The last 7 years of the 70 years of YirmiYah 25:12 and Daniel 9:2

06/19/6986* [5765] 7th day of the week [09/24/05]

Updated 12/30/6987* 3rd day of the week [03/20/07]

Updated 02/30/6996* [5775] 1st day of the week [05/17/15]

 

*Time has been set back one year to adjust for House of Yudah's membership into the UN in 1949 CE. Originally I had the time set at 1948 CE when they became a nation, but I see now that they did not put themselves under the Babylonian king’s thumb until 1949 CE. In Yirmiyah 25:12 and Daniy'Yah 9:2, YaHVeH has established a 70 year time line for the king of Babylon to be destroyed.

1 Corinthians: 13:12:  For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

This article is to help narrow the time frame of Daniel Chapter 9. I wrote an article a year or two ago called:

35) Daniel Chapter 9 and how it relates to our time Part I As time draws closer and closer to the return of Rabbi Yahshua the Mashiyach, YaHVeH the FATHER by HIS Ruach causes the pieces of the puzzle in my mind to come together (1 Cor. 13:12). It is becoming clearer and clearer now to me how the time given in Daniel chapter 9 will fit into the last 7 years of the 70 given in YirmiYah/Jeremiah 25:12 and Daniel 9:2 (Matith’Yah/Matthew 24:15).

I see now that the last 7 years of the 70 is the most active and can be divided into 2 parts. The first part (3.5 years) of the 7 years is what Rabbi Yahshua called the “beginning of sorrows” in the KJV:

Matthew 24:8: All these are the beginning of sorrows.

The second half of the 7 years will be the “great tribulation”:

Matthew 24:21:  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Famine (great economic down turn) on all the nations of Yisrael will begin at the beginning of the 7 years (Revelation 6). See article: 62) 7 years of plenty and 7 years of famine Remember these things are determined when the House of Yahudah became a nation in 1949/5708/6930*. No other time after 70 CE matters because the House of Yudah did not become a nation until these modern times (Yirmi`Yah 24; Matith`Yah 24:32), Read article: 70) Right Figs and Bad Figs

I will break the time down, the best I know how in the way I believe YaHVeH through HIS Ruach has given it for me to understand. I will start in Daniel 9:24:

Daniel 9:24:  Seventy weeks are determined upon THY people and upon THY kodesh 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 Kodesh.

Seventy weeks = 490 days. Verse 24 takes place after verses 25.

I believe the 3rd temple will begin to be built sometime when the 7 years of famine begins (sometime in the second 3.5 years*). In my mind the way I picture it now is that the temple will be built first than the streets and the wall. I believe that the temple will take approximately a year and half* to build (See Yosephus Bk. 15 11:6); this will lead to the command to build Yerusalem the streets and the wall:

Dani`Yah/Daniel: 9:25:  Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Yahvshalam until  mashiyach the prince shall be seven weeks, and sixty two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

When the command to build Yahvshalam is given 49 days (7 weeks) will pass, the Leviy high priest/kohen will be anointed (“messiah the prince”). Remember this is all taking place in sometime in the last 3.5 years* of 7 years of famine (B’reshiyth/Genesis 41), which is called the, which will be during the "Great Tribulation"*(Matthew 24:8). After the 49 days (7 weeks), start counting 62 weeks (“sixty two weeks”), which = 434 days.

Daniel 9:26:  And after sixty two weeks shall mashiyach be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the kodesh; and the end of it shall be with a flood, and until the end of the war desolations are determined.

Now the Leviy high kohen will be ministering the high kohen duties of offering sacrifices and oblations. It will be during this time the “falling away” will occur (2 Thes. 2:3; Heb. 10:26). I believe the “falling away” is speaking about those who once believed that Rabbi Yahshua the Mashiyach fulfilled (Matthew 5:17) all those things that the Leviy high kohen was and did (Hebrews 4 – 6), now they give up that belief/emun for the blood of bulls and goats (Amos 5:25 Read and study all the letter to the Hebrews). After 434 days past (62 weeks) the Leviy high kohen will be stopped from performing his duties and the “great tribulation” will begin.

From verse 26 when the 62 weeks (434 days) are over, the “great tribulation” will begin, because the verse says “...and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the kodesh...” The “...people of the prince...” is speaking about the beast power ruler mentioned in the book of the Revelation.

