Wesley's Notes for Daniel 7:25


7:25 Until a time and times - The numbers of Daniel and John seem to agree. Daniel was certainly prophetical in these things, and his prophecy reacheth to the end of times, even of antichrist's reign.


Discussion for Daniel 7:25

  • I have always attended church on Sunday, never thought to observe the Sabbath Day which is a commandment of God. However, my faith and trust Have grown more and more and the Holy Spirit lead me into all truth. When I started reading Revelations then I received the truth about the Sabbath Day. I have attended Life church for 22 yrs. Never taught about what day to worship to keep the Sabbath. Now I do not want to attend the church because they worship on Sunday what should I do in between looking for another church who worship on Saturday? Since Saturday was changed to Sunday through man 's law and not of God because God does not change.
  • The verse is referring to the change of God 's law, especially the Law that deals with time and that is the 4th commandment. Sadly the majority doesn 't want to see this
  • Micha\'el for verse 25
    Times feast days shabbat Law Torah aka Ten commandments This is a prophetic vision predicting how constatine and the councile of nicea would replace jewish holy days with paganized christian holidays and overide the ten commandments
  • Surfer Christian for verse 25
    Sounds like an individual or waxing evil Empire that does the following: denies the (triune) God, persecutes God's Kingdom on Earth (the church), changes calendars to honor something other than the birth of out Lord Jesus Christ, and replaces the respective laws of nations that submit to his rule with a "new" law. The reign of this evil individual or kingdom will be terrible but finite.

    In the context of current events, I would say that Islam and the Mahdi fit this the best. Anno Domini is changed to the Common Era, Democracies with religious freedom yield to Sharia Law, and one modern nation after another submit to the Caliphate. These are examples of this prophecy enfolding in our own time, before our very eyes. God Bless.
