Daniel Chapter 11, Part 1

Before I get into that chapter, I’d like to point out something. There are several schools of thought related to the entirety of the book of Daniel, including chapter eleven. As with everything else biblical, critics have come out of the woodwork to either downplay, attempt to negate, or even change the way they want us to look at this eleventh chapter of Daniel. In a broad brush stroke, some of the “concerns” these so-called higher critics have is applied to the entire book of Daniel, not just specific chapters, like chapter eleven.

What’s Your Level of Commitment?

Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and Daniel had spent decades living for God. By the time they got to Babylon, it was firmly embedded in their thinking and outlook. They could no more set aside their obedience to God than they would drink muddy, putrid water. There was no question about their direction. They were all in for God regardless of the cost.

Fake News False Prophets of Yesterday AND Today

The problem is often in what the false prophets say, which is normally against God’s revealed will for this age, the last days. Again, I recall when I was involved in the Charismatic Movement in the 1970’s, I constantly heard this phrase by one invited guest speaker after another: “God is getting ready to do something new!” This was then parroted by the average person in attendance, often with a spirit of anticipation.

The Real Coming Great Awakening

In the end though, it is important to understand that there will be no permanent change to any good degree in society. It will not last. It cannot last. I firmly believe that for however many years I have remaining, anti-God forces will continue to push their aberrant ideology on society. They will continue to lie and vilify anything that even smacks of biblical values. They will continue to change definitions of words, twisting them to their meaning. They will repeatedly foist their strained sexuality and gender fluidity on society. They will not relent regardless of how much good President Trump is able to achieve. We need to be aware of this.

Predators in Pulpits?

Throughout the book of Romans, Paul traces humanity’s problem and outlines God’s solution in no uncertain terms. The entire book of Romans is truly a masterpiece of doctrine and authority and Paul painstakingly draws conclusions that are inescapable. Yet today, we have pastors/leaders who draw other conclusions. They don’t wish to offend. They refuse to talk about sin the way Paul talks about sin. They won’t lower themselves because it will make people in the congregation feel bad about themselves. What good is that? Certainly, if left there, no good at all. Why is there such disdain today for the way Paul has explained things? Because people don’t want to hear it.

Zechariah’s Message and Warning Also Applies to Christians

Zechariah insisted that the Israelites follow God with a pure heart, an undivided heart. This would require quickly admitting when they failed. We need to do the same thing. We need to acknowledge our failures before God, not to dwell on them. Not to beat ourselves over the head with them. We must admit and confess them so that we can regain fellowship with God once again. Christians who do not do this may think they are in fellowship with God, but they are not. They are in fellowship with themselves only. This can happen to any Christian! It’s happened to me and it’s likely happened to you.

God in My Everything?

The more we begin to rely on our emotions and how we feel about something, the less likely we are going to look to God’s Word as the final and absolute authority for life and practice as Christians. This appears to be what Ken Shigematsu (and too many others to count), is doing. His books attempt to draw people away from the truth of the cross and Scripture into the arena of “feelz” using monastic rituals to get us there. He wants us to embrace the type of rituals that many ancient orders used for the express purpose of getting closer to God. Yet, these things are not in Scripture so we should be very concerned.
