(Ver 1.2) This is Part 3 in a Prophetic Bible study series concerning the Satanic Agenda Designed to Attempt to Take Over America and the Entire World. Today’s subject is focused on a new very specific but very significant part of the Satanic plan to silence and remove Christian influence. Christians are still being targeted in greater numbers today, much like we were when the church first began nearly 2000 years ago. We will soon discover that Satan uses the same strategy and plan to silence and remove God’s people as he did with the Old Covenant natural people of Israel. We will explore this ancient and repeated pattern found in the Bible today. Hopefully we will learn from these warnings given to us by God to not fall into these tricks and traps of Satan. That is why this lesson is so essential. It is the Christian’s ignorance of our enemy and the Word of God that gives Satan his greatest advantage to dominate us. This lesson is intended to give you wisdom of Satan’s devices and schemes. Today’s lesson will stand alone, but if you would like to read this series from the beginning, please go to “Part 1”.
Warning, Warning, Warning! This is a potential highly offensive subject to some. If you are not a spiritually mature Christian, it may be wiser if you do not read this lesson. It is never my intention to offend anyone. I desire only to hear from God and teach what I believe He gives to me. I have been studying the book of Daniel recently. I was going through the book of Daniel chapter 6 when the words came to life and I begin to see things that I had never thought of before. I believe this was because of what God wrote in Daniel 12:9 when Daniel was told that the words will be sealed until the time of the end. Therefore, I believe these old words of Daniel should be more relevant to us today at the end of the world than when it was originally written.
If you have not figured it out yet, the subject today is political in nature. Therefore, if you are easily offended by ideas you don’t agree with, please stop and go read something else. Please, do not read what was written, get angry and leave us a very nasty and hateful comment. That is NOT appropriate Christian behavior. If you feel confident that you are mature, please let’s begin.
Recently I have been studying the books of Daniel and Revelation. A couple of days ago while going over chapter 6 of the book of Daniel the words really leaped off the page and I saw things that I had not previously observed. A new perspective based upon the events that have been happening in the United State and other nations (like Israel) came into a new dimension of understanding. When this happens, I have learned to recognize that it is God teaching me something new for my benefit and to share. So, I pray that you will be open to receive it.
So many Christians in the United States have been very passive when observing what has taken place in our nation and our government. The moral decay of the fabric of our nation has been in a slide downward and to the left for the last 60+ years. Darkness has been allowed to creep in gradually until it has gotten overwhelmingly more powerful and corrupt. It began to be noticeable in the 1950’s. Then its influence became more pronounced and openly in your face in the 60’s. Perhaps you are old enough to remember? Do you recall the removal of prayer and Bible from public Schools? Did you know almost every major university began as an institute for the purpose of teaching people the Bible? How did we allow this removal to happen? What were the fruits produced from these evils? We began to see the rise of mass shootings. We began to see the rise of drugs. We began to see the rise of immorality and nudity in public. One of the next major consequences happened with abortion being legalized because men and women wanted sex but not the consequences of the sex. Then we were slowly introduced to the gay lifestyle as being acceptable. On and on I could go about the moral decline of the United States. I believe a large part of the blame of why this occurred should be placed upon Christians not standing up for and with God’s Word.
I don’t agree with everything that the Presidents says or does. But I do agree with a large portion of his accomplishments. He supports religious freedoms. He supports freedom of speech. He supports the right of people to defend themselves. He supports a strong military. He works hard to make America safe and prosperous. He supports the nations of Israel. He is opposed to abortion. Why isn’t everyone in favor of these great blessings, rights and freedoms? I have never witnessed a President in my lifetime that has promised to do something and then actually done it. Most politicians make empty promises to get elected and suddenly grow amnesia to not remember what they told us they would do. Therefore, rather than pick up stones to throw at anyone, I just want to address what God says in His Word about how Satan used people to try to remove His appointed leaders from their high offices. I hope you are ready to learn, please get your Bibles out and open them to the book of Daniel chapter 6.
