Daniel 9

Daniel 9 is one of the greatest chapters in the Bible. A few observations:

1. Daniel sits down and studies prophecy – devotionally. Not to be bookish or combative. It edifies his soul and it keeps God in the realm of the real.

2. Studying prophecy leads to intercessory prayer. It convicts him of sin and it motivates him to action.

3. The instant Daniel begins to pray, God dispatches Gabriel to go to Daniel. Daniel is greatly loved. And God knows his prayers even before he prays them (Matthew 6:8).

4. This vision of Messiah is the first not to make him afraid or sick.

5. God is going to end sin, and when he does, prophecy will be done (1 Corinthians 13). Prophecy convicts of sin.

6. The Most Holy will be anointed king only when his kingdom is holy.
