From the booklet Daniel—Unsealed at Last!
By Gerald Flurry

God’s time has come to reveal some of the most profound prophecies ever in the book of Daniel. It should inspire spellbinding wonder and awe in God’s people and the world. You will have to study hard to understand and retain this astonishing revelation.

Satan clearly understands what this revelation means for his evil plans and for God’s Work. He exerts Herculean effort to stop such vital prophecy.

Daniel taught Nebuchadnezzar that “there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets” (Daniel 2:28). This prophet chastened himself before God gave him those secrets (Daniel 10:3-5, 12). Those secrets opened Daniel to Satan’s most vicious attack!

“But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia” (verse 13). Satan fought against the two great archangels, Michael and Gabriel, for 21 days. It took that long for God’s two most powerful archangels to prevail! Satan was trying to prevent God’s secrets from being revealed.

“Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days” (verse 14). This vision was for the latter days—the time we are living in now. In fact, the whole book is for this end time (Daniel 12:4, 9). Satan tried extremely hard to keep God’s vision from being revealed to Daniel. How much harder would he work to stop these secrets from being revealed and proclaimed today—since they are for the time we are living in right now? Perhaps he would try about a hundred times harder.

Daniel had to fast to hang on to those secrets. And we have to stay close to God and use His power today or we will lose God’s precious secrets—His revealed truth. We stand no chance against Satan without God’s power!

“Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me, And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me. Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come. But I will show thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince” (Daniel 10:18-21). The prince of Persia is Satan. Here Satan is struggling to change the mind of a Persian king and shift world power to work out his Earth-ruling strategy.

But before Satan did that, he tried to destroy God’s secrets given to Daniel! His first priority is always to attack God’s people—God’s secrets.

Both archangels, Michael and Gabriel, are fighting against a very powerful devil.

The demons, “rulers of the darkness,” fight and wrestle for men’s minds—especially the minds of God’s own people! (Ephesians 6:12). That is why God’s last Church era becomes lukewarm and blind (Revelation 3:14-19). Where you find God’s truth, you always find Satan’s strongest attack!

Like God, Satan finds a man to work through. Satan is the power behind both the political and spiritual beasts of Revelation 13. “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? … And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon” (verses 4, 11). Satan will have absolute control of the world’s greatest superpower at that time. The whole Earth will worship it (verse 8).

Satan uses this beast power to make war against God’s lukewarm saints and overcomes them (verse 7). This evil power is being built in Europe even as you read this. In fact, it already virtually controls Europe.

The good news is that this same power will be conquered by Jesus Christ. But look at the suffering Satan inflicts before Christ gets here. God will allow this suffering because people won’t heed His warning message now—even His own lukewarm Church!

Christ promises His people that they can share His throne—if they overcome as He overcame (Revelation 3:21). Since Christ overcame Satan, we must also overcome Satan—or we will fail to make it into God’s Kingdom. There is an awesome reward for those called today. But it is not easy!

The new revelation from Daniel taught in this booklet exposes Satan’s evil much more clearly. All his raging power will be aimed first of all against God’s end-time Philadelphians (verses 7-22). We have received this staggering revelation. Now we must digest and proclaim it to Satan’s world. Only we are standing up and conquering the devil. That is why God continues to reveal such powerful truth only to His loyal Philadelphians. This is God’s way of encouraging us to continue to fight against Satan and this world.

Most people are unaware that there even is a devil. That is why Satan is the god of this world and deceives the whole world (2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 12:9).

Today, Satan is full of wrath because he knows he has but a short time to rule (Revelation 12:12). Therefore, he is on a lion-roaring rampage (1 Peter 5:8). The mind-defying problems in this world are no coincidence. And it will get much worse very quickly. Human beings must learn how helpless they are without God’s power in a world ruled by Satan.

God has now revealed prophecy from Daniel that should cause us to soar spiritually! Satan is no match for the God of Gabriel, Michael and Daniel. Now we must deliver this message and give the world a taste of God’s phenomenal power!

A casual reading of this new truth is not nearly enough to understand. You can’t comprehend this profound revelation unless you really study this booklet. If you do that, your Bible will come alive in a specific and detailed way. You will become spiritually rich and very inspired!
