The Character of Daniel and The Remnant

The Character of Daniel and The Remnant

We are happy to have a guest presentation to share with our supporters in this post.   Jay Krueger, from Stenshult Health Ministry, located in Sweden (www.stenshult.org), shares with us about the character developed by Daniel and his friends while in captivity in Babylon.   Actually, this process began for them before the captivity with a “purpose” to serve the true God.   Not only is this where success their began,  it is where ours will begin too!   We have serious issues to face just as  Daniel and his friends did.  Join us as we discover their secret to success:

  1. I very much appreciated Brother Jay’s message. The book of Daniel has always been a favorite of mine. May God bless him and his family / ministry.

    Towards the end of his presentation he referred several times to the church as being the bride. I has been brought to my attention in the past what the Bible and SOP says about this and I would like to share if I may 🙂

    And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
    And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Rev. 21:9-10

    In the summer and autumn of 1844 the proclamation, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,” was given. The two classes represented by the wise and foolish virgins were then developed—one class who looked with joy to the Lord’s appearing, and who had been diligently preparing to meet Him; another class that, influenced by fear and acting from impulse, had been satisfied with a theory of the truth, but were destitute of the grace of God. In the parable, when the bridegroom came, “they that were ready went in with him to the marriage.” The coming of the bridegroom, here brought to view, takes place before the marriage. The marriage represents the reception by Christ of His kingdom. The Holy City, the New Jerusalem, which is the capital and representative of the kingdom, is called “the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” Said the angel to John: “Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” “He carried me away in the spirit,” says the prophet, “and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.” Revelation 21:9, 10. Clearly, then, the bride represents the Holy City, and the virgins that go out to meet the bridegroom are a symbol of the church. In the Revelation the people of God are said to be the guests at the marriage supper. Revelation 19:9. If guests, they cannot be represented also as the bride. Christ, as stated by the prophet Daniel, will receive from the Ancient of Days in heaven, “dominion, and glory, and a kingdom;” He will receive the New Jerusalem, the capital of His kingdom, “prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Daniel 7:14; Revelation 21:2. Having received the kingdom, He will come in His glory, as King of kings and Lord of lords, for the redemption of His people, who are to “sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob,” at His table in His kingdom (Matthew 8:11; Luke 22:30), to partake of the marriage supper of the Lamb. {GC 426.2}

  2. Thank you, Julie, for your comment. You are correct in what you write. The bride being the New Jerusalem is a second application of the bride. In the Bible, the virgin, woman, bride is primarily the church. See, e.g., Revelation 22:17, Isaiah 62:5, the last verses of Ephesians 5, and many other Scriptures. This thought is also confirmed in the Spirit of Prophecy. The one does not negate the other.
    God bless you.

  3. Thank you so much for the clarity on this subject. The verses really help, Will have to study this out a little further. I didn’t realize there were two applications to this 🙂

    God bless you also,

    Julie