SATAN’S PLAN AND STRATEGY TO GAIN POWER
When reading chapter 6 of Daniel, I believe that there is a message from the LORD. This message concerns Satan’s plan to take out God’s chosen leaders. After reading and studying this chapter I began to see amazing parallels to what has been happening in the United States with our President. It was as plain as it could be. It is amazing how the devil uses the identical tactics that he used before on previous leaders. We will soon learn that this plan failed then and I believe that it will not succeed now either. But that outcome is conditional. We all like to read stories in the Bible and see how God delivered someone from great potential harm and even death. But we must first judge ourselves to determine if we are doing what they did to be protected. Wow, that was an important truth. This is what I pray for myself, you and our President.
According to Ecclesiastes 1:9 God said, “The thing that has been, is the thing that shall be, that which was done will be done again, for there is nothing new under the sun”. God is teaching us that there are patterns from the past that will be repeated again in the future. In other words, I believe that we can find everything that will happen in the next few years laid out in detail from the words written down by God in the past, believe it or not. I know a lot of people don’t believe this, but it is still the truth. I’ll give you another verse that confirms this foundational truth in Isaiah 46:10 “Declaring the end from the beginning…”. You see God teaches us that the end was already written down in the beginning. God knew the ending before our world was created.
Please read though the entire story of Daniel if you have the time. But if not, please focus upon chapter 6. I will include the verses in this lesson that are important. Who was Daniel? Daniel was a highly favored man of God. Daniel was one of the only men in the entire Bible, besides Jesus where nothing directly negative was written about him. He followed God’s commands to the letter and was a very diligent man of prayer. Daniel was taken captive with others in Jerusalem and carried away to Babylon. Daniel as you will learn from reading his story rose to the second most powerful position in the Kingdom of Babylon only being under the ruler Nebuchadnezzar. Nebuchadnezzar grew in pride and his kingdom was overthrown by the Persians. But Daniel was still given favor from God and again rose to power being 2nd in command to only Darius of the Persian Empire. What were some of the qualities that made Daniel blessed by God?
- Spirit of Excellence
These are just a few of the great characteristics that can be used to describe Daniel. I believe God is looking for more men and women with these characteristics today. Please read the story and we will go over the key points afterwards:
Dan 6:1 It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;
Dan 6:2 And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.
Dan 6:3 Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
Dan 6:4 Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.
Dan 6:5 Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.
Dan 6:6 Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever.
Dan 6:7 All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the counsellors, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions.
Dan 6:8 Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
Dan 6:9 Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.
Dan 6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.
Dan 6:11 Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.
Dan 6:12 Then they came near, and spake before the king concerning the king’s decree; Hast thou not signed a decree, that every man that shall ask a petition of any God or man within thirty days, save of thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
Dan 6:13 Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day.
Dan 6:14 Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured till the going down of the sun to deliver him.
Dan 6:15 Then these men assembled unto the king, and said unto the king, Know, O king, that the law of the Medes and Persians is, That no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed.
Dan 6:16 Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.
Wow, wow, and wow! What an awesome story of Satan’s plots, plans, deceptions and tricks to get a chosen man to stop him from doing what was right in the eyes of God and to eliminate him from his powerful position in the government. I pray that you will begin to see how this is happening again in our U.S. government. We will begin by observing some basic parallels. There were 120 rulers that were placed into power in Daniel 6 verses 1 through 3. But, the one man that was over them all was Daniel. I liken this to the 2018 mid-term election in the U.S. where one political party took power in the U.S. House of Representatives. Daniel, I liken to be a type of the President who was clearly of a different political party. The Darius I liken to be like the people of the U.S. that voted people into their powerful positions. Almost immediately after the election of 2018, the plot began to impeach the President. This opposing political party placed all their hopes in the Mueller Special Counsel Investigation report. It is very clear to me that all of this happening was in parallel to what we read in verse 4 of Daniel where the 120 and the presidents look for an “occasion” to remove Daniel.
