Sanctuary Brought Low
There was also another reason for this cleansing, or restoring of the temple. In Daniel chapter eight verses nine through 13 we find the worldwide pagan "Christian" church doing several things.
1. It grew until it reached the host of heavens.
2. It threw some of the starry host down to earth.
3. It trampled on them.
4. It set itself up as great as the Prince of the host (Jesus Christ). (Jesus Christ: Acts 5:31)
5. It took away the daily sacrifice from Jesus.
6. The place of the sanctuary was brought low.
7. The daily sacrifices were given over to it.
8. Truth was thrown to the ground.
