If you’ve been seeing the other videos on the prophecies of Daniel before this, you’ll know that this is essentially the seminal video in the series. This video, based around the last verse in Daniel 9, is focused on the Old Testament verse that Jesus Himself referred to when He was asked about His return. For those familiar with Bible prophecy, this verse is somewhat like “The Rosetta Stone”, fitting together the many different pieces of the endtime picture and the future to come.
On a personal note, it’s been a joy to me that the Lord has made it so that I’ve been able to get this far in this series that these two videos on Daniel chapter 9 have been completed. I hope and pray this one will be a blessing to you and to all those who are seeking to understand. As Jesus said about this verse, “…whoever reads, let him understand” (Matthew 24:15b)
This is the first of two videos on Daniel chapter 9. It focuses on the parts of the “70 Weeks” prophecy in chapter 9, revealed by the angel Gabriel, which have already been fulfilled, focusing mainly on verses 24 to 26.
An incredibly specific 483 year length of time was revealed to Daniel that would pass between “the commandment to restore Jerusalem” and “Messiah the Prince”. Adding to that, the angel Gabriel told Daniel that “after… Messiah shall be cut off”, the city of Jerusalem and the Jewish Temple would again be destroyed again. This all came to pass precisely as this prophecy said it would, in the centuries to come.
In chapter 8, Daniel sees a vision of a goat defeating a ram, representing Greece’s defeat of the Persians that happened 200 years later. And the angel Gabriel tells Daniel more about “the little horn”, the Antichrist of the Endtime. Chapter 8 builds on what was revealed to Daniel in his vision of four beasts in chapter 7. It also prepares for the awesome truths to come in Daniel chapter 9.
