Christ Revealed to Daniel That Satan’s Last Kingdom of Today
Would Be A Fierce Kingdom Like None Other
And That is Because Satan Who is the “Destroyer” Would
Devastate the WHOLE EARTH!!!
October 24, 2021
Daniel’s last 4 visions are recorded in Daniel Chapters 7-12. And these last 6 Chapters are the predictive section of this awesome Prophetic Book that predict these END-TIMES that we have been living in since the Ascension of Christ. But this awesome Book has turned out to be more than just a Treasure Trove of Apocalyptic Literature. For it paints a beautiful picture of an AWESOME man of God who lived out his commitment to Christ in very troubled times which all of us Christians who Love Christ and are devoted to Him as Daniel was can identify with living in these times today of GREAT TRIBULATION!!!
And that’s WHY it is indeed significant to us living in this Apocalypse Generation with the Return of Christ right on the Horizon now to understand that Daniel’s Prophetic Office coincided with the Jewish exile to Babylon – AND HERE’S WHY!!! Because the Babylonian Captivity of Daniel’s day FORESHADOWS the Great Tribulation of today. For Christ had John picture Satan’s Kingdom in the equally AWESOME PROPHETIC BOOK OF REVELATION as a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the End-Time Apostate Church’s CAPTIVITY today to WORLDLINESS!!!
And as I wrote in my last Commentary – the #1 SIGN that Christ gives us “Elect” that His 2nd Coming is NEAR -- is SPIRITUAL DECLENSION. And CLEARLY -- this time of Apostasy TODAY is FORESHADOWED by the SPIRITUAL DECLENSION that was occurring in Daniel and Ezekiel’s Day. And it was because of their unfaithfulness to Christ that the Old Testament Congregation was held in slavery for 70 years of Babylonian Captivity as Judgment from God for their “falling away” from the faith.
AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!!
For “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology explicitly prophesies that Christ will LOOSE SATAN as His instrument of Judgment before His 2nd Coming as we read in both Daniel and John’s visions. And the LOOSING of Satan has now caused this prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION for us “Elect” because Satan is now ruling the WHOLE WORLD. And just like Daniel and Ezekiel – Christ’s TRUE PROPHETS of today are having to co-exist now with those in League with Satan who are ruling the WHOLE WORLD with him as the Elites are today. And this prophesy that Christ had Jeremiah announce applies to today when we read:
“Go and tell Hananiah, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord: “You have broken the yokes of wood, but you have made in their place yokes of iron.” For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “I have put a yoke of iron on the neck of ALL these Nations, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon; and they shall serve him. ( and rest assured that he was a “type” of Satan which the WHOLE WORLD is serving TODAY because of our unfaithfulness to Christ!!!)
CLEARLY -- Christ prophesied that in this time of Great Tribulation that many will fall away from THE TRUTH of His True Gospel and be DECEIVED by False Gospels and Religions. Not to mention that His LOOSING OF SATAN to DECEIVE THE NATIONS and his pouring out the 1st 2 WOES of Spiritual Blindness on the Kingdom of Satan would result in MOST of the World NOT even knowing that we are IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION -- let alone that we are TODAY fighting the FINAL Spiritual Battle which means that we are nearing THE VERY END OF THIS WORLD!!!
And that’s WHY for those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST that Christ placed an EXTRAORDINARY EMPHASIS on the importance of us knowing that we are IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION. For we are His Christian Army that will help Him DEFEAT SATAN by EXPOSING his Evil Deeds and the Evil Deeds of those in League with SATAN. And that’s WHY He said that when we saw “The Abomination of Desolation” which is Satan being LOOSED by Him to rule the WHOLE WORLD – that we needed to FIGHT against Satan’s LIES more than ever before!!!
And while Man’s Eschatology has DECEIVED so much of Christendom into thinking that THE CHURCH will not have to go through the Great Tribulation – “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teaches that EVERYONE on Earth will be in this Final Spiritual Battle because it takes place between the Kingdom of Satan and the Kingdom of Christ. And even though Dispensationalists have promoted the Eschatology that the 2 BEASTS of Revelation Chapter 13 represent “THE ANTICHRIST” and “THE FALSE PROPHET” that will come to power AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture of the Church – this is just NOT what Daniel and John saw in their visions of these End-Times AT ALL – REALLY!!! This False Eschatology may have sold MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of Prophecy Books – but it couldn’t be FARTHER from “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology!!!
For in the Book of Revelation -- especially in Chapters 12 –13 and 17 – Satan’s rule depicted by the Statue of SATAN in King Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream which Christ interpreted to Daniel – is portrayed as A BEAST WITH 7 HEADS and 10 HORNS. And of course this is a HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE that portrays the 7 Epoch rules of SATAN since the Fall in the Garden of Eden with the last 4 Kingdoms depicted in the Statue of SATAN in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream as being Babylon – Persia – Greece – and now the United Nations!!! This much we learn from Daniel Chapters 2 and 7. And Daniel was shown that the “10 horns” which correspond to the “10 toes” of the Statue of SATAN in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream represent the “Kings of the Earth” along with the Political Religious Leaders of this 21st Century now that Christ has LOOSED SATAN to rule over them -- as he now has rule of the WHOLE WORLD during his Final rule of this World.
