Shall run - Shall diligently search these prophecies; and they shall know the signs of the times, and wait upon God in the way of his judgments: he means chiefly in gospel - times.

    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.
