The Daniel Generation

In our day it’s important to realize we are bridging key cultural shifts. For those my age (somewhere north of 39, you know) it is key we pay attention.

This is a word I think the Lord dropped into my heart as I listened to a great preacher utilize the text from Daniel:

He shall seduce with flattery those who violate the covenant, but the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action. (Daniel 11:32)

As I was listening to the message, these seven thoughts came to my mind and I jotted them down:

  1. We will go through the fire.
  2. We may face the lions.
  3. We are called to discern the times.
  4. We are called to BLESS our enemies.
  5. We will not be loved, generally, by this culture.
  6. We must find our depth in God through fasting, prayer, and the Word.
  7. Know God, stand firm, and take action.

Let us live with power and anointing in these days!

  1. For a wonderful picture of how to live out each of these, I recommend Hadassah’s story in The Mark of the Lion series, by Francine Rivers. Set in Jerusalem, then Rome after the fall of Jerusalem. I noticed so many correlations to our ever changing culture.
