Hello everyone. 🙂
Today we will begin our study of Daniel 11. I decided that it would be wise for me to break up this study into parts (how many parts, I’m not sure).
Today, I am simply providing a very short overview of Daniel 11. In future blog posts, we will go into the meaning of the prophecy in Daniel 11. I would appreciate your prayers as I study and write about this detailed chapter in God’s word. Without further ado, let’s go into this very short overview of Daniel 11.
An Overview of Daniel 11
The prophecy in Daniel 11 begins in the time of the kingdom of Medo-Persia (verse 2). It then continues on into the time of the kingdom of Greece (verses 2-4). The rest of this chapter details the conflicts that occur between “the king of the north” and “the king of the south”. The chapter ends with the king of the north experiencing an utter defeat.
In future blog posts, we will seek to determine the identities of “the king of the north”, “the king of the south”, and the other entities who are mentioned throughout this prophecy.
This is a detailed chapter, but I trust that God will guide me as I seek to share His word.
“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” 2 Peter 1:20-21 (KJV)
I do not want to share any “private interpretations” of Daniel 11 that my mind comes up with. I want the Holy Spirit to lead me into the truth about this prophecy, and I want to share only this truth with you all. I prayerfully claim John 16:13 as I continue to study Daniel 11.
I hope that this very short overview of Daniel 11 has piqued your interest. Next week’s blog post won’t be about Daniel 11, but the following week’s blog post will be. I hope that you all will stay on this journey of exploring God’s word with me.