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 on the desolate.

In the 434 days (62 weeks) the Leviy high kohen is offering sacrifice and oblations, in the last 30 days of the 434 days “the people of the prince” of the beast power (beast with ten horns) will cause the sacrifices to stop. In the last 3.5 or 4 days of the 434 days (62 weeks = threescore and two weeks) “the people of the prince” will make some type of agreement, the sacrifices and oblations will begin again, which was agreed to last 7 days with the House of Yudah without any interference. Maybe some type of cease fire agreement. But “the prince of the people” will betray his word and cause “...the sacrifice and oblation to cease...” again in the middle of the week. Remember this 434days (62 weeks) is taking place in the second half* (3.5 years = 1,260 days) of the 7 years of famine. It is called the “Great Tribulation”* (Matith`Yah 24:15 - 21*).

Now let me explain where the 30 days comes from. We have to also take into account Daniel chapter 12. The days listed in this chapter are 1,290 and 1,335 days. We will deal with Daniel 8:14 a little later:

Daniel: 12:11: And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

Daniel: 12:12: Baruk is he that waits, and comes to the thousand three hundred and thirty five days.

What I believe; 30 days of the 1,290 days is part of “beginning of sorrows” (first part of the 7 years of famine). 1,290 days minus 30 days = 1,260 days (Revelation 11:2 – 3) = “great tribulation”:

{Revelation/Raz Galah/Secrets Revealed: 11:2: But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the kodesh city shall they tread under foot forty two months.

Re: 11:3: And I will give power to MY two witnesses, and they shall naba/foretell a thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.}

Do you see now how I determine the 30 days in the 434 days? 26.5 days of the 434 days, no sacrifices and oblations will be allowed. The “...king of fierce countenance...”  (Daniel 8:23), which is “the prince of the people” will negotiate some type of agreement with the House of Yudah so that they can begin again to offer sacrifice and oblations. The oblations and sacrifices will be attempted to be offered for 3.5 days but instead (26.5 + 3.5 = 30), because “the prince of the people” will go back on his agreement and cause the sacrifices and oblations to cease in the middle of the week (Dan. 9:27) by attacking the House of Yudah, which begins the “great tribulation”. The “two witnesses” (Daniel 8:13) will be preaching the entire time of the “great tribulation”, which will last 1,260 days = 42 months = 3.5 years, which is the 2nd part of the 7 years of famine (Rev. 11:2-3).

 

This takes us back to Daniel 9:24 and the 70 weeks determined to complete the desolation of Yahvshalam (Daniy`Yah 9:2; Yirmi`Yah 25:12). This 490 days (70 weeks) takes place in part of the first half and carries into the 2nd half* of the 7 years of famine, which is part of the “great tribulation”. This foretelling must also tie into Yechizki`Yah/Ezekiel chapter 4. Read article: 33) End Time Scenario Part 1. This 490 days I believe takes place in part of the first half of the 7 years of famine and carries into the 2nd half* of 1,260 days of the “great tribulation”. I don’t understand why this 490 days does not add up to the 390 days the House of Yisrael will be defeated and 40 days the House of Yudah will be defeated, which = 430 days. I’m not totally sure if the 390 and the 40 days should be added together, or should the 40 days be counted inside the 390? If we look at what happen to ancient Yisrael, it was the House of Yisrael that went into captivity first. They were totally defeated, no melek and no country, they were scattered. But the House of Yudah continued to be a nation after the House of Yisrael was defeated, than the House of Yudah eventually was defeated and went into captivity.

In order to get the 390 days and 40 days into the 1,260 so that they end at the same time, the 40 days would have to be counted inside the 390 days. This means the House of Yisrael (T`hiyliym/Psalm 83:3 “YOUR hidden ones”) will be defeated first again, and than the House of Yudah (T`hiyliym 83:3 “YOUR people”). 100 days + 390 = 490 days (70 weeks), I just don’t understand what the 100 days would be for? 1,260 – 490 = 770 days.  These 100 days might be when the shepherd tribes of the House of Yisrael begin to send their armies toward Yahvshalam, where they will be gathered in the valley of Yizre`el (Hosea 1:5) because they see the armies gathering around Yahvshalam (Yechizki`Yah 4:3; Mat. 24:15). This would mean that when these 100 days are fulfilled, the shepherd tribes (UK and USA) of the House of Yisrael (all the other tribes will follow them into battle if they have military strength to fight) would have only a short time left before they are defeated and taken captive.