Let’s go through some of the key words found in Daniel 6:4. The first word to notice is H5432 that was translated as “presidents”. This word is a Chaldea word that means “emir”. An “emir” is historically defined as a Muslim type of ruler. Wow, if that is not amazing? But I view these types of individuals to be likened to the leader of the house and the chairs of the sub-committees. Two of which are known as the Judicial Committee and the Foreign Relations Committee. Both leaders were heavily involved in leading the other “princes” of Congress to impeach the President.
The next key word in the verse is H1156 that was translated as “sought”. The verse says, “The presidents and the princes sought…”. This word is defined by Strong as “ask, pray, desire, request, petition, seek”. Wow, every word definition is profoundly parallel to what we see occurring in Congress. From the moment many liberal Congress women and men were sworn into office in January 2019 they swore a plan to impeach the President of the U.S. These word definitions imply a scheming and planning in secret as well as an external search for evidence for accusations. One key word definition “pray” was used outwardly on TV by several house representatives as they spoke to the news media. They would literally claim that this is such a solemn and prayerful time for us and the nation. They looked deeply into the camera and pretended to be deeply troubled and disturbed.
The next key word goes along with exactly what the Bible was saying in the last paragraph. This word is H7912 that was translated as “find” in this verse. “They sought to find….”. “Find” is defined by Strong as “a disclosure of previously hidden or forgotten thing”. In the light of what was going in this scenario of Daniel 6, it would be very much like them investigating how to create or produce evidence for the desired verdict of guilty to remove Daniel. This would be completely different than searching for the truth regardless of guilt or innocence. In other words, there was no presumption of innocence or due process. In fact for Daniel there was no ability for him to defend himself. But rather it is the display of an attitude that “we know he is guilty because….” and we hate him and we want Daniel out. Therefore, we must find the information necessary to achieve this goal. The end-result of taking Daniel from his place of authority, justifies whatever is done no matter how evil, unfair or unjust it was to obtain the goal. It is very clear to me that we are seeing people in Darius’ kingdom that were power hungry and very jealous of someone that was not like them and did not fit into their club. They hated Daniel so much that they would do anything to take him out of his position. Wow, does any of this sound familiar?
The next key word found in Verse 4 of Daniel 6 is H5931. This word was translated as “occasion”. They sought to find occasion…”. This word is defined by Strong as “a pretext”. What is a pretext? A “pretext” is defined as a false but good appearing reason that will be presented to people in order to hide the real motives for the evil actions committed against someone. This word selection by the Holy Spirit clearly shows the malicious intent of the scheming that occurred against Daniel. Behind the scenes in secret the real reasons would be discussed. Then everyone involved would agree to the false “talking points” to present to the King/public. The implied actions of the presidents and the princes were clearly coordinated and planned together in the unified attempt to get Daniel out of his high position in the government. This is exactly an example of what is occurring in Politics every day.
We will talk more about this pretext very soon and how it was used in Daniel 6 and in the impeachment of the President. Notice how verse 4 ends. They sought to find occasion against Daniel but found none”. This simply means they were searching and seeking everywhere for anything evil or illegal to accuse Daniel of doing but, couldn’t discover it. If found, they could then use it in a trial to legally remove Daniel. But there were no laws broken by Daniel. Isn’t that an amazing parallel to what occurred in the Special Counsel Mueller Report? I have never seen such evil prosecutions of people remotely associated with the President. They were turning over every rock looking for anything that could be used or turned against the President. But, in the end found nothing to charge him with.
What changed in the plot of the Daniel 120 to win their case? It appears to me that if the 120 in Daniel 6 could not do what they wanted legally to win, they sought a new tactic to do it deceptively. This new way was a hidden political tactic. Politicians often make an evil intent something good sounding on the external. This make it appear to be beneficial and legal on the outside, but it contains fraudulent and corrupt motives on the inside. For example, everyone running for political office and passing laws supporting abortion never speak about the murder and death of a child. They only call it something beneficial and legal sounding, like “women’s reproductive healthcare” or “Pro-Choice”. Wow, what twisted lies of the TRUTH! I warned you that this was probably going to offend someone.
