About Rule and Reign Like Daniel Series
Daniel believed in God as Ruler, so he brought Heaven’s Rule into his earthly government and heathen captors. Do you rule and reign like Daniel did?
In the simplest terms, clearly and beautifully, Christ gathered all the references to the Rock that appear through all of scripture. He shows the Who, the how and the what. The amazing Rock!
Jesus is the Rock, the foundation. He is the ‘Who.’ Having the Cornerstone is possessing Him!
‘How’ to live on the Rock? Obedience to His words and His commands builds your undergirding on the Rock. Your roots are sunk, issue by issue, into the only Solid—Christ.
The ‘what’ (the outcome) is utter stability no matter what rises, assaults or attacks. While others collapse, you stand. When the world goes to pieces, you are intact and so is…the house of your life.
Obedience to the personal voice of God is the only safety. The will of God is lived by the power of Christ’s indwelling: the amazing Rock!
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.
“Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, the floods came and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”
Matthew 7:24-27 NASB
