Daniel 6 Daniel in the Lion’s Den

Daniel sermon series

This much beloved text has been a source of great encouragement to the saints for very obvious reasons. But it is true that popular presentations of this story too often focus on man rather than the Lord. The way this story is told in Daniel 6 spotlights the major concern of this text which is to show that the Lord vindicates His law and His worship and the power of His kingdom.

Daniel 5 Handwriting on the Wall

Daniel sermon series

As king Belshazzar led his nobles in a night of revelry and worship of the false gods of Babylon, suddenly a hand appeared and inscribed an ominous message upon the ballroom walls. The king called for Daniel to bring forth the interpretation of the mysterious message. Functioning as the mouthpiece of Christ, Daniel brought a message of rebuke to this foolish king and then translated the handwriting on the wall, proclaiming immanent judgment upon Babylon. That very night, 12 October 539, the Medes and Persians stormed the city and executed Christ’s judgment upon this wicked nation.

The Humbling of a Proud King

Daniel sermon series

Daniel 4
Although Nebuchadnezzar had made statements of respect about the Lord, he had never really “recognized” the Lord as the sovereign King of kings. A powerful monarch in his own right, Nebuchadnezzar believed his supremacy was special and reflected the power of his own glory. In the very moment Nebuchadnezzar was admiring his own handiwork in Babylon, the Lord took away his sovereignty and drove him out to the field to act like a beast until he had been humbled enough to acknowledge the total sovereignty of the Most High God. Coming to know the Lord’s sovereignty in such a humbling way led this once proud king to sing anthems of praise to the King of kings. The enduring message of this text is that the knowledge of divine sovereignty leads the penitent to humbly adore the Most High God of Heaven.

The Most High God

Daniel sermon series

Daniel 3
Nebuchadnezzar received the answer to the question he sarcastically posed to Daniel’s friends (v15) and then he soberly stated it in verse 29 saying, “there is no other god who is able to deliver in this way.” The key words to focus on here are the words “no other god” and “in this way.” What Nebuchadnezzar learned from this miracle was that the VERY WAY in which the Lord delivered his servants Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, showed that the He alone was the MOST HIGH GOD.

The Supremacy of Divine Revelation

Daniel sermon series

Daniel 2
At the heart of this great prophecy about the future is the substantial point that divine revelation is supreme. After Daniel received the substance and interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, he paused to thank the Lord saying, “Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, For wisdom and power belong to Him” (v21). The supremacy of this divine revelation points beyond itself to the Lord Himself who is supreme, the One who reveals profound and hidden things and the things that are in the darkness (v22).
