Rather then dive into the various theories regarding the abomination of denomination and the meaning of the different days, we will be looking at the last words conveyed by the angels to Daniel. Daniel has ministered well and faithfully over the reign of 4 kings and now is the conclusion of his life and the […]
Daniel’s final vision concludes with a vision of the final judgement in which all people, living and dead, will be judged by God. This message contains symbols that are still debated today. What do the days mean? What is the abomination of desolation? What does it mean for us today?
In Daniel 10, Daniel encounters Jesus in a vision. Daniel is overwhelmed by this experience, yet Jesus blesses and encourages Daniel. In this sermon we look at what it means to fear God and what it means to encounter God in ways that overwhelm us.
