Steve's Daniel Class Recordings




The first half of the book of Daniel provides an inspiring character study. Daniel was chosen by God for purposes that serve faithful saints even today. Daniel endured profound trials, and his humility and service were greatly tested in a foreign and pagan land.

The second half of Daniel lays much of the foundation of Biblical prophecy, and it presents the themes of the antichrist, the Tribulation, the end of the world, and the Millenial Kingdom. Some less-evident prophetic themes may also be present in the book of Daniel, including a return of the Nephilim.

The often-overlooked and frequently-underappreciated book of Daniel emerges in every respect as an essential part of Biblical study. My goal with each lesson in this in-depth series is to forthrightly present what I believe the Scriptures are trying to tell us.

Lesson 121 Daniel 9:12-15 01/13/19 Daniel's prayer is an fervent and passionate confession concerning the sins of the Jewish nation, and he sees their pattern of sin from ancient history to his time. We can learn much about what it means to truly "confess our sins" from his example. Few of us confess to each other as we ought to (James 5:16), and this impacts our effectiveness in the church and in our walk of faith.

Lesson 120 Daniel 9:9-11 01/06/19 Daniel's prayer shifts from a focus on the Jewish nation and their sins to an emphasis on God and His attributes. In these verses, it is underscored that God is merciful and forgiving, that He requires obedience to righteous standards which He clearly communicates to us. Finally, God is unchanging in those standards and His judgments are always just.

Lesson 119 Daniel 9:6-8 12/09/18 In Daniel's fervent prayer, he notes the Jewish nation as a conquered and widely-scattered people. The situation reveals the justice of God and this point is not missed by Daniel. He assigns 'righteousness' to God and 'shame' to all of the Jewish people. This historical scattering of the Jews by God may prove to play into end-times prophecies in which the gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the world.

Lesson 118 Daniel 9:4-6 12/02/18 As Daniel begins to pray, he model four key elements of effective prayer which can be summarized as his Start, Style, Source, and Stance. It is clear these elements have been part of his disciplined prayer life since he was young, and they are also affirmed in how Jesus taught His disciples to pray.

Unquestionably, the Bible remains the final say in all matters of our present and future lives. It's therefore easy to subscribe to the safe and predictable ideas concerning God's Word. But sometimes the most accurate positions are the ones that emerge when we choose to step out from behind the rigid constraints of stained glass views. That means we may need to wrestle with uncomfortable themes. When I write an article, I use that exercise to process issues that God has laid on my heart. I may spend many weeks on it as I carefully consider its content. I trust these articles will inspire you, provoke you, and compel you to study the Bible with a fresh perspective.
Title Creation Date Background
LYING LIPS AND THE APOCALYPSE 10/09/18 We all know that "2 + 2 = 4," but in today's politically-correct environment, it's unpopular to state the truth. This article calls it like it is: the liberals have descended in their behaviors and antics so far that it's clear they are modeling what the antichrist's supporters will be like. This article examines the present state of our nation's culture and political climate, and it places those observations against the facts and texts of end-time Scripture. The picture that emerges "tells it like it is."

DOES GOD LET YOU DOWN 09/03/18 The question is not meant to be irreverent, especially as the Scriptures show other people had their doubts and their unfulfilled expectations of Jesus Christ. The truth is we are called to live "by faith," and that is a posture that overcomes the way things seem to be. Many people struggle with feelings of discouragement in their Christian walk, and cliche answers aren't the solution to these sorts of needs. This article is a probing - and uncomfortable - look at circumstances we all deal with from time to time.

Who is Daniel Chapter 8 Talking About Part 2 08/13/18 A series of matter-of-fact issues are outlined within the text of Daniel's second vision in Dan. 8:9-14, and within Gabriel's explanation of that vision in verses 23-25 of that chapter. These plainly-stated points make any efforts to claim that Antiochus Epiphanes is the subject of this text a very tough sell. This article is the second of two that argue my personal view that this portion of Daniel is instead referring to the antichrist.
