What Daniel may not have realized was that by doing things God’s way, he was actually eating a very healthy diet that would allow his food to be digested more fully. This in turn meant that Daniel would be gaining as much protein and nutrition from the food he ate as possible. He would eat less and be more full. Conversely, those who ate the king’s food would not experience those benefit because that food was probably overcooked, heavy in fats and salts.
It is fascinating though how one of the big aims of Satan has always seemed to be to get the Jews out of Israel and Judaism out of the Jewish people. It doesn’t seem to matter who the dictator or king is at the time either. The goal always seems to be the same. Make the Jewish people forget about their God and Judaism itself.
God leaves us here after we become Christians to help rescue others out of Satan’s dark dominion. He does not leave us here so that we can become preoccupied trying to fight to get America (or any other nation) back. We have a mission to rescue other people by introducing them to Jesus. That is our mission in its totality.
America is on borrowed time. We are well past the point of no return. There is no going back. If you want to work to change America as a nation politically, I certainly will not try to stop you from doing that. For me? While this country hurtles toward judgment (and it is coming!), my preference is to be involved in pulling people from the fire by introducing them to the only One who can save them from their sin.
Folks, let’s leave America to God and be about fulfilling the one job He did give us, the Great Commission, where we tell individuals about Jesus and their need for salvation. America is simply a backdrop. My citizenship is in heaven, folks. I’m hoping yours is too, but from the looks of things, too many believe their citizenship is in America, where it starts and stops.
Notice here the sun goes dark. Because of that, there is also no moonlight. The stars fall from the sky, also going dark. In other words, just like when the lights go out in an auditorium just prior to the curtain going up, the same thing on a far grander scale will happen in the heavens. The lights going out in an auditorium does one thing: it focuses our attention on the stage where we know events are about to unfold.
The reality is that what we need to know about the end times or the last days if you will leading up to and including the Tribulation period is already noted in God’s Word. It is clear. It is unmistakable and does not have 3,000-year-old secrets that have gone undetected until today when “prophets” or teachers can bring them to the fore as though by direct revelation from God. These revelations have occurred directly because at least one author stated that God “told” him what was coming. He said God showed him a connection between the Shemitah, blood moons and more, yet apparently, God was kind of unsure about all of it because when you read his books, he sounds more like a politician than a prophet, always presenting his propositions with “might” or “could” or “may” happen. That’s not the declaration of a true prophet, yet that is what is accepted today as coming from a “prophet,” but is nothing more than emotional virtue, basing “truth” on how we feel about something. Truth is truth regardless of how we feel. Feelings can be deceiving and often take us off the path of truth. It started in the Garden of Eden with a woman who had no sin nature and in essence was “perfect” yet untried. We don’t have the luxury of living without a sin nature. It is something we must fight against all of our lives until it is finally and fully removed from us. That’s what makes our lives much more difficult than Adam’s and Eve’s because they started life without sin natures. Imagine how they felt once they realized what their sin had created.
