"...I Daniel alone saw..."

  • The revelation was given only to the Lord's chosen servant, yet the effect of the presence of a being from heaven was felt by those who were with the prophet. (Acts 9:3-7; 22:6-9) (4BC 858)
  • For three weeks he thus sought for light and truth. Then it was that he looked up and beheld the Son of God by his side, the same who appeared to John on the Isle of Patmos. (Revelation 1:15-18). The brightness which shone round about Michael was too great for the eyes of the companions of Daniel, and they hastened to hide themselves. The countenance of Christ was like lightning, and as He gazed upon the prostrate form of Daniel, the other men fled for their lives. But what would have been death to those who harbored sin, was life to the one whose character was pure. The dross had been consumed before, and the light shone upon the prophet as sunlight on a mirror. (I Peter 1:7). (SNH 178)