CLEARLY – Daniel was made to understand that Satan will rise as “the little horn” or “THE ANTICHRIST” to rule in the End-Time Church which is also confirmed by the 7 visions given to John of this Final 4th Kingdom rule of Satan taking place NOW. Daniel saw that this Final Kingdom of Satan was depicted as having legs of iron with feet partly of iron and partly of clay as we read in Daniel 2:40-44. And the “iron” which depicts the 200 MILLION DEMONS LOOSED along with SATAN that John later saw in his 3rd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 9 – was interpreted to Daniel to mean that the “clay” stands for humans who would be mixing with DEMONS which is the “iron.” And this “iron” mixing with “clay” represents how Satan and his Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS will work through the 2/3 UNSAVED REMNANT of this World to foster the great WICKEDNESS AND LAWLESSNESS that is going on now in this GREAT TRIBULATION!!!
In other words – just as we read in Mark 10:42 Satan is working through the “Great ones” which we call The Elites today who are the World’s rulers and powerful men through whom SATAN is now escalating GREAT WICKEDNESS. And because their rule is especially “typified” by the 10 toes of the Statue of SATAN of the feet that are “partly of iron and partly of clay” – Christ wanted to convey that Satan’s Final 4th Kingdom will be partly strong and partly BROKEN because Christ HIMSELF will be bringing this Final Kingdom of Satan down to ruins before FINALLY JUDGING IT on the LAST DAY!!!
And as we read in Daniel 7:7 -- Rev. 12:3 – Rev. 13:1 – and Rev. 17:3 and Rev. 17:12-14 the “10 toes” in the Statue of SATAN in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream correspond to the “10 Kings” and the “10 horns” which are the Kings and Political and Religious Leaders of this World TODAY in League with SATAN. For today is the “proper time” of GREAT TRIBULATION because Satan has NOT been free to UNITE ALL THE NATIONS OF THIS WORLD into ONE UNITED FORCE coming against the Kingdom of Heaven until this time NOW TODAY. And that is because Christ was waiting for everyone in His Book of Life to be born to be saved – “sealed” – and delivered into His Kingdom of Heaven before ENDING THIS HUMAN RACE!!! And John prophesies this time of GREAT TRIBULATION when the Final Spiritual Battle is now being fought on Christ’s Prophetic Timeline when he saw the FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE between The Kingdom of Satan and the Kingdom of Christ going on now on Earth when we read this HIGHLY CRYPTIC PICTURE of the Battle we are IN TODAY:
“The ten horns which you saw are ten Kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as Kings with THE BEAST (who is SATAN!!!). These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to THE BEAST. These will MAKE WAR with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.” (which are those of us in Christ’s Army on Earth TODAY!!!!!) (Rev. 17:12-14)
And because this is HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE – the “10 Kings” are not only the Political and Religious Leaders of this now 21st Century – but they also represent the COMPLETENESS of the EVIL POWER upon this Earth which has been sourced in SATAN – NOT One Particular Man of the Future – but SATAN!!! For it is SATAN who both Daniel and John saw in their visions who has had a continuing rulership of the Governments and the False Religions of the World since the Garden of Eden!!!
Satan is the King Over the Unsaved Remnant of This World
Who Are Coming Like “BEASTS”
to Devour and Destroy Those of Us Remnant
Who are Saved and the Prey of These BEASTS!!!
Daniel saw these last 4 Kingdoms of SATAN coming up out of the Earth just as John was also shown in his 4th vision that THE BEAST of Revelation Chapter 13 rose out of the Earth. And CLEARLY they BOTH saw that Satan was “THE BEAST” and those under Satan’s Leadership in their visions were fighting against those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST and the “prey” of these BEASTS right up until the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity. And what Christ was doing by giving Daniel and John these visions of BEASTS -- was painting a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE for us who are of the SEED OF CHRIST that portrays ALL of the Kingdoms of Satan as coming like WILD BEASTS depicting them as Lions -- Bears -- or Leopards to illustrate their strength and fierceness.
But NONE of these 4 Last Kingdoms of SATAN hold a candle to the very LAST EMPIRE of today when we read from Daniel what he was shown -- that Satan’s Final 4th Empire would “prevail” over us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST until “the Ancient of Days” came to DELIVER us in the RAPTURE when we read:
“ I came near to one of those who stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me and made known to me the interpretation of these things: ‘Those GREAT BEASTS, which are four, are four Kings which arise out of the Earth. But the saints of the Most High shall receive the Kingdom, and possess the Kingdom forever, even forever and ever.’” (Daniel 7:16-18) And Daniel is shown how fierce the LAST KINGDOM of today will be and we know NOW IS when we read:
“And in the latter time of their Kingdom, When the transgressors have reached their fullness, A King shall arise, Having fierce features, Who understands sinister schemes. His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; He shall destroy fearfully, And shall prosper and thrive; He shall destroy the mighty, and also the Holy people.“Through his cunning He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; And he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; But he shall be broken without human means.“ And the vision of the evenings and mornings Which was told is true; Therefore seal up the vision, For it refers to many days in the future.”
