Amy VanGerden:

Amy, I've checked my two Study Bibles that I use "The King James Study Bible" by Liberty University, and "The MacArthur Study Bible" NKJV by Dr. John MacArthur. Both of these Study Bibles in their notes indicate that the prophecies of Isaiah 28 that we have been discussing were fulfilled around 700 B.C. and don't even mention a far fulfillment at the end of the age. So as I stated before, these prophecies were fulfilled during King Hezekiah's reign. I can still go along with a dual fulfillment, however as I said, dual fulfillment's are seldom exactly like the first fulfillment, and often are different enough not to be easily recognized. It is just not accurate to cite these passages as "proof" that Daniel 9:24-27 is referring to a Peace Treaty. I just won't limit myself to believing the word "covenant" in Daniel 9:24-27 can only be a Peace Treaty. The Church is sleeping while waiting for an Israeli-Palestinian Peace Treaty that either may never come about, or could be much further down the end time timeline than expected.
