Daniel 12:4

 

But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”

 

 

LESSON

 

Daniel was to preserve this revelation until the end of time because much of what God had revealed to him concerned the far distant future. He confessed that he did not understand much of it, as we can appreciate, since most of it predicted things still future from his standpoint in history. Attempting to understand these prophecies, people would search around and try to discover what they meant. As time passed and knowledge increased, they would understand these things better than Daniel could.

 

The Apostle Paul even warned Timothy that in the last days, knowledge would be ever increasing, but that man would never be able to find the truth because he refused to believe in the source of all Truth. Jesus said that He was the “Truth, the Life and the Way.” If mankind won’t accept that Jesus is Truth, and that God is the Creator, the source of all knowledge and wisdom, then how can mankind ever use what he learns wisely? Knowledge without wisdom can be a dangerous thing. Knowledge is best used when God gives us the wisdom to understand and use what we know.

 

Memory Verse: 1 Corinthians 3:20

 

“I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.”