And I, Daniel, fainted and was sick for days; afterward I arose and went about the King’s business. I was astonished by the vision, but no one understood it.” (And today we know that this vision is referring to SATAN who is “THE BEAST” and now “THE ANTICHRIST” who is ruling the WHOLE WORLD and is “The Abomination of Desolation” that Christ referenced in Daniel’s visions that we of HIS SEED would see and KNOW that His 2nd Coming is near!!!) (Daniel 8:23-27)
What most even Professed Christians do not even realize today – is that the prophecy above depicts SATAN’S Final 4th Kingdom of TODAY. And that it is part of Christ’s DIVINE PLAN to thoroughly DEFEAT SATAN and those who are called “BEASTS” in his Kingdom of Babylon who have been fighting against those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST in Christ’s Kingdom of Heaven since the Garden of Eden. And that even though Satan may “prevail” against us through most of this GREAT TRIBULATION – Daniel was shown that on the 1,335thDay of the Great Tribulation that we who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST will ultimately overcome this 4th Kingdom symbolized by “THE BEAST” who is SATAN!!!
For when Christ tells us that “we will take and possess the Kingdom forever, even forever and ever” – that is a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE that Satan’s BEASTLY Kingdom that John calls “Babylon the Great” in Revelation will lose this Final Spiritual Battle. For both Daniel and John depict how Satan’s devouring Kingdom is ultimately overcome IN CHRIST at the END OF THE WORLD in this Final Spiritual Battle. In other words – we are given a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the 2 SEEDS of Mankind opposed and at ENMITY with each other right up until the LAST DAY just as Christ has REVEALED since the Garden of Eden. And He pictures Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” filled with the False Prophets in League with Satan and pictured as “BEASTS” who have come devouring “the prey” who are those of us who are the SEED OF CHRIST in His SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.”
And while Dispensationalists who are part of the “LITERAL at all costs Religious Leaders of today” HATE Christ’s teaching about these End-Times in CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE -- it is NONETHELESS still very typical in Scripture to see the unsaved 2/3 Remnant that Christ chose NOT TO SAVE pictured as the wicked ruling principality that come as BEASTS or fierce animals. And that’s also WHY the one ruling over them is also pictured as a Lion – a Bear – and a Leopard. For in Revelation Chapter 13 the first vision of A BEAST is clearly symbolic of SATAN as he has ruled over the wicked men of the previous Kingdoms of this World. And as they have come and blasphemed God throughout all of Human History.
And since the number 7 is the number representing “totality” or completeness – that’s WHY there are 7 heads of the BEAST to symbolize Satan’s Authority throughout the TOTALITY OF TIME!!! And John saw that “the Dragon” who is SATAN gave the Kings and Political and Religious Leaders under his command the power or authority to carry out his bidding and EVIL DEEDS which is just what we see happening TODAY now that Christ has LOOSED SATAN to rule the WHOLE WORLD!!! For as we see more with each passing day now -- the Elites can get away with murder because they are protected by “the Prince of Darkness” who is SATAN!!!
Likewise -- the number 10 is used in Scripture to symbolize “fullness” -- and “horns” symbolize "power." And so what we are being shown is a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the 10 horns of this BEAST who is SATAN symbolizing the “fullness of his power” in reigning NEAR THE END OF THIS FINAL 4th KINGDOM OF TODAY!!! And in Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” we see that the False Prophets in League with him are being allowed by Christ to reign during the latter times as we also read in John’s 6th vision record in Revelation 17:12-14. For Daniel and John’s visions REVEAL that this is when these 10 horns will arise to rule the WHOLE WORLD along with SATAN.
AND THEY HAVE ARISEN!!!!!!!!!
Why We Know That Satan is “THE ANTICHRIST”
and Not One Particular Man of the Future as Man’s False Eschatology Teaches!!!
