People Who Know Their God Will Take Strong Action

I received this from my subscription to The Elijah List.  Because I believe it is timely and informative, and with The Elijah List’s permission, I help disseminate it here:

People Who Know Their God Will Take Strong Action

From the desk of Steve Shultz:
I like the King James translation of this verse using the word, "Exploits":

Daniel 11:32 "...but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits." KJV

The definition of "exploits" is:

"A bold or daring feat: 'the most heroic and secretive exploits of the war.'"
How good it will be when we know our God more and more, such that the entire Body of Christ is anointed by the power of Jesus and His Cross; being fully indwelt by the explosive baptism of the Holy Spirit. What happens then?
GREAT EXPLOITS... "heroic and secretive exploits of [spiritual] WAR!

To find out more about the part you play in the exploits to be revealed in your life, read Rick Joyner's well-timed article.

Rick Joyner: People Who Know Their God Will Display Strength and Take Action 

As mentioned previously, The Holy Spirit is "the Helper" not "the Doer." He will do His part, but He expects us to do ours. It is good to be able to recognize the work of the Holy Spirit, but we must not stop there. We must go on to seek Him for what our part is and then do it.

We cannot be the salt and light we are called to be without being engaged in these times. Jesus called those who were more devoted to understanding the weather than the signs of the times "hypocrites." To be the light we are called to be, it is crucial that we understand these times.

Because the Spirit "searches all things, even the depths of God" (see 1 Corinthians 2:10), no one who is truly led by the Spirit will be shallow in their understanding. If we are led by the Spirit, we will love the truth enough to seek it out. We will be compelled to have a depth to our knowledge.

Even if we are convinced that the rapture will spare us from the Great Tribulation, what the Lord Himself prophesied as "the beginning of birth pangs" (see Matthew 24:8) should be enough to motivate us to prepare for difficulties. However, our preparation for the times is not just for survival, but also for doing our part as laborers in the greatest harvest the world will ever see.

Display Strength and Take Action

In Daniel 11:32 we see that when "the abomination of desolation" is being set up, "the people who know their God will display strength and take action." We are not here to cower nor hoard. We are not only to seek safety for ourselves, but we are here to prepare the way for the coming Kingdom. Those who are truly following the King will display strength and take action.

The world is getting darker, fast. However, we are here for a reason. In times of greater darkness, greater light is needed and will be given. As deep darkness covers the earth, it will be our greatest opportunity of all time to walk with God and be His messengers.

Do you have the message? Are you beholding the glory of the Lord? Can others behold His glory on you? 

We are told in 2 Corinthians 3 that we should be experiencing more glory than Moses did. We have a better covenant than Moses had. We can have a closer relationship to God than Moses did, and Moses met with Him face to face. Even so, and much better than that, He has come to live in us! He never leaves us.
Do we see the One who lives within us? Do we see His glory? If we do, others will see it in us.
