My Bible study-buddy and I are currently working our way through the Book of Daniel.
I’m also taking an on-line class on the Book of Revelation.
It didn’t take long to notice some parallels between them.
It almost seems like Daniel is the Old Testament version & Revelation is the New Testament version of the same issue: the ultimte spiritual battle between good & evil.
Studying the great spiritual battle between good & evil isn’t, in my opinion, a topic for the faint of heart. It’s gruesome and terrifying … perhaps even moreso when it leads down a path of self-examination to watch that same battle taking place in one’s own heart.