HONESTLY -- there is NO DOUBT that the visions of both Daniel and John are of SATAN being “THE BEAST” and “THE ANTICHRIST.” For in John’s 4th vision in Revelation Chapter 13 – John depicts Satan as “THE BEAST” having his authority broken by being dealt “a death blow” which is CLEARLY what happened at the Cross to SATAN!!! And that is WHY John prophesied that all those on Earth NOT IN CHRIST and having “the seal of God” written upon them by Christ would worship SATAN. And clearly – those worshipping THE BEAST are the 2/3 Remnant that Christ has written “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” upon to show that they are of SATAN’S SEED and follow him being of his possession
when we read:
“And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. (which has now been FULFILLED since Christ has LOOSED SATAN and taken His restraint off of him and has allowed him to rule THE WHOLE WORLD!!!) And all the world marveled and followed THE BEAST. So they worshiped THE DRAGON who gave authority to THE BEAST (SYSTEM which no doubt represents Satan’s BEAST SYSTEM of Governments now that he rules over and has confederated them all to be AGAINST CHRIST in the United Nations!!!) and they worshiped THE BEAST, saying, “Who is like THE BEAST? Who is able to make war with him?” (Rev. 13:3-4)
CLEARLY – this prophecy being fulfilled TODAY comes from the prophecy of Genesis 3:15 which explicitly REVEALS that Christ would bruise Satan’s head. And that was definitely fulfilled during the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy when “the Messiah the Prince” CAME to destroy the works of SATAN and to set us prisoners FREE from the Bondage of SATAN – SIN – AND THE 2ND DEATH.
In other words the Prophecy of Genesis 3:15 which is mentioned in Revelation Chapter 13 is of SATAN when we read: “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil” as we read in 1stJohn 3:8. And after binding Satan through His Victory on the Cross – Christ has now finished saving His 1/3 Remnant out of this World that He wrote in His Book of Life before the foundation of the World. And just as He REVEALED to John in his 4th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 13 -- SATAN’S deadly head wound has NOW been healed with the LOOSING of Satan for “a short little season” to RULE THE WHOLE WORLD before Christ’s 2nd Coming. This is clearly all foretold in Daniel’s last 4 visions and in John’s 7 visions recorded in The Book of Revelation.
And just like in the 1st Century when the Temple Guards came to arrest Christ and He said that “DARKNESS REIGNED” – it was because Satan was LOOSED before the Cross until being bound at the Cross. And today Satan has been LOOSED again – and now DARKNESS is again reigning as we are living under the oppression of the Tyrannical Governments of the United Nations which Satan has Confederated AGAINST CHRIST and
those of us who follow Christ!!!
CLEARLY -- Satan himself is “THE BEAST” – and the Tyrannical Governments that he controls are ALL part of “THE BEAST SYSTEM” that John saw would be AT WAR with those of us in the Kingdom of Christ right up until the very LAST DAY!!! And the reason WHY this Battle is so fierce is because we now know that Satan’s Game Plan is to enforce the 2030 Agenda that promotes “the Great Reset” that is really Socialism/Communism/Marxism all rolled into ONE. And so we “Elect” of Christ are fighting the “Elites” of Satan who are trying to force their “Great Reset” on the WHOLE WORLD NOW!!! And THINK ABOUT IT – that is WHY Christ called this time in History THE GREAT TRIBULATION!!!
BOTH of Revelation Chapter 13’s 2 BEASTS are SATAN!!!
HONESTLY -- Revelation Chapter 13 is so vitally important to understand today because it pictures 2 BEASTS – with the first coming out of the sea of Humanity when we read: “Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a BEAST rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” (Revelation 13:1) While the 2ndBEAST John saw coming out of the Earth. And CLEARLY – both BEASTS are SATAN!!! But the 2nd BEAST is the one that we living today during this GREAT TRIBULATION with SATAN NOW LOOSED to rule the WHOLE WORLD should be the most concerned with.
AND HERE’S WHY!!!
This 2nd BEAST is a figure of Satan’s SEED who are the unsaved 2/3 Remnant of this World. In other words – they are the FALSE PROPHETS that arise after Satan is LOOSED now during this prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION when the Final Spiritual Battle is now being waged against us True Prophets of Christ!!! And that is WHY this BEAST is spoken of as having “horns like a Lamb -- and yet speaking like a Dragon.” Because it illustrates the “devouring BEASTS” who are those of THE SEED OF SATAN that Satan has DECEIVED to MAKE WAR against those of us who are of THE SEED OF CHRIST. And these False Prophets are just as cunning and deceiving as SATAN whom they serve – for they come in the likeness of Christ’s own people. But just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees at Christ’s 1st Coming – today at His 2nd Coming these False Prophets are also HYPOCRITICAL LIARS – and they think nothing of selling LIES in place of THE GOSPEL TRUTH!!!
And what we are seeing is the fulfillment of the prophecy that both Daniel and John were given of SATAN being “THE ANTICHRIST” or the substitute-Christ who ultimately is “The Abomination of Desolation” or the beginning of THE END that Christ said we “Elect” would see. For when Satan is LOOSED to rule the WHOLE WORLD as he is doing now – then Christ REVEALED in His True Eschatology that His 2nd Coming is not far behind – REALLY!!!
The CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE that Christ wanted John to give to us “Elect” having to co-exist on Earth now with SATAN’S SEED in this Great Tribulation -- is that Satan’s people come as peacemakers and reconcilers to God. But they are only deluding themselves because they bring no peace -- and they are certainly NOT OFFERING any reconciliation to those of us who follow Christ!!! ON THE CONTRARY!!! – just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees who THOUGHT they were God’s servants -- they are ADVERSARIES to Christ and His Word and His TRUE ESCHATOLOGY of these last of the Last Days!!!
