Significant Words and Comments:
Commentary on Daniel 11:27-28 (9 November 2007): “Both of [better, again or repeatedly] these kings’ hearts shall be to do mischief.” The Hebrew describes these kings as being determined to destroy others. Propounding lies [among them the conviction that they can rule the whole earth, which is directly opposite the stated words of Yehuveh] and opposing reconciliation or unity with Yehuveh’s people, these kings cannot succeed. They are coming up against Yehuveh Himself: “Yehuveh will take vengeance on His adversaries, and He reserveth wrath for His enemies.” Nahum 1:2.
“They shall speak lies at one table,” in Hebrew states “they will discuss deception to bring about widespread unity,” that is, national leaders gather, seeking to establish a unified global government, will discuss the arguments they might use to convince the masses to submit to their dictates. “But,” praise Yehuveh, “it shall not prosper.” Revelation 17:12 is clear that “these kings” “receive power as kings one hour with the beast” before being brought down. Compare Revelation 18:10, 17, 19 which also say the financial system falls in one hour.
“For yet the end shall be at the time appointed,” or at the appointed time [mo'ed, H4150]. This appointment is not necessarily a Sabbath, New Moon, nor annual festival. Mo'ed is being used as it was when Saul was seeking David’s life and Jonathan agreed to query his father regarding the threat. Having affirmed that David was right about Saul’s determination to kill him, “Jonathan went out to the field at the time appointed [mo'ed, H4150] with David,” a time only four or five days after a New Moon. 1 Samuel 20:35. Compare the use of mo'ed in Daniel 11:29 and 11:35.
“Then shall he return into his land with great riches,” is still speaking of these kings which have gathered to bring about global unity and to resolve the collapsing global economy. He is an assumed pronoun which here more likely is referring to they, all the kings which have met in counsel. They leave the counsel representing and controlling the major amounts of the world’s wealth, but only for a very short time longer.
“And his heart shall be against the holy covenant,” again speaks of the heart-attitudes of the global leaders who have gathered to establish a global government. “He [they] shall do exploits, and return to his [their] own land [lands].”
