03 | OF ZION, IN BABYLON: Proposition

Daniel 1: 9 – 14

Even though personal decisions have been made based on our convictions in the Law of GOD, we must put everyone around us at rest, especially those who the custodians of Babylon have assigned to us. Their report must be a good one to save them from cruelty and unnecessary complications even though we cannot afford to flow with the tide of the world.

This is the time to prove GOD before the people not for the purpose of making them believe that our trust is not in a dead god. This is where works is important after our profession of faith in GOD and His Laws.

Our proposition must never be out of a competitive heart but from a heart that does not want to be marred and changed by the world. This proposition must come from a heart that wants to be fit always in order to be able to serve in GOD’s court and in the epicentre of GOD’s agenda while functioning in the courts of men.

The proposition is futile if it does not prove the basis of our decision. So as we decide by faith, our proposition must be by the same faith. This faith must be kept even till the end. The result of this proposition must relieve us of any complications (not persecution) otherwise, we would either succumb to or weather through the storm of complications and persecutions from the onset. Sadly, this is what happens to most believers in this Babylon called world.

02 | OF ZION, IN BABYLON: Food and Language

Daniel 1: 3 – 8

 Just like JESUS, Daniel would not let the hunger for food and exotics take him away from GOD. Daniel was captured from Jerusalem and taken to Babylon just as we are born into this world but GOD desires that we triumph over this world of sin by righteousness. And this was what Daniel kept in his heart from his time in Babylon till his dying days.

Time and Quality

“But beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the LORD one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
The LORD is not slack concerning His promises, as some count slackness, but is long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” 2 Peter 3:8-9

HEAVEN ON EARTH

Before CHRIST will ultimately come the second time and wrought victory over the world and it’s wickedness, there is a kind of victory HE desires for His saints on earth . . .

Unlike we all have been made to believe, what CHRIST desires is beyond wroughting miracles that come in season or divination of what has happened or what is going to happen. Wat HE came for is far more than what Nathaniels if today are thinking with their natural minds.

DAVIDIC LEADERSHIP: Leadership

2Samuel 7: 1-7

A LEADER’s destination is to a place where he would eventually becomes a RULER of those he leads and those he does not lead. At this point he would begin to reign in the affairs of men based on his decisions and the counsel of those he leads . . .

When the time to rule comes, those he has been leading would become governors, captains of fifties and thousands and caretakers of territories he rules.Leading is a prerequisite to rulership that also helps in grooming people that would lead groups of people in time of the ruler’s reign.

DAVIDIC LEADERSHIP: War and Children

1Samuel 3:1-5; Genesis 49:3

In any war or battle, the most saddening and devastating outcome each of the sides would want to prevent is the loss of the lives of children. These are supposed to be custodians or bearers of posterity for generations to come. There are battles needed to be fought before any one tries to procreate and be responsible for lives . . .

It is something to ponder that though David had three wives, he did not bear children until his adversaries could no longer pose a threat to his family, especially the children.

As it is imperative to marry right at the right time, so it is imperative to give birth to children at the right and conducive time for their nurturing. Children must be born in might and the beginning of strength as well as the excellency of strength and power.

This is because they must grow and be nurtured in a condition that is controlled by the parents and that prepares them for what the future holds. They must be raised in an environment that has been taken charged by the people that are meant to nurture them. Their grooming/growing place must be secured!

DAVIDIC LEADERSHIP: Fostering Peace

1Samuel 30: 26-31

What is the essence conquest without peace as the result? There is no wisdom in deliberately turning a friend to a foe by ignoring what needs to be done.

Our conquest is not on the territories we are fighting to protect and present before the LORD even though their hearts must be conquered. Leadership would later turn into rulership and God’s motive is always to rule His people in peace.

All the conquest of David was for Israel and Judah so it would be foolish not to take Judah into account after his victory over Amalek. A man of peace must understand that his war is against the enemies of peace and that a lover of peace could cause war and chaos if he ignores the very people he has been fighting for . . .

There must be a connection between what we do and the people we serve . . . Spoils of war should be evident in the lives of those we are fighting for. Even though our journey of leadership is that of faith, there are people who are still in the realm of seeing is believing . . . and whatever we do by faith must be a testimony to heighten their belief in GOD.
