The Daily Sacrifice Is Taken Away
The prophet, Daniel, foretells of a time in the latter days
when the "daily sacrifice is taken away." It is believed
by most Bible scholars and theologians that when this
happens a literal blood sacrifice of animals will cease.
But I believe according to the Bible the daily sacrifice
being taken away is just further confirmation that Christ
and His gospel will be set at naught by the world.
First of all let's establish through confirmation in the
Scriptures just what the "daily sacrifice" is. We find the
answer to this in Exodus 29: 37-46, and in the book of
Ezekiel 46: 13-15. In these Scriptures God gives the
command for there to be a daily sacrifice of two lambs
offered upon the altar. One lamb is to be offered in the
morning, and the other lamb offered in the evening. And
God said that it was to be a continual daily sacrifice,
offered throughout all generations at the door of the
When Jesus came into the world He freed us from the
law, but He did not do away with the "daily sacrifice;"
but instead Jesus became the "Daily Sacrifice," which
continues to be a perpetual sacrifice at the door of the
tabernacle. Jesus is the Lamb of God which was
sacrificed for the sins of man: Jesus is also the Door
through which everyone must pass who enters into the
tabernacle of God. The perpetual, never ending,
sacrifice of two lambs (Jesus and the Holy Ghost,
sacrificed at the door, (the way of entrance) of the
tabernacle, (the Church), is still being observed today
through the plan of salvation.
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and
saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the
sin of the world.
Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say
unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests
went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the
service of God.
But into the second went the high priest alone once
every year, not without blood, which he offered for
himself, and for the errors of the people:
The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the
holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the
first tabernacle was yet standing:
Which was a figure for the time then present, in which
were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not
make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to
Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers
washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them
until the time of reformation.
But Christ being come an high priest of good things to
come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not
made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his
own blood he entered in once into the Holy place,
having obtained eternal redemption for us.
I believe the second lamb which is offered in the evening
symbolizes the Holy Ghost, for He manifests the power
of the Son of God in man. And we just read in Hebrews
9: 8 the Holy Ghost is the way into the Holiest of all. He
is also the Spirit of truth which testifies of Jesus. And so
it is these two, Jesus and the Holy Ghost, that are the
"daily sacrifice" in the world today.
And when the daily sacrifice is taken away the earth will
enter into it's darkest hour. This will be the day when the
truth is cast down and stamped upon. Man will choose
to believe a lie rather than the truth, and will seek to enter
the kingdom of God without going through the sacrificial
Lamb, Christ Jesus, and being redeemed by His blood.
In that day the daily sacrifice will be taken away and
replaced by a falsehood, which will be an abomination
in the sight of God. And this will be the abomination
(detestable act or condition) that will bring desolation
(destruction) from Almighty God.
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day:
the night cometh, when no man can work.
As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.
Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have
the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that
walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
2 Tim. 4:3-4
For the time will come when they will not endure sound
doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to
themselves teachers, having itching ears;
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth,
and shall be turned unto fables.
Now we will read some of the Scriptures from the book
of Daniel concerning the "daily sacrifice." I have
inserted in parentheses the definition to some of the
words and phrases; and I have also underlined the
portion of scripture referring to the daily sacrifice being
Dan. 8: 10-12
And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it
cast down some of the host and of the stars to the
ground, and stamped upon them.
Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host,
and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the
place of his sanctuary (the sacred place where God and
man meet, the Church) was cast down.
And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by
reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the
ground; and it practised, and prospered.
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and
upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to
make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for
iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and
to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the
Know therefore and understand, that from the going
forth of the commandment to restore and to build
Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven
weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall
be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be
cut off (to be made absent, not to be recognized), but
not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall
come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the
end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of
the war desolations are determined.
And he shall confirm (verify, establish more firmly,
strengthen) the covenant with many for one week: and
in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice
and the oblation to cease (come to an end), and for
the overspreading of abominations he shall make it
desolate, even until the consummation (complete,
perfect, finish), and that determined shall be poured
out upon the desolate (solitary, the abandoned).
