Daniel 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.

2 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.

4 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.

8 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.

11 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.

  1. Be prepared, Be on Watch.

    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.

    8 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.

    1 Thessalonians 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

    2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

    Revelation 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

    Not even Daniel that was given so much revelations, or John, or Paul, no one was given the day nor the time of His Return. That is why every time someone attempts to put a specific time, I laugh… For we should see the signs, and we should know His coming is near. We should prepare for His return every day. OUTREACH IS IMPORTANT… God thinks so, why not us…He thinks it is important for Verse 3 says those that bring others to know HIM will shine more than the stars. They will shine more than the righteous, more than the stars, God wants them brighter than anyone or anything else. So be ready, have your bags pack, for this world is not our home.

    This world is not my home I’m just passing through
    my treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue
    the angels beckon me from Heaven’s open door
    and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore
    O Lord you know I have no friend like you
    if Heaven’s not my home then Lord what will I do?
    the angels beckon me from Heaven’s open door
    and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

    They’re all expecting me and that’s one thing I know
    my savior pardoned me and now I onward go
    I know He’ll take me through though I am weak and poor
    and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore
    O Lord you know I have no friend like you
    if Heaven’s not my home then Lord what will I do?
    the angels beckon me from Heaven’s open door
    and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

    Just up in Glory Land we’ll live eternally
    the Saints on every hand are shouting victory
    their song of sweetest praise drifts back from Heaven’s shore
    and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore
    O Lord you know I have no friend like you
    if Heaven’s not my home then Lord what will I do?
    the angels beckon me from Heaven’s open door
    and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

  2. 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.

    2 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.

    IS YOUR NAME IN THE BOOK

    The importance of our name being written in the book is shown here. The people that had their name written in the book shall be delivered. Our God is the same God today, we must have our name written in the book. There will come a day when God will judge everyone even those that have been asleep. God will wake them up, and I hope to everlasting life. Regardless we will face the truth one day.

  3. 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.
    2 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.

    Then Michael will stand up and there will be great trouble. Only those names written in the lamb’s book of life will be delivered.

    If this is followed chronologically the previous chapter ended with the anti-Christ making war.

    Yet even in this we still have the upper hand.

    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.

    No matter what is going on in this crazy world our mission remains the same until the very end. REACH THE LOST!

  4. Daniel 5-7
    The man that was upon the waters clothed with linen; does this not remind you of the new testiment when a man clothed with linen walked before the deciples, Jesus.

    I understand that daniel at this point is talking about the end times but i cant help but see jesus standing upon the water.

  5. Daniel 12:9-10 MSG
    ‘Go on about your business, Daniel,’ he said. ‘The message is confidential and under lock and key until the end, until things are about to be wrapped up. The populace will be washed clean and made like new. But the wicked will just keep on being wicked, without a clue about what is happening. Those who live wisely and well will understand what’s going on.’

    Go on about your business…and what is our business?

    Luke 2:49 KJV
    And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?

    Matthew 28:19 KJV
    Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

    Our Father’s business is our business; it’s a family thing…are you part of the family?

  6. 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.

    Talk about letting your light shine, praise God! The more we witness the brighter it will be 🙂

  7. GET IN THE BOOK

    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.

    Books have great importance throughout the WORD of GOD. In the Old Testament we find the word registry, which is a book of names to identify the linage of Israel and to whom the inheritance would go.

    Here in Daniel we first hear the prophesy of the necessity of a New Birth experience, The name of EVERY BORN AGAIN believer that has REPENTED of sin, been BAPTIZED by immersion in the name of JESUS, and received the HOLY SPIRIT (speaking in tongues) is recorded in the BOOK of LIFE. (We must communicate this message to the world).

    We find the fulfillment of these scriptures in:

    Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
    13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
    14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
    15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

    We must be tenacious to GET IN THE BOOK. The BOOK of LIFE (New Birth experience) and the BOOKS (the BIBLE). The BOOK of LIFE is an experience, the BOOKS is a PROCESS of daily reading and living out what we read. I REFUSE to LOSE in this journey. GET IN THE BOOK!

    The Resurrection Of The Dead

    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.

    2 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.

    The key statement is “and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time.”

    Question…When does this time of trouble happen? After Michael stands up.

    Rev 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
    Rev 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
    Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
    Rev 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
    Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
    Rev 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

    At the present time the devil has access to heaven.

    Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
    Job 1:7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

    But there is coming a time when Michael the Archangel will stand up…Then will the devil be cast into the earth…At this time the time of trouble that Daniel speaks about will happen. Its NOT the wrath of God, but it will be the wrath of the devil.

    Rev. 12:12 Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

    The devil will fully enter at this time into a man that is called the antichrist. That is the day that the antichrist enters into the newly rebuilt temple and calls himself God.

    There will be all out battle and then the resurrection of the dead.

    Mat 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
    Mat 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

  9. 12:13 But go thou thy way till the end be:for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.

    For thou shalt rest: Daniel would not live to see the fulfillment of his own prophecies , but is here promised that he would be ressurected to receive his reward (thou shalt…stand in thy lot). All who trust in Daniel’s God will likewise be
    Blessed.

  10. 2 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.

    The rewards or consequences of what happens at the end of time should far out way our temporary circumstance. So many times we make decisions based on short term feel goods that we ignore the long term eternal effects. This world is not our home, we are just passing through no matter where we end up. Our goal should be to ultimately make heaven, every decision should begin to align with that.

    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.

    Proverbs 11:30
    30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;
    and he that winneth souls is wise.

    Go win souls! It’s throughout the entire bible! Truly the heartbeat of God!

  11. 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.

    2 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.

    Judgement is coming. There’s an old saying “as the tree falls, so shall it lie.” Once the book is opened there is not second chance to find our names written there. We must make daily preparation now to ensure that our names are found in the book of life. Should we go by the way of the grave, we must awaken to everlasting life, not torment.

  12. “‘Men and women who have lived wisely and well will shine brilliantly, like the cloudless, star-strewn night skies. And those who put others on the right path to life will glow like stars forever. (Daniel 12:3 MSG)

    What I beautiful sight for a soul winner. We shall be like him.

    And the teachers and those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness (to uprightness and right standing with God) [shall give forth light] like the stars forever and ever. [Matt. 13:43.] (Daniel 12:3 AMP)

    Then will the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with God) shine forth like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let him who has ears [to hear] be listening, and let him consider and perceive and understand by hearing. [Dan. 12:3.] (Matthew 13:43 AMP)

  13. How brigh will you shine?

    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.

    Proverbs 11:30
    The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

    It pays to be a great soul winner!

  14. 3 Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever. (NLT)

    When I read this verse I was reminded of a song I heard of a few years ago that says “We’re going into all the world, carrying the light of Jesus, and we shine, we shine, in the darkest place we shine.” We must go sharing the gospel to all the world!

  15. The Revival of the Ages

    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.

    It shall come to pass that the overcast of spiritual wickedness in high places shall cover the Earth. The wise are the people who are godly. The born again, Holy Spirit filled saints that walk in the commandments of the Lord. They shall shine bright, and many shall be turned to righteousness. This revival will be so great, that the amount of people converted will not be measurable. It will only be an estimate, just like the stars in the sky. Bless God. Jesus deserves the reward of His suffering!!

  16. This chapter illustrates revealed. Daniel was made aware of what was to come. The word of God reveals what is to come, for one that desires to know; “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”. What a mighty God we serve! May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  17. 2 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.

    When you die, will you know where you are going? Thank you Jesus that we have an opprotunity to change things in our lives. That Jesus died for my sins that I might have life everlasting.

  18. To be among the chosen is going to take a pure heart. Those who are willing to follow after God and be servants to his word. Only the righteous will find their name in the book.

  19. But the wise will shine like the brightness of the heavenly expanse. And those bringing many to righteousness will be like the stars forever and ever. (Daniel 12:3)

    Being a soul winner is what it’s all about. Shine bright like the stars in the night sky.

  20. 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.
    Are we letting our light shine or are we putting a shade over it so it won’t be so bright.
    Lord help me to be a bright light so others may see you thru the life I live.

  21. 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.

    Out of all the great wonders and things that shall be done and we will see…the greatest of them all is to be vigilant and to run the race, to find ourselves approved, good and faithful servants. In the end the most important is that we get to see Him wear white garments and that our name be written in the book of life.

    Luke 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

  22. 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.

    Are you ready for deliverance? We will be by this time. And we must take as many with us as we can. We must reach them & teach them now.

  23. 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.

    God speaks of the time that is, what is called the time of the end. When the earth will tremble, there’ll be many great calamities and the wicked shall abound greatly, but despite all these things happening in the world in the days to come and all around us as we see these things even when we read the newspaper or read it on an article online, God tells us not to fear.

