Re:Verse passage – Daniel 11:1-45 (day six)
“The king’s demand is impossible. No one except the gods can tell you your dream, and they do not live here among people.” -Sorcerers, Magicians, and Chaldeans. Daniel 2:11 (NLT)
There are many Old Testament scholars who argue that Daniel is not real history simply because the historical details match up too nicely. No one could have written with that kind of detail in the sixth century BC, they would say.
They draw the same conclusion as Nebuchadnezzar’s sorcerers and magicians, gods don’t reveal mysteries to men. Their practical atheism deny God’s ability to handle the details of human history. The irony is, the purpose of Daniel is to prove the opposite; the only true God is the revealer of mysteries and riddles.
God is in all the details, present and distant future, guiding them to certain ends.
Righteousness forever more.
