Tidbits of History
In the year 605 BC the biblical prophet Daniel and his three friends were among the young Jewish nobility to be taken into captivity in Babylon. Daniel had committed his life to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, so when offered the King’s food, which had been dedicated to Babylonian gods and not prepared under strict Jewish standards, Daniel refused to eat it. Instead, he asked that he and his Hebrew companions be fed only pulse (food grown from seed) and drink only water. The steward in charge of their care reluctantly agreed to allow this change for 10 days and then test the health of the four young men. After the 10 days, the Hebrew men were found to be in far superior health and intellectual acuteness than the other slaves who ate the King’s food. Read the full account at www.Daniel-Fast.com.

The men went on to lead lives of the highest integrity with unwavering trust in their God. They were promoted to high rankings in the government, overcame many challenges and served as impeccable models for the life people can have when they submit their will to the will of the Most High God.

Today, hundreds of Christians throughout the world use the Daniel Fast as a method for spiritual fasting. The fast is modeled after the fasting experiences of the prophet as recorded in Daniel 1 and Daniel 10 along with typical Jewish fasting principles.

Even more Tidbits of History
Some of the earliest archeological dating goes back 13,000 years to caves discovered in Greece. They have been an important staple over the centuries and were mentioned in the bible in Genesis 25:30-34. In this story Esau gave up his birth right for a bowl of lentils.

The Daniel-Fast explained:
Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink. Daniel 1:12

In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled. Daniel 10:2-3

The Daniel Fast is a partial fast practiced by millions of Christians around the world. The definition of a biblical fast is to restrict some or all food for a spiritual purpose. The Daniel Fast is modeled after the fasting experiences of the Hebrew prophet when he and his companions were in captivity in Babylon. Not wanting to defile his body by eating the king’s food, Daniel asked to be fed only pulse (food grown from seed) and drink only water. Daniel wrote of another of his fasts in which he ate no pleasant bread (leavened), drank no wine and ate no meat. With these guidelines, the Daniel Fast eating plan can be described as a vegan diet with more restrictions.

Men, women and teens who enter a period of prayer and fasting using the Daniel Fast experience answers to prayers, a more intimate relationship with God, a significant improvement in their health and well-being and also develop positive habits for their lifestyle as followers of Jesus Christ.
