Text: Dan 7:15-25 (King James Version)         

  "Father, I am your servant, willing and desiring to be used to bless your people."

                                       The Fields are white and the laborers are few!
C.H. Spurgeon said, "If God does not save a man by truth he certainly will not save them by lies, and if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival;"

 

We can divide life into 2 broad categories: the spiritual, and the material. Jesus often taught that our attitude toward the material is a mark of your true spirituality. Matthew 6:21   For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Some guys attach their wallet to a belt loop with a chain. God connects our wallets to our heart.  Jesus can look at our checkbook for the last 30 days and tell where we are spiritually. Remember Lot? He chose well watered plains of Sodom and Gomorrah. He moved to Sodom wealthy..a prince. But he left Sodom with nothing..a pauper.

 

Daniel 7:15   I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.

Daniel 7:16   I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.

Daniel 7:17   These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.

Daniel 7:18   But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.

Daniel 7:19   Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;

Daniel 7:20   And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.

Daniel 7:21   I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;

Daniel 7:22   Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

Daniel 7:23   Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

Daniel 7:24   And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

Daniel 7:25   And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

 

Let's pray. Father,  Open my eyes so I can see Your truth.

Open my ears so I can hear Your voice.
Open my mind so I can understand Your Word.
And open my heart so I may receive all that You want me to receive. AMEN

 

I realize that this is referring to the end time Antichrist. However we must realize  The Saints of God are getting wore out and the unity of the brethren is playing hop scotch.

 

Galatians 5:19   Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Galatians 5:20   Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

Galatians 5:21   Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Galatians 5:22   But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Galatians 5:22   But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Galatians 5:23   Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Galatians 5:24   And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

Galatians 5:25   If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

 

The reason we have so many casualties spiritually is because the heart is ignored. In armed warfare the vital part of the body is always protected. In our Christian realm that is always the heart. We protect our homes with security alarms, and dead bolts locks. We have security lights. Some have a weapon on guard, yet we ignore our heart. Proverbs 4:23   Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. The word heart has reference to the center of an object. In the Hebrew it means the "kernel of the nut". It has to do with one's feelings, the will, and even the intellect. It is that object that does the decision making for the individual. The instructions "with all diligence"

It is a constant warfare and will require much spiritual energy.

 

God set us to be Watchmen and By Gods Grace this is not going to happen ON MY WATCH!

 

Ezekiel 3:17   Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.

Ezekiel 3:18   When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

Ezekiel 3:19   Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

Ezekiel 3:20   Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

Ezekiel 3:21   Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.

Revelation 12:12   Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time

 

1 John 4:1   Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

1 John 4:2   Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

1 John 4:3   And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

1 John 4:4   Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

John 12:25   He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

John 12:26   If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

 

James 1:12   Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

James 1:13   Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

James 1:14   But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

James 1:15   Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

 

Hebrews 12:1   Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

1 Thessalonians 1:6   And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost:

Matthew 8:5   And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
