Wednesday Evening Bible Study
Come join us as Bob Young delves into the WORD of GOD given us in the book of
Daniel. Wednesday Evenings 6:30 P.M.
Exiled to Babylon in 605 B.C., Daniel was one of several young men chosen to serve in Nebuchadnezzar’s court. When Persia conquered Babylon in 539, Daniel was again given a position of power. He remained faithful to God in both of these hostile environments. From the interpretation of dreams, to the familiar stories of the fiery furnace, the lions’ den, and the handwriting on the wall, to the prophetic visions, the recurrent theme is God’s sovereignty over human affairs. In the historical sections (chs. 1–6) God supernaturally rescued Daniel and his friends. The rest of the book consists of visions of future judgment and deliverance by the Messiah. Some of Daniel’s prophetic themes are echoed in the New Testament, especially in Revelation.

While the Adult Bible Study is going through the Book of "The Revelation of Jesus Christ," Pastor Bob Young started dealing with the prophecies, that begin in chapter 7. As he continues through the rest of the book, we will find a calculated 490 year consisting of visions of future judgment and deliverance by the Messiah. however, there are 7 years not accounted for as he is told in in the last chapter of this book in verse 12:4 (ESV). “ But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end." Some of Daniel’s prophetic themes are echoed in the New Testament especially in Revelation where the missing 7 years begin with the opening of the First Seal in Revelation chapter 6.
