The Energizing Touch and Warfare of the Man - Daniel 10:18-20

For the third time, Christ touches Daniel and speaks words to strengthen him. “Do not be afraid, O man highly esteemed,” he said. “Peace! Be strong now; be strong.” “Peace” is the result of sin being atoned, of guilt being taken away, and all fear being removed. The cleansed sinner, who is strengthened by the Lord, is qualified to hear Him speak and to speak for Him.


The man answers his own rhetorical question, “Do you know why I have come to you?”
Soon I will return to fight against the prince of Persia, and when I go, the prince of Greece will come; but first I will tell you what is written in the Book of Truth. (No one supports me against them except Michael, your prince...)”

When Christ returned, accompanied by Michael, to fight on Israel’s behalf against the prince of Persia and his forces, the prince of Greece came. This prince is either Alexander the Great or an evil angelic being. Insight into this invisible war provides the background of the book of Esther, where the great conflict over the preservation of God’s people is apparent.

What is the Book of Truth? It cannot be the Bible since Daniel has not written down the prophecy at this point. Could it be God’s Plan of the Ages, recorded in one of the books in heaven?
