Sweet Sunday Sermon – Christ in the Book of Daniel

Submitted by Doc GP

CHRIST IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL

The prophecy of Daniel is one of the most important books in the entire Word of God, because it marks out the exact course the nations of the world will take. It tells how the kingdoms of this earth shall become the kingdom of our Lord and His Christ (see Revelation 11:15).

It is important also because the Savior referred to this book when He spoke of the signs of His return to earth.

The Lord Jesus quoted from this book of Daniel (Mat 24:14,15,30Luke 21:24-27Mat 26:63,64). He used the prophecy of Daniel, about the coming of the Son of man in clouds of heaven, as proof of His messiahship and deity.

STONE CUT WITHOUT HANDS (Daniel 2:34-35, 44)

We cannot consider the prophetic Scriptures without coming eventually to the One who is the Spirit of prophecy, the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Smiting Stone of Daniel 2:44,45. The Stone ”cut out of the mountain without hands”  i.e the stone is cut without human help This depicts Jesus Christ and His glorious appearing (v.45). His return will spell the destruction of Gentile dominion, and He will be exalted to world rulership.

God’s Son is the One who shall come to destroy Gentile dominion. It is He whose kingdom ”shall stand forever.” His messianic rule is a sovereign supernatural power (Cf. Dan. 4:3; Jn. 18:36; Lk. 1:33; Ps. 2:9;

Son of GodChap 3-

When Nebuchadnezzar looked into the fiery furnace and said, ”Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” ” (Daniel 3:25). Although Nebuchadnezzar did not know of whom he spoke,  this is no doubt was a theophany, a pre-incarnate appearance of the Lord Jesus.
According to His promise (Isa 43:2), the Lord was with them in the fire, ”and the form of the fourth was like the Son of God.” and He is still with His own when they pass through the fire, and many a saint has proved since then, as they did, that the only effect of the fire is to burn the bonds.

SON OF MAN (Daniel 7:13-14)

The term identifies Christ with humanity, lowliness, humility, patience, suffering and triumphant victory. Jesus used this title as a substitute for the pronoun “I” (Lk. 9:58; Matt. 11:19; 16:13; Mk. 8:27);

when speaking of His future glory (Matt. 19:28; 24:30; Mk. 13:26; Lk. 17:26, 30); His coming again (Matt. 24-25; Mk. 13; Lk. 17; Matt. 26:64);

When the High Priest said to our Lord, ”I adjure Thee by the living God, that Thou tell me whether Thou be the Christ, the Son of God,” Jesus saith unto him, ”Thou hast said: nevertheless, I say unto thee, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.” Then the High Priest rent his clothes, saying, ”He hath spoken blasphemy.” Our Lord applied these words of Daniel to Himself, and the High Priest immediately recognized in them His claim to deity. [Mat 26:63-65]

His coming judgment (Matt. 13:41; 25:31, 32; Lk. 21:36l);

His suffering, death and resurrection (Matt. 17:12, 22; 16:21; 26:2, 24; Lk. 9:44; 18:31, 32;22:22, 48), etc.

What a majestic scene in Dan 7:9-14 ! With the close of the vision of the four beasts, we have a further revelation of Christ in Daniel. The Ancient of days, God the Father, is seated upon His throne sitting there in judgment.

The time setting is immediately before the return of Christ to establish His kingdom. We read, ”I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days… and everlasting dominion and glory given to Him ” (Dan 7:13). The verses that follow are paralleled by the description of Christ in Revelation 5:1-7. ”And there was given Him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages should serve Him; His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed” (Dan 7:14,15).

This scene also depicts in act what was said in words in David’s Psalm, which Jesus quoted as written of Himself, ”The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit Thou on My right hand until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool” [Psa 110].

SAVIOUR  CHAPTER 9 – SEVENTY WEEKS & THE MESSIAH (Daniel 9:24-27)

Like a thread of gold, the assurance of the ultimate triumph of our Lord runs through the prophecy of Daniel. Indeed, He is Lord of lords, and King of kings.
Daniel 9 foretells the death of Messiah, the Prince.
Verses 24-27 refer plainly to the manifestation of Jesus Christ to fulfil all righteousness and to make full atonement for the sins of His people (compare 1John 3:8 and 2Cor 5:19).

