Lesson 13 - From Dust to the Stars

Recommended Posts


Memory Text: Daniel 12:3 New International Version Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.


Sunday – Michael, Our Prince

Daniel 12:1 New Living Translation At that time Michael, the archangel who stands guard over your nation, will arise. Then there will be a time of anguish greater than any since nations first came into existence. But at that time every one of your people whose name is written in the book will be rescued.

Daniel 12:1 SDA BIBLE COMMENTARY Time of trouble. When Christ’s mediation ceases and God’s Spirit is withdrawn from men, then all the pent-up powers of darkness descend with indescribable fury upon the world. There will be a scene of strife such as no pen can picture (see GC 613, 614).

Romans 8:34 God’s WORD Translation Who will condemn them? Christ has died, and more importantly, he was brought back to life. Christ is in the honored position—the one next to God the Father on the heavenly throne. Christ also intercedes for us.

Hebrews 7:25 Christian Standard Bible Therefore, he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, since he always lives to intercede for them.


Monday – Written in the Book

Daniel 12:1 New Century Version At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will stand up. There will be a time of much trouble, the worst time since nations have been on earth, but your people will be saved. Everyone whose name is written in God’s book will be saved.


Tuesday – The Resurrection

Daniel 12:2-3 Holman Christian Standard Bible Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to eternal life, and some to shame and eternal contempt. 3 Those who are wise will shine like the bright expanse of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.

Daniel 12:2 SDA BIBLE COMMENTARY A special resurrection precedes Christ’s second advent. “All who have died in the faith of the third angel’s message” will arise at that time. In addition, those who beheld with mockery Christ’s crucifixion, and those who have most violently opposed the people of God, will be brought forth from their graves to see the fulfillment of the divine promise and the triumph of truth.

Romans 8:18 Easy-to-Read Version We have sufferings now, but these are nothing compared to the great glory that will be given to us.

Hebrews 2:14-15 Contemporary English Version 14 We are people of flesh and blood. That is why Jesus became one of us. He died to destroy the devil, who had power over death. 15 But he also died to rescue all of us who live each day in fear of dying.


Wednesday – The Sealed Book

Daniel 12:4 Complete Jewish Bible “But you, Daniel, keep these words secret, and seal up the book until the time of the end. Many will rush here and there as knowledge increases.”

John 14:29 English Standard Version And now I have told you before it takes place, so that when it does take place you may believe.


Thursday – The Waiting Time

Daniel 12:5-13 New English Translation 5 I, Daniel, watched as two others stood there, one on each side of the river. 6 One said to the man clothed in linen who was above the waters of the river, “When will the end of these wondrous events occur?” 7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen who was over the waters of the river as he raised both his right and left hands to the sky and made an oath by the one who lives forever: “It is for a time, times, and half a time. Then, when the power of the one who shatters the holy people has been exhausted, all these things will be finished.” 8 I heard, but I did not understand. So I said, “Sir, what will happen after these things?” 9 He said, “Go, Daniel. For these matters are closed and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many will be purified, made clean, and refined, but the wicked will go on being wicked. None of the wicked will understand, though the wise will understand. 11 From the time that the daily sacrifice is removed and the abomination that causes desolation is set in place, there are 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is the one who waits and attains to the 1,335 days. 13 But you should go your way until the end. You will rest and then at the end of the days you will arise to receive what you have been allotted.”

Daniel 12:11 SDA BIBLE COMMENTARY Those who hold to the view that the “daily” represents “paganism” subtract 1290 from 1798 and arrive at the date 508. They see in the events surrounding this date, such as the conversion of Clovis, the king of the Franks, to the Catholic faith, and in the victory over the Goths, an important stage in the establishment of the supremacy of the Catholic Church in the West.

Daniel 12:12 SDA BIBLE COMMENTARY Waiteth. This implies that the following prophetic period may be expected to continue beyond the end of the 1290 days. If the 1290 and the 1335 days begin at the same time, the latter period reaches to the year 1843, a significant date in relationship to the great advent awakening in America, generally known as the Millerite movement.


Friday – Further Thought

John 14:29 New International Reader’s Version I have told you now before it happens. Then when it does happen, you will believe.
