The Prophecies of Daniel and Revelation Illustrated  
1 The Timeline of Daniel and Revelation
The story begins in 605 BC with Daniel a captive in Babylon. Daniel’s first dream of the great image is the figure of a man. ‘The great image’ of the man is the foundation of the story.  It is a representation of all the kingdoms of the world until the Second Coming of Jesus.
[pdf]
2 The Great Image of Daniel 2:31-35
God uses metals to show the value of each kingdom starting with gold, which is very precious; and ending with iron mixed with clay that is worthless. As time passes the kingdoms of the earth degenerate morally and financially from precious as gold to worthless as iron mixed with clay. The kingdom of iron and clay represents the last generation of the world just before Jesus comes. What is the strength or value of a building or machine of iron mixed with clay?
[view]
3 "The Great Image of Daniel 2:31-35 is a 'part' of the world that represents 'the whole world.' The way God treated the kings and the inhabitants of the Mediterranean area represents how God loves and disciplines all His children in the entire world."
 
[view]
4 Daniel 2:34 'While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It was moving at the speed of light from the heavens.'
This phrase means the end of the world, but the end will not occur by the hands of people. Jesus, the Rock, will bring this world to an end.
[view]
5 'The Rock [Christ] struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay.'
The Rock represents Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords coming on His white horse, in Revelation 19:11, to save the saints and destroy all earthy kingdoms that are worthless as iron mixed with clay. Then Jesus sets up His everlasting kingdom.
[view]
6 Daniel 2:34 '...and smashed them.'
The Rock represents Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords coming on His white horse, in Revelation 19:11, to save the saints and destroy all earthy kingdoms that are worthless as iron mixed with clay. Then Jesus sets up His everlasting kingdom.
[view]
7 'Daniel 2:45  This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands - a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces. "The great God has shown the king what will take place in the future. The dream is true and the interpretation is trustworthy." [view]
8 Daniel 2:35 '...[The Rock - Christ] became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.'
[Christ’s kingdom is global] The ‘Rock’ breaks all the different metals at the same time. This means that all the different kingdoms will be present at the end by their cultures, traditions, religions and politics. The beast of Revelation 13:1-2 is the global crisis government of the future Great Tribulation, which is a composite beast of the past
[view]
9 "Four Winds are a Global Event."
Daniel 7:2 Daniel said: “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven [global] churning up the great sea. Four great beasts [kingdoms], each different from the others, came up out of the sea [many people].
[view]
10 Babylon 605 B.C.
“The first was like a lion [Babylon 605 BC], and it had wings of an eagle [fast]. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a man, and the heart of a man [like King Saul] was given to it.”
[view]
11 Medo-Persia 538 B.C.
“And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear [Medo-Persia 538 BC]. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, ‘Get up and eat you fill of flesh!’
[view]
12 Greece 331 B.C.
“After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard [Greece 331 BC]. And on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. This beast had four heads [four generals], and it was given authority to rule.”
[view]
13 Pagan Rome 168 BC
“”After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast [Pagan Rome 168 BC] –terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth [like the legs of the image]; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the other former beasts, and it had ten horns [division of Rome 476 AD].
[view]
14 Papal Rome 538 AD to 1798 AD
“While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one [papal Rome 533 AD], which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted [538 AD] before it [three kingdoms]. The horn had eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth that spoke boastfully [ruled for 1,260 years 1798 AD].”
[view]
15 Daniel 7:9-10  "As I looked, "thrones were set in place [in 1798AD], and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was a white as snow; the color of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze. A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him. Thousands upon thousands attended him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. The court was seated, and the book were opened." [view]
16 A Restraining Order Against the Little Horn 1798
The scene is dated by the Ancient of Days passing a restraining order to stop the persecution of the papacy against the saints that lasted 1,260 years [Daniel 7:25]. Look at Daniel 7:21-22 " As I watched, this horn was raging war against the saints and defeating them, until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the kingdom"
[view]
17 Judgment of the World 1844 AD
