Discussion for Daniel 8:26

  • Today we are right in the midst of it. This is happening in God 's Temple. This whole vision is about God 's Church right now-The Last End. Daniel is trying to get to see the king of warfare going on behind the scenes.
  • V CORNELIUS for verse 26
    In the spiritual realm some thoughts are not ready to be revealed to men and women because of maturity of the spirit. The spirit will reveal it when it is time to speak, and then spiritually mature saints should receive the word; like being on milk and then ready for meat.
