Daniel-The Angel Escaped And Told Daniel the Future

My name is Daniel. I am still living in Babylon and in service to Cyrus king of Persia.

Many of my Hebrew brothers and their families traveled back to Jerusalem a short time ago. King Cyrus gave them permission. Ezra led the people. 

An angel came to speak to me after I'd seen a vision. I don't know if I had such a difficult time because I am older or because of the vision that scared me, or maybe both.

The angel continue explaining the vision to me from the last time: 

"A man with no line of royalty will worm his way into the hearts of the people living in the North. The country will be at a time when everything is going well. This despicable man will compel the people to listen to him. 

"With him, a few trusted people will rise to power. They will go where the richest people live. And while those citizens trust him, he will rob all their wealth and give it to his army.

"His army will grow and this leader of the North will encourage his men to fight with their strength and courage against the king of the South. He will lead his powerful army to battle but he will fail because men in his realm will plot against him.  Many of his men will fall in that battle.

"A grand meeting will be held between the king of the North and the king of the South. They will sit down to a meal and lie to each other. All these lies will mean nothing because the end will come at the time God set. The king of the North will go home with great wealth, but his heart will be against the holy covenant. And he will honor those who are against the holy covenant.

"The king of the North's anger will build again. He will set out to invade the South, but this time something new will happen. Ships from the western coastlands will fight him and he will become discouraged.  

"He will turn back and take his wrath out on the holy covenant. He will order his army to destroy the temple fortress and stop daily sacrifice. He will compliment and flatter those who disobey the holy covenant. 

But the people who know their God will firmly resist him. 

"Those who are wise will teach all who will listen. For a time these wise teachers will be killed by the sword or be burned or be captured or robbed. When they fall, few will help. Unfortunately many who are not sincere will join them causing some of the wise to stumble. 

"That is okay because these who have stumbled will be refined, purified and made spotless until all of this comes to an end.

The end will come at the appointed time.

This story continues next time.