In other words -- they are people who speak LAWLESSNESS as “THE DRAGON” HIMSELF who is SATAN!!! In appearance they portray themselves as coming as “ANGELS OF LIGHT” in the Name of what is good and honorable. And many even profess to be Christians and say that they are coming in the power of the Lamb. They may even THINK that the “Great Reset” is what is needed to fix all of this World’s problems -- but those of us who belong to CHRIST can see that they have been thoroughly DECEIVED by Satan!!! And that even though they are of the SEED of SATAN – they are “masquerading” as being from Christ’s Kingdom – which is DECEPTION SQUARED!!!
A Prerequisite to Going to Heaven and Being Raptured
is Having a New Covenant Relationship With Christ
Which is The Covenant of Grace in Daniel 9:27!!!
Make no mistake -- just like at Christ’s 1st Coming there are MANY 21st Century “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts who are fighting on the WRONG SIDE OF THE TRUTH just as the Pharisees and the Sadducees were when Christ arrived as “the Messiah the Prince” prophesied in the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And here we are TODAY living in the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy and there are still many Christians who don’t understand the meaning of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy. UNBELIEVABLE!!!
And this misrepresenting of Christ’s Prophecy through Daniel of His 1st and 2nd Coming is evidenced TODAY by THE GREAT DIVIDE among Christians as to when THE RAPTURE will take place. And HONESTLY -- it’s almost ironic that the DIVIDE seems to be whether one believes in a Pre – Mid – or Post-Trib Rapture when the GREATEST and the most significant DIVIDE has to do with the Doctrine of SALVATION itself. And by that I mean that THE GREAT DIVIDE in Christendom Today is whether one believes in Covenant Theology or Dispensationalism!!!
For CLEARLY – there is still a GREAT DIVIDE even among Professed Christians as to WHO Jesus said He was and WHO He came to SAVE and WHETHER He has made a New Covenant which takes away anyone’s sins yet or NOT???!!! And make no mistake -- a Pre-Mid-or Post Tribulation can only make any sense AT ALL if one believes that the Covenant of Daniel’s 70th Week is Future and is NOT a Covenant that Christ has ALREADY made. I mean – think about it -- one has to believe that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is yet Future and will last 7 years to even believe in a Pre-Mid-or Post-Trib Rapture. For WITHOUT this Future 7 years of Tribulation prophesied by Dispensationalists -- there is NO TRIBULATION that lasts 7 years to base a Pre-Mid-or Post Tribulation on!!!
And in all due respect to Dispensationalists -- if Christ WASN’T “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy to confirm the New Covenant with those of us in His Book of life – then what Covenant prophesies that Christ has taken away the sins of those of us who are of HIS SEED???!!! I’m not trying to be unkind – I’m just standing up for CHRIST’S GOSPEL TRUTHS. And in the rest of this Commentary I pray that I can prove through Christ’s Word that Covenant Theology is what Christ taught – NOT DISPENSATIONALISM!!!
Which means that JESUS HIMSELF is the CENTER of this GREAT DIVIDE!!! For we either believe that Christ has strengthened the Covenant prophesied in Daniel 9:27 by His shed Blood which has taken away the sins for all of us in Christ’s Book of Life. Or we believe as Dispensationalism teaches that the Covenant of Daniel 9:27 is a Covenant of Peace that “THE ANTICHRIST” will make in the Future with the Nation of Israel AFTER a Pre-Trib Rapture.
When actually -- Daniel 9:27 is both – for the 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week is about the Covenant that Christ has NOW confirmed with us who are of HIS SEED – while the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is about SATAN who is “The Abomination of Desolation” that Christ prophesies we “Elect” will see to signal that we are IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION. And we are now seeing that Christ has indeed LOOSED SATAN to rule the WHOLE WORLD before His 2nd Coming. And that is again WHY Christ is at the CENTER of not only Bible Prophecy but also THE GREAT DIVIDE !!!
