First, let's look at the "whois" domain name registration information for a domain that I registered way, way back in 2009.  I've never actually done anything with the domain and never even created a website to host the domain.
Logic would dictate that I should have cancelled the yearly domain registration renewal and associated cost for that service.  Yet, no I never did.
So, without further ado, here's the whois information for the domain "daniel12.org"

And just to prove to you that this domain does belong to me, try clicking on the link below.  It should take you straight back to this same page.

Now, take a look at the URL at the top of your browser.  You should see the text "http://daniel12.org/" followed by the rest of the URL that points to this page.


Pretty neat, huh? ;-)


Now, you're likely saying by this point, "Why is this in any way, shape or form important or worth my time"?  Well, let's delve real quick into what Daniel chapter 12 is saying exactly.


The Time of the End

12 “At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above;[a] and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.

Then I, Daniel, looked, and behold, two others stood, one on this bank of the stream and one on that bank of the stream. And someone said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream,[b] “How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?” And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream; he raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven and swore by him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time, and that when the shattering of the power of the holy people comes to an end all these things would be finished. I heard, but I did not understand. Then I said, “O my lord, what shall be the outcome of these things?” He said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be refined, but the wicked shall act wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but those who are wise shall understand. 11 And from the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is he who waits and arrives at the 1,335 days. 13 But go your way till the end. And you shall rest and shall stand in your allotted place at the end of the days.


So, I'm not sure if you know what's being talked about here, but that chapter in the Book of Daniel is referring to what the Bible calls "The Two Witnesses."
And, also, if you happen to notice, God specifically calls out Daniel, a prophet in the Old Testament, to "shut up the words and seal the book" and that Daniel should "go your way till the end. And you shall rest and shall stand in your allotted place at the end of the days."
Sound familiar?  Recall how I just saying on a previous page in this book about how I needed to wait on God's divine timing?  Now, do I believe that what's happening today could in any way be related to the same "scroll" that Daniel was instructed to "shut up and seal" until the "end of days"?
You had better believe that I do!  Of course, I'm very well aware that probably 99.999999999999999% of folks out there in the world will never accept that as fact.  And, I'm also well aware that just because I believe that this is what's going on right now in my life, doesn't necessarily make it true.
Yes, you read that right!  Just because I believe something to be true doesn't always mean that I'm right!  It doesn't always mean that the thing is true.
Anyway, enough about all this for now.  Gotta get up extra early in the morning for a church function and need to head on to bed now.
Until next time, God bless!  And goodnight!