I believe we need to examine Yechizki`Yah chapter 4 to receive added understanding of these events:

Yechizki`Yah: 4:1: You also, ben of Adam, take you a tile, and lay it before you, and portray on it the city, even Yahvshalam:

Remember the nabiy Yechizki`Yah represents YaHVeH. The Word of YaHVeH tells Yechizki`Yah to draw a picture of the city of Yahvshalam on a tile, than he is to lay the tile down on the ground, than he is to lie on his side facing the tile that he drew a picture of Yahvshalam on.

Yechizki`Yah: 4:2: And lay siege against it, and build a fort against it, and cast a mount against it; set the camp also against it, and set battering rams against it round about.

3.  Moreover take to yourself an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between you and the city: and set your face against it, and it shall be besieged, and you shall lay siege against it. This shall be a sign to the house of Yisrael.

Don’t forget that Yechizki`Yah represents YaHVeH. The Word of YaHVeH tells Yechizki`Yah to put an “iron pan” between him and the city of Yahvshalam “...and set your face against it.” YaHVeH HIMSELF is causing this siege and is backing this invading army because of the children of Yisrael’s disobedience (Yirmi`Yah 13:21; Hosea 8:14).

Why does the Word of YaHVeH tell Yechizki`Yah to put an “iron pan” between him and the city of Yahvshalam? For this you will have to remember the nabuah/foretelling that was given to Daniy`Yah. Remember the statue in Daniel chapter 2, and the fourth beast of Daniel chapter 7:

{Daniy`Yah: 2:33: His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

Daniy`Yah: 2:40: And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things: and as iron that breaks all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.

“His legs of iron…” Roman Empire 30 B.C.E. to 476 C.E. Roman Empire was divided after 330 CE: West capital in Rome and the East capital in Constantinople.

Daniy`Yah: 2:41: And whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay.

“…His feet part of iron and part of clay…” 395 C.E. Theodosius bequeathed the empire to his two sons: [41The Byzantine Empire ruled from Constantinople it survived for 1000 years.] Arcadius 17 years of age had the mainly Greek speaking Eastern half; [The west ruled from Ravenna ineffectively, it steadily eroded.] Honorius had the western half; he was eleven years old. In 410 C.E. Rome was taken and plundered by Alaric and his Visigoths; Gaiseric [Genseric] invaded Rome in 455 C.E. In 476 C.E. Romulus Augustus, son of a Pannonian [who had married a Roman woman] reign for a year was deposed by mercenary German troops under Odovacar."

Daniel: 7:7: After this I saw in the night visions, and observe a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.}

Do you understand now why the Word of YaHVeH tells Yechizki`Yah to use an “iron pan” to put between him and the city of Yahvshalam? It’s to let us know, the Body of Yahshua (believers) what empire will besiege Yahvshalam. It happen in 70 CE/5051 FCA by the Roman Empire (Read article: 44) The 8th king who is of the 7, and 10 kings of Revelation 17:, and 36) Ten Kings of Revelation 13 Part I), which is the fourth beast of Daniel chapter 7, and the legs of iron, and feet part of iron mixed with clay in chapter 2:33 of Daniel . It will happen again, the Roman Empire will be resurrected one last time to fulfill YaHVeH’s foretelling Word (Revelation 13:11-12). The stage is being set as I write this article. We know the organization today as the “EU”. If you have been watching as Yahshua instructed you to do (Mat. 24:42), you would know that the EU has to take the lead in dealing diplomatically with Islamic nations that don’t want to deal with the USA or UK.  On October 3, 2005 (06/28/6986* [5765]) the EU just held talks with Turkey to eventually become a member. Turkey is an Islamic nation, which will be a bridge to the Middle East Islamic nations, which they will be the ten horns mounted on the beast mentioned in Revelation 13 and T`hiyliym 83. Turkey will become a member of the EU. As time goes on it will be very beneficial for the EU to have them as a member. You can read news article’s that are leading up to their eventual membership into the EU on the "Message Board" of this web site: Revelation 2:13: "...even where Satan's seat is..." Remember the eastern half of the Roman Empire was located in Constantinople, which is part of Turkey today called Istanbul.

