Our current times is too close in a time of tribulation such as the world has never known. Christ will come to save His people and to raise the bodies of many from the dust. Glorious rewards will be conferred upon those who have themselves been wise and have instructed others in the way of salvation. As we await the Second Coming of Christ let us use the Spiritual requirements for gaining the following: Reverence (Proverbs 9:10), Humility (Proverbs 11:2, 15:33), Willingness and Ability to be Taught (Proverbs 9:9, 15:31, 19:20), Diligence (Proverbs 8:17, 2:4-5), Uprightness (Proverbs 2:7), Faith (James 1:5-8) (Decision Making and the Will of God, p. 192).

Prayer
Ask God to guide you as you walk by faith and not by sight.  Be careful to surrender all areas of your life into God’s almighty Hands.

The Northern King’s Blasphemies
Friday, January 20, 2017
Day 19


Read: Daniel 11:29-39

Key Verse
32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” 33a “And those of the people who understand shall instruct many...”  –Daniel 11:32-33

Key Words
vv.32-33a Prophecy through Vision


Thought
When Charles Spurgeon was pastor at New Park Street in London, God used his words to bring about amazing changes in the lives of people. A man who was on his way to get some gin saw the crowd at the church door and pushed his way in to see what was going on. At that moment, Spurgeon turned and faced the man and said that there was a man in the gallery who had a gin bottle in his pocket and had come with no good motive. The startled man listened to the rest of the message and was converted. One evening a prostitute, on her way to Black Friars Bridge to commit suicide, stopped at the church, hoping to hear some word that would prepare her to meet her maker.  Spurgeon was preaching from Luke 7:36-50, the story of the prostitute who wiped Jesus feet with her tears.  His text was verse 44; "Seest thou this woman?" As Spurgeon preached, the woman saw herself but also saw the grace of God and trusted Christ (W. Wiersbe, Wycliffe Handbook of Preaching and Preachers, 1984, p. 231).


Prayer:
Ask God to mold you to be used for His purpose, His will, and in His way; do your part and be available to Him always. Then get ready to see the power of the Lord, but this can only come through sincerity, humility, prayer and fasting.
