  • HI, I'M ROBERT JEFFRESS,
  • 00:00:13.210 --> 00:00:15.150
  • AND WELCOME AGAIN TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:15.160 --> 00:00:18.210
  • TODAY WE'RE CONTINUING OUR STUDY IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL,
  • 00:00:18.220 --> 00:00:21.190
  • TITLED COURAGEOUS LIVING IN A PAGAN WORLD.
  • 00:00:21.200 --> 00:00:25.250
  • WHEN DANIEL WAS SENTENCED TO BE THROW INTO THE LIONS' DEN,
  • 00:00:25.260 --> 00:00:29.140
  • IT SEEMS AS THOUGH HIS FATE WAS SEALED,
  • 00:00:29.150 --> 00:00:32.060
  • BUT DANIEL HAD FAITH THAT GOD COULD ACCOMPLISH A MIRACLE,
  • 00:00:32.070 --> 00:00:36.100
  • EVEN IN LIGHT OF THIS TREACHEROUS SITUATION.
  • 00:00:36.110 --> 00:00:39.180
  • ON TODAY'S PROGRAM, WE WILL TURN TO DANIEL CHAPTER SIX
  • 00:00:41.010 --> 00:00:44.010
  • TO DISCOVER THREE TIMELESS PRINCIPLES
  • 00:00:44.020 --> 00:00:47.040
  • OF FACING ADVERSITY IN OUR OWN LIVES.
  • 00:00:47.050 --> 00:00:50.020
  • MY MESSAGE IS TITLED OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF LIONS
  • 00:00:50.030 --> 00:00:54.020
  • ON TODAY'S EDITION OF PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:54.030 --> 00:00:57.140
  • [NARRATOR] FROM CONFUSED AND FEARFUL
  • 00:01:04.220 --> 00:01:06.170
  • TO SKEPTICAL AND APATHETIC,
  • 00:01:06.180 --> 00:01:08.150
  • RESPONSES TO BIBLE PROPHECY ARE ALL OVER THE MAP.
  • 00:01:08.160 --> 00:01:12.020
  • SO WHY SHOULD WE BOTHER TRYING TO TACKLE
  • 00:01:12.030 --> 00:01:14.090
  • SUCH A DAUNTING TOPIC?
  • 00:01:14.100 --> 00:01:16.010
  • BECAUSE JESUS CHRIST IS COMING BACK.
  • 00:01:16.020 --> 00:01:18.240
  • DR. ROBERT JEFFRESS DELIVERED AN EYE-OPENING MESSAGE
  • 00:01:18.250 --> 00:01:21.250
  • ABOUT THE END TIMES ON LOCATION AT THE MOUNT OF OLIVES,
  • 00:01:21.260 --> 00:01:25.060
  • THE VERY PLACE WHERE JESUS IS PROPHESIED TO RETURN.
  • 00:01:25.070 --> 00:01:29.020
  • AND THE COPY OF THIS MESSAGE IS AVAILABLE TO YOU
  • 00:01:29.030 --> 00:01:31.150
  • ON BOTH CD AND DVD
  • 00:01:31.160 --> 00:01:34.040
  • WHEN YOU GIVE A GENEROUS GIFT TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:01:34.050 --> 00:01:36.250
  • AS YOU LISTEN AND WATCH, YOU'LL DISCOVER WHAT TO EXPECT
  • 00:01:36.260 --> 00:01:40.130
  • DURING THE RAPTURE AND THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST,
  • 00:01:40.140 --> 00:01:43.090
  • ALL IN THE PLACE WHERE THESE EVENTS WILL ONE DAY UNFOLD.
  • 00:01:43.100 --> 00:01:46.270
  • YOU'LL ALSO DISCOVER THE TELLTALE SIGNS
  • 00:01:46.280 --> 00:01:49.050
  • THAT WILL PRECEDE THE SECOND COMING.
  • 00:01:49.060 --> 00:01:51.060
  • PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THE SOON COMING RETURN OF CHRIST
  • 00:01:51.070 --> 00:01:54.070
  • BY REQUESTING THE KING IS COMING
  • 00:01:54.080 --> 00:01:56.030
  • FROM PATHWAY TO VICTORY TODAY.
  • 00:01:56.040 --> 00:01:58.010
  • PETER CARTWRIGHT WAS A CIRCUIT WRITING METHODIST TEACHER
  • 00:02:08.020 --> 00:02:12.240
  • IN THE 19TH CENTURY.
  • 00:02:12.250 --> 00:02:14.120
  • HE WAS KNOWN FOR SPEAKING THE TRUTH
  • 00:02:14.130 --> 00:02:16.280
  • WITHOUT ANY REGARD FOR CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:02:16.290 --> 00:02:19.140
  • AND DURING ONE OF HIS SERVICES AT ONE OF HIS CHURCHES,
  • 00:02:19.150 --> 00:02:22.250
  • HE WAS TOLD THAT PRESIDENT ANDREW JACKSON
  • 00:02:22.260 --> 00:02:25.180
  • WOULD BE IN ATTENDANCE.
  • 00:02:25.190 --> 00:02:27.230
  • AND SO, AT THE MIDPOINT AT THE SERMON,
  • 00:02:27.240 --> 00:02:30.160
  • PETER CARTWRIGHT SAID,
  • 00:02:30.170 --> 00:02:32.000
  • "I UNDERSTAND THAT PRESIDENT ANDREW JACKSON IS HERE TONIGHT,
  • 00:02:32.010 --> 00:02:35.090
  • "AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT IF PRESIDENT JACKSON
  • 00:02:35.100 --> 00:02:37.220
  • "DOES NOT REPENT OF HIS SINS,
  • 00:02:37.230 --> 00:02:39.180
  • "HE TOO WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN HELL."
  • 00:02:39.190 --> 00:02:43.160
  • WELL, THE CONGREGATION WAS AGHAST
  • 00:02:43.170 --> 00:02:45.230
  • THAT PETER CARTWRIGHT WOULD SAY ANYTHING LIKE THAT
  • 00:02:45.240 --> 00:02:47.270
  • WITH THE PRESIDENT IN ATTENDANCE.
  • 00:02:47.280 --> 00:02:49.290
  • AFTER THE SERVICE, PRESIDENT JACKSON
  • 00:02:50.000 --> 00:02:52.020
  • WENT UP TO SHAKE HANDS WITH PETER CARTWRIGHT,
  • 00:02:52.030 --> 00:02:54.210
  • AND HE SAID TO THE PREACHER,
  • 00:02:54.220 --> 00:02:56.120
  • "IF I HAD A REGIMENT OF MEN JUST LIKE YOU,
  • 00:02:56.130 --> 00:02:59.090
  • "I COULD WHIP THE WORLD."
  • 00:02:59.100 --> 00:03:01.080
  • YOU KNOW, THAT'S WHAT COURAGE IS,
  • 00:03:02.060 --> 00:03:03.280
  • SPEAKING THE TRUTH WITHOUT REGARD FOR CONSEQUENCES.
  • 00:03:03.290 --> 00:03:06.240
  • WEBSTER DEFINES IT THIS WAY.
  • 00:03:06.250 --> 00:03:08.200
  • COURAGE IS THE MORAL STRENGTH TO VENTURE, PERSEVERE,
  • 00:03:08.210 --> 00:03:13.010
  • AND WITHSTAND FEAR OR DIFFICULTY.
  • 00:03:13.020 --> 00:03:16.270
  • WHEN I READ THE BOOK OF DANIEL,
  • 00:03:16.280 --> 00:03:18.060
  • I FIND THAT DANIEL IS REALLY A PRIMMER
  • 00:03:18.070 --> 00:03:20.230
  • ON AUTHENTIC COURAGE.
