Daily - Similar to the concept of the continual. Daily activities regarding the sanctuary activities and the daily services of Christians in their daily response to God. In the sanctuary service the root word for daily is "tamid" and is the primary word in continual sacrifice. The Daily also has a prophetic interpretation in Daniel, which, in this writers opinion, is the sanctuary service, the intercessory ministry of Jesus, the covenant relaltionship with God, and the total devotional activities of the Christian church . The Bible indicates that satan, and the wicked, also have daily activities.

 Symbol of God's care for us:

 Jehoiachin is raised up by Evilmerodach of Babylon. Symbol of God's care for His people. II Kings 25:27-30

God sends His prophets to us daily to warn and instruct. Jeremiah 7:25

God provides our daily bread. Matthew 6:11

The Lord added to the apostolic church daily. Acts 2:47; 16:5


The Christian's response to God:

Daily to perform our vows to God. Psalms 61:8

Bless God daily for He loads us with benefits. Psalms 68:19

Praise God daily. Psalms 72:15

The Christians daily crys out to God. Psalms 86:3; 88:9

Christians to encourage one another daily. Hebrews 3:13

See Continual


The Daily in Daniel:

The little horn takes away the daily - tamid. Daniel 8:11

The little horn uses a host against the daily - tamid. Daniel 8:12

How long is the vision about the daily - tamid and the        transgression of desolation, and both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled. Daniel 8:13,14 (2300 days until the       restoration/cleansing of the sanctuary.)

The king of the north will be against the holy covenant(v.28,30,32), he shall pollute the sanctuary of strength(v. 31) and shall take away the daily(v. 31), and shall place the abomination that makes desolate(v. 31). Daniel 11:28-32

From the time that the daily is taken away and the abomination that makes desolate is set up shall be 1290 days/years. Daniel 12:11

The prophetic process of taking away of the daily in Daniel 8-12 is a revelation of how sin will attack any process in which redemption comes through. The primary issues in Daniel regarding the taking away of the daily is for satan to influence his people to interrupt the sanctuary process. Satan does this by presenting error to take the eyes of the people off their Great High Priest and place their focus on sinful man. (See Steps to Christ 71-73). Satan accomplished his purposes by getting Israel to reject Jesus and accept Barabbas. Israel rejected the ministry of Jesus in the Holy Place and rejected the ministry of God's people from AD 31-34. The Christian church accepted the error of the priesthood of the papacy. Protestants rejected the heavenly ministry of Jesus in the Most Holy Place. In 1844 the sanctuary message was brought back to the forefront by the SDA church but now she to has difficulty with the sanctuary message. This message of the daily ministration of Jesus for His people will continue to be a central pillar of hope and a central pillar of doctrinal and spiritual debate. Let us keep our eyes fixed on our High Priest, and His ministry for us in heaven and here on earth. CO(Collectors opinion)


Taking away of the daily:

Egyptians take away straw from the Isrealites ability to make bricks. Exodus 5:1-23

The Jews disobey God, and trust in the temple rather than in God.  They do not allow themselves to be corrected. Babylon finally comes to destroy Jerusalem, the temple, take away the sanctuary services, and set up an abomination of desolation. Jeremiah 7:1-30; II Chronicles 36:1-21

Jews take away Jesus who was daily in the temple teaching. Matthew 26:55; Mark 14:49; Luke 19:47; 22:53

Jesus takes away the daily sacrifice, (the need for the sacrificial   system came to an end with the death of the true Lamb of God).   Hebrews 7:26-28; 10:1-14;     Daniel 9:27; Matthew 27:50-51


Satan's daily:

Delilah pressed Samson daily until he violated his Nazarite vow with her. Symbolic of Israels interaction with the heathen. Judges 16:16

Satan's people are daily insinuating the thought of "where is your God?" Psalms 42:10

