The Daily Word of Righteousness

The Tail of the Dragon, #31

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. (Daniel 12:3)

Who are the stars of the heaven? The stars of the heaven are those who are wise, who turn many to righteousness.

When will the end of the present age come? When will the present distress be concluded? The present age will come to an end when the testimony of the saints has been overcome by evil.

And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. (Daniel 12:7)

The last days are upon us. The words of the Prophet Daniel are being fulfilled in our time. Antichrist has succeeded in filling the Christian churches with deception. The true saints are beginning to realize the enormity of the spiritual darkness descending to the earth. The trumpet is sounding in Zion and soon the hypocrites in Zion will be terrified.

The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? (Isaiah 33:14)

The power of Christ is far greater than the power of Antichrist. Christ has promised to keep His saints:

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ our Lord. (Romans 8:38,39)

For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. (II Timothy 1:12)

Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, (Jude 1:24)

Christ possesses all authority in Heaven and on the earth. To Him every knee shall bow:

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11)

There is no question as to who possesses the greater power. God has given all authority and power to the Lord Jesus Christ.