Yechizki`Yah: 4:4:  Lie you also on your left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Yisrael on it: according to the number of the days that you shalt lie on it you shall bear their iniquity.

The significance of Yechizki`Yah lying on his left side is to point in the direction that YaHVeH scattered the shepherd tribes of the House of Yisrael (UK = Ephraim and USA = Manasseh Genesis 48 and 49:22 – 26), which was in the west.

Yechizki`Yah: 4:5:  For I have laid on you the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shall you bear the iniquity of the house of Yisrael.

You need to read article: 71) Scoffers in the last days. Part 1 The time is being cut short as Yahshua spoke in Matthew 24:22, instead of the time being 390 years it will be literally 390 days.

Yechizki`Yah: 4:6:  And when you have accomplished them, lie again on your right side, and you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Yudah forty days: I have appointed you each day for a year.

Notice now the Word of YaHVeH tells Yechizki`Yah to lie on his right side; this is to indicate the direction that YaHVeH scatters the leadership of the House of Yahudah. Remember they were taken to Babylon, which is northeast of Yahvshalam. Remember the time is being cut short (Matith`Yah 24:22), instead of forty years it will be literally forty days.

Yechizki`Yah: 4:7:  Therefore you shall set your face toward the siege of Yahvshalam, and your arm shall be uncovered, and you shall naba/foretell against it.

Yechizki`Yah's arm being uncovered is to represent that YaHVeH will remove Yahvshalam defenses.

Yechizki`Yah:  4:8:  And, observe, I will lay bands on you, and you shall not turn you from one side to another, till you have ended the days of your siege.

The bands on Yechizki`Yah signify that nothing cannot (no amount of prayer) and will not (no amount of pleading) stop these events from being fulfilled (Mat. 26:54).

Yechizki`Yah: 4:9:  Take you also to you wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make you bread of it, according to the number of the days that you shall lie on your side, three hundred and ninety days shall you eat of it.

Remember the seals of Revelation chapter 6. This vision given to Yechizki`Yah to do happens in the 2nd half of the 7 years of famine called the “great tribulation”. When a city is under siege it cannot receive anything in or anything out.

Yechizki`Yah:  4:10:  And your meat, which you shall eat, shall be by weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time shalt you eat it.

11.    You shall drink also water by measure, the sixth part of a hin: from time to time shall you drink.

12.    And you shall eat it as barley cakes, and you shall bake it with dung that comes out of man, in their sight.

Updated 03/05/6996* [5775] 7th day of the week/Shabbat [06/20/15]

The siege is so bad that there will be nothing else to cook food with but human excrement.

Yechizki`Yah: 4:13: And YaHVeH said even thus shall the children of Yisrael eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles whither I will drive them.

Now you really need to pay attention to the phrase “...shall the children of Yisrael eat their defiled bread...”

Remember that Rabbi Yahshua before He came in the flesh was hidden in the scriptures. This is the mystery and secret that Shaul/Paul talks about in Romans 16:25:

{Romans: 16:25: Now to him that is of power to establish you according to my glad message (“gospel”/euaggelion, Gk./basar, Heb.), and the preaching of Yahshua Mashiyach, according to the revelation of the mystery (musterion, Gk./alam, Heb.), which was kept secret (sigao, Gk./sathar, Heb.) since the world began,}

Yahshua also mentioned the mystery that was kept secret from the nebiyiym and melekiym of old who desired to know these hidden things that pertain to Him:

{Luke/Ur/Loukas: 10:22: All things are delivered to Me of My AB: and no man knows who the Ben is, but the AB; and who the AB is, but the Ben, and he to whom the Ben will reveal HIM.

