    Hi Debra, You asked 3 months ago about the word eunuchs. Well the simplest way I can explain it, is as what our Animals Shelters do to the Animals to stop reproducing by neutering. An eunuchs is a neutered male. The Kings usually do this to protect their collection of women wives and concubines etc . So the captive males were all neutered. Daniel too.

    This is the fasting period as Daniel and the 3 fasted, by not eating fats and drinking wine, after 10 days got wisdom, knowledge and understanding of vision and dreams from God. We should be able to have faith of receiving great things from God before the end of this period just as Daniel. I believe.
  • Debra
    In verse 3 - the word eunuchs-
    And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king's seed , and of the princes;

    Also verse 11: Then said Daniel to Melzar whom the Prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hannaniah, Mi'shael, and Azari'ah.

    Can anyone please help me understand those verses. Thank you.

    At this point in TIME, Daniel and his friends are in a foreign country as slaves. The sin's of their own country Judah / Israel has received the promise /wrath of Jehovah / GOD, and through war (using heathens) GOD allowed these three men to be taken as slave into a foreign country. So we see GOD (when HE decides) shall release his wrath on a nation that will not repent, also HE protects a few.
  • Truth From the Book
    You have probably heard of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, but these were the heathen names, honoring false gods, that were given to them. Daniel 1:11

    Verse 12~Daniel and the 3 Hebrews risked angering the king, but they refused to be molded no matter what pressure they faced.

    Sunshine (cont. 2); The Prophecies tell about what kind of kingdoms shall rule over the earth up to the coming of Christ and His establishing the Kingdom of God for ever upon the earth. The effects of every kingdom that has been till now, are all still in the world; although having been subdued by the one's that succeeded them. When Jesus comes the dominion of the heathen shall be taken from them.

    Sunshine (cont.); Since the time of the carrying away of Babylon, Israel has been under the domination of the kingdoms of the Gentiles, and scattered to every Nation under heaven. The Book of Daniel shows us many things about how God still raises up His servants amidst these humiliated conditions among enemy Nations; and shows by Dreams and Visions the Political State of the world up to the end.

    Sunshine; Daniel was a young man when he was brought to Babylon from Judah. This signified the end of the times of the kingdom of the sons of David, and the beginning of the times of the Gentiles. Because of Israel and Judah's sinning and refusal of the faith of their Covenant God "till there was no remedy," what was once God's plan for Israel and the Nations under Israel was forfeited.
  • Sunshine
    I am still trying to understand fully about Daniel can somebody shed some more light on The Book of Daniel for me ?
  • Félix
    Daniel had the faith to Go and was determine to serve the true God in Babylon
  • Drbra
    He was a very strong man of God
  • BSP
    Verse 3 talks about the sons that were of royal descent being taken to Babylon. At 2 Kings 20:16 and 18 he was told that some of his sons would be taken to Babylon. This is one way in which we see that prophecy was fulfilled.

    In my opinion Daniel and the others have a real good relationship with their God. To deny them selves from the King's meat and to have pulse and water prove that All things are possible with God and all praise and glory belongs to His name. My prayer is that every believer would seek to honor the Lord in everything we do and we would follow the true examples of Daniel and the other.
  • A disciple
    BSP; I appreciate your notes, and how you put simply and straight forward the way we can apply the Word to ourselves. To your point about Daniel's determined consecration to God; considering his circumstances, and how he was so firmly resolved in his faith and his integrity of heart toward God; we get a better idea why God so loved Daniel and counted him as the rarest kind of men among His saints.
  • BSP
    Verse 8: Daniel had already determined before he faced trials and tests that he would not defile himself. Likewise, we need to prepare our hearts and minds before we face trials.
  • Zoe
    And so it says “So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days.” I like it. It proves that they really did say that they put shadrach,meshach,and abendigo went to the fires den.

    Haley; meat doesn't always necessarily refer to flesh: in the old English it was often used for food in general. For the Hebrews to eat food and drink wine from the Gentiles; which was not sanctified by the priest to be kosher; was prohibited because of the sign of the law and the covenant to be separated and holy unto the LORD. The dietary laws were for teaching the coming new things in Christ.
  • Haley
    In verse 5, it says that king Nebuchadnezzar gave the Israelites his meat to eat and his wine to drink. I understand why the meat was a big deal but I do not understand why the wine was. If someone could explain that to me I would greatly appreciate it.

    Edna; the story of Daniel the Prophet is amazing and wonderful! Did you realize, that Daniel and Ezekiel were both carried away with the captivity? When we read how great things God gave to them to do and to write; (while under subjection to the heathen!); it should give us all strength in understanding our own times, and how we can serve the Lord powerfully despite humiliating life circumstances.
  • Edna
    I praise God Daniel was stand fast in his faith.While in the camp of unbelivers he depend on the Lord. Greater his the Lord that is in us then he that is in the world Daniel was not one to give over to gentiles way of life .God gave him wisdom and Knowledge in his life and he was accounted worhty

    God inspired Holy men of God to wrote the Bible. I believe almost all the men that wrote it was a Jew. So the Bible is written by Jewish people. Does that mean God chosen Jews to be his people. I say yes. Through out the Bible, Genesis through Malachi, the Gentiles were not part of that group, they were not chosen of God. But, after the Jews stone Stephen in Acts, all things changed. Glory Glory

    Irene123 just go to Ezekiel 13. It speaks of preachers who dream up their own divine salvation and cover Gods outreached arms and hide His way of salvation. If you are meant to see the truth you'll see it. Seek the truth and don't believe the lie to fly because there is only one salvation and that's Gods way.
  • Bud
    Irene 123: It does not say I hate that teach the fly away to save souls. READ Ezekiel 13: 20
  • Irene123
    To Word - I am just, simply very curious - no judgment; where do you read, "God says he hates those that teach the fly away to save souls". I would like to see it.
  • Word
    Irene123 yes 2 out of all of Those in the desert makes you think. all these lazy people who never read the bible who go to church singing we all going to fly away and leave these saints, the elect, to go through the test but the lazy get to fly away while the elect who have already shown God they are loyal and been chosen to stand? God says He hates those who teach the fly away to save souls.
  • Katrina
    Daniel held steadfast to what he knew that's why they didn't want to have no part in what they were partaking in .there food or wine that is why they receive Favor from God he gave them wisdom,knowledge,and understanding.
