Watch "HISTORY OF RELIGION" (Part 10): DANIEL & THE LION'S DEN


In the last Part of the series we saw Judah captive in Babylon.  They were taken from their land and now forced to live in Babylon.  King Nebuchadnezzar wanted to assimilate them with his people.  I briefly explained that when a nation conquers another land and its people, it’s not just about ruling by force.  The best way to rule over a people is to spread their culture to the younger generation.  They take their language, their traditions, their religion, and they teach it to the younger generation.  King Nebuchadnezzar tried to do the same thing with Judah when they were taken captive.  He called for the best looking, brightest young men from Judah and educated them for 3 years.  All this to further the kingdom of Babylon.  As we saw in Part 9, Elohim intervened in this process of assimilation and what happened was inverted.  King Nebuchadnezzar was humbled and wound up praising Yahweh.  This was done impart through Daniel who was blessed by Elohim with knowledge and the interpretations of dreams.  Elohim used these nations to make His great name known to these other nations and empires establishing His kingdom.  Anytime His true servants were tested he was there to protect them and bring a testimony.  Sometimes He uses your troubles to reveal His greatness, but it only works when you submit to Him and let it show.  There was more evidence to be shown of the greatness of Yahweh.  And this is what this part of the series will show. Let’s Begin!
