Lesson 1069: Foreshadows, Pt.1
Events in Daniel foreshadowed things to come.
Nebuchadnezzar is a picture of the future Antichrist.
1 John 2:18, 22; 1 John 4:3; 2 John 7
Daniel’s king said “Worship me or die”. Antichrist will say the same. Rev.13:15, 20:4
Daniel’s king oppressed Israel using political & religious power. Antichrist will do the same during Tribulation. Rev.13:7 Nebuchadnezzar’s Golden Image is a picture of the Image of the Beast. 2 Thes.2:3-7
Rev.13:14-15 make an image of the beast who had the sword wound, and yet lived. He was permitted to give a spirit to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast could both speak and cause whoever would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
Nebuchadnezzar’s Herald says when to worship. Antichrist’s False Prophet will do the same. Rev.13:11-17
In Daniel, 3 Jews refused to worship the image, and survived the fire.
In Revelation, 144,000 sealed servants will be protected by God. Rev.7:3-8, Rev.14:1-3, 15:2; 1 Pet 1:3-6
