G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible
Daniel 12

 

 

Verses 1-13

The last things are then foretold. Michael, the great prince, would stand up for the children of God's people, and there would ensue a time of trouble such as never had been. Beyond that there would be a resurrection, and the dawning of a new age. This prophecy was literally fulfilled under the Roman power.

Daniel was charged to shut the book and sea1 it to-the time of the end. He heard the man clothed in linen swear in mystic language by Him that liveth that these things would be for "a time, times, and a half," that the things finally foretold would be fulfilled only when the end of the breaking of the power of the holy people had come.

Filled with a sense of the mystery of the things he had seen and heard, the prophet inquired, "O, my lord, what shall be the issue of these things?" The answer was that the words were shut up and sealed to the time of the end, and he was urged to go his way, that is, to attend to his own duty, and fulfil his own responsibility. Moreover, he was assured that blessing would be granted to those who waited, that he himself would rest, and yet stand in his lot at the end of the days.