  • 00:03:21.220 --> 00:03:23.190
  • JUST THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:03:23.200 --> 00:03:25.030
  • IN DANIEL CHAPTER ONE, YOU SEE HIS COURAGE AS A TEENAGER,
  • 00:03:25.040 --> 00:03:28.230
  • REFUSING TO EAT THE KING'S MEAT
  • 00:03:28.240 --> 00:03:30.260
  • AND THEREFORE VIOLATE THE LAW OF GOD.
  • 00:03:30.270 --> 00:03:33.180
  • IN CHAPTER TWO, YOU SEE HIS COURAGE
  • 00:03:33.190 --> 00:03:35.210
  • IN INTERPRETING THE DREAM FOR NEBUCHADNEZZAR,
  • 00:03:35.220 --> 00:03:37.250
  • THE DREAM THAT SPELLED THE END OF NEBUCHADNEZZAR'S KINGDOM.
  • 00:03:37.260 --> 00:03:42.190
  • IN CHAPTER THREE, YOU SEE THE INFLUENCE OF DANIEL,
  • 00:03:42.200 --> 00:03:46.090
  • GIVING HIS THREE PRINCE, SHADRACH, MESHACH AND ABEDNEGO,
  • 00:03:46.100 --> 00:03:49.270
  • THE COURAGE TO SAY NO TO NEBUCHADNEZZAR
  • 00:03:49.280 --> 00:03:52.250
  • AND NOT BOW DOWN BEFORE THE GOLDEN IMAGE.
  • 00:03:52.260 --> 00:03:55.170
  • IN CHAPTER FOUR, YOU SEE DANIEL'S COURAGE
  • 00:03:55.180 --> 00:03:58.130
  • IN BEING WILLING TO CHALLENGE NEBUCHADNEZZAR TO REPENT
  • 00:03:58.140 --> 00:04:02.000
  • OR FACE THE JUDGMENT OF GOD.
  • 00:04:02.010 --> 00:04:04.040
  • AND IN CHAPTER FIVE, YOU SEE HIS COURAGE AS AN OLD MAN
  • 00:04:04.050 --> 00:04:08.060
  • IN HIS EARLY 80S BEFORE BELSHAZZAR,
  • 00:04:08.070 --> 00:04:11.180
  • GIVING THAT INDICTMENT UPON THE KINGDOM
  • 00:04:11.190 --> 00:04:13.180
  • THAT WAS ABOUT TO CRUMBLE.
  • 00:04:13.190 --> 00:04:15.250
  • BUT ALL OF THOSE EXAMPLES OF COURAGE PALE IN COMPARISON
  • 00:04:15.260 --> 00:04:19.220
  • TO THE STORY WE'RE GOING TO SEE TONIGHT
  • 00:04:19.230 --> 00:04:21.260
  • THAT ILLUSTRATES WHAT REAL COURAGE IS.
  • 00:04:21.270 --> 00:04:24.220
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES TONIGHT,
  • 00:04:24.230 --> 00:04:26.040
  • TURN TO DANIEL CHAPTER SIX, DANIEL CHAPTER SIX,
  • 00:04:26.050 --> 00:04:30.040
  • AS WE LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GOD DELIVERS US
  • 00:04:30.050 --> 00:04:33.140
  • OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF LIONS.
  • 00:04:33.150 --> 00:04:35.220
  • NOW AGAIN, REMEMBER THE SETTING.
  • 00:04:35.230 --> 00:04:37.280
  • IN DANIEL CHAPTER FIVE,
  • 00:04:37.290 --> 00:04:39.220
  • DANIEL, AFTER LONG BEING FORGOTTEN BY PEOPLE,
  • 00:04:39.230 --> 00:04:43.190
  • WAS CALLED BACK INTO SERVICE BY BELSHAZZAR.
  • 00:04:43.200 --> 00:04:46.280
  • IT ENDS WITH CYRUS, THE KING OF PERSIA,
  • 00:04:46.290 --> 00:04:49.160
  • OVERTAKING THE CITY.
  • 00:04:49.170 --> 00:04:51.150
  • NOW WHEN WE COME TO CHAPTER SIX,
  • 00:04:51.160 --> 00:04:53.160
  • WE'RE NOT SURE HOW MANY YEARS THIS OCCURRED,
  • 00:04:53.170 --> 00:04:57.010
  • BUT ONCE AGAIN WE FIND CYRUS,
  • 00:04:57.020 --> 00:04:59.240
  • THE HEAD OF THE MEDO-PERSIAN EMPIRE,
  • 00:04:59.250 --> 00:05:02.030
  • IS THE RULER OVER PERSIA AND NOW OVER BABYLON.
  • 00:05:02.040 --> 00:05:06.090
  • LOOK AT VERSES ONE TO TWO.
  • 00:05:06.100 --> 00:05:08.010
  • IT SEEMED GOOD TO DARIUS TO APPOINT
  • 00:05:08.020 --> 00:05:10.240
  • 120 SATRAPS OVER THE KINGDOM,
  • 00:05:10.250 --> 00:05:13.190
  • THAT THEY WOULD BE IN CHARGE OF THE WHOLE KINGDOM,
  • 00:05:13.200 --> 00:05:15.270
  • AND OVER THEM THREE COMMISSIONERS OF
  • 00:05:15.280 --> 00:05:18.140
  • WHOM DANIEL WAS ONE,
  • 00:05:18.150 --> 00:05:19.240
  • THAT THE SATRAPS MIGHT BE ACCOUNTABLE TO THEM,
  • 00:05:19.250 --> 00:05:22.220
  • AND THAT THE KING MIGHT SUFFER LOSS.
  • 00:05:22.230 --> 00:05:25.250
  • NOW, THE BEST UNDERSTANDING IS THAT DARIUS IS TERM.
  • 00:05:25.260 --> 00:05:30.200
  • IT'S NOT NAME.
  • 00:05:30.210 --> 00:05:31.280
  • IT MEANS RULER, KIND OF LIKE PHARAOH OR CAESAR.
  • 00:05:31.290 --> 00:05:35.060
  • IT DOESN'T REFER TO ANY ONE PERSON.
  • 00:05:35.070 --> 00:05:36.290
  • IT IS A TITLE GIVEN TO WHOMEVER IS THE RULER AT THE TIME.
  • 00:05:37.000 --> 00:05:41.130
  • AND NOTICE HERE THAT THE PERSIANS ARE NOW RULING BABYLON,
  • 00:05:41.140 --> 00:05:45.240
  • AND IT WAS THEIR PRACTICE TO APPOINT GOVERNORS,
  • 00:05:45.250 --> 00:05:49.140
  • OR SATRAPS, OR COMMISSIONERS.
  • 00:05:49.150 --> 00:05:52.020
  • THINK OF THEM MAYBE AS CITY COUNSEL MEN
  • 00:05:52.030 --> 00:05:54.130
  • OVER THE ENTIRE EMPIRE.
  • 00:05:54.140 --> 00:05:56.070
  • THEY DIVIDED THE EMPIRE UP INTO 120 DISTRICTS
  • 00:05:56.080 --> 00:05:59.130
  • FOR THE PURPOSE OF TAXATION,
  • 00:05:59.140 --> 00:06:01.150
  • AND THEY WOULD HAVE CHARGE
  • 00:06:01.160 --> 00:06:02.240
  • OVER THEIR WARD OR THEIR DISTRICT,
  • 00:06:02.250 --> 00:06:04.280
  • AND THESE 120 SATRAPS WOULD IN TURN REPORT
  • 00:06:04.290 --> 00:06:09.100
  • TO THREE GOVERNORS WHO WOULD HEN REPORT TO DARIUS,
  • 00:06:09.110 --> 00:06:13.280
  • AND DANIEL WAS ONE OF THOSE THREE GOVERNORS OVER BABYLON,
  • 00:06:13.290 --> 00:06:18.290
  • UNDER THE PERSIAN RULE.
