Two things seem to be far different from each other – strength and weakness. But there is a lesson to be learnt in weakness that would give you the knowledge and understanding to function properly during the time of strength. The truth is that strength and weakness are not meant to be kept wide apart . . . the mix as opposed to many people’s opinion would create balance and productivity that has never been experienced.

The weak definitely has a lot to learn but yet without him the cycle of life cannot be sustained. Also, the strong definitely has a lot to offer because of what he has learnt or passed through when as a weak man he lived.

For any change to happen according to GOD’s design there are processes of encounter that must serve as precedence and as time goes by, the point of encounter becomes the platform upon which change originates from and sustained. This place of encounter is the heart of man, the only place GOD desires to dwell apart from heaven. This is where GOD desires to encounter man and from there, HE would begin to wrought works that are holy and perfect and able to proffer lasting solutions in form of righteousness and peace.

TRUTH and DIPLOMACY

The Truth which is a crucial element that serves as the driving force behind all that we do in life and there are many dimensions that constitute to its definition. But in a very simple and clear term, truth can be defined as the reality as it is/should be.

10 | OF ZION, IN BABYLON: Babylon’s Declaration

Daniel 3: 28-30

 

In the end, GOD’s declaration would not even be from our mouth but from that of those who were out to destroy us. GOD is taking us to that point where we only answer to HIM even in the confines of the Laws of GOD and men.

There will come a time when heads of government will declare the sovereignty of GOD. Nebuchadnezzar, the ruler of the world posed as the adversary to the three Hebrews but GOD in His greatness set a table for them before him and all he could do with all his power was to proclaim the greatness of the LORD of those he opposed. The glory of GOD thrives more in persecution.

When tribulation works out perseverance; and perseverance works out character, the hope that never disappoints is a result of the character of CHRIST we have cultivated through this process. Even though the situation seems hopeless, the hope that our character of CHRIST worked out can never disappoint us. This is because CHRIST in us is the Hope of Glory . . . i.e. it is the character of CHRIST in us that makes us hope for HIM even till the end.

09 | OF ZION, IN BABYLON: Babylon’s Assault And GOD’s Defence

Daniel 3: 19-27.

Evidently, all that has been happening can be best described as war!

This war had been brewing within since the day we started our pilgrimage journey even in the wilderness of the world but one day, it would evidently manifest and our abject refusal would always spark rage and persecution.

But as the war rages, we must know that it is never our fight but GOD’s. Our responsibility is to worship GOD in obedience to His commands! When the war finally comes, GOD will surely fight His battle. GOD has been our reason for everything and even when everything is against us, the same GOD would be our reason for victory and HE will take the Glory!

08 | OF ZION, IN BABYLON: Babylon’s Threat And Zion’s Response

Daniel 3: 13-18.
 
Threat does not initially come as threat but as reasoning with the LORD’s people, showing them what they stand to gain in the process of their involvement and the repercussion of not complying will be suggested in a civil manner. It is possible that some people give in to these witty reasoning but those who have resigned all to GOD in worship would never change the direction of their worship away from GOD.
 
Because of their understanding of what is happening and what the end result will be, they would decline this proposal that has been fortified with subtle threats but their refusal is not primarily based on their understanding but on their total trust and unchanging allegiance to GOD even if HE will not save them from the danger ahead. This is Devotion!
 
GOD is the reason why we are where we are and HE must also be the reason for all we do. Our motive is GOD and GOD alone. Trusting HIM till death is a perfect example of giving our lives to HIM . . .
