Whom is This? Day 3 – Daniel the burden-barer

The Lord opened my eyes to see the beauty of His Son Jesus while reading Daniel Chapter 10. – Day 3 – Verse 3 – Third letter of Hebrew Alphabet – Gimel

“I ate no delicacies, no meat or wine entered my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, for the full three weeks.” Daniel 10:3 

Gimel - 3rd Hebrew letter Word Picture: Camel Meaning: to lift up, transport, kindness, service, burden-barer

Custom – mourners do not speak and stay inside.

Anointing oil is for joy – Daniel stayed “within” in prayer; he was burden for his people.

Jesus was hungryBurden- barer “And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.”Matthew 4:2 (ESV)

“Though he (Daniel) was now a very old man, and might plead…” quote from Matthew Henry 

Jesus “denied Himself, and did not plead…He chose to “lift up” prayer and devotion.

In Jewish lore, the letter Gimel, reflects a person who is running (can you see the two legs?) after someone to show them kindness.

If you have ever been to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, most likely you would have seen a camel waiting at the top of the descent, offering tourists the opportunity to take a ride.

The camel pictured here, was the same camel waiting for our group to come in 2011 and 2014. One look at his callous knees, and the amount of times he has to get up and down, I think you would agree, it is an act of kindness on his part.

I have often thought of this hardworking burden-barer, wondering if he will find a special place of honor, and rest beside the throne in our Kingdom heaven. I would like to believe his reward will be great for faithfully serving pilgrims over the many years.

May your day be filled with joy in the knowledge of the One Who left His throne to run after us with His acts of kindness and love. Jesus, Who bore our burden all the way to Calvary.

  1. May your day be filled with joy in the knowledge of the One Who left His throne to run after us with His acts of kindness and love. Jesus, Who bore our burden all the way to Calvary. — Thank you for this. May this joy in Jesus be yours too.


  2. A journey of the heart. Thanks for blog. My fervent hope and prayer is also that animals who have served human-kind particularly with love and true servant hearts will have a place of peace and honour when they die.
