsequent to the
start of 1844. Why 1844, because 1844 is the time represented by Christ ministry
in the Holy of Holies. This seems to characterize a time in the future when Papal
Rome revives from its deadly wound and takes authority against the heavenly
sanctuary by imposing its dogma’s by enforcing a national and a universal Sunday
law that eventually leads to the mark of the beast. This will follow with
persecution and threats of death and imprisonment.

V. The 70-week prophecy of Daniel 9:24 is a “type” that has its “anti-type” fulfilment that
occurs in our day and time. Here is the evidence of the 70-week prophecy having a
modern-day application:

# 70 Week Type 70 Week Modern; Anti-type


1. Literal Sanctuary finishes its work; Heavenly Sanctuary finishes its work
Daniel 9:27, Matthew 27:51 Daniel 8:13, Daniel 12:1
2. Sacrifices Cease: Daniel 9:27, Mark Daily Sacrifices Cease: Daniel 8:13
15:38
3. Sacrifices cease in the middle of the Daily Sacrifice ceases in the middle of
week {literal years} the week (seven literal years) Daniel
Daniel 9:27 8:13, 9:26

4. Christ persecuted by Rome; Daniel God’s people persecuted by Rome:
9:26 Daniel 8:24
5. Christ persecution came at an God’s people receive persecution at an
appointed time; Daniel 9:26 appointed time Daniel 8:19; Daniel
12:7vii When it came time for Daniel to
understand the vision (chazown) the
angel drew nearf/ to tell Daniel the
interpretation. In verse 17 Daniel is told
when the vision (chazown) would take
place; “at the time of the end.” The
Hebrew word that is used for “end” is
(qets) which means end, at the end of
time!viii And to be double sure of what
time Daniel is referring to, verse 19
gives the specifics. In verse 19 Daniel
is told exactly when the end shall be.
The end occurs at the last end of the
indignation! That foredetermined time
of indignation is what verse 19 refers to
as the “appointed” time. The Hebrew
word that is used for appointed is the
word “mow’ed.” Can the appointed
time be located and identified? Yes! The
words that are used for time and times
(Daniel 12:7) is the Hebrew word
mow’ed, mow’edeem ‫ מוֵֹעד ֽמ ֹוֲעִדים‬the
exact word that is used for “appointed”
in Daniel 8:19! “And he said, Behold, I
will make thee know what shall be in
the last end of the indignation: for at the
time appointed the end shall be. Daniel
8:19” In summary, based upon the
aforementioned evidence the 70-week
prophecy (chozown) leads up to the 3 ½
years located at the end of time.

6. Vision of 2300 Days lead to the end – Vision of the Chazown leads to the end
Daniel 8:14 - Daniel 8:17
7. Christ suffered the wrath (indignation) World suffers the wrath (indignation) of
of God on the cross. Isaiah 53:8, John God; Daniel 8:19, Isaiah 26:20-21
3:16
8. Close of Probation for Israel at the end Close of Probation for Spiritual Israel
of a 3 ½ year period of time (AD 34); at the end of 3 ½ year period of time;
Daniel 9:24 Daniel 12:1, 6-7.

VI. Below is to show how each of the points of fulfillment of the 70 week prophecy as
outlined in Daniel 9:24 have corresponding points of fulfilment in its modern day
application. Daniel 9:24 “Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy
holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make
reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the
vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.”

Type: Anti-type
Scripture: Daniel 9:24 Scripture: Daniel 12:1-13, Daniel 8:13
Finish Transgression: This points Finish Transgression: The future of God’s people
to Christ paying the price to cannot be settled until the blasphemous and devious
redeem us of our transgressions on acts of the little horn are laid to rest. Hence God
Calvary (Isaiah 53:5, 8, 12). must bring an end to the defiling work of the Papacy.
Thus, God will evoke judgment upon the revived
Papacy once she has filled her cup of iniquity.
Daniel 8:13 “…How long shall be the vision
(chazown) concerning the daily sacrifice, and the
transgression of desolation, to give both the
sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?” The
Hebrew word that is used in Daniel 8:13 for
transgression is the word “pesha.”ix It is the same
word used here in Daniel 9:24!

End of Sins: Jesus was made an End of Sin: Scripture declares that Jesus confirmed
offering for the sins of humanity the covenant by being a light to the gentiles (Isaiah
(Isaiah 53:10, Eph. 1:7, Colossian 42:6). But that very same mission and mandate is
1:14). extended to the people of God (Isaiah 49:6). Isaiah
49:6 “And he said, It is a light thing that thou
shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of
Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will
also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou
mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.”
Notice those who are a part of the end time message
are those who are a light to the Gentiles. They will
be responsible for raising up and restoring the tribe of
Jacob. How will this happen? The answer is found
in Romans 11:26-27, “And so all Israel shall be
saved: as it is written, there shall come out of Sion
the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from
Jacob: 27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I
shall take away their sins.” According to this verse
those who are alive during the time of Jacobs trouble
and endure to the very end, will have lived fully unto
Christ and He will give them victory by taking away
their sin!

