(This video is sponsored by IADPA,
where each book is a new world) Sabbath School LIKE presents the series ‘DANIEL’ From Jerusalem to Babylon – Lesson 2 Let us open the wonderful book of Daniel Some 600 years before the birth of Jesus, Judah, the nation where Christ would be born
and fulfill His earthly ministry, was invaded by a powerful king named Nebuchadnezzar, monarch of one of the greatest and most fascinating empires that has ever existed: Babylon. In that invasion, King Nebuchadnezzar told Ashpenaz, the head of his eunuchs, to recruit from the children of Israel the most
handsome, blameless, and intelligent young men to take them, so to speak, to the “University of Babylon” and teach them the language and culture of the empire, and thus prepare them to serve in the royal palace. Among that group of young captives were Daniel
and his friends Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. who were torn from their families and forced to make a long journey through
the wilderness to the ostentatious empire of Babylon. In spite of their youth, these four courageous Hebrews decided to be faithful to God above all, and that decision, as you can imagine, led them to face great trials and challenges
since their arrival in Babylon. But they overcame every challenge, and after three years they graduated with honors from the “University of Babylon”, far above all their peers. And in that context, comes this week’s question: Why was the experience of Daniel and his friends different from that of other young Hebrews? Firstly, Because THEY NEVER DOUBTED
THAT GOD IS IN CONTROL There are times in life when anyone might think
that everything has gotten out of control, we might even wonder
where God was when all these things happened to me? That was most certainly the experience
of a large number of young Jews who were torn from their homes
to be taken captive to Babylon. But in the midst of the tragedy and despair, there were four young people who never doubted
that God was in control of things: Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. In fact, Daniel relates the invasion in the following way: “In the third year of the reign
of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon
came to Jerusalem and besieged it. And the Lord delivered Jehoiakim
king of Judah into his hand, along with some of the articles
from the temple of God.” (Daniel 1:1-2, NIV) Do you see? King Nebuchadnezzar may have believed that he defeated not only the Jews,
but also Jehovah their God. Many young Hebrews may have
thought exactly the same thing. But God does not lose any battles. Daniel claims that it was the Lord Himself who delivered His people into the hands of the enemy king. And that is a different view of reality. God never loses control. Having that very clear in our lives means
to recognize that God is sovereign. And that is very, very important in the life of a Christian because it helps us to see the whole picture. Think of the image of a mother
screaming loudly at her little boy and pulling him violently by the neck. Initially we might think that this is an abusive mother, and we would even flood the social networks publishing the photo and denouncing
the abuse of this woman. But when we enlarge the image,
when we saw the whole picture, we discovered that the child was about
to fall from a 20-story building. The mother’s scream and violent
reaction saved the little boy’s life. And now we understand that instead of being a villain … -“She is a real heroine” -“A supermom!”
-“Like my mom” I think we can understand it better now. The knowledge of the Sovereignty of God made the difference between these four young Hebrews and the rest of the captives, because that knowledge enlarged their vision,
allowed them to see the whole picture. They most certainly heard the prophet Jeremiah announce the Babylonian captivity, and they knew God’s promise: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place.” (Jeremiah 29:10, NIV) They were not taken by surprise by the tragedy. Daniel and his friends knew that the same God who centuries ago allowed Joseph
to be taken to Egypt as a slave and then made a prisoner,
to finally make him the nation’s viceroy, was in control in this dark chapter of the Jewish nation. The second thing that allowed them
to have a different experience was that THEY DECIDED TO OBEY GOD BEFORE MEN Today many young people often say: “They must understand that we are young” They give in to temptation and…
“They must understand that we are young”, They prostrate themselves before the world and…
“They must understand that we are young.” Let us clarify the following, It is true that it is necessary to understand
the challenges of each generation, but youth is not an excuse to be weak in the face of the world’s temptations
and the enemy’s deceptions. Let’s look at the example of Daniel and his friends. The fact that Nebuchadnezzar
chose the most handsome, strong and intelligent young people was not by chance. They wanted to systematically indoctrinate them in order to “Babylonize” them
and put them in the service of the empire. First they changed their environment:
from humble Jerusalem to opulent Babylon. Then they changed their names… “Yes, they named Daniel Belteshazzar” “And his friends Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego.” Right. They also changed their education, so that they would learn
the Babylonian culture and religion. And finally they tried to make changes in their diet. Daniel and his friends could have given in like most and excused themselves by saying, “You must understand that we are young.” But instead decided to be
as faithful as the compass to the pole. They preferred to obey God rather than men And they resolved “not to defile themselves
with the royal food and wine.” (Daniel 1:8, NIV) So Daniel courageously asked the head
of the eunuchs not to be forced to defile himself. To which Asphenaz replied, “I am afraid of my lord the king, who has assigned your food and drink. Why should he see you looking worse
than the other young men your age? The king would then have my head because of you.” Well, Daniel didn’t give up that easily, so he insisted with Melsar,
who was in charge of giving them the food: “Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then compare our appearance with that
of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants
in accordance with what you see.” Melsar agreed with them on this, and tried it out during the ten days
that Daniel proposed to him. And at the end of the ten days
their faces were better and stronger than those of the other boys
who ate the king’s portion of food. And from then on they were never defiled
with food that was offered to the idols of Babylon and that in a large percentage violated God’s commandments concerning food. And so, as we have said, Daniel and his friends stood up straight as a pencil
when others folded like play dough. And the third reason why the experience
of these young people was different is that THEY ALWAYS TRUSTED IN GOD’S FAITHFULNESS After three years of study at the “Babylonyan University” came the day of the final exam. The person in charge of evaluating them was
none other than King Nebuchadnezzar himself. ‘Mathematics: OUTSTANDING’ ‘Aramaic language: OUTSTANDING’ ‘Cuneiform Writing: OUTSTANDING’ ‘Astronomy: OUTSTANDING’ ‘Culture and Religion: OUTSTANDING…’ Scripture says that “he found none equal to Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah; In every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king questioned them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom.”
(Daniel 1:20, NIV) In this troubled and turbulent world, God needs men and women like Daniel
to stand firm on God’s side knowing that “He rewards those
who earnestly seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6, NIV) Aunt Ellen confirms this: “There is need of men who like Daniel
will do and dare for the cause of right. Pure hearts, strong hands, fearless courage, are needed; for the warfare between vice and virtue calls for ceaseless vigilance.
(Prophets and Kings, p. 488.3) We can close chapter 1 of Daniel with the certainty
that God is the Sovereign of the Universe, that He gives us strength
and wisdom to obey Him before men, and that, if we do so, He will reward us
not only here and now but forever. Daniel knew to whom he should bow. For we will never fall down before the world, when we first learn to bow down
before the King of the Universe. Sabbath School LIKE invites you to continue

