Saints should say “Holy Ones” – saints was added to Tanakh by Christian scribes to reinforce the notion that this verse does not attribute to “Jews” but Christians.
“But at the last Daniel came in before me, whose name was Belteshazzar, according to the name of my god, and in whom is the spirit of the holy H6922 gods: and before him I told the dream, saying,”
I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and an holy one (Angel) H6922 came down from heaven;
Angels are the watchers and accusers of men – to record what we say and do.
“Saints” is a newly made word after 1st century AD, therefore could not have been used by the scribe for Daniel in Aramaic. This is a newly described Greek rendition.
So we know verses:
Have been manipulated to translate “Saints”
The correct version is “Holy Ones”
Definition: most holy thing, a saint. sacred (physically, pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially, consecrated):—(most) holy (one, thing), saint.
Saint, therefore, like Sage in Talmud, is a new word describing a most holy thing.
Again, “Saint” was added AFTER 1st century AD and was not a word in 560 BC during the time of Daniel.
The word Holy is the correct version – Saint, is an addition.
The key phrase where we see the manipulation of the text is Daniel 7:25:
“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints (Holy Ones) of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time (1260 days).”
The key note is this phrase “to change times and laws,” which refers to Torah laws for Israel.
Lets take a look at these two words which are critical for understanding the hidden mysteries of the verse.
The word times, H2165 – זְמָן – Aramaic ze-mawn is a set time, season, such as feast days, Yom Kippur, Pesach (passover) for Israel, not “times of the world, or Christian traditions.”
In Greek, we find this word as καιρός (ky-ross – roll the r) which means a measure of time, a larger or smaller portion of time, what time brings, the state of the times, the things and events of time.
Both the Aramaic and Greek translation of times correlate to tractate in Talmud and the complete manipulation of times and seasons over the centuries by false scribes.
The Hebrew Masoretic Text (10th century AD) timetables of events versus Talmud Seder Olam (14th century, but argued as 3rd century AD) is completely different – yet each Jewish scholar of their times claimed to be the true time frame of events, which proves the manipulation of time as written in Daniel.
This could not be more clear by the pure manipulation of the Jewish calendar over the centuries, which is not worth discussing here as it is evident to any student.
The ADDING of days to Pesach (8 days instead of 7), karbanot manipulation, Jubilee manipulation, Yom Kippur manipulation of forgiving all sins and oaths without karbanot is ridiculous and a clear manipulation of times and laws.
There is no point, but I could go on and on writing a book on manipulation of times and laws – when it comes to agriculture, divorce, date of creation, or mitzvot on the changing of times and laws by false rabbi and scribes.
“Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.” Deuteronomy 4:2
So what is Daniel 7:18 talking about – angels, saints, or Israel?
One thing we know the verse is not talking about – is “Jews.”
The word Jew, or the German Juden, describes the tribe of Judah. The phrase “Holy Ones” is not describing the tribe of Judah, or the Lion King, the HaMashiach, which comes from the tribe of Judah. Jesus is the Messiah or Lord over all.
Holy Ones of YHWH are generally referred to as those who serve YHWH with all their heart and soul. Thus, the shema prayer:
And as Jesus has said,
But He answered and said to the one who told Him, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?” And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.” Matthew 12:47-50
So within the confines of misinterpretation of the Book of Daniel has led to lofty predictions of “end time theory” and who it is described as the “chosen people” by both Jews and Christians alike.
Where in fact, YHWH had made it clear all along.
“He who has an ear, let him hear.”
