Daniel 8 | Understanding the New World Order
The New World Order is an effort to unite the nations and become one global community. However, if this unity is not done under God’s authority, it is under Satan’s. The Bible says that we can do nothing apart from God. Historically, when the nations attempted this unification, it led to the abuse of power and authority. God does want us to be united. Ephesians 4:3 says, “to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” His purpose for humanity has always been to establish an earthly kingdom but under His authority, not our own or Satan’s. The right thing becomes the wrong thing when it is done apart from God. When you examine current events, you find the pieces are being set for this New World Order to emerge. Daniel 8 describes the Antichrist who will reign as Satan’s counterfeit king. He will be the political leader who will unite the nations under the New World Order. Join Pastor Phil Hopper from Abundant Life as he tells you the 4 things you need to know about the ruler of the New World Order. 1. He will deceive man (Daniel 8:23, 25). 2. He will claim to be deity (Daniel 8:25). 3. He will destroy with tyranny (Daniel 8:24-25) 4. He will be deposed quickly (Daniel 8:25, 2 Thessalonians 2:8) Discover more about each point and how today’s events are aligning for these prophetic acts to be fulfilled.

Daniel 9 | How to Pray Life-Changing Prayers
Unfortunately, prayer is often our last resort when it should be our first response. We know we should pray, but when we bow our heads, the words seem to leave our minds. As a result, many of us neglect the practice of prayer. Discover how to pray life-changing prayers by looking at Daniel’s prayer in Daniel 9… There are 4 things to help you begin to pray life-changing prayers. Know God’s Word. The Word of God directed Daniel’s prayer. He read and reflected on God’s promise to His people. As Daniel read the prophet Jeremiah’s words, he believed and prayed according to God’s promises. If you want life-changing prayers, know God’s Word and ask Him to do what is written. Know God’s character. Sadly, many of us don’t see praying as a privilege. Daniel 9 describes God as… Great and awesome (verse 4) Merciful (verse 9) Forgiving (verse 9) When we understand God’s character and see Him as worthy of all praise, we will start to pray life-changing prayers. Confess sins. Once Daniel understood God’s greatness and mercy, he started to see his own sinfulness. He confessed his sin and the sins of the nation. Revival begins with confession and repentance. The purpose of prayer is not to change God’s mind but to change our hearts–this is what confession and repentance do. Plead with God. Daniel pleaded because he understood the heaviness of sin and the power of God. He pleaded, “Hear, forgive, listen, and act!” Prayer is the language of someone dependent upon God and pleads their case. What is the burden you are bearing today?

Father's Day | Letters From Dad
The biblical role of a father is under attack by the enemy of God. Satan hates the image of God in any form. The biblical role of a father displays the image of God. Therefore, Satan seeks to distort and destroy the image and role of fathers. According to National Fatherhood Initiative, 45% of American children are not being raised by their biological fathers, and 25% have no father figure in their lives at all. This attack has become the biggest social problem we face in America—fatherlessness. Fatherlessness makes children… 4x more likely to live in poverty 2x more likely to be a victim of infant mortality 7x more likely to have a teen pregnancy More likely to go to prison and abuse drugs and alcohol The purpose of God’s Son—Jesus Christ—was to show others the Father. The purpose of all God’s sons is to show others the Father—this is the biblical role of a father. ATTENTION FATHERS: Your children are shaping their views of God based on their views of you. THE PROBLEM WE FACE: The enemy is waging war on patriarchy. “Patriarch” means “pillar.” We are called to be a pillar, a patriarch, and Satan has twisted and distorted this role. Because of the sin of Adam, historically, there has been an oppressive and destructive operation in patriarchy. But this was never God’s intention. God created men and women as equals, but not the same. He has given us different roles within the family. Society has… Reversed the roles Rocked the roles Erased the roles As a society, we've made men weak instead of dealing with oppressive and destructive men. As a result, there are no strong men to stand up against the destructive ones. It’s time for fathers… To come home To accept responsibility To reject passivity To lead courageously Join Abundant Life as we explore the attack on the biblical role of fatherhood and dive deeper into what biblical fatherhood looks like… D—A father who DISCIPLINES his children by giving them loving DIRECTION through correction. A—A father who gives plenty of AFFIRMATION and AFFECTION. The greatest inheritance a father can leave his children is not his wealth but his life-giving words. D—A father who defines their children’s DESTINY. Don’t forget to click the “bell” to SUBSCRIBE to get more videos like this to grow your faith!

