“GOD’S WORD IS SURE”

DANIEL 8:15-27

IN VERSES 1-14 DANIEL SAW A PROPHETIC VISION OF A HE GOAT DEFEATING A RAM AND AFTERWARDS SPROUTING FOUR HORNS IN THE PLACE OF ONE LARGE HORN. THEN ONE OF THESE SMALLER HORNS BECAME VISCIOUS AND DESTRUCTIVE TOWARDS THE SANCTUARY OF GOD AND THE PEOPLE OF GOD, UNTIL HE WAS DESTROYED BY GOD. THIS PART OF THE CHAPTER GIVES THE INTERPRETATION OF THE VISION WHILE SECULAR HISTORY IDENTIFIES THE INDIVIDUALS WHO FULFILLED THIS PROPHECY IN DETAIL HUNDREDS OF YEARS LATER. THIS PROVES THAT “THE SCRIPTURE CANNOT BE BROKEN” (JOHN 10:35), AND THAT ALL PROPHESIES CONTAINED IN THE WORD OF GOD MUST BE FULFILLED. GOD’S WORD IS SURE.

  • GOD’S WORD IS SURE. DANIEL SAW THIS PROPHETIC VISION ABOUT THE YEAR 559 BC. ONE FASCINATING THING ABOUT THIS PROPHETIC VISION IS THE ACCURACY WITH WHICH IT WAS FULFILLED. THE LARGER HORN OF THE RAM WHICH CAME UP LATER SIGNIFIED THAT THE PERSIAN ELEMENT OF THE MEDIO-PERSIAN EMPIRE WHICH CAME LATER WOULD BE MORE PROMINENT THAN THE MEDES. “THE ROUGH GOAT IS THE KING OF GRECIA, AND THE GREAT HORN BETWEEN HIS EYES IS THE FIRST KING.” THE CONQUEST BY THE GREEKS UNDER ALEXANDER THE GREAT TOOK PLACE MORE THAN 200 YEARS LATER IN 334 BC. THE SPEED OF THE HE GOAT MEANT THAT HE WOULD CONQUER THE MEDIO-PERSIAN EMPIRE IN JUST TWO YEARS. (VV15-21).
  • GOD’S WORD IS SURE. “FOUR KINGDOMS SHALL STAND UP OUT OF THE NATION.” THE EMPIRE WAS DIVIDED AMONG ALEXANDER’S FOUR GENERALS. “PTOLEMY WAS GIVEN EGYPT AND PARTS OF ASIA MINOR, CASSANDER WAS GIVEN THE TERRITORY OF MACEDONIA AND GREECE, LYSIMACHUS WAS GIVEN THRACE AND PARTS OF ASIA MINOR, AND SELEUCUS WAS GIVEN THE REMAINDER OF THE EMPIRE, INCLUDING SYRIA, ISREAL, AND MESOPOTAMIA.” “IN THE LATTER TIME OF THEIR KINGDOM….A KING OF FIERCE COUNTENANCE…..SHALL STAND UP.” THIS MEANS THAT MORE THAN 100 YEARS LATER (IN 175 BC) ANTIOCHUS IV EPIPHANES WOULD INHERIT THE SELEUCID DYNASTY (VV22-23).
  • GOD’S WORD IS SURE.“AND HIS POWER SHALL BE MIGHTY, BUT NOT IN HIS OWN POWER.” THE EVIL EXPLOITS OF THIS KING WERE ALL FULFILLED THROUGH ANTIOCHUS WHO WAS APPARENTLY BEING USED BY THE DEVIL. AS PROPHESIED, HE KILLED MANY JEWS AND DESCREATED THE TEMPLE BY OFFERING A SOW ON GOD’S ALTAR. HE ALSO PREVENTED THE JEWS FROM WORSHIPPING AND SLAUGHTERED MANY OF THEM. HE EVEN CHALLENGED GOD’S AUTHORITY. AS PROPHESIED, HIS DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR LASTED 2300 DAYS. THAT IS FROM HIS “FIRST INCURSION INTO JERUSALEM (170 BC), UNTIL THE REFURBISHING AND RESTORATION OF THE TEMPLE BY JUDAS MACCABEUS IN 164 BC.” “HE SHALL BE BROKEN WITHOUT HAND” (V25). “WITHOUT HAND” IS A JEWISH EXPRESSION WHICH MEANS BY AN ACT OF GOD. (VV24-25).

WE HAVE THE BENEFIT OF PROPHETIC FULFILMENTS TO ASSURE US THAT WE CAN AND SHOULD TRUST THE WORD OF GOD. ISAIAH SAID, “THE GRASS WITHERETH, THE FLOWER FADETH, BUT THE WORD OF OUR GOD SHALL STAND FOREVER (ISAIAH 40:8). IN GENESIS WE HAVE THE PROMISE THAT THE SEED OF THE WOMAN WOULD BRUISE THE SERPENT’S HEAD. THIS WAS FULFILLED 4000 YEARS LATER WHEN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS. IN THE NEW TESTAMENT WE HAVE PROPHESIES CONCERNING THE RETURN OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF HIS ETERNAL KINGDOM. THE FULFILLMENT OF BIBLE PROPHESIES IS TO GIVE US THE ASSURANCE THAT WE SHOULD BE “STEDFAST, UNMOVEBLE, ALWAYS ABOUNDING IN THE WORK OF THE LORD FORASMUCH AS (WE) KNOW THAT (OUR) LABOR IS NOT IN VAIN IN THE LORD” (I CORINTHIANS 15:58). THE LORD JESUS CHRIST CONCLUDED HIS SERMON ON THE MOUNT BY SAYING THAT, WHOSOVER HEARS THOSE SAYINGS OF HIS AND DOES THEM IS LIKE A WISE MAN WHO BUILDS HIS HOUSE UPON A ROCK, BUT WHOSEVER HEARS AND DOES NOT DO THEM IS A FOOLISH MAN WHO BUILDS ON THE SAND. WHERE ARE YOU BUILDING?

HERE IS A BRIEF OUTLINE OF THE GOSPEL

  • WHEN GOD CREATED THE WORLD EVERYTHING WAS GOOD OR VERY GOOD (GENESIS CHAPTERS 1&2).
  • BUT SINCE THAT TIME “ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD” (ROMANS 3:23).
  • “THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH, BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST” (ROMANS 6:23).
  • “GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD” (JOHN 3:16), “THAT WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR US” (ROMANS 5:8).
  • JESUS DIED AND PAID FOR THE SINS OF THE WHOLE WORLD (1 JOHN 2:2) INCLUDING YOUR SINS AND MY SINS.
  • “REPENT THEREFORE, AND BE CONVERTED THAT YOUR SINS MAY BE BLOTTED OUT” (ACTS 3:19).
  • “GOD HATH APPOINTED A DAY IN WHICH HE WILL JUDGE THE WORLD IN RIGHTEOUSNESS” (ACTS 17:31).
  • BUT WE DO NOT HAVE TO FACE GOD IN JUDGEMENT. IF WE CONFESS AND FORSAKE OUR SINS, WE SHALL HAVE MERCY AND SALVATION (PROVERBS 28:13; EPHESIANS 2:8-9).
  • “HE THAT BELIEVETH ON (TRUSTS IN) HIM (JESUS) IS NOT CONDEMNED. BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY” (JOHN 3:18).
