Sermon note (Encounter Night)

  • Pastor Prince

A great part of the bible is bible prophecy 

Why did we study bible prophecy? 

The hope in Him coming, this hope purify and give you wisdom. Wisdom is the stability of your time. 

The people of the world knows the what of the world and we know the why. 

We need to study bible prophecy. 

A great part of the bible is prophecy. Many of it has come to past. Entire book of revelation has not been fulfilled. 

Romans 9 and 11, Israel will always be 

Israel has ideas coming up. 

70 is the nos of years they will be in captivity in Babylon 

The ABC of bible prophecy. 

There a lot of moral truth we can learn from Bible Prophecy. 

Luke 21:24

And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

Jewish people are all over the world since then. 

1948, Jerusalem was not theirs. 

6 days they surround the walls of Jericho and on the 7th day it was theirs. 

The times of the Gentiles 

Wisdom will be the stability of your time. 

Gentiles are non-Jews

Sacrifice is the picture of Jesus Christ. 

God’s dream for Israel is that they should rule from Jerusalem 

Israel supposed to be the priesthood. The light house. 

God’s dream for them that they are with the power. People that follow God and have Him as their God. 

Everything they touch prosper. 

God wanted to Israel as the lighthouse but Israel failed. 

Babylon came in. Took the Jewish people captive. 

Daniel 1

They were 10 times smarter than the people of Babylon. 

Learn how to tap into God’s wisdom. 

Only God has the answer. 

Every need is as unique as the person himself. Only the Lord has the answer to it. 

You cannot make one answer fit all. 

Joseph when he was 17 he was chosen by God to fulfil a call that no one else can. 

Daniel 2:1-49

Daniel 2:1-4

Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream

Now in the second year of Nebuchadnezzar’s reign, Nebuchadnezzar had dreams; and his spirit was so troubled that his sleep left him. Then the king gave the command to call the magicians, the astrologers, the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans to tell the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king. And the king said to them, “I have had a dream, and my spirit is anxious to know the dream.”

Then the Chaldeans spoke to the king in Aramaic, “O king, live forever! Tell your servants the dream, and we will give the interpretation.”

Daniel 2:5-9

The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, “My decision is firm: if you do not make known the dream to me, and its interpretation, you shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made an ash heap. However, if you tell the dream and its interpretation, you shall receive from me gifts, rewards, and great honor. Therefore tell me the dream and its interpretation.”

They answered again and said, “Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will give its interpretation.”

The king answered and said, “I know for certain that you would gain time, because you see that my decision is firm: if you do not make known the dream to me, there is only one decree for you! For you have agreed to speak lying and corrupt words before me till the time has changed. Therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that you can give me its interpretation.”

Daniel 2:10-19

The Chaldeans answered the king, and said, “There is not a man on earth who can tell the king’s matter; therefore no king, lord, or ruler has ever asked such things of any magician, astrologer, or Chaldean. It is a difficult thing that the king requests, and there is no other who can tell it to the king except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.”

For this reason the king was angry and very furious, and gave the command to destroy all the wise men of Babylon. So the decree went out, and they began killing the wise men; and they sought Daniel and his companions, to kill them.

God Reveals Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream

Then with counsel and wisdom Daniel answered Arioch, the captain of the king’s guard, who had gone out to kill the wise men of Babylon; he answered and said to Arioch the king’s captain, “Why is the decree from the king so urgent?” Then Arioch made the decision known to Daniel.

So Daniel went in and asked the king to give him time, that he might tell the king the interpretation. Then Daniel went to his house, and made the decision known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions, that they might seek mercies from the God of heaven concerning this secret, so that Daniel and his companions might not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. So Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

Whatever your needs are, there is a Father in heaven who will reveal the secret to you. 

You will understand what is happening. 

Only God can tell you what will happen hereafter. 

Daniel 2:35-36

Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

“This is the dream. Now we will tell the interpretation of it before the king.

The kingdom of Christ will establish on the earth. 

Daniel 2:37-38

You, O king, are a king of kings. For the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory; and wherever the children of men dwell, or the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven, He has given them into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all—you are this head of gold.

The power came from God directly. God governs the affair of man. 

Always the air the land and the sea. 

The sea is missing here because a humble Carpenter will pass by the Sea of Galilee and pay the tax for you and me. 

Above every kings that is every live. 

When Christ was born He was a stone cut out without human hand. He came, He is a God and He became Man. 

If you refuse to flow with Him, He will come again and take His rightful place. 

Daniel 2:39-45

But after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to yours; then another, a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.”

Daniel 2:46-49

Daniel and His Friends Promoted

Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face, prostrate before Daniel, and commanded that they should present an offering and incense to him. The king answered Daniel, and said, “Truly your God is the God of gods, the Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, since you could reveal this secret.” Then the king promoted Daniel and gave him many great gifts; and he made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief administrator over all the wise men of Babylon. Also Daniel petitioned the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego over the affairs of the province of Babylon; but Daniel sat in the gate of the king.

