Mt. 24:15 “When you shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place, whosoever reads, let him understand.”
Jesus Wants Us to Understand Daniel
As seen in the verse above, in mid stride, during His prophecy sermon on Daniel’s prophecy, Jesus abruptly stops and offers this prayer, “let the reader understand” (Mt. 24:15). This gives us pause to think… Jesus prayed for us to understand Daniel’s prophecy! Why would he do that? Why would Jesus stop in midstream of explaining future events to pray that his listeners would understand Daniel’s message?
Increase Your Understanding
Jesus understood the value of Daniel’s prophecy better than anyone. Much of it was about Him! He understood people’s concerns and how they would need to know what’s going on in the last days and how the events of Daniel will impact the whole world. That’s why he prayed for their spiritual understanding. Jesus wants us to get Daniel’s message! Can we do anything less?
