  • Fahim84 for verse 2
    can't help but think the number "70" has a numerical connection to this and to the traditional date of the Destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem AD 70 , among other things...
  • JP
    I agree with Matthew Henry about verses 24 to 27.. In the dispensational scheme, the person who will 'confirm the covenant with many for one week' is a future 'antichrist' character, who will exalt himself over all things good and holy in a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem. By incorporating this with passages from the book of Revelation, and others, they turn this precious Old Testament prophecy into a vile, twisted and blasphemous futurist vision! The He who is spoken of here is Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour, so obviously even I can understand it! Don't be taken in people, do your homework and be careful. Praise God, in Jesus' name!
  • Paul
    and this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached unto all nations then the end shall come.the 2nd triumphant entry of our lord is hinged on this not anything else.its upon us,how well we do the work in the fields that a while delays or speeds up the coming of the lord.
  • Emory l Smith II for verse 3
    I love this verse, it is pure inspiration for us believers. To know that if when we seek after Him, He hears us.
