Daniel 12:4


How do you interpret the prophecy at Daniel 12:4 that states, “As for you, Daniel, keep the words secret, and seal up the book until the time of the end.  Many will rove about, and the true knowledge will become abundant.”?



Using the AV, the words are slightly different.


“But thou O Daniel, Shut up the words and seal the book, until the times of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased”.

The simplistic meaning to myself is that the prophecy will not be understood in depth until the end of this present “Age time”.  That travel and knowledge will increase exponentially before that time arrives.  That has happened to an enormous degree already, so we should be looking at other signs to correlate, which one can do no better than examine our Lord’s words in Matt. 24–25!
