5 June 2016 Blair Courtney O’Connor gives us insights into Daniel 9: 22-27.
What would happen if your views of the future were changed? How would you live your life? Would you do it differently?
In this passage Daniel describes to the Israelites, who were in exile in Babylon, his vision of their future. He speaks of the coming of God’s Heavenly Kingdom. Daniel explains the ‘seventy sevens’ – the 490 years ahead of them – Israel’s return to Jerusalem, the rebuilding of the temple, the arrival of the Messiah and His sacrifice, then war, and then deceit and destruction wrought by the antichrist.
We have a future in God’s Kingdom when we give our lives to Jesus and give glory to God.