”The language of the prophecy is clear: ‘From the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto Messiah the Prince, shall be seven weeks and threescore and two weeks.’ ”And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for Himself.” [Dan 9:26].

The Messiah, the Prince, would be ”cut off” 434 years (62 x 7) after the rebuilding of Jerusalem. This was fulfilled when Christ was crucified. .-After the 483 years were over, Messiah was cut off.

The seventy weeks began with the edict of Artaxerxes to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, in the Jewish month Nisan of the year 445 B.C. [Neh 2:1-8]. ” Sir Robert Anderson, with the assistance of astronomical calculations supplied by the Astronomer-Royal, Sir G. B. Airy, has calculated that this interval (seventy times sixty-nine prophetic years of 360 days) brings us to the very day of Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem, the climax of His ministry, when the prophecy of Zechariah was fulfilled, ”Behold thy King cometh unto thee” [Zech 9:9], and the day of Zion’s irrevocable choice. The correct translation of our Lord’s words is: ”If thou hadst known, even on this day, the things that belong unto thy peace, but now they are hid from thine eyes” [Luke 19:42].

The prophetic clock stopped. The death of Christ broke the chain for the weeks; for that event sundered the relation then existing between God and the chosen people.

God’s dealings today do not center fully upon Israel; rather, He is taking out of the Gentiles ”a people for His name” (Acts 15:14).

Messiah comes from a Hebrew word meaning “to smear, to anoint, to spread a liquid.” Prophets, priests and kings were “anointed,” smeared with oil of anointing. Jesus is the Anointed of the Lord, or Messiah. He is the agent of God through whom Israel’s destiny was fulfilled (Lk. 4:16-21; 23:35; 24:26-27, 46).

”The Time of the End.”Daniel Chapters 11 and 12 point to the ”Time of the end,”2The 2Rev 19), prophesy of predicts the mighty scenes and events of the Great Tribulation – a time of unparalleled trouble and Our Lord speaks of the same (Mat 24:21). They severally declare that the great adversary will be destroyed by the coming of Jesus Christ Himself. Our Lord’s own testimony is identical with theirs (Mat 24 and 25Mark 13 and Luke 21). Our Lord quotes the words of Daniel about the daily sacrifice being taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate being set up.

Here the resurrection of the dead is more plainly foretold than anywhere else in the Old Testament: ”Many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.” The future joy of those that turn many to righteousness is revealed.

    What you have written here is well said.

    Sometimes, when a person does not comment, the Speaker my believe that the listeners did not hear.

    But some speeches are profound and cant be added to nor subtracted from.

    What you have said is very true Sir
    I would rather have no one post than for jokers to post nonsense.
    This short article was prepared for our breaking of bread or communion meeting, at which the focus is the words , the work or the worth of Christ. Cant remember if I ever share this
    Throughout such meetings the brethren will rise to give a short talk on some aspect about the Lord No one will attack you the man, but often no one is able to respond, mainly because the men are lazy and dont study.But in a good meeting, one is very delighted with the quality of response, when another brother gives a stellar response Off course sometimes you get to share a response to a good word, extemporaneously ,

  • You bible theorist and interpreters of the Word just ought to leave the old prophets words alone and remove the incestuous fascination of word scrambling from your mind by simply underscoring and teaching what Jesus said in his breakdown of the ten commandments and his less than impressed belief in traditions
    Love God with all your heart and your fellow people as yourself
    My do bible thumpers always make such big issues out of prophecies when Jesus (if )you all agree said that He is the resurrection of life and death and no one comes to the father expect by Him
    Therefore believer can’t we all follow the principles of Christ as the best way forward in building the kingdom and let the words of the prophets remained chiseled in their rightful place nestled within the bosom of the bible untouched holy sanctified and unblemished
    As the old adage teaches ” too many cooks spoil the broth”
    The same is true for bible thumpers and the holier than thou knowing it all

    Luke 24:25-27 says
    Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

    Seems that Jesus would have us search the all the scriptures including the prophets in order to learn about him.

  • Everyone Sees the Explanation of things as being Outside of him or herself and THEY DO NOT SEE THAT IT IS FIRST SPIRITUAL AND THEN IT IS PHYSICAL. So in order to understand the Book of Daniel and the Image presented ONE MUST FIRST SEE IT SPIRITUALLY.

