What Happened to Daniel, the prophet, a most precious man in God’s eyes?
After over 70 years exiled in Babylon, near 90 years old, Daniel was told by the angel foretelling future events that have come true about world rulers who had authority over God’s people before and after Jesus in the last verse12:13 “But as for you, go on to the end. You will rest, but you will stand up for your lot at the end of the days.”
Daniel died and his flesh wasted away in the grave. There was no hope of Heavenly resurrection in his day. There is no eternal soul or spirit that survives the death of the flesh.
How do I Know? Verse 12:1,2 “During that time Michael will stand up, the great prince who is standing in behalf of your people. And there will occur a time of distress such as has not occurred since there came to be a nation until that time. And during that time your people will escape, everyone who is found written down in the book.2 And many of those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up, some to everlasting life and others to reproach and to everlasting contempt”
Also at Ecclesiastes 9:5 “For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all, nor do they have any more reward, because all memory of them is forgotten.”
verse 10 “Whatever your hand finds to do, do with all your might, for there is no work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the Grave, where you are going.”
The “prince” Michael is the only Archangel who is the first creation by God alone, the only begotten son of God. This verse is conclusive evidence that Michael is the powerful archangel who gave his angelic life to allow God to transfer his character into the womb of Mary and be born a sinless defenseless male child. Born, Jesus, he was all human, Fathered by God, who grew to be the same as the first man, Adam. After Jesus dedicated his life and publicly made that known by total submersion in water, baptism. God, then restored his pre-human memory.
In verse 1 we see that Daniel’s people (those taught by Jehovah God alive that day) are delivered through this global event.
Verse 2 clearly states that after Armageddon, as Jesus stands up a Earth’s new King, there will occur a “resurrection”.
If we all had a spirit or eternal soul there would be no need for a resurrection which is a bringing to life after death. If we were spirits like ghost, we would need an ascension to Heaven, just like God gave Jesus after he had been kill, lay dead for parts of 3 days, then resurrected to life as a spirit. God clothed him with flesh, then 40 days later God gave Jesus an ascension to Heaven where he was granted immortality and to sit at the right hand of God until the end of the Gentile Days.
Jesus, invited Christian to apply themselves to his teachings that they might become Kings and Priests in Heaven with him. How did this happen? God takes the character they had with all its memories and recreates them in a spirits body, like the body Jesus was given upon his ascension.
How many are invited to Heaven? Jesus and 144,000 will make up the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom is an extension of God’s Universal Sovereignty. God, the Holiest of all beings cannot converse with sinful man, He uses these spirits to interact with the sinful people who are delivered through Armageddon. The Kingdom will remove the physical effects of sin from their bodies, restoring limbs, eyesight, hearing, teeth, voice and hair. The Kingdom will teach these the knowledge needed to live forever in what will become Paradise on Earth.
The Apostles spoke of a human resurrection:
John 5:28 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.
We are acquitted of our sins at death, so these works and judgement will be after they are restored to life again.
Acts 24:15 “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”
Unrighteous people cannot enter the Heavens with the Holy God, so this must speak of a resurrection to life after Armageddon. Both John and Paul are foretelling the only hope mankind is given (except for the 144,000). The next 1000 years after Armageddon is termed Judgement Day, yet, just as Jesus promised the criminals hung beside him, they will be in Paradise when Jesus is King. The dead will be raised by God, educated in what God expects of them, in time, they will either submit to God’s moral code or they just will not be there anymore, you will notice their place, but they just won’t be.
Matthew 19:28 “Jesus said to them: “Truly I say to you, in the re-creation, when the Son of man sits down on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will sit on 12 thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Israel.”
Revelation 7:4 “And I heard the number of those who were sealed, 144,000, sealed out of every tribe of the sons of Israel”
Revelation 14: “Then I saw, and look! the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who have his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads.2 I heard a sound coming out of heaven like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder; and the sound that I heard was like singers who accompany themselves by playing on their harps.3 And they are singing what seems to be a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders, and no one was able to master that song except the 144,000, who have been bought from the earth.4 These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins. These are the ones who keep following the Lamb no matter where he goes. These were bought from among mankind as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb,”
What is shown here?
Daniel was told he would rest in death.
There are no thoughts or works after we die.
Only 144,000 out of some 25–30 billion lives were invited to Heaven to serve as Kings and Priests over those who live after Armageddon. These will never die, they will act as counselors to those who will listen, they will act in authority to those who won’t.
That mankind does not have an eternal soul or a spirit that escapes death. This also proves eternal torment in Hell is a slanderous lie repeated by churches around the world. There are no ghost or any life or thought after death outside of what is described here..
There will be a resurrection after Armageddon, which is very near, where the dead will receive a new sinless body with the same character and continuity of thought with their last thoughts and memory.
The Bible supports what I have written here, it is the Truth God has written in the Bible. The World of religions and churches have all been misled and mislead. Understanding this is only by those drawn by God, all others will not accept this as truth and argue or find fault with it.
God’s purpose for the physical universal and the carefully crafted Earth was to add a fleshly son to His family of hundreds of millions of angels. His purpose has not changed, only the time He has sat on the sidelines allowing Satan to show how mankind’s life will be better without God’s involved, as Satan promised Eve in the Garden. 7000 years to establish this legal precedent is nothing in God’s sight, a mere week.
What has God promised?
No more human death, people will lives will be as the days of a tree, some trees live thousands of years or forever when Adamic sin is finished off.
No One will ever get sick.
There will be eternal peace, even among the animals.
People will be allotted land and build houses on what will be theirs forever.
God will bless the Earth, remove the curse and restoring Earth’s ability to grow food instead of weeds.
God will heal all the emotional problems we have and we will never cry because of pain, rather from extreme joy.
Isaiah 11:6″The wolf will reside for a while with the lamb, And with the young goat the leopard will lie down, And the calf and the lion and the fattened animal will all be together; And a little boy will lead them.7 The cow and the bear will feed together, And their young will lie down together. The lion will eat straw like the bull.8 The nursing child will play over the lair of a cobra, And a weaned child will put his hand over the den of a poisonous snake.9 They will not cause any harm Or any ruin in all my holy mountain, Because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah As the waters cover the sea”

They will do no harm nor cause any ruin in all my holy mountain,” says Jehovah.”

The former things have passed away”
