God’s Redemptive Plan

As Seen Through Daniel’s Eyes

purpose of this presentation
Purpose of This Presentation
  • This presentation is designed to show
    • God’s plan of redemption in the Book of Daniel
    • How Satan – though against God – is used to bring God glory
    • How God used Daniel to show us the details of His plan
    • How Satan has been attempting to overthrow God by uniting the world under his cause
    • How God will always be triumphant and His purposes will prevail
god s redemptive plan1
God’s Redemptive Plan
  • God’s redemptive plan was never “Plan B”
  • God’s redemptive purposes always succeed
  • Satan fell by promising several things:
    • I will ascend to heaven;
    • I will raise my throne above the stars of God,
    • I will sit on the mount of assembly…
    • I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
    • I will make myself like the Most High
  • His goal is to be LIKE God as RULER of universe!
  • God’s goal is to RESTORE all of Creation!
god s redemptive plan2
God’s Redemptive Plan
  • Satan said he would ASCEND to heaven
  • He said he would RAISE his throne above stars (angels)
  • Sitting on the mount of assembly is reference to RULE
  • This began Satan’s quest to rule over all that God had created
  • Satan – a created being – saw himself as an ETERNAL being - uncreated

god s redemptive plan3
God’s Redemptive Plan
  • Satan caused Adam/Eve to fall (Genesis 3)
  • Once they fell, Satan gained control of the earth
  • Part of the plan of redemption included Jesus regaining the title deed to earth (Revelation 5)
  • Satan also learned that one day, the Savior would come and deliver a fatal blow to him
  • Because of this, Satan chose to corrupt humanity
  • Corrupting humanity would keep Savior from being born (he thought)
  • Satan succeeded (Genesis 6:11) except for Noah and his family
god s redemptive plan4
God’s Redemptive Plan
  • God saved Noah and specific animals to start over again (Genesis 9)
  • By Genesis 10, Satan had raised up Nimrod
  • Bible says he was a “hunter of men”
  • Nimrod is the first “type” of Antichrist in the Bible
  • Nimrod wanted to create a global government with him as leader
  • Already HAD several kingdoms (Genesis 10)
  • Tower of Babel was symbol of Nimrod’s desire to rise above earth toward heaven
  • The world spoke one language making this easier than today
god s redemptive plan5
God’s Redemptive Plan
  • God stopped the progress by introducing many languages
  • People went off with others who spoke their language
  • Attempt to build one-world government was halted
  • God had things He needed to accomplish first
    • Israel needed to be created
    • OT prophets needed to live and write
    • Birth of Savior needed to be foretold
    • Times of Gentiles needed to be told (human empires)
    • Savior needed to be born, live, die, and rise again
god s redemptive plan6
God’s Redemptive Plan
  • After these things, God would allow Satan to create a one-world government, to be led by Antichrist
  • It would take many generations to accomplish
  • Summary of events toward one-world government:
    • Satan gained control of earth with the fall of Adam/Eve
    • Tried to keep Savior from being born by corrupting all humanity - FAILED
    • Tried to create a one-world government by using Nimrod - FAILED
    • Though Satan failed, God allowed him to try again
    • Ultimate failure would prove Satan could not keep his promises and that God is NOT a liar
seeing through daniel s eyes
Seeing Through Daniel’s Eyes
  • Daniel provides insight into what is known as the “Times of the Gentiles” (or the “70 Weeks”)
    • Man-led empires that began with Nebuchadnezzar
    • Man-led empires that will end with Antichrist (last “Nimrod”)
    • Tracing these empires helps us understand what God is allowing Satan to TRY to accomplish
    • These man-led empires take us up to the actual, physical return of Jesus to earth
    • For the details, we turn to Daniel
summary of daniel
Summary of Daniel
  • Chapters 1 – 6: Historical & Predictive
  • Chapters 7 – 12: Apocalyptic
  • Daniel 2:4 to 7:28: to the nations in Aramaic
  • Daniel 1; 8 to 12: to the Jewish people in Hebrew
  • Daniel reveals many aspects of God’s (as well as Satan’s) plan for humanity

The “Times of the Gentiles” (or “70 Weeks”) is revealed in Daniel

The “Times of the Gentiles” EQUALS the “70 Weeks” in Daniel

    • God tells Daniel of future history - remarkably accurate
    • The Ram represents the Medo-Persian Empire

    • His empire was divided into four parts – one for each of his four generals
    • “Little horn” rises out of four – Antiochus Epiphanes