    The Head of Gold that was the Persian Empire Represented the Best that man could do. They were many Rights given to the people that lived under the Persian Empire and the people lived Free. The Governors of Regions acted as Vassal’s for the king had Enormous Power and that System was represented as the Golden head.

    The Alters were made of Unhewn Stone like how Jacob Built the Alters to Worship God, that Represented something that is Not Manufactured by man but Wrought by God. He was the Creator of Every Stone we See and we are to Worship on that Alter (that which is Created by God as we are).

    IT IS HIS SPIRIT GIVEN TO MAN THAT IS THE UNCUT STONE THAT IS THE ALTER WE WORSHIP ON!

    As for the Feet of Iron and Clay and the Smaller Kingdom of Toes (AKA Barbados) and each of the Kingdoms of Iron and Clay thinking they are Strong have NOT FOLLOWED AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS!

    The Stone that was cut out of the Mountain Without Hands Represents the Word of God a Portion of the Spirit of Christ that in these Latter Days WILL SHATTER THE BELIEF SYSTEMS THAT ARE MAN MADE. Since this Stone is Given to Every Man it will be this Stone (Rock) that will Teach every man the Value of Following the Spirit and Following Freedom,

    “I am the Lord thy God that Brought you out of the land of Egypt out of the House of Bondage Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

    Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

    Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;” Exodus 20:2-5

    In a Spiritual Sense this is the Stone (Word) that Guides us. This is the Stone that will Destroy the Belief System of men. This Stone will lead us to what comes next. We should make this Stone the Alters that we Worship on.

    I have read one or two of the above.

    The thing about some of these books is the synchronicity of content.

    At various times when the decision was being made to compile the final Holy Bible, literature which also spoke of the Christ was evaluated and, because of its content, was not included in the final Word.

    “Seek ye Diligently the Kingdom of Heaven” speaks in no small part to how, once one constantly reads and pursues God in the verses in the Holy Bible such is enough for our Salvation

    Can’t you see not even the doctor of human ailments and divine interventions the Almighty Georgie Porgie can give a ‘valid’ reason why Yahweh’s words were censured and some thrown into the cesspit of literary oblivion.

    All that can be said- with some measure of historical validity- that a group of ‘gay’ men calling themselves bishops got together at a convention called the Council of Nicaea and made pronouncements on what was and what wasn’t God’s Word(s).

    The pagan Constantine made sure nothing in those old books of Jewish concocted myths and legend which reflected the downright rebellious nature of Jews or could suggest that or portray sweet loving Jesus to be more a pagan than a Jew were to be included in that completely final book of censorship.

    After all, the worship of the Father who art in heaven (Sol Invictus) is reserved for Roman Catholics as determined by Constantine’s sign in the sky: Chi-Rho!

  • First Council of Nicaea, (325), the first ecumenical council of the Christian church, meeting in ancient Nicaea (now İznik, Turkey). It was called by the emperor Constantine I, an unbaptized catechumen, who presided over the opening session and took part in the discussions. He hoped a general council of the church would solve the problem created in the Eastern church by Arianism, a heresy first proposed by Arius of Alexandria that affirmed that Christ is not divine but a created being. Pope Sylvester I did not attend the council but was represented by legates.

    The council condemned Arius and, with reluctance on the part of some, incorporated the nonscriptural word homoousios (“of one substance”) into a creed to signify the absolute equality of the Son with the Father. The emperor then exiled Arius, an act that, while manifesting a solidarity of church and state, underscored the importance of secular patronage in ecclesiastical affairs.

    13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

    14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

    15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

    16 And Simon Peter answered and said, THOU ART THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD.

    17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: FOR FLESH AND BLOOD HATH NOT REVEALED IT UNTO THEE, BUT MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.

    18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and UPON THIS ROCK I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

    HIS CHURCH IS BUILT ON A TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST THAT IS THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY AND REVELATION.

    10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren THAT HAVE THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS: WORSHIP GOD: FOR THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS IS THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. Revelation 19:10

    IT IS RATHER UNFORTUNATE THAT A MAN WITH SUCH KNOWLEDGE HAS NOT GAINED THE UNDERSTANDING THAT WE ARE TAUGHT BY THE SPIRIT OF JESUS CHRIST (THE SPIRIT OF REVELATION AND PROPHESY) THAT BRINGS ENLIGHTENMENT!

