    Daniel is a book talking about the end times for Israel, as Revelation is also, there will be a 7 year false peace treaty for Israel I believe soon, the first 3-12 Israel will go back to doing all they had done before, as they have everything they need, then the Antichrist will take it away from them and go into the Temple and proclaim he is God, Christians are gone already with Jesus.

    I put Daniel 11, and it was 12, when Daniel was talking about the intelligence of the world, he was talking about what we have accomplished in our world, such as the internet, being able to fly anyplace, just look at what we have that Daniel's time didn't even think about, that's why he couldn't understand what the angel was telling him, and was told to close it, and many would die ECT.

    When I read Daniel 11, I get goose bumps, I remember when I couldn't understand anything of Daniel, now I do, the Grace Christians have already gone to be with Jesus Christ, caught up to meet him in the clouds, Isreal was in a false treaty of 7 years, 3-1/2 of peace and safety, then the last 3-1/2 years is when everything bad starts to happen, I guess you could call it the 3nd world war, there

    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.