  • 00:06:19.210 --> 00:06:20.270
  • AND I FIND SOMETHING VERY INTERESTING HERE,
  • 00:06:20.280 --> 00:06:23.090
  • AND A GREAT POINT OF APPLICATION.
  • 00:06:23.100 --> 00:06:25.110
  • REMEMBER IN CHAPTER FIVE WHEN BELSHAZZAR
  • 00:06:25.120 --> 00:06:27.280
  • BROUGHT DANIEL IN AND SAID, "I'M DESPERATE.
  • 00:06:27.290 --> 00:06:29.290
  • "IF YOU WILL INTERPRET THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL,
  • 00:06:30.000 --> 00:06:32.220
  • "I WILL GIVE YOU A THIRD OF THE KINGDOM."
  • 00:06:32.230 --> 00:06:35.220
  • AND DANIEL SAID, "FORGET IT.
  • 00:06:35.230 --> 00:06:37.150
  • "I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR MONEY.
  • 00:06:37.160 --> 00:06:39.000
  • "I'M AN OLD MAN, I'M NOT GONNA BE AROUND THAT MUCH LONGER.
  • 00:06:39.010 --> 00:06:41.200
  • "I DON'T NEED YOUR MONEY, BUT I AM GONNA TELL YOU
  • 00:06:41.210 --> 00:06:43.170
  • "WHAT GOD HAS TO SAY TO YOU."
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:45.150
  • HE REFUSED 1/3 OF THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:06:45.160 --> 00:06:48.280
  • I THINK ONE REASON HE DID THAT WAS
  • 00:06:48.290 --> 00:06:51.060
  • HE KNEW 1/3 OF THIS KINGDOM DIDN'T MEAN A WHOLE LOT,
  • 00:06:51.070 --> 00:06:54.110
  • BECAUSE THAT VERY NIGHT THIS KINGDOM WAS COMING TO AN END,
  • 00:06:54.120 --> 00:06:57.110
  • AND SO HE REFUSED THAT PARTICULAR PROMOTION.
  • 00:06:57.120 --> 00:07:01.140
  • BUT WHEN WE COME TO CHAPTER SIX, DANIEL HAS BEEN PROMOTED.
  • 00:07:01.150 --> 00:07:05.120
  • HE IS ONE OF THE THREE GOVERNORS.
  • 00:07:05.130 --> 00:07:08.220
  • YOU KNOW THE PRINCIPLE I FIND HERE IS
  • 00:07:08.230 --> 00:07:10.290
  • GOD PROMOTES US IN HIS TIME, IN HIS WAY,
  • 00:07:11.000 --> 00:07:15.170
  • ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.
  • 00:07:15.180 --> 00:07:17.240
  • IF WE DO WHAT WE'RE SUPPOSED TO DO,
  • 00:07:17.250 --> 00:07:20.070
  • GOD WILL PROMOTE US AT HIS TIME.
  • 00:07:20.080 --> 00:07:23.280
  • PERHAPS YOU ARE WORKING IN A JOB
  • 00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:26.140
  • AND YOU'RE WORKING HARD AND YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE
  • 00:07:26.150 --> 00:07:29.210
  • ANYBODY NOTICES WHAT YOU ARE DOING,
  • 00:07:29.220 --> 00:07:32.060
  • THAT'S OKAY.
  • 00:07:32.070 --> 00:07:33.150
  • THE LAW OF THE HARVEST SAYS
  • 00:07:33.160 --> 00:07:35.000
  • THE HARVEST IS NOT ALWAYS IMMEDIATE,
  • 00:07:35.010 --> 00:07:37.130
  • BUT IT IS ALWAYS CERTAIN.
  • 00:07:37.140 --> 00:07:39.070
  • AND WHAT I'M SAYING TO YOU, WHOEVER YOU ARE,
  • 00:07:39.080 --> 00:07:41.150
  • IF YOU'RE WORKING HARD,
  • 00:07:41.160 --> 00:07:43.160
  • IF YOU'RE INVESTING YOUR LIFE IN SOMETHING WORTHWHILE,
  • 00:07:43.170 --> 00:07:46.140
  • EVENTUALLY, THE HARVEST WILL COME.
  • 00:07:46.150 --> 00:07:48.260
  • IT CERTAINLY DID FOR DANIEL.
  • 00:07:48.270 --> 00:07:51.070
  • BUT WHEN PROMOTIONS DO COME IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:07:51.080 --> 00:07:53.280
  • YOU BETTER BE PREPARED TO FACE THE ENVY
  • 00:07:53.290 --> 00:07:56.190
  • AND THE ATTACKS OF OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:07:56.200 --> 00:07:58.130
  • JUST LIKE DANIEL HAD TO.
  • 00:07:58.140 --> 00:08:00.180
  • THEN THIS DANIEL BEGAN DISTINGUISHING HIMSELF
  • 00:08:00.190 --> 00:08:03.250
  • AMONG THE COMMISSIONERS AND THE SATRAPS
  • 00:08:03.260 --> 00:08:06.200
  • BECAUSE HE POSSESSED AN EXTRAORDINARY SPIRIT.
  • 00:08:06.210 --> 00:08:10.020
  • THE KING PLANNED TO APPOINT HIM
  • 00:08:10.030 --> 00:08:12.110
  • OVER THE ENTIRE KINGDOM.
  • 00:08:12.120 --> 00:08:15.160
  • YOU SEE, DANIEL APPLIED HIMSELF TO HIS WORK.
  • 00:08:15.170 --> 00:08:18.090
  • HE WAS DIFFERENT THAN ANY OF THE OTHER COMMISSIONERS
  • 00:08:18.100 --> 00:08:21.000
  • OR ANY OF THE OTHER GOVERNORS.
  • 00:08:21.010 --> 00:08:22.230
  • HE CAME TO WORK EARLY.
  • 00:08:22.240 --> 00:08:24.080
  • HE LEFT LATE.
  • 00:08:24.090 --> 00:08:25.260
  • HE DIDN'T TRY TO PROMOTE HIS OWN AGENDA.
  • 00:08:25.270 --> 00:08:28.120
  • HE TRIED TO PROMOTE THE KING'S AGENDA.
  • 00:08:28.130 --> 00:08:31.060
  • HE'D CONDUCTED ALL OF HIS AFFAIRS WITH GREAT INTEGRITY.
  • 00:08:31.070 --> 00:08:35.120
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT, THE KING NOTICED HIM,
  • 00:08:35.130 --> 00:08:38.240
  • BUT SO DID HIS ENEMIES,
  • 00:08:38.250 --> 00:08:40.090
  • AND THAT'S WHERE WE FIND VERSE FOUR, LOOK AT THIS.
  • 00:08:40.100 --> 00:08:42.180
  • THEN THE COMMISSIONERS AND THE SATRAPS
  • 00:08:42.190 --> 00:08:44.140
  • BEGAN TRYING TO FIND A GROUND OF ACCUSATION AGAINST DANIEL
  • 00:08:44.150 --> 00:08:48.070
  • IN REGARD TO GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS,
  • 00:08:48.080 --> 00:08:50.150
  • BUT THEY COULD FIND NO GROUND OF ACCUSATION
  • 00:08:50.160 --> 00:08:52.260
  • OF EVIDENCE OF CORRUPTION,
  • 00:08:52.270 --> 00:08:54.250
  • AND AS MUCH AS HE WAS FAITHFUL
  • 00:08:54.260 --> 00:08:57.170
  • AND NO NEGLIGENCE OR CORRUPTION WAS TO BE FOUND IN HIM.
  • 00:08:57.180 --> 00:09:02.200
  • SOMEONE HAS WELL SAID,
  • 00:09:03.120 --> 00:09:04.240
  • "FOR EVERYONE ONE MAN WHO SINCERELY PITIES OUR MISFORTUNE,
  • 00:09:04.250 --> 00:09:07.230
  • "THERE ARE A THOUSAND WHO SINCERELY HATE OUR SUCCESS."