Daniel 7 [Part 3] | What Is the One-World Government in the Bible?
The one-world government in the Bible is described in the book of Daniel and Revelation. What are the connections between the two books? DANIEL 7 describes a fourth beast different from the others described in previous verses. It is “exceedingly dreadful with its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze.” This beast has ten horns and an eleventh horn comes up from among the ten with a “mouth which spoke pompous words.” This is the Antichrist. REVELATION 13 describes a ruler of a large empire with great power and authority given to him by Satan. This ruler has “seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name… The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.” Both books describe the Antichrist, which contains the power of Satan. Satan’s goal is to establish absolute dominion over all the earth and people. Satan’s desire has always been to be worshiped as God, to sit on the throne of God, and to steal the Kingdom of God. How does he plan to do this? · False christs and false prophets False Messiah-like figures will come in the last days. “For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”—Matthew 24:24 · False worship, signs and wonders The point of the false signs and wonders is to deceive many into false worship. The false prophet will force all humanity into this false worship. “And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?’”—Revelation 13:3-4 IS IT POSSIBLE TO KNOW THE IDENTITY OF THE ANTICHRIST? The Bible gives us clues.

Daniel 7 [PART 2] | What Is Your View of God?
What is your view of God? Do you see Him as a distant deity or a cosmic Santa? We need an accurate view of the Lord Almighty. We must get rid of any error in our thinking about who God is and ask Him to explode the boxes we have put Him in to have an accurate view of ourselves and the world. Your view of God will never be clear until you see Him Biblically. God has preserved His Word so that you can know and see Him. He is not a God of confusion but of clarity. Pastor Chad Glover says this, “You need a Biblical vision of who God is so you can accurately see things the way they are meant to be seen.” 7s | Daniel 7 Reveals 7 Ways to See God 1. See His eternality 2. See His purity 3. See His authority 4. See His majesty 5. See His victory 6. See Christ clearly 7. See His royalty Does this align with your view of God? When you see God accurately, it impacts the way you live. It causes your heart to swell with adoration, and the only response is to worship. Join us at Abundant Life as we seek His Kingdom first and discover the Biblical truth of who God is.

Daniel 7 [Part 1] | Understanding Biblical Prophecy and the 4 Beasts
What do those 4 beasts represent? What is their significance? Pastor Phil at Abundant Life Church explains and applies Daniel 7 to our culture today. What Did 4 Beasts Represent? 1. One like a lion, which represented Babylon 2. One like a bear, which represented Persia 3. One like a leopard, which represented Greece 4. The fourth was “dreadful and terrible,” which represented a “reborn” Roman Empire. This will beast will come at the time of the end with an alliance of ten nations—led by the “little horn,” the antichrist What do all these kingdoms have to do with us? Everything. We are all part of a kingdom. We are either part of the world’s kingdom, which eventually falls or part of God’s Kingdom, which is everlasting. Who Has Dominion? The Bible says that, because of the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, Satan now has dominion in this world. He has hijacked the kingdoms of this world and deceived many. But the Bible also tells us that these kingdoms will fall. Then the King of Kings—Jesus Christ—will establish a kingdom on earth of everlasting dominion. Who Is Your King? Which Kingdom Do You Serve? Are you fully surrendered to the lordship of Christ? The Kingdom of God has to do with the rule of Jesus in your heart. The heart is the throne room of your life. We all have more than one allegiance, loyalty, and loves. The question is this: Which one is your priority? Join us at Abundant Life as we seek His Kingdom first and discover how to set Him as ruler in our hearts.

