Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 17 W 3 D 3.


Prophecies | Part Six | The Saint.

Welcome to The Upper Room. So glad to have you join us.

We continue with our meditations in The Book of Daniel, as we continue to dig into verse 14 of Chapter 10. It reads,

"Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.”"

Prophecy is all about God.

It does not fail to amaze me the arrogance displayed on the pew by those who are expected to know and act better. Ministry is not about us. It is all about God - the Godhead. We are servants, slaves, though children just as well. A lack of an understanding of this is what gets people into the kind of mess expatiated by Jesus in Matthew 7.21-23.

Jesus gives us an inkling into what our attitude should be in Luke 17:10. It reads, "So likewise you, when you have done all those things which you are commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants. We have done what was our duty to do.’”" We MUST never get to the place where we suppose ourselves FAMILIAR with God. It is an easy ticket to HELL. We MUST always be in AWE of Him even in the midst of the seeming familiarity.

Apostle Paul understands this. So, he tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:11, "Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences." Without losing sight of the second part of the verse, my focus is on the first part. Our Loving and Merciful God is also a Terrible God. If you know, you know. Ask Job, Moses, etc. 

He is thrice Holy God. We MUST never forget that. He MUST ALWAYS be held in HIGH esteem in our hearts, otherwise, we will miss Him, and eternity with Him. He is not our mate. He is bigger than us. Need I say that again. The Apostle Peter writes,

"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed." (1 Peter 3;15-16)

Let's pray.

The Saint.
