Most of the prophecies in the Book of Daniel were written in obscure language, so that the full meaning of the event would not become clear until the time for fulfillment was near. One of these which has puzzled all scholars until recently is in the 12th. chapter of Daniel. It expressly deals with the time of the very end: so Its application to our day shows us where we are in history. It reads thus: " And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a. time of trouble, such as never was since there was 9 notion even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that- shall be found written In the book.
"But thou, 0 Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the Time of the End: many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased. Then I, Daniel, looked, and behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, 'How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?' And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by Him that liveth for ever, that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished."
This has been a puzzle: and to solve it, we had better start with a definition--- who are "the holy people"? First, what is meant by "holy"? Is it a person who is sanctimonious and self-righteous, who makes a six-reel production out of refusing to taste a glass of beer? No: the word means simply, "dedicated to the service of God." All men are imperfect: even King David, who is the only person God ever called "A man after Mine own heart", was an adulterer and a murderer. No, God didn't choose him because of his sins, but in spite of them: King David had sincerely dedicated his life to the service of God; and the sacrifice by Jesus-Christ-on the cross was sufficient to take care of all sins. So, "the holy people" are the race who are dedicated to the service of God, carrying out His purposes, despite their individual faults and sins. God Himself selected them: it is the same as Jesus Christ's statement to His 12 disciples, "Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you" (John 15:16) This is confirmed In many places in the Bible. In Exodus 19:6, God told our ancestors, "Ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation;" and if you think that God went back on His word because of our personal sins and failures, remember that I Peter 2:9 repeats this same comforting assurance. In Leviticus 19.6, God said, "Speak unto 9.11 the congregation of the Children of Israel, and say unto them, 'Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.' Leviticus 20:26 assures us that "Ye shall be holy unto Me: for I the Lord am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be Mine." And Deuteronomy 7:6 says, "For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth." And Isaiah 62:11-12 crowns this glorious assurance with these words: "Behold., the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, 'Say ye unto the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him. And they shall call them The Holy People, The Redeemed of the Lord." So we, the White Christians of Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian and Teutonic ancestry, should never be deceived by the vicious falsehoods of those who are trying to down-grade the White Race today.
But let's get back to Daniel. Remember that the angels had given Daniel the prophecies concerning the End of the Age and the tremendous warfare and destruction which will accompany it; and Daniel was wondering when all this would occur; and the angel answered him, "and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished." Until the last few years, these words were incomprehensible; and we did not want to believe them, because "scattering the power of the holy people" certainly prophesied nothing but trouble. Some tried to read another meaning into that word "scatter"; but it is the Hebrew word 'naw-fa' which cannot be given the meaning to expand and spread out: its meaning is to scatter, or to dash to pieces and scatter the fragments. Therefore, our power Is to be scattered, in an unfavorable sense, and then the time of trouble will be ended with our rescue by the return of Jesus Christ with the armies of heaven.
When our power was concentrated, in World Wars I and II, it was irresistible; but scattered, a little here, a little there, it can be destroyed by the enemy because there is not enough of it at any one place. And that is exactly what our enemies ere planning. One of the basic principles of warfare, centuries older than ancient Egypt, is that an army which is kept together can defeat a far larger army which has been separated into several smaller groups, by defeating each of these groups in turn. Our enemies are maneuvering us into the fatal error of scattering our forces. Many of you will remember that some far sighted patriots warned us, as much as ten years ago, that politicians in high places in our government were in the service of our enemies, and that they planed to take the United States Army out of the country, scatter it all over the world, disarm the civilians at home, and hand us over completely helpless to our enemies, and enslavement for such of us as they may permit to survive.
Now, Daniel's strange words make sense. "The power of the holy people" is already "scattered", which when completed, will make our very survival impossible, on any merely human basis: nothing but the power of God can rescue us from the consequence of our amazing folly. Yet in all this there is also a note of hope: it will not take much longer for the plot to "scatter the power of the holy people" to be completed, leaving us defenseless before our enemies. But that is exactly what brings God to the rescue, for the angel told Daniel, "when he shall have accomplished to scatter tile power of the holy people, ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE FINISHED. This is one of the signs of the Time of the End: so take courage, our God is near at hand.
