DANIEL THE MAN – LESSON 9
THE SIN OF PRIDE
 
Chapter 4 of the book of Daniel is a perfect example of Proverbs 16:18 which says (KJV), “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”
 
King Nebuchadnezzar spoke pridefully in verse 30 as he said, “Is this not great Babylon that I have built for the house of the Kingdom by the might of my power (pride) and for the honour of my majesty (haughty)?”
 
This chapter was written in the “first person” by Nebuchadnezzar himself and sent out to people of all nations and languages (vs. 1) of the known world. Daniel records it in his book.
 
Nebuchadnezzar had a dream in verse 5 which “scared the daylights out of him” (my words). The magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, soothsayers and wisemen could not give him the interpretation. At last came Daniel, and the King described his dream as follows:
 
There was a large strong tree in the middle of the earth that grew tall unto heaven. It was fair (beautiful) to look upon and all creatures were sustained by its fruit. Then a “watcher” and “holy one” came down from heaven and cried out to cut down the tree but leave its stump in the ground to be with the beasts of the field of grass and let the stump have a beast’s heart for “seven times.”
 
Daniel interpreted the dream. The King was the tree and had become great in strength and dominion (rulership). The words of the watcher and holy one in verse 24 were; “the decree of the Most High (God).”  The King (for his pride – hubris in Greek), would be humbled and made as a “mad man” (my words), driven out of the capitol city of Babylon to live with the wild beasts of the field (forest) and eat grass like the oxen. This would last for seven “times”, i.e., seven years, until he would come to his senses to understand that only “the Most High ruleth in the Kingdom of men, and giveth (Kingdoms) to whomsoever He will (chooses).” (vs. 25)
 
The “stump of the tree roots” will hold the Kingdom for him until Nebuchadnezzar acknowledges that the God of heaven does rule, and not any human that God raises up.
 
Daniel urged Nebuchadnezzar to stop his sinning and turn to righteous rule, and perhaps God would lengthen peacefulness (tranquility) to him. The King did not take Daniel’s advice as he continued in his prideful and corrupt pagan ways. Twelve months later he made that prideful and arrogant boast in V. 30 (previously quoted) and immediately God audibly spoke condemnation to him. That same hour madness overtook him, and he was “put out to pasture” as shown in the dream. 
Others ruled the Kingdom on his behalf for seven years after which in v. 34 it says, “…mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the Most High, and I praised and honored Him that liveth forever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion.
 
He was restored to his throne as Daniel had said. He published his story throughout the known world to give glory to the Most High God.
 
Only Jehovah could set this forth and give Daniel the interpretation. 
 
Human pride, thinking so highly of ones’ self, was even considered by Greek philosophers to be the greatest of all sins. (Hubris.) The Holy Bible also condemns such pridefulness. Jesus taught humility and meekness (Matthew 5:3, 5). Matthew 5:3-9 are qualities the Lord admires and encourages. May we be more like that.

NO FEAR
 
For years I had an issue with fear at night. It came into my soul realm as a child. I was delivered of it supernaturally and have not had a problem since. It tried to come back but I resisted it.
 
With the present state of things throughout the entire world, the spirit of fear has gripped its hand around the throat of many people, including believers. So often I hear, “What will we do if…...?” The problem with that question is that the person speaking it doesn’t know the word of God. For every problem there is a promise!
 
II Timothy 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.” You will notice the first part says that God has not given us the spirit of fear. So, if God didn’t give it to us then there is only one other source, and it comes from Satan, himself. He uses fear to control.
 
With the world crumbling under the fear of Covid19, and the vaccination that is being pushed (with no known results that it will work) the fear has increased out of proportion. I personally will never take the vaccination. I do not believe that it is the answer to Covid19, and I also believe it has things in it that can destroy a person instead of helping them. You may disagree with me, and that is your right. I choose to say that all of this is “fear controlled” and that it is not of God. Yes, there is Covid19. It is real, but God’s word is the weapon to destroy it, not a vaccination.
 
The second part of II Timothy 1:7 says that God has given us the spirit of power. That word power is the Greek word dunamis, which means miraculous power. It is the same word used in Acts 1:8 that Jesus said would be given us when the Holy Spirit comes on us. That power brings miracles, not fear. It is the same root word that dynamite comes from, and that is powerful. 
 
The third part of II Timothy 1:7 says that God gives us the spirit of love. The Greek word is agape, which means affection, benevolence, a feast of love. Fear never brings love. It brings torment. God wants his love showered on us in such a way that we know that He will take care of us no matter what the situation is.
 
The fourth part of II Timothy 1:7 says that God gives us the spirit of a sound mind. When a person is consumed by fear they cannot make rational decisions. Their minds are blinded to the word of God, and they fall victim to this confusion. God wants us to know that He gives us a sound mind. No dementia. No Alzheimer’s. No worry, no care. Just complete soundness in mind. Fear destroys the soundness. 
 
So, we must ask ourselves if we are controlled by fear, what spirit is behind it? Fear invites Satan to your house and gives him permission to stay there. If he has done this, it is time to kick him out and put a no trespassing sign on your front lawn. God doesn’t want you controlled by this spirit my friends. Don’t you think it is time to trust him in every area of your life? 
 
Remember, God has given you, power (like dynamite), love (the father’s love) and a sound mind. You don’t have to live with fear any longer. If you have fear in your life then resist it by the Word of God, and it will have to flee. 
 
Here is a prayer to say using II Timothy as the prayer. Speak it over yourself:
 
           God has not given ME the spirit of fear.
           God has given ME the spirit of Power.
           God has given ME the spirit of Love.
           God has given ME the spirit of a sound mind.

In the name of Jesus, I resist the spirit of fear and its hold over me and command it to leave me now. I will not fear any longer for God is my source of peace! Amen!
           
When it tries to come back (and it will), just say no, I won’t give in to it any longer. 
 
NO FEAR!

A PROPHETIC EXHORTATION

I hear the Lord saying: Waymaker! Don't give up, press through!

APOSTLE PAT MURRAY
PROPHETIC EXHORTATION
3-19-2021

You may want to seriously consider not spending a lot of time with anyone who tends to be double minded. Actually to be a double minded person simply means that one is not able to make a firm decision...And then stick to it. Double mindedness usually comes from a deep root of rejection that occurred some time in one’s past. Then at some point IF that rejection is not dealt with properly; It can and it often does spring back up in a life from the hurt that began sometimes even way back in their past. In studying these type things you find that it’s been well documented just how this deep seated rejection will most always lead to...REBELLION and BITTERNESS in a person’s life. Then IF not very cautious these 3 things, REJECTION, REBELLION and BITTERNESS will cause one to move on into and begin to operate in a JEZEBEL spirit; Which in turn will ultimately cause them to move in and take part in praying witchcraft and soulish prayers of serious control and manipulation. (I Sam. 15:23) So be careful to guard your heart; For it will determine what coarse your entire life ends up taking.
PROPHETIC WORD
This is a prophetic word given by Kenneth E. Hagin about the future of the United States.