    ARE BOOKS OF SCRIPTURE MISSING FROM THE BIBLE?

    The so-called lost books of the Bible are those documents that are mentioned in the Bible in such a way that it is evident they were considered authentic and valuable, but that are not found in the Bible today. Sometimes called missing scripture, they consist of at least the following:

    Book of the Wars of the Lord Numbers 21:14
    Book of Jasher Joshua 10:13; 2 Samuel 1:18
    Book of the acts of Solomon 1 Kings 11:41
    Book of Samuel the seer 1 Chronicles 29:29
    Book of Gad the seer 1 Chronicles 29:29
    Book of Nathan the prophet 1 Chronicles 29:29; 2 Chronicles 9:29
    Prophecy of Ahijah 2 Chronicles 9:29
    Visions of Iddo the Seer 2 Chronicles 9:29; 12:15; 13:22
    Book of Shemaiah 2 Chronicles 12:15
    Book of Jehu 2 Chronicles 20:34
    Sayings of the Seers 2 Chronicles 33:19
    An epistle of Paul to the Corinthians, earlier than our present 1 Corinthians 1 Corinthians 5:9
    An earlier epistle to the Ephesians Ephesians 3:3
    Epistle to the Laodiceans Colosians 4:16
    Prophecies of Enoch, known to Jude Jude 1:14
    Book of the covenant Exodus 24:7 (may or may not be included in the current book of Exodus)
    The Manner of the Kingdom, written by Samuel 1 Samuel 10:25
    Acts of Uzziah, written by Isaiah 2 Chronicles 26:22
    The “Acts of Abijah…in the Story of the Prophet Iddo” 2 Chronicles 13:22 (seems to not be the same as the Prophecy of Ahijah or the Visions of Iddo)

    The foregoing items attest to the fact that our present Bible does not contain all of the word of the Lord that He gave to His people in former times, and remind us that the Bible, in its present form, is rather incomplete. Matthew’s reference to a prophecy that Jesus would be a Nazarene (2:23) is interesting when it is considered that our present Old Testament seems to have no such statement. There is a possibility, however, that Matthew alluded to Isaiah 11:1, which prophesies of the Messiah as a Branch from the root of Jesse, the father of David. The Hebrew word for branch in this case is netzer, the source word of Nazarene and Nazareth. Additional references to the Branch as the Savior and Messiah are found in Jeremiah 23:5; 33:15; Zechariah 3:8; 6:12; these use a synonymous Hebrew word for branch, tzemakh.

    Luke noted (Luke 1:1) that “many” had written about “those things which are most surely believed among us,” yet our Bible has only two earlier Gospels, those of Matthew and Mark (John having been written after Luke). The Bible doesn’t contain the earlier books to which Luke had reference. The books of 1-2 Kings frequently speak of the “rest of the acts” of the kings contained in the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah and the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel. Some readers undoubtedly believe that these refer to the books known as 1 and 2 Chronicles in our present Bibles. But an examination of the latter shows that they generally do not reveal any of the additional information about these kings that we expect to find there. Moreover, there is good evidence that the biblical books of Chronicles are really later reworkings of 2 Samuel and 1-2 Kings, with deletion of much more material than they add. Consequently, they cannot be the chronicles referred to in the earlier books.

    Another reference to a writing not found in the Bible is in 2 Chronicles 35:25, where we read that Jeremiah’s lamentation for the slain king Josiah is “written in the lamentations.” Many Bible readers have assumed that Josiah is the “anointed of the Lord…taken in their pits,” mentioned in Lamentations 4:20. There are two problems with this identification, however: 1) The book of Lamentations was written after the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 BC, two decades after the death of Josiah, and 2) The “anointed of the Lord” taken in the pit clearly refers to the last king of Judah, Zedekiah, who, at the time the Babylonians took Jerusalem, was caught “in their pit” and taken captive to Babylon (Ezekiel 19:8-9). In connection with the Nazarene prophecy, we might add that the scriptural quotes by Jesus found in Luke 11:49 and John 7:38 are not found in today’s Old Testament. Similar unsupported quotes are found in Ephesians 5:14 and James 4:5f, as well as in Acts 20:35, where Paul attributes to Jesus a saying found nowhere else in the Bible, including the Gospels.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Artax, we hope you are not taken aback by the response from the pseudo doctor of Divinity and Biblical tautology.

