Prophecies of Daniel 1, Part 6

In Daniel 1:8-14, we see Daniel’s desire to remain faithful to God. In Daniel 1:15-16, we see Daniel actually remaining faithful to God. His desire to remain faithful to God carried him through so that in reality, Daniel was faithful. It all starts with our desire. If we want to be or remain faithful to God, that is more than half the battle and wanting to be/remain faithful will help us get there.

Prophecies of Daniel 1, Part 5

This lesson should not go unnoticed by us. Above all things, we should seek to obey God because our obedience from the heart pleases Him greatly. This does not mean that He will give us the ability to understand dreams and visions, but He will bless us with greater discernment and a more solid desire to continue living in a way that pleases Him because our lives will bring Him glory, voluntarily.

In too many ways today, Christians wind up compromising their testimony with the world. We give a little here and give a little there. Before we know it, there is virtually no difference outwardly between the lives of many Christians and many unsaved people. Shouldn’t our lives stand out?

Prophecies of Daniel 1, Part 4

Let’s also note here that it becomes clear that God gave Daniel this particular ability because God had plans to use Daniel to bring hidden knowledge to us in what would become the twelve chapters of the book of Daniel. Without the ability to receive and discern visions and dreams, we would not have the book of Daniel. We need to comprehend that God gives this type of gift when He sees fit and for His purposes, not for ours.

Discernment is so lacking today among Christians. Too many tend to flit from this latest theological fad (usually connected with Eschatology or prophecy), to that fad, or to that one over there. Instead of studying the Bible for themselves, too many Christians read books about the Bible, attend conferences where other Christians excitedly talk about books they’ve written about the Bible, but those same Christians do not simply study the Bible for themselves.

Prophecies of Daniel 1, Part 3

Daniel believed that it was very important to obey God in all things. In this first chapter of the book of Daniel, we see how quickly Daniel and his friends were faced with a challenge to their faith. They overcame because they believed God. Because they believed God, He found a way to help them over the hump so that they could actually obey and live in a way that pleased Him. This was in spite of the fact that they had been captured and carried off to a foreign land, to be dominated by a foreign king and made to adapt to a foreign culture.

Prophecies of Daniel 1, Part 2

What Daniel may not have realized was that by doing things God’s way, he was actually eating a very healthy diet that would allow his food to be digested more fully. This in turn meant that Daniel would be gaining as much protein and nutrition from the food he ate as possible. He would eat less and be more full. Conversely, those who ate the king’s food would not experience those benefit because that food was probably overcooked, heavy in fats and salts.

Prophecies of Daniel 1, Part 1

It is fascinating though how one of the big aims of Satan has always seemed to be to get the Jews out of Israel and Judaism out of the Jewish people. It doesn’t seem to matter who the dictator or king is at the time either. The goal always seems to be the same. Make the Jewish people forget about their God and Judaism itself.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 19

As we learn in Daniel 9:27, peace is brokered by the Antichrist (the first Seal of Revelation 6) and the world celebrates! True peace for at least seven years! However, by the middle of the “week” or final seventh year, Antichrist shows his true face by replicating what Antiochus Epiphanes IV did in 168 BC. At that point, Antichrist will take his seat in the rebuilt Jewish Temple and desecrate it, recreating an “abomination of desolation” that Jesus spoke about in Matthew 24. This abomination of desolation will be real, it will be physical, and it will be visible. In fact, it is very likely that seconds after Antichrist goes into the Holy of Holies, that act of defiance will be televised throughout the world and across the Internet. At this point, the Jews who put their faith in him (for peace), will realize what they did and run to the hills, where God will protect that remnant for the final three and a half years of the Tribulation. This is all in the book of Revelation.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 18

Verse 41 tells us that this king – the Antichrist – will invade the “Beautiful Land,” which is another term for Israel (see also Daniel 8:9). Antichrist has ultimately wanted to control Israel and the Temple Mount specifically. Notice that the text tells us that “Many countries will fall…” just like countries fell during the time of Hitler. In fact, every time there has been a change of “ownership” from one empire to another, those lands “fell” from the previous ruler’s control into the hands of the new rulers. This coming series of conflicts toward the end of the Tribulation will be nothing new. It’s the way the “game of thrones” has always worked in history.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 17

Notice that even at the very end of “time,” which refers to man-led history, the king of the South and the king of the North will still exist. This time, their common enemy will be Antichrist though. The king of the South still refers to the area due south of Israel, which is Egypt (though it may have a different name by then, the geography remains the same) and the king of the North will still be housed in the area that today is still known as Syria. These two kings will decide it’s time for a mutiny. They don’t like what he’s doing and they certainly don’t like being under his command and answering to him.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 16

In this day and age, being gay is something that homosexuals wear as a code of honor quite visibly. They’re proud of it, though no one ever gets to have a parade where they evidence being proud of their “straightness.” Gay pride is something that Satan has created and built so that all things will come together when his spiritual “son,” the Antichrist takes up position of rule over the coming one-world system. I think it’s very plausible that the reason Antichrist will have no desire for women is due to the fact that he will be gay. As noted in our last installment, since women can often be a distraction to powerful men, Satan won’t want that to be in the way, which might create the opportunity for Antichrist to fail. Satan will need Antichrist to be as supernaturally focused as possible.
