The Daily Word of Righteousness

If You Love Me . . ., #23

Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to him, "How long will it take for the vision to be fulfilled—the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, the rebellion that causes desolation, and the surrender of the sanctuary and of the host that will be trampled underfoot?" He said to me, "It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated." (Daniel 8:13,14)

The above passage informs us that the Father has everything in control. He knows exactly how long a time His program for removing lawlessness will require. This will be very important for us to understand in the coming days because it will seem as though the spirit realm is out of control.

The Lawless One will be given authority and power to reach into the very heavens, thus interfering with our prayers. This will be the hour of darkness when no person can do the works of God in the cities of the earth.

It will be impossible to pray to God. It will be impossible to touch Christ for salvation. It will be impossible to receive the Holy Spirit.

Only in the godly remnant of saints, Jewish and Gentile, hidden away under the hand of God, will there be salvation and deliverance. Those who come to them will be under the protection of God.

The Throne of God presently in the highest Heaven is in the process of moving to the hearts of those who keep the commandments of God. This is what it means when it says the present sanctuary will be surrendered and then reconsecrated.

Heaven has been the Throne of God to this point. But in the future Jerusalem, the Bride of the Lamb, will be the Throne of God.

At that time they will call Jerusalem The Throne of the LORD, and all nations will gather in Jerusalem to honor the name of the LORD. No longer will they follow the stubbornness of their evil hearts. (Jeremiah 3:17)

No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. (Revelation 22:3)

The moving of His Throne from the spirit heavens to the hearts of the new creation, man, is God's answer to the spirit personages who rebelled against Him in eons past. This is why He who sits in the heavens is laughing at those who would cast aside His restraints.

It really is a joke that such lowly (compared with the archangels and cherubim) creatures as human beings are to become the Throne of Almighty God. But this exactly is what is taking place. Man was created to be the eternal Throne of God, the ruler and judge of all other creatures.

Don't you think that's funny? I do.

Daniel, Chapter Nine.

Seventy sevens [seventy weeks] are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy. (Daniel 9:24)

Seventy prophetic weeks have been decided upon during which rebellion will be removed from the creation and eternal righteousness will be established. All that has been prophesied will be completed, not one word spoken by the Prophets will fall to the ground. The vision will be marvelously fulfilled. The Holy of Holies in the heart of the Lamb and His Bride will be anointed with the Spirit of God.

To be continued.
