End Times or Not?

I think a good question to answer would be, "Are we truly in the end times"? This is a valid question. Many people have been looking to scripture for the last several decades to figure out if the prophecies of Daniel or Revelation are coming to pass. I am not one to beat around the bush. Therefore, I will tell you we are in the end times and I will support it with scripture.

In the Book of Daniel, God gives Daniel several prophecies concerning the end of days and we will look at them now. Bear with me......

Daniel 12:4
4But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Daniel 12:9
9And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

What exactly is God telling Daniel to do in Daniel 12:4? He is telling him to encrypt the words he is writing because the end time generation will be exceedingly smart.

In Daniel 12:9, God tells him to not worry about what he is writing because the words are encrypted/sealed. Only people living in the end times would come to understand the prophecy in which he was writing.

Now that I have established that God sealed the words of these prophecies and we now understand them then I say we live in the end times. This might seem a little confusing. However, prophecy is like a puzzle and we are starting to put the pieces together. A little at a time you will start to see the big picture and how close we are to the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ!
