Is Daniel 9:27 About Antichrist or Christ?

Harry Grattan Guinness, ca. 1910 (IMP-CSCNWW33-OS9-11)

One of the gravest evils of futurism is the terrible way in which it tampers with this great fundamental prophecy (Daniel 9:27), applying to the future doings of some ideal Antichrist, its Divine description of the past deeds of the historic Christ.

He (Antichrist) co-exists not with a recognized Jewish nation, but with the rejection and dispersion of the Jews, and with a recognized professing Christian Church. His sphere is not Palestine, but Christendom; his throne is not Jerusalem but Rome; his victims are not Jews, but Christians.


Note: This has implications for those holding to a future 7-year tribulation where an individual Antichrist makes a treaty or agreement with Israel but breaks it after 3.5 years.