    • Daniel is shown (via Nebuchadnezzar’s dream) the order in which the empires will occur
      • Babylon
      • Medo-Persian
      • Greek
      • Roman
      • Revived Roman Conglomerate
babylon 1st empire
Babylon – 1st Empire
  • Head of Gold is represented by Babylon (vv. 37-38).
  • Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the Solomonic Temple and Jerusalem in 586 B.C.
  • Began the Gentile domination of Jerusalem
  • Nebuchadnezzar was given grant to rule the entire earth, but chose not to exercise this rule as confirmed in Jeremiah 27:5-8 and Ezekiel 26:7-14
medo persian 2 nd empire
Medo-Persian – 2nd Empire
  • Two Arms of Silver united is represented by the Medes and Persians
  • Established the Medo-Persian Empire (v. 39)
  • This empire is declared to be inferiorto the Babylonian Empire.
  • Lacked inner unity because the Medes and Persians, though united, never fused into one people.
greece 3 rd empire
Greece – 3rd Empire
  • The Belly and Two Thighsis represented by Alexander the Great and the Grecian Empire (v. 39b)

  • Two thighs may also represent Syria and Egypt, which arose from the Hellenistic Empire and controlled Jerusalem and Jewish territory
rome 4 rd empire
Rome – 4rd Empire
  • Legs of Iron and the FINAL empire both represented by Rome – the Fourth Empire
  • This fourth empire goes through three stages
    • United Stage (v. 40)

    • Ten Division Stage (vv. 42-43, as seen in the 10 toes)
  • Part of the empire will be weak and part strong

Satan’s Plan Moved Forward

  • This has been ultimately directed to the
    • European countries
    • United States of America
  • Paul tells us that in the End Times, we will experience a Great Falling Away
  • This will clear the path for Satan to create his final and GLOBAL union
    • One-world government
    • One-world leader
    • One-world company
    • One-world currency
daniel 9 24 25 70 weeks
Daniel 9:24-25 – 70 Weeks
  • “Times of the Gentiles” is also defined by the “70 Weeks” of Daniel 9
  • The 70 sevens is broken down by Gabriel into two main sections:
    • From decree to rebuild Jerusalem to…
    • Messiah the prince
    • 7 sevens and 62 sevens together = 69 sevens
    • 69 “sevens” equals 483 years
    • Now what?
    • There is only one “week” (one seven) left
daniel 9 24 25
Daniel 9:24-25
  • Shouldn’t the last “week” havealready occurred?
  • Shouldn’t it be long in our past?
  • YES…IF…
daniel 9 24 251
Daniel 9:24-25
  • There is NO break between weeks (sevens)
  • Does the text indicate a break?
  • Verse 25 teaches us about the 7 and 62 weeks (sevens), totaling 69 weeks (sevens)
daniel 9 24 26
Daniel 9:24-26
  • Daniel 9:26 says,

“Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined.”

daniel 9 24 261
Daniel 9:24-26
  • Once the 7 weeks and 62 weeks finish running consecutively without a break, THEN a break occurs
  • Note the 62 weeks (sevens) immediately follows the 7 weeks (sevens) of verse 25
daniel 9 24 262
Daniel 9:24-26
  • Verse 26 describes three events that must occur when the 69 weeks (sevens) have finished their course
    • Messiah will be cut off - killed
      • Cleary represents crucifixion of Jesus
daniel 9 24 263
Daniel 9:24-26
  • Three events continued…
    • People of prince to come – (who is that?)
      • They will destroy the city AND the sanctuary
      • This represents the Romans in A.D. 70 when both Jerusalem and Temple were destroyed
daniel 9 24 264
Daniel 9:24-26
  • End will come with a flood
    • End of Jerusalem?
    • End of the Tribulation?
    • Flood is used in Bible for actual flood or to represent a military invasion
    • Gabriel then jumps ahead to THE end of human history:
      • War
      • Desolations
daniel 9 27
Daniel 9:27
  • Gabriel then refers back to someone here with “he”
    • He will confirm covenant with many
    • Who is “he”?
      • Jesus?
      • Someone else?
      • Can we know for sure?
      • What about rule of antecedents?
daniel 9 271
Daniel 9:27
  • Last Antecedent Rule
  • “President Lincoln gave his Gettysburg Address speech…”
  • “His” obviously refers back to Lincoln
  • “His” is the referent to Lincoln
daniel 9 26 27
Daniel 9:26-27
  • 25 …until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress. 26Then after the sixty-two weeks theMessiahwill be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to comewill destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined.
  • 27 And hewill make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week hewill put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate
daniel 9 272
Daniel 9:27
  • Who is “he” of verse 27?
  • Is it Messiah?
  • Are there TWO different princes mentioned or just ONE?
  • Last Antecedent – first use of “he” in verse 27 must refer back to the…
  • “people of the prince who is to come”
  • Can we know if Messiah the prince and second “prince” are different?
daniel 9 273
Daniel 9:27
  • Key is found in the phrase:
  • “people of the prince who is to come”
  • Who are the people who destroyed the city and sanctuary
  • This event occurred AFTER 62 weeks (sevens) but BEFORE final week (seven)
daniel 9 274
Daniel 9:27
  • “Then after the…” (v. 26)
  • Points to a break between 69th and 70th weeks (sevens)!
  • How long is this break?
  • Are we still in it or did it end?
