Very good application. The creativity that you used for this explanation drew me to comment on your post. Daniel and his friends are a wonderful example of the character and determination to have in a world in crisis. The goal of the Jews then and now is to prepare a temple where the Messiah will finally reign. As Christians that goal also concerns us. In what way are we preparing to bring his Kingdom to our place of influence, his millennial Kingdom in Jerusalem and finally his eternal Kingdom in the heavenly Jerusalem? Greetings.
