A Brief Study of Daniel
Daniel is a man named among the Greats!
Ezekiel 14:20 "Though Noah,
Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver
neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their
Daniel could understand dreams and visions – Daniel
Daniel would not eat the King’s meat or drink his wine Daniel
I. The Uncompromising
Two reasons why Daniel did not eat this meat and drink
Daniel is promoted Daniel 6:1-3.
His enemies seek to set him at fault- notice what they had to do Daniel
6:4-5. They find a way Daniel 6:6-9.
Notice what happens next Daniel 6:10-14.
Leviticus 17:10-14 –
The meat was not properly prepared
Deuteronomy 5:6-9 – This
activity was connected with idolatry
Daniel is delivered by God – Daniel
II. Daniel in the Lion’s
King Darius makes a new law – Daniel
Notice in the armor that we are to wear Ephesians
6:10-17 what else we need to do that Daniel did Ephesians
Nebuchadnezzar had a dream. He needed someone to interpret
that dream – Daniel 2:36-45 – The Kingdom
that never would be destroyed. Christ was going to be born to have an everlasting
Kingdom Luke 1:30-35. His Kingdom would
stand Matthew 16:18-19, II
Peter 1:11 and Hebrews 12:28.
His Kingdom is not of this world John 18:36.
III. Daniel Prophesied
Notice also Daniel 7:13-14.
Notice how Christ left this earth Acts 1:9
Paul and Silas – Acts 16:23-34.
The conversion of the Jailor
IV. God may put us in
the "wrong place, at the right time"
Or even the right place….
Philip Acts 8:26-39

We need men like Daniel today in the Church – Philippians
