Thankful for Understanding!

Scripture reading for September 21st:  Daniel 9-12

Key Scriptures:  Daniel 12:8-10  “I heard, but I did not understand.  So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?”  He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.  Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked.  None of the wicked will understand, but those that are wise will understand.””

Daniel was puzzled by the revelations of future events that he had received.  He was told by the angel that his prophetic warning would be sealed up until the last days.  In the meantime, many people would receive purification and refining.  But the wicked would continue in their wickedness.  Understanding would come to the wise and obedient but not to the wicked!

Thankful for Christ’s Wisdom:  “Then he told me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, because the time is near.  Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong; let him who is vile continue to be vile; let him who does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy.  Behold, I am coming soon!  My reward is with Me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.”  (Revelation 22:10-12)
