Daniel, a young Jewish man taken by the Babylonians as they overrun Jerusalem, is brought to Babylon to serve the great King Nebuchadnezzar. Once there, Daniel begins an incredible journey as he becomes ruler over the province of Babylon, receives visits from archangels, and ultimately, stands in the presence of God. This is all brought about because Daniel chooses to worship God, and because of this, God blesses Daniel with incredible wisdom and insight to interpret qvisions and dreams of all kinds.q On two occasions Daniel and his friends are faced with the command to worship false gods or be killed. But, in some of the most miraculous events of the entire Bible, God intervenes and keeps them from sure death.Because of the blessing from God, Daniel is able to interpret King Nebuchadnezzar's troubling dream about the future of four powerful kingdoms from the time of King Nebuchadnezzar right up until the time of Jesus Christ's return when God's everlasting kingdom will finally be ushered in. God reveals three powerful kingdoms that will succeed Babylon and carry on their traditions of religion and worship. As you read this book you'll be surprised to learn what kingdom we're now in, how the Babylonian religious system is all around us, and what God says is in store in the future for the nations.Just as in the time of Daniel, those who make the choice to worship the true God today will be blessed with understanding during this turbulent time at the end of the age.Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.a And so when everyone heard those musical instruments play a all the peoples, nations and men of every language fell down and worshiped the image of gold that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. ... Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused to bow down to the kinga#39;s image of gold. ... But Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego knew God, knew how to worship Him, and knew He hated idolatry.
