The Morning Has Come

And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. (Dan 12:11-12)

Flatly stated, the morning has come is a declaration of no real value, simply an observation that it is indeed between those hours of the day that we call morning. On the other hand, it may well be a sign to us that the long night is over, the sun is rising and the day begins anew! We live, the darkness is passing, our Savior draws near in His glorious appearing!

In the revelation given to Daniel, there is a timetable given to the prophet that has an anomaly in it. The darkness of the Tribulation is a certain number of days, and then there are a few more days added on. That is like the morning after the long darkness. Things happen in this morning, but it was not revealed to Daniel what they would be. The day of the reign of Christ is about to come, but first there seems this pause in the morning. An awakening perhaps, such as we do of a morning where coffee is made, breakfast is prepared, and we put ourselves in readiness to face the day with hearts full of hope for the rejoicing that will greet our Savior.

No, not every day I have begun has included that feeling, but those were normal days, the ones we tick off on the calendar after their passing; days that might end with just a little disappointment, no He didn't return today. But not every day will be like that. One fine and glorious morning we will see Him, the glorious Son of God in His majesty coming with the light of His great new day.

Yes, one day soon!
