Today you should read: Daniel 11

Daniel 11 is a specific prophecy on future conflicts among nations until Jesus comes back. This chapter is so accurate in the rise and fall of certain empires in history that many disbelieved when Daniel wrote it but as we all know, Isaiah 44:6-7 tells us that God prophecies what is ahead of time to show His power and sovereignty. Of course Judah and Israel needed to be reminded of God’s power and sovereignty for they were still in Exile and would later be persecuted by the Persians and Greeks. However God makes good on His promises and we are assured of that in the following chapter as we see Jesus will comes back and Jesus wins. Let us be reminded of this great truth as well. Maybe you’re going through something where you are questioning God’s power and sovereignty. Maybe you need to be assured that God is in control over all of history including the future like He reveals in todays jumpstart chapter. Our God is a God of history because it is ultimately HISstory. His story of love and grace to a people who backstab him and are persecuted for Him but ultimately His love and redemption wins out, even if it’s not so evident in our world right now.

  1. So, Erik, are you saying the events of Chapter 11 have already occurred or are occuring now or both? I find biblical prophesy really stretches me, I pray for wisdom and understanding!

    I am encouraged to know that the people of God resist and even tho there is persecution, martyrdom, and stumbling, God continues to refine, purify and make us spotless for the coming end! (Vs 32-35). It’s all about Him and His glory!,

    1. Both. 3/4 of it has already happened with certain countries rising up and falling. The last (ch. 12) is the antichrist (little horn) in which Jesus finally defeats.