Whether Christ has made a Covenant with any of us is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT for this Covenant of Christ’s forgiveness of SIN is a prerequisite to entering Heaven when one dies and being Raptured on the LAST DAY. And it just can’t be DENIED that when Christ made a Covenant with Abraham that his seed would inherit the Kingdom of Heaven – that was a PROMISE of Eternal Life. And NO ONE gets into Heaven without this Covenant of Grace!!! That TRUTH is confirmed by Christ having Paul write: “And if you are Christ’s, (SEED!!!) then you are Abraham’s SEED, and heirs according to the promise.”(which is the promise of ETERNAL LIFE!!!) (Galatians 3:17)
And CLEARLY – understanding that there are 2 SEEDS of this Human Race is essential to understanding the True Gospel of Christ. For from the beginning of time Christ announced in the Garden of Eden that because of the FALL that this Human Race would be forever DIVIDED into 2 SEEDS which are HIS SEED and the SEED OF SATAN. And Christ informed us that He had put ENMITY between these 2 SEEDS when we read what Christ said to the “serpent” who was of course SATAN!!! That because SATAN had tried to destroy Christ’s creation of this Human Race by DECEIVING Adam and Eve -- Satan and his SEED would be cursed and that there would forever be ENMITY between these 2 SEEDS of Mankind when Christ prophesied: “And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.” (Gen. 3:15)
And not only has Satan been trying to destroy those of us in Christ’s Kingdom since the Garden of Eden – but TODAY Christ has taken His restraint off of Satan and LOOSED him to rule the WHOLE WORLD. And Satan is HELL BENT on destroying Christ’s Kingdom and those of us in Christ’s Kingdom because he knows that his time to rule this World is soon coming to an END!!! And THAT’S WHY we are seeing the prophecy of Revelation 13:3-4 being fulfilled right before our eyes which prophesies that Satan’s deadly head wound would be “HEALED”!!! Satan of course KNOWS that he can’t win this Final Spiritual Battle – so what he is obviously HELL BENT on doing is DESTROYING as much of Christ’s Kingdom as he can. And isn’t that what we see happening now???!!! For with Satan now ruling the WHOLE WORLD – he is trying to FORCE the EVIL 2030 Agenda of Socialism/Communism/Marxism in the “Great Reset” all around the Globe today!!!
But the DECEPTION of Satan does not just concern the Global Politics of this World – for SATAN is clearly behind fostering THE GREAT DIVIDE of Christendom between those who believe in Dispensationalism and those of us who believe in Covenant Theology!!! And those of us who believe in Covenant Theology believe that Christ is THE SEED of Abraham in whom the Promise and Covenant of Eternal Life is made with. For the word “covenant” in the Greek is [diatheke] and in Hebrew is [beriyth] which both mean a promise or an oath. And we read that Christ brought to Isaac’s mind the promise or oath that He had given to Abraham which is still so important today for all of us to remember when we read:
“Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy SEED, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; And I will make thy SEED to multiply as the stars of Heaven, and will give unto thy SEED all these countries; and in thy SEED shall all the Nations of the Earth be blessed.” (Genesis 26:3-4)
CLEARLY – this was an “oath or a promise” which is the meaning of a “covenant.” And it proves that from the beginning of time God has made promises to HIS SEED. And those promises or covenants have been both “conditional” and “unconditional” Covenants. For in Psalms 132:12 we are told that the promise or “covenant” of Grace in the Old Testament was “conditional” when we read: “If your sons will keep My covenant and My testimony which I shall teach them, their sons also shall sit upon your Throne forevermore.” This was clearly the beginning of Christ’s Covenant of Grace to save His SEED which began in the Old Testament Days.
And in that time in History the Covenant depended on MAN keeping Christ’s Commandments which no one could do completely. But when “the Messiah the Prince” CAME at His 1stComing as prophesied in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy – Christ made it clear that this Covenant of “works” was being FULFILLED for us IN HIM!!! In other words – the Old Testament Covenant was “conditional” upon the SEED OF CHRIST obeying it -- while the New Covenant that Christ came to confirm and strengthen with “the many” of us who were OF HIS SEED as prophesied in Daniel 9:27 -- is an “unconditional covenant” unmerited by our works.
The Great Divide Between Dispensationalism and Covenant Theology Rages on Today!!!
HONESTLY – if one thinks that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is Future and that Daniel 9:27 is referring to THE JEWS making a Covenant with “THE ANTICHRIST” – then AGAIN – it needs to be asked: “Where is the Covenant of Grace that Christ makes with the rest of us prophesied???!!!” For what is INDISPUTABLY – ABOSOLUTELY – AND UNCOMPROMISINGLY ESSENTIAL to Christ’s True Gospel of Christianity -- is it’s DOCTRINE OF SALVATION. And Dispensationalism– clearly departs from True Christianity when it separates the SEED OF CHRIST into 2 Bodies which Dispensationalists teach are: 1) The Nation of Israel -- and 2) The Church. For according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology and Gospel – there are 2 SEEDS of Mankind -- NOT 2 Bodies of people in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST.
And THE GREAT DIVIDE comes into play when Dispensationalists do NOT believe that there is ONLY ONE WAY of Salvation for all who are saved as Christ taught – for they teach 2 distinctly different paths of Salvation. One Plan of Salvation they say Christ has designed for THE JEWS and the Nation of Israel – and that He has a separate and different Plan of Salvation for The Church. But of course Dispensationalists will agree that during what they call this present “Church Age” or Dispensation -- that any Jews who are saved -- are saved by Grace. But they teach that the Jews of the past and indeed the Jews of the Future when Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy will be fulfilled for ALL OF THE JEWS in the Nation of Israel AFTER the Pre-Trib Rapture of THE CHURCH – that they will THEN be justified by obeying the Mosaic Law. UNBELIEVABLE!!!
