Series Cover Art - The Book of Daniel - Series text: The Book of Daniel: Visions. Diligence. Excellence. Character. Even in Moments of Crisis.

Introduction

I will be doing a series from the Book of Daniel. I believe it will be very useful to us at this time of a global health crisis.

Daniel & his friends/colleagues were caught up in a crisis of sorts back in their own day: the loss of their freedom & had to live & flourish under a different atmosphere.

Key Points from Chapter 11

  • Proceedings continue from Daniel chapter 10. The angel told Daniel that truth will be shown to Daniel. i.e., the meaning of the vision would be explained extensively.
  • There were various maneuverings involving aggressive kings jostling for power and kingdoms.
  • At these times., in much travail, the angel said in Verse 32: “…but the people that know their God shall be strong and do exploits.”
  • In these perilous times, a leader would emerge who would do according to his will, exalt himself, magnify himself above every god, speak “marvelous” things against God and prosper till the indignation be accomplished. [ASV].
  • This same one shall not regard the god of his fathers, nor the desire for women. [Some commentaries have interpreted this to mean his sexual orientation].
  • Inthe end, he shall amount to nothing, and none shall help him.
  • Be sure to read the whole of chapter 11 in the Bible, to fully understand what transpired and to gain your own perspective.
  • The interpretation the angel gave Daniel continued to chapter 12. We will cover that next.

Concluding Thoughts

  • The angel mentioned “the children of the violent” [ASV] in verse 14. There are those in life given to violence. In this story, they ended up falling.
  • It is so amazing how the angel described the travails in the future, a bigger crisis than what Daniel was experiencing at the time, yet he stated as a matter of fact that those who know their God shall be strong and shall do exploits. This applies to us now, in this time of our own crisis.

Note

  • ASV: American Standard Version.
