Daniel 9

After many years the angel returns to explain the vision in Daniel 8

Daniel 9:1 - In the first year of Darius the son Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm of the Chaldean;

Daniel 9:2 - In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

Daniel 9:3 - And I set my face unto the Lord God to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sack cloth, and ashes

Daniel 9:13 - As it is written in the law of Moses all this evil is come upon us yet made we not our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.

Daniel 9:21 - Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at he beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.

Daniel 9:22 - And he informed me and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am forth to give thee skill and understanding. 

Daniel 9:23 - At the beginning of they supplications the commandment came forth and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved; Therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.

Notice the angel is referring to the vision in Chapter 8 that was given years before. Daniel saw the little horn trampling on Gods people, the place of His Sanctuary, and Christ himself.  Daniel was given a time prophecy as to when God would restore the sanctuary, ( 2300 Prophetic days),  2300 years till the sanctuary would be cleansed. The angel returns in chapter 9 to give an explanation of Chapter 8 (A personal appearance by Gabriel to explain the vision of chapter 8).

Daniel 9:24 - Seventy (70) weeks (70 x 7 = 490) are determined (in Hebrew; cut off) upon they people (Jews) 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 (Christ).

490 years begins in 457 BC the decree to rebuild Jerusalem and ends up in 34 A.D. when the Jew's rejected Christ as the messiah and stoned stephen.

Daniel 9:25 - Know therefore and understand that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and build Jerusalem (Artaxerxes king of Persia ordered Jerusalem rebuilt in 457 B.C.) unto the messiah the Prince  (Christ public Ministry) shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: (69 weeks) or 69 x 7 = 483 years after the decree to rebuild Jerusalem or 27 A.D.) the street shall be built again, and the wall even in troublous times.

Daniel 9:26 - And after three score and two weeks (After 27 A.D.) shall Messiah be cut off, (Christ death 31 A.D.), but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; (Jerusalem destroyed 70 A.D.) and the end thereof shall be with a flood (Roman armies took down stones in temple to remove gold) and unto the end of war desolations are determined.

And He (Christ) shall confirm the covenant (Torah Law, Christ proved it is possible to obey law of God) one week (7 years from the start of Christ public ministry in 27 A.D. and the probationary time of 490 years Gabriel gave ends in 34 A.D, exactly one week or 7 years.)

Daniel 9:27 - And he shall confirm the covenant (Covenant Christ made with Moses) with many for one week (7 Years) from AD 27 to end of 490 years is AD34 exactly 1 week or 7 years in prophecy; and in the midst of the week (AD 31 is in middle of 27 A.D. and 34 A.D.  Stephen was stoned in 34 AD and gospel went to Gentiles.) and he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation (ceremonies that reminded them of Jesus coming as a baby, Passover etc.) to cease (end), and for the overspreading of abominations (sins) he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, (2nd coming of Christ) and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Now let us look at Daniel 8 again

The little horn tramples the Sanctuary, Christ, and His people.

Daniel 8:9 - And out of them came forth a little horn (Papal Rome), which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.

Daniel 8:10 - And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven, and it cast down some of the host and of the stars (Gods people) to the ground, and stamped upon them (Persecution of Gods people).

Daniel 8:11 - Yea he (Papal power) magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily (Priest daily activities of forgiveness of sins only Christ forgives) was taken away, and the place of his (Christ) sanctuary was cast down.

Daniel 8:12 - And an host was given him against the daily (Daily ministration of Christ in forgiving of sins) by reason of transgression and it cast down the truth (Changed God Law, the Ten commandments, etc.) to the ground (Trampled on Gods Holy Law, by changing it) and it (Papal Power) practiced and prospered.

Daniel 8: 14 - And he said unto me, unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. (Restored) (2300 day or 2300 years prophecy.)

Remember the angel told Daniel in Daniel 9:23 to consider the vision in Chapter 8, Daniel was confused about the 2300 years.  No time to start was given until Chapter 9.  The angel Gabriel said in Daniel 9:25 The decree to rebuild Jerusalem 457 B.C.  Go 2300 years and you get October 22, 1844.  To the Jew cleansing means Day of Atonement, that's when the priest reviewed the records of the past. On the Day of atonement the priest went into the Most Holy Place once a year to sprinkle blood on the Law of God, the blood covered sins.  In October 22, 1844 Christ moved into the Most Holy Place to cleanse the Sanctuary, of begin reviewing the books.  Notice the judgement scene in Daniel 7:9-10.  Daniel sees the little horn in power when the judgement was set, and the books were opened. Daniel beholds even until the little horn power is slain and thrown in the lake of fire.

Decree to rebuild Jerusalem was in the fall of 457 BC. 2300 years later is Oct 22, 1844 this falls on a Jewish Day of atonement. Priest's entered the Most Holy Place before the ten commandments.
