Trapped Between the North & the South

MESSAGE - Pastor Dale Thiele

Daniel: Hope Amid a Hostile World

Trapped Between the North & the South 

  • The Futility of Earthly Kingdoms
  • The Danger Until the Time of the End
  • The Power of Knowing God 

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Daniel 11:2-45. Why do you think such a historically focused prophecy is in the Bible? How did it serve the OT Israelites? How does it serve us today?
  2. With such precise predictions of activities of future rulers, how should we understand the relationship of human free will with God’s sovereignty in light of Daniel 11?
  3. How should we understand Daniel 11 in light of Daniel 10 (the reality of spiritual conflict)?
  4. Consider verse 32. This verse summarizes two alternative responses to the great persecution among the believers. In what ways does the evil one seek to seduce believers today?
  5. How does knowing God make a difference for believers in their stand against the evil one?  

Memory Verse of the Week:

Ephesians 6:13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. (ESV)
