One hundred years ago, many of the prophecies in this book were still obscure. Today as we are approaching the end, they become more understandable just as the angel told the prophet at the end of Daniel, “But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book until the time of the end.” (Daniel 12:2) Daniel’s prophecies provide us with a comprehensive and chronological prophetical view of the broad movement of history, from the Times of the Gentiles to the Messianic Rule of Messiah. It is also thoroughly practical as well. In the harsh environment of the captivity, the faith, prayer life, and the love for God Daniel still stands today as a great example for us to follow.
