Dan 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, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
It is said that the interpretation of this passage definitely colors all other prophetic views. The truth hidden in this passage will start the process of unraveling the deception in prophecy teaching. Most teachers of Christianity falsely claim that this verse is in reference to the anti Christ making a covenant with Israel for seven years. Nothing could be further from the truth.
From the command to rebuild Jerusalem until Christ is a period of sixty nine weeks of years. The emphasis in this verse is on Jesus Christ (Dan 9:25).
And after this period of time, Messiah shall be cut off. The emphasis in this verse is also on Christ Jesus (Dan 9:26).
Likewise in Dan 9:27, the emphasis is still on Jesus. Christ will confirm the covenant with many.
The words he shall, are added by the translator twice. What is being described in the first part of this passage is the confirming or establishment of a covenant with many for one week. This means that the emphasis is on confirming the covenant, and the confirmation may be confirmed by multiple sources.
The first half of the seventieth week of Daniel was fulfilled in Christ. His ministry was for three and one half years. The promise that Christ would confirm the covenant with many was fulfilled, primarily by the fact that He brought the New Covenant to many.
End time revelations are revealed by correctly understanding Dan 9:27.
Christ claimed that Jerusalem would become desolate and remain in that spiritual condition, until His return for the second gathering of His people.
Often times it is errantly taught that the Israel of 1948 represents the second gathering prophesized in scripture.
At the true second gathering, all the righteous in Christ will reign in a gloriously restored Jerusalem. No longer will Jerusalem be spiritually referred to as Sodom and Egypt, as it is during the Great Tribulation (Rev 11:8).
Christ was the one who caused the sacrifices and the oblations to cease, as he was the final sacrifice.
Heb 7:27Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
Heb 10:5-6 Wherefore when Christ cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
End time revelations are revealed through the Sacrificial Lamb. In the midst of the week, or after his three and a half year ministry, Christ sacrificed Himself for us.
Rev 11:3-7 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
A thousand two hundred and sixty days, is three and one half years. This is also the length of time that the two witnesses have to share their testimony during the tribulation period.
End time revelations are revealed through Christ who confirmed the covenant with many; part of this confirmation process will be accomplished through the two witnesses.
They are messengers of the covenant. Also it can be said that they witness of him, with the spirit of God.
Matt 18:16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks
Zech 4:11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?
Zech 4:14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
The seven candlesticks represent seven churches (Rev 1:20).
The two candlesticks mentioned in Rev 11:4, will indeed shine a bright light in an otherwise dark world that has lost its way, and it’s Love for Jesus?
Matt 5:13-16 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Rev 11:7-8 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness [come] by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
End time revelations are revealed by recognizing that those who reside in Israel today who are without Christ, defiantly are not the true Israel of God (Col 1:4-18).
The Father gave backsliding Israel a bill of divorcement and put her away as she played the whore with many false gods.
Judah was even more treacherous in her whoredoms, so she also was not considered the Israel of God (Jer 3:6-11).
Only Born again believers are the true Israel of God. End time revelations are revealed by recognizing that without His Spirit we can not have a true and lasting relationship with Christ Jesus.
At the time when Jesus was born, the physical kingdom of Israel was divorced from God. Christ came to Judaea, to present the New Covenant and thus fulfill what was written in the law and the prophets regarding Him.
Like Israel after the flesh that had rejected the Father, so too would most who resided in Judea reject the Lord and forfeit the right to be redeemed, or called the Israel of God (Jer 7:11; Math 21:13; Jer 7:11; John 1:9-14; Rev 2:9; Rev 3:9).
Anyone with Spiritual discernment in Christ knows that He declared the false house of Judah to be desolate, their house was declared desolate as was their religion (Math 23:38; Acts 26:5; Gal 1:13-14).
End time revelations are revealed in Christ who came to confirm the covenant with many. Those who continue in His covenant are indeed rightful Heirs of the Kingdom (Heb 8:6-10).
Eph 5:6-11 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth; Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Gen 12:1-3 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
This blessing was to Abraham, not modern day Israel! Mathew speaks of the generations that start with Abraham, continue through David and end with Christ. The blessings of Abraham come on all that have faith through Christ. End time revelations are revealed through the promises that were made to Abraham and his seed, which is Christ (Gal 3:14-16).
Keep in mind that neither Abraham, Isaac, Jacob nor his sons were of the tribe of Judah. They were not jewish, nor did they practice judaism. Furthermore even If those in Modern day Israel could prove a lineage from Jacob’s son Judah, which is highly unlikely, apart from Faith in Christ and adherence to His New Law, there is no blessing.
