If I Were Told the Future - Lesson 20

Parallels Between Daniel’s Prophecies

Picture 1 If I Were Told the Future Lesson 20
Parallels Between Daniel’s Prophecies
Screen 1
Let’s pray together:
O Lord God,

Now that we have a better understanding of the prophetic book of Daniel, we humbly ask You to help us to grasp the rich parallels we can draw between the prophecies of this book.

In Jesus Christ our Savior we pray.

Amen.

Parallels Between Daniel’s Prophecies
Screen 2
Daniel 12:9,10 Comments
Go your way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly.

And none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
Sealed for centuries, the book of Daniel now reveals its secrets to us who live in «the time of the end».

We are invited not to imitate the wicked, who will not be able to understand the prophecy, but rather to be wise, to have the intelligence to seek the Scriptures.

Daniel 8:1 Comments
In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a vision appeared to me, even to me Daniel, after that which appeared to me at the first. A careful reading of the book of Daniel reveals that there are close links between the prophecies of this book.

Let’s try to find those links, those parallels between the prophecies we have studied in our last four lessons.
Daniel 10:14
Now I am come to make you understand what shall befall your people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.

Daniel 12:3,4 Comments
They that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

But you, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
We indeed live in the last days: the book of Daniel is therefore no longer sealed for those who take the time to study it.

Now it is up to us to share the treasures we find in it with the people around us.

Let’s pray:
Our Father,

The study of some of the prophecies of the book of Daniel has been a rich source of blessings for each one of us.

May this study lead us to entrust our life to Your care, You who see the future as clearly as the past.

Please show us which choices we need to make today, so that our future may not hold for us bad surprises that would bring about ill-fated and eternal consequences.

We thank You for Your continuous presence. In Jesus Christ we pray.

Amen.
