"But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers."
- 1 Peter 4:7
"God in heaven who reveals secrets" (Dan. 2:28) made known to the prophet Daniel not only the entire development of world empires from the Babylonian empire all the way to the Messiah's everlasting kingdom on this earth, but also the timeline of Christ's second coming. Today we can look back at history and verify the prophecy, proving that God's word is true. What is pertinent for us today is that we are now living at the end of the age, just before the second coming of Christ.
