Satan has fallen in heaven and now seeking the downfall of men so that men can blaspheme God in time of delay of what we asked God for. We should keep on knocking and asking till our joy be filled.we need to be patiently wait for the promise of God.

    Daniel was mourning for 3 weeks, 21 days. People mourn in death. The angel that showed Daniel the vision fought the prince of Persia for 3 weeks, 21 days and was not winning. Michael came to his aid and that angel that fought Persia remained in Persia meaning he continues to fight Persia as stated in verse 20. At this point the fate of Israel is known as it is told to Daniel. Michael and this angel are Christian soldiers of God and only they have been told the outcome of this war, verse 21. Michael is a prince not a king, so he is not Jesus but is joined with Jesus in spirit. Michael is the prince of Daniel. I think Daniel is a Jew that converted to Christianity.
  • Insight 777
    Verse 13, this prince of the kingdom of Persia may be the one spoken of in Daniel chapter 9 verse 25, Messiah the prince. The Christian Messiah returns as a king to rule a kingdom not as a prince that is ruled by someone else.
