12 And at that time [of the end] Michael shall arise, the great [angelic] prince who defends and has charge of your [Daniel’s] people. And there shall be a time of trouble, straitness, and distress such as never was since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the Book [of God’s plan for His own].
Imagine this and no disrespect intended.
It’s the year 2050 and time has run out for the human race on the face of the earth. The stench of their sin reaches heaves gates. The people are so technology wise and seem to believe they are so cleaver and that there just isn’t a God. The odd person still preaching about the Lord Jesus – is being hunted down, persecuted and made fools of. Life on earth has become really challenging for people that don’t bear the mark of the beast.
The council gathered in the Lords presence and stood as God walked into the great hall and took His place on the throne. The Lord Jesus is seated next to Him. Michael steps up and forward. As he bows his head and waits for the Lord to address him, his wings spread out. The Angels shout in one voice “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty!!!”
God speaks to Michael “You have to go and gather my children.” Michael looks at the Lord God and then to Jesus the Lord. “My Lord God, Your will is my command.”
Michael turns around and walks out of the great hall toward the doors. “Michael” the Lord Jesus calls out his name. Stopping in his tracks he turns to the Lord and waits. Jesus the Lord is standing next to him. “Be gentle with the children, the aged and the weak.”
Michael arrives on the earth, there is destruction, confusion, wars, oppression and all kinds of trouble. People are distressed and the nations are at war with each other. Michael looks at the hurt and pain on many of the people’s faces. There loveless lives reveal the anger and disappointment and they are shouting hateful chants at strange people.
The angels and Michael start to gather the people who have been written in the Book of life. People in hordes and then the unsaved realises what is happening and start rushing toward the saved. They want to come along too. The time ran out for them, too late.……
