Bible Prophecy (Truth & Deception)

CONFIRMATION OF THE COVENANT


DANIEL 9:24-27

24Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

25Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

26And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself:

and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate

=============================

IF you consider what has been written about at the Last Supper and the covenant that was made in the Synoptic Gospels, most of these verses seem to have been nearly fulfilled.

I think the confirmation may have been made by Saul/Paul.

Jesus, in the Gospel of John, says that the prince of this world cometh and he has nothing in me. There is not covenant made at the last supper in the gospel of John. I think whoever it is that Jesus spoke about is the same prince that makes and confirms the covenant and caused the desolations in Jerusalem back when it occurred.

As far as a confirmation of a covenant is concerned I wrote in those two words on the bible search and these are the verses that appear:

  1. 1 Chronicles 16:17
    And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlastingcovenant,
    1 Chronicles 16:16-18 (in Context) 1 Chronicles 16 (Whole Chapter)
  2. Psalm 105:10
    And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlastingcovenant:
    Psalm 105:9-11 (in Context) Psalm 105 (Whole Chapter)
  3. Daniel 9:27
    And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
    Daniel 9:26-27 (in Context) Daniel 9 (Whole Chapter)
  4. Galatians 3:15
    Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
    Galatians 3:14-16 (in Context) Galatians 3 (Whole Chapter)
  5. Galatians 3:17
    And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.

==============================

In my opinion, the confirmation of a covenant has to do with Paul!

He is the only person that talks about the confirmation of the covenant  in the New Testament!

I admit I have no earthly idea what Paul is saying because he is very confusing.

Here is another interesting verse that is said by Paul:

2 Corinthians 12:16
But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.

=============================

I figure Paul must be involved because of this particular verse and the others that have to do with confirming a covenant!

Again, he is the only person to talk about confirming in relation to a  covenant in the bible and he talks about being crafty and catching whomever he is speaking to with guile.

Makes sense to me that Paul confirms or confirmed a covenant.

I’m no scholar, but someone ought to consider and see if this isn’t what the prophecies in Daniel are talking about.

It also seems to me that if the prophecy about confirmation of a covenant is in the bible so probably is the covenant and the confirmation of the covenant itself also would be contained in the bible.

Thats my opinion!

Was Paul a prince?

Paul started out as Saul …changed his name to Paul….

No telling what name he ended up being called

and no telling who he really was.

traveled all over the place on someone’s dime, cursed people, made them blind, caused havoc and watched as people were beaten…I believe he and his buddies infiltrated the true believers to destroy them and their testimony, which I believe was his ministry.

2 Corinthians 12:16
But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.

It was easier to destroy from within then attack on the outside!

Possibly this confirmation of the covenant has to do with the

Damascus Covenant and Paul of Tarsus!?????

2 Corinthians 12:16

But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.

The biggest problem I have with Daniel’s prophecy is about the decree to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince. Was there a decree that has been hidden?

The prophecy does not say the decree to build the TEMPLE. It just says the decree to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince which makes me think this happened between the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem in 70 Ad and the destruction again of Jerusalem (not the temple) in 135 Ad, which adds up to 65 years in between so this is a great possibility! Maybe the temple still stood until 135 AD and we have been lied to about the time of the destruction of the temple, which would not surprise me either way.

I would like to know who attests to the “fact” that the temple was destroyed in 70 AD?

Josephus Flavius?

Does anyone really believe anything he wrote?

Masada and Yodfat are  very good reasons not to believe him!
