In today’s (chronological) Bible reading… Daniel 10-12… Daniel receives a vision of the future from an angel.
God started by revealing to Daniel a summary of what would happen to God’s people now that they were restored as a nation. They would not have an easy time of it! It would seem – to them – as though they would go from war to war to war… with nation after nation after nation. And it seems to have continued to our day today!
But, then God shifts to the last days… and describes the agenda of the AntiChrist. Read this section along with 2 Thessalonians 2 & Revelation 13.
What should God’s people do in such times of conflict and destruction? They should stay strong in the Lord! They should continue to act in faith! They should share God’s truth of Jesus with others!
Bad times challenge God’s people to do good things!
