We live in the most exciting "Bible Times" in the history of mankind, bar none!
We live in the
of the end" that the prophet Daniel wrote
of and spoke of and desired to "see",
a time when "many would run to and fro" and "knowledge would be increased"
and the "seals" of the great book, God's Word, would be opened
and "unveiled" by the Lamb of God (Rev. 6:1) to "the wise",
who are simply those who sincerely study His Word and hear His voice.
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Daniel was told the words of his prophecy were to be closed up and sealed until the time of the end.
Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
Then the wise
in "the time of the end", aka "the last days",
would understand what was written concerning the events of the final generation.
We are living in that time now!
So therefore, we can now read and understand.
 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
Consider now the
Think about the incredible technological age of increased knowledge
and information and global communications in which we live!
Here are the words
of Joel as quoted by the apostle Peter
on that first Pentecost Day following the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
All the events
that shall happen in and unto this final generation were prophesied long,
even as Jesus said in Mark 13:23 "...behold, I have foretold you all things".
