DANIEL THE PROPHET – LESSON 1
HIS PROPHETIC DREAMS OF THE FUTURE
 
We will now shift our attention from the history of Daniel the man to Daniel the Prophet.
 
It is noteworthy that the book is written in two different languages. Nearly all the Old Testament is written in Hebrew, including the start of the book of Daniel from chapters 1:1 to chapters 2:3. The language changes to “Syriack” in Daniel 2:4 and continues through 7:28. It then returns to Hebrew in 8:1 to the end of the book. There is a reason for that.
 
The “Syriack” is what we know as Aramaic which was the commonly spoken language of Babylon and widely known among the Hebrews as well. It was needed here because the messages and dreams were meant to be understood and distributed worldwide to call attention to “the most high God” of Daniel and Israel to a world of pagans. Chapter seven remained in Aramaic because it built upon King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in chapter two of the four-part image representing four kingdoms. Chapter seven speaks of those same four kingdoms, but in much greater detail as to their prophetic interpretation. The book returns to Hebrew in chapter eight because the focus now turns prophetically to the end times of interest to Israel and the church.
 
The “Syriack” language was derived from the original Chaldean language, thus the Aramaic had its roots in the Chaldaic language. The language of Syria was a spin-off from Chaldean language which is why Genesis 25:20 called Bethuel and Laban “Syrians” although they were native Chaldeans as was Abraham. The Syriack and Chaldaic language were virtually the same with minor differences that evolved with time.
 
Daniel now is in his eighties as God gives him four distinct visions of the future, one each in chapters 7, 8, 9, and 10. They each are given about one to three years apart. The books of Revelation and Zechariah build upon these four visions given in his night dreams.
 
Tomorrow we shall see what the first of those dreams looked like as described in chapter seven.

DULL OF HEARING
 
As a young child growing up in the 1950’s I had every childhood disease that came along. There were mumps, measles, chickenpox, whooping cough, and chronic bronchitis. Every time that I had something it settled in my ears and it started a hearing loss. When I was in sixth grade, they put me closer to the front of the classroom because I had a hard time hearing. 
 
Over the years I lived with this problem, but eventually I had to get help with hearing aids. What a difference it made for me. I had not realized how much I had missed. I was now hearing the birds again. I didn’t know that my wall clock ticked, and I didn’t have to ask everyone to repeat themselves. It literally changed my life. Anyone with a hearing loss can understand how this is, and those that never have had a hearing loss find it difficult to understand. You could say that if you haven’t experienced it you wouldn’t have a clue. 
 
There is another kind of hearing loss that is worse than any physical hearing loss. It is when we become dull of hearing spiritually. Hebrews chapter 5 speaks about this. Paul was writing to Jewish believers that were in great need of correct teaching. Verse 11 speaking about Jesus as our high priest says, “Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.” In other words, they weren’t hearing what he was trying to tell them. Verse 12 goes on to say, “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, (they had been taught the things of God for a long time) ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.” 
 
He admonishes them in verse 13, calling them babes, “unskillful in the word”. As I write this, there are many that have been in church for years but are “spiritually” hard of hearing. They have heard the word of God taught but never acted on it. They always think it is for someone else. Also, there are those in leadership that don’t teach anything that feeds the flock more than milk also. They, too, are “dull of hearing.” 
 
When I was in my 30’s, and that is a long time ago, I was in a Bible study. It was a study of the book of James. Chapter 1:22-24 says, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like a man beholding his natural face in a glass (mirror): For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.” 
 
In other words, the mirror represents the Word of God. If we look into it and see ourselves for what we truly are but do nothing to change ourselves then we are a hearer only. This causes us to be dull of hearing from that moment on.
 
I realized in that Bible study that I was a hearer but not a doer. I made the choice to repent and do what the word said. What do you do if you are in that same position? Are you a hearer but not a doer? If this message alone has brought conviction, then read the word and when it convicts you of sin, repent. Then make the choice to do what the Word of God says. It speaks to us when we are listening. Selah

PROPHETIC WORD
 
For I would say unto you this evening that I have a plan for your life, and it is good. The enemy has thrust hard against you, but I have prayed for you saith the Lord. You will not be defeated for you have stood strong on my word and in faith. For I would say that this evening you are declared righteous and totally victorious though the battles at hand seem to rage. For I would say unto you resist those plans that the enemy has and send them back to him seven times over, destroying the plan and the assignment against you. You have been strong in the word and in the power of my might, now continue to stand and you will see things change. Rise up in your authority and take back what has been stolen for you are more than able saith the Lord. Yes, there has been a heavy battle, but you will come through this victorious for I am with you. You shall look back at this day and say, see what the Lord has done. Yes, it is I that is with you, removing obstacles so that you can go forth victorious. For have I not said that in the last days these things would happen, but the remnant will rise up and be victorious for they have not given into the evil one. They have resisted and he is fleeing at this very moment. So, breathe in my spirit and declare my word and go forth victorious saith the Lord.

Sometimes in life you just have to hit alt.. control... delete; And that really is ok. You don’t need to waste your precious time hanging around folks, situations and places where you’re only tolerated. Absolutely not...For you need to go where you are celebrated. You have great worth; So don’t you dare allow anyone to try and diminish all that God created you to be!
PROPHETIC WORD
This is a prophetic word given by Kenneth E. Hagin about the future of the United States.