Dan. 11: 29-36
At the time appointed he shall return, and shall come
toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or
as the latter.
For the ships of Chittim (Cyprus) shall come against
him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have
indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he
shall even return, and have intelligence (knowing and
understanding) with them that forsake (renounce, refuse
to acknowledge) the holy covenant.
And his arms shall stand on his part, and they shall
pollute (defile, desecrate, treat with sacrilege) the
sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily
sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that
maketh desolate (that detestable act, or condition, that
brings God's wrath, and ultimate destruction).
And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he
corrupt (pervert, influence for evil) by flatteries: but the
people that do know their God shall be strong, and do
exploits (notable achievements).
And they that understand among the people shall instruct
many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame,by
captivity, and by spoil, many days.
And when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little
help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.
And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them,
and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time
of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.
And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall
exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and
shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods,
and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for
that that is determined (decided, ordained) shall be done.
In the book of Daniel we do not see God's people being
taken out of any of the tribulation experienced by the
world until after the abomination that brings desolation is
set up. This is the sign that Jesus told us to look for, that
which would take place before His return in Matt. 24:15.
When the great false prophet has set himself up as God,
and blasphemes the name of God, and replaces the truth
of the gospel with a lie, leading the world astray; then it
will be accomplished that the "daily sacrifice is taken
away." In the twelfth chapter of the book of Daniel we
see that God's people are delivered after all these things
have come to pass.
And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince
which standeth for the children of thy people: and there
shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there
was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy
people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found
written in the book.
And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall
awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and
Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other
two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and
the other on that side of the bank of the river.
And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was
upon the waters of the river, how long shall it be to the
end of these wonders?
And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon
the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand
and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that
liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an
half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter
the power (the control or influence) of the holy people,
all these things shall be finished.
The daily sacrifice is not mentioned in 2 Thessalonians,
the second chapter, but we can see a record of the
same abominable act being perpetrated in this portion
of Scripture. I believe both scriptures are speaking of
the very same time period, and the same oppressive,
and defiant acts against the Church, and the name and
Son-ship of Jesus.
2 Thess. 2:3-12
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day
shall not come, except there come a falling away first
(a decline, approach termination), and that man of sin
be revealed, the son of perdition (one who comes to
utter ruin, and eternal damnation);
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is
called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God
sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he
Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told
you these things?
And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be
revealed in his time.
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he
who now letteth will let (hindereth, will hinder, and prevent
from proceeding) until he be taken out of the way (made
absent, removed from his position).
And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord
shall consume with the Spirit of his mouth, and shall
destroy with the brightness of his coming:
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan
with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all
deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish;
because they received not the love of the truth, that they
might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion,
that they should believe a lie: that they all might be
damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in
We can see the shadows of darkness moving in and
lurking in the world today. Those who use the gospel as
a cloak to cover their sins are being uncovered, and the
shame of their nakedness is bringing disgrace upon the
Christian realm. It leaves the Christian and sinner alike
standing aghast, and feeling a deep sense of disgust.
The fall of these stars (ministers) from their heavenly
post plunges the world into greater darkness, and draws
closer that hour in time when the "daily sacrifice is taken
away." A time when Jesus is set at naught (reduced to
nothing in the eyes of the world) and man thinks to reach
God by another way (a false religion or doctrine); and by
this establishes the damnable lie that will allow the Anti-
christ, the great false prophet, to exalt himself to stand
in the place of mediator between God and man: and to
even stand in the place of God.
And we find more and more today that true holiness and
the miracle working power of God are being rejected.
Those who believe in living a Christ-like life make them-
selves a prey, and become the victims of scorn and of
ridicule. The world today is bewildered by the maze of
doctrines spread out before it; and this bewilderment
prepares the way for an uncomplicated conclusion to be
reached. But this simplicity of doctrine is nothing more
than a distortion of truth and facts concerning the gospel
of Christ, perpetrated by Satan to deceive the gullible
and unsuspecting world.
Beware of any doctrine that attempts to replace Jesus as
the Christ, as the Messiah, as Lord, as the Son of God,
or as the mediator between God and man.
