Four Hundred Years of Preparation | Daniel 11
Daniel 11 | Cornerstone Church of Savannah | Shaun Marksbury | 20 December, 2016
Good morning, church! We're doing something different today, so we'll be in Daniel 11. Why did God give this prophecy? The Jews alive during that time would be comforted and have complete confidence that the prophesied Messiah was coming; we indeed find Messianic expectations high in the first century during the time of Jesus. Verse 35 reveals the main point, though—“so that they may be refined, purified, and made white, until the time of the end, for it still awaits the appointed time.” Much like He would do through John the Baptist, God is making the way straight centuries in advance. So, we’re calling this message “Four Hundred Years of Preparation,” and we have Christmas on the horizon.
