Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

With the removal of the restrainer Michael stands up - meaning that in heaven there is one particular unity element preserved against antichrist's static triple - the device of the dragon against whom Michael fights and ejects from heaven in the passage in revelation. If unity stands firm in heaven then we are given the "little help" promised us earlier in the text. The dragon fails to stand against Michael and is ejected from heaven, so that our reference octal and our election's status of floating unity in heavenly places is intact - Michael truly stands for the people of God.

At the end of these attempts to instantiate as corrupt the person of Christ into a physical "god of forces" (of battle) using the last devices of the trumpets - now fulfilled (as we see in the king of the north and the 1290 days) we move into the era of the image made to the beast (the 1335 days) within which the scarlet beast of revelation goes to its destruction and into perdition (sin.)

Many are tried and made white - in being clothed with the righteousness of Christ, to whom they hold fast as if there were no lack of the restrainer - overcoming the devil in the world with their faith on Christ.

Every person whose name is written in the book of life is saved and this is certain with the judgement to come after the last of these 1335 days is fufilled. Jesus in the vision does not reveal the time - stating that it is under a seal with the "time, times and half a time". And Jesus will return at this judgement to sit upon it over all. Those in the book inherit rewards whilst those without inherit nothing but destruction.

The judgement occurs when it is impossible for the people of God to meet in fellowship, then the great tribulation will be over. The great tribulation is based on the duration of the seals wherein the restraint upon the people of God is lessened so that only those with the greater love for the truth will stand firm in Christ whilst the others fall away to a strong delusion - having not enough love for the truth.

The wise therefore shine forever and those that understand instruct many. Daniel, is told to shut up the words and to seal them up (write in his own hand and words) - they will remain so sealed until the time of the end when they can be researched with wide reference and study.

Daniel asks when these things will end, He is told there are 1290 days (the time period following the removal of the restrainer) from the fourth seal and a further 1335 days following the instantiation of the wormwood device of the trumpets that parallel the pale horse - the correct analogues in revelation to these passages.

The 1290 days is the combination of the angel's circuit and the ministry of the two witnesses; and the 1335 days the dialgoue between the beast and the multitude in the church - the left and right are the two horns of the false prophet, in that the false prophet spirit does not distinguish between the two. As north and south they are in reversal as left and right hands/octals. or "Earth" and "the sand of the Sea".

Daniel is lastly told to rest and he is assured that he is to stand in his election at the time of the end.
