How Shall We Then Live?
Topic: Daniel Passage: Daniel 12:5–12:13
Our text this morning skips ahead to the time of the great persecution at the end of history and the end of that age. The contrast here is that we find Daniel trying to make heads or tails of these things that are beyond him. We will find that this section gives us a key as to how to live in difficult times. What does God expect from us as we go through ever- increasing difficulty?
- Knowledge without understanding
- Increasing wickedness
- Triumphing in the midst of evil
- The people of God are to live by faith
- “Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever” (Dan. 12:3)
- Go your way till the end
