Living Against the Flow - Daniel

God Knows

Passage: Daniel 11:1-45 One well-regarded commentator denied that it was even possible to preach a sermon on this morning’s text. Granted, this passage contains an overwhelming amount of historical specificity focused upon a time that would appear to have little-to-any relevance to a 21st century Christian. But there are truths and themes contained within this […]

The Battle Rages Unseen

Passage: Daniel 10:1-21 Living in the west, we are far more skeptical of spiritual reality and demonic activity than people in less developed parts of the world. We often make two critical errors when it comes to Satan: either we give him too much credit by “finding him under every rock”, or we live as […]

The Answer to Daniel’s Prayer

Passage: Daniel 9:20-27 One commentator has said, “The history of the exegesis of the 70 weeks of Daniel is the dismal swamp of Old Testament criticism.” To say the least, this is one of the most difficult, controversial, and misunderstood passages in all of Scripture.

Daniel in the Lion’s Den

Passage: Daniel 6:1-28 It is certainly one of the most well-known of all bible stories, but this is no children’s tale. As we complete the first half of the book of Daniel (the account of Daniel’s life), we are again presented with a man who stands faithful because the God he serves is completely sovereign […]

The Handwriting on the Wall

Passage: Daniel 5:1-31 This morning in Pastor Dan’s absence, we welcome Rick Hackett to the pulpit. Rick is an elder here at Mayer Community Church. Today’s passage continues the theme of God’s sovereignty which we have seen in these opening chapters of the book of Daniel. Like Nebuchadnezzar last week, King Belshazzar, despite all his […]

Down is the Way Up

Passage: Daniel 4:1-37 He was amazed in chapter 2 and astonished in chapter 3, yet he was not converted. Despite Nebuchadnezzar’s idolatry, pride, and arrogance, God did not quit working on him. Today we consider how the most powerful man on earth learned the lesson that the true path to glory is through humility, and […]
