  • Bee Peterson on Daniel 9
    In verse 23 shows that Jehovah God highly values his faithful older servants. Daniel was probably in his 90s here and Jehovah God referred to him as precious or very desirable. This is such a refreshing scripture because in our society older ones are not given the respect and honor they deserve. So we should work hard to have Jehovah's viewpoint of older ones and to express our affection for faithful older ones.
  • P T Jones on Daniel 9:27
    Daniel 9.26-27 tells us about our Lord's ministry and his crucification and prophecy about destruction of Israel and its sanctuary by Roman armies in 70 AD. Daniel 9.27 says he (Jesus) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week - (his gospel work )and in the midst of the week he (Jesus )shall cause the sacrifice and oblation(animal sacrifice) to cease - (by his sacrifice in the cross)and for over spreading of abominations he(Jesus) shall make it (animal sacrifice) desolate- Godforsaken- even until consummation and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate - the Israel nation.
  • JL on Daniel 9
    The first part of verse 26 and verse 27 could be linked together as they are both referring to Jesus Christ, whereas, the second part of verse 26 is referring to the people of the Roman prince namely Antiochus who destroyed Jerusalem and the temple and its people in 70 A.D.

    what does it means when the bible say sackcloth and ashes?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Daniel 9:1
    Sackcloth and ashes is extreme mourning and / or repentance. sackcloth was rough uncomfortable for clothing. Sitting in ashes was dirty and I suppose symbolic of being dirty and burn out? It is humility before the Lord

    2 Samuel 3:31 And David said to Joab, and to all the people that were with him, Rend your clothes, and gird you with sackcloth, and mourn before Abner. And king David himself followed the bier.

    Genesis 37:34 And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and mourned for his son many days.

    Nehemiah 9:1 Now in the twenty and fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, and with sackclothes, and earth upon them.

    Psalms 35:13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.

    Daniel 9:3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:

    In Psalms 23- what is the 'rod' and the 'staff' referred to in this Psalm? Gods Word? Gods Holy Spirit?
    What does it mean to 'dwell' in the house of The Lord? Is it practicing the presence of God always? To dwell???? How can I dwell in the house of The Lord as I do my every day chores? go to work? do my shopping etc
    Thank you for your help in clarifying these for me.
  • Lisa - in Reply on Daniel 9
    The rod? Have you heard a saying that goes "spare the rod, spoil the child" chastisement
    The staff? That was used as a comfort.. so to speak. Before the Bible was in existence
    To dwell in the house of the Lord?
    As a Christian, we are not perfect, we fall short daily, many times daily. We should live a Christian life, if ya know it's wrong, don't do it. Be ye a separate people. Do not be conformed to the world. Live your life as God was right there with you every second of the day. And pray ask for forgiveness when you mess up.. nobody can walk your walk but you. 😁
  • RODNEY BASCOMBE on Daniel 9
    Very powerful scripture
  • Obbie Beal on Daniel 9
    faithful Daniel (though a slave in a foreign country) holds a high office in government; he has not forgotten Jehovah /God; also this prayer of Daniel clearly teaches us in 2019 why GOD allowed HIS wrath on the promised-land. This prayer of Daniel is applicable to us because the whole world has repeated that day /then. So Being SAVED BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS is our only HOPE. The trial-date is set.

    Verses 1,2~Daniel was now an older man, but he was still a deep student of God's Word. We want to continue to read the Bible throughout all the days of our lives like Daniel did.
  • Harvey plunkett on Daniel 9
    Jesus is record twice to have commended the reading and understanding of Daniel. Matthew 24 and in mrk. This commendation would seem to imply daniel was, even in that era, open for intelligent understand of times relative to events in their order for sequence: "signs for the times."
  • A disciple on Daniel 9
    verse 27 - I think it is foolishness and irresponsible as a servant of the Lord to try to make up methods and formulas for deciphering things that are declared sealed by God. What things ARE revealed to us, are the things we should occupy ourselves in; for they are the things which we must give account for when the Master returns. As we grow in grace and are able to bear it, He will show us more.
  • A disciple on Daniel 9
    (Cont.) Yet there are multitudes of immature and misguided, who know nothing nor seem to have any clue to seek for, the kind of character that God WOULD INDEED RESPECT, in order to find knowledge. Daniel was confessing and repenting, and acknowledging the truth about himself and of all God's people; NOT seeking to be anything great! THEN did the LORD send to give him understanding of all things!
  • A disciple on Daniel 9
    While Daniel was speaking, confessing his sins and the sins of Israel; while he was confessing the righteousness of God and praying for His mercy and forgiveness; while Daniel was mortified and in a horror of grief because his people for all that they had suffered of punishment for their sins, still did not repent nor seek God at all! That's when the Angel was sent to give him understanding!
  • A disciple on Daniel 9
    False prophets seek their own glory, and have not heard the Lord's voice at all; but speak out of the worthless imagination of their own hearts. Should we then be afraid of them or their words? I suppose not! Everyone who has tried to say they know something which the Lord Himself said "It is not given for you to know!" is a liar seeking only for men to worship HIMSELF, and works against the LORD!
  • Yussuf Kay - in Reply on Daniel 9
    the same revelations that were sealed in Daniels times were later revealed to John in Revelation; and he is cautioned not to hide them-but to tell them to the Church of God.Christ refers to the same in Matthew 24:15,Paul talks of the same in 2Thessolonians2.They are understood by the books(Bible).Kindly stop misleading God's people please.Do intense bible study
  • BSP on Daniel 9
    Verse 2 shows how deep of a student Daniel was of God's written Word. We should strive to imitate his example.
  • Ann Hering on Daniel 9
    Israel's 4 Great Jubilee Redemption Cycles of 490 years are:
    (i) Birth of Abram to the Exodus
    (ii) The Exodus to the Dedication of Solomon’s Temple.
    (iii) The Dedication of Solomon’s Temple to the Decree to Restore Jerusalem by Artaxerxes (Ezra 7)
    (iv) Decree to Restore Jerusalem to the Death and Resurrection of Christ. (This is Daniel's 70 weeks.)
  • Ann Hering on Daniel 9
    The 70 Weeks of Daniel 9:24 are Israel's Babylon captivity to lay land fallow.

