  matter the cost.

    into the fiery furnace because of their
    refusal to worship the Image erected by
    King Nebuchadnezzar.
      Key Verse – 17-18 – “Our God is able to deliver
       us, but even if he doesn’t…”

KEY VERSE #2 – v.25 –
”Look, I see four men walking
around in the fire, unbound and
unharmed, and the fourth looks
like a Son of the Gods!”
              CHAPTER FOUR

• Nebuchadnezzar goes “mad” and eats grass
  like a cow (Boanthropy) because he refuses
  to acknowledge the God of Heaven.
• KEY VERSE –7- “ so that the living may
  know that the Most High God is
  Sovereign…”
         CHAPTER FIVE
The Handwriting on the Wall – Belshazzar is
Co-regent with his Father (Nabidonius) over
the Babylonian Empire. He is throwing a
giant, irreverent party – and the Hand of God
appears - writing on the wall – a code – that
only Daniel can interpret. “Mene, Mene,
Tekel, Parsin….”
Key Verse – 23 – “But you did not honor the
God who holds in His hand your life…”
          CHAPTER SIX
        Daniel in the Lion’s Den
  (Under King Darius the Persian King)

as he had done before…”
              Chapter Seven
        The Beginning of “BOOK TWO”
          Daniel’s Dream - The Vision of the 4 Beasts
Key Verse – 9-14 –”…thrones were set in
  place…The Ancient of Days took his seat…and
  there before me was one like the Son of Man…He
  approached the Throne…and was led into His
  presence…His dominion is an everlasting
  dominion…”
              CHAPTER EIGHT
              Daniel’s vision of a RAM and a GOAT…
A focused look at the future reign of the Persian and Greek empires.
A prophecy of Antiochus IV – The Old Testament Anti-Christ and a
   foreshadowing of the final Anti-Christ who is to come.
KEY VERSE – 25 – “When they feel secure, he will destroy many and
   take his stand against the Prince of Princes. Yet he will be
   destroyed, but not by human power.”
                   Chapter Nine
                   THE 70 WEEKS of DANIEL –
 The first 69 weeks = From Daniel’s Day until the coming of the Christ
   -483 years or 173, 880 days until the coming of the Christ and the
   presentation of Himself as Messiah. This happened TO THE DAY
   – when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday!
 The last 7 weeks = the LAST 7 YEARS OF HUMAN HISTORY –
   The Great Tribulation!
 There is a distinct prophecy concerning the Anti-Christ and his
   attempt to destroy the people of God – and, his ultimate failure to
   do so!

Key Verse – 25
“Know and understand
this…From the issuing of a
decree..until the ANNOINTED
ONE COMES… “
                          CHAPTER TEN
            Daniel’s vision of a man…(An Angel Messenger)
  Gives Daniel an understanding of the Spiritual Warfare that is
     involved in the carrying out of Human history and in the
     fulfillment of the Prophecies of the Most High God. Satan is
     always working to thwart the plans of God…Yet God always
     prevails. The amazing thing is that God allows US to play a part
     through prayer, commitment and obedience in the fulfilling of His
     Word!

Key Verse – 12 –
“Do not be afraid
Daniel, Since the first
day that you set your
mind..and to humble
yourself before
God…your words
were heard…”
                      Chapter Eleven
 (A continuation of the dream and explanation that started in Chapter Ten)
Verses 1-32:
An UNBELIEVABLY detailed look at the time of the Greek Empire -naming
   events, relationships and wars that would not happen for hundreds of
   years into Daniel’s future. Yet history records…they all happened just as
   the Word of God had prophesied!
Verses 33-45:
A marked shift takes place – Now the text is an unmistakable description of
   the final Anti-Christ who is to appear in the end times.

Key Verse – 33 – “Those who are wise will instruct many…”
                          Chapter 12
        This chapter speaks primarily of the End Times and the Great
   Tribulation. It is filled with Theological statements on such topics as:
The Tribulation
The Rapture
The Book of Life
The Resurrection of the Dead (Both the “first” and “second” )
The Final Judgment
Key Verses:
Verse 3- “Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of Heaven, and
   those who lead many to righteousness…”
Verse 10 –”none of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will
   understand.”
      CONCLUDING APPLICATIONS
        Daniel was “just a man.”
        What separated him was –

1.Resolution in his heart to “not defile
  himself.”

2.A consistency of his walk that God could
  honor and use.

3. A desire to live for God even in a Godless
  world – no matter the cost!