5
Make Reconciliation for Iniquity Make Reconciliation for Iniquity (in modern
(In Christ time): Jesus paid the time): The Hebrew word that is used here for
price with His own life in order for reconciliation is the word kaphar. x This word is
us to receive reconciliation from generally translated; “to make atonement.” (SDABC
iniquity (Romans 5:10, 2 vol. 4 p. 852). Once a year on the day of atonement,
Corinthians 5:19). the high priest would consecrate the sanctuary by
making atonement upon the golden altar of incense.
(Leviticus 16:15-17, Exodus 30:10). In Exodus 30:10
the word is used twice; Exodus 30:10 “And Aaron
shall make an atonement (kephar) upon the horns of
it once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of
atonements: once in the year shall he make
atonement (Kephar) upon it throughout your
generations: it is most holy unto the Lord.” In the
same manner that this act of reconciliation was
initiated on behalf of the congregants during the Old
Testament, so likewise at the end of the chazown God
will have reconciled His people (Zechariah 3:1-4).
Zechariah 3 is a portrayal of the judgment of the
living. Joshua the High Priest is a symbol of
Jerusalem (a metaphor for God’s people) [Zechariah
3:2]. He stands before God as Satan the accuser seeks
to discredit Joshua. God looks at his life and
absolves him of his sin and causes his iniquity to pass
from him! So likewise, the people of God who are
faithful to the end will in like manner be pronounce
justified acquitted of all sin and iniquity!
“Zechariah’s vision of Joshua and the Angel applies
with peculiar force to the experience of God’s people
in the closing scenes of the great day of atonement.
The remnant church will then be brought into great
trial and distress. Those who keep the
commandments of God and the faith of Jesus will
feel the ire of the dragon and his hosts. Satan
numbers the world as his subjects; he has gained
control even of many professing Christians. But here
is a little company who are resisting his supremacy.
If he could blot them from the earth, his triumph
would be complete. As he influenced the heathen
nations to destroy Israel, so in the near future he will
stir up the wicked powers of earth to destroy the
people of God. Men will be required to render
obedience to human edicts in violation of the divine
law. “– {PK 587.2}

Bring in Everlasting Bring in Everlasting Righteousness: Daniel 12
Righteousness: During the course provides insight that reveals the forthcoming age of
of His ministry Jesus brought in everlasting righteousness that will be ushered in by
righteousness by first being the faithful remnant people of God. The Hebrew
baptized. Matthew 3:14-15 “But word for everlasting is the word owlam ‫עוָֹלם‬, In
John forbad him, saying, I have Daniel 12:3 we see that God’s people will bring in
need to be baptized of thee, and the everlasting righteousness that is spoken of in
comest thou to me? 15 And Jesus Daniel 9:24. Daniel 12:3 “And they that be wise
answering said unto him, Suffer it shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and
to be so now: for thus it becometh they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for
us to fulfil all righteousness. Then ever and ever (owlam).”xi
he suffered him.” Secondly, Jesus
brought in righteousness by being
crucified (Romans 1:16 -17).

Seal Up the Vision and Seal Up the Vision and Prophecy: In the last days
Prophecy: The word rendered for God’s people will also “confirm” or “ratify” the
prophecy is nabiy ‫ָנִביא‬.xii This vision. As mentioned previously the vision
word literally means prophet or (chazown) would have its fulfillment in the “end.”
mouthpiece for God. “Here The Hebrew word that is used for “seal” is the word
evidently not in the sense of chatham ‫ָחַתם‬. This same word chatham is found in
“shutting up,” but of “confirming,” Daniel 12:4, 9. Daniel 12:4 “But thou, O Daniel, shut
or “ratifying” (SDABC vol. 4 up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of
p.852). In other words Jesus the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge
would fulfill all of the details shall be increased. 9 And he said, Go thy way,
related to the fulfillment of the Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed
prophecy. (chatham) “till the time of the end.” In other words,
Daniel was told that the events outlined in chapter 12
of Daniel would reach its fruition and fulfillment in
the time of the end! All the events that are
characterized throughout the chapter would be
“confirmed” or “ratified”.

