Ancient of Days

I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days(God) did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. Daniel 7:9

The term “Ancient of Days” was used by Daniel to describe God. Why because God is everlasting. The vison he sees is clearly God sitting on the throne as described in Revelations 1:14-15

However I suggest you clearly read Daniel 7:9 and Revelations 1:14 and notice there descriptions are identical further proving the Trinity between God the Father and Son Jesus Christ

A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. Daniel 7:10

Another seen that is clearly describe in Revelations 5:11, as thousands of Angels surround God on his throne. And the book being opened clearly is the Book of Life (Revelations 20:15)

Daniels vision is clearly of judgement day when we will all stand before our Lord Jesus and account for our lives.

I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast (Satan) was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. Daniel 7:11

The beast is Satan, and this event is when Jesus destroys Satan and cast him into Hell. This event is also described in Revelations 19:20

As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time. Daniel 7:12

The Kingdom of Satan will be destroyed and all power that Satan and his followers have right now will be gone.

I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man(Jesus) came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days (God), and they brought him near before him. Daniel 7:13

The same even as clearly described in Matthew 24:30, as Jesus is The Son of Man, he is the Messiah and giving all authority by God his Father.

And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. Daniel 7:14

Jesus is King of King and Lord of Lords (Revelations 19:16) he will rule all nations, governments will rest on his shoulders (Isaiah 9:6) He will rule with a rod of iron (Revelations 2:27) and Gods kingdom will rule forever(Hebrews 1:8) in Jesus Name Amen

Lions Den

Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God. Daniel 6:5

Daniel was a faithful follower of God, and the Pagan society knew this so they wanted to get rid of him for it.

So they made a law to ban praying to God for thirty days, they knew Daniel wouldn’t follow this law because he was faithful to God and not man.

Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God. Daniel 6:11

Daniel prayed to God three times a day his entire life, his enemy knew when he prayed and watched him so they could convict him our there pagan laws.

Just like today it was Politically Incorrect to pray to God, but Daniel didn’t worry about offending man and trusted God to deliver him

Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.Daniel 6:16

The King knew that Daniel would be delivered from the Lion’s Den, because they remember when God delivered the 3 wise men from the Fiery Furnace.

How much faith do you have in God? Would you continue to be obedient to God even if it meant your life? Or do you bow down to our Pagan Society out of fear and persecution?

My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt. Daniel 6:22

After a day the King checked out Daniel and found him unharmed. Daniel declared he was delivered by God because he is righteous before God and The King

When God delivers you do you declare his Glory before others? Would you be found innocent before God?

I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end. He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions. Daniel 6:26-27

The Pagan King was so impressed with the power and glory of God made a law that his Pagen Kingdom would fear and honor God. Because he knew that our God is the one true living God and ruler of the Heavens and The Earth.

Our Faith is being challenged today, just like in Daniels time, its politically incorrect to pray and talk about God. Just like Daniel, trust in the Lord, stay faithful and he will deliver you. And then your enemies will to declare God is the one true living God and his kingdom will not be destroyed in Jesus Name Amen

Fiery Furnace

 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. Daniel 3:-6

King Nebuchadnezzar created a golden statue and he demanded everyone to bow down and worship this statue daily. Anyone who refused to worship would be burned alive in a Fiery Furnace.

There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Daniel 3:12

The three Jewish wise men(Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego) refused to bow down to the statue because they worshipped the only true God our Heavenly Father. Who has commanded us to not worship any other God or false idols.

But if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands? Daniel 3:15

The King challenged God then and said if he is truly God then he will deliver you from the Fiery Furnace. Not only were these men bound with rope, King Nebuchadnezzar ordered the furnace made seven times hotter than usual, so hot it burned his own men alive who delivered the Jewish wise men to the Fiery Furnace

If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. Daniel 3:17

But Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego trusted in God, they will knew God would deliver them from the Fiery Furnace. How many of us have strong enough faith willing to put our lives in Gods hands?

He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. Daniel 3:25

This event is pretty amazing on many different levels, not only because the 3 wise men were not hurt at all, its says not even one strand of hair on there heads was burnt. But we see the appearance of the Son of God, who we know is only Jesus Christ.

This is not the only appearance of Jesus in the Old Testament, just shows you Jesus is the same today, yesterday, and forever.

Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God. Daniel 3:28

The Pagan King, confirmed with his own eyes that our Heavenly Father is the only true God and Jesus delivered them from the Fiery Furnace. How strong is your faith today? God is with you even in the Fiery Furnace in Jesus name Amen