The evil daily oppress the Christian. Psalms 56:1-2

The foolish man reproaches God daily. Psalms 74:22

Satan's people reproached Jeremiah daily. Jeremiahs 20:7-8

Satan constantly looks for ways to harass God's people. He also attempts to confuse the issues and distract the attention of the people from the sanctuary service. He especially is against the sanctuary service in heaven today. CO


Daily – “The daily service consisted of the morning and evening burnt offering, the offering of sweet incense on the golden altar, and the special offerings for individual sins.” PP 352


Daniel - "In the Revelation all the books of the Bible meet and end. Here is the complement of the book of Daniel. One is a prophecy: the other a revelation. The book that was sealed is not the Revelation, but that portion of the prophecy of Daniel relating to the last days." AA 585


Darkness - Way of the wicked is as darkness. Proverbs 4:19


Darkness- "It is the darkness of misapprehension of God that is enshrouding the world. Men are losing their knowledge of His character." COL 415, DA 22


Darkness – “Through the symbols of the great darkness and the smoking furnace, God had revealed to Abraham the bondage of Israel in Egypt, and had declared that the time of their sojourning should be four hundred years.” DA 32


Daughters of Babylon- "…by her daughters must by symbolized churches that cling to her doctrines and traditions, and follow her example of sacrificing the truth and approval of God in order to form an unlawful alliance with the world." GC 382-383


Day - "…and the evening and the morning were the first day." Genesis 1:5 A day equals a normal 24 hour period.


Day - "After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shalt ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise." Numbers 14:34; Ezekiel 4:6. Other examples of time periods where there has to be more time involved than that of normal time and which a day for a year seems to make more sense: Genesis chapter 5; 6:3; 29:18-30; 47:9; Leviticus 25:1-8; I Samuel 27:7 margin; 29:3; Job 10:5; Psalms 77:5; Daniel 1:5,18; 4:23,34; 8:13-14; 9:2,21-27; 10:1,14; 11:14; 12:11-13; II Thessalonians 2:6-8.


Day - "But beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." II Peter 3:8


Death - A state of experience in which life has ceased to function for the individual. This cessation of life comes as a direct result of cutting oneself off from God through sin. Sin equals death. Only by removing sin can God restore life to the individual and have them live in the presence of a Holy God. Death is the story of how sin destroys and salvation is the story of how God delivers man from death and sin. CO

What was God's original intent with life?

There was to be no hurting or destruction in all of God's kingdom.  Isaiah 11:9

Man was created for the glory of God. Isaiah 43:7

God made man in His image and likeness. Genesis 1:26-27

Man was and is mortal. Job 4:17/Romans 8:11 God was and is  immortal. I Timothy 1:17; I Timothy 6:14-16

Man was granted access to the tree of life to sustain him and allow him to live forever. Genesis 2:9/3:22-24

Man was to sustain his gifts on condition of obeying the     commandment of God not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. To disobey was to incur death, to obey was to sustain life. Genesis 2:16-17

God saw that everything He had made was very good. Genesis   1:31

How was man created?

Man was created from the dust of the earth. Genesis 2:7

See Clay.

When man was formed he had no life until God breathed the breath of life into him. When the form and the breath were together man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7 See also Ezekiel 37:1-14

Man was placed in the garden to dress and keep it. Genesis 2:15

Man was to have dominion over all the earth and living things in the earth. Genesis 1:28; 2:19

Man was to rule the things of the earth for God. Psalms 8:3-6

What changed the process?

Adam and Eve chose to rebel against Jesus and to obey Satan. Genesis 3:1-6

 Sin separated man from God. Isaiah 59:2

Adam and Eve became servants of satan. II Peter 2:19; Romans 6:16; John 8:34; Matthew 6:24

Jesus stated that they must incur the death penalty and return to dust. Genesis 2:17; Ezekiel 18:4; Genesis 3:19

Man was cut off from access to the tree of life. Genesis 3:22-24

Death passed to all men. Romans 5:12

What happens when a person dies?

