Bible Prophecy vs. History (Daniel 11:1-19)

Bible Prophecy – The Book of Daniel 11 The Book of Daniel is a stunning example of Bible prophecy. The book claims to have been written sometime in the 6th century BC, but because of the accuracy of its detailed predictions, Daniel’s critics insist that it must have been written after the events described. They contend that it must have been written sometime after c.160 BC. Nevertheless, Flavius Josephus, court historian for three successive Roman Emperors, documents Alexander the Great receiving a copy of Daniel upon his annexation of Jerusalem in the autumn of 332 BC (Antiquities of the Jews XI, chapter viii, paragraphs 3-5). Furthermore, according to both the pseudo-aristeas account and Josephus (Antiquities of the Jews XII, chapter ii), Ptolemy Philadelphus (308-246 BC) commissioned the translation of the Septuagint (aka the LXX) from Hebrew into Greek in the 3rd century BC. Daniel is included in the LXX. Daniel is also included among the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) which date from about 200 BC (the oldest Daniel manuscript, 4Q114, dating from the late 2nd Century BC). In this video I go through the first 20 verses of Daniel 11. Each passage is followed by and compared with accepted secular history. The book of Daniel describes with incredible accuracy the fate of the Grecian Empire; how upon Alexander’s death his empire would be divided into four portions, the conflicts between two of these divisions, Egypt and Syria, and the affect which these wars would have upon the …

Prosperity…Is It Biblical? : Benny Hinn

Prosperity…Is It Biblical? The term “prosperity teaching” or “prosperity Gospel” is one of the most misunderstood and misused terms in today’s language. I believe biblical prosperity is scriptural, and it is taught throughout the Bible. Giving to the Lord is so important that God has promised that those who give for the work of the Gospel will be blessed and protected. Today I want to share...

Going Through on Dry Land

In Exodus 14 we read the story of how the people of Israel were in a very precarious position. They had fled their life of slavery in Egypt, led by the great prophet, Moses. God was showing Moses the way via a pillar of cloud by day and fire by night. There was a much shorter route that could have been taken, so why had they...

From Guilt of Humanity to the Righteousness of God

Romans 3:10-18 (NLT) As the Scriptures say, “No one is righteous-not even one. No one is truly wise; no one is seeking God. All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.” “Their talk is foul, like the stench from an open grave. Their tongues are filled with lies.” “Snake venom drips from their lips.” “Their mouths are full...

Did Christ Die for Us or for God?

Romans 3:25-26 God put [Christ] forward as a sacrifice of atonement by his blood, effective through faith. He did this to show his righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over the sins previously committed; it was to prove at the present time that he himself is righteous and that he justifies the one who has faith in Jesus. Introduction One of the reasons...

Self-indulgent worship

Zechariah 7:4-6 (The Message) God-of-the-Angel-Armies gave me this Message for them, for all the people and for the priests: “When you held days of fasting every fifth and seventh month all these seventy years, were you doing it for me? And when you held feasts, was that for me? Hardly. You’re interested in religion, I’m interested in people. I have often heard (and probably often remarked)...

Addicted to Praising God

There are many addictions that destroy men souls. These are the bad habits that can not be control. When one’s life isn’t completely surrendered to Jesus, sin has a stronghold. It may be hidden now but will be revealed when negative behavior unfolds. The fruit of the lips tells what is in a man’s heart. When he doesn’t speak God’s word, his faith will depart. If...
