Agents of Babylon | Daniel and the Hebrew Hostages | How to refocus on God in times of uncertainty & crisis
In this course Dr. David Jeremiah shares his heart and focuses on the defining moment in the lives of Daniel and his three friends taken to Babylon as captives between 605 and 587 B.C. that prepared them for a lifetime of lasting impact. We will learn the secret of standing up to power in the worst of situations.
Babylon is on the rise! Throughout history, Babylon has been a symbol of the world’s worst evils—extreme decadence, infinite cruelty, ravenous power, and implacable contention against God. And nowhere in the Bible do we get a more vivid picture of the malevolent nature of Babylon than in the ancient book of Daniel.
Teaching with prophetic markers and visions—many of which have already been fulfilled—the parallels between the world described in the book of Daniel and the world we are living in today are positively staggering.
In fact, a close examination of the prophecies described in Daniel reveals indisputable evidence that the ancient spirit of Babylon is not only on the rise but that the end times are much closer than we think.
In Agents of Babylon, noted prophecy expert Dr. David Jeremiah explores the prophecies, dreams, and vision outlined in the book of Daniel, explains what they mean, and shows us how they apply to our world today, so we can better prepare for what is to come.
Agents of Babylon not only offers an in-depth exploration of the characters and prophecies contained in the book of Daniel but also includes a dramatic retelling of Scripture that brings ancient prophecy to light like never before.
The prophecy is clear. Babylon is ascending, and Daniel’s dreams contain the clues to weathering the nightmare that is yet to come.
Get ready. The end is closer than you think.
