In text 1 we find the vision of a prophet who, at the time of future times, when God announces the proclaimed hour of his coming. The first question is, can a man know the hour of Christ's return? Reading the text 2 we have that the verb is in the present at the time of Christ " nobody knows " 2 , so it is possible that someone in the future will know the " day and hour " 2 , since when Christ comes back they will have to know the day and the time, because they are there, then it is free that God can say the day and time in a future time to text 2 , so that nobody would ever know the verb of text 2 , it would have to be, (nobody will know), determining future , which does not occur in the text.
We see that Paul in text 3 , heard words " which it is not lawful for man to refer " 3 , so Paul knew something that he would not put in reference, be it the hour of Christ's coming or other things. We know that Paul quotes the text in verse 4 " Afterwards, we who are alive will be caught up together with them " 4
We must keep in mind that in the field of visions, the prophet can travel through facts and times, as if he were there but not being. In a vision of the times, both Daniel and João visualize times and facts witnessing the events, without having the obligation to be in all the events during their life. This is the natural way of a vision, to witness something without necessarily having to be in the time or place of the vision.
When Paul had the vision he was in the scene of the vision, but it was not in the fact, because it was a vision, vision and facts are different, the vision is a dazzling window to the past or future, the fact is the time linearly run for the scene stipulated in God's plans. Note that what Paul mentions " which it is not lawful for man to mention " 3 , is very similar to " in a way that no language is capable of describing " 1 , of course, such heavenly visions have no correct words for man to refer to.
We see that the prophet says " I heard the proclaimed hour, but I had no memory of that hour after I left the vision. " 1 , we see that this happens when God tries to hide future facts for the plan as it happens in the text in 5, in which Nebuchadnezzar had a vision of future times, in a dream, and so the dream left his mind as he quotes " I had a dream, and to know the dream my spirit is disturbed " 5 , he knew he had a dream, but not he remembered what it was like, but his spirit was disturbed to remember the dream, and he most wanted the interpretation of the dream as well.
Such factors demonstrate that God seals memories, according to his will to do according to his purpose. And it doesn't depend on the person, it depends on whether God wants someone to get information or not.
One thing is clear, text 1 , remote that all those who achieve salvation will be in a position of extreme happiness. The main purpose of the text in 1, is that the joy of the saved is impossible to describe. But God left only the pertinent information for individuals to seek to prepare in the time that is called today, so as not to wait for a change of life at a time later stipulated.
1. This is a portion of the paragraph. Declarations on pages. 11 and 27 [p. 15 and 34 of the current edition] refer at the same time. They contain everything that has already been shown to me regarding the definite time of the Lord's coming. I do not have the slightest knowledge as to the time announced by the voice of God. I heard the proclaimed hour, but I had no memory of that hour after I left the vision. Scenes of such emotion, solemn interest, passed through me in a way that no language can describe. It was all a living reality for me, because immediately after it, the great white cloud appeared, upon which the Son of man was seated. Letter 38, 1888.
2. Mat 24:36 Of that day and hour, however, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
3.2Co 12: 4 who was taken to paradise, and heard ineffable words, which it is not lawful for man to refer.
4. 1Th 4:17 Then we who are alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will be with the Lord forever.
5. Dan 2: 3 And the king said to them, I had a dream, and to know the dream my spirit is troubled.
Dan 2: 5 The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, This word of mine is irrevocable if you do not let me know the dream and its interpretation, you will be shattered, and your houses will be made a dump;
