Daniel 8




When was the last time you heard it said that something was "awesome"? Whatever it was, it probably was good, but was not literally awe-inspiring. With marketing coming at us constantly, words like "awesome" and "amazing" have lost their intended impact on most of us. Unfortunately, this effect of exaggeration can carry over into our understanding of the Scriptures.


Let me illustrate this with a modern movie trend: resurrection. In modern movies people die and are resurrected all the time. This trend essentially eliminates the finality of death in writing and entertainment, thereby reducing every fictional character to the level of a video game character with unending multiple lives. This has gone so far as to become absurd, with one recent movie killing off half the human race with a snap of the fingers, and later bringing them all back with another snap. Really, after that what moviegoer is going to care enough about what happens to the characters to pay the price of another ticket?


In my opinion, all those absurd resurrections onscreen tend to reduce the impact of the real resurrections reported in the Scriptures. Lazarus was dead in the tomb for four days when the Lord called him out of the tomb. We are talking a real man, in a real tomb, who was really dead for four real days. His corpse was really stinking - then he came back to life! That's not a video game or a movie. That's in the real world, and that's a-m-a-z-i-n-g! When something in the Scriptures is amazing it is not exaggerated or fictional - it is actually amazing in the full sense of what that word means - because it is REAL!


That brings me to Daniel 8 which prophesies something astonishing! That's the description in the Scripture: astonishing. What does astonishing mean in this context? Here is a pretty good definition from vocabulary.com:


Something astonishing is astounding, staggering, stupefying, amazing, or incredible. It's not something you see every day. This is a pretty strong word. A dog shaking hands is not astonishing, but a dog calling 911 for its owner definitely is. Astonishing things are amazing; they blow your mind. When people first walked on the moon, that was astonishing. Miracles are astonishing. If you say, "Holy cow! I can't believe what I'm seeing," you're probably seeing something astonishing.


In the modern world it is not easy to astonish anyone anymore. Yet, Daniel prophesies an event for our near future that is so totally unusual, extraordinary and shocking as to be astonishing in the fullest sense of the word. Chances are, you will be personally effected by this astonishing event - the entire world will be. Trust me, it will be very much to your advantage to know about this astonishing event in advance, to have some time to get your mind around it before it actually happens.


Join me tonight at Tsiyon.Net at 8:00 PM CST for this special online Tsiyon meeting. We will be premiering our newly re-mastered presentation on Daniel Eight entitled Astonishing Rebellion. Don't miss this!  Please invite your relatives and friends  to sign-up for free access at https://tsiyon.net/register/ to view this with you.


By their very nature astonishing things are hard to believe, but that does not mean they don't happen. All the earlier prophesies of Daniel have happened, and this one will happen too.
