Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 15 W 3 D 5.

Welcome to The Upper Room. So glad you made it.

We continue with our meditations in The Book of Daniel. We are in Chapter Nine. We have been looking at the act of Hearing God, our responsibility. We pick up from where we stopped yesterday. Daniel 9:2 reads, 

"In the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the Lord through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem."

Daniel was able to see the hand of God through the scriptures, more like we all are supposed to. He was not however carried away by his first impression. He sought to understand even more accurately what he read. Like the Apostle, Peter teaches us, "prophecy is not for private interpretation."

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Word. He is here to expound the word to us. There is no divergent interpretation(s) to the word. There is only one Holy Spirit and He is not in conflict with Himself.

 “Oh! That you studied your Bibles more! Oh! That we all did! How we could plead the promises! How often should we prevail with God when we could hold him to his word, and say, ‘Fulfill this word unto thy servant, whereon thou hast caused me to hope.’ Oh! It is grand praying when our mouth is full of God’s word, for there is no word that can prevail with him like his own.” (Spurgeon)

Let's pray.

The Saint.
