What is the Confirmation of the Covenant?

Who is this “he” that will confirm the covenant?

This is an easy question to answer because the “he” does three things: (1) Confirms the covenant. (2) Causes the sacrifice and offering to cease. (3) Sets up the Abomination of Desolation.

Daniel 11:21-22 states that the Antichrist (the final king of the north) will be the prince of the covenant. So, it’s the Antichrist that will confirm the covenant.

Daniel 11:31 says that the Antichrist and his partners will take away the daily sacrifice.

Daniel 11:31 also says that the Antichrist and his partners will place the abomination that maketh desolate.

So, the Antichrist confirms the covenant, the Antichrist causes the sacrifice and oblation to stop, and the Antichrist places the Abomination of Desolation. It’s easy…the “he” in Daniel 9:27 is the Antichrist.

What is the covenant?

Genesis 15:18 (KJV) explains, “In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:” All the way back in the first book of the Bible, God made a covenant with Abraham that the Holy Land would be given to his descendants for a homeland. This is referred to as the Abrahamic Covenant.

What is the Confirmation of the Covenant?

If the covenant is God’s promise that Abraham’s descendants would live in the Promised Land, then what is the Confirmation of the Covenant? We’ve already proven above that the Antichrist is the “he” of Daniel 9:27. So it follows that he is the one who will confirm the covenant. In other words, the Antichrist will confirm Israel’s right to a homeland in the Promised Land.

Presently, Israel’s enemies deny that she has a right to a homeland there. Most of the Arab countries have yet to recognize Israel’s right to exist. When the Confirmation of the Covenant takes place, the Antichrist and the World Community will confirm Israel’s right to exist in the Holy Land within agreed upon borders. This agreement will also establish a Palestinian homeland in the area of Judea-Samaria, commonly referred to as the West Bank.

    Are we to believe the angel Gabriel came to reveal the timeline of the Messiah who would fulfill the New Covenant promised in Jeremiah 31:31-34, and then the angel failed to even mention the New Covenant?

    The following comes from the 1599 Geneva Bible, which is the Bible the Pilgrims brought to America, before John Darby showed up on our shores.

    Dan 9:27 And he shal confirme the couenant with many for one weeke: and in the middes of the weeke he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the ouerspreading of the abominations, he shall make it desolate, euen vntill the consummation determined shalbe powred vpon the desolate.

    Daniel 9:27
    And he (a) 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 (b) cease, (c) and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make [it] desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

    (a) By the preaching of the Gospel he affirmed his promise, first to the Jews, and after to the Gentiles.

    (b) Christ accomplished this by his death and resurrection.

    (c) Meaning that Jerusalem and the sanctuary would be utterly destroyed because of their rebellion against God, and their idolatry: or as some read, that the plague will be so great, that they will all be astonished at them.

      Although many say the “he” in Daniel 9:27 represents Jesus Christ, we can scripturally prove that it refers to the Antichrist. The last masculine noun in Daniel 9:26 is “the prince that shall come,” not the Messiah. The prince that shall come is the “he” of Daniel 9:27 and refers to the Antichrist. This becomes clearer when we read what this “he” does. We read that he causes the sacrifice to cease and the abomination of desolation. Jesus did not cause sacrifices to cease but rather He was the ultimate sacrifice. People could still make a sacrifice after the death of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ death took away God’s acceptance of animal sacrifices; it did not decree that animal sacrifices could no longer be made. Jesus also did not commit the abomination of desolation. We have conclusive proof that the Antichrist does both of these things in Daniel 8:11-13 and Daniel 11:31. So it is conclusive that the “he” in Daniel 9:27 is the Antichrist.

    The covenant which is confirmed by Antichrist in Daniel 9:27 cannot be the Abrahamic covenant of Genesis 15:18. Paul wrote in Galatians 3:17, “And this I say, that the covenant, THAT WAS CONFIRMED BEFORE OF GOD IN CHRIST, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.” God already confirmed the Abrahamic covenant of Genesis 15:18 in Genesis 15, which took place 430 years before Moses received the Law at Sinai in Exodus. The covenant that Antichrist will confirm is described in Isaiah 28:15; 18. (v.15) “Because ye have said, ‘We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:” (v.18) “And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.”
    God is not the author of this covenant. It is a covenant with death and deception.