The date that God chose to judge each person and cleanse the sanctuary of each person’s sins was set by God before the world began in 1844 AD or two thousand there hundred years from the date of Medo-Persian King, Artaxerxes, signed the decree to release Israel to go home and finish rebuilding Jerusalem. The judgment of the world is done by the process of cleansing the sanctuary. As each person is forgiven throughout their lives – all of their sins are transferred to the altars in the heavenly sanctuary
[view]
18 Jesus starting the judgment of mankind with Abel being the first to be judged
Beginning in 1844 Jesus reviewed the life of Abel, the first person to die, and Abel’s sins were cleansed from the sanctuary because he had faith in the Saviour; thus Abel was sealed with eternal life. Then Jesus opened the books of the next person’s life and so forth down through the centuries of time sealing some with eternal life and condemning others with eternal death.
[view]
19 Horn Boasts Again in the Future Great Tribulation
Satan, the little horn of Daniel 8:11, appears physically, masquerading as Jesus. Jesus allows Satan, masquerading as God on earth, to cast Truth to the ground for the purpose of creating the greatest possible contrast between truth and lies. Those that worship Satan are lost and those who worship God are saved; therefore the cleansing of the sanctuary comes to an end by the choices each person makes.
[view]
20 Jesus Burns the Beast at His Secong Coming
The story of apocalyptic prophecy begins with the Kingdom of Babylon in 605 BC, and ends with the burning of the beast in the first
lake of fire, that is created by Jesus with the seventh plague of sulfur bombs, just prior to His Second Coming [Revelation 19:11-21].
[view]
21 Abel - Genesis 4
All the examples of Abel, Noah, Abraham sacrificing lambs, and the story of Abraham sacrificing his son Isaac, was to teach Israel that God was going to send His Son to give His life for the sins of the world – to pay the debt of sin, which is death. By the time of Jesus, Israel had completely lost the meaning of the evening and morning sacrifice that foreshadowed the Messiah’s death.
[view]
22 Abraham as God the Father & Isaac as Jesus the Son of God
All the examples of Abel, Noah, Abraham sacrificing lambs, and the story of Abraham sacrificing his son Isaac, was to teach Israel that God was going to send His Son to give His life for the sins of the world – to pay the debt of sin, which is death. By the time of Jesus, Israel had completely lost the meaning of the evening and morning sacrifice that foreshadowed the Messiah’s death.
[view]
23 God's Original Plan
Jesus was born to reveal the love of the Father and to die to redeem the world from sin. Jesus would have voluntarily walked into the temple on Passover, giving His life freely for the sins of the world. The High Priest would have been in agony – his eyes would have been filled with tears streaming down his face as he pierced the throat of Jesus. Then on the third day Jesus would have been raised from the dead, and Israel would have taken the gospel to the entire world.
[view]
24 Israel's Leaders Murdered the Son of God
It was not God’s plan for Israel’s leaders to murder His Son. But the Jewish leaders hated the truth. They had become so self-righteous in their own eyes they had no need of a Saviour; thus they rejected the altogether lovely character of Jesus. They were not interested in truth or being redeemed from sin. They wanted money, power, prosperity, fancy houses, and national supremacy – they wanted to be the ones ruling, and not to be ruled. Literal Israel missed the birth of Jesus and His anointing because they were teaching the traditions of men just like the churches today. Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD because Israel had rejected and murdered the Saviour of the world, their Creator.
[view]
25 The Birth of Jesus & The Dragon - 4 BC Birth of Jesus & The Devil's Attempt to Kill Baby Jesus
This prophecy of Revelation 12:1-6 begins in 4 BC. A picture is worth a thousand words. Even though Mary was chosen by God to bring Jesus into the world, the glorious, cosmic picture of the woman clothed with the glory of God represents much more than the mother of Jesus – the woman represents not only God’s church on earth, but the church of the entire universe anticipating Christ’s birth. The life of Jesus has saved millions of unfallen worlds from the fear and doubt created by the intruder of sin. Lucifer’s hideous behavior has answered their questions concerning Lucifer’s accusations against God.
[view]
26 30 AD Christ's Ascension to God's Throne
After the ministry of Jesus, He ascended back to heaven in AD 30. Jesus had defeated the devil by His life and death on the cross as the second Adam. Jesus redeemed Adam’s failure by living a perfect life while being tempted as a man. Jesus paid the price necessary to redeem the human race from eternal death by His death on the cross.
[view]
27 1260 Years of Papal Persecution 538-1798 AD
The Roman Catholic Church ruled with cruel and absolute power. If you dared to disagree with Papal Rome you did it at the risk of being tortured and then burned at the stake. This prophecy shows what the world was like when religious leaders controlled worship of God with the use of civil power. God allowed Papal persecution to continue for 1,260 years to keep the church pure [Daniel 7:25].

