How Did the Triumph of the Catholic Creed
Take Away the Daily?
In identifying the "taking away" of the "daily" we must look for some "form of perversion
and blasphemy [that] strikes at the central idea of the work of Christ as the mediator
between the sinner and his God." George McCready Price, The Greatest of the Prophets, p. 173.
The Bible teaches that "there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him." 1 Corinthians 8:6.
"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." 1 Timothy 2:5. See also John 17:3; Ephesians 4:6.
The Bible also teaches that "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." John 1:18.
As the only begotten Son of God, Jesus is the only Mediator between God and men. "Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more exellent name than they." Hebrews 1:3, 4.
"For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily." Colossians 2:9. "For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell." Colossians 1:19.
"For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself," "whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds." John 5:26; Hebrews 1:2.
"Seeing he ever liveth to make intercession" (Hebrews 7:25), mediation is His continual role. These are the principles which make up the concept of "the daily" in the book of Daniel. (See comments on Daniel 8:11.)
