David Jay Jordan's
A.C. doesn't make the 'Covenant'
The AC will brilliantly come up with the the Covenant spoken of by Daniel the prophet. And this is not a
minor point, but a major interpretation that needs to be 'gotten right' because of the many implications
from getting it wrong. And so let me refer to this e-mail from a friend ....
"I know Jay, you don't think it is the same person who confirms the treaty and the one who breaks the
treaty. Can you explain to me why the same "he who confirms the covenant for 7 years is the same "he"
in the same verse who stops the daily sacrifice in the midst of the week? (Daniel 9) There is no change of
the object for he, which tells me that it is the same person. If I'm missing something here tell me. For I
believe that is how , by peace he will destroy many. Remember, the devil is a liar, so it's no big thing for
him to confirm or agree with the peace treaty, knowing that he will forsake it down the road. ****** , and I
do believe this present 'Roadmap to Peace will manifest the prophesied "holy covenant." They have set a
target date for 2005 for Palestinian statehood. We're on the doorsteps of this major prophetic event
brother, it's awesome. We must continue to blow the trumpet of recognition, so that the world doesn't miss
Amen !!! Let's discuss how in Daniel 9:27 it says that 'He shall confirm the Covenant with many. Does
"he" refer to the AC, I think not as that doesn't mesh with other scriptures from Daniel nor from the
Revelation of John. For to understand prophecy, we have to go by the preponderance of scriptures rather
than take one sentence and make that our whole interpretation in and of itself.
So let's check out the basic verse to start with.... my comments in .......(..)
Dan 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, (Jesus) but not for himself: (Jesus
died for us) and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; (People
of the prince, small 'p' is Titus and his Roman army who came to Jerusalem to punish the jews who were
rebelling against their rule. This happenned in 70 AD) and the end thereof shall be with a flood, (The end
referrs to the End-Time, when the devil and his people will take over in a flood of lies and power) and unto
the end of the war desolations are determined. (Yes, The Lord's prophecy in the Last 7 years is set and
can't be changed !!)
Dan 9:27 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, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall
make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
("he" is a pronoun, but it is obvious that it applies to the Devil, he is the prince of the air and not the
prince of Peace --- Jesus. We know that the AC gets totally possessed by the devil in the middle of the Last
7 years, for it is then that he calls himself "GOD" - 2 Thess 2 - but before this the devil gathers his people
together to set up the 10 nation kingdom that becomes a world empire in the Lord's eye when it signs the
Covenant. So the 'he' in my opinion can definitely refer to the devil gathering his ten signees together,
rather than assuming that the "he' refers to the AC. (SEE 7 Kingdoms of Man. )
Why, because all the rest of scriptures seem to indicate precisely and exactly that the AC is not around
during the time of the signing, and the AC does not sign the Covenant but comes in afterwards and is
against the Covenant and gets people to break the Covenant.
For just two chapters previous to Daniel 9 in Chapter 7, it says distinctly that .... .
Dan 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after
them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most
High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and
the dividing of time.
So here, there is no doubt that the ten are different from the one that arises afterwards, and the one that
arises afterwards is definitely the AC. IE, the AC is not one of the ten and does NOT sign the Covenant...
but arises afterwards and is probably not around at the the time of this Peace Conference which has to be
started by the RoadMap to Peace.
Who makes up the Covenant ? ... well in Daniel 11:22 it gives a clue as it says that the AC breaks the
prince of the Covenant. So logically and rationally, the AC doesn't break himself but destroys someone
else who is the composer and maker of the Covenant
Dan 11:22 And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken;
yea, also the prince of the covenant. (SEE AC and the Prince of the Covenant)
