An Exile's Dreams

July 25, 2021 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This week we end our series of Daniel's writings with a survey of the dreams and visions he shares in chapters 7-12. Here we will find 3 things God wants us to know about the end times.

An Exile's Priorities

July 18, 2021 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This week we look to the famed story of Daniel and the lion’s den in Daniel chapter 6. Read the story and consider the following questions: why did Daniel choose the lions den? What do you think you would do? What are a few things said about Daniel in Daniel 6 that all Christians should desire be said about them?

An Exile's Treasure

July 11, 2021 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This week we examine the famous story of the writing on the wall in Daniel chapter 5. Read the story and determine what mistakes Belshazzar made. Prayerfully examine the 3 words the Lord wrote on the wall and Daniel's interpretation of each. What might God be trying to say to you with these?

An Exile's Warning

July 4, 2021 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This week we look at Daniel 4 which is written by King Nebuchadnezzar. He receives another warning in a dream about a simple truth that he just doesn’t know yet. It’s a truth we all struggle with at times-but knowing it makes all the difference. Read the chapter and consider what this truth is and why it’s so important.

An Exile's Worship

June 27, 2021 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This week we are looking at the famous story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and the fiery furnace. Take some time and read Daniel 3. Why does Nebuchadnezzar build the statue and make the demands that he does? How do our three heroes respond and why? What does their behavior tell you about what they valued most in life?

An Exile's Fear

June 20, 2021 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This week we examine Daniel 2 and see how Daniel reacts to a scare situation. How do you react to fear? What does or would your reaction to fearful situations tell the world about God? If you read ahead, read through Daniel 2 and consider how Daniel handles the situation and how his handling of it affects King Nebuchadnezzar's attitude towards God.

An Exile's Purpose

June 13, 2021 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This week we continue our study in Daniel. We will see his first test when he is asked to do something that went against his faith. Read Daniel 1:8-21 and consider how he conducted his "protest" and what happened as a result.

An Exile's Identity

June 6, 2021 • Pastor Seth Amerine

This week we begin a new study in the book of Daniel. Read Daniel 1:1-7 and pay attention to what Babylon does to try to indoctrinate Daniel and his three companions and consider how these same things happen today to Christians in the world.
