Christian Author Writer Dan: 12:1: And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

(The purpose of this article is to make people aware of what God says in Daniel chapter 12. The first verse tells us that the Jewish people are in for their worst time of trouble during the end-time events. I say it’s talking about the end-times because it says that at that time all those whose name is written in the book will be delivered. I’m going to use The Amplified Bible as my authority in filling in the blanks and it says that book is the book of Life. Rev: 20:12, which is talking about the end-times, tells of the Book of Life being opened--so though this does not prove it, it does suggest that time frame.

So pleases take note--in the end-times, which I maintain we are living in right now, the Jews are in for their worst time of persecution and in the same time frame those whose names are written in the book of Life will be delivered.)

2-3: And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3: And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

(Vs 2 appears to be talking about the time when the book is opened and agrees with Rev: 20:12. God always quickly assures His people of good things to come when He has to tell them of bad things that are going to happen. He does it here. We have Him warning the Jewish people of a terrible time, but going right on to assure those who hide and abide in Christ (those written in the book of Life) that their reward is forth-coming. He also assures the wicked that their reward is forth-coming.

It says they that are wise shall shine and will turn many to righteousness. That’s shine as in Isa: 60:1: Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.

This ties in with Dan:11:32: And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

Think about this--in the end-times trouble will be mighty, but God’s people will shine and do exploits and turn many to righteousness.)

4-7: But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. 5: Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. 6: And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? 7: And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

(So we can see by these verses that God was talking about the end-times. Notice the part about knowledge. I think that is talking about books, the internet, and even TV. The increase of books has been tremendous in this day. People have access to all knowledge of good and evil on the net. TV teaches how things are made, how to cook, how to do home repairs, etc. These are mighty resources. There’s even a lot of Christian teaching on TV, the net, and in books, but the report is that Christians and Jews do not know their God as they ought.

I believe God had that line put in there to further give us a compass as to the day and the hour that we are living in. All that knowledge out there and yet God’s people have not learned His ways. They have not learned what He is teaching in the Bible. Eph:4:13: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

Verse 7 says, three and one half years, that’s how long God’s people are going to shine, that’s how long the things of this prophesy will take to be fulfilled and that’s how long before Satan, in the form of the beast, will crush the power of God’s people.)

8-10: And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? 9: And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.10: Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

(You see, the devil’s plan is to crush the holy people and rule the world through the New World Order, but God’s purpose is to purify the saints.)

11-13: And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12: Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. 13: But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.

(That is dooms day--when Satan through the global community forbids people to mention Jesus or to take communion, or to display a cross--why would he do that? Because he (the devil) preaches that all roads lead to God. And he preaches a social gospel. He usurps the place of authority that the Bible should have and he even finally sits in the temple and reveals himself to be God in the flesh.

The difference between three and one half years and this thousand three hundred and five and thirty days is forty-five days. Those who are on the earth at that time will have to endure forty-five days of the anti-Christ ruling the earth sovereignly. God have mercy upon them. The forty-five days could be the length of time that laspes after the lawless one takes power and the Jewish people recognize their Savior and say, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.”

This all comes about because God’s people are not doing what He said--watch. Matt: 25:10-13: And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11: Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12: But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13: WATCH (Amplified Bibles says that watch means: give strict attention and be cautious and active) therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

If you are watching, you will see that the enemy is stealthily creeping up and he is about ready to pounce.)