  • 00:09:07.240 --> 00:09:12.000
  • AND THAT WAS TRUE OF DANIEL.
  • 00:09:12.010 --> 00:09:13.280
  • THAT WAS THE SATRAPS.
  • 00:09:13.290 --> 00:09:15.180
  • THEY SAW THE WAY THE KING WAS RESPONDING TO DANIEL.
  • 00:09:15.190 --> 00:09:19.030
  • THE RUMOR MILL WAS A BUZZ THAT DANIEL
  • 00:09:19.040 --> 00:09:21.050
  • WAS ABOUT TO BE PROMOTED OVER THEM,
  • 00:09:21.060 --> 00:09:23.110
  • AND THEY SAID, "WE GOTTA DO SOMETHING TO STOP THIS GUY."
  • 00:09:23.120 --> 00:09:26.180
  • AND SO, THEY START LOOKING FOR ANYWAY THEY CAN TRIP HIM UP,
  • 00:09:26.190 --> 00:09:30.120
  • ANY KIND OF
  • 00:09:30.130 --> 00:09:31.240
  • WRONG BEHAVIOR ON HIS PART
  • 00:09:33.040 --> 00:09:35.120
  • THAT COULD CAUSE HIM NOT TO GET THE PROMOTION.
  • 00:09:35.130 --> 00:09:38.210
  • THEY LOOKED AT HIS FINANCIAL DEALINGS.
  • 00:09:38.220 --> 00:09:41.040
  • THEY LOOKED AT HIS ISSUES OF MORALITY AND INTEGRITY.
  • 00:09:41.050 --> 00:09:45.290
  • THEY LOOKED FOR SOMEWAY,
  • 00:09:46.000 --> 00:09:47.150
  • SOME SIGN OF DISLOYALTY TOWARD THE KING,
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:50.090
  • BUT THEY COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING.
  • 00:09:50.100 --> 00:09:53.140
  • LOOK AT VERSE FIVE.
  • 00:09:53.150 --> 00:09:54.260
  • THEY COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING, SO WHAT DID THEY DO?
  • 00:09:54.270 --> 00:09:56.180
  • THEN THESE MEN SAID, "WE WILL NOT FIND
  • 00:09:56.190 --> 00:09:58.290
  • "ANY GROUND OF ACCUSATION AGAINST THIS DANIEL
  • 00:09:59.000 --> 00:10:01.200
  • "UNLESS WE FIND IT AGAINST HIM
  • 00:10:01.210 --> 00:10:03.190
  • "IN REGARD TO THE LAW OF HIS GOD."
  • 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:06.140
  • WE CAN'T FIND ANYTHING,
  • 00:10:06.150 --> 00:10:08.010
  • SO WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO MANUFACTURE SOMETHING.
  • 00:10:08.020 --> 00:10:11.090
  • SO THE SATRAPS SET A TRAP.
  • 00:10:11.100 --> 00:10:14.060
  • DID YOU ALL APPRECIATE THAT LITTLE PUN THERE?
  • 00:10:14.070 --> 00:10:16.110
  • (CONGREGATION LAUGHS)
  • 00:10:16.120 --> 00:10:17.060
  • YEAH.
  • 00:10:17.070 --> 00:10:18.140
  • THEY SET A TRAP, AND HERE WAS THE TRAP,
  • 00:10:18.150 --> 00:10:20.140
  • BEGINNING IN VERSE SIX.
  • 00:10:20.150 --> 00:10:21.190
  • I'LL SUMMARIZE IT FOR YOU.
  • 00:10:21.200 --> 00:10:23.020
  • THE SATRAPS GO TO DARIUS AND THEY SAY,
  • 00:10:23.030 --> 00:10:25.030
  • "OH KING, LIVE FOREVER."
  • 00:10:25.040 --> 00:10:27.100
  • THAT'S HOW THEY BUTTER HIM UP.
  • 00:10:27.110 --> 00:10:28.200
  • YOU BUTTERED UP THE KING BY SAYING,
  • 00:10:28.210 --> 00:10:29.240
  • "OH KING, LIVE FOREVER."
  • 00:10:29.250 --> 00:10:31.280
  • THEY SAID, "WE'VE GOT A GREAT IDEA.
  • 00:10:31.290 --> 00:10:33.120
  • "WE'VE ALL BEEN HAVING THIS MEETING,
  • 00:10:33.130 --> 00:10:35.080
  • "AND WE WOULD LIKE TO PROMOTE PATRIOTISM IN OUR COUNTRY.
  • 00:10:35.090 --> 00:10:38.240
  • "WE WANNA WAVE THE FLAG.
  • 00:10:38.250 --> 00:10:40.240
  • "WE WANT TO CONGEAL ALL OF THE WORSHIP
  • 00:10:40.250 --> 00:10:44.040
  • "OF ALL OUR PEOPLE TOWARDS YOU ALONE, DARIUS.
  • 00:10:44.050 --> 00:10:47.000
  • "SO THIS IS WHAT WE WANNA DO.
  • 00:10:47.010 --> 00:10:48.120
  • "WE PROPOSE THAT FOR THE NEXT 30 DAYS
  • 00:10:48.130 --> 00:10:50.060
  • "YOU SIGN A LAW INTO EFFECT THAT SAYS
  • 00:10:50.070 --> 00:10:53.000
  • "PEOPLE ARE TO WORSHIP YOU ALONE.
  • 00:10:53.010 --> 00:10:55.060
  • "AND IF ANYBODY WORSHIPS ANY OTHER GOD
  • 00:10:55.070 --> 00:10:57.160
  • "OR PRAISE ANY OTHER GOD,
  • 00:10:57.170 --> 00:10:59.230
  • "THEY'LL BE THROWN INTO THE LIONS' DEN."
  • 00:10:59.240 --> 00:11:02.180
  • WELL, THAT APPEALED TO DARIUS OBVIOUSLY.
  • 00:11:02.190 --> 00:11:05.200
  • I MEAN HE WAS A PRIDEFUL MAN.
  • 00:11:05.210 --> 00:11:06.290
  • HE WAS A KING.
  • 00:11:07.000 --> 00:11:08.110
  • THE IDEA OF EXCLUSIVE WORSHIP, THAT APPEALED TO HIM.
  • 00:11:08.120 --> 00:11:11.040
  • AND SO THEY GET THE KING TO SIGN THIS LAW SAYING
  • 00:11:11.050 --> 00:11:13.190
  • FOR THE NEXT 30 DAYS, NO ONE CAN WORSHIP ANYONE,
  • 00:11:13.200 --> 00:11:16.070
  • EXCEPT DARIUS.
  • 00:11:16.080 --> 00:11:17.130
  • NOW LOOK AT VERSE 10, DANIEL'S DEVOTION.
  • 00:11:17.140 --> 00:11:20.130
  • THIS IS THE KEY VERSE IN THIS WHOLE CHAPTER.
  • 00:11:20.140 --> 00:11:23.010
  • NOW WHEN DANIEL KNEW THAT THE DOCUMENT WAS SIGNED,
  • 00:11:23.020 --> 00:11:25.270
  • HE ENTERED HIS HOUSE.
  • 00:11:25.280 --> 00:11:27.280
  • NOW ON HIS ROOF CHAMBER HE HAD
  • 00:11:27.290 --> 00:11:30.010
  • A WINDOW OPEN TOWARD JERUSALEM,
  • 00:11:30.020 --> 00:11:32.100
  • AND HE CONTINUED KNEELING ON HIS KNEES THREE TIMES A DAY,
  • 00:11:32.110 --> 00:11:36.220
  • PRAYING AND GIVING THANKS BEFORE THE GOD, HIS GOD,
  • 00:11:36.230 --> 00:11:40.180
  • AS HE HAS BEEN DOING PREVIOUSLY.
