DANIEL THE MAN – LESSON 5
NEBUCHADNEZZAR’S DILEMMA
 
We now come to chapter two of the Book of Daniel. The young men had completed their three years of training and gained Nebuchadnezzar’s favor upon examination. We now see what happens as the King has a mysterious dream that troubled him.
 
Verse 1 says Nebuchadnezzar had this dream in his second year of reign, although Daniel was at least now four years in Babylon. How do we reconcile that; we look at history.
 
Nabopolassar had conquered Assyria in 612 B.C. and established the Babylonian empire. There were no more adversaries to conquer, so he turned the reigns of the military to his son Nebuchadnezzar who then took to expanding the empire by defeating smaller non-adversarial nations like Judah and others from 607 to 605 B.C. as he jointly ruled as the “new” king along side his father. When Nabopolassar died at some later date after 605 B.C. Nebuchadnezzar then became sole ruler of Babylon, most likely around 600-601 B.C.
 
It was in Nebuchadnezzar’s second year of rule following his father’s passing when this dream took place. Henry H. Halley (Halley’s Bible Handbook pg. 342) says, “This was in the 2nd year of Nebuchadnezzar’s reign as sole ruler.”
 
Such “joint rule” of father and son was not unheard of. King David also anointed Solomon as King even as David still was king. This was to ensure an orderly succession. We read of it in I Kings Chapters 1 and 2. 
 
I touch on this for the simple reason that some might point to “the second year” as an error in scripture. It is not.
 
Now that Nebuchadnezzar was the sole ruler, God gave him a dream that profoundly impacted him in such a way that sleep was taken from him. He called all the wise men of his father (2:2) the magicians, astrologers, sorcerers, all the Chaldeans. He demanded that they show the king the dream and its interpretation. They asked him to tell them the dream, then they would give him the meaning of it. This is what they were known for, and why Nabopolassar had them in his court.
 
Nebuchadnezzar told them that he could not remember the dream. They continued to insist that he describe the dream to them. Verses 8-9 show that the King did not trust his father’s wise men. He accused them that they would “make up” an interpretation just to “save their skins” or to “gain” credibility by lying and corrupt “interpretations.” He was letting them know that if they were truly gifted in dreams then they would also know the dream itself.
 
They answered him in verse 10, “there is not a man upon earth that can show the kings matter” and again in verse 11, “there is none other that can show it…except the gods whose dwelling is not with flesh (of any man).” It is important here to note their claim that only a god could tell him what he had dreamed. This made the King very furious to the point that he ordered the captain of the King’s guard to round up all the wise men (the “pretenders”) and execute all of them.
 
Now enters Daniel’s role which we will examine tomorrow.

SPIRIT OF DECEPTION
 
I have heard people say, “How can people be so blind to be so easily led astray”? That certainly is a question that many are asking with Covid19, masks, vaccinations, shutdowns, quarantines, deaths and so much more that has happened in the last 14 months.
 
Could there be a spirit behind this? The answer is yes. While I was mediating on the scriptures Saturday, the Holy Spirit told me that the spirit behind deception is the spirit of python. Perhaps you have heard of it and perhaps you have not.
 
It comes from the scriptures in Acts chapter 16 where Paul is followed about by a “soothsayer” or fortune teller. This woman was possessed with a spirit of divination. It troubled Paul constantly and finally he commanded it to come out of the woman. Divination comes from the Greek Word Puthon which means “python.” This snake is very subtle. It doesn’t bite its victims; it wraps itself around them and then squeezes them to death. This spirit is prevalent throughout the world at this time deceiving people. It works with other spirits also, like the spirit of Jezebel.   It blinds the eyes to those it attacks and has one purpose and that is to destroy and kill its victim.
 
On Sunday I preached a message on this spirit. I feel that it is extremely important that everyone understands it and how to deal with it. We don’t want you to be ignorant of what is happening. Here are some of the symptoms of this spirit:
 
Money dried up
Depression
Fatigue
Spiritual Dullness
Ministry failure
Constant sickness
 
I would like to offer the DVD to you for any donation. You can give a dollar, or you can give more.  As soon as you make a donation, I will mail it to you. Simply click here to donate and receive your DVD. There is no charge for mailing (continental U.S. only).

FEBRUARY 20, 2021
PROPHETIC EXHORTATION
 
In early January of this year the Lord spoke to me and said there would be many suddenlies. There would be sudden deaths, sudden changes in your life, sudden moves, and more. We need to brace ourselves for this. It is already happening to many of us. Friends died suddenly that caught “Covid19” and didn’t make it.
 
I also see that there will be suddenlies in the spirit realm. There will be sudden promotions of those that never saw themselves in ministry. There will be sudden relationship changes of those that had not considered a relationship with someone else or will break off unhealthy relationships suddenly.
 
There will be suddenlies in the political realm my friends like you have never seen before. They will not all be for the good. Brace yourself.
 
There will be sudden persecution of Christians like never before. Brace yourself.
 
There will be suddenlies, and we need to be prepared for them. In January of 2020 God gave a word of separation and preparation. Some heeded the word, while others did not. We separate ourselves from sin and those that lead us astray. We separate ourselves unto God and spend time with Him praying and seeking His face. 
 
We prepare ourselves for what is coming. If we are living in the last days, which I believe we are, we need to prepare others for eternity. Prepare in the natural for hard days ahead and prepare in the spiritual to be fully armed in the armor of God daily.
 
Now is not the time to sit back and be idle. It is the time to rise up and be what God has called you to be and do what He has called you to do. Don’t be in the list that said, “I wish I had.” Be a doer of the word and not just a hearer only. 
 
Be prepared for suddenlies!

PROPHETIC EXHORTATION
3-15-2021

Someone is needing to know that the very things that were sent your way to mislead, misdirect, manipulate and even contaminate you...Are now being set to boomerang back onto the sender. Those who were foolish enough to think they could get by with trying to mess you up; By raising up against you are about to have a great big surprise. For their payback is on its way and their big cover up is soon to be uncovered. It’s then that they’ll be exposed, embarrassed and then ultimately eliminated from your life. Yes, they are going to be stopped; As they’re about to get a big over dose of their own medicine. Meanwhile, God is at work in you, refueling you, refreshing you and restoring you. Oh yes, payday and payback are coming your way; And you’re getting double for your trouble as you’ll regain more than you lost in the unfair and unsolicited battle that you’ve been in. Sure it’s been a battle that you did not ask for; But it’s a battle you won’t have to finish fighting alone. So fear not because God's got this and His angelic host are even now beginning to surround you...Keeping you and preparing you for the harvest that’s just ahead of you. So don’t you give in and don’t you dare give up...Because payback and payday have already been dispatched your way.
PROPHETIC WORD
This is a prophetic word given by Kenneth E. Hagin about the future of the United States.