    The question of greatest pertinence (and which remains unanswered) is why do the Jews still refuse to accept the ‘messianic’ divinity of Jesus despite it being written in the Scriptures from being the ‘seed of a sinful woman’ in Genesis to being the Sun god of the end times in Malachi?

    The man is not only the BU version of the Houdini of intellectual escapology but is also the runt in the litter of eschatological lightweights.

    This is in keeping with the ‘pretend Christian’ man’s modus operandi when it comes to discussing so-called Biblical matters.

    He is no different to the stoic scribes and regimented Pharisees of Yeshua’s era.

    Can you imagine what the so-called teachings of Jesus via parables would look like today if the rebellious rabbi was never queried or confronted?

    Even the compendium of Aesop’s Fables would have the pride of place in every ‘Christian-minded’ household.

    The day Dr. GP and his nemesis the other GP No.2 can tell us the difference between the Greek and Roman myths and legends they were ‘taught’ at their British-styled ‘Grammar’ schools and those stories they were ‘taught’ in Sunday school about the Jewish versions of similar patriarchs, judges and kings then we will know that the Bajan taxpayers’ monies have not been totally wasted in the production of two black intellectual robots incapable of thinking for themselves to figure out the difference between Zeus and Yahweh and their sons Apollo and Jesus.

    THROUGH THE DEVIL’S WORK OF APOSTASY, MANY OF GOD’S PLAIN AND PRECIOUS TRUTHS HAVE BEEN TAKEN FROM THE BIBLE.

    THESE TRUTHS WERE LEFT OUT THROUGH CARELESSNESS OR REMOVED BY EVIL AND DESIGNING MEN WHO WERE ANXIOUS TO CHANGE THE BIBLICAL TEXT.

    AS A RESULT, THE BIBLE CAN SOMETIMES BE A STUMBLING BLOCK TO THE CHILDREN OF GOD. (This is the Reason we have so many differing Christian Religions when in fact there should only be One, His Church.)

    GOD’S PLAIN AND PRECIOUS TRUTHS went forth from the Jews in purity unto the Gentiles, according to the truth, which is in God. After they went forward by the hand of the twelve apostles of the Lamb, from the Jews unto the Gentiles, we see that CONSPIRING MEN that have taken away from the gospel of the Lamb many parts which are plain and most precious; and also many covenants of the Lord have they taken away. And all this have they done that they might pervert the right ways of the Lord, that they might blind the eyes and harden the hearts of the children of men.

    After these plain and precious things were taken away it went out unto all the nations of the Gentiles; and after it went forth unto all the nations of the Gentiles—because of the many plain and precious things which have been taken out of the book, which were plain unto the understanding of the children of men, according to the plainness which is in the Lamb of God—BECAUSE OF THESE THINGS WHICH ARE TAKEN AWAY OUT OF THE GOSPEL OF THE LAMB, AN EXCEEDINGLY GREAT MANY DO STUMBLE, YEA, INSOMUCH THAT SATAN HATH GREAT POWER OVER THEM…

    Although we are all aware that there are errors in the Bible due to faulty translations and ignorance on the part of translators; the hand of the Lord has been over this volume of scripture nevertheless, and it is remarkable that it has come down to us in the excellent condition in which we find it. The King James Version of the Bible because it is the best version translated by the power of man.

He first wanted to know, he had a belief, he acted and he learnt knowledge. It is time to see that everything we do is done by faith; that is how the world was constructed.

    STUPID MARIPOS-ESQUE RAMBLINGS

    If I were to stand in breaking of bread and introduce a few brief general comments on Daniel as those given above, I might expect a discussion such as I give below to ensue, rather than the rubbish that precedes this post.

    I would expect a brother to stand and extemporaneously cite Zechariah 3:9 and continue to give sound serious teaching such as I have given below

    Zechariah 3:9 For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.

