“Daniel’s History Lesson”

Daniel-111

“At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon.  He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape.  He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels.  But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.” ~Daniel 11: 40-45

Daniel 11 - Sunday June 9, 2013

DANIEL Ch. 11 Gives us prophesies of future wars & kings, but the prophesy concerning Antiochus Epiphanes & the abomination of desolation which defiled the Jewish temple (around 168 B.C.) concerned more than Antiochus; it was also a prophecy of what the Antichrist will do during the Great Tribulation (Rev.13). Antiochus was a “type” of the Antichrist, but Jesus made it clear that this prophecy of Daniel also spoke of the future, so He warns all His disciples, even those of us in the 21st century, of the events prophesied in Daniel that concern the future Antichrist. (Mat 24:15) It is one example of double fulfillment, or “near” and “far” prophecy. There is a reference to the actions of Antiochus, but a further reference to the actions of Antichrist. These are more amazing prophecies given in such great detail from our God who holds the future.

Prophecy & Spiritual Warfare – Daniel 10 – Sunday, June 2, 2013

Daniel 10 will give us valuable insight into the realm of Spiritual War. Daniel was astounded by the magnitude of the vision he saw, and he collapsed on the ground. The message he was given, from One who touched him said, “O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be unto
you; be strong” Daniel then said, “You have strengthened me.”
When the Lord touches us with His great love, God will take away all
fear, and He will give us peace. His amazing love will strengthen us,
spiritually, emotionally, and often physically. How powerful it is for me to
know that I am loved by God.   

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

daniel

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

Sunday Morning Daniel 7:

prophecy_little-horn[1]

NEBUCHADNEZZAR had a dream Daniel interpreted as the future world kingdoms (Daniel Chapter 2). Here, in Chapter 7, Daniel has a dream about these same kingdoms, only from his spiritual perspective the kingdoms are seen as savage beasts, not a man. The lion corresponds to the head of gold, which is Babylon, and the man’s heart being given the beast may refer to the change in the king after being delivered from his insanity, and he praises and honors the Living God (Dan.4). The bear would be the Medo-Persian Empire, and the three ribs refer to Babylon, Egypt & Libya that they conquered. The leopard is the Greek Empire of Alexander the Great, who swiftly conquered the world in only ten years. It had four heads because the empire was divided among four generals after Alexander died at the age of 32. The 4th beast, with teeth of iron, would be Rome. The 10 horns correspond to the 10 toes, representing a ten nation confederacy on earth during the Great Tribulation. The little horn with a big mouth (Antichrist) will die a fiery death. Revelation reveals how Antichrist comes on the scene and is cast into the lake of fire. God makes these predictions through a Babylonian king, a Hebrew prophet & the apostle John over more than 600 years. But it isn’t difficult for our God, the Creator of all things, who exists outside of time.

Sunday Morning, Daniel 6: No Compromise

Daniel continued to do what he had done since he was a young man Although he knew it could mean a death sentence. He prayed and gave thanks to God out in the open, with nothing to hide. Daniel was about 88 years old by this time, and he had lived a life devoted to God from the time he was a boy in Israel. Daniel prospered because of his faith in God, it made no difference who the rulers were; whether Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon, Darius the Mede or Cyrus the Persian. He had lived an uncompromising life for 88 years and he wasn’t going to change now. Good habits formed early become the basis for strength and stability later on in life.       

Sunday Morning, Daniel 5

In the same hour the fingers of a man’s hand appeared and wrote opposite the lamp stand on the plaster of the wall of the king’s palace; and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote. Then the king’s countenance changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his hips were loosened and his knees knocked against each other.