  • 00:11:40.190 --> 00:11:42.170
  • NOW, ISN'T THAT INTERESTING?
  • 00:11:44.070 --> 00:11:45.280
  • AS HE HAS BEEN DOING PREVIOUSLY.
  • 00:11:45.290 --> 00:11:47.250
  • THAT IS DANIEL DIDN'T DEVELOP SUDDENLY
  • 00:11:47.260 --> 00:11:49.250
  • A PRAYER LIFE THE MOMENT HE GOT INTO TROUBLE.
  • 00:11:49.260 --> 00:11:52.220
  • THAT'S WHAT A LOT OF PEOPLE DO.
  • 00:11:52.230 --> 00:11:54.070
  • THEY SUDDENLY BECOME CONVERTS TO THE IMPORTANCE OF PRAYING
  • 00:11:54.080 --> 00:11:56.140
  • WHEN THEIR BACKS ARE UP AGAINST THE WALL.
  • 00:11:56.150 --> 00:11:58.120
  • NOT DANIEL.
  • 00:11:58.130 --> 00:11:59.180
  • HE HAD HAD A LONG HISTORY OF DEVELOPING
  • 00:11:59.190 --> 00:12:02.100
  • A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THROUGH PRAYER.
  • 00:12:02.110 --> 00:12:04.210
  • I READ SOMEWHERE THAT IT TAKES 100 YEARS
  • 00:12:04.220 --> 00:12:08.070
  • TO GROW THOSE MASSIVE REDWOOD TREES YOU SEE IN CALIFORNIA.
  • 00:12:08.080 --> 00:12:11.280
  • THOSE MASSIVE REDWOODS THAT ARE ABLE TO WITHSTAND
  • 00:12:11.290 --> 00:12:14.170
  • ANY STORM THAT COMES.
  • 00:12:14.180 --> 00:12:16.030
  • IT TAKES A HUNDRED YEARS TO GROW A REDWOOD.
  • 00:12:16.040 --> 00:12:18.120
  • IT TAKES SIX MONTHS TO GROW A SQUASH.
  • 00:12:18.130 --> 00:12:21.240
  • HOW CAN YOU MAKE SURE YOUR FAITH
  • 00:12:23.090 --> 00:12:24.240
  • IS GOING TO WITHSTAND THE ADVERSITY
  • 00:12:24.250 --> 00:12:27.040
  • THAT BLOWS INTO YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:12:27.050 --> 00:12:29.070
  • IT MEANS YEARS OF DEVELOPING THAT DISCIPLINE OF PRAYING,
  • 00:12:29.080 --> 00:12:33.270
  • OF TALKING TO GOD REGULARLY.
  • 00:12:33.280 --> 00:12:36.150
  • NOW LOOK AT VERSE 11.
  • 00:12:36.160 --> 00:12:37.210
  • THEN THESE MEN CAME BY AGREEMENT
  • 00:12:38.170 --> 00:12:41.230
  • AND THEY FOUND DANIEL MAKING PETITION
  • 00:12:41.240 --> 00:12:44.000
  • AND SUPPLICATION BEFORE HIS GOD.
  • 00:12:44.010 --> 00:12:45.190
  • DON'T YOU THINK IT'S INTERESTING
  • 00:12:45.200 --> 00:12:46.290
  • THAT WHEN THE SATRAPS WANTED TO FIND DANIEL,
  • 00:12:47.000 --> 00:12:48.280
  • THEY KNEW EXACTLY WHERE TO FIND HIM?
  • 00:12:48.290 --> 00:12:51.090
  • THEY KNEW HE WOULD BE ON HIS KNEES PRAYING BEFORE GOD.
  • 00:12:51.100 --> 00:12:54.060
  • THE FACT THAT THEY FOUND DANIEL
  • 00:12:54.070 --> 00:12:57.120
  • DISOBEYING DARIUS'S ORDER GAVE DARIUS A DILEMMA.
  • 00:12:57.130 --> 00:13:02.080
  • WE FIND THAT DILEMMA IN VERSE 12 TO 13.
  • 00:13:02.090 --> 00:13:04.250
  • THEN THEY APPROACH AND SPOKE BEFORE THE KING
  • 00:13:04.260 --> 00:13:07.000
  • ABOUT THE KING'S INJUNCTION.
  • 00:13:07.010 --> 00:13:09.020
  • DID YOU NOT SIGN AN INJUNCTION THAT ANY MAN
  • 00:13:09.030 --> 00:13:11.200
  • WHO MAKES A PETITION TO ANY GOD OR MAN
  • 00:13:11.210 --> 00:13:13.210
  • BESIDE YOU, O KING, FOR 30 DAYS,
  • 00:13:13.220 --> 00:13:15.100
  • IS TO BE CAST INTO THE LIONS' DEN.
  • 00:13:15.110 --> 00:13:17.190
  • THE KING REPLIED, "THE STATEMENT IS TRUE,
  • 00:13:17.200 --> 00:13:19.230
  • "ACCORDING TO THE LAW OF THE MEDES AND THE PERSIANS,
  • 00:13:19.240 --> 00:13:22.130
  • "WHICH MAY NOT BE REVOKED."
  • 00:13:22.140 --> 00:13:24.060
  • VERSE 13.
  • 00:13:24.070 --> 00:13:25.140
  • THEN THEY ANSWERED AND SPOKE BEFORE THE KING,
  • 00:13:25.150 --> 00:13:27.170
  • "DANIEL, WHO IS ONE OF THE EXILES FROM JUDAH,
  • 00:13:27.180 --> 00:13:30.200
  • "PAYS NO ATTENTION TO YOU, O KING,
  • 00:13:30.210 --> 00:13:32.200
  • "OR TO THE INJUNCTION WHICH YOU SIGNED,
  • 00:13:32.210 --> 00:13:34.180
  • "BUT KEEPS MAKING HIS PETITION THREE TIMES A DAY."
  • 00:13:34.190 --> 00:13:39.090
  • AFTER CONFIRMING THAT DARIUS INDEED HAS SIGNED THIS ORDER,
  • 00:13:39.100 --> 00:13:43.000
  • THEY DID THEN JUST WITH A GRIN ON THEIR FACE THEY SAY,
  • 00:13:43.010 --> 00:13:46.190
  • "WE GOT HIM.
  • 00:13:46.200 --> 00:13:47.230
  • "DANIEL HAS BEEN DISOBEYING YOUR DECREE."
  • 00:13:47.240 --> 00:13:51.040
  • LOOK AT VERSE 14.
  • 00:13:51.050 --> 00:13:52.180
  • THEN, AS SOON AS THE KING HEARD THIS STATEMENT,
  • 00:13:52.190 --> 00:13:56.060
  • HE WAS DEEPLY DISTRESSED,
  • 00:13:56.070 --> 00:13:59.040
  • AND HE SET HIS MIND ON DELIVERING DANIEL,
  • 00:13:59.050 --> 00:14:01.210
  • AND EVEN UNTIL SUNSET,
  • 00:14:01.220 --> 00:14:03.200
  • HE KEPT EXERTING HIMSELF TO RESCUE HIM.
  • 00:14:03.210 --> 00:14:07.070
  • NOTICE THE CONTRAST HERE BETWEEN DARIUS'S RESPONSE
  • 00:14:07.080 --> 00:14:11.150
  • AND NEBUCHADNEZZAR'S RESPONSE YEARS EARLIER
  • 00:14:11.160 --> 00:14:14.240
  • WHEN HE HEARD THAT THREE OF THE HEBREWS
  • 00:14:14.250 --> 00:14:17.050
  • WERE NOT BOWING DOWN TO THE GOLDEN IMAGE
  • 00:14:17.060 --> 00:14:19.110
  • NEBUCHADNEZZAR SET UP.
