Daniel 11 is both an amazing and disturbing chapter. It is amazing, because it prophesied with striking detail many world events between the end of the Old Testament and the time of Christ's birth. Those who reject the Bible as the supernatural Word of God are forced to deny this chapter as a product of Daniel's writing in the 6th century B.C. Those who believe God is the author of the Scriptures point to this chapter as one of the most spectacular examples of the accuracy of His predictions.
But the chapter is also disturbing. It shows how powerful and painful the principle of sowing and reaping is. It shows that the harvest we reap can be longer and much larger than the seed and the time we spent sowing. That can be good if you planted righteousness; it can be terrible if you sowed sin. Today we will look in more depth at both the prophecy of Daniel 11 and the principle of sowing and reaping. We also be reminded of God's sovereign grace through it all. I hope you will join in.
