Christ is Risen

Re:Verse passage – Daniel 6:1-28 (day seven)

He is Risen!

Daniel 6:17 “A stone was brought and laid over the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the signet rings of his nobles, so that nothing would be changed in regard to Daniel.”

Darius and the satraps thought they had sealed Daniel’s fate. They made sure that no one was going in or out of the lions den. But God had other plans!

Matthew 27:66 “And they went and made the grave secure, and along with the guard they set a seal on the stone.”

Pilate and the pharisees thought they had sealed Jesus’ fate. They made sure that no one was going in or out of the tomb. But God had other plans!

Ephesians 2:1 “And you were dead in your trespasses and sins.”

Satan and the demons thought they had sealed our fate. They made sure that we could not reach heaven. But God had other plans!

The same Power that saved Daniel from the mouth of the lions and raised Christ from the dead, is the same Power that personally gives each of us new life!

He is Risen Indeed!!

  1. Thank you! “God had other plans.” We dare never assume what those plans are. We always need to come before Him in fear and trembling! Daniel is full of cases where God’s people are saved from worldly threats. The Old Testament is full of cases like that! The New Testament has many cases like that. However, it is as true that James was executed as the first New Testament martyr. Martyrs have filled the pages of history through the centuries. “God had other plans.” Like Shadrack, Meashack and Abednego, as well as Job, we need to continue to take our stand “though He kill me, yet I will worship and serve Him!” He is risen! We will be as well one day. Halleluiah!
