Daniel 12:1-13

16 06 2011

Daniel 12:1) “At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands [watch] over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, [Even] to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book.

Daniel 12:2) And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, Some to shame [and] everlasting contempt.

Daniel 12:3) Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever.

Daniel 12:4) “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”

Daniel 12:5) Then I, Daniel, looked; and there stood two others, one on this riverbank and the other on that riverbank.

Daniel 12:6) And [one] said to the man clothed in linen, who [was] above the waters of the river, “How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders [be]?”

Daniel 12:7) Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who [was] above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that [it shall be] for a time, times, and half [a time]; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these [things] shall be finished.

Daniel 12:8) Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, “My lord, what [shall be] the end of these [things]?”

Daniel 12:9) And he said, “Go [your way], Daniel, for the words [are] closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

Daniel 12:10) “Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

Daniel 12:11) “And from the time [that] the daily [sacrifice] is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, [there shall be] one thousand two hundred and ninety days.

Daniel 12:12) “Blessed [is] he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.

Daniel 12:13) “But you, go [your way] till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.”

Rather ominous isn’t it… and yet hopeful at the same time.  I mean how many times does God say he’ll watch over us and protect us.  And yet in this scripture the Abomination of Desolation is going to have free reign for quiet a while.  Although Satan has had free reign ever since Adam and Eve made that terrible mistake in the Garden, it has always been limited; this time it seems that most of the limiters come off, and we will be almost completely powerless until the time when He comes again.  But don’t be afraid for the place where our power comes from is in Him and His Word… No matter how terrible things may seem, no matter how alone we may feel… He is always with us, and I thank God for seeing us through till the end.
