Daniel 2: 1 – 9
Babylon is an unfair system! It gives from the realm of possibility but expects impossibilities in return. Babylon nurtures so that he could kill and siphon every virtue out of his subjects. This is the exact opposite of what GOD desires for His people.
The world is a system that lures people in so as to demand impossibilities they cannot deliver even after all the ‘investments’ it must have made on them. The world system does this just to justify the destruction of the same people he lures. And rightfully, he would be justified unless GOD’s mercy through the death of CHRIST prevailed.
The ultimate reason behind the devil’s nurturing is simply destruction. he dulls their senses and fill them with all shades of lies till they could no longer believe in the Truth of the LORD that brings salvation – JESUS CHRIST.
Every magician, wise man and soothsayer could not solve the problem that the king of Egypt put before them because the same king has dulled their senses by his delicacies and encouraged them to practice spiritual exercises that would never connect them with the realm of GOD where answers are in abundance.
The irony behind all these is that GOD used this impossible scenario to establish his own people because HE rules in the affairs of all men. So the fact that the devil will never stop what he does through men is the same reason why the intensity of the Glory of GOD will multiply in the lives of His people . . .
