What prophecies in the book of Daniel have already been fulfilled? Find out with hosts Tim Moore and Nathan Jones on the television program, Christ in Prophecy!


Tim Moore: Hello again and welcome to another episode of Christ in Prophecy! We’re very glad you’ve joined us today. We’re in the midst of a series of programs on the book of Daniel. This short, 12-chapter final book in the Major Prophets punches well above its weight in terms of significance and sweeping vision. Our deep dive into Daniel will lay a solid foundation to then move toward a study of Revelation in several weeks.

Nathan Jones: Well, last week we reviewed the narrative portions of Daniel, that’s the first 7 chapters which deal his-story of Daniel’s life, and his interaction with a series of pagan kings as he served in exile. Daniel was not only a passionate student of prophecy, he was anointed to be a revealer and interpreter of prophecy—at least to a point, as we’ll discuss later.

He and his Jewish friends determined not to defile themselves even as they served the king of Babylon. His integrity and faithfulness set him apart. God then enabled him to interpret Nebuchadnezzar’s dreams and Belshazzar’s handwriting on the wall. And, God miraculously preserved Daniel’s friends in the midst of a fiery furnace and Daniel himself in a lion’s den!

Tim Moore: Daniel’s life story is miraculous from beginning to end. Perhaps the most amazing thing is that Daniel never wallowed in self-pity even though he was carted off from his defeated homeland and forced to serve in a pagan society. He recognized the hand of God at work in the devastating events and the outpouring of blessing in his life. In that regard, Daniel stands as a pre-figure or type of the coming Messiah. Surrounded by evildoers, he never defiled himself. He remained faithful to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, trusting in God’s promises and intervening mightily on behalf of his people. Today we want to turn to those prophecies Daniel communicated that have already come true in history.

Lamb and Lion Ministries
Lamb & Lion Ministries was founded in 1980 as a non-denominational, independent ministry. The Ministry does not seek to convert people to any particular church. Rather, it seeks to lift up Jesus and draw people to Him as Lord and Savior. The Ministry was established for the purpose of proclaiming the soon return of Jesus. We do not believe it is possible to know the date when Jesus will return. But we do believe it is possible to know the season of the Lord’s return, and it is our conviction that we are living in that season.
