Daniel 6:24 (KJV)
Child of God, I want you to notice that we have some unbelievable power and it is imperative that we begin to use it from TODAY. In challenging times like these, the enemy is trying everything to cause us as saints of God to become shaky and weary and discouraged. He is using people to upset us, talk badly about us, block up our blessings and the like. Sadly, some of them claim to be Christians too - Be very careful with those who come claiming to be your friend. Sometimes they have other motives. The Bible calls them wolves in sheep clothing. Those are the ones that change on you so suddenly and shock you. Those are the ones who never forgive you when you had them so cloase. They do some shocking things. Becareful who you TRUST! Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
The devil is using our enemies to upset us, our supervisors, bosses, bankers, governments, oppositions etc to make things hard for us and he is also turning our good friends and family members against us too. Nothing is different now than it was in the Bible centuries ago. There were always HATERS. Joseph's brothers. . . Job's friends. . .
Here's how you deal with ALL your haters. Simply do what Daniel did - PRAY. When Daniel's enemies and HATERS setup to bring him down, he didn't go into a corner and worry and pray and cry. He went to his house, threw back his windows to show that he wasn't afraid and he began to pray and trust in his God even more.
That is just what every born again believer needs to start doing from TODAY across the world. Haven't you noticed that talking on radio about how hard life is, isn't making a difference? No move in taxes. Electricity has gone up and I am wondering how many citizens are scared to hear their island's budget addresses end of year. Count how many businesses you know have closed down. Look on the shelves of others. How many people you know don't have a job? How many people are in court for Hire Purchase because their economic situation changed. (WARNING: Do Not Hire Purchase this season - Order and Buy cash. A word to the wise is enough)
WE MUST BEGIN TO PRAY - WAGE WAR!!!!! Pray individually. Pray Collectively. We must break down the walls of LABELS and recognize that UNITY is STRENGTH and come together as THE CHURCH.
Here again - This is yet another WORD FROM THE LORD. (The People in Noah's Time Didn't Listen.) If we continue to SUFFER - It is entirely our fault because God is calling us TOGETHER TO PRAY before he acts.
You know Dare 2 Be Different Int'l (www.d2bdifferent.com) and The Mount Carmel Baptist Church (www.mountcarmelbaptistonfire.com) doesn't wait at all for support, we do our own thing and refuse to be numbered with others who just talk and don't act.
In November 2012, we will be launching its Global Free Prayer Call Line. It will be available 24-7 / 365 days a year. This will allow people to call in anytime, anyday and join with others around the globein as many different languages as we pray from the conveniece of our homes or offices, via telephone or internet. (Technology at work again)
Note: God doesn't deliver Daniel right away, he allows him to go down to his lowest, reach in the lion's den and spend a night there too and then he delivers him. The fact is - GOD NEVER FORGOT HIM - HE REMEMBERED HIM AND DELIVERED HIM!
Soooo. . . not because you're suffering now, means that God has forgotten you. YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN - GOD KNOWS YOUR NAME.
Not only that, God dealt with his enemies. He didn't just whip them. He REMOVED them out of Daniel's way for ever. He killed them! Don't worry friend, like Daniel, your suffering won't be forever. When God sees that you've had ENOUGH - He's going to REMOVE your enemies - ALL OF THEM - out of your path and give you your PROMOTION.
And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den.
Daniel 6:24 (KJV)
So. . . .that person who has that application for a piece of land on their desk for you and not signing off on it. Begin to pray right now. For that loan officer who sees that your idea is a great one and is trying to slow you up just so you can give up. Begin to pray even now. For that court case you have and you can't afford a laywer, simply ask God for one of his Angelic Lawyers - They have more QCs than anyone out there.
Your deliverance is at hand. Claim the job. Claim that business. Claim those monies that are coming your way this week. DO NOT WORRY! Haven't you noticed that on nearly every occassion in the Bible and in life, the greatest people and those who reach the furthest, had to suffer first before they got their JUST REWARDS? Their HATERS were either dealt with or lived to see them RISE?
So. . . .Just Keep On Praying like Daniel and like Modecai and his people. The very same gallows that your enemies have setup for you - you'll soon see them hanging from them! That's BIBLE! Child of God - Do Not Worry. Even if you are in a deep trial or hole TODAY - Just Keep On Praying and stay on the lookout. God knows how to remove your enemies in different ways, not just death, but he sometimes causes the suffering that they wished for you, to come upon their lives and the lives of their family members too. (So. . . .this is a call for all who are trying to make it difficult for God's People to REPENT or go through what Daniel's Haters experienced)
Some people are making it really bad for their entire families just because they have setup in their heart to do you harm. We must always encourage ALL our relatives to do GOOD to others because they may just be the cause of your downfall. (Look at Daniel's Haters - because of their spirit of envy and jealousy, they caused the death of their entire families. Talk to your family members.) When Noah Spoke - no one listened - REMEMBER?
TALK TO THEM - TELL THEM TO DO GOOD TO OTHERS ALL THE TIME AND HELP. TELL THEM NOT TO BE ENVIOUS AND WITHHOLD. TALK TO THEM!
Esther 7:9 And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.
