THEME: SIGNS OF A PROPHET
“Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm.”
-Daniel a prophet of the Lord was able to accurately interpret dreams through the power of the the Holy Spirit. He disclosed king Nebuchadnezzar’s dream the first time and gave its interpretation when the magicians, soothsayers and all wise men of Babylon could not do it. He also gave an interpretation of the second dream which echoed the first, that king Nebuchadnezzar’s reign would soon come to an end. Given his great pride in seeing that his great kingdom was built by his own hands, king Nebuchadnezzar said, “Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty?” (Daniel4:30). While these word were still in his mouth, king Nebuchadnezzar was judged for his pride, he fell and later realized that all glory and honor belongs to God. Like Daniel, a prophet should have an excellent spirit from the Lord. He/ she should have the ability to see dreams and visions, and accurately interpret them as the Lord reveals. Daniel was put in charge of all the wise men, governors and satraps in Babylon and given other major responsibilities due to the fact that he had the ability to accurately hear from God. Like Daniel, Joseph became a governor in Egypt as he accurately interpreted Pharaohs dreams. A prophet should have the ability to hear from God. He/she should also be a leader, only led by the Holy Spirit. A prophet’s disposition should match his position, as a leader and not a follower, always walking with the Holy Spirit.
