7/14: "Hope When It Hurts" (Daniel 11:1-12:4)

1. Has there ever been a time in your life when you experienced spiritual warfare? How did your faith in Christ prepare or comfort you during this time?

2.  Ryan states that these visions were meant to encourage Daniel, the generations to come, and to us as well. How does Daniel's vision encourage you?

3.  How have trials transformed your faith?

4.  If we will all be judged by God according to our works, how can you be sure that God will grant you eternal life in heaven and not to eternal punishment?

5.  Are there things in your life that you are placing your hope in other than Christ? From this passage, how are you encouraged to place your faith in Christ alone?
