“To understand a proverb and an enigma, The words of the wise and their riddles. (Pro 1:6)
In the II World War Germany was defeated and it fell into the hands of the Americans and the Russians. The Russians robbed all the gold, silver and other precious items there but at the same time the Americans gave importance to wisdom and thus identified all the scholars and scientists left in Germany and took them to their country.
For Daniel the Prophet the worldly things did not look too precious. The king Belshazzar said to Daniel “You shall be clothed with purple and have a chain of gold around your neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.” Then Daniel answered, and said before the king, “Let your gifts be for yourself, and give your rewards to another; yet I will read the writing to the king, and make known to him the interpretation.’ (Daniel 5:16-17).
The grace of God which reveals the hidden things was the wisdom of Daniel. “And in all matters of wisdom and understanding about which the king examined them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were in all his realm.” (Daniel 1:20). “As for these four young men, God gave them knowledge and skill in all literature and wisdom; and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.” (Daniel 1:17).
Daniel too was able to know many Godly secrets through fasting and praying. He was able to give interpretations and explain enigmas. The spirit of God was within him and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom were found in him. (Daniel 5:14, 16). Dear children of God when you long for the gifts of the Holy Spirit and seek them as though you are seeking treasures, God will give them to you. People will be amazed to see you revealing the hidden truths. Not only that. They will come nearer to God.
When the time of death for Daniel approached, God said with love “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.” (Daniel 12:4). “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.” (Daniel 12:9).
If you go through the books of Daniel and Revelation simultaneously with utmost concentration, many things of the future will be revealed to you. The Godly secrets over the heaven and the hell will also be revealed to you. You will come know about thre children of God, satanic children and also about the end of this world.
To meditate: “But you go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.” (Daniel 12:13)
