A Biblical Overview of Daniel – Part 5

Daniel 7 is a vital chapter that confirms what was said in Daniel 2, as well as adding to our understanding of Revelation. Without this passage, we would be harder to see what God is telling us about the Last Days. And, in case you are wondering…

Yes, we are living – right now – during the time of the Fourth Beast.

When we are done, hopefully you’ll have a better understanding of what this beast is, both now and in the future. And, we really want a better understanding of our future.

A Biblical Overview of Daniel – Part 4

I would love to jump ahead to Part 5 and talk about the prophecy in Daniel 7 that is also still in effect today – just like the image in the dream of Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 2. But, we have a few things that we can learn from Daniel 5 and 6, and some of those things help clear up a couple of questions that I had.

How did the Persians take over Babylon so quickly?

Why did the Persians keep so much of the Babylonian bureaucracy in power?

Well, we have a few answers to that, and I think that you’ll find the entire story to be interesting. Including the incredible demonstration of faith by Daniel.

A Biblical Overview Of Daniel – Part 3

Daniel 3 and 4 is a story of foolishness, pride and complete faithfulness. And, it isn’t just a little foolishness or a little pride or even a little faithfulness. In these two chapters, there are freight trains-full of each, and it’s proof that none of us can be true to God under our own power.

Today, we are going to talk about the heroism of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, and the utter and complete foolishness of King Nebuchadnezzar – who should have known not to do what he did. But like so many, he did it anyway.

But, in the end, great honor was given to God.

A Biblical Overview Of Daniel – Part 2

Normally we look to a man of God to give us important End Times prophecies, but the Lord gave this one to someone who wasn’t. Not even close. Yet, this prophecy is still being fulfilled as we speak, and will not finish its fulfillment until the Return of Our Lord.

This is the dream of Nebuchadnezzar’s great image. And, it has special significance for us to day, because that image still stands, and it charts the progress of history through today and into the future, when the Antichrist comes.

The question is, where are we in the chronology of this image?

The Red Horse Prepares To Ride

On Friday, I received news that I was hoping not to hear. At least, not for this year or any number of years after that. This news will take peace from the Earth, and that phrase should be familiar to you since that is the job of:

The Red Horse

And, the news that I was so reluctant to hear?

Saudi Arabia has hit its maximum oil production level at 12 million barrels a day.

You might not think that this is such a big problem, but you’ll understand why it’s big – when we’re finished talking about it.

A Biblical Overview Of Daniel – Part 1

After having done A Biblical Overview Of Revelation, it’s time to turn to Daniel who adds a lot of detail to our understanding of what the Apostle John wrote. Of course, Daniel speaks of other things as well, and we will talk about those. Our goal will be to see the Book of Daniel clearly, without the unBiblical and foolish notions that ‘scholars’ inserted into our view of this book.

We have chosen man-centered logic over the gentle guidance of the Holy Spirit for far too long. We forgot that the Bible is the precious words of God, and that God is not amused by our corruption of what He said.

The Day Of The Lord – Short Version

Having finished the longer study of The Day Of The Lord, I thought that I’d leave a ‘short version’ for those with less time to look into this. But, you’re missing a lot if you skip the full version here:

The Day Of The Lord

Good Eschatology ALWAYS allows the Bible to speak for itself. We have forgotten that, and it’s time to bring that back into focus. Too many ‘scholars’ have replaced God and the Holy Spirit with corrupt human logic.

That needs to stop.

So, let’s summarize what we’ve found about the ‘Day of the Lord’.

The Great Unraveling And The Red Horse

When Putin invaded Ukraine, I knew that this was the beginning of the end of our civilization, if Russia wasn’t quickly defeated. That defeat didn’t happen, and now others have been emboldened to do the unthinkable.

Venezuela is the latest barbarian state to announce that it too will invade its neighbor and take what it has for herself. And if they are successful, the spiral into the abyss will accelerate.

Never in the history of humanity have so many people depended so much upon global peace and global trade for their survival. And, it’s beginning to unravel.

And, I believe that the Red Horse rides through it.

Dengue Fever In My Neighborhood And A Prayer Request

Hey Everyone, I live in the middle of the hottest hot spot for mosquito-borne diseases in Taiwan – Tainan. There’s always someone, somewhere in Tainan that is coming down with Dengue Fever, Malaria or Japanese Encephalitis. It’s a thing. And when one or more cases show up in your neighborhood, the Taiwanese government goes in and sprays everything in each house in the area to kill off any and all mosquitoes. So, guess what just happened in our neighborhood? Right. Dengue Fever. That means the government will be spraying everything in our house with a pyrethroid agent. And, if any of you who knows how… um …third world the Taiwanese government can be, you cannot trust that they will be … Read more

Good Eschatology, Part 2 – Resolving A Paradox

We ended last week’s discussion of Good Eschatology with a conundrum. A paradox. Isaiah 65:19-24 clearly fits with Zechariah 14 and Revelation 20.

The problem comes when we look at Isaiah 65:17 which appears to talk about what happens in Revelation 21, and not Revelation 20.

Does this throw out everything that we said about the Millennium?

No, of course not.

However, it does offer us a challenge. And, if we don’t stumble at this challenge – as some have – we will come away with more understanding than we did before. Remember that the Bible was specifically written so that those who rebel, will stumble and fall, while those who submit to God will obtain knowledge.
