mo-ade’, mo-ade’, mo-aw-daw’
From H3259; properly an appointment, that is, a fixed time or season; specifically a festival ; conventionally a year ; by implication, an assembly (as convened for a definite purpose); technically the congregation ; by extension, the place of meeting ; also a signal (as appointed beforehand): – appointed (sign, time), (place of, solemn) assembly, congregation, (set, solemn) feast, (appointed, due) season, solemn (-ity), synagogue, (set) time (appointed).
This is to point out that the time “appointed” begins to be mentioned in verse 27 of chapter 11 of Daniel .It is connected with the “end” even in verse 27.
It is also mentioned in Daniel chapter 8:19 and is connected there with the “last end of the indignation”.
The idea that modern times begin in verse 40 has therefore to be scrutinsed, methinks. It may be so for, as verse 27 says, ” for yet the end shall be at the time appointed”. Verse 35 “even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.”
In both verses it is “yet”.
Verse 40 is different
ESV Daniel 11:40, “At the time of the end, the king of the south shall attack him, but the king of the north shall rush upon him like a whirlwind, with chariots and horsemen, and with many ships. And he shall come into countries and shall overflow and pass through.
In verse 40 we are actually at the time of the end, there is no more ” yet for a time appointed”.
Now that Israel is back in the land, the clock is ticking again. How far are we away from verse 40? Events are happening in that area of operations at the present time, Feb 2015. Will we see verse 27 in our time or will things recommence at verse 40. Some say verse 21 kicks it all off in our present time. It will become clearer as we approach the “time appointed”. Stay awake!
Dan 8:19, And he saidH559 H8799, Behold, I will make thee knowH3045 H8688 what shall be in the last endH319 of the indignationH2195: for at the time appointedH4150 the endH7093 shall be .
