Pamphlet 5044 KC Daniel 19-2

His people are called by His name which is Christ.
In other words, they are called Christians.

Let's return to Daniel's prayer which he is giving on behalf of his people.

Daniel 9:12
And He hath confirmed His words, which He spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem.
Again, we are without excuse for He has warned us what would come to pass if we disobeyed His laws and precepts.

He has been gracious to us by giving us "free will", the freedom of choice, which means we are free to chose the path we follow.

Remember that the next time you cast a vote in this nation!

Deut. 30:19
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
He has given each of us a choice and it is up to each of us to make that choice!
Daniel 9:13
As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.
Do you see the majority of the preachers and ministers today teaching repentance, teaching our people to turn from their own ways and turn to the Word of God for instruction and admonition?

Do they teach an "understanding of thy truth", His word, line by line and chapter by chapter?

Not many do because most are afraid they might offend someone and lose membership which would not be good "business".

You see, many live by the "Golden Rule Formula (GRF)"... which is Members + Attendance = More Gold.

[14] Therefore hath the LORD watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the LORD our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice.
To watch upon the evil simply means He allows the curses to come upon them as per Deut. 28 because He warned them and yet they "obeyed not HIS voice".
[15] And now, O Lord our God, that hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast gotten thee renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.
Isn't is amazing that after all of the miracles God did in the sight of our forefathers, that His wondrous works are so quickly forgotten and our people return to their own way, a way "that seemeth right in their own eyes".

The only one problem with our own way is that in the final end, it will cause eternal death!

Proverbs 16:25
There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Daniel now continues his prayer, asking God to turn away His anger and His fury upon his people.

The rest of the prayer is solemn and requires little comment:

Daniel 9:16
O Lord, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to all that are about us.
In other Words, through our sinfulness and iniquities we who call ourselves God's children bring shame upon our Father.
[17] Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord's sake.

[18] O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.

[19] O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.

His people are called by His name which is Christ.

In other words, they are called Christians.

What a beautiful prayer and what a beautiful person this Daniel was.

The love he had for his Father and the compassion he had for his nation and family is truly exemplary.

In our next study, Gabriel the man of God, one of the archangels, will come to Daniel to give him skill and understanding.

So let's be wise and go listen in. Next pamphlet!

It is important that YOU Read it all!

Jesus said, "the book of Daniel was where one could go read and gain understanding"

Jesus Christ told us in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 when He sat upon the Mount of Olives and gave His disciples the seven seals concerning the knowledge and the events that would transpire during the final generation of the fig tree, that the book of Daniel was where one could go read and gain understanding concerning the abomination of desolation, that abominable desolator (antichrist) who would come stand in the holy place claiming to be God.
The book of Daniel is the Apocalypse of the Old Testament
and a sister book to the Apocalypse of the New Testament,
the book of Revelation.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
