In this strange story Daniel has a vision and meets a heavenly being – an angel? – who has been sent by God to speak to him and explain what is going to happen in the world. But this being was held up by another supernatural being – one who is in opposition to God.
An insight into a world beyond the natural one, that raises questions about our understanding of what is really going on.
Reading: Daniel 10:1-11:1
Questions to think about:
The vital importance of the resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:12-20)
- What do you think of the idea of supernatural beings affecting what goes on in the world around us?
- What confidence do you take from the fact that Jesus has defeated all powers that stood against him (Col 2:13-14)?
- Does having an awareness of supernatural / spiritual forces affect how you see the world? If so, in what way?
