The appointed time

Daniel 11 : 33 - 35 (NIV)

33 “Those who are wise will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered. 34 When they fall, they will receive a little help, and many who are not sincere will join them. 35 Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.

Reading the Bible and currently my daily reading has brought me to the book of Daniel.  When reading it I must tell you that I feel awed by the amazing and spectacular visions Daniel was honored to receive from the Lord.  On reading the vision and just focusing on all Daniel has heard seen and experienced I must be honest in saying I am awed by the visions.  

Thinking of the times we are living in and looking at our world right now it almost seems like we are in the ‘appointed time’.  There are constant wars waged against Israel.  Russian’s are at war, Americans are at war.  Ebola is taking many lives in Africa.  Things are truly upside down.  Shouldn’t we get back to basic and call upon the Lord our God of Israel, in the Holy name of Jesus Christ? 

Or do we believe we have so much time left it won’t matter; it’s still in the future.

And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is for you. It is also for your children and for all who are far away. It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