End time revelations are revealed as well, by understanding that according to Christ there is no difference between the Judeans or the Greeks. What is necessary to realize is that only those who are Born again are counted as the true believers, and the Israel of God.
1 Cor 10:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
End time revelations are revealed by understanding that the Old Testament Law has been replaced by the New Testament Covenant of Christ. As a result of the death and resurrection of Christ, true Spirit filled believers understand that they are not under the Old Testament Law.
Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
The Old Testament laws are fulfilled as they come to pass in the New Testament revelations.
Jer 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day [that] I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
The Old Testament Law of Moses, written on tablets of stone, was given unto Israel after the flesh. These people continuously rejected God the Father and served many strange gods, only a remnant sought Jehovah through faith.
Jer 31:33 But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
End time revelations are revealed by understanding that the second covenant which is the new the Law of Christ is written in the hearts of men, which is Israel after the Spirit. This passage refers to the whole house of Israel. All of mankind can now believe in Christ and serve Him in newness of Spirit through faith, hope and love.
Isa 51:7 Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart [is] my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of them.
End time revelations are revealed through the prophets like Isaiah that prophesized of the true followers of God. These people would know the new law of Christ and it would be written in their hearts and minds.
Isaiah 51:11Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.
End time revelations are revealed by understanding that the true Israel of god are those that Christ bought and paid for on the cross. Modern day Israel is a man made gathering of a people that for the most part despise Jesus. The second gathering of God’s Israel is a spiritual event dealing with a redeemed people. The word redeemed refers to our salvation when we are transformed at Christ’s second coming.
John 2:10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now
Jesus Christ has brought forth the good or new wine which is the new covenant last. The first wine which was the old covenant was not nearly as good. Also the first was fulfilled or completed by Christ on the Cross, and has vanished.
Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away
Gal 3:2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
The Old Testament Law was given unto the Hebrews with the commandments and ordinances that were to be received by faith. To attempt to keep these works or letters of the law without faith in God was unprofitable and dead.
End time revelations are revealed in Christ who came to gave the new law. But without the hearing of faith, the spirit that He sent would not be received.
It is the infilling of the spirit of Christ that allows us to understand His word. To operate in the flesh with self-righteousness is also unto dead works.
Heb 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.
The Old Testament law was a covenant unto the Hebrews; this law had Ten Commandments written on tablets of stone.
End time revelations are revealed by understanding that the New Testament is the covenant between Jesus and all who call upon His name.
This law is the Spirit of Christ unto life. Christ’s law has only Two main Commandments that are written on men’s hearts and in their minds (Heb 10:16; Math 22:37-39).
Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
Christ, on the cross abolished the law of commandments and the ordinances. As a result he made it possible for all to enter into the commonwealth of Israel.
Romans 8:2-4 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Today we not only have Jewish fables to contend with, but now we have Judeo-Christian ones as well. One that is quite outrageous is that the church will be raptured away, and yet many come to be saved through the 144,000 of the twelve tribes of Israel that are left behind. It is taught that these are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, to witness to the world, and that the Great Tribulation is a time for Israel to come to salvation, as all the Christians are raptured away.
End time revelations are revealed by the facts that prove this theory to also be false. Below we will present the relevant verses that refer to all those that are sealed.
Rev 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
All those in Christ are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. Below is a Strong’s breakdown of this verse. Also note that God does the sealing; so the words we have, can be ignored.
The correct meaning of the Greek word achri, is those (G 3739).
A possible translation then, is that the destruction is not to occur until those who are to be sealed are indeed sealed.
Saying , Hurt not the earth , neither the sea , nor the trees , till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads . Rev 7:3
Rev 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
The same word for seal that is used in reference to that of the Living God is also used in 2 Tim 2:19. The foundation of God stands solid having this seal; the Lord knows all those that are his people.
Rev 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
End time revelations are revealed in that there is nothing to suggest that the 144,000 who are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, are on earth or that they witness to anyone.
Rev 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
In this verse the 144,000 are not mentioned, but we know that there are believers in Christ that are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, and thus protected from the Fifth Trumpet Judgment (Rev 9:1-11).
End time revelations are revealed by understanding that all of God’s Elect are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. This occurs when we are baptized in the Spirit.
Becoming a Born again follower of the Lord Jesus, is also a reference to this gift given to His Chosen.
Rev 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.
