A study illuminating Jesus in Daniel, Chapter 10.
“And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men who were with me did not see the vision, but a great trembling fell upon them, and they fled to hide themselves.” Daniel 10:7
Daniel was alone – “cut off” by himself.
Daniel heard the sound of Jesus’ voice which is also found in Revelation 19:15 – “mouth like a sword” – Jesus is coming to “bring completion”.
Of Daniel – “His attendants saw not the vision; …There is a divine revelation vouchsafed to all, from converse with which none are excluded who do not excluded themselves.” – quote by Matthew Henry
Man cuts himself off from Christ and His revelations.
A revelation found in the Hebrew word “remember”.
“The Hebrew word for remember is zakar. The Hebrew letters (Zayin, Kaf, Reysh for remember) can visually illustrate, to remember is the weapon in the palm of the hand of the person. Our highest weapon in spiritual warfare is to remember.
The next time the evil one shows you lack, remember the Lord is your Shepherd, and you “shall not want”; when sickness plagues the day, remember, “with His stripes we are healed” and when the world asks, “Where is your God?” remember Jesus and His “steadfast love.”
The first time Jesus used the word remember in the New Testament, He said, “Remember the five loaves of bread…” there is the number five again; Grace! Let us enjoy this Travel Truth spending the day remembering, “Grace and Truth came through Jesus Christ!” John 1:16”
