The Mighty Angels of Daniel 12: The Second Holocaust
By Nathan Jones
The Second Holocaust
Nathan Jones: Daniel 12:1a and Jeremiah 30:7 prophesy the worst time in history is coming to the world, and specifically for the Jewish people. Daniel 12:1 reveals, “At that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time.”
I shudder to say this, but this is what the Bible prophesies, that the coming Tribulation time period will make the Nazi Holocaust seem like a school yard brawl by comparison. The Jewish people won’t even look back at the Holocaust and their six million dead as their worse ordeal, because in the Tribulation, the Antichrist will murder two-thirds of the Jewish people. With 12 million Jews in the world today, and two-thirds of them will be killed, that’s nine million Jewish people slaughtered by today’s numbers. So, the Tribulation indeed is going to be the worst of times.
I hate to think about this coming new holocaust. I have been to Israel a couple of times and have some Jewish friends there who being unbelievers I wish were saved. As we creep closer to this end times scenario, this horrific time period might actually happen in their lifetime. I pray that the Jews today will accept Jesus as Savior before the horrible Tribulation time period arrives.
Vic Batista: That’s why Christians must teach people what is to come and share the Gospel with them. Of course, we know that the Bible is true, and everything the Bible says is going to happen according to God’s timing. But, right now, we enjoy a small window of opportunity available to invite anyone who desires to surrender their life to Jesus Christ to do so.
God has a mighty plan for the ages. He loves us and He wants us to have a saving relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. Our Heavenly Father is granting humanity a brief time period in order to turn to Christ. We mus realize our sins and wrongdoings and repent of them so that we in this age of grace can be saved from having to live in the Tribulation and suffer eternal punishment in Hell.
The Lamb’s Book of Life
Vic Batista: Once saved, Christ will inscribe our names into the Lamb’s Book of Life. Daniel 12:1b reveals, “And at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book.” That book most certainly will end up being the most popular book ever written!
Nathan Jones: What book is Daniel referring to? The book of Revelation actually reveals there are two books that will be opened during the Great White Throne Judgment. First, there exists the Book of Life. Everybody who was ever born has been written in the Book of Life. The Book of Life records every person under creation. Before a person ever existed, God knew beforehand that they would be created. He wrote down each of our names in the Book of Life.
The second book, and the book that we should most desire to be written in, is the Lamb’s Book of Life. This is the book Jesus Christ wrote Himself, commissioned by His own shed blood. This book contains those who have accepted Jesus as Savior. When you are inscribed in the Lamb’s Book of Life, what a great hope we have, because we have been saved from our sins and the just punishment of Hell due to our rebellion against God.
Everyone can live forever with Jesus Christ on the New Earth. Get yourself written into the Lamb’s Book of Life by accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior!
Vic Batista: Mankind writes many books. Fans often want the authors to sign their names in their copies for added value. But, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, God’s faithful are the characters written in this book. The book Jesus wrote is a best seller, staying in print for all of eternity!
Nathan Jones: What a beautiful way of describing it! Christ’s book will last through all of eternity. I don’t know if Jesus will make it available for those people in Heaven to read. To think that one day we might be able to peer into its pages and read the names of every single person who ever placed their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.
You can know your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life once you have accepted Jesus as your Savior. I surrendered to Jesus as my Savior at a young age, and the Bible promises that my name is written in that book. I hope and pray that everybody will add their names to that book as well by accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior.
Vic Batista: How can a person engage in a saving relationship with the God of the universe? How can a person get their name added to the Lamb’s Book of Life?
Nathan Jones: Luke 15:10 tells us that, “there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” The angels rejoice in the heavens every time a person gives their life over to Jesus Christ. If you’re ready, pray from your heart something like, “Dear, Jesus, please forgive me of my sins and be my Lord and Savior.” Jesus promises that if you accept Him as the Son of God and repent of your sins in faith that you too shall be saved from the just punishment of your transgressions, which is Hell.
Vic Batista: Daniel 12 provides powerful passages of encouragement for the Jewish people. God shows He still loves the Jewish people and also has a wonderful plan for a believing remnant. But, God also desires all people to turn to Him while there was still time before the Tribulation begins.
The first segment of this series on the mighty angels of Daniel began with a tragic back story. In the seventy-ninth segment, we shall be introduced to those who are wise who shall shine like the stars forever.
