    I looked up "Esdras" in Wikipedia, since I didn't want to spend the time actually reading in it; and what I read, I didn't like. It apparently has some so-called visions of Ezra, and him asking questions of God; which in my opinion don't match up to the kind of man of God Ezra really was. For example; how could he think that misery and punishment is unjust for a people who obstinately refuse God?

    The book of Dan. IS prophetic, as it tells of the future to and including Rev. Just as Eze. is prophetic. Both of these books tell of some of the same events as Rev., albeit in different wording.

    We are reminded in this chapter that we should be careful to give thanks and praise to God for all things because it is only through God that we have accomplished and obtained everything that we have. God owns everything and He gives to whomsoever and when He pleases.
