Excerpt:

The greatest prophecy of the Bible is Daniel 9:24-27. It tells of the coming Messiah and atonement. Before receiving the prophecy, Daniel prays. His prayer words enter the prophecy. As he prays we see again that Daniel himself is a prophecy, or prefiguring, of Christ, the True Daniel.

Excerpt:

Daniel’s prophecy promises an end to sin and the arrival of everlasting righteousness. This was accomplished by Christ in principle at his First Advent and will be consummated at his Second. Christ fulfills all prophetic vision, including the “cleansing of the sanctuary”-or the whole universe.

Excerpt:

The prophecy of the ‘seventy weeks of years’ is given for practical purposes, not for prophetic speculation. It is a period of ten jubilees. A jubilee year begins with the Day of Atonement. Calvary is the True Day of Atonement and brings us joy, despite life’s harshness.