Anoint the Most Holy: During Anoint the Most Holy (In the Near Future):
the course of His ministry Jesus Holy of Holies: The words used for “most holy”
was anointed with the Holy Ghost here are two words, qodesh, qodeshem ‫ק ֶֹדשׁ ָֽקָדשׁם‬. xiii
and with power (Acts 10:38, This exact phrase is used in Exodus 30:10. “And
Psalms 45:7). The time that Jesus Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it

30:10.” This ceremonial practice initiated by the
High Priest was a way of “anointing” the tabernacle

once a year on the day of atonement. In the last days
God will also do his mighty work of atonement on
behalf of those who gain the victory over Satan and
the Little Horn (Revelation 7:14; 12:11; 15:2).

VII. The commentary below is a summary of the “type” and “antitype” descriptions,
that are found in Daniel 9:26 &27.
Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for
himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the
sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war
desolations are determined. 27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one
week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease,
and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the
consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
a. There are two perspectives to view from Daniel 9:26-27; one from the perspective
of the “type” as the traditional view relates to Christ, and the other is from the
perspective of the modern-day “anti-type” application of the Little Horn.
i. Christ: This is the traditional view of Christ being the Messiah who is cut
off. The cutting off refers to Christ dying the second death on behalf of
humanity, making salvation available for all who believe and repent of
their sins. From this perspective verse 26 can be understood from the
traditional interpretation. Then verse 27 continues with Christ being able
to confirm the covenant for one week and in the midst of the week he
would culminate the plan of salvation by allowing Himself to be the
ultimate sacrifice for sin.

A paraphrased explanation of verse 26 and 27 might be worded as such:


- Daniel 9:26 After the sixty-two weeks have come to fruition Christ
the Messiah will be put to death, but not for any sins he committed
but for the sins of humanity. The prince of darkness using Rome
as its destroyer (the same entity responsible for His death) will
come 40 years later and destroy Jerusalem and its temple. The city
and the temple will be overthrown with a flood of persecution
brought about by military enforcement. And unto the end of the
military onslaught desolations are determined.
- Daniel 9:27 Christ shall confirm the covenant for one week
through the work of the Holy Spirit operating in both He and His
disciples. After three and a half years Christ would die on the cross
causing the sacrificial system to cease. The work would be
continued by the disciples for another three and a half years. Christ
death would bring victory over sin, that would culminate in the
complete annihilation of the enemy who is Satan and the grave

8
even the extent of conquering the second death. His death had
been predetermined and prophesied from eternity past and was
poured out upon him at the appointed time.
ii. End time application of the Little Horn: This is the “anti-type”
perspective highlighting the modern-day application/viewpoint. Below is a
paraphrasing of Daniel 9:26-27.

- Daniel 9:26 At the end of earth’s history this same entity that put
Christ to death, comes now in the form of Papal Rome to destroy
“Jerusalem” (God’s people, Zachariah 3:2), and shall manifest
contempt against the heavenly sanctuary and blaspheme the
ministry of Christ. He shall overrun God’s people with floods of
persecution, and shall continue to bring desolation to the people of
God. But that same entity will be overrun, flooded by the justice of
God and shall receive divine retribution; desolation that has been
pre-determined by God to be fulfilled in its appointed time.

Daniel 9:27 Christ shall confirm the covenant with spiritual Israel
by allowing their enemy (Papal Rome) to prevail as it were, over
them. The heinous acts of Papal Rome will lead to the taking away
of the daily sacrifice, [a removal of the Sabbath from its lawful
place, Ezekiel 22:26; 23:38]; and because the Papacy shall commit
this transgression of abomination it will bring vile contempt even
against the Holy of Holies. For this cause, God will make Rome
desolate, and he shall do so at the consummation of the plan of
salvation, for the time of Rome’s ultimate fate and demise of total
desolation has been predetermined.

VIII. A brief explanation of Daniel 9:26-27: Daniel 9:26 clearly details the fact that the
sacrifice of the Messiah ends the sacrificial system. The death of Christ was executed by
the ruling power Rome. The latter portion of verse 26 describes the action taken by the
people of the prince – that they would destroy the city and the sanctuary. In other words,
the wishes of the ruling prince are carried out by the people themselves. The prince is the
one who is ultimately responsible for the fate of the sanctuary and the citizens of the city.
It is logical to assume that the end that comes by flood is not simply the final destruction
of Jerusalem in A.D. 70 but the final phase of persecution/destruction rendered by Rome
in the last days. The reason for this is that the verse already says that the people of the
prince shall DESTROY the city and the sanctuary. Then it continues by saying; “…THE
END THEREOF shall be with a flood.”
The Hebrew word that is used here for “sanctuary” is NOT the word miqdash; (a
literal physical structure) but the word qodesh (implying the heavenly sanctuary)! It is
highly probably that Daniel purposely used this word quodesh instead of miqdash in
order to help the reader to realize the twofold application of this occurrence. It seems
Daniel is making the reader to know that Rome’s act of destruction would happen in both
eras, the Pagan stage as defined by A.D. 70 as well as the revived Papal stage; to occur
during the imposition of the National Sunday Law. As we have come to understand the

9
pagan stage points to the literal destruction of the temple, while the Papal stage seems to
point to the desecration of the heavenly sanctuary.

