Book Of Daniel

PRAYING IN THE DEN

This story takes place in the sixth century B.C. Daniel was a smart kid with a bright future, but as a young adult he was part of the exile of the Jewish people taken captive to Babylonia. Daniel was a man without fear, who believed his prayers were for a hearing God and found great grace among his captors. First, he got them to change the menu and serve them healthier foods. He served in the king's court and was elevated to prominence when he interpreted the king's dreams and was put in charge of all the wise men in the land. Daniel's visions and prophecies and stories stood the test of time. He was put in charge of the court and called the president of the land. He was preferred above the princes and presidents because there was an excellent spirit in him. They could find no fault in him; he is trustworthy, not corrupt nor negligent, so they assembled together to trap him with a decree the king would sign and issue stating no man can petition God in prayer for thirty days. Daniel left his windows open and continued to pray giving thanks before God. Because of his rank and office they sought to bring Daniel down. Daniel fell into royal disfavor when he disobeyed the order King Darius decreed for all not to pray or be tossed to the lions. They locked Daniel in the cave, a lion's den, overnight with ferocious hungry beasts, but Daniel continued to pray and was not afraid. He persevered in prayer. God sent an angel to shut the mouths of the beasts and protected Daniel who survived the night, the lions laying down like purring  kittens, and Daniel released into the dawn of the morning to the king, elevated again, really as a witness to the truth and the power of God, and the triumph of prayer, faith, and love over fear. And King Darius issued a new decree to all the people, nations and men of every language throughout the land that they must now revere the God of Daniel: "May you prosper greatly! I issue this decree in every part of my kingdom people must honor 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." And Daniel prospered because he believes in God!

King Solomon & The Queen of Sheba

"There was never a king like Solomon

Not since the world began

Yet Solomon talked to a butterfly

As a man would talk to a man"

--Rudyard Kipling

King Solomon, son of David and Bathsheba, lived in a palace of gold. He had the power to move nations. He had great wealth, good health, unbelievable abundance, riches and fame, but these were not the things Solomon sought the most. He wanted wisdom and understanding, and God grants his wish and his mind is transformed with knowledge, common compassion and sense, spiritual insight, a keen mind, heart to God, and in tune with all of nature. He is calm in the sight of bees, learned to build with trees, watches the caterpillar change and approaches the butterfly with "Thank you" and "Please!", and sets his sights on the birds' flight and stars at night.

 

"When the queen of Sheba heard about the fame of Solomon and his relation to the name of the Lord, she came to test him with hard questions. Arriving at Jerusalem with a very great caravan-with camels carrying spices, large quantities of gold and precious stones-she came to Solomon and talked with him about all she had on her mind. Solomon answered all her questions; nothing was too hard for the king to explain to her....She said to the king, 'This report I heard in my own country about your achievements and your wisdom is true. But I did not believe these things until I came and saw with my own eyes. Indeed, not even half was told me; in wisdom and wealth you have far exceeded the report I heard.' "

--1Kings10: 1-7

Solomon is in his young thirties, famous for his wisdom and wit, his lavish wealth, his songs and wives. Much has been written about Balkis the Queen of Sheba, Queen of the South. They believed she came from the southernmost point of the then known world. She came to Jerusalem and hung out with Solomon. He's the wealthiest in the extreme sense, good-looking, who had the best of the best and most of the gold yet these were not the things he had sought. When God offered him a gift of his choosing he chose knowledge and wisdom and he was transformed into the wisest of all and these other blessings followed him. How many of you, given a wish for anything in the world, would ask for wisdom? Solomon's fame traveled the commercial world and the Queen of Sheba arrives in Jerusalem with gifts and caravans of followers and is greeted by a cart of Solomon's wives. Some of what's written about the Queen of Sheba is man's speculation but the truth of who she is can be found in the Bible and she is drawn to Solomon spiritually like a story from the Bible, and it would be an awesome study listening to Solomon's commentary. Balkis is different from his other visitors. She brings him gifts of things he has never seen, spices he is smelling for the first time; she is royalty seeking true wisdom and in awe of the magnified magnificent Solomon.

"King Solomon was greater in riches and wisdom than all the other kings of the earth. All the kings of the earth sought audience with Solomon to hear the wisdom God had put in his heart."

--2Chronicles 9: 22-23

Solomon's wisdom is Divinely inspired. Balkis, the queen of Sheba, follows Solomon's fame seeking an audience with him to test him with hard questions and he responds with quick, versatile, innovative, natural examples, framed in light with "an understanding heart to judge the people and discern between good and evil." There is no hesitation in him for he is spiritually blessed with greater knowledge and deep understanding and insight. Wisdom is the power that discerns and utilizes the innermost truth of things, finds and practically applies whatever is essentially Divine. Solomon expresses this wisdom in many ways, including books, literary compositions, through history and science, and architectural undertakings. Proverbial is the Book of Proverbs. Poetic are his songs and psalms. Solomon is the songwriter of Song of Songs in the Bible. Socratic, by question and answer, are like riddles-"dark sayings" and the interpretation thereof. The Queen of Sheba communes with him and shares what's in her heart. She remains amazed that all she has heard about Solomon's achievements and wisdom are true, exceeding all expectations she had, and her eyes are full of wonder at the splendor she beheld. Solomon's accomplishments and tales of his wisdom spread abroad through all countries and his fame attracts kings and queens to his court to hear his oracular insight, as well as to gaze upon his grandeur.

