AND THE INTERPRETATION THEREOF

Luke 21:15 “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.”

Wisdom from the everlasting Creator of all that is. “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hipocrisy.” When one ventures into the book of Daniel, they see this truth playing out in full. Up until recently, my understanding of this was similar to a black and white photograph. You can make out many of the details, but the fullness is lacking. Since going through some of the teaching at Shatter The darkness this precept has been transformed into a full color 3D image. I didn’t realize the extent of this, until my daily bible reading brought me to the book of Daniel. (Lately I’ve been reading through the books of the bible in alphabetical order, starting with Acts, then Amos, I Chronicles, and so on) Admittedly, previous focusings of this book have always gravitated toward chapters 7-12. But as one reads these first two chapters, they see playing out, a pattern that has persisted ever since the fall, when a finite created being, became full of himself, and sought to overpower the infinate God who inhabits eternity. All of the chaos, woes, and heartache in the world today, are fallout from the moment when Lucifer said in his heart “hey; check me out.”

It’s astonishing to witness arrogance in play. It clouds the thinking of one given to it; even to the point wherein they will attempt the impossible, as Lucifer did when he sought to exalt his throne above the stars of God. As we visit the book of Daniel, the striking difference between finite and infinate is put on full display, beginning with:

Daniel 1:9 “Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the eunichs.”

Satan cannot do this. He can manipulate, deceive and make empty promises. He can utilize the three lusts (I John 2:16) and he is very proficient at doing so.  But he cannot bring one info favour and tender love with another, in a way that’s void of advantage. But this is just the beginning of the account. As we continue, we find that God granted wisdom from on high to Daniel, Hananiah, (Shadrach)  Mishael, (Meshach) and Azariah. (Abednigo) This wisdom was pure and not subject to distortions. The same cannot be said for the non-human enhancements (a Russ dizdar term) that folks receive from fallen entities. Regardless of what the enties feign themselves as, (ascended masters, extra-terrestrials, goddesses, or what have you)  they are very limited and the information that they offer is finite-at-its-best. The enhancement that they offer is not dependable because it has but one purpose. To lead souls away from God and into eternal damnation. These beings have a complete hatred for their Creator, a hatred for those whon are made in the image of God, and they are unremorseful in their decision to follow the fallen cherub.

Daniel 1:17 “As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all dreams and visions.”

Daniel 1:20 “And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.”

These men had wisdom and understanding for which the enemy had no remedy and this was about to play out before Nebudchanezzar. We know the story well, but it bears repeating. Nebudchanezzar had a dream…a very disturbing dream….but he could not remember the details. Neverhteless, his sleep departed and he quickly turned to his trusty magicians; asking them to reveal the hidden things and resolve the perplexity.

Daniel 2:4-6 “Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation.
The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, the thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.
But if ye shew the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honour: therefore shew me the dream, and the interpretation thereof.”

Suddenly, the Chaldeans were in a bind. Despite the promise of either reward or destruction, they knew that the entities with whom they interracted, could not reveal this. The Chaldeans couldn’t even “guess;” that is, give an interpretation that seemed to line up with the details of the dream, in an attempt to appease the king. Nebudchadnezzar quickly recognized this tactic and called them out.

Daniel 2:9 “But if ye will not make known unto me the dream, there is but one decree for you: for ye have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, till the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that ye can shew me the interpretation thereof.”

Again the Chaldeans pleaded their case with “there is none other that can shew it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.” In his anger, king Nebudchadnezzar commands that all the wise men should be slain; supposing that this limitation is present with all who are called as such. I wonder if, in addition to this, Satan saw an avenue by which he clould eliminate Daniel and his three friends. Without a doubt, he knew the danger of their presence. And so, he undoubtedly fueled the anger of Nebudchadnezzar to the point that he determined to do away with all who were viewed as having understanding of such matters. However, as is always the case, God is several steps ahead of the created fallen cherub.

Daniel 2:14-15 “Then Daniel answered with councel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the kings guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon.
He answered and said to Arioch the kings captain, Why is the decree so hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel.”

Daniel makes this known to his friends and asks of the king for time. Daniel knows that nothing is hidden from God and that he can make known such a thing. We don’t know how much time passed after the request for more time was granted, however we do know that the seemingly impossible took place. “Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision.” We know that Daniel went to the king, revealed this matter. The result was  the sparing of life (for all the wise men) coupled with  promotion for Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. Imagine what could have transpired, but didn’t. If Nebudchadnezzar had remembered the dream, the Chaldeans would have offered up a fitting interpretation and this dream (which has significance for our time) would have never been known to any others. If Daniel had perished  during the kings rage against his advisors, the prophetic portions of the book of Daniel would not have been forthcoming. (at lest not in the manner that we know them.) Every attempt that Satan makes in thwarting the truth ends up returning back on his own head. Yet his arrogance will continue to drive him, along with those who kept not their first estate.

