The purpose of this volume is to 'unseal' or reveal the mysteries in the prophecy of Daniel. The book of Daniel is the ONLY example in the entire bible of a prophecy that was 'shut up' and/or 'sealed' in antiquity. This is a mysterious phrase and is the reason the book is NOT well understood to the present time. The 'shutting up' or 'sealing' of the book must mean that the full and complete MEANING of the prophecy would NOT be revealed to the understanding of men. That is, until the arrival of a time period called 'the time of the end.' (See Dan. 12:9) This appears to be the exact case because there are things in the prophecy that clearly have NOT been correctly understood to this very day. Examples of these misunderstood things in the prophecy include: (1) The meaning of the phrase, 'the time of the end.' (2) The historical identity of the 'willful king' of Dan. 11:36. (3) The true meaning of the word 'indignation' in 8:19 & 11:36. (4) The historical connection between the 'sale of the land' in 11:39 AND the 'willful king' of 11:36. (5) The separation of the prophecy between ancient and modern. This approximate1900 years time span is seen between 11:39 and 40. . The first mention of 'sealing' is seen in 8:26, where the Archangel Gabriel instructs Daniel to 'shut thou up the vision, for it shall be for many days.' Gabriel is referring to Daniel's vision of chapter 8. It seems the 'shutting up' of that vision contributes to the later 'sealing' of the entire book. In 12: 4, the Archangel Gabriel instructed Daniel to 'shut up the words and seal the, BOOK ( even) to the time of the end.' (KJV) Note: The word 'even' is a suppled word as it does not appear in the original. The Septuagint (LXX) uses the word 'to' instead of 'even.' Gabriel instructed Daniel to seal the book in 12:4, but he tells Daniel in 12:9 to-- : 'Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.' Gabriel must have assumed that Daniel had effectively 'sealed' the bo
