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?
We live in an age that has ‘refused’ to know God – just as Israel did in Jeremiah’s time. We have endless knowledge about Him. We separate His traits from Him. We want His gifts but not His Person. We make Him a study instead of a relationship. We reduce Him to principles and words so that we don’t have to do the work to know God.
We want to have no need of God Himself as a personal Being. We’ve no need to depend on Him because we know ABOUT Him.
Daniel said, “Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever…”
To ‘know His name’ is not to work out the definitions of His many names – though that is wonderful. To know God’s name is to behold Him in His Being, to understand His nature by the very experience of Him.
