Daniel 9: iRepent | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 23 –

iRepent

We have been doing a series of events leading up to the Call called iRepent. We will be seeking to achieve the great repentance that is necessary to turn our city and nation around. Through the past couple of years, my wife and I have been shown – thru dreams, real life experiences, and by scriptures – the main principalities and powers that dominate our city and prevent revival and awakening in America. The Church is completely responsible, because Christ gave  us  all of the authority. So we have to turn our hearts to God in order to excercise that authority correctly.   

One of the main points that God keeps emphasizing is that Daniel turned a nation repenting and praying all by himself! He saw what was happening according to scripture. He responded in fasting, prayer, sackloth and ashes. God responded by sending Him one of the highest ranking angels. God used His response of faith and humility to get His will done on earth. He also revealed to Daniel even more mysteries for further down the line of history.

Read Daniel 9.

Some of the main points:

Daniel got deep revelation of scripture. – Daniel responded to the Word of God with fear and trembling. He dove so deep into it that he realized it was time for its fullfillment. Then He responded with full knowledge of the seriousness of what Israel had done, knowing all the sins they have committed and how serious they were. He didn’t gloss over anything, because He understood the book of Jeremiah and the Torah.

Daniel knew His role. – Daniel understood the God/Man partnership. God is Sovereign and Man has been given authority. He knew He was responsible to pray into the will of God. He knew God presented His word not just to be heard, but to be interacted with, and engaged in, and acted upon.

Daniel repented by himself! – One man turned a nation by repentance, prayer, sackcloth, and ashes. What can you do by yourself to turn your city or nation to God and have the highest ranking angels fight for God’s will, and trumpet a message in response to your words?

Daniel repented for things he didn’t even do. – Daniel repented on behalf of his whole nation and took responsibility. Oftentimes its our little sins that allow the world to release big sins against us. We give the devil an inch in us, and that gives him a mile in the culture, and he can send his enemies after you according to what you did. But you can even turn your heart to God concerning the things you didn’t do. You can sigh and cry and fast and pray for any abominations done, and God will respond and reward you.

Daniel repented physically as well as spiritually. – Daniel understood the principle “First the Natural, then the Spiritual.” He didn’t just pray it and say it. It got deep in his mind, and then it changed his emotions as well. Then he changed his clothes from fancy clothes to rags (sackcloth). He put dust on his face (ashes). He stopped eating pleasant food, choosing to avoid meats, sweets, and maybe even bread (Daniel 11 fast). Maybe he only ate raw food for a time (Daniel 1 fast). He may have even went all-water for a couple of days (water fast). He got physical with his turning to God.

God responded with power, authority, affection and revelation. – Power – the nation was set in path to fulfill Jeremiah and return to Jerusalem. Authority – one of the highest ranking angels, Gabriel came to Him personally. Affection – He was called beloved of God. Revelation – he ended up with further knowledge of God’s mystery and plan.
