2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. – Daniel 12:2-3
The promise of the resurrection didn’t just arrive on the scene with Jesus. Jesus is the one who confirmed that God will do it at the day that Daniel spoke of here. This is our source of hope for beyond the trouble of this life. This is not the final word. Those who are wise speaks of those who follow Jesus and live according to God’s way. They are the ones who thereby turn many others to righteousness. It is this hope that gives us strength to push on through even the toughest of days. God is faithful and He is with you.
