Truth for Today Bible Study Module 19

Judgement—Because this is a Bible study, the word judgement is being used in the Bible sense. In a Bible judgement two parties were involved both claiming to be telling the truth. The judgement process was to examine the evidence, make a verdict, declare the sentence and carry it out. In the Bible the grand judgement is between God and Satan. The judgement that we face personally will decide whether we have been a witness for God or for Satan. Here is the final pronouncement made in that judgement ‘He that is righteous let Him be righteous still, He that is holy let Him be holy still.’ He that is unjust let Him be unjust still, He that is filthy let Him be filthy still.’

Sacrifice—a sacrifice of a lamb was offered at the temple in Jerusalem morning and evening.

Oblation—This was a gift of grain and oil made to the Lord to accompany the sacrifice. Numbers 28:3-8

Choler—hot anger, fury.

Saint—In the Bible this word often refers to an angel.



Q1 When Jesus began His ministry what statement did He make?

Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.  Mark 1:14,15.

Q2 To what ‘time’ was Jesus referring?

And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease. Daniel 9:27

NOTE:  Jesus knew the scriptures and He was referring in these words to the precise time when He should appear at the beginning of the 70th and last week of the prophecy of Daniel 9. He showed publicly that this prophecy referred to Himself.  He Himself was the anchor that secured the entire prophecy of the seventy weeks  and also of the remaining time till the 2300 days would be ended.

Q3 Why would the words about the evening oblation, of which the angel Gabriel spoke to Daniel, have been especially meaningful to him?  

Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.  Daniel 9:21

NOTE  Daniel, who was in captivity in Babylon was praying towards the temple in Jerusalem, which was the centre of his worship at home. It was the time of the evening sacrifice and Daniel was in prayer, remembering the solemn service that used to take place at that hour. Gabriel came at that very time of day to tell him that those sacrifices, and the oblations that accompanied the sacrifice, i.e. the gifts of grain and wine  oblations, would stop.  This would happen when Messiah was cut off or killed in the middle of the 70th week.
