God Bless you on your Journey towards Christ. Go to www.i-challengeyou.com for more Info.

Daniel 3,4:

3 – This chapter has one of my favorite bible stories. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego survive the hot furnace with the presence of our Lord. I just recently learned in a sermon that this was not just an angel, this was Jesus our Lord who is, always was, and is yet to come.

4 – Praise God Almighty that His word always stands the test of time and always comes true, unwavering in all of its intireity. I love when God humbles powerful people, and then in turn uses their worldly power to now proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

Psalm 81:

Verse 9 – our foreign God’s today come in all shapes and sizes. We have to be completely honest with ourselves that we don’t put anything above God, or even on the same level as God. Idol worship today has many different disguises, craftily presented by the father of lies. We must seek the Spirit of God to open our eyes to any idol worship in our lives. We must then ask for forgiveness and repent of these wicked sins.

Revelation 17:

Wow! I found a great site that gave me some awesome insight into this chapter. For further detail and insight go to this link.

I will just share in brief what I learned.

The Great Prostitute

  • is the pagan religion practices of this world. That began in the days of Nimrod (Gen:10) and continue to this day. Any religion where God is not the Father, and Jesus is not the Son that paid the ultimate price for our sins and rose from the dead, is against God. The writer of this site also said that Christianity is not a religion, it is a re-birth of your life. Transforming your mind, and putting to death your old sinful nature, rising anew in baptism with the Spirit of God. I liked that, not. Its not a religion it is a new life.

The Beast

  • is satan, but will take on the form of a man when the Antichrist rises to power. The religions of this world have been riding on the back of satan or the beast, deceiving people for thousands of years.
  • Verses 16 describes the destruction of all religions that are opposed or against the worship of the Antichrist, when he comes to rule over the world declaring himself God (described below, eighth king).

The Seven Heads

  • no one knows all this stuff exactly except God ( Rev. 10:4) so we must be very careful when we learn prophecy like this. It’s all good insight if it aligns with the Bible, but we should never get so set on timing, or exact information that can’t be thoroughly proved by scripture. The seven heads are to represent the seven governments that will take over this world. No one knows exactly how they will be divided, but there will definitely be seven.

Ten Horns

  • this represents the ten leaders of these seven governments that will come to power in the end times. They also will be of same mind and vision, all possibly under demonic possession. But all willed by God Almighty(v.17) for His mysterious purpose. One of these leaders will be fatally wounded, and possibly even the kingdom he represents. But this man will rise from the dead, seeming to be a complete miracle to the World. The remaining leaders will then give all their power and authority to this supreme leader (antichrist). He will then form the eighth kingdom, and be the eighth king of that kingdom, The One World Kingdom.

In a nutshell that describes some of the symbolism in this chapter. Again this I learned from the website link here. The site gives much greater detail into each matter, I learned so much and I highly encourage you to check it out.
