THE BOOK OF DANIEL

CHAPTER 10


WHAT ARE SPIRITUAL MATTERS
SPIRITUAL EVENTS EXPLAINED

Glad to have you here for this truly interesting Chapter of Daniel. In this chapter, you'll learn that, even though we often forget that there is a spiritual realm that exists all around us, God is always orchestrating things to fulfill His prophesy.

This story takes place a couple of years after this happened:

2 Chronicles 36:22-23
Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying, Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the Earth hath the LORD God of Heaven given me; and He hath charged me to build Him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The LORD his God be with him, and let him go up.

So, we know that the captivity in Babylon has ended, however Jerusalem is still under Persian rule.

Daniel, at this particular time, was fasting for three entire weeks. Why do people fast? Well, whereas eating is a way to nourish your flesh, fasting is a way to nourish your soul. By eating, your body gains strength to carry out the tasks that you need to do. Your soul however is different than the flesh. How do you gain strength for your soul? We all want to be strong in the Lord, so in order to allow HIS strength to work through us, we have to humble ourselves. We have to CHOOSE to surrender our desires as to allow HIS will to work through us. One way to do that is by fasting. By depriving the flesh of what it craves, it brings you into a closer spiritual connection and dependence on God.

As Daniel stood by the Tigris river, he looked up and had a vision. Here is Daniel's description of the vision he saw:

Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and His face as the appearance of lightning, and His eyes as lamps of fire, and His arms and His feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of His words like the voice of a multitude.

The men that were with Daniel didn't see what he saw, but they suddenly became terrified and ran to hide. So Daniel was left by himself and saw this amazing vision, which was so fantastic that it took away all his strength. At the sound of His voice, Daniel fell into a deep sleep on the ground with his face down.





SPIRITUAL MATTERS AND VISIONS
SPIRITUAL EVENTS AND DREAMS

Who do you think this vision was of? Do you suppose it was the Word of God ... Or in other words, do you think that if you were Daniel, and you saw the vision that was just described, that there would be no doubt in your mind that this vision was from God? And would there be any doubt in your mind that whatever you saw next was not just a silly old dream, but a divine message?

The next thing Daniel knew, an Angel set him up on his hands and knees and said, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. So Daniel stood up, trembling. The Angel continued, Don't be afraid, Daniel, because from the first day you desired to understand and humbled yourself before God, your prayer was heard, and I have come to help you understand.

Now we get a little glimpse of the spiritual realm that we talked about earlier as this Angel tells Daniel what happened on his way to Daniel. The Angel said that the prince of the kingdom of Persia opposed him for twenty one days, but the Archangel Michael came to help him.

If the details of history interest you, the king of Persia at that time was Cyrus. The prince of the kingdom, who this Angel was speaking of and heir to the throne, was the son of Cyrus, whose name was Cambyses. He had no interest in the Jewish people rebuilding Jerusalem as his father desired. The Angel was just giving Daniel a little idea of what was going on behind the scenes ... In the spiritual realm. Of course, only the Lord knows exactly what was meant when the Angel said that the prince of Persia "opposed" him, we only know that there was a spiritual matters concerning Cambyses while he was on his way to deliver his message to Daniel.

The Angel continues with the Spiritual matters at hand, saying, Now, I'm here to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days (the End Times), but this vision will not come to pass for a long time.


SPIRITUAL MATTERS AND ANGELS
STRANGE SPIRITUAL EVENTS

Daniel looked down and became dumb (silent), then another Angel touched his lips, and he could once again speak. Daniel said to the Angel, The vision took away my strength and left me speechless. Then another Angel came and strengthened Daniel and said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong.

Think back for a moment to the days of Abraham. Remember when the Lord appeared to him with the two Angels?

Genesis 18:1-3
And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground, And said, My LORD, if now I have found favor in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant ...

Now, remember the vision of the Lord that Daniel had before these two Angels appeared to him. Why two Angels? Because, as Jesus said:

Matthew 18:16
... then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

Now, back to the story ... When the Angel told Daniel to be strong, immediately, Daniel gained strength and asked the Angel to reveal the meaning of the vision to him. The Angel said, Do you know why I'm here? Now I will return to fight with the prince of Persia, and then the prince of Greece will come, but I will show you the prophecy, and nobody but Michael is assigned to work with me.

Is this vision and prophecy starting to sound familiar ... Persia, Greece? Ding ding! It's a vision concerning the very same thing as the vision Daniel had in Chapter 8. In the next chapter, the Angel gives Daniel even more details about what is to befall his people, so be sure to join in again for more of this interesting prophecy as we continue our Old Testament study of the book of Daniel.

This Spiritual Matters and Spiritual Events Bible study reveals that Visions and dreams require one to be "In the Spirit" to be able to discern Spiritual matters and Spiritual events that occur.
