Apocalypse of Daniel: Then and Now
by Rev. Benjamin A. Maynard, Jr.

The Apocalypse of Daniel: Then and Now is an interesting study of how God deals with men and kingdoms. He takes Daniel from Judah and has him transported as a captive to Babylon, where he serves the royal court for approximately ninety years. God uses him to save the soothsayers, magicians, and Chaldeans from death when they could not interpret Nebuchadnezzars dream. At this time, God prepares Daniel to serve Him by giving him the interpretation when Daniel and his three friends pray for God to reveal His wisdom and knowledge to them to be able to interpret the dream. Daniel shows Nebuchadnezzar that God is in charge of all the affairs of man and only he controls destinies of men, and that He God puts men on thrones and dethrones them when it serves His purposes.

Daniel served this erstwhile king for over forty years and Daniel served at least until the time of Cyrus the Great. Through his influence, the Babylonians were long awaiting the coming of the Prince of Peace, whereas they responded and found Jesus in Bethlehem, Judeah, approximately six hundred years after the time of Daniel.