Isaiah 14:16-17 “They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, and did shake kingdoms;
That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

Russ Dizdar has explained this in many of his series. Satan is no longer what he was created to be. There’s not a shread of truth in him, nor is their a single element of the previous nature. I remember something that Bill Wiese discussed in his book “23 Minutes in Hell” In describing the demons that he encountered, he stated words to the effect of  “they had no capacity for compassion. They were incapable of feelings for another and knew only hatred.” They thrived on tormenting another, just as Satan thrives on sorrow, destruction, and lying. This is the nature that he willfully adopted when he derailed himself. Now his time is nearing its conclusion and he will soon indwell a man,  whom the world will wonder after. The individual commonly referred to as “the antichrist” is most likely walking amonmgst us now (though we cannot say decisively. This has not been revealed) and is awaiting the moment when he will fulfil his destiny. A short and violent road toward perdition and everlasting torment.  

Revelation 19:20 “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he ceceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”

Well it’s time to be going. I’ve missed greatly the interraction here. Circumstances have not been condusive to blogging, however, this appears to be changing. The past few weeks have been chaotic, but also a time of incredible enlightenment as to the battle that’s before us and just how perilous the times are. The biggest challenge is striving to awaken the slumbering brethren in my venue. Most of them get a strange look on their face whenever one even mentions “the end times” let alone issues involving spiritual warfare and deception. May we all be alert and watching; lest Satan get an advantage of us. Lest we become tangled up in endless debatings and wrangling over issues which have no eternal significance. Thanks to all who stop by here. Below are some links wherein one can find an abundance of information and insight. 

Blessings always in Jesus name.

MORE STRANDS IN THE WEB OF DECEPTION This is the site of DBF and this post discusses the myriad of dangerous teachings which have made their way into the church.

NEW AGE DECEPTION  Gaz Parker. I just learned of this site two hours ago. Please visit the post NOT ALL SPIRITS ARE BAD ARE THEY

BOOK OF ENOCH with preceeding commentary This will be controversial. I really don’t know how to classify the book of Enoch. I’ve read part of it and must admit….it’s fascinating. Nonetheless, the bible continues to be the gauge by which we mesure anything.  According to II Timothy 3:16-17, we have been thoroughly furnished.

    Thanks for the links Timbob. Glad to see you’re back!

    I’m glad to see you going strong, Timbob. I have also read Bill Weiss’ book and have come to believe that he tells the truth. I suspect that the way the evil beings treat each other down there is something of a spiritual carnivorism, or parasitism. Instead of flesh, it’s something else that they devour. The curse that fell on Adam was partly the food chain, the brutality of which is probably just a shadow of something from an even darker world.

    Like you, I have read a large portion of the Book of Enoch, also. I don’t know where I stand on it, either. From memory, I think it mentioned the existence of another continent on the other side of the Atlantic, and it told of a chain of volcanoes on its opposite shore (the ring of fire). That and the fact that it’s an extremely old book makes it fascinating. However, it did make the erroneous claim that the four winds came out of great vents in the ground. I don’t know how it could be so unwittingly right, yet so blatantly wrong at the same time.

    I hope God blesses and keeps you.

    Regards

    I haven’t read the Book of Enoch myself yet, so I’m not promoting it, but I understand it is a collection of books by different authors.

    ” According to Canon Charles, the various elements of which the Book of Enoch in its present form is made up belong to different dates. Thus one can expect a diversity of authorship, and of this there can be no shadow of doubt. However, while there is not unity of authorship there is, none the less, uniformity. Several scholars suggest we should speak of the collection as the “Books” of Enoch, not the “Book” of Enoch.”

  4. Hi DBF. Sorry for the delay in responding. The book of Enoch is truly an interesting thing. I’m fascinated by the goings on in the days prior to the flood, albeit, in-depth understanding of the nephelim and the watchers is not an imperative. (I wonder if some understanding could even be harmful?) If there is one danger that I’ve seen, it’s folks who become so enfatuated with these issues that they almost take priority over Jesus and the gospel whereby folks can be made free.

    we have to maintain a proper perspective of all things. Luke 10:20 comes to mind.

    Thanks so much for stopping by. Blessings always in Jesus name.

  5. Hi Nonaeroterraqueous. (I always have to scroll up about four times to write your screen name properly. lol) It is a fascinating book. The four vents; I cannot remember if I saw that part or not. I wonder if it could be a figurative thing. Something else that I read was in chapter 58 where it discussed the 510th year of enoch. That conflicts with the biblical record that years totaled 365.

    Spiritual carnivorism. It makes sense; albeit a disturbing thing to consider. Bill Wiese told of some horrific things that he saw. It begs the question; do we really understand the seriousness of this? I wrestle with this daily because I often seem to have a life of lightness. I call it a sense of humor, but it may be spiritual lightness in a most serious hour.

    Thanks so much for stopping by. It’s always good to hear from those who love Jesus in spirit and in truth. Blessings always in Jesus name.

    You might be right about the vents being figurative. I found the chapter where it was mentioned, chapter 34, and it reads a little differently than the version I read a while back. I plan to re-read the entire book using your version. I’ll try to get started tonight.
