Daniel 9:27 – The Most Misinterpreted Prophecy in the Bible!

Daniel 9:27

Daniel 9:27 may very well be the most misinterpreted prophecy in the entire Bible! The early Protestant Reformers saw it as a Messianic prophecy fulfilled by none other than the Lord Jesus Christ! Most modern day evangelicals with the notable exception of Pastor Chuck Baldwin view it as prophecy fulfilled by the Antichrist in the unknown future.

Verse Segment Modern Evangelical Interpretation Protestant Reformers Interpretation
And he the Antichrist Jesus Christ
shall confirm the covenant shall make a treaty shall confirm the Covenant of Grace God made with Abraham
with many for one week with leaders of the world’s religions for 7 years in the future with the people of Israel living in the time of Christ
and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease the Antichrist will stop the daily sacrifice in a rebuilt temple of Solomon. Hence the Temple of Solomon needs to be rebuilt before Jesus will come. Jesus was crucified three and a half years after the start of His ministry. Jesus, the Lamb of God, became the ultimate sacrifice for sins which meant there was no more need for daily animal sacrifices, and hence, no more need for a physical temple to do them.
and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, The Antichrist will start a world wide persecution against all who refuse to worship him. Jesus through the Roman General Titus will desolate the Temple of Solomon
even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. Jesus will return, fight the Antichrist and his armies, and throw them into hell. Jesus will cause the Roman army to destroy both the Temple and Jerusalem as punishment for the rejection of the people of Israel for rejecting Him.

Wow, what a difference in interpretation! Where did the modern interpretation come from? I submit to you it came from a Jesuit priest named Francesco Ribera, circa 1585, who cooked it up for the purpose of taking Protestant Christians’ eyes off the Pope and the papacy as the biblical Man of Sin, also known as the Antichrist, to make them think the Antichrist is an Endtime figure only. The Jesuits sure did the job, didn’t they? This doctrine was initially rejected by Protestant Christians but was later promoted by John Nelson Darby and C.I. Scofield. As a result, it was accepted by the prestigious Dallas Theological Seminary. Furthermore, a host of other false doctrines such as pre-tribulation rapture and Christian-Zionism grew out of the false interpretation of Daniel 9:27.

  1. Daniel 9:27 is very confusing but I think we had to wait for the Daniel’s book of
    truth to be open to understand it better. If daniel11truth.com is correct we are
    awaiting this “in the middle” of the 7 years treaty – which is just about now.

    • Pedro, if you read all the other articles on this website about Daniel 9:27, you’ll see it’s not confusing at all. It’s clear.

      KJV Daniel 9:27 included with my comments in parentheses:

      And he (Jesus Christ) shall confirm (not make but confirm the Covenant that already existed) the (definite article) covenant (the Covenant God made with Abraham) with many (people of Israel) for one week (seven years): and in the midst of the week (at the 3 1/2 year point when Jesus was crucified) he (Jesus) shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, (cease animal sacrifices for sin because Jesus the Lamb of God became the ultimate sacrifice. The second half of the 7 year Covenant or 3 1/2 year period was the ministry of the Apostles to the Jews up to the stoning of Stephen and the calling of Paul to give the Gospel to the Gentiles.) and for the overspreading of abominations (the invasion of Jerusalem by the Roman Army) he (Jesus, through General Titus) shall make it desolate (destroy Jerusalem and the Temple, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate (the Jews, Jerusalem and their Temple, i.e. the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple 40 years later by the Roman Army which was an abomination to the Jews and which desolated Jerusalem and the Temple.)

      daniel11truth.com is not correct. It’s based on the school of interpretation of prophecy known as Futurism. I was a Fururist for 40 years and always speculating on who the Antichrist might be. After 40 years I learned the Protestant view of the Antichrist and now I KNOW who he is! The string of Popes from 500 a.d. till now! He’s not a single human person but Satan inhabiting men of power and wealth throughout time!

      The Book of Daniel as well as all the Books of the Bible were opened 2000 years ago by Jesus. Revelation chapter 5 verses 2,3 and 5 tell me so.

  2. What a bunch of crapola. You actually took a Scripture out of context & tortured it to make it say what you want it to say. I believe what Jesus says in Revelation about the synagogue of Satan false pastors like you & your silly beliefs, leading people astray.

    • I am giving you the standard Protestant interpretation of Daniel 9:27, what Christians used to believe before John Nelson Darby introduced his false doctrines of Dispensationalism and Futurism in 1830. And you call it “crapola”?! Shame on you! I dare say you have not experienced the wrath of the Roman Pope as they have in the 16th and 17th centuries! I suggest your views are from modern preaches that have been misled by false interpretations that originated with Roman Catholic Jesuit priests to mislead Protestant and Baptist Christians to get them to stop thinking of the Popes of Rome as the fulfillment of the man of sin of II Thessalonians chapter two. Will you research this subject further? Only if you seek the truth. Just because your favorite preacher told you differently from my article doesn’t make him right. He may be sincere but he still may be wrong. I don’t go by what people say the Bible says anymore, I go by what the Bible says, and YOU have NOT given me one single verse of Scripture to prove your point.
