I find the words found in Daniel 12:1-4 intriguing. In my mind they don’t all flow together but interesting facts are told. I trust God’s perfect intention for this passage. Here’s what stands out to me as I read it:
1) Micheal, the archangel guards Israel.
2)Hard times will come but those who truly belong to God will be rescued.
3)Wise people who follow God will shine and bring many others to Him.
4)In the end times, travel will be great and so will knowledge.
So, I use God’s Word here, and turn it into a prayer!
Dear Heavenly Father, Use us! In these end times, where technology and knowledge has increased greatly, help us each day to greatly share Your Gospel. Use us to take it to our neighbors and to all people even in the most remote places. Soften their hearts even now and let them understand Your love and change them forever! Together with Jesus we cry out to You! Amen!
12 “At that time Michael, the archangel who stands guard over your nation, will arise. Then there will be a time of anguish greater than any since nations first came into existence. But at that time every one of your people whose name is written in the book will be rescued. 2 Many of those whose bodies lie dead and buried will rise up, some to everlasting life and some to shame and everlasting disgrace. 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. 4 But you, Daniel, keep this prophecy a secret; seal up the book until the time of the end, when many will rush here and there, and knowledge will increase.”