The creation process reverses. The soul ceases to function and the body returns to dust and the breath of life returns to God. Psalms 104:29; Ecclesiastes 12:7; Genesis 3:19; 2:7

Man goes into a state of being that the Bible compares to sleep. John 11:1-14; Luke 8:49-53; Acts 7:58-60; Acts 13:36; I Corinthians 15:5,18,51; Ephesians 5:14; I Thessalonians 4:13-16; II Peter 3:4; Deuteronomy 31:16; II Samuel 7:12; I Kings 1:21; 2:10; 11:43; 15:24; II Kings 16:20; Job 7:21

The dead do not think. Psalms 146:3-4

The dead do not know anything or feel any love, hatred, envy, or have any knowledge, wisdom, or works. Ecclesiastes 9:1-10

What is God's plan to solve the death problem?

God promised Adam and Eve the He would come and address the serpent and the serpent's sting of death. Genesis 3:15; I Corinthians 15:1-4, 15-23, 54-57

This promise was given before the foundation of the world.  Revelation 13:8

The Godhead decided on the time when Jesus would come to rescue us. Galatians 4:4-5; Romans 5:6

Even when we were sinners Jesus died for us. Romans 5:6-8

Jesus asked us to look to Him like the serpent on the pole that Moses erected that all who look to Him might be healed of the serpent's sting by His death. Numbers 21:4-9; John 3:14-15

Jesus died for us and resurrected for us to show us how it will be for us, and to show His power over death.  He showed His power over death in Himself and promised that He would resurrect us from death as well. I Corinthians 15:3-4, 12-23; 50-57; I Thessalonians 4:13-18

This resurrection will come in the time that the Godhead has decided will be best for His plans. Acts 17:26

Jesus is the resurrection and the life. John 11:23-27

How does the resurrection solve the death problem? See Resurrection.

God recreates the soul as modeled in Ezekiel 37:1-14

God has displayed the resurrection in Moses, Lazarus, Jesus, and the multitude that are resurrected at the resurrection of Jesus. Jude 9; Matthew 17:1-4; John 11:21-45; John 20:1-17; Matthew 27:51-53

There are two main resurrections, the righteous and the wicked. John 5:28-29

These two resurrections are separated by 1000 years. Revelation 20:4-6

The first resurrection takes place at the coming of Jesus. I Thessalonians 4:13-17

The wicked want to hide from Jesus for they have the same  response that Adam and Eve had when Jesus came to them.   Genesis 3:6-11; Revelation 6:14-17

The living wicked (all those who are not found in the book of life Revelation13:8 and 20:15) are destroyed by the brightness of Jesus' coming and the dead wicked do not live again until the 1000 years are past. II Thessalonians 2:8; Revelation 20:5

The living righteous and the resurrected dead are caught up in the clouds with Jesus and are taken to heaven. I Thessalonians 4:15- 17; Revelation 20:4; John 14:1-3

How does the resurrection change the dead and the living?

Job states even though his body will be decomposed and eaten by worms that with his own eyes he shall see his Redeemer in the latter days. Job 19:25-27

The righteous will awake and sing and praise God that He has come. Isaiah 26:19

The righteous shall have a body like Jesus'. I John 3:1-2; John   20:19-29

The righteous will have resurrected, incorruptible, and immortal bodies. I Corinthians 15:42-54

Our access to the tree of life will be restored. Genesis 3:22-24; Ezekiel 47:12; Revelation 22:1-2

 The righteous will reign with God forever. Revelation 22:5

Does Satan try to interfere with God's plan for death?

Satan denies that the wicked will die by disobeying God. Genesis 3:1-5

Satan encourages people to try to communicate with the dead. These are like the witch of Endor. I Samuel 28; I Chronicles 10:13-14

When the wicked are in rebellion they go to forbidden channels to communicate with things that God has commanded us to stay away from, especially witches, wizards, sorcerers, and necromancers- people who attempt to communicate with the dead. II Chronicles 33:6; Deuteronomy 18:9-14; Leviticus 19:31; 20:1-6,27; Isaiah    8:19-20; Revelation 21:8 See Witch and Wizard

Are people in hell right now?