    The Threescore and Two Weeks (62x7weeks =434 years) of Daniel 9:25 is the 400 years of silence (between Malachi to Matthew) AND Jesus' 34 years on this Earth.

    Jesus has to serve 2 weeks total, 7 years for Leah (oldest) THEN for Rachel (younger) 7 years of Tribulation (Rachel's Weeping) the week of Daniel 9:27.

  • Jeff Mentzos on Daniel 9
    When Israel was freed from Babylon the prophet was given the future of his people until the kingdom. 70 weeks equals 490 years which 0f which 483 were finished upon Jesus' baptism and he ministered for 3 1/2 years when he went to heaven. There remains 3 1/2 years yet to be fulfilled which will be finished during the 7 trumps by the 144,000 He indwells in the Spirit.
  • Ann Hering on Daniel 9
    Question for Elijah Luthor! What is the 70 weeks of Daniel 9:24? Is this the 70 years Jerusalem was taken in captivity to Babylon?
  • A disciple on Daniel 9
    Elijah; very interesting information, but how useful for the simple? I too like to learn facts and history, but at a certain point you're gonna bore your audience a hole in the toe! We should use knowledge to expound and amplify spiritual knowledge that brings people to really know the Lord. All else seems to only want to glorify the one talking, because no one else is listening anymore. Write me!
  • Elijah Luthor on Daniel 9
    Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was crucified on April, Wednesday the 25th, A.D. 0031 [Julian-Augustan calendar system]. He resurrected on Saturday evening before sunset or dusk. The news of His resurrection was first learned about on Sunday morning. Forty (40) days later, the Messiah corporeally 'ascended' to Paradise in the Kingdom of Heaven on June, Thursday the 7th, A.D. 0031. Neato, huh?!
  • Denise Learned - in Reply on Daniel 9
    I agree!!
  • Yeshua's Crown on Daniel 9
    Please go on FB and see my Daniel's Real Seventy Weeks page.

    There was no 2000 year gap. It's 49 years at at time. God's weeks are 49 years long. Seventy Jubilee cycles. BC 1414 - AD 2016.

    This is over! Trump is the seventh king, short reign, Then Obama, the eighth, of the seven, will come back. He has gone into perdition!
  • Daniel on Daniel 9
    Why are you so naive? Why don't you ask to Daniel in person? He is reborn and alive. Daniel 12:13
  • Oregonanabaptist.com on Daniel 9
    70 weeks have been fulfilled. "He" in the 27th verse is the Messiah. This prophecy and vision is about the Messiah, and the time determined upon Daniel's people, City and Temple. After He was cut off, the covenant kept being confirmed by apostles and disciples by the Spirit of Christ to the circumcision until Acts 7. Romans 15:8 Galatians 3:17 Malachi 3:1, Micah 7:19-20, Luke 1:68-74, Acts 7.
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife on Daniel 9
    Close. 483 yrs from Artaxerxes command. This prophecy tells can the exact yr Jesus began ministry, cut off mid week (crucified) and God giving up on the Jews, giving it over to the Gentiles. The stoning of Stephen at end of last week. It all started in 457 BC. 27 ad Christ announced. Killed 31 ad, Steph stoned 34 ad. Not an anti-Christ, it's a system that's been around since Jesus left. Rome
  • Jim on Daniel 9
    was it 483 years from the time of the temple's rebuilding under Cyrus till

    Jesus rode on the donkey into the temple, claiming to be the Messiah? Therefore the last week or seven years is from the time the Anti-Christ commits the Abomination of Desolation which ends in the victorious return of our Lord?
