Wesley's Notes for Daniel 9:27


9:27 He shall confirm - Christ confirmed the new covenant, By the testimony of angels, of John baptist, of the wise men, of the saints then living, of Moses and Elias. By his preaching. By signs and wonders. By his holy life. By his resurrection and ascension. By his death and blood shedding. Shall cause the sacrifice to cease - All the Jewish rites, and Levitical worship. By his death he abrogated, and put an end to this laborious service, for ever. And that determined - That spirit of slumber, which God has determined to pour on the desolate nation, 'till the time draws near, when all Israel shall be saved.

    Go to united nations site and research. May the LORD JESUS CHRIST bless us with His Spirit, with hearts of repentance and forgiveness of our sins. LORD, save us from all manner of evil. Amen
  • 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.