But that’s not all – for today THE GREAT DIVIDE has gotten even greater with a NEW TEACHING that Dispensationalism has invented which is called “New Covenant Theology.” For there are TODAY many Professed Christians who were former Dispensationalists that now believe in a compromise between Dispensational Theology and Covenant Theology which is NOT the Covenant Theology that is taught all throughout Scripture!!! And the reason WHY it is NOT – is because those who hold to this “New Covenant Theology” teaching think and teach that Christ has actually CHANGED the Laws. That TODAY we live under a “New Dispensation” inaugurated by Christ – which teaches that the Laws of Christ are NOT the same as the Laws of Moses.” All I can say is -- “They have to be kidding – RIGHT???!!!”
For in all due respect – doesn’t that contradict what Christ taught when He explicitly told us: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to FULFILL them. For truly I tell you, until Heaven and Earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.” (Matthew 5:17-18)
Make no mistake -- THE TRUTH according to Christ’s True Gospel and Eschatology – is that Christ CLEARLY taught “Covenant Theology” – NOT the “New Covenant Theology” which some Dispensationalists have now adopted which teaches Christ changed the Law instead of FULFILLING THE LAW!!! HONESTLY – if one believes that Christ IS GOD -- which HE IS!!! -- then that means that the 10 Commandments are NOT Moses’ Laws – but HIS LAWS!!! And Christ’s Unadulterated Word claims that the Old Testament Saints were saved by GRACE EXACTLY as we in the New Testament have been saved by GRACE. In other words – NO ONE has been saved by works -- but by the Covenant of GRACE prophesied in Daniel 9:27!!!
For in Daniel 9:27 it is said that Christ would confirm His New Covenant of Grace with “the many” of us in His Book of Life which includes Moses and Daniel and ALL of the Old True Testament Prophets of Christ. And that is EXACTLY what Christ said at the Last Super with His Disciples when we read Christ saying: “This is My blood of the Covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” (and clearly that is the Old Testament made New by the shedding of His Blood for ALL OF US who have ever been of THE SEED OF CHRIST!!!)
And that’s WHY “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology explicitly teaches that there is only ONE COVENANT in the WHOLE BIBLE which professes to take away sins. And that ONE COVENANT is where the Scripture speaks of a “Prince” being “cut off” for the sake (or sins) of His people and then the New Covenant is Confirmed – which is the 70th Week Prophecy given to Daniel. For it is in the Prophecy given to Daniel that Christ prophesied that HE would come as “the Messiah the Prince” who would save His people from SATAN – SIN – AND THE 2nd DEATH prophesied in Daniel 9:27!!! And that makes this awesome Prophecy a Prophecy about JESUS CHRIST – NOT
What Christ’s True Gospel Teaches About the New Covenant of Daniel 9:27
That Man’s False Eschatology of a Pre-Trib Rapture DENIES!!!
What makes Covenant Theology the Truth of Christ’s True Gospel more than anything else -- is that ALL of Scripture looks upon this Present Age of Humanity as a progressive REVEALING of the New Covenant of Grace!!! For the Old Covenant and the Old Order of Ceremonial Worship were carried over when Christ came to institute the NEW COVENANT and the New Order of SPIRITUAL WORSHIP. And it was at the time of His 1st Coming that Christ restored His Kingdom to its rightful heirs and set us who were of HIS SEED FREE from SATAN – SIN – and the 2nd DEATH by dying on the Cross which fulfills Daniel 9:26-27 of being “cut off” for His people.
And because of this GOSPEL TRUTH – the Law was NEVER done away with but was COMPLETED for the Believer IN CHRIST. In this way the OLD COVENANT became the NEW COVENANT!!! And this New Covenant which was prophesied in Daniel 9:27 was FULFILLED!!!
For CLEARLY -- the EFFICACY of Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross was NOT limited by time. For the Gospel of Christ teaches that from the moment that Christ’s Blood was proposed to cover the sins of those of us who were of HIS SEED for our redemption – that it was as good as an ACCOMPLISHED ACT from that day forward. And this was the case even though the prophecy of Christ coming as “the Messiah the Prince” was NOT prophesied until Daniel was given his 70thWeek Prophecy and the acts of Daniel 9:24 were NOT FULFILLED until Christ’s death on the Cross!!! For Christ is from everlasting to everlasting TIMELESS!!!
And make no mistake that Christ taught that the Old Covenant Law was still binding – but that the GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL was that if we are saved by Christ then we keep the Law perfectly IN HIM. In other words THE LAW is kept by being IN CHRIST much like the Feasts and Festivals are. And in Covenant Theology it is understood that the LAW is NEVER done away with – that we are still obligated to keep Christ’s Laws -- but those LAWS are made complete and FULFILLED IN CHRIST. For the keeping of the Law was FULFILLED by what Christ did at the Cross for us that was prophesied in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy and is recorded in Daniel 9:24. And the reason WHY we can’t boast of our good works is because keeping the Law is a product of
Christ working within us to do His Will.
