Faith Under Fire

Many of us have heard the familiar stories of Daniel from childhood: brave, committed, and obedient, Daniel held to his convictions, interpreted dreams, and faced the lions’ den. But does our familiarity extend to the real hero of the story?

In this series examining Daniel’s faith under the fire of trial, Alistair Begg explains that at the heart of these familiar stories is a good and sovereign God who works powerfully for the good of His people and the glory of His Name. We can be encouraged that the same God who reigned over the events in Daniel’s ... More 

God of the Exiles

Although they were captives in Babylon, Daniel and his friends submitted to their captors through changes in location, education, and even their names. When required to surrender the dietary practices that marked them as God’s own people, however, they resisted. As Alistair Begg leads us through this passage, we see that it provides not so much a strategy to cope with trying times, but comfort and encouragement to be faithful. The focus of the story is not Daniel, but the God that he worshipped.

God is Still on the Throne

The book of Daniel opens with Jerusalem besieged by Babylon and God’s people under the control of a pagan king. As Alistair Begg leads us through the conditions of Daniel’s captivity and Daniel’s response to those circumstances, we are reminded to keep our focus on the sovereignty of God. In the midst of our own persecution, we can look to the example of Christ and rest in God’s promises to us.

His Kingdom is Forever

Nebuchadnezzar demanded that his advisors not only interpret his dream, but tell him what the dream was about. While this was impossible for humans, the God Daniel worshipped is able to reveal mysteries, and He empowered His servant to fulfill the king’s request. In this message, Alistair Begg explains that the main point of the dream is that all of human history is under God’s control. A believer’s ultimate security is in the promise Daniel conveyed and Jesus fulfilled: an everlasting Kingdom that supplants all earthly realms and overcomes death.

There is a God in Heaven

Troubled by nightmares, King Nebuchadnezzar was unable to interpret their meaning, and he lashed out in rage. God answered Daniel’s prayer for help, and the meaning of the dreams was made clear. As we examine the text, Alistair Begg turns our attention to the everlasting nature of God’s kingdom established on the Rock that is Jesus Christ. When we align our thinking and habits with the truth of His Kingship, we can proclaim the Gospel through our lives.

No God Like Yahweh

The story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego is familiar, but behind it lies the age-old conflict between men in rebellion against God and those who submit to His rule. Alistair Begg explains that the three men responded in faith because they were convinced that God had spoken, that He meant what He said, and that they could commit themselves to His care. God is able to deliver His people, and we must not compromise even if the cost is our lives.

Serving God in the Furnace

How do we respond to persecution? In part, our reaction can be determined by our view of God’s sovereignty. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to bow down to idols, and faced a fiery furnace as a result. Alistair Begg explores the details of God’s miraculous salvation of His servants and urges us to submit to and serve God with our bodies and lives, especially in the face of difficulty.
