Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 15 W 2 D 5.

Welcome to The Upper Room. So glad you came.

We continue with our meditations in The Book of Daniel, as we lead ourselves into The Throne Room, the Courtyard of Heaven. We are presently looking at the visions of Daniel in Chapter 7 and their interpretation.

We again look at the Four Beasts (Kings, Kingdoms) in verses 4 - 7. These are parallel to the same Kings (kingdoms) depicted in Nebuchadnezzar's vision in Chapter 2. God was in essence repeating the same vision using a different typology.

God's repetition points to the certainty of the visions, their importance to God, and His wanting us to know and understand them. These spoke of things to come, many of which have since come to pass. They portend to the truth of the influence of the invisible in the visible.

Things don't just happen. They happen according to a certain preordained order. The summary of which is the truth and fact that, God is in charge of His universe. Nothing and I repeat nothing is out of His order. Everything consists of and is held together by Him.

Truly, it is in Him that we live, move, and have our being. As we close out this chapter, let us beam light on a few high notes.

The first is verse 10b. It reads, "The court was seated, and the books were opened." This is a repeat of all we have been reiterating in this book. "Everything gets decided and given power to in the Courtyard of Heaven (The Throne Room)." Nothing happens except that which is given accent to here. The one who seats on the thropne to adjourn this seating is The Ancient of Days, The Lord God, Himself.

The second thing worthy of note is teh truth, Daniel did not rush into an ionterpretation of the visions he had seen. He opened his heart to God for interpretation and understanding. (Verses 15 - 27)

The third thing is a caution to beware of what we fight against lest we might be fighting and praying against that which God Himself had ordained. (verse 25) Note it was God who gave the fourth beast the right to weary the saints.

Let's pray.

The Saint.
