Living in the End Times….
Jesus is Lord!
Daniel 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
I do not yet pretend to be an expert on end-time Bible prophecy, or eschatology. Yet, clearly these verses refer to the end-times, and clearly these are the times in which we live. So we see abortion legalized here in America, same-sex marriage legislated, and secret financial dealings of treachery against the United States, the land of the free, and home of the brave, the nation founded for and upon the gospel of Jesus Christ…Horrible things being done, proudly, foolishly in government, that clearly oppose the Scripture, and the One who upholds it!
Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Is 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Jesus is Lord! He is the Prince of princes!
There is the government of man, and the eternal government of heaven, that stands over the affairs of men, no matter how great they think they are:
Beltashazzar discovered this to his own peril, as Daniel explained to him:
Da 5:18 O thou king, the most high God gave Nebuchadnezzar thy father a kingdom, and majesty, and glory, and honour:
Da 5:21 And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will.
When the government of man opposes the government of God, and there is a church alive, active, in authority declaring the decrees of God, and the decrees of God are always upheld in heavens holiness, that man’s government, and the people seeking to implement it, are disposed, broken, and depending upon their heart before God, either humbled and reused, or forever removed from power and leadership.
For those of us in leadership, this should keep us humble, broken, teachable before the throne…
Da 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
Jesus Christ is Lord, King over heaven and the earth.
Serve Him, and be blessed, both in this life, and eternally. Reject Him, and discover:
Lu 20:18 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
I have fallen upon the rock, and been broken, and again am being raised up in his love and power, His servant to the nations…
How about you?
‘Father God, I bow before Your throne today, and stand upon Your Word. I would see Jesus today enthroned not only as king of my heart, but in my thoughts, deeds, and decrees. Today, I stand boldly declaring Your kingdom, in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit today, over my life, the life of my family, and over not only the United States of America, but also these nations you have given me to pray for today. I ask this, knowing I am heard, answered and delivered, for again I ask in Your name Lord Jesus, Amen!