  • 00:14:19.120 --> 00:14:20.260
  • REMEMBER HOW NEBUCHADNEZZAR REACTED?
  • 00:14:20.270 --> 00:14:22.280
  • HE WAS FURIOUS.
  • 00:14:22.290 --> 00:14:24.210
  • HE WAS ENRAGED.
  • 00:14:24.220 --> 00:14:26.100
  • IN FACT, HE WAS SO MAD HE ORDERED
  • 00:14:26.110 --> 00:14:28.010
  • THAT THE FURNACE BE TURNED UP SEVEN TIMES HOTTER
  • 00:14:28.020 --> 00:14:30.110
  • THAN IT USUALLY WAS.
  • 00:14:30.120 --> 00:14:32.100
  • NEBUCHADNEZZAR WAS ENRAGED BY THIS LACK OF LOYALTY,
  • 00:14:32.110 --> 00:14:36.180
  • NOT DARIUS.
  • 00:14:36.190 --> 00:14:37.220
  • HE WAS SADDENED BY IT.
  • 00:14:37.230 --> 00:14:39.220
  • HE HAD GROWN TO LOVE DANIEL AND RESPECT DANIEL,
  • 00:14:39.230 --> 00:14:42.100
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS HE BEGAN LOOKING FOR ANY WAY
  • 00:14:42.110 --> 00:14:45.200
  • THAT HE COULD RESCUE HIM OUT OF THIS DILEMMA.
  • 00:14:45.210 --> 00:14:49.220
  • BUT YOU SEE, THE KING WAS BOUND BY A HIGHER LAW
  • 00:14:49.230 --> 00:14:53.220
  • THAT DID NOT ALLOW HIM TO RESCUE DANIEL.
  • 00:14:53.230 --> 00:14:57.050
  • AND I HAVE TO STOP HERE AND DRAW THE OBVIOUS PARALLEL
  • 00:14:57.060 --> 00:15:01.210
  • BETWEEN GOD'S RELATIONSHIP TO MAN.
  • 00:15:01.220 --> 00:15:03.240
  • GOD DOESN'T HATE MANKIND.
  • 00:15:04.290 --> 00:15:07.020
  • HE LOVES MANKIND.
  • 00:15:07.030 --> 00:15:09.080
  • HE IS DISTRESSED BY MAN'S SIN.
  • 00:15:09.090 --> 00:15:11.190
  • BUT UNLIKE DARIUS, HE WAS ABLE TO FIND A SOLUTION,
  • 00:15:13.020 --> 00:15:15.210
  • AND THE SOLUTION WAS TO SEND JESUS,
  • 00:15:15.220 --> 00:15:17.200
  • HIS SON AND OUR SAVIOR, TO DIE ON THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS.
  • 00:15:17.210 --> 00:15:21.160
  • DARIUS HAD NO CHOICE,
  • 00:15:21.170 --> 00:15:23.110
  • AND SO HE RELUCTANTLY DELIVERS DANIEL
  • 00:15:23.120 --> 00:15:25.260
  • INTO THE LIONS' DEN.
  • 00:15:25.270 --> 00:15:27.190
  • AND AS THEY STAND AT THE ENTRYWAY
  • 00:15:27.200 --> 00:15:29.100
  • INTO THE CAVERN OF DEATH,
  • 00:15:29.110 --> 00:15:30.240
  • I WANT YOU TO NOTICE WHAT DARIUS SAYS ABOUT DANIEL'S GOD,
  • 00:15:30.250 --> 00:15:35.250
  • VERSE 16 AND 17.
  • 00:15:36.130 --> 00:15:37.160
  • THEN THE KING GAVE ORDERS,
  • 00:15:37.170 --> 00:15:39.140
  • AND DANIEL WAS BROUGHT IN AND CAST INTO THE LION' DEN.
  • 00:15:39.150 --> 00:15:43.220
  • BUT THE KING SPOKE AND SAID TO DANIEL,
  • 00:15:43.230 --> 00:15:45.220
  • "YOUR GOD WHO YOU CONSTANTLY SERVE
  • 00:15:45.230 --> 00:15:48.240
  • "WILL HIMSELF DELIVER YOU."
  • 00:15:48.250 --> 00:15:51.090
  • ISN'T THAT FASCINATING?
  • 00:15:52.140 --> 00:15:54.140
  • DARIUS HAD BEEN AROUND DANIEL LONG ENOUGH.
  • 00:15:54.150 --> 00:15:57.010
  • DANIEL HAD EXERTED ENOUGH INFLUENCE ON HIS EMPLOYER
  • 00:15:57.020 --> 00:16:00.130
  • THAT HE MADE HIM A BELIEVER IN THE POWER OF THE TRUE GOD.
  • 00:16:00.140 --> 00:16:04.050
  • AND SO VERSE SEVEN 17,
  • 00:16:04.060 --> 00:16:05.200
  • A STONE WAS BROUGHT AND LAID OVER THE MOUTH OF THE DEN,
  • 00:16:05.210 --> 00:16:07.220
  • AND THE KING SEALED IT WITH HIS OWN SIGNET RING
  • 00:16:07.230 --> 00:16:10.120
  • AND WITH THE SIGNET RINGS OF HIS NOBLES,
  • 00:16:10.130 --> 00:16:12.140
  • SO THAT NOTHING COULD BE CHANGED IN REGARD TO DANIEL.
  • 00:16:12.150 --> 00:16:15.090
  • NO MATTER HOW MUCH HE WANTED TO COME AND RESCUE HIM,
  • 00:16:15.100 --> 00:16:18.110
  • HE WAS UNABLE TO DO SO.
  • 00:16:18.120 --> 00:16:20.170
  • NOW, HERE'S AN INTERESTING PLOT DEVELOPMENT
  • 00:16:20.180 --> 00:16:23.280
  • WHEN WE GET TO VERSE 18, DANIEL'S DELIVERANCE.
  • 00:16:23.290 --> 00:16:27.050
  • NOTICE WHERE THE SCENE GOES.
  • 00:16:27.060 --> 00:16:29.210
  • YOU WOULD NORMALLY THINK THAT IN TELLING THIS STORY,
  • 00:16:29.220 --> 00:16:32.280
  • YOU WOULD CUT THE LIONS' DEN
  • 00:16:32.290 --> 00:16:35.090
  • AND SHOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN THE LIONS' DEN.
  • 00:16:35.100 --> 00:16:38.100
  • WE GET NO PICTURE OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING
  • 00:16:38.110 --> 00:16:39.260
  • IN THE LIONS' DEN THAT NIGHT.
  • 00:16:39.270 --> 00:16:41.200
  • INSTEAD, VERSE 18 OPENS UP IN THE KING'S PALACE.
  • 00:16:41.210 --> 00:16:46.240
  • THEN THE KING, AFTER HE'S DELIVERED DANIEL
  • 00:16:46.250 --> 00:16:49.100
  • TO THE LIONS' DEN,
  • 00:16:49.110 --> 00:16:50.180
  • TENT HE KING WENT OFF TO HIS PALACE
  • 00:16:50.190 --> 00:16:52.170
  • AND SPENT THE NIGHT FASTING,
  • 00:16:52.180 --> 00:16:55.080
  • AND NO ENTERTAINMENT WAS BROUGHT BEFORE HIM,
  • 00:16:55.090 --> 00:16:57.250
  • AND HIS SLEEP FLED FROM HIM.
  • 00:16:57.260 --> 00:17:00.050
  • THE KING HAD A RESTLESS NIGHT.
  • 00:17:01.050 --> 00:17:02.270
  • HE WAS FASTING, PERHAPS PRAYING TO GOD,
  • 00:17:02.280 --> 00:17:05.130
  • PRAYING FOR SOME KIND OF DELIVERANCE,
  • 00:17:05.140 --> 00:17:08.150
  • BUT HIS SLEEP ELUDED HIM.
