Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 14 W 6 D 3.

Welcome to the Upper Room. So glad you came.

We continue our meditations in The Book of Daniel, as we lead ourselves into The Throne Room. Today we land on Daniel 6:22. Along with verse 21, it reads, 

"Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever! My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.”"

I love the way Daniel describes the occurrence in the den of lions. He brings the ministry and operation of angels to bear. Yes, God did shut the mouth of the lions, but how? Daniel fills the gap for us. God sent his angel to do the work. It is also important to note, Daniel gave the glory to God not the angel.

Religious people would have easily instituted the worship of and praying to angels from this seeming innocent occurrence. Religious people are so hunger for fake worship, they worship the created in lieu of the creator. 

Yes, even John the beloveth was almost carried away. The angel had to correct him. Yet you have ignoramus today quick to pray to Angel Michael. The devil has them cornered, and they know not. Yes, angels are magnificient and glorious, but they are not God.

The writer of Hebrews tells us, "they are ministering spirits, sent forth to minister to those who are to inherit salvation." Join that with Daniel's words in verse 22 of Daniel Chapter 6, and you see they move at God's bidding to establish God's order.

Add Joshua's encounter at Jericho to the midst, and you see they are not partisan. They don't necessarily listen to the bidding or direction of men. Yes, they minister to us, but they are neither for us, nor against us. They are for God. They are not our servants. They are God's servants.

So, do you see the foolishness in praying to them? Only God sends them. They do God's bidding not ours. Add again David's encounter with the angel of death. Note, David never once conversed with the angel. All is converse was with God. It was God who stopped the hand of the angel, not David.

May God give us wisdom.

Let's pray.

The Saint.
