   Christ introduces ch. 11
    (pattern of Revelation)
    + He returns ’the 24th’ !

note :
only 11 lines because of curruption – see intro 

 
                                   why this chapter 10 has to go here — as
             
                                      introduction to Daniel 11
                               conform the pattern in Revelation

 

… just like in Revelation it is Christ here who explains the time of the end ;
(chapter 9)
         the angel gives a short summary of the next 2000 years (as ‘fractal’) ,
(this chapter 10)
         but Daniel did not understand and asks for clarification ,
         hence Christ appears to him here , to explain the coming events :
(chapter 11)
         all the events in the next 2000 years – the ‘king of the North’ chapter , 
(chapter 12)
         Christ tells He will return (and phrases the request) ,
         and makes a closing promise to Daniel himself ; the book Daniel ends ;
 
A)
Esau’s corruption of this chapter : (only-) half is usable  
… lines 1-8 are enough good
but after that nothing makes sense : Daniel faints upon seeing Christ
then Christ announces He will explain – yet nothing follows because
once more Daniel faints or is half asleep ;
in second half again is said “you beloved man” – as obviously corrupt ,
and concerning “the 21 days against the prince of Persia” see below ;
meaning
he made up lines 10-21 as space filling to create ‘a separate chapter’  —
2.
… where lines 1-9 originally were placed remains a question :
it may be at the end of previous chapter 9 sinds that ends rather abrupt 
but considered that 10+11+12 is extremely long (and were 2 chapters)
likely as the start of both ;
 
reason for his corruption :
… he did not go as far like in other prophets to swáp entire chapters
but it is clear that he sought as usual to undermine the endtime theme  —
a smart move here is his “prince of Persia 21 days”
to have the whole buildup stop BEFORE next ‘king of the north’ chapter
so that a reader will not consider the Revelation pattern 
and therefore would not consider next 11 as a 2500-year long period ;
 
B)
                               the problem of the timeframes :
       in this chapter Christ returns “at the 24th of the (..) month” 
 
… we try long time already to understand what is with this ’24th’  —
it shows in Haggai , Zecheriah – and now here , yet the month varies
as either the first , the seventh , the ninth or the eleventh
(and remember ’the doors of the ark closed at the 17th of the 2nd month’)
but what is it with this ’24th day’ ? 
the text HERE shows Christ returning ON that day – eventhough here it is
a foreshadowing by appearing to Daniel , yet this date has the same type
importance in Haggai where God states “from this day I bless you”      —
so are we really supposed to put an actual day – as that date – in our case ?
 
so ‘what timeframe’ was represented by Daniel’s fasting ?
per buildup of the chapters
Daniel had visions before , and was confused before , and each time ‘just’
an angel explained the matters to him – but with this ’24th’ it was Christ !
true – then we still don’t know the length of his fasting :
however , he started after the previous vision – the synopsis ,
which ends the same way as next chapter 11 ’the king of the North’
(so , having crossed the 2500-year interval already) ;
so could his fasting have been the ca. 40 (?) days after the 3,5 years ..?
 
… the problem is that ’24’ is a particular weird number  —
main days either fall at the first or the fifteenth (+ in cases an extra week)
and ’24’ only makes Sense after a foreign number was added :
say from a 15th as Passover + ca 40 days is the 25th of a next month :
– could he have fasted ’40 days’ ?
– the (corrupted-) Daniel 12 also shows a ca 40 ;
– we opted somewhere ’that Christ did not stay 40 days on earth but 7′ ,
   it seems that indeed those 40 days can be possible ;
– we posed (see page) that Passover this year was 16 May ;
[theme will be updated when we learn more]

 
corruptions : first half little – but second half totally corrupt on purpose
theme : and as buildup (see intro) 100% restored

In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto 
Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing [was] 
true, but the time appointed [was] long: and he understood the thing, 
and had understanding of the vision.
In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. 
I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, 
neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.

And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I was by the 
side of the great river, which [is] Hiddekel;
Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man 
clothed in linen, whose loins [were] girded with fine gold of Uphaz:
His body also [was] like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of 
lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like 
in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice 
of a multitude.

[Daniel is alone — as a playout ? :] 
7-8 (9&10) 11
And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw 
not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to 
hide themselves. Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, 
and there remained no strength in me: for my comeliness was turned 
in me into corruption, and I retained no strength.
(9-10 skipped)
And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the 
words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now 
sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling.

[=now] , only – I – Daniel – see – (this-) vision       +

note :
… that ‘Daniel is alone because the others fled’ reminds of the 
theme of Eliah and the widow (see Luke 4 page) where is said
that “Christ is not sent to éverybody (when he returns)” ;

[=but] he says – to me : Daniel , beloved – man ,
understand – the words – which – I – (will) speak – to you ,       +

and (do) stand upright – [=at] – your (standing-) place ,

I stand up – trembling ;

 
[referring back to Daniel’s fasting :]       [as “a” time period]

Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou 
didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy 
God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
(13 skipped)
Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people 
in the latter days: for yet the vision [is] for [many] days  
12
[=then] he says – to me : (do) not – fear , Daniel , 
because – since – the first – day       +
[=that] – you (have) set – your heart – to understand (-the vision) ,   +
b
and (have) humbled – yourself – before – your deity ,
