How many lions’ teeth are you willing to bet your future on? Your family’s future?
As I have been praying this Thanksgiving, 2020, this is what God laid on my heart. I will give thanks to my God who is in Heaven. Will you?
People often say that one person can’t do much. That’s just not Truth.
This is Truth –
ONE man prayed to God and would not stop.
Then the king wrote a decree that EVERY nation and EVERY tongue will worship God. See Daniel 6.
Will you be that ONE person?
Lions have three types of teeth: (information from lionalert dot org)
Incisors, the smallest teeth at the front of the mouth, are used for gripping and tearing meat.
Canines, the four largest teeth (either side of the incisors), can reach up to 7 centimeters in length. They are used to rip skin and tear away meat.
Carnassial, the sharpest teeth at the back of the mouth, act like a pair of scissors to cut meat.
Lions can open their jaws up to 28 centimeters wide, giving them one of the animal kingdom’s biggest bites!
People in our world are now telling people to report and tell on others who are gathering together, who are singing praises to our God, who are choosing to breathe instead of bowing to other gods hindering breathing by using face diapers of many kinds.
In Bible times, Daniel was told not to pray to God. Daniel did anyway because… well, because God is his God.
Hear this part:
The men who TOLD on Daniel to the king were thrown into the lions’ den,
AND so were their wives,
And their children were thrown into the lions’ den also.
The lions ate their bodies up before they hit the ground. The lions chewed on their bones. Check out Daniel 6 in The Bible.
God will be worshipped and prayed to.
NOTHING will stop this.
The SAME God who closed the mouths of the lions for Daniel, who would pray to Him no matter what, is the same God who allowed the lions to eat the people up who tried to stop the worship.
Our God is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Choose sides wisely. Either way you go, if it costs you your life, and it likely will, Heaven and Hell are both real.
You’re choosing one of them even if you’re not choosing. Know this. Not choosing is still a choice.
Every knee will bow to Jesus. Eventually this WILL happen. EVERY knee. God has been patient.
And as you gather (or don’t) and you praise God today (or don’t) remember He will not be mocked.
2 Philippians 2:10-11 …at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven AND on earth AND under the earth, AND that EVERY tongue WILL confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
All day I’ve been thinking about those lions’ teeth.
And EVEN IF God chose to not close the mouths of the lions we will still worship Him.
There’s no time to waste. He is worthy to be praised.
Then King Darius wrote to ALL the nations and peoples of EVERY language in ALL the earth:
“May you prosper greatly!
“I issue a decree that in every part of my kingdom people must fear and reverence the God of Daniel.
“For He is the living God
and He endures forever;
His kingdom will not be destroyed,
His dominion will never end.
He rescues and He saves;
He performs signs and wonders
in the heavens and on the earth.
He has rescued Daniel
from the power of the lions.”