    • Jesus is called “the Stone.” The Stone Engraved
    • He is predicted in Daniel 2:44-45 as the stone that the crushing stone that will destroy the statue made of various metals.
    • This foretells the Lord Jesus Christ rolling over the armies of the Gentiles at Armageddon at the end of the age and bringing God’s judgment to bring the times of the gentiles to and end
    • When Daniel explained Nebuchadnezzar’s dream to him, he said,
    • Dan. 2:34 “You continued looking until a stone was cut out without hands, and it struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay, and crushed them.
    Dan. 2:35 “…the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth. ”
    Again, this refers to the return of Christ, destroying the rebellious nations, and establishing His rule and reign upon the earth.
    • Jesus is the Stone that the builders rejected , Who will become the chief cornerstone (Ps. 118:22; Matt. 21:42; 1 Peter 2:5-7).
    • He is also a stone of stumbling for unbelieving Israel (Rom. 9:31-33). Cf. Psalm 118:22; Matt. 21:42; 1 Peter 2:5-6.
    • He is the Stone of stumbling for unbelieving Israel and the Rock of offense (Rom 9:32-33).
    • He is the Rock that poured forth water in the wilderness (1Cor. 10:4).
    The Stone is here described as having seven eyes – complete vision to see all that happens. Jesus is all-seeing, all-knowing. He knows our sins, yet desires to remove our iniquity from us. He said,
    Luke 20:18 “Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust.”
    We can choose to fall on Him – allowing our hearts to be broken by sin – or we can reject His call and the Rock will fall on us.
    • The seven eyes on one stone is probably the wisdom and intelligence of the Messiah or the Holy Spirit upon Him (Isa. 11:2; Rev. 5:6). The seven eyes indicate perfect insight and perfect knowledge and powers of the all-knowing omniscient King.
    • In Revelation 5:6 the seven eyes of the Lamb are the seven Spirits of God, and with the sevenfold eyes of Yahweh, they are the sevenfold radiations of the Spirit of Yahweh (Isa. 11:2)

    clearly all the references to Jesus the stone are given here

    If it were a Bible Reading , the group would then go on -usually to discuss in turn at the same session, and if not done continue in this vein at the next Bible Reading
    2 SON OF GOD (Daniel 3:25)
    3 SON OF MAN (Daniel 7:13-14)

  • There is a Huge Difference between the Spirit of the Law versus the Letter of the law…You are Well Versed in the Letter of the Law like the Pharisees and Sadducee’s. You are Detached from the Spirit that teaches the Spiritual Understandings of the Word… As Stated in Freedoms first comment pertaining to the Book of Daniel… Freedom Crier December 29, 2019 9:32 AM “Everyone Sees the Explanation of things as being Outside of him or herself and THEY DO NOT SEE THAT IT IS FIRST SPIRITUAL AND THEN IT IS PHYSICAL. So in order to understand the Book of Daniel and the Image presented ONE MUST FIRST SEE IT SPIRITUALLY.”

    The Sprit Will Teach All things that the eyes have not seen or the Ears Heard, or Perceived in the Heart, Even that which is NOT WRITTEN to Those who have been Spiritually Anointed and Born Again in His Image.

    1 Corinthians 2:6- 12

    “6Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, EVEN THE HIDDEN WISDOM, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9BUT AS IT IS WRITTEN, EYE HATH NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NEITHER HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN, THE THINGS WHICH GOD HATH PREPARED FOR THEM THAT LOVE HIM. 10But God HATH REVEALED THEM UNTO US BY HIS SPIRIT: FOR THE SPIRIT SEARCHETH ALL THINGS, YEA, THE DEEP THINGS OF GOD. 11For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”

    1 John 2:20 &27
    20” BUT YOU HAVE AN ANOINTING FROM THE HOLY ONE, AND ALL OF YOU KNOW THE TRUTH…

    27 AS FOR YOU, THE ANOINTING YOU RECEIVED FROM HIM REMAINS IN YOU, AND YOU DO NOT NEED ANYONE TO TEACH YOU. BUT AS HIS ANOINTING TEACHES YOU ABOUT ALL THINGS AND AS THAT ANOINTING IS REAL, NOT COUNTERFEIT—JUST AS IT HAS TAUGHT YOU, REMAIN IN HIM.”

    WISDOM IS A GIFT FROM GOD PRAY O RECEIVE IT!
