Daniel 7 - Interactive - "alterations in times and in law"

Yesterday, I published another interactive presentation of thematic symmetry online, one in a series that pertains to our continuing passionate inquiry into where we are now on the Lord's schedule of appointments. I chose to analyze the thematic symmetry of this chapter because it conceals and reveals important things about time.

Last month, the Lord indicated to Aaron and I that the book of Daniel held keys to understanding this very unique season so we're using all the tools at our disposal, which the Lord has so generously provided. Applying the techniques of structural analysis alongside an investigation into the meaning of the Hebrew texts is already yielding fruit, and we're really just getting started.

I'm going to make a few observations about Daniel 7 and this fascinating chapter's unusual symmetry.

First, this chapter contains an instance of what I call the keystone pattern, which is a time code. There's actually a nested embedding of the pattern, and you can explore what's been written here for more detail: The Keystone Pattern - Three Things Then the Fourth (Daniel 7 - The Fourth Beast).

A verse of notable interest is Daniel 7:25.

He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. ~ Daniel 7:25

“They,” possibly refers to the saints but definitely to times and laws. That is not about a former Pope's institution of Sunday Law, changing the Sabbath from day 7 to day 1, or about changing holidays or time zones or calendars. Religious or moral laws have been a traditional focus but the symmetry of the passage, which reveals the highly structured context for our guidance, should make it plain that it's time itself, the familiar continuity of space-time that is the subject, and that the law is not the Mosaic Law but rather the natural laws of physics. In the days of Noah, a special sign of the bow in the clouds was given, and that bears witness to how changes had been made to physical laws involving light and its travel through the sky, a heaven above earth.

If you explore the interactive presentation you'll discover that there are 4 elements highlighted when you hover your mouse cursor over the interesting line of verse 25.

9 “I kept looking until thrones were set up, and the Ancient of Days took His seat; His vesture was like white snow and the hair of His head like pure wool. His throne was ablaze with flames, its wheels were a burning fire. 10 “A river of fire was flowing and coming out from before Him; Thousands upon thousands were attending Him, and myriads upon myriads were standing before Him;
18 But the saints of the Highest One will receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, for all ages to come.’
21 I kept looking, and that horn was waging war with the saints and overpowering them 22 until the Ancient of Days came and judgment was passed in favor of the saints of the Highest One, and the time arrived when the saints took possession of the kingdom.
and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.

During this past Pesah, when the Lord was pouring out such favor in that season of such high expectation, our attention was given to the trending highlighting of verses numbered 21 and 22, in many chapters. The pair in Matthew 24 is one example. Here in Daniel 7, the symmetry identifies the pair as a element of some note.

Compare verses 9 and 10 to the description of the throne vehicle in Ezekiel chapters 1 and 10. The throne was that of the Ancient of Days, a title that has everything to do with time. The river of fire is interesting, with the use of the standard Hebrew words for river and fire. The river of fire is like a river of water, a metaphorical river of time. See Revelation 22:1. Think about the “lake of fire” as a place where time is not experienced as we do in these bodies in this time-space realm. With the throne ablaze with flames and wheels that were a burning fire, this was a fiery other-dimensional contraption, a time-space machine.

There's lots more to be said about all this. Lord willing.

Time and physical laws are not going to be continuing as they have, and are quite probably already in flux. Have you been paying attention to how you perceive the passage of time now, or have you noticed what others can be overheard saying about how time strangely seems to either be passing very slowly, or quickly? When CERN's LHC was in operation in 2012, we wonder if there wasn't already some change manifesting.


  1. Regarding changes manifesting, take a look at Youtubers ( and ( regarding the Berenstein Bears. If changes to our time have been made, there would be no evidence except what exists in our memories. Satan may be making small non-consequential changes as a 'handwave' way to notifying his disciples, but he can't risk major changes at the moment because of ripple effects (my theory). The other reason he can't make major changes yet is because he is restrained, and only permitted to do minor stuff (apparently). Making too many major changes with awake and watching Christians still here could blow the cover of the many deceptions he plans to use, and thus he has to not draw too much attention to them until they're gone.
