    The decisions you make about the small matters of your life pay off great dividends in your future. The bad choices you make lead to megamiseries, but the correct and good and right and noble and pure choices you make lead to megablessings.

    INTRODUCTION Today we’re going to start the series through the book of Daniel “How to Turn Chaos Into Character.” The book of Daniel is a prophetic book. The first six chapters have to do with Daniel’s life, and some of the events are practical events to us. But chapters 6-12 are Bible more

    Daniel, the power of prayer, and the interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream.

    INTRODUCTION Last week, I preached on the first chapter of Daniel, talked about “The Daniel Diet.” And it was a message about moral purity, especially for our teenagers to make the right choice. While Daniel’s friends were required to eat the king’s rich food and drink the wine, Daniel said, more

    An explanation of the prophecies represented by the statue in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream.

    INTRODUCTION Daniel contains the ABC’s of Bible Prophecy. Revelation contains the XYZs. I want to use history and the Bible to show you how this is an amazing book you hold in your hands.

    You may not be facing a literal fire like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, but you may often find yourself facing inflammable experiences or relationships. Learn how to keep your cool when the heat is on.

    INTRODUCTION One of the most dramatic, exciting stories in all the Bible was when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown into the fiery furnace. I remember hearing the joke about the preacher who for the life of him couldn’t ever remember the names of those Hebrew boys. So one Sunday when more

    Nebuchadnezzar’s pride problem, a second dream, transformation into a beast and his repentance.

    INTRODUCTION You could also call this chapter: “From Beauty to Beast” or “The Birdman of Babylon.” Sadaam Hussein is the Dictator of Iraq. This week he posted a message on the Internet stating he has become a Christian. Part of it says: “I realized recently that for the past seven years I more

    How King Belshazzar’s arrogance led to the fall of Babylon to Darius the Mede.

    INTRODUCTION Dandy Don Meredith (from Mt. Vernon, Texas) used to be on Monday Night football with Howard Cosell. When a game was already decided, he would start to sing the old country song, “Turn out the Lights, the Party’s Over.” Well, 2,600 years ago, there was a party in Babylon, and God more

  • 7. The Lions In Daniel's Den

    based on 37 ratings

    Daniel gives us a great example of how we ought to live and behave. Just as he was a child of God living in a foreign, pagan culture, you and I are children of God living in a culture that is becoming less and less Christian with each passing day.

    INTRODUCTION The title of this series from Daniel is “Turning Chaos into Character.” In chapter one, Daniel refused to eat the king’s rich food. He went on what I call the “Daniel Diet.” In chapter two, the king saw a vision of a multi-metallic statue representing Gentile Kingdoms. Here in more

    based on 3 ratings

    Daniel’s vision of the future is amazing. But it is a solemn reminder Jesus is going to return and one day all of those who don’t know Him will be sentenced at the Great White Throne Judgement.

    INTRODUCTION English writer George Orwell is perhaps best known for his work 1984 (written in 1949), in which he introduced the idea that “Big Brother is watching.” It is almost scary to read it today because it seems strangely prophetic of the ability of big government to monitor your phone and more

  • 9. The Little Horn With The Big Mouth

    based on 41 ratings

    When we see things predicted in the Bible that have already come true, it gives us great assurance that those things yet to happen will also come true.

    INTRODUCTION Just as Daniel 7 gave us much more information about the fourth kingdom, the prophecy in chapter 8 gives us much more information about the second and third kingdoms. For Daniel, this was one of his most troubling visions, even after the angel Gabriel explained it to him. Notice more

    How we can learn some important principles about prayer by examining Daniel’s prayer of confession and repentance.

    INTRODUCTION If you have suffered a little brain strain from the past couple of weeks of diving deeply into the prophetic meanings of Lions, Bears, Rams and Goats (most of them with strange horns growing everywhere), we have a break today. We are going to focus on prayer. This is a prayer of more

  • 11. The 70 Sevens--God's Countdown

    Contributed on Oct 15, 2006
    based on 53 ratings

    This is the most amazing prophetic passage in all the Word of God, because God not only tells us WHAT will happen, but He gives us the PRECISE TIMING of these plans.

    INTRODUCTION The ninth chapter of Daniel centers clearly upon the person of Jesus Christ and is one of the few places in Scripture where God ties himself to a definite timetable of events. This passage is therefore one of the strongest evidences to prove the divine inspiration of the Bible. I am more

    Satan and his organized legions constantly work to obstruct God’s plan. As believers, our greatest weapon is prayer. We can expect our greatest opposition when we are on our knees. So we must be persistent–praying until the answer is received.

    INTRODUCTION Christian humorist, Dennis Swanburg, loves to tell the story of an unforgettable baptism that took place in a little West Texas church. They were building a new sanctuary and it was almost finished. The new baptistry was functional even though changing rooms were not yet available. more

    Daniel 11 is an amazing chapter. The first 35 verses were future for Daniel, but are history for us. The last 10 verses were future for Daniel and are still future for us! What this means for us and how can we apply it to our lives today.

    INTRODUCTION In 1968, a new comedy television show made its debut. It was “Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In.” In 1993, they presented a 25-year anniversary of the show, showing clips from some of the early episodes. One of the regular features was called “News from the Future,” in which two more
