We look at a unique chapter of Daniel. So unique, in fact, that Daniel didn’t write it. Daniel chapter 4 is the personal testimony of King Nebuchadnezzar. We take a look at Nebuchadnezzar’s experience, why it is included, and how it may turn out in eternity for the King. We then turn our attention to why Nebuchadnezzar went through this experience – pride. We hope you enjoy this Bible study and are blessed by it.
As we continue to study the book of Daniel we come to a familiar story to most Christians. The story of three young Hebrew men who would not bow when the king attempted to force them to worship a graven image. The consequences were dire, but God was faithful. It’s a story we’ve been told since we were children in Sunday School, but there are interesting questions to ask in light of the events of Chapter 2. Why is the king doing this in first place? Why would anyone tell on these guys? And most intriguing of all – WHERE WAS DANIEL? We look at these questions and challenge ourselves with the resolve of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego as the study of Daniel continues.
Nebuchadnezzar’s advisers are put to the test, and it falls to Daniel to save their lives. What unfolds is a display of God’s foreknowledge of history. Daniel chapter 2 displays for us the full knowledge of God of history before history happens and a glimpse of what is to come in the future. This chapter is a defining chapter of scripture along with others in Daniel that provide authentication not only for this book’s place in scripture, but also as a precisely prophetic book.
Jody isn’t here on this return to the podcasting airwaves, but we start fresh with a new Bible study through the book of Daniel. There is some history leading into the timeline of the book, information about the book’s authenticity, then we dive into the book and Daniel and his friends’ first stand in Babylon. We hope you are blessed by this new study, and encouraged by the life of Daniel.
In this edition of Lakeview Cast our study through the book of Isaiah continues. Steve ambitiously tries to make it through 5 chapters of study only making it through two. Jody and Steve discuss wasting time watching craftsmen at work as well as what to actually call the podcast as it pertains to ministry.
We continue our study through Isaiah as we see God’s judgments against what could be considered the world powers in Isaiah’s day. Throughout these passages Isaiah looks beyond the locality of his day and brings out things that seem to have the Millennial Reign in view. The goal of this portion of the study is to help us see that God was faithful to what he told Isaiah about the times then so we can trust Him to be faithful about what He says about the future for us.
Our study through Isaiah continues, we delve into some theories on the location of the ark of the covenant, and Steve and Jody are up to their old shenanigans…little do they know that next week there will be a technical glitch.
We pick up Isaiah where we last left off in Chapter 14. First we go back over some information given at the end of last week’s edition, and then we finish discussing the fall of Babylon vs. The Doom of Babylon, but not before taking a look at Lucifer and his fall. Before all of this, Jody and Steve talk about the eclipse, crying at the eclipse, and Steve calls someone an idiot.
Jody tells a story that was promised on the last edition, then we get into the book of Isaiah. Steve tries to make it all the way through Chapter 14 but gets hung up on some things. If you walk away confused about the last topic discussed, that’s ok, we will cover it again in the next episode. Babylon is at the center of the discussion as we look at the the 13th chapter of Isaiah on this edition of the Lakeview Cast.
We continue to look into the book of Isaiah with Chapters 11 and 12. In Chapter 11 we discuss the regathering of Israel into the land as well as Christ’s rule from the throne of David. Jody and Steve discuss having too much fun, serious questions, and give a tease of their conversation on the next edition.
