* Today, we come to the end of our study of the book of Daniel. We have seen the Impact of His God, His Life and His Writings.
* The book of Daniel is split into two sections - chapters 1-6 were primarily historical; chapters 7-12 are primarily prophetical. Yet, as we have seen the "historical" section was laced with prophecy and the "prophetical" section has been chock-full of history ... especially from our perspective in considering fulfilled prophecy.
* Last week, as we examined the first portion of this final prophecy (contained in chapters 10-12), we saw that the information given expanded upon two of the previous prophecies. In Chapter 8, we saw the fulfillment of the prophecy during the days of Antiochus IV and the Maccabean Revolt. In Chapter 9, we saw how Daniel was informed that there would be 490 years (seventy sevens) decreed for his people that would be broken into two primary sections: 483 years between the decree to rebuild the city and the cutting off of the Messiah, and a final seven year period that would occur at the end times.
* Last week's portion of this final prophecy dealt with more detail regarding what would transpire during the 483 years.
* Today, we will consider greater detail of the final week. Remember Daniel 9:27 "Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate."
* The weight of the detail that God gave regarding The Time of the Greeks - as seen in the Seleucid and Ptolemaic Empires - should cause us to truly take note of what God reveals regarding this final week of Daniel's vision, which is still to come!