[view]
28 Napoleon Put the Pope in Prison 1798 AD - Persecution Ended
The persecution ended when Jesus sent Napoleon to put the pope in prison in 1798 as predicted by Daniel 7:25 which inflicted a deadly wound upon the Roman Catholic Church.
[view]
29 30 AD War in Heaven
Revelation 12: 7-8  
"And there was war in heaven: Michael [Jesus] and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon [Lucifer the devil] fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.”  On resurrection morning in 30 AD Jesus ascended back to heaven and war broke out between Michael [Jesus] and the dragon [Lucifer]. Lucifer had been previously cast out of heaven over four thousand years before this time, but had regained access to heaven by causing Adam to fall and taking his place in the heavenly counsel [Job 1].
[view]
30 30 AD Evil Angels Cast into the Abyss
After Jesus was resurrected in 30 AD He returned to heaven and fought Lucifer, the angel of hate that Jesus had created for a service of love. Then Jesus [Michael] threw Satan and his evil angels out of heaven the second time, but this time they were cast into the prison of the Abyss to wait on death row for their execution. They were all guilty of high treason for attempting to overthrow the government of God and instigating the murder of the Son of God.
[view]
31 The Jailhouse of the Abyss
The prison of the Abyss limits Satan’s activities compared to his previous powers displayed in Job 1, the New Testament, and other books, but he is still allowed to tempt men into sinning. After 30 AD Satan corrupted the apostolic church into the Roman Catholic Church. After the Catholic Church received total sovereignty from Emperor Justinian over all the matters in 533 AD it persecuted the Protestants that worshipped God according to the Holy Bible. The Roman Catholic Church did not allow anyone to disagree with its teachings on penalty of being burned at the stake. The persecution continued for 1,260 years ending just as Daniel 7:25 predicted when Jesus sent Napoleon to put the pope in prison in 1798 AD.
[view]
32 33 AD Stephen Stoned - Early Christian Persecution
The four hundred and ninety years of Daniel 9:24 was Israel’s last opportunity to become a spiritual nation, but they failed because the leaders of Israel loved the worship of men more than they loved God. The leaders rejected the Messiah and murdered him, but God was merciful and He gave Israel the second half of the seventieth week to repent from the murder of their Creator by the testimony of His resurrection. They fought God Himself by persecuting the followers of Jesus. The stoning of Stephen in 33 AD was the end of the seventieth week and the end of literal Israel’s sacred opportunity.
[view]
33 538-1798 AD Papal Persecution
By 538 AD Satan had totally corrupted the early apostolic church into what became the Roman Catholic Church. Catholicism taught salvation by works and sold indulgences for money, which automatically forgave sins of adultery, lies, etc., similar to the Pha r isees in the time of Jesus [Mark 7]. The Protestants were persecuted for teaching that salvation comes by faith in Jesus alone. This greatly undermined the authority of the Roman Church and reduced their revenue. The persecution against Protestants ended in 1798 AD when Napoleon put the pope in prison where he died. Then Satan went off in a rage to plan his next war in our near future against all those that keep the Commandments of God and hold the testimony of Jesus in their heart.
[view]
34 1500's Saints Fled to the New World
Satan from his unseen spirit world of the dragon turned the religious leaders of the papacy into a vicious killing machine, hiding their murderous character under the clock of religious piety. After 1492 AD the devil\rquote s plans began to end and he went into a rage in 1798 when the pope was put into prison by Napoleon ending persecution. Satan was doing so well killing Protestants that refused to stay in seclusion, but after America was found, the Papacy that ruled Europe for 1,260 years ended in 1798; so the dragon [Lucifer] goes back to his War Room to plan his next War, which will occur in our near future
[view]
35 Then [in 1798 AD] the dragon [Lucifer] was enraged at the woman [the saints] and went off to make war [to plan future war] against the rest of her offspring - those who obey God's commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus [view]
36 Before Creation & Sin
The Book of Life was written and sealed with seven seals by God the Father, before creation began more than six thousand years ago. It is still sealed shut – it has never been opened since it was written before the first being was created. The Book of Life is not used in the judgment of the world. Some believe that the Book of Life is opened from time to time and names are added and others are blotted out as they are condemned, but this is not true. The judgment of each person is determined by each individual’s choices or behavior. The Book of Life proves that even though God’s foreknowledge is perfect, each person is judged by the choices he/she makes. The Book of Life will prove to everyone in the universe that even though God is all powerful He did not use His power to determine who would be saved or who would be lost. The Book of Life proves the freedom of choice.
