"You wearied yourself by such going about,
but you would not say it was hopeless.
You found renewal of your strength,
and so you did not faint.
Whom have you so dreaded and feared
that you have been false to Me,
and have neither remembered Me
nor pondered this in your hearts?
Is it not because I have long been silent
that you do not fear Me?"
"The prophecies of Daniel are sealed until the appointed time;
only the Lamb who was slain has been found worthy to unseal the scroll.
Therefore no amount of study, research, historical investigation or
even prayer for understanding can lead you to the correct interpretation.
"If you do not wait on My timing,
the interpretations you arrive at
will draw you away from My Spirit—
who is your seal for the day of redemption.
"My children, I know you are afraid
of not understanding the time of the end.
I know you seek to understand Daniel's prophecies
because you want to be among 'those who are wise.'
"My beloved, do not be afraid!
I have made Christ Jesus to be your wisdom!
You shine like stars in the heavens
as you hold onto My Son—the Word of life!"
"I tell you the truth, whoever hears My word
and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life
and will not be condemned, but has
crossed over from death to life."
