Daniel Chapter 9 “Touched by Gabriel”

Daniel

The Angel Gabriel interrupted Daniel’s fervent prayer and outlined 70, seven year time periods, called “weeks” determined for Israel and Jerusalem (490 years). The first 7 “weeks” were the 49 years of rebuilding Jerusalem. The next 62 “weeks” would be the 434 “silent” years between the Old and New Testaments, until the coming of Messiah and His execution (Matt.26-28). Then comes the Church Age, which is the age in which we live today (Matt.13). The Rapture of the Church will end the church age (Matt.24:36-51 & Jn. 14:3). This will usher in the 70th “week” Jesus called “the Great Tribulation” (Matt.24:21, Rev.6-19)). That “week” will end when Christ appears with His Bride, and defeats the Beast and his armies (Ps.2 Rev.19).

“And the vision of the evenings and mornings
Which was told is true;
Therefore seal up the vision,
For it refers to many days in the future.

Daniel 8:26

Daniel 7

A Daniel

Daniel’s vision of the fall of the Greek empire and the death of Alexander the Great, was so
clear that liberal so-called scholars say that the Book of Daniel couldn’t have
been written by Daniel. He couldn’t have possibly known about these empires
unless he was writing after the fact. But when the Dead Sea Scrolls were
discovered in 1947 it presented a problem for them because the Book of Daniel
is part of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and they are much older than the so-called
scholars estimate the time when Daniel was written.
And the so-called scholars have an even bigger problem to deal with when
claiming Daniel is a forgery; Jesus quoted from the book of Daniel and said it
was written by Daniel (Matt.24:15). Would Jesus Christ quote from a forgery, or
would He not know who wrote the book?

Sunday Morning, Daniel 6

I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel.

For He is the living God,
And steadfast forever;
His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed,
And His dominion shall endure to the end.
He delivers and rescues,
And He works signs and wonders
In heaven and on earth,
Who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.

Daniel 6:26-27
