A God Who Answers | Part Nine.

We continue with our meditations in The Book of Daniel, as we continue to dig deeper into verse 13 of Chapter 10. It reads,

"But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia."

I love scriptures that open to us how the invisible realm operates. If nothing else, it saves us from the deceptions of those who claim they know what they have no clue about. Here the scripture paints the picture of an encounter between an archangel and territorial demons (kings of Persia). Note the plurality.

Territorial demons were able to delay an archangel on God's assignment. Why and How? 'Tis a legal system. The question is who has the legal hold. It is not as though they were shooting mortars armament at each other. Note the word used by the archangel, "withstood me."

The root Hebrew word used here simply means to stand one's ground, not to wobble or shift. Those in states with "stand your ground rules" in the USA will perfectly understand this. It is a law or rule which permits you to defend a land, ground, or territory that belongs to you.

So, the Princes, and Kings of Persia were simply standing their ground, and laying claim to the territory. Obviously, they could not do that except if they have some kind of legal claim. And, they were using that legal claim to hold the Archangel back from carrying out his assignment in the area.

Whatever they hold they had, it was so efficacious they were able to hold back God's agenda for 21 days (three FULL weeks). Note the emphasis in Daniel 10:2. I guess there is a whole lot we need to learn and know about the spirit (invisible) world, and thus rightly size our ego.

The Saint.
