๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ‘‘ Does Daniel Describe Today’s Increase In Knowledge?

โ€œDoes Daniel 12:4 describe the increase in knowledge that we see today?โ€

โ€œBut thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book,ย even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, andย knowledge shall be increased.โ€

We are living in the time of the mystery (Eph. 3:1-9), notย in the time of the fulfillment of prophecy, so nothing in theย prophetic book of Daniel describes anything that is going onย today.

Since the previous verses say that the saved in Israel willย rise from the dead (v. 2) and โ€œthey that be wiseโ€ shall shine inย the kingdom of heaven on earth and โ€œturn many to righteousnessโ€ย (v. 3), the โ€œknowledgeโ€ of verse 4 must refer to knowledgeย of the Scriptures, the only knowledge that can turn peopleย to righteousness. In that day, โ€œthe earth shall be full of theย knowledge of the LORDโ€ (Isa. 11:9) since knowledge of Himย will be increased.

The subsequent context bears this out as well. When Danielย is told that โ€œthe words are closed up and sealed till the time ofย the endโ€ (v. 9), it is in the end times that โ€œthe wise shall understandโ€ย (v. 10), and it is then that knowledge of the Scripturesย shall be increased, and Godโ€™s people will use that knowledgeย to turn many to righteousness (Dan.ย 11:33). source