[view]
37 Names of all the Living
The Book of Life is a record of God’s perfect foreknowledge of every living being written before creation began.
[view]
38 God Blotted Out the Lost
God saw it all before He began creation. He did everything He could do to save each and every person, but He foresaw that no matter what He did some would choose death instead of life. God blotted out the names of all the lost before creation began and then sealed the book with seven seals. Everyone is judged by the books the angels recorded before the end of the sixth millennium. When the Book of Life is opened at the end of the seventh millennium the entire universe will see that God foresaw it all. Everyone will see God loved the lost just as much as those that choose life instead of death.
[view]
39 God Sealed the Book with Seven Seals
The Book of Life sealed with seven seals will demonstrate the revelation of all that Jesus Christ really is. The first seal is Jesus announcing Himself as Saviour of the world . The second seal is God's Word and the Bible given to the entire world through bible societies. The third seal is the judgment of the world which is the cleansing of the sanctuary [Daniel 8:14]. The fourth seal reveals the authority of Jesus. Jesus sends judgments upon the earth by s ounding the first four trumpets that destroy one-third of the earth and kill twenty-five percent of the global population. The fifth seal is the faith of Jesus is revealed by the saints giving their lives for the word of God and their faith in Jesus. The saints would rather die than break any of God' s commandments. The sixth seal is the climax of the seven bowls of wrath that is God's vengeance against the wicked for persecuting and killing the saints and prophets. When the seventh seal is removed from the Book of Life, the book is opened for the first time since before creation. The entire universe will see that God foresaw it all and they will see the Righteousness and Justice of God.
[view]
40 Then Jesus Began Creation
Many people see Jesus a son of God like sons on earth, but this is not so. Before Creation began the Second member of the Godhead humbled Himself to the position of the angel named Michael. Michael [fully God] worshipped before God the Father to show the proper way to worship God their Creator. The Second Member of the Godhead is called Michael, Jesus, the Prince of the host, the Great Prince, the Christ, the Son of God, Immanuel, the Prince of Peace, the King of Kings, the Rock, the Saviour, the Lamb of God, and the list goers on. Michael is the name that Jesus uses in heaven. Michael became the human called Jesus while He was on earth, but after He ascended back to heaven Jesus is called Michael again. Jesus is the One creating everything that exists.
[view]
41 The Cornonation of Jesus in 1798 AD
Daniel 7:13-14 “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.” Jesus is crowned king in 1798. The coronation of Jesus is so understated and humble that it goes unnoticed by most. Jesus had been in submission to the Father for at least five thousand eight hundred years before He is crowned King in this scene. Those present in the throne scene are: God the Father, the twenty-four elders redeemed from the earth, the four living creatures that represent the Holy Spirit, Jesus the Lamb of God, and a myriad of angels. The Jesus is found worthy to receive the book of seven seals [Book of Life] and to set the stage for beginning the judgment of the world. Each seal Jesus removes from the Book of Life reveals the steps Jesus takes to save as many of His children as possible to the end of the world.
[view]
42 Jesus Found Worthy
The Second member of the Godhead agreed to give His life for this world before Creation began. He first humbled Himself as Michael the arch angel worshiping the Father with Lucifer the other covering Cherubim. After Lucifer sinned by coveting the position belonging only to God, he was cast out of heaven. He became the ruler of the world by causing our first parents to sin. Then Michael the arch angel humbled Himself again by becoming ‘a human,’ the Son of God and a son of humanity. The Almighty God left the universe of indescribable glory to become our brother. After His death and resurrection Jesus continued interceding for all His brothers and sisters pleading His shed blood for the forgiveness of sin. In 1798 the Ancient of Days crowned His Son, the son of humanity, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and He was found worthy to finish the plan of salvation by the process opening the seals on the Lamb’s Book of Life one by one.
[view]
43 There stood A Lamb as if it had been slain. And I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a lamb as it had been slain, ... And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat up[on the throne

