Daniel 11: 23, 24

Daniel 11: 23, 24

Hi boys and girls! I am the primary writer for the articles you will read in this feature of our newsletter. My name is Gabrielle Whyte. Today I am going to be writing about Daniel 11. The Bible verses we will focus on are Daniel 11:23 and 24. Their words say the following: “And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall be strong with a small people. He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province: and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.”

 Now, these verses are talking about Rome. Within the time they speak of, Rome wanted to take over the world. But, instead of fighting the other countries of the world, it worked deceitfully by giving them gifts to charm them. This action made it easier for Rome to rule the world. Let me try to explain how it all happened. You see, some countries would go to Rome for protection; because it was a bigger and more powerful country to them. These nations would then become its satellite state. A satellite state is a country controlled by a bigger more powerful country, now in that case Rome, like I described is the bigger more powerful country and the other countries are, by this means, controlled by it.

Let us review: Daniel 11: 23 and 24 tells us how Rome achieved to rule the world. Its method was different from the other nations before; because of the gifts and charms it used. Isn’t it amazing, boys and girls, how the Bible tells us all these information in just two verses? I think it is. 

Anyways, boys and girls, that is all for today! I hope you enjoyed this writing and learned something new 

Have a blessed day
