prince who stands watch over the sons of your
people and there shall be a time of trouble
Michaels Proclamation
Daniel 121
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.
Michaels Proclamation
A Great Distress

earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, some
to shame and everlasting contempt.
Great Awakening!
Daniel 123

brightness of the firmament, and those who turn
many to righteousness like the stars forever and
Great Awakening!
A Great Awakening
  • Is talking about the last resurrection?
  • Resurrection of the righteous only?
  • Emphasis on those who have died during this
    terrible distress
  • Given assurance God is not yet finished with them
  • Tribulation, testing, and persecution will have a
    determined end designated by God.

A Great Awakening
  • Old Testament passages can also be used
    figuratively to speak of a spiritual or moral
  • In the days of Herod, the whole nation awoke out
    of spiritual sleep due to the preaching of John
    the Baptist, Jesus, and the NT apostles.
  • Many slumbering in spiritual indifference would
    awake and answer the gospel call.

A Great Awakening
  • The angel spoke of teaching stars.
  • Teaching of the wisecauses others to be wise.
  • Leading many to righteousness by obedience to
    God. (123 Matthew 1343)
  • Give godly instructions in times of conflict and

Daniel 124

book until the time of the end many shall run to
and fro, and knowledge shall increase.

Seal up the Book!
  • The angel speaks and tells Daniel to seal up the
  • Fulfillments of the prophecies he was writing
    would come long after his death.
  • Preserve and protect the revelation for the
  • Includes the whole book of Daniel.
  • Only in the future would these words be clearly

Seal up the Book!
  • Until the time of the end.
  • Many run to and fro seeking knowledge.
  • Knowledge shall increase.
  • Gods final dealings with the nation of Israel!
  • By the teaching of others, knowledge would
    increaseif it was sought after.

    insight to Old Testament scriptures!

was above the waters of the river, How long
shall the fulfillment of these wonders be?

swore by Him who lives forever

time and when the power of the holy people has
been completely shattered, all these things shall
be finished.

  • Same as the one in 105ff
  • Witness to an oath

    signifying most solemn assurance.

Daniels Question
Daniel 129
And he said, Go your way, Daniel, for the words
are closed up and sealed till the time of the
The Answer
Daniels Question and Answer
  • Daniel did not comprehend what he had been
  • His questionwhat shall be the issue of these
  • Who would win in the struggle and how would the
    participants fare?
  • Answergo your way these words are sealed and
    concealed up until the time of the end.

Daniels Question and Answer
  • The vision did not directly concern Daniel.
  • As time went on, these events would unravel
  • Concerning At the end of time, there are two
    possible answers
  • The end of Gods dealing with Israel (Matthew 24)
  • When Rome would be brought down
  • Consider Revelation 107

Daniel 1210
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
The Wise Understand
The Wicked and the Wise
  • Predictions would not be understood by alleven
    in the day of their fulfillment!
  • Many of the Jews would be purged, purified,
    and refined.
  • How?
  • By the ordeal itself
  • Preaching of the gospel
  • Some who have insight recognize their Messiah.
  • They remember the teaching and words of Jesus.

The Wicked and the Wise
  • The obstinately wicked, would continue in their
    wickednesseven as events were crashing down
    around them.
  • Matthew 24 gives a discourse of Jerusalems
    impending destruction at the hands of Rome.
  • Jesus gave his disciples warning signs and
    urged them to flee the city.
  • Another reason for not discussing the end of
    times at Christs second coming

The Wicked and the Wise
  • Christians who heeded the warning were not
    affected by Jerusalems destruction in AD 70.
  • Two pivotal events
  • The ceasing of the daily sacrifices at the
    templemorning and evening
  • Armies surrounding the holy cityanother warning
  • The abomination of desolation standing in the
    holy place!

Daniel 1211
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.
Abomination of Desolation
Daniel 1212
Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one
thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.
Blessing on Those Who Wait
Abomination of Desolation
  • The two pivotal events
  • Taking away daily sacrifice
  • Roman armies in the holy place
  • The same events prophesied by Jesus during His
    teaching on earth
  • Matthew 2415
  • Luke 2120
  • The difference between what Epiphanes did and
    what took place at the destruction of Jerusalem

Abomination of Desolation
  • Length of time between the two events1290 days.
  • Days represent an indefinite time period, known
    to God, while things ran their course.
  • Some theories
  • 43 months after the abomination set up
    (surrounding the city), daily sacrifice ceased
  • HistoryRomans armies besiege the city (Oct AD
  • (July 14 AD 70) sacrifice suspendedTitus comes
    into Jerusalem.

Abomination of Desolation
  • Thus, the 1290 days would represent the period of
    most intense suffering by the inhabitants of
  • Remember Jesus statementexcept for the elects
    sakes, those days would not have been shortened.
    (Matthew 2422)
  • 1335 daysblessings on those who keeps waiting45
    days longer than 1290 days
  • City was torched in September, AD 70.

Abomination of Desolation
  • Remember what Rome was seeking to docrush the
  • She failed to do so, and Gods kingdom proved
    indestructiblelater, Rome itself would fall.
  • Could the additional days of waiting be for the
    achievement of Gods final judgment against Rome?

Daniel 1212
But you, go your way till the end for you shall
rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the
end of the days.
Final Instructions
Final Instructions
  • Daniel will endure till the end of his life.
  • His body shall rest in peace (grave).
  • He shall standthe faithful will be rewarded.
  • Daniel confirmed as a true prophet of God
  • He will arise to receive his inheritance in the
