DARE TO BE A DANIEL ~ BIBLE VERSES
Daniel ~ Read the real-life story of this incredible Bible hero. Taken from his royal family when only a teenager, through integrity, he rose to the top of 3 different world empires. He personally witnessed amazing historial events, like the rise and fall of world empires, and wrote about them. He survived being thrown into a den of lions for his faith.

Triumphal Entry (Paper Gifts for Estefany) It was Sir Robert Anderson of Scotland Yard (1894) who unravelled the mystery of one of the most astonishing passages in the whole Bible. Hundreds of years before it happened, the prophet Daniel was given a precise, but cryptic mathematical statement as to when The Meshiach Nagid (The Messiah The King) would present Himself as King. And it was written down in ‘black and white’ nearly three centuries before Jesus Christ was born!
The Book of Daniel (Chuck Missler) The first six chapters are historical. In those chapters we read that Daniel is deported from Israel after the Babylonian conquest. He encounters King Nebuchadnezzar, correctly interprets his dream, and is promoted as a result. Then we see Daniel’s rivals trying to “undo” his three friends in the fiery furnace episode. Nebuchadnezzar, the king of the world at that time, writes chapter four of Daniel in which he recounts his lesson from God about pride. That makes Nebuchadnezzar the only Gentile writer in the Old Testament. Next, the fall of Babylon to Darius leads us into the Persian Empire…
Daniel (Chuck Missler) was given a precise mathematical formula about the arrival of the Messiah, centuries before He was born! The Book of Daniel is actually one of the most authenticated books of the Old Testament, historically and archaeologically… It is critical to realize that the Book of Daniel existed in documented form almost three centuries before Christ was born.
Nebuchadnezzar appointment confirmed (watchjerusalem) The Babylonian Chronicle tablet was discovered in an excavation in Babylon, first translated in 1956, and then purchased by the British Museum… It is a Babylonian document belonging to King Nebuchadnezzar and… describes the events from 605–594 BC, covering the 12-year period from the 21st year of Nabopolassar (605 BC, also the year in which Nebuchadnezzar ascended to the throne) through to the 11th year of Nebuchadnezzar’s reign (594 BC). This includes the fall of Jerusalem to Nebuchadnezzar in the first Babylonian invasion in 597 BC [when Daniel was taken into captivity to Babylon] and the victories of Nabopolassar—his father—with Nebuchadnezzar as the commander in chief, mentioned in 2 Kings 24. It confirms the existence of Nebuchadnezzar, describes his conquest of Judea and Jerusalem, and also confirms the Bible’s account that Nebuchadnezzar appointed his own king over Judah, Zedekiah (2 Chronicles 36:10).
The Cylinder of Nabonidus (watchJerusalem) now located inside the British Museum, talks about how Nabonidus, king of the Babylonian Empire, spent several of the years of his reign in northwest Arabia, leaving his son, Belshazzar, to rule in his place. Belshazzar is discussed in Daniel chapter 5. For many years leading up to the discovery of this cylinder, a lot of scholars didn’t believe that Belshazzar existed. The cylinder explains that while Nabonidus was off on his expeditions, his son was back home in Babylon, ruling in his stead… The Cyrus Cylinder, also in the British Museum, discusses King Cyrus of Persia’s conquest of Babylon in 539 B.C. [after the handwriting on the wall incident.]
Cyrus the Great (Chuck Missler) In 539 BC, Cyrus took Babylon without a struggle. According to the Greek historian, Herodotus, Cyrus diverted the course of the Euphrates River, making the river level drop and giving the invading forces the ability to enter into the city that night through the river bed. Nobody noticed them coming in [they were too busy partying, up until the handwriting on the wall incident] and the city gates that opened up onto the river were not closed; the Persians were able to just walk into town. Within a year, Cyrus declared that all the Jews captive in Babylon were free to return home to Jerusalem, as described in Ezra 1. These two events—the taking of Babylon the Great without a battle and the magnanimous freeing of the Jews soon after—are both remarkable historical events in themselves. What makes them even more notable is the fact that God told about them in Isaiah, appointing Cyrus by name 100 years before this son of Cambyses was born.
Three things historians said didn’t exist… until they did (watchJerusalem) The biblical character King Belshazzar is described in the book of Daniel (chapter 5) as the last king of Babylon, killed when the city fell to the Persian Empire. Historians insisted this “Belshazzar” never existed. The Bible was the only known document to mention him. Every historian worth his salt knew that King Nabonidus was the final king of Babylon and that he was not killed, but rather taken prisoner… In 1854, British Consul John Taylor was excavating an ancient ziggurat, or temple, located in the area of ancient Ur, an area ruled by Babylon, in what is now Iraq. There, he discovered what became known as the Nabonidus Cylinders. On these cylindrical clay documents, King Nabonidus recorded the history of the ziggurat…
Nebuchadnezzar (skywatchtv) For more than two decades after the fall of Jerusalem, Nebuchadnezzar reigned over the colossal Babylonian Empire. His architects raised the capital city of Babylon to the height of its grandeur… Nebuchadnezzar immortalized his efforts on a stele—a stone slab… he specifically claims reconstruction of the Tower of Babylon… Cyrus, King of Persia, conquered the city without a battle in 539 BC… Babylon then became part of the Persian Empire… in 331 BC, Babylon was conquered by Alexander the Great, who began to rebuild the venerated but decaying city… But the construction was abandoned after Alexander’s untimely death… By the New Testament era, the Chaldean capital was no more than a famous heap of ruins…
Evidence of Babylonian Destruction of Jerusalem (Israel Antiquities Authority) Evidence of the destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of the Babylonians is currently being unearthed in the City of David in excavations conducted by the Israel Antiquities Authority at the Jerusalem Walls National Park… dwelling places 2,500 years old, once covered by a rockslide, have been revealed. Nestled within the rockslide many findings have surfaced: charred wood, grape seeds, pottery, fish scales and bones, and unique, rare artifacts. These findings depict the affluence and character of Jerusalem, capital of the Judean Kingdom, and are mesmerizing proof of the city’s demise at the hands of the Babylonians.
Become a Worshipper in the Lions’ Den (Godisreal) A major key for you to overcome the destructive influence of hell in your life, is knowing who you are and who’s on your side. One of the tricks of the enemy is to lie to you about your identity. He speaks into your spirit with lies about God and yourself… Your feelings and faith have zero influence on God’s love for you. Nothing you do changes His love for you. He loved you way before you ever made a choice to love Him back. It’s HIS love that has been waging war for you, to draw you to Him… Worship opens the door to Heaven. Become a worshipper in the lion’s den, just like Daniel… become an amazing warrior of heaven…
The Tomb of Daniel take a two minute holiday to Iran, formerly known as Persia, and see the ornate tomb in Susa of the Biblical prophet, Daniel. He was obviously regarded as someone very important.
