The book of Daniel prophesied about the host, the daily sacrifice, the sanctuary, and the rebellion. But what are they? What do they really mean?
Come and join me as I share with you what the Lord of Hosts has made me understand about these important aspects of Biblical prophecies.
Here is one of the prophecies that mentioned these biblical aspects.
Daniel 8:13 Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to him, “How long until the fulfillment of the vision of the daily sacrifice, the rebellion that causes desolation, and the surrender of the sanctuary and of the host to be trampled?”
It is important to understand that these Biblical aspects are not to be taken in a literal sense but rather by discerning the spiritual. With this in mind, let me share with you my insight into these.
The Daily Sacrifice
The daily sacrifice is the Lamb’s spiritual sacrifice. It is also referred to in the Bible as the “sufferings of Christ”.
2 Corinthians 1:5 For just as the sufferings of Christ overflow to us, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.
The daily sacrifice is offered by the saints or the Elect. They are considered the spiritual blood of Christ. They are the priests of God.
1 Peter 2:5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
In the last days, when the “little horn” is finally ruling on earth, the 144,000 Israelites will also be establishing God’s kingdom at around the same time.
Revelation 14:1 Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads.
The 144,000 Israelites will serve as priests of God. They are God’s elect. They will be offering spiritual sacrifices to God day after day in the form of sufferings. Their spiritual sacrifices are what the prophet Daniel is referring to as the “daily sacrifice”.
The 144,000 Israelites and their followers will be the subject of the little horn’s persecution. They will be given to the little horn’s hand for a period of time and in turn, the little horn will take away the daily sacrifice they are offering to God.
Daniel 8:12 Because of rebellion, the LORD’s people and the daily sacrifice were given over to it. It prospered in everything it did, and truth was thrown to the ground.
God wants us to worship him in spirit and truth.
John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
Rebellion is the practice of witchcraft which is the total opposite of what God wants us to do in the spirit realm.
1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, …
Moreover, when the 144,000 Israelites are finally ruling in the kingdom of God, the little horn religion along with the beast will oppose them. This will be considered “the rebellion” spoken of in the book of Daniel.
Lucifer, the man doomed to destruction, is the epitome of this rebellion. He will be the false light and the false messiah that many people will come to believe in. They will reject the truth that is in Christ Jesus.
2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no one deceive you in any way, for it will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness—the son of destruction—is revealed. 4He will oppose and exalt himself above every so-called god or object of worship. So he will seat himself in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.
The Lord of Hosts is God Almighty. The Prince of Host is Jesus Christ the Son of God.
Now, when God gathers the spirits in a person, that person becomes a host. He will be in the realm of Zion. He will be thought of as an angel in the spirit realm. He is a king and a priest.
Moreover, it is also noteworthy to mention that a person who is a host, can also be considered as a temple fortress.
The little horn religion will desecrate the temple fortress. It will remove the daily offerings of sacrifice by the Elect. The daily sacrifice is the sufferings of Christ that the Elect shares with the Son Of God.
Furthermore, the little horn religion will take over the host in the person of Lucifer. He will be the abomination that causes desolation.
Daniel 11:31 “His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation.
The prophet Habakkuk prophesied about how the King of Babylon will gather to himself all nations and peoples. At this point, the host would be taken over by Lucifer, the king of Babylon.
Habakkuk 2:5 “Indeed, because he transgresses by wine, He is a proud man, And he does not stay at home. Because he enlarges his desire as hell, And he is like death, and cannot be satisfied, He gathers to himself all nations And heaps up for himself all peoples.
When the host is given over Lucifer, the “little horn” religion would have control over the spiritual realm of the world. This is the main reason why the creation of the image of the beast is made possible by the little horn religion.
Revelation 13:14 Because of the signs it was given to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived those who dwell on the earth, telling them to make an image to the beast that had been wounded by the sword and yet had lived. 15The second beast was permitted to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship it to be killed.
The image of the beast is another topic that I will cover in future blogs.
The sanctuary is Judah. The high place of Judah is the heavenly Jerusalem or Mount Zion (Micah 1:5).
Psalm 114:2 Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
God’s elect who will rule on Mount Zion in the last days will be the 144,000 Israelite saints and their followers.
The elect will be kings and priests on Mount Zion. They will also be hosts of spirits.
Psalm 2:6 “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.”
According to the prophet Daniel, the little horn with Lucifer as its leader will magnify itself as equal to Christ. They will remove the daily sacrifice offered by the Elect.
Daniel 8:11 It magnified itself, even to the Prince of the host; it removed His daily sacrifice and overthrew the place of His sanctuary.
When the host is given to the little horn, then the place of the sanctuary will be overthrown and taken over by the little horn.
So instead of having Mount Zion hosting the spirits, the little horn religion will turn the spiritual realm into the “image of the beast” with Lucifer as their false “light”. This is how the little horn religion will overthrow the place of God’s sanctuary.
The host, the rebellion, the daily sacrifice, and the sanctuary prophesied by the prophet Daniel are Biblical aspects that can only be understood by the discerning of the spirits. These Biblical aspects are all pointing to the spiritual realm.
A host is a person where the spirits are forced to gather.
The daily sacrifice is offered by the priests of God in the form of sufferings which is also called the sufferings of Christ.
The rebellion is the practice of witchcraft and any spirit that opposes the truth.
The sanctuary is the spiritual tribe of Judah, Mount Zion.
I hope that God has given you the gift of discernment so that you may relate to what I’m trying to share with you here.
There is so much more that I did not cover in this blog in relation to the prophesies written about these Biblical aspects. We will cover those in future blogs, God willing.
Until then, may God bless you, friends!
