Daniel 9 verse 27 is all about the obliation to cease and Abomination that Maketh Desolate.That is directly associated with the Great Tribulation
which also leads to the coming of Christ .Daniel 12 verse11 thru 13 is another explanation . Matthew 24 explaind further that the times in Daniel 9
verse 27 is the times of the Great Tribulation and return of Christ .
It is associated with what Christ did on the cross.
Christ is the one who puts an end to sacrifice and sin. The Antichrist does not save anyone as your doctrine claims.
I haven't read any posts claiming that the anti-christ saves. What I am
reading is that you don't believe the abomination that causes
desolation is the anti-christ setting himself up to be worshipped as god in the temple.
Daniel's 70th week is described by Daniel in Chapter 9:26-27 "...The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations
have been decreed. He (speaking of the ruler to come who will destroy the city and sanctuary for the final time)
will confirm a covenant with
many for one 'seven' (reading up to this point makes it the final seven)
. In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and
offering. And on the wing of the temple, he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him."
In Daniel 12:11 we are told "From the time the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290
days. Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of 1,335 days."
Corresponding to this, we have Revelation 13... this is where we are told that satan, the dragon, will authorize the beast (anti-christ and his
kingdom) to receive worship... "and all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the
world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain." Rev. 13:8
Further, in Rev 13:15, we are told that the false prophet (satan's assistant) will set up an image, and all who will not worship the beast will be
Nowhere do I read people getting saved by the anti-christ... only that he will demand people to worship him as god. I also do not read any part of
this being fulfilled yet. If this has been fulfilled, what 7-year covenant (or peace treaty or agreement) do you know about that no one else knows
about? When did that take place and by whom? Because according to Daniel himself, that must
take place to "kick off" the last week (the final
7 years aka tribulation period).
