The Prophet Daniel
Transcript of The Prophet Daniel
How did People receive Daniel's Message and how do we receive it Today?
The Babylonian people did not receive his message well at first and he did not have many friends, but after God saved him from the lions and saved his friends from the fiery furnace, the King told everyone to praise and have faith in the god of Daniel. These days we take the message much better and are still carrying on his message to have faith and trust in God.

Judah was reduced to rubble when the Babylonians attacked and many skilled workers from the city were taken prisoners along with the Ark of the Covenant. A new law was decreed that all Babylonians must only be aloud to pray to the King for 30 days. Daniel disobeyed the law and continued to pray to God three times a day. As punishment Daniel was thrown into a pit of lions. Fortunately God sent an angel who shut the lion's mouths and he emerged the next morning unscathed

An example of a modern day prophet would be mother Teresa and Mary Mackillop, Both of which put their utmost trust in God and stuck to his word no matter what. The word of God was the 10 Commandments that he gave to Moses on Mount Sinai. “Let God’s Spirit guide you in your choice.” Mary Mackillop, 1898. "Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies". Mother Teresa.
