"...a man greatly beloved..."

  • This was the second time that Daniel had been so wonderfully reassured of God's love for him (Daniel 9:23). (4BC 858-859)

"...stand upright..."

  • So it was with Gabriel's touch. He who stood in the presence of God (Luke 1:19), was so filled with life that as he laid his hand on man, a thrill of life was felt in every nerve. It may be so with beings to-day. The follower of Christ should have the life-current so strong within him that sin is rebuked, and disease driven from him (Mark 16:17, 18). "A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee" (Psalm 91:7), is the promise. Christ came that we might have an abundance of life, the cup full to overflowing (II Timothy 1:10). We do not half realize our privilege (John 10:10). (SNH 180)
