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?

Devotional

Whoever does not fall down and worship shall that very hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. 

…Let it be known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image which you have set up!
Daniel 3:6, 18 AMPC

You have no power over who you are, where you were born, the family you were born into, what you serve. What you do have is the free privilege of choosing your object of worship. And that is the real life-and-death choice. Your altar of worship must be built on Rock before the assault against it comes. The clear meaning of this entire book of Daniel is the test of worship! Your crisis also is an examination and exposure of what you really worship.

Worship God, and you are given life. Bow to evil and die. It seems quite the opposite, that to appease evil spares you. That is the lie of the Liar.

And to bow to evil is not the worship of evil. Our altar is hidden, utterly subconscious. Bowing to the tyrant’s demand of worship is actually bowing to your golden idol of YOU. By saving your life, you please, adore, serve, and worship your…SELF.
