“He said, ‘Behold, I will make known to you what shall be at the latter end of the indignation, for it refers to the appointed time of the end…And at the latter end of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their limit, a king of bold face, one who understands riddles, shall arise. His power shall be great – but not by his own power; and he shall cause fearful destruction and shall succeed in what he does, and destroy mighty men and the people who are the saints.” Daniel 8:19, 23-24
My kids helped serve the local veterans at the annual VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) Veterans Day dinner. They told me that the dinner was very well received and attended. I am glad that those veterans felt honored. I initially was happy that the hall had been packed. However, I found that fact a little depressing upon retrospection.
