The book of Daniel is by all accounts a fascinating account of events yet to occur.
Daniel 12:4 But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run back and forth, and knowledge shall be increased."
So, if the "Time of the end" is now...the book (Scriptures) are pouring out knowledge unparalleled. Realizing as fact that Daniel is studied in every century since his very life ended, the amount of discussion concerning who he was and how God intertwined his nature into the life of Daniel is mind blowing to say the least! Daniel was not talking about computers, electricity, going to the moon!
One day while praying about the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 28 I asked YHVH, "What is a blessing?" The answer I received was, "Me!" [meaning YHVH is the blessing] YHVH placed into my spirit that his active presence in someone's life is the blessing. A curse however, is his absence.
The book of Daniel tells us of a myriad of events that are going to occur. Many have and or are repeating. Such is the nature of God. "History repeats itself" So does the patterns of YHVH in how he is bringing forward his plan. The fact that men chose to walk away from the plan of God does not mean that the plan was changed. Rather, it simply means men are lost.
One thing that most abused children have in common is stunted development, often emotionally. We see this play out in a variety of behaviors as these children grow up, mature if you will. I have read volumes of books as such because I too was a child of abuse. I have a personal understanding of these things. When men walked away from the plan of God, his purposes, his plan, a similar behavior was born into humanity in my opinion. We stopped growing with God. Satan has been the abuser and the accuser to a bunch of lost folks for six millennium. Unfortunately we have been living like the book, "Lord of the Flies" which I have often paralleled humanity. [Not the book of a just and righteous Creator.]
If the "book" according to Daniel is open, it would explain the rebirth of the nation of Israel, the return of her people, the restoration of God's language, Hebrew! It would also explain millions of people the world over, returning the the root of the book. It would give credence to the chaos sweeping across our generation in rebellion. It would also signal to those who study God's book, perhaps it truly is time to time to put on the full amour of Yahweh! Please put the thought of a Greek gladiator or Roman soldier out of your mind. Paul would not have glorified a roman persecutor when writing the book of Ephesians, Duh! The full amour of God has always been the priestly garments of God's chosen. The book that they wrote, from which every Pastor, Minister, every Reverend and, or Rabbi draws from is a testament to this absolute fact.Jeremiah who also was blessed records "I make a New Covenant with the House of Judah and the House of Israel" Jeremiah 31:31...Not the nations or the church. Jeremiah, like Daniel knew something that we all have been fighting about like "flies lost" for centuries [with Israel often paying the price.] Today the nation of Israel is fighting "HELL" in order to keep Covenant.....The nations are conspiring to kill her. The body of Christ lives in the statue of Nebuchadnezzar? God is calling out his people...from what is he calling his people out of?
Within the nations are a "kazillion" believers who are called to stand up for the one who would be seated on the throne of David. We call him the "King of the Jews, The Lion of the Tribe of Judah"
The enemy of the throne of God has perverted so much of how we are to KNOW GOD that we are beating one another up while the forces of hell move through every government, every army, every political body upon the earth. We are bloodied and beat down because of the "Ass whoopin" we cause among the body. How much sense is that for the body of YHVH? We are watching the nations rise up against Israel just like the patterns of the past. Interestingly, another Christian nation is leading the charge to divide Israel. That would be America....Germany was the last one. Germany was divided, go figure! Antisemitism, racism, and STUPID are almost symphonic across the globe. Meanwhile the body is naked and ashamed! [While existing inside of the wrong body] Jesus was Jewish not Christian, on purpose. Remember, YHVH's plan has not changed.
Are we the generation that fails to Fight Back, Vote Back having been given the greatest weapon on earth, an opened book?