Why Was Daniel Thrown into the Lions' Den?
Daniel in the Lions’ Den - Daniel 6 (Picture of Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand) Daniel 6 takes place in 536 B.C. The Babylonians have fallen and the Persian Empire has risen. Daniel did what he had always done. He chose to stand up and wound up in a lions’ den. Proverbs 28:1, “The righteous are bold as a lion.” Daniel is now a very elderly man, but God calls on him one more time to take a stand. The lions’ den is a place of darkness where we are devoured by fear, worry, and anxiety prepared by our enemy. 1 Peter 5:8, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” Why was Daniel as “bold as a lion” even in a den of lions? 1) Daniel had the character of God. Daniel 6:1-5, It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom one hundred and twenty satraps, to be over the whole kingdom; 2 and over these, three governors, of whom Daniel was one, that the satraps might give account to them, so that the king would suffer no loss. 3 Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm. 4 So the governors and satraps sought to find some charge against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find no charge or fault, because he was faithful; nor was there any error or fault found in him. 5 Then these men said, “We shall not find any charge against this Daniel unless we find it against him concerning the law of his God.” Daniel’s godly integrity made him a threat to his enemies! They hated him for his honesty and integrity and burned with envy and jealousy. They feared Daniel. (See Proverbs 28:1) Proverbs 28:1, “The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Media only) Because of Daniel’s godly character, he never changed his “colors.” There are many “chameleon” Christians in the world today that try to “blend in” to their surroundings.” (Video of chameleon changing colors) Daniel 6:6-10, So these governors and satraps thronged before the king, and said thus to him: “King Darius, live forever! 7 All the governors of the kingdom, the administrators and satraps, the counselors and advisors, have consulted together to establish a royal statute and to make a firm decree, that whoever petitions any god or man for thirty days, except you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions. 8 Now, O king, establish the decree and sign the writing, so that it cannot be changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which does not alter.” 9 Therefore King Darius signed the written decree.10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days. 2) Daniel had confidence in God. Even when he knew a law had been signed making it illegal for him to pray to his God under penalty of death, he continued to do it with his windows wide open for all to see! Daniel’s courage to live for God came from his confidence in God. He was faithful to God because he was full of faith in God. When you trust in God’s sovereignty, you can live with certainty in a world gone crazy. Daniel was confident in God’s sovereign control over his life. He knew God’s plan for him was perfect even if the cost was high. Daniel 6:11-17, Then these men assembled and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God. 12 And they went before the king, and spoke concerning the king’s decree: “Have you not signed a decree that every man who petitions any god or man within thirty days, except you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions?” The king answered and said, “The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which does not alter.” 13 So they answered and said before the king, “That Daniel, who is one of the captives from Judah, does not show due regard for you, O king, or for the decree that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day.” 14 And the king, when he heard these words, was greatly displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him; and he labored till the going down of the sun to deliver him. 15 Then these men approached the king, and said to the king, “Know, O king, that it is the law of the Medes and Persians that no decree or statute which the king establishes may be changed.” 16 So the king gave the command, and they brought Daniel and cast him into the den of lions. But the king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Your God, whom you serve continually, He will deliver you.” 17 Then a stone was brought and laid on the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the signets of his lords, that the purpose concerning Daniel might not be changed. 3) Daniel was consecrated to God.You are consecrated to whatever you are willing to die for. You do not have a faith worth living for if you don’t have a faith worth dying for. “A faith that can be destroyed by suffering is not faith.” –Richard Wurmbrand Daniel 6:18-23, Now the king went to his palace and spent the night fasting; and no musicians were brought before him. Also his sleep went from him. 19 Then the king arose very early in the morning and went in haste to the den of lions. 20 And when he came to the den, he cried out with a lamenting voice to Daniel. The king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?” 21 Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever! 22 My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.” 23 Now the king was exceedingly glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no injury whatever was found on him, because he believed in his God. God promises a resurrection when we choose a life of consecration. The prize will be worth whatever the price.

