Daniel Chapter 6 (6th century B.C.)
The biblical story of Daniel in the lion’s den contains wisdom for today. Ever thought, while Daniel spent only one night in the lion’s den he spent his entire life in captivity in the palaces of pagan rulers!
From 17 years old to his death at nearly 90 his life was spent serving pagan Kings. By dedication to Godly principles and his character, Daniel lead his captures to the one true God.
To the serious bible student, the book of Daniel is the key to understanding of other scriptures.
That’s why knowing Daniels character can help pick political candidates in 2016.
It’s these traits, King Darius saw that convinced him to make Daniel the 1st president over his kingdom.
He was Trusted
It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom a hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom; and over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage. (Daniel 6:1-2)
He was Preferred
Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, (Dan 6:3) an excellent spirit was in him; the king thought to set him over the whole realm … Daniel was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him (Dan 6:4)
Evil conspiracy against Daniel (Dan 6: 5-9)
Covetous men, knowing they could not find fault against Daniel, unless they find fault against him concerning the law of his God conspired.(Dan 6:5-9)
After King Darius signed the decree, Daniel knew the danger he faced, but in obedience to his God,Daniel went into his house and the windows being open toward Jerusalem, prayed and gave thanks God. (Dan 6:10) Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.(Dan 6:11) Then the king, when he heard their words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and the King labored till the going down of the sun to deliver him. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, The God whom you serve continually, He will deliver thee. (Dan 6:11-16 for context) again the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou serve continually, able to deliver thee from the lions? Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever. My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me for innocence was found in me; and also before you, O king, have I done no hurt(Dan 6: 21-22)
King Darius believed in Daniels God:
King Darius then made a decree; “In every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: He is the living God, steadfast for ever, and His kingdom shall not be destroyed, and His dominion is everlasting.” (Dan 6:26)
