Tuesday: Daniel 2 and the Providence of God in History — 2 Comments

  1. The first three kingdoms of Daniel 2 are identified in Daniel (once you accept that the prophecies are repeats of the same outline). The fourth kingdom can be confirmed by the New Testament. But when we come to the break up of Rome, we have no biblical guidance. It seems strange to me, that our interpretation only focuses on 1/3 of the Roman empire. It is always described as the nations of Europe (although the lesson author avoided that language today). What about Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and all the nations of north Africa? These were all a part of the Roman empire. Are we simply guilty of ethnocentrism or am I missing something?

  2. Great lesson, what especially hit me is God's alll knowing power, and that power translates to us in a huge way , now that we can see the prophecy almost fulfilled. What an encouragement to me; i can trust Him with my all. I also love the statement "love that is forced cannot be love. " Would that this would be tattooed on every Christian's heart, it would stop so much suffering, war, and misunderstanding in all His children. Some i witness to bear scars of misguided souls who tried to force their way of life on them in the name of God. Two especially i can think of who are native american and were abused (and a generation or two before them) by being humiliated and degraded to the point one gets physically sick thinking about Christianity. The abusers weren't Adventists, but claimed to serve God as Catholics. I know a lot of damage has been done in the name of Christ, and they were actually counterfeits. Please pray for Angela and Sand that they have an encounter with the true God who loves them. These are older women, Angela is suffering with multiple cancers, i don't know how much time she has left. Thank you for your time, God bless you all.

    Amen!(0)