When God Crashes Your Party
May 15, 2022 When God Crashes Your Party - Daniel 5 Daniel 5 records the events of October 12, 539 B.C. – the fall of Babylon to the Medes and Persians. Daniel 5:1-4, Belshazzar the king made a great feast for a thousand of his lords, and drank wine in the presence of the thousand. While he tasted the wine, Belshazzar gave the command to bring the gold and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken from the temple which had been in Jerusalem, that the king and his lords, his wives, and his concubines might drink from them. Then they brought the gold vessels that had been taken from the temple of the house of God which had been in Jerusalem; and the king and his lords, his wives, and his concubines drank from them. They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold and silver, bronze and iron, wood and stone. Death was literally knocking at the door, but Belshazzar was partying when he should have been praying. He knew Babylon was being besieged, but he had a false sense of security inside the fortified walls of the city. In a defiant act against God, Belshazzar got the sacred cups stolen by Nebuchadnezzar to use for “booze.” He was using for wickedness what God designed for worship. He was using the sacred for something sinful. Belshazzar was in God’s face. When you get in God’s face, you are about to lose God’s grace. Belshazzar had crossed the line. When you reject the grace of God, all that is left is the judgment of God. God literally crashed Belshazzar’s party and the “handwriting was on the wall.” Daniel 5:5-8, In the same hour the fingers of a man’s hand appeared and wrote opposite the lampstand on the plaster of the wall of the king’s palace; and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote. Then the king’s countenance changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his hips were loosened and his knees knocked against each other. The king cried aloud to bring in the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers. The king spoke, saying to the wise men of Babylon, “Whoever reads this writing, and tells me its interpretation, shall be clothed with purple and have a chain of gold around his neck; and he shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.” Now all the king’s wise men came, but they could not read the writing, or make known to the king its interpretation. Belshazzar pictures the one who lives as if this life will last forever, and this life is all that matters. They reign temporarily as kings over little kingdoms made of dust that will one day rust, decay, and fade away! Luke 12:20, But God said to him, “Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?” Mark 8:36-37, For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? Daniel 5:13, 16-18, Then Daniel was brought in before the king. The king spoke, and said to Daniel, “Are you that Daniel who is one of the captives from Judah, whom my father the king brought from Judah?...And I have heard of you, that you can give interpretations and explain enigmas. Now if you can read the writing and make known to me its interpretation, you shall be clothed with purple and have a chain of gold around your neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.” Then Daniel answered, and said before the king, “Let your gifts be for yourself, and give your rewards to another; yet I will read the writing to the king, and make known to him the interpretation. O king, the Most High God gave Nebuchadnezzar your father a kingdom and majesty, glory and honor. Daniel 5:22, But you his son, Belshazzar, have not humbled your heart, although you knew all this. Why did God crash Belshazzar’s party? 1) He chose not to remember God. (See Romans 1:18-25) 2) He chose not to revere God. (See Proverbs 15:25) Belshazzar pictures the one who deliberately rejects God’s grace and mercy. When you reject God’s forgiveness and grace, all that is left is God’s wrath and God’s judgment. (See Matthew 12:31) Matthew 12:31, Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. Daniel 5:24-30, Then the fingers of the hand were sent from Him, and this writing was written. 25 “And this is the inscription that was written: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. 26 This is the interpretation of each word. MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it; 27 TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting; 28 PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.” 29 Then Belshazzar gave the command, and they clothed Daniel with purple and put a chain of gold around his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom. 30 That very night Belshazzar, king of the Chaldeans, was slain. If you die without Christ, the “handwriting is on the wall.” Like Belshazzar, your life will be judged by God — “weighed and found wanting.”