Luke: 10:23: And He turned Him to His limmudiym, and said privately, Baruk are the eyes, which see the things that you all see:

Luke: 10:24: For I tell you, that many nebiyiym and melekiym have desired to see those things which you all see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you all hear, and have not heard them.}

Remember who Yahshua said He is (Yahn/Yahvhanan/Yohn 6:26 – 71):

{Yahn: 6:51: I am the living bread, which came down from shamayim: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.}

So understand the “defiled bread” the children of Yisrael is eating is another messiyah (2 Corinthians 11:4; Galatians 1:6), which is idolatry. This includes the teachings of “Christianity”, which dominates the House of Yisrael. The House of Yudah, those in power don’t believe who Yahshua is, and some have even erased any history of Him that has been kept from secular and religious sources. But remember a “falling away” (Luke 8:13; 2 Thessalonians 2:3; Iybriyiym/Hebrews 6:6; 10:26) must take place, these are those who once believed that Yahshua the Mashiyach fulfilled (Mat. 5:17; Luke 24:27, 44 Read all of the book of Hebrews) those thing pertaining to the kohen-hood and animal sacrifices, but now, because a 3rd temple will be built will give up that belief to accept a Leviy high kohen, and the oblations and sacrifices he will offer.

Yechizki`Yah: 4:14:  Then said I, Ah Rabbi YaHViH! Observe, my life has not been polluted: for from my youth up even till now have I not eaten of that which dies of itself, or is torn in pieces; neither came there abominable flesh into my mouth.

Yechizkiyah conscience would not allow him to even do what the Word of YaHVeH told him to do. Understand it would have been perfectly fine for Yechizkiyah to use mans dung to cook his food, because the Word of YaHVeH told him to do it. But because the Word of YaHVeH saw that Yechizkiyah’s conscience would be hurt HE gave him cows dung (Mat. 15:11; Luke 10:8; Romans 14).

Yechizki`Yah: 4:15:  Then HE said to me, Look, I have given you cow's dung for man's dung, and you shalt prepare your bread with it.

16.  Moreover HE said to me, ben of Adam, observe, I will break the staff of bread in Yahvshalam: and they shall eat bread by weight, and with care; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment:

17.  That they want bread and water, and be astonished one with another, and consume away for their iniquity.

Going on to chapter 8 of Daniy`Yah/Daniel. Remember chapter 7 was a brief outline of four pagan kingdoms that will come into power on the earth, starting with the Babylonian kingdom that Daniel himself was already made a captive of. Daniel also lived to see the second kingdom come into power. Chapter 7 ends with the fourth kingdom that will be in power when Yahshua the Mashiyach appears the first time, and when He returns in the clouds the second time. I originally wanted to make this explanation as brief as possible, but I don’t believer there is any way around it. I believe I need to review Daniel chapter 8 so that you can clearly understand where my understanding comes from about Daniel 8:14, where it speaks of the 2300 “days” in the KJV.

Read this article to have a clear understanding of the Beasts of Daniel chapter 7:

82) The USA is NOT the Beast of Revelation 13

This event took place around 550 B.C.

Daniy`Yah/Daniel: 8:1: In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a vision appeared to me, even to me Daniy`Yah, after that which appeared to me at the first.

Daniy`Yah: 8:2: And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I was at Shushan in the palace, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in a vision, and I was by the river of Ulay.

From Easton`s Scriptural Dictionary (edited):

Topics: Shu'shan

Text:  a lily, the Susa of Greek and Roman writers, once the capital of Elam. It lay in the uplands of Susiana, on the east of the Tigris, about 150 miles to the north of the head of the Persian Gulf. It is the modern Shush, on the northwest of Shuster. Once a magnificent city, it is now an immense mass of ruins. Here Daniel saw one of his visions (Dan. 8); and here also Nehemyah (Neh. 1) began his public life. Most of the events recorded in the Book of Hadassah/Esther took place here.

Modern explorers have brought to light numerous relics, and the ground plan of the splendid palace of Shushan, one of the residences of the great king, together with numerous specimens of ancient art, which illustrate the statements of Scripture regarding it (Dan. 8:2). The great hall of this palace (Hadassah/Esther 1) "consisted of several magnificent groups of columns, together with a frontage of 343 feet 9 inches, and a depth of 244 feet.

These groups were arranged into a central phalanx of thirty-six columns (six rows of six each), flanked on the west, north, and east by an equal number, disposed in double rows of six each, and distant from them 64 feet 2 inches." The inscriptions on the ruins represent that the palace was founded by Darius and completed by Artaxerxes.

