Dan 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.
Divine commentary –
“And as the book records,
so will I,
action what is written as to the names therein found,
certain in their covering,
certain in their faith,
certain in their exultation.”
Dan 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.
“So shall many arise from their time of sleep within the earth,
arise to encounter the promises of God:
either some to arise to His presence –
or some to arise to His absence.”
Dan 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.
“So shall they be rewarded for what they have become,
for what they have done:
in the service of their Loving God.”
Dan 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."
“So the words were shut,
so the book was sealed until the time of the end:
the time when many can be seen running to and fro across
the earth –
in the chariots of the skies,
in the chariots of the roads,
in the chariots of the seas;
the time when knowledge does increase –
as it falls throughout the earth –
at each call from within the networking of man.
So the words are opened,
so the book has its seal removed,
that all may know what is about to be,
what has already started,
what will surely end:
in accordance with the will of God.
For in the time of the end man grows in self-esteem in the wilderness of man,
man attacks the oases of God –
those which ensure the birth of man without rejection,
those which teach morality to man,
those which make known the pathway of reconciliation between man and God,
those which seal the marriage covenant within the grace of God,
those which have repentance on the heart of man,
those who know the difference between the honouring and the respecting of the freewill of man.
Woe to those to whom God comes respecting their freewill,
for they are the couriers of their own destruction,
for they shall fall within the plagues of man –
as the contents of the bowls of the wrath of God are poured out upon the earth.
the angels of The Lord hold the bowls as they process within the throne room.
For these are them in whom God respects freewill:
these who participate in,
these who encourage,
these who ally with,
these who teach,
these who facilitate,
these who practise,
these who sympathise with,
these who share a table with,
these who legalise,
these who work towards,
these who promote,
these who fund,
these who vote for,
these who seek the loopholes,
these who prevent accountability,
these who bring false testimony,
these who receive dishonest gain,
these who do not address the pain,
the suffering laid at their very door:
all those with hearts found guilty –
resulting from their willing freewill
adoption of self-love,
cartels at all levels;
society splitting asunder as families forsake righteousness,
the extreme danger of the womb,
the loss of the respect for life –
increasing child endangerment,
increasing molestation of the defenceless,
increasing discarding of the elderly –
the mothers and the fathers of the nations,
the disregarding of the repositories of wisdom,
the increasing of those
who see yet will not read,
who read yet will not write,
who write yet will not spell,
who think yet will not reason,
who know yet will not understand,
who number yet will not calculate:
for to the slothful,
laziness brings progress to a halt,
brings the labourer to penury,
brings a family to the soup kitchen
brings forth no fruit to be gathered
in abundance from the endeavours of the family tree;
agendas of darkness designed to bestow acceptance upon iniquity,
the passage of laws which usurp the authority of God unto
the authority of man,
the decline of emphasis on God-given morals,
the rise of emphasis on human-ascribed ethics;
the growth in the unaccountability of man to man,
the growth in the wayward child,
the growth in those who seek the dead,
the growth in killers in relationships,
the growth in those who circumvent the marriage bed,
who stain the marriage bed,
who weaponise the marriage bed;
the arising of the liars,
on the networkings of man;
the arising of the false prophets on the networkings of man,
the arising of deceptions practised on the elect of God.
For in these days will the haven of today become the fire-zone of tomorrow,
will the days of peace evaporate before the frost of hunger,
will the days of sickness outstrip the call for medication,
will the needs of mothers be answered by the gun,
will the crying child find no arms of comfort,
will those who flee discover the valley of their death.
For in these days will the earth tremble under fire,
will the earth shiver before the wind,
will the earth shrink under the water,
will the earth seek freedom from the structures of man,
will the earth reject the duress of man,
will the earth despise the greed of man.
For in these days will the earth dismiss the godless generations which are upon the earth.
For in these days will the foolish put their trust in the theories of man,
will the wise put their trust in the will of God.
For in these days will the foolish still procrastinate,
will the wise have their house in order.
For in these days will the foolish utter their final prayers of unbelief,
will the wise know what to expect.
For in these days the counsel of the fool in Satan is of no value but to the fool;
the counsel of the wise in God is sought,
with a relationship established through a repentant heart.”
Dan 12:5 Then I, Daniel, looked; and there stood two others, one on this riverbank and the other on that riverbank.
“So in these days the angels of The Lord,
the semblances of The Holy Spirit,
are upon the land.”
Dan 12:6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, "How long shall the fulfilment of these wonders be?"
“ Then the question was asked of Him who is not presently upon the earth,
yet has the living water.”
Dan 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.
“Then The Presence in fine linen raised both hands to heaven as He stated,
with great certainty in His avowing of the truth,
it is to be for one thousand two hundred and sixty days as measured in the days of Daniel,
yet one thousand two hundred and seventy eight days as measured in the days of the time of the end;
and when the power of My people,
has been utterly broken then all these things reach their completion.”
Dan 12:8 Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, "My lord, what shall be the end of these things?"
“So Daniel’s lack of understanding prompted his seeking of clarity.”
Dan 12:9 And he said, "Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
“But Daniel was enjoined to go his way for the words were closed up,
until the time of the end.”
Dan 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.
“So The Presence,
everyone found written in the book,
in the time of the end,
is to be purified,
as they are refined.
Yet the wicked continue in their ways of wickedness,
are as fools in their failure to understand;
not so the wise with their completeness of understanding.”
Dan 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.
“So the days are called,
so the days are numbered in the days of Daniel,
so the days are counted by the wise as one thousand three hundred and eight days,
in this time of the end.”
Dan 12:12 "Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.
“So the blessing awaits he who continues to re-count the days of Daniel;
as he dwells in the one thousand three hundred and fifty-four days,
of the time of the end;
while within the covering of the new covenant.”
Dan 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."
“So The Presence concludes as He advises Daniel to go his way until the end,
for he is to rest within the earth,
from where he will arise at the end of the days.
Let he who seeks wisdom read precept upon precept,
line upon line,
so he may be prepared to count,
so that which awaits Daniel also awaits him.”
