“At that time there shall arise Michael, the great prince, guardian of your people;
It shall be a time unsurpassed in distress since the nation began until that time.
At that time your people shall escape, everyone who is found written in the book.
Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake;
Some to everlasting life, others to reproach and everlasting disgrace.
But those with insight shall shine brightly like the splendor of the firmament,
And those who lead the many to justice shall be like the stars forever.” Daniel (12:1-3)
Daniel addressed Israel before Christ’s birth about The Great Tribulation, the Resurrection of the Dead and Eternal Life.
The first verse asserts the Archangel Michael will rescue the righteous, written in the Book of Life, at the end of the Great Tribulation.
The intermediate verse mentions Eternal Life: the righteous will resurrect for Heaven and the wicked for Hell.
The last verse indicates the reward after the resurrection for the righteous and God’s servants.
