God Rescues His Faithful People - Daniel Chapter 6

Introduction

What's wrong with this picture?

(Daniel was NOT a young man when he faced the lions)

Daniel has now been in Babylon for 66 years, and aged about 80. So far we have seen that God never leaves His People (chapter 1), that God Rules & Reveals (chapter 2), that God Humbles Man's Pride (chapter 3), that God Delights in Mercy (chapter 4) and that God is Number One (chapter 5). Now we see that "God Rescues His Faithful People" in this chapter.

Goodness Seen v1-3

Goodness Hated v4-9

Goodness Tested v10-13

Goodness Loved v14-20

Goodness Rescued v21-28

Goodness Killed (Another Daniel - his name means "God is my Judge" - we see Him in the rest of Daniel's book)

2 "Daniels"
Daniel Jesus the Son of God
Innocent (no wrong to king) Innocent (no wrong ever)
Condemned falsely Condemned falsely
Rescued (God shut the lions' mouths) NOT rescued (God did not shut the lions' mouths - Psalm 22:1,13)

WHY? - 2 Corinthians 5:21 - "For our sake He made Him to be sin, who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God". "It pleased the Lord to bruise Him". Daniel can not help us on the judgment day - But Jesus the Son of God can! "He will see the labour of His soul and be satisfied." Only at cross of Jesus Christ is there rescue and safety - Where are you today?

In the cross of Christ I glory, standing o'er the wrecks of time; all the light of sacred story gathers round its head sublime
My heart is filled with thankfulness
To Him who bore my pain;
Who plumbed the depths of my disgrace
And gave me life again;
Who crushed my curse of sinfulness
And clothed me in His light
And wrote His law of righteousness
With pow'r upon my heart.