Both the righteous and the wicked are in the grave. John 5:28-29

The wicked will be gathered at the harvest and burned after the end of the world. Matthew 13:30,39-40

The righteous are resurrected at the second coming of Jesus but the rest of the dead did not live again until the 1000 years were finished. I Thessalonians 4:13-17; Revelation 20:5

The wicked are resurrected to face judgment. John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:5,11-13.15

All the wicked, since they are not written in the book of life, are cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:15

Do the wicked have everlasting life to burn in the fire forever?

The righteous are granted the gift of eternal life, the wicked are to die. Romans 6:23; Genesis 2:17; Ezekiel 18:4

The righteous are granted eternal life and they do live in eternal burnings without pain or suffering. Romans 6:23; Isaiah 33:14-15; Daniel 3:20-28

The wicked, including satan and his angels, are cast into the lake of fire and are consumed, and turned into ashes. Revelation 20:15,9,10; Matthew 25:41; Ezekiel 28:14-18; Malachi 4:1,3

What about the texts that say that the wicked will suffer forever in eternal fire?

Eternal fire is that fire that can not be put out until it accomplishes its task. Jude 7; Genesis 19:24; II Peter 2:6

In Jeremiah 17:27 God states that if the people do not change their ways He will kindle a fire in the gates of Jerusalem and it shall not be quenched. In II Chronicles 36:19-21 Nebuchadnezzar burns the temple and the walls of Jerusalem to fulfill the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah. That fire burned until it got the job done. God does not grant the gift of eternal life to the wicked.

How about Lazarus and the rich man?

Jesus did not talk to the people without parables. Mark 4:11,33-34

Jesus was talking in parables in his discourse to the publicans, sinners, Pharisees and scribes in Luke 14:1-3; 15:1-3

The story of Lazarus and the rich man is a parable and therefore cannot be taken to violate all the principles of Scripture, especially those Scriptures pertaining to the subject of the state of the dead. It is a story that tries to make a point to the one being taught. That point is that the rich Pharisees cannot depend on riches to get them to heaven. They must obey the Word of God in order to escape fires of hell at the resurrection like the poor "gentile" Lazarus did. Luke 16:28-31. It would appear that there were people in the audience who had the belief that one could pray to Abraham to be saved. They had the idea that Abraham was alive and interceding with God for “Abraham’s children”.  Jesus also wanted to show that even if a “Lazarus” were to come back from the dead that those who disbelieved the Word of God would also reject the “Lazarus”. This is revealed in John 12:9-11

Did Paul want to leave his body and go to heaven to be with Jesus II Corinthians 5:8?

Paul expected to get his reward at the second coming of Jesus and at Paul's resurrection. II Timothy 4:6-8

Paul is comparing his body with an earthly house - the natural   body. II Corinthians 5:1, I Corinthians 15:42-49

Paul was expecting a heavenly body that is incorruptible. II  Corinthians 5:1; I Corinthians 15:42-54

Paul wanted that heavenly body. II Corinthians 5:2; I Corinthians 15:43-49

Paul wanted the mortal body swallowed up by the immortal body. II Corinthians 5:4; I Corinthians 15:50-54

Paul knew that while he retained his earthly body he would not be in heaven. II Corinthians 5:6; I Corinthians 15:44-54

Paul was willing and ready to die as the Lord saw fit so that he could get to the resurrection and be with the Lord. II Corinthians 5:8; II Timothy 4:6-8

Will sin and death come up again?

God will make a complete end of sinners, and death itself will be consumed in the lake of fire. Revelation 20:9-15

Jesus will create a new heaven and a new earth because the old had been consumed and passed away. Revelation 21:1

God says that satan will never be again. Ezekiel 28:19

God will burn up the wicked and affliction shall not rise up the second time. Nahum 1:10,9
