Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Sermon Notes from "A Vision of Seventy Sevens, Part 1: The Angel, Anointed One, and Atonement." Sermon by Mitch Chase.

[From the 10:45AM worship service this past Lord's Day at Kosmosdale Baptist Church.]

Daniel 9:20-24.

I. Intro. The Calamity of Exile:

A. The Mockery of the Nations;

B. Prayer for a New Exodus.

II. The Arrival of Gabriel:

A. While Daniel Was Yet Praying, At "the Time of the Evening Sacrifice"
The sacrifices were not being conducted at this time, but they were on Daniel's mind as he was praying for the restoration of the temple.

B. Daniel is the only OT book in which Gabriel is mentioned by name.

C. Gabriel arrives as an answer to Daniel's prayer; he arrives due to God's love for Daniel.

III. The Reason for Gabriel's Arrival:

A. To reveal:
1. That God will deal with sin;
2. The Holy One.

B. "Seventy Sevens:"
1. Related to the Year of Jubilee in Leviticus 25;
2. Fulfilled in the Person and Work of Christ.

IV. Gabriel in Luke 1:

A. Gabriel is named in this NT text.

B. This is the only other place in Scripture in which Gabriel is named, and his appearance is meant to recall Daniel's prophecy.