Do You Struggle with Pride?
C.S. Lewis said, “Pride leads to every other vise: it is the complete anti-God state of mind.” We all struggle with pride. It is God’s mercy to rob us of it. Pride whispers, “You don’t need God. You’re the king. You can fix yourself.” Sadly, pride robs us of joy, security, peace, and so much more. It is God’s heart to restore all that pride robs from us. In Daniel 4, God teaches us about the issue of pride. King Nebuchadnezzar has a dream that reveals a problem he faces: pride. Because we each deal with pride, we each have a decision to make, just like Nebuchadnezzar. Turn to the one true God and follow Him or continue to follow ourselves. The choice is ours. Discover how God humbled Nebuchadnezzar and restored what pride stole from him.

Jesus Is the Resurrection and the Life | Do You Believe This?
Jesus is the resurrection and the life, but what does that mean? It means God takes what is dead and makes it alive. Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25-26) Jesus, having all authority, is the only One with the power of resurrection. The story of Lazarus’ death and resurrection is a magnificent display of Jesus’ authority. In John 11, Jesus proved He was the Anointed One, the Son of God. This was His last miracle before He went to the cross to be the resurrection and the life for those who believe. He rose Lazarus FROM the grave before He headed TO the grave. But what does this mean for you? “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”—Romans 6:23 Lazarus is a picture of us. We are dead in our transgressions and sin, but Jesus’ death covers us so that we can be made alive! Discover your story in the story of Lazarus. It is time to be made alive and be free from the wages of sin! There is one critical question you must answer… Do you believe this? At Abundant Life, we want to see your life changed by Jesus.

How to Persevere Through the Fiery Trials of Life

Sadly, we often think that as a Believer we should have a life of ease. Jesus said He came to give us abundant life, yes. But this does not mean He gives us a life free from adversity.

Who is the King over your life?
The theme of the book of Daniel is God’s sovereignty. In Chapter 2, Daniel correctly prophesies four world kingdoms in their successive order that have already risen and fallen and two world kingdoms that will emerge in the last days. Kingdoms rise and fall and nations come and go, but there is only one kingdom that will last eternally—the kingdom of King Jesus. Who is the King over your life?

How do you thrive living in an ungodly society?
Even though Daniel didn’t have power in Babylon, he had profound influence. Daniel thrived while living in an ungodly society, and he serves as an example for us today. What steps are you taking to pursue a holy life in the Babylonian culture of our day? Are you praying for wisdom and walking in godliness? Daniel pursued holiness with humility, and he never lost hope that God would be faithful to do everything He had promised.

What Dilemma Are You Facing?
We live in a Babylonian culture of “flexible” truth, because the enemy has had the same play since Genesis 3: convincing Adam and Eve to doubt God’s authority and reject His truth. In Daniel 1, we see Daniel and his companions faced with the same dilemma: would they reject what was right to save their lives? But like Daniel, we can respond to our own moral dilemmas by standing on the foundation of God’s truth to defy the cultural norms, deny ourselves sinful pleasures, and decry the sinful wickedness in our world — and find blessing in obedience.

Who Do You Belong To? This Is Your Identity…
Who do you belong to? This is an important question because who you are is defined by whose you are. We have forgotten who we are because we have forgotten who God is! God made us, and He has authority over us – He alone defines us. From Daniel’s captivity in 605 B.C. to the 21st century, a distorted identity will always lead to death and captivity. Our Babylonian civilization is in open rebellion against God’s image and kingdom. If you’re a parent, it’s vitally important to be proactive in teaching your child whose they are, raising them in biblical community, and training them personally to put God in His rightful place in their lives.

What Does It Mean to Live by God's Authority?
We live in a “Babylonian” society where the spirit of Babylon is fully alive, and it's battling for the hearts and minds of America’s youth. Like Daniel, we must prepare our children for an authority crisis! God alone is our authority, but society is teaching our children there is no higher authority than SELF. How are you planning to protect your family against the Babylonian society in which we live? It's time to pray and prepare!