  • 00:17:08.160 --> 00:17:11.070
  • WHAT ABOUT DANIEL?
  • 00:17:11.080 --> 00:17:12.230
  • WE'RE NOT TOLD, BUT I HAVE A SENSE FROM DANIEL'S REACTION
  • 00:17:12.240 --> 00:17:15.230
  • PREVIOUSLY AND SUBSEQUENTLY,
  • 00:17:15.240 --> 00:17:17.280
  • I THINK HAD A RESTFUL NIGHT OF SLEEP IN THAT LIONS' DEN,
  • 00:17:17.290 --> 00:17:22.080
  • BECAUSE HE HAD PUT HIS FAITH
  • 00:17:22.090 --> 00:17:23.190
  • IN THE SUPERNATURAL POWER OF GOD.
  • 00:17:23.200 --> 00:17:26.180
  • AT FIRST, LIKE THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:17:26.190 --> 00:17:28.120
  • THE KING RAN TO THE CAVE EARLY THE NEXT MORNING.
  • 00:17:28.130 --> 00:17:31.160
  • LOOK AT VERSE 20.
  • 00:17:31.170 --> 00:17:32.250
  • WHEN HE HAD COME NEAR THE DEN TO DANIEL,
  • 00:17:32.260 --> 00:17:35.090
  • HE CRIED OUT WITH A TROUBLED VOICE.
  • 00:17:35.100 --> 00:17:37.240
  • THE KING SPOKE AND SAID TO DANIEL,
  • 00:17:37.250 --> 00:17:39.230
  • "DANIEL, SERVANT OF THE LIVING GOD,
  • 00:17:39.240 --> 00:17:41.280
  • "HAS YOUR GOD WHOM YOU CONSTANTLY SERVE
  • 00:17:41.290 --> 00:17:44.220
  • "BEEN ABLE TO DELIVER YOU FROM THE LIONS?"
  • 00:17:44.230 --> 00:17:47.160
  • AND THEN DANIEL SPOKE TO THE KING,
  • 00:17:47.170 --> 00:17:49.100
  • "O KING, LIVE FOREVER, MY GOD SENT HIS ANGEL
  • 00:17:49.110 --> 00:17:52.260
  • "AND SHUT THE LIONS' MOUTHS AND THEY HAVE NOT HARMED ME
  • 00:17:52.270 --> 00:17:55.230
  • "INASMUCH AS I WAS FOUND INNOCENT BEFORE HIM
  • 00:17:55.240 --> 00:17:58.270
  • "AND ALSO TOWARD YOU, O KING.
  • 00:17:58.280 --> 00:18:00.220
  • "I HAVE COMMITTED NO CRIME."
  • 00:18:00.230 --> 00:18:02.220
  • AND THEN THE KING WAS VERY PLEASED,
  • 00:18:02.230 --> 00:18:04.210
  • AND HE GAVE ORDERS FOR DANIEL TO BE TAKEN UP OUT OF THE DEN,
  • 00:18:04.220 --> 00:18:07.290
  • SO DANIEL WAS TAKEN UP OUT OF THE DEN
  • 00:18:08.000 --> 00:18:09.270
  • AND NO INJURY WHATSOEVER WAS FOUND ON HIM,
  • 00:18:09.280 --> 00:18:13.080
  • BECAUSE HE HAD TRUSTED IN HIS GOD.
  • 00:18:13.090 --> 00:18:16.030
  • AND THEN NOTICE VERSE 24.
  • 00:18:16.040 --> 00:18:17.260
  • THE KING THEN GAVE ORDERS,
  • 00:18:17.270 --> 00:18:20.030
  • AND THEY BROUGHT THOSE MEN
  • 00:18:20.040 --> 00:18:21.110
  • WHO HAD MALICIOUSLY ACCUSED DANIEL,
  • 00:18:21.120 --> 00:18:23.200
  • AND THEY CAST THEM, THEIR CHILDREN AND THEIR WIVES
  • 00:18:23.210 --> 00:18:28.200
  • INTO THE LIONS' DEN,
  • 00:18:28.210 --> 00:18:30.180
  • AND THEY HAD NOT REACHED THE BOTTOM OF THIS DEN
  • 00:18:30.190 --> 00:18:33.070
  • BEFORE THE LIONS OVERPOWERED THEM
  • 00:18:33.080 --> 00:18:35.130
  • AND CRUSHED ALL OF THEIR BONES.
  • 00:18:35.140 --> 00:18:38.200
  • THOSE LIONS HAVE BEEN DEPRIVED OF FOOD FOR A WHOLE NIGHT.
  • 00:18:38.210 --> 00:18:42.090
  • THEY WERE READY FOR PERSIAN BUFFET,
  • 00:18:42.100 --> 00:18:44.270
  • AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THEY HAD RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:18:44.280 --> 00:18:47.150
  • THEY FEASTED ON THE BONES,
  • 00:18:47.160 --> 00:18:48.290
  • NOT ONLY OF THOSE WHO HAVE ACCUSED DANIEL,
  • 00:18:49.000 --> 00:18:51.090
  • BUT THE WIVES AND THE CHILDREN AS WELL.
  • 00:18:51.100 --> 00:18:54.010
  • NOW, THIS IS A DRAMATIC STORY,
  • 00:18:55.280 --> 00:18:58.190
  • BUT SOMETIMES WE ALLOW THE DRAMA OF THE STORY
  • 00:18:58.200 --> 00:19:01.140
  • TO OVERSHADOW THE IMPORTANT PRINCIPLES
  • 00:19:01.150 --> 00:19:03.290
  • THAT WE FIND IN THIS PASSAGE FOR YOU AND FOR ME,
  • 00:19:04.000 --> 00:19:07.280
  • BECAUSE DANIEL'S RESPONSE GIVES US SOME HINTS
  • 00:19:07.290 --> 00:19:10.280
  • ABOUT HOW WE CAN FACE ADVERSITY,
  • 00:19:10.290 --> 00:19:13.040
  • NOT IF IT COMES INTO OUR LIFE,
  • 00:19:13.050 --> 00:19:15.060
  • BUT WHEN IT COMES INTO OUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:15.070 --> 00:19:16.240
  • I WANT YOU TO JOT DOWN THESE THREE PRINCIPLES
  • 00:19:16.250 --> 00:19:18.240
  • ABOUT FACING ADVERSITY IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:19:18.250 --> 00:19:22.050
  • NUMBER ONE, REFUSE TO PARALYZED BY FEAR.
  • 00:19:22.060 --> 00:19:26.200
  • REFUSED TO BE PARALYZED BY FEAR.
  • 00:19:26.210 --> 00:19:29.130
  • I REMEMBER DECADES AGO,
  • 00:19:29.140 --> 00:19:31.160
  • I WAS SITTING IN MY OFFICE IN EASTLAND, TEXAS
  • 00:19:32.270 --> 00:19:36.030
  • WHEN SUDDENLY OUT OF NOWHERE WAS PARALYZED BY THIS THOUGHT
  • 00:19:36.040 --> 00:19:41.010
  • THAT I WAS GOING TO DIE AND I WAS GOING TO DIE SOON.
  • 00:19:41.020 --> 00:19:44.180
  • I DON'T KNOW WHERE THE THOUGHT CAME FROM,
  • 00:19:44.190 --> 00:19:46.200
  • BUT IT CEASED ME, IT PARALYZED ME.
  • 00:19:46.210 --> 00:19:48.230
  • I COULDN'T MOVE.
  • 00:19:48.240 --> 00:19:50.070
  • FOR THE NEXT HOURS, I DIDN'T WANNA PRAY.
  • 00:19:50.080 --> 00:19:52.100
  • I DIDN'T WANNA READ MY BIBLE.
