Until The Ancient Of Days Came
Daniel 7:21 “As I watched, this horn was waging war against the saints and defeating them,
(7:22) until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the kingdom.”
The horn represents a religious Roman kingdom that reigned (AD 538 to AD 1798) after the Civil Roman Kingdom (168BC to AD538) came to an end. This kingdom was opposed to the saints. This kingdom though religious, it did not conduct itself and it’s business in line with scripture. This kingdom therefore fought against saints who were faithful to scripture.
The fight was unbalanced since the kingdom had machinery, systems and resources. The saints were facing defeat but had not need defeated. The saints were rounded up, imprisoned, tortured and even killed. Things were getting out of hand and saints faced extinction. Until the Ancient of Days came.
The Ancient of Days is one of the many names of God. The appearance of God in the scene changed everything in favor of the saints. It’s good news that the Ancient of Days came into the scene.
The Ancient of Days doesn’t wage war with the horn kingdom. The Ancient of Days just pronounces judgment. Just speaks. The word from the Ancient of Days is potent. That word that created everything, now creates victory for the almost despairing saints. That word still gives us victory even today.
Two things from the Ancient of Days changes the whole scenario. First is His appearance. Second is His pronouncement. Just that, and the horn is stopped on its tracks. Just appearance and pronouncement of the Ancient of Days ends the reign of terror of the horn kingdom. The appearance and pronouncements by the Ancient of Days brings victory and new lease of life to the saints.
The time came when they possessed the kingdom. This time is yet to come. This will be when Jesus returns the second time to establish His permanent kingdom. He will gladly reign for eternity with His saints. This reign of Christ and the saints is made possible by the appearance and pronouncements of the Ancient of Days.
The saints are those who believe in God. They are experiencing difficulties but be patient until the Ancient of Days appears and pronounces judgment in your favour. Your victory is not in fighting back. Your victory is in the Ancient of Days.
Until the Ancient of Days appears let us persevere. Don’t lose hope and faith, the Ancient of Days is coming. He is never late and will never allow His saints to be defeated. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are ever present to step in and help us in time of need. It doesn’t matter which member of the Godhead steps in, what matters is that at the end we are saved from sin and our situations. God appeared in the burning furnace, in the Lions den and in time to raise Lazarus from the dead. Even today the Ancient of Days and the other members of the Godhead are watching our lives, ready to step in. Everything changed when the Ancient of Days came into the situation that threatened the saints.
May the Ancient of Days watch over us and step into the scene of our despair, in Jesus name. Amen! (C)email@example.com (do not delete any part of this post, including this.
