Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 15 W 3 D 2.


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. We enter into Chapter Nine today. Someone says this is the core of the entire book. Is that true? It entails Daniel's third vision. Unlike the first two, which were Dreams, this was an open vision.

The vision is the closing part of the chapter. The first is another type of vision altogether. One we all have access to, and are in control of. Revelatory visions are outside our operational control. They only occur at the behest of God. We cannot initiate them, nor pray for them.

God is not obliged to give us revelationary visions. He is however obliged to speak to us. The basic and primary way He does is true is the written word, the logos. This is within our 100% operational control. We can get the word, read, study, and meditate on it. 

We are without excuse. God is not going to read the Word for us. The Holy Spirit will only bring back to our memory that which we have read. If we don't read it, there is nothing for him to hover over and give us illumination on.

So, the first move is ours when it comes to hearing God's word. We have to desire the sincere milk of the word, then grow to where we can handle the meat and bone of the word. These will not come suddenly on us. We have to apply ourselves.

God will not do our part for us. We have to draw near to God for Him to draw near to us. The next move is ours.

Let's pray.

The Saint.