  • 00:19:52.110 --> 00:19:54.000
  • I DIDN'T WANNA DO ANYTHING,
  • 00:19:54.010 --> 00:19:55.200
  • AND THEN GOD BROUGHT TO MIND 2 TIMOTHY 1:7.
  • 00:19:56.250 --> 00:20:00.100
  • FOR GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR,
  • 00:20:00.110 --> 00:20:03.220
  • BUT OF LOVE, AND POWER, AND OF A SOUND MIND.
  • 00:20:03.230 --> 00:20:07.070
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THE GREATEST ANTIDOTE TO FEAR IS?
  • 00:20:08.180 --> 00:20:11.160
  • IT'S FAITH.
  • 00:20:11.170 --> 00:20:13.050
  • IT'S FAITH.
  • 00:20:13.060 --> 00:20:14.180
  • FAITH DOESN'T MEAN AUTOMATIC DELIVERANCE.
  • 00:20:14.190 --> 00:20:16.270
  • IT DOESN'T MEAN GOD IS GONNA DO WHAT WE WANT HIM TO DO.
  • 00:20:16.280 --> 00:20:19.220
  • FAITH MEANS BELIEVING GOD'S GONNA ACCOMPLISH
  • 00:20:19.230 --> 00:20:22.140
  • HIS PURPOSE IN OUR LIVES WHATEVER HAPPENS,
  • 00:20:22.150 --> 00:20:25.130
  • AND GOD'S PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE IS A GOOD PURPOSE.
  • 00:20:25.140 --> 00:20:28.180
  • GOD'S PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE IS FOR GOOD
  • 00:20:28.190 --> 00:20:31.100
  • AND IT'S FOR HIS GLORY,
  • 00:20:31.110 --> 00:20:32.200
  • AND IN THAT WE CAN REST.
  • 00:20:32.210 --> 00:20:34.280
  • WHEN ARROWS COME INTO YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:20:34.290 --> 00:20:36.180
  • REFUSE TO BE PARALYZED BY FEAR.
  • 00:20:36.190 --> 00:20:39.130
  • SECONDLY, RETAIN A CLEAR CONSCIENCE.
  • 00:20:39.140 --> 00:20:42.210
  • WHEN ADVERSITY COMES,
  • 00:20:43.170 --> 00:20:44.230
  • MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A CLEAR CONSCIENCE.
  • 00:20:44.240 --> 00:20:47.210
  • KNOW FOR SURE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN OBEDIENT TO GOD
  • 00:20:47.220 --> 00:20:50.170
  • AS BEST YOU CAN IN EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:20:50.180 --> 00:20:53.060
  • BECAUSE WHEN YOU KNOW THAT, IT GIVES INCREDIBLE COURAGE
  • 00:20:53.070 --> 00:20:57.180
  • TO FACE WHATEVER ADVERSITY YOU'RE FACING.
  • 00:20:57.190 --> 00:21:01.170
  • CONVERSELY, IF TROUBLE COMES INTO OUR LIFE
  • 00:21:01.180 --> 00:21:05.030
  • AND WE KNOW THERE HAS BEEN DISOBEDIENCE IN OUR LIFE,
  • 00:21:05.040 --> 00:21:07.270
  • WE CAN'T HELP BUT THINK THAT PERHAPS THIS TROUBLE
  • 00:21:07.280 --> 00:21:11.120
  • IS A RESULT OF GOD'S DISCIPLINE IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:11.130 --> 00:21:15.100
  • A CLEAR CONSCIENCE IS THE ASSURANCE
  • 00:21:15.110 --> 00:21:18.100
  • THAT NEITHER GOD, NOR ANYONE ELSE
  • 00:21:18.110 --> 00:21:20.110
  • CAN ACCUSE YOU OF A WRONG
  • 00:21:20.120 --> 00:21:22.200
  • YOU HAVE NOT ATTEMPTED TO MAKE RIGHT.
  • 00:21:22.210 --> 00:21:25.110
  • ABOVE ALL, PAUL SAID, KEEP FAITH AND A CLEAR CONSCIENCE,
  • 00:21:25.120 --> 00:21:29.200
  • WOULD SOME HAVE REJECTED AND SUFFERED SHIPWRECK
  • 00:21:29.210 --> 00:21:32.230
  • IN REGARD TO THEIR FAITH.
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:34.290
  • NUMBER THREE, WHEN ADVERSITY COMES INTO YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:21:35.000 --> 00:21:37.180
  • REMAIN IN CONTACT WITH GOD.
  • 00:21:37.190 --> 00:21:39.290
  • I THINK IT'S DANIEL'S PRAYER LIFE
  • 00:21:40.000 --> 00:21:42.060
  • THAT GAVE HIM THE COURAGE TO GO INTO THE LIONS' DEN.
  • 00:21:42.070 --> 00:21:46.130
  • IT GAVE HIM THE COURAGE TO STAND UP
  • 00:21:46.140 --> 00:21:49.000
  • TO DARIUS AND NEBUCHADNEZZAR AND BELSHAZZAR.
  • 00:21:49.010 --> 00:21:53.170
  • BECAUSE YOU SEE, THERE WAS SOMETHING
  • 00:21:53.180 --> 00:21:55.030
  • ABOUT A CONSISTENT PRAYER LIFE THAT REMINDED DANIEL
  • 00:21:55.040 --> 00:21:58.030
  • THAT ALL THAT REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE
  • 00:21:58.040 --> 00:22:00.030
  • IS WHAT GOD THINKS ABOUT ME.
  • 00:22:00.040 --> 00:22:02.100
  • HAVE YOU COME TO THAT CONCLUSION
  • 00:22:02.110 --> 00:22:03.210
  • WHEN YOU REALIZED IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:22:03.220 --> 00:22:05.130
  • WHAT ANYBODY ELSE THINKS ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:22:05.140 --> 00:22:07.000
  • ALL THAT MATTERS IS WHAT GOD THINKS.
  • 00:22:07.010 --> 00:22:09.030
  • IN MATTHEW 10:28, JESUS SAID,
  • 00:22:09.040 --> 00:22:11.120
  • "DON'T FEAR THOSE WHO CAN ONLY KILL THE BODY,
  • 00:22:11.130 --> 00:22:14.290
  • "BUT RATHER FEAR HIM WHO IS ABLE TO DESTROY
  • 00:22:15.000 --> 00:22:18.200
  • "BOTH THE SOUL AND THE BODY IN HELL."
  • 00:22:18.210 --> 00:22:21.210
  • AS LONG AS WE KNOW WE HAVE GOD'S APPROVAL ON OUR LIFE,
  • 00:22:23.040 --> 00:22:26.030
  • NOTHING ELSE REALLY MATTERS, DOES IT?
  • 00:22:27.120 --> 00:22:29.110
  • MUSIC
  • 00:22:30.160 --> 00:22:33.080
  • WHEN DANIEL'S LIFE WAS THREATENED, HE NEVER FLINCHED.
  • 00:22:34.190 --> 00:22:38.110
  • HE DIDN'T COWER.
  • 00:22:38.120 --> 00:22:39.220
  • HE DIDN'T CAVE IN TO THE KING'S WISHES.
  • 00:22:39.230 --> 00:22:43.000
  • NOW, DANIEL'S IMMEDIATE RESPONSE
  • 00:22:43.010 --> 00:22:45.190
  • WAS TO DROP TO HIS KNEES IN PRAYER.
  • 00:22:45.200 --> 00:22:49.010
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT LION YOU'RE FACING TODAY,
  • 00:22:49.020 --> 00:22:51.280
  • BUT MY GUESS IS THAT YOU HAVE BEEN
  • 00:22:51.290 --> 00:22:53.190
  • THINKING ABOUT A SITUATION THAT HAS BECOME A THREAT

  • TO YOUR WELL-BEING.
  • 00:22:56.120 --> 00:22:58.050

  • 00:22:58.060 --> 00:23:01.290