The Old Testament Saints as well as we New Testament Saints are ALL part of the same CONTINUAL ETERNAL COVENANT OF GRACE!!! And that’s because the EFFICACY of the Cross reaches ALL THE WAY BACK to Abel and Abraham living BEFORE the Cross -- just as it reaches all the way forward to us living now in this 21st Century almost 2000 years now AFTER THE CROSS!!! And the GOOD NEWS of the Gospel is that Christ only had to be sacrificed ONCE and for all Eternity for the SINS of both the New and Old Testament Saints of His Kingdom of Heaven. And when He rose from the dead our sins were purged by His Death and resurrection because His blood strengthened the New Testament Covenant.
THE GREAT DIVIDE is clearly between those of us who believe that Christ taught Covenant Theology – and those who believe that Christ taught that The Nation of Israel and the Church should be kept SEPARATE until after He fulfills Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy for THE JEWS which won’t take place until after the Pre-Trib Rapture. But when one understands that a “covenant” is a “promise” or a “solemn oath” – that should explain WHY like a will – the New Covenant doesn’t become official until the person dies. In other words -- the “testator” is the person who is making the will and signing his or her name to give his inheritance to certain people after he or she DIES. And CLEARLY -- the person who the will is made out to can NOT take possession of what he has inherited in the will until the “testator” of the will dies.
And so it is with the New Covenant of Daniel 9:24-27. For the Covenant between Christ and HIS SEED was there before the foundation of the World – but it was of NO FORCE while Christ lived. He had to DIE to give it the strength needed to actually be enforced. And that’s EXACTLY what is prophesied in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy -- that Christ as “the Messiah the Prince” would come and strengthen the New Covenant which was SUPERIOR to the Old Covenant which was without strength to take away our sins when we read what most likely Paul wrote for Christ in the Book of Hebrews:
"For a testament is in force after men are dead, since it has no power at all while the testator lives. Therefore not even the first covenant was dedicated without blood. For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, saying, “This is the blood of the covenant which God has commanded you.” (and that is what Christ said at His Last Super – THINK ABOUT IT!!! He was the sacrificial Lamb which confirmed and strengthened the New Covenant!!!) (Hebrews 9:17-20)
CLEARLY – the New Covenant of Daniel 9:27 is complete or accomplished IN CHRIST – for Christ did NOT come to do away with the Law but to FULFILL IT!!! And the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of this New Covenant is the most important Covenant ever made – for it gives us a picture of what Christ’s DEATH on the Cross accomplished for us who have inherited the restored Kingdom of Heaven. And what Covenant Theology teaches is that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” in Daniel 9:27 who went to the Cross to establish and strengthen the NEW COVENANT in His Blood.
In other words – He had to DIE to make the inheritance of Eternal Life that was promised to HIS SEED a reality. And now that “the Messiah the Prince” CAME to fulfill the Prophecy of Daniel 9:24 for ALL of us in His Book of Life -- He dwells within us because He has written His LAWS on our hearts and in our thoughts when we read: “This is the (New) Covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put My Laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them.” (Hebrews 9:17-20)
If Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy is yet FUTURE as Dispensationalists teach – then there has been NO CONTINUATION of the most important Covenant that was ever made with this Human Race which is the COVENANT OF GRACE. And that Covenant began with those who are of the SEED OF CHRIST in the Old Testament Days and has continued until TODAY when the Gospel of Christ has clearly been taken to every Nation on Earth now.
And that’s WHY Man’s Eschatology based on Dispensationalism is a contradiction to the Covenant Theology that Christ taught. For Paul prophesied that Christ was grafting the New Covenant Branches into the Old Covenant Olive Tree. And the Olive Tree recorded in Paul’s writings in Romans 11 is a representation of the External Everlasting Covenant that we read of that Christ 1st gave to Abraham which proves that Christ from the very beginning of time came to institute a Covenant of Grace with His SEED when we read: “And I will establish My Covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an EVERLASTING COVENANT, to be God to you and your descendants after you.” (Genesis 17:7)
This New Covenant of Grace given to Abraham CLEARLY existed both before the Cross and exists NOW TODAY AFTER the Cross. And Paul was trying to teach from Christ that some of the branches were broken off because they NEVER were part of the Covenant Olive Tree – and that other branches were grafted in because they represented us Gentiles who were from the beginning of time part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST!!! Not a different Olive Tree – but the ONE SAME COVENANT TREE. And the root and substance of the Olive Tree is CHRIST who gave the Covenant it’s STRENGTH and made it NEW only in the sense that it now takes away our sins by what Christ did by His going to the Cross to DIE in our place!!!
But I’ve run out of room again. And I pray that Christ will give me the honor and the privilege to keep standing up for HIS TRUTHS in these Commentaries that I write for Him until His SOON 2nd Coming and THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY which is RIGHT ON THE HORIZON NOW to be sure!!!
