This portion of Daniel, mentioning the prophecy of the 70 weeks, is one of the most hotly debated passages among Bible-believing scholars. What is Daniel talking about? Today’s sermon by Pastor Nate Harlan addresses one question that this passage raises: What will the Messiah do?
People commonly consider God in the Old Testament as angry and judgmental. But this passage of Daniel is one of many demonstrating that God is merciful and faithful toward His people. Daniel’s prayer shows how God is always kind and longsuffering and how we sinners are always deserving of judgment.
How do we interpret a vision that even Daniel found appalling? And if the events were fulfilled so long ago, how does it apply to us in 21st-century America? Pastor Nate Harlan walks through this passage and shows how it points us to the coming of Christ.
Four beasts rise out of the sea. The last has teeth of iron and ten horns. And one like a son of man is given dominion. What does Daniel’s strange vision mean? Pastor Nate Harlan shows how these prophesies have already been fulfilled, culminating with the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem in AD 70.
Just like Daniel, we are faced with wicked men who want to silence us for their own gain and for their own power. How are we to respond to these men when they seek to oppress us? We are to respond like Daniel and our Lord Jesus did — not with silence, but with boldness. Hear Pastor Nate Harlan’s stirring sermon on Daniel 6.
Quarreling, jealousy, anger, hostility, slander, gossip, conceit, and disorder. This list of sins in 2 Cor. 12:20 is a cocktail of destruction. But in the center of this list is slander, a sin all too easy to fall into. Hear Pastor John Mergy’s teaching on how we can avoid this sin.
Christians, when we read the story of the writing on the wall, we need to recognize that we are like Belshazzar. We know better, but we put our trust in things other than God. We must repent or we too will be weighed and found wanting. Hear the sermon by Pastor Nate Harlan.
In the story of Nebuchadnezzar’s humiliation and repentence, we learn that we all need to be humbled because we also are full of pride and full of ourselves. But God is gracious: When He humbles us, He is saving us. Hear the sermon by Pastor Nate Harlan.
It’s a simple question: Do you love God like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego do? They loved God more than their own lives, even within sight of the king and his fiery instrument of execution. How can we follow their exemplary example?
Idolatry is man exalting himself in God’s place. Here in the book of Daniel, King Nebuchadnezzar is a case study of human depravity, refusing to accept the rule of God. Pastor Nate Harlan points us to Scripture to show us the remedy to our own idolatry.
