November 24, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

In between the second letter of the Apostle Peter and the first letter of the Apostle John we read two chapters of Daniel.

November 24: Daniel 9, Daniel 10 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Daniel 9 is all about Daniel’s prayer and the “seventy sevens”. Many have tried to predict the return of Jesus Christ based on this prophesy. So far, all have failed. Even Jesus said he could not predict the day of his return, only that it is imminent. God only knows, and He ain’t telling. We live in “today” and “today” is  the day of salvation.

Daniel 10. Daniel saw a vision of a man. It is described in colorful images, much like the way Jesus Christ is pictured in the book of Revelation. He became completely exhausted, fell asleep and was having a dream. In this dream the angel Michael spoke to him and told Daniel about his own struggle and about future events.

Daniel 1, the early years, new names, “the Daniel diet”

The “Einstein test” (maybe not from Einstein himself) simply states that for a prophesy to be proven it has to be written down before the event happened, and that the prophet could in no way himself make the prophesy to be fulfilled.

And now to the book of Daniel.

They submitted to new names, but when it came to food they resisted.

You guessed it. This has led to a new fad: “The Daniel diet” consisting of only vegetables, or vegetables and grain, meatless diets or even vegan diets, but they all miss the point. The four young men decided to obey God and only eat kosher food rather than the pagan delicacies, and not drink wine, but trust God and drink their water. This act of obedience is what God honored.
