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?
Jesus bore our fire on the unspeakable Cross. The Cross was the furnace of Christ. He burned and He died so you won’t. So I need never. Jesus endured MY suffering and died MY death. The triumphant picture of the Cross is His vicarious taking on Himself the fire of our judgment. That Cross is the vivid efficacy of complete and total salvation…for eternity, but also for the Terrible Now.
Christ’s very life was the presence of His Father. We don’t comprehend that because we have no such passion for the presence of God, by having no idea of that necessity or its joy. The greatest suffering of Christ was separation from the nearness of God when the sin of the world was placed upon Him.
My God, My God, why have You abandoned Me [leaving Me helpless, forsaking and failing Me in my need?
Matthew 27:46 AMP