Jesus, who is The Lamb of God, stands upon Mount Zion with the 144,000 that are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. With reference to this group here in this chapter, there are two possible scenarios;
Jesus is the vine and we are the branches, if we abide not in Christ we too will be broken off.
End time revelations are revealed by realizing that Christians can not expect to escape from the punishment delivered unto Israel after the flesh, if they also immerse themselves in self righteousness, iniquity and deceit. Israel after the Spirit does not allow the cares of this world, nor the deceitfulness of riches to suffocate the implanted Word of Jesus Christ (John 15:1-6; Gal 6:3-8; 13-16; Math 13:22-23).
End time revelations are revealed by accepting that Jesus is the vine and we are the branches. There is no other branch to be recognized, and the ridiculous teaching that modern day Israel is its own branch is simply ludicrous.
The deceivers seek to establish their own righteousness, although in vain. They also seek to draw away disciples after themselves through their vain words, which are destitute of any spiritual wealth. Because of this great idolatry, they indeed will invite the wrath of God on themselves and their followers (Rom 10:3; Eph 5:5-6; Acts 20:30).
There is a common denominator within many of these false teachings. Part of the answer to this spiritual depravity, is revealed in the verses below:
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Matt 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
Titus 1:10-11 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.
Titus 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
End time revelations are revealed by understanding that the scribes and Pharisees not only would not enter the kingdom themselves, but all that followed their wicked doctrines would be dammed as well. This same spiritual phenomenon still exists today.
Many still accept these seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. Neither they nor their teachers will enter the kingdom, as it is impossible to do so without the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. There is no other way to inherit the kingdom, and there is no branch that is not in Christ.
If one can understand the simple message of truth, that Jesus is the vine and we are the branches, the message in Romans chapter eleven is really not that difficult to understand.
End time revelations are revealed by understanding that Christ reveals Himself too many. Those that reject Him are destined to be destroyed for their unbelief. These were never considered to be His people.
All that did receive Christ were given the power to become the sons of God. This promise was given to all peoples (John 1:12; Rom 8:14; 1 John 23:1-2).
Jesus is the vine and we are the branches, and every branch that does not bear fruit is taken away. Just like it was when Christ came to those who claimed to be of the house of Judah, so too will it be at the end of this age (John 15:1-20).
End time revelations are revealed through those that will not confess that Christ has come in the flesh. Christ is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, and this tribe is a spiritual people. End time revelations are revealed as well by the faithful believers who accept Christ’s new covenant unto life. These are part of the body of Christ that are redeemed from sin and death (1 John 4:3; Rev 2:9, 3:9; Jer 23:6; Heb 7:14; Rev 5:5, 7:5).
So then, the statement that Jesus is the vine and we are the branches is also a new definition of the True Israel of God. Physical Israel does not represent a separate branch with a special or unique redemption plan; this notion is nowhere to be found in scripture. End time revelations are revealed by understanding that Jerusalem will not be considered Holy until Christ returns to destroy all that offend at the battle of Armageddon. After this battle He will restore the land and will bring the Elect to Jerusalem to reign with Him for 1000 years.
The statement, he as god sits in the Temple of god, is part of a verse that is one of the most misused and misunderstood in relationship to both Prophecy and the Christian Identity. End time revelations reveal the gross misrepresentation of this verse that is used to propagate the false theory of a jewish rebuilt temple in the last days.
There are actually two main verses used completely out of context to establish this false teaching.
2 Thess 2:3-4 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
The Elect of Christ are His temple and He resides in them, with His Holy Spirit.
There can never be another physical temple on earth made with hands, that Christ will dwell in without physically being present.
Acts 7:48-49 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?
The message hidden to most in 2 Thess 2:4, is as follows. If any one worships the man of sin or Satan as god, then the temple or dwelling place in us that is designed and set apart for God, is occupied by this imposter.
So the phrase” He as God sits in the Temple of God” is no longer a mystery. Remember Satan is the god of this world.
Satan imitating God, dwells in the place of God, showing himself that he is a god (1 Cor 3:16; 6:19; 2 Cor 6:16; Acts 7:48; 17:24; Rev 11:19).
Isaiah 65:9 And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there.
The Elect not only understand who they are in Christ, but they are the ones to whom the inheritance is promised to.
Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
He as God sits in the Temple of God, has a dualistic interpretation then.
There are two parts to this verse. Satan seeks to impersonate God, and the place where the Holy Spirit should dwell often is occupied by him.
1 Cor 3:16-17 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
Defiling the temple would be the act of opting out of Serving the Creator, Jesus Christ.
1 Cor 6:19-20 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
