Discussion for Daniel 12

  • Cora
    I think Daniel's vision give us insight into how great our God truly is and a verse by verse of what he sees and is to come in the last days. When the antichrist is destroyed and many that are asleep,some to life some to shame we will all see the full beauty of our Father's love for all his children. Praise the Lord.

    2 Kings 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

    Genesis 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not, for God took him.

    Enoch and Elijah were not taken up to heaven. John 3:13; And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. Jesus made this statement, not some commentary book. Study and you will find what happened. Shalom.
  • Michael
    It can not be Daniel . Only two men in the bible were taken up to heaven alive , makes sense it will be Enoch and Elijah who witness these two men must die before judgment day
  • Scott
    I believe Daniel will be one of the two prophets ministring to us in the last days.

    HEBREWS 8-1Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; 2A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