Hence, we have a comparison of the “type” and “anti-type” of Daniel 9:26: This section
is to evaluate the two clauses found in Daniel 9:26; “…the end thereof with a flood, and
…desolations are determined.”

Type Anti-type
End with a Flood A.D. 70: A flood in End with a Flood (in modern time): In the
scripture is symbolic of the oppressive revived Papal stage not only are God’s people
persecution of the wicked (Psalms overwhelmed by a flood of persecution from the
18:4). The literal destruction of the Little Horn (Papal Rome) but Rome will be
sanctuary in A.D. 70 ended in a flood flooded with Divine retribution from the hand of
of Roman soldiers that overthrew the God (Daniel 8:25). “The ruin of Jerusalem was
city and temple. a symbol of the final ruin that shall overwhelm
the world. The prophecies that received a partial
fulfillment in the overthrow of Jerusalem have
a more direct application to the last days. We
are now standing on the threshold of great and
solemn events. A crisis is before us, such as the
world has never witnessed. And sweetly to us, as
to the first disciples, comes the assurance that
God’s kingdom ruleth over all. The program of
coming events is in the hands of our Maker.”xiv
(See Revelation 12:14-16)

Desolations Determined (in A.D. Desolations Determined (in modern time): In


70): In AD. 70 the temple and in the revived Papal stage the people of God will be
particular the inhabitants of Jerusalem greatly consumed by Papal Rome. “The
were overcome with the desolating persecutions of Protestants by Romanism, by
power of Rome. which the religion of Jesus Christ was almost
annihilated, will be more than rivaled when
Protestantism and popery are combined.” (LDE
147.2)
However, Papal Rome itself will reach its
consummation through the judgments of God
(Daniel 7:26).

IX. In this section a description of the “type” and “anti-type” of Daniel 9:27 will be revealed.
The latter portion of Daniel 9:27 says, “…and that determined shall be poured upon the
desolate. The word “desolate” (shamem) ‫שֵׁמם‬ ָ is “better rendered “desolater.”xv(4
SDABC vol. 4 p.855) The beginning clause in verse 27 starts with the word “and.” The

10
word “and” is a coordinating conjunction, which adjoins two related clauses together.
With this grammatical construct verse 26 can be understood as an antecedent to verse 27.
Since verse 26 ends with its focus on the actions carried out by the prince [through those
who follow him – the people] it can be inferred that the “he” of verse 27 [that confirms
the covenant] is referring to the antecedent in verse 26 – the prince. Verse 26 might be
better rendered as; “… the prince shall come and destroy the city and the sanctuary and
the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end thereof shall be with a flood, and
unto the end desolations are determined.” As a result of Rome’s onslaught of terrible
demise God will bring retributive judgment upon the Little Horn. Hence, “… and that
determined shall be poured upon the desolate (desolator). What is the event that has been
pre-determined to take place that will impact the desolator – desolation! (the seven last
plagues) The desolation of verse 26 has dual connotation, that which is initiated by Rome
and that which will be RENDERED TO Rome. Rome will receive its due justice from
God when the Lord pours out His judgments mingled without mercy upon the earth – the
seven last plagues! This would only make sense as we have discovered the progressive
beginning and ending patterns demonstrated in Daniel 7 & 8. Daniel 9:26-27 clearly
reveals that Rome not only destroys Jerusalem and the sanctuary but it also has its
determined time of destruction foreknown and executed by God at the appointed time.

Type Anti-type
Confirm the Covenant (through Confirm the Covenant (in modern time): In the
Christ and His disciples): Isaiah 42:6 same manner that Christ confirmed the covenant so
“I the Lord have called thee in also the remnant people of God living in the last
righteousness, and will hold thine hand, days shall confirm the covenant. The very same

Daniel 9:27 describes the advancement of
Rome and its oppressive power to impose
persecution upon God’s people in the last days.
This enforcement of dominant rule will far exceed
the onslaught of persecuting power demonstrated
by Rome in the dark ages. “The persecutions of

God will bring about a remnant that will come as a
result of allowing His judgments to manifest. The
text says that the consumption was “decreed.” The
Hebrew word for decreed is charats ‫ ָחַרץ‬This word
charats is found also in Daniel 11:36. “And the
king shall do according to his will; and he shall
exalt himself, and magnify himself above every
god, and shall speak marvellous things against the
God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation

According to this verse that which is determined (or
decreed; charats) is the indignation. The
indignation as noted earlier is the outpouring of the
seven last plagues (Isaiah 26:20-21).
