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?

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.
