in response to reader comment: Scroll in Daniel 12

Many have extolled the cryptic undertones of Daniels 'last times' series of events, virtually of of which is centered upon the corrolary histories of nations that purport to write there own versions of who is going to win Jerusalem for themselves. Understanding that Daniel writes primarily to his own people should underscore the point of his prophetic observations: El Elyon has all power to control Israel's destiny and Daniel's testimony in the key to understanding the Apocalypse. His sealed book (Ch 12) is the key.

To get the context, begin at 11:13, then follow the progression as the plan for Israel's final conduct is timed for the last days. It is, by the assertion of many scholars more in tune with this than me, the outline by which what is going to happen around and to Israel at the hands of others is sequenced. Only this, though, when it commences is left to the LORD, since it does not begin until the Lamb is given the book, which is also coincident with the time of commencement, when the Lamb opens the seals to start it all.

In the Revelation then, is the scroll's fulfillment....et sequiter....et sequiter....et sequiter......
