Pamphlet 5010 KC Daniel 1-2 xxxxx

How exciting it is to be living in these last days!

Let's lay a little ground work for this book titled "God is Judge", DAN-I-EL.

Jesus Christ came at His first advent to ride upon a lowly ass,
to pay the price for our sins,
and to bring salvation to whosoever will turn to Him in repentance and believe in Him.

However, when He returns at the second advent following the reign of antichrist,
the king of Babylon of these last days of whom Nebuchadezzar was a type,
He will be riding on a white horse with the armies which were in heaven following Him also riding upon white horses,
clothed in fine linen, white and clean (which is the righteousness of the saints).

He will be coming to smite the nations
and to establish the ruling kingdom of God upon this earth and to rule with a rod of iron (discipline to His Word)
and to tread the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Editors Note: As we will point out during this study of Daniel
many prophesied signs leading up to His return have already occurred!
You had better join us in watching for the end.
It is nearer then you think!

In other words, He is coming as King of kings and Lords of lords and as it is written...
every knee shall bow to His name, which is His authority (Rom. 14:11, Philip. 2:10).
Rev. 19:14-16
And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

[15] And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

[16] And he hath on His vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

When we get to the 7th chapter of Daniel we shall also read about His kingdom coming
and being established upon the earth. What exactly is a kingdom anyway?

It is a king and His domain, i.e. that which He has dominion over.

Jesus Christ is coming with His saints to establish dominion over all the earth!

Daniel 7:13-14
I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

[14] 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.

The point of this in our preface is to establish the fact that Jesus Christ is returning to the Valley of Jeshoshaphat (Yahveh Judges)
and shall gather and judge all the nations round about.

We read about this in the Book of JO-EL (Yah is God)!

Joel 3:11-14
Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD.
The mighty one are the saints of the most high.
[12]Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
God is judge and the nations had better awaken and decide whose side they are on,
the right or the left, and get their acts together now or they will be separated
and hard-pressed under His wine, His Word, for a thousand years.
[13] Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.

[14] Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

The "Day of the Lord" is the Millennium and at that time,
at the time of His return at the sound of the 7th Trump,
as it is written in Matthew 25:32, "He shall gather all the nations before Him
and separate the sheep from the goats."

And you "see", His saints shall rule and judge with Him for those 1000 years.

This too we shall cover later in our study of Daniel.

Daniel 7:22
Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
And so it is that this book of Daniel concerns those saints who take possession of the kingdom
and who live and reign with Christ for those thousand years (Rev. 20:4).

To that end, we will find in the opening verses that not only were Daniel and his companions,
Shadrach, Meschach, and Abednedo, of the royal seedline of Judah,
which is the kingship line, but they all held government positions,
further documenting to those with eyes to see and ears to hear concerning their destinies.

We will also find that they are all brought before and/or delivered up to the king of Babylon,
but they do not bow a knee to his image... even in the face of almost certain death,
which brings us to the next point of preface.

The events that transpire in the Book of Daniel take place during the reign and captivity of the king of Babylon
(there were three sieges).

You "see", we do not find in Daniel the chapter by chapter, line by line teaching
that we find in the great Book of EZEK-I-EL, whose name means "God is my strength".

Ezekiel is the handbook of the watchmen,
the shepherding to the House of Israel after the manner of "Thus saith the Lord"
and "It is written".

For after the sound of the 6th Trump,
the warning that the false messiah comes first will no longer go forth.


Because he will already be here!

Therefore the delivering up and the warning
and the witness to the nations of the world that the true King of kings is coming
(announcing the 7th Trump)
shall be accomplished exactly as Christ said it would in Mat. 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21.

It will be at that time that the Holy Spirit will speak through His elect
who give His witness and His testimony.

In fact, those who are delivered up are instructed not to even premeditate
nor give anxious thought as to what they will say!

Mark 13:9-10
But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.

[10] And the gospel must first be published among all nations.

The word "published" means to proclaim as in "to herald"!

Matthew specifically refers to that which must be heralded as the gospel of the kingdom,
which is the good news (but not to many nations)
that the King and His dominion is coming and that the walls of this unholy,
ungodly One World System is going to come tumbling down.

Matthew 24:14 "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world
for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come."

Some of God's elect will be privileged to be delivered up
and give that testimony unto all nations.

How exciting it is to be living in these last days!

Also, those of you who are familiar with your Father's Word
know that there are only two churches out of the seven in Rev. 2 & 3 that Jesus Christ finds no fault with.

They are the two churches of Philadelphia and Smyrna
who both have the same doctrine and teach concerning the kenites (Rev. 2:9 & 3:9)
but their works are somewhat different.

Do not misunderstand, for there is there is only one body,
but there are different works and destinies,
i.e. jobs to do, by the different members of that body.

We will discuss this further later on in our study.

Finally, our preface to the Book of Daniel
would not be complete without emphasizing that Jesus Christ Himself referred to the words of the prophet Daniel
as the book for the reader to understand concerning the abomination of desolation,
who is antichrist, the king of Babylon of the last days,
i.e. Satan posing as Jesuswho comes at the sound of the 6th Trump
and stands in the holy place bringing in his storm of deception and flood of lies upon the earth.

Matthew 24:15
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
With that as sufficient background let us begin this apocalypse of the Old Testament
noting that the first part of the book (vs 1.1 - 6.28) is historic,
the major portion of which (vs 2.4 - 7.28) is written in Aramaic or Chaldean,
and the latter half (vs 7.1 - 12.13) is prophetic, the majority (vs 8.1 - 12.13) of which is written in pure Hebrew.

In other words, the historic part is written in the language of the Gentiles
because it deals with "the times of the Gentiles" and their supremacy in relation to Israel.

The prophetic part deals with "the time of the end"
and the events leading up to the restoration of the Kingdom of Israel.

Live Link to- The Book of Daniel Table of Contents
It is important that YOU Read it all!

Jesus said, "the book of Daniel was where one could go read and gain understanding"

Jesus Christ told us in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 when He sat upon the Mount of Olives and gave His disciples the seven seals concerning the knowledge and the events that would transpire during the final generation of the fig tree, that the book of Daniel was where one could go read and gain understanding concerning the abomination of desolation, that abominable desolator (antichrist) who would come stand in the holy place claiming to be God
The book of Daniel is the Apocalypse of the Old Testament
and a sister book to the Apocalypse of the New Testament,
the book of Revelation.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
