In 539 BC, Daniel read Jeremiah’s prophecy and realized that it was about time for the seventy years of the desolation of Jerusalem to be completed.
Then I turned my face to the Lord God, seeking him by prayer and pleas for mercy with fasting and sackcloth and ashes. (Daniel 9:3)
Did other people, besides Daniel, realize the seventy years were almost complete?
My guess is that many people realized Jeremiah’s prophecy was about to be fulfilled because the Hebrews studied scriptures, but my guess is also that they just accepted it as a fact and did nothing.
Thus, it was Daniel who put his revelation and faith into action so that the Father’s will would be done on earth as it was in heaven. He was then rewarded with a visit by Gabriel and a powerful revelation.
I can’t promise you an angelic visit or a revelation for fasting and praying for the one new man to come forth, but who knows, it might.
My prayer today:
Lord, I’m putting You in remembrance so that we can contend together as a team to bring forth the one new man in this season on Your divine calendar. (Based on Isaiah 43:26)
Join with me on Tuesday’s to pray and fast for the one new man to finally come forth in the Body of Christ.
…that he might create in Himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace (Ephesians 2:15)