There is an old American saying that declares “there is more than one way to skin the cat”. All this means is that there are other ways to achieve the desired goal especially if you are willing to be immoral. These 120 rulers thought they found a new way and it did work for them based upon their initial viewpoint. Let’s talk more about what this “pretext”, false and immoral way of winning their goal was next.
The new plan of the political party opposed to Daniel is revealed by God in verse 5. The people in Daniel 6:5 said “we are unable to find any occasion against Daniel, but we can find against the law of his God”. What was this saying? They were claiming that they could use the integrity of this man Daniel and his faithfulness in doing what is good and right for his God, in order to find a fault to accuse him with. It was their knowledge of Daniel’s character, Law, history and successes that could be used to be turned against him to their advantage. They used their knowledge of their enemy to achieve their evil desired goal and end-result. This is truly an important point for real committed Christians to learn from. What will happen when you stand with and upon the Word of God? You are going to be called names, persecuted and accused of supposed crimes even if you have done nothing illegal or immoral.
But, these politicians in Daniel were very clever and subtle. They knew there was not any existing law that could be used against Daniel, so they would try to create a new law that could be used. They approach King Darius in verse 6 beginning with the common praise of his deity like qualities. Then they begin their request of the king with a lie. Lies are a very common practice of politicians. They claim to the king that all the ruling leaders have agreed upon this request, but they knew that they had purposefully excluded Daniel. Daniel did not agree with their request before it was made. In fact, this is another common methodology of corrupt politicians. They meet in secret to plan their attack against their political enemy Daniel. We can see how this has been happening during the impeachment trial in the House of Representatives and even before this with the secret meeting of the whistleblower and the House investigating committee staff. These were all clear corrupt coordination meetings. The Intelligence committee also met in complete secrecy with no transparency or due process. The only information the public was given was selected leaks to the media that benefited their cause. Obviously, Daniel had no fair legal recourse or due process either to what was about to happen to him. We better wake up to what Satan is doing in our government.
Verse 7 continues their plan by asking the king to pass a decree that could not be revoked for any cause. They played a game with the king’s ego and pride to build up their own plot. The king fell for the trap. Their request was to make it illegal to pray and petition any other god except for Darius. Wow, this is what is coming to the world very soon. The anti-Christ will be doing the exact same very soon. It will soon be illegal to go to church, to praise the Lord, to hear the Word of God taught or pray. Don’t believe me? You should really study the book of Revelation. Christians that refuse to obey will lose their heads.
King Darius was lied to and tricked into signing the decree. The party of rulers rejoiced on this day of signing and passed out commemorative pens with their leader’s name on it to celebrate. Everything was now set. The political plot to remove Daniel from power was now in full motion. Their plan to accuse Daniel was already in the bank. It was a slam shut case with no way out, so they thought.
In verse 10 we find out Daniel heard the news of the order being signed making it illegal to pray to Jehovah. Yet, Daniel did faithfully just what the leaders of the nation knew that he would do. He went into his house with the window wide open and prayed out loud so that all the world could hear him. Wow, what happened to the president? He made a phone call to a foreign national leader with 25 people listening in. Everyone in the world learned that he was a man that actually did what he said he promised to do. If he promised to “drain the swamp” of corruption that could be used against him just like Daniel’s faithfulness to pray.
There was an insider whistleblower sitting outside the window of Daniel’s house that was in on the plan. The same happened with the President. There were insider members of the plan that were sitting in on the call to the Ukraine President. Isn’t it amazing the secret inner working of evil plans? However, the transcript of the call/prayer was brought before the king/public. The rulers begin in verse 12 asking the king, did you not sign an order that no prayer to any other god would be legal except to you alone, oh, King? The King answer “I did”. Then the charges are brought out in public open court that Daniel the King’s favorite ruler had disobeyed and must therefore be cast down into den of the lions.
