After the command to seal them was given by God, it was revealed in the Bible that the prophecies would not remain sealed up forever, but would again be unsealed for understanding at the time of the end. Now, twenty-five hundred years after they were sealed up in ancient Babylon, the prophecies have been unsealed in modern Israel. The event used to announce the unsealing to the world occurred in Jerusalem during the Six-Day War, namely, the return of the Temple Mount to Jewish sovereignty on June 7, 1967. The eschatological significance of that event went unnoticed by biblical scholars and theologians at the time it happened, but it has since turned out to be the key that was needed to unlock and understand all of the Danielic prophecies. Using the interpretative key that was revealed for the world to see when the Temple Mount was liberated by Israel in 1967, biblical scholar and sacred chronologist Dan Bruce has interpreted the Danielic prophecies anew for this generation. His Bible-based exposition fully explains the seven chrono-specific predictive prophecies that were sealed up in the Book of Daniel so long ago. His fresh new interpretations are cogent and unique, and give undeniable proof that the God of the Bible always has been, and still is, actively engaged in the affairs of mankind. By showing how the past two-thousand-plus years of Jewish history were foretold by the chrono-specific prophecies in Daniel and how, one by one, those prophecies have been fulfilled in history exactly as predicted-with some being fulfilled as recently as 1967-this book will open the eyes and ears of anyone who questions the reality of Gods sovereign presence in the world today.