Topics: E'lam

Text:  highland, the ben of Shem (B`reshiyth/Gen. 10:22), and the name of the country inhabited by his descendants (14:1, 9; Yeshayah/Isa. 11:11; 21:2, etc.) lying to the east of Babylonia, and extending to the shore of the Mediterranean, a distance in a direct line of about 1,000 miles. The name Elam is an Assyrian word meaning "high." "The inhabitants of Elam, or 'the Highlands,' to the east of Babylon, were called Elamiym/Elamites. They were divided into several branches, speaking different dialects of the same agglutinative language. The race to which they belonged was brachycephalic, or short-headed, like the pre-Semitic Sumerian's of Babylonia.

"The earliest Elamiy kingdom seems to have been that of Anzan, the exact site of which is uncertain; but in the time of Abraham, Shushan or Susa appears to have already become the capital of the country. Babylonia was frequently invaded by the Elamiy kings, who at times asserted their supremacy over it (as in the case of Chedorlaomer, the Kudur-Lagamar, or 'servant of the goddess Lagamar,' of the cuneiform texts). "The later Assyrian monarchs made several campaigns against Elam, and finally Assur-bani-pal (about 650 BCE/4330 FCA) succeeded in conquering the country, which was ravaged with fire and sword. On the fall of the Assyrian Empire, Elam passed into the hands of the Persians" (A.H. Sayce). This country was called by the Greeks Cissia or Susiana.

Topics: Ula'i/Ulay

Text:  the Eulaus of the Greeks; a river of Susiana. It was probably the eastern branch of the Choasper (Kerkhan), which divided into two branches some 20 miles above the city of Susa. Hence Daniel (8:2,16) speaks of standing "between the banks of Ulay", i.e., between the two streams of the divided river.

Daniy`Yah: 8:3: Then I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and, observe, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last.

The “ram” represents the Median-Persian Empire.

Daniy`Yah: 8:4: I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and became great.

Daniy`Yah: 8:5: And as I was considering, observe, a he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.

Daniy`Yah: 8:6: And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had there seen standing before the river, and ran to him in the fury of his power.

Daniy`Yah: 8:7: And I saw him come close to the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and hit the ram, and broke his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped on him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.

The “he goat” represents the Greco-Macedonian empire and Alexander the Great.

Here are some notes I wrote down in my James Moffatt Scriptures. Theses notes came from publications that the "World Wide Church of God" published when they were enforcing the Sabbaths. I will be posting my studies on the Book of Daniy`Yah, so check the web site dedicated to Yahshua the Mashiyach for those articles http://MakeTheWayStraight.com:

Refer to Daniel 11:2-3: Then king Philip of Macedonia planned a great war to conquer the Persian Empire, with a army made up mostly of Grecians. He died before plans were completed. But his son, Alexander the Great took over his plans, and invaded Persia. He met the Persian army at the Battle of Issus, 333 BCE/4649 FCA Then he swept down into Mitsrayim/Egypt, and then to a final crushing defeat of the Persian Empire at the Battle of Arbella, 331 BCE/4650 FCA after, which Alexander marched on a conquest clear to India, sweeping all before him.

Daniy`Yah: 8:8: Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of shamayim.

Refer also to Daniel 8:22: Alexander the Great is the horn that was “broken”. He died suddenly of a fever in Babylon in 323 BCE/4657 FCA, about 33 years of age. Alexander’s empire was divided among his generals after his death. By 301 BCE/4680 FCA four generals divided the empire, fulfilling this verse of the prophecy. In the south – Egypt – ruled Ptolemy1. Seleucus2 held Syria –the north and east. The northwest – Thrace – was under the control of Lysimachus3. Cassander4 dominated Macedonia in the far west. Later, in 281 BCE/4746 FCA, Seleucus overthrew Lysimachus and completely controlled the north. There after the two dominating areas of the empire were the kingdom of the south, under the Ptolemies and the kingdom of the north under Seleucidae.

Daniy`Yah: 8:9: And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceedingly great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land1.

Daniy`Yah: 8:10: And it waxed great, even to the host of shamayim; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped on them.

Daniy`Yah: 8:11: Yes, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his mikdash was cast down.

Daniy`Yah: 8:12: And a host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practiced, and prospered.

Daniy`Yah: 8:13: Then I heard one kadosh speaking, and another kadosh said to that certain kadosh which spoke, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the mikdash and the host to be trodden under foot?

