Matt 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not

able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is

able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

2Tim 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of

power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable

and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and

idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake

which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the

second death.

2. Undeniable Failure vs 2

vs 3 the king tells them he can't remember the dream

then all these wise men tell the king, we can't do it

vs 4, 7, 10. there is no man that can

is none other that can shew it before the king,

except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.

Out of their own mouths. They condemn themselves

Dan 2:27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said,

3. Unwavering Faith vs 16

notice what he says and the way he says it.

What would his punishment had been if he not only failed

but lied to the king?

The king has already accused them of trying to buy some time

so they can come up with a way to weasel their way out of

their failure to do as the king has requested

real faith always wins

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he

that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he

is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Prov 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto

thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge

him, and he shall direct thy paths.

James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that

giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall

be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.

For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with

the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he

shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A double minded man

is unstable in all his ways

A famous art collector is walking through the city when he

notices a mangy cat lapping milk from a saucer in the

doorway of a store. He does a double take.

He knows that the saucer is extremely old and very valuable,

so he walks casually into the store and offers to buy

the cat for two dollars.

The storeowner replies, "I’m sorry, but the cat isn’t for sale."

The collector says, "Please, I need a hungry cat around

the house to catch mice. I’ll pay you 20 dollars for that


And the owner says "Sold," and hands over the cat.

The collector continues, "Hey, for the twenty bucks I wonder if

you could throw in that old saucer. The cat’s used to it

and it’ll save me from having to get a dish."

The owner says, "Sorry buddy, but I've got a lot of faith in that

old saucer. There used to be a couple hundred stray cats

around here, and I always try to feed one of them out of

that bowl , So far this week I’ve sold sixty-eight cats."