Revelation 5:9 “And they sang a new song: “You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.” The following is an outline of the seals; it shows the final steps Jesus takes to finish the plan of salvation, saving the greatest number of people possible.

1.    1st Seal – Jesus revealed Himself as the Saviour of the world by ending Papal persecution in 1798 AD in Europe that had gone on for 1,260years.

2.    2nd Seal – Jesus made the Word of God available to the entire world in 1814 AD.

3.    3rd Seal – Jesus began the judgment of the dead starting with Abel in 1844.

4.    4th Seal – In the near future Jesus will create a global crisis for the purpose of judging all seven billion living people in the world.

5.    Near End of 4th Seal [5th trumpet] –Satan, impersonates Jesus, counterfeiting the second coming of Jesus and tortures those who refuse to worship him into submission.

6.    5th Seal – Jesus, as a last ditch effort, sends His very best saints to give testimony to the truth that causes their death.

7.    6th Seal – Jesus punishes the wicked for killing the saints and the prophets. A one thousand year gap of time is given for the saints to determine the punishment of the wicked and for billions of people to ask Jesus about their lost loved ones.

7th Seal – At the end of the seventh millennium Jesus returns to earth and God raises all the wicked dead since the beginning of time; then God silences the entire universe. God explains everything He did to save each lost person. Then God burns the devil, his demons, the wicked, and the earth to ashes.

