'Book of Daniel'
Dan 12:3-4 "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. 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."
Who are the wise?
Mat 7:24 "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock"
The wise are those who keep the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Mat 5:44 "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you"
Turning many to Righteousness
Mat 28:19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
It is our Lord's commission that we are to make disciples and not just evangelism for salvation.
shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end
The understanding of all endtime prophecies has been shut up and sealed until the time of the end or the last days.
Without revelation, all types of wrong doctrines and even heresies have been taught in bible colleges and churches concerning endtime prophecies and events all these years.
many shall run to and fro
The last days will see people traveling long distances commonly and frequently by cars, rails, and planes. In the days of Daniel, very few will travel more than 20 miles per day.
knowledge shall increase
The last days will see great knowledge and understanding of the mysteries of God's creation in space, science, physics, DNA, nanotechnology, medicine, artificial intelligence, construction materials and designs, robotic, and so on.
Take heed, Watch and Pray
Mark 13:32-33 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is."
With the fulfillment of these 2 prophecies, we can safely say that we are likely living in the last days and if so, then we should be able to understand endtime prophecies and the beginning of the last generation prior to rapture.
Deceptions in Rejecting Daniel
Unfortunately, all those unlearned in the book of Daniel will not be able know 'what' to watch and when the last days begins. Not only is Satan successful in deceiving Christians today, but Jewish theologian and historians reduced the prophetic book of Daniel to historic thus preventing Jews from accepting our Lord Jesus as their Messiah, whom they killed (7+62) x 7 years after King Cyrus' command to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem.
Dan 9:25-26a "Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself;"
Brethren, don't be misled by these blind theologians and historians who will lead you to damnation. Thank God that He will always protect us by revealing His truth to us in His words like our Lord Jesus calling Daniel His prophet.
