Unlocks a lot of meaning in crucial passages

by Jennifer Jones

EXCELLENT explanation of Daniel's visions and the now, by Christians, overlooked importance of keeping the Law handed down in the Old Testament. Christ told us that he did not come to destroy the law but to fulfill it. Christians are not taught to pray three times a day today. Priests and pastors may say the daily office but most Christians model after the Lord's prayer and devise their own prayers. Paul says to "Pray without ceasing" but praying three times a day puts one in a prayerful state of mind all day. It makes no sense that God would be so specific in the Old Testament about what He wanted his people to do and then say "Oh, that's over. Never mind." in the new. Our freedom in Christ includes adapting those laws to the reality that the Messiah has already come, that no animal sacrifices are required now that the Sacred Lamb of God has been offered.

The taking away of the daily sacrifice
by: Anonymous

When Jesus mentioned the abomination of desolation in Matthew 24,He was referring to the antichrist. I understand that Jesus fulfilled the law, in terms of repentance in Jesus' name replacing animal sacrifice for forgiveness of sins. What I'm saying is, how does the antichrist take away the daily sacrifice? He takes it away by deceiving people to believe that he's the true Christ. You have to symbolically understand what the daily sacrifice means. Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God that took away the sin of the world. Spiritual speaking, if people start worshiping the antichrist, thinking he's the true Christ, he symbolically takes away the daily sacrifice.
