Daniel 12:1-4

WHO IS LIKE GOD, the Great Captain, shall stand up

This is the conclusion of the Angel’s explanation of Daniel’s vision of WHO IS LIKE GOD, Christ, in Daniel 10:5-6.  This was same vision that John described in Revelation 1:13-16: “I was in the Spirit in the LORD’s Day” (Revelation 1:10).

The Angel’s explanation concludes in the LORD’s Day.

Dan 12:1
Michael, the great Captain – the Hebrew word is hassar, meaning Captain as in Joshua 5:14-15.

WHO IS LIKE GOD (Michael) – the Spirit of Christ, will appear on the LORD’s Day as both the Son of Man, and the Archangel Michael, as described by Paul in 1 Thessalonians 4:16: “the Lord Himself will descend in a shout, in the voice of the Archangel.”

And there will be a time of distress such as never occurred –  Jesus quotes this in Matthew 24:21.

Everyone written in the book – the book of life described in Luke 10:20; Philippians 4:3, Revelation 13:8; 20:15

Dan 12:2
Many to everlasting life – see John 5:28-29, the “voice” of the Son of God (John 5:25), the Archangel, will bring them to life, see 1 Thessalonians 4:16.

Dan 12:3
those who are wise will shine – see Matthew 13:43, the righteous will shine in the kingdom of their Father.

Dan 12:4
seal up until the time of the end – Daniel’s prophecies will not be understood until the end time.