Wow, the news of this cut the heart of the king. He was obviously in great pain because he knew that he had been tricked into signing this decree against Daniel. The King spent all day trying to figure out how to not allow Daniel to be cast into the lion’s den. But at the end of the day he had no choice but to put Daniel down in the hole and cover it with a rock. So, the impeachment trial was beginning. But, before the rock was closed the King said something amazing. Darius cried out to Daniel saying, “Thy God whom you serve faithfully will deliver you”. What would happen to Daniel in the impeachment trial of the den of lions?
The king had a very unpleasant and restless night and arose very early the next morning. He went very quickly to the den of lions and cried out to Daniel. He said “Oh Daniel, servant of the living God, is your God whom you serve able to deliver you from the lions? In verses 21 & 22 Daniel answer back and the heart of the king must have rejoiced inside. Daniel says, “Oh King live forever”. “My God sent His angel and shut the mouth of the lions; I am not hurt because I was found innocent”. Wow, wow, wow. I mean this is so profound according to the parallel of what has been happening in the U.S.A. Praise God the President was “acquitted” by the Senate quickly of all the false charges made against him by the majority party in the House of Representatives.
In verse 22 we find the King exceedingly happy and Daniel’s poll numbers increased even to greater favor with the King. The King immediately ordered Daniel to be taken out. Here is where we get into prophecy according to the story of Daniel. What happened to the political party that tricked the King into casting God’s chosen and highly favored man into the impeachment trial of the den of lions? In verse 24 we find the King immediately commanding all the men that accused Daniel to be thrown into the same den of lions. Wow, this is God’s Biblical law of “sowing and reaping”. Whatever a man gives out will come back on them. This works for good or for evil. I prophesy that what the political party wanted for the President will come back to fall on them.
If you haven’t noticed Daniel was a type of the President. I know there are a lot of Christians that believe the President does not compare to Daniel’s level of morality and character. However, we are not in a position to judge. I still believe that this is a valid pattern between Daniel and the President. I see all of the good that this President has accomplished in the face of severe opposition and resistance even from his own political party and I am in amazement. I really do not now of a man that could do this under this kind of pressure. Daniel was not a politician that was thrust into a high office and this certainly matches our current President.
The 120 rulers as I said before are a type of the political party that impeached the president for no just cause. The have been working in secret, behind the scenes to coordinate efforts to bring false accusations for a trial. The King in this story I believe is a type of the voting public. In the U.S. we are given the responsibility to vote the right leaders into power. However, U.S. people are too often tricked into believing the flattering lies of politicians to be elected and promoted for their corrupt power-hungry desires. I believe, the majority of the public will see that what was intended for evil will be turned again for their good by electing the right and fair political leaders that will work with God’s chosen president that is faithful to do what he promised them.
There are many other political stories in the Bible that teach us things that are occurring. A very similar trap of trickery is found in the book of Esther. The story of Esther, Mordecai and Haman is full of political implications. Haman plotted to kill the Jews and put Mordecai on the gallows, but his plans failed because God’s plan overruled. It was Haman that ended up on the gallows. Does that sound familiar? The Bible is covered with Politics. Please, learn what God says about it. Get involved with helping to elect people that will fulfill their promises and align with God’s Word. Your continued freedoms and rights depend on it. PLEASE, STOP BEING PASSIVE AND UNINFORMED!
Ok, I know I potentially just made a lot of new enemies. But I choose to study the Bible and write what He gives me regardless of how others are offended or choose to receive it. If you believe that you can just randomly take any story in the Bible and twist it to say what is happening in the world today, I challenge you to do this. But, don’t just make up your own definitions of the words in the Bible. Look up every word in the Strong’s dictionary and make sure you know what it means before you criticize what was written here.
Thank you for taking the time to read and study the Bible with us. I pray for you and I appreciate your prayers for me and my family. Be blessed by God with the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the Knowledge of Christ Jesus.
