 Jerusalem in Israel


The Time of the End 

  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. 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.

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. 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. 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. 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?

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.

And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 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.

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. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days. (Daniel 12:1-13)

The Book of DANIEL

aniel was a nobleman of Israel (possibly a prince) who was taken to Babylon in the first deportation (605 B.C.), probably while in his early teens (Dan. 1:3, 4). His ministry lasted the entire length of the Babylonian Exile, his last dated prophecy being made in 536 B.C., when Daniel was in his eighties. The meaning of Daniel's name, "my God is Judge," is certainly in harmony with the overall theme of the book, the sovereignty of God. This book describes current and future world conflicts, but God's control over all events is clearly demonstrated.

Daniel is probably the most highly organized book in Scripture. Some attribute this to the fact that near the end of his life, Daniel rewrote and organized the whole book into one consolidated message. The intricate arrangement of the ideas in the book demonstrates the extraordinary wisdom of Daniel (Dan. 1:17, 19, 20; 4:9; 5:11).
The things that appear in Daniel's visions, such as the great statue, the beasts, the angelic messengers, and the description of God's glory, are very similar to the things that are portrayed in the Book of Revelation. The Book of Revelation cannot be properly interpreted without a general knowledge of the Book of Daniel. Material from every chapter of Daniel is either quoted or alluded to in Revelation, and only two chapters in Revelation do not hare some background in Daniel.
