Daniel Chapter 2: Smiting of the Image

Nov 27th, 2009 | By | Category: Daniel, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

We had suggested that the king probably had some knowledge of his dream but that his recollection was blurred or distorted. However, he remembered enough to know immediately if someone telling him the dream was speaking truth or a fabrication. The image in the dream, or vision, was awesome (“terrible”) in both form and size. In addition, a brilliant light was associated with the image. The pure metals—without alloys, corrosive elements, or oxidation—had a natural sheen that was startling in their brightness. Imagine seeing a shining golden head, silver arms and a chest reflecting light, and a brass belly and thighs with a sheen. Even the iron in the legs and feet may have had a brightness. In fact, everything would have shone except the clay—but in differing degrees of glory.

Daniel Chapter 1:Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego taken Captive to Babylon

Nov 27th, 2009 | By | Category: Daniel, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

Chapter 1 was written by Daniel in Hebrew. In Chapter 2 and for several chapters, he changed the original writing to Chaldaic, for the Jewish captives, who were with him in Babylon, were schooled in that language. In fact, Daniel, the three Hebrews, and the other captives who were considered intellectuals and men of promise became very learned in the Chaldaic language, especially as they were exalted in office. Those taken captive the third time, when Zedekiah was dethroned, were in Babylon for 70 years. Therefore, Daniel and the three Hebrews were in Babylon for more than 70 years. Incidentally, the 70 years apply to the desolation of the land and the destruction of the Temple and city, and not to the length of the captivity.

Correlating the Prophecies of Daniel and Revelation 13

Sep 8th, 2009 | By | Category: MP3 Sermons (Click on Sermon name), Prophetic

The key to understanding who is spoken about in Revelation 13, one must first look to Daniel. This Bible study explores the episode with the Three Hebrews; Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and the image on the plain of Dura. The incredible faith they had in God not to betray Him through fear of death at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar. When once we understand the symbols of Daniel we can then transfer them to the New Testament, namely the book of Revelation which is a book of symbols. Who is the Beast? Who is the image of the Beast? This study was given 1989

Daniel Chapter 3 The Three Hebrew Children

Jun 22nd, 2009 | By | Category: Daniel, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

This golden image on the Plain of Dura corresponds to the image of the beast. Both are statues. Some call Daniel the Old Testament Book of Revelation, and others give Ezekiel that title. A lot of pictures and subpictures from both books are reflected in the Book of Revelation. Incidentally, the “gold” suggests divinity—false divinity in this case.
