Two of Daniel's prophecies differ by 75 days, perhaps paralleling the 75 dramatic days between the resurrections of Lazarus and Jesus Christ.
The Two Witnesses are two human beings who will be given extraordinary power just before Christ's return. They will give one final warning to this world.
The time of Christ's return appears to be soon in the light of recent events. Watch for the gathering of armies around the future capital of the world.
Zephaniah suggests that 'elect' may refer to a remnant called around the time of Christ's return, which God will give His Spirit and hide from the holocaust.
Before Christ's return, the Two Witnesses must appear, the Beast and False Prophet must arise, and daily animal sacrifices must be re-instituted in Jerusalem.
The first major concern of the Two Witnesses will be directed to the church rather than to the world at large, expunging worldliness out of the church.
The Seventh Trumpet is a call to assemble, a call to battle, and announces the arrival of a new ruler, Jesus Christ, separating the wheat from the tares.
During Jacob's Trouble, a confederacy of gentile peoples (particularly the offspring of Ishmael and Esau) will destroy the nations of modern-day Israel.
Christ's Two Witnesses will accomplished their work before the Beast kills them. Humanity will feel relief at their death, but stark terror at their resurrection.
The seven golden lamps symbolize 7 churches, empowered by abundant oil, manifested as spiritual words. Zerubbabel is a type of Christ, finishing the Temple.
Faith, hope and love are spiritual gifts which safeguard us from discouragement and depression, giving us a mature perspective that will last eternally.
Daniel 7-8 is full of overlapping images and visions. Both chapters show the certainty of the end of Gentile kingdoms, replaced by God's eternal Kingdom.
The 'confirm[ing] a covenant with many' in the Seventy Weeks Prophecy hints at a future confirmation of the covenant to complete the seventieth week.
