Sunday Scripture Blessings Link Up 5 20 18

In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim King of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it. He then ordered Ashpenaz, chief of his court officials to bring to the king's service some of the Israelites from the royal family and the nobility - young men without any physical defect, handsome, showing some aptitude for every kind of learning, well informed, quick to understand, and qualified to serve in the king's palace.  Among those were DANIEL who was given the name BELTESHAZZAR
HANANIAH who was given the name SHADRACH
MISHAEL who was given the name  MESHACH
AZARIAH who was given the name ABEDNEGO

To these young men GOD gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And DANIEL could understand visions and dreams of all kinds. This is how Daniel became the one King Nebuchadnezzar had interpret his dreams.

No one could interpret King Nebuchadnezzar's dreams but Daniel prayed to GOD for the interpretation so the king wouldn't kill all the wise men of Babylon who couldn't interpret. GOD gave Daniel the interpretation.

Daniel 2:44 In the time of those kings, the GOD of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. 45: This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands - a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces. "The great GOD has shown the king what will take place in the future. The dream is true and its interpretation is trustworthy." 46: Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell prostrate before Daniel and paid him honor and ordered that an offering and incense be presented to him. 47: The king said to Daniel, "Surely your GOD is the GOD of gods and the Lord of Kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery. 4: Then the king placed Daniel in a high position and lavished many gifts on him. He made him ruler over the entire province of Babylon and placed him in charge of all its wise men. 49: Moreover, at Daniel's request the king appointed Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego administrators over the province of Babylon, while Daniel remained at the royal court.

Because of this the other administrators were jealous because King Darius was going to set Daniel over the whole kingdom, they talked the King into making a decree that no one should pray to any god or human being during the next thirty days except to the King, and if they do they shall be thrown into the lion's den. That is how Daniel was thrown in because he refused to not pray to GOD and prayed. But GOD sent an angel who closed the mouths of the lions so no harm came to Daniel. After Daniel was saved, King Darius had the false accusers thrown in the lions' den and they were killed.

6:25 Then King Darius wrote to all the nations and peoples of every language in all the earth:

"May you prosper greatly!

6:26 I issue a decree that in every part of my kingdom people must fear and reverence the GOD of Daniel. "For he is the living GOD and he endures forever; his kingdom will not be destroyed, his dominion will never end. 27: He rescues and he saves; he performs signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth. He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions."28: So Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius and the reign of Cyrus, the Persian.

  1. Don't you just love the moments of soaring praise in Daniel?! He had so many reasons to be disappointed and discouraged, and yet his heart belonged fully to God!

  2. I had actually forgotten about the name changes, and yes no one destroys His Kingdom.

  3. On Mother's Day our Pastor's wife and daughters preached an amazing sermon based on these verses! Seeing it here today only confirms what my precious LORD and Savior told me last week! Thank you for sharing!
