Daniel 2: 10-23.
In critical times, man’s inspiration fails and only the revelation of GOD is able to keep us safe and true. It is in these critical times that we would know those who spend time with the king in Babylon or the KING who presides over Zion.
During critical times of life, men of earthly inspiration quickly give up because they cannot go beyond the realm of men and men of GOD get solutions because they are always tuned to GOD’s heart. People always wonder why principals in Babylon always resort to suicide. It is because whatever is beyond their level of inspiration can only be solved by death i.e. keeping them from humiliation. It is not strange that death is what they always think of because as strange as it sounds; death is the only choice that comes to their mind – Pride of life!
Daniel’s song of gratitude reveals that without the revelation of GOD through CHRIST, that brings wisdom and power, man has no answer to the world’s question other than death. GOD’s answer to the questions of this world is that HIS Life would destroy everything that the dead world represents and HIS Peace would be ultimately established on earth as it is in Heaven.
All these experiences in Babylon is for the purpose of establishing the truth and power of GOD. Just like the magicians in Egypt, it must be proved by GOD’s orchestration that the revelation of CHRIST through the HOLY SPIRIT is the only way to navigate life till we finally attain the Life HE purposed for us. Some critical situations are for the purpose of establishing in the hearts of people that there is a GOD that makes mystery seems normal and that it was this life of mystery that man was living before his fall.
The aim of every critical situation is the revelation of GOD. It is really orchestration for the revelation of GOD if we are not the one orchestrating these scenarios. When something like this wants to happen, GOD always keeps us in the dark and bring us to the light of things when all inspirational options have be expended and exhausted . . .