[view]
44 First Seal Opened in 1798 AD
Revelation 6:1 I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!”   “A white horse – The white horse is an analogy of the battle fought and won by Jesus our Saviour. He sent Napoleon in 1798 to bring papal persecution to an end.  Papal persecution had gone on for over twelve hundred years by the terrible monster {Rome} with iron teeth and the little horn of Daniel 7:8 {papacy}. Papal persecution began relent because God opened the mouth of the earth in Revelation 12:16 by the discovery of America. The Protestants fled to the land of religious freedom. The end of papal persecution is ‘a part’ representing ‘the whole.’ Just as God revealed His sovereignty in the affairs of men by ending the 1,260 years of papal persecution exactly as He predicted in Daniel 7:25; so Jesus will end the war against the saints on the white horse of Revelation 19:11.
[view]
45 Second Seal Opened in 1814
‘A large sword – the large sword is the Word of God. In 1814 Jesus gave the printed Bible to the world by the American Bible Society, the British Bible Society, and many others. Matthew 10:34-36 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn ‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law – a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.”
[view]
46 Third Seal in 1844
‘Holding a pair of scales in his hand’ – King of Babylon Belshazzar was weighed in the balances and found wanting: Daniel 5:27 ‘You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.’ The pair of balances is the judgment of the world beginning in 1844. The date of 1844 for the beginning the judgment of the world is understood by the cleansing of the sanctuary beginning two thousand three hundred years (Daniel 8:14) after the Medo-Persian King Artaxerxes signed the decree in 457 BC (Daniel 9:24) to release Israel in the first month (Nisan) of the twenty-first jubilee cycle that was on a Sunday year as recorded in Ezra 7 to finish rebuilding the temple and the walls of Jerusalem to make preparation to greet the Messiah. If Israel would have accepted the Messiah the High Priest would have killed Jesus on the altar of burnt offering on Passover. Israel would have participated in finishing evangelizing the world. The process of the judgment of the world is understood by the priest cleansing the sanctuary on the Day of Atonement in Leviticus 16. Two altars were cleansed of Israel’s sin: the golden altar and the altar of burnt offering.
[view]
47 Jesus our Intercessor
In order to understand prophecy it is necessary to understand how God deals with sin. The sanctuary is God’s court room. God’s sanctuary or court room has an order of service, and each piece of furniture in the sanctuary tells us what Jesus is doing, depending on the time He is doing it. The two altars in the sanctuary reveal two different levels of atonement. The altar of burnt offering is for individual forgiveness, and the golden altar is for corporate forgiveness, but at different times the altars have different meaning depending on the time, the date, and the occasion.  The evening and morning intercession of the priest on earth was a living puppet show revealing that Jesus our intercessor has been pleading His blood for this world ever since Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden. The story of prophecy tells us what happens when Jesus ends the continuous intercession at the golden altar (the evening and morning intercession).
[view]
48 A Group Asking Forgiveness Corporately
After the priest has killed and burned the morning lamb and interceded for Israel at the golden altar, a group of people would come to the sanctuary to worship God and ask to forgive their sins. They would bring a young bull to kill showing they really wanted to be forgiven. A bull was very valuable and killing it was a financial loss; thus showing their resolve to be forgiven. Each person would place his hand on the bull’s head and then one person would kill the bull. The priest would catch some blood in a vessel. The bull would be burned on the altar; then the priest would take some of the blood into the Tent of the Meeting {the Holy Place} and put some of the blood on the horns of the golden altar, and the group of people were forgiven {corporate forgiveness}. The Tent of meeting is a tent where several pieces of furniture are kept and it has two compartments divided by a curtain. The first compartment is called the Holy Place and the second is the Most Holy Place. The first room of the Tent of meeting contains the candlesticks, the table of showbread, and the golden altar of incense. A curtain separates the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place where the Ark of the Covenant was kept.  The Ark was a beautiful piece of furniture that contained the original Ten Commandments that God gave Moses on Mount Sinai in 1437 BC after Israel left Egypt. The priest put the blood on the golden altar that stood before the curtain
.
[view]
49 When the priest put the blood on the horns of the golden altar, offering a prayer of intercession, the sins of those people were forgiven and transferred to the golden altar in the sanctuary; thus the sanctuary was contaminated with the sins of Israel day after day
Once a year on the Day of Atonement the sanctuary was cleansed of all the sins for the whole year. When we confess of our sins God forgives us because Jesus gave His life as our substitute. The sanctuary reveals that God so loves the world that He is willing to forgive the world corporately, with the condition that they acknowledge their sins by confession, repentance, and making restitution. The sanctuary also reveals that even though there are billions of people in this world He hears the prayers of a single person {the individual}.
[view]
50 Individual Forgiveness
When an individual went to the sanctuary to ask for forgiveness, he was required to bring a lamb that represented the future death of Jesus. The person laid his hand on the head of the lamb and then cut the lamb’s throat, killing the lamb as he confessed his sins, and his sins were forgiven; thus the sins were transferred to the lamb, representing Jesus dying in his place. Then the priest would take some of the blood and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering thereby transferring the individual’s sins to the altar of burnt offering. It is very important to distinguish the difference between how God deals with sins committed by a group {corporate atonement) and sins committed by a single person {individual atonement}.