  1. Panic/predicament of the wise men (the world claim to be wise and yet no answer to life, how to have abundant life and without been bound. Above all, have God’s wisdom)
  2. Prayer of another wise man, Daniel and his 3 friends
  3. The program of the eternal God
  4. The promotion of the men of God

The world by wisdom does not know God. 

The light of the world is the true light. 

What we have is the sunlight. 

When we step into holy place, there is no sunlight. The only light there is the light of the lamp stand. 

The world only have the natural light. We have the Holy Spirit. The answer to our lives. 

Get God’s wisdom. God’s wisdom is the best. 

A lot of people complicate healing. The simpler your prayer is, the more powerful it is. 

Prayers –

When you open your heart to the king

Prayer changes things. Daniel knew the secret. Daniel wanna time. Time to pray. 

We think prayer is something to comfort. No! Prayer changes things! It will change your future. You have not because you asked not. 

Peter was the only one who got to walk on the water. He asked. 

You have not because u asked not. 

God asked David why he took another man’s wife. He said if it is not enough, you could have asked more and I would have given more. 

God deal with everything. Prayer changes things

Holy Spirit has the access to the most powerful man at that time. 

God can put thoughts in your husband’s head of how valuable you are. 

God drops thoughts into your head. He can speak to you anytime. 

Thoughts come to his head. 

Daniel 2:29

As for you, O king, thoughts came to your mind while on your bed, about what would come to pass after this; and He who reveals secrets has made known to you what will be.

“As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.”

Daniel 2:29 KJV

Hereafter

When you have urgency to pray, pray!

Thoughts come and we ignore and when something happened, it might be too late. 

A soft tongues breaks the bones. 

With God, simple is powerful! Complicated is weak. 

God can make you know things, pray for things hereafter. 

Holy Spirit will put thoughts into your mind hereafter. 

Jesus is my Saviour. 

God leads you with thoughts. Not all thoughts are from God. Confirm with the peace. Our default mode should always be peaceful and at rest. God leads you when there is unrest. Your peace is shaken. That is how God leads you. 

God do not guide with a parked car. 

Your default mode is peace. Is when the peace is shaken you know God is leading you. 

God can give you lack of rest, take your time to pray. Prayer change things. 

Program of God

Greek is a leopard with 2 wings. 

Daniel 7:6

“After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it.

Iron is one man rule. 

Iron and cray cannot meet. 

Revelation 17:3-4

So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.

Horn speaks of authority 

Gold all the way, silver, bronze, iron and clay

If you trust on your own effort, you will start out well and end up bad. 

When man presented, they set out the good wine and the last are not good. Jesus maintain everything and make it better. Jesus turn water into wine. 

As thy days so shall thy strength be!

We will be Word-minded! 

Wash away the wisdom of the world. 

The Lord will give you the best wine! From strength to strength 

Song of Songs 5:10-11

My beloved is white and ruddy,

Chief among ten thousand.

His head is like the finest gold;

His locks are wavy,

And black as a raven.

A picture of divine and man. 

Put the Lord in the centre and He is the chief among 10,000! He is the most radiant and lovely. 

Start with the head, than His hands

Song of Songs 5:15

His legs are pillars of marble

Set on bases of fine gold.

His countenance is like Lebanon,

Excellent as the cedars.

His feet also gold! With the Lord, gold all the way down. 

When you follow the Lord, your ending is certain. Put the Lord first!

Trust the wisdom of God

What we are waiting for is not anti-Christ. 

Just focus on what the bible is clear. 

What we are waiting for is the rapture. When rapture happens, you and I will be promoted to heaven. We will never die ever again. 

Jesus’ feet will not touch down on earth. He will call from heaven. 

Daniel 9

Jesus will return before the nations try to destroy Israel. 

Only one Kingdom will establish and Jesus will reign from Jerusalem 

When He is here, nothing can destroy or hurt in His holy mountain. 

No more need for anything that we are preparing for any protection 

Everything will be right 

Daniel 2:46-49

Daniel and His Friends Promoted

Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face, prostrate before Daniel, and commanded that they should present an offering and incense to him. The king answered Daniel, and said, “Truly your God is the God of gods, the Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, since you could reveal this secret.” Then the king promoted Daniel and gave him many great gifts; and he made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief administrator over all the wise men of Babylon. Also Daniel petitioned the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego over the affairs of the province of Babylon; but Daniel sat in the gate of the king.

We know before Jesus’ return, the glory of the Lord will shine on you stronger and stronger. 

A starry night cannot be seen with city lights. 

From afar when the world is dark, they will see the light.
