TOPIC: ARE YOU WISE?

TEXT: Daniel 12:5-13

KEY VERSE:
“Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand” – (Daniel 12:10).

The passage for our consideration marks the climax of eschatological events as divinely revealed to Daniel. Precisely, it is a compact and prophetic announcement of the resurrection of the dead, the rapture and the great tribulation with a comforting assurance to Daniel that he shall be among the redeemed at the end. However, our key verse echoes explicitly the attitudes and lot of the wise (the righteous) and the wicked (the sinner and backslider). The wise shall hear, understand, believe and be saved (purified and made white). But the wicked shall remain adamant in his wickedness. Therefore, the great and eternally relevant question is: are you wise?

The wise is everyone who hears, believes and accepts the gospel by repenting of his sins and accepting Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour and Lord. He is the one that builds his house upon the rock to withstand all climatic conditions. The wicked is the sinner or backslider who turns deaf ears at the gospel. The wise shall resurrect into everlasting life and shine forever in heaven while the wicked shall resurrect into everlasting shame and contempt in hell.

Many, today, in their inordinate quest for temporal fortune, fame and fantasies of the contemporary world, despise the Bible and treat it with disdain at the expense of their eternal purity, peace, prosperity and pleasure in heaven. Even some people who had received the good news and were saved, are now reveling in their backsliding or outright apostasy.

Friend, what shall it profit you, if you gain the whole world and lose your soul at the end? Be wise like Daniel whose eternal saintliness and security are pronounced in the concluding verse of our text. Repent now, live a righteous life daily and secure your eternal joy in Christ.