Biblical poem

by Uncle John


God gave us the ten commandments and calls it Law
To the people of this planet in the time since the fall
And the ashes in the black mud will be raked up
So that we can drink from the fountain of life´s golden cup

God said first of all honor God
Before him there is no greater fame
Second honors his name
Third request for a day of rest
And for your father and mother do your best
It is not up to you to judge if they are good or bad
God says it is crucial that you respect mom and dad

God then said not to steal
Other people's lives
Other people's wives
Other people's things
God said enough lies
Don't covet the greed in your heart
Don't think about wasting time, don't let it start

Can you hear what he's saying?
"People, I warn you not to meddle
In their married life
Don't mess with this gem
Or will you pay a price?
People I warn you
Do not interfere in their married life "

Don't miss God's word as a warning
Will judge you from the inside out
Asks you to keep these commandments
Love and honesty are what it´s about

God gave us the ten commandments and calls it Law
To the people of this planet in the time since the fall
And the ashes in the black mud will be raked up
So that we can drink from the fountain of life´s golden cup

 

Poema bíblico

 

Dios nos dio los diez mandamientos y lo llama Ley
A la gente de este planeta en el tiempo transcurrido desde la caída
Y las cenizas en el barro negro serán rastrilladas
Para que podamos beber de la fuente de la copa de oro de la vida

Dios dijo ante todo honrar a Dios
Ante él no hay mayor fama
Segundo honra su nombre
Tercera solicitud de un día libre
Y para tu padre y tu madre haz tu mejor esfuerzo
No depende de ti juzgar si son buenos o malos
Dios dice que es crucial que respetes a mamá y a papá

Dios entonces dijo que no robara
La vida de otras personas
Esposas de otras personas
Cosas de otras personas
Dios dijo: basta de mentiras
No codicies la codicia en tu corazón
No pienses en perder el tiempo, no dejes que empiece

¿Puedes oír lo que está diciendo?
"Gente, les advierto que no se entrometa
En sus vida matrimonial
No te metas con esta joya
¿O pagarás un precio?
Gente te advierto
No interfieras en sus vida matrimonial "

No se pierda la palabra de Dios como advertencia
Te juzgará
Te pide que guardes estos mandamientos
El amor y la honestidad son todo lo que te pide

Dios nos dio los diez mandamientos y lo llama Ley
Para la gente de este planeta en el tiempo transcurrido desde la caída
Y las cenizas en el barro negro serán rastrilladas
Para que podamos beber de la fuente de la copa de oro de la vida

 

Un niño los guiará

Él es ligero al final del túnel
De amar a un niño que es amable
Un milagro para encontrar
El cielo en mi mente
Un reino donde un niño los guiará
El espíritu de toda bondad en él
Luz como estrellas en el cielo que brillan
Un niño los guiará

Vienen a un establo
Para encontrar un niño que los guíe
Algunos dicen que fue la estrella en movimiento
Algunos dicen que fueron los ángeles
Algunos dicen que fue sobrenatural desde lejos
Fue un niño nacido para todas las naciones
Para llevar a todos a las buenas noticias
Para dar esperanza en un tiempo difícil y oscuro

Nos acercamos al dia
Cuando el lobo y el cordero juegan
Donde las vacas y los leones deambulan juntos
Un niño guiará ellos

Él es ligero al final del túnel
De amar a un niño que es amable
Un milagro para encontrar
El cielo en mi mente
Un reino donde un niño los guiará
El espíritu de toda bondad en él
Luz como estrellas en el cielo que brillan
Un niño los guiará

 


Jesus loved company.
It was the prostitutes and the players, the people of the street, the humble ones that surrounded Jesus.

Mary Magdalene, a beautiful, vain and lustful young woman, freed from her demons by Jesus, became a close friend of Jesus. Mary lay at the feet of Jesus at home listening to him.
 

Mary Magdalene had such a special relationship with Jesus
She is the one who could hold on to him
She was the first one he appeared with and spoke to
When he rose from the dead

Mary was crying
She was standing outside the grave where the dead Jesus lay
When she looked in the grave she saw two angels.
And without a corpse
They Asked
"Woman, why are you crying?"
"They have taken my Lord and I don't know where he is"
She turned around and saw Jesus standing there.
But she didn't recognize him
"Lord," she said, "do you know where they took my love? Tell me and I'll catch him."
Jesus told her
"Mary" and instantly she recognized him
She turned around and shouted
"Teacher!"
Calling her name moves her heart with such a joyful feeling
Jesus told her
“Do not hold on to me now, because I have not yet returned to the Father.

 Instead, go with my brothers and tell them

You have seen me

He is alive, with a mission to accomplish."
