As I was meditating upon The LORD, I believe that God is getting His Bride ready for His return!
How? Daniel exercised great integrity (loyalty) and, in doing so, received the respect and affection of the powerful rulers he served.
Unlike the church of today, who are more dedicated to the flesh, this world, and the things of Satan than God intended when He built the Garden of Eden!
You see, it has always been God’s intentions for man to worship and to serve Him, but because of sin, man failed by listening to Satan.
But, The LORD revealed to me that the life of Daniel reveals the true heart of God and, what it means to be honest and loyal to his God, which never led him compromising his faith in the one true God.
And, rather than it being an obstacle to his success, Daniel’s continual devotion to God brought him the admiration of the unbelievers in his circle.
When delivering his interpretations, he was quick to give God the credit for his ability to do so (Daniel 2:28). What a great Book!
As I was reading the Book of Daniel, God allowed me to see a glimpse of His heart through Daniel and how that the church needs to begin to equip those who are not knowledgeable or lack wisdom in what it takes to become a strong soldier for The LORD!
You see, I believe that God is saying that the time is going to come when the Church, as in the times of Daniel, will go through great persecution, suffering and tribulations and many of us will not have what we need to stand in that hour!
You see, the Antichrist in the Book of Daniel revealed how many were deceived by flattery, trickery and even the things of this world; even the signs and the wonders were a way in tricking those who was gullible and susceptible to his evil! Just as the Church has begun to be in today’s world.
Many of us think it is just a normal transition (the false church and the nations) and a simple fad that is taking place, when actually it is something far more than that.
This weak false church and those in the Nations, are getting less and less Word in their hearts and building their faith on things that are seen and that are temporal that can bring no substance!
The LORD began to reveal to me how that Satan has many evil agents in both the Church and our Nations whom he is using to condition the Body of Christ (even the Nations) to become sensitized to the things of the flesh, the world and the devil!
You see, this desensitized way of living without God in our lives will cause many not to see the fake flattery that this Antichrist individual is bringing to the table, because they will be so caught up with his false sense of peace, security, all the royalty he brings such as the glitz and glamor and the fame that those who are religious and weak will assume that God is with him leaving them to abandon all that is Holy, just and righteous to walk with him.
Not, knowing that this individual has come to change the times and the policies of God causing God’s people to become enslaved into captivity (those who are called to hold up the light and to intercede on their behalf) while this spirit arises to deceive not only the world but those who are both lukewarm and gullible (even some of the Jews) to his fake flattery telling them what they want to hear and not what God is saying!
Because this individual will hate and despise the things and the ways of God, arising and standing up in pride against all that is holy, as Lucifer did when he came down from heaven as a bolt of lightening, leaving God to rise up to fight for His people and eventually getting His vengeance upon him.
But it will be for an appointed time to come.
Now you see, people, why God hates pride, because it causes those who walk in it to go against Him (all that is pure) just as this individual who will be identified as the Antichrist shall do!
Why am I telling you this? To warn you that God is giving the Church space to prepare for the things to come, by doing like Ephesians 6:10-19 that states,
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in The LORD, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; and for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel.”
People, God is giving His people both strategy and wisdom in how to defeat the enemy in this season.
For, I believe God is revealing that the church is in a season of victory but in the times to come the Antichrist and all his footmen shall arise and he wants the Church to be prepared and perfected on how to stand in these times!
He is saying that it will take more than your gifts, talents, and the ability to be a great orator to defeat this enemy and that it is going to take soldiers that are armed, prepared and ready to fight in a battle that may be unfamiliar to what you are accustomed to fighting and even some unusual sacrifices might have to be made.
But, I hear God saying, “If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?” (Jeremiah 12:5).
HELLO SOMEBODY! Many are claiming to be soldiers for The LORD and at the first sign of trouble, temptation and even a minor sign of trouble you tuck tail and run but God wants to build character, integrity and endurance in the body of Christ as he did Daniel and his accomplices!
For, I believe that the Book of Daniel which God told me to read is a strategic plan to prepare the people to know that God is building more than just our plan and purpose of destiny to preach, teach and to prophesy not that these things are wrong in themselves but God wants His people get into His Word and to prepare many for the ultimate battle to come when you cannot get a word from others and he wants to speak to you personally.
So you will learn to be totally dependent upon Him for a night vision or a divine vision in order to get in touch with Him for help and he wants you to be able to recognize and to identify the enemy and all his traps so that when the true Antichrist comes you want be swayed or give in when their is no food or shelter in the times of persecution.
And, so you will know how to make your own life a sacrificial offering and you will know how to give up the pleasures of this world to fast and pray as you learn to wait patiently upon Him for your provision.
Instead of compromising your own personal faith and values in God as many did in Daniel’s time.
And, you as the people of God may remember like Daniel a person of character, integrity and honor how you will have to stand up and deny the Antichrist dainty meats trusting like Elijah’s God he will supply your every need in Christ Jesus!
I employ you people if you know in your heart that you are indeed prone to compromising and you love the flesh, the world and the pride of life it is time to get on your face and to get a relationship with God as Daniel and his accomplices did in the Book of Daniel, because The LORD let me see tonight the world is preparing (conditioning and molding) the Nations to make way for the Antichrist and it is being molded and drilled like an octopus with squids that are being placed in the lives of our children EVERY DAY; even in our schools.
Through things such as: television, Hollywood, our news media who has stop reporting the news and allowing you to think for yourselves are thinking for you, babies being aborted in clinics and on the streets and governments even abandoning the phrase “in God we trust”.
Every day; even training and stealing the minds of our children to accept things against our freedom of religion!
I do not say this to at all scare you but to let you know the strategy of the enemy and to prepare you for what is to come!
Will you be ready????
The entire Book of Daniel, I believe that God using as a strategic weapon to teach His people what it will take just to make it to the promise land! Such great self-sacrifice, faith and endurance!
