    Daniel 9:27 FIRM COVENANT

    "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of [a]abominations will come one who [b]makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who [c]makes desolate" (NASB)

    Two words I like to reexamine are 'firm / confirm' and 'covenant'. Many interpret the 'he' in this verse to be of Christ Jesus, but it's my perspective that it was he of the prince of verse 26 that came in and destroyed the people like a flood.

    The word firm which is gabar H1396 which can mean 'to prevail, give strength, have strength, to be strong, to act proudly'.
    The word covenant which is bĕriyth H1285 which can mean 'alliance, pledge, treaty, agreement'.

    From a contextual stance of the 'he' is the one that was to come and destory the people and casue the stoppage of the daily in the midst of the determined week would have not being Jesus Christ , but Antiochus IV. In 1 Maccabees 1:11-15 tells us that he [ Antiochus IV] formed a treaty with many of the Jews that if they abandoned the Torah Law he would give them favor.

    1 Maccabees 1:11-15, 39-50
    "[11] In those days went there out of Israel wicked men, who persuaded many, saying, Let us go and make a covenant with the heathen that are round about us: for since we departed from them we have had much sorrow.
    [12] So this device pleased them well.
    [13] Then certain of the people were so forward herein, that they went to the king, who gave them license to do after the ordinances of the heathen:
    [14] Whereupon they built a place of exercise at Jerusalem according to the customs of the heathen:
    [15] And made themselves uncircumcised, and forsook the holy covenant, and joined themselves to the heathen, and were sold to do mischief.

    [39] Her sanctuary was laid waste like a wilderness, her feasts were turned into mourning, her sabbaths into reproach her honour into contempt.
    [40] As had been her glory, so was her dishonour increased, and her excellency was turned into mourning.
    [41] Moreover king Antiochus wrote to his whole kingdom, that all should be one people,
    [42] And every one should leave his laws: so all the heathen agreed according to the commandment of the king.
    [43] Yea, many also of the Israelites consented to his religion, and sacrificed unto idols, and profaned the sabbath.
    [44] For the king had sent letters by messengers unto Jerusalem and the cities of Juda that they should follow the strange laws of the land,
    [45] And forbid burnt offerings, and sacrifice, and drink offerings, in the temple; and that they should profane the sabbaths and festival days:
    [46] And pollute the sanctuary and holy people:
    [47] Set up altars, and groves, and chapels of idols, and sacrifice swine's flesh, and unclean beasts:
    [48] That they should also leave their children uncircumcised, and make their souls abominable with all manner of uncleanness and profanation:
    [49] To the end they might forget the law, and change all the ordinances.
    [50] And whosoever would not do according to the commandment of the king, he said, he should die.

    The pledge that if they would abondoned the Torah and worship his gods they would not be killed, but in the middle of this he stopped the daily altogether and begun to kill many of them.

    1 Maccabees 1:54-58"[54]
    Now the fifteenth day of the month Casleu, in the hundred forty and fifth year, they set up the abomination of desolation upon the altar, and builded idol altars throughout the cities of Juda on every side;
    [55] And burnt incense at the doors of their houses, and in the streets.
    [56] And when they had rent in pieces the books of the law which they found, they burnt them with fire.
    [57] And whosoever was found with any the book of the testament, or if any committed to the law, the king's commandment was, that they should put him to death.
    [58] Thus did they by their authority unto the Israelites every month, to as many as were found in the cities."

    Search "let God be true"; Dan 9. I believe he has a giod breakdown of this topic.

    Dan is at the end of the 70 yr Babylonian captivity prophesied to Jeremiah AND more importantly, prophesied through Moses in Deut 30:1-5. Deut 30:6-14 is then a prophecy that after being restored to the land, this people of the mosaic covt whom Moses is addressing would experience & recieve the circumcision of and the new heart, etc... which are words & terms for the new covt.

    In Dan's prayer in ch 9 he mentions faith that God will keep his promise of the everlasting covt (seed promised through eve to all mankind). But that hasn't happened yet to Daniels time. And there is no indication in Deut 30 that the circumcision of the heart is nit to be coincidental with the return from captivity UNTIL the Angel brings the message of a 490 yr "delay" or interlude between the return from Babylon and the fulfilling of this covt.

    For these reasons, confirming or establishing the new law of the new covt of God is referring to the new covt of deut 30:6-14; Rom 10:5-8 from @27-33 AD. It of course continues but 31/2 yrs were in his teaching and 31/2 yrs were through the indwelling of thise beliefs and Person in those who recieved him.
    1Thess 4:8 He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.
    If you are oppressed and enslaved by religious law, you may have a tendency to oppress, enslave and attempt to lord over others who are free.
