Da 8:1 ¶ In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a vision appeared unto me, even unto me Daniel, after that which appeared unto me at the first.
( after the vision of chap. 7, and to be in context with verses 17, 19, the "last" end part )
Da 8:2 And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I was at Shushan in the palace, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in a vision, and I was by the river of Ulai.
Da 8:3 Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last.
Da 8:4 I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and became great.
Da 8:5 And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.
( who else but the USA has come half way round the earth to make war and touches not the ground. Also the he goat is an ornery goat later in this prophecy called a rough goat.)
Da 8:6 And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power.
Da 8:7 And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.
Da 8:8 Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.
( That "great" horn is our president and is greater than the ones of each state )
Da 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.
( Watch closely now and we will see who this "little horn" is )
Da 8:10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.
Da 8:11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.
(The Prince of the host is Yahshua, Jesus, who is ministering the daily for us in the heavenly sanctuary. Satan will soon make himself visible and personate Christ come again, the abomination of desolation, the ultimate transgression takes away the daily by reason of transgression as we read next, Mr 13:14. The Pope doesn't stand up and claim to be Christ as this one will )
Da 8:12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.
Da 8:13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
( Sanctuary, The place in time of worship and the Saints shut out, trodden. )
(“certain saint” is Wonderful,) following is from treasury of scriptural knowledge,
that certain saint. or, the numberer of secrets, or, the wonderful numberer. Heb. Palmoni. Jg 13:18; Isa 9:6; Mt 11:27; Lu 10:22; Joh 1:18.
Mr 13:14 ¶ But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
(He is ask two things, Dan. 8:13, above, how long to the daily and to the transgression of desolation and then the sanctuary and host to be trodden under foot. That time isn‘t to be known yet but He does not leave us in the dark, He tells us when this vision of the time of the end starts and when He will enter and cleanse the sanctuary to start it.)
Lu 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
( The times of the Gentiles began AD 34 when the gospel went to them and now we are near the "times of the Gentiles" to be fulfilled, this vision being for the time of the end )
Re 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
(The last end time prophecy, begins 1844, ends with the consumation )
Da 8:14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
( The date has been determined to be 457 AD the decree to rebuild Jerusalem to start this prophecy and also the seventy wks. of yrs. prophecy, Dan 9: and for Dan. 8 it brings us down to our yr. 1844, The prophecy of Dan. 9: ended 33AD )
(This is the time Yahshua, Jesus enters the heavenly sanctuary to take all the cases beginning with Adam and Eve that have collected there and separates the sheep, saved, from the goats, the lost, and this cleanses the sanctuary. He then continues to be our mediator, our high priest and this is His ministration known as “the daily”. The ultimate transgression takes away this ministry, go back and read Mt 24:15)
Da 8:15 ¶ And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man.
Da 8:16 And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision.
Da 8:17 So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.
Da 8:18 Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright.
Da 8:19 And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.
( How could it be made any clearer this vision is for the time of the end? Of special note is the "indignation" used here. )
(‘indignation” used here is)
Strong's Hebrew Dictionary
from 2194; strictly froth at the mouth, i.e. (figuratively) fury (especially of God's displeasure with sin):--angry, indignation, rage.
(Dan is told, this is the last end of God’s furious frothing wrath with sin! The time appointed isn‘t to be known and as we saw when Wonderful, Palmoni was asked for the time.)
Da 8:20 The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.
Da 8:21 And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.
(Spiritually we, USA, is Grecia)
("first' king means there is under kings, yes each state and etc. )
Da 8:22 Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power
(A Russian analyst has predicted the USA will be broken up in six divisions and this future history prophecy says four and this is the one that will come to pass.)
Da 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.(note the following verses from Eze , is not this Satan?)
Eze 28:3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:
Eze 28:9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.
Eze 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
Eze 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
Eze 28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
Da 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
Da 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
Da 8:26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days. ( Yes 2300 yrs. after 457 AD, as days = yrs. for this prophecy ) Da 8:27 And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.
The correct reckoning of the 2300 yr. prophecy, day = a yr. because all apocalyptic prophecy is by the Jubilee calendar, seven weeks of years = 49 and the Jubilee always falls the first year in the next cycle. It is a recurring week of years as the week of days is recurring days. The fiftieth year always must fall the first year of the next cycle. Jubilees are recurring also, every 49 years and not 50 years.
This prophecy of Dan. 8: and the 2300 days is the last of the year for a day prophecy reckoning and 1844 is the beginning yr. for this prophecy. From that date on to the end is the time of this prophecy as Daniel is told in verse Dan 8:17.
I invite any questions as I‘ve made this short..