  5. Lo que mas y mas me sorprende, es que eran unos muchachitos de no mas de 17 años!!!!!!!!!!!! Es increíble lo que Dios puede hacer en la vida de aquellos que se entregan sin reservas a sus mandamientos. Jesús mismo, con solo 12 años dejaba atónitos a los doctores y maestros de la ley con su conocimiento de la verdad presente para sus días. Un ejemplo irrefutable de que los jóvenes no necesitan que les dejemos que se vistan como quieran para participar en la iglesia. Tampoco que les permitamos que canten como quieran y hasta bailen en la iglesia, no, no!!! Necesitan el conocimiento de la palabra de Dios. De las profecías de tiempo y la verdadera adoración; para que la reforma en sus vidas sea genuina y con el poder del Espíritu Santo. Bendiciones hermanos!!!!!

  20. puedo decir que mi experiencia como joven en la iglesia fue muy similar como la de Daniel, cuando preste servicio en la armada mi desición fue ser fiel y no contaminarme. Dios me bendijo mucho y se testificó con los oficiales u suboficiales aún dentro de ese lugar encontre personas que sus familias son adventistas y era grato saber que pedia oración por sus vidas y que el sabado podia asistir sin problema a la iglesia en tumaco, bahia solano y bogota, Gloria a Dios

  21. Gracias hermanos
    Todo este material a sido de gran ayuda personal y para nuestra iglesia
    Dios les siga bendiciendo
    Y claro estamos orando por tan lindo proyecto
    Feliz sábado

  22. Los jóvenes adventista no son tentados por el alcohol y las drogas o la música del mundo. Sino por la educación. El 60 % de los jóvenes en nivel universitario al entrar a las casa de estudios se retiran de la iglesia para no volver. Porque se tiene la creencia que ser profecional es ser buena o mejor persona. Oremos por los jóvenes en etapa universitaria.