Daniy`Yah: 8:14: And he said to me, until two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the mikdash be cleansed.

Daniy`Yah: 8:15: And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniy`Yah, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, observe, there stood before me as the appearance of a man/geber.

Daniy`Yah: 8:16: And I heard a man's/adam voice between the banks of Ulay, which called, and said, Gabriy`el, make this man to understand the vision.

Daniy`Yah: 8:17: So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell on my face: but he said to me, Understand, O ben of Adam: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.

Daniy`Yah: 8:18: Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright.

Daniy`Yah: 8:19: And he said, Observe, I will make you know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.

Refer to Daniel 8:9-19,23-27: The little horn symbolized a king – a ruler – who shall arise “in the latter time of their kingdom” verse 23. Not immediately after the four fold division of Alexander’s empire – but at the “crisis at the close” of human misrule in this world. Verse 12 – one opinion – found in most bible commentaries is that Antiochus Epiphanes (died 163 BCE/4818 FCA) is the “little horn”. Antiochus did indeed prohibit the daily sacrifices – from 167 – 164 BCE/4814 - 4817 FCA He defiled the temple with an idol, and offered swine’s blood upon the altar. He authorized the burning of as many scrolls of the Law as could be found. He attempted to stamp out the truth. He did fulfill this naba/foretelling of the “little horn” as a forerunner. But the final ruler symbolized by the “little horn” of Daniel 8 is to be alive at the second coming of Yahshua Messiyah. Notice Daniel 8:14, 26 – In most Scriptures you will find a marginal note for the word days that reveals the original Iybriy/Hebrew word is “evening – mornings.” This foretelling is not referring to 24 – hour days, but to daily sacrifices offered evenings and mornings. (See V`yakra/Lev. 6:9,12). The vision of  “2300 days” is here called in the scripture “the vision of the evening and mornings.” Why? In other words, here is a foretelling that 2300 evening and morning sacrifices would cease to be offered. Since the daily sacrifice was offered twice a day this would have been exactly 2300 daily sacrifices offered. The Jewish Soncino commentary on Daniel, by Dr. Judah J. Slotki, comments on this verse:

“The numeral refers to the number of times the offerings, normally brought twice daily will be omitted giving a total period of 1,150 days.”

At the end of this 1,150-day period the sanctuary was to be “cleansed” or “justified.” This prophecy is dual, as are many Bibles prophesies, and it is yet to be completely fulfilled! What happens to the daily sacrifices in the days of Antiochus Epiphanes (167-164 B.C.) – when 2300 sacrifices were not offered for a period of 1,150 days – was only a type of what is yet to occur! But the fulfillment of this prophecy “in the latter days” will not again be for 1,150 days, but for 1,290 days, according to Daniel 12:11. 2000 years after the days of Antiochus Epiphanes.

Daniy`Yah: 8:20: The rams, which You saw having two horns, are the kings of Media and Persia.

Daniy`Yah: 8:21: And the rough goat is the king of Yavan/Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.

Daniy`Yah: 8:22: Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power.

Alexander's four Generals are the four kingdoms.

Daniy`Yah: 8:23: And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

Daniy`Yah: 8:24: And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the kadosh people.

This ruler will have demonic powers helping him.

Daniy`Yah: 8:25: And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Sar/Prince of sariym/princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

Daniy`Yah: 8:26: And the vision of the evening and the morning, which was told, is true: wherefore shut you up the vision; for it shall be for many days.

Daniy`Yah: 8:27: And I Daniyah fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.

I believe another clue the 2,300 (morning and evening) sacrifices ceasing has already been fulfilled is in verse 26, where it says “...it shall be for many days.” The “many days” indicates the fulfilling of it not to far from it being giving to Daniyah. When the verse says “latter times” (Dan. 8:23) I believe it is in the time in the far future (when the foretelling is given to Daniel) just before Rabbi Yahshua’s second coming. So instead of dealing with 2,300 morning and evening sacrifices ceasing (1,150 days), we now have to jump to Daniel chapter 12:11.

Daniel: 12:11: And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

This is what I believe YaHVeH through HIS Ruach is beginning to give me to understand. If you see a problem in my math or an error in what is being said, correct me with the love of Yahshua the Mashiyach and show me my error in understanding.
