Troubled by Scripture

Daniel Bible Background

12.06.2017 – Old Testament: Dan 7.28

To read the Bible in a year, read Daniel 7–8 on December 6, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

The Lord gave Daniel a great vision, but while it showed the Lord reigning and it even revealed beforehand the ascension of Jesus into heaven, it also showed an evil power attacking the saints of God. After Daniel wrote down the vision, he then wrote,

“This is the end of the account. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts greatly troubled me, and my countenance changed; but I kept the matter in my heart” (Daniel 7.28). 

Have you read the Bible and it troubled you? You might have been troubled because you did not fully understand its message or you might have been troubled because you did understand its message. Do not fret yourself, you are in good company. Daniel would know precisely how you thought about it.

Questions:

  • What troubles you in Scripture?
  • Are you troubled because you do not live it?
  • Are you troubled because you do live it, but some people you love do not?
