THE BOOK OF DANIEL IN THE BIBLE

The book of Daniel in the Bible is jam-packed with action and power, miracles and visions. It’s a story of a real man who was exiled to Babylon and taken from his homeland of Judah when he was just 15 years old. He is faithful to God and trusts him, so when the new king trains him and his 3 friends (Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego) to learn to live as Babylonians, they won’t do any rituals that violate what their God asks of them.

Because of this, they grow stronger and wiser than anyone else. When the king has a strange dream, he calls Daniel in to interpret it and he does. After, the king rewards Daniel by making him third in command!

Later, Daniel’s three friends are thrown into a fiery furnace when they refuse to bow down to a false god, but the true God performs a miracle and they aren’t harmed! Because of this, the king demands that everyone worship their true God!

DANIEL AND THE LIONS’ DEN

Daniel lives his life as a prophet, helping kings with their dreams and prophesying about his own visions he is receiving from God. At one point, some administrators who are jealous of Daniel trick the king into passing a law that forbids others to pray to their God.

When Daniel breaks the law, the king is heartbroken, but has to throw him into the lions’ den. In the morning, the king runs to check on Daniel and sees that he isn’t harmed, and in turn, throws the palace administrators in instead. Spoiler alert: they don’t make it.

The book of Daniel in the Bible is a historical account and prophesy of what is to come for future empires–none of which will last, but will all eventually be replaced by the one true kingdom–the kingdom of God!

Printable Study for the Book of Ezekiel in the Bible

Study the book of Ezekiel in the Bible when you use this printable outline to discover historical events, timelines and themes.

DIGGING DEEP FOR UNDERSTANDING

Historically, there’s so much in the Old Testament to unpack…So if you’re confused, join the club.

I was content with reading the Bible and brushing off the history-type elements for YEARS of my life as if they didn’t really matter much. But guess what, if you want to grow spiritually, these facts matter!

There’s good news and bad news:

The good news is that I can help you. The bad news is that the Bible is so complex, you’ll have to be patient! It will take time to learn these things.

If you really want to dig deep, there is no crash course. Spiritual growth is a discipline, and with any discipline, it will require a lot of work on your part.

But if you’re ready to do a little thinking (which I think you are!), I know you will enjoy going on this life-long journey of learning how to dig for treasure in your Bible.

THE BOOK OF EZEKIEL IN THE BIBLE

Ok, so if you haven’t followed along since the beginning, you might want to go back and start at Genesis with me. Otherwise, here we go!

Ezekiel is a priest and prophet from the Israelite tribe of Levi. He was born in the southern kingdom of Judah around 620 BC during the time right after the Israelite kingdom has been exiled to Assyria.

Eventually the nation of Babylon overthrows Assyria and then proceeds to overthrow Judah as well. So by the time we reach 586 BC, all Israelites (from Judah and Israel) are in Babylonian captivity.

There are three groups in Judah that are taken captive before the entire nation of Judah is overthrown.

JUDAH EXILED TO BABYLON:

  • 1st Group Exiled: 605 BC (the prophet Daniel is taken with this group)
  • 2nd Group Exiled: 597 BC (the prophet Ezekiel is taken with this group)
    3rd/Final Group Exiled: 596 BC (the prophet Obadiah is taken with this group)

The book of Ezekiel focuses on his story. Ezekiel’s ministry starts after he’s taken captive and ends right before his death (also during exile). Ezekiel is known for his strange visions and rituals he undergoes as a prophet to God.

Many of his teachings come through the form of parables (which we will see again through Jesus’ ministry).

September Scripture Study on What the Bible Says About Humility

Join me in this 30 day September scripture study as we learn what the Bible teaches us about different types of humility and our need for it.

HUMILITY IN THE BIBLE

Pride. Success. Credit. Acknowledgement.

We all want to do well in life. To feel proud of ourselves. But how do we distinguish the fine line between self-confidence and selfishness?

The Bible has a lot to say about this. For one, God doesn’t want us to think negatively as a way to stay humble. In fact, he tells us the opposite. Here’s what God says about how we should think of ourselves:

  • Created in the image of God
  • As children of God
  • To think on good things
  • To be strong and persevere
  • Be thankful always
  • Be joyful in all circumstances
  • Not to be timid, but brave

God loves his children and he wants us to feel secure, not ashamed. He has given us gifts and talents he wants us to share with the world.

Humility comes down to this: What are we boasting in? His glory or our own?

When we succeed, we need to remember:

  • Who gave you this body that allows you to do these things?
  • Who gave you this brain to solve complex problems or know the right thing to say?
  • Who delivered you from your hardship and turned your mourning into laughter?
  • Who is to be praised in all of this?
"Therefore, as it is written: 'Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.'” 1 Corinthians 1:31

GIVING GLORY TO GOD

I don’t think any of us intentionally brag on ourselves over God, it’s just that we have not trained ourselves well enough in this area. It’s so easily to jump on the bandwagon of boasting about our own personal successes instead of giving credit where credit it due. It’s a simple mindset change really.

  • Because God ______________, I can _______________.

Let’s boast in the Lord today! Here, I’ll go first:

Because God knows me better than anyone else, I turned to him when I was at my lowest and allowed him to heal me. I am making progress more and more each day because of the wisdom that comes from Him and the faith I have that he can bring good out of bad.

Because God rescued me from my anxiety and depression, I am able to be a better mother and wife to my family.

Because God blessed me with talents of creativity, I now have my own business sharing his truth with others in a way that is helping women in their spiritual growth all around the world!

What are 3 statements you can make today?