    Matthew 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, see that ye be not troubled for all these things must come to pass but the end is not yet.

    So the question becomes, why must all these things come to pass? Why must God bring about turmoil in all the earth for the end to come? Couldn’t he just make it easy and take us all into heaven now and then let the Earth fall into panic?

    It’s similar to the question I’m sure many unbelievers have asked, why is there hurt and why does God allow pain and death in this world? But though it’s hard to see with our limited earthly eyes, God has a reason for all things… he shows us the reason for this as well.

    Matthew 24:13-14 But he that shall endure unto the end the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all the nations and then shall the end come.

    For you see, God allows these things to happen, so that people who do not believe in him shall look for an answer to all that’s around them. After all, how can God be a deliverer if there nothing to deliver anyone from? How can God show himself a healer without pain to heal from? How can God be a savior with nothing to save people from?

    The reason we are all here is to do his work, deliver his gospel unto the ends of the earth so that as many people that can be reached can hear his name and be delivered from the pits of hell. So don’t just think about if you are going to heaven, take someone else who needs him with you! For once we were all lost but now are found, let’s bring this joy to others as well.

    2 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.

    Revelation 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth. Yea saith the Spirit that they may rest from their labors and their works do follow them.

    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.

    Once again, this talks about us a light to this world, a candle to guide the lost through the darkness that seems to surround them

    Matthew 5:15-16 Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel but on a candlestick and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your father which is in heaven.

    4 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.

    Even today we can see knowledge increases more and more by the year. It was said in a study that the time it takes for men to double their knowledge, takes half as long as it used to. In other words, what would take 10 years to gain knowledge, decreased to 5, and then 2 and half and etc.

    God has shown that the time of the end draws ever near, but not only that, but he has given us ever increasing knowledge to help us win more souls than even the early apostles could dream of reaching to. So let’s reach the world for Jesus!

  24. Where’s The Increase?

    4 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.

    As of October 2013, Google has reportedly seen around 12.477 billion monthly searches. And with the advent of modern technology, not only can we travel quicker and farther with greater ease but we can also carry google in our pockets with smart phones and both run to and fro and increase our knowledge at the same time. Unfortunately some even try to combine this with web surfing and driving…

    But in all the running, and all the knowledge, we must ask the question, do we have ahold of what counts? Or rather, does *it* have ahold of us? If we are not careful, we can find ourselves in the trap of doing and learning without relationship with God and living the truth of His Word. We can know the Bible front to back but unless we truly believe and live what we know…

    In all we do, we should examine our lives to see where’s the increase. Are we increasing our kingdom or His? Are we just increasing knowledge, or growing in the Word? Are we increasing busy-ness, or are we growing in Christ living through us? We as people tend to collect “stuff” (things, activities, uses of our time, etc) and weigh our lives down with it, but just having increase is not success. We must increase where it matters and cast off what hinders us from that.

    Hebrews 12:1
    Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us

    Ephesians 5:15-16
    15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil

    Read Proverbs Chapter 30

    Daniel 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.

    2 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.

    C:Lord we thank you<3
    Lord we love you and worship you for the many things you done and are doing in our life's Jesus

  26. It’s time for the harvest like Pastor said, the backsliders and lost souls will be making their way to your temple Lord, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that you are Lord. Lets take dominion now and take back all that the devil has taken. Lord use me to reach lost souls,and deliver me from anything that is standing in the way of righteousness and from the book of life.

  27. 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.

    Many will be purified. Amen! Our sins are washed white as snow in the blood of the lamb!

    Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. (Acts 2:38, 39 KJV)

  28. A man clothed in linen 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. 8. 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, Dan’-iel: 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.

  29. Daniel’s Prophecy

    Here there is both immediate and future fulfillment. As Daniel 11 reveals, his prophecy is fulfilled down to the last detail in the rise and fall of the kingdoms that follow the Medes and the Persians. But there are also prophecies in Daniel that have yet to find fulfillment. Exactly how that fulfillment will take place and what Daniel’s words mean are disputed. But the basic truth stands: Those who remain faithful will be rewarded with everlasting life with God; the ungodly will be condemned to eternal punishment (vs1-2). Though no one knows the day or the hour, believers can rest assured that God will fully establish his kingdom on earth. In the meantime, this prophecy and God’s promise to the faithful will fortify us against evil and bring fresh hope and joyful anticipation of what is to come if we perservere.
