The Book of Daniel

Daniel was taught by Dr. James Modlish


Chapter Two
(The Image - 2:1-49)



Daniel 2 is one of the most important chapters in the Bible when it comes to establishing what you believe about the future. Daniel 2 will determine what you will do with the millennium and a literal Second Coming of Jesus Christ. As a Bible Believer it is very important to have these truths established in your heart.


I. Daniel's Peril - (vs. 1-13)

A. Satan's crowd can receive supernatural revelations (Dan. 2:11; 1 Cor. 8:25; Ps. 82).

B. The real test of prophecy is the ability to foretell things far in the future - Since the image dealt with the things of the future, the magicians and astrologers had a difficult time with it (Rev. 19:10).
C. The world is good at trying the "stall" tactic (Dan. 2:8).


II. Daniel's Prayer & Praise - (vs. 14-23)

A. Daniel faced the chief executioner and king boldly (Dan. 2:14) - "The righteous are bold as a lion". (Prov. 28:1)

B. God overruled in these conversations (Prov. 21:1) and the King gave Daniel time.
C. Daniel and three friends immediately went to God in prayer (Dan. 2:17-18; Jam. 1:5; Matt. 7:7).
D. God revealed the dream and its meaning because of Daniel's spirit (Prov. 3:32; 25:14).
E. The deep and secret things belong to God (Dan. 2:22; Lk. 24:45; Gen. 40:8; Deut. 29:29).

How much time have you spent in prayer over the deep things of the word?


III. Daniel's Prophecy - (vs. 24-45)

Jesus called Daniel a prophet (Matt. 24:15).

Note: Jesus had more confidence in Daniel's prophecies, than the liberals today who claim to be followers of Jesus.

A. The image is a picture of the times of the Gentiles (Lk. 21:24).

B. The Stone - (vs. 34,44,45)

The stone is defined in (1 Pet. 2:3,6,8). Reference to the Second Advent of Christ - (Isa. 11:9)

(Rev. 11:15) - The Stone (Jesus Christ) will return to smash to dust the kingdoms of this world. They will all be characterized in the feet of the image.

The 10 toes represent the gentile kings of the Anti-Christ Empire - These kings are also found in (Dan. 7:7; Rev. 17:3,12; 13:1).

Iron seems to represent something more than human (Job 40:15-19).


IV. Daniel's Promotion - (vs. 46-49)

A. Daniel accepted worship - (Rom. 3:23).

Note: In (Dan. 3) when Nebuchadnezzar made an image to be worshipped, Daniel's three friends are thrown in a fiery furnace because of their refusal to bow down. Where is Daniel to protest?

His pride brought him to shame (Prov. 11:2).
