SUMMARY FROM PREVIOUS LESSON: February 20th 2014

BIBLE LESSON TOPIC: The Importance of Preparation for Presentation (God has to prepare us for greatness)

 

SCRIPTURE TEXT: Daniel Chapter 1:1-4

 

DESCRIPTION: Many times we think that we are ready for the blessing of a new job or promotion on an existing job, for that special significant other, a husband or wife so that we can have a lasting and successful relationship.  When we prepare ourselves we are willing to receive additional training or further our education and the knowledge we have by learning something that is pertinent or relevant to what we want to accomplish.  

SUMMARY OF THE LESSON: Performance for Presentation

(Daniel 1:1)  In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.

 

1.) The ancient city of Babylon is now located in what country? IRAQ

Babylon was the capital of a small city state of Mesopotamia named Babylonia located in what is now Iraq near modern town of Hilda on the eastern banks of the Euphrates River.

 

(Daniel 1:2)  And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with part of the vessels of the house of God: which he carried into the land of Shinar to the house of his god; and he brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god.

 

2.) What is the difference between God and god?  Captial G,  represent the Supreme Ruler of the Earth and Heaven, God Almighty, The Everlasting Father, Jehovah is His Name, Elohim, Yehovah to the Jews, for God’s name is interpreted in many ways to different cultures, but He is the Unknown God that many who don’t know His Name, believe He is the Creator of all living things, including mankind.  When in reference to god with a small g, is in for a demi or deity that is not recognize as the Almighty, the Creator but may have powers and be worshipped by others, this is idol worship for it isn’t to the one true God but a lessor or false god. Some cultures worship the god of the sea (Poseidon) the god of the wind, or have various gods for certain events or things such a fertility, harvest.  Satan is known as a god for those who worship him, he is the Prince of Darkness, and he is known by many other names to those who serve him.

 

(Daniel 1:3)  And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king's seed, and of the princes;

 

What happens to men that makes them eunuchs? They are castrated, the removal of the male genitals.  These men were placed as guards over the kings wives, concubines, mistress and harems because they were unable to have sex.

 

(Daniel 1:4)  Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king's palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.

 

4.) These are the qualifications for those who are to be sent before the King.  The character, behavior and attributes were a decisive factor in the presentation to royalty.  Royalty isn’t always attributed to rights by birth or inheritance.  God prepared some for the prestigious elevation while others who were born were rejected and lost their inheritance to who God deemed qualified to rule.
