Moving From Babylon to Jerusalem

Moving From Babylon to Jerusalem

on 11 November 2019

In the book of Daniel, we see the beginning of the movement of God’s people from Babylon to Jerusalem. This is a type of what we see today of God-fearing people moving out from compromising Christendom to God’s new covenant church, responding to God’s call that says, “Come out of Babylon, My people” (Rev.18:4).

That movement in ancient Babylon began with one uncompromising man – Daniel. He was concerned about God’s purposes and fasted and prayed for their fulfilment. The building of a pure church for God in any place usually begins with one man who has a burden of prayer before God that says, “Lord, I want a pure church in this place for You, and I am willing to pay any price for it”. You may have to carry that burden for a long time before you see its fulfilment. We have to carry this burden in our hearts, just like a mother carries a baby in her womb. That was how Daniel carried this burden.
