“At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”

Many people believe we are very close to (or even actually in) the end times spoken about in Scripture. We cannot know this for sure, but what Daniel reminds us, and what we see all through the Scriptures written centuries ago, is that we need to be awake and aware of those who are perishing without Christ. We must remember that no one is beyond the reward of eternal life, and the Lord has put us here to be His instruments of peace and wisdom in our lands. How can you be more awake to the needs around you today?'
