taking instruction

Written by Bruce Haley

Read Daniel 9 and II Timothy 3

In the first year of Darius, the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the
Medes, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans; in the first
year of his reign.  I Daniel, understood by the books the number of the
years, concerning which the Word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, the
prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of
Jerusalem. Daniel 9:1-2
All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction and for training in righteousness. II Timothy 3:16

The books (scrolls) were Jeremiah’s writings. This is what God
intended for Daniel and other men to share for the common good of
others. We are all men serving the same master. When the opportunity
appears and we use it for many, we have fulfilled God’s desire.
Jeremiah made it clear when he said, “and this whole land shall be a
desolation, and an horror; and these nations shall serve the King of
Babylon seventy years.” 

God says what He means and He means what He
says. We have a loving Father, and we must learn to take His
instructions seriously.
